Keine gute Idee: Auf einem ICE als blinder Passagier ... "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Keine gute Idee: Auf einem ICE als blinder Passagier auf dem Dach mitfahren. Ein junger Mann ist in Hamburg hochgeklettert und hat sich dann einen Stromschlag an der Oberleitung geholt und musste per Hubschrauber in eine Spezialklinik bei Hannover gebracht werden. Er hat aber berlebt.

Update: Leserbrief:

Auf dem Dach von Zgen befinden sich in der Regel diverse unisolierte Teile der Stromverteilung, es ist also gar nicht ntig in die Nhe einer Oberleitung zu kommen, und fr den "Laien" auch nicht unbedingt ersichtlich wo dort Gefahr durch Strom besteht. Neuere ICE z.B. haben elektrische Verbindungen zwischen den Wgen auf dem Dach.

Despite Going Through Hell- I AM in NO WAY Suicidal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This whole situation with my dogs is being done as an attempt to destabilize me in hopes I become suicidal. OR they want to hurt me and CLAIM I hurt myself- although doing such is COMPLETELY against my faith and would NEVER happen.

There have been NO calls to the Sherriffs office regarding my dogs EVER and I have letters from my neighbors completely discrediting the one ANONYMOUS complaint my city hall is using to try to take them away from me.

This is not, in my opinion, a coincidence that this happened within days after my interview on Lift the Veil

The attacks against me have been crazy. My Gmail account davidshurter1@gmail was hacked- effectively preventing me from making YouTube videos.

Someone has tried to poison my dogs twice.

I have an army of trolls online trying to discredit me to try and prevent anyone from listening to me- generally using anonymous or fake names.

The good thing however about my Gmail account being hacked is I no longer have to deal with emails from Doug Mesner aka John Kilrush aka IEATBABIES aka Justin Sanity aka Satanic Temples founder Lucien Greaves.

So at least there is THAT silver lining.

I have to admit dont trust the new leaders of this mess who only seem to focus on their OWN claims while completely dismissing the history of this mess.

And have NO doubt- what happened in Omaha in the 80s DOES matter. It IS part of the history of this mess- and those who dismiss it or discredit it are not to be trusted in my opinion.

But let me say- no matter WHAT happens to me I will NEVER commit suicide or intentionally hurt myself in ANY way.

Trey Gowdy Trump Need Not Answer Questions, 2334 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This is a paid sponsorship by: Ray Michelonis, go to www.BillStill.com/StemCell for more information or to order. Good morning, Im still reporting on: Trey Gowdy Trump Need Not Answer Questions, 2334 Synopsis: In our last report, House Intel Committee Chair Devin Nunes was attempting to explain that former top Justice Department Official Bruce Ohr was about to become very important in this investigation of the Trump coup. Now the reason is starting to come out. It appears that after President Trump was inaugurated, the prime conspirators in the FBI/DOJ began to flee government employment to avoid an investigation by the Justice Dept. Inspector General, Michael Horowitz. Now, the British anti-Trumper members of the intelligence community had far fewer connections with the American FBI and DOJ. So apparently this task fell to assoc. deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr and his wife, Nellie, who appears to have been the financial conduit between the FBI and Hillary Clinton. New text messages have finally been surrendered by the Justice Department that increasingly show the scope of the dark criminal web that parked itself over the 7th floors of the FBI and Justice Department in the final months of President Obamas term in office and the months following President Trumps inauguration and probably persists to this day. One of the new texts reveals that British spy Christopher Steele who was spying for Deep State against America and its newly-inaugurated President - was very concerned that Stefan Halper might be forced to return to the U.S. and forced to testify in a Congressional hearing.

The Brutal Syrian Civil War Is OverHeres How The Washington/Saudi Supported Terrorists Were Routed "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In dozens of towns, villages, and cities across Syria, reconciliation agreements have brought fighting to a halt. Some people call them truces, others refer to them as settlements and those staunchly opposed to them call them forced surrenders. Whatever ones preferred label, theres no denying that the reconciliation process has been vital to the de-escalation of violence Syria has witnessed over the past two years.

Ancient octagon-shaped tomb murals depict tales from Mongol-ruled China "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Archaeologists in Yangquan, China, have discovered an octagon-shaped tomb with walls covered in murals that dates back some 700 years, when the descendants of Genghis Khan ruled China. The pyramid-shaped roof of the tomb is decorated with images of the sun, moon and stars, archaeologists said. And one of the murals depicts the story of parents attempting to bury their young son alive. Seven of the walls are covered in murals, while the eighth holds the entranceway. No skeletal remains were found inside, though a mural on the north wall shows the tomb's husband and wife occupants, a team of archaeologists wrote in a report published recently in the journal Chinese Cultural Relics.

President Trump, who has had a tug-of-war with the press throughout his administration, has lately dialed up the frequency and intensity of his attacks at rallies around the country.

White House advisers and people close to the president say his broadsides against the media are in part a visceral response to what he sees as unfair criticism. But they also are part of a campaign strategy to energize Republican voters ahead of the midterm elections, targeting a frustration with...

DOJ slams 'sanctuary' city Philadelphia for giving 'free pass' to criminal immigrants, including child rapist "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Trump administration is taking aim at Philadelphia's political leaders for a string of crimes committed by immigrants the city released in defiance of Immigration and Customs Enforcement requests. The Justice Department this week highlighted the case of child rapist Juan Ramon Vasquez, who just pleaded guilty to illegal re-entry. The illegal immigrant from Honduras previously was in Philadelphia custody on local charges back in 2014. But when those charges were dropped a year later, city officials ignored an ICE detainer. Vasquez was later arrested and convicted for raping a child and unlawful sexual contact with a minor. He is now serving between eight and 20 years in prison. "The facts of this case highlight the danger posed by the City of Philadelphia's decision to disregard ICE detainers and release previously deported aliens from local custody," U.S. Attorney William McSwain said in a statement, accusing Philadelphia of giving Vasquez a "free pass."

Facing Indictment, GOP Rep. Chris Collins Wont Seek Re-Election "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NEW YORKIn an about-face, U.S. Rep. Chris Collins is ending his re-election bid days after the Republican was charged with insider trading.

Collins released a statement Saturday morning saying he will suspend his campaign and fill out the rest of his term. Collins was indicted Wednesday on charges he used inside information about a biotechnology company to make illicit stock trades. He had said later that day he would remain on the ballot despite the indictment and fight the charges.

I have decided that it is in the best interests of the constituents of NY-27, the Republican Party and President Donald Trumps agenda for me to suspend my campaign for re-election to Congress, the statement said.

He went on to say he will fill out his term and continue to fight the meritless charges brought against me. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Wednesdays indictment charges Collins and two others, including his son, with conspiracy, wire fraud and other counts.

Prosecutors say the charges relate to a scheme to gain insider information about a biotechnology company headquartered in Sydney, Australia, with offices in Auckland, New Zealand.

Jessica Proud, a spokeswoman for the New York state Republican party, said no decision has been made about a possible replacement for Collins on the ballot. She said the party is weighing its options.

Venezuelanalysis: Official Statement On Facebooks Removal Of Our Page "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On Thursday morning our Facebook page was arbitrarily "unpublished" by Facebook with no warning or explanation, apart from a standard message informing us that we had allegedly violated the company's terms and conditions. The timing of such a move is concerning for several reasons. Firstly, there is the international context, in which Facebook appears to be targetting independent or leftwing sites in the wake of Russiagate. However, in terms of our own coverage, in the days leading up to our removal, we had published important pieces which challenge the corporate mainstream media narrative on Venezuela. Specifically, we published an article giving details on the assassination attempt against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, as well as a very popular analysis criticising the mainstream media's coverage of the attack.

Keeping it classy: Drunken foursome brawls in front of Bradford, UK pub "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Mixing alcohol and hot weather does seem like a good idea to some pub-crawlers. A vicious street brawl in Bradford's city center was caught on camera; four people who were apparently three sheets to the wind beat each other as onlookers laughed and cheered. A video has emerged online of a brutal alcohol-induced fight between three women and a man in the center of Bradford, West Yorkshire. The three-minute mobile phone clip is believed to have been filmed outside The Turls Green, a Wetherspoon pub. The video beings with a woman in a beige dress lying face down on the ground. A man in a black T-shirt can be seen walking in his socks to pick up his shoe, which is lying next to her. The woman tries to follow him, but she fails to stand up and falls over again, and is cheered on by the crowd.

Thousands of Chinese Muslims join in protest against govt plans to demolish mosque "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Thousands of ethnic Hui Muslims gathered at a mosque in northwestern China to protest its planned demolition in a rare demonstration against the government. The Grand Mosque in the town of Weizhou in Ningxia, which has numerous domes and minarets in a Middle Eastern style, did not receive proper permits before construction, officials in the town said in a notice on 3 August. It would be forcibly demolished on Friday, they added in the note, which was widely circulated among Chinese Muslims on social media. The protest on Friday comes as faith groups, which were largely tolerated in the past, have seen their freedoms reduced as the government seeks to "Sinicise" religions by making the faithful prioritise allegiance to the officially atheist ruling Communist Party. Islamic crescents and domes have been stripped from mosques, Christian churches shut down and bibles seized, and Tibetan children have been moved from Buddhist temples to schools.

John Whitehead: If Americans can't agree to disagree, censorship won't stop until we are ALL silenced "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Americans are begging to be censored by continuing to call for their political, religious, or societal adversaries to be silenced. We must agree to disagree before it's too late. "Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech." Benjamin Franklin What a mess. As America has become ever more polarized, and those polarized factions have become more militant and less inclined to listen to-or even allow for the existence of-other viewpoints, we are fast becoming a nation of people who just can't get along. Here's the thing: if Americans don't learn how to get along-at the very least, agreeing to disagree and respecting each other's right to subscribe to beliefs and opinions that may be offensive, hateful, intolerant or merely different-then we're going to soon find that we have no rights whatsoever (to speak, assemble, agree, disagree, protest, opt in, opt out, or forge our own paths as individuals).

Crooked Republican Chris Collins Is Suddenly Retiring After All "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Early this morning, pre-dawn, NBC News predicted that Chris Collins' political career is unlikely to survive his indictment. "In vowing to remain on the ballot for his re-election race this fall-- despite facing insider trading charges-- New York Republican Rep. Chris Collins joins a not-so-exclusive club of lawmakers who have refused to resign even after being indicted," they wrote. "Unfortunately for Collins, members of that club almost always meet an unhappy fate. Most lawmakers in a similar situation initially vowed to fight, but wound up quickly caving in to bad press and resigning. A handful managed to win re-election only to have to give up the seat later after being convicted."

It was only a matter of a couple of hours before Collins posted the tweet up top. He starts out with a typically deranged Collinsesque statement blaming everyone but himself for his troubles-- the Democrats, Pelosi, a desire to impeach Trump, even on Nate McMurray, his mild-mannered electoral opponent. "Democrats are laser focused on taking back the House, electing Nancy Pelosi Speaker and then launching impeachment proceedings against President Trump. They would like nothing more than to elect an 'Impeach Trump' Democrat in this District, which is something that neither our country or my party can afford."

But then... exactly what NBC had predicted: "After extensive discussions with my family and my friends over the last few days, I have decided that it is in the best interests of the constituents of NY-27, the Republican Party and President Trumps agenda for me to suspend my campaign for re-election to Congress.  I will fill out the remaining few months of my term to assure that our community maintains its vote in Congress...

Canadian oil producers suffering steep price declines, reflecting shortage of pipeline capacity "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Canadian oil producers are once again suffering from a steep discount for their oil, causing the largest spread between Canadian oil and WTI in years. Western Canada Select (WCS) recently fell below $40 per barrel, dropping to as low as $38 per barrel on Tuesday. That put it roughly $31 per barrel below WTI, the largest discount since 2013. The sharp decline in WCS prices is a reflection of a shortage of pipeline capacity. Much of the talk about pipeline bottlenecks these days focuses on the Permian basin, and the unfolding slowdown in shale drilling, which could curtail U.S. oil production growth. But Canada's oil industry was contending with an inability to build new pipeline infrastructure long before Texas shale drillers. However, the problem has grown more acute over the last 12 months. Even as pipeline takeaway capacity hasn't budged, Canadian oil production continues to rise. Output could jump by around 230,000 barrels per day (bpd) in 2018, followed by another 265,000-bpd increase in 2019, according to the International Energy Agency.

Republican Anti-Union Bill Goes Down In Flames In Missouri "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On Tuesday night, voters in Missouri defeated Proposition A, a referendum which would have allowed a "right to work" law to go into effect in the state. This marked the first time a right to work law has ever been defeated by popular vote. It is an enormous setback for Missouri Republicans, who had made imposing this law a signature policy goal after winning full control of the state government in 2016. Right to work laws, which currently exist in 27 states, ban labor unions and businesses from negotiating a "security agreement" in bargaining, in which a union may collect "agency fees" from workers who are not a member of the union. Since unions generally represent all workers in a workplace, not simply their own members, these fees cover the cost of bargaining for nonmembers and prevent free ridership and lead to wage increases.

Your brain contains magnetic particles, and scientists want to know why "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In a remote forest laboratory in Germany, free from the widespread pollution found in cities, scientists are studying slices of human brains. The lab's isolated location, 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Munich, gives the researchers the opportunity to examine a bizarre quirk of the brain: the presence of magnetic particles deep within the organ's tissues. Scientists have known since the 1990s that the human brain contains these particles, but researchers didn't know why. Some experts proposed that these particles served some biological purpose, while other researchers suggested that the magnets came from environmental pollution.

Now that this is settled, I want to present a series of proofs that the United States has meddled in just about every election on Earth. Let's start with Moldova in 2005.

Youve Heard Of The Gender Pay Gap, But Theres More "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The gender wage gap continues to harm women, their families, and the economy, despite women being in the workforce for decades. But not all women are marginalized by this disparity in the same way. In 1996, the National Committee on Pay Equity decided to bring awareness to the wage gap by creating National Equal Pay Day. The day signifies how long it takes for a woman to make the same amount of money a man makes for the year prior. Each year Equal Pay Day for All is held in April meaning it will take an average woman about 16 months to make what a typical man makes in a year. But when we look at the wage gap for women of color, this day of catching up falls way later in the year all the way into August.

Spotify to let free users skip all ads more like Spotify premium "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Spotify, the worlds biggest music-streaming service, is testing a new feature called Active Media in its free tier. This feature will enable users to skip as many audio or video ads as they like, according to a new report by Ad Age. Currently, the feature is only available in Australia.

For those unaware, Spotify is a freemium service that offers free basic features but with advertisements that cannot be skipped. However, those who pay for premium service need not sit through frustrating advertisements to enjoy their dose of music.

Earlier in March this year Spotify revealed that At least two million users blocked ads without paying

Spotifys head of partner solutions, Danielle Lee, explained that unlimited ad skipping is something the company is interested in because it will learn which ads interest specific members by tracking the promotions, members most enjoy hearing or viewing. By doing this, Spotify will know which ads does each user allow to play to the end, informing Spotify about their preferences in the process and tailoring the ads to their liking.

With Active Media, Spotifys advertisers wont actually have to pay for any ads that are skipped by the customers; they just need to pay for the ones that customers select to watch or listen to till the end. According to Spotify, this will help them learn and create enough convincing ads that its free tier users are willing to hear or see. This will help them customize ads, and offer advertisers the opportunity to participate in more focused campaigns.

Our hypothesis is if we can use this to fuel our streaming intelligence, and deliver a more personalized experience and a more engaging audience to our advertisers, it will improve the outcomes that we can deliver for brands, Spotifys global head of partner solutions Danielle Lee told in an interview with AdAge. Just as we create these personalized experiences like Discover Weekly and the magic that brings to our consumers, we want to inject that concept into the advertising experience.

Also, the company is now trying to boost free tier users in several ways, and ultimately convince them to pay for Spotify Premium.

When asked if Spotify has plans to expand Active Media beyond its Australian trial, a spokesperson for Spotify said, Spotify has a global advertising business that enables marketers and brands to reach audiences in 65 markets around the world. We launched Active...

The shooting inspired the national Black Lives Matter movement, now a powerful force in progressive politics. The incumbent prosecutor has never prosecuted a cop for killing an unarmed civilian in his seven-term history. Bell, who carried 57 percent of the primary vote according to the unofficial result, is now the presumptive winner of the general election because no Republicans are running for the seat.

Freedom Flotilla Passengers Released By Israel "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Defending their illegal blockade of Gaza against what they see as infiltrators rather than activists bringing aid and making a point, Israeli soldiers physically assaulted a number of delegates and arrested them, including a USS Liberty survivor. U.S. Navy Signalman Joe Meadors was standing watch on deck of the USS Liberty off the coast of Gaza on June 8, 1967 when a 90-minute aerial and sea attack by Israel against the ship killed 34 U.S. sailors and wounded 174 . Meadors watched as the Israeli military almost sank the Liberty and began machine-gunning the lifeboats. A 2003 U.S. commission led by Admiral Thomas Moorer found Israel guilty of the attack. But the motive is still shrouded in mystery. Fifty-one years later, on July 29, Meadors was again on board a ship in international waters, again off the coast of Gaza.

Iran promises to safeguard trade with partners through Strait of Hormuz amid sanctions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Earlier, Admiral Hossein Khanzadi Khanzadi pointed out that security in the Strait of Hormuz will be provided by Iran's naval forces and the country's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi has pledged that the country will maintain security for marine trade routes in Iran's territorial waters in the northern and southern areas, according to Fars news. "The [Iranian] Navy will guarantee safety of all Iranian exports and imports in Northern and Southern waters, where 90 percent of the exports and imports are being conducted. We are equipped with the most complicated infrastructure and manpower to ensure sea, air and coastlines security," he underscored. The statement came after Khanzadi noted that the security of the Strait of Hormuz, which he said would be maintained by Iran's navy and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), will "influence those who threaten Iran by using their petrodollars." "If any oil faucet in the region is turned on and the petrodollars go to the pocket of those who threaten Iran, it will definitely have an impact on the security of the Strait," he pointed out.

Quiet Skies, TSA surveillance program targets Ordinary U.S. Citizens "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Journalists revealed a new surveillance program that targets US citizens, the program was previously-undisclosed and code named Quiet Skies.

According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), that has admitted the  Quiet Skies, the program has monitored about 5,000 U.S. citizens on domestic flights in recent months.

Quiet Skies was criticized by privacy advocates because the authorities have begun monitoring U.S. citizens that arent suspected of a crime or of involvement in terrorist organizations.

The domestic surveillance program aims at collecting extensive information about the movements of the citizens and their behaviour.

The previously undisclosed program, called Quiet Skies, specifically targets travelers who are not under investigation by any agency and are not in the Terrorist Screening Data Base, states a bulletin issued in March by the TSA.

The Agency is monitoring individuals who have spent a certain amount of time in specific countries, who have visited those counties within a certain period of time, or that have made a reservation which includes email addresses or phone numbers associated to terrorism suspects could trigger monitoring.

Passengers remain on the Quiet Skies watch list for up to 90 days or three encounters, whichever comes first, after entering the United States, according to the TSA. Travelers are not notified when they have been added to the watch list.

Every day about 40 to 50 people on domestic flights are selected under the Quiet Skies program and on average, air marshals follow and monitor about 35 of them.

Even The Young Turks Are Accusing Cory Booker Of Lying About Why He Was Holding An Anti-Israel Sign "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hosts of the far-left political commentary show The Young Turks have accused Senator Cory Booker of lying about his claim that he did not realize he was holding an anti-Israel sign when he posed with activists at the progressive Netroots Nation conference.

The sign the New Jersey senator and likely contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination was photographed holding read, From Palestine to Mexico, All the Walls Have Got to Go.

After speaking with members of the anti-Israel group U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights (a group that endorses the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement) during the New Orleans conference last weekend, Booker happily took a photo holding their sign.

Once the outrage began, he backpedaled and claimed he didnt read it before posing with it. His office also denounced the sign within hours of it going viral on Twitter.

Just before delivering a speech in New Orleans, Senator Booker was approached by dozens of people for photos, Jeff Giertz, a spokesperson for Booker, said in a statement.

In one instance, amid the rush, he was posing for a photo and was passed a sign to hold he didnt have time to read the sign, and from his cursory glance he thought it was talking about Mexico and didnt realize it had anything to do with Israel, Giertz said. He hopes for a day when there will be no need for security barriers in the State of Israel, but while active terrorist organizations threaten the safety of the people living in Israel, security barriers are unfortunate but necessary to protect human lives.

It isnt just the right that is calling BS on his claim. The Young Turks urged the senator to just be honest about it.

Please stop insulting our intelligence, TYT founder Cenk Uygur began. So, apparently this is a group that is the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights and they had a conversation with Booker before taking the picture. So, he knew they were arguing in favor of Palestinian rights, it wasnt that it was just for Mexico. Look, hes a saavy guy. Sometimes right-wingers come take pictures with me and they go oh haha, how the...

FCC Lied To Congress About Made-Up DDoS Attack, Investigation Found "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Federal Communications Commission lied to members of Congress multiple times in a letter that answered questions about a "DDoS attack" that never happened, an internal investigation found. The FCC made false statements in response to a May 2017 letter sent to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai by Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii). Pai sent a response to Wyden and Schatz the next month but apparently didn't make the false statements himself.

Back in those long-gone days, the Gray Lady was strictly a black-and-white print publication, lacking the large color photographs of rap stars and long stories about dieting techniques that fill so much of today's news coverage, and it also seemed to have a far harder edge in its Middle East reporting. A year or so earlier, Shamir's predecessor Menacham Begin had allowed his Defense Minister Ariel Sharon to talk him into invading Lebanon and besieging Beirut, and the subsequent massacre of Palestinian women and children in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps had outraged the world and angered America's government. This eventually led to Begin's resignation, with Shamir, his Foreign Minister, taking his place.

Microsoft is working on InPrivate Desktop sandbox feature for Windows 10 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Windows 10 may get a new InPrivate Desktop security feature

It seems like Microsoft is looking to add a new security feature in Windows 10 (Enterprise) that it calls InPrivate Desktop. This possible upcoming new security feature was initially discovered by Bleeping Computer who captured it with a screenshot that contained relevant details from the Microsoft Feedback Hub. However, it has now been removed from the Windows 10 Insider Feedback Hub quest.

Microsoft has described the InPrivate Desktop feature as a throwaway sandbox for secure, one-time execution of untrusted software, reports Bleeping Computer. The upcoming InPrivate Desktop feature has also been described as an inbox, speedy VM (virtual machine) that is recycled when you close the app.

For those unaware, Sandbox is a security mechanism for separating running programs, usually in an effort to mitigate system failures or software vulnerabilities from spreading.  It is often used to execute untested or untrusted programs or code, possibly from unverified or untrusted third parties, suppliers, users or websites, without risking harm to the host machine or operating system.

It appears that Microsoft is planning to strengthen the Windows Defender on Windows 10 with native sandbox support and it is looking to target Windows 10 Enterprise starting with build 17718 for all branches. The InPrivate Desktop requires at least 4GB of RAM, 5GB of free disk space, 2 CPU cores, and CPU virtualization enabled in the BIOS, and hypervisor capabilities enabled in the BIOS. See the reproduced image below for more information.

Microsoft is yet to comment on the new feature. With Windows 10 Redstone (RS5) expected to roll out to mainstream users in October 2018 or so, it is unlikely that the InPrivate Desktop feature will make into RS5. However, there may be chances of it getting featured in the next release for Windows 10, codenamed 19H1.

China "Three-Child Policy" Hinted by Stamp Design? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

China hints at three-child policy with 'happy family' stamps

Speculation is mounting in China that the country is set to further relax its two-child policy and allow people to have more children.

Postage stamps unveiled earlier this week to mark the incoming Year of the Pig in February 2019 have led many social media users to question whether a loosening of family planning restrictions could be imminent.

The stamps show a parent pig couple and three piglets. On the surface, it hardly appears to be a policy announcement. But users on the popular Sina Weibo microblog have pointed out that two years ago, before the one-child policy was abolished, China issued Year of the Monkey stamps featuring two baby monkeys.

And in recent months, the Chinese government has been strongly encouraging couples to have more than one child. Local authorities have even been offering incentives, such as tax breaks, and education and housing subsidies.

A 2015 UN report projected that China's population would decline to about 1 billion by 2100, although some experts put the number even lower.

A boon for Republicans? Pelosi viewed by many as a 'drag' on the Democratic party "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Most of America is not impressed with sexually perverse or aberrant people. Even though the elitist liberal entertainment media and especially West Coast liberal enclaves would have us believe that everybody thinks this perversity is to be lauded (so we should too), this is not true. However, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is not aware of that. Perhaps this is a good thing for Republicans. The SFGate.com website, home of the SFGate news and Chronicle publications of San Francisco, heralded Nancy Pelosi's appearance at a drag queen contest as a significant political event, especially when Mrs. Pelosi, who claims to be Roman Catholic, threw slop all over her faith by both being a judge at this event, and by comparing the success of politicians to that of these men who dress as women and who are often sexually deranged. After appearing on an episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that politicians could learn a thing or two from drag queens. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter about her appearance on the show Thursday night, Pelosi said, "This idea of people believing in themselves, being themselves, taking pride in themselves, is not just a lesson for politicians but for everyone in the country. And that's why I was so excited and couldn't resist being on the show."

The Military-Security Industrial Complex: Brainwashed Public. Endless Wars Presented as The New Normal? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Richard Galustian
Global Research

Why has it become acceptable that we and particularly our children take for granted wars to be normal? It is because of the profits of Defense companies?

According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the US continues to have the highest military expenditure of any country in the world. In 2017 the USA spent more on its military than the next seven highest-spending countries combined. At $610 billion, which does not include the strongly rumored secret funds available to the military/security industrial complex, thought to be an additional $200 billion; and they will do absolutely anything, and I mean anything, to protect their interests. Many expect that Congress by 2020 will approve close to a Trillion dollars a year budget for them!

Media is a critical part of their strategy.

Every type of media.

Social media in particular but that is a whole other subject of investigation of itself. Will leave that for someone else to write about. The reason of this piece is to open a window by giving one particularly pertinent example for the reader of the Pentagons influence on Hollywood and mention other facts seemingly kept hidden from the public, about how we treat our veterans.

The Military/Security Industrial Complex have a never ending quest to counter movies that do get through their net that put American soldiers and wars in a bad light.

The fact is that America and their surrogates are involved today in 2018 in 76*, yes 76 wars around the world. Another shocking fact is that U.S. military forces have directly been responsible for at least 15 million deaths since WW11.

(*This number was quoted in the closing minutes of an hour special on the legendary Seymour Hersh by DEMOCRACY NOW with Amy Goodman last month.)

These include the Korean and Vietnam Wars also including fatalities in Cambodia and Laos. The two Iraq Wars and Afghanistan, alone caused in excess of...

He was armed with bandages: Israeli forces kill second Palestinian paramedic during Great March of Return "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It seems that the killing of paramedic Razan al-Najjar in June by an Israeli snipers was not a tragic one-time occurrence. Her colleague, Abdullah al-Qatati, joined her on Friday, hours after a truce brokered by Egypt and the United Nations envoy to the region was declared in Gaza and after two hot nights in which two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire.

Al-Qattati, 22, was shot in the chest near Rafah in southern Gaza while treating Ali al-Alloul, 55, who was also killed at the same time. The Gaza Health Ministry reported that more than 200 protesters were injured during the 20th weekly protest of the Great March of Return.

Yes, Abdullah was armed, his colleague Mohammed Sahweel, 27, said in the Abu Yousef Al Najjar Hospital in Rafah, he was armed with bandages and surgical facemarks.

Does a paramedic deserve a bullet in the chest for rushing behind the injured boys? Sahweel wondered in tears.

According to Al-Qatatis colleagues who gathered outside the hospital morgue, he was a summer camp supervisor throughout the week except Fridays, when he served as a paramedic.

In a video taken of Al-Qatatis mother as she realized her son death, she collapsed and said: Stop telling lies, do not tell me he was killed, Abdullah must be wounded and will be back to me again after get recovered.. Get back to me darling!

On June 1, the 20-year-old al-Najjar was shot in the chest with the single bullet, exiting through her back, while she was trying to help wounded demonstrators in Gaza near the perimeter fence with Israel.

An investigation conducted by Israeli human rights organisation BTselem concluded that Israeli security forces deliberately shot and killed al-Najjar, contradicting the Israeli armys claims that it was an accident.

Last month, Israeli daily Haaretz reported that an internal Israeli investigation was set to absolve its military of responsibility for the dozens of unarmed protesters killed by live fire during the Great March of Return.

Senator Rand Paul-A Mighty Voice For Peace "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

But this part of the story was the most revelatory: Rand Paul has persuaded the president that we are not for regime change in Iran, this person said, because adopting that position would instigate another war in the Middle East.

This is significant, not because Trump couldnt have arrived at the same position without Pauls counsel, but because its easy to imagine him embracing regime change, what with virtually every major foreign policy advisor in his cabinet supporting something close to war with Iran.

Questions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Sarah Smith (face visible)

The other discussion on the Boris/burqa issue on Today this morning was conducted by Sarah Smith, formerly of The Sunday Politics.

It was a slightly embarrassing interview to listen to because it became evident that Sarah, unlike many of us, hadn't been keeping abreast of the story and was severely under-prepared. She'd clearly not been paying attention to social media and certainly hadn't read Guido Fawkes or the Spectator's Steerpike - and others - who spent a lot of time yesterday unearthing examples of similar or 'even worse' jokes and comments about burqas from the BBC, the Guardian and various politicians from Emily Thornberry to Ken Clarke. Sarah was interviewing Andrew Bridgen MP and Mohammed Amin, chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum and ended up getting herself into a right mess. She allowed a highly clued-up Mr Bridgen (who'd evidently read and remembered the whole lot!) to run rings around her somewhat.

Here's a brief flavour of it - unfortunately lacking the tone of Sarah Smith's voice, which made it sound as if every example Mr Bridgen gave had come as a surprise to her:

Sarah Smith: Andrew Bridgen, should Boris Johnson apologise if only to put this row to bed? It's been a week now that it's been dominating the news. That must be very concerning for you and the party?
Andrew Bridgen: Well, that's self-perpetuating, and this is nothing about what what Boris Johnson said. What we do know now is that it's about Boris Johnson. Far worse or far more inflammatory remarks with regard to the burka and niqab have been said by celebrities on the BBC on Have I Got News For You, Polly Toynbee has written about it in the Guardian, the Guardian have written about it, Emily Thornbury has spoken about it, Ken Clarke spoke about it, no outcry at all. This is actually about diminishing, humiliating Boris Johnson because he's seen as a po...

The Empire Reads History / or / Rationalizing the End of Empire "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

BRIN55623423

When the Brookings Institute acknowledges it, you know its official: the great American Century is over. However, there are attenuating circumstances, which are explained in an article titled Trump and the Crumbling of the US-led World Order. According to a discussion among Robert Kagan and other Neo-conservatives, the successful international order created by the US after World War II was vulnerable on two fronts: internal complacency and external pressure from authoritarian regimes. Most recently, Trump supporters brought that pressure home.

The postwar task of the US was to maintain general peace through multi-polar competition. Brookings use of that term is surprising, given that the US is currently pushing back with everything it has against Russia over its implementation of a multi-polar world but more about that later. Apparently, heres where the US went wrong: Having US forces keep the peace by occupying Japan/Germany was too narrow a view of our interests, and when [the first Gulf War] undermined the international order, we realized we had to expand NATO to keep the peace.

However contradictory this reasoning may sound to foreign ears, its goals were to be implemented through a political process known as convergence, which would lead to a world of responsible stakeholders, after the chaotic nineties. (The Cold War theory of convergence was that capitalism and communism would converge into a social democracy acceptable to both sides, and this still has not happened.)

In his book All Measures Short of War, (a reference to F.D.R.s pledge to use all measures short of war to defeat fascism), one of the participants in the Brookings discussion, Thomas J. Wright, tells us that the new convergence is achieved through the elimination of something called balancing:

Balancing describes how a major power will push back against another country that it sees as especially powerful or threatening and can involve arming your rivals enemies...

Swedens government has been given a direct hotline to Facebook to remove unreasonable things and problematic campaigns, news outlet Samhllsnytt reports, and this is just in time to silence their opponents in the upcoming elections.

The call has been made. Infrastructure Minister Peter Eriksson MP has described the cooperation between Facebook and the government to delete unwanted content in a candid interview.

The politician commends the willing cooperation of the social media company. At the same time, more and more of the opposition are leaving social media.

Yesterday in a feature in Studio One on Swedens Radio P1, the Minister shared the results of the governments pressure on Facebook and other digital giants. He stated that the Swedish election is threatened and Facebook kept their promise to the government.

Facebook has promised the government a direct hotline. Both direct contact with MSB but also directly to the political party secretaries so they can alert them when they see something they feel is problematic. He stated that theyve already made contact and that it seems to work.

Elijah went a days journey into the desert,
until he came to a broom tree and sat beneath it.
He prayed for death saying:
This is enough, O LORD!
Take my life, for I am no better than my fathers.
He lay down and fell asleep under the broom tree,
but then an angel touched him and ordered him to get up and eat.
Elijah looked and there at his head was a hearth cake
and a jug of water.
After he ate and drank, he lay down again,
but the angel of the LORD came back a second time,
touched him, and ordered,
Get up and eat, else the journey will be too long for you!
He got up, ate, and drank;
then strengthened by that food,
he walked forty days and forty nights to the mountain of God, Horeb.

EDZ continues to be a a too-good-to-be-true story for many Lebanese and has been under attack for the past weeks for unexplainable reasons. In fact, Energy Minister hinted that they didnt want to renew the license and recently newly elected Zahle MPs were asking people at one point not to settle their bills because the cost per kilowatt is too high.

I dont have the full story but from what I hear from my Zahle friends, the fact that they have 24/7 electricity encourages them to spend more electricity throughout the day and results in higher electricity bills consequently. However, the amounts are peanuts compared to the exorbitant prices were getting charged by generators and its pretty idiotic for anyone to attack EDZ.

Moreover, if EDZ is doing anything wrong, Im sure theyre much easier to approach than EDL and going on the offensive against them will harm Zahle residents first and foremost.

Cop terminated from force after telling black men they dont belong in his city "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Acop who followed two black men for no reason before telling them they dont belong in the city of England, Arkansas, has been fired and his badge has been stripped upon the departments review of key video footage captured at the time of the altercation.

In the video, Officer Mike Moore can be heard telling Demarcus Bunch and his cousin Shannon Scribner: [] you dont belong in my city.

Bunch responded by telling the officer that he graduated from England high which apparently didnt go over to well with the muscle-bound meathead.

The officer said: But you understand. I know who my people are, right? Who belongs here and who doesnt? Weve got gang wars going on and all kinds of stuff. And I come from the big city. But this stuff is small, OK? So thats cool. Do your thing.

Looks like this cop will be looking for a new job.

Largest strike in Ryanair's history leaves 400 flights cancelled and thousands of passengers affected "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

More than 70,000 passengers have had their Ryanair flights cancelled today as a result of the biggest strike in the airline's 34 year history. Pilots across Europe have coordinated a day of industrial action on what is one of the busiest days of the summer. The airline said that 250 flights into and out of Germany have been cancelled, along with 104 flights serving Belgium, 22 services to and from Sweden, and 20 between Ireland and Britain. Ryanair has declined to say which specific flights have been grounded, or how many UK departures have been cancelled, but The Independent estimates that up to 100 British flights, and 18,000 passengers, could be affected. Berlin Schenefeld, Gothenburg and Stockholm Skavsta have seen the majority of Ryanair services grounded.

Snowflake newspaper Boston Globe wants to organize country's press into war of words against Trump "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A Boston newspaper is proposing a coordinated editorial response from publications across the U.S. to President Donald Trump's frequent attacks on the news media. "We are not the enemy of the people," said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe, referring to a characterization of journalists that Trump has used in the past. The president, who contends he has largely been covered unfairly by the press, also employs the term "fake news" often when describing the media. The Globe has reached out to editorial boards nationwide to write and publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what the newspaper called a "dirty war against the free press."

The Roadmap for 'Rusi-Pakistani Yaar Yaar' (buddies) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Russia and Pakistan are well on the their way to reaching a strategic partnership with one another in light of four very high-profile events from the past two weeks, and sticking to the roadmap of "Rusi-Pakistani Yaar Yaar" ("Russians and Pakistanis are buddies") could allow their relations to blossom to the point of resembling Moscow's Soviet-era ones with New Delhi that were popularly known as "Rusi-Hindi Bhai Bhai" ("Russians and Indians are brothers"), albeit this time the Kremlin will be seeking to "balance" affairs in South Asia instead of decisively siding with one country over the other. Four High-Profile Visits In Two Weeks Russian-Pakistani relations are at their best-ever point in history and only continue to strengthen by the day, putting these former Old Cold War rivals way past the point of a rapprochement and well on the way to clinching a strategic partnership. These past two weeks have represented a milestone in their ties and saw four high-profile visits between these two states. The first one took place last week and saw the Pakistani Vice Chief of Naval Staff and a few ships from his country's flotilla travel to Saint Petersburg and attend Russia's Navy Day celebrations and participate in its maritime parade. Moscow and Islamabad consequently sealed a naval cooperation deal with one another too that will importantly help Russia deepen its influence in the Afro-Bengal Ocean, a centuries-long strategic goal of the continental Eurasian state.

Burqas, Boris and the BBC "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



Theres an ugly intolerance of honest expression afoot in our era, and we should notice. When entirely respectable people start saying that women who choose (or are forced) to cover their faces in public should be shielded from the knowledge that most of Britain hates this practice, then wed better watch out. 

Not a woman in a burqa

If you spend too much time monitoring the BBC, reading Twitter and keeping up with the latest news and views from politicians and pundits via the media (guilty as charged) then you might find yourself surprised at the public's reaction to the Boris/burka story. 

And even I've been surprised at the dismissive/incredulous reactions I've heard about this story - especially as some of them have come from my most Boris-hating, Brexit-loathing friends. 

If even they think that that Boris in this case had done (and said) nothing wrong and that there's actually something sinister about the criticism of him then maybe his critics should pause for thought. 

(Naturally, a couple of them also expressed the hope that the row might, nevertheless, finish him as a politician.)

Top forestry official out in Malaysia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A top official is out of his post as head of Sabahs forestry department, which oversees forests in the Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. According to press reports, Datuk Sam Mannan will be removed from his role as head of the Sabah Forestry Department. No reason has been given for the action, but the director had been slated to step down. The Star reports that Mannan was given three months notice effective Aug 1. The news follows revelations that Sabahs former Chief Miniser Musa Aman is being investigated by Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in the aftermath of his partys poor showing in Malaysias May general election. Aman lost his position in June when Sabahs state assembly backed rival Shafie Apdal as Chief Minister. Mannan served under Aman since 2003. Mannans reign as Sabahs top forestry official was not without controversy itself. Often blunt and outspoken toward critics, he aggravated timber companies and won accolades from conservationists by converting hundreds of thousands of hectares of rainforest in forestry concessions into permanent forest reserves, making them off-limits from logging and safeguarding them for Sabahs endangered species like orangutans and pygmy elephants. He angered environmentalists but pleased palm oil companies by re-zoning nearly 100,000 hectares of degraded forest land for oil palm plantations. He drew the ire of local community groups with what they saw as harsh crackdowns on forest encroachers, but won recognition internationally for his willingness to experiment with new approaches to tropical forest management,

Ich rgere mich ja immer darber, wie Progressive ... "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ich rgere mich ja immer darber, wie Progressive konservative Ideen und Personen einfach per se ablehnen, ohne sich inhaltlich auseinanderzusetzen. Die Konservativen haben ein hnliches Problem, wenn es um Sozialismus geht. Da kommt dann immer das Argument, das habe noch nie irgendwo funktioniert.

Dieses Argument ist mir so vllig fremd, dass ich mich immer frage, ob ich eine Hirnmutation habe, dass ich der einzige bin, der Fremdschm-Kopfweh kriegt. Oder liegt das daran, dass ich Ingenieur bin?

Man stelle sich mal vor, den Wright Brothers htte das jemand gesagt. Wir haben jetzt schon so hufig Fliegen probiert und das hat noch nie funktioniert! Also geht es nicht!1!!

Wie absurd!

Wieso bringt irgendjemand so ein offensichtlich schwachsinniges Argument? Und wieso werden die dann nicht sofort von allen Zuschauern ausgelacht?

Ich habe mir ja selbst die Mission auferlegt, mich aktiv solchem Gedankengut auszusetzen, das mir bis daher fremd war, oder dass ich ohne inhaltliche Auseinandersetzung davor nicht rezipieren wollte. Das waren dann Youtube-Videos von Konservativen wie Jordan Peterson und sogar Ben Shapiro habe ich mal probiert. Den finde ich kaum ertrglich, und der bringt obiges "Argument" gegen den Sozialismus auch immer wieder. Und der gilt bei den Konservativen als einer der Intellektuellen!

Wo wir gerade bei Ben Shapiro waren. Der hat krzlich der neuen Hoffnung der Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, ein Debatten-Angebot gemacht. Er sogar wrde $10000 an ihren Wahlkampf spenden, wenn sie kommt und eine Stunde mit ihm debattiert. Und was hat sie gemacht? Nichts. Als dann die Nachfragen von Dritten zu nervig wurden, uerte sie sich wie hier zu sehen. Sie bezeichnete das Debatten-Angebot als "unsolicited request from men with bad intentions" und verglich es mit Catcalling (wenn Bauarbeiter Frauen hinterherpfeifen).

Tja, soviel zur Hoffnung der Democrats. Ja super. Traut sich nicht, sich einem rechten Talkshow-Intellektuellen auszusetzen. Hmm, vielleicht ist Politik dann nicht die richtige Karriere fr die gute Frau, wenn sie Angst vor Argumenten der Gegenseite hat?

Forest elephant DNA diverse, consistent, and distinct, study says "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Male elephants wander. As they mature and prepare to breed, they roam great distances in search of estrous females. These movements are key to elephant population dynamics: by breeding with females far from their family, males promote gene flow and ensure a genetically healthy population. In Africa, males of both forest and savanna elephants travel and compete for access to females to the extent of hybridizing, but what does this mean for elephant conservation? Over the last decade, research has shown that the DNA of forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis) differs sufficiently from that of savanna elephants (L. africana) to be considered a separate species. A recent study examined the within-species genetic structure of the forest elephant across its range to better understand how genetically distinctive regional populations of the species are and how that might affect its conservation. A herd of savanna elephants at a water hole in Chobe National Park, Botswana. Note the more pointed ears and curved tusks. Image by Sue Palminteri/Mongabay The species debate African forest elephants have roamed the forests of West Africa and Central Africa for millions of years. They stand up to a meter (3 feet) shorter than savanna elephants and weigh about 2,700 kilograms (6,000 pounds), roughly half that of savanna elephants, which inhabit southern and East Africa. Forest elephants also have more rounded ears and longer, straighter tusks. More importantly for conservation, female forest elephants first give birth as late as 23 years, with longer birth intervals than their savanna cousins. Their

Can Ecuador do palm oil right? Jurisdictional RSPO commitment stirs hope "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ecuador is the sixth largest palm oil producing country in the world and the second largest in Latin America. While most of its oil palm plantations have been developed on degraded land, an estimated 6 percent of cultivated area has come at the expense of natural forest. Conservationists worry this will increase as the countrys palm oil sector continues to grow. In attempts to reign in harmful palm oil industry practices, Ecuadors Ministry of Agriculture reactivated its Jurisdictional RSPO Certification plan in March 2018. The RSPO stands for Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil and is the worlds leading palm oil certification body. Ecuadors jurisdictional plan aims to certify entire provinces rather than focus certification efforts on individual companies and plantations, which has tended to be the norm in other parts of the world. Jurisdictional RSPO is also seen as a way to help the countrys palm oil sector gain better access to world markets, which are increasingly requiring sustainability certification for their products. The plan has been lauded by organizations such as the United Nations REDD program. But some worry it may not be applicable in some parts of Ecuador, such as its Amazonian region, and that a large-scale jurisdictional approach may be vulnerable to political turnover. Ecuadors oil palm industry has taken another step forward in committing to a jurisdictional RSPO system, seeking to transform the entire sector by making it cleaner and more sustainable. But many wonder if a commitment to RSPO is enough, considering the industrys questionable

Death foretold? A courageous Amazon peasant couple resists illegal loggers "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

According to the latest report from the Catholic Churchs Land Commission, 21 of 70 deaths it recorded in rural areas of Brazil in 2017 took place in Par. Image by Osvalinda Marcelino Pereira. AREIA, Par state, Brazil  Im only leaving here when Im dead. And I hope it wont be after a gunman has killed me, said peasant farmer Osvalinda Maria Marcelino Pereira, speaking to Federal Prosecutor Paulo de Tarso Oliveira in June when he visited her Amazon settlement. After describing the torrent of threats and acts of violence that she, like many other peasants in Brazils Amazon basin, has suffered in recent years, it is easy to understand why she fears assassination. The June visit marked the first time a representative from the Federal Public Ministry (MPF), Brazils body of independent litigators, had ever visited the agrarian reform settlement of Areia, located near the BR-163 highway, between the rural districts of Triaro and Itaituba in western Par state. The prosecutor had come in response to a chilling warning: On 20 May, Osvalinda and her husband, Daniel Pereira, stepped into their backyard garden to pick fruit, only to find two freshly made graves, each with a cross, dug a hundred yards from their home. This was no idle threat. The NGO Global Witness has just reported that Brazil saw 57 murders last year

Indonesias one-map database blasted for excluding indigenous lands "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

JAKARTA International Day of the Worlds Indigenous Peoples was marked on Aug. 9 in Jakarta by musical performances and traditional cuisine. But the festive mood was tempered by news that a much-anticipated government database meant to unify all the disparate land-use maps in Indonesia would not include customary land maps, at least initially. The Ancestral Domain Registration Agency (BRWA), an organization set up by a number of NGOs to pool the results of customary land mapping, has marked out 96,500 square kilometers (37,300 square miles) of indigenous territory. It was a painstaking process undertaken through a participatory method of mapping, in which entire communities were consulted for their approval to get their areas mapped out. Of that total, some 12,000 square kilometers (4,600 square miles) of land, comprising 51 indigenous territories, have been formally recognized by local governments through bylaws. The process is a tedious and time-consuming one that involves petitioning local councils to pass a bylaw in each of the hundreds of jurisdictions in which indigenous lands occur. But BRWA head Kasmita Widodo said he had been informed by the office of the presidents chief of staff that maps of indigenous territories would not be a part of the governments so-called one-map database when it launches later this month. How come maps that have been produced by indigenous peoples through such a long process and that have been acknowledged by local bylaws are not included in the one-map database? he said at a press conference in Jakarta.

Amongst the many dull grey houses built recently scattered across the Ireland, the Ecovillage is a breath of fresh air in their designs. Each house is different. It has a hostel you can stay in too to soak up the vibe, The hostel however is designed badly in my opinion. The tiny cramped kitchen is absurd and the place feels very dated already.

Safeguarding children was less important than the reputation of the Church and the wellbeing of the abusive monks.

Inmates without histories of arson, sexual crimes, kidnapping, gang-affiliation, escape attempts or facing a life sentence are allowed to volunteer for the firefighting program and are trained for two weeks in fire safety and field conditions before taking a physical exam. Once the exam is passed, prisoners are sent to live in one of 43 low-security field camps throughout the state. Juvenile delinquents are also eligible for the program, at least 58 youth offenders are currently fighting active wildfires. "In an active fire, Cal Fire makes the determination for all crews based on the conditions, and the safety and security of all firefighters. In other words, inmate firefighters are not treated differently in the work they perform at the camps," Vicky Waters, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation told Newsweek on Tuesday. "I just want to emphasize that we absolutely recognize the incredible job these firefighters are doing, particularly when lives and properties are at stake."

Roger Stone's Assistant Held in Contempt of Court "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From the sound of things, Andrew Miller worked as some kind of executive assistant for Roger Stone, helping him book media appearances and handling email that came in unsolicited to his website.  The special counsels investigators want him to appear before a grand jury and he has refused to comply, leading to a contempt of court ruling being issued today by a district court judge.

There are some interesting facets to this development. To begin with, when he was first approached by Muellers investigators, Miller complied and sat with them for a brief meeting without raising any legal objections or concerns.  He also agreed to come back for a longer and more formal interview. But then outsiders intervened.

An organization called the National Legal and Policy Center, chaired by Peter Flaherty, stepped up with an offer to pay Millers legal fees. Lawyers got involved, including Alicia Dearn and Paul Kamenar. Dearn appears to be former counsel to Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson and a losing candidate for the 2016 vice-presidential slot on the Libertarian Partys slate. Kamenar works for the Federalist Society.

They contend that their client does not have to submit to Muellers grand jury request because his inquiry is unconstitutional. They actually welcomed having Mr. Miller cited for contempt and plan to appeal it all the way to the Supreme Court (if necessary).

Millers lawyer Paul Kamenar said after the hearing that Miller was held in contempt, which we asked him to be in order for us to appeal the judges decision to the court of appeals.

Howell stayed her order while Millers legal team appeals the judges decision.

Miller lost a court battle earlier this month to quash a subpoena, after Howell issued a 93-page opinion saying Miller must testify before the grand jury.

Kamenar said he believes Millers challenge could ultimately rise to the Supreme Court.

Wanker of the Day: Michael Gerson "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Im trying to find the right analogy to explain former Bush speechwriter Michael Gersons advice to Republicans who have a moral conscience but Im not at 100 percent today. Ive got one of those headaches where you cant fully open your eyes. It could be that reading Gersons piece contributed to my condition.

The best I can come up with is to ask you to imagine yourself witnessing a bank heist. The robbers have succeeded in getting the vault open and you discover that you have a momentary window of privacy where you can use your cell phone to alert the police. What do you do?

According to Gerson, you should absolutely make that call, but when the crooks hear the police sirens and make their getaway attempt, you should seize the moment and go into that vault and secret away as many bars of gold as you can.

In November, many Republican leaners and independents will face a difficult decision. The national Democratic Party under Nancy Pelosi and Charles E. Schumer doesnt share their views or values. But President Trump is a rolling disaster of mendacity, corruption and prejudice. What should they do?

They should vote Democratic in their House race, no matter who the Democrats put forward. And they should vote Republican in Senate races with mainstream candidates (unlike, say, Corey Stewart in Virginia).

Why vote strategically in this case? Because American politics is in the midst of an emergency.

If Democrats gain control of the House but not the Senate, they will be a check on the president without becoming a threat to his best policies (from a Republican perspective) or able to enact their worst policies. The tax cut will stand. The Senate will still approve conservative judges. But the House will conduct real oversight hearings and expose both Russian influence and administration corruption. Under Republican control, important committees such as Chairman Devin Nuness House Intelligence Committee have become scraping, sniveling, panting and pathetic tools of the executive branch. Only Democratic control can drain this particular swamp.

When it comes to ill-gotten gains, whether were talking about the Supreme Court seat that properly ought to be held by Merrick Garland or the tax giveaways that Hillary Clinton would not have sought, Gerson is fully in favor of keeping those and gathering some more.

He expects the House Democrats to expose...

Aktau (Kazakhstan) - The establishment of US military bases at the Caspian Sea is "out of question," Kazakh Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov told Sputnik. "Some representatives of Russian media and expert communities do not have a firm grasp of facts on the real situation regarding the transit of US non-military cargo via Kazakhstan ... It is about commercial railway transportation of non-lethal cargo via Kazakhstan to continue the operations to support the Afghan government, which is necessary for the whole international community ... Naturally, any military bases on the Caspian Sea are out of question," Abdrakhmanov said.

On July 14th 2018 a conference held at London's Royal Society of Medicine, titled New Horizons in Water Science focussed on homeopathy. The conference hosted many esteemed speakers including Nobel Laureate, Professor Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate, Professor Luc Montagnier, Professor Gerald Pollack, Professor Vladimir Voeikov, Professor Alexander Konovalov and Dr. Robert Verkerk The Western medical model is heavily reliant on pharmaceutical drugs and surgery, and for acute medical conditions the model has proven to be highly effective. The case is significantly different for chronic conditions, when pharmaceutical drugs and surgery are ineffective and for which mainstream hospitals and clinics can offer little support for a patient beyond pain reduction. No one therapy or medical technique answers all that our health needs and today many complimentary and alternative therapeutic modalities have been developed that offer support for chronic conditions, including acupuncture, audible sound therapy, Reiki, hypnotherapy, homeopathy and many others. While complimentary and alternative therapies offer support for many aspects of health, including chronic conditions, homeopathy, in particular, has come in for major criticism. In the UK homeopathy remains available as an alternative treatment under the National Health System, yet the detractors are often vicious in their attacks on homeopathic medicine and even though patients of homeopathic treatment, worldwide, continue to report excellent results.

Former professor charged with assaulting 7 Trump supporters with a bike lock only gets probation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A former Diablo Valley College professor who used a bike lock to assault seven Trump supporters at a free speech rally last August will only receive three years of probation as part of a plea deal. Eric Clanton, a former philosophy professor at Diablo Valley College, will receive only a three-year probation for his assault on Trump supporters at a Berkeley Free Speech rally in August 2017. Clanton was captured on video smashing a Trump supporter's head with a bike lock. His victim ultimately fell to the ground, covered in his own blood. Court documents revealed that Clanton struck at least seven people in the head at the Berkeley free speech rally on April 15, 2017. One of his victims had a head laceration that required five staples to fix. Clanton was initially charged with four counts of felony assault. During a search of Clanton's home, investigators found documents that linked him to local Antifa groups. Investigators also found bike locks and clothing that were similar to the items used by the assailant in the assault video that was published online. Additionally, cell phone tower data placed Clanton close to the location of the assaults on the date they took place.

Alleged ELF and ALF Fugitive, Joseph Dibee, Arrested After 12 Years "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

from Earth First! Newswire

Joseph Mahmoud Dibee, an alleged member of the Earth Liberation Front group The Family, has been arrested in Cuba and is now being held in Oregon. Cuban authorities, with assistance from the FBI and other US government agencies, detained Dibee in Cuba shortly before he was set to board a plane to Russia. He has been held in the Multnomah County Detention Center in Portland since Thursday afternoon.

He appeared in federal court in Oregon yesterday afternoon. He pleaded not guilty to three counts of arson and conspiracy charges. He told the judge he understood his rights and said nothing else.

He will now face federal criminal charges in Oregon, California, and Washington.

He is being charged in Oregon with one count of conspiracy to commit arson, one count of conspiracy to commit arson and destruction of an energy facility, and one count of arson. He also faces one count each of conspiracy to commit arson, possession of an unregistered firearm, and possession of a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence in Washington and one count each of conspiracy to commit arson, arson of a government building, and possession of a destructive device in furtherance of a crime of violence in California.

One of the actions Dibee is accused of taking part in is the destruction of the Cavel West horsemeat-packing plant in Redmond, Oregon, in 1997. The joint ELF/ALF action was successful in permanently closing down the facility.

In 2005, FBI agents arrived at Joseph Dibees home in Seattle, but did not have enough evidence to arrest him. He disappeared a few days later. In 2006, a federal grand jury in Oregon indicted Dibee and 12 others as part of Operation Backfire, an FBI investigation into animal and earth liberation groups which has led to numerous arrests. The Family is believed to be responsible for actions ranging from vandalism to arson between 1995 and 2001, causing more than $45 million in damages to earth-destroying and animal-abusing companies. None of the actions Dibee is accused of taking part in harmed any human or nonhuman life.

Queercon is a conference within a conference. Taking place within DEF CON, Queercon is a social network of LGBT hackers that gathers each year to host events, talks, and a kickin pool party. Since 2012 they have also been building electronic badges as part of the fun and I can vouch that theyre contenders for most creative badge design every single year.

A total of 450 electronic badges were made this year, and the aesthetic is as close to a polished consumer product as I have ever seen in a badge, yet they also retain the charm and feel of unique electronics built for hardware geeks. With wireless communication that delivers a complex and clever game to the badges, the designers are encouraging interaction between people (not just between badges).

South Sudan: No Amnesty for War Crimes "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 

(HRW) South Sudanese leaders should not undermine their efforts to bring an end to the countrys devastating conflict with an amnesty for war crimes and crimes against humanity, Human Rights Watch said.

The parties to the conflict signed a peace agreement on August 5, 2018, in Khartoum, agreeing to new power sharing arrangements and a timetable for further talks. On August 8, President Salva Kiir offered a general amnesty to heads of armed groups involved in the nations five-year civil war as part of the agreement to end the fighting.

Amnesty for atrocities not only conflicts with South Sudans international obligations, but experience shows it is no way to build a lasting peace, said Elise Keppler, associate international justice director at Human Rights Watch. While South Sudans leaders may aim to provide assurances to opponents, they should make clear that the amnesty does not cover grave crimes by all parties since the conflict began.

International law requires prosecuting those responsible for serious crimes, such as crimes against humanity and war crimes, to ensure victims rights to truth, justice, and an effective remedy, along with combating impunity. South Sudan has also ratified treaties such as the Convention against Torture, which provide for prosecution of people allegedly responsible for serious crimes. Because the United Nations takes the position that amnesties cannot be granted for serious crimes under international law, it will not endorse peace agreements that provide for such amnesties. The African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights has also rejected amnesty for serious crimes.

South Sudans leaders have a history of providing de facto blanket amnesty to opponents as part of peace deals, even prior to the countrys independence in 2011. The resulting lack of justice has contributed to the countrys deepening social and ethnic divisions, and fueled violence and abuses. Human Rights Watch has previously urged mediators and South Sudanese leaders to ensure that peace deals did not include any amnesty for serious crimes.

Qatar and the Persian Gulf: What lies beneath one particular event "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The online news publication The Intercept referred to their sources in diplomatic circles in its reports that Arabic countries lobbied to have Rex Tillerson removed from his post as the US Secretary of State because they were not happy with his work. According to information leaked to the press, the US Secretary of State irritated Riyadh and Abu Dhabi by interfering with their plans to attack and occupy Qatar in the summer of last year, when a crisis was contrived around this small state. Incidentally, experts note that the American society has not, for some reason, reacted with indignation towards open attempts to interfere in its internal politics, despite the fact that these particular Arabic nations forced Rex Tillerson from his post, while, at the same time, the topic of Russia's alleged involvement in the 2016 elections is still front page news. It is worth noting at this stage that during the political crisis that started a year ago and pitted Doha against its Arabic neighbors in the Persian Gulf, Tillerson went to great lengths to de-escalate the situation in the region, and prevent the attack against Qatar and its occupation. According to reports by the US media, he made numerous phone calls to convince Saudi Arabia and the UAE to abstain from deploying their military against Qatar. In addition, Rex Tillerson, as the US Secretary of State, actively encouraged the US Secretary of Defense James Mattis to engage in negotiations with his Saudi Arabian counterpart in order to convince the Saudis to reconsider their military operation against Doha, and to demonstrate Washington's displeasure at their actions.

Giving Trump Carte Blanche for War "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A little-noticed Senate bill would give Donald Trump blanket permission to launch wars in violation of the Constitution

By John Kiriakou and cross-posted from Consortium News

Have you ever heard of Senate Joint Resolution 59 (S.J.Res. 59)? Neither had I. A friend of mine saw a blurb about it on an obscure national security blog and brought it to my attention. At first glance it didnt seem to be any big deal. Its inelegantly named the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) of 2018.

It was introduced on April 16, 2018 by Senators Bob Corker (R-TN), the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (SFRC), and Tim Kaine (D-VA). Officially, the bill would Authorize the use of military force against the Taliban, al-Qaeda, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and designated associated forces, and provide an updated, transparent, and sustainable statutory basis for counterterrorism operations.

Its hard to oppose a bill that would keep Americans safe, as Corker said in the SFRC hearing. But this bill is so bad, such an affront to our freedom, such an attack on our civil liberties, that we should be compelled to oppose it.

S.J.Res. 59 is bad for a number of reasons. First and most importantly, it would provide blanket permission for the president to launch a military attack of literally any size and intensity whenever he wants without specific congressional approval. That seems obviously unconstitutional to me, although Im not a constitutional scholar. Still, the constitution says in Article I, Section 8 that only Congress shall have the authority to declare war, among other things military. It does not allow the president the ability to launch a war.

Second, according to Marjorie Cohn, professor emerita at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law and former president of the National Lawyers Guild, it also would write the president a blank check to lock up Americans who dissent against U.S. military policy. Thats right. If you oppose U.S. military policy, the president would have the right to lock you up indefinitely without charge.

Certainly, our government already does that. But were told that this happens to the worst of the worstthose terrorists who happen to be American, but who also have planned large-scale terrorist attacks against the country or its citizens or who have taken up arms against the United States. Think dirty bomber Jose Padilla or the a-yet-unnamed Saudi-American currently being held somewhere and being represented by the American Civil Liberti...

Michael Avenatti says he wants to run for president, and Dave Weigel is taking his bid very seriously. Here's Weigel (writing with Felicia Sonmez) in The Washington Post:

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, told Iowa Democrats on Friday that Democrats are seeking a fighter who will take on President Trump and that they should look no further than him.

What I fear for this Democratic Party that I love is that we have a tendency to bring nail clippers to gunfights, Avenatti said at the Iowa Democratic Wing Ding, an annual party fundraiser. When they go low, I say: We hit harder.

... Iowa Democrats, who are optimistic about winning back the governors mansion and two seats in Congress, have been slow to focus on the 2020 race.... As the names of the Wing Dings speakers were read, the applause was mild until the audience heard Michael Avenatti.
Here's Weigel on Twitter:

13 Tribes Oppose Trump Administrations Reorganization Plan of Interior Department "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Shoshone-Bannock Tribes Office of Public Affairs, 2018.

Published August 11, 2018

POCATELLO, Idaho  Thirty-two representatives from thirteen tribal governments met on Wednesday, August 8th in Pocatello, Idaho to discuss President Trumps Executive Order 13781 to reorganize the federal government and specifically the proposed reorganization of the Department of the Interior (DOI).  The meeting was hosted by the Great Plains Tribal Chairmans Association, the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council and the Ute Tribe of Utah in conjunction with the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes annual Indian Festival in Fort Hall, Idaho.

Tribal leaders who attended included: Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, Navajo Nation, Ute Tribe, Yankton Sioux, San Juan Southern Paiute, Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, Shivwits Band of Paiutes, Paiute Indian Tribe, Shoshone-Paiute, Confederated Tribes of  Goshute, Northern Arapahoe Tribe, Eastern Shoshone Tribe and the Northwestern Band of Shoshone.

If you cant honor our treaties, then we want our lands back, stated Shaun Chapoose of Ute Indian Tribal Business Committee.  Jeremy Patterson, legal counsel for the Ute Indian Tribe further stated, {the federal government} must address treaty rights in order for this nation to progress. Until that happens there must be consequences to the federal government for not recognizing our treaties.

At the meeting, every tribal government expressed concerns at the efforts of the Trump Administration to dramatically change the federal government structure, especially at those specific agencies that serve as the primary agencies tasked with ensuring that the federal government fulfills its solemn treaty and trust responsibilities to tribes. The tribes are deeply concerned that this restructuring of DOI and other federal agencies is being done without meaningful consultations with tribes. DOI has proposed to realign regional boundaries for federal agencies within DOI, including the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).

All tribal leaders present at the meeting pledged a united opposition to the proposed reorganization, which would have severe adverse impacts to Tribes and individual Indians. Tribal leadership emphasized that the most significant concern is the real impacts to our people, our tribes and our communities.  It is...

Does Trump Show America Who it Really Is? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Hole in Americas Soul, and What it (Really) Means

Heres a tiny question. Does Trump show America who it really isand maybe always has been? Is he its truthor just a fluke?

I think this is the central question of now. For pragmatic reasons. If we think Trump is an anomaly, then the answer is simple. Vote the bad guys out, and things go back to normal. But if Trump, and Trumpism, isnt an anomaly, but a reflection, and it reveals something deeper and truer about who America really isthen the challenge is much harder, isnt it? Maybe we dont like what we see. But what we see is usat last, perhaps. So its about a truer kind of change than a Presidency. Self-transformation, maybe. Maybe thats why so many people want to take the easy way out, and pretend the question doesnt need to be asked at all. Ah, if only life were that simple.

Lets start with the man himself, compared to Americaas seen from the worlds eyes. First, theres the crass, tacky materialismthe gilded chairs, the overweening vanity, the bad suits, the rallies, the hair. Yet while thats not Americans might see America, its exactly how the world sees Americaas a crassly materialistic place, without even the taste to do it well. So what?, you cry. Thats meaningless! And its mean, too!! Perhaps, perhaps. Or does it hint at something? Lets keep going.

The best!wait, isnt that exactly the grandiose myth America tells about itself, the one called exceptionalism? I alone can save you!hold on, isnt that exactly what Americas said to the world for decades now? What about the constant threat of intimidation and violence? No one else has needed to be the worlds policeman. Then theres the need to be all-powerful, omnipotent, above the law. The world thinks of America just that way, too. And how about the need to divide the world into bad guys and good guys, enemies and true believersblack and white thinking, with no middle ground? Isnt that also what Americas done forever? I could go on, but thats plenty. You see the many uncanny similarities.

Now. What kind of personality needs to do all this? A narcissist. An infantile narcissist, to be precise. That doesnt mean what you probably think it doessomeone who needs attention. Theres a deeper logic at work. The narcissist is a person whos empty inside. There is nothing there. They have developed no part of themselves which can supply self-love, self-regard, or even self-coherence. There is only a void where a mature self should be.

Neoliberalism on steroids: Punishing the victims and rewarding the perpetrators of the 2008 financial crisis "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The 2008 financial crash should have marked the end of a neoliberal era marked by greed and inequality. But it ushered in even more iniquitous economic policies which have benefited the super-rich at the expense of the majority. It was the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression of the 1930s. However, unlike then, the crash of 2008 did not lead to the adoption of progressive New Deal-style policies, but the exact opposite. The massive bankers' bailouts that were introduced following the collapse of Lehman Bros were paid for by ordinary taxpayers, who then saw their living standards plummet as governments imposed harsh austerity measures, which led to important public services being cut. Let's look at what happened in Britain. In the 2010 General Election, the Conservatives, out of office since 1997, promoted themselves as the party most serious about "cutting the deficit." The election was all about 'the deficit'. The 'd' word was everywhere. The Tories scraped home, but could only form a government with the support of the Lib Dems, who, under the leadership of banker's son Nick Clegg, were now enthusiastic neocons.

In memory of their son Michael Brown Lesley (Lezley) McSpadden and step-dad Louis Head incited a riot in Ferguson after a grand jury refused to indict Officer Darren Wilson in November 2014.

The reports of Michael Brown being an innocent bystander with his hands up gunned down by a racist cop were all media lies.

Louis Head screamed: Burn this b*tch down.
And dozens of Ferguson businesses were burnt to the ground.

Russia 'can't beat US in trade war' but could hurt Washington in many other ways "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

After Prime Minister Medvedev accused the US of declaring a trade war with its latest sanctions against Russia, experts weigh up how much damage each country might inflict on the other and what Moscow can do to dodge the blows. Labeled "draconian" by both sides, the White House sanctions over Russia's alleged involvement in the poisoning of the Skripals in the UK in March will be applied in two steps. On August 22, an initial restriction on exports of security-sensitive goods will come into force and, unless Russia assures the US that it has stopped using chemical weapons (which it denies in the first instance), more severe restrictions will be introduced 90 days later. These include a potential moratorium on national carrier flights to the United States and an almost complete import ban. Dmitry Medvedev on Friday promised a "political and economic reaction," but what can Russia do?

Nellie Ohr the Woman in the Middle of the FBI/DOJs Russia Scandal Is a Communist Sympathizer and Corrupt Never-Trumper "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

America is going to soon know the name Nellie Ohr.  Americans will also learn she was a communist sympathizer more connected to Russia than President Trump ever will be who did all she could to overturn the candidacy and Presidency of President Trump.

American Spectator recently posted an article on Nellie Ohr, who they call the dossier spying scandals woman in the middle.

To one side of Ohr, there is the Fusion GPS team, including fellow contractor Christopher Steele. To the other, there is husband Bruce Ohr, who, until his dossier-related demotion, was No. 4 man at the Department of Justice, and a key contact there for Steele.

As central as Nellie Ohrs placement is, her role in the creation of the dossier remains undefined. For example, the House Intelligence Committee memo on related matters vaguely tells us that Nellie Ohr was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump; the memo adds that Bruce Ohr later provided the FBI with all of his wifes opposition research. Senator Lindsey Graham more sensationally told Fox News that Nellie Ohr did the research for Mr. Steele, but details remain scarce.

Whats more revealing about Nellie Ohr is what she did before the FBI and DOJ Russia scandal and the men in her life protecting her involvement in the Russia scandal

Notably, the dossier men in her life have tried to shield Ohr from public scrutiny, even at professional risk. Her husband, as the Daily Caller News Foundation reports, failed to disclose his wifes employment with Fusion GPS and seek the appropriate conflict-of-interest waiver, which may have been an important factor in his demotion from associate deputy attorney general late last year.

Under Senate and House questioning, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson consistently failed to disclose Nellie Ohrs existence as one of his firms paid Russian experts, let alone that he hired her for the red-hot DNC/Clinton campaign Trump-Russia project.

Even Christopher Steele may have tried to keep Nellie Ohr under cover. Steele, put forth as the dossier author ever since its January 2017 publication in BuzzFeed, does not appear to have let on to his many media and political contacts that he had dossier-assistance from at least two fellow Fusion GPS Russian experts, Nellie Ohr and Edward Baumg...

Microsoft threatens to shut down social media site Gab after anti-Semitic posts by random user "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Editor's note: Since the publication of this article, more information has surfaced about the threatening nature of the posts, which seem to be a clear violation of Gab's terms of service. PJ Media condemns violent threats in the strongest possible terms. See update below. Microsoft Azure, the web hosting provider for Gab, has given the company 48 hours to delete some anti-Semitic posts or face a Big Tech shut-down. Gab is a Twitter alternative that claims to protect the right to free speech. It's not a very good alternative, as the numbers just aren't there to keep it interesting. Most of the time it's just righties and ultra-righties fighting amongst themselves. But Gab's claim to fame is that they won't kick people off for having unpopular views or engaging in insult trading that morons refer to as "hate speech." For some, that's a worthwhile promise. It should be noted that in America the term "hate speech" is not a legal one, at least according to the Supreme Court. So-called "hate speech," be it racist, bigoted, anti-Semitic or just plain mean, is protected as reaffirmed in Matal v. Tam in 2017. "Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express 'the thought that we hate,'" wrote Justice Alito.

Following the golden rule: Iran and Venezuela prime examples of intrinsic value of money vs. gold "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Once again, gold has proved itself to be the most reliable safe haven as more and more citizens in countries hit by US sanctions are hoarding the metal in an effort to protect their savings from collapsing national currencies. Rising demand for gold in Iran and Venezuela has sent prices for the precious metal to unprecedented levels while local currencies depreciate daily. As of the end of July, gold prices in the struggling Latin American state saw a 3.1-million-percent increase against the beginning of the year, with an ounce of the yellow metal surging to 211 million bolivars ($1019,45). Venezuela is currently fighting the worst economic crisis ever, with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) expecting inflation to reach a colossal one-million percent by the end of 2018. The skyrocketing inflation that is unavoidably dragging down the Venezuelan bolivar is forcing people to buy up gold to keep their savings from disappearing.

1. Most Public Engagement is Worse Than Worthless

Google Boots Open Source Anti-Censorship Tool From Chrome Store "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A browser extension that acted as an anti-censorship tool for 185,000 people has been kicked out of the Chrome store by Google. The open source Ahoy! tool facilitated access to more than 1,700 blocked sites but is now under threat. Despite several requests, Google has provided no reason for its decision.

Last December, TF reported on SitesBloqueados (Blocked Sites) a web portal run by Revoluo dos Bytes (Bytes' Revolution), a group of anti-censorship activists in Portugal.

Internet censorship is common in the country, with more than 1,700 sites banned from regular Internet access for reasons ranging from copyright to gambling. The process does not require intervention from the courts so Revoluo dos Bytes decided to keep an eye on things with its Ahoy! Chrome and Firefox extension.

"Ahoy! basically bypasses any traffic to a blocked site through our own proxies, allowing the users to navigate in a free, uncensored internet," team member Henrique Mouta previously told TF.

Not only is Ahoy! able to unblock sites, it can also detect newly blocked domains and feed information back, so that its unblocking abilities are always up to date.

Things had been going well. After servicing 100,000 users last December, Ahoy! grew to almost 185,000 users this year. However, progress and indeed the project itself is now under threat after arbitrary action by Google.

"Google decided to remove us from Chrome's Web Store without any justification", Henrique informs TF.

"We always make sure our code is high quality, secure and 100% free (as in beer and as in freedom). All the source code is open source. And we're pretty sure we never broke any of the Google's marketplace rules."

Why is female breast so attractive? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

breast 3

By Taazakhabar News Bureau

The female breast is clearly the most eye-catching and noticeable part of her anatomy regardless of ethnicity, race or religionshe might belong to. The breasts are visible and prominent even when the woman is fully clothed.

The shape and size of the breast play an important role in how the society views women.

This might be the reason why most women in their 40s or 50s opt for cosmetic or plastic surgery to reconstruct, enhance, trim or drastically reduce the size of their breasts.

According to a conservative US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimate, almost 5 to 10 million women worldwide have opted for either silicone gel or saline breast implant.

Another report by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) predicts that United States, Brazil, Japan, Italy, and Mexico are among the top five countries where most of these surgeries are performed.

Highest numbers of Cosmetic Surgeries world-wide:

Right from the beginning, USA positioned itself on the top accounting for almost 20% of the worldwide surgical breast and body treatments like liposuction, abdominoplasty and butt augmentation. Within the USA, the most common surgery was breast augmentation or enlarging of breasts by inserting implants, followed by liposuction a procedure that removes fat from unwanted areas and nose reshaping. Most of these surgeries are performed in California, Nevada, Florida and New York City. Within the USA, Surgeons in Miami in Florida performed the highest rate of cosmetic surgeries, followed by New York City.

Brazil was right behind with more than 2.5 million proceduresalmost 12 per cent of the global total.

DNC serves WikiLeaks with lawsuit via Twitter "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Intellihub editors note: It appears the deep state is doing everything in their power to go full force after those who put out the truth. Alex Jones, WikiLeaks, Intellihubs Shepard Ambellas are all in the globalists sights.

From CBS News:

The Democratic National Committee on Friday officially served its lawsuit to WikiLeaks via Twitter, employing a rare method to serve its suit to the elusive group that has thus far been unresponsive.

As CBS News first reported last month, the DNC filed a motion with a federal court in Manhattan requesting permission to serve its complaint to WikiLeaks on Twitter, a platform the DNC argued the website uses regularly. The DNC filed a lawsuit in April against the Trump campaign, Russian government and WikiLeaks, alleging a massive conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trumps favor.

All of the DNCs attempts to serve the lawsuit via email failed, the DNC said in last months motion to the judge, which was ultimately approved.

The lawsuit was served through a tweet from a Twitter account established Friday by Cohen Milstein, the law firm representing the DNC in the suit, with the intent of serving the lawsuit.

Tour de France champion Jan Ullrich admitted to a psychiatric hospital "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The accused was likely under the influence of alcohol and drugs

Germanys Tour de France champion Jan Ullrich was admitted to a psychiatric hospital on Friday after his brief detention for allegedly assaulting a prostitute.

The 44-year-old former cycling star was earlier Friday released on bail pending an investigation for possible attempted manslaughter.

But once free, Ullrich suffered a panic attack, reported the DPA news agency.

Image result for Jan Ullrich, photos

Jan Ullrich was admitted to a psychiatric hospital on Friday night where his state of health is being assessed by specialists, a Frankfurt police spokesperson told AFP on Saturday.

Due to his mental and physical state there was no other choice but to transport him to a psychiatric unit by ambulance, the spokesperson said.

Fridays incidents arose after the 1997 Tour de France champion had called on the services of a prostitute at the five-star Villa Kennedy Hotel in Frankfurt, Bild daily reported.

But he then attacked the 31-year-old escort lady in one of the hotel rooms after a dispute, prosecutors and police said in a joint statement.

He put up a struggle as officers arrived to detain him, they said, noting that the accused was likely under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

The accused is under investigation for attempted manslaughter and grievous bodily harm. Investigations are not over, they said, adding that the woman has given extensive details on the attacks while Ullrich has exerted his right to remain silent.

Ullrichs run-in with the law came just a week after his 24-hour detention in Spain, where he had sought to force his way into the Mallorca home of his neighbour, German actor Til Schweiger, and threatened him.

Drink and drug therapy

Ullrichs latest woes came just hours after he arrived back in Germany to seek therapy for his drink and drug habit following last weeks scandal in Mallorca.

The former cyclists dramatic fall from grace came two decades after he became the only German to have won the Tour de France, in 1997.

Born in former communist East Germany, Ullrich racked up his triumphs after reunification, turning him into a national hero.

He later also won Olympic gold in Sydney in 2000, but failed to replicate his victory at the gruelling French race, finishing for several years behind US cyclist Lance Armstrong.

The true victim of social media censorship is personal responsibility "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Only the individual is responsible for their consumption of information. Between Trump's tirades against alleged "fake news" outlets and the recent banning of Alex Jones from Facebook, Apple, and YouTube, our society appears to be obsessed with trying to silence the opposition by controlling the flow of information. And while the recent Jones prohibition has sparked a national debate over who the First Amendment applies to, there is more to this story than just the issue of state-protected free speech. To be sure, the Bill of Rights is vital to individual liberty and was written explicitly to restrain the government from infringing upon the rights of the people. And while Facebook may sometimes be more accommodating to the government than many of us would like, the fact remains that it is a private company and it has the right to ban whomever it chooses. The same goes for YouTube and Apple.

House Committee to Interview Bruce Ohr and Wife, Nellie Ohr, About Steele Dossier "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The House Judiciary Committee is looking to interviewand will subpoena if necessaryJustice Department (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr and his wife, Nellie Ohr, along with several current and former FBI and DOJ officials.

We plan to interview the people noted in the coming weeks and we will issue subpoenas to compel their attendance if necessary, a committee aide wrote in an email to The Epoch Times.

The DOJ confirmed that the committee reached out to them in regard to the interviews.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte could issue orders as early as the coming week, according to the Hill. Goodlattes committee is part of a joint investigation with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee into decisions made by the FBI and the DOJ during the 2016 election.

Bruce Ohr on March 18, 2014. (Italy in US via Flickr [CC BY-ND 2.0])

The committees interview requests come on the heels of revelations that Bruce Ohr maintained contact with former British spy Christopher Steele for more than a year after the FBI terminated ties with Steele for leaking to the media. Ohr then became Steeles back-door conduit for feeding information to the FBI.

Ohr also attempted to reinstate Steele with the bureau and link him into special counsel Robert Muellers Russia probe. The pair remained in contact until mid-November 2017.

The revelations are problematic because Ohr has no official role in the Russia investigation and Steele had been prohibited from collecting intelligence on behalf of the FBI. The problem is compounded by the fact that Ohrs wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for the same opposition research firm as Steele, Fusion GPS.

Steele authored the opposition research dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump that was used to secure a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. Many of the dossiers claims have been debunked while the rest remain unverified.

It was the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee that ultimately paid for Steeles work. FBI and DOJ officials who used the dossier to apply for a secret court surveillance warrant on Page failed to mention that fact to the judge.

Did Canadians get to vote on whether or not to bring potential terrorists or supporters of terrorists to Canada? No. Will Canadians get a say in where these potentially dangerous men will be settled? Highly unlikely. Ninety-eight members of the White Helmets, and a few hundred of their families, were evacuated by Israel and allies to Jordan late in evening of July 21. They will seemingly be shipped off to a few Western nations for resettlement: Canada, the UK, and Germany. So far, Canada has pledged to take 50 White Helmets and around 200 family members. Wrongly dubbed the "Syrian Civil Defense" (the actual Syrian Civil Defense has existed since 1953), the White Helmets narrative is flawed in every conceivable manner.

Trump is not in control of administration and latest sanctions against Russia show it "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

US President Donald Trump is not in control of his own administration, as evidenced by the latest round of sanctions imposed against Russia for the alleged involvement in the poisoning of the Skripals in the UK in March. The sanctions came the same day that US Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., announced on a trip to Moscow that he had handed over a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin from Trump calling for better relations between the two countries. For that reason, the timing appears to be suspect, suggesting strongly that Trump has his own foreign policy while the Trump administration, comprised mainly of bureaucrats referred to as the Deep State, have their own. Right now, they appear to be in control, not President Trump, over his own administration, and it is having the adverse effect of further alienating Washington and Moscow. The neocons, led by National Security Advisor John Bolton, along with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley, comprise the Trump "war cabinet" ostensibly aimed at directing a harder line toward Syria, North Korea, Iran but also Russia.

The Alex Jones problem "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Dear Readers, this article was written many years ago and never published, or mentioned in any of our books. With the recent events that Alex Jones has been 'banned' by major social media, Apple (AAPL) and others; we felt further analysis was required. As with anything in this world, things are not always as it seems. Here's the gist of this analysis. The alt-media attacks the establishment on all fronts (and they have ample reason to be attacked). However, logically, this doesn't make the alt-media right, or protected from some of the flaws they are exposing shown by the Establishment. Remember, that the Establishment is really just well funded, they are people too. There isn't likely a single individual in the Elite of the Establishment which enjoys to watch human suffering they create with their policies, but as a whole, they act with the subtle and un-agreed agreement of the group-think of the Elite. Plausible Deniability. "We" didn't do that, we hired some company to do it, and they messed it up.

Kelly Watt: In Solidarity with Alex JonesNobody Knows Who Cleaned Up the Blood at Sandy HookCould It Be There Was No Blood to Clean Up? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Kelley Watt: In Solidarity with Alex Jones Nobody Knows Who Cleaned Up the Blood at Sandy HookCould It Be There Was No Blood to Clean Up?

Mr. President,

For the past 26 years I have owned and operated my own domestic and commercial cleaning service in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As a consequence, I know that, in order to clean up bio-hazards, one must be licensed to do so. Because we were told 26 people had been shot to death inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on 14 December 2012, it would have been appropriate for the State Police of Connecticut, or the FBI or someone else in authority to call for a bio-hazard waste clean-up. Companies like Aftermath dispatch highly trained and licensed experts to clean up blood splatter, urine, feces and tissue from crime scenes.

Curious as to which company received the contract to clean up this crime scene inside that school on that freezingly cold day, I decided to find out. The first phone call I placed was to the Connecticut offices of the Environmental Protection Agency. When I asked the proper personnel who received the contract to clean up the blood I was put on hold and given to three people all of whom had no answer, so I was told to call the Major Crime Squad of Western Connecticut. They had no clue but directed me to Lt. Paul Vance of the Connecticut State Police, who had been present at the scene and appeared to be in control.

When I asked Lt. Vance Who got the contract to clean up the blood at Sandy Hook on December 14th? His answer was brief. He replied, What blood? I explained, 26 people died, sir, inside that school the other day, THAT BLOOD! He responded, Are you a conspiracy theorist? I stepped over dead babies, to which I sternly replied, No, you did not, sir! When three state agencies cant get their phony act together to give tax-paying citizens a simple answer to their question, we are in BIG TROUBLE.

DSLWP-B corrupted SSDV frames "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In my previous post I looked at the first SSDV transmission made by DSLWP-B from lunar orbit. There I used the recording made at the Dwingeloo radiotelescope and showed how to decode the SSDV frames and produce a JPEG image.

Only four SSDV frames where transmitted by DSLWP-B, and out of those four, only two could be decoded correctly. I wondered why the decoding of the other two frames failed, since the SNR of the signal as recorded at Dwingeloo was very good, yielding essentially no bit errors (even before FEC decoding).

Now I have looked at the signal more in detail and have found the cause of the corrupted SSDV frames. I have demodulated the signal in Python and have looked at the position where an ASM (attached sync marker) is transmitted. As explained in this post, the ASM marks the beginning of each Turbo codeword. The Turbo codewords are 3576 symbols long and contain a single SSDV frame.

A total of four ASMs are found in the GMSK transmission that contains the SSDV frames, which matches the four SSDV transmitted. However, the distance between some of the ASMs doesnt agree with the expected length of the Turbo codeword. Two of the Turbo codewords where cut short and not transmitted completely. This explains why the decoding of the corresponding SSDV frames fails.

The detailed analysis can be seen in this Jupyter notebook.

This is rather interesting, as it seems that DSLWP-B had some problem when transmitting the SSDV frames. I have no idea about the cause of the problem, however. It would be convenient to monitor carefully future SSDV transmissions to see if any similar problem happens again.

The Republican Party-- Racist From Top To Bottom "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


When Trump buddy Omarosa, a kind of a jester in his court for a short time, decided to "write" a book-- and especially after the title, Unhinged, was revealed, no one expected it to be less than scathing towards Seor Trumpanzee. Yesterday, The Guardian reported that she finally admitted that Trump is a racist, as if there was anyone with two brain cells to rub together who didn't already know that. She wrote that he was always saying "nigger" during the filming of The Apprentice and she asserts that there are tapes to prove it. She also claims that she personally witnessed Trump use racial epithets about Kellyanne Conways husband George, who is half Filipino and who Trump referred to as "a fucking flip. Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo." She wrote that eventually "It had finally sunk in that the person Id thought Id known so well for so long was actually a racist. Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole."

But he's not just a racist. That's just one part of the essence of Trump. He's also unqualified and a narcissist. Just as important is the fact that he's the most corrupt man to ever get his hands on the U.S. government. Nixon, Buchanan, Harding and Trump's favorite, Andrew Jackson, were all angels compared to Trump. Wish Dawsey reported for the Washington Post yesterday that he offered Omarosa $15,000 a month-- campaign hush-money-- to not spill the beans on him when she was fired. His daughter-in-law offered her a typical Trumpanzee nondisclosure agreement like the ones he makes prostitutes sign. She'll be on Meet The Press tomorrow.

Slapping Ben Shapiro down "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Little Ben Shapiro made this request of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Miss Ocasio-Cortez, Im really excited that youve been elevated to that position and I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues. Youve noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you. Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, Im willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign today for you to come on our Sunday special.

Before getting into Ocasio-Cortezs reply, just think about that statement. Its so patronizing he is rich enough (why?) that hell pay her a substantial fee to appear on his show so he can argue with her. He is making the implicit assumption that he has something to contribute to a discussion. He is confident that he can debate her.

Im just thinking that Ocasio-Cortez can and will discuss the issues without having to engage a twerp like Ben Shapiro. I dont know what he would add to the discussion. Its like all the creationists who want to debate me on evolution, and while my first thought is usually ugh, debate, Im also wondering what makes these clueless ignoramuses think theyre even competent to talk about the subject.

Ocasio-Cortez made an excellent response.

Among the key words there are entitled: Shapiro certainly is feeling entitled. He thinks hes negotiating from a position of strength, when the fact is that he has nothing to bring to the table. Except his money.

Others are bad intentions: Ocasio-Cortez can see right through him. Shapiro is not interested in an honest discussion. He thinks hes found a chew toy he can bat around for the entertainment of the dull reactionaries that constitute his audience. The faux sincerity is an obvious ploy.

That tweet is a response to badgering from Shapiro fanboys. She had appropriately ignored Shapiro altogether, and here shes responding to the hectoring crowd by telling them she doesnt owe a response. She doesnt. Shapiro is a nobody who plays no role in government...

Trump takes deployment of sanctions to new level "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

White House aims to achieve powerful impact while avoiding military entanglements

The Iranian currency has fallen 60 per cent this year AFP

Sam Fleming and Demetri Sevastopulo in Washington and Roger Blitz in London

The White House is unsettling markets and US allies as it makes increasing use of powerful sanctions, underscoring President Donald Trumps willingness to act alone on foreign policy even at the expense of heightening global instability.

Russian and Turkish markets were hit hard this week as US sanctions exacerbated concerns about the fragility of emerging markets.

Washingtons dispute with Ankara over the detention of a US pastor contributed to the 28 per cent slump in the Turkish lira this month. The Russian rouble has fallen 6 per cent since the US announced sweeping sanctions on Wednesday over the near-fatal poisoning in the UK of a former Russian spy.

Iran has also come under mounting financial pressure after the US reimposed sanctions following its withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Tehran, despite objections of close allies that had also signed the pact. The Iranian currency has fallen 60 per cent this year, forcing the countrys central bank to relax foreign exchange restrictions.

The US has been increasingly using sanctions since the 1990s, particularly after George W Bush ramped up activity after the September 11 2001 attacks. But Mr Trump has taken the measures to a new level, as he seeks to take muscular executive actions that avoid the cost of military entanglements and yet have an impact.

The world looks at US policy . . . and theres an unpredictability to it that makes for a high degree of nervousness

The Treasury last year added 944 people and entities to its sanctions list the highest number since 2001, according to Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. Adam Smith, a partner at the law firm and a former senior sanctions official at the US Treasury, said it was on track to add a further 1,000 names this year.

It is almost a perfect storm, said John Smith, a former head of the Treasurys Office of Foreign Assets Control now at Morrison & Foerster, another law firm.

You have global crises that the US wants to confront, you have a Congress that is sceptical of the administration, particularly with respect to Russia . . . and you have an administration that is far more willing to confront not only foes, but also friends.

Mr Trumps decision to sanction two Turkish cabinet ministers over Ankaras refusal to release a US pastor who is under house arrest was an unprecedented move against a Nato ally, although....

New paradigms in addiction therapy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

"The Difference Between Medicine And Poison Is In The Dose" - Circa Survive A true enveloping substance addiction is gritty, and tends to be enabled by a varying degree of self-loathing. Self-loathing is such a tumultuous, seemingly endless circumstance that any decent person would not wish on their worst enemy-yet it is something that many decent people deal with on a regular basis. Modern advancements in cognitive sciences have conclusively shown that this state of mind (self-loathing, low self-esteem, an existential dilemma of similar nature with a deep tone, et cetera) is a neurological state that is considered "cognitive dissonance." This means, with the many layers of consciousness that it takes to assimilate a "Waking Consciousness/Diachronic Narrative," there can be pieces that don't meet; there are pieces missing from the self-image of the individual, and this causes a literal dissonance in a person's biosocial interactions and feedback. The "missing pieces" come from the person's own neurological landscape, and are perpetuated/reinforced/diminished by the environment according to what the environment represents, and how the individual person has been predisposed to stress-handling-mental-mechanisms beforehand.

Operation Dollar Dump: Following sanctions Turkey looks for alternatives to US domination "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The process of de-dollarization, which specifically stipulates scrapping the dollar as the world's reserve currency, continues to gain strength among the BRICS countries and in Iran. Turkey is also taking active steps in this direction, which indicates its desire to ditch the dollar, Turkish political analyst Can Selcuki told Sputnik. Can Selcuki, director general of the Research Center for Economic and Foreign Policy Issues (EDAM) in Turkey, recalled that during a recent BRICS summit, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned that if the West does not abandon its policy of pressuring Turkey, Ankara will use alternative measures, including the use of its national currency during trade transactions. "However, it is hard to say with certainty how realistic this step will be. Despite the fact that significant volumes of products imported by Turkey are supplied by China, Germany and Russia, the prices for many types of imported goods are tied to the dollar," Selcuki said. He explained that avoiding the dollar will only be possible if Ankara manages to implement the pricing of domestically-made products completely in local currency, an option which he said currently "looks unrealistic."

Censorship PURGE points to imminent false flag violence before mid-term elections bigger than 9/11? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Image: Censorship PURGE points to imminent false flag violence before mid-term elections bigger than 9/11?

(Natural News) For the last two months, Ive been warning about the rising risk of a major false flag attack taking place before the mid-term elections. The aggressive, unprecedented PURGE of Alex Jones / InfoWars underscores the desperation of the totalitarian deep state thats about to make a move to eliminate President Trump and / or steal the elections.

Anyone who believes that the sudden de-platforming of Alex Jones across over a dozen online services and platforms isnt coordinated collusion is delusional. The coordinated de-platforming effort is clearly directed by the deep state to eliminate a prominent, dissenting voice in preparation for unleashing a history-shaping false flag attack thats likely going to be bigger than 9/11.

The radical Left is escalating its violence across America, and the tech giants are dramatically escalating their censorship actions to silence all independent voices that might question any official narrative. It all points to something big about to come down something so big that only the official narrative can be allowed to be heard or spoken.

We are living under an Orwellian totalitarian regime beyond any horrific imagination. Google, Apple, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other tech giants are engaged in the most criminal, malicious racketeering and tyranny imaginable. This is not sheer coincidence. Theyve all been ordered to censor the independent media in preparation for whats coming next. As I explain in this video, the most likely false flag assault to be staged by the Left might be a mass shooting at CNN or another media giant, all staged with impressive theatrics t...

Chronic: For big pharma, the perfect patient is wealthy, permanently ill and a daily pill-popper "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Just a few years ago, infection with the hepatitis C virus guaranteed a slow and certain death for many. Available treatments were effective in about half of all patients, and the side effects could be awful. Things changed in 2014, when a new medication called Harvoni was approved to treat the infection. With cure rates approaching 99 per cent and far fewer side effects, the medication became an instant blockbuster. Sales topped $13.8 billion in 2015. But then an odd thing happened - sales began to drop precipitously. Harvoni, in conjunction with four other hepatitis C drugs, is projected to generate only $4 billion this year, a three-fold decline in as many years. Part of this decline is due to new competitors entering the market. But according to analysts at Goldman Sachs, another reason could be that the drug's cure-rate erodes its own market.

Secret Israeli Report Reveals Armed Drone Killed Four Boys Playing on Gaza Beach in 2014 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A confidential report by Israeli military police investigators seen by The Intercept explains how a tragic series of mistakes by air force, naval, and intelligence officers led to an airstrike in which four Palestinian boys playing on a beach in Gaza in 2014 were killed by missiles launched from an armed drone.

Testimony from the officers involved in the attack, which has been concealed from the public until now, confirms for the first time that the children four cousins ages 10 and 11 were pursued and killed by drone operators who somehow mistook them, in broad daylight, for Hamas militants.

The testimony raises new questions about whether the attack, which unfolded in front of dozens of journalists and triggered global outrage, was carried out with reckless disregard for civilian life and without proper authorization. After killing the first boy, the drone operators told investigators, they had sought clarification from their superiors as to how far along the beach, used by civilians, they could pursue the fleeing survivors. Less than a minute later, as the boys ran for their lives, the drone operators decided to launch a second missile, killing three more children, despite never getting an answer to their question.

Suhad Bishara, a lawyer representing the families of the victims, told The Intercept that Israels use of armed drones to kill Palestinians poses many questions concerning human judgment, ethics, and compliance with international humanitarian law.

Remotely piloted bombers alter the process of human decision-making, Bishara said, and the use of the technology in the 2014 beach attack expands the circle of people responsible for the actual killing of the Bakr children.

Just hours before the attack, on the morning of July 16, 2014, the public relations unit of the Israel Defense Forces had been promoting the idea that the live video feeds provided by drones enabled its air force to avoid killing Palestinian civilians.

The PR unit released operational footage, apparently taken from the screens of Israeli drone operators, which documented how three Israeli airstrikes had been called off that week because figures, identified as civilians, had appeared close to targets in the densely populated Gaza Strip.

Those images were released one week into Israels Operation Protective...

PreFab Housing "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A four-story building built in four days with apartments that include closets, a kitchenette, a sofa that converts to a queen-size bed, and a flat-screen TV? We are used to seeing that kind of thing in China but this development was in, of all places, Berkeley.

Berkeleyside: This new 22-unit project from local developer Patrick Kennedy (Panoramic Interests) is the first in the nation to be constructed of prefabricated all-steel modular units made in China. Each module, which looks a little like sleekly designed shipping containers with picture windows on one end, is stacked on another like giant Legos.

Cost savings on the housing itself were significant but local assembly was still expensive. Organized labor isnt very happy:

Organized labor also dislikes that these MicroPADs are manufactured abroad.

Wed rather they be constructed here instead of China so they dont undercut wages and conditions, said Michael Theriault, secretary-treasurer of the San Francisco Building and Construction Trades Council, in 2016 to the San Francisco Chronicle. And we want them built under local building code and inspected by local inspectors.

Cost savings wont be passed on to consumers if the quantity of housing supplied isnt increased so this isnt a solution to high-prices in quantity-constrained cities. Nevertheless, construction costs rather than land supply are an important constraint elsewhere in the country. Moreover, its good to see experiments in improving construction productivity, one of our most important but productivity lagging sectors.

7 Instagram Secrets You Need to Know For Business Interest "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Social marketing has over the years been proven to be much more than simply a fad. By utilizing social marketing properly, you can promote your website for just a fraction of what you spend on conventional marketing. Instagram might be one of the recent social media sites that a good number of businesses have seen a significant return on investment using but its still an excellent resource for businesses that can maximize on return on investment effortlessly.

It does not just count as the star child of the social media scene, its popularity is similarly on a continuous rise and with the recent introduction of Instagram Stories, this fact has been amplified to greater extents. To get the most out of this powerhouse platform, you will not only need more eyes on your content but also enough to convince your followers to invest in whatever youre selling.

Agriculture a major regional opportunity for PNG "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Papua New Guinea public had their say on APEC Food Security week at the third event of the APEC Discussion Series at the Precinct, which was themed Growing the nation: Agriculture, Inclusive Growth and Regional Opportunities.

The event was held on Tuesday 7 August at the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) and included a keynote address from Grahame Dixie, Executive Director of Grow Asia, a multi-stakeholder partnership platform that catalyses action on inclusive agricultural development in South East Asia.

Mr Dixie said PNG can look to examples of South East Asian economies which have been able to kick-start their economic development by initially focusing on increasing the productivity of their smallholder farmers.

The world is changing rapidly creating both challenges and opportunities for farming. Agribusinesses need additional supplies of agricultural raw materials to supply the changing, expanding, and largely urban demand, he said.
The great opportunity is that agribusinesses have the capacity, through their buying power, to bring significant new sources of cash income into the rural economy this is the fuel for eliminating rural poverty.

Mr Dixie pointed to a case from Indonesia, where a coffee industry partnership between a major transnational corporation, nurseries, fertilizer companies, NGOs, certifiers, banks and local traders has lifted farmers harvests and improved the prices they receive.

He said this outcome was due to a combination of certification, competition and improved quality, and the tangible impact has been that around 20,000 farmers increased their coffee profits by more than 80 per cent - worth approximately US$12 million per year.

In PNG the approach of creating and working with multi-stakeholder partners typically comprising agribusiness, producers, civil society and government can bring similar benefits, Mr Dixie said.

There are problems that cannot be solved by an individual company or institution, but can be tackled cooperatively.

The event also included a panel discussion that featured Jane Ravusiro, Senior National Coordinator at the Pacific Horticultural and Agricultural Market Access Program (PHAMA); Joeri Kalwij, the Manager of Monpi Coffee Exports Ltd; and Max Puritau, Global Village Exports Managing Director.

Huge Funding cuts for Education could kill TFF policy : Pruaitch "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Opposition Leader Patrick Pruaitch said today free education has received a fatal budget cut in the 2018 Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO).

He said: The revised MYEFO budget has slashed funding for the Department of Education by K601.3 million to K275.5 million with K191.2 million to be disbursed in the second half of this year.

If these figures are not urgently revised a major financial crisis will engulf the education system and schools throughout the country with no explanation given by the government for the dramatic cut back in funding.

Many schools in various provinces are already in deep trouble because some K60 million in Tuition Free Fee funding has yet to be distributed from last year.

Mr. Pruaitch said no reason was provided for the big cut in education funding.

This government is flush with more funds than any government in our history, with total revenue this year projected to rise by K1.4 billion to K12.94 billion compared with the record revenue received last year.

Mr. Pruaitch said it is highly ironical that in the year PNG is playing host to the APEC Summit the only other department to face a budget cut from the 2018 national budget allocation has been the troubled Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, where funding was cut by K6.4 million to K32.5 million.

PNG staff at foreign missions have suffered financial hardships in recent years because of inadequate funding from the Department of Foreign Affairs. These problems can only become worse in the year ahead.

While education and foreign affairs suffered major funding cuts, the revised MYEFO budget gave significant increases to departments that included:

         Prime Minister and NEC, up K14.1 million to K170.7 million;

         Department of Treasury, up K8.4 million to K148.6 million;

         Department of Personnel Management, up K10.5 million to K98.4 million;

         Electoral Commission, up K16.7 million to K38.3 million and

         Provincial and Local Government Affairs, up K14.6 million to K57.2 million.

Rabid beaver attacking father and daughter while kayaking caught on video "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A Pennsylvania man and his daughter said they were attacked by a large beaver while they were kayaking in Adams County on Aug. 5. Dan Wherley and Layla, 7, were kakaying down Conewago Creek when the beaver came close to them. "I looked, and it was a beaver scratching at it, and I thought 'Wow, that's pretty cool-a beaver came up to us!' It wouldn't stop, so I used my paddle tried to hit it to get it away, and it just wouldn't stop, wouldn't stop," Wherley told WPMT-TV in a report on Aug. 9. "The beaver came up to the kayak, and tried to get in the kayak," said Layla. "I jumped out of my kayak and ran to her. I got to her kayak the same time the beaver did, it climbed up on the back of her kayak, started to, and I had to punch it to get it off, cause I didn't have anything with me," added Wherley in the report.

PNG Police Force lacks supervision and leadership "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

THERE is a complete lack of supervision and leadership within the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary and every personnel must practice leading roles within the establishment and taking into consideration the principles of discipline.

This was made known to a discipline workshop recently by Northern Command Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Peter Guinness.

He told the course participants, mostly from the Lae Metropolitan and PPC Morobe Command that they must take some hard yards when it comes to leadership and management in their own sections or units in policing.

Most of your members are off target. You are not coordinating their performances and not managing policing affairs within. They are all over the place. We need to keep stock of their performances well, he said.

Guinness, who is also the Divisional Commander, said they are not looking after their subordinates in terms of supervision and daily affairs of policing in their respective areas of responsibilities. That is why they still continue to have discipline issues in their organization.

Lae Metropolitan Commander Chief Superintendent Anthony Wagambie Jr thanked the Internal Affairs Directorate (IAD) for the leadership workshop as it is needed urgently in their workplace.

He said there were many challenges they have gone through and one of the biggest challenges is discipline. It is high time they must all be well acquainted and content with what will be presented.
Director IAD Chief Superintendent Robert Ali said that the discipline workshop was very important as it would refresh section or team leaders the importance of discipline. The discipline continues to break down even when the Commissioner of Police Gari Baki introduced year of discipline.

He said the Commissioner has already identified 2016/17 as year of discipline but respective line managers and supervisors (non-commissioned officers) have failed to implement and therefore, they have their personnel with all sort of discipline issues.

Some of the notes that they have covered includes human rights and police functions, levels of discipline, serious disciplinary offences, ethics and corruption, decision making process, among others

Updating a 1999 Saab with an Arduino "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Unless your car is fresh off the lot, youve probably had the experience of riding in a newer car and seeing some feature or function that triggered a little pang of jealousy. It probably wasnt enough for you to run out and sign yourself up for a new car loan (which is what the manufacturer was hoping for), but it was definitely something you wished your older model vehicle had. But why get jealous when you can get even?

[Saabman] wished his 1999 Saab 9-5 had the feature where a quick tap of the turn signal lever would trigger three blinks of the indicator. Realizing this was an electronic issue, he came up with a way to retrofit this function into his Saab by adding an Arduino Pro Micro to the vehicles DICE module.

The DICE (which stands for Dashboard Integrated Central Electronics) module controls many of the accessories in the vehicle, such as the lighting and wipers. In the case of the blinkers, it reads the state of the signal lever switches and turns the blinkers on and off as necessary. After poking around the DICE board, [Saabman] found that the 74HC151 multiplexer chip he was after: the state of the blinker switches could be read from pins 1 and 2, and hed even be able to pull 5 V for the...

The Persian Gulf: What Lies Beneath One Particular Event "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

1133

The online news publication The Intercept referred to their sources in diplomatic circles in its reports that Arabic countries lobbied to have Rex Tillerson removed from his post as the US Secretary of State because they were not happy with his work. According to information leaked to the press, the US Secretary of State irritated Riyadh and Abu Dhabi by interfering with their plans to attack and occupy Qatar in the summer of last year, when a crisis was contrived around this small state. Incidentally, experts note that the American society has not, for some reason, reacted with indignation towards open attempts to interfere in its internal politics, despite the fact that these particular Arabic nations forced Rex Tillerson from his post, while, at the same time, the topic of Russias alleged involvement in the 2016 elections is still front page news.

It is worth noting at this stage that during the political crisis that started a year ago and pitted Doha against its Arabic neighbors in the Persian Gulf, Tillerson went to great lengths to de-escalate the situation in the region, and prevent the attack against Qatar and its occupation. According to reports by the US media, he made numerous phone calls to convince Saudi Arabia and the UAE to abstain from deploying their military against Qatar. In addition, Rex Tillerson, as the US Secretary of State, actively encouraged the US Secretary of Defense James Mattis to engage in negotiations with his Saudi Arabian counterpart in order to convince the Saudis to reconsider their military operation against Doha, and to demonstrate Washingtons displeasure at their actions.

However, the Saudi King, his Crown Prince, and emirs who had already started to view Qatar and its vast financial riches as their property, which could help them improve their economic situation quickly, and turn their budget deficit into surplus, were not able to stop in time.

They had had experience in similar affairs, as witnessed during an echo of the Arab Spring in the neighboring Bahrain, dubbed the Pearl revolution. At the time, the Shiite population, which accounts for 80 % of all of the Kingdoms residents, decided to change the balance of power in their favor. But they did not stand a chance, Saudi and other Arabic forces quickly took control over territories in Bahrain and kept the Sunni King in power.

During the Qatari crisis, the neighboring Arabic nations decided to follow suit and occupied the state, but Rex...

Venezuela Assassination Attempt: Maduro Survives but Journalism Doesnt "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ricardo Vaz from IvestigAction Venezuela was rocked this past Saturday by an attempted assassination of President Nicolas Maduro, during a public event, using drones armed with explosives. But as more details started to become available, the coverage of the mainstream media actually moved in the opposite direction: one after the other they have looked to sow doubt on the events, using words such as apparent or alleged, focusing instead on the government using this alleged event to step up repression. In the end, it is hard to tell apart the media coverage from the statements of John Bolton, one of the more hawkish advisers to the US president. Although there are plenty of examples to choose from, we are going to focus on our personal champion of dishonest Venezuelan coverage The Guardian. A quick search of Guardian headlines with assassination attempt shows that a qualifier such as alleged is never used. Be it Jacques Chirac, Guineas president, or even Saddam Husseins deputy, nobody had their assassination attempts questioned as a hoax to be used as a pretext to stamp out dissent. Such is the

5 Things to Consider to Promote Your Business on Instagram "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Instagram is steadily becoming one of the most popular, most engaging social media applications. It has become a proven social media platform for brand building and marketing especially considering the fact that there are more than 8 million registered business accounts. Additionally, around 80 million photos are uploaded daily on Instagram by its huge and active user base that businesses can tap into.

A greater percentage of this user base is made up of youngsters, a demographic that can be particularly viable and highly valuable for businesses trying to build an audience for the long-term.

This pretty much makes Instagram highly competitive, but with a firmly established brand identity as well as a well-coordinated marketing strategy, you can get your business the right kind of exposure.

The following are 5 things you can leverage to promote your business on Instagram

Seize the Environment

Instagram is now a must-have social network for every marketer. This is more so applicable to younger audiences that are constantly seeking Instagram for brand personality, engagement, and interactions. The platform continues to be an ideal environment for commenting, tagging, liking, and sharing. Additionally, despite the fact that purchases are limited to a link in the users bio, younger generations can be inspired by this to make purchases much easier. The core users of the app can navigate it seamlessly and the videos and images from brands form the basis of driving engagement, which can only help you promote your business even further.

Brand Personality Has to Be Professionally Showcased

If you intend to use Instagram to promote your business, its important to make a clear distinction between your personal and business accounts. For starters, optimize your account such that your attention is focused not just on the product but more on the audience. This means you might have to use photos on travel adventures, friend groups, and selfies. It might seem completely obvious, but a huge amount of personal content tends to make its way to your brand feeds. Think more about what your audience needs to see and not an inside joke or your friends. Striking a good balance between personal and business content, however, you can buy Instagram followers, its a great way to show your excellence.

Your Username Has to Be Simple and Searchable

Watch as "Suicidal" mechanic steals plane from Seattle airport, is chased by F-15 jets and then crashes on island "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Two F-15 fighter jets were scrambled on Friday evening after the unauthorised take-off of an aircraft from a Seattle airport prompted a major security alert. There were no passengers on board when it crashed about 30 miles later, according to local police, who said they knew the identity of the 29-year-old mechanic at the controls and believed him to be suicidal. Flights were halted in and out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Passengers on airliners took to social media to relay messages from air crew as they were told their flights would not be taking off. A Horizon Air Bombardier Dash 8 Q400, reported to be hijacked, flies over Fircrest, Washington, the U.S., before crashing in the South Puget Sound, August 10, 2018 in this still image taken from a video obtained from social media Alaska Air said a Q400 twin-engined plane, operated by its subsidiary Horizon, was involved.

Zoo-born vultures doing well in wild Sardinia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This 10 January 2018 video from Artis zoo in Amsterdam in the Netherlands says about itself (translated):

Today two young griffon vultures (Gyps fulvus) are going from ARTIS to Sardinia to be released in the wild later this year. The birds hatched in April and May last year in ARTIS. One young bird was cared for by a same-sex male griffon vulture couple. The other vulture is the offspring of two vultures which had been injured in the wild in Spain and after having partially recovered were admitted to ARTIS.

Things are going well for these two young vultures, freed on 14 April 2018, Artis reports:

The vultures initially stayed in the vicinity of the protected area in the Parco Regionale di Porto Conte, where they were fed carcasses. The young vultures from ARTIS stayed in the vicinity of the location where they were freed for the first ten days. Around 24 April they both flew to the south and joined a colony of about 140-160 griffon vultures there.

The ARTIS vultures mix well with the other griffon vultures. They fly along with the colony, and are usually seen together a...

BBC Radio Comedy: Elvenquest S03 E01 Giants Castle "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ElvenQuest is a comic fantasy broadcast on BBC Radio 4 by Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto, and starring Stephen Mangan, Alistair McGowan, Darren Boyd, Kevin Eldon, Sophie Winkleman and Dave Lamb. The series takes place in the world of Lower Earth, a parody of Middle-earth from The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. In Lower Earth, a band of warriors go forth to search for a mythical sword to save Lower Earth from the evil Lord Darkness (played by McGowan). In order to do so, they must find The Chosen One who will save Lower Earth. The Chosen One is Amis, a dog in the real world which belongs to a fantasy novelist called Sam Porter (played by Mangan) The first series was broadcast from 29 March to 3 June 2009 and the second from 18 November 2010. The third series began broadcasting from 17 October 2011. The fourth series began broadcasting 12 February 2013

Characters

Sam Porter (Stephen Mangan). An author of fantasy novels with a jaded attitude, especially towards his more fanatical fans. As the series opens his career and personal life are not going well.

Amis, the Chosen One (Dave Lamb). Originally Sams pet dog and best friend in the world, he transforms into a human in Lower Earth but retains canine traits and behaviours.

Vidar the Elf Lord, (Darren Boyd), last of a mighty family of Elf Lords, and the leader of the Questers, despite being somewhat dim. His name may be inspired by Varr, a god in Norse mythology associated with vengeance.

Penthiselea the Warrior Princess (Sophie Winkleman Series 13) (Ingrid Oliver Series 4) in silver breastplate armour and thigh-high boots, who has been promised to Vidar since childhood. Sam is very interested in her, but having been raised as a Warrior Princess she has no concept of relationships with men. Her name may be inspired by Penthesilea, a legendary Amazon warrior-queen.

Dean the Dwarf (Kevin Eldon), a mighty if diminutive warrior with unsavoury personal habits.

Lord Darkness (Alistair McGowan), Lord of Evil, whose efforts to dominate Lower Earth are frustrated by the Questers and his own staff of extremely dimwitted minions.

No Future Youth to Get Day In Court Just Before Midterms "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Supreme Court has upheld the right of a group of young Americans to sue the federal government over its treatment of the environment. After much stalling by both the Obama and the Trump administrations, the court date is confirmed for the last week in October. A date which could turn out to be bad news for the Trump administration, coming as it does a week before midterm elections.

The young plaintiffs are claiming the government has robbed them of their future, an assertion that, if widely aired, might create dissonance around family friendly GOP candidates hoping to retain their majorities in both chambers of Congress this November.

Related: Cities, States, and Kids Sue to Stop Climate Change

This court case is old, unlike the plaintiffs, and has been through a lot. It was originally filed against the Obama Administration in October 2015, by 21 children between the ages of seven and 18 collectively known as Our Childrens Trust.

The Obama administrations defense was that they were working with other nations to manage climate change, which made the plaintiffs charges less sticky. Despite this, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld the case, which the government then appealed.

The litigation took on renewed vigor when self-proclaimed climate change denier Donald Trump moved into the White House, hired the now-disgraced Scott Pruitt to be his head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and pulled out of the Paris climate accord. This change in policy negated the previous administrations defense that it was cooperating on finding ways to lessen climate change, and strengthened the plaintiffs case that their futures were being endangered.

It's 2018 and I Can Still Hack Into Sat-Comms Gear, Sighs Infosec Speaker "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Four years ago, IOActive security researcher Ruben Santamarta came to Black Hat USA to warn about insecurities in aircraft satellite-communication (SATCOM) systems. Now he's back with more doom and gloom.

During a presentation at this year's hacking conference in Las Vegas this week, he claimed he had found a host of flaws in aircraft, shipping, and military satellite comms and antenna-control boxes that can be exploited to snoop on transmissions, disrupt transportation, infiltrate computers on military bases, and more including possibly directing radio-transmission electronics to bathe fleshy humans in unhealthy amounts of electromagnetic radiation.

Its pretty much the same principle as a microwave oven, he told The Register. The flaws allow us to ramp up the frequency.

The vulnerabilities stem from a variety of blunders made by SATCOM hardware manufacturers. Some build backdoors into their products for remote maintenance, which can be found and exploited, while other equipment has been found to be misconfigured or using hardcoded credentials, opening them up to access by miscreants. These holes can be abused by a canny hacker to take control of an installation's antenna, and monitor the information the data streams contain.

Haidar al-Abadi Betrays Iran To Uphold Trumps Sanctions, Proving He Is The US ZOGs Servant And A Disgrace To All Iraqis "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by Jonathan Azaziah

What a disgusting, two-faced, sniveling, subservient piece of trash Haidar al-Abadi is. Delivering a statement on the Tangerine Terrorist Trumps savage new economic measures against the Islamic Republic of Iran that shocked Iraqis, Iranians and even Western and GCC ZOGs, the Iraqi Prime Minister cynically and rather insanely declared, We consider sanctions on Iran to be a strategic mistake and incorrect but we will abide by them to protect the interests of our people. We will not interact with them or support them but nevertheless, we will abide by them. You cannot be opposing the sanctions and abiding by them at the same time! Youre either going to buck Washington and stand with your true ally, Tehran, or youre going to be a dog. Al-Abadi decided to woof-woof and embrace being leashed. One struggles to find the maximum capacity of harshness in condemning such treachery. Cosigning sanctions against Iran will NOT benefit Iraqis even in the slightest. Weve already seen that this AIPAC-driven, American-executed financial war has led to an electricity crisis in Iraqleaving Iraqis with no power and Iranians unpaid for the service theyve been providing for years at a massive discount.

Iran has sacrificed blood and treasure in providing unconditional support to the Iraqi nation against both the US-UK-Zionist invasion in 03 and the rise of MossadDaesh in 14never asking for anything in return except for brotherhood and friendship when it truly counts. Like right now for example. It was Hajj Qassem Suleimani and his IRGC Quds Force (along with Hizbullah, led by martyred Commanders Ibrahim Muhammad al-Hajj and Abdulhamid Mahmoud Sharri, may ALLAH [SWT] be pleased with them both) who REALLY helped Iraq smash ISIS, including in Mosul, NOT America. Iran is Iraqs third biggest trading partner and an integral companion in working numerous strategic oil fields. And despite it being absolutely in the right on this issue, the Islamic Republic has postponed collecting $1.1 trillion in reparations owed to it by Iraq from the Imposed Wardue to Iran knowing how much the Iraqi people have suffered at the hands of Zio-Imperialism and that the horrors of 80-88 werent their fault by any means but that of the Saddam Hussein regime which the US, Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Soviet Union wer...

Government ignoring Grenfell warning signs

Firefighters attending more incidents than ever but cuts to the service continue

FIREFIGHTERS leaders accused the government of ignoring the warning signs of Grenfell today, as new figures showed a rise in incidents amid continued fire service cuts.

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) said that, despite mounting difficulties over the last year, the government continued to starve fire authorities of funding.

There were 564,827 incidents in England in the past year, an increase of more than 4,000.

Firefighters attended more than 167,000 fires, the most since 2011-12, said the FBU, adding that the long period of improvements in public safety has plateaued, with cuts the most likely explanation for the rise.

The union said that, since 2010, one in five firefighting jobs have been cut, including around 10,000 in England.

FBU national officer Dave Green said: These dreadful new figures confirm firefighters worst fears. Austerity cuts are now damaging public safety.

For years, politicians have slashed our service and excused their actions because long-term improvements were still being made.

Now their figures show the public is at greater risk. The......

Does recall purdah benefit Ian Paisley? Will it end up in court? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Not only are there complaints that  three centres are inadequate  to cover the whole of rural North Antrim for recalling Ian Paisley and forcing a by election, but there are complaints about the purdah  on comment it enforces too. This twitter dialogue from two leading commentators Michael Crick of Channel 4 News and Anthony Wells of YouGov covers the point.    

 

The 2015 Recall of MPs Act says that during the 30-day period NOBODY journalists or anyone can make any statements about whether any individuals have signed the petition, or make any forecast of the outcome, based on talking to people who might sign it.

  1. Anthony WellsVerified account@anthonyjwells22h22 hours ago

No. Its worded the same way as the regulation that stops exit polls being published until 10pm on election day. The only real difference is the time scale, because the petition is open for 30 days, voting on election day is only open for 15 hours.

Yes, but the rules on exit polls only apply to a tiny fraction of the actual voting period. They dont apply to 3 or so weeks people can vote by post, and I & others have frequently broadcast interviews with people saying how they have cast their postal ballots.

Multiculti Europe: Dutch PVV councillor commits suicide after publishing testimony that she was 'raped to order' by Muslim gang "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A councilor for the anti-immigration PVV in The Hague has committed suicide, hours after placing a video online in which she claimed to have been kidnapped and raped to order by a Muslim gang over a year ago. Comment: Willie Dille's husband has confirmed this to be true to the daily AD. Willie Dille, 53, who served as an MP for the PVV from 2010 to 2012, said in the video that former PVV MP Arnoud van Doorn, who has since converted to Islam, was behind the attack and that he 'hated her intensely'. The attack happened 'March 15, May 15 2017,' Dille said. The video, which showed a pale and thin-looking Dille looking around nervously, was removed from social media shortly after it went online.

This Simple Chinese Exercise Will Help You With Digestion And Stomach Pain "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Mike Sygula,

This is another small hack I learned from practicing Chi Kung years ago. It is amazing, you can use it when you are in bed, and you feel cold, or if you have a stomach pain. It works, trust me, you might try it for a few minutes or a couple of times before you start seeing a real difference though. If you want to warm up your body, you want to increase digestion or you want to remove pain from the stomach. You can sit or lay in bed, and then you place your palms below the belly button and you breath deeply. You have two options; you either place your right palm on the belly, and the left on top of the right one like the image below: (remember, below the belly button)

The second option is to clasp your fingers together, and place your hands under your belly button, this is where the sacral chakra is located (the orange one). Your palms are very powerful energy channels, as well as your main chakras, and by placing your palms on your chakra you energize it. Do this exercise as long as you feel is necessary, to get the effect you want, either by heating your body up or removing pain from the stomach. I do it for a few minutes sometimes when I need it. Disclaimer: Im not a medical doctor so any health related issues you should consult with your doctor.

If you are interested in meditation and breathing techniques. I have something you might find useful. I started practicing Soma breathing techniques lately and they seem very promising. Soma is a system based on the traditional yog...

Canada's liberal image gets exposed as a sham by $11.5bn Saudi arms deal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A dramatic spat with Saudi Arabia has forced Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to enter the public fray in a bid to calm tempers. But what's bothering Canada is the possible loss of a major Saudi arms contract. The row erupted last weekend when Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland issued a stern rebuke to Saudi Arabia over the arrest of women's rights activists in the oil-rich kingdom. One of those arrested, Samar Badawi, has family connections to Canadian citizens. The Saudis hit back immediately with a fierce response. Riyadh said it was expelling the Canadian ambassador, and recalled its own envoy from Ottawa. Saudi Arabia also warned it was cancelling all new trade and investments in Canada. Initially, Canada's Freeland refused to back down, saying on Monday that her country would "always stand up for human rights." The Saudis then escalated the row by announcing new restrictive measures. Riyadh said it was suspending the state airline's flights to and from Toronto, as well as cancelling imports of Canadian barley and wheat, and recalling thousands of Saudi students, trainee doctors and patients who have been hosted as guests in the country.

Demonoids Torrents and Owner Are Missing in Action "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As one of the oldest torrent communities online, the Demonoid tracker has gone though many ups and downs.

The site has suffered long stretches of downtime, faced legal threats, dealt with internal struggles, but survived nonetheless.

Earlier this year the tracker processed its ten millionth user registration. Things were relatively calm and the original founder, Deimos, was back in charge, working on several improvements.

I want to to see the community we had back. Dont know if its possible but thats my aim, Deimos told us last year when the site started to recover from a long stint of downtime.

The community indeed started to grow again, but roughly a week ago Demonoid ran into what appears to be a technical issue. Suddenly, the torrents started to disappear from the site.

Instead of seeing the usual flood of fresh content, users saw a no torrents found message.

Strangely enough, the top torrents list is working normally. Also, torrents may occasionally appear and disappear after several refreshes, as shown here, but theres clearly something wrong.

While this could be a relatively simple database issue, theres a more serious concern. Its not just the torrents that are missing in action, Deimos is also unreachable, even for members of the sites staff.

Deimos is nowhere to be found for the last few days and I cant reach him, Demonoid staffer Phaze1G says, noting that its a major problem.

Phaze1G says he last spoke to Deimos over a week ago and hasnt been able to get a hold of him since. Demonoids founder was dealing with some personal issues and a business trip, but the lack of communication is unusual.

TorrentFreak also reached out to Deimos a few days ago through our usual channel, but we havent heard back since.

This means that theres likely a small issue that needs to be fixed. However, Deimos is the only person with server-side...

Considered Opinion on Gas Pipelines and Eminent Domain in WV & VA "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Property rights need to be basic in the U.S.

Eminent Domain, Property Worth & Gas Pipelines Have Become Hot Topics

Essay by George Neall, Rockingham County, VA, August 6, 2018

Studies have documented that the construction of gas pipelines can cause the value of properties impacted by the pipelines to decrease an average of more than 30%. Other studies have documented similar decreases in land values caused by fracking. Who pays for these losses? Beyond the decrease in appraised property values, what are some of the other losses that occur as a result of pipeline construction?

There seems to be little useful and publicly available information on getting fairly compensated for the loss of your land, your quiet enjoyment, and other factors if your property is confiscated, despite the fact that condemnation proceedings are not uncommon. You are typically on-you-own when it comes to this. Most people hire an attorney to represent them in such matters. Finding a knowledgeable attorney who has a successful track record in such cases is very important.

Clearing a pipeline pathway through forested and mountainous land will result in the loss of many tons of topsoil. In one instance (not related to pipeline construction) documented in Texas, 23 tons of topsoil per acre were lost in just one rain event on fairly flat land with a slope of just 4%. Who will pay landowners for the loss of topsoil from their land where pipeline construction will result in the denuding of land? In many areas where the pipeline will be installed, ground slopes exceed 50%. Even after being reclaimed, erosion will be astronomical compared to pre-pipeline conditions, especially in forested land.

How much would it cost to have topsoil trucked in and spread on the ground to replace the topsoil that was washed away? What thickness of topsoil loss is equivalent to 23 tons per acre? The answer, shown in the simple calculations below, is just 1/8 in! Soil is not renewable in the classical sense. It takes a long time to form. Allowing topsoil to erode from landowners properties is akin to stealing money from them. Will we allow topsoil thieves get off scot-free like all of the crooked too-big-to-fail bankers?

The weight of a one-foot thickness of topsoil covering one acre of land area is approximately 4,000,000 lbs. Using 23 tons of topsoil loss per acre, we can c...

ST JACINDA REVEALS HER ECONOMIC ILLITERACY "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One is allowed to have genuine fears for the countries economic future when the Prime Minister talks up the continuing slide in the value of the New Zealand dollar as a positive.

If  'she' had the slightest understanding of economics she would know that you cannot 'buy' economic prosperity by the sustained devaluation of the country's currency.

While this might help exporters in the short term every individual pays a price for that by way of the increased cost of imported goods especially fuel imports.   It adds to inflation and puts upward pressure on interest rates.

You add to that the increased cost of servicing the of the nation's o'seas debt, a debt which, in the first quarter of 2018, rose to a new record high of 273275 millions of dollars (up 2709 millions of dollars).

Throw into the mix the decision by Fonterra not to pay any further dividend this year coupled with a reduction in the farmgate milk price paid to farmers to $6.70 a kilo of milk solids and 'her' stock message of relentless positivity wears increasingly thin.

Note too the growing voice of economic commentators who are backtracking on their earlier derision of Steven Joyce's warning of a fiscal hole in the government's economic plan.   Looks like history will be repeating itself with National having to pick up the pieces of the CoL mismanagement of the economy.

Stuffed Turkey? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Really, my dear chap, you seem to be reading too many romantic thrillers. This is no romance dear friend, this is reality. John Forsythe, The Day of the Jackal
Erdogan - from God's mouth to his ear.
Turkey's lira has fallen to a record low against the dollar, and its $860 billion economy is teetering on the edge of a full-blown financial crisis. Readers of this blog will understand that the view of Turkey's invasion of Northern Syria to kill Kurds and it's closer ties to Iran while the rhetoric is stepped up against the US is not endearing.

Turkey's President (now president-for-life and sultan), Recep Tayyip Erdogan's move to what is essentially a theocracy with himself as Allah's mouthpiece could only be deemed successful by the western-influenced Turkish population if he was able to deliver strong economic growth. 
The Lira slumped to a fresh all-time low of 6.4915 against the dollar Friday, extending its year-to-date plunge past 30%, before paring the decline to 5.99 after a trade delegation of senior government officials left Washington yesterday with no verifiable progress on the White House's decision to review Turkey's "duty free" access to the U.S. market.

North Korea Moving The Goal Posts for the U.S. Mike Pompeo, Donald Trump in a Pickle With Kim Jong Un "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Trump is in a long tradition of American presidents who have been taken to the cleaners.

Pyongyang wants the U.S. to formally declare the end of the Korean War before it begins dismantling its nuclear arsenal. Officials said that was not part of the Singapore deal.

North Korea is insisting that the United States declare that the Korean War is over before providing a detailed, written disclosure of all its atomic weapons stockpiles, its nuclear production facilities and its missiles as a first major step toward denuclearization.

The Night My Mother Lost Her Faith "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Nobel Peace Prize winning economist Milton Friedman once said that you can have mass immigration or you can have the welfare state. But you can't have both.

Hallway medicine is a reality in many Canadian hospitals

Aged hospitals, atrocious wait times, fewer cutting edge treatments, fewer new drugs, a shortage of doctors, a paucity of acute care hospital beds, unfunded liabilities that constitute 46% of the national economy, a middling performance about among countries with universal medical access----yes, the truth is out about Canadas acclaimed health care system.

You know, the one that American progressives love so much from afar. The one that Canadians ardently loved too---until the 1990s. Then two things happened.

One was a dramatic shift in immigration policy taken by the then Brian Mulroney government at the end of the 1991, when it was announced that annual immigration intakes would virtually double. The second thing to happen was that wait times for necessary surgical procedures grew longer. And longer---until today, the median wait time today of over 21 weeks is twice as long as it was then.

Coincidence? It would stretch credulity to the extreme to deny a connection. The greater the number of patients, the greater demand that is placed on the system, and immigration-driven population growth has added more than 7 million medical consumers to the queue since the departure of Lyin Brian.

Last year, Canadian taxpayers spent roughly $250 billion on health care, an expenditure equivalent to ll.5% of Canadas GDP. That works out to over $6,600 per person. Now, one would think that that would be enough to provide us with the comprehensive care we crave. But its not. Ours is not an integrated system. Unlike the British National Health Service for example, physiotherapy, dental care and vision care are not covered. Neither are ambulance rides, plus a host of other out-of-pocket expenditures, including, for most of us, the crippling cost of drugs. If the Trudeau government delivers on the promise of a national pharmacare program, you can add another thousand bucks to the $6,600. A figure thats been growing 4% a year of late.

Our Crowded classrooms and Weary Teachers  in PNG Schools ; let parents pay the school fees.

By Joseph Sukwianomb, Chancellor of the University of Goroka

The invitation by the publishers of the Messenger is here by acknowledged and hence this short piece for the August 2018 edition, And Congratulations are in order!

I welcome this publication, the first of its kind. The request by the Messenger was for this author to share some initial views about the provision of education in our current era, and a reflection on how well or how far we have come, say from the time of independence in 1975 to 2018. To think that a statement can be made or a fair treatment of the subject for the said time period would not be possible. The provision of quality education is a big challenge for all in PNG.

So, it would thus be a summary or brief reflections on the current provision of education in PNG  through the eye of an individual commentator. It is based on his experience as well as collection of views from worthy commentors on our formal school based education.

One of the things that fascinates some observers about PNG education policies and implemenation is the dynamics of scales, which is that we have to deal with the two opposite ends of this rather poorly defined clarities or matches between policies and implementation. Often times, serious education policy experts get derailed by political opportunists who think they know better! .
In fact most often than not, many examples of failed polices in education provision, an example would be the so called fee free education programs in this country. For all we know, serious education policy experts are helpless when decision are made in board rooms devoid of well researched and thought out policies options, and hence implementation.

Public statements uttered by some of our leaders about volume of students attending schools, well, indeed the sad part is the unsaid truth about quality, with seemingly large student numbers, crammed in the space meant for say 30 the most,  thus making teachers unable to deliver serious skills and knowledge contents. The sheer numbers of students, ratio of one to sixty plus make many, if not all teachers go mental, as was related to this writer in a recent conversation.

The requirements for the national education is among others the need to train competent teachers in both contents as well as classroom management. That these teachers are recognised and remunerated to well and in time.. Many teachers that we know from primary to secondary schools face so much challenges, be their registration as teachers or them being on the payroll. We know too that even schools are not able to loan monies for basic necessities from achoo funds, because the promised subsidies do not get to schools on t...

The no-platforming of Infowars is a landmark event in the information age "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Always the trend-setter, Apple's decisive action against Infowars has led to an unprecedented domino effect. After Apple delisted podcast links from the right-wing media outlet, Spotify soon followed. Facebook made a decision to 'unpublish' Infowars' pages hours later, before the group's main home, YouTube, said it had 'terminated' the group's channel, watched by 2.5 million subscribers. Hundreds of well-intentioned campaigners, commentators and even journalists are celebrating the public hanging of Infowars - but this style of execution benefits no one. The major internet platforms are increasingly society's chief arbiters of free speech. Our conversations, relationships, businesses and democracies are increasingly mediated by a handful of global, for-profit companies. Those companies are within their rights to set their own rules about who can and cannot share information on their sites - but Facebook and YouTube have become de facto global information services. Of the world's 3 billion internet users, 2.2 billion are active Facebook users and 1.8 billion have active YouTube accounts. When tech giants hold a monopoly on free speech online, that responsibility must be taken particularly seriously.

Thomas Massies Restoring Americas Leadership in Innovation Act of 2018 (RALIA) Would Put the US Patent System in the Lions (or Trolls) Mouth Again "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Patent maximalism would gradually corrode if not doom the patent system, making US patents obsolete and lawsuits frivolous

3 big cats

Summary: An anti- 101 and anti-PTAB bill from Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) strives to remove quality control; but by handing the system back to patent trolls he and his proponents simply strive to create more business of litigation, at the expense of innovation

THE Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) inter partes reviews (IPRs), typically affirmed by the Federal Circuit and largely defended by management of the USPTO, which is more than just Iancu, is a little bit like the appeal boards at the EPO. The job of PTAB is assuring quality of patents. PTAB is used to stop or prevent frivolous patent litigation with abstract patents something which increasingly happens in Europe, as we've just noted.

Earlier this month PTAB accomplished the following thing, which was celebrated yesterday by Unified Patents. Mr. Jain wrote:

On August 3, 2018, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) terminated IPR2017-01672 pursuant to a joint request filed by Quantum Stream Inc. (a subsidiary of XpresSpa, AKA Form Holdings) and Unified Patents. U.S. Patent 9,047,626, the subject of the IPR petition, relates to systems for delivering content, such as a digital video program, to a user device.

This is seemingly a software patent. It should not have been granted. But patent maximalists beg to differ; they mislead the media and mislead politicians about this.

PORT MORESBY As Papua New Guinea prepares to host the APEC (Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation) leaders summit in November there are high hopes that the event will unlock the potential of the nation.

Leaders of the worlds biggest powers will converge on Port Moresby to discuss trade and investment.

It is billed by the PNG government as the ultimate chance to unlock the rich resources and the economic potential of the country.

Despite a struggling economy and record debt levels, the government went on a borrowing spree to develop the citys infrastructure in time for APEC for three days from 15-17 November.

Radio New Zealands Johnny Blades and Koroi Hawkins are currently in PNG and will continue to report on this event in which the country holds high hopes.

We put together a video report about APEC. Please take a few minutes to check it out, Johnny writes.

The rhino was killed by poachers in Lake Nakuru park/FILE

NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 8 A suspect linked to the killing of a 12-year-old rhino at Lake Nakuru National Park on Tuesday last week has been arrested.

The suspected poacher, whose name was withheld, was booked for interrogation at the Kongoni Police Station in Nakuru following hus arrest on Tuesday night.

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) tweeted on Wednesday afternoon that a rifle and six pieces of ivory were recovered from the suspect.

He was booked at Kongoni Police Station in Nakuru and interrogation is underway, KWS stated.

On Tuesday, the service announced that it was seeking another set of poachers following the recovery of eight pieces of ivory at the Archers Post in Samburu County.

According to the agency, the poachers fled leaving behind the ivory consignment and an assortment of arms.

The Tuesday night arrest came at a time heightened public anger over the death of all the eleven black rhinos translocated to the Tsavo East National Park in June.

An official report released on July 26 indicated that ten of the eleven rhinos had died due to acute dehydration triggered by the uptake of saline water.

According to a six-member probe team that investigated the deaths, the rhinos suffered Multiple Stress Syndrome escalated by the update of saline water as well as starvation.

The inquest reported starvation, proliferation of opportunistic bacteria in upper respiratory tract (Pasteurella species), gastric ulcers and gastritis as contributing factors to the deaths.

The last of the eleven rhinos died on Monday after its condition worsened on Saturday.

The rhino was, at the time of its death, nursing wounds inflicted on it by a pride of rhinos that attacked it last month.

Secret Israeli Report Reveals Armed Drone Killed Four Boys Playing on Gaza Beach in 2014 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A confidential report by Israeli military police investigators seen by The Intercept explains how a tragic series of mistakes by air force, naval, and intelligence officers led to an airstrike in which four Palestinian boys playing on a beach in Gaza in 2014 were killed by missiles launched from an armed drone.

Testimony from the officers involved in the attack, which has been concealed from the public until now, confirms for the first time that the children four cousins ages 10 and 11 were pursued and killed by drone operators who somehow mistook them, in broad daylight, for Hamas militants.

The testimony raises new questions about whether the attack, which unfolded in front of dozens of journalists and triggered global outrage, was carried out with reckless disregard for civilian life and without proper authorization. After killing the first boy, the drone operators told investigators, they had sought clarification from their superiors as to how far along the beach, used by civilians, they could pursue the fleeing survivors. Less than a minute later, as the boys ran for their lives, the drone operators decided to launch a second missile, killing three more children, despite never getting an answer to their question.

Suhad Bishara, a lawyer representing the families of the victims, told The Intercept that Israels use of armed drones to kill Palestinians poses many questions concerning human judgment, ethics, and compliance with international humanitarian law.

Remotely piloted bombers alter the process of human decision-making, Bishara said, and the use of the technology in the 2014 beach attack expands the circle of people responsible for the actual killing of the Bakr children.

Just hours before the attack, on the morning of July 16, 2014, the public relations unit of the Israel Defense Forces had been promoting the idea that the live video feeds provided by drones enabled its air force to avoid killing Palestinian civilians.

The PR unit released operational footage, apparently taken from the screens of Israeli drone operators, which documented how three Israeli airstrikes had been called off that week because figures, identified as civilians, had appeared close to targets in the densely populated Gaza Strip.

Those images were released one week into Israels Operation Protective Edge, a 50-day offensive against Hamas militants in Gaza in which Israel would eventually kill 1,391 civilians, including 526 children.

Botswana Project to address human-wildlife conflict starts "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Daily News (Tanzania)

The University of Botswanas Okavango Research Institute (ORI) has started a project dubbed Promoting Sustainable Livelihood (ProSuLi) in Transfrontier Conservation areas.

The project aims to address challenges of human wildlife conflict through research findings which would provide informed solutions.

The research institutes director, Professor Joseph Mbaiwa said the three-year project was funded by the European Union at the tune of P2.5 million.

He was speaking at the unveiling of the project and a new vehicle to be used for the project in Maun on (Friday).

The project area of scope, he said, was the Okavango Delta as communities around the area experienced extensive human wildlife conflicts.

He said issues of elephants raiding crops and predation on livestock heightened conflict. The four communities selected for the project include Seronga, Eretsha, Beetsha and Gunotsoga.

Professor Mbaiwa noted that the project would help with data on how to address human wildlife conflict.

The whole idea is to have sustainable development which will benefit communities now and in future hence the need for amicable solutions, he said.

The head of the project, Dr Richard Fyn said the four villages experienced a lot of conflict, especially elephants raiding crops and cattle killed by wildlife.

He noted that some farmers had resorted to using poison to kill lions, noting that it also affected vultures who fed on poisoned carcasses.

Dr Fyn explained that the project was intended to help affected communities find solutions and improve their livelihoods.

He said one way was through stakeholder meetings in affected communities. Furthermore, he said the...

The Quick-Build PowerWall "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Elon Musk isnt just the greatest human being hes also a great inventor. Hes invented the reusable rocket, the electric car, and so much more. While those are fantastic achievements, Elons greatest invention is probably the PowerWall. The idea of a PowerWall is simple and has been around for years: just get a bunch of batteries and build a giant UPS for your house. Elon brought it to the forefront, though, and DIYers around the world are building their own. Thanks, Elon.

Of course, while the idea of building your own PowerWall is simple, the devil is in the details. How are you going to buy all those batteries? How are you going to connect them together? How do you connect it to your fuse box? Its a systems integration nightmare, made even more difficult by the fact that lithium cells can catch fire if you do something wrong. [jehugarcia] is building his own PowerWall, and he might have hit upon an interesting solution. Hes built a modular system to store and charge hundreds of 18650 cells. It looks great, and this might be the answer to anyone wanting to build their own PowerWall.

Aside from acquiring hundreds of 18650 cells, the biggest problem in building a PowerWall is simply connecting all the cells together. This can be done with 3D printed battery holders, solder, and bus bars, with a few people experimenting with spot welding wires directly onto the cells. This project might be a better solution: it uses standard plastic battery holders easily acquired from your favorite Chinese retailer and a PCB to turn cells into a battery.

The design of this battery module consists of a PCB with sufficiently wide traces, an XT60 power connector, and a few headers for the balance connector of a charger. This is a seven cell setup, and in contrast to the hundreds of hours that go into making a PowerWall the old fashioned way, these modules can be assembled pretty quickly.

Testing of these modules revealed no explosions, and everything worked as intended. There was a problem, though: when drawing a high load, the terminals of these cheap battery connectors got up to 150. That makes these modules unsuitable for high load applications like an e-bike, but it should be okay if youre putting hundreds of these modules together to power your house. It might be a good idea to invest in some cooling, though.

Group-IB: The Shadow Market Is Flooded with Cheap Mining Software "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Group-IB is recording new outbreaks of illegal mining (cryptojacking) threats in the networks of commercial and state organizations.

Group-IB, an international company specializing in the prevention of cyberattacks, is recording new outbreaks of illegal mining (cryptojacking) threats in the networks of commercial and state organizations. According to Group-IBs Threat Intelligence, over a year, the number of shadow-forum ads offering mining software has increased fivefold (H1 2018 vs H1 2017). Group-IB experts say it is a very dangerous tendency to have so many mining Trojans available designed to use other peoples devices and infrastructure for illegitimate generation of cryptocurrency.

Cryptojacking (using computation capacity of a computer or infrastructure for cryptocurrency mining without the knowledge or consent of its owner) is still a comparatively popular method of personal gain, in spite of a clear tendency toward a decrease in the number of incidents of this type of fraud. Growth in the number of such thefts may be caused not only by the growth of mining software offers in Darknet but also by their comparatively low price, which is often less than $0.50.

 

The low entry barrier to the illegal mining market results in a situation where cryptocurrency is being mined by people without technical expertise or experience with fraudulent schemes. When they gain access...

Lets get serious: Saving our planet means more with less "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

PNG
Papua New Guinea as seen from space

PHIL FITZPATRICK

TUMBY BAY - One of the surest long term ways of combatting human induced climate change is to reduce our footprint on the planet.

The best way to do this is to limit the growth of population. The logic is simple: the less of us there are, the less we will collectively need.

With a reduced population we wont need as much energy, food or water. It is something our ancestors knew but which we seem to have forgotten.

By not digging up all our minerals, chopping down all our trees, using all our water and cultivating all our land we will give the planet and the climate a chance to recover.

As simple as the idea sounds the less likely it is to be invoked.

Why not? Well, all of us, but especially our politicians, are just not geared to long term planning.

As a species we have evolved into insatiable consumers.

We want everything and we want it now. If we see someone with something we want more of it and we want bigger and sassier versions of it.

We care little for the future. We dont care that we are going to leave our children and grandchildren a stricken planet. All we care about is that we can have what we want right now.

If we destroy the planet so what? We wont be here to see it, so why worry?

We as individuals and families and our various nations have built up an enormous debt but care little about paying it off thats for future generations to worry about. We have mortgaged the future of those generations and sold them down the river and we dont care one iota.

To pay off our debts our children and grandchildren will simply have to perpetuate our mistakes.

Meanwhile, our electoral cycle driven politicians can only see 3, 4 or 5 years ahead to when the next election occurs.

Just like our lust for everything now they lust only for short term solutions that will win votes at the next election.

Instead of promoting ideas like carefully planned population growth they continue to harp on with ri...

Team Shows Laser Ranging Can 'See' 3-D Objects Melting in Fires "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have used a laser detection and ranging (LADAR) system to image three-dimensional (3-D) objects melting in flames. The method could offer a precise, safe and compact way to measure structures as they collapse in fires.

Optical range measurements, already used in manufacturing and other fields, may help overcome practical challenges posed by structural fires, which are too hot to measure with conventional electromechanical sensors mounted on buildings.

As described in Optica, the NIST demonstration used a commercial LADAR system to map distances to objects melting behind flames that produced varying amounts of soot. The experiment measured 3-D surfaces with a precision of 30 micrometers (millionths of a meter) or better from 2 meters away. This level of precision meets requirements for most structural fire research applications, according to the paper.

[...] LADAR offers several advantages as a tool for imaging through flames. The technique is very sensitive and is able to image objects even when small amounts of soot are present in the flames. The method also works at a distance, from far enough away that the equipment is safe from the intense heat of a fire. In addition, the instrument can be compact and portable, relying on fiber optics and simple photodetectors.

[...] The researchers successfully applied LADAR to measure and map 3-D "point clouds"points are the "voxels" constituting an imageeven in a turbulent fire environment with strong signal scattering and distortion. For comparison, the team also made videos of the chocolate as it melted and images of a more complex plastic skeleton.

[...] The initial experiments were conducted with flames just 50 millimeters wide on lab burners at the University of Colorado Boulder. The preliminary results suggest that the LADAR technique could be applied to larger objects and fires. The NIST team now plans to scale up the experiment, first to make 3-D images of objects through flames about 1 meter wide and, if that works, to make quantitative observations of larger structural fires.

EPO-Style Problem-Solution: Tackling Backlog by Granting Lots of Low-Quality (Bogus) European Patents, Causing a Surge in Troll/Frivolous Litigation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Summary: The EPOs lack of interest in genuine patent quality (measuring quality in terms of speed, not actual quality) may mean nothing but a litigation epidemic; many of these lawsuits would be abusive, baseless; those harmed the most would be small businesses that cannot afford a legal defense and would rather settle with those who exploit questionable patents, notably patent trolls

THE decline/demise of patent quality at the Munich-based patent office isnt just an hypothesis; firms and examiners speak about it. Theyre concerned. They even pen open letters with many signatures. Sometimes petitions. They rightly worry and they understand the long-term ramifications, knowing that the Munich-based patent office (other locations too) relies on its reputation and the high legal certainty once associated with patents assessed to be awarded/granted. Those who understand how the patent system works (either as examiners or law firms staff) want whats best not only for themselves but also for their country/ies. As we last stressed a few days ago, patent maximalism is generally a threat to the entire patent system. Greed can cause the entire thing to collapse.

3D Printed Guns: Debating Inevitability "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

August 11, 2018 (Ulson Gunnar - NEO) - 3D printing and other forms of computer-controlled manufacturing have allowed nations, companies and even individuals the ability to go from consumers to producers. As this technology improves and costs drop, access to this technology and the ability of the technology itself will increase, making it possible for virtually anyone, anywhere to make virtually anything.


In May 2018, prominent US-based corporate-funded policy think tank, RAND Corporation, had published an article titled, "Four Ways 3D Printing May Threaten Security." In it, an argument was made about the dangers of 3D printing becoming more accessible, first by citing 3D printed guns as well as drones and other forms of technology it claimed criminals and terrorists could leverage. But then RAND would reveal a threat, particularly to its corporate sponsors, that highlighted the true fears 3D printing invokes among the captains of established industries decentralization.

The fear of 3D printing "taking jobs" for example, can more accurately be described as taking both jobs and revenue from large corporations and shifting them both to small companies or individual entrepreneurs. Along with this shift, goes the concentration of wealth and influence these large corporations have enjoyed, some since as early as the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.

RAND also feared nations targeted by US sanctions being able to easily circumvent them by acquiring the parts and systems required by simply manufacturing them themselves through the use of technology like 3D printing. In reality, RAND and other representatives of established industries seem more concerned about losing their wealth and influence than of any "threat" such technologies might or might not actually pose.

Syrian defenses down Israeli drone near Damascus "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Syrian air defenses have engaged an incoming "hostile target" in the airspace west of the nation's capital, SANA news reports. According to the report, the intrusion was detected above the area of Deir al-Asha'ir in the Damascus countryside just after midnight. There are no immediate reports of damages or casualties. After its detection to the west of Damascus, the enemy target was "destroyed," SANA's report noted, hinting that Tel Aviv could be behind the attack. However, the origin of the "hostile target" has not been yet identified. Comment: Earlier tonight, the Syrian military spotted an alleged Israeli drone above the western countryside of Damascus, prompting their air defenses to activate and target the unmanned aerial vehicle. According to a military source, the drone was flying over the Deir Al-Asha'ir area of western Damascus before it was finally spotted and downed by their air defenses The Syrian military said their radars tracked the drone and believe it was an Israeli UAV that was conducting a reconnaissance mission above the western countryside of Damascus.

Fluoride not safe

There has never been question or debate about the devastating harms that the fluoride ion, from any of its sources, can have on the human body and nervous system. The only question was whether or not the concentrations in fluoridated water were small enough to entirely avoid those negative effects. Research in the last five years has made it clear that this is not the case, and that ingesting fluoride by drinking optimally fluoridated water, is causing harm. It is time for us to admit that a poison is a poison and stop putting it in our water.
When we discovered that leaded gasoline was causing harm to children inhaling the fumes as they walked to school, we stopped adding lead. We didnt reduce the amount of lead, call it optimally leaded gasoline and say there was no evidence to proved it was still harmful.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats S02 E10 Eye for an Eye "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

.S02 E05 truth or Dare not found

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

Homo erectus, extinct by laziness? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This 2016 video is called HD Documentary: Becoming Human, Episode 2, Birth of Humanity (Homo Erectus).

From Australian National University:

Laziness helped lead to extinction of Homo erectus

August 10, 2018

New archaeological research from The Australian National University (ANU) has found that Homo erectus, an extinct species of primitive humans, went extinct in part because they were lazy.

An archaeological excavation of ancient human populations in the Arabian Peninsula during the Early Stone Age, found that Homo erectus used least-effort strategies for tool making and collecting resources.

This laziness paired with an inability to adapt to a changing climate likely played a role in the species going extinct, according to lead researcher Dr Ceri Shipton of the ANU School of Culture, History and Language.

They really dont seem to have been pushing themselves, Dr Shipton said.

I dont get the sense they were explorers looking over the horizon. They didnt have that same sense of wonder that we have.

Dr Shipton said this was evident in the way the species made their stone tools and collected resources.

To make their stone tools they would use whatever rocks they could find lying around their camp, which were mostly of comparatively low quality to what later stone tool makers used, he said.

At the site we looked at there was a big rocky outcrop of quality stone just a short distance away up a small hill.

But rather than walk up the hill they would just use whatever bits had rolled down and were lying at the bottom.

When we looked at the rocky outcrop there were no signs of any activity, no artefacts and no quarrying of the stone.

They knew it was there, but because they had enough adequate resources they seem to have thought, why bother?.

This is in contrast to the stone tool makers of later periods, including early Homo sapiens and...

FLASHBACK: Asma Al-Assad: The secret power behind Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

TMR Editor's Note: There is perhaps no greater example of INSTANT DEMONIZATION by the Western mainstream media (MSM) than the highly coordinated character assassination of Syria's First Lady Asma al-Assad. What follows is an excellent video of Syrian First Lady Asma al-Assad's first interview since start of Syrian conflict. VIDEO: Syria's First Lady Asma al-Assad's interview with Russia's Channel 24 "Nothing tests the character of a man or woman more than ruthless, relentless and unwarranted persecution." Certainly there are numerous instances of various VIPs and political leaders who have been taken down by the Mockingbird Media. Those who control the Zio-Anglo-American Axis always resort to grotesque acts of defamation of character to ruin a targeted reputation. Anyone in a significant position of power who does not bend to the will of the World Shadow Government is eventually assailed by the press like there's no tomorrow. What makes the utterly fabricated case against Asma al-Assad so unique was the extraordinary speed and savagery of her takedown by the press. In point of fact, the transparent campaign of vilification launched against her revealed the true workings of the MSM like no other. The entire Corporate Media exposed itself after the following accurate article about the First Lady was published by VOGUE in February of 2011.

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


by Noah

Check out the latest Republican high fashion from Ivanka's clothing line! These two Trump super models are proud to parade around in regulation Republican swag that screams "I'm with Donnie and I'm a traitor too!" The model citizen on the right is even sporting an RNC accessory pin on his MAGA hat. All hail President Trump!

I'm not sure what the shirts say on the back. Is it "Proud To Be Stupid" or "Proud To Be One With Putin" or something else? Obviously there is no depth that is too low for Trump supporters. Oh the irony of despising immigrants! But, at least we now know what the White House staff wears on Casual Fridays.

I have other questions like: Are these shirts made in China? If they were made here in the U.S.A., were immigrant workers involved? Did Rand Paul take one to Putin on his "kiss the ring" trip to Moscow? If so, where was Putin wearing the ring? And finally, does the shirt come in XXXXL for Steven Seagal. Now that he's working for Putin, he'll surely want one for every day of the week.

I will be very interested to see how many Republicans wear these new "Shirts By Ivanka" at NFL football games as they boo any players who take a knee.

The time has come to offer Russia-loving Republicans the chance to move to Russia to see just how they'd really like living there. The offer should come with the proviso that once you go, there is no coming back. You have self-deported. Period.

Monsanto loses case against man dying from Roundup cancer "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From CBS in the USA, 10 August 2018:

Monsanto Ordered To Pay $289M To Dying Groundskeeper Who Blames Weed Killer For Cancer

Dewayne Johnsons lawsuit was the first of hundreds of cases filed in state and federal courts alleging that Roundup causes non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

This 10 August 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Terminally Ill Man Awarded $289 Million After Jury Rules Weed Killer Roundup Caused His Cancer

A terminally ill California man won a milestone case against agricultural giant Monsanto after he claimed the companys weed killer, Roundup, gave him cancer.

Dewayne Johnson, 46, was awarded $289 million in damages on Friday after a jury ruled the companys product was the reason he developed non-Hodgkins lymphoma, according to the Associated Press. Monsanto denies the claims their product causes cancer and told the wire they plan to appeal the verdict.

Johnson, a former school groundskeeper, said he used the weed killer regularly while spraying it on the grounds he worked on in the San Francisco Bay Area school district. In one instance, the product left the father of two soaked after a hose broke in 2012, according to CNN.

Qanon - Warning Order Emminent Action "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



Comfy?
Previews are over.
Showtime!


This message came up yesterday. It is a clear declaration that we are now rolling over into actual execution.  Intel processing is essentially complete and sufficient that we will lose little by acting now.  It is also noted that POTUS and entire admin were sequestered for three days.  This naturally presages a major shift in direction or policy.  This means that as we speak, marching orders are been cut and distributed against hard time frames.

The big event should center around mass arrests and a simultaneous release of over 45,000 sealed indictments.  The information contained should make a judicial defense almost impossible and obfuscation equally unlikely.

Alternately, we are also about to get the unredacted FISA warrant. This will also apparently be very destructive to the DEMs.  It is clearly not good news and will expose an illegal criminal conspiracy ordered by the President to subvert the electoral process.

Whatever is landing, it is going to give us a real constitutional crisis, the likes of which has never been imagined.

U.S. Negotiates Retreat From Afghanistan "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



It looks like we will finally  be getting out of Afghanistan once and for all.  It will not be the same as it was before the USA dove in.  If it turns out that the whole enterprise was ginned up by the DEEP STATE through their destruction of the world Trade Center, we are looking at the most futile exercise ever.

It has also captured our imagination for a whole generation.

The best case is to remove our selves ASAP. We can destroy any concentrated force we can locate but  we do not seem able to create a viable government that makes sense. Or more correctly we need to create a separate Pathan state from the southern swath of Afghanistan and actually parts of Pakistan.

That is not going to happen until they kill a lot more of each other..


U.S. Negotiates Retreat From Afghanistan
July 30, 2018

The United States seems ready to give up on Afghanistan.

After the World Trade Center came down the U.S. accused al-Qaeda, parts of which were hosted in Afghanistan. The Taliban government offered the U.S. to extradite al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden to an Islamic country to be judged under Islamic law. The U.S. rejected that and decided instead to destroy the Afghan government.

Taliban units, supported by Pakistani officers, were at that time still fighting against the Northern Alliance which held onto a few areas in the north of the country. Under threats from the U.S. Pakistan, which sees Afghanistan as its natural depth hinterland, was pressed into service. In exchange for its cooperation with the U.S. operation it was allowed to extradite its forces and main figures of the Taliban.

U.S. special forces were dropped into north Afghanistan. They came with huge amounts of cash and the ability to call in B-52 bombers. Together with the Northern Alliance they move towards....

The Life Changing Benefits Reported from Out-of-Body Experiences "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 
We will all need to transition to a true higher state of being.  It is a process and most have been taught to not pursue it and many who have pursued it are very much misguided.

My central teaching is that the spirit body itself is a physical entity akin to a huge super computer and is tasked with operating every cell in our body.  Understanding that and that it is like the internet in terms of its connectives helps a lot in terms of acceptance.

Until that is understood, any opinion merely confirms ignorance and this discourages acceptance.  Thus the natural falling away of folks from established religions, who have even abandoned spirituality itself in many cases simply because what practice is used has usually failed to do its job.

Also, hard to believe her assertion, "there is no Marxism in the cult" and "they hate Israel and hope one day to see it destroyed." Nonetheless, many other assertions like the Nazis being Illuminati, and the CIA-Freemason connection, ring true.

This is pretty clear description of what is underway.  It is a major conflict and it will roll out world wide.  It is not a conflict in which armies will take the field but one in which the military can and will provide operational support.

Hearing about all of this Russian hacking, Trump, and politics, in general, these days seems to be like eating the same type of food every night, you literally get sick of it. This begs the question, should we even pay attention to it? Of course, we should, the political realm and the corporate stranglehold over it (and above that sit the financial elite) are taking advantage of us because WE are the ones that allow this entire charade to continue. It would be the same thing as not paying attention to the fact that pharmaceutical drugs are killing many people. There are many examples.

The Shortage of US Dollars "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

What people have to understand is that the Federal Reserve is moving in the opposite direction with respect to its monetary base. The Adjusted Monetary Base is the sum of currency (including coin) in circulation outside Federal Reserve Banks and the U.S. Treasury, plus deposits held by depository institutions at Federal Reserve Banks. These data are adjusted for the effects of changes in statutory reserve requirements on the quantity of base money held by depositories. This peaked with the Economic Confidence Model turn in 2015 on October 1st. The Fed has been shrinking its balance sheet and believe it or not, there has been growing a SHORTAGE of dollars contrary to those who keep saying the world is awash with dollars so buy gold, cryptocurrencies, or whatever.

I have been stating that (1) were are in a major bull market for the dollar, and (2) it is the US economy that is supporting the world. What I mean is simply this.

Trump thanks Kanye for telling the truth on Jimmy Kimmel "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President Trump thanked Kanye West on Friday for the Yeezus rappers show of support on Jimmy Kimmels show.

Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH, Trump tweeted.

One new and great FACT African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. So honored by this. Thank you Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference!

West said late Thursday that he wanted to back Trump, in part, because entertainers and African Americans are too often pigeonholed to only support Democrats.

Just as a musician, African-American guy out in Hollywood all these different things, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me and then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldnt say it out loud or my career would be over, Id get kicked out (of) the black community, because blacks, were supposed to have a monolithic thought we can only be Democrats, West told Jimmy Kimmel Live.

But West who famously tore into GOP President George W. Bushs reaction to Hurricane Katrina seemed caught off-guard when Kimmel brought up the Trump-ordered separation of asylum seekers from their children at the southern border.

There are families being torn apart at the border of this country, Kimmel said. Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are what matter. You so famously, and so powerfully said, George Bush doesnt care about black people. What makes you think that Donald Trump does or any people at all?

The 41-year-old West went silent, looked up and folded his arms as nervous laughter came from the studio audience.

Kimmel had to cut short the awkward moment: Why dont we take a break.

Experts explained how to hack macs in enterprises through MDM "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Researchers demonstrated how a sophisticated threat actor can hack a brand new Apple Mac computer in enterprise environments through MDM.

A security duo composed by Jesse Endahl, CPO and CSO at macOS management firm Fleetsmith, and Max Blanger, staff engineer at Dropbox, demonstrated at the Black Hat security conference how a persistent attacker could compromise brand new Mac systems in enterprise environments on the first boot.

The experts leverage the Apple mobile device management protocol to retrieve the manifest and install a different application than the one chosen by the victim.

MDM allows administrators in enterprises to remotely manage macOS and iOS devices, it allows to easily install or remove applications, lock devices or securely erase them.

Every time a new device is added in an enterprise, it receives a Configuration Profile, an operation that can be performed automatically using the Device Enrollment Program (DEP).

macOS computers automatically contact the MDM server during the boot or after a factory reset procedure.

The DEP profile sent to the device is created by the MDM server and includes information related to software installation (i.e. servers URL, pinned certificates).

MDM Apple hack

By using the MDM command InstallApplication, administrators can install a specified application. The command uses a manifest URL that returns an XML file containing all the information needed to install the application.

The experts explained that it is possible to manipulate this manifest to install a specific application by carrying out a man-in-the-middle (MitM) attack.

The attack is not easy to conduct, anyway, a sophisticated nation-state actor or an ISP could carry out it.

The attack can exploit this technique to force the installation of a malicious application as soon as the macOS computers connect to the MDM server.

We disclosed the issue to Apple shortly after discovering it. Based on our feedback, a fix was quickly impleme...

Mobile phone footage shared widely on social media showed thousands of fans in Tehrans Azadi stadium chanting Death to the dictator during the fixture between the capitals Esteghlal and Tractor Sazi from the northwestern city of Tabriz.

Although the video could not be independently verified, it coincided with a decision by state broadcaster IRIB to mute the sound and avoid shots of the crowd.

Sleep posture can lead to facial distortion and wrinkles "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

sleep 2

By World News Report Bureau

Facial distortion and sleep-associated wrinkles may be caused by the number of times we change our position in sleep every night which decreases from 27 to 16 as we age.

Compression, tension, and shear forces on the face during sleep can cause facial distortion and lead to sleep wrinkles over time, when people sleep on their sides and stomach.

Sleep wrinkles form in response to distortion created when the face is pressed against any sleep surface. They tend to worsen over time due to repetition combined with thinning of the skin and decreased elasticity as we age, explains Dr. Goesel Anson, a member of American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and lead author, of a study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal.

The wrinkles are also influenced by the amount of time spent in various positions. While our initial sleep position is a conscious decision, we change positions throughout the night unconsciously. The number of shifts decreases from 27 to 16 per night as we age, with an average of about 20 position shifts.  The lateral (side) sleep position is the most common in studies averaging 65%, with the remaining 30% in the supine (back) position, and 5% in the prone (stomach) position. While some sleep wrinkle patterns can reinforce facial expression lines, most sleep wrinkles tend to be perpendicular to expression wrinkles. Most sleep wrinkles can be seen on the forehead, lips and cheeks. Unlike facial expression wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, wrinkles formed because of mechanical compression during sleep cant be eliminated using Botulinum Toxin.

Dr. Anson notes, One way to minimize wrinkles is to limit facial distortion during sleep. If you can stay on your back, thats ideal.  There are several specialty pillows available to help achieve that. Dermal fillers can temporarily improve wrinkles of any type however neurotoxins wont have much effect on these wrinkles since they are not caused by muscle contractions.

Patients are advised to use sunscreen, quit smoking, optimize nutrition, and maximize topical skin care....

Does China Hate Muslims? Sit-in by Muslims against Chinese govts plan to demolish mosque "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hundreds of ethnic Hui Muslims are staging a sit-in protest in Chinas western region of Ningxia against government plans to demolish a huge new mosque, amid tightening curbs on Islam to pull its practice in line with the Chinese mainstream.

Chinas government has banned religious education for young people in mosques.

China officially guarantees freedom of religion, but in recent years officials nervous about the possibility of radicalisation and violence have tightened controls in heavily Muslim areas.

The Weizhou grand mosque, with numerous domes and minarets in a Middle Eastern style, had not received proper permits before construction, officials in the town of Weizhou said in a notice on Aug 3.

The mosque would be forcibly demolished on Friday, they added in the notice, widely circulated among Chinese Muslims on social media.

Government reportedly says mosque wont be razed if its domes are replaced with pagodas

The order provoked anger among villagers, but talks between mosque representatives and officials have failed to reach agreement, as worshippers rejected a government plan to spare the mosque if its domes were replaced with pagodas more in keeping with Chinese style, one source in the area said.

Hundreds of villagers gathered at the mosque on Friday morning, and the towns mayor was expected to hold discussions, added the source, who requested anonymity.

If we sign, we are selling out our religious faith, a Weizhou mosque supporter said in a note on messaging app WeChat, urging villagers not to sign on to the mosque rebuilding plan.

What is a shelf cloud, you ask? Shoppers at an Illinois Walmart got a pretty up close and personal view of one on Aug. 7, and will probably remember its monstrosity forever. "The sky was insane looking earlier," wrote Illinois resident Maranda Benefield online. She stood at a parking lot in Anna, Illinois, unable to look away from the ominous cloud looming over the town. "The temperature dropped rapidly and the wind picked up and within minutes it blew right over us," Benefield said. "It" was a massive shelf cloud, resembling a sort of slow-motion tidal wave. The dark grey-blue cloud color contrasted starkly with a white puff of cloud spray, giving the appearance that the town would soon disappear into the clutches of the cloud.

Imran Khan to be sworn in as Pakistan PM on August 18 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Pakistans World Cup cricket hero Imran Khan will be sworn in as prime minister next week, his party said on Friday, announcing it has the numbers to form a coalition government in the lower house of parliament.

Imrans Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party said the entire squad that Imran captained to victory in the 1992 World Cup were invited to the ceremony, as well as Indian cricket greats Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Navjot Singh Sidhu.

In a historic moment, Imran Khan will take the oath (as prime minister) on August 18, Faisal Javed Khan, a PTI senator and Imrans close aide, said in televised comments in Islamabad.

Pakistans President Mamnoon Hussain has called a session of the new National Assembly, the lower house of parliament, starting August 13.

Earlier, Indias high commissioner in Pakistan Ajay Bisaria called on Imran and congratulated him on his victory.

Discussed the need to restart dialogue between Pak & India on all outstanding issues including Kashmir, Imrans spokeswoman Anila Khawaja told after the meeting.

The Indian high commission tweeted that Bisaria had gifted Imran a cricket bat autographed by the entire Indian national team.

The PTI leader brings charisma and international name recognition, but running the country will take considerable statecraft from his relatively inexperienced party.

He has already vowed to rebalance Islamabads relationship with the United States, months after United States President Donald Trump suspended security aid over Islamabads alleged failure to target militancy along its borders.

All flights out of Sea-Tac were grounded for some time, while incoming flights were diverted, and others were held at their departure points.

Some folks captured video of the plane, as apparently the hijacker wanted to practice some maneuvers, with the F15s closing in.

Elon Musks Tweet Draws Tesla Investor Lawsuit Over Share Price Swings Show Me The Money "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Elon Musk and Tesla Inc. were sued for manipulating share prices with the chief executive officers bombshell tweet that he was thinking about taking the company private and that funding was secure.

Musk lied about funding so he could push shares higher and ambush short sellers betting against the company, according to the shareholder complaint, which was filed Friday as a securities-fraud class action in federal court in San Francisco.

Musk set off a firestorm with the 53-character post Aug. 7 on Twitter: Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding Secured. The stock initially shot up 11 percent to almost $380. Then it fell back, losing about 7 percent over two days, as doubts mounted about the feasibility of the going-private idea and about Musks declaration that funding was already in place. Neither he nor anyone else has supplied evidence that it was.

The Twilight Of The War "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If we consider the war in Syria not as a singular event, but as the culmination of a world war which has persisted for a quarter of a century, we have to ask ourselves about the consequences of the imminent end of hostilities. Its completion marks the defeat of an ideology, that is to say globalisation and financial capitalism.

The Hunt for the Deadly White Helmets "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

TXT64562342

Refugees are beginning to return to Syria as the Damascus government clears out the last of the terrorists from all but Idlib Province. There, al Qaeda and the White Helmets are still active, holding a civilian population in terror, rounding up political prisoners, executing hundreds and planning more chemical attacks so that President Trump will protect their reign of terror.

This is the simple truth of it.

Why America Uses Terror

Few are aware to what extent the American military, the highest paid in the world, was decimated during the contrived War on Terror. Hundreds of thousands were maimed, more wasted away in endless deployments while tens of thousands killed themselves.

Pentagon funds are better spent on missiles, aircraft carriers and mercenaries while Washington political insiders rake off billions in graft.

War had to change, false flag terror, fake aid and refugee groups, fake news and standoff missile attacks while sanctions, blockades and assassinations took their toll. Key to Americas war, or perhaps more appropriately, the war America is fighting on behalf of globalist interests, is a group known as the White Helmets.

A Syrian child, living under ISIS terror, is dragged off the street. Bleach is poured on his head by, of all things, a fake first responder wearing a strange white bicycle helmet. His parents are terrified, other children kidnapped in a similar war are found dead, mutilated after being hacked and bashed, then dragged around repeatedly before video teams from Reuters and Aljazeera, fake atrocity victims to justify American military action against Syria.

The child is then dragged into a local hospital where a doctor, held at gunpoint, pretends to examine the terrified child while filming goes on.

Sometimes the filmed victims are paid, even filmed coming back to life, other times real Sarin gas is used, smuggled into Syria from Georgia and Ukraine, according to Serena Shim of Press TV, by mercenaries working for Google Idea Groups, a US State Department contractor.

Serena Shim was murdered on October 19, 2014.

In Praise of DuoLingo "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For a few months, Adolf has been teaching himself to speak Spanish.   (Well I AM retired.)

The vehicle for instruction is a website called Duolingo which teaches any of some thirty odd languages over the internet.  One of the good things about it is it's free.  Yes, you don't have to pay a  cent.

About fifteen years ago, I started to learn Spanish before travelling to Argentina for two weeks.  I used a programme called the Rosetta Stone which was on a CD.   The initial or basic phase was covered off on one CD which cost about $30.00 (from memory) but the next CD which took you through to some degree of fluency cost over $500 so I said 'to hell with it.'


Today, I'm quite a way advanced from that level but now I need to find someone who speaks Spanish so that I can go and chat over a coffee or a beer once a week.

Duolingo uses pictures, written and spoken word, with translations required both ways.  Best of all, if you think you have been wrongly marked on a question you can report that to the operators.  I have been impressed by the speed with which they have come back with 'we now accept your translation.'

Further, there are numerous fora where one can go and discuss linguistic points with other students, some of whom have been users for a very long time.   I see from Wiki there are over 2 million users and that Spanish is the most popular language.  BTW that's Central American Spanish, not Spanish Spanish but who cares?

I expect it will be a long long time before you can learn Te Reo on Duolingo.

James Carville famously quipped in the 1990s that he wanted to be reincarnated as a bond trader so he could intimidate everybody. Today hed probably want to return as a currency trader. With central banks holding down interest rates, currency traders are the new economic enforcers, as Fridays volatile markets showed.

The hottest flashpoint is the Turkish lira, which dropped more than 13% against the dollar amid a fight between President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and President Trump over American prisoners. The Russian ruble also hit a two-year low Friday on fears of more U.S. sanctions, and emerging markets in general are under pressure as global capital flows to the fast-growing U.S. economy. The Trump Treasury needs to be alert to the exchange-rate fallout.

More than any recent U.S. President, Mr. Trump is willing to use economic leverage for coercive diplomacy. Hes now targeting Turkey to gain the release of American Christian pastor Andrew Brunson, who is being held on dubious charges of aiding a coup attempt. Mr. Trump threatened sanctions several weeks ago, and last week he followed through against two members of Turkeys cabinet.

It's time for Labour to understand the Conservative Dilemma "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Boris Johnson's racist comments demonstrate the new strategy of the Conservative party. Labour need to understand what it is if they are to win

Boris Johnson. Image, Suzanne Plunkett, Chatham House, CC2.0.

So we know that Boris Johnson is prepared to use racist imagery. But is he also a fool?

To answer this question we have to go to the heart of the Conservative Dilemma. Because there is not simply an ideological war raging inside the Tory party. The fact that he is now reportedly under investigation for his comments about Muslim Women reveals clearly the underlying tensions in the Tory high command. Nor is it simply a question of personal ambition. Though there is plenty of that.

There is also a major debate about the electability of the Conservatives as a majority government. Lets remember that they have only gained a majority once in the last 23 years and that was a slender victory which they then threw away in 2017.

It is this which explains Boris Johnson's actions. An unprincipled man shackled to a lowering lust for power coldly calculating a route to office for the Conservatives which means jettisoning a significant part of their identity. Even if Theresa May succeeds in neutralising him, there are others on her backbenches (and some in office) who are more than willing to take up the mantle.

Camerons project was to attempt to build a centrist coalition based on a socially liberal Tory party with austerity economics. Although in 2015 he resorted to an election strategy based on a form of English Nationalism, pitting England against Scotland. In 2017, May abandoned the liberal part of this project altogether and offered austerity with 1950s Tory values.

But if we put aside for a moment the swings and roundabouts of the last two elections, it is possible to see a long term secular decline in the Tory vote. In 1992 Major persuaded over....

Tweets on account of retired professor Garth Stevenson attacked Indigenous people

by Grant LaFleche, Aug 8, 2018, The St. Catharines Standard

Brock University is distancing itself from a retired political science professor whose social media accounts shared racist and derogatory messages aimed at Indigenous people this week.

In a Friday statement the university said it was moving to strip retired professor Garth Stevenson formerly the head of Brocks political science department of his status as a professor emeritus after posts on Stevensons Facebook and Twitter accounts attacked Indigenous Canadians as snivelling, and ignorant pagans who were making Canada unfit for civilized people.

The posts expressed skepticism that Indigenous nations lived in Canada before the arrival of European settlers, that he would never speak to an Indigenous person again and told another Twitter user to die a painful death.

Turkey defiant as lira carnage signals economic meltdown "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Turkish lira crash is threatening to turn into a debt and liquidity crisis with no end in sight. Instead of acting, the Turkish leadership has warned of an economic war.
Trkei, Gumushane: Recep Tayyip Erdogan hlt eine Rede (picture-alliance/AA/M. Kaynak)
.

Turkey is in the throes of a full-blown currency crisis, with little sign the government has a plan to deal with one of the worst emerging market currency meltdowns in recent history.

The crisis threatens to throw the worlds 18th largest economy into a downward spiral of bankruptcy and trigger contagion in emerging markets and Europe.

The Turkish lira fell as much as 22 percent Friday, before paring losses back to 17 percent, extending a rout in the currency from earlier this week. It stood at 6.47 to the US dollar at 1900 GMT. The lira has lost nearly 40 percent of its value since the start of the year and nearly 30 percent since President Recep Tayyip Erdogan took over the office with new sweeping powers in June.

The currency carnage was pushed along on Friday by US President Donald Trumps administration, which announced the United States would increase tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum imports.

The tariffs themselves are minor and impact around $1 billion (880 million) in trade, but they weighed on market confidence in the vulnerable Turkish economy.

Their currency, the Turkish lira, slides rapidly downward against our very strong dollar, Trump wrote on Twitter. Our relations with Turkey are not good at this time.

It was truly a celebration of life at the Chapel of the Resurrection where a commendation service was held in honour of late Professor Nabofa in the morning, while a night of tributes on the life and times of late Papa as a lecturer in the school was held in the evening of the same day at the Faculty of Arts.
The two historic events which took place simultaneously on Monday 6th, 2018 gathered together great scholars (professors and senior lecturers of different disciplines in the faculty), students (undergraduates and postgraduates in the faculty), families (his widow, children and relations), friends and other numerous members of the university community.
In his sermon during the commendation service, the guest preacher, Rt. Rev. Dr. O. O. Obijole, admonished the children of late Professor Nabofa and those present in the service to emulate the quintessential legacies left behind by the learned academic.

Keyamo Raises Alarm Over Southern Christians Renew Effort To Brand Buhari As Muslim Jihadist "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Keyamo


LAGOS AUGUST 11TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The Director, Strategic Communications of President Muhammadu Buharis 2019 Presidential Campaign, Mr Festus Keyamo SAN, has alleged that there is a renewed effort to brand the president as a Northern/Muslim jihadist ahead of 2019.
Keyamo, who claimed in series of tweets on Friday that some Southern/Christian warriors are going about branding Buhari as a Jihadist, said only the gullible would believe another scam targeted at denting the presidents image ahead of the 2019 elections.
Keyemo said, It flies in the face of logic for anyone to suggest that a President who took decisive actions against two extremists Muslim groups (Boko Haram and the Shiites as some see them) is a Northern/Muslim jihadist. The politicians who told you so are laughing at you behind closed doors.
He said, By now, it must be obvious to those who campaigned against PMB in 2015 on the assumption that hes a Northern/Muslim jihadist that they were scammed.
But the greatest scam now is that these Southern/Christian warriors are now searching for a Northern/Muslim candidate for 2019.
The defection of Akpabio has dented the crude anti-North/ Muslim sentiments and lies by which the PDP has continued to hold the South/South and South/East to ransom since 2015.

Exit From The Matrix: The individual and the reality machine "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by Jon Rappoport

August 11, 2018

Technocratic mystics believe (or pretend to believe) that hooking up brains to a super-computer Cloud will bring on a miracle:

Humans will have instantaneous access to truth, facts, and bottom lines on any subject under the sun. The connection will be automatic.

Putting aside the vast neurological problems in achieving this fantastical state, the whole assumption is cockeyed, because censorship is actually the guiding principle.

We will tell you everything you need to know and exclude everything we decide you shouldnt think about.

In other words, the brain-Cloud hookup is major media to the nth degree. Piles of nonsense, deception, omission, lies, and official stories. Mind control.

No need for tech giants like Google and Facebook to de-list, hide, and warn about dangerous information. It will be erased.

If thats a miracle, its diabolical.

The brain-Cloud connection would constitute a Reality Machine in action, turning out reams of fabricated falsities, thereby building a landscape of perception which is a self-referential bubble.

You would see the shapes of a society that has been created for you.

Estimates of the approaching power of computers are based on their capacity to process information; nothing more. Its absurd to infer a computer that can process faster than the human brain will be possessed of greater truth. Is a plane whose payload is bombs more truthful than a Piper Cub?

No, something else is going on here. The preposterous utopia of brain-computer merge is a front and a cover for the agenda of turning humans into machines. In that regard, the brain would be the Holy Grail. Make it into a slave that produces a chosen reality of perception and thought

At that point, the individual would go the way of the dinosaur. Which is the whole point of technocracy.

As I keep saying, in any plan that seeks to encompass the whole human race, the individual is the wild card. He has the capacity to see through false realities; and more than that, he can, on his own, invent new unforeseen realities of startling dimensions. This power may be latent, but it is there.

Court Rules School Can Use Electric Shock as Punishment For Special Needs Students "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A judge ruled that the only school in America that uses electric shock to punish disabled students can continue the violent practice.

Bristol County, MA Family Court Judge Katherine Field denied a motion to stop the use of electric shock on disabled students, a form of punishment that has been controversial for years after news of the practice first reached the public in 2013 when video surfaced of an 18-year-old student receiving dozens of shocks for refusing to take off his jacket.

(The state) failed to demonstrate that there is now a professional consensus that the Level III aversive treatment used at JRC does not conform to the accepted standard of care for treating individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Judge Field wrote in her decision.

The facility in question is the Judge Rotenberg Educational Center (JRC), a special needs day and residential school in Canton, and it is the only school in the country that still uses electric shocks on its students. Records show that at least 58 students at the school have received shocks as of August 2017.

Despite the obvious ethical concerns with this practice, there is a cult-like support among the staff and even some parents for what they call aversive treatment.

A statement from the JRC Parents Group reads:

As parents whose children attend and received treatment at the Judge Rotenberg Educational Center (JRC) we welcome the courts ruling and repudiation of Massachusetts government officials at the Department of Developmental Service (DDS), who acted in bad faith and impermissibly made treatment decisions for JRC Clientsour children, just as officials within the agency had done in the 1980s and 1990s.

However, the students being subjected to this abuse obviously disagree, and there are several former staff members who are now speaking out against the use of electric shock.

Whistleblower Greg Miller, who taught at the facility from 2003-2006, told MassLive.com that he truly believed that this barbaric therapy was saving lives.

That was then, this is now, a continuing series "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This is part of a letter from Miss Howe to Miss Clarissa Harlowe, from Samuel Richardsons Clarissa [1748].

You and I have often retrospected the faces and minds of grown people; that is to say, have formed images for their present appearances, outside and in, (as far as the manners of the persons would justify us in the latter) what sort of figures they made when boys and girls. And Ill tell you the lights in which HICKMAN, SOLMES, and LOVELACE, our three heroes, have appeared to me, supposing them boys at school.

Solmes I have imagined to be a little sordid, pilfering rogue, who would purloin from every body, and beg every bodys bread and butter from him; while, as I have heard a reptile brag, he would in a winter-morning spit upon his thumbs, and spread his own with it, that he might keep it all to himself.

Hickman, a great overgrown, lank-haired, chubby boy, who would be hunched and punched by every body; and go home with his finger in his eye, and tell his mother.

While Lovelace I have supposed a curl-pated villain, full of fire, fancy, and mischief; an orchard-robber, a wall-climber, a horse-rider without saddle or bridle, neck or nothing: a sturdy rogue, in short, who would kick and cuff, and do no right, and take no wrong of any body; would get his head broke, then a plaster for it, or let it heal of itself; while he went on to do more mischief, and if not to get, to deserve, broken bones. And the same dispositions have grown up with them, and distinguish them as me, with no very material alteration.

Only that all men are monkeys more or less, or else that you and I should have such baboons as these to choose out of, is a mortifying thing, my dear.

I am enjoying this splendid book for the first time, and yes it is OK to read an abridged edition.

Warner Music Group Sells Entire Stake in Spotify "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

CEO Steve Cooper said that the sale resulted in $126 million credited to artist accounts on their June 30 royalty statements which are issued around the world in August and September. A rep confirmed that distributed labels are included in that amount, if their deal terms call for it.

In February 2016, we were the first major to announce a policy to share proceeds from equity in streaming services with artists, Cooper noted. However, Music Business Worldwide reports that unlike Sony Music, which is also sharing proceeds from the sale of its Spotify equity, Warner is not overlooking artists and labels unrecouped balances, which means that the proceeds could go not directly to the artist but to Warner as part of the recoupment of an artists advance and/or other label expenses. A rep for WMG did not immediately respond to Varietys requests for comment or confirmation on that matter.

Of the other three label groups, Sony Music sold approximately 50% of its shares for an estimated $750 million, the company revealed in a public filing in May, while independent label collective Merlin sold 100% of its shares for an amount estimated at upward of $125 million and immediately distributed the earnings to its members. Universal Music Group has not sold its shares, perhaps in anticipation of parent company Vivendis plan to sell 50% of that business unit.

UPDATED: In its earnings call on Tuesday morning, Warner Music Group announced that it has now sold its entire stake in Spotify, realizing $504 million. CEO Steve Cooper said that the sale resulted in $126 million credited to artist accounts on their June 30 royalty statements which are issued around the world in August and September.

"The agenda's of the elite are hidden. They are not something the American people would support. The elite fear their cover stories are so thin that if the truth can be shown on their agenda they will be discredited and lose their abilities to impose their agenda's. So they are closing down truthtellers in order to maintain explanations. Alex Jones is a threat to the elites control over the explanations. The message is, get on board or we will terminate you."
Paul Craig Roberts- Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, the "Father of Reaganomics", and former editor at the Wall Street Journal.

We've seen this internet purge coming for a while. Censorship and banning sites have been rampant for the last year and getting worse every day. Alex Jones has known for a while that he was being targeted but still must have been surprised at the number of companies that banned him over just a 12 hour period of time.

Our controllers knew they would have to deal with their internet problem sooner or later, the question was always how long would it be before the evil ones put the hammer down on internet free speech?

The mainstream media is totally corrupt, 99% Jewish owned, and the three things every network CEO has in common is that they all hate Trump, their shows are filled with Trump hating Jewish pundits and their news is rife with disinformation and lies.

Bluestone toilets in Frankston - Why this petition is important "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Why do I think the preservation of a working fifty-year old bluestone toilet block, in the face of its unnecessary replacement by a production-line designed one, so important that I can bring myself to promote a change.org petition to save it? Because somehow this blocky polylith has shown the capacity to unite us, where we can agree on little else. We live in a very atomised society, suburbanites here in Australia, victims of change and population engineering. People find it difficult to agree on complex politics, but the toilet block is an obvious example of something that does not need fixing, but that someone is fixing to fix. It should be too small for the council to fight us over it, but since the council intends to replace all bluestone blocks, stopping this would obviously frustrate a significant financial transaction. Someone is benefiting financially from this overkill, but not us.

Somehow the threatened removal of the sturdy bluestone toilets symbolizes important elements of our disempowerment. Some of these are our resentment at impermanence, our growing lack of local self-determination, lack of real consultation in favour of manufactured consent, industrial design over artisanship, synthetics over stone and trees, abuse of authority, planning facism, consumerism, delocalisation of decisions, spin replacing argument, and corporate beneficiaries taking over local employment and manufacture.

Our state-ruled local government has different values from many of the locals. These values are for the imposition of unnecessary new infrastructure of banal style and flimsy construction in place of something that anyone can see is durable and which has taken on the thermodynamic patina of age and locality a sign that it belongs. Somehow this toilet block seems the right place to make a stand. See the petition here or republished below.

The furore around free speech on campuses reached New Zealand this week after Massey University cancelled a speaking engagement by former National leader Don Brash. The move drew widespread condemnation from across the political spectrum and sparked debate over the limits of public expression. The firestorm culminated in a showdown between protesters and a jeering audience at a separate event at Auckland University later in the week. RNZs political reporter Craig McCulloch has a look back at how it all unfolded.

Leonora W.A. site geologically, environmentally better suited to waste dump than is Kimba S.A. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 these seismic surveys are many times more intensive and informative than what has been suggested for Kimba (and Hawker)
The Azark Project has on several previous instances fully documented all of the features and attributes of its site and the availability of all infrastructure and services and manpower which would fully support and cater for the construction and operation of both an above or below ground facility
 AZARK PROJECT LEONORA  Submission to Senate (no. 110) Attachment 3 National Radioactive Waste management Facility Site Charcterisation Project   Comparison of the site characterisation by AECOM of Kimba with the Azark Project site

Technical assessment information for the Azark Project at Leonora compared to the AECOM Characterisation Project for Kimba February 2018

Seismic Survey

No geological seismic surveys are necessary at the Azark site due to already completed comprehensive geological surveys by way of seismic lines across the site which among other things have established the depth of the geological structure as 4 km below surface

The seismic surveys undertaken in the Leonora region including the Azark site are relatively recent and very exhaustive using the latest state of the art technology

As a result these seismic surveys are many times more intensive and informative than what has been suggested for Kimba (and Hawker) under the site characterisation project by AECOM

The seismic surveys of the Leonora region were undertaken by the Geological Survey of Western Australia being part of that states Department of Minerals, Industry Regulation and Safety and which is internationally recognised as a leader and model in geological and geophysical surveys

This is demonstrated by the number of new and successful mining areas and mines discovered in Western Australia including locally the recent underground extensions at the Sons of Gwalia mine

These geological and geophysical seismic surveys established the depth and type of rocks at the Azark site as fresh hardrock granite going to a depth of 4 km and being very stable with no seismic events for some 2.6 billion years

Consequently this conrmed its superiority to any other areas for the hosting of the waste disposal facility

LiDAR and Geophysical Aerial Surveys

No aerial surveys are necessary to measure the height of and undulations in the ground as the general area comprising the Azark site is relatively at and approximately 40 m above any ood plains

It consists of some outcropping....

Line Following Robot Without The Lines "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Line-following robots are a great intro to robotics in general, since the materials and skills needed to build a good one arent too advanced. It turns out that line-following robots are more than just a learning tool, too. Theyre pretty useful in industry, but most of them dont follow visible marked lines. Some, like this inductive guided robot from [Randall] make use of wires to determine their paths.

Some of the benefits of inductive guidance over physical lines are that the wires can be hidden in floors, so if something like an automated forklift is using them at a warehouse there will be less trip hazard and less maintenance of the guides. They also support multiple paths, so no complicated track switching has to take place. [Randall]s robot is a small demonstration of a larger system he built as a technician for an autonomous guided vehicle system. His video goes into the details of how they work, more of their advantages and disadvantages, and a few other things.

While inductive guided robots have been used for decades now, theyre starting to be replaced by robots with local positioning systems and computer vision. Weve recently seen robots that are built to utilize these forms of navigation as well.

Dutch Anti-Migrant Politician Takes Own Life After She Was Raped by Muslim Gang "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A city councilor in The Hague and member of the anti-immigrant Freedom Party has taken her own life, hours after posting a video on Facebook in which she claimed she was gang-raped by Muslims as part of an intimidation campaign.

Willie Dille, 53, reportedly ended her own life on Wednesday, shortly after sharing a video on social media in which she claimed to have been kidnapped and raped by a Muslim gang over a year ago.

Dille served as an MP for the anti-immigrant Freedom Party from 2010-2012 before returning to her seat on The Hague city council.

The partys leader, Geert Wilders, is an outspoken critic of Islam. The suicide was confirmed by local Freedom Party leader Karen Gerbrands who said Dille could no longer bear what had happened to her and the reactions she had had.

Xi Jinping: Shaping Chinas Universities Propaganda, Socialism and Chinas Communist Ideology "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Repurpose academia for the promotion of ideology

Xi Jinping is one of the few Chinese leaders whose name appears alongside his own doctrine in Chinas constitution. But supremacy in the legislative and political spheres is only the beginning of Xis influence. His government is poised to shape many areas of society. Giant billboards, once the domain of businesses vying for the attention of a spirited middle class, are now commonly found propagating Xis slogans. They are a ubiquitous symbol of the growing entrenchment of the state in Chinese daily life.

Xi is now determined to bring Chinas academic establishment under the ideological control of his government. In 2016, Xi vowed to turn university campuses into strongholds of the Partys leadership, and he has made progress on that promise. The Xi government is also leveraging the ivory tower as a tool for developing sophisticated propaganda techniques with which to indoctrinate the public.

Kim Jong Un with Xi Jinping

On October 25, 2017, the day following the congressional resolution to enshrine Xi Jinping Thought into Chinas constitution, Renmin University established the first official research center for Xi Thought under the guidance of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). By early 2018, the Central Committee of the CCP had officially recognized 10 research centers for the study of Xi Jinping Thought.  According to a statement from Xinhua News Agency, the purpose of these centers is to deepen the research and interpretation of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for in the New Era.

Each research center on Xi Thought has an area of specialization.  For example, the center at Peking University specializes in connecting Marxist doctrine with Xi Thought and develops relevant propaganda.

Hollywood Director James Gunn Publicly Posted Photos of Himself at a Pedophilia-Themed To Catch a Predator Party "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It seems that disgraced Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn doesnt just like to joke about pedophilia he also attends pedophilia themed parties.

Featured on his website were photos of himself attending a To Catch a Predator themed party based on the show which busted pedophiles who targeted children online.

The images feature the former Disney director dressed up as a priest surrounded by women dressed like young children.

Gunn was fired by Disney after many disturbing jokes about pedophilia were uncovered on his Twitter account. The company is now reportedly in negotiations with him, and may give him his job back, after actors from the GOTG franchise spoke out in his defense.

The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studios values, and we have severed our business relationship with him, Alan Horn, chairman of  Walt Disney Studios, said in a statement at the time the tweets were uncovered.

According to reports that came out hours before these new photos surfaced, Marvel is also lobbying Disney to take Gunn back.

Tweets included jokes such as Eagle Snatches Kid is what I call it when I get lucky and other obscene comments about children.

The bumpy road to think tank transparency in Australia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

During the week I received a response to my enquiry to the ATO requesting a list of Approved Research Institutes (some of which are think tanks like the IPA) however, as you will see from the response at the foot of this post, the problem of think tank transparency in Australia has a lot of hurdles to overcome before we will be in a position to understand who is funding them.

Australian tax law prevents the disclosure of organisations with Deductible Gift Recipient status which would presumably affect transparency regarding Approved Research Institutes that have DGR status. Im not sure why I was not provided with a list of ARIs that do not have DGR unless every ARI in Australia also has DGR, thus preventing disclosure. Given the secrecy provisions, who knows? See the thread below for a discussion of the issues surrounding think tank transparency.

International debate leans toward expecting greater transparency from think tanks. Transparify recently released its annual report, rating think tank transparency around the globe, announcing that overall, funding transparency is improving.

Winter Washing of Fruit Trees "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Although it may look like there is not much happening with your fruit trees over winter, the microscopic world of fungi is making plans, strategically laying in wait in the cracks and crevices of your trees until the weather warms up. The most prevalent fungus is Peach Leaf Curl, causing the disfigurement of leaves, and sometimes the fruit, on your peach, nectarine, apricots and even almonds. However there are many other fungal problems that may occur and winter spraying is a good way to help reduce the incidence of fungal problems.

Peach Leaf Curl will cause the lovely new growth on your trees to appear blistered and puckered and in severe cases it can cause pimples on fruit and premature fruit drop. In the cool moist weather of early spring the fungus will multiply and if the cycle is not broken your trees will continue to be infested year after year.

Other fungal diseases that may be dormant on stone fruit include Shot Hole, Freckle Spot, Rust and Powdery Mildew.
There are several things you can do to minimise the spread of Peach Leaf Curl and other fungal diseases in the garden.
Practise good garden hygiene. Pick up fallen leaves from the ground and avoid putting them in your compost. Remove damaged or rotten fruit and keep the tree pruned to an open vase shape to increase air circulation.

Plant your tree into well prepared soil in the right position with plenty of sun and good air circulation. Keep up a regular fertilising and watering schedule.

Spray your trees during winter with a low impact fungicide. Winter-washing helps to kill off any spores and can greatly reduce the incidence of Peach Leaf Curl and other fungal problems.

Winter Washing

The best spray to use is either copper oxychloride or lime sulphur sprayed in alternate years. The first spray should be in late autumn at leaf fall just before the tree enters its dormancy. Spray again at bud swell or bud burst in late winter or early spring. Once the leaves have opened out it is too late to spray for Peach Leaf Curl and many other fungal diseases. Safe and effective spraying can only be done at the end of the following summer.

When spraying fruit trees, be aware of the potential impact that spray drift may have on surrounding vegetation, soil micro-organisms, pets and humans. Spraying is usually done to the point of run-off, where the spray liquid has completely covered the tree surface and runs off on to the ground. It may be prudent to lay spra...

Using NPRs Planet Money Podcast in Principles of Macroeconomics "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From William J. Luther:

Unfamiliar with aggregate concepts like gross domestic product and inflation, many introductory students struggle to understand the big ideas in macroeconomics. Macroeconomic educators typically respond with boring lectures aimed at bringing students up to speed; or, by jumping to the interesting topics their students are not yet prepared to consider. In an effort to combat this problem, I have incorporated NPRs Planet Money podcast into my Principles of Macroeconomics course. I describe the podcast and provide a list of episodes others might find useful. In my experience, the Planet Money podcast is well received. Students enjoy listening to the assigned episodes. They report that it made them more interested in the principles course, helped them understand the relevance of macroeconomics, and increased their understanding of many macroeconomic issues. Most students also feel more comfortable discussing macroeconomic issues having listened to the podcast. And nearly half of those students surveyed say they will continue listening to the podcast after the course ends.

Erdogan reasons from a price change "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

[I wrote this a few weeks ago, and then decided not to post it.  After todays news I changed my mind.]

Turkish President Erdogan claims that the way to lower inflation is to have the central bank hold down interest rates.  Hows that theory working out?

Turkeys central bank sharply lifted its annual inflation forecast on Tuesday to 13.4 per cent just a week after keeping interest rates on hold as it grapples with a weakening currency.

The move to raise the outlook from a previous forecast of 8.4 per cent in April comes amid concerns by investors about the independence of the central bank, which has come under pressure from Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish president, who is a self-declared enemy of high rates.

Murat Cetinkaya, the central bank governor, pushed back against claims that political interference is limiting his ability to tackle soaring inflation. Consumer price inflation hit 15.4 per cent in June a figure three times higher the official 5 per cent target.

NeoFisherians correctly point out that a monetary policy that produces a sustained period of low inflation will be associated with low nominal interest rates.  But cutting the central bank policy rate does not cause inflation to fall, just the opposite.

As an analogy, ownership of a Ferrari is strongly correlated with being wealthy.  However purchasing a Ferrari does not cause one to be wealthier, just the opposite.

PS.  In fairness, the Turkish central bank did recently increase rates sharply.  But it was too late; years of holding rates at 8% let the inflation genie out of the bottle.  Now its playing catchup.

"Live Webcams Give Unique View Of Alaskan Bears Fishing For Salmon"
by Lee Rannals

"New webcams have been set up for the Internet publics viewing, and this time they are capturing the iconic scene of bears snatching their lunch out of a river. Explore.org set up live HD video streams of giant brown bears in Alaska catching salmon in Katmai National Park. Anyone with an Internet connection can now watch these bears catching their dinner by clicking the links above.

The Brooks Falls cam is located on the banks of a five foot high waterfall, where as many as thirty bears have been spotted at a time catching salmon trying to make their way upstream to spawn. Another camera is located at the mouth of Brooks River and the entrance of Naknek Lake, where nearly 100 bears in the area utilize the lower river to feast on salmon and raise their young before hibernation.

Explore.org said that in the next few days, it will be unleashing additional cameras in the area, one of which will feature an area showing off a part of the river with safe water currents and levels where mothers and their cubs come to take advantage of the salmon-rich area. A Dumpling Mountain camera is also being set up to provide a birds eye view of the area, in addition to 10,000 Smokes, which is the site of the largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century.

Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

I highly recommend that those who are just encountering this information read our book, "You Know Something Is Wrong When.....An American Affidavit of Probable Cause" as a starting place. It gives the overall basics in an easy-to-read illustrated format and provides very handy information in the Appendix. This book gives references and citations as it goes through its narrative. It is available on Amazon.com as are all the other books.

If you are a more hard-charging "Just the Facts Ma'am" executive type, the same basic information is covered in a sound-bite format in our book "America: Some Assembly Required". If you need to get up to speed fast and can take in information in 30-second or less increments and build the picture as you go, this book will summarize the situation and the history for you in about an hour and a half. This book doesn't give a references and citations that have been provided elsewhere so includes only one or two new citations covering additional topics.

Behind, before, and underlying these two books is the first book, "Disclosure 101", which is the history of how I got involved, how I addressed the problem, and ultimately where it all led. This book includes publication of basic documents I or others issued in pursuit of remedy and gives eleven pages of underlying citations and references.

President Trump has, since the publication of these books, sicced teams of lawyers on the information and combed the National Archives. As a result, it has all been newly confirmed. At the highest levels of international government there has never been any disagreement about the facts, there has only been a divide between those who knew and those who didn't know.

Are Cryptocurrencies A Fictional Dream? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

COMMENT: Dear Mr. Armstrong; I suppose we have to learn the hard way. Our electronic currency system crashed here in Zimbabwe. Many people were using it because of the old hyperinflation. The argument that private money would be better than government made a lot of sense here given the history. Most people were using US dollars and just about all other currencies from surrounding countries. We lived exactly the experience you have described when the confidence in government collapses. Yet now, many are wondering if this cryptocurrency is just another way to undermine the economy.

JKW

REPLY: I believe the vast majority of the world has never looked at exactly what was taking place in Zimbabwe. The new mobile money emerged as the leading transaction platform in Zimbabwe because of the previous hyperinflation. However, its weaknesses came into focus after the dominant EcoCash network in Zimbabwe collapsed for two days. Consumer businesses were left floundering in an already difficult economy. Many people were just locked out of the economy with no alternative.

EcoCash was competing against smaller platforms run by state-controlled telcos NetOne and Telecel Zimbabwe. The people preferred a privately run system the to the government. EcoCash was conducting business with more than eight million registered. It was also being used by expat Zimbabweans in South Africa and Botswana. This has obviously exposed the weakness of the electronic currency market. Take out the power grid and the economy will collapse overnight.

The Minsky Moment "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A number of people have asked if I ever looked at Hyman Minskys concepts in forecasting the economy. Minskys Financial Instability Hypothesis failed not because of the fact that he attempted to interject cycles and even listened to Schumpeter, the problem was that he was an economist and not a trader. His own attempts to devise a mathematical model of his hypothesis were unsuccessful. The first of Minskys two papers in the AER set out a mathematical model of a financially driven trade cycle developed during his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1954 but he never attempted to develop the model further.

There have been many people who have claimed they used his model and were able to forecast the 2007 crash. I know many traders around the world in a professional capacity and I do not know ANYONE who did not see the crash coming. Being able to say this is a bubble and it will end badly was the topic of the movie The Big Short. Being able to see such a bubble is by no means unusual for many who are seasoned. I know of no profession who bought into the whole Bitcoin nonsense of how it would replace the dollar, end central banks, and start a new age all within a matter of months. The professionals just laughed because they know such a change takes decades not months.

Minskys observations of the Great Depression are seriously flawed. The primary problem was that they were focused domestically. They did not take into consideration the entire world economy. His hypothesis of financial instability argued that a financial crisis is endemic in capitalism because periods of economic prosperity encouraged borrowers and lenders to be progressively reckless. This excess optimism creates financial bubbles and then later busts. Therefore, capitalism is pr...

Local cast shares compelling story of legendary Cherokee Nancy Ward

TAHLEQUAH, Okla.  The award-winning short film Nanyehi will be presented at the 2018 Tribal Film Festival hosted on Aug. 25 in the Webb Auditorium at Northeastern State University.

The screening begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a Q&A session with producers and cast, including Becky Hobbs, Winnie Guess Perdue, Travis Fite and David Barnoski.

We are honored to have the opportunity to share this film with the Tahlequah community in the capital of our beloved Cherokee Nation, said Becky Hobbs, Nanyehi co-writer and direct descendant of Nancy Ward. We made this story come to life in Tahlequah, and it is a true joy to bring it back home to share with our families, friends and fellow Cherokee.

The film shares the story of Nancy Ward, legendary Cherokee warrior turned peacemaker, and her role in the fight to preserve tribal land in the 18th century.  The struggle between peace and war is skillfully depicted by a local cast of 44 from northeast Oklahoma, the vast majority being Cherokee Nation citizens.

We are humbled and grateful for the amount of support we have had on this project, said David Webb, co-producer of the film. The passion this incredible story generates to audiences everywhere has fueled its success, but we would not be where we are today without the gracious support weve received from the Cherokee Nation and the Tahlequah community. We hope everyone will join us as we celebrate the life and legacy of Nancy Ward.

The screening is open to the public and free to attend. Guests are asked to RSVP by calling 918-219-4720 or by visiting the festivals Facebook page at...

Punishing Iran Will Cost a Fortune "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President Trump keeps vowing to create more jobs in America.  But his actions often speak differently.  The most egregious example was Trumps cancellation of the multi-national Iran nuclear treaty that had been welcomed by the world as a major step to Mideast denuclearization.

In abrogating the international treaty signed by the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China, the US humiliated its allies and rivals who were strongly in favor of the accord.  Iran had already handed 97% of its enriched uranium to Russia, shut down reactors and centrifuges, and allowed UN inspectors to run all over its nuclear facilities when Trump tore up the deal that had been under negotiation since 2015.

Iran has been under a harsh US-led trade embargo since its 1979 revolution that was designed to cripple its economy and military and drive the people to rebel against their government.  Washington used the same tactics without success against Saddam Husseins Iraq and Fidel Castros Cuba.

So intense is the Trump administrations hatred for Islamic Iran that it decided to scrap the multinational nuclear deal that would have meant opening Iran to western commerce and a bonanza for US and European companies.  The key element of the deal was to have been the sale of some 210 commercial jet airliners to Iran by the US and the European Union, a deal worth some $40-50 billion, not counting future sales of spare parts.

The US embargo of Iran since 1979 has made it unable to modernize its commercial airline fleet.  Iran was denied modern aircraft, spare parts, engines and instruments, leaving it with decaying aircraft from the 1970s.

The grim result of the US-imposed embargo has been 17 crashes of Iranian civilian aircraft with 1500 deaths.

Most of Irans commercial aircraft a grab bag of old, mostly 25-year old Boeing, Airbus, Chinese and Soviet aircraft are flying coffins.  Irans maintenance, training and air traffic control are substandard.  Flying over and around Irans lofty mountains is a challenge for the best of pilots, even for a handful of newer ATR turboprop aircraft.

Washingtons denial to Iran of Boeing Aircraft (and Airbus planes because they contain US-made parts), means the loss of tens of thousands of highly-paid jobs in the US and Europe.  Israels prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, claims he talked Trump into canceling the Iran nuclear deal and the Boeing orders.

Its hard to validate Netanyahus claim but it is clear that Americas ever more powerful Israel lobby and its ally fundamentalist Christian Zionists played a key role in thwarting the Iran nuclear deal and sale of commercial aircraft.

We dont yet know the full cost of lost American jobs and business to help keep Iran isolated.  But one could argue that part of the $2...

Did the Dental Profession Just Admit "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

So the makers of non-fluoride toothpaste have so riled the dental profession that it was forced to make a statement.  The news headline said: Toothpaste WITHOUT fluoride: Dentists urge people to stop ridiculous trend as they warn brushing alone is note enough.

Uh, say again?  Were wasting our time brushing our teeth with non-fluoride toothpaste if we want to prevent cavities?  (Toothbrushing has some obvious effect in reducing plaque and maybe even restoring whiteness.)

So before you stop brushing your teeth altogether the precise wording of a recent study that prompted this news headline is reprinted verbatim below.  Here it is (from the journal Gerodontology:

Personal oral hygiene interventions failed to influence the incidence of dental caries despite meticulous deplaquing of teeth. Personal oral hygiene in the absence of fluorides has failed to show a benefit in terms of reducing the incidence of dental caries.

The same goes for flossing.  Reviewers found children who underwent flossing by a professional hygienist every weekday reduced their risk for cavities by 40% but those who flossed at home experienced no reductionFlossing + toothbrushing only produces a small reduction in dental plaque.

Sunlight better than water fluoridation?

Severe dental caries (cavities) in preschool children are more related to low blood levels of vitamin D rather than lack of use of fluoride toothpaste or fluoridated drinking water.  (Fluoride helps harden dental enamel and thus makes teeth resistant to acid-forming bacteria that induce cavities.)

One study reveals children with vitamin D blood levels below 50 nanomole per blood sample are at greater risk for dental decay.  It is not surprising to learn vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy is associated with a reduction in dental decay in infants.

Even in the elderly, one study revealed 13% of individuals who took vitamin D supplements experienced tooth loss compared to 27% of non-suppl...

Lira Collapse To Jump the Mediterranean "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Turkish Lira crisis is fundamentally different than the Russian Ruble crisis of 2014/15.  This one has contagion risk.

Back then no one was worried about the fall of the ruble having spillover effect.  If Sberbank failed, it wouldnt jump to Europe.  Then again, there was little worry about that since the Russians had more than enough in reserves to cover the debts.

With Turkey, however, there is a real worry about this jumping into Europe. From Zerohedge:

Fridays fall came after the Financial Times reported that supervisors at the European Central Bank are concerned about exposure of some of Europes biggest lenders to Turkey, including chiefly BBVA, UniCredit and BNP Paribas. The FT reported that along with the currencys decline, the ECBs Single Supervisory Mechanism has begun to look more closely at European lenders links with Turkey. The moves also came after the US showed no signs of lifting crippling sanctions despite the visit of a Turkish delegation to the US capital.

According to the FT, the ECB is concerned about the risk that Turkish borrowers might not be hedged against the liras weakness and begin to default on foreign currency loans, which make up about 40% of the Turkish banking sectors assets.

And while it does not yet view the situation as critical, it sees Spains BBVA, Italys UniCredit and Frances BNP Paribas, which all have significant operations in Turkey, as particularly exposed, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Note the banks here.  Italian zombie-bank UniCredit.  Spains BBVa and Frances major zombie-bank BNP Paribas.   You can almost smell the desperation in the Financial Times reporting on this.

Everyone thought Turkey would not take their feud with the U.S. this far, that U.S. hybrid war belligerence would win the day before the point of contagion.

But, thats the problem with most market analysts, they analyze things in terms of the best trade of the moment, not the best trade for the next fifty years.

They only analyze in terms of what they would do to protect their trade, not what a country would do to protect its future.

Turkey needs to become independent of the U.S. and the depredations of dollar diplomacy.  Erdogan will use this extreme weakness in the lira and the bond markets to separate those companies loyal to Turkey and those loyal to the U.S.

And the former will be bailed out and the latter left to twist in the wind...

The Satanic Nature of the Atomic Bombings "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ahab is forever Ahab, man.  This whole acts immutably decreed.  Twas rehearsed by thee and me billion years before this ocean rolled.  Fool!  I am the Fates lieutenant; I act under orders.

Herman Melville, Moby Dick

The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid dens of crime that Dickens loved to paintBut it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice.

C. S. Lewis, authors preface, 1962, The Screwtape Letters

American history can only accurately be described as the story of demonic possession, however you choose to understand that phrase.  Maybe radical evil will suffice.  But right from the start the American colonizers were involved in massive killing because they considered themselves divinely blessed and guided, a chosen people whose mission would come to be called manifest destiny.  Nothing stood in the way of this divine calling, which involved the need to enslave and kill millions and millions of innocent people that continues down to today.  Others have always been expendable since they have stood in the way of the imperial march ordained by the American god. This includes all the wars waged based on lies and false flag operations. It is not a secret, although most Americans, if they are aware of it, prefer to see it as a series of aberrations carried out by bad apples.  Or something from the past.

Our best writers and prophets have told us the truth: Thoreau, Twain, William James, MLK, Fr. Daniel Berrigan, et al.: we are a nation of killers of the innocent.  We are conscienceless.  We are brutal.  We are in the grip of evil forces.

The English writer D. H. Lawrence said it perfectly in 1923, The American soul is hard, isolate, stoic and a killer.  It has never yet melted.  It still hasnt.

When on August 6 and 9, 1945 the United States killed 200-300 thousand innocent Japanese civilians with atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they did so intentionally.  It was an act of sinister state terrorism, unprecedented by the nature of the weapons but not by the slaughter. The American terror bombings of Japanese cities that preceded the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki led by the infamous Major General Curtis LeMay were also intentionally ai...

Secessionist Sentiment Remains a Plurality "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Amidst the growing intensity and louder calls for independence around the globe, John Zogby Strategies once again conducted a nationwide poll on the topic over the July 4thholiday.  We asked 1,001 likely voters the following question:

Which of the following is closer to your view?

Statement A: If a majority of residents within a given state prefer to have the final say over their destiny without the control of Washington D.C., then let them have it it is their right.

Statement B: If residents within a given state were to take such a drastic measure and secede from the United States, the Federal Government would be justified sending in the military to prevent secession from taking place.

Results still reveal nearly 4 in 10 (39%) agree with statement A and 32% agree with statement B.In other words, a plurality of Americans agree with a states right to make a clean break from the Federal Government and go their own way while just shy of one-third (32%) would support a military intervention to suppress a states attempt to break away, and 29% are still not sure.

About one year ago we asked the very same question over the 2017 Labor-Day weekend to 800 likely voters in a nationwide survey. Even then, 39% of respondents chose statement A.

Below are charts that compare 2017 and 2018 results from key demographics.

Why Did the US Invade Iraq? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

QUESTION: I recently watched the movie Shock & Awe on the Iraq War. It really showed how the pretend free press are just stenographers for the government and that your President Trump is absolutely correct about fake news. The movie ended with the New York Times apologizing for its fake reporting. Previously you said you knew William Kristol who is mentioned in the film as one of the people behind the theory to take over Iraq. Have you seen the film? Do you agree with the story that is told?

HR, Netherlands

ANSWER: Yes. Anyone who has NOT seen the film, I STRONGLY advise that you take the time to watch it. Then you will start to understand how the Deep State and how the mainstream press is interlinked. Yes, I know Bill Kristol. He even spoke at one of our conferences back in the early nineties. I do not think he was so much a neocon back then. I would by no means say we were friends just knew each other from the political circles in Washington.

Kristol taught political philosophy and U.S. politics at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvards Kennedy School of Government. He began to work for the government in 1985. He became Chief of Staff to the Vice President under Dan Quayle in the George H. W. Bush administration in the White House.

In 2003, Kristol and Lawrence F. Kaplan wrote The War Over Iraq: Americas Mission and Saddams Tyranny (ISBN ), in which they provided support and justifications for war in Iraq. They argued that war was necessary to create a democracy in the Middle East that they claimed would be the beginning of a new era in American foreign policy. Their neocon ideas of trying to create a democracy in Iraq was simply insane and it completely failed. There were 4,424 total deaths of American soldiers and 31,952 wounded in action for their political ideas. It is always to send others into battle for your theories.

This film demonstrates how they lied about absolutely everything to create that war. They bypassed intelligence and cherry-picked reports to pretend that there were weapons of mass destruction. This film shows how corrupt the entire system is and how facts and the press are shaped to justify whatever the government desires. They have conspired to accomplish the same similar goals in Syria.

Why Do They All Look the Same? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Government homogenizes everything it touches. It makes things uniform, drains the color, randomness and difference out of life.

Government is the reason why cars increasingly look . . . homogenized. The basic shape is becoming uniform the inevitable end result of having to comply with government edicts specifying that a car must successfully withstand being hit from the side, behind and at various angles; this has imposed a design template on all cars, regardless of brand or model. It is why all brands and models increasingly look the same except for increasingly bizarre grille and headlight shapes which are a kind of desperate last salvo of expression still possible only because the government hasnt yet got around to decreeing how grilles and headlights should be shaped.

Which will probably happen when it occurs to a government bureaucrat that certain grille shapes threaten to poke pedestrians and we cant have that.

The same homogeneity is found inside new cars in all cars made since the late 90s, when the government decreed that all cars must have air bags stuffed into their steering wheels. It is why all steering wheels now look the same. Before the government decreed that all new cars must have air bags, steering wheel designs varied often wildly. They were the centerpiece of interior design and even defined the car.

Today, they are just steering wheels.

The same blob in the center where the air bag is. The different shapes of the past are no longer feasible and so there is one shape generic, homogenous. With a different badge in the center.

It is no wonder that most kids no longer car about cars. It is like trying to summon interest in milk jugs.

Safety itself was once a different selling point rather than the same selling point, as it has become today. Some cars sold on the basis of other attributes, such as their flamboyant styling   or because they offered features which appealed to people but which have since been outlawed by regulatory fatwa such as swiveling or rear (or sideways) facing seats or roofs with removable glass panels (T-tops).

Those pre-fatwa cars werent unsafe, either. The presence or absence of air bags or swivel seats or T-tops does not increase or decrease the odds of a crash happening.

A 1970 VW Beetle is perfectly safe to drive.

What is meant by safety in the regulatory fatwa sense is a vehicles ability to withstand impact forces if there is a crash. It is a distinction with an important difference. If no crash happens,  a 1970 Beetle is just as safe to drive as a 2018 Beetle only the old Beetle has more character because it is different. The new Beetle merely looks vaguely like the old one but underneath its skin, its not much different from...

What Conservative Canon? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In 2012, I came across a scholarly article in a journal on rhetoric on The Conservative Canon and Its Uses.  The author, Michael J. Lee, undertook to explain why the American conservative movement had put together a secular canon featuring its leading thinkers.  According to Lee, this selection of books and seminal authors has been designed to forge a spiritual bond among groups that otherwise have exhibited sharp disagreement.  Conventional libertarians, social traditionalists, and anarcho-capitalists, to name just three such groups, have been able to cooperate on common purposes because a canon has been created that embraces figures from all of these traditions.  Certain rhetorical phrases, moreover, have been repeatedly identified with this shared heritage, including references to permanent things and values.

This canon has been periodically updated, and with the ascendancy of the neoconservatives and Straussians in the 1980s, certain golden oldies, like the works of Russell Kirk and the Southern Agrarians, lost their place in the conservative canon.  This did not come about without protest, and I recall receiving angry notes from members of the Old Right complaining about how their favorites in the canon had been replaced by such relative newcomers as Allan Bloom, Harry Jaffa, and Irving Kristol.  In 2001, Jonah Goldberg wrote a commentary in National Review in response to his devotees who asked him to name the authors whom he would place in the conservative canon.  Goldberg proposed figures he identified with National Review.  He then almost sheepishly explained that he should probably add to his list Blooms Closing of the American Mind but couldnt quite make it through Blooms exposition of the dangers of the Nietzscheanization of the Left.  As a scholar of German intellectual history, I would note that Jonah was missing very little.

The American conservative movement in all its permutations has steadily pushed the idea of a secular canon.  I myself used to compose celebratory statements for the old canon, and I constructed such statements for Modern Age in the 1970s and 1980s at the request of the editor, George Panichas.  In 1987, I commented favorably on a study by then-North Carolina senator John P.  East. In my remarks on Easts The American Conservative Movement: The Philosophical Founders, I dutifully praised some of those figures who supposedly prepared the way for a movement that was already rupturing in the 1980s.  The figures whom I extolled back then as R...

Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It was one of those mistakes which often happen when you involve a government in your affairs but it wasnt Mr. Assange, it was the two women who managed to bed him who made that mistake

Ms. Ardin accompanied Ms. Wilen to the police station on August 20 [2010], playing a supporting role. Neither of them intended to press any criminal charges against Mr. Assange. They wanted to compel him to take an HIV test. Once they were at the police station and told their stories, the female police commissioner informed them that this all fell within rape law, and soon thereafter-that Mr. Assange was going to be arrested. Ms. Ardin and Ms. Wilen were upset when they heard this. Julian Assanges Penetration Agenda: Was it Rape in Stockholm? | Observer

As things played out however, Mr. Assange has never been charged with anything in Sweden and only breaching bail in the U.K. Thats right, Sweden didnt file charges and in May, 2017, dropped the investigation which led to Assange needing bail in the first place.

None the less, to make sure he doesnt leave the country, the U.K. government has posted cops 24/7 outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London where Mr. Assange was granted asylum six years ago.

Maybe youre thinking, Wow, asylum from a bail charge? Breaching bail must be REALLY serious in the U.K.!

Not so much. Even in these extremely unusual and unprecedented circumstances, the absolute best the UK legal machinery could possibly hope for from Mr. Assange is a five-thousand-pound fine and three months in the pokey. If the U.K. plays by its own rules.

In fact, this extremely unusual and unprecedented situation is so unusual and unprecedented that, incredibly, the United Nations got involved in what should be an insignificant bail case.

After looking into it however, the UN declared on Feb. 5, 2016, that the U.K. was unlawfully holding Mr. Assange under unlawful arbitrary detention, directed the UK machinery to release him immediately, and Sweden and U.K. to pay him compensation.

The U.K. refused to play by the rules.

In addition to asylum, Ecuador even granted Mr. Assange citizenship and diplomatic status. This should have freed him from Brit jurisdiction and allowed him to travel out of the U.K. under diplomatic immunity. Incredibly, however, the Brits again refuse to play by the ru...

Is There Enough of America Left "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As many readers of this website have noticed, the United States has lost its character and become a dysfunctional society. In place of a largely homogeneous population once united in veneration of the Constitution, there exists today massive diversity which Identity Politics has used to disunite the population into separate interest groups.

No clause or article of the Constitution, nor the Bill of Rights, is safe. The George W. Bush and Obama regimes destroyed two of the most important protections of civil libertyhabeas corpus and due process. Bush declared indefinite imprisonment on suspicion alone without evidence or trial. Obama declared execution of US citizens on accusation alone without due process. The Justice (sic) Department wrote legal memos justifying torture, thus destroying the constitutional protection against self-incrimination. One of the authors of the memos is now a professor of law at UC Berkeley. The other is now a federal judge, indications that respect for the Constitution and enforcement of US and international laws against torture is fading in law schools and the federal judiciary.

A third important protection of civil libertyfreedom of speech which is necessary for the discovery of truth and to serve justiceis being destroyed. Apple, Google/Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, university speech codes, legislation against protesting Israels atrocities against Palestinians, and the presstitute media that has been turned into a propaganda organ in behalf of vested interests are all actively involved in protecting lies against truth.

Glenn Greenwald reported that the single greatest threat to free speech in the West  and in the U.S. is the coordinated, growing campaign to outlaw and punish those who advocate for, or participate in, activism to end the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

The Second Amendment, which was placed in the Constitution as a defense against oppression by government, is under attack by well financed organizations in service to the police state with the intention of disarming the population. Many attentive Americans are convinced that mass shootings are staged or pretended in order to create public support for repealing the Second Amendment. Clearly the amount of effort expended against the Second Amendment is disproportional to the number of shooting deaths as compared to other causes of deaths. Why this one cause of deaths has so many well financed and politically active organizations compared to other causes of deaths is a question that is studiously avoided. We see far more opposition to the Second Amendment than we see against Washingtons destruction in whole or part of seven countries during the past two decades, resulting in the death, maiming, widowing, or...

Alex Jones Purge: US Tech Giants Meddle "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

An all-out battle is raging against alternative views in the country that has positioned itself as the champion of the freedom of speech despite the fact that 90% of its media are controlled by just 6 companies. For comparison, in 1983, 90% of US media were controlled by 50 companies. Naturally, the trend negatively affects press freedom. According to the 2018 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders or RSF, the US dropped two positions compared to 2017, sliding to No. 45 overall. The role of competition has diminished while bias has become a norm. According to the 2017 Gallup/Knight Foundation Survey on Trust, Media and Democracy report, only 44 percent Americans say they can identify a news source that they believe reports the news objectively.

There have been many examples of freedom of speech trampled on in the United States. True, the First Amendment bars Congress from abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press but it says nothing about big high-tech companies or social networks banning political commentators out of favor with the establishment. And thats what they did.

Major tech giants Facebook, Apple, Google, YouTube, Pinterest, iTunes, LinkedIn, Podcast add, MailChimp, YouPorn, and Spotify  have banned Alex Jones, a well-known journalist, and his website InfoWars from their services for spreading around wrong stories, which the platforms owners found hateful. The move is unprecedented, its a real bombshell. It should be noted that it was President Donald Trump who...

How You Can See the Best Meteor Shower of the Year "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Perseid meteor shower is said to be the best of the year, often bringing well over 50 shooting stars per hour in the northern sky.

This annual meteor shower comes as Earth passes through the tail of Comet Swift-Tuttle, causing bright streaks that appear as though theyre radiating from the constellation Perseus.

And this year, the viewing opportunities are about as good as they can get.

The Perseids will peak this weekend between the 12th and 13th, when moonless nights will make for an especially dark sky.

According to NASA, the Perseid meteor shower will reach the beginning of its peak at 4 p.m. (ET) on Sunday the 12th. This will last until 4 a.m. on the 13th.

Shooting stars will be visible north and south of the equator, though observers in mid-northern latitudes will have the best views.

This means the United States, Europe, and Canada will be able to see the Perseids at their best, along with stellar views in Mexico and Central America, Asia, much of Africa, and parts of South America.

Meteors will be visible for those south of the equator, too, though not at the rate seen in more northern areas.

The best time to look for meteors will be from a few hours after twilight until dawn, NASA says.

For viewers in southern latitudes, theyll start to appear in the sky around midnight and continue through the early hours of the morning.

10 Myths about Students "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Published August 11, 2018

Are you a student? If the answer is in the affirmative, then you must be familiar with some of the myths about students and their lifestyle. Sometimes these myths are proven correct, but the rest of the time many of them are proven wrong.

Do you know what myths mean? According to the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of myth means a widely held but false belief or idea.

When I was a student, there was also some myths about students, and they were trendy. Today I will try to share some of those myths which were popular when I was a student and some of todays new generation myths about students so that you can know the truth.

Graduation is Four Years:

It is the most common myth. Everybody thinks that graduation is only four years and every student can complete their graduation within four years. This is a wrong idea. The absolute reality is more than 60 percent of students cant finish their graduation within four years, in fact, most of them need more than five or six years.

Everyone Buys College Essays:

Many people especially students think that they can cut a good grade in the exam if they buy college essays online. But the reality is getting appropriate college essay according to ones need is not that easy.  I think that if students have a bright idea about the importance of education, then it will be easy to cut a good grade in the exam without buying a college essay.

295 Navajo Farmers & Ranchers Sue the EPA & Other Defendants for Gold King Mine Spill "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

San Juan River polluted as result of Gold King Mine; Navajo Nation not happy with EPAs lack of response.

Published August 11, 2018

WINDOW ROCK  On Friday, August 3, 2018, 295 Navajo farmers and ranchers filed suit against the USEPA and a number of private defendants responsible for the 2015 Gold King Mine Spill in Silverton, Colorado. As a result of the spill, these 295 Navajo farmers and ranchers were forced to stop using water from the San Juan River, the main source of water on the Navajo Nation, to irrigate their crops and water their livestock.  The lawsuit seeks approximately $75 million in damages.

On August 5, 2015, the EPA and private contractors hired by the EPA to conduct environmental remediation were performing unsafe excavation work on the Gold King Mine when it burst, spilling 3,000,000 gallons of hazardous waste, including 880,000 pounds of heavy metals, into Cement Creek a tributary of the Animas River.  The Animas River flows into the San Juan River, which runs through 215 miles of the Navajo Nation.

President of the Navajo Nation, Russell Begaye, states the San Juan River has enormous cultural and spiritual significance for our nation in addition to its practical and economic importance.  It is our lifeblood.  Most of the farmers and ranchers have lived and farmed on these lands for generations. The spill was a disaster for the Nation and its people.

As a result of the spill, Navajo farmers were unable to irrigate crops. Many lost their harvest which was their sole source of income, noted Speaker of the 23rd Navajo Nation Council, LoRenzo Bates.  Those who were able to save crops by trucking in water could not sell their crops because of stigma associated with irrigation from waters contaminated by the Gold King Mine Spill.  Navajo ranchers were forced to purchase feed and haul in water at significant expense in order to keep their livestock from drinking from the river.  Then, when our ranchers tried to sell their livestock, they had to do so at significantly reduced prices due to the public stigma.  Our people endured clear and significant losses, and I look forward...

Heinrich, Udall Announce $249K Grant To APS For Native American Language Program "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Published August 11, 2018

WASHINGTON   On Friday U.S. Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) announced that the Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) Indian Education Departments Din Bizaad & A:shiwi Language Program has received a $249,438 grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The funding will support three years of instruction of both the Navajo (Din) and Zuni (A:shiwi) languages in APS schools at the elementary and middle school levels.

Udall and Heinrich led the effort to include the Native American Language Program as part of the Every Students Succeed Act (ESSA), the latest federal education law that overhauled No Child Left Behind and passed in 2015. This critical funding program helps school districts that serve tribal communities create programs to instruct in Native languages to promote their revitalization and maintenance.

Native language programs build stronger connections between generations of Native families and communities, said Udall. Im proud that the funding we helped secure in the Every Student Succeeds Act is being put to good use strengthening and revitalizing Native languages, which are crucial to promoting higher academic achievement outcomes among Native youth. As the vice chairman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, I will continue to work to ensure that Native students have every opportunity to deepen their connection to Native language and culture while getting an excellent education.

Ive seen firsthand how Native students thrive with an education that focuses on their own traditions, particularly the preservation of Native languages, which is integral to maintaining cultural identity,said Heinrich.Instruction in Native languages promotes creativity, reduces the achievement gap, boosts high school graduation rates and college enrollment, and yields long-term benefits outside the classroom. Thats why I fought so hard to include this funding in the Every Student Succeeds Act. I will never stop believing in the boundless potential of all of New Mexicos children. I will keep fighting for investments...

Man Being Chased By Baby Squirrel Calls Police For Help "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

What could be more menacing than a tiny baby squirrel? Literally anything or so you might assume.

Turns out, this little one actually gave somebody quite a scare.

Credit: Polizei Karlsruhe

On Thursday morning, police in the town of Karlsruhe, Germany, were contacted by a man in the throes of an unusual "emergency." While out and about, a persistent animal had evidently taken special interest in him, and he wasn't taking it well.

Here's how authorities paraphrased the man's distress call: "Help, I'm being followed by a squirrel!"

A patrol car was dispatched to the spot, and sure enough, officers found the caller was indeed being chased by the fluffy-tailed creature. Fortunately, they were able to intervene capturing the man's pursuer and placing her in a box for safekeeping.

Tuckered out from all the running, the squirrel promptly fell asleep.

But, as it turns out, she was the one who needed help.

Police believe the baby squirrel had become separated from her mother and, as is sometimes the case, instinctually fixated on the man as her replacement parent. Apparently, the person she chose read the situation somewhat differently.

Dogs Slept Outside Hospital For Weeks Until They Could Visit Patient "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Every day, staffers at the Hospital Agudo medical facility in Brazil apply their expertise to aid patients suffering from injuries or diseases. But this week, a special type of treatment was offered for a different sort of ailment.

It was to help heal a few broken hearts.

Credit: Facebook/Hospital Agudo

Late last month, on the day a local man was transferred to the hospital, folks working there first began noticing something unusual going on outside the main entrance.

A pair of dogs, for whatever reason, had chosen the space near the entryway as their new hangout. And they refused to leave.

Credit: Facebook/Hospital Agudo

For the next two weeks, the dogs remained, spending their days and nights camped out front. Turns out, the pups were there with a purpose.

As care staff came to learn, one of the dogs belonged to the patient who'd been admitted on the day of the dogs' arrival. Her name is Princess. The other dog, dubbed Scooby, is Princess's friend who decided to keep her company as she waited for her owner's return.

Veterinarian Maria Alice Altermann first learned about Princess and Scooby from her friend, a nurse at the hospital. She and a colleague were asked to bring the dogs in for a checkup.

But the dogs got more than just that.

Doctors at the hospital decided that, for the benefit of everyone, Princess and Scooby should be allowed to see the patient they'd been waiting for. So they were taken to a groomer, too, in preparation for the visit.

Little Kitten Comes Home One Day Carrying A Strange Baby On Her Back "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This little white kitten named Blanquis may still be less than a year old, but she already knows better than most what it means to have an open heart.

In fact, you might say she's paying it forward.

Last December, Yessica Rodriguez found Blanquis stranded on the streets near her home in Altamira, Mexico. The kitten was so young at the time, her eyes had yet to even open so Rodriguez took it upon herself to fill in for Blanquis' mom, raising her as a member of the family.

Blanquis has blossomed into a beautiful youngster, and she had apparently taken note of the love that made that possible.

Rodriguez was preparing for work last Friday morning when she heard her husband calling out to her with a surprising announcement.

"He said, 'You have to come down here,'" Rodriguez told The Dodo. "'Your kitten has an animal on her back!'"

Confused about what he'd meant, Rodriguez hurried down to take a look and sure enough, this is what she saw:

Rodriguez couldn't believe her eyes. Indeed, Blanquis suddenly had a tiny passenger.

"Much to my surprise, it was a baby opossum," Rodriguez said.

It's unclear where exactly Blanquis had discovered the baby opossum, or how he came to lose his mother, but the little guy was clearly in need of a parental figure.

So, Blanquis had evidently allowed him to climb upon her back and carried him to the safety of her home.

Scientists take a closer look at Earths first animals "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When did animals originate? In research published in the journal Palaeontology, we show that this question is answered by Cambrian period fossils of a frond-like sea creature called Stromatoveris psygmoglena.

The Ediacaran Period lasted from 635 to 542m years ago. This era is key to understanding animal origins because it occurred just before the Cambrian explosion of 541m years ago, when many of the animal groups living today first appeared in the fossil record.

Yet when large fossils from the Ediacaran Period were first identified during the 20th century they included unique frond-like forms, which were not quite like any living animal. This prompted one of the greatest debates still raging in evolution. What exactly were these enigmatic fossils, often called the Ediacaran biota?

U.S. Is Killing Wild Horses For The Worst Reason "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The wild horses ran for their lives as noisy helicopters chased after them. The helicopters dipped down low and nearly clipped the horses heads. The terrified animals were so focused on galloping away that some of them didnt see the barbed wire fence that suddenly emerged in their path, and they toppled headfirst over the fence, crashing hard into the ground.

This was the scene an observer with the American Wild Horse Campaign watched on Tuesday at the Bible Springs Complex and the Sulphur Herd Management Area (HMA) in Southern Utah, two areas designated as public lands. This week, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a U.S. government agency, was trying to round up and remove up to 250 wild horses from these areas  but for the worst reason.

Credit: American Wild Horse Campaign

There are currently around 70,000 wild horses in the U.S., and theyre technically protected under federal law. However, the BLM believes there are too many wild horses running through public lands, and that theyre overgrazing and destroying the environment. However, animal welfare advocates believe the BLMs real reason for getting rid of horses is to make room for cattle.  

Wild horses eat grass and cattle eat grass, Grace Kuhn, communications director for the American Wild Horse Campaign, told The Dodo. But livestock brings in the money. Wild horses dont.

Credit: American Wild Horse Campaign

The way the BLM captures horses is very concerning to Kuhn.

Helicopters stampede the horses from miles, Kuhn said. Then they funnel them into this area, and let go what they call a Judas horse a trained domestic horse who has a harness. Horses are herd animals, so they follow the lead animal into wherever. So its tricking the horses by leading them into the trap.

The helicopters would be particularly stressful to the horses.

Making the Case for Sustainable Meat "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I. Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics Meat, we are told, is bad for the planet. It causes global warming, destroys forests, diverts substantial proportions of the world's grain for feed, all to produce meat which only wealthy Westerners can afford. The iniquity of the situation led George Monbiot to declare in 2002 that "Veganism is the only ethical response to what is arguably the world's most urgent social justice issue." Monbiot later recanted but, since then, we are told with increasing regularity that to save the planet we must radically reduce our consumption of meat. In the face of what seems to be universal agreement on the sins of meat eating, is there really a green argument for meat? I think there is, and I think we should be talking about it. Not only is the public discourse heavily one-sided, but the anti-meat message risks destroying the very environment it claims to be protecting. Let's start with one of the most repeated statistics used to argue for reduced meat consumption: the claim that 100,000 litres of water are required to produce each kilo of beef - which is a staggering 1000 times more than what is needed to produce a single kilo of wheat. With magazines such as New Scientist uncritically quoting this figure, it is not surprising that it has circulated so widely. Taken at face value, this estimate is shocking and may on its own be responsible for switching tens of thousands of people away from eating meat.

Dangers of Pathological Altruism: Migrant Saved by Swedish Activist is a Wife Beating Child Abuser "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Theres a good chance youve been lectured on the virtues of selflessness. Regardless of how religious you are, putting others welfare before your own can carry a lot of clout.

But is acting on others behalf always a good thing? Should a willing altruist ever keep from extending a helping hand?

As it turns out, there are many situations in which unbridled benevolence may be a dangerous deed.

Say hello to pathological altruism. Broadly defined as good intentions gone awry by pathological altruism pioneer Barbara Oakley, the term applies to any helping behavior that ends up hurting either the provider or recipient of supposedly well-meaning intentions.

42-Year-Old Donkey Saved From Worst Place Finds The Friend She Always Needed "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When Hattie was around 34 years old, she was put up for auction to be sold for slaughter. She was incredibly underweight with long, overgrown hooves, and had clearly not been treated very well throughout her life. Rescuers from Longhopes Donkey Shelter in Bennett, Colorado, stepped in and were able to rescue all of the donkeys who were in danger that day. While most of the donkeys were put up for adoption, the shelter decided that senior Hattie had been through enough, and would stay with them for the rest of her life. 

We made that decision because we believe that animals should be treated with dignity, love, and respect, Victoria Schroeder, executive director at Longhopes Donkey Shelter, told The Dodo. We felt that Hattie did not receive that prior in her life and thats why someone dumped her to be slaughtered. But since the first day she arrived at Longhopes, she has changed everyones life. 

Credit: Victoria Schroeder

Now 42 years old, Hattie is the sweetest, most understanding animal around. Despite everything she has been through, she is nothing but patient and kind with everyone around her, and can sense when someone needs a little extra help. She often cares for young orphaned or abandoned donkeys who need a motherly figure, and shes always the first to sense when someone is nervous or upset, both animals and humans alike. 

Credit: Victoria Schroeder

We usually have our brand-new volunteers learn their skills with Hattie, Schroeder said. Other donkeys sometimes get nervous when a new volunteer handles them. But Hattie knows that they are new and she lets them pick up her hooves, brush her, lead her, without difficulty. She is truly a teacher here. She always shows us the way and makes us understand that everyone needs time to learn new things and its OK when we make mistakes we will get it next time. 

Hattie has truly become a mother figure at the shelter and is always around to comfort anyone who needs it which is how she ended up finding her best friend. ...

No Escape from Existential Reality "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

No Escape from Existential Reality
by Sartre

"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away."
- Philip K. Dick

"Finally agreement! No one can dispute the reality that we all will die. Since most choose to block out this fate or find it discomforting to consider, the roots of denial are sown. Refusal to confront the one great similarity that all humans share, is a trait that has greatly affected our political and social lives. Life is to be lived, no doubt. But how you live it greatly depends upon how you treat the final ending.

Death, freedom, existential isolation, and seeming meaninglessness are central themes that involve our presence in and of this world. Since a spiritual realm is often shunned and frequently denied by the most unstable elements within society, it comes as no surprise that a rush for status and political power becomes a substitute for empyrean beliefs.

Because dying is inevitable, the populace fears social isolation because the idea that life is meaningless is so intolerable. The freedom they exhibit has the instincts of the herd. However communal it becomes, the fact that each person accepts the pack, is personal in its most basic decision. Yes, determinism seems to be normal for most; but the nature of that resignation lies in an acceptance that no other course is possible.

Surely, the cognizant capacity within each person retains the autonomy to continue on with his life. Forgoing the forcible taking of a life, the individual sele...

"The One Guilty Man"
by Paulo Coelho

"Wise King Weng asked to visit the palace prison. And he began listening to the prisoners complaints. Im innocent, said a man accused of murder. Im here simply because I wanted to give my wife a fright, but I accidentally killed her. I was accused of taking a bribe, said another, but all I did was accept a gift.

All the prisoners declared their innocence to King Weng, until one of them, a young man of only twenty or so, said: Im guilty. I wounded my brother in a fight and I deserve to be punished. This place has made me reflect on the pain I caused. Remove this criminal from the prison immediately! cried King Weng. Hell end up corrupting all these entirely innocent men."

Great southern drought: Australian farmers crippled, climate action stalled https://www.dw.com/en/great-southern-drought-australian-farmers-crippled-climate-action-stalled/a-45015773

Amidst the worst drought in living memory, the worlds driest continent is also heating up due to climate change. Critics say too little is being done to prevent increasing temperatures and decreasing rainfall.

New South Wales, which is Australias most populous state and about the size of France, was declared 100 percent in drought on Wednesday.

Despite the fact that it is winter, farmers in the state and throughout the southern region of Australia are struggling to maintain their livelihood as crops fail and livestock die.

With grazing land turned to dust, some farmers have resorted to hand-feeding to keep their stock alive. They also have permission to shoot kangaroos that compete for pasture. Depression and suicide among farmers are on the rise.

And yet, there is no end in sight to this crippling drought, unseen for generations. The predicted start of bushfire season has been brought forward two months in New South Wales to prepare for what could be an apocalyptic summer scenario.

AUGUST 10, 2018



Sigh. Dare we feign surprise? I mean is there any point? Is this soft disclosure of the worst case scenario north of the 49th?

You know, it was only a few years ago that I actually believed Canada was far behind her cousin, the American Woman to the south, in corruption, false flag terrorism and infiltration by the cabal and the central banksters.

Sure the military covered up crashing space craft but I thought pedophilia was our worst problem only in isolated pocketslike Vancouver, the coven capital. I hadnt heard much about it within parliament.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was the most embarrassing topic consistently in the news, and his brother Doug currently walking in his shoes seems to be setting a better example.

Yes, PM Stephen Harper was a flagrant cabalist, but I had hope for young Justin as wed heard the new generation of the elite circles were sometimes rebelling and breaking free of the mind control shackles, working with us to dissolve the evil regime.

Since his installment, however, Trudeau has left no doubt he is either deeply in the pockets of the cabal, or a much better actor than we imagined, but the worst thing we knew of was his losing an eyebrow.

It seems, however, that in the not too distant past there may have been some parents demanding, Hey, teacher! Leave our kids alone. This could very well turn out to be Canadas jarring wake-up call.

Even if Justin were to be put under house arrest or given a GPS ankle bracelet like John McCain and Hillary Clinton, would it make the front page of the Globe and Mail or qualify as breaking news on the CBC this week? Come on.

Who Has the Power in SADC? 
Giving member states specific roles could result in a more effective Southern African Development Community

By Southern Times
Aug10, 2018
Liesl Louw-Vaudran

Leaders of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) will meet in Windhoek next week for their 38th annual summit. South Africa is handing over the leadership of the organisation to Namibia, but will continue to be part of the Troika of former, current and future SADC chairs.

Of the 16 SADC countries, South Africa has by far the largest economy. It is technologically the most advanced and has the third largest population (56 million). The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is the most populous country with around 80 million.

Projections of global power capabilities among SADC countries using the International Futures (IFs) forecasting tool show that by 2040, Angola will be the only country that approaches South Africa, but that the latter will still wield more power potential. The only other country in SADC that will come close to these two heavyweights is Tanzania, largely because of rapid population growth.

Some countries, however, wield extensive soft power defined as the capacity of states to influence other states through means beyond just military might. This often includes economic, diplomatic or cultural influence.

A plan has started emerging in SADC in which regional champions or locomotives are identified to drive certain issues and ensure a more equitable partitioning of roles. This is similar to the African Union (AU) trend that identifies, for example, champions for AU reform (Rwandas President Paul Kagame), corruption (Nigerias President Muhammadu Buhari) or intra-African trade (Nigers President Mahamadou Issoufou).

The allocation of country-specific responsibilities to drive certain issues in SADC is not new. It was first introduced by SADCs predecessor, the Southern African Development Coordination Conference. Since the creation of SADC in 1992, certain countries have stood out when it comes to wielding influence in decision making. Zimbabwes former president Robert Mugabe managed to steer the regional bloc in his preferred direction several times.

Endangered Sea Turtle Passed Away Because Someone Left Trash On A Beach "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Earlier this week, a young female sea turtle was found on a beach in Walton County, Florida, trapped between the rusted metal legs of a barstool.

Members of the South Walton Turtle Watch, a group that works to protect local sea turtles and nests, responded to a beachgoers report, but hopes of saving the turtle quickly disappeared when they realized just how long shed been trapped in her small metal prison.

Credit: South Walton Turtle Watch

Its believed that the Kemp's ridley sea turtle, a critically endangered species, had been pulled underwater by the weight of the stool, and subsequently drowned.

We could see no cause of death and think it was due to drowning, as it could not keep its head above the water, Sharon Maxwell, a member of the South Walton Turtle Watch, told The Dodo.

Despite the fact that the turtle had passed quite some time ago, the members wanted to free her.

Once the turtle and the stool were separated, the stool was examined for some sign of its origin, but none were found.

Credit: South Walton Turtle Watch

Kemps ridley turtles often hunt for crabs in shallow coastal areas, and due to the location of their hunting grounds, become entangled with marine debris, fishing nets and other gear.

The stool was most likely just another piece of refuse floating off the coast. And when garbage is left behind, turtles are the ones to suffer.

This is so very sad, and so easy to stop. Please do not leave your items, anything, on the beach, South Walton Turtle Watch wrote on Facebook. We did get this beautiful lady out of the chair. She was a critical endangered Kemps and of course she was dead. Look at her head to see what she went through. Poor thing, it must have been an awful death. Why can't we keep things off the beach at night?

As hibakusha numbers dwindled a plea to carry on the campaign to get rid of nuclear weapons "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Keep up the fight to eliminate nuclear weapons, Japan Times, 10 Aug 18   The number of surviving hibakusha as of the end of March was 154,859, a decline of 9,762 from a year earlier. In recent years, nearly 10,000 hibakusha have been passing away annually. Their average age has surpassed 82. This nations firsthand experience of the atomic bombings will fade with time. That is all the more reason for us to keep pushing for the elimination of nuclear weapons.

In his address during this years anniversary ceremony marking the Hiroshima atomic bombing, Hiroshima Gov. Hidehiko Yuzaki summed up the danger of believing in the balance of power ensured by nuclear deterrence by asking how would you explain it to your children.

You see, we dont get along well with our next-door neighbor. So we have set a bomb that can blow up their house with all the family inside, just in case. We can press the button to set off this bomb any time. Our neighbor, on the other hand, has also set a bomb to blow up our house. Of course, neither family wants both families to end up dead, so I feel assured that they will never press the button. We will never do so, either. In short, we will never go into battle against each other. And the bombs will probably not malfunction. And we wont press the button by mistake, either, I hope. So you dont have to worry, the governor said, adding, How many of you could seriously offer such an explanation to your children?

How can we continue with a policy that we cannot explain to our next generation? https://www.japantimes.co.jp/opinio...

Industry Revival Requires More Innovation, Not Money
By Southern Times
Aug10,2018
Prosper Ndlovu

DISTRESSED companies in Zimbabwe do not necessarily need money but to revisit their business models as some of them have been overtaken by events.

Prominent Bulawayo-based businessman and Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce (ZNCC) past president, Obert Sibanda, said this as he challenged businesses to move with the times by embracing technology so as to meet modern market tastes.

Zimbabwes manufacturing hub, Bulawayo, has suffered severe de-industrialisation in recent years largely attributed to closure and relocation of companies as a result of a myriad of political-economic factors and structural changes in the macro-economic environment. While many tend to blame politics and lack of funding for the demise of industry in the city and the country at large, Sibanda says not all industry problems require money.

For any company in distress, the most obvious prognosis is money. I, however, want to point out that money is not the panacea to most companies problems. Most companies need to revisit their business models as some have been overtaken by events. The biggest challenge in most companies is not money but is the market, says Sibanda, a construction industry player and entreprenuer in the education sector.

He made reference to a book by Moeletsi Mbeki titled "Advocate for Change in which the author refers to the Lagos Plan of Action, which was premised on a number of article observations about Africa`s industrialisation experience.

The first observation was the inadequacy of domestic markets as a basis for far reaching industrialisation under import substitution. The second observation was technological dependency, followed by the financing of imported producer goods and fourth being the weakness of the domestic industrial class both in terms of financial and managerial capacity.

These observations that were highlighted in 1971 in the Lagos Plan of Action are still applicable to our situation today, says Sibanda. When a company is in distress, it is important to establish whether the company is economically distressed or financially distress...

Former Liberation Movements Sweat for Rule
By Southern Times
Aug10,2018
Lovemore Ranga Mataire

An ominous sign is on the horizon for former liberation movements in southern Africa following the recent outcome of Zimbabwes harmonised elections in which ZANU-PFs presidential candidate Emmerson Mnangagwa scored a marginal victory over his closet rival, Nelson Chamisa of the MDC Alliance.

 Mnangagwa polled 2, 460,463 (50.8%) against Chamisa's 2,147,436 (44.3%) of the total votes cast.

Analysts say the marginal victory by the ruling partys candidate must be a cause for concern for other former liberation movements in the region who over the years have experienced a decline in votes, particularly in urban areas.

They say while ZANU-PF can be consoled by an easy parliamentary majority, its poor showing in urban areas must be enough cause to jolt the party into serious introspection.

ZANU-PF won 145 seats in the National Assembly while the MDC Alliance managed to get 63 seats in parliament's 210-member chamber. The majority of the seats won by ZANU-PF are in rural areas while those won by MDC Alliance are mainly in urban areas.

The statistics reflect that while ZANU-PF, like the ANC of South Africa, is experiencing a decline in urban support, in relative terms the two parties remain popular in rural areas. But what should be of concern to ZANU-PF is that this massive rural appeal seems misaligned with the presidential votes, which are less than those polled by parliamentarians.

Granted that internal ructions could have impacted negatively on the presidential vote, there is no denying the fact that over the years in the SADC region, former liberation movements popularity is on a downward trend.

Although acknowledging ZANU-PFs dominance in rural areas, the partys secretary for administration, Obert Mpofu, insists that several interventions were being made to lure the urban vote.

There is a growing concern among liberation movements about this rural-urban divide. Liberation movements are mass p...

What is Really Happening in SADC?
By Southern Times
Aug10,2018
Timo Shihepo

Windhoek - The once peaceful daring region of Africa is fast seeing its non-violent image fading due to various events occurring in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries in recent years.

Persisting events in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and in the Kingdom of Lesotho continue to paint a bad image of the region, while fresh election violence in Zimbabwe and Madagascar have further cast doubt over the future of the region and its protocol on politics, defence and security.

SADCs Protocol on Politics, Defence and Security aims to promote peace and security across southern Africa, protecting the regions people from instability due to the breakdown of law and order, developing a common foreign policy throughout the region, and cooperating on matters related to security and defence.

The common foreign policy, or the lack of it, however, did nothing to protect its fellow citizens when Zimbabweans living in South Africa were the subject of xenophobic attacks.

At the moment, this protocol is nothing but a toothless bulldog, which has watched as the region collectively failed to solve the political crisis in the DRC for a number of years that has left hundreds of people dead and many more injured and displaced.

The protocol was also powerless when the DRCs president Joseph Kabila refused a SADC envoy aimed at restoring order in that country. Though he was supposed to step down already in 2016, Kabila is still president two years later, and the country never held elections when his term ended.

Two weeks ago, Kabila also refused to host UScretary-General Antonio Guterres and US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, saying he has important decisions to announce. The decision he was talking about was to pronounce whether he would run for the election in December or name his preferred candidate. The deadline was on Wednesday this week.

In Zimbabwe, the SADC protocol, or SADC in general, was powerless when eight people lost their lives on the....

Guy Refused To Adopt Because He 'Wasn't A Cat Person' But Kitten Had Other Plans "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Larry Ritchie has never really considered himself a cat person. 

About a month ago, he and his girlfriend were walking through their local SPCA and she asked him multiple times if he would be willing to adopt a kitten. Every time he said no but one of the kittens at the shelter that day had other plans

Nirvana had been abandoned in a box outside the shelter with her siblings when she was just a few months old. As the staffers at the shelter got to know her, they found that she wasnt a huge fan of being held and was a little nervous around new people, but all of that changed as soon as she met Ritchie and his girlfriend. 

Credit: Larry Ritchie

She was hesitant at first because we were told she didnt like to be picked up, Ritchie told The Dodo. She let us pick her up and they said that it was unusual. 

As soon as Nirvana met the couple, she warmed up to them immediately, and everyone who had worked with the kitten and knew her personality was shocked. 

She sat and purred in my lap as the lady said, How? She wont let anyone hold her! I knew I wanted her then, Ritchie said.

Even though Nirvana made a strong case trying to change Ritchies mind about cats, he and his girlfriend left the shelter without her but Ritchie soon realized that hed made a mistake, and that she was meant to be their kitten. 

Initially I felt as if there was a lot more to handle at home and wasnt sure if the responsibility would be more than we could keep up with, Ritchie said. But driving home from the shelter I changed my mind.

United Nations calls for investigation into Saudi air strike on Yemen bus that killed over 50 civilians "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The United Nations Security Council believes a credible and transparent probe is needed into a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on a bus in Yemen, in which dozens of children were killed, according to the British envoy to the UN. "They expressed their grave concern at these, and all other recent attacks in Yemen. They called for a credible and transparent investigation," Karen Pierce, council president for August, said after a senior UN official briefed the 15-member council on the strike. The strike, in a busy market area in northern Saada, an area controlled by Houthi rebels fighting against the Saudi-led military intervention that started in 2015, has claimed the lives of over 50 civilians, many of them children between 10 and 13 years old, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Bear Grylls' New 'Adventure Park' Will Let People Swim With Captive Sharks "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Swimming with aquarium sharks.

Its an experience most would call exhilarating but is it bad for the sharks?

In the case of Bear Grylls Adventure Park, a new tourist attraction thats allowing guests to dive in tanks full of live sharks, the short answer is a very likely "yes."

Set to open in Birmingham, England, this fall, the park is backed by celebrity survivalist Bear Grylls. The attraction promises to take guests on some of the world's most incredible mental and physical challenges inspired by Bears love of adventure.

The ocean survivalist section will have a tank filled with live blacktip reef sharks, and offer regular diving excursions inside the tank. Animal advocates and conservationists say that the stress it will put on the animals could be dangerous.

If you put sharks into a combined space with humans, its inevitable that there will be stress, DJ Schubert, a wildlife biologist with the Animal Welfare Institute, told The Dodo. Tanks simply cant meet the physical and psychological needs of the sharks, which makes for an unhealthy animal.

Even though blacktip reef sharks are a timid shark species typically used in aquariums, they are known to bite swimmers legs or ankles in the wild because they sometimes mistake humans for prey. Putting the sharks in closer proximity with people, with little room to avoid them, may further increase the chances of guests being bitten, Schubert explained.

The same [biting] behavior, if not worse behavior, can be observed in captive sharks because they dont have the ability to escape from people within their tank, Schubert said. I would be concerned about the potential of adverse interactions with the customers.

Dog Left Behind In Apartment Was So Matted He Could Barely Move "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Day after day, Sunny the poodle simply waited.

It had been weeks, but his family still hadnt come home.

All of their furniture was gone even his food bowls. He drank from the open toilet because he was so thirsty, and he was getting skinnier by the day. His hair was so matted and dirty that it hurt to move. He yearned for relief.

Finally, after waiting for so long, someone found Sunny.

He was brought to us by an apartment complex manager who had done a final walkthrough and found that Sunny had been left in the apartment, Cassie Lackey, community relations manager with Humane Society of North Texas, told The Dodo. He was just locked inside the apartment and left to roam around.

Sunnys family had apparently moved out of the apartment and left the 2-year old dog behind. While his abandonment was shocking enough, his condition showed the neglect had gone on for quite some time, likely before theyd even left. His fur was filthy, matted and infested with bugs. The hair around his legs was so knotted and painful that he could barely move.

When you lifted the fur away from his eyes, he just winced, Lackey said. He was like a statue. His eyes would move, but his body stayed still.

A groomer from a local PetSmart store offered to take on the delicate job of freeing Sunny from the painful mats. He required a light sedative to stay relaxed throughout the process, while the groomer cut his hair in sections.

Scanning Tunneling Microscope Packs the Bits "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

We dont usually think of a microscope as an active instrument, but researchers in Canada have used a scanning tunneling microscope to remove or replace single hydrogen atoms from the surface of a hydrogen-passivated silicon wafer. If the scientific paper is too much to wade through, theres an IEEE Spectrum article and a video that might run on the 6 oclock news below.

As usual with these research projects, there is good news and there is bad news. The good news is that in theory a memory device made using hydrogen lithography could store 138 terabytes per square inch. Thats enough, apparently, to store the entire iTunes catalog on a quarter. The bad news? Well, right now this takes exotic lab equipment at very low temperatures and pressures.

Hydrogen bonds with the silicon, but the scanning tunneling microscope probe can be energized in a way that it rips a particular hydrogen atom away, exposing a dangling bond on the corresponding silicon atom. The STM can also read the memory back.

Apparently, the team thinks the system would be stable at higher temperatures based on prior work with similar materials. They also think they could find a way to relax the ultra-high vacuum requirement, although it was less clear whether they had a realistic plan for that. Another atomic-scale memory technology that uses chlorine and copper isnt stable for long, also requires cold temperatures and delivers a lower density.

Right now the technique isnt very fast. A song from Mario Brothers took 192 bits with a write time of 250 seconds. Part of what makes it interesting, though, is they have a way to automate the process. That is, there are changes in factors such as the current draw through the probe that indicate when a hydrogen atom successfully attached or detached. So while this is far away from being practical today, we could see that one day all of Archive.org might be in a small refrigerated case full of this technology.

This isnt the first time weve seen atomic memory using this kind of equipment but with different atoms. Weve also looked at scanning tunneling microscopes before and there are several STM builds over on Hackaday.io.

Dog Does The Sweetest Thing To Welcome Her New Sick Little Brother To Family "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Timmy was found on the streets of Argentina in 2016, cowering in a corner all alone. He was emaciated, mange-ridden and scared of everyone around him, and he could barely stand, let alone walk, because he was so weak. A kind woman who often rescues strays off the streets took him in and posted about him on Facebook, hoping to find someone willing to take a chance on him. 

Thats how Jessica Rojo Savard, Timmys new mom, found him.

Savard already had a cat and a dog of her own at home, both with their own rescue stories, and she had decided a while back that her adoption quota had been filled. When she saw the post about Timmy, though, all of that changed. There was something about his face that told her he was meant to be hers. 

I cried while I read the post and immediately after contacted [his rescuer] to adopt him, even if in the picture I couldn't tell if he was a puppy or a senior, had short hair or long hair it did not matter, Savard told The Dodo. I knew that in his state, adoption would be hard.

Savard waited a few weeks until Timmys mange was no longer contagious, then went to pick him up and brought him straight to the vet. Aside from the issues Savard already knew about, Timmy was doing OK, and had even started to gain some weight since he was first rescued. Everyone who encountered Timmy would gasp when they saw him, though, because he was still so skinny and sickly looking. He barely looked like a dog at all. The secretary at the vets office commented that he looked more like a meerkat than a dog, and thats where his proper name, Timon the name of the meerkat in The Lion King came from.
