Farmers Market Wayville "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

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

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

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

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

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

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

They can kill me at any moment, but they are going to regret it forever because, after Im dead, others will take my place. Alenquer The peasant leader, Aluisio Samper, known as Alenquer, was assassinated last Thursday afternoon in his home in the town of Castelo de Sonhos, located along the BR-163 highway that links northern Mato Grosso state, Brazils main soy-producing region, with the Tapajs and Amazon rivers. His home also functioned as the headquarters for SINTRAFF (Sindicato de Trabalhadores e Trabalhadoras da Agricultura Familiar/ Trade Union for Workers in Family Agriculture). Two suspects have been arrested in relation to land theft and Alenquers killing, according to Thiago Mendes Sousa, Castelo de Sonhos superintendent of civil police. The superintendent also reported that the civil and military police carried out a joint operation, travelling to the Mutum-aca ranch to arrest Julio Cesar, known as Julia da Guara, the man allegedly behind the assassination. Police were met by bullets and returned fire, killing a ranch employee. Julio Cesar was not found. According to the superintendent, the police have issued two arrest warrants for members of a criminal gang who invaded land and killed good people. The raids aim, he said, was to put an end to these crimes and stop the land grabbing that is occurring along the BR-163. The murder investigation is

$25m in funding to help African govts prosecute poachers, traffickers "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A prominent African wildlife conservation NGO has committed $25 million to help protect iconic fauna from poaching and habitat loss across the continent by investing in African institutions and people. We are seeing recovery and stabilization of some critical wildlife populations, Kaddu Sebunya, president of the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), said in a statement. We know what is working and its time to scale up the investment to combat this serious threat. The Nairobi-based organization made the announcement on Oct. 11 during the Illegal Wildlife Trade conference in London. The money will complement more than $13 million that AWF says it has used to support projects aimed at countering the illegal trade of wildlife and wildlife products. The African Wildlife Foundations work includes programs to stop the loss of habitat for large carnivores, such as cheetahs. Image by John C. Cannon/Mongabay. If we can keep wildlife safe from poachers, make wildlife products difficult to move around, actively involve key local players, and dampen the demand for wildlife products, then Africas magnificent animals have a fighting chance, Philip Muruthi, AWFs chief scientist, said in the statement. Current AWF projects include training sniffer dogs credited with detecting the presence of more than 250 illicit shipments of wildlife products; engaging with communities to encourage economic development that also supports conservation; and equipping wildlife rangers with the tools they need to catch poachers. This infusion of funds will go toward bolstering the capacity of authorities, specifically judges and prosecutors, to hold poachers and traffickers

123 baby giant tortoises stolen from Galpagos breeding center "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On the night of Sept. 24, 123 giant tortoise hatchlings were stolen from the Arnaldo Tupiza breeding center on Isabela, the largest island in the Galpagos. The hatchlings belonged to two species, the Cerro Azul (Chelonoidis vicina) and Sierra Negra (Chelonoidis guntheri) giant tortoises, the Ministry of Environment of Ecuador said in a statement. Both species are listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List. The theft is under investigation by the Galpagos attorney generals office, the ministry said, and they are withholding further information to avoid obstruction of the work of the competent authorities. A week-old Galapagos tortoise. Image by Peder Toftegaard Olsen via Flickr (CC BY-ND 2.0). Native to the Galpagos Islands, the Galpagos giant tortoises have experienced a severe population decline over the past decades, caused mainly by hunting for meat and oil, the introduction of non-native animals like goats, rats and pigs to the islands, and agricultural expansion. Today, only 10 of the 15 known species of Galpagos giant tortoise survive in the wild all either severely threatened or on the brink of extinction. Captive-breeding efforts to save the tortoises from extinction began in 1965. The Arnaldo Tupiza breeding center, established in 1993, is one of three tortoise centers in the Galpagos created to help restore giant tortoise numbers in the wild. All three facilities are managed by the Galpagos National Park Directorate. Located on Isabela Island, the Arnaldo Tupiza center spans 2 hectares (5 acres) for the captive breeding of giant tortoises, according to the environment ministrys statement. It

Can we buy our way out of the sixth extinction? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Money, its said, makes the world go round. The old adage appears to be true in conservation, too: A paper in Nature tracked $14.4 billion spent on conservation programs over a 12-year period around the world, and found that it was money well spent. All the money we have been spending on conservation has actually made a difference, says Anthony Waldron, lead author of the paper and research fellow at the National University of Singapore. To understand if spending was effectively making a difference in conservation, the authors compiled a dataset that took into account both species decline and conservation funding per capita in 109 countries. The researchers also looked at how development population growth, industrial expansion, and agriculture contributed to biodiversity loss. The model found that while development and GDP growth affected biodiversity negatively, money spent on conservation greatly reduced those impacts. In the 109 countries studied, all of them signatories to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the researchers found a median average reduction of 29 percent of species loss per country as a result of the billions spent in the period from 1996 to 2008. If we hadnt spent the money, we would have lost a third more biodiversity than we did, Waldron tells wildlife.org. The researchers also found that nearly two-thirds of global biodiversity loss during that period was concentrated in just seven countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, India, Australia and the United States (the latter

Refugee families ripped apart by Australian Government take their case to the United Nations "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

63 mothers, fathers and children permanently separated between Australia and indefinite offshore detention on Manus and Nauru have taken their case for family reunion to the United Nations Human Rights Committee.

The group includes:

  • five babies born in Australia whose fathers are indefinitely detained on Nauru;

  • a father detained on Manus Island for five years whose wife and children are living in Sydney and whose daughters are studying at University; and

  • husbands and wives, children and parents, and brothers and sisters, who remain permanently separated because they arrived and sought protection in Australia on different dates.

The complaint, made on behalf of the families by the Human Rights Law Centre and barristers Kylie Evans, John Maloney and Marion Isobel, is one of the largest UN actions ever brought against the Australian Government and comes during the Governments first year as a member of the UN Human Rights Council.

Daniel Webb, director of legal advocacy with the Human Rights Law Centre, said:

These families just want what every family in the world wants to be together with the people they love the most. But instead they are being needlessly ripped apart and go to bed every night with a massive knot in their stomach not knowing if or when they will ever see each other again, said Mr Webb.

Every one of these families has a heartbreaking separation moment - a moment when they realised our Government was permanently tearing them apart. One of the dads told me he felt like his entire body froze. He said he couldnt move or even breathe and just collapsed to the floor and had to be carried away.

Ripping apart these families is cruel, harmful and clearly illegal.

The UN case contains detailed evidence of the harm being caused to the families by their indefinite separation, particularly the harm being caused to the children who are separated from one of their parents.

The medical evidence is harrowing. Some of these kids are permanently grief-stricken in their minds every single day its like someone they love has died. Imagine being a child and growing up permanently grief stricken, hearing your mum crying in bed every night because she doesnt know if you will ever get to meet your dad. Its just brutal, said Mr Webb.

The families, who have been separated for up to five years, have made repeated requests to the Government to be reunited. Each time they are just ignored or told to go back to offshore detention.

Were talking about a handful of families. Instead of forcing people to choose between the c...

Trump Denies Charitable Donation He Promised If Elizabeth Warren Releases DNA Results And Its On Video "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Donald Trump has repeatedly lashed out at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at his rallies, calling her Pochahontas to cast doubt on her Native American Heritage. Trump even referred to Warren as Pocahontas at a November 2017 White House event honoring Navajo code-breakers. At a rally in Montana this past July, Trump offered Sen. Warren $1 million if she took a DNA test to prove her heritage. Trump spoke of bringing a DNA test to a debate if she challenges him.

We will take that little kit but we have to do it gently. Because were in the #MeToo generation, we have to do it gently, Trump said. And we will very gently take that kit, and slowly toss it, hoping it doesnt injure her arm, and we will say: I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows youre an Indian. I have a feeling she will say no.

Today the Massachusetts Senator released her DNA results.

The facts suggest that you absolutely have a Native American ancestor in your pedigree, an Ancestry.com and 23andMe adviser told Warren.

Warren tweeted Trump to demand he pay what he promised and requested that he make the donation to the National Indigenous Womens Resource Center.

In response, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway called DNA testing junk science.

Then, Trump flat out denied ever promising to make that donation even though its on tape.

Who cares? Trump told reporters today. I didnt say that. Nope, you better read it again.

IPCC Releases Climate Report "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


by Gaius Publius

I'm just delving into the new IPCC special report on the effects of limiting, or not limiting, global warming of 1.5C (full report here), and there are a number of bottom lines coming out of it, including this one, which we reported earlier: "IPCC Manipulating Climate Report Summary to Favor Wealthy Nations."

The reference to manipulation refers to the executive summary part of the report (titled "Summary for Policymakers"), which national representatives are allowed to edit line by line. The rest of the report is written by climate scientists, but written by consensus, which causes it to "lean conservative" in its prognostication and prescriptions.

On that last point, Climate Central wrote in 2012:
Across two decades and thousands of pages of reports, the world's most authoritative voice on climate science has consistently understated the rate and intensity of climate change and the danger those impacts represent, say a growing number of studies on the topic.

This conservative bias, say some scientists, could have significant political implications, as reports from the group the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change influence policy and planning decisions worldwide, from national governments down to local town councils. ...

A comparison of past IPCC predictions against 22 years of weather data and the latest climate science find that the IPCC has consistently underplayed the intensity of global warming in each of its four major reports released since 1990.

The drastic decline of summer Arctic sea ice is one recent example: In the 2007 report [here], the IPCC concluded the Arctic would not lose its summer ice before 2070 at the earliest. But the ice pack has shrunk far faster than any scenario scientists felt policymakers should consider; now researchers say the region could see nearly ice-free summers within 20 years.
Sea ice predictions that are way off the mark are just the first...

Excerpt of 25 Disturbing Facts about Hidden History of Medicine: Water Flouridation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

WATER FLOURIDATION

The following excerpt was taken from:

25 Amazing (and Disturbing) Facts About the Hidden History of Medicine

"Fact #8 : Water fluoridation began in the U.S. in 1945 and continues today, despite the fact that the FDA has never even approved it

The year before water fluoridation began in the United States, the entire dental profession recognized that fluoride was detrimental to dental health. In fact, in 1944 the Journal of the American Dental Association reported that using between 1.6 and 4 ppm (parts per million) fluoride in water would cause 50% of adults to need false teeth. On top of that, the worlds largest study looked at 400,000 students, revealing that tooth decay increased in over 25% with just 1ppm fluoride in drinking water. (http://www.healthycommunications.com)

Yet still, in 1945, fluoride was put into municipal water systems in Newburgh, New York, and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Over the next 50 years, more than 60 percent of the U.S. population was "fluoridated" at a minimum of 1 ppm. Currently, over 75% of the United States water supply contains this deadly toxin. One part of the hoax, "fluoride helps with tooth formation," was removed from the "American Fluoride Campaign" early on. Realizing this might expose the entire campaign as fraudulent, the FDA and CDC simply removed that language, but kept the masses believing that fluoride keeps dental cavities at bay. Over 70% of America still clings to the multi-faceted myth Research proves that fluoride is an extremely neurotoxic chemical which interrupts basic functions of nerve cells in the brain and can lead to Alzheimers, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), infertility, birth defects, diabetes, cancer and lowered IQ.

The aluminum "tricks" the blood-brain barrier and allows chemical access to brain tissue. Think fluoride is used by the rest of the world? France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Finland, India and Great Britain have all rejected its use after special commissions and health secretaries reviewed the negative evidence.

Think fluoride cleanses the water?

Fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in mil...

How To Feed 10 Billion By 2050 Without Destroying The Planet "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Agricultural field with a house in the background

By Olivia Rosane via Eco Watch

By 2050, there will be 10 billion people on the earth, and global income will triple. Feeding more people with more money will increase the environmental pressures put on the planet by the global food system by between 50 and 92 percent. If nothing is done, those pressures will push Earth beyond the planetary boundaries that define a safe operating space for humanity.

Thats the starting point of a major new study published in Nature Wednesday that is the first to quantify how food production and consumption impacts the planets ability to sustain human life.

The food system gobbles up planetary resources in four key ways:

  1. It is a major contributor to climate change.
  2. Land use changes required for farming drive biodiversity loss.

Leaving the car at home: Free bus service is revolutionizing transport in Dunkirk "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Dunkirk is a month into a project that makes it the biggest European city to offer free public transport. So what do people think? One month after the French channel port of Dunkirk introduced free public transport for all, a small revolution is taking place. Two women, perfect strangers until now, are chatting across the aisle about nothing in particular. One admits she sometimes takes the bus "just for the fun of it". A young man wearing headphones is charging his mobile in a socket just above the "request stop" button. On another bus, Claude Pointart, 65, who is retired, says free buses mean her pension goes further. "I'm saving money and they come every 10 minutes so I don't have to wait long. But there's a lot more people taking the bus so you have to avoid the rush hour if you want to sit. Still, I think it's a good thing." On a city bus making its way around the historic port city, passengers smile at the driver and say "Bonjour" as they board. Some of the city's fleet of...

Jon Rappoport -- Universal Flu Vaccine: Mad Science Solution "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A universal flu vaccine: the mad science solution

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has launched efforts to create a vaccine that would protect people from most flu strains, all at once, with a single shot.

Over the years, I've written many articles refuting claims that vaccines are safe and effective, but we'll put all that aside for the moment and follow the bouncing ball.

Massachusetts Senator and big spender, Ed Markey, has introduced a bill that would shovel no less than a billion dollars toward the universal flu-vaccine project. You like something, it sounds good, you know nothing about the details, throw money at it.

Here is a paragraph from an NIAID press release that mentions one of several research approaches:

"NIAID Vaccine Research Center scientists have initiated Phase 1/2 studies of a universal flu vaccine strategy that includes an investigational DNA-based vaccine (called a DNA 'prime')..."

This is quite troubling, if you know what the phrase "DNA vaccine" means. It refers to what the experts are touting as the next generation of immunizations.

Instead of injecting a piece of a virus into a person, in order to stimulate the immune system, synthesized genes would be shot into the body. This isn't traditional vaccination anymore. It's "protective gene therapy".

In any such method, where genes are edited, deleted, added, no matter what the pros say, there are always "unintended consequences," to use their polite phrase. The ripple effects scramble the genetic structure in numerous unknown ways.

Here is the inconvenient truth about DNA vaccines---

They will permanently alter your DNA

The reference is the New York Times, 3/9/15, "Protection Without a Vaccine." It describes the frontier of research---the use of synthetic genes to "protect against disease," while changing the genetic makeup of humans. This is not science fiction:

Denounced by UN on Humanitarian Grounds, US Sanctions Amount to Psychological and Economic Warfare, Rouhani Says "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ahead of the United States newest round of sanctions targeting his country, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday accused the Trump administration of psychological and economic warfare and of working toward regime change in Iran.

Speaking at Tehran University, Rouhani expressed outrage amid rising tensions following President Donald Trumps breach of the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran, the U.S., and five other countries as well as the European Union.

In the past 40 years, there has not been a more spiteful team than the current U.S. government team toward Iran, Iranians and the Islamic Republic, Rouhani said.

After announcing the United States withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in Mayagainst the advice of several world leaders and the wishes of 63 percent of the American publicTrump reimposed sanctions on Iran, banning the countrys purchasing of U.S. banknotes and precious metals as well as airplane and auto parts.

The effects of the sanctions have already been felt by Iranians, with the prices of cars, electronics, and medications doubling.

Earlier this month, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) of the United Nations ordered the U.S. to ensure its sanctions do not endanger Iranians by affecting the delivery of humanitarian aid.

On humanitarian grounds, the U.S. must remove by means of its choosing any impediment to the free exportation to Iran of goods involving humanitarian concerns, the court said.

The sanctions scheduled to be imposed next month will target the countrys oil exports, which account for one-fifth of Irans economy.

National Security Adviser John Bolton insisted earlier this month that the U.S. is not seeking regime change in Irandays after he told an audience at an anti-Tehran gathering that there would be hell to pay if Iran crosses the Trump administration.

How did the Tories end up picking such a manifestly unfit candidate for Mayor of London? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Before he was selected by the Tories as their candidate to challenge Sadiq Khan in the 2020 London Mayoral Election, few had heard of Shaun Bailey, in the weeks after his selection most of the people who have heard about him and his obnoxious views surely wish they hadn't.

Here are just a few of Bailey's views that have come to light since he was selected as the Tory candidate for one of the biggest political jobs in Britain:

  • He said that young inner city girls get passed around gangs of boys "like prostitutes" then deliberately become pregnant to get "a flat" and benefits.
  • He claimed that people celebrating Muslim and Hindu festivals like Diwali and Eid in Britain are robbing Britain of its community and turning it into "a crime-riddled cesspool".
  • He shared a bigoted Tweet attacking the current London Mayor Sadiq Khan as "Mad Mullah Kahn of Londonistan" as recently as 2017.
  • In 2010 he attempted to appeal to the reactionary Tory base by saying that black people should "stop complaining" about racism and discrimination.
  • He said that the provision of free condoms "normalises sex" and "leads to criminality".
  • He made the extraordinary claim that smoking cannabis does much "more damage to society" than people taking highly addictive and dangerous drugs like crack and heroin!
  • He claimed that good looking girls "tend to have been around" sexually, and men are so thick they imagine that women won't have sexually transmitted infections as long as they look pretty and clean.

But the implications of the Bavarian elections go far beyond Germany they are shaking the very foundations of the EU and ever globalism, itself.

Twenty percent of the vote has yet to be tallied. The big winners was the far left Green party. In the 2013 election, it received between 15 and 18% - nearly doubling its count last time. The big surprise is the fast-rising, right-wing Alternative for Germany party or AfD - which doubled its vote up to 11%, giving it representatives in the Bavarian parliament for the first time.

Danes want to put an end to Submarine Killer's behind bars sex romps "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

At least four different women have already been to Storstrm Prison and visited Peter Madsen, the Danish tabloid daily BT reported. To top it off, a female prison worker recently resigned over initiating a relationship with the notorious "submarine killer," who is serving a life sentence. Danish politicians want to stop Peter Madsen's amorous exploits in prison following reports of women flocking to see the inventor who was convicted of brutally murdering a Swedish journalist, BT reported. The Danish People's Party (DF) and the Social Democrats have called on the government and Justice Minister Sren Pape Poulsen to put a limit to the brutal killer's avid sex life. Peter Madsen is also reportedly on the lookout for new pen pals on Facebook. "Our prisons should not become a wedding central for psychopaths," DF MP Peter Kofod Poulsen told BT. According to him, cold-blooded killers should not be granted opportunities to enjoy a sex life behind bars.

Epigenetic Memories are Passed Down 14 Successive Generations, Game-Changing Research Reveals "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

GMI Reporter, Green Med Info
Waking Times

The past of our ancestors lives on through us: Groundbreaking research illustrates how parental experience is not only epigenetically imprinted onto offspring, but onto an unprecedented number of future generations. Rather than occurring over the elongated time scale of millions of years, genetic change can transpire in real biological time through nanoparticles known as exosomes.

Until recently, it was believed that our genes dictate our destiny. That we are slated for the diseases that will ultimately beset us based upon the pre-wired indecipherable code written in stone in our genetic material. The burgeoning field of epigenetics, however, is overturning these tenets, and ushering in a school of thought where nurture, not nature, is seen to be the predominant influence when it comes to genetic expression and our freedom from or affliction by chronic disease.

Epigenetics: The Demise of Biological Determinism

Epigenetics, or the study of the physiological mechanisms that silence or activate genes, encompasses processes which alter gene function without changing the sequence of nucleotide base pairs in our DNA. Translated literally to mean in addition to changes in genetic sequence, epigenetics includes processes such as methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation, sumolyation, and ubiquitylation which can be transmitted to daughter cells upon cell division (1). Methylation, for example, is the attachment of simple methyl group tags to DNA molecules, which can repress transcription of a gene when it occurs in the region of a gene promoter. This simple methyl group, or a carbon bound to three hydrogen molecules, effectively turns the gene off.

Tehran dismisses reports of suicide bomb threat to Iran's Ankara embassy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The statement of Iran's foreign ministry comes following reports by the Turkish newspaper Szc earlier in the day that a suicide attacker was inside the Iranian embassy in Ankara. Iranian state broadcaster reported citing Iran's foreign ministry that the officials dismissed reports of a possible suicide bomb threat at the embassy in Ankara. In addition, the authorities clarified that the embassy was actually never evacuated. Earlier in the day, the Turkish media reported that police had evacuated the Iranian embassy in Ankara and cordoned off the street where the embassy is located on Monday after receiving intel that a suicide bombing plot was unfolding. According to the earlier reports, the ambassador has been escorted from the embassy and protective measures had been taken.

The state of the Early Universe: The beginning was fluid Niels Bohr Institute University of Copenhagen "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The particle physicists at the Niels Bohr Institute have obtained new results, working with the LHC, replacing the lead-ions, usually used for collisions, with Xenon-ions. Xenon is a smaller atom with fewer nucleons in its nucleus. When colliding ions, the scientists create a fireball that recreates the initial conditions of the universe at temperatures in excess of several thousand billion degrees. In contrast to the Universe, the lifetime of the droplets of QGP produced in the laboratory is ultra short, a fraction of a second (In technical terms, only about 10-22 seconds). Under these conditions the density of quarks and gluons is very large and a special state of matter is formed in which quarks and gluons are quasi-free (dubbed the strongly interacting QGP). The experiments reveal that the primordial matter, the instant before atoms formed, behaves like a liquid that can be described in terms of hydrodynamics.

How to approach the moment of creation

One of the challenges we are facing is that, in heavy ion collisions, only the information of the final state of the many particles which are detected by the experiments are directly available but we want to know what happened in the beginning of the collision and first few moments afterwards, You Zhou, Postdoc in the research group Experimental Subatomic Physics at the Niels Bohr Institute, explains. We have developed new and powerful tools to investigate the properties of the small droplet of QGP (early universe) that we create in the experiments. They rely on studying the spatial distribution of the many thousands of particles that emerge from the collisions when the quarks and gluons have been trapped into the particles that the Universe consists of today. This reflects not only the initial geometry of the collision, but is sensitive to the properties of the QGP. It can be viewed as a hydrodynamical flow.

Obama Campaign Manager Slams Pocahontas Warren: Why Now? Why Cant Democrats Ever Stay Focused? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For years Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority Native American to get ahead in her career.

The liberal senator has received much attention for this claim considering her family tree has no Native Americans as far back as the early 1800s.

On Monday Senator Warren released a DNA study where she claims she is 1/512th 1/1024th Native American.
The AP reported:

Responding to years of derision by President Donald Trump and other critics, Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday released a report on a DNA analysis that provides strong evidence she does, in fact, have Native American heritage.

The analysis on the Massachusetts Democrat was done by Stanford University professor Carlos D. Bustamante. He concluded Warrens ancestry is mostly European but says the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.

Bustamante, a prominent expert in the field of DNA analysis, determined Warrens pure Native American ancestor appears in the range of six to 10 generations ago.

But if her ancestor is 10 generations back, that could mean shes just 1/512th Native American, according to the report . That could further excite her critics instead of placating them.

The Globe later issued a correction The DNA test revealed that Elizabeth Warren is not 1/512 Native American, shes 1/1,024. Thats 0.0009765625.

Classified projects are a dime a dozen, from Operation Paperclip which brought the world the nuclear bomb, to the lesser known Operation Northwoods which outlined proposed false flag attacks by the American government on Cuba to justify a declaration of war. Special access programs can be massive in scope and can remain hidden behind a veil of secrecy for decades, even from potentates in government.

Perhaps the largest, most expensive, and least understood collection of classified projects is loosely colloquially referred to as the Secret Space Program, or the SSP. In recent years, several credible whistleblowers have stepped forward to disclose the highly advanced technologies and the highly compartmentalized systems used by the SSP.



Whistleblowers

Much of the leaked information on this matter comes to us from testimonies of various whistleblowers who claimed to have personally worked in these military black projects or for private contractors. This group of whistleblowers includes individuals like Corey Goode, Sergeant Robert Dean, Sergeant Clifford Stone, Robert Wood, Tony Rodrigues, Randy Cramer, and the late William Tompkins. Others like Bob Lazar, Andew Basiago, Emery Smith, Michael Gerloff, and Kevin Trimmel also provide corroborating accounts.

Ecuador Finally Restores Julian Assanges Internet, Phone and Visitation Privileges "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ecuador has partially restored Julian Assanges communications in their London Embassy after UN officials met with Ecuadors president, Lenin Moreno on Friday, reports the Belfast Telegraph.

Assange, who has lived in the embassy for over six years, had his phone and internet access taken away in March over political statements he made in violation of a written commitment made to the government at the end of 2017 not to issue messages that might interfere with other states. His visitor access was also limited to members of his legal team.

Ecuador has told WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange that it will remove the isolation regime imposed on him following meetings between two senior UN officials and Ecuadors President Lenin Moreno on Friday, WikiLeaks said in a statement.

Kristinn Hrafnsson, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief, added: It is positive that through UN intervention Ecuador has partly ended the isolation of Mr Assange although it is of grave concern that his freedom to express his opinions is still limited.

The UN has already declared Mr Assange a victim of arbitrary detention. This unacceptable situation must end.

The UK government must abide by the UNs ruling and guarantee that he can leave the Ecuadorian embassy without the threat of extradition to the United States. Belfast Telegraph

Assange, having been granted political asylum by Ecuador, will not leave the embassy out of the belief that he will be arrested by UK authorities and extradited to the United States, where a Clinton-friendly DOJ awaits the arrival of the man Hillary once joked about murdering via drone strike.

Camera captures light in slow motion: 10 trillion frames per second "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Light is the fastest thing in the universe, so trying to catch it on the move is necessarily something of a challenge. We've had some success, but a new rig built by Caltech scientists pulls down a mind-boggling 10 trillion frames per second, meaning it can capture light as it travels along - and they have plans to make it a hundred times faster. Understanding how light moves is fundamental to many fields, so it isn't just idle curiosity driving the efforts of Jinyang Liang and his colleagues - not that there'd be anything wrong with that either. But there are potential applications in physics, engineering, and medicine that depend heavily on the behavior of light at scales so small, and so short, that they are at the very limit of what can be measured.

This is a paid sponsorship by: - Patriot Charger - Patriot Charger.com, 1-866-566-8930 Good evening, Im still reporting on: Still Reports 2018 Election Prediction, v 1 0, 2408 Synopsis: Democrats have been predicting the big, blue wave for months now as the outcome of the mid-term elections just 24 days from today. However, just as happened 2 years ago, the polls are suddenly shifting towards the red. Why? As we explained 2 years ago, most pollsters lean left, but try to hide it. They can easily and non-transparently manipulate the outcomes of their polls simply by adjusting their skews. There are many ways to skew polls. Today, the Washington Examiner illuminated one method under-sampling. In this case, mainstream polls have been using 29% more Democrats to create their results than Republicans. Well, thats one way. A bit more subtle is predicting turnouts of the two parties on election day. So what if one pollster predicts a 56% turnout for Republicans while another predicts a 48% turnout? However, there are dozens of other really complex ways to do this. However, these fictitious polls have one big problem. On election day, they have to do their best to actually predict the real outcome because thats the number their sales staff will trumpet for the next year. They can say anything they want to in order to sway the American public one way or the other until the morning of election day. Then they have to actually tell the truth as best as they can.

Weve been seeing an influx of repurposed 3D printers recently. Thrifty hackers have been leveraging cheap 3D printers as a way to bootstrap their builds, on everything from laser engravers to pick and place machines. Theres nothing wrong with that, and honestly when you can get a cheap 3D printer for less than the cost of the components separately thanks to the economies of scale, youd be foolish not to.

But theres still something to be said for the classic RepRap mentality of building things using printed parts and smooth rods. Case in point, the largely 3D printed plotter that [darth vader] sent in for our viewing pleasure. This isnt somebody sicking a pen on the extruder of their open box Monoprice special, this is a purpose built plotter and it shows.

Why There is No Change in Treaty Status and Why There is No "Numbers" Requirement

Some self-interested parties are challenging our right to self-government and to our inheriting of our own estates based on the idea that we are a "new" entity and that there hasn't been "continuity of government" between The United States of America formed September 9, 1776 and today.

We invite them to prove it.

Did our States ---- Alabama, Ohio, Wisconsin, etc., suddenly disappear? And if they did, what had to happen to all versions of "State of Alabama" and "State of Ohio", etc.?

Ever tried to form a "State of Iowa" without Iowa?

That is what their claims logically reduce to.

Did we actually, physically disappear?

No, we have all the direct evidence of our provenance that anyone could ever imagine or wish for, back beyond the Revolution. We and our ancestors have been here continuously and never left.

All that happened to make it appear otherwise in any sense was a self-interested fraud scheme by commercial corporations masquerading as "governments" to steal our property via falsification of public records.

Have we and our parents and grandparents and great-grandparents ever ceased to object and take exception to these false representations and presumptions?

Stop Talking About "The" Republic. There Isn't One.



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

Our fifty nation-states are each owed a "republican" form of government. Note the difference: "republican" (feminine) versus "republic" (masculine) in Latin.

There is no doubt that the Founders who were schooled in both Greek and Latin said exactly what they meant.

Their purpose was to describe the government owed to our soil jurisdiction states as opposed to the "democracy" adopted by the British Territorial Government and the oligarchy of The Roman Republic.

The only "Republic" even remotely related to our Government was the Municipal Government of Rome --- The Roman Republic, under which auspices the District of Columbia owed its aegis.

Thus, there is no American "Republic" related to our lawful government nor any American Government for "which it stands" and never was; except for the distant and intended-to-be minor authority of the now-defunct Roman Pontificate within the District of Columbia, which is, itself, foreign to our government "of the people, for the people, and by the people".

Similarly, except for the British Territorial Government, there has never been a "democracy" here, either.

It's all just more deceptive talk, talk, talk based on the expectation that we will be ignorant enough to mistake their government for our government, and their government's debts for our debts, and allow the Interlopers to use deceptively similar names to gain access to our credit and control our assets without even the nicety of a viable formal contract.

If the freedom of speech be taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.George Washington

Living in a representative republic means that each person has the right to take a stand for what they think is right, whether that means marching outside the halls of government, wearing clothing with provocative statements, or simply holding up a sign.

Thats what the First Amendment is supposed to be about.

Yet through a series of carefully crafted legislative steps and politically expedient court rulings, government officials have managed to disembowel this fundamental freedom, rendering it with little more meaning than the right to file a lawsuit against government officials.

In the process, government officials have succeeded in insulating themselves from their constituents, making it increasingly difficult for average Americans to make themselves seen or heard by those who most need to hear what we the people have to say.

Indeed, President Trumpalways keen to exercise his free speech rights to sound off freely on any topic that strikes his fancyhas not been as eager to protect the First Amendment rights of his fellow citizens to speak freely, assemble, protest and petition ones government officials for a redress of grievances.

Not that long ago, in fact, Trump suggested that the act of protesting should be illegal.

The morality of atheists "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

That atheists can be virtuous is so obvious that it is not something that needs to be stated. But we know that it was not always thought so, especially in early modern times. And even now, we often hear the specious argument being advanced that since god is the source of moral values, an atheist cannot be expected to have any. I wont even bother to respond to that silly argument. But I came across this interesting article by Michael Hickson, a professor of philosophy, who describes the evolution of attitudes towards atheists.

For centuries in the West, the idea of a morally good atheist struck people as contradictory. Moral goodness was understood primarily in terms of possessing a good conscience, and good conscience was understood in terms of Christian theology. Being a good person meant hearing and intentionally following Gods voice (conscience). Since an atheist cannot knowingly recognise the voice of God, he is deaf to Gods moral commands, fundamentally and essentially lawless and immoral. But today, it is widely if not completely understood that an atheist can indeed be morally good.

Hickson says that a Huguenot philosopher and historian Pierre Bayle (1647-1706) whom I had not heard of before was instrumental in changing that belief. In his book Various Thoughts on the Occasion of a Comet (1682), Bayle began with an observation that would be highly controversial for that time.

It is no stranger for an atheist to live virtuously than it is strange for a Christian to live criminally. We see the latter sort of monster all the time, so why should we think the former is impossible?

Bayle argued people do not act on the basis of their principles or theories. They are instead motivated by passions and that this is the great equalizer. Pride, self-love, the desire for honour, the pursuit of a good reputation, the fear of punishment, and a thousand customs picked up in ones family and country, are far more effective springs of action than any theoretical beliefs about a self-created being called God, or the First Cause argument.

Bayles pessimism reaches its pinnacle in a thought experiment involving a visit from an alien species. Bayle claims that it would take these aliens less than 15 days to conclude that people do not conduct themselves according to the lights of conscience. In other words, very few people in the world are, properly speaking, morally good. So atheists are merely no worse than religious believers, and on the surface they might even appear morally superior. While this is less ambitious than claiming that atheists can be completely virtuous, it i...

this encounter I found the most impressing. It was a really large dragonfly, just sitting on a mossy patch of sidewalk in the botanical garden of my University. She did not mind me in the slightest and I could take pictures from a few centimetres away. 

She did stick her abdomen in the moss repeatedly, so maybe she layed eggs? There was a pond-flowerbed maybe 20 cm away.

The finger is for size, I did not touch her.

As you can see in picture 11, it is a beauty and a beast (if you happen the be a insect)!

Use of Ricin: Is This Amateur Hour? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Recent incidents have brought up the subject of the biological toxin known as ricin as a possible terrorist weapon. A Utah man, one William Clyde Allen III, was arrested by the FBI for having sent letters laced with ricin to the U.S. Secretary of Defense and the Chief of Naval Operations. In June of 2018, a plot involving ricin was foiled in Germany by authorities. Ricin has a long history of attempted use as a weapon, although the large majority of instances have been unsuccessful. As this particular biological threat keeps reappearing, this post is intended to provide an overview of ricin and the threat it poses.

What is ricin?

Ricin is a toxin a poisonous substance created in nature. It is naturally occurring and is found in castor beans and it takes its name from the botanical name (ricinus communis) of the castor bean plant. Ricin can be found as a byproduct of the manufacture of castor beans. In fact, the mash that is leftover after processing castor beans has a reasonably high ricin content. Ricin is something called a lectin which means that it is a protein that binds with carbohydrates.

Ricin is extremely poisonous in animals. It acts by interfering with protein synthesis. The human body is constantly assembling things out of amino acids, and starts to malfunction if this action is interfered with. Even a small amount of ricin will cause a lot of interference. Those of a scientifically curious bent can dig into the biological and chemical actions of ricin in a much deeper way here.

In its pure form, ricin is a powder. Ricin can be injected, inhaled, and absorbed through the eyes. Unlike nerve agents, Ricin does not readily absorb through the skin, so merely handling the powder is not as dangerous as breathing it or ingesting it. However, the likely lethal doses for humans (discussed here) vary widely depending on the route of exposure.

Theres a wide margin of error here as this is mostly extrapolated from animal studies.  Scientists have estimated LD50 doses a dose that would kill half of those exposed. Injected, estimates are around 1 to 1.75 micrograms per kilogram of body weight. Inhaled, the amount is around 21 to 45 micrograms per kg of body weight. To put that it laymans terms, thats quite poisonous. Via ingestion, however, ricin is literally thousands of times less toxic, and widely variable. In food or drink, it would be 1 to 20 milligrams per kg of body weight. This could easily be the equivalent of severa...

What it feels like as a small business owner staring into the face of Brexit "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Jonny McCormick is the Director of Rosseau Ltd and runs a podcast called Spoke. 

Im an eternal optimist. I always think things are going to go my way that the chips will fall in my favour. The few times Ive played the lottery Ive been convinced Im going to win. Every time Im boarding an international flight I think Im going to be bumped up to First Class. I remember the day before the 2016 Presidential election saying that there was absolutely no way that Donald Trump would even get within shouting distance of the presidency. There was a similar story on the eve of the UK EU referendum. I was a Remainer and I remember going to bed that evening and having a brief conversation with my wife. She had expressed some concerns which I immediately dismissed (that should have been a warning sign!) I said that there was NO WAY we would be leaving the EU. I wasnt even remotely worried about it. I think I actually said to a colleague earlier that week that it would even be close like 70/30 in favour of remain. I guess what Im trying to say is that despite all of this optimism Im often wrong but Im an optimist nonetheless.

However, when it comes to leaving the EU Im struggling to hold on to any modicum of optimism. Is there any? If so, please let me know I could do with the boost of hope. If I was still working for a large corporate organisation like I have in the past I might have been less concerned about Brexit and what it means, but since starting a business just over a year ago things feel very uncertain.

Dont get me wrong this isnt some sort of doomsday approach to Brexit Im not saying that come the end of March the bottom is going to fall out of our economy and there will be no government stability. But, what I am saying is that we just dont know and thats almost worse. When you dont know what the outcome will be its really hard to make plans. For businesses that export its clear that theyll need to plan some contingencies but for a small business thats just considering what to do next to expand their business or thinking about where they can invest some of their capital its really hard to know what to do. I know this is something Im struggling with and Id bet Im not alone.

Theres lots of thought leaders, companies, policy agencies and third sector organisations who are trying to help people navigate the uncertainty and theyre doing a good job. But, this becomes increasingly difficult when the government and our politicians cant agree on a plan. Clandestine deals, secret handshakes and midnight negotiations might be good for holding together a tenuous power-base but it doesnt help small business owners deal with the uncertainty that is growing day-by-day.

So, what do you think? What would you say to a small or medium sized business owner? Are they right to be cautious and wait unt...

Sen. Warren Releases DNA Test Results: She Does Have American Indian Blood "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Senator Elizabeth addresses National Congress of American Indians in Washington, D.C. in February 2018. Native News Online photograph by Levi Rickert.

Published October 15, 2018

BOSTON The Boston Globe reports on Monday that Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) took a DNA test and an anaylsis by a renowned expert from Stanford University confirms Warren does indeed have American Indian blood running through her veins.

The analysis was completed by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a genius grant, for his work on tracking population migration via DNA analysis, according to the Boston Globe.

Warren released the results to the Boston Globe on Sunday and will release more information today, Monday, Octber 15, 2018.

Warren has been the fodder of the GOP who claim Warren used her status as an American Indian to gain preferential treatment in her academia career. Donald Trump mocks Warren during his rallies around the country. Trump calls her Pocahontas in a mocking and disrespectful manner. He even inappropriately did so in an Oval Office ceremony while recognizing the contributions of Navajo Code Talkers last November.

Warren addressed the general assembly of the National Congress of American Indians in February 2018 in Washington, D.C., where she told the assembled the story of being American Indian passed down the generations.

A statement requested by Native News Online from Senator Warrens Washington Senate office has not been responded to as of press time.

Hah! Pocahontas Warren Wants President Trump to Pay $1 Million for her 1/1024 Indian Heritage! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Elizabeth Warren is very concerned that Americans will not approve of her dishonest scheme to leapfrog over competitors during her academic career.

Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority Native American to get ahead in her career.

On Monday Senator Warren released a DNA study where she claims she is 1/512th 1/1024th Native American.
The AP reported:

Responding to years of derision by President Donald Trump and other critics, Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday released a report on a DNA analysis that provides strong evidence she does, in fact, have Native American heritage.

The analysis on the Massachusetts Democrat was done by Stanford University professor Carlos D. Bustamante. He concluded Warrens ancestry is mostly European but says the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.

Bustamante, a prominent expert in the field of DNA analysis, determined Warrens pure Native American ancestor appears in the range of six to 10 generations ago.

But if her ancestor is 10 generations back, that could mean shes just 1/512th Native American, according to the report . That could further excite her critics instead of placating them.

UPDATE The Globe later issued a correction The DNA test revealed that Elizabeth Warren is not 1/512 Native American, shes 1/1,024. Thats 0.0009765625.

Now this

Warren believes her private DNA test results earns her a $1,000,000 reward from President Trump.

Opel diesel pollution scandal in Germany "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This video says about itself:

Opel reported to have manipulated diesel car exhaust emissions | DW | 14.07.2018

Germanys Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) has been testing Opel vehicles in recent months, according to a report to be published in a Sunday newspaper. According to the report, the KBA found indications that Opel has manipulated exhaust emissions in some diesel vehicles and that nitrogen oxide emissions were more than 10 times higher than permitted. Worldwide, about 60,000 cars are affected, including diesel versions of the Cascada, Insignia and Zafira models.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Diesel scandal in Germany now also leads to Opel

The authorities in Germany have raided car manufacturer Opel on suspicion of manipulating test results for diesel cars. Car manufacturers such as Volkswagen, Audi and Mercedes were previously involved in the scandal.

In the diesel cars of those manufacturers, fraudulent software was installed on a large scale. With the help of the software, the emission of harmful substances in tests seemed more favourable.

According to the German newspaper Bild, this is about 95,000 Opel diesel cars that meet the Euro-6 standard. These were the models Insignia, Za...

Corruption corrodes Kurdish education "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Quality education from the outset can eradicate corruption, guarantee peaceful coexistence, and bring about social and economic justice.

Posters of candidates from different political parties are seen in Erbil of Kurdistan, Iraq, on Sept. 11, 2018. Picture by Yasser Jawad/Xinhua News Agency/PA Images. All rights reserved. Every year, thousands of parents make a lot of sacrifice and spend their lifetime fortunes so that their children can get into good schools and universities. Thousands of high school graduates passionately get admission in public and private universities. But after four years of studying, many of them end up unemployed and jobless. This reflects a misallocation of their incomes, time, energy, and age. Meanwhile, the KRG Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and the Ministry of Education have failed to tackle issues of overcrowded classrooms, outdated curriculums, and favouritism.

In 2017 in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, more than ten thousand students dropped out of school in the city of Sulaimani alone, mostly due to economic problems. Out of that number seven thousand are male and 3 thousand are female. Among those, high school students constitute the lions share. According to information provided by the Sulaimani Education Directorate, in 2017 and due to austerity measures by the Kurdistan Regional Government, 1356 teachers quit and asked for unpaid leave in order to find other work.

University students are also leaving their universities and heading mostly to Europe since programs do not correspond to the demands of today in the fields of science and technology. UNIDOs survey shows that unemployment in the Kurdistan region stands at 24% for men and 69% for w...

Khashoggi was a rather shady guy. A journalist who was also an operator for Saudi and U.S. intelligence services. He was an early recruit of the Muslim Brotherhood:

Khashoggis intellectual interests were shaped in his early 20s when he studied in the United States and was also a passionate member of the Muslim Brotherhood. The brotherhood was a secret underground fraternity that wanted to purge the Arab world of the corruption and autocratic rule it saw as a legacy of Western colonialism.

Khashoggi helped in the U.S./Saudi/Pakistani project to destabilize Afghanistan. He met and interviewed Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan and Sudan. The man with the RPG in the upper left picture is Jamal Khashoggi himself.Recently Khashoggi started a number of projects that reek of preparations for a CIA controlled color-revolution in Saudi Arabia:..None of the protagonists of this geopolitical drama deserve any pity.

The Ecuadorian government has decided to partly restore communications for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. They were cut in March, denying him access to the internet or phones and limiting visitors to members of his legal team. He has been living inside Ecuadors embassy in London for over six years. The Ecuadorian government said in March it had acted because Mr Assange had breached a written commitment made to the government at the end of 2017 not to issue messages that might interfere with other states. Wikileaks said in a statement: Ecuador has told WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange that it will remove the isolation regime imposed on him following meetings between two senior UN officials and Ecuadors President Lenin Moreno on Friday.

Swedes mock police campaign asking criminals to 'stop shooting' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In order to make criminals think twice before pulling the trigger, the Swedish Police Authority together with the City of Malm and the Swedish Prison and Probation Service have presented a new project called "Stop Shooting," prompting the mockery of fellow Swedes. The new Swedish police initiative, intended to put an end to shooting sprees, has become a laughing stock among local internet users. Wisecrackers have compared it to a previous campaign to stop sexual harassment, in which girls were handed out "don't paw me" bracelets, which also prompted widespread ridicule and doubt. According to a police press release, the initiative is based on the Group Violence Intervention (GVI) strategy borrowed from the US, where, officials claim, it achieved positive results. It was partly credited with a drop in the murder rate among young people in Boston, which fell 63 percent. Now, the Swedish authorities hope it will help alleviate the situation in Malm.

Maybe Santa will bring me some high end optical gear for Christmas this year "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I admit, I drooled a little bit: HHMI has developed this cool gadget for imaging embryos. Its got everything: a culture chamber for mouse embryos, the latest light-sheet imaging tech, and fancy digital processing so no matter how the embryo rolls or drifts, it realigns the image. Its been built by Phillip Keller, who did some amazing work with visualizing zebrafish.

Until now, the best views of living embryos came from fish and flies. A decade ago, Keller and colleagues developed the first digital embryo of the zebrafish, a kind of see-through, striped minnow often studied by scientists.

Fish embryos have the advantage that theyre shaped more like a ribbon draped over a ball of yolk, which means you can almost ignore one dimension. Mice start out sort of 2-dimensional too, but are eventually shaped like little balls with all kinds of movement in 3 dimensions over time. Im finding that spider embryos are similarly obnoxiously thick. But look at what this machine can do!

Also, amazingly, theyre giving it all away for free. The software is all downloadable, along with plans for building the scope (building one from scratch is still out of my budget, though), and they offer free access to the instrument out at Janelia Farm. Maybe someday Im still working on just getting reliable embryo production and am thinking about some basic genetics, and years from now when Im ready to do some advanced digital imaging, maybe theyll come in boxes of Cracker Jack.

Or better yet, some of my students will move on to do it for me.

Anti-progressivism: a ghost that haunts Latin America "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Anti-progressivism is not restricted to Brazil. It is expanding throughout the region and putting at risk the democratic advances of the last decades. Espaol

Image: Nueva Sociedad. All Rights Reserved.

As a foreign correspondent put it, on October 7th, the first round of elections in Brazil were won by an authoritarian, racist, machista, homophobic politician: someone who embodies the most regressive values is hoping to become the next president of Brazil.

He ended up with a higher number of votes than anticipated by the polls, snatched a victory in the first round and painted almost the whole country - except for the northeast with his colours.

Brazil and Latin America are facing a new scenario that is no longer just the end of the progressive cycle and its replacement by right or center-right forces within the framework of democracy, but rather a shift of the political boundaries towards new ground: the potential triumph in the second round of a candidate who, through a campaign full of Bibles and bullets, openly vindicates the dictatorship, flaunts violence, and openly despises all the values underlying the democratic system.

He is not just "another Trump". He is a candidate with fascist overtones in a country much less institutionally solid than the United States, in which political violence is already high.

The results of October 7 expand the already existing parliamentary BBB bloc (Ox, Bible, and Bullet, in reference to landowners, Evangelical priests, and former members of the security forces) to a hitherto unknown dimension. As a journalist fromEl Pas says, Bolsonaro's "B" ended up framing the other three - and left them at the gates of power.

Question 1, a measure on the ballot in November, proposes universal home health care for all Maine residents, to be paid for by a tax on people making more than $128,400 a year. Opponents of the proposal say that the program would be too costly; supporters say it could radically change the lives of people living with disability or serious illness. Eligibility for the program would depend on daily needs, rather than on a medical diagnosis. Maine residents who cannot complete at least one daily living activity, such as bathing, cooking or walking, would be able to receive help in a variety of forms.

Muslim Cab Driver Shouting Allah! Beats 62 Year-Old Jewish Man in Brooklyn Street (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A 62-year-old Jewish man was severely beaten in the street on Sunday morning on his way to synagogue.

A Muslim cab driver stopped his vehicle and beat Lipa Schwartz in the street.
The Muslim was shouting, Allah! as he beat the Jewish man!


The beating only stopped after a second Jewish man came to the rescue.

The Daily Mail reported:

A 62-year-old Jewish man claims his attacker repeatedly shouted Allah as he beat him in the middle of the road in Brooklyn, New York Sunday morning.

Lipa Schwartz was on his way to synagogue when livery driver Farrukh Afzal, 37, battered him until another Hasidic man came to the rescue.

All of a sudden boom! I tried to protect myself, run away. I fell. He come again on me, Schwartz told ABC7 Eyewitness News.

He explained to Boro Park 24 that In that instant I saw death for my eyes but ultimately felt he should fight back and wrestle myself out of this attack.

The Borough Park neighborhood incident was captured on surveillance camera and shows the Church Avenue Car Service worker delivering blows to the victim who was left with cuts to the side of his face and head.

He then chased the man who tried to help and was arrested at the scene.

Schultz was taken to Maimonides Medical Center for the minor injuries.

That $3 Trillion-A-Year Clean Energy Transformation? Its Already Underway. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

To keep global warming in check, the world will have to invest an average of around $3 trillion a year over the next three decades in transforming its energy supply systems, a new United Nations climate science report says. It won't be cheap, but it's also a change that's already underway. Much of that investment is money that would be spent on energy systems anyway. Instead of continuing to invest it in fossil fuel-based energy that worsens global warming and can harm human health, the report provides a pathway for shifting those investments to clean energy. The landmark report, released Oct. 8 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), sums up years of research into the risks to people and ecosystems if global temperatures rise 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial times, and it looks at how to stop that from happening.

The intensity of the devastation is difficult to overstate, if not impossible. We caught a glimpse of the future this week in the Florida panhandle. And the future is bleak.

Over and over, we found ourselves saying, Weve never seen anything like this. We watched U.S. Customs and Border Patrol hoard food and water in an Altha, FL warehouse swarming with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents lying in wait to kidnap and deport undocumented migrants who were desperate enough to seek supplies. We fought through roadways burdened with debris to access rural communities where folks are literally trapped inside their homes without food or water while the Florida police stand around arbitrarily blocking traffic with squad cars, pussyfooting around with their hands in their pockets.

Russian Collusion is a Red Herring While a Fourth Reich Rises "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As the 2018 U.S. midterm elections approach, there is still no evidence of collusion between the campaign of President Donald J. Trump and the Russian government after nearly two years of inquiry. Thus far in the Department of Justices investigation led by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, only a trail of corruption involving Trump associates has been discovered. None of their wrongdoings connect to the Russian nationals also indicted in the probe, including the illicit lobbying by former campaign chairman Paul Manafort in Ukraine which actually went against Russias interests on behalf of the EU. One can anticipate that more misdeeds by his cronies will be uncovered given that corruption in Washington grows on trees, some of which may even implicate Trump himself. However, if there were anything incriminating at the level of high treason, the likelihood that it wouldnt have been unearthed already after such an exhaustive inquest relying on splitting hairs for indictments is slim.

The Kremlin has also fulfilled the need of a scapegoat across the Atlantic for the UKs Brexit referendum. Mueller has examined emails from the shadowy British consulting firm Cambridge Analytica, but seemingly only to scrutinize whether they contain evidence of intrigue between Trump and Russia. The UK-based voter profiling company, chaired by former Trump campaign and Breitbart CEO Stephen K. Bannon and owned by the mysterious right-wing billionaire Robert Mercer, provided services for both the Trump and Brexit campaigns using the collected data of more than 80 million Facebook users for electoral engineering. After the scandal broke, the firm was suspended by Facebook and then reported to have shut its doors. It quickly came to light that the company had merely re-branded itself under the handle Emerdata Ltd., now under the management of Mercers daughters Rebekah and Jennifer. It is even operating out of the same headquarters in London and although it is still under federal investigation, no criminal charges appear imminent against its previous incarnation. Cambridge Analytica denies breaking any laws but it is widely believed to have done so by electoral watchdog groups. Have there been no legal proceedings because the DOJ is prioritizing finding connections between Trump and Moscow?

The Washington Posts Troubling Endorsement for Maryland Governor "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ben Jealous, the Democratic candidate to be Marylands governor, is hoping to pull off a big upset in the November midterm elections against Republican incumbent Gov. Larry Hogan. If he wins, Jealous will be the states first African-American governor, and just the third elected African-American governor in the country. (Other 2018 gubernatorial candidates with the same potential to break that racial barrier include Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia, who would be the first-ever black female governor if she wins.)

Those who believe in the myth of the liberal media might assume that the Washington Post would support a progressive who backs policies such as Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage and legalization of marijuana. In fact, the paperthe most influential news outlet in much of Marylandseems to have an axe to grind with Jealous, and has instead chosen to support Hogan for the governors race. As Pete Tucker at CounterPunch (8/31/189/18/1810/8/18) has explained, the Post has opposed Jealous at every turn.

Most of the papers criticisms relate to what it depicts as Jealouss spendthrift economic policies. Last year, the Post editorial board (10/29/17) called Jealouss education policy a gigantic giveaway, a promise of free lunches that would blow a Chesapeake Bay-sized hole in the state budget. In July (7/19/18), it defined the race between Hogan and Jealous as a stark contrast between centrist or liberal, questioning whether the latters soak the rich agenda was implementable, wise or remotely bipartisan. Jealouss policies in support of raising teacher wages and advancing universal pre-K were called pricey, because they would raise taxes on the One Percent in Montgomery County, the states largest and richest county.

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The Mueller investigation is criminal and unconstitutional.  Jim Hoft, the Gateway Pundit, introduced Gateway Pundit guest writer and brother, Joe Hoft, and attorney John Schlafly, from the Schlafly Report, at the Gateway Eagle Council in September to discuss the Mueller witch hunt.

More than ten reasons that the Mueller investigation is unconstitutional or criminal were presented.  This short video (28 mins)  is an excellent compilation of reasons that the Mueller investigation never should have been set up and should be shut down now.

A post we shared earlier in 2018 with an inventory of 10 the reasons the Mueller investigation is unconstitutional was linked to by the Drudge Report.

Here is our list

1 No Crimes identified

2 Scope of Special Counsel too wide open

3 4 Mueller and his teams known conflicts of interest

5 Exceeds scope of Sessions recusal

6 A Special Counsel cannot be a substitute AG

7 Rosenstein cannot monopolize supervision of all of Muller actions

8 Rosenstein doesnt have authority over tax crimes

9 Rosenstein created secret inquisitor

10 Special counsel was not necessary

Below is our discussion on the topic

Also, listen as Jim discusses how his mothers prayers helped him and his brother Joe overcome obstacles and thrive to the point where they are today.

Rosensteins Mueller investigation is criminal and unconstitutional.  It was not legitimate in its creation and should be shut down now.

Meet Ten Corporate Giants Helping Israel Massacre Gaza Protesters "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NEW YORK  As Israeli soldiers gun down unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in the Great March of Return, their lethal operations depend on an array of contractors and suppliers, many of them companies based outside Israel. The Israeli military relies on a network of international companies, supplying everything from sniper rifles to tear gas, to carry out its massacres of protesters in Gaza, Tom Anderson, a researcher for Corporate Occupation, told MintPress News. These companies are knowingly supporting war crimes, and are complicit in state-orchestrated murder.

Angered By Saudi Plan to Purchase Russian S-400, Trump Admin Exploiting Khashoggi Disappearance to Force Saudis to Buy American "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ISTANBUL The disappearance and alleged murder of Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi continues to strain relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia. On Saturday, President Donald Trump warned the Saudis of severe punishment if the Saudi government was found to have been responsible for the journalists alleged murder.

The Saudi government has vocally denied any involvement even though Khashoggi disappeared within the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and responded to Trumps threats by vowing an even stronger response if the Gulf monarchy is ultimately targeted by the United States. The exchange of threats caused Saudi stocks to sustain their biggest one-day loss since 2016 when trading opened and has brought the upcoming three-day Future Investment Initiative (FII) in Saudi Arabia much unwanted negative publicity.

However, there is considerable evidence pointing to the fact that the U.S. response to the Khashoggi affair is likely to be determined, not by any Saudi government responsibility for Khashoggis fate, but instead whether or not the Saudis choose to follow through with their promise to purchase the $15 billion U.S.-made THAAD missile system or it cheaper, Russia-made equivalent, the S-400. According to reports, the Saudis failed to meet the deadline for their planned THAAD purchase and had hinted in late September that they were planning to buy the S-400 from Russia instead.

While the U.S. response to the alleged murder of the Saudi journalist is being cast as a U.S. government effort to defend press freedom and finally hold the Saudi government to account for its long litany of human-rights abuses, there is every indication that the U.S. is not in fact seeking to punish the Saudis for their alleged role in Khashoggis apparent murder but instead to punish them for...

Belarus After Lukashenko: The Next Ukraine? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Summary

Since gaining independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, Belarus has experienced the uninterrupted rule of President Aleksandr Lukashenko. Under his authoritarian yet stable leadership, the country pursued an isolationist policy and refused steps toward integration with Western Europe. At the same time, it maintained a pro-Russian attitude, even though it retained its autonomy and never became a satellite state dependent on Moscows will.  But Lukashenko will not be president forever. The day will come when he either decides to abandon his post, is physically unable to continue, or simply passes away. And when that day arrives, Belarus will find itself at a crossroad in both domestic and international politics. For its own safety and stability, the country will need to maintain a delicate equilibrium between the West and Russia. If it fails to do so, it may trigger an intervention from its powerful eastern neighbor and become the next Ukraine.

 

Background

With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Belarus gained its independence. But unlike other post-Soviet states, independence did not mean democratization. It wasnt long before Aleksandr Lukashenko took a central role in the countrys national politics. After being elected for the first time in 1994, his mandate was renewed with a sweeping majority in each successive election. Though formally a Republic, Belarus quickly devolved into an authoritarian system, with fundamental powers concentrated in the presidents hands and the parliament dominated almost exclusively by the ruling party. To this day there is no serious political opposition; the police actively suppress activists and rival groups; and elections are neither free nor impartial.

Construction Cranes Versus Hurricanes "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When engineers are designing buildings, bridges, or other large construction projects, a lot of thought is given to the environment. Some of these considerations might seem obvious, like designing a skyscraper in San Francisco to tolerate earthquakes, building a stadium in New York City to hold up not only its own weight but the weight of several feet of snow on the roof, or constructing bridges in any coastal area to be able to tolerate salt spray. Not everything is this straightforward, though. Not only do the structures themselves have to tolerate the environmental conditions they are in, but the equipment that is used to build them must tolerate these conditions as well, specifically the large cranes that are often semi-permanently attached to their construction sites.

Perhaps the most extreme example of this in recent memory was during Typhoon Manghut as it hit Hong Kong. There were several large construction cranes that didnt fare too well with the high winds. At least one toppled as a result and catching the free-spinning of another on video is more than enough to make you gasp. Other videos of construction cranes surfaced from this typhoon showing some concerning, but surprisingly well-designed, emergency operation of the same type of crane.

The Cranes that Build Tall Buildings

Before digging into the considerations for extreme weather, its worth discussing some of the different types of cranes that might be found on a construction site. The large cranes used to construct skyscrapers (and the ones seen in various states of distress in the linked videos) are known as tower cranes. These are fixed to a concrete base specifically built to hold the crane during the course of construction. Once the base is complete, the parts of the crane are lifted by a lighter-duty crane and assembled one section at at time. Parts of the mast may also be fixed to the lower parts of the building for added strength. These cranes commonly have a fixed jib (the horizontal part at the top that holds the counterweight and the payload) with a rolling trolley. Other cranes at the site may have luffing jibs that can move up and down, and some cranes are mobile and can be disassembled onto a truck for quick and easy movement from site to site.

At sites with many tower cranes operating simultaneously, they are all built at different heights in order to keep the jibs...

State violence and the illusions of modernity in Egypt "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The constant state of denial that is a feature of the urban middle class and the regime is a necessity to maintain a deeply paradoxical ideological construct.

US first lady Melania Trump (L) meets with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Egyptian first lady Entissar Mohameed Amer at the Presidential Palace. Picture by Egyptian Presidency/dpa/PA Images. All rights reserved. Mass repression in Egypt and the use of state violence has been growing since the coup of 2013. It was inaugurated with a series of massacres committed by the Egyptian security forces against the supporters of the deposed President, Mohamed Morsi, the most infamous of which is the Rabaa massacres, where , at least, 817 protestors were killed in the worst incident of state violence in modern Egyptian history.

This wave of repression would later expand to include members of all different parts of the political spectrum, including liberal, leftist and secular activists and bloggers, as well as, non-political citizens that happened to be in the wrong place and the wrong time. This has swelled the prison population to almost 60,000 political prisoners. This is coupled with mass forced disappearances, and what appears to be clear evidence of extra-judicial killings in Sinai and the use of heavy weaponry in civilian areas, which leads to heavy casualties among the local population.

Interestingly, even though state violence has becomes a permanent feature of the lives of many Egyptians, the government and many of its urban middle class supporters have gone to considerable length to deny the existence of this phenomenon.

Those denials were not only aimed at the international community, as one would expect autocratic regimes to do, but it also includes denials targeted at the local population, mots notably the literate urban middle class, as one can disti...

Canadian studies prompt researcher to voice grave concerns "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Last week three new studies were published on fluoride adding more weight to an already overwhelming body of evidence that fluoridation is not safe.

I have grave concerns about the health effects of fluoride said Ashley Malin, lead author of the Canadian Fluoride-Thyroid study and a researcher at the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Published in Environmental International, the study found that the thyroid stimulating (TSH) hormone of pregnant Canadian women with low iodine was increased by fluoride. High TSH levels indicates the thyroid is not working properly. Hypothyroidism is known to cause depression, anxiety and obesity.

A second study, published in Environmental Health Perspectives, found that most fluoride exposure for Canadians came from fluoridated drinking water and that pregnant women in fluoridated areas had nearly twice as much fluoride in their urine as pregnant women in non-fluoridated areas. The lead author of this study, an associate professor and researcher at York University, Christine Till, says I am certain the safety of fluoride ingestion has not been proven.

The third study, also published in Environmental International, found that children whose mothers were exposed to fluoride during pregnancy had higher rates of ADHD. This study, funded by the US Government, was carried out using the same data as the landmark IQ study, Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6-12 Years of Age in Mexico, published last year. It found IQ was reduced with increased fluoride exposure.

The fact that the Canadian women living in fluoridated areas have been found to have the same levels of fluoride as the women in Mexican, demonstrates the relevance of the IQ and ADHD studies to the Canadian population. Research in NZ shows women in fluoridated areas also have the same level as the Canadian women..New Zealanders are also known to be iodine deficient.

Japan Plans to Criminalize Pirate Link Sites, Up to Five Years in Jail for Operators "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For the past several months, authorities in Japan have been grappling with the thorny issue of online piracy. The country has attempted to deal with the issue previously but there now appears to be greater momentum.

Back in September an advisory panel for the Agency for Cultural Affairs recommended that pirate indexing sites (known locally as leech sites) should be outlawed. These platforms host no infringing content themselves but provide hyperlinks to content hosted elsewhere.

Unlike in Europe where such sites are illegal when they deliberately provide access to content on a for-profit basis, in Japan there is no law that specifically renders them illegal. An estimated 200 leech sites exist locally and plugging the legal loopholes could make a significant impact on piracy rates, the government believes.

The aim will be to criminalize the act of knowingly linking to copyrighted content, or linking to the same when site operators should reasonably be expected to know that the content is infringing. Copyright holders will be able to have such links taken down and when site operators fail to respond, hefty sentences will apply.

According to Mainichi, the proposals currently contain a recommendation for prison sentences of up to five years for the worst offenders. The publication notes that in October last year, the people behind Japans largest leech site were arrested on suspicion of copyright infringement but authorities were only able to take action due to parallel bootlegging offenses.

Earlier this year, ISPs NTT Communications Corp., NTT Docomo Inc. and NTT Plala Inc. voluntarily blocked access three sites identified by the government Mangamura, AniTube! and MioMio adding that more sites could be blocked upon request.

Oil priced $400 in yuan, Russian military base Saudi insider says kingdom mulls 30 anti-US moves "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If the US imposes sanctions on Saudi Arabia, it will stab its own economy to death the head of Al Arabiya said. Riyadh may become friends with Iran, trade its oil in yuan and invite the Russian military.
.

Saudi officials said they may retaliate against the US, if Washington delivers on a threat to impose sanctions over the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Turki Aldakhil, the General Manager of the Saudi international news network Al Arabiya, said Riyadh was considering some 30 moves that it may take in response to possible sanctions, and many of those he mentions seem pretty harsh.

.

In an op-ed published on Sunday, the insider said Saudi influence on the oil market alone puts it into position to badly hurt American interests. If the price of oil reaching $80 angered President Trump, no one should rule out the price jumping to $100, or $200, or even double that figure, he wrote, adding that Riyadh may start pricing its crude in Chinese yuan rather than US dollar, dealing a blow to its status as a world reserve currency.

.

The Saudis may make a geostrategic turn away from the US and towards its rival: China, Russia and Iran, Aldakhil added. No one can deny that repercussions of these sanctions will include a Russian military base in Tabuk, he said, referring to Saudi Arabias northwestern province located in a strategically valuable place near the Red Sea with its trade routes as well as Israel and Jordan.

As part of its possible rapprochement with Iran, Saudi Arabia would see Hamas and Hezbollah have turned from enemies into friends while at the same time stop exchanging intelligence with the US and its allies. At the moment information from the Saudis is contributing to the protection of millions of Westerners, he stressed.

Of course Saudi Arabia will no longer buy weapons from US manufacturers if sanctions are given the green light, Aldakhil predicted, adding that this would reduce foreign sales of US defense contractors by two thirds. American firms will also be barred from the Saudi markets, he added.

.

These are simple procedures that are part of over 30 others that Riyadh will implement directly, without flinching an eye if sanctions are imposed on it, according to Saudi sources who are close to the decision-makers, the report said.

Riyadh has many, many cards to play if its forced to retaliate against US....

The court's ruling, authored by Chief Justice Mary E. Fairhurst and issued on October 11, 2018, declared: "The death penalty, as administered in our state, fails to serve any legitimate penological goal; thus, it violates article I, section 14 of our state constitution."

All Eyes on HTS: Buffer Zone Deadline Passes for Al-Qaeda in Syria "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Yesterday, it was reported that the democracy-loving rebel terrorists fired munitions from the internationally agreed buffer zone in Idlib, Syria. This calculated move is sure tramp-up tensions in the region.

As AFP reported, the deadline passed on Monday without jihadists leaving the planned buffer zone, as set out under a Russian-Turkish deal.

Western and Gulf-backed terrorists were supposed to withdraw from the buffer zone as the final condition to implementing a Russian-Turkish deal to stave off a regime offensive on the northwestern region of Idlib.

Who is pulling the terrorist strings? Certainly, the U.S. benefits from a resumption of tensions because it will keep Syrian and Russian resources preoccupied in northwest while U.S. and its Kurdish SDF militants construct a de facto ISIS safe zone along the Syria-Iraq border. All of this only justifies Washingtons ongoing illegal occupation of northeastern Syria

HTS is likely to face the consequences of failing to withdrawal from buffer zone around Idlib.
HTS (formerly Nusra Front) is likely to face the consequences of failing to withdrawal from buffer zone around Idlib.

Middle East Eye reports

All eyes on HTS as the militant group fails to pull out but issues non-committal statement on Sochi plan

A deadline for all hardline rebels to leave a buffer zone in northern Syria passed on Monday, apparently without the withdrawal of the fighters in question.

The failure of all militant groups to leave the area puts question marks over a deal brokered by Russia and Turkey to avoid a bloody assault on the Syrian oppositions last redoubt in the country.

However, Turkish sources told Middle East Eye that the Russians, who back Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, were aware that the process of ridding the zone of hardliners may take longer than the agreed Monday deadline.

The key hardline group in question is Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), an alliance of rebel factions led by al-Qaedas former Syrian affiliate. According to Turkish sources, at least 1,000 of the 5,000 HTS militants thought to operate in the buffe...

Federal authorities would not need to first obtain a warrant, which rights groups say that authority could be easily abused, making it possible for Homeland Security and the Justice Department and its various law enforcement and immigration agencies to shoot down anyone's drone for any justifiable reason.

Syria-Israel Border Crossing at Golan Heights Reopens, UN Peacekeepers Return "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


UNDOF forces at Syrias Golan crossing (Image Source: Mato48)

This week, the Quneitra crossing in Syrians Golan Heights has been reopened, signaling the completion of logistical and security preparations at Syrias key border crossings, including the recent announcement by Jordanian and Syrian officials to reopen their crossing at Nassib.

This signals a boost for Damascus, as the Syrian flag was raised at the Quneitra crossing between, witnessed by a detachment of UN observers and prominent members of Druze community, the predominant population in the area, gathered near the crossing.

The key news here is the crossing between Syria and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights which can now facilitate UN observers who had fled and were kidnapped four years ago, as well as hit by mortar attacks in 2015 by Western and Gulf-backed terrorists there. United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) were established in 1974 by Security Council resolution 350 (1974) as part of a long-running armistice agreement between Syria and the illegally occupying Israeli forces.

If You Worry About Climate Change and Care About the Environment, Vote No on I-1631 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If you care about the environment, if you worry about global warming, and if this summer's smoke is of concern, you should vote against Washington State Initiative 1631.

If you are like me, you are worried about the impacts of increasing CO2 in the atmosphere.  Our climate models are emphatic that rising levels of greenhouse gases will warm our planet substantially during this century.   Here in the Pacific Northwest, our snowpack will decline and sea level will rise on the southern portion of our Pacific coastal zone.

And if you are like me, you found summer smoke two years in a road disturbing and worry that it will become an annual affair.


And perhaps you worry about the state of our waterways, the pollution of our Sound, or the decline of our signature Orcas.  So do I.

You want to do something to address our environment challenges.  You want action now,  not later.  I do too.

But if you care for the environment and if you want to see our nation take real steps to address global warming, you should vote no on I-1631, the Washington State carbon fee initiative.   

As I will describe below, I-1631 is a flawed, ineffective, and highly partisan initiative that does little to deal with increasing greenhouse gases.  An initiative that will line the pockets of special interest groups, do economic damage to our poorest citizens, and stand in the way of far more effective approaches.  And its proponents have been less than honest about the nature of this ballot measure.
So why should you vote NO on this initiative?

1.  Reason One:   There is No Concrete Spending Plan for Billions of Dollars

The state's Office of Financial Management estimates that I-1631 will bring in 2.3 billion dollars during the first five years, and tha...

Lera On Community Based Initiatives
New Dawn FM News

Community based programs to raise revenue within small rural communities can have a definitive impact on Bougainvilles economy.
Regional Member for Bougainville, Joe Lera says that only twenty percent of Bougainvilleans pay tax that contributes to Bougainvilles revenue.
Bougainvilles revenue at the moment stands at K20 million which is derived from cash crops and taxes collected from goods and services and income taxes.
Mr Lera says that encouraging rural based economies will also have an impact on the eighty percent in the rural areas who will be able to pay taxes.
He stressed that people in the rural areas must be empowered to participate in development and sustaining the political outcome of the referendum.
With an overwhelming number opting for independence creating a strong economic base for the Bougainville is a priority.
The ABG has so far banked on the mining industry to save it from its economic woes but mining remains a sensitive and unstable issue on Bougainville.
He says focus must be brought back to the basics like sports, arts and crafts and the agricultural sector to allow people to make something of themselves in society.

Taking advantage of legal differences in how passcodes are protected, US law enforcement have forced people to unlock their devices with not just their face but their fingerprints too. But still, in a set of presentation slides obtained by Motherboard this week, one company specialising in mobile forensics is telling investigators not to even look at phones with Face ID, because they might accidentally trigger this mechanism.

We had passcodes, then fingerprints, then faces, the evolution of biometric mechanisms used to unlock you phone. Will this evolution continue? Or is Face ID the final stop?

The huge blackout that may be deepening market turbulence "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Who turned out the lights? Heres a little-known fact: The biggest buyer of shares during the bull market hasnt been individual investors nor large institutions. Its been Corporate America itself.

 

Encouraged by low rates and record profits, US companies have bought back $4.3 trillion of their own stock since 2009, according to Yardeni Research. That enormous source of demandhas helped the S&P 500 to quadruple off its financial crisis low.
But what happens when stock buybacks get turned off?
To avoid tripping insider trading rules, companies typically avoid buyback shares during the two weeks prior to reporting earnings. Last weeks market storm the Nasdaqs worst week since March  occurred during the darkest part of these so-called blackout windows.
Right now, were pretty much at a trough in corporate liquidity, said Keith Parker, head of US equity strategy at UBS.
Parker said that previous market tailspins, including the scary sell-offs in February as well as the one in April, coincided with buyback blackouts. Almost to the day, he said.
Buybacks have been especially powerful lately. Flush with excess cash from tax cuts and the strong economy, US companies are on track to repurchase $1 trillion of stock this year for the first time ever, according to Goldman Sachs. Last month Goldman Sachs even warned that the looming blackout period posed a near-term risk to the market.
So are buyback blackouts causing the markets to nosedive? No. There needs to be a catalyst first. Last weeks tumble was triggered mostly by fears about spiking Treasury rates and the US-China trade war.

Now Saudi prince wants to buy Manchester United! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman is interested in buying out top English football club Manchester United as part of his ambitious drive to diversify the kingdoms ailing economy, new reports claim.

The British media reported Monday that the move will helps Saudi Arabias ruling family keep up with tiny Persian Gulf countries like Qatar and the United Arab Emirates which have made major investments in European football.

Qatari investors took over French giants Paris Saint-Germain in 2012 and have since spent over a billion dollars to help it return to its glory. Qatar will also host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Emirati billionaire Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, meanwhile, bought the city of Manchesters other major team, Manchester City, for 210 million in 2008. The investment has paid off for the wealthy sheikh as Forbes says the value of the club has since soared to over 2 billion in 2018.

To own Manchester United, however, the Salman family is required to pay a reported 4 billion to current American owner, the Glazer family.

The club has established long-term links with Riyadh.

Last year, for example, Manchester United signed a memorandum of understanding with Saudi Arabias General Sports Authority to help build a sustainable and thriving football sector for the kingdom.

On its website, the club states that the strategic partnership involves United lending its business and sporting expertise to clubs, sporting authorities and individuals in Saudi Arabia.

The partnership forms part of Saudi Vision 2030 the plan to diversify the Saudi economy and to develop its public sectors, announced last year by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, the website adds.

The Uniteds co-chairman, Avram Glazer, will travel to Saudi Arabia next week to take part in an investor conference dubbed Davos in the Desert.

Reports suggest that he would discuss the possible acquisition with bin Salman, although there is no official confirmation that the meeting would take place.

The perfect smoke screen?

Given that Riyadh is currently struggling with a deepening public relations crisis in the wake of its ongoing war against Yemen and the mysterious disappearance of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a news bomb as big as this seems to provide the Saudis with the perfect smoke screen to overcome the negative press.

Since rising to power last year, bin Salman has set out on a global charm offensive to lure in foreign investment and $4 billion sound like a small payment in exchange for the huge amounts of media coverage that it is guaranteed to buy for the kingdom.

U S going through re-alignment "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Realignment Is Underway

There are three reasons for the realignment that is already underway. First, the new demography of the United States is dramatically changing party identification and the current Republican Party doesnt look or think like the new America. Second, the Trump phenomenon has ruptured the Republican political brand and accelerated the partys fatal weaknesses with the expanding constituencies of this new America. Third, the coincidence of the 2020 decennial census and a presidential election will swell Democratic turnout for down ballot elections of Governors and state legislatures that will subsequently redistrict the House of Representatives for a decade.

Data on the American electorate since 1988 shows a dramatic demographic shift that has now reached critical mass: the white electorate has shrunk from 88% of overall turnout to an anticipated 69% this year. Blacks, Hispanics and Asians are expected to comprise 31% of the 2016 electorate, with Hillary Clinton expected to receive between 80-92% of the non-white vote. Voters under 30 have single digit support for the Republican ticket and single women are repudiating not only Trump, but traditional Republican ideology by dramatic margins. These increasingly powerful demographic constituencies identify and vote significantly Democratic, thus making a Republican national election victory even if Republicans had a strong, non-controversial candidate improbable.

The Republican Party conducted an autopsy after its 2012 defeat.

That RNC report concluded that the Party must reach out, pragmatically and symbolically, to blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and women. Yet, the only response by Republican State parties to these recommendations has been not to reach out to these growing constituencies, but rather to adopt voter suppression legislation to prevent them from voting. And as the Republican base of old white men dies off, the demographic base of the Democratic Party continues to attract the expanding constituencies of the new American electorate.

Global growth of GDP per working age person slightly outpaced its historical average and unemployment rates generally fell in the year under review. Perceptions of economic conditions, however, were defined by further falls in commodity prices, large swings in exchange rates and lower than expected headline global growth. These developments hint at a realignment of economic and financial forces that have unfolded over many years. In EME commodity exporters, the downturn in the domestic financial cycle mostly compounded the fall in export prices and currency depreciations, with economic conditions becoming weaker. In general, t...

Hah! Pocahontas Warren Releases Her Private DNA Analysis Claims She Is Around 1/512th Native American "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Elizabeth Warren is very concerned that Americans will not approve of her dishonest scheme to leapfrog over competitors during her academic career.

Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority Native American to get ahead in her career.

Warren is a fraud and she is concerned it may damage her chances of becoming the next US president.

In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American.

In 1998 Harvard bragged Elizabeth Warren, who is Native American, was their only minority tenured woman on staff.
Hat Tip Chris

A 1997 article in the Fordham Law Review described Warren as a Harvard law schools first woman of color.

The Politico reported:

Elizabeth Warren has pushed back hard on questions about a Harvard Crimson piece in 1996 that described her as Native American, saying she had no idea the school where she taught law was billing her that way and saying it never came up during her hiring a year earlier, which others have backed up.

But a 1997 Fordham Law Review piece described her as Harvard Law Schools first woman of color, based, according to the notes at the bottom of the story, on a telephone interview with Michael Chmura, News Director, Harvard Law (Aug. 6, 1996).

Obviously, Democrats are hoping to clean up Warrens many lies about her heritage and high cheekbones before the 2020 election comes around.

Jamal Khashoggi, who disappeared from the Saudi embassy in Istanbul 2 weeks ago and is presumed dead, is (or was) a Saudi journalist and author. His grandfather (of Turkish origin) married a Saudi woman and served as the personal physician to King Abdulaziz Al Saud, the founder of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He is the nephew of the late, high-profile Saudi arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, known for his part in the Iran-Contra scandal, and his cousin was Dodi Fayed, Princess Diana's paramour when the two were likely assassinated in a deliberate car crash in a Paris tunnel in 1997. Khashoggi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organisation that he praised in his recent columns in The Washington Post, along with the 'moderate rebels' in Syria. The Muslim Brotherhood exists to rid the Muslim world of Western influence and its adherents aspire to instil the Quran and the Sunnah as the "sole reference point for ordering the life of the Muslim family, individual, community and state"....

After Rahms Destruction, Can Chicago Creative A Cooperative Economy? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When Rahm Emanuel announced last month that he would not seek a third term as mayor of Chicago, he broke no hearts among people opposed to neoliberal privatization and the power of finance capital. In Chicago under Emanuel, as the editors of the 2016 anthology Neoliberal Chicago write, neoliberalism led officials to privatize everything from parking meters to schools, gut regulations and social services, and promote gentrification wherever possible. To take just one lurid example, Emanuels Chicago privatized janitorial services for our schools, organizer Amara Enyia told me, only to end up with rodent-infested schools, literally rats and mice running around in classrooms. Those schools had to be closed and cleaned. This is what happens when you privatize services.

Dummycrats Exposes the Exploitation of Blacks by the Democratic Party "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Across the nation on this fine night of October 15, 2018, there is a one night movie premiere at selected theaters and it is called Dummycrats. It is a movie created by two dissatisfied and former Democratic Party members, Diamond and Silk. This movie is only playing in specific locations, all at the same time across the country. America has only one day to see the movie and that day would be today, October 15, 2018.

Please look at the following movie trailer. You are looking at two conservative ladies who call themselves Diamond and Silk. They represent free-thinking, intelligent, freedom-loving Americans, only with a twist. Quite obviously they are Black. However, they are tired of being taken for granted by the Democratic Party.They refer often to the plantation politics of the Democratic Party that they feel has taken Black people for granted. Their views align somewhat with Kanye West who is protesting the fact that the left is trying to lock all Black people into one ideology, wealth redistribution. Diamond and Silk want freedom of choice, not a handout. They want opportunity, not a guarantee. The hard core nature of their message is softened by their amazing ability to make people laugh.

Diamond and Silk refuse to be told what to think by the plantation masters of the Democratic Party. Sixty years of promises have yielded nothing of substantial economic gain for Black Americans. Trump has accomplished more for Blacks economic recovery in two years than the Democratic Party since the Civil Rights movement began. For over three generations, Black people have pledged their support and undying loyalty to a political party that needs their collective votes in order to remain a viable political entity.

Artificial intelligence aids automatic monitoring of single molecules in cells "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

To understand the mechanisms by which molecules act in cells, or the effects of drugs on them, it would be ideal to be able to track individual molecules, including where in the cell they are located and what modifications they undergo when conditions in the cell change. However, this has proven difficult with existing technologies, particularly given the amount of time required to perform such monitoring.

A research team centered at Osaka University, in collaboration with RIKEN, has developed a system that can overcome these difficulties by automatically searching for, focusing on, imaging, and tracking single within living . The team showed that this approach could analyze hundreds of thousands of single molecules in hundreds of cells in a short period, providing reliable data on the status and dynamics of molecules of interest.

For the development of this method, reported in the journal Nature Communications, the team used an -based system, involving the training of to learn to focus correctly on a sample and to automatically search for cells, followed by the tracking of single fluorescently labeled molecules with a total internal reflection fluorescence microscope.

HOW ELIZABETH WARREN COULD TURN THE "POCAHONTAS" ATTACK BACK ON TRUMP "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This is big news for 2020:

Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that provides strong evidence" she had a Native American in her family tree dating back 6 to 10 generations....

The analysis of Warrens DNA was done by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a genius grant, for his work on tracking population migration via DNA analysis....

Bustamante calculated that Warrens pure Native American ancestor appears in her family tree in the range of 6-10 generations ago. That timing fits Warrens family lore, passed down during her Oklahoma upbringing, that her great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, was at least partially Native American.
This follows a September Boston Globe report that found no evidence of "affirmative action" hiring based on assertions of Native American ancestry in Warren's academic career.

I understand this response:



Yes, it is humiliating -- but Obama went on to win reelection in 2012 after releasing his birth certificate. It was worth doing.

Trump wasn't the first to attack Warren on this question -- Scott Brown did it when Warren ran against him in 2012, and Brown campaign operatives did "Indian war whoops" and "tomahawk chops" at a Brown rally that year.



Right-wing commentators called Warren Fauxcahontas, Lieawatha, and Sacaja-whiner during that race. A Mumbai-born right-wing troll named Shiva Ayyardurai is running against Warren in...

I Need Your Help to Report on Polands 100th National Independence Day "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On November 11, 2018, Poland will commemorate the 100th anniversary of its independence. After being partitioned and invaded by Austria, Prussia (later Germany), and Russia three times in the 18th century, Poles became slaves of these empires until the end of World War I, when all three of them collapsed (Austria, Russia) or were forcibly dismantled (Germany).

Not long after, Poland successfully defeated the Soviets in the Polish-Soviet War, in which the Bolsheviks sought to not only reconquer the Poles, but invade and impose communism on a weakened Europe. The Poles accomplished this feat despite barely existing as an independent nation and a lack of support from the West: pro-Soviet labor unions in Britain and France stopped the flow of supplies to Poland despite the governments of those countries pledging assistance.

While Poland would later be partitioned by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union during World War II and had communism imposed on it during the Cold War, it has since emerged as one of the strongest nations in Europe. Unaffected by the global recession ten years ago, its economy is on track to converge with Western Europes, buoyed by a nationalist government that has resisted the European Unions efforts to force them to take in Muslim rapefugees. Along with Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, Poland is part of the Visegrd Group, which forms the backbone of the anti-globalist resistance in Europe, and their success has helped inspire nationalist governments in Italy, Austria, and worldwide.

I want to travel to Warsaw next month and report on the National Independence Day celebrations. Every year, Poles hold a nationalist march commemorating their independence and their triumph over the Germans, the Russians, and the other nations who have tried to oppress them. Last years march was a major event, with hundreds of thousands attending.

The international fake news media tried to smear the march as a neo-Nazi event, even though it was a Polish march and many of the participants were carrying anti-Nazi signs. This years march will likely be the focus of even more attacks due to the increasing popularity of nationalist and populist parties worldwide. Additionally, Poland will be holding elections next year, and the globalists are eager to force the nationalist Law and Justice party out of power by any means necessary, much as theyre trying to do with Viktor Orbn and Fidesz in Hungary.

My plan is to attend the march and report on it through live streaming on my YouTube channel and writing articles on my blog. Due to the fact that Polands cost of livi...

From GM Potatoes to Glyphosate: Regulatory Delinquency and Toxic Agriculture "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Food and environment campaigner Dr Rosemary Mason has just produced the report Shockingly high levels of weedkiller found in popular breakfast cereals marketed for British children. In this 68-page document, she draws from new research in the UK that mirrors findings from the US about the dangerous levels of glyphosate found in food, especially products aimed at children (glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsantos weedicide Roundup). Readers can access this report here (which contains all relevant references).

Mason begins by reporting on research that significant levels of weedkiller were found in 43 out of 45 popular breakfast cereals marketed to US children. Glyphosate was detected in an array of popular breakfast cereals, oats and snack bars.

Tests revealed glyphosate was present in all but two of the 45 oat-derived products that were sampled by the Environmental Working Group, a public health organisation. Nearly three in four of the products exceeded what the EWG classes safe for children to consume. Products with some of the highest levels of glyphosate include granola, oats and snack bars made by leading industry names Quaker, Kelloggs and General Mills, which makes Cheerios.

Back in April, internal emails obtained from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed that scientists had found glyphosate on a wide range of commonly consumed food, to the point that they were finding it difficult to identify a food without the chemical on it. In response to these findings, however, The Guardian newspaper in the UK reported that there was no indication that the claims related to products sold outside the US.

In view of this statement by the Guardian, Mason was involved in sending samples of four oat-based breakfast cereals marketed for children in the UK to the Health Research Institute, Fairfield, Iowa, an accredited laboratory for glyphosate testing.

After testing the samples which were sent, Dr Fagan, the institutes director, said:

The levels consumed in a single daily helping of any one of these cereals, even the one with the lowest level of contamination, is sufficient to put the persons glyphosate levels above the levels that cause fatty liver disease in rats (and likely in people). (Access the Certificate of Analysis here.)

Just as concerning were results for two organic products from the US that were also tested....

Malloch: GLENN SIMPSON Is Still Propagating Propaganda "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Guest post by Ted Malloch author of The Plot to Destroy Trump

Glenn Simpson, head of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, doesnt want to testify before a House Committee.

He isnt taking the Fifth.

He is refusing to testify altogether.

He has something to hide.

He has been caught in probable perjury.

Simpson has lied before Congress before and he makes a living doing so to the press.

He should be held in Contempt of Congress.

Contempt of Congress is defined in statute, 2 U.S.C.A. 192, enacted in 1938, which states that any person who is summoned before Congress who wilfully makes default, or who, having appeared, refuses to answer any question pertinent to the question under inquiry shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a maximum $1,000 fine and 12 month imprisonment.

Who is this nefarious Simpson character, anyway?

In October 2015, with the 2016 election just over a year away, the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website, hires the American research firm Fusion GPS to conduct opposition research on Donald J. Trump and other Republican presidential candidates.

They call in one, yes, Glenn Simpson.

Why would a Republican-funded website be looking for dirt on their own nominees?

Well, Trump, as weve come to know, is no ordinary politician: Hes unpredictable, volatile, and shoots from the hip.

Unlike every other politician, hes anything but boringhes a showman.

And when a man like Trump throws his red hat into the ring of the biggest show on Earth, he is bound to be the star of the show.

And the star of the show is always subject to the most attack.

Even his Republican counterparts want dirt on him.

The world of conservative journalism exploded during the Obama years. They attacked everything he didfrom his birth certificate, to his health care plan, to his socialist outlook, to his anti-Israel Muslim- favoring foreign policy.

Online market for counterfeit goods in Russia has reached $1,5 billion "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Group-IB: The online market for counterfeit goods in Russia has reached $1,5 billion, while the number of phishing attacks has surpassed 1,200 daily

Group-IB, an international company that specialises in the prevention of cyber attacks, has estimated that online sales of counterfeit goods are now worth $1.5 billion. This information was first made public by experts from Group-IBs Brand Protection team at the CyberCrimeCon 2018 international cybersecurity conference.

According to Group-IB, the online market for counterfeit goods in Russia has increased by 23% in a year and totaled more than $1.5 billion in 2017, compared to $1.2 billion in 2016.  Fraudsters use their websites to sell household appliances and computer equipment, clothing and footwear, jewelry, accessories, cosmetics, medicinal products, and much more, often at hugely discounted prices up to 80% off. According to Group-IBs statistics, every fifth counterfeit product was bought online. On average, Russians spend $78 per year on counterfeit goods.

For large organisations, the actions of online fraudsters mean not only a direct loss in revenue, but also damaged customer loyalty, brand abuse, and fewer shoppers, says Andrey Busargin, Director of Brand Protection at Group-IB. It also leads to a decrease in what we call the psychological price, i.e. the cost that customers are willing to pay for a product from the official retailer. Around 64% of users stop buying a companys goods after a negative experience.

 Counterfeit goods are not the only threat to popular brands on the Internet. Scammers create fake websites of known brands, fraudulent promotional campaigns, and fake accounts on social media. In recent years, an often-used fraud method has been fake mobile applications: 36% of users are unable to distinguish between genuine and fake apps, and 60% of the latter request access to the users personal data. 

Fraudsters use various ways to deceive users: phishing websites, fake mobile apps, accounts and groups on social media. Phishing remains one of the most common...

Iran Nuclear Deal Breakdown: What Does It Mean for European Business? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as it is formally known, is the culmination of a decade of intensifying economic sanctions, diplomacy, and negotiations. The deal was finally agreed on 14 July 2015 in Vienna between Iran and major world powers: China, France, Germany, Russia, the EU, the UK and the United States. It was adopted unanimously by the United Nations Security Council on 20 July 2015 as Resolution 2231.

The deal trades a halt in Irans nuclear program, along with verification protocols, for relief from economic sanctions and opening to global trade. The Obama administration never fully relieved all US-imposed sanctions; most of the primary sanctions on Irans ballistic missile program and the US trade embargo remained in place.

Fast-forward to 8 May 2018 and President Trumps announcement that he will not sign the sanctions waiver. The US has decided to unilaterally reimpose economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic to be activated in two tranches, in August and November. The November round will hit Iranian oil exports, the lifeblood of the economy. This would be the second time Irans oil exports have been surgically targeted by US sanctions, the first being in 2010 under the Obama Administration, which was cited as a major factor in bringing Iran to the table on the nuclear deal. The reimposition of US sanctions has contributed to a slide in the Iranian rial, which has lost approximately two-thirds of its value against the US dollar this year.

 

The European Response

As recently as 6 August European Union Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini announced that the EU would update its Blocking Statute to protect European firms engaging in legitimate business with Iran, going as far as to encourage Europes small and medium enterprises to increase business with Iran, referring to the action as a security priority. The Blocking Statute is designed to protect European firms from the effects of extra-territorial sanctions imposed by the United States; that is, sanctions the US seeks to impose outside of its jurisdiction. The EU Blocking Statute has yet to be tested. Mogherini further stated that the remaining parties to the deal would commit to maintaining financial channels for the export of Iranian oil and gas. On 23 August, the EU commissioned its first round of financial support for Iran totaling EUR 18 million. This is part of a EUR 50 million package to support private enterprise in the country.

One of the key problems for the EU and European companies is their exposure to, and dependence on, the US dollar. The global financial system is based on the dollar and those...

Sears Files for Chapter 11 Amid Plunging Sales, Massive Debt "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NEW YORK Sears has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, buckling under its massive debt load and staggering losses.

Holdings will also close 142 unprofitable stores near the end of the year. Liquidation sales at these stores are expected to begin shortly. This is in addition to the previously announced closure of 46 unprofitable stores that is expected to be completed by November 2018.

The company, which started out as a mail order catalog in the 1880s, has been on a slow march toward extinction as it lagged far behind its peers and has incurred massive losses over the years. The operator of Sears and Kmart stores joins a growing list of retailers that have filed for bankruptcy or liquidated in the last few years amid a fiercely competitive climate. Some like Payless ShoeSource have had success emerging from reorganization in bankruptcy court but plenty of others havent, like Toys R Us and Bon-Ton Stores Inc. Both retailers were forced to shutter their operations this year soon after a Chapter 11 filing.

This is a company that in the 1950s stood like a colossus over the American retail landscape, said Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners, a retail consultancy. Hopefully, a smaller new Sears will be healthier.

Given its sheer size, Sears bankruptcy filing will have wide ripple effects on everything from already ailing landlords to its tens of thousands of workers.

Edward S. Lampert has stepped down from his role as CEO of the company, effective immediately. He will remain chairman of the board. The companys board has created an Office of the CEO, which will be responsible for managing day-to-day operations during this process.

The filing, which is happening ahead of the crucial holiday shopping season, comes after rescue efforts engineered by Lampert have kept it outside of bankruptcy court until now.

Lampert, the largest shareholder, has been loaning out his own money for years and has put together deals to prop up the company, which in turn has benefited his own ESL hedge fund.

Last year, Sears sold its famous Craftsman brand to Stanley Black & Decker Inc., following its earlier moves to spin off pieces of its Sears Hometown and Outlet division and Lands End.

In recent weeks, Lampert has been pushing for a debt restructuring and offering to buy some of Sears key assets like Kenmore through his hedge fund as a $134 million debt repayment comes due on Monday. Lampert personally owns 31 percent of the companys shares. His....

Brazils Military Poised to Amass Power After Three-Decade Wait "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

There are grim echoes in the 2018 election to the start of the military dictatorship that began in 1964.

By Bruce Douglas, Rachel Gamarski and Gabriel Shinohara and cross-posted from Bloomberg Quint

If ex-Army Captain Jair Bolsonaro wins the runoff vote against the Workers Partys Fernando Haddad on Oct. 28, he has promised to name as many as five generals to his cabinet, giving the security forces their biggest public role in decades. In addition, at least 38 former soldiers, police officers and firefighters rode the coattails of the former paratrooper to win election to congress Oct. 7. In 2014, only 14 veterans won.

This is because of the insecurity that were experiencing in Brazil, said Waldir Soares de Oliveira, a re-elected congressman and ex-cop known as Deputy Waldir. No one can cope with this wave of insecurity any more.

Just over 30 years after the end of a military dictatorship, Brazils security forces are back in a big way. Even if Bolsonaro loses, theres now a significant law-and-order bloc in Congress voted in by a population terrified by rising crime. With more than 63,000 violent deaths last year alone, the number of Brazilians murdered in 2017 outstrips U.S. combat deaths for the entire Vietnam War.

Military Mindset

The issue isnt just the uniform, said Ivo Herzog, whose journalist father, Vladimir, was murdered by the military government in 1975 and remains one of Brazils biggest symbols of the struggle against the dictatorship. Its the extreme right in power, going against all democratic achievements.

In 1985, amid economic crisis and after years of pressure, Brazils military leaders gave way to a civilian president. Three years later, congress drafted a new constitution, widely considered one of the worlds most progressive, offering legal protections to minority groups and many of the benefits of a welfare state. But no one has ever been prosecuted for the torture and murder committed during the 20 years of military rule

Was Khashoggi murdered due to 9/11 knowledge? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Jamal Khashoggi may have gleaned highly sensitive inside information on what actually happened on 9/11. The macabre case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi raises the question: did Saudi rulers fear him revealing highly damaging information on their secret dealings? In particular, possible involvement in the 9/11 terror attacks on New York in 2001. Even more intriguing are US media reports now emerging that American intelligence had snooped on and were aware of Saudi officials making plans to capture Khashoggi prior to his apparent disappearance at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week. If the Americans knew the journalist's life was in danger, why didn't they tip him off to avoid his doom? Jamal Khashoggi (59) had gone rogue, from the Saudi elite's point of view. Formerly a senior editor in Saudi state media and an advisor to the royal court, he was imminently connected and versed in House of Saud affairs.

Mr. Dimon had been a featured speaker, and his bank has longstanding ties to Saudi Arabia and is advising it on deals.

Mr. Dimon joins a host of Western executives and advisers who pulled out of Riyadhs conference following allegations that the Saudi government ordered Mr. Khashoggis killing. Ford Motor Co. Chairman Bill Ford and Uber Technologies Inc. Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi, whose company is partly owned by Saudi Arabia, wont attend the conference.

A spokesman for the conference on Friday called the cancellations disappointing but said the Saudis were still looking forward to holding the conference.

Saudi Arabian stocks tumbled Sunday as investors confidence was shaken in the 33-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salmans ability to deliver on pledges to attract foreign investment amid signs Mr. Khashoggis case could spook businesses and risked serious damage to Saudi relations with the U.S. and other countries.

President Donald Trump promised severe punishment if the allegations about Mr. Khashoggi prove true.

The Saudi government says it had nothing to do with Mr. Khashoggis disappearance and is working with the Turkish government to investigate what happened to him.

The Riyadh-based Saudi Stock Exchanges benchmark Tadawul All Share Index closed 3.5% lower, after falling nearly 7% at one point in the session.

Last week, as the cases repercussions came into focus, foreign investors were net sellers of $160 million worth of shares on the Tadawul, according to the exchanges data. That compared with net buying of roughly the same amount in the previous week, the data showed.

Before Mr. Khashoggis disappearance, Prince Mohammeds most ambitious plan, the initial public offering of the state oil company, had stalled. Saudi talks with companies including Alphabet Inc.s Google, Warner....

Do we need to teach the IR paradigms at all? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Over the weekend, fellow guest contributor Luke Perez had an interesting post on whether we need to include the grand paradigms of international relations  (realism, liberalism, and constructivism) in foreign policy classes. He makes some good points on how to customize courses for foreign policy students; be sure to read it if you havent. Id like to go further and ask whether we need to teach these paradigms at all.

Im coming at this from a different perspective than Perez. I teach at an undergraduate focused institution. So Im preparing students for a broad array of potential political science careers. But the issue with the paradigms importance transcends any single realm of higher education.

While in graduate school, my time as a teaching assistant for intro to IR courses and my own PhD seminars in international relations let me observe several different ways to organize an intro to IR course. This gave me a few potential models when I started putting together my own syllabus.

I had a lot to work out, but I decided on one thing: I would not organize the entire course around the paradigms. Its possible to have an -ism-focused course, presenting multiple sessions on each theory, complemented by related topics. For example, realism could include theory lectures ranging from classical realism to neoclassical realism, followed by lectures on the balance of power and other topics.

That didnt fit my own understanding of international relations, however. I dont think, for example, that power politics is necessarily a realist topic (for a systematic discussion on this, see this article by Goddard and Nexon). So Id want power politics to be separate from realism. And as someone who studies religion and international relations, I wouldnt feel comfortable saying thats part of constructivism. Thats where it would seem to belong except for the fact that constructivism never really dealt with religion. But an -ism-focused syllabus would force me to squeeze it in with constructivism. So I cover the isms in one unit alongside the levels of analysis, but then proceed with narrower mid-range theories and policy issues.

I dont think this is that revolutionary, but Ive been tempted to go further, and reduce the paradigms to one lecture then move on. There are a few reasons why:

  1. The paradigms do not own any topic: Balance of power seems realist, but involves plenty of norms and symbolic politics (the...

Elizabeth Warren Reveals DNA Evidence of Native American Ancestry, Confronting Trump "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In a direct reply to President Donald Trumps taunts, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., revealed on Monday that a DNA test provides compelling evidence that she does, in fact, have Native American ancestry.

Warren announced the test results in a highly produced biographical video that looks like the opening salvo in a campaign against Trump for the presidency, which the Massachusetts senator said last month she would take a hard look at pursuing after her likely re-election in November.

The video, which points to a new section of Warrens website dedicated to facts about her heritage, begins with images of the senator returning to meet her brothers in Norman, Oklahoma, where she was raised, as audio of Trump mocking her as a fake Pocahontas rings out on the soundtrack.

Clips of Trump and other Republicans deriding Warren for what they assumed was her false claim about her Native ancestry are interwoven with the senator and her brothers recounting the family lore that traces their ancestry back to a Cherokee great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith.

Warren is then shown getting the test results from Carlos Bustamante, a professor of biomedical data science, genetics, and biology at Stanford University, who has advised the genetic testing services Ancestry.com and 23andMe, as well as the PBS series Finding Your Roots.

The president likes to call my mom a liar, Warren tells Bustamante. What do the facts say?

The facts suggest that you absolutely have a Native American ancestor in your pedigree, Bustamante replies.

In the senators genome, Bustamante explains to the video crew, we did find five segments of Native American ancestry with very high confidence, where we believe the error rate is less than 1 in a 1,000.

IMF, WB, and WTO: Scaremongering Threats on De-Globalization and Tariffs "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As key representatives of the three chief villains of international finance and trade, the IMF, World Bank (WB) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) met on the lush resort island of Bali, Indonesia, they warned the world of dire consequences in terms of reduced international investments and decline of economic growth as a result of the ever-widening trade wars initiated and instigated by the Trump Administration. They criticized protectionism that might draw countries into decline of prosperity. The IMF cuts its global economic growth forecast for the current year and for 2019.

This is pure scaremongering based on nothing. In fact, economic growth of the past that claimed of having emanated from increased trade and investments has served a small minority and driven a widening wedge between rich and poor of both developing and industrialized countries. Its interesting how nobody ever talks about the internal distribution of GDP growth that these handlers and instruments of empire and liars for the elite are boasting about; nobody ever seems to question the way these growth rates are calculated or perhaps just drawn out of hot air? Take the case of Peru, a resource-rich country that boasted in the past often an economic growth of 5% to 7%. On average, the distribution of this growth was such that 80% went to 5% of the population and 20% was to be distributed among 95% of the people. This doesnt even address the fragmentation of the lower and higher tiers of the percentage breakdowns, but it surely creates more poverty, more inequality, more unemployment and more delinquency.

Or just look at the insane and totally unfounded IMF prediction of 1 million percent inflation of the Venezuelan new currency in 2018 and 2019?  What are they talking about? No substantiation whatsoever. The same with the prediction of dire consequences from reduced trade, when trade as we know it, has and is serving almost exclusively the corporate world of rich industrialized countries, leaving poorer developing countries behind with a burden of unfair deals and often a resulting debt trap.

Such manipulations of truth coming out of international financial and trade organizations, especially the IMF and the WB, are so flagrantly and scrupulously wrong that they cannot be backed with a shred of professionalism, yet they get away with it because of their apparent unfailable reputation, scaremongering government into doing what is against their and their peoples best interest, namely, caring for their own local, sovereign economy, without any foreign interference.

Time and again it has been proven that countries that need and want to recover from economic fallouts do best by concentrating on and promoting their own internal socioeconomic capacities, with as little as possible outside interference. One of the most prominent cases in point is China. After China emerged on 1 Oc...

How ISIS Plot to Assassinate Trump Was Foiled "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A member of President Trump's Secret Service detail (Photo: BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/Getty Images)A member of President Trumps Secret Service detail (Photo: BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/Getty Images)

ISIS had its eyes on President Donald Trump since he was elected. Now it has been revealed that an ISIS plot to assassinate Trump was foiled by the Secret Service during Trumps visit to the Philippines for the ASEAN 50 Summit in November 2017.

Although agents picked up certain details of the attacker, just 20 minutes before Trump touched down in Manila, they still had not located the terrorist.

Gonna be in Manila the same time as Trump Ill take one for the team lads, tweeted the terrorist with a mugshot of Lee Harvey Oswald.

On his Instagram account, the suspect posted his picture holding a copy of the book How to Kill: The Definitive History of the Assassin.

Agents were able to track the location of the suspect through the IP address of posts to downtown Manila, just miles from the presidents hotel. Further monitoring showed he was heading in the direction of the hotel. The suspect was eventually tracked down to Manilas Luneta Park and, with the help of local police, a sweep was made of the park and he was caught.

The dramatic story will be told in a report on the National Geographic channel scheduled to air October 21.

Union jack produces "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 

Union Jack is a trance music collaboration between Simon Berry and Claudio Giussani, a trance music producer from England. The duo has focused on acid and tech trance and has been closely associated with the Platipus record label, which was founded by Berry.

Disillusioned by the state of the early 1990s music industry, Berry and Giussani joined forces in 1993, firstly remixing Nicelys Away The Throttle Pedal Stop before releasing their seminal first single, Two Full Moons and A Trout. Their following single, Cactus, reinforced their reputation before the release of their first album There Will Be No Armageddon. Enjoyable both at home and on the dance floor, it contained their third single, Red Herring, which was a popular club song in the 1990s.

In 2008, after a 7-year hiatus, Union Jack (this time featuring a new production partner, Paul Brogden aka POB of Seismic Records) recommenced with a career spanning live set at the Ultra Music Festival, taking in all their classic tracks. Following the success of that live date the pair entered the studio to work on Pylon Pigs, Union Jacks first new material in eleven years.

PC market flat, as Surface becomes a top-5 computer brand in the US

Microsoft was the fifth-biggest PC maker in the US in the third quarter of this year, according to industry advisory firm Gartner.

The top spot in the US belongs to HP, with about 4.5 million machines sold, ahead of Dell at 3.8 million, Lenovo at 2.3 million, and Apple at 2 million. The gap between fourth and fifth is pretty bigMicrosoft sold only 0.6 million Surface devices last quarterbut it suggests that Microsoft's PC division is heading in the right direction, with sales 1.9 percent higher than the same quarter last year. The company pushed down to sixth place was Acer.

The current quarter should be better still; the Surface Pro, Surface Laptop, and Surface Studio have all been given hardware refreshes which, when combined with the always-busy holiday season, should stimulate higher sales.

Facebook Meddles in the 2018 Midterm Elections

On October 11, Facebook announced the removal of 559 pages and 251 accounts from its service, accusing the account holders of spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior. In other words, Facebooks administrators are meddling in politics including the 2018 US midterm elections in the name of preventing meddling in politics.

Who benefits from the meddling? It doesnt seem to fall along left/right lines in particular. The victims come from across the political spectrum from Reverb Press on the left, to Right Wing News on the right, to the libertarian Free Thought Project some with millions of Facebook followers.

The primary thread connecting victims of the purge seems to be that they are critics and/or opponents of the American political mainstream or establishment.

Polish police tear gas gay rights march "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Polish police deployed tear gas, water cannon, and concussion grenades on right-wing demonstrators as a city in the countrys east hosted its very first gay rights march.

More than 1,000 gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender rights activists were interrupted by around 300 right-wing opponents in the city of Lublin on Saturday, according to AP.

The demonstrators threw stones at police, prompting officers to respond with tear gas and other measures. Small groups also tried to break through a police cordon that was protecting the march.

Footage posted online by Ruptly showed demonstrators in a standoff with riot police.

The event took place just one day after Lublins Court of Appeals overruled a ban by Mayor Krzysztof Zuk, who had previously prohibited the parade, citing security concerns.

Despite the attempted interruption on Saturday, the march continued without any major issues.

Although gay rights parades have been taking place in Warsaw and many other cities throughout Poland, the ruling conservative party is not supportive of gay rights groups.

Family Doctors Lobby Lifts Opposition to Assisted Suicide "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One of the nations largest doctors lobbies has retracted its opposition to assisted suicide.

Delegates from the American Academy of Family Physicians, which represents more than 130,000 doctors nationwide, voted to change the groups stance to engaged neutrality on the question of whether physicians should be able to prescribe lethal medications to patients. The resolution was reached at the organizations Congress of Delegates held last week in New Orleans. AAFP president Michael Munger said in a statement posted to the groups website that the resolution was designed to help doctors care for their patients.

Through our ongoing and continuous relationship with our patients, family physicians are well-positioned to counsel patients on end-of-life care, and we are engaged in creating change in the best interest of our patients, Dr. Munger said.

The resolution goes further than reversing the groups longstanding opposition. It also seeks to eliminate the phrase assisted suicide and replace it with medical aid in dying, the preferred term used by supporters of the practice. It also encourages AAFP to woo other physician groups to reverse their opposition. AAFP will seek to convince the national American Medical Association, the largest health care group in the country, to ditch its opposition to assisted suicide and embrace a neutral positiona move that several health care chapters have done at the state level.

The action taken [on Oct. 9] allows the AAFP to advocate for engaged neutrality on this subject at future AMA House of Delegates meetings, Munger said.

Supporters of assisted suicide praised AAFP for becoming one of the largest medical groups to change course on the controversial legalization measureswhich lawmakers have largely rejected in bipartisan fashion in statehouses ranging from heavily Republican Utah to Democratic Massachusetts.

Dr. David Grube, a former AAFP delegate who now works as national medical director of the pro-assisted suicide Compassion & Choices, said the groups stance is a welcome step to convincing the AMA to follow suit.

When Republicans achieved the trifecta in 2016, winning the presidency as well as holding the House and Senate, it seemed the country was poised to move beyond the GOP-engineered partisan gridlock that had characterized much of the previous six years.

Americans had reason to expect action from Congress, for better or worse, on a variety of issues ranging from health care and immigration to reducing government overspending.

Not so much, as it turned out. The Republican majority in Congress tried and failed to dismantle the Affordable Care Act without offering a plan of their own that a majority of their own members-- let alone a majority of the American people-- could support.  Instead, they have allowed the system to become increasingly unstable, leading to a lack of competition and rising premiums.

Mongoose: Fake News Legalized Lying Thanks to Supreme Court Ruling in 1964 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Supreme Court Ruled The Media Can Lie With Impunity

So, the Court held that the First Amendment protects the publication of all statements, even false ones, about the conduct of public officials, except when statements are made with actual malice (with knowledge that they are false or in reckless disregard of their truth or falsity).  Under this new standard, Sullivans original case collapsed, and this is why today, lies are told by media and public officials with impunity.

Phi Beta Iota: While we are not thrilled with the underlying case that led to the decision, the decision itself is indeed at the root of the culture of lying that characterizes the Mainstream Media (MSM) to include not properly reporting on False Flag operations by the Zionists and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). At the same time, the US Government is failing to enforce the First Amendment and Title 7 (Anti-Discrimination) among the members of the #GoogleGestapo criminal conspiracy to eradicate conservative and progressive voices against the Deep State and the Shadow Government. There is a great deal of work to be done  toward restoring the Constitution, the rights of the sovereign member states and individuals, and the Republic.

Benjamin Fulford: The fall of the Zionist house of Saud plus possible coup attempt in Russia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Benjamin Fulford

World events are quickly coming to a head, with a major move against the house of Saud and a possible coup attempt this weekend against Russian President Vladimir Putin, say Pentagon, CIA, and FSB sources.

First, the murder (or psy-ops staged murder) of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi is part of a move to remove the Zionist/Satanic house of Saud from control of Saudi Arabia and Middle Eastern oil, according to Pentagon and CIA sources.  The operation is also aimed at grabbing funds to keep the bankrupt U.S. afloat, CIA sources say.

This is how the CIA summed up the situation:

The U.S. Treasury is holding between $3-5 TRILLION of Saudi Arabias petrodollars, which have been accumulating since the 70s when this whole petrodollar sleight of hand began (around the same time that Nixon closed the gold window).  These trillions have been confiscated and will not be returned.  The same for the thousands of tons of gold stored in Credit Suisse and UBS banks in Switzerland, which was owned by Saudi Arabia (the House of Saud).  It has been confiscated as well.  It is game over financially for the Zionist Khazarian House of Saud.  This really is Game-Set-Match.

It is also no coincidence the Khashoggi incident happened just as the head of the CIA in Turkey, Pastor Andrew Brunson, was released from Turkish prison.  The longer-term scenario will be for Turkey to resume control of its former holdings in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, while Israel becomes a Jewish autonomous zone under Turkish protection, the sources say.

As a preliminary step, Saudi clown prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS) may be purged, as Saudi Arabia is facing Western sanctions and boycotts in a dry run for an attack on Israel when 9/11 documents are declassified, Pentagon sources add.

We will discuss this further below, but as this newsletter was about to be published we got urgent communications from FSB sources about an attempted coup this weekend against Russian President Vladimir Putin.  According to the sources, a big move against the autonomous Donbass region of the Ukraine by Rothschild forces led to a huge dispute inside the Russian general staff with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu

Malicious gamers are sending messages that are bricking PS4 console; heres what you can do to make sure that your PS4 doesnt get bricked

Sonys PlayStation 4 (PS4) has recently been infected with a bug that uses a text-message exploit to crash the users consoles.

Several users shared the problem on Reddit and social media revealing how the PlayStation Network (PSN) bug can freeze and basically temporarily break the PS4s internal software. The issue is so severe that it is forcing users to get a factory reset done on their system to make it work again. Even deleting the message from the mobile app on Android and iOS doesnt work.

According to reports, a private message containing special characters are reportedly crashing PS4 consoles. The malicious message triggers a bug, which then compromises the console. In fact, in some cases, the message doesnt even have to be opened for the glitch to trigger. In some instances, just receiving the notification on the PS4 is enough to trigger a crash.

There is a new glitch that basically bricks your console and forces you to factory reset it. Even deleting the message from the mobile app doesnt work. It happened to me during Rainbow Six: SiegeRedditor Huntstark wrote.

A player from the other team used a dummy account to send the message and crashed my entire team. We all have had to factory reset. Only one of our guys wasnt affected and he has his messages private.

Apparently, the malicious gamers are sending out the messages through group chat. Reports that deleting the suspect message from Sonys PlayStation Messages app for Android or iOS before opening it on your console can avoid crashing problems.

If you havent received the message yet, it is recommended that you set your messages to Private to prevent your PS4 from crashing.

While Sony has yet to comment on the issue, you can however make the following changes from your PS4 to protect yourself until a fix is released:

  1. Go to Settings, select Account Management, Privacy Settings and then Enter your password.
  2. Select Personal Info | Messages, select Messages.
  3. Either select Friends Only or No One and keep it that way until Sony issues a fix.

Saudi Arabia is worlds energy shock absorber says Energy Minister Al-Falih "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih on Monday said that the Kingdom was the worlds energy shock absorber and pledged to continue to offer a cushion to global supply interruptions.

.
He told an energy event in India that it was time this balancing role was respected and acknowledged by the international community.

Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih on Monday said that the Kingdom was the worlds energy shock absorber. (Reuters)

.
His remarks come amid concerns among energy-importing nations about the recent rise in the oil price.

.
We could have another unanticipated, unplanned disruption. Weve seen Libya, weve seen Nigeria, weve seen Venezuela and we have sanctions on Iran. These supply disruptions need a shock absorber, Al-Falih told the CERAWeek event by IHS Markit.

.
The shock absorber has been, to a large part, Saudi Arabia. We have invested tens of billions of dollars to build the spare capacity which has been two to three million barrels over the years thats equivalent of production capacity of major producers.

.
It has been like a spinning reserve in an electricity system waiting to step in if there is a disruption. Weve done it out of a sense of responsibility.

.
He added that the Kingdom wanted to continue playing that global balancing role but also hoped that the global community of nations will respect and acknowledge what Saudi Arabia has done.

.
In a wide ranging address, Al-Falih also questioned the hype around the electric vehicle market and said that petrol and diesel engines would co-exist with emerging electric and hydrogen fuel cell technologies for much longer than some commentators expect.

.
Saudi Arabia is boosting its energy ties with India and Al-Falih said Saudi corporations including Aramco, SABIC and Maaden planned to increase investments in the country.

Global Markets Continue To Fall As Bloomberg Warns The Next Financial Crisis Is Staring Us In The Face "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It looks like it could be another tough week for global financial markets.  As the week began, markets were down all over the world, and relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia have taken a sudden turn for the worse.  That could potentially mean much, much higher oil prices, and needless to say that would be a very bad thing for the U.S. economy.  It has really surprised many of us how dramatically events have begun to accelerate here in the month of October, and the mood on Wall Street has taken a decidedly negative turn.  Yes, U.S. stocks did bounce back a bit on Friday (as I correctly anticipated), but it was much less of a bounce than many investors were hoping for.  And this week got off to a rough start with all of the major markets in Asia down significantly

In the Greater China region, the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong fell by around 0.9 percent in early trade. The Shanghai composite also slipped by 0.33 percent while the Shenzhen composite bucked the overall trend to edge up by 0.4 percent.

In Japan, the Nikkei 225 fell by 1.48 percent in morning trade, while the Topix index slipped by 1.17 percent, with most sectors trending lower.

But what happened in Asia was nothing compared to what we witnessed in Saudi Arabia.

At one point the stock market in Saudi Arabia had plummeted 7 percent after news broke that President Trump warned that the Saudis could face severe punishment for the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The Saudis are denying doing anything wrong, but everyone agrees that he is missing, and everyone agrees that he was last spotted entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2nd.

And it is being reported that U.S. intelligence had previously intercepted communications which indicated that the Saudis planned to abduct Khashoggi.

It is believed that Khashoggi was dismembered after being abducted by the Saudis, and all of the major western powers have expressed major concern about his fate.  But the Saudis insist that they didnt have anything to do with his dis...

Ten corporate giants helping Israel massacre Gaza protesters "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As Israeli soldiers gun down unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in the Great March of Return, their lethal operations depend on an array of contractors and suppliers, many of them companies based outside Israel. "The Israeli military relies on a network of international companies, supplying everything from sniper rifles to tear gas, to carry out its massacres of protesters in Gaza," Tom Anderson, a researcher for Corporate Occupation, told MintPress News. "These companies are knowingly supporting war crimes, and are complicit in state-orchestrated murder." Since the mobilization began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed 205 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, the United Nations' Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in the Occupied Palestinian Territory reported on October 4. There have been 21,288 injured, including 5,345 from live ammunition, resulting in 11,180 hospitalizations. Thirty-eight of the dead and 4,250 of the wounded were children. A press release...

Germanys political landscape is crumbling as Merkels sister party, the CSU, has only received 37.3% of the votes in Bavaria, preliminary results show. Meanwhile, the right-wing AfD has entered parliament for the first time.
.

Voters in Bavaria headed to the polls to decide on the composition of the 180-member parliament on Sunday. The Christian Social Union (CSU) sister party to Merkels Christian Democratic Union (CDU) gained 37.3 percent in Germanys largest and second most populous state, according to an exit poll for broadcaster ARD.

It represents the worst election result since 1950, and a loss of its absolute majority for only the second time since 1962. It means the CSU will now have to form a coalition.

Jamal Khashoggi: Turkey given permission to search Saudi consulate "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Saudi Arabia has given Turkey permission to search its Istanbul consulate Monday afternoon, nearly two weeks after journalist Jamal Khashoggi went missing there, a Turkish diplomatic source told CNN.

The news comes as international pressure mounts on Riyadh to explain the journalists disappearance. Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post and a Saudi royal insider-turned-critic, entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2 and has not been seen since.
.
Khashoggis disappearance has created a diplomatic rift between Saudi and the West, with the UK, France and Germany demanding a credible investigation into the events and US President Donald Trump warning of serious retribution if the Saudis are found to be behind his possible death.
.
Image result for Jamil Khashoggi, photos
.
Saudi authorities maintain Khashoggi left the consulate the same afternoon but have provided no evidence of that.
A joint Turkish-Saudi working group into the case has been proposed, but the results of a separate, internal Saudi investigation should be made public soon, a Saudi official with knowledge of the probe told CNN on Monday.
.
The Saudi official said that a royal decree was issued Friday directing the public prosecutor to conduct an internal investigation into the Khashoggi case, based on intelligence shared with Saudi Arabia by Turkey.
.
While a joint Turkish-Saudi investigation team is still cooperating on the ground, the leadership had felt that an internal investigation was needed to make sure no stone is left unturned to unfold the truth, the official said.
.
On Sunday, Washington and Riyadh traded a series of threats, with Trump warning of the potential for severe punishment and Saudi officials threatening to retaliate if the US imposed sanctions. Riyadh later softened its tone.

Facebook Meddles in the 2018 Midterm Elections "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 

United States (Garrison) On October 11, Facebook announced the removal of 559 pages and 251 accounts from its service, accusing the account holders of spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior.

The purged users stand accused of posting massive amounts of content to drive traffic to their websites with suspicious timing ahead of US midterm elections.

Facebook admits to legitimate reasons for such behavior its the bedrock of fundraising campaigns and grassroots organizations. Not to mention the operations of CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and a bunch of other users/pages which werent purged.

Facebook also admits that it has previously enforced this policy against many Pages, Groups and accounts created to stir up political debate

In other words, Facebooks administrators are meddling in politics including the 2018 US midterm elections in the name of preventing meddling in politics.

Who benefits from the meddling? It doesnt seem to fall along left/right lines in particular. The victims come from across the political spectrum from Reverb Press on the left, to Right Wing News on the right, to the libertarian Free Thought Project some with millions of Facebook followers.

The primary thread connecting victims of the purge seems to be that they are critics and/or opponents of the American political mainstream or establishment.

In a sense, this is nothing new. Even before Internet social media, the old guard mainstream media tended to draw fairly narrow lines on either side of the perceived political center or consensus and avoid coloring (or publishing e.g. reader letters that colored) very far outside those lines. One might support or oppose a tax increase, or even a particular tax, but opposing taxation in general? Why, that was just crazy and not worthy of consideration or of column inches.

The Internet and social media threatened to change that. In fact, they DID change that for a little while, at any rate. But now Facebook, Twitter et al. are part of the establishment, and theyre starting to act like it.

How can we fight that trend?

Some would have us classify social media as public utilities or something of the sort and regulate them as such. But who would regulate them? The very establishment in question.

On the other hand, its becoming clear that these companies are already looking more and more like extensions of the state and the establishment the state serves than like bona fide private sector actors.

Could Saudi Arabia Destroy the US Economy? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Traders on the floor of the NY Stock Exchange (Illustrative Photo: Eduardo Munoz Alvarez/Getty Images)Traders on the floor of the NY Stock Exchange (Illustrative Photo: Eduardo Munoz Alvarez/Getty Images)

Could Saudi Arabia destroy the US economy if sanctions are enacted against it? A potential pressure cooker situation is brewing over suspicions that Saudi Arabia murdered one of its own journalists.

While President Donald Trump threatens sanctions against the desert kingdom over the affair, American companies including J.P. Morgan, Ford, Uber, CNN, the Financial Times, The New York Times, CNBC and Bloomberg have pulled out of a preeminent Saudi investor conference in Riyadh next week.

One of Saudi Arabias 10 American PR firms, the Harbour Group, just dropped the Saudis as a client, forfeiting the $80,000 per month retainer.

It seems that while Saudi Arabia is under suspicions of murdering journalist Jamal Khashoggi, some American companies weighed the damage that doing business with the kingdom can do to their reputations and decided that negative perceptions arent worth it.

Yet, while that may work from a PR perspective in the short term, the long-term consequences of stopping business with the kingdom is much more complicated.

Since business decisions are rarely made on ethical lines alone (in fact, one could say they almost always depend on the bottom line), we need to understand the dynamics unfolding in what could become the financial crisis of 2018.

No one should make the mistake of believing that Saudi Arabia a country that many major U.S...

How Guantanamo Set the Stage for the Kavanaugh Hearings "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Amid the emotional hubbub over the predictable confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, there has been a largely overlooked casualty: the American judiciary. Its not the end result alone his addition to the highest bench in the land where he will sit for life that promises to damage the country, but the unprofessional, procedurally irresponsible way his circus-like hearings were held that dealt a blow to the possibilities for justice in America, a blow from which it may prove hard to recover.

Senator Susan Collins acknowledged the damage the hearings wrought, even if she misunderstood the cause. Delivering her massively disappointing decision to vote yes on Kavanaugh, Collins reflected on what she saw as the passion that overrode the presumption of innocence and expressed worry that such behavior would lead to a lack of public faith in the judiciary. Though wrong in blaming the Democrats for those passions, her conclusion was otherwise spot on. This confirmation has underscored and enhanced the fragility of justice in America, at least as a reflection of law, decency, honesty, transparency, and fairness.

Surprising as this derailment of justice might have seemed, it echoed (and may, in fact, have reflected) another long-unspooling twenty-first-century American degradation of justice. The proceedings created to try those terrorism suspects locked away in the offshore detention center at Guantnamo Bay, Cuba, pivoted away from many of the countrys legal and moral principles (a subject to which Ill return).

But as a prelude to understanding the harm that the Kavanaugh confirmation process caused, think for a moment about the fundamental premises underlying the Supreme Court and so the American judiciary. The Founding Fathers envisioned it as a body chaired by judges whose professional responsibility was, as Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 78, to be faithful guardians of the Constitution. Toward that end, the Court was to stand independent from politics and the other two branches of government. That idea of judicial independence was, in the oft-quoted words of Chief Justice William Rehnquist, one of the crown jewels of our system of government.

Its apparent that both Kavanaugh and the committee before which he testified betrayed the goals of justice laid out in that foundational period by violating several major elements of judicial reasoning and procedure. In the process, they helped introduce Gitmo-style justice to the American legal system. Below are four ways in which the committee compromised longstanding aspects of American jurisprudence and justice.

Menem ha sido absuelto por la acusacin de contrabando de armas "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Carlos Menem ha sido absuelto por la justicia de Argentina este jueves, el expresidente del pas, fue acusado de contrabando de armas a Croacia y Ecuador entre 1991 y 1995 por lo que haba sido condenado de manera previa a siete aos de prisin.

La Cmara de Casacin Penal, que juzg el caso, consider que se ha superado el plazo razonable para el proceso, que se ha arrastrado durante dos dcadas, lo que significa la absolucin pero no representa una declaracin de inocencia.

En 2017, el Menem, de 88 aos, fue condenado concretamente a siete aos de prisin y catorce de suspensin del derecho para ejercer cargos pblicos tras ser considerado coautor de contrabando agravado de material blico a los dos pases anteriormente citados, pero finalmente Menem ha sido absuelto tras quedarse en prisin preventiva domiciliaria en 2001 durante seis meses y luego quedar libre por tener inmunidad parlamentaria al haber asumido el cargo de senador en 2005, siendo adems reelegido desde entonces.

Hay actos de gobierno que no deberan ir a un tribunal. Un pas que fabrica armas y no las usa tiene que venderlas, alegaron los abogados de Menem.

Tambin fueron condenados como coautor de contrabando agravado de armas en el mismo proceso, el ministro de Defensa en el gobierno de Menem, scar Camilin (cinco aos y seis meses de prisin) y algunos otros ocupantes de cargos pblicos.

Zulema Menem, hija del expresidente, escribi un mensaje en Twitter para conmemorar la decisin favorable a su padre: todo pasa, y esto tambin pas.

Tambin en la red social, Elisa Carri, diputada del partido Coalicin Cvica ARI  e integrante del frente Cambiemos que llev a Mauricio Macri en 2015 a la Presidencia de la Nacin, ante cuyo gobierno ha habido movimientos sociales hace un par de meses en materia de educacin, afirm que la decisin muestra la visceral impunidad que hiere gravemente a la Repblica.

La poltica y la justicia impidieron una condena en plazos cortos. Hoy la misma poltica y la misma justicia impidieron el cumplimiento de la condena, agreg.

Durante los dos mandatos de Menem, se exportaron 6,5 mil toneladas de armas destinadas oficialmente a Panam y Venezuela, pero que en realidad fueron desviadas a Croacia, en 1991, en pleno conflicto en la antigua Yugoslavia, y para Ecuador, en 1995.

El empresario declara que su negocio es uno de los mayores transportistas de petrleo desde EEUU a China pero ahora est completamente parado.

El petrleo no est incluido en las listas de productos estadounidenses sancionados con nuevas tarifas arancelarias por parte de China, pero los importadores de petrleo eluden realizar nuevos pedidos. Xie Chunlin aade que la guerra comercial entre Estados Unidos y China por desgracia ha ocurrido y que prev que no ser bueno para la industria del transporte.

Asimismo, el presidente de la empresa china subray que el conflicto comercial obliga a su pas a comprar soja de otros proveedores, por lo que ahora China adquiere la mayor parte de ese producto en Amrica del Sur.

La Guerra comercial entre EEUU y China

Cada vez ms sectores de la economa se ven inmersos en este conflicto comercial entre Estados Unidos y China, el cual involucra cada vez ms bienes, llegando ahora al petrleo.

El pasado mes de junio el presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, introdujo medidas con las que comenz esta guerra comercial entre ambos gigantes econmicos, impuso aranceles por valor de 50.000 millones de dlares contra las importaciones de mercancas chinas. Como rplica, Pekn adopt un arancel del 25 % sobre 659 productos de los EEUU, tambin valorados en 50.000 millones de dlares.

Si China -declar Trump- aumenta sus aranceles una vez ms, responderemos a esa medida aplicando aranceles adicionales sobre otros 200.000 millones en bienes.

Pekn inici la aplicacin de aranceles a mercancas estadounidenses, por el equivalente a lo que seran 60.000 millones de dlares este 24 de septiembre, la fecha para la que Washington haba anunciado el comienzo de los impuestos a importaciones chinas por un valor de 200.000 millones de dlares.

Esto es inaceptable. Deben tomarse medidas adicionales para alentar a China a que cambie sus prcticas (comerciales) desleales, abra su mercado a los productos estadounidenses y acepte una relacin comercial ms equilibrada con Estados Unidos, dijo Trump en esa ocasin en un comunicado.

Moving Upstream explores the dark side of sophisticated video fakery

.

Seeing isnt believing anymore. Deep-learning computer applications can now generate fake video and audio recordings that look strikingly real.

In a recent video published by researchers to show how the technology works, an actor sits in front of a camera moving his face. The computer then generates the same expressions in real time on an existing video of Barack Obama. When the actor shakes his head, the former president shakes his head as well. When he speaks, Mr. Obama speaks as well.

This is a big deal, Hany Farid, computer science professor at Dartmouth College, told The Wall Street Journal. You can literally put into a persons mouth anything you want.

Prof. Christian Theobalt, part of a team working on the technology at the Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics in Germany, said he is motivated by the creative possibilities that it holds for the future.

He said researchers have developed forensic methods to detect fakes.

But Prof. Farid says researchers who push computer-generated technology need to think about the consequences these computer-generated fakes could have for society. He believes forensic experts are being outpaced by the development of fakes and that there is no method yet that can detect them all.

Milky way could be spreading life from star to star "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For almost two centuries, scientists have theorized that life may be distributed throughout the Universe by meteoroids, asteroids, planetoids, and other astronomical objects. This theory, known as Panspermia, is based on the idea that microorganisms and the chemical precursors of life are able to survive being transported from one star system to the next. Expanding on this theory, a team of researchers from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) conducted a study that considered whether panspermia could be possible on a galactic scale. According to the model they created, they determined that the entire Milky Way (and even other galaxies) could be exchanging the components necessary for life. The study, "Galactic Panspermia", recently appeared online and is being reviewed for publication by the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The study was led by Idan Ginsburg, a visiting scholar at the CfA's Institute for Theory and Computation (ITC), and included...

Following Vaccinations 900 Voices Telling the Truth "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

900
By Dan Olmsted

Ive just spent several hours reading what I believe is one of the most important documents ever created about childrens health. Just click on followingvaccinations.com and see for yourself.

The simple idea on September 18, 2010, Joan Campbell posted the following note to parents of autistic children: I am compiling a list of children who were adversely affected by any vaccine. Please if you could say in about 4-6 sentences what that vaccine was, how they reacted, how they are today and what city the vaccine was administered.

To date, more than 900 responses have been received. The cumulative effect is simply devastating.

Over the past few months, as we all know, the medical establishment and the mainstream media have taken to calling the concern that vaccines can and do cause autism discredited a myth based on fraudulent science, Internet rumors, hysterical parents looking for something, anything someone, anyone to blame. These reports tell a very different story children vaccinated in good faith, on time and in full by caring parents who then watch, often within hours, the physical and mental collapse of their beloved baby.

in this case, the plural of anecdote is the truth. The truth that were talking about is much more than autism here everything from sudden death to seizures, acute allergies to horrible gut problems, arthritis to ADD.

One thing that comes through loud and clear, time after time, is the degree to which most doctors are, at best, incompetent to address this issue. They do not recognize, or cannot admit, vaccine injury. Children who react badly to one vaccine react worse to the next, and the next, until finally they succumb. These doctors are not part of the solution.

While the MMR is the most frequently cited trigger, there are children who fall to the atrocious HepB shot on the day of birth. Or to a flu vaccine. Or the DPT or to God knows what combination of shots at 2 or 4 or 6 months, or a year, or 18 months. Some were sick at the time, others were victims of doctors who played catch-up or made a mistake and gave a shot too early, or two shots, or ignored or forgot parents specific instructions. Being careful was too often not enough: Children went down even after the parents split up the MMR, or delayed, or skipped, or spaced out shot...

Jihadists fail to quit Syria buffer, throwing deal into doubt "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Jihadists in Syrias Idlib failed to meet a Monday deadline to leave a planned buffer zone ringing the countrys last rebel bastion, casting fresh doubt over a deal to avert bloodshed.

A Russian-Turkish truce agreement reached nearly a month ago for the northwestern region gave radical fighters until October 15 to leave a proposed demilitarised area between government and opposition forces.

Syrian protesters wave their national flag as they demonstrate against the regime and its ally Russia, in the rebel-held city of Idlib on September 7, 2018Protesters in the city of Idlib called for international help to stop the expected offensive. AFP photo

The accord was a last-ditch effort to stave off a regime onslaught on Idlib, the largest rebel stronghold left in war-ravaged Syria and home to around three million people.

But the target date for the withdrawal came and went without any hardliners leaving.

We did not document the withdrawal of any jihadist fighters from the entire demilitarised zone, Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor, said on Monday morning.

Jihadists had until midnight Sunday to Monday to pull out, according to Abdel Rahman and two rebel commanders in Idlib.

Syrias government said it would take time to judge if the deal had failed.

We have to wait for the Russian reaction. Russia is monitoring and following the situation, Foreign Minister Walid Muallem told reporters in Damascus.

Casual Observation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I've said for a long time that it should be America's foreign policy to rather aggressively avoid taking sides in any sectarian hostilities between Sunni Muslims and Shiite Muslims, which means that we should not try to impose an outcome in the Syrian Civil War that favors the Sunnis and also that we should quit treating Iran as the world's worst actor while arming Saudi Arabia to the teeth. Unfortunately, we have interests and obligations in the region that cannot simply be ignored, and we cannot always remain neutral in every dispute, but we should strive to be as even-handed as possible in what has become a widespread sectarian conflict. The Obama administration took this approach and suffered some of the downside consequences while also avoiding many possible worse outcomes. The Trump administration threw in aggressively on the Sunni side, making Saudi Arabia the cornerstone of their regional policy, largely in exchange for tens of billions in arms sales. They are now looking like abettors of the worst kind of monster.

Key County Says No to Modems, Phone Lines for Sending Votes for Security or Appearances? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

After cybersecurity concerns were raised during a recent federal court hearing on the states election system, Georgias largest county has announced it will no longer transmit voting results through phone lines. Instead, it will rely on police escorts to deliver secure bags of memory cards containing stored votes to a central counting location.

Fulton County, like the rest of the state, has been plagued by computer security concerns and other problems with its electronic voting system. The new policy appears to address at least one of those concerns. But county election officials are dismissing the move as window-dressing.

Related: Federal Judge Rules No on Paper Ballots in Georgia

In August, election integrity groups sued Georgia election officials, asking the courts to replace current electronic voting systems with paper ballots. The groups Georgians for Verified Voting and the Coalition for Good Governance charged that computer failures and cybersecurity vulnerabilities were depriving millions of Georgians of the right to vote.

The issue at stake in the lawsuit against Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is now the Republican candidate for governor, was whether or not Georgias voting machines are vulnerable to cyberattacks including, in the case of Fulton County, the states population center, through phone lines.

Related: Voting Machine Company Admits Installing Vulnerable Remote-Access Software

Computer experts testifying in the lawsuit and speaking and writing in the public arena have long asserted that the use of phone lines to transmit vote results is one of many ways elections carried out without a paper trail can be exploited by increasingly sophisticated hackers.

An employee reported that occasionally the phone lines leading into the tabulation server receive telemarketing calls.

District Court Judge Amy Totenberg seemed to agree with the computer experts when she ruled in September that officials had buried their heads in the sand about cybersecurity in general, including a host....

Shedding A Bit Of Light On Some Logic "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When it comes to logic technologies, we like to think weve seen them all here at Hackaday. But our community never ceases to surprise us with its variety and ingenuity, so it should be a surprise that [Dr Cockroach] has delivered one weve not seen before. Light logic doesnt use the conventional active devices youd expect such as transistors, tubes, or even relays. Instead, it uses LEDs and CdS cells to make rudimentary switches. So far there is a NAND, a NOR, and a set-reset latch that appears in the video below the break, and it is not inconceivable that much more complex devices could be crafted.

The CdS cell switch is not too far different in operation to a transistor, with the CdS cell forming half of a potential divider as a rough equivalent of a collector-emitter circuit, and the LED feeding its light to the cell and forming a rough equivalent of a base circuit. It would probably not form a very good analog of a transistor and it seems likely that is will not be the fastest of devices, but we applaud the ingenuity in coming up with it.

CdS cells are a component that seems almost to come from another era, redolent of childhood electronic kits from days of yore. Its no surprise we dont see them too often, though, they pop up in the occasional automatic sunglasses.

Firefox 64 Will Remove Support for RSS and Atom Feeds "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Submitted via IRC for chromas

Protip from Mozilla (and Opera): If you hide a feature then you can say nobody uses it, and then remove it.

Your RSS is grass: Mozilla euthanizes feed reader, Atom code in Firefox browser, claims it's old and unloved

When Firefox 64 arrives in December, support for RSS, the once celebrated content syndication scheme, and its sibling, Atom, will be missing.

"After considering the maintenance, performance and security costs of the feed preview and subscription features in Firefox, we've concluded that it is no longer sustainable to keep feed support in the core of the product," said Gijs Kruitbosch, a software engineer who works on Firefox at Mozilla, in a blog post on Thursday.

RSS which stands for Rich Site Summary, RDF Site Summary, or Really Simple Syndication, as you see fit is an XML-based format for publishing and subscribing to web content feeds. It dates back to 1999 and for a time was rather popular, but been disappearing from a variety of applications and services since then.

Mozilla appears to have gotten the wrecking ball rolling in 2011 when it removed the RSS button from Firefox. The explanation then was the same as it is now: It's just not very popular.

Among RSS/Atom fans, there's a more sinister explanation: feeds don't mesh well with the internet's data gathering industry because they allow users to consume web content (though usually not the full text of a site's articles) without triggering the dozens or even hundreds of analytics scripts lurking on web pages. Also, companies like Google and Facebook that have their own mechanisms for content aggregation have a disincentive to promote RSS/Atom apps as an alternative.

Former US retail giant Sears files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sears Holdings Corp filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday with a plan to close 142 more stores, throwing into doubt the future of the century-old retailer that once dominated U.S. malls but has withered in the age of internet shopping. The Chapter 11 filing to reorganize debts of the parent of Sears, Roebuck and Co and Kmart Corp follows a decade of revenue declines, hundreds of store closures, and years of deals by billionaire Chief Executive Officer Eddie Lampert in an attempt to turn around the company he bought in 2004. Lampert had pledged to restore Sears to its glory days, when it owned the tallest building in the world and companies that included a radio station and Allstate insurance. But the company has not turned a profit since 2011, and critics say Lampert let the stores deteriorate over the years, even as he bought the company's stock and lent it money. It has sold off the legendary Craftsman brand and is considering an offer from Lampert for the Kenmore appliance...

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) uncovered a new targeted attack on the information and telecommunication systems of Ukrainian government entities.
The SBU attributed the attack to the BlackEnergy Russia-linked APT group.

The Security Service of Ukraine has received more evidence of the aggressive actions of Russian intelligence services against Ukraine in cyberspace using a controlled hacker group responsible for carrying out cyberattacks on Ukraines critical infrastructure facilities during 2015-2017, known as BlackEnergy and NotPetya, reads the SBUs press release.

BlackEnergy made the headlines as the responsible for the massive power outage that occurred in Ukraine in December 2015.

The BlackEnergy malware is a threat improved to target SCADA systems, some variants include the KillDisk component developed to wipe the disks and make systems inoperable.

According to the SBU, BlackEnergy hackers used new samples of malware in a recent series of attack. The new malicious code act as surveillance software, they implement surveillance capabilities and remote administration features.

SBU along with experts from a well-known antivirus company determined that the malware involved in the attack are updated versions of the Industroyer backdoor.

The specialists involved in the investigation helped the Ukraine SBU to attribute the attack and implement mitigations to protect the IT infrastructure of government agencies.

"Mass murder and plunder": Philippines rejects vaccines following dengue fever scandal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The suspension of a dengue vaccine programme in the Philippines has caused trust in vaccinations to dramatically drop across the island nation, a study has found. In 2015, over 80 per cent of people in the Philipines strongly agreed that vaccines were safe and effective. The latest polling, published in Human Vaccines & Immunotherapeutics, found that just 20 per cent of people agreed in 2018. "We were surprised by how dramatic the drop was," said Professor Heidi Larson, director of the Vaccine Confidence Project at the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. "The whole political saga has spilled over to question vaccines and science more broadly." The Philipines has a high incidence of dengue and, in 2016, it became one of the first countries to launch a mass vaccination of children using the drug Dengvazia, made by the French drugs giant Sanofi.

"IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One thing that I worried when Deng started the economic reform and turned away from Maos attempt to mold human nature was inequality and the corrosive effect of capitalism on Chinese values. The Chinese article from guancha.cn I quoted on the heading above generated a lot of publicity and vehement condemnation from public about the case of a young couple attacking a cleaning lady when she objected to their child defecating on the street in Northern China. The woman said from her hospital bed that she would be fined from her superior if the street is not clean and 2 public toilets are nearby, and the job of cleaning public area, being the bottom of economic ladder, is look down by public and invisible. The comments were generally supportive of her. Some want to throw the book and prosecute the couple severely, others compare this with Maos era when the ideal was classless society, and any work is valued. Still others wonder why there is no official response on the incident other than the incident is under investigation.
There were other articles on guancha.cn about continuing anticorruption cases and praises for a new TV show on studying President Xis speeches on Chinese values. Obvious there is a new ongoing drive to return some of the values of Maos era of equality, anti-corruption, and Serve the People back into vogue. Its human nature that the anticorruption drive is faced with continuing resistance from the bureaucracy and some liberal sectors complaining of returning to the dark age of CR. I suspect that President Xi will have a tough road ahead not only facing Trumpian U.S., but internally a heavy grind. Living here is U.S. I find the Chinese propaganda is lacking some human touch comparing to Western, softer approach. The narrative can be much more effective if they can learn from documentaries such as the HBOs Jane Fonda, 5 Chapters or Ken Burns Civil War. I suggest that if President Xis wife, Peng Liyuan visit the cleaning woman and presented her with a copy of Maos essay on Serving the People, it will be more effective than 100 intellectuals testifying the efficacy of Xis thought.

Hilton Hotels' Efficiency Tradeoff "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Last Wednesday I traveled from my home in Brainerd, Minnesota down to MSP airport, where I hopped on a flight to DFW. After arriving in Dallas, I had a nice evening dinner with my aunt, after which I headed to my reserved room at a Hilton hotel in downtown Fort Worth. It was pretty late, I was very tired, but I had some work to do before my speaking slots the following day at the Texas Municipal League conference. This is all very par for the course for me.

After dropping my car and hauling my bags in, I was told by the front desk that they did not have any rooms. I said, No problem, I have a pre-paid reservation. They told me I wasnt understanding: they didnt have a room. I repliedin my nicest Minnesota waythat, no, I thought they were confused, because I clearly had a room, and gave them my confirmation number.

They then handed me a piece of paper and told me to give it to the front desk at a hotel on the far outskirts of Fort Worthended up being a 35-minute drive due to constructionwhere they would give me a room.

Needless to say, we had a little conversation at that point. I was informed that Hilton overbooks their rooms like an airline and, unfortunately, every room was full. It didnt matter that the Municipal League had already paid. It didnt matter that I was a Hilton Honors member. It didnt matter that they had reserved me a suite and I had confirmed my arrival. No room was available.

Ill spare you the travel-diva whiningthe other hotel was a dive, as well as being pretty remoteso I can skip to the next morning when I arrived back at the hotel for the conference. I spoke with a manager who (kinda) apologized but informed me, in no uncertain terms, that they operated like an airline and the sad, unfortunate reality of that operation is that sometimes people got bounced.

I found the statement like an airline to be a fascinating one. What the manager was alluding to is an ethic of efficiencymaking sure that every room or every seat is full, that every resource is used to its maximum potentialthat is present not just in private business but also in the ways many local governments conceive of their mission.

Indy ignores deadly Palestinian terror, but rushes to pronounce settlers guilty in lethal rock-attack "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Cross posted from UK Media Watch

We recently noted that the Indy was one of three British media outlets which failed to cover the two recent Palestinian terror attacks that claimed the lives of three Israelis Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, Ziv Hajbi, and Ari Fuld but did find time to report on other Israel related stories.

By contrast, the Indy on Saturday night was quick to publish a story about a rock-throwing attack in the West Bank that claimed the life of a Palestinian woman an attack, relatives claim, was carried out by settlers.  However, not only did the Indy jump on the story, but immediately pronounced the settlers guilty, despite the fact that the incident is still under investigation and there arent any suspects.

Heres our tweet to the Indy journalist, Samuel Osborne.

Heres the opening sentence of the Oct. 14th article:

Palestinian woman has been killed after being struck in the head by a stone thrown by Israeli settlers.

However, as other media outlets made clear, claims are based on testimony by the victims relatives who  didnt actually s...

DuPage Township Trustee Oliver defects to New World Order (Fiction) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

During a secret executive session of the DuPage Township Board, Trustee Maripat Oliver announced that she is leaving the Illuminati, and joining the New World Order.

It was fun being a Knight of Chaos for the Illuminati, said Oliver.  It reminded me of my younger days.  Of course, I was also on the wrong path back then.  Now, I think creating global chaos is the wrong path.  So I offer my apologies to the NWO, and I hope they will accept me into their ranks.

Supervisor William Mayer, a member of the NWO, accepted Olivers defection. He then blamed Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar for the turmoil in the Township:  Years ago, Roger said I had to join the New World Order if I wanted to hold any leadership positions in Bolingbrook.  I did and things worked out.  When Roger defected to the Illuminati, he ordered me to defect.  I saw no reason to.  I like it when things are in order.  (Bolingbrook Village Clerk Carol Penning) gave me a warning back in January, and I still said no.  Weve said a lot of things, skipped meetings, gotten sued by a staff member, and are now being torn apart by a secret war.  Lets move forward, and set aside secret society politics so that we can get back to the job of caring for elderly Republican voters, and helping people in general.

Canadian Rachel McKinnon finished ahead of the field at the women's sprint 35-39 age bracket at the world cycling championship on Sunday.

The event was organized by USA Cycling and took place in Los Angeles under the auspices of the International Cycling Federation (ICF).

"The Deadliness of Certainty"

"Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than

~ Laurens van der Post

"Freud recognized that human beings have a sex drive and even a death drive. Is it possible that we also have an aphorism drive? We do seem attracted to pat answers and pithy summation - especially from our politicians. It isn't enough to be wise or effective; one must be quotable.

In fact, aphorism is the oldest written art form, according to aphorism expert and author James Geary ("The World in a Phrase: A Brief History of the Aphorism"). Before famed aphorists Mark Twain, Dorothy Parker and Woody Allen put the party in repartee, Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad were creating buzz. Five thousand years ago, the Egyptians and Chinese were chiseling out sturdy statements of universal truth.

Syria-Jordan Border Crossing Reopens After 3 Years of Closure "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On Monday Jordan reopened its main border crossing with Syria, after a three year closure, AFP reports.

The border crossing, known as Jaber on the Jordanian side and Nassib on the Syrian side, is a key Middle Eastern trade and commerce transit way which was closed after the post was overrun by Western and Gulf-backed terrorist in April 2015. The crossing was a major link not only for direct trade between the neighboring countries but also for longer-distance transit as well a significant source of revenue.

Reopening comes after Syrian Army retook crossing under deal agreement between rebels brokered by Russia.

According to a bilateral agreement between Syria and the Kingdom of Jordan, all passenger and goods traffic will resume daily from 5am to 1pm.

This latest news has coincided with reopening of the Quneitra crossing between Syria and Israels illegally occupied side of Syrias Golan Heights.

Watch how a Sri Lanka community rescues an elephant from a well "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A trapped elephant who fell 25 feet (7.6 meters) into a well in Sri Lanka was eventually freed by locals following a harrowing and risky rescue mission staged by the concerned community. Dozens of locals banded together to save the distressed elephant who was struggling to escape the narrow and steep well in Welikanda, eastern Sri Lanka, on Saturday. Video footage from the scene shows the group using a mini-digger and their bare hands to chisel away at the side of the well. After over an hour of tough work, they eventually eroded the brick enough for the elephant to attempt to maneuver its way out. When the animal continued to struggle, the group filled the well with soil and gravel to give it some footing. Their incredible efforts finally paid off as the plucky elephant was freed, before being guided by firecrackers and delighted cheers back into the wild.

A universal flu vaccine: the mad science solution "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by Jon Rappoport

October 15, 2018

(To join our email list, click here.)

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has launched efforts to create a vaccine that would protect people from most flu strains, all at once, with a single shot.

Over the years, Ive written many articles refuting claims that vaccines are safe and effective, but well put all that aside for the moment and follow the bouncing ball.

Massachusetts Senator and big spender, Ed Markey, has introduced a bill that would shovel no less than a billion dollars toward the universal flu-vaccine project. You like something, it sounds good, you know nothing about the details, throw money at it.

Here is a paragraph from an NIAID press release that mentions one of several research approaches:

NIAID Vaccine Research Center scientists have initiated Phase 1/2 studies of a universal flu vaccine strategy that includes an investigational DNA-based vaccine (called a DNA prime)

This is quite troubling, if you know what the phrase DNA vaccine means. It refers to what the experts are touting as the next generation of immunizations.

Instead of injecting a piece of a virus into a person, in order to stimulate the immune system, synthesized genes would be shot into the body. This isnt traditional vaccination anymore. Its protective gene therapy.

In any such method, where genes are edited, deleted, added, no matter what the pros say, there are always unintended consequences, to use their polite phrase. The ripple effects scramble the genetic structure in numerous unknown ways.

Here is the inconvenient truth about DNA vaccines

They will permanently alter your DNA

The reference is the New York Times, 3/9/15, Protection Without a Vaccine. It describes the frontier of researchthe use of synthetic genes to protect against disease, while changing the genetic makeup of humans. This is not science fiction:

By delivering synthetic genes into the muscles of the [experimental] m...

Keeping Up Appearances S03 E01 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

lousy formatting, audio OK and best viewed full screen. In many ways the audio is the main attraction.

Wikipedia

Keeping Up Appearances is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke. It aired on BBC One from 1990 to 1995. The central character is eccentric and snobbish middle class social climber Hyacinth Bucket(Patricia Routledge), who insists that her surname is pronounced Bouquet.[2]The sitcom follows Hyacinth in her attempts to prove her social superiority, and to gain standing with those she considers upper class. Her attempts are constantly hampered by her lower class extended family, whom she is desperate to hide. Much of the humour comes from the conflict between Hyacinths vision of herself, and the reality of her underclass background. In each episode, she lands in a farcical situation as she battles to protect her social credibility.

The show comprised five series and 44 episodes, four of which are Christmas specials. Production ended when star Patricia Routledge moved on to other projects

Nobel de la Paz, Nadia Murad: Nos violaban sin culpa, como si fuera una cosa natural "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Nadia Murad tena 21 aos cuando, en el verano de 2014, los combatientes del Estado Islmico (EI) atacaron su aldea, en el norte de Irak. Despus de un cerco de dos semanas, el EI reuni a los habitantes de Kocho en la escuela primaria. Las mujeres fueron separadas de los hombres, llevados en furgonetas y asesinados. Las mujeres jvenes fueron vendidas como esclavas.

La joven tena varios propietarios. Fue violada y golpeada. Cuando se hartaban de ella, la vendan o la ofrecan a otro o la entregaban para el entretenimiento de los guardias. En varios meses de cautiverio, Nadia Murad fue esclava domstica, mercanca en feria de esclavos de Mosul y juguete sexual en los puestos fronterizos para combatientes de paso.

Cuando logr huir, con la ayuda de una familia musulmana, descubri que haban asesinado a sus padres, familiares y amigos. Decidi contar su historia, denunciar el genocidio planeado y perpetrado por el EI sobre los yazidis. Nadia Murad fue nombrada embajadora de buena voluntad de la ONU para la dignidad de los supervivientes de la trata de seres humanos y ha escrito un libro.

Esta es una entrevista de Notcias Magazine con Nadia Murad, premio Nobel de la Paz 2018, en Berln donde vive.

Cuando lleg a Mosul, para ser vendida en un mercado de esclavas, constat que la vida en la ciudad transcurra con normalidad Eso fue un choque para usted?
Cuando el EI lleg a Mosul, haba cerca de dos millones de personas en la ciudad. Y la mayora no sali de all. Continuaron sus vidas normalmente todos los das. Podran haber dejado el territorio del EI, pero decidieron quedarse. Muchos cristianos y chies lograron huir de esas reas. Para los musulmanes sunitas habra sido mucho ms fcil, el camino estaba abierto. Pero ellos optaron por no hacerlo.

En su libro, cuenta que la gente vea a las mujeres yazidis ser llevadas en camiones, amontonadas como animales, gritando por socorro, y no hacan nada Estaban paralizados por el miedo?
No era por miedo. Incluso aquellos que no estaban combatiendo, ni participaron en las violaciones de mujeres, sacaban provecho de la situacin, porque saquearon las propiedades de los yazidis y de los cristianos. O simplemente no quisieron tener problemas. Pero, en mi opinin, alguien que asiste a un crimen y no denuncia, ni ayuda a la vctima, es cmplice del crimen. La gente podra haber actuado. Podran haberse rebelado. O al menos haber abandonado la ciudad.

PUP Cllr John Kyle: the country is drifting like a boat towards turbulent rapids with no one at the helm "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For the second year in a row, the Progressive Unionist Partys conference wasnt open to the media and despite some conversations with the party, an invitation was not extended.

Extracts from Dr John Kyles speech at Saturdays conference in Antrim have, however, been released, detailing the deputy leaders analysis of the way forward regarding Stormont structures and a culture of partnership.

Nothing has changed but everything has changed. Another 12 months without Stormont but:

  • The DUP are mired in controversy
  • Welfare reform is now biting, and Universal Credit has begun to roll out; expect chaos
  • Mary Lou McDonald has replaced Gerry Adams as SF President
  • The Legacy Consultation has closed
  • Brexit is imminent

At a critical time of historic change, the country is drifting like a boat towards turbulent rapids with no one at the helm, not even a Secretary of State.

How can we move forward?

We want to champion the benefits of being part of to such diverse, culturally rich and globally influential family.

Japan raises concerns over Pacifics debt to China "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Japans foreign minister has raised concerns  about the high levels of debt accrued by some Pacific Island nations and said his country wants to help resolve the problem.

Foreign Minister Taro Kono made the comments on Monday while visiting New Zealand, where he met  his counterpart Winston Peters.

Some observers have become alarmed at the growth in Chinese lending in the Pacific and worry that small countries such as Tonga and Vanuatu are becoming beholden to China because of their high debt levels.

Kono didnt mention China specifically in his comments. But he said the Pacific region was important in a strategic sense to both Japan and New Zealand.

Peters said New Zealand was also concerned about the loans and the ability of small island nations to repay them.

Were looking very seriously at that, saying What does it mean for us when those nations may forfeit the very asset value that theyve sought to develop, and have it owned by some other country? he said.

Peters said neither Japan nor New Zealand had gone so far as to offer to repay the loans directly.

We understand the problem, Peters added. Weve got our eyes wide open.

Konos visit to New Zealand was the first by a Japanese foreign minister in five years. It marks a warming relationship between the two nations over the past year since Jacinda Ardern became New Zealands prime minister.

Kono thanked New Zealand for deciding last month to deploy a maritime patrol plane to Japan as part of an effort to enforce UN sanctions against North Korea.

Australia, Canada and the US are also helping Japan monitor offshore ship-to- ship transfers of oil allegedly involving North Korean ships, which would violate UN sanctions imposed over the Norths nuclear and missile programs.

Regarding the situation in North Korea, we reaffirm our cooperation to achieve a complete, verifiable and irreversible disposal of all the weapons of mass destruction and the ballistic missiles of all ranges, Kono said through an interpreter.

The company's official position on content moderation remains political neutrality, a spokeswoman told me in an email:

Google is committed to free expression supporting the free flow of ideas is core to our mission. Where we have developed our own content policies, we enforce them in a politically neutral way. Giving preference to content of one political ideology over another would fundamentally conflict with our goal of providing services that work for everyone.

Of course, it's impossible to read the report or Google's statement without considering Project Dragonfly. According to Ryan Gallagher's ongoing reporting at The Intercept, Google's planned Chinese search engine will enable anything but the free flow of ideas. Even in an environment where American users are calling for tech platforms to limit users' freedoms in exchange for more safety and security, many still recoil at the idea of a search engine that bans search terms in support of an authoritarian regime.

There comes a point when you have to stand up to bullies. After more than two years of being ruthlessly pushed around by the EU, it is time for the UK to resist.

We have quite properly volunteered to protect the rights of EU nationals in the UK. So far we have nothing to show for our generosity and understanding. We are now entering the moment of crisis. Matters cannot go on as they are.

In presuming to change the constitutional arrangements of the United Kingdom, the EU is treating us with naked contempt. Like some chess player triumphantly forking our king and our queen, the EU Commission is offering the UK government what appears to be a binary choice.

It is a choice between the break-up of this country, or the subjugation of this country, between separation or submission. It is between treating Northern Ireland as an economic colony of the EU, or treating the whole of the UK as such a colony. It is a choice between protecting the Union or saving Brexit. It is a choice between two exquisitely embarrassing varieties of humiliation. It is an entirely false choice. It must be rejected, and it must be rejected now.

No Prime Minister, no government, no MP and no democrat could conceivably accept the first option that unless North-south trade can be carried on in Ireland without any need for extra controls, Northern Ireland should remain forever a part of the EU customs union and single market.

Arlene Foster warns EU: no Brexit deal can create border between Northern Ireland and Britain (video)

Journalists Shouldnt Be Copy-and-Pasting Police Press Releases "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

After right-wing billionaire Joe Ricketts shut down the local news site DNAinfo last year, one week after the outlets New York City workers unionized, there was justifiable outrage. The move highlighted the dangers of corporate and billionaire-backed media capriciously operating under the umbrella of the super wealthy, who would fold rather than recognize basic labor rights.

After the initial shock, employees at DNAinfo Chicago announced they were effectively re-opening the brand under a new name, Block Club Chicago, with a new funding modelone seeded by an inspired KickStarter that raised over $180,000. Founded as a nonprofit and underwritten by foundation support from groups like Civil, Block Club Chicago was to usher in a new era of local reporting, promising nonpartisan and essential coverage of Chicagos diverse neighborhoods.

Except Block Club Chicago suffers, particularly on the issue of crime reporting, from the same stunted ethical scope all other local corporate media does. Again and again, Block Clubs crime reporting consists of simply copy-and-pasting Chicago police blotters about alleged crimes, with no effort to report any side other than the polices. When they do engage in actual reporting, the vast majority of the time, its just more police stenography.

A survey of Block Clubs crime reporting from a two-week span (9/19/1810/3/18) found that 61 percent of all sourced claims in their crime articles came directly from the Chicago Police Department. Thirty-nine percent were from non-police parties (almost entirely victims of crimes, their families or their legal teams). There were zero claims or quotes from adversarial sources, such as defense attorneys, accused persons or local activists watchdogging the CPD.

In addition, these stories often ended with a plea to the reader to call a snitch line (Anyone with information is urged to call detectives at (312) 744-8263 is a common tag) so they can, presumably, report suspicious activitydeputizing vigilante readers to go on the hunt for criminals.

Indonesian President Joko Jokowi Widodo warned that winter is coming, borrowing an expression from the Emmy-winning television series Game of Thrones made by HBO from an adaptation of a series of novels written by George RR Martin.

He made this reference in front of a packed hall at the plenary session of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Annual Meetings in Nusa Dua, Bali, over the weekend.

With all the problems that the global economy currently faces, it is appropriate to say that winter is coming, Jokowi said.

He said weak coordination and cooperation, particularly on the part of developed countries, had resulted in additional uncertainty in the global economy, citing the drastic increase in the global oil price and turmoil in the financial markets of emerging markets as recent examples.

We rely on you, the worlds fiscal and monetary policymakers, to maintain the commitment to global cooperation. I am very hopeful that you, sirs and madams, will contribute to encouraging the worlds leaders to respond appropriately to the situation, Jokowi said.

To curb the impact of climate change, for instance, the world may need to increase an annual investment in renewable energy by around 400 per cent globally, to save the planet and many lives, he noted.

I do hope you will do your part to encourage leaders to address the situation appropriately. Monetary and fiscal policies that can shoulder trade wars, technology disruption and market uncertainties are necessary, he said.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde, also spoke at the same event, and acknowledged the global imbalances caused by trade, which despite having created prosperity, also caused a backlash, as too many people felt that they had been left behind, which is why there has been an upsurge in populism globally.

To cope with the changing economic landscape, she proposed a new multilateralism, which is more inclusive, more people-centred and more results-oriented.

This partnership is integral to the new multilateralism not least because tensions arising from exclusion and climate change do not respect national borders. In that sense, solidarity is self-interes...

Four Huge LNG Tankers Pass Through Panama Canal in One Day "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

LNG Tanker Gemmata departs Cove Point in Maryland on March 1, 2018

Panama Canal reaches new Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) milestone

From an Article by David Rowlands, LNG Industry, October 2, 2018

The Panama Canal Authority has announced that the Canal has reached a new milestone, after four LNG ships with beams of up to 160 ft (49 m) transited the waterway in a single day through the Neopanamax Locks.

This breaks the record set by the Canal on 17 April 2018, when three LNG vessels transited the waterway on the same day.

Ribera del Duero Knutsen (cargo capacity of 173 000 m3) and Maran Gas Pericles (cargo capacity of 174 000 m3) transited northbound, while Torben Spirit (cargo capacity of 174 000 m3) and Oceanic Breeze (cargo capacity of 155 300 m3) transited southbound, facilitating international trade between customers in South Korea, Japan, Chile and the US Gulf Coast.

Resulting from the experience acquired with the transit of more than 4200 Neopanamax vessels, the Panama Canal introduced changes to its Transit Reservation System to offer two slots per day to LNG vessels. These modifications have allowed the expanded Canals capacity to be optimised, in order to meet specific demands such as the transit of four LNG vessels today.

The modifications, which were announced in August this year and that came into effect on 1 October, also allow lifting certain daylight restrictions for LNG vessels, as well as meetings between LNG vessels in opposite directions in Gatun Lake.

Panama Canal Administrator, Jorge L. Quijano, said: The transit of these four LNG ships in just one day demonstrates the Panama Canals commitment to maximising the efficiency, flexibility and reliability of its service to all customers.

With these modifications now effective, the Canal claims that it has reinforced its ability to handle the growing LNG transit demand from the US once the different export terminals begin operation.

Riyadh Threatens to Retaliate against Any Sanctions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Riyadh (TNA) Saudi Arabia rejected threats to punish it over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul, saying the kingdom would retaliate against any sanctions with tougher measures, the official state news agency said on Sunday.

It came after US President Donald Trump threatened severe punishment for Riyadh if it turned out Khashoggi, a prominent critic of Saudi authorities and a legal resident of the United States, was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The Kingdom affirms its total rejection of any threats and attempts to undermine it, whether by threatening to impose economic sanctions, using political pressures, or repeating false accusations the official Saudi Press Agency quoted an unnamed government source as saying, according to Reuters.

The Kingdom also affirms that if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action, and that the Kingdoms economy has an influential and vital role in the global economy the source added without elaborating.

The threat caused the stock market of the worlds biggest oil exporter to lose as much as $33 billion of its value on Sunday in one of the first signs of the economic pain that Riyadh could suffer over the affair.

The Saudi equities index TASI plunged as much as 7 percent in its biggest drop since December 2014, when oil prices were crashing. It later recovered partially to stand 5.0 percent lower shortly before the close.

Turkey believes Khashoggi was deliberately killed in the consulate and his body removed. Riyadh has rejected those claims.

A senior member of Saudi Arabias ruling family, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, has met Turkeys President Tayyip Erdogan to discuss Khashoggis disappearance, two sources with knowledge of the matter said without providing details of the talks.

The New York Times Whitewashes Nikki Haley "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Washington D.C. (AHT) The decampment of Nikki Haley from Trumps military regime is, or ought to be, a nonstory. The United States ambassador to the United Nations is a ceremonial position that serves no purpose. The very idea of it is absurd. The US is a law unto itself, readily violating the UN Charter whenever the latters principles get in the way of the formers imperial agenda. Washington didnt bother obtaining a Security Council resolution for its invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq; nor did it get one for its bombing of, and deployment of troops in, Syria; nor did it get one for its protracted bombardment of Yugoslavia; nor did it get one for its various military operations in Yemen.

True, Washington obtained a Security Council resolution re: Libya in 2011. Resolution 1973 authorized the imposition of a no-fly zone on Libyan military aviation and the establishment of safe areas in places exposed to shelling as a precautionary measure. It also expressed a strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity (my emphasis) of the Libyan state. What did Washington and its NATO flunkies do? They immediately breached the terms of the resolution by relentlessly shelling Gaddafis security forces on behalf of the armed opposition.

While Gaddafi fled, NATO bombed his convoy. Gaddafi was captured, sodomized and murdered by a gang of rebels. Hillary Clinton (literally) cheered. The upshot: Libya, once North Africas most prosperous and stable country, became a failed state overrun by warlords and Wahhabi terrorists, and the main conduit through which all kinds of African migrants make it across to Europe. It remains so today; and Europe, in no small part due to said migrant crisis, continues its descent into political disarray.

The United Nations is useful insofar as it can provide cover for American crimes. Otherwise its merely a thing to be sidestepped and disregarded. Its of no consequence who serves as the empires official envoy to the UN. Still, Haleys resignation is a welcome circumstance, if only because well be spared her vapid effusions going forward. This is the woman who has repeatedly cast blame on Iran for the cataclysm in Yemen, where Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have been deliberately murdering civilians, millions of whom are starving to death, since 2015using US-made munitions. So atrocious is the Saudi-led massacre that even CNN has begun to report on it objectively.

For Haley, though, it pales in comparison to the handful of rockets fired at Saudi Arabia by the Houthis, Irans so-called proxy.

The Carbon Brief Profile: South Africa "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the fourth article in a series on how key emitters are responding to climate change, Carbon Brief looks at South Africas heavy dependence on coal and expanding effort to develop renewables.

South Africa is the worlds 14th largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Its CO2 emissions are principally due to a heavy reliance on coal.

However, a recently released draft electricity plan proposes a significant shift away from the fuel, towards gas and renewables. While coal would continue to play a role for decades, the plan would see no new plants built after 2030 and four-fifths of capacity closed by 2050.

South Africa has pledged to peak its emissions between 2020 and 2025, allowing them to plateau for roughly a decade before they start to fall.

The final image is an image of the present: while representatives of indigenous peoples from different parts of the world celebrated the closing of the international symposium on the Rights of Nature (Quito, September 27-28, 2018) singing their traditional songs, the rest of the public, mostly mestizos and whites, were taking pictures and filming.

The message was clear: after two days of long, drawn-out talks, discussions and statements at the Universidad Andina in Quito, we, the industrialized ones, need a keepsake of those who are still in contact with nature.

A token that takes us back to our own past, when we - like all humans enjoyed an intimate relationship with the Earth and the spirits, and were aware that our survival depended on their protection.

Today, after having created an abysmal system of exploitation of nature, we want to reconnect. Even through an image or a video recording. As one young architecture student said during one of the panels at the symposium, referring to indigenous peoples: "I want to learn from you, I need to know the essence of what I am doing".

Ten years after

Ten years after Ecuador became the first State in the world to include the Rights of Nature in its constitution, the rights of industry and trade prevail. The spiritual emptiness of urban youth prevail, the multiple frustrations of adults prevail, and resistance on the part of indigenous peoples too. Wild and excessive exploitation of nature prevails - not its rights.

Missing $21 Trillion: Entire Federal Budget Now National Security Secret" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Missing $21 Trillion: 
Entire Federal Budget Now National Security Secret" 
By Greg Hunters USAWatchdog.com 

"Michigan State Economics Professor Mark Skidmore made a stunning discovery late last year. Using publicly available government accounting reports, he revealed there was $21 trillion in what he calls missing money from the Department of Defense (DOD) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The data he used has been scrubbed, all accounting records are heavily redacted and now the federal government has declared its accounting falls under national security. Dr. Skidmore can no longer get the government to respond. Dr. Skidmore explains, At this point, they are no longer responding to any of my inquiries. They are just not answering, and that is very astounding, and you can go on and look at the report yourself and see all of it blacked out. I actually lost sleep over that. That really bothered me. Now, they are not even using standard accounting financial reporting rules. They are just moving things around and not telling anybody. So, first, all of this stuff is hidden because it is a national security issue, and now they are just changing the accounting standards. I would ask is that constitutional? I dont think so. Does it match any of our financial reporting laws? I dont think so. I am not sure what gives the government the authority to make that decision, and, yet, its happening.

The revelation that there is an additional $21 trillion dollars that cannot be accounted for on top of the more than $21 trillion officially in federal debt is an astounding number. It is probably the most important data point since the Federal Reserve was founded in 1913. Dr. Skidmore says, Its a huge amount of money to not be able to explain, and they are not explaining it.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, however, is said to still be planning to attend. That flow of Saudi cash is apparently pretty hard to resist.

Nevertheless, mounting threats from around the world to punish Saudi Arabia, including the possibility of U.S. sanctions, are rattling the oil-soaked nation and drawing sharp words in response.

The Kingdom affirms its total rejection of any threats and attempts to undermine it, whether by threatening to impose economic sanctions, using political pressures, or repeating false accusation, a government source reportedly told the official Saudi Press Agency. The Kingdom also affirms that if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action.

Hence, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya channels general manager Turki Aldakhil, in our call of the day, warned we could see an explosive move in oil prices.

Evacuating Nauru: Mdecins Sans Frontires and Australias Refugee Dilemma "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

MSF, at least in its operating protocols, is meant to be solidly neutral and diligently impartial.  But neutrality tends to be compromised before the spectacle of suffering.  Bearing witness disturbs the mood and narrows objective distance.  On June 17, 2016, by way of example, the organisation stated that it could not accept funding from the EU or the Member States while at the same time treating the victims of their policies! Its that simple.  Central to this, as Katharine Weatherhead explained in an analysis of the organisations stance, is the ethic of refusal and tmoignage, the idea of being a witness to suffering.

Australias gulag mimicry a prison first, justice second mentality that governs boat arrivals has done wonders to challenge any stance of distance humanitarian organisations might purport to have.  To see the suffering such policies cause is to make converts of the stony hearted.  What matters in this instance the MSF condemnation of Australias innately brutal anti-refugee policy on Nauru is its certitude.

The Australian government has taken the high, icy road and left the UN Refugee Convention in shambolic ruin; it insists, repeatedly, that refugees are to be discriminated against on the basis of how they arrive to the country; it also suggests, with a hypnotically disabling insistence that keeping people in open air prisons indefinitely is far better than letting them drown.  (We, the message goes, stopped the boats and saved lives!)

MSF, which had been working on the island since November 2017 primarily providing free psychological and psychiatric services, was given its marching orders by Naurus authorities last week.  Visas for the organisations workers were cancelled to make it clear there was no intention of inviting us back, explained MSF Australia director Paul McPhun.

OUR USPTO coverage reached an unexpected halt last night at around 6PM. Our host is shutting down soon. Hes an old friend of mine who hosted the site as a favour for nearly a decade. Speaking to alternative hosts, it seems likely that our hosting costs would at least quadruple. Its a painful experience. I barely slept; its hard to fall asleep. Certain readers, some of whom connected in one way or another to the EPO, expressed concern about the downtime (almost half a day). The problem is far broader than a downtime, caused by a routing issue among other things.

This is scary and dangerous to the prospects of science and technology in Europe. Its like patents take priority over facts. It should never be like this.Techright is turning 12 in a few weeks. Ive dedicated most of my adult life to this site. Im not asking for sympathy, I just want to reaffirm and reassure to readers that the site has always been financially independent. Thats never going to change.

I can envision some readers asking questions like, what about the cloud? As if sending ones blog to some private company can assure independence theres plenty of evidence to the contrary. There are many ways in which a centralised blogging platform censors those who participate, with a broadening brush by which they sweep away particular voices.

New Canadian studies prompt researcher to voice grave concerns about fluoride
Last week three new studies were published on fluoride adding more weight to an already overwhelming body of evidence that fluoridation is not safe.
I have grave concerns about the health effects of fluoride said Ashley Malin, lead author of the Canadian Fluoride-Thyroid study and a researcher at the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
Published in Environmental International, the study found that the thyroid stimulating (TSH) hormone of pregnant Canadian women with low iodine was increased by fluoride. High TSH levels indicates the thyroid is not working properly. Hypothyroidism is known to cause depression, anxiety and obesity.
second study, published in Environmental Health Perspectives, found that most fluoride exposure for Canadians came from fluoridated drinking water and that pregnant women in fluoridated areas had nearly twice as much fluoride in their urine as pregnant women in non-fluoridated areas. The lead author of this study, an associate professor and researcher at York University, Christine Till, says I am certain the safety of fluoride ingestion has not been proven.

Few are aware that Canadas aid agency has spent tens of millions of dollars on media projects designed in part to draw journalists into its orbit and shape perceptions of Ottawas international policies.

For example, Find Out How Canada is Back! was the title of Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) Night for Rights fundraiser at the start of October. The keynote speaker at the Toronto Hilton was Minister of International Development Marie-Claude Bibeau.

The minister almost certainly chose not to discuss her governments arms sales to Saudi Arabia, backing for brutal mining companies, NATO deployments, antagonism towards Palestinian rights, efforts to topple the Venezuelan government, promotion of military spending, etc. Rather than reflect the thrust of this countrys foreign policy the Canada is Back theme is a sop to a government thats provided JHR with millions of dollars.

As part of JHRs partnership with the Government of Canada and our Embassies abroad, it has drawn powerful media workers to a worldview aligned with Canadian foreign policy. JHRs list of international trainers includes CTV news host Lisa LaFlamme, former Toronto Star editor Michael Cooke and former Globe and Mail editor John Stackhouse.

VOD Site Branded Notorious Market Hits Back at the MPAA "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Every year, trade groups representing movie, TV show, music, video game, and a broad range of other content companies make submissions to the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR).

These documents outline sites, services, platforms and other locations that rightsholders believe should be branded notorious markets in the USTRs annual overview of overseas infringing businesses.

The USTRs final report carries significant weight and often guides the U.S. Governments attitudes toward foreign governments when it comes to enforcement of intellectual property rights.

The latest submission by the MPAA highlights many of the usual suspects, including The Pirate Bay, RARBG, 1337x, Rutracker, and Torrentz2. However, it also includes a lesser-known Poland-based video site that on closer inspection seems a little out of place.

Cda.pl is Polands most popular piracy website where users from around the world find and view copyright infringing content, the MPAA wrote.

It is so big that it is now more popular than several legitimate VOD services in the country. Cda.pl had 68.13 million worldwide visitors with nearly 13 million unique visitors in July 2018 according to SimilarWeb data and currently enjoys a global Alexa rank of 1,477 and a local rank of just 15 in Poland.

Continuing to paint a picture of blatant piracy, the MPAA highlights that the owner of CDA.pl CWMedia S.A. attempts to hide where their site is hosted, using Cloudflare to mask server IP addresses and reverse proxies located at OVH in Poland to curb rights holders ability to identify its precise host.

While these kinds of claims are common in MPAA filings against pirate sites, according to the company the MPAA is well off the mark with its notorious market branding. As a result, it will now intervene in the case using official channels.

CDA.pl is a very large and very popular service, often more popular than other VOD services in Poland. Yes its true. Were big and were popular, the site said in a statement.

On CDA.pl, you can find videos that users have uploaded that breach copyright law. Yes, such cases happen, just like everyone else we emphasize everyone, including social video websites where users add content. The same problem applies to CDA.pl, as well as YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo and others.

The site says that in common with similar upload platforms, it takes positive steps to deal with infringing content when it beco...

Degaussing Coil To Restore Gameplay Like Its 1985 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

You may think that cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs and monitors have gone the way of the dinosaur, but youd be wrong. Many still have them for playing video games at home or in arcades, for vintage computing, and yes, even for watching television programs. [Nesmaniac] uses his TV for playing Super Mario Bros but for several years it had a red area in the top right corner due to a nearby lightning strike. Sadly, it stood out particularly well against the games blue background. His solution was to make a degaussing coil.

Homemade degaussing coilWe have an article explaining degaussing in detail but in brief, the red was caused by that area of the metal shadow mask at the front of the display becoming magnetized by the lightning strike. One way to get rid of the red area is to bring a coil near it and gradually move the coil away. The coil has AC from a wall socket running through it, producing an oscillating magnetic field which randomizes the magnetic field on the shadow mask, restoring the colors to their former glory.

Youll find [Nesmaniacs] video explaining how he made it below. Its a little cartoonish but the details are all there, along with the necessary safety warnings. His degaussing coil definitely qualifies as a hack. The coil itself came from a 15 CRT monitor and his on/o...

When Yesterday's Agriculture Feeds Today's Water Pollution "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Submitted via IRC for chromas

When yesterday's agriculture feeds today's water pollution

A study led by researchers at Universit de Montral quantifies for the first time the maximum amount of nutrients specifically, phosphorus that can accumulate in a watershed before additional pollution is discharged into downriver ecosystems. That average threshold amount is 2.1 tonnes per square kilometre of land, the researchers estimate in their study published today in Nature Geoscience. "Beyond this, further phosphorus inputs to watersheds cause a significant acceleration of (phosphorus) loss in runoff."

[...] Focusing on 23 watersheds feeding the St. Lawrence River in Quebec, the researchers reconstructed historic land-use practices in order to calculate how much phosphorus has accumulated on the land over the past century. The two main sources of phosphorus to watersheds, the land adjacent to tributaries, come from agriculture (fertilizers and animal manure) and from the human population (through food needs and sewage).

Using Quebec government data, the researchers matched the estimated accumulation with phosphorus concentrations measured in the water for the last 26 years. Since the watersheds they studied had different histories some had been used intensively for agriculture for decades whereas others were forested and pristine this method allowed the researchers to establish a gradient of different phosphorus accumulations among sites. In so doing, they were able to see at what point the watershed "tipped" or reached a threshold and began to leak considerably more phosphorus into the water.

"Think of the land as a sponge," Maranger said. "After a while, sponges that absorb too much water will leak. In the case of phosphorus, the land absorbs it year after year after year, and after a while, its retention capacity is reduced. At that point historical phosphorus inputs contribute more to what reaches our water."

Jaime Semprun: The abyss repopulates itself "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Jaime Semprun is among a generation of political militants marked by the events of May 68 in france and beyond, contributing to a body of theoretical work that paralleled and overlapped with that of the Situationists, and other heterodox marxists and anarchists.

Originally published by Autonomies.

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

Among the things that people do not want to hear, and that they do not want to see, when in reality they are displayed right before their eyes, are the following: the fact that all the technological improvements that have simplified their lives so much that almost nothing living remains of them, that they have fostered the emergence of something that is no longer a civilization, that barbarism arises, like a natural phenomenon, from this simplified, mechanized, soulless life, and that, of all the terrible results of this experience of dehumanization to which they have made such a major contribution, the most terrifying is their progeny, since the latter is what, in the final analysis, upholds all the rest. That is why, when the citizen-ecologist attempts to pose the most disturbing question by asking, What kind of world shall we leave to our children?, he avoids posing this other, really disturbing question: To what kind of children shall we leave the world?

The barbarians do not come from a distant and backward periphery of commodity abundance, but from its very heart. Those who have been able to some extent to keep their sensibilities intact, and have striven to reduce their relations with the technologies of alienated life to a minimum, can be persuaded of this by going among those who have been formed and deformed since infancy by this apparatus of impoverishment; they are as far removed from nature as they are from reason, and by virtue of this hallmark we recognize barbarism.

Branch.io Flaws may have affected as many as 685 million individuals "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

More than 685 million users may have been exposed to XSS attacks due to a flaw in Branch.io service used by Tinder, Shopify, and many others.

Security Affairs was the first to publish the news of a DOM-XSS Bug Affecting Tinder, Shopify, Yelp, and other dating application.

The flaws were disclosed a few days ago by the researchers at vpnMentor who explained that an attacker could have been exploited them to access Tinder users profiles.

After initial reconnaissance steps were done, a Tinder domain with multiple client-side security issues was found meaning hackers could have access to users profiles and details.

Immediately after finding these vulnerabilities, we contacted Tinder via their responsible disclosure program and started working with them. reads the analysis published by vpnMentor.

We learned that the vulnerable endpoint isnt owned by Tinder, but by branch.io, an attribution platform used by many big corporations around the globe. The Tinder security team helped us get in touch with them, and accordingly, theyve put out a timely patch.

Tinders security team immediately launched an investigation and discovered that the go.tinder.com domain was actually an alias for Branch.io-owned custom.bnc.lt.

The Branch.io company provides the leading mobile linking platform, with solutions that unify user experience and measurement across different devices, platforms, and channels.

A large number of major firms uses an alias to point the same custom.bnc.lt,  including Yelp, Western Union, Shopify, RobinHood, Letgo, imgur, Lookout, fair.com and Cuvva, vpnMentor said.

According to vpnMentor, the flaws may have affected as many as 685 million individuals using the vulnerable services.

The DOM-based XSS discovered by the experts would have been easy to exploit in many web browsers, researchers pointed out that Branch.ios failed to use a Content Security Policy (CSP).

Can President-elect Lopez Obrador pull Mexico out of slumber? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

After decades of stagnation, corruption and deadly dependency on the United States, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is considered by many ordinary people, as well as by intellectuals, to be the last chance for Mexico.

His only hope is Obrador

Two important news developments are circulating all over North America: US President Donald Trump will not attend the inauguration of the Mexican left-wing President elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO). And, yes, despite all tensions and disagreements, the new deal to replace NAFTA has been reached. It is called the USMCA  the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

Paradoxically, if Obrador is to fulfill at least half of his electoral promises, it would inevitably lead to a clash between Mexico and both the United States and Canada. The US absorbs around 80 percent of Mexican exports. Various Mexican intellectuals believe that their country was, until now, nothing more than a colony of their big brother in the north. Canadian mining companies are brutally exploiting Mexicos natural resources, and united with local politicians and paramilitaries, are tormenting almost defenseless native people.

National Folcloric Ballet of Mexico marching, joining revolution

After decades of inertia and decay, Mexico is ready for dramatic, essential change which, many argue, will this time not arrive directly under red banners and through revolutionary songs, but with the carefully calculated, precise moves of a chess player.

Only a genius can break, without terrible casualties, the deadly embrace of the United States. And many believe that President-elect Obrador is precisely such leader.

Not a poker player, but a chess player

Mexico is in a bad mood, despite the victory of a left-wing leader. Hope is in the air, but it is fragile hope, some even say angry hope. Decades of stagnation, corruption and deadly dependency on the US, have had an extremely negative impact on the nation.

Has the evil US military corporate complex appropriated Chomsky, the man and his linguistics, without Chomsky in the know? Nothing is impossible, as Chomsky says, but many things are unlikely.

Noam Chomsky. Flickr/Andrew Rusk. Some rights reserved.

With a British Knight leading the charge, there is a whole new ragtag army on the offensive against Chomsky, armed with spurious arguments and feeble deceptions. While I have reviewed Chris Knights Decoding Chomsky in some detail, there is now a whole new industry to bolster Knights contentions, notably on his Scienceandrevolution website, and lately on openDemocracy, with contributors such as Knight himself and follow-up articles from Frederick J.Newmayer, Randy Allen Harris, Les Levidow and David Golumbia. Here I will contend with Les Levidows argument.

In the first instance one would not expect a forum like openDemocracy to let loose on a venerable old man who has agitated much more for open democracy than any of the above contributors put together. While Chomsky is subject to critique like everyone else, one would expect a critique of Chomsky to be well founded and well argued. Reactionaries from the right of the political spectrum have always attacked Chomsky on an utterly groundless basis, and from all directions, be it personal, regarding his public personae, or his manifestation as a linguist. To lead the charge from the left field, as does Knight and his cohorts, is som...

Millions of Californians jobs could be affected by automation If we dont do anything, then it will turn into an apocalypse. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The decisions made by the states next governor will affect generations to come. Read what Californians think should take priority and tell us what you think here.

Looking at a map of California on a projector screen, Johannes Moenius, an economics professor at the University of Redlands, hovered his mouse over the Inland Empire, which glowed with a splotch of red pixels.

The colored dots signified how susceptible an area would be to job losses caused by automation. And the alarm-bell red that covered Riverside, San Bernardino and Ontario signaled high risk roughly 63% of tasks performed by workers in the area could be automated in the future.

By MELANIE MASON
Los Angeles Times
Image result for california, farm workers, photos

To Moenius, the rise of robots in warehouses, factories and fast-food restaurants presents danger for places like the Inland Empire, where most residents work in logistics and the service industry and just 21% of adults have a four-year degree. As technology transforms the nature of work in California, how do people most at risk find their way to new jobs?

Were facing a major challenge, Moenius said. If we dont do anything, then it will turn into an apocalypse.

Whether confronting an increasingly automated labor market or grappling with how the gig economy is reshaping the relationship between companies and their workers, Californias next governor will have to address the changing nature of work.

That could mean rethinking how to educate Californians, remaking labor laws or considering major social safety net proposals such as a universal basic income. State government might not be able to control change sweeping the workplace, but it will have to deal with the fallout.

Which jobs are most susceptible to automation?

According to a study done by the Institute of Spatial Economic Analysis, the jobs most susceptible to automation across the state include bookkeepers, accountants and cashiers. More specialized jobs, such as doctors, therapists and social workers are less susceptible.

Race, porn, and education: will the UKs 2020 sex education update rise to the challenge? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The state must abandon all prudery in the interest of rectifying the time-lag leaving a whole generation of young people open to the unfettered excesses of the porn industry.

lead lead SceenShot: Pornhub The World's Most Viewed Categories.

In July, the Ministry for Education announced that sex education would become mandatory for all children by September 2020. Beyond the minimum mandatory requirements within the science curriculum, it is currently only compulsory for state schools to offer 'sex and relationship'. Yet this stipulation only comprises approximately a third of schools in England, as it excludes both academies and free schools.

The curriculum is also grossly inadequate. Current guidelines havent changed since 2000, with LGBTQ+ experiences, consent, and internet pornography swept under the carpet. This discrepancy signifies a time lag of almost twenty-five years from the widespread availability of online pornography, and its iron-grip monopoly on sex education for the internet generation.

As the government seeks consultancy before updating the curriculum in 2020, there is a whole generation of young people who have grown up uncritically watching pornography at their most impressionable stage in their mental development. A Middlesex University study from 2016 found that 94% of all children had watched pornography by the age of fourteen. Other studies and reports have suggested that some start watching pornography as early as the age of six. This would not be a problem were it not already a well-established fact that the porn industry has for too long has been driven by the worst aspects of the market and the internet.

The appeal of populist nationalism in the age of accelerated change "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

What drives support for the populist, radical right and what do the actors offer their voters?  The endangered nation is a key trope.

UKIP party supporters take their seats during the UKIP Annual Conference at Doncaster Racecourse, 2015. Anna Gowthorpe/Press Association. All rights reserved,

In my new book Nationalist Responses to the Crises in Europe: old and new hatreds I explore the emergence of populist nationalism in contemporary Europe. Drawing on multi-sited fieldwork carried out in 2015 in England, Hungary and Norway amongst the voters and supporters of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), Fidesz and Jobbik, and the Progress Party, I examine the emerging resistance towards migrants and diversity.

The rise and appeal of populist nationalism must be analyzed in relation to the increasing economic, culture and political competition linked to globalization. These affect countries and regions unevenly. But in all, the insecurities and societal ruptures associated with rapid, accelerated change have enabled the heating of populist nationalisms in local struggles over resources and recognition.

In Norway, characterized by prosperity and a robust welfare state, the anti-immigration discourses propagated by the neoliberal Progress Party focused on cultural accounts of difference rather than on economic grievance. In Hungary and England, resistance towards immigration did unite the voters, but in addition discourses of economic insecurity and the uncertainty of work were also propagated by Eurosceptic PRR parties and their supporters.

While the divide between cultural and economic insecurity has value when applied to macro contexts, I challenge its applicability at the level of everyday life. Through an anthropological in-depth study of local lifeworlds I show how cultural identity cannot be separated from economic conditions.

Live with God in that secret place of the spirit and you will have a feeling of being on the right road. You will have a deep sense of satisfaction. The world will have meaning and you will have a place in the world, work to do that counts in the eternal order of things. Many things will work for you and with you, as long as you feel you are on Gods side.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may have a sense of the eternal value of the work I do. I pray that I may not only work for now, but also for eternity.

From Twenty Four Hours A Day

Nine quotes from Christian prodigy and philosopher Blaise Pascal

1. The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.

2. All of humanitys problems stem from mans inability to sit quietly in a room alone.

3. Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.

4. All men seek happiness. This is without exception. Whatever different means they employ, they all tend to this end. The cause of some going to war, and of others avoiding it, is the same desire in both, attended with different views. The will never takes the least step but to this object. This is the motive of every action of every man, even of those who hang themselves.

5. Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. Love still stands when all else has fallen.

6. Since we cannot know all that there is to be known about anything, we ought to know a little about everything.

7. People are usually more convinced by reasons they discovered themselves than by those found by others.

8. Happiness is neither without us nor within us. It is in God, both without us and within us.

Israel Is Captive to Its Destructive Process "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As protesters continue to be killed at the Gaza border, Truthdig is reposting a July 14, 2014, column by Chris Hedges on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. A new article by Hedges will appear on Truthdig later this week.

 

Raul Hilberg, in his monumental work The Destruction of the European Jews, chronicled a process of repression that at first was relatively mild but led, step by step, to the Holocaust. It started with legal discrimination and ended with mass murder. The destructive process was a development that was begun with caution and ended without restraint, Hilberg wrote.

The Palestinians over the past few decades have endured a similar destructive process. They have gradually been stripped of basic civil liberties, robbed of assets including much of their land and often their homes, have suffered from mounting restrictions on their physical movements, been blocked from trading and business, especially the selling of produce, and found themselves increasingly impoverished and finally trapped behind walls and security fences erected around Gaza and the West Bank.

The process of destruction [of the European Jews] unfolded in a definite pattern, Hilberg wrote. It did not, however, proceed from a basic plan. No bureaucrat in 1933 could have predicted what kind of measures would be taken in 1938, nor was it possible in 1938 to foretell the configuration of the undertaking in 1942. The destructive process was a step-by-step operation, and the administrator could seldom see more than one step ahead.

There will never be transports or extermination camps for the Palestinians, but amid increasing violence against Palestinians larger and larger numbers of them will die, in airstrikes, targeted assassinations and other armed attacks. Hunger and misery will expand. Israeli demands for transferthe forced expulsion of Palestinians from occupied territory to neighboring countrieswill grow.

The Palestinians in Gaza live in conditions that now replicate those first imposed on Jews by the Nazis in the ghettos set up throughout Eastern Europe. Palestinians cannot enter or leave Gaza. They are chronically short of foodthe World Health Organization estimates that more than 50 percent of children in Gaza and the West Bank under 2 years old have iron deficiency anemia and reports that malnutrition and stunting in children under 5 are not improving and could actually be worsening. Palestinians often lack clean water. They are crammed into unsanitary hovels. They do not have access to basic medical care. They are stateless a...

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


by Noah

Smug and corrupt from head to toe. On the days these sociopathic two parasites die, the world will truly be a better place because they are no longer in it. In the meantime, the damage they cause to every living, breathing thing in America, even their beloved .05%, is nearly incalculable. McConnell and Ryan: Yes, nearly all of Washington is on the take, but there are no better examples of maximum corruption than these two Trump toadies. They mooch and mooch off of us as we pay them with our hard-earned tax dollars. They suck up a lifetime of medical care as if they are lampreys attached to our necks. Even the office staffs and the meals they eat come out of our pockets, not to mention their pensions. They do it all while they moan about others getting "entitlements" handed to them. But, still, what they greedily guzzle at the public trough just isn't enough. They want more, more, more, and one of the places they get it is from Big Pharma and other healthcare related corporations that have an interest in keeping the status quo gravy death train going. Mitch and Paul know all about handouts. Does anyone get more free stuff?

What do we get from top of the list lowlifes like McConnell and Ryan in return? The human misery of health issues we can't afford to treat even though it is our money that goes to treat theirs. McConnell and Ryan hate the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. They hate the idea of Medicare for all. In fact, they hate the idea of Medicare, period. Human Misery, illness, death. They are it's merchants. They are mass murderers on a huge scale, from doing away with regulations that keep chemicals out of our water and the air that we breathe to doing away with our ability to pay for the aforementioned treatments that become needed for our survival; all because of their sadistic money-grubbing, and sociopathic legislating. Imagine if you were one of McConnell or Ryan's kids and you woke up one morning, truly w...

Domesticating tomatoes took millennia we can now redo it in 3 years "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

tomatoes being harvested

The power of CRISPR is been unleashed.  This is really huge and will finally open the door to a flood of successful GMO foods.  What is better, we will want them.  After all, what we do not want is egregious monopoly building at the expense of farmers and consumer health.

This will collapse the cost of new product development.  This puts a flood of product into the market.

Why not make a protein rich corn that is also nitrogen fixing.  Can we do the same for all our grains as well?   That is were the market is.

Then we have the challenge of creating superior vegetarian food options. 

My point though is that time has collapsed and we will have many new crops every year showing up now.

Domesticating tomatoes took millennia we can now redo it in 3 years

 1 October 2018

It took at least 3000 years to domesticate the tomato. Now two separate teams in Brazil and China have done it all over again in less than three years only better in some ways, as the redomesticated tomatoes are more nutritious than the ones we eat now.

This approach, which relies on the revolutionary CRISPR genome editing technique, could not only improve existing crops, it could also be used to turn thousands of wild plants into far more useful and appealing crops. In fact, a third team in the US has already begun to do this with a relative of the tomato called the groundcherry.

This fast-track domestication could help make the worlds food supply healthier and far more resilient to climate change and diseases, such as the rust fungus devastating wheat crops.


This could transform what we eat, says Jorg Kudla at the Un...

Meet the Buddhist Economist "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


 
 
Good start but i go much further with my concept of the natural community tied directly to the land itself and responsible for optimizing that land.  Such a natural community would include around 132 to 156 folk and have a natural governance through the Rule of Twelve meme.  The land base would be at least 100 acres and possibly a lot more if including wild lands needing grooming.  Six such communities could nicely manage a square mile.
 
A cross roads could then establish a larger community totaling perhaps 24 times this number or toward 3,000 population providing ample manpower able to both work the land and to constantly maintain and groom the lands and forests.  
 
This can be a naturally sustainable community that is amply supportive and also demanding as well.

https://nationalinterest.org/feature/trump-should-let-south-and-north-korea-build-peace-32102


Addressing the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville on Monday, September 24, CIA Director Gina Haspel stated something the vast preponderance of Korea analysts in the United States have generally taken as fact. Haspel warned that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un likely wont be giving up his nuclear weapons program anytime soon, if ever. Pyongyang views their nuclear weapons stockpile as essential to their regimes survival , Haspel said, so any American effort to separate Kim from those weapons will have to be incredibly appealing.

Apparently, Haspels boss, President Donald Trump, didnt get the memo. More than seven hundred miles away in New York, Trump spoke about a blanket of optimism and promise that usually dont go hand-in-hand with discussions about North Korea.

Are Black Holes Actually Dark Energy Stars? - Facts So Romantic "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

What does the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way look like? Early next year, we might find out. The Event Horizon Telescopereally a virtual telescope with an effective diameter of the Earthhas been pointing at Sagittarius A* for the last several years. Most researchers in the astrophysics community expect that its images, taken from telescopes all over the Earth, will show the telltale signs of a black hole: a bright swirl of light, produced by a disc of gases trapped in the black holes orbit, surrounding a black shadow at the centerthe event horizon. This encloses the region of space where the black-hole singularitys gravitational pull is too strong for light to escape.

But George Chapline, a physicist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, doesnt expect to see a black hole. He doesnt believe theyre real.

The ceasefire tamped down escalating trans-Atlantic trade tensions that threatened to morph into a tat-for-tat trade fight as witnessed between the US and China.  An unorthodox Trump administration trade strategy with Mexico and Canada led the three sides to reach a new trade deal earlier this month.

A Russian cyber vigilante is patching outdated MikroTik routers exposed online "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A Russian-speaking hacker, who goes by the name of Alexey, claims to have hacked into over 100,000 MikroTik routers with a specific intent, disinfect them.

Earlier August, experts uncovered a massive crypto jacking campaign that was targeting  MikroTik routers to inject a Coinhive cryptocurrency mining script in the web traffic.

The campaign started in Brazil, but it rapidly expanded to other countries targeting MikroTik routers all over the world, over 200,000 devices were compromised.

In September thousands of unpatched MikroTik Routers were involved in new cryptocurrency mining campaigns.

Threat actors also exploited the exploit code for the CVE-2018-14847 vulnerability in MikroTik routers to recruit them in botnets such as Mirai and VPNFilter.

Alexey is a Russian-speaking cyber vigilante that decided to fix the MikroTik routers and he claims to be e system administrator.

Alexey described his activity on a Russian blogging platform, he explained he hacked into the routers to change settings and prevent further compromise.

I added firewall rules that blocked access to the router from outside the local network, Alexey wrote.

In the comments, I wrote information about the vulnerability and left the address of the @router_os Telegram channel, where it was possible for them to ask questions.

Alexey changed settings for over 100,000 users, but only 50 users contacted his via Telegram but of them were angry for the intrusion.

According to the researcher Troy Mursch, currently, there are over 420,000 MikroTik routers exposed only that have been abused in cryptocurrency-mining campaigns.

MikroTik routers continue to be under attack, and the situation is getting worse because of the availability of a new PoC code.

African leaders call for $1billion from donors to protect elephants "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

African leaders have called on international donors to commit $1 billion over the next 12 years to save Africas remaining elephants.

During the Elephant Protection Initiatives Consultative Group at the Illegal Wildlife Trafficking Conference, the group urged donors to put elephants beyond the risk of extinction by helping provide the required investment.

Africas elephant population has been devastated by ivory poachers over the past decade. On average, some 55 elephants are killed per day. If this rate continues, elephants could be wiped out within a generation.

The EPI held crucial meetings on the elephant crisis at the Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference in London.

The EPIs first ever Consultative Group was hosted by the President of Gabon, Ali Bongo Ondimba. Seven African countries Gabon, Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Ethiopia, Angola and Chad presented their elephant conservation plans. These plans would cost some 268 million USD to implement over the next three years.

Their National Elephant Action Plans are fully costed national plans drawn up by African governments to protect their elephant populations.

The EPI champions and advocates for these plans across Africa as a sustainable and effective way to save the continents dwindling elephant population, which continues to come under fierce attack from poaching and illegal trafficking.

The EPIs John Stephenson said Africa has set out an ambitious programme of elephant conservation.

If we invest one billion dollars by 2030,  we can put elephants beyond the risk of extinction, protect habitats, and the communities who live alongside wildlife.

When this money is spread across elephant range states, the amount we spend in each country will be modest, but the returns will be large, said Stephenson.

Britains royal family has been drawn into a political fight in Botswana over elephant poaching ahead of an international wildlife conference in London

Former President Ian Khamas supporters are accusing his successor Mokgweetsi Masisi of presiding over the mass slaughter of elephants by ivory hunters in Botswana. Until now Botswana has had one of the best records on wildlife conservation in the world.

These latest claims could disrupt the Illegal Wildlife Trade conference (IWT), which both Khama and Masisi are due to attend. Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, is expected to address the conference which opens on 11 October. Masisis government is taking soundings on a plan to lift the ban on hunting elephants, a move which divides conservationists.

Princes William and his brother Harry have visited Botswana many times since they were children and have long been involved in wildlife conservation charities. In August 2017, Prince Harry took Meghan Markle to an exclusive safari camp in the countrys Okavango Delta to celebrate her 36th birthday. They also spent part of their honeymoon there this year.

Prince Harry calls Botswana his second home and in January last year he became a patron of Rhino Conservation Botswana alongside Ian Khamas brother Tshekedi, the current Minister of Environment, Natural Resources and Tourism. The engagement ring Harry gave his wife Meghan is set with a Botswana diamond.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats S04 E12 Blood Relations "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Season 3 Episode 5 appears to be missing

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.

Is innovation democracys unique advantage? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I say yes, though I dont think it is easy to prove.  Here is part of the abstract, from Rui Tang and Shiping Tang:

We contend that the channel of libertytoinnovation is the most critical channel in which democracy holds a unique advantage over autocracy in promoting growth, especially during the stage of growth via innovation. Our theory thus predicts that democracy holds a positive but indirect effect upon growth via the channel of libertytoinnovation, conditioned by the level of economic development. We then present quantitative evidence for our theory.

The Story "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I first heard the Frozen Bird story when I was in the Navy, undergoing arduous training. The saga runs like this:

A little bird was flying south for the Winter. It was so cold that the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While he lay there, near death there, a cow came by and dropped a large pile of dung on him, warming him and saving his life.

As life coursed back into his little feathered body, he realized that he was covered by dung, repellant and odorous. He started chirping and complaining.

A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

There are lessons that can be drawn from this:

(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
(3) When you are in deep dung, best to keep your mouth shut.

Toxic effects of Maralinga nuclear bomb testing continue "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Menzies immediately agreed to the proposal, without consulting any of his cabinet colleagues or the Australian parliament. Indeed, until weeks before the first test was carried out, only three government ministers knew about it.

The most devastating effects were suffered by two groups: Australian and British soldiers working on the tests themselves, and the Indigenous populations local to Emu Field and the later testing site of Maralinga.

One prominent member of the testing team, Sir Ernest Titterton, later said that if Indigenous people had a problem with the government, they should vote it out, ignoring that Indigenous Australians did not have full political rights until 1967.

an Australian defense ministry report was leaked to the press, warning that large amounts of plutonium left at Maralinga could potentially be a target of terrorists.

those wrongs have not been fully addressed. Health problems stemming from the tests continue for those still living, and while the veracity of Lester and other victims stories has been acknowledged, what exactly happened to them remains unclear, the details of the nuclear test still kept top secret.
To this day we dont know what Totem I did, those records are still classified by the British,

The EU is Turning Towards Asia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ffr5

The process of reformatting the world order that we can see in progress is a global and comprehensive phenomenon. In particular, it is reflected in the obvious change that is taking place in the relations between the main countries constituting the West. The difficulty of defining the latter with a certain degree of precision has to do with absurd ideologies and mere myths that this very concept has an excess quantity of.

The very usage of the term is currently nothing more than prolonged inertial movement after the Cold War, this global political game that lasted for almost 50 years, ended in 1991.

Apropos, let us note that this term refers to a certain stage in the history of mankind rather than some specific unprecedented event. At various times, in various places, the struggle of that period was carried out by using quite ordinary methods and means that had been employed for millennia: information, diplomacy, military action and the purposes were just as ordinary as well.

The new political game that began after 1991 is different in the leading players, a gradual shift of its geographical focus from Europe and the Atlantic to the Indo-Pacific region, deactivation and unavoidable disintegration (in the long term) of the alliances that had been established during the previous game.

The latter trend is becoming increasingly obvious in the exacerbating issues that can be observed in the relations between the 2 main parts of the West, i.e. the EU and the US.

In this respect, the issues in the trade and economic component of the transatlantic relations that are approaching the conflict stage are merely one of the manifestations of the increasingly evident inefficiency of the whole system of connections between the shores of the Atlantic Ocean that were established during the Cold War. As time goes by, each of the shores will progressively focus on its own geopolitical games.

One cannot help reaching that conclusion (at least, regarding the EU) after familiarizing oneself with the Joint Communication published by the EU headquarters on September 19. This document formulated both the shared vision of Connecting Europe and Asia Building blocks for an EU Strategy by the EU gove...

Im the one that gave Ukraine offensive weapons and tank killers. Obama didnt. You know what he sent? He sent pillows and blankets, Trump said.

Trump received a great deal of criticism for failing to denounce Russias efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election while standing on the same stage as Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki in July.

I think Im very tough with him personally. I had a meeting with him. The two of us. It was a very tough meeting and it was a very good meeting, Trump told 60 Minutes.

Trump said he believes that Russia tried to meddle in the 2016 election, but stopped short of directly answering other questions regarding Putins regime, like alleged contracted hits on Russian dissidents. He did concede, however, that Putin probably is involved in poisonings and assassinations of his political rivals.

Celebrating rural women "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Its the International Day of Rural Women.

This years theme is: Sustainable infrastructure, services and social protection for gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls.

Rural women make up a quarter of the worlds population. They grow much of our food, strengthen economies and build climate resilience.

From championing access to clean water in Kyrgyzstan to boosting sustainable agriculture in Ethiopia, rural women are mobilizing to support one another, and their contributions are vital for both rural communities and urban societies.

Yet, on almost every measure of development, because of gender inequalities and discrimination, they fare worse than rural men or urban women. . .

This year, we are calling for better public services, including health care, education, childcare and shelters, on which millions of rural women depend; and laws, policies and budgets to improve their livelihoods and well-being.

We stand in solidarity with rural women and their organizations everywhere as they seek to influence the decisions that shape their lives. . .

As nuclear power declines worldwide, renewable energy races ahead "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Likening nuclear power to that of a living organism, however, Mycle Schneider, the lead author of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report, told World Finance the industry was like a dying species due to the obvious reduction in new nuclear project launches in recent years.

This is seen clearly in the International Energy Agencys (IEA) annual World Energy Investment report, updated in July, which found that nuclear investment is falling fast.

Nuclear power continues its decline as renewable alternatives steam ahead, World Finance,  Author: Courtney Goldsmith, October 15, 2018

Once thought of as the primary answer to the globes renewable energy requirements, nuclear energy is now viewed unfavourably in comparison to solar and wind alternatives.

Last year, the largest nuclear power builder in history went bankrupt. Japanese conglomerate Toshibas prolific subsidiary Westinghouse filed for bankruptcy after revealing billions of dollars of cost overruns on its US construction projects. At the start of 2018, Toshiba agreed to sell the business for $4.6bn

The high-profile sale followed the French Governments 5.3bn ($6.2bn) bailout of state-owned nuclear company Areva, which went technically bankrupt after a cumulative six-year
loss of $12.3bn.

Trump Says Climate Change Not a Hoax, Could Be Temporary "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump is backing off his claim that climate change is a hoax but says he doesnt know if its manmade and suggests that the climate will change back again.

In an interview with CBS 60 Minutes that aired Sunday night, Trump said he doesnt want to put the U.S. at a disadvantage in responding to climate change.

I think somethings happening. Somethings changing and itll change back again, he said. I dont think its a hoax. I think theres probably a difference. But I dont know that its manmade. I will say this: I dont want to give trillions and trillions of dollars. I dont want to lose millions and millions of jobs.

Trump called climate change a hoax in November 2012 when he sent a tweet stating, The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. He later said he was joking about the Chinese connection, but in years since has continued to call global warming a hoax.

Im not denying climate change, he said in the interview. But it could very well go back. You know, were talking about over a millions of years.

As far as the climate changing back, temperature records kept by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that the world hasnt had a cooler-than-average year since 1976 or a cooler-than-normal month since the end of 1985.

Trump, who is scheduled on Monday to visit areas of Georgia and Florida damaged by Hurricane Michael, also expressed doubt over scientists findings linking the changing climate to more powerful hurricanes.

They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than what we just had with Michael, said Trump, who identified they as people after being pressed by 60 Minutes correspondent Leslie Stahl. She asked, What about the scientists who say its worse than ever? the president replied, Youd have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda.

Trumps comments came just days after a Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a warning that global warming would increase climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security and economic growth. The report detailed how Earths weather, health and ecosystems would be in better shape if the worlds leaders could somehow limit future human-caused warming.

Classic Comedy: Open All Hours Ronnie Barker and David Jason S04 E04 The Errand Boy Executive "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From Wikipedia

Open All Hours is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke for the BBC. It ran for 26 episodes in four series, which premiered in 1976, 1981, 1982 and 1985. The programme developed from a television pilot broadcast in Ronnie Barkers comedy anthology series, Seven of One (1973). Open All Hours ranked eighth in the 2004 Britains Best Sitcom poll

The setting is a small grocers shop in Balby, a suburb of Doncaster in South Yorkshire. The owner, Arkwright (Ronnie Barker), is a middle-aged miser with a stammer and a knack for selling. His nephew Granville (David Jason) is his put-upon errand boy, who blames his work schedule for his lacklustre social life.

Across the road lives Nurse Gladys Emmanuel (Lynda Baron), occupied by her professional rounds, and her elderly mother. Arkwright longs to marry her, but she resists his persistent pressures. In later episodes, it is explained that the two have actually been engaged for many years but have been unable to go through with a wedding due to the advanced age of Nurse Gladyss mother, for whom she cares at home. Though short-tempered with Arkwright, she is concerned for his and Granvilles welfare.

Busting Barry Brooks uninformed propaganda about Fukushima nuclear disaster "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Prof. Brook is probably, in my opinion, clearly very inadequate when he researches things such as nuclear industry. He claims academic privilege when he communicates his mere opinions related to a field he possesses no training or little training or qualifications in. He cant have it both ways. The privilege which springs from his actual qualifications may give him status in other things on campus. Away from the lecture theatre though, his opinions of the nature of nuclear industry have zero academic weight.Im an academic and therefore I am right does not wash with me

2003 saw Prof. Shimazaki speak at the first meeting of the governments Disaster Management Council. This council formed government disaster policy. He urged the council to study the Jogan earthquake of 869 and warned the Japanese Trench could generate earthquakes anywhere along Japans Pacific coast.

Global Markets Continue To Fall As Bloomberg Warns The Next Financial Crisis Is Staring Us In The Face "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It looks like it could be another tough week for global financial markets.  As the week began, markets were down all over the world, and relations between the United States and Saudi Arabia have taken a sudden turn for the worse.  That could potentially mean much, much higher oil prices, and needless to say that would be a very bad thing for the U.S. economy.  It has really surprised many of us how dramatically events have begun to accelerate here in the month of October, and the mood on Wall Street has taken a decidedly negative turn.  Yes, U.S. stocks did bounce back a bit on Friday (as I correctly anticipated), but it was much less of a bounce than many investors were hoping for.  And this week got off to a rough start with all of the major markets in Asia down significantly

In the Greater China region, the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong fell by around 0.9 percent in early trade. The Shanghai composite also slipped by 0.33 percent while the Shenzhen composite bucked the overall trend to edge up by 0.4 percent.

In Japan, the Nikkei 225 fell by 1.48 percent in morning trade, while the Topix index slipped by 1.17 percent, with most sectors trending lower.

Universal Basic Income Is Silicon Valleys Latest Scam "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Think of it: The government prints more money or perhapsgod forbidit taxes some corporate profits, then it showers the cash down on the people so they can continue to spend. As a result, more and more capital accumulates at the top. And with that capital comes more power to dictate the terms governing human existence.

UBI really just turns us from stakeholders or even citizens to mere consumers.

Meanwhile, UBI also obviates the need for people to consider true alternatives to living lives as passive consumers. Solutions like platform cooperatives, alternative currencies, favor banks, or employee-owned businesses, which actually threaten the status quo under which extractive monopolies have thrived, will seem unnecessary. Why bother signing up for the revolution if our bellies are full? Or just full enough?

Under the guise of compassion, UBI really just turns us from stakeholders or even citizens to mere consumers. Once the ability to create or exchange value is stripped from us, all we can do with every consumptive act is deliver more power to people who can finally, without any exaggeration, be called our corporate overlords.

No, income is nothing but a booby prize. If we're going to get a handout, we should demand not an allowance but assets. That's right: an ownership stake.

RNZ Jesse Mulligan: An initial report on the Bridges Ross mess "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This is not what National needed.

The website link has links to some useful information.

National Party leader Simon Bridges says the inquiry into who leaked his expenses points to National MP Jami-Lee Ross. Joining us is political editor Jane Patterson who has been listening to the press conference. More at the link

Here is the PWC Report.

Furthermore there may be a positive, Bridges had the courage to:

  • press ahead with an enquiry when Mallard cancelled his, bit didnt as he secretly went ahead
  • publish the results, unlike Labour who have been very secretive over the youth camp report
  • publish the results, unlike Labour who were very secretive over the Meka Whaitiri issue
  • fronted up as soon as he got the report with a media conference

The problem for Bridges is that the media are determined to get rid of him. Perhaps that says more about them, than Bridges.

Nashville notes "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Grand Ole Opry is a well-oiled machine, but it makes country music feel old and bankrupt.  The famous strip on Broadway, with the noisy bars, music shows, and restaurants, might as well be hell, but it offers the great joy of being able to leave it.  The Gulch part of town is presented as cool, but its really just a few boring shops in a homogenized setting.

Nonetheless I now think of Nashville as one of the most successful cities in the South remarkably few neighborhoods are run down and dumpy, and the residents seem happy.  There is new construction all over, plenty of health care facilities, and Vanderbilt is a quality university.

What might be the most successful southern cities, circa 2018?

Atlanta

Richmond

Nashville

Bentonville

the NC Research Triangle deserves mention, even though neither Durham nor Chapel Hill is well-developed enough to make this list (why is that?).

Maybe the boring Charlotte?

p.s. Miami is not the south.

What do the success stories have in common?  Other than not being Memphis?

Why Trump Cant Get Enough Of Element 23 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This report is an ADVERTISEMENT from Oilprice.com

Its the most critical economic resource youve never heard of.

Element V.

Without this unknown commodity, you cant build as strong a bridge, factory or skyscraper. Its used extensively in planes, trains and supertankers.

It could soon form the backbone of Americas $386 billion electrical grid.

Forget oil or gold. Wars could even be fought over this unusual metal.

The scary part? None of it is produced in the United States. China, Russia and South Africa control almost all of the global production, and were locked in the middle of a trade war.

Now United Battery Metals Corp (CSE:UBM, OTC:UBMCF) is  one of the few companies providing some hope.

As we speak, this tiny Colorado mineral explorer is sitting on an estimated resource of 2.7 million pounds of proven Element V reserves estimated in an independent geologists 43-101 technical report. And, thats not all.

The company has nearly 800 acres of property consisting of 39 claims, and one of the top exploration geologists in the western United States is on board.

Here are five reasons to follow United Battery Metals today:

DIY Wire Bender Gets Wires All Bent Into Shape "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Its been a while since weve shown a DIY wire bending machine, and [How To Mechatronics] has come up with an elegant design with easy construction through the use of 3D-printed parts which handle most of the inherent complexity. This one also has a Z-axis so that you can produce 3D wire shapes. And as with all wire bending machines, its fun to watch it in action, which you can do in the video below along with seeing the step-by-step construction.

One nice feature is that hes included a limit switch for automatically positioning the Z-axis when you first turn it on. It also uses a single 12 volt supply for all the motors, and the Arduino that acts as the brains. The 5 volts for the one servo motor is converted from 12 using an LM7805 voltage regulator. Hes also done a nice job packaging the Arduino, stepper motor driver boards, and the discrete components all onto a single custom surface mount PCB.

And given the option to send a message to Westminster or, as Russell Brand would have it, to press a bright red button that said F off establishment its not surprising that so many people took it.

Too many people spend too many hours working in insecure jobs to pay rocketing rents. The cost of living continues to rise, while average earnings remain almost 800 a year lower than they were ten years ago. As a nation, we are 19 billion in debt on our everyday bills.

For Khashoggi, a Tangled Mix of Royal Service and Islamist Sympathies "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Jamal Khashoggi landed in Washington last fall, leaving behind a long list of bad news back home.

After a successful career as an adviser to and unofficial spokesman for the royal family of Saudi Arabia, he had been barred from writing in the kingdom, even on Twitter, by the new crown prince. His column in a Saudi-owned Arab newspaper was canceled. His marriage was collapsing. His relatives had been forbidden to travel to pressure him to stop criticizing the kingdoms rulers.

Image result for Jamal Khashoggi, photos

Then, after he arrived in the United States, a wave of arrests put a number of his Saudi friends behind bars, and he made his difficult decision: It was too dangerous to return home anytime soon and maybe forever.

So in the United States, he reinvented himself as a critic, contributing columns to The Washington Post and believing he had found safety in the West.

The SWP under threat: 15 October update "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The PMs intervention: the unemployed and backpackers 15 October

Some major developments in the ag visa debate over the weekend, covered here at the start of our rolling summary, which weve been updating now for the last couple of weeks.

Just when everyone was thinking there wouldnt be a solution till the end of the year, the PM got involved and put forward his solution, which you can find on Twitter here (posted 12 October). As he says its a pretty clear plan. One, register your need. Two, we will assess that need and get Australians into that job whenever and wherever we can. And three, where theres a shortage, we will ensure that the Pacific Labour Scheme and the Working Holiday Maker Scheme will be able to make up the gap.

Parts one and two, which are about getting more Australians to work on farms, got all the media attention. There is already a pilot to do just this (under which if you work on a farm, you wont lose unemployment benefits). It hasnt worked: it was introduced in July 2017, but by October only 14 people had signed up. The new element now is that if you refuse to work on a farm you will lose those benefits. It is unclear how much of an incentive that will provide.

Industry was not keen on the proposal, with National Farmers Federation president Fiona Simson reported to have slammed the idea as a shallow policy to tackle a serious shortage of workers on farms, calling instead for a new agricultural visa to allow workers from overseas. Read this article for more criticisms from farm organisations, and from Labor, and the Nationals dont like it either (The Australian, 14 October). The plan is seen as too bureaucratic, and unlikely to yield much quality labour for farmers.

Interestingly, New Zealand has a similar scheme to get Kiwis onto farms called (confusingly) the NZ Seasonal Worker Scheme (not to be confused with their Pacific SWP, the RSE), introd...

To believe or not to believe "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Gretchen Fullidos sexual assault claims are not quite the #MeToo revolution Filipino women could have hoped for. Of course theres no such thing as a good sexual harassment claim by a woman. Maybe its filed too late, like Christine Blasey Fords accusations about US Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh, which were filed decades after the fact. When a case is filed early, like the one against former Stanford student Brock Turner who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman, theres still a disquieting amount of sympathy for the perpetrator, who is branded a sex offender forever.

The claims are so very often undermined: maybe its not true; maybe she misinterpreted things; maybe she wants money; maybe she didnt say no loudly enough; maybe she was wearing the wrong outfit; maybe she had too much to drink; why didnt she speak up sooner. The victims character is scrutinized, even slandered. During testimonies, if a woman shows too much emotion, shes branded as hysterical, unreliable; if she shows too little, she isnt visibly affected, and is possibly lying, calculating.

 / 05:04 AM October 15, 2018
Opinion
Image result for #MeToo, photos

All this builds up into a climate of secondary victimization of sexual assault victims thats more than enough to make a victim think twice about speaking up, and they often dont: local data on underreporting of rape is limited, but the US Bureau of Justice estimates that only 35 percent of assault victims come forward.

Still, even with this antiquated reasoning and the reprehensible way we treat sexual assault victims, it must be said that weve seen the start of a shift in thinking differently about harassment. Victim-blaming and slut-shaming have found their way into common parlance. For every ignorant bro who jokes about being afraid to ask women out these days, theres a thinking individual whos learning more about consent and systemic rape culture. Its hoped that this gradually changing atmosphere encourages more victims to come forward, and that the final outcome is a deterrent against sexist and malicious behavior. S...

SITKA, Alaska Mary Ferguson, 32, an Alaska Native police officer has filed a lawsuit against her employer, the Sitka Police Department, where she is the only female sworn officer on the police force. The lawsuit filed on Friday, October 12, 2018 alleges she was treated differently because of her gender and punished for complaining about problems within the department, including sexual harrassment.

Mary Ferguson Class of 2005

The 18-page lawsuit alleges the Sitka Police Department (SPD) is run like an old boys club and is managed and supervised by a group of older, white men who share outdated and sexist attitudes. When these SPD managers are not working together at the SPD, they enjoy drinking beers together and socializing togethermeaning there is little or no accountability or actual management in this old boys club.'

Im sad and appalled that it has come to this (lawsuit). My family has been here for generations and it shouldnt be this difficult to serve your own community.

Order and Progress was Never a Civilian Slogan "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The apparent victory of Jair Bolsonaro in the 2018 Brazilian presidential elections has been analysed as the return of some kind of fascism to Brazil: electing dictators where they previously had to enter office in tanks. However, Brazilians, unlike Portuguese, did not remove their dictators from power. The Brazilian military gave way to its civilian counterparts. A governing structure was created in 1986, which permitted the discrete withdrawal of uniformed personnel from public offices and public liability for the consequences of their acts. However, it did not end the role of the military in ruling Brazil. For both historical and ideological reasons this was not necessary.

The military-technocratic tradition in Brazil is as old as the founding of the republic.1 That was one reason why the Brazilian military so readily accepted the same national security ideology that the US propagated in its cadre institutions like the National Defence College/University, the curriculum of which was largely imitated by the Superior War College in Brazil. The military in Brazil is best understood as the elite managers of the republics military industrial technological complex, one of the products to survive the dictatorship.

Although certainly not an accident, the anointment of Bolsonaro as a saviour in Brazils time of troubles, is incidental. His appearance and election (unless something utterly unexpected happens on 28 October) should be understood within Brazils ancient domestic political culture and the subordination of the Brazilian military in the widest sense of the term to the hemispheric national security ideology that has prevailed since its formulation in the late 1940s.

Comparisons with Trump are distractions, like the attacks on Trump. They draw attention away from the actual power issues involved and who actually wields power.

Bolsonaros election cannot be fully understood without an international perspective. Brazi...

The Occult Secrets Of Language As A Method Of Mind Control "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The spell in spelling was meant to create a magical trance over you to obstruct the true meaning of the essence of the Creator. Many occult (33-degree freemasons, illuminati, cabal, etc.) secrets are hidden within spelling and grammar, but it doesnt take much digging to reveal them.

For instance, as per Thoth, the Egyptian God of learning, wisdom and magic, (also depicted in ancient hieroglyphs as a man-bird) the purpose of spelling is to cast magic energy with a definite purpose. Myths surrounding Thoth even say he created himself through language but this is eerily egoistic, and suggests deep occult powers beyond just being able to win a spelling bee.

There is an interesting parallel in the Christian bible, in the Gospel of St. John as well:

In the beginning was the word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

If the occultists want to control a population they simply delete, distort, and generalize the truth. This is the Meta Model used behind most of MK Ultra and other mind control techniques utilized by the Deep State. Language and grammar are one of the primary means to distort truth.

Rage when you disagree: How safe spaces led to todays political mobs "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Whats behind the recent spread of outraged mobs on US streets, wild-eyed and throwing violent fits because their favored political outcome didnt happen? How did so many Americans give up on resolving disagreements through discussion and turn the fact that a disagreement exists into an excuse for a tantrum?

Campuses started setting up safe spaces well before 2015, when the news hit our media in earnest: College students were literally taking shelter from the possibility of hearing opinions they might disagree with.

By Karol Markowicz
Opinion
New York Post

For all the mockery the idea received, were seeing that principle extended to the real world. The recent outbursts on our streets have their root in the idea that only one opinion is the correct one and all others must be shut down.

And politicians are encouraging the idea that disagreement is a personal attack: You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about, Hillary Clinton said last week.

If you dont agree, unfriend me is a common enough post on Facebook and thats directed toward people who are supposed to be your friends.

Its not a big leap from there to: If you dont agree, you cant have dinner, as Ted Cruz found out recently when he was chased from a restaurant. Or to
