Farmers Market Wayville "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

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).

Wenn ich mich mit Bloglesern unterhalte, kommt es hufig ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Wenn ich mich mit Bloglesern unterhalte, kommt es hufig zu so uerungen wie "wie hlst du das nur alles aus" und "was kann man denn berhaupt machen". Ich finde es gefhrlich, wenn man alle Dinge fr unwirksam hlt, die nicht gleich Auswirkungen auf globaler Ebene haben. Man muss eben tun, was man innerhalb seinem Aktionsradius machen kann.

Aber manchmal gibt es Ausnahmen. Da geht jemand los und tut etwas, das auch auerhalb des normalen Aktionsradius von einer Person Auswirkungen haben kann. Wir hatten auf dem 33c3 eine Filmvorfhrung von "National Bird", das war sowas. Eine vergleichsweise zierliche Journalistin, die vorher als Korrespondentin fr NDR und CNN gearbeitet hat, hat sich eines Tages entschieden, dass sie die Drohnenmorde nicht mehr hinnehmen will. Sie hat sich eine US-Soldatin genommen, und ist mit der einfach so in die Drohnenmordgebiete in Afghanistan gegangen. Mehrere Whistleblower kommen zu Wort, und nach allen Kommentaren zu dem Film zu urteilen ist das ein zeitgenssisches Meisterwerk, eine Sache, bei der jeder von uns als erstes denkt: Whoa, die hat mal was gemacht! Geil!

Und der Film gammelt da jetzt in der Obskuritt herum, lief auf ein paar Filmfestivals. Das mindeste, was wir jetzt alle machen knnen, ist dafr sorgen, dass sie dieses krasse Risiko nicht umsonst eingegangen ist. Sie und die Whistleblower natrlich. Ich will jetzt nicht ausfhren, was ich gehrt habe, was die fr Drohungen ausgesetzt sind, das knnt ihr euch ja selber denken.

Jedenfalls, wer den Film sehen mchte, und dazu mchte ich alle Leser ausdrcklich aufrufen, der kann das in einigen Kinos im Lande tun. Viel weniger als ich gehofft htte, aber hey, immerhin. Man kann, wenn man will. Ihr solltet die Chance nutzen.

New French President Is About To Deliver A Huge Victory For Women True Activist

Credit: Benoit Tessier

The newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron won on May 7 with a decisive victory against his far right opponent and he is already well on his way to delivering promises he made during his campaign. Macrons platform focused on overhauling labor laws and the government, as well as gender parity within the country and in parliament.

Macron delivered a campaign speech in January of this year and addressed the topic of gender inequality within the government and the imbalance between the amount of women in the general population of France and in parliament.

Women currently represent 53 percent of the electoral body, so its unacceptable that they make up less than 30 percent of those elected to the National Assembly, said Macron. Unlike other political parties, we plan to respect gender parity.

Macron founded the party En Marche! just over one year ago and has since renamed it La Rpublique en Marche, which is a social-liberal party that intends to be transpartisan in order to unite the parties and ideologies. Its described as center-left and Macron has called it progressive in that it doesnt split the parties, which is evident in his cabinet picks and parliamentary nominees.

The new president has already announced more than 400 of the parliamentary candidates he is going to nominate of the 577 he will eventually select. The candidates were split right down the middle, 214 men and 214 women to coincide with Macrons promise to fill parliament with women to better represent the electoral body. He also announced his cabinet picks earlier this week, which is comprised of 11 women and 11 men from both the right and left, all of which have already been vetted.

Though Macron touts his strong stance on gender inequality, and his commitment to reducing the gender gap in parliament is surely evidence of this, the president has run into some problems with both defending his feminist ideals and pushing back against misogyny. On a personal level, he called critics of his marriage, which is to a woman that is 20 years...

Leo DiCaprio Is Determined To Save The Last Few Dozen Of These Adorable Animals True Activist

Credit: Daily Express

Self-described actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio took to Twitter last week to call on his followers and animal rights advocates to sign a petition by the World Wildlife Fund that urges the president of Mexico to take immediate action to save the vaquita porpoise. He provided a link to the petition and let his followers know in a longer post on Instagram that the near-extinction of the Mexican vaquita porpoise has been solely caused by human activity and that Mexican officials are largely responsible for stopping this.

The vaquita porpoise is found only in Mexicos Gulf of California and is the most endangered marine mammal on the entire planet. With just 30, or maybe even less, left in the world, this porpoise stands no chance of survival if humans continue to participate in the very activities that are leading to their extinction.

Unsustainable and illegal fishing practices have caused a dramatic decline in the vaquitas population, explained DiCaprio on Instagram.

These porpoises are not in danger because they are targeted by fishermen, but they are the collateral damage of the illegal fishing of Totoaba macdonaldi fish, which are also endangered, and shrimp because of the gillnets used to sweep them up. Gillnets trap the targeted fish and shrimp, but the tiny porpoises also become entangled in the nets and drown as a result. Their population has been rapidly decreasing ever since they were first discovered a mere 50 years ago, and in 2016 alone approximately 30 died as a result of the fishing practices.

In response, the Mexican government established a two-year ban on using gillnets and also on shrimp and scale fishery in the area. Due to pressure from animal rights and environmental groups, President Enrique Pea Nieto made the ban permanent in order to show his commitment to make sure the porpoises dont go extinct. The president also personally (and publicly) responded to Leos plea for help with in saving the vaquita porpoises on Twitter by pointing to the policies already in place to save the animals and reaffirming Mexicos commitment to the creatures.

Could This Popular Club Drug Be Used As A Vaccine For Depression? True Activist

Credit: BBC

After the Columbine shooting in 1999, high schools across America were reeling from the possibility of such a tragedy happening on their grounds after Columbine failed to recognize that the two students responsible for the shooting as dangers to others. One such high school in New Jersey, where Rebecca Brachman attended, asked students to write ways that they thought this occurrence could be prevented and most students pointed to gun control. Brachman, despite how stigmatized the subject was at the time, went much deeper and identified something more complex: mental illness.

Fast forward to today and it makes sense that Brachman is now a neuroscientist and her latest studies have revolved around how existing drugs can be used to treat mental illness, leading to a huge discovery that could change everything we know about treatment.

In a recent TED Talk last year, Brachman spoke to an audience about the studies that her and a team at Columbia University as well as people around the globe have been working on. She and many other researchers understand that drugs that are produced to treat other illnesses actually have the ability to work on other illnesses but that the scientists who created it are often so focused on its one purpose that they dont see the whole picture. Repurposing of drugs is actually how the first two antidepressant drugs were produced, which were originally meant to treat tuberculosis and allergies.

We are in the middle of an epidemic of mood disorders like depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Depression has actually now surpassed HIV/AIDS, malaria, diabetes and war for the leading cause of disability worldwide. And also, like tuberculosis in the 1950s, we dont know what causes it. Once its developed, its chronic, lasts a lifetime, and there are no known cures, said Brachman in her talk.

Credit: TED Talk

Though anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications are advertised and prescribed frequently, they are nowhere near guaranteed to work and can actually worsen symptoms for many patients. Even if they do work, they simply suppress symptoms by inhibiting or boosting production of certain hormones, but Brachman and many others wondered if there was a better solution.

In a series of trials on mice over the last few years, Brachman and a colleague conducted stress tests on mice with results that at first did not seem to make sense. Despite the mice having just been put through a purposefully stressful situation, they acted as though they were at ease and not at a...

Australia's Constitutional Crisis by Rodney Culleton "IndyWatch Feed National"

The corruption of the people in 'government' and in the Australian courts is astounding with reference to Australia's "Constitutional Crisis".

Even though this has been a topic of great discussion and "noise" by researchers, the corporate media has managed to keep a lid on it for quite some time.

The horse has bolted once Rodney Culleton's exposing documents have hit the parliament floor, where a 'natural' reaction of the "faceless people", is an action of hostile retaliation, which no doubt Rodney Culleton has seen.

Chief Justice Sir Harry Gibbs has commented on this where this was documented in the blog post: http://corpau.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/sir-harry-gibbs-chief-justice-of-high.html

Sweden Drops Assange Rape Charges, 1637 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Life Change Tea: Rid Your Body From Toxins! https://www.getthetea.com Good evening, Im still reporting on Sweden Drops Assange Rape Charges, 1637 Synopsis: According to a tweet this morning from WikiLeaks: BREAKING: Sweden has dropped its case against Julian Assange and will revoke its arrest warrant. After hunkering down inside the safety of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Julian Assange may soon be a free man again after Swedish prosecutors said they have dropped their long-running quest to arrest him on allegations of rape of a minor, something Assange denies and has never been charged for. According to the office of the Chief Prosecutor in Sweden: Chief Prosecutor Marianne Ny has today decided to discontinue the preliminary investigation regarding suspected rape concerning Julian Assange.  Given that all options for moving the investigation forward are now exhausted, it appears that in light of the views expressed by the supreme court on the proportionality of arresting someone in absentia it is no longer proportional to maintain the decision to remand Julian Assange in his absence.  There are still remaining problems for Assange. Britain has sought his arrest for unspecified, but less important infractions, however, Londons Metropolitian Police have signaled that they may look the other way if Assange chooses to leave the embassy. US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said last month that arresting Assange was a priority and a secret extradition agreement from months ago may be the infraction the Met is concerned about. I have no inside information on this, however, my reporters nose tells me that this radical change in Assanges status could not have happened without the tacit or otherwise approval of President Trump.

Reflections on the counter-revolution in France "IndyWatch Feed War"

by Frank, with apologies to Edmund Burke for the paraphrase One of the more significant features of the recent French Presidential election was the widespread predictability of the outcome. It was taken for granted that the establishment, cardboard cut-out, hologram candidate Macron representing the alt-centre, would win the final electoral contest against Madame Le Pen by a comfortable margin; and so it turned out, Macron winning by 66% to Le Pens 34% of votes cast. Okay, there was a widespread abstention amounting to 25% of the registered electorate, a 10% spoliation of ballot papers, and, in addition, tactical voting against Le Pen in the second-round run-off. This left about 25% of the French electorate, those overwhelmingly petit-bourgeois and miscellaneous air-heads, who voted for Marcon rather than against Le Pen, but who had scant ideas of what Macrons programme for France would entail. This wasnt surprising, however, since he was simply a continuity candidate who offered nothing remotely significant in policy terms other than more of the same. So, a candidate who has not

Like a boss, Trump stood his ground firmly in the broiling 100-degree heat while meeting with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud face-to-face on a desert tarmac during the Presidents scheduled visit Saturday. During the exchange, which was captured on video, King Salman bowed slightly to an ever-firm Trump, who authored the best-selling book: The Art of the Deal.

During the exchange, which was captured on video, King Salman bowed slightly to an ever-firm Trump, who, of course, authored the best-selling book: The Art of the Deal.

The Presidents stern actions show a distinct contrast between Obama era policies and Trump era policies and offer some insight into where the country as a whole is headed in general.

LOOK CAREFULLY at these two photos, musician Vinnie James tweeted. The one on the RIGHT is a lesson in American exceptionalism: @FLOTUS no hijab, @POTUS no kowtow.

President Trump told the Saudi King that meeting him was a great honor as the two shook hands in a friendly manner.

Later in the day, both parties appeared to be in good spirits and could be seen smiling while talking to one another.

Less-than-even-handed satire from the BBC (as ever) "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Fans of Eddie Mair's PM will know that the programme has invited the (Daily Mail) Guardian writer John Crace to give his 'digested' takes on each of the parties' election manifestos.

There's still the SNP and the UKIP ones to come but, so far, we've had his take on the manifestos of Labour, the Lib Dems and the Tories. 

The three transcripts from this week's editins could form the basis of a GCSE English comprehension exam question (if they still do such things):

Please read the following satirical takes on the party manifestos. Which party (giving reasons) do you think the author is most sympathetic too? (2 marks). And which party is the author least sympathetic to? (2 marks). Do you think he supports or opposes Brexit? (2 marks). And what, if anything does, the bias displayed say about the broadcaster which commissioned them? (3 marks) 
The Labour Party manifesto: This is a manifesto for the many, not the few; for the many commitments, not the few. At 123 pages it's longer than some books, but when you're as far behind in the polls as we are what's there to lose? Better to promise the Earth than die wondering. The first thing you should know is that nothing in our manifesto will cost you a penny. We know that many of you think you might one day be earning 80,000 per year and could be a bit put off the thought of paying a higher rate of income tax. But get real. That's just isn't going to happen, is it? Even if we raise the national living wage to 10 per hour by 2020 most people are still going to be fairly broke. Under Labour what we can guarantee is that you will be marginally less broke than under the Tories. As a Labour government we promise to raise an extra 48.6 billion a year by asking the wealthiest individuals and businesses to pay a little bit more. Come to think of it that's quite a bit more. But never mind. They can afford it -  especially that Philip Green. It's all going to a good cause as we're going to spend the money on schools, hospitals and Crossrail too. You wouldn't...

Jihad Critic Poisoned in Iceland, 1634 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Jeevy Computers: Move up to business-level protection. https://www.jeevycomputers.com Good evening, Im still reporting on Jihad Critic Poisoned in Iceland, 1634 Synopsis: One of the leading critics of the worldwide jihad, Robert Spencer, was poisoned on a recent speaking trip to Iceland last week. Spencer, aged 55, founded the blog Jihad Watch and appears frequently on Fox News. Spencer has also authored two New York Times bestsellers on the topic. According to an email to Breitbart from Grmur Grmsson, the detective chief superintendent who is working the Robert Spencer poison case: Reykjavk Metropolitan police are investigating a case where [Spencer] . was poisoned. Grmsson said that poison attacks are rare in Iceland, whose economy benefits substantially from tourism from the U.S. A doctors report on May 12 showed that Spencer was poisoned with a combination of amphetamines and the drug MDMA. Spencer keeps his home address secret because of death threats by Islamic groups, angered by his best-selling books which describe the Koran as violent and intolerant. Spencer correctly predicted that a 2015 exhibition of anti-Islam cartoons would be attacked because orthodox Islam believes that critics of Islam should be killed. Fortunately, security guards were hired for the Garland, Texas event organized by Pamela Geller, and when two armed jihadis attacked the event, they were quickly dealt with. Spencer lamented his treatment by the Islandic press. His lecture on May 11 was attended by 500 Icelanders a very large crowd for Iceland here I have spoken on the topic of monetary reform many times. The Icelandic press only quoted the 50 protesters outside the lecture hall. They never bothered to provide a single quote from Spencers talk. Later, at a post-event celebration, Spencer says that his drink was spiked by leftist activists who had recognized him. He quickly left the event for his hotel. About fifteen minutes later, when I got back in my hotel room, I began to feel numbness in my face, hands, and feet. I began trembling and vomiting. My heart was racing dangerously.

Leaked Draft Shows U.S. Weakened Climate Change Wording In Arctic Declaration "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Sabrina Shankman for Inside Climate News - The day before the Arctic Council met for its biannual ministerial last week, the United States requested six changes to the intergovernmental declaration that was to be issuedeach of which weakened the language on climate change. The Arctic Council, an intergovernmental body representing all eight Arctic states, does not make policy, but the diplomatic work accomplished there is intended to trickle back to the countries and result in changes. An important part of that is the declaration issued at the end of each two-year chairmanship, which is signed by top officials from each country, to acknowledge the scientific and diplomatic work that was accomplished and to state the council's goals going forward. The last-minute move by the United States to weaken the document can be seen as a test case for what we can expect at larger, more consequential meetings of international organizations dealing with global warming issues and policy as President Donald Trump rolls back U.S. climate policies and backslides on international commitments.

Is John Podesta Behind the Many Lies Strategically Leaked to Cover Up Democrat Crimes? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Hillary Clintons Creepy Campaign Manager John Podesta has a history of seedy and illegal activity.  The late Andrew Breitbart, entrepreneur and creator of Breitbart.com knew this back in 2012 (warning on language):

Breitbart was ahead of his time.  During the recent 2016 Presidential election John Podestas emails were obtained and released by WikiLeaks late into the campaign.  Although the mainstream media would not report what was in these emails, the GWP and other conservative websites did report the insidious, corrupt and elitist activities and scheming included in the emails.

The WikiLeaks emails showed that the Clinton campaign was in cahoots with the MSM.  At least 65 MSM reporters were meeting with and/or coordinating offline with top Hillary advisors.  The emails also showed that as early as December 2015 Podesta discussed Trumps bromance with Putin and the potential for using it as a means to slander Trump.

With North Korea speeding up its nuclear programme development and with less leverage with key countries in the Six-Party Talks, China is in a peculiar predicament, argues Bo Zhiyue.

BEIJING: A ruthless yet calculating dictator armed with a limited nuclear arsenal, Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers Party of Korea and supreme leader of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (i.e., North Korea), is playing a dangerous war game.

The only ally of the hermit country, China finds itself in a peculiar predicament in a possible military conflict between North Korea and the US, with significantly less leverage under President Xi Jinping.

Google Partnering With HTC and Lenovo for Standalone VR Headsets "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Google is partnering with HTC and Lenovo to produce standalone (no smartphone or tether) virtual reality headsets. The headsets could cost around $500-$700, comparable to the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. As they will have less computational/graphics power than flagship smartphones or desktops, Google has developed a rendering system that they claim can compensate by decreasing the amount of polygons needed to render a scene (related video):

Meanwhile, a rendering system called Seurat named after the pointillist painter Georges Seurat is supposed to offer image quality that rivals what you'd get on a high-end PC. Andrey Doronichev, Google's director of product management, describes Seurat as "computational magic." It takes a rendered three-dimensional scene and samples shots of it from many different angles. As seen [here], Seurat uses these images to assemble a facade that drastically reduces the number of polygons the headset needs to render, without a visible loss of quality.

Google can also use the same Daydream user interface it's been fine-tuning for the past year on phones. A software update codenamed Euphrates will add the features you need for devices that users can't just pop apart and use as a phone, like a full-featured web browser and a dashboard for accessing settings and other non-VR parts of Android.

Google envisions VR and AR converging into mixed reality headsets, building on the augmented reality technologies developed under Project Tango as well as Daydream VR:

To make VR more transporting, and AR more convincing and useful, everything behind these experiences must improve: displays, optics, tracking, input, GPUs, sensors, and more. As one benchmark, to achieve "retina" resolution in VRthat is, to give a person 20/20 vision across their full field of viewwe'll need roughly 30 times more pixels than we have in today's displays. To make more refined forms of AR possible, smartphones will need more advanced sensing capabilities. Our devices will need to understand motion, space, and very precise location.

If NATO Wants Peace and Stability it Should Stay Home "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

May 20, 2017 (Ulson Gunnar - NEO) - A curious op-ed appeared in The National Interest, penned by Hans Binnendijk and David Gompert, adjunct senior fellows at the RAND Corporation. Titled, "NATOs Role in post-Caliphate Stability Operations," it attempts to make a case for NATO involvement everywhere from Libya to Syria and Iraq in fostering stability in the wake of a yet-to-be defeated Islamic State.


The authors propose that NATO step in to fill what it calls an impending "vacuum left as the caliphate collapses," heading off alternatives including "chaos or Iran, backed by Russia, filling the void, with great harm to U.S. and allied interests in either case." The op-ed never explains why Iran, neighboring Syria and Iraq, is less qualified to influence the region than the United States which exists literally oceans away and shares nothing in terms of history, culture, language or shared interests in stability and peace.

The op-ed would literally claim:
It was an interesting choice by the authors to showcase one of NATO's most stupendous and continuing failures in Afghanistan with mention of the ISAF, a force that not only has failed to bring stability to the Central Asia nation in over a decade and a half of occupation, but has presided over the emergence of the Islamic State there where previously it had no presence.

The reality of what NATO is versus what The National Interest op-ed attempts to pass it off as, resembles more of a sales pitch for a shoddy product than a genuine attempt at geopolitical analysis or problem solving. But the truth goes deeper still.

5 Day Countdown To Montana Special Election-- It's All About Getting Out The Vote "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Rob Quist might be hard for Steny Hoyer and his K Street goons to relate to

The Montana special election to fill Ryan Zinke's seat is this Thursday-- 5 days from today. Recent public polling shows Democrat Rob Quist getting closer. Internal polling-- done for both parties after Comey was fired by Trump-- supposedly shows a dead heat. A dead heat means the race isn't about who's spending more on TV ads; it means who has a better ground game and who gets out the vote on Thursday. The DNC has decided to kick in in a big way for Ossoff's race next month in GA-06. But they're not helping in Montana. The DCCC and Pelosi's PAC have given huge money towards Ossoff's race but just modestly for Quist. This week Alex Isendstadt made a big fuss over a $25,000 late ad buy from the House Majority PAC in Montana. That's a drop in the bucket compared to what they're spending in Georgia. He wrote that "the buy is a small one; the candidates and parties have so far spent more than $8 million on the Montana race. But it underscores how Democrats are making a late play in the contest." It doesn't sound like much of a play to me at all. Republican groups have spent around $4 million bolstering Gianforte while the DCCC has put $280,000 into Montana. Fuckers.
Republicans remain confident that Gianforte will pull out a win. But with Trumps turmoil dominating the headlines, GOP officials are on alert. Two party strategists who had reviewed recent polling said they believed Gianfortes lead was around 5 percentage points. Up but not out of the woods, one Republican strategist said.

To buttress Gianforte, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced that it would air $200,000 worth of com...

What That Stunning Photograph Of Chelsea Manning Really Shows "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Samantha Allen for Daily Beast - French philosopher Roland Barthes famously theorized that a photograph can have a punctum, a poignant visual accident that pricks and bruises the viewer, disrupting the literal contents of the image. The punctum is the arresting detail that turns a simple family snapshot into an unforgettable image. For me, the punctum in the first photograph Chelsea Manning distributed of herself on Thursdayafter her release from prison earlier this weekisnt her striking red lipstick or even her piercing, lightly-lined blue eyes but rather a certain quality of her hair: soft, downy, obviously freshly-washed. That single, difficult-to-describe detail says more to me about Mannings post-release feelings than words ever could. The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents the whistleblowing Army private, sent the photograph to reporters on Thursday afternoon with the simple note that it is the preferred image to use in stories about Chelsea moving forward for the time being. At the same time, Manning herself unveiled the photograph on Twitter and her new Instagram account, where she has spent the last two days sharing pictures of simple post-release pleasures...

According to the BBC News website a "moderate" has won the Iranian presidential election - though, unlike me, the BBC didn't put the word 'moderate' in inverted commas. 


Indeed, the BBC seems to be calling Hassan Rouhani a moderate (without qualification) across much of its output. Today's lunchtime news on BBC One, for example, saw the newsreader say, " Mr Rouhani, a moderate who agreed a deal with world powers to limit Iran's nuclear programme...", and Jeremy Bowen was on this morning saying (of Mr Rouhani), "He's a moderate who would like more openness in politics and society".

Hmm.

Trump must condemn Saudi juvenile executions "IndyWatch Feed World"

(Reprieve)  Human rights organization Reprieve has urged President Trump to call for the release of three Saudi juveniles who face execution on terrorism charges, after they allegedly attended protests.

Ali al Nimr, Dawoud al Marhoon and Abdullah al Zaher were 17, 17 and 15 when they were arrested in the wake of protests in 2012. They were tortured into making false confessions, and sentenced to death in a secretive counter-terrorism court. They could now be executed at any time by beheading and, in Alis case, crucifixion.

According to reports today, the Saudi government plans to make counter-terrorism cooperation a central theme of President Trumps visit to Riyadh tomorrow; the visit will include a counter-terrorism forum and the opening of a centre to fight radical thought.

In a letter to the President, Reprieve has urged him to secure the release of Ali, Dawoud and Abdullah. The letter warns Mr Trump that the Saudi authorities are persecuting innocent children in the name of the global fight against terrorism.

Image Source: DonkeyHotey, Flickr,
Donald Trump Caricature

Commenting, Maya Foa, a Director at Reprieve, said:

The Saudi authorities are presiding over a wave of repression, with children as young as 15 sentenced to beheading for the so-called crime of attending peaceful protests all in the name of the war on terror. Now these same authorities are seeking to court President Trump with their counter-terrorism strategies.

 

Torture, forced confessions, secret courts and executions of children should not be part of any countrys national security strategy. President Trump should stand up for American values by condemning these abuses and he must call for the release of Ali, Dawoud and Abdullah.

Bangladesh police raid opposition leaders office BNP said the drive was part of a conspiracy against Zia "IndyWatch Feed War"

AFP/File | Bangladesh police have raided the offices of the main opposition leader and two times former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia

DHAKA (AFP)  

Bangladesh police swooped on the offices of the countrys main opposition leader hunting anti-state documents on Saturday, sparking angry protests by hundreds of party supporters.

Officials smashed locks to enter the office of two times former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia in Dhaka, in what her party claimed was the latest politically-motivated move against the countrys embattled opposition as it prepares for the next general election.

Hundreds of supporters of Zias Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) rushed to the site after news spread about the raid and staged a protest outside the two-storey office building in the upscale Gulshan neighbourhood.

Dozens of police scoured the building for two hours but later said they have not found any materials in the search.

We entered the office following a court order to search for anti-state and anti-government documents, Gulshan police chief Abu Baker Siddique told AFP.

The BNP said the drive was part of a conspiracy against Zia who is facing about three dozen cases of alleged graft, treason and violence.

This is a politically motivated raid by the government. It is a move to taint our party leaders image, BNP spokesman Ruhul Kabir Rizvi told AFP.

Rizvi said police disabled close circuit cameras in the office during the operation as well as breaking door locks.

In recent months BNP has held meetings across to mobilise supports and prepare the party for the next general election, which is due in January 2019, but analysts have said may be held sometime next year.

The BNP opted to boycott the last polls in 2014 over fears it would be rigged, allowing Zias bitter rival Sheikh Hasinas party to win without even contesting most of the parliamentary seats.

Since then opposition officials have said tens of thousands of their activists and supporters have been arrested and prosecuted by the government.

"Well, I wouldn't accept them" "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Laura Kuennsberg, holding forth

This week's Newswatch featured complaints about how BBC news bulletins are becoming "the Laura Kuenssberg show" with Laura providing a "running commentary" and plenty of "personal opinion". (Well, yes).

There were also 'complaints from both sides' about bias, with 'one side' complaining that the BBC is giving far too much airtime to Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party and 'the other side' (the more numerous one) complaining that the BBC is adopting "a sneering and condescending tone" in its interviewing of Labour its reporting of Labour policies. (Oddly, both could be true).

Also the BBC's economics editor Kamal Ahmed came under fire his piece on Labour's manifesto on Tuesday's News at Six, which seriously botched the figures - to Labour's disadvantage. Kamal's graphics especially made out that those earning over 123,000 would have to pay and extra 23,000 in income tax - whereas, apparently, the correct figure would be 2,150! (Radio 4's More or Less also debunked Kamal Ahmed this week). cock-up or conspiracy? Newswatch viewers were split between those who thought it was a "cock-up" and those who thought it was a "conspiracy". (Cock-up, I'd say).

And there were complaints about the use of vox pops, with a slightly absurd clip of John Pienaar asking panting gym users, mid-exercising, about their views of Jeremy Corbyn. What purpose do they serve? How representative are they? (Good questions!)

Answering all of this was our old friend Katy Searle. She was having none of the criticisms. (Sho...

'ShadowBrokers' hacking group launches subscription service that may include selling nuclear secrets "IndyWatch Feed World"

The hacking group known as 'The Shadow Brokers' is pushing a monthly subscription service offering members top secret information including "compromised network data" from the nuclear and ballistic missile programs of Russia, China, North Korea and Iran. As a reminder, we have noted in the past, many security experts believe the Equation Group is the National Security Agency, and that the Shadow Brokers may be part of a psychological operations campaign run by Russian intelligence. Shadow Brokers first emerged last August, offering to auction hacking exploits it said were used by the NSA's elite hacking team known as Equation Group (officially named Tailored Access Operations). NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and others confirmed the leak was authentic. In December, Shadow Brokers cancelled its auction and offered to sell the exploits. In April, the group released passwords to the rest of the hacking exploits in a move described as a protest against President Donald Trump for abandoning his base. The release included a Windows SMB [Server Message Block] exploit, EternalBlue, which was leveraged in the recent WannaCry global ransomware attack. In its Tuesday blog post, the group expressed its surprise that governments or tech companies didn't bid in its past auctions Comment: The "Russian Intelligence" connection is just some security expert's belief, no proof.

Originally published by The Anarchist Library

  1. Fascism is widespread in many industrial and postcolonial countries, existing as extreme nationalism, neo-Nazism, or some other extreme authoritarianism. In nearly all cases, the rank-and-file of the fascist movements tend to be dispossessed members of a privileged group in society (e.g. poor whites). In pre-WWII Germany, most working-class Germans were impoverished by the Depression, in contrast to their self-image as a wealthy, powerful nation. In modern Germany, neo-Nazi political parties win the most votes, often more than 10% of the total, in states where unemployment is highest. In the US, poor southern whites who do not enjoy the wealth promised to white people of the riches...

Why We Need to Start Listening to Insects "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

You may not think of the buzz and whine of insects as musical, but the distinctive pitch of mosquito wingbeats could tell us how to fight malaria.

Credit: Matthew the Horse

Its a warm summer afternoon in the Tanzanian village of Lupiro and Mikkel Brydegaard is crouching in a brick hut, trying to fix a broken laser. Next to him, on a tall tripod, three telescopes point through a window at a tree in the distance. A laptop rests on an upturned box, waiting to receive a signal.

With a working laser, this system is known as lidar like radar, Brydegaard tells me, but using a laser instead of radio waves. The setup is supposed to gather precise data about the movement of malaria mosquitoes. But as the sun starts to set outside, Brydegaard is getting nervous. He and his colleagues have spent a week in Tanzania, and their device still hasnt started collecting data. Theyre almost out of time.

Tomorrow, a solar eclipse will blot out the sun over Tanzania an event that occurs only once every few decades here, and that Brydegaard and his team from Lund University in Sweden have travelled thousands of miles to see. Their immediate aim is to see if the eclipse affects the behaviour of disease-carrying insects. Their larger mission, however, is to demonstrate that lasers can revolutionise how insects are studied.

Commentary
The wall Street Journal
May 19, 2017 7:28 p.m. ET

Republicans in Congress cant control President Trumps rolling controversies, but they are getting plenty of bad advice on how to handle them. Democrats and Never Trumpers agree that the GOP should denounce Mr. Trump, try to remove him from office, and if that fails wait for the Pelosi Democratic Congress to arrive in 2018. This is supposed to be requisite punishment for trying to work with a duly elected if deeply flawed President.

We trust Republicans will reject this counsel of suicide, because there is a better way: Get on with passing the agenda they campaigned on. The Trump investigations will proceed at the same time, and Republicans can respond to new facts as they develop. Whatever happens on the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, Republicans have an obligation to fulfill their reform mandate while they still have the political power to do so.

***This has the added advantage of being good for the country. The U.S. has struggled with subpar economic growth for more than a decade, and Republicans won in part because they said theyd do better.

A series of recent revelations involving the president has threatened to swamp his legislative agenda.

 Tax reform and deregulation are prime opportunities to unlock the growth and business investment that increase middle-class incomes. On Obama Care, the GOP can provide relief from surging insurance premiums and diminished choices by replacing the failing entitlement with a more market-based system.

Confirming conservative judges would correct for President Obamas progressive tilt on the federal bench and perhaps restrain the runaway administrative state. And rebuilding the military is crucial to U.S. security in a world of increasing threats.

Going on policy offense is also the best defensive politics. Democrats want to talk about Mr. Trump all the time because they know this gives the public the impression that nothing else is happening in Wash...

An Exhilarating Celebration of Indian Dance in New York "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

A show in New York brought together Indian-style dancers from across the world, to share their stories and their talents.

New York City is used to seeing weird things on the street but even by New York standards, this event on 14th Street a couple of weeks ago was truly astonishing. Over 30 dancers of various Indian dance styles poured onto the sidewalk in full makeup, costumes, ghungroos and flowers, while New York City firemen rushed through them, fire trucks and alarms ringing out. No, it wasnt some conceptual art performance event, it was a real evacuation of the 14th Street Y Theatre. The alarms went off just when the remarkable From the Horses Mouth programme began. Luckily the firehouse was right next door and it was a false alarm, and the dancers and audience members trouped back in.

From The Horses Mouth, Magical Tales of Real Dancers is a highly unusual programme conceived by Tina Kroll and Jamie Cunningham, now in its 19th year. Started in New York, one of the worlds most dance-mad cities, it is structured around dancers and figures from the dance world impressarios, critics who sit on a chair on stage and tell a short tale of their life in dance, while other dancers perform around them in a structured format. This wonderful concept has combined very varied performers and styles, with almost everyone who is anyone in the American dance scene participating over the years.

Trump's Ship is Going Down "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I dont remember a time when someone on President Obamas staff said something like this about their boss:

Every day he looks more and more like a complete moron, said one senior administration official who also worked on Trumps campaign. I cant see Trump resigning or even being impeached, but at this point I wish hed grow a brain and be the man that he sold himself as on the campaign.

Or this:

If Donald Trump gets impeached, he will have one person to blame: Donald Trump, one of those administration officials said.

Trump spent the hours before leaving on his nine-day foreign adventure screwing every pooch in the Western Hemisphere. And he left his administration shell-shocked, distraught, and downright angry. He also made a pretty iron-tight case for removing him from office.

David C. Gomez, a former FBI assistant special agent in charge, said Trumps comments demonstrated a profound inability to grasp the potential consequences of his words.

In terms of potential criminal activity, its amateur night at the White House, Gomez told The Daily Beast. These guysand Trump especiallydont know how to not implicate themselves.

On a big case like this, the ideal thing would be a wiretap on your number one subject, Gomez added. But in this case, you dont need a wiretap. He just comes right out and says it.

Imagine for a second the vanishingly small possibility that theres simply nothing to the allegations of cooperation between the Russians and the Trump campaign. If Trump knew they would find nothing, then he would have been wise to urge complete cooperation and to assure the public that he would honor their concern by doing every thing he could to assure a speedy resolution of the investigation. He has done the exact opposite.

Julian Assange Claims Vindication That Doesn't Exist "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I'm more than a little suspicious that Sweden has dropped its rape charges against Julian Assange as part of a coordinated effort to get him out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. The official explanation is consistent with this theory:

In explaining why Sweden was dropping the investigation, [Swedens director of public prosecution, Marianne] Ny told a news conference in Stockholm that all possibilities to advance the investigation have now been exhausted and that the legal proceedings could continue only if Assange were present in Sweden.

But she said that if Assange returns to Sweden before the statute of limitations lapses in 2020, then an investigation could be reopened.

What's the point of keeping the investigation going if all it does is provide a pretext for Assange to ask the Ecuadorians for asylum? The authorities in Ecuador are clearly tired of the arrangement and even briefly cut off Assange's internet connection last year out of concern that he was meddling in the American election. But they weren't going to kick him out so long as he was clearly vulnerable to extradition.

Whether he is still vulnerable to extradition isn't known because the British won't confirm or deny that the Americans have registered such a request, but at least we know now that there's no certainty of extradition. Instead, there's a much less significant risk of about a year of jail time for jumping bail.

British police said that Assange still faces arrest for jumping bail if he walks out of diplomatic protection, which Assange claims is still needed to keep him from being extradited to the United States to face charges of disclosing confidential military and diplomatic documents...

...The maximum penalty for breaching bail is up to a year in prison or a fine.

The police also recognized that Assange is now wanted for a much less serious offense and said they would provide a level of resourcing which is proportionate to that offense.

Will the Ecuadorians continue to provide him sanctuary to avoid a mere bail-jumping charge? Will this provide them the pretext they need to end their interminable relationship with Assange?

One thing should be clear, and that's that the Americans want Assange more than ever, although that desire probably doesn't go to the top.

President Trump was highly supportive of WikiLeaks during his 2016 campaign for office, when the website released hacked emails from the account of Hillary Clintons campaign chief, John Podesta. Trump once told a rally: We love WikiLeaks. They revealed a lot.

Foreign Leaders Shouldn't Appease Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Its a shame, to put it mildly, that foreign leaders are developing strategies for having personal interactions with our president that resemble how battered wives deal with their husbands when they arrive home angry from work or the saloon.

For foreign leaders trying to figure out the best way to approach an American president unlike any they have known, it is a time of experimentation. Embassies in Washington trade tips and ambassadors send cables to presidents and ministers back home suggesting how to handle a mercurial, strong-willed leader with no real experience on the world stage, a preference for personal diplomacy and a taste for glitz.

After four months of interactions between Mr. Trump and his counterparts, foreign officials and their Washington consultants say certain rules have emerged: Keep it short no 30-minute monologue for a 30-second attention span. Do not assume he knows the history of the country or its major points of contention. Compliment him on his Electoral College victory. Contrast him favorably with President Barack Obama. Do not get hung up on whatever was said during the campaign. Stay in regular touch. Do not go in with a shopping list but bring some sort of deal he can call a victory.

If you were prepping people for Donald Trump, the two or three points would be: one, bear in mind this is still a guy who focuses on wins, Peter Westmacott, a former British ambassador to the United States, said. He likes to have wins for America and wins for himself from bilateral meetings.

Secondly, he continued, he is a deal maker, a pragmatist. Third, this is a guy with a limited attention span. He absolutely wont want to listen to visitors droning on for a half-hour or longer if they need an interpreter.

Its all about avoiding the temper and soothing the ego. The surest way to arouse his temper is to test his knowledge or his concentration. Almost as bad is to talk about yourself and your needs. So, walk on eggshells. Tell him he is better than his adversaries. Give him something he wants that he hasnt earned. Dont harangue him or bore him with details that distract him from his focus on himself and his worries.

First we had Sean Spicer hiding in the White House bushes and now we have this:

The ceremony occurred in the Blue Room of the White House, where many senior law enforcement officials including the Secret Service director had gathered. Mr. Comey who is 6 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing a dark blue suit that day told Mr. Wittes that he tried to blend in with the blue curtains in the back of the room, in the hopes that Mr. Trump would not spot him and call him out.

He thought he had gotten through and not been noticed or singled out and that he was going to get away without an individual interaction, Mr. Wittes said Mr. Comey told him.

But Mr. Trump spotted Mr. Comey and called him out.

Oh and theres Jim, Mr. Trump said. Hes become more famous than me.

With an abashed look on his face, Mr. Comey walked up to Mr. Trump.

Comey said that as he was walking across the room he was determined that there wasnt going to be a hug, Mr. Wittes said. It was bad enough there was going to be a handshake. And Comey has long arms so Comey said he pre-emptively reached out for a handshake and grabbed the presidents hand. But Trump pulled him into an embrace and Comey didnt reciprocate. If you look at the video, its one person shaking hands and another hugging.

He literally tried to use the blue drapes as camouflage.

Man of Extraordinary Integrity Launches Witch Hunt "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

As Judd Legum points out at Think Progress, on May 10th Vice-President Mike Pence said that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is a man of extraordinary independence and integrity and a reputation in both political parties of great character. Also on May 10th, Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that Rosenstein is a man of upstanding character and essentially the gold standard at the Department of Justice. And on May 11th, President Trump said of Rosenstein that Hes highly respected, very good guy, very smart guy. The Democrats like him; the Republicans like him.

So, what does Trump say about Rosenstein now that hes appointed Robert Mueller to prosecute any crimes related to the Trump campaigns coordination with Russian meddling in our presidential election?

Then he added in the obligatory woe is me tweet:

As everyone knows, you can identify a witch because witches are made of wood. Since wood floats on water, as do ducks, if all the allegations against Trump weigh the same as a duck, then this will be a very successful witch hunt. Those who are wise in the ways of science understand this.

For those of us who arent quite so rigorously reality-based, however, it seems odd that a good guy who is highly respected by everyone and is the gold standard at the Justice Department would authorize a former head of the FBI to prosecute crimes that not only do not exist but cannot possibly exist.

How Trumpism is Faring in My Precinct "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Tuesday was Election Day in Pennsylvania, but there wasnt a whole lot to get excited about on the ballot out here in the Philly burbs. The main thing getting decided was who the candidates would be for school board elections in November. Now, my precinct is in my sons school building, so that seemed fitting. And I know how my precinct votes and has voted in years past. Its a Republican precinct in an historically Republican county, but it preferred Obama to McCain and Clinton to Trump. Romney carried it 52%-48%.

I dont think you care who won the school board primaries, but you might be interested in the turnout numbers. For the first time in memory, more registered Democrats came to the polls than registered Republicans, and it wasnt close. In fact, 21% of registered Democrats cast a ballot compared to only 12% of registered Republicans. Those are pretty miserable numbers for both sides, obviously, but the 12% number is crazy bad.

I know its only one data point, but it gives me insight into how my local community is feeling about politics right now. Only the most politically motivated people turn out in local elections like this, and the die-hard Republicans in my neighborhood really did not feel like voting.

Now, in the last couple of school board elections of this type the local Democratic leadership had someone standing outside the polls asking Democrats to vote for a Republican candidate because theyd granted her dual-access to our ballot line since she isnt all that bad and she was the best we could hope for. And, its true, she isnt bad at all. But, this time, the Democratic candidate came close to doubling the vote of the best performing Republican.

So, if this new voting behavior were to stand, it would eventually change the entire battlefield for our local elections and the makeup of our school board.

I havent examined how similar school board elections and turnout numbers looked in the Trumpian parts of Pennsylvania, and that needs to be done to get a full appreciation of how the Trump presidency, with all its problems, is reshaping the politics of the Keystone State. So far, all I know is that my precinct just went nearly two-to-one for a Democratic school board member when in the recent past we couldnt even field a competitive candidate from our own party.

The Republicans had 12% turnout, people. Twelve percent!

All Trump Has Left is the Support of His Base "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The president was up in New London, Connecticut today, talking to the graduating cadets at the Coast Guard Academy. The way he talked about his presidency reminds me of Vito Corleone hovering over his dead son, Sonny, saying Look what they did to my boy!

Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media, he said. No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You cant let them get you down, you cant let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.

Its typical of Trump to make a graduation ceremony all about him rather than the people who toiled so hard to earn their degrees. But blaming the media is the only tool he has left in his box. If any of the news that is being reported is perceived as true and accurate by his core base of supporters, hes pretty well screwed.

He needs to maintain their support to keep congressional Republicans at bay. Heres Mike Allens take:

Trumps campaign sent supporters a fundraising email yesterday with the subject line SABOTAGE: You already knew the media was out to get us. But sadly its not just the fake news There are people within our own unelected bureaucracy that want to sabotage President Trump and our entire America First movement.

Watch for Trump to continue stoking his base, because his support there is what gives him power over lawmakers: Theyre much less likely to abandon or undermine him if he remains popular in their states or districts. Its his most basic survival strategy and its another reason he wont change.

For once, I think Allen nailed it.

Trump is Being Taken Apart, Step By Step "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

J. Edgar Hoover died when I was still in nursery school, but I knew his name from about that time. People talked about him differently than they talked about anyone else. He was fearsome and untouchable because he knew secrets about everybody, especially the politicians in Washington. He seemed like some kind of evil Santa Claus who could control peoples fate depending on whether theyd been naughty or nice, and apparently every adult who mattered had been naughty. Nixon finally resigned a few weeks before I started kindergarten, but my house was filled with much older people and they discussed Watergate while I played with my blocks and trains. Hoover had been gone for over two years by then, but it felt like hed had an influence even from the grave. I had to wait more than three decades to get a confirmation of that feeling, but it came when Deep Throat was revealed to have been Mark Felt, the Associate Director for Hoovers FBI, who felt like hed been unjustly passed over for a promotion after Hoovers death.

Maybe James Comey shares little more in common with Hoover than former job titles, but he might be able to take down a president while hes still living, and in broad daylight. For a lot of people, this is an example of a Deep State or an incompetent Establishment carrying out a coup that overrules the verdict the people made at the ballot box. And, its true, our clandestine services have been known to orchestrate coups and meddle in elections in other countries. The presumption in these cases is that this meddling is unjustified or even immoral, but I dont know that people would have felt much differently about Watergate if they knew someone at the top of the FBI was leaking to Woodward and Bernstein. Nixon really had committed crimes and he really was committing more as he tried to cover his tracks. The way to make sure he was removed from office wasnt to prosecute him. It was to make sure the people knew what he had done.

Its obviously not just Comey who is crippling the president with leaks. There are leakers very close to the president, perhaps even in his inner circle. There are people leaking throughout the intelligence community and the Justice Department. They are doing so, most of them, because of sincere alarm and for patriotic reasons. And the result is this:

In interviews, multiple White House officials indicated they feel under siege unsure who in the intelligence community was leaking, how much damaging information was out there, when the next proverbial shoe would drop and what Trump might say.

Staffers shuttled back and forth among West Wing offices debating what to say without divulging confidential material or getting anything wrong. A deflated and exhausted Sea...

Why Partisans Stick With Their Presidents "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Its not surprising that if you go back and look at the three most significant presidential scandals in modern history (Watergate, Iran-Contra, Lewinsky) that youll discover that partisans stayed mostly loyal to their president and that the most likely to turn were the most moderate members from the most competitive states and districts. You can call this putting partisanship over country if you like, and I think thats fair.

But, at the same time, people work hard to get presidents elected for specific reasons, and when a president is at risk of going down it puts a lot more at risk than the fate of one chief executive. Without getting bogged down in the qualitative differences between burgling your opponents' headquarters, trading arms to terrorists, and lying about an extramarital dalliance, there were people who actually cared about policy who stood to lose if their champion was laid low.

For conservatives who worked feverishly to deny George H.W. Bush the 1980 Republican nomination, the loss of Reagan would have been a catastrophe. Fans of Nixon couldnt be comforted by the idea of the more moderate Gerald Ford taking over the job. I dont think Gore presented the same stumbling block to supporters of Clinton, but he didnt have the same once-in-a-generation political talent which became obvious when he lost to George W. Bush in 2000.

Trump is a different animal. Who are the people who really stand to lose if Trump is replaced by Mike Pence? Theyre not serving in Congress, thats for sure. Almost no one in Congress endorsed Trump. Almost none of them preferred him to Pence in January, and even fewer do so now.

To be sure, there are Trump voters out there who like him and didnt and wouldnt like any Republican alternative. But theyre not in charge of holding the president accountable.

Just on ideological grounds alone, Trump doesnt command much loyalty.

So, while Republican lawmakers may be concerned that theyll be voted out of office if they turn on Trump, or turn on him prematurely, he has less protection than any of the previous presidents whose actions have tested their partys elected officials in Congress.

Hes also a far bigger headache than any of his predecessors, including Nixon. Nixon couldnt shake his original sin no matter how he wriggled and writhed, but he didnt create a new crisis several times a day. He wasnt grossly and obviously unprepared to deal with foreign policy or classified information. He didnt contradict his aides on a routine basis. He had an actual legislative plan and he was capable of implementing it. The only thing that Nixon and Trump seem to truly share is a common enemy in the intelligence community. Dont f...

Why Trump Looks So Compromised "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Less than a week ago, Politico Magazine published Susan Glassers piece: Russias Oval Office Victory Dance. At the time, there were three main narratives. First, there was the timing. Coming the day after the president unceremoniously fired FBI director James Comey for (many suspected) investigating his ties to Russia, it seemed a little inopportune to meet with Russias foreign minister Sergey Lavrov in the White House. Second, since the American press was barred from the meeting there were no photographs. Yet, a Russian photographer was allowed in and his pictures quickly appeared on the Russian wire services, which even top Trump officials admitted was a boneheaded blunder, especially because it revealed that the controversial Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak was also in attendance. And, third, there was the question of why the meeting was happening at all, since it isnt customary for our head of state to meet with another countrys foreign minister. Glasser explained this last part:

The chummy White House visitphotos of the president yukking it up with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak were released by the Russian Foreign Ministry since no U.S. press was allowed to cover the visithad been one of Putins asks in his recent phone call with Trump, and indeed the White House acknowledged this to me later Wednesday. He chose to receive him because Putin asked him to, a White House spokesman said of Trumps Lavrov meeting. Putin did specifically ask on the call when they last talked.

The meeting was Lavrovs first in the White House since 2013and came after several years of the Obama administrations flat-out refusal to grant him an Oval Office audience, two former senior White House officials told me. The Russians were begging us for years to do that, one of the former officials said. They were constantly pushing for it and we were constantly saying no.

This was interesting on several levels. Even before Russia was caught breaking into our political parties virtual filing cabinets and trying to affect the results of our presidential election, our governments policy was to shun Sergey Lavrov. But Trump quickly granted the request. Originally, Lavrov was planning to come no closer to DC than Fairbanks, Alaska where he and Kislyak did in fact attend the Arctic Council. But suddenly he was being welcomed into the inner sanctum of the Oval Office with a photographer in tow.

It was also interesting that the Russians didnt see...

Preet Bharara is on the Warpath Against Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Preet Bharara is the inspiration for the character played by Paul Giamatti on Showtimes hit program Billions. Im not sure how he feels about that since the portrayal isnt entirely sympathetic, but its an indication of Bhararas reputation in certain powerful circles, as well as of the importance of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. As the show indicates, the Southern District covers Wall Street, and investigating the richest people in America for possible indictment is not a job for the weak kneed.

After coming into office, Trump quickly asked for the resignations of the currently serving U.S. Attorneys, but he made an exception in Bhararas case. He explicitly asked Bharara to stay on, which may have been an acknowledgement of his reputation or simply admiration for his status as a fellow celebrity. I dont know.

What was more significant was that the president quickly changed his mind and fired Bharara, and that this decision came at a time when rumors were circling that Bharara might be investigating him or his cabinet.

At first, Bharara expressed his astonishment and displeasure but was fairly muted about it. Thats changing now.

Over the weekend, he had a piece published in the Washington Post that called for a truly bipartisan investigation in Congress of Russian interference in our election. It also called for an independent and uncompromised special counsel to oversee the Russia investigation.

And then today, Bharara took to Twitter to comment on rumors that Trump is thinking about firing a bunch of his senior staff.

SCOTUS Won't Save NC's Racist Voting Law "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In denying a writ of certiorari to those who want to defend North Carolinas discriminatory 2013 election law, the Supreme Court pointedly refused to remark on the merits of the appeal. But we can surmise a couple of things.

First, the Court previously divided 4-4 when it was asked to overturn the 4th District Court of Appeals and allow North Carolina to use its law in the 2016 election. Without a ninth Justice to break the tie, the appeals court ruling stood. Now the court has Neal Gorsuch, presumably a fifth conservative vote, but to grant certiorari, there only needs to be four Justices in favor. So, it appears that there were no more than three conservatives who were willing to hear this appeal.

While the fate of the law and the question of whether it was too late to change it before the election are two different questions, it look like at least one conservative abandoned the overall cause of voter disenfranchisement sometime between last summer and today.

I suppose we can take some small measure of comfort from that. The 4th District had ruled that the law was designed with almost surgical precision to deny African-Americans their full voting power. That all the conservatives on the Supreme Court were nonetheless inclined to let the law stand in place at least through the November election was an indication of how widespread hostility to the black vote is within the conservative movement.

Its not entirely clear how to draw the line between racist intent and naked self interest. For example, one provision of the law banned the practice of preregistering seventeen year olds to vote so they would be eligible when they turned eighteen. That seems designed to suppress the youth vote, presumably because surveys indicated they lean to the left. Of course, surveys also indicated that blacks would vote heavily for Democratic candidates. At a minimum, the intent is to craft a set of rules that will result in fewer votes for the opposing side. But the court went further and stated that the intent was discriminatory. Voter ID laws are a convenient way...

More weapons gone missing from German military than previously assumed Second German military scandal this month "IndyWatch Feed War"

Reports suggest that several weapons of war have gone missing from the Bundeswehr depots, in the past few years. The number of missing weapons is apparently higher than many had thought.

Bundeswehr Soldaten Tarnuniform (picture-alliance/dpa/S. Sauer)

German news magazine Der Spiegel reported that the Bundeswehr had discovered numerous weapons had gone missing when it inventories stocks after target practice exercises.

The report said that in 2015, the Bundeswehr had lost three G36-type assault rifles, two G3 rifles, and one P8 pistol. In 2016, the Bundeswehr lost two G36-type assault rifles, one P8 pistol, and three flare guns.

The magazine said the information was obtained from the Ministry of Defense.

Sinister terror plans

Germanys Federal Prosecutors Office is now investigating whether the theft of some of those weapons could be linked to first lieutenant Franco A., who is in custody under the suspicion of having planned several terror attacks.

In April, it was discovered that Franco A. had been living a double life, registering as a refugee and plotting terror attacks along with his alleged accomplice Maximilian T. on various high-profile targets in Germany. The two had apparently planned to blame the attacks on refugees, using the fake identity as a cover.

German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen promised major reforms to the Bundeswehr after the revelations.

The Federal Prosecutors Office is conducting a probe into the origins of two stolen G36-type assault rifles, one P8 pistol, two pieces of radio equipment, and 60 rounds of ammunition, which apparently all were stolen at the Bundeswehr facility in Munster in February when an armored vehicle there was broken into. It was later discovered that a service member with far-right sympathies and links to Franco A. and Maximilian T. had been stationed in Munster.

The investigation into Franco A. has already established that the suspected terror plotter had taken large rounds of ammunition from Bundeswehr stocks, presumably to use for terror attacks.

Over 140 killed in Libya after UN-backed govt militia ravages rival military base "IndyWatch Feed World"

Dozens of troops and civilians have reportedly been slaughtered in an attack on an airbase in southern Libya. The attack was blamed on the militia backing the Tripoli-based government of National Accord (GNA), which denies that it sanctioned the carnage. The attack unfolded Thursday afternoon at Brak Al-Shati airbase, which since December has been under control of the Libyan National Army (LNA), rivaling the government in Tripoli. LNA, headed by General Khalifa Haftar, does not recognize the authority of the GNA and is linked to the rival House of Representatives (HoR), the country's elected legislature, which operates from the city of Tobruk on Libya's eastern Mediterranean coast. The so-called Third Force militia, hailing from the city of Misrata, which is loyal to the UN-backed government of Prime Minister Fayez Al Sarraj, launched an attack on the airbase as the LNA soldiers were returning from a military parade held there. The servicemen were not able to offer much resistance as they were unarmed, LNA spokesman Ahmad Al-Mimari said in a statement on Friday, as cited by AFP. "Most of them were executed," Al-Mimari said.

Vietnam Has Fulfilled Ho Chi Minhs Dream
The best homage of the Vietnamese people to Ho Chi Minh is to have amply fulfilled his dream of building a nation ten times more beautiful, after the destruction unleashed on the country by the U.S. Army

Hanoi.- The best homage of the Vietnamese people to Ho Chi Minh is to have amply fulfilled his dream of building a nation ten times more beautiful, after the destruction unleashed on the country by the U.S. Army.

Today, 127 years since the Vietnamese leaders birth, his nation is characterized by rapid economic growth and a great capacity for transformation, which put it in an advantageous position in the face of 21st century challenges.

Born May 19, 1890, in the commune of Kim Lien, Nam Dan district, in the central province of Nghe An, President Ho Chi Minh led the struggle for national independence, finally achieved in 1945.

At the time, Vietnam had been under French colonial rule for 30 years. From a young age, Minh became aware of the change he desired for the future of his homeland independence and freedom.

Under his leadership, Vietnam faced the worlds most advanced warfare technology, in the hands of the United States, and emerged victorious. His strategy and political legacy are recognized throughout the world.

The path taken by the country, since the implementation of the Doi Moi (Renewal) Policy from 1986, has seen more than 20 million people lifted out of poverty in less than two decades, while primary school attendance has risen to almost 100%, and life expectancy up to 70 years.

Over the same period, the country multiplied its GDP per capita five-fold, and diversified its export base. However, its vision for the future is much more ambitious as Vietnams main goal is to become an industrialized nation before 2035.

According to authorities, the Vietnamese are proud to have fulfilled the desire of their greatest leader and guide, and now intend to build a country 50 or 100 times more beautiful and prosperous.

According to Prensa Latina reports, Vietnams most senior authorities recently paid tribute to the revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh, known as the father of the nations independence. The ceremony was headed by the Genera...

For months now, the Russians have been demonized by the mainstream media as the evil nation that brought about the defeat of Clinton and the rise of Trump. Never one to stop and examine their own failings, namely the disillusionment of the working class, the Democrats and the left have continued to play up the specter of the Russian boogeyman.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the big lie behind the so-called Russian collusion; the lie the left tells themselves. By blaming an external party, they can conveniently look outward instead of inward and never have to account for their own failings. Of course, this is what leads to the level of political discourse we see today, with shaming language and speech restriction becoming par for the course for the left.

NORTH KOREA: Trumps War will be Another Mass Murder of Innocent Civilians "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

How the West portrays North Korea

Andre Vltchek
Global Research

When I think about North Korea, what first comes to my mind is a mist over the calm and majestic surface of the Taedong River near Pyongyang. Next I always recall two lovers, locked in a tender and almost desperate embrace, sitting side by side on the shore. I saw them every day, while taking brisk walks at dawn. Now I dont know for sure whether they were real or just a product of my fantasy; a sad and gentle reminder of all that has been already lost, as well as of all that should have happened but never really materialized.

Currently, as Donald Trumps armada is speeding towards China and DPRK, I keep recalling those moments: the cliff, the lovers and a lone fisherman with his long rod at the other side of the river. Everything in my memory connected to those dawns is now motionless, serene.

Sometimes I wonder whether words still have the power they once used to have. In the past, a beautiful poem, a confession, or a declaration of love, were capable of changing ones entire life, and sometimes even the entire destiny of a nation. But is this still the case, in this time and age? As a writer I often feel futility, even despair. Still, as an internationalist, I refuse to succumb to pessimism, and I try to use words as my weapons, again and again.

I have already said a lot about North Korea. I have shown images. I have spoken about the unimaginable pain this country has had to endure. I have spoken broadly about its tremendous gesture of helping to liberate and then to educate so many parts of the world, including the enormous and devastated continent of Africa.

Still the propaganda against the people of DPRK rules.

Let me try again; let me try again and again and again:

North Korea is a beautiful country, inhabited by human beings, with blood circulating through their veins. Despite what you are directly and indirectly told, these people feel pain and they are capable of experiencing great joy. Like others, they often dream, fall in love, and suffer when being insulte...

Donald Trumps son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has reportedly been identified as a person of interest in the ongoing investigation into possible ties between Russia and Donald Trumps campaign.

The Washington Post said a senior adviser to Mr Trump was among people investigators wanted to speak to. A New York magazine reporter then said the person in question was Mr Kushner, 36, who is married to Mr Trumps eldest daughter and who flew out of Washington on Friday night to accompany the President on his first official foreign trip.

Location, location, location goes high-tech: Facts and FAQs about satellite-based wildlife tracking "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

To understand the resource needs of a species, you need to know where individual animals go and what they do there. You can follow some animals around on foot or in a car, but you cant follow a whale, a herd of migrating caribou, or a far-flying pigeon or parrot they go too far, too fast, and in the wrong directions. In the last Facts & FAQs post, we learned how researchers use radio transmitter to search for animals in the field and determine their locations. Improvements in communications technology, specifically transmission to and from satellites, have since revolutionized wildlife tracking. [caption id="attachment_195948" align="aligncenter" width="768"] A GPS-tagged lioness leads her family in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe. Photo credit: George Powell[/caption] Most satellite tracking of wildlife uses either the ARGOS (Advanced Research and Global Observation Satellite) or the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite network. The two systems work in slightly different ways: ARGOS-based tags send information to their respective satellites, while GPS-based tags receive position data from their respective satellite network. Both systems send information on tagged animals locations directly to researchers, rather than the researcher having to manually locate the ping of a VHF radio transmitter in the field. How does ARGOS transmit to outer space and back? ARGOS-based satellite tracking is similar to VHF radio tracking, in that a small electronic tag fitted to an animal sends out an electromagnetic radio signal, except that in this case the signal is sent to a satellite in outer space instead

Like a drone falling out of the sky:

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/drone-pilots-dont-have-to-register-under-faas-controversial-rule-court-rules-2017-05-19

The Federal Aviation Administrations requirement that hobby drone users register their devices was struck down in an appeals court Friday.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in favor of John Taylor, a drone hobbyist who had challenged the legality of the FAAs drone-registration program.

The program, which was instituted in December 2015, required hobby drone owners to register through an FAA website for a $5 fee. Drone hobbyists were then issued a unique identification, which they were required to mark on their drones. Within the first month, nearly 300,000 drone owners had registered.

President Donald Trump arrived in the Middle East on Saturday, touching down in Saudi Arabia to begin his first trip abroad, a visit aimed at forging stronger alliances to combat terrorism while seeking to push past the series of controversies threatening to engulf his young administration.


LAGOS MAY 20TH (URHOBOTODAY)-President Donald Trump arrived in the Middle East on Saturday, touching down in Saudi Arabia to begin his first trip abroad, a visit aimed at forging stronger alliances to combat terrorism while seeking to push past the series of controversies threatening to engulf his young administration.
Trump flew to Riyadh overnight on Air Force One and was welcomed during an elaborate ceremony at the airport, punctuated by a military flyover and a handshake from Saudi King Salman. Trump is the only American president to make Saudi Arabia, or any majority Muslim country, his first stop overseas as president a scheduling choice designed in part to show respect to the region after more than a year of harsh anti-Muslim campaign rhetoric.
The presidents stop in Saudi Arabia kicks off an ambitious international debut. After two days of meetings in Riyadh, Trump will travel to Israel, have an audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican, and meet with allies at a NATO summit in Brussels and the Group of 7 wealthy nations in Sicily.
As he arrived, the president waved from the doorway of Air Force One and then descended the steps, joined by first lady Melania Trump. The 81-year-old King Salman, who used a cane for support, was brought to the steps of the plane on a golf cart. The two leaders exchanged pleasantries and Trump said it was a great honor to be there.
Several jets then flew overhead leaving a red, white and blue trail.
A few hours later, Trump tweeted for the first time on international soil as president, writing Great to be in Riyad...

Forget Death and Seek Life! Fascinating Insights into The Human Condition in 4,000-Year-Old Epic of Gilgamesh "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Forget Death and Seek Life! Fascinating Insights into The Human Condition in 4,000-Year-Old Epic of Gilgamesh

By Louise Pryke

Forget death and seek life! With these encouraging words, Gilgamesh, the star of the eponymous 4000-year-old epic poem, coins the worlds first heroic catchphrase.

At the same time, the young king encapsulates the considerations of mortality and humanity that lie at the heart of the worlds most ancient epic. While much has changed since, the epics themes are still remarkably relevant to modern readers.

Depending upon your point of view, Gilgamesh may be considered a myth-making biography of a legendary king, a love story, a comedy, a tragedy, a cracking adventure, or perhaps an anthology of origin stories.

All these elements are present in the narrative, and the diversity of the text is only matched by its literary sophistication. Perhaps surprisingly, given the extreme antiquity of the material, the epic is a masterful blending of complex existential queries, rich imagery and dynamic characters.

The narrative begins with Gilgamesh ruling over the city of Uruk as a tyrant. To keep him occupied, the Mesopotamian deities create a companion for him, the hairy wild man Enkidu.

The new Hsieh and Moretti paper on land use restrictions and economic growth "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

We quantify the amount of spatial misallocation of labor across US cities and its aggregate costs. Misallocation arises because high productivity cities like New York and the San Francisco Bay Area have adopted stringent restrictions to new housing supply, effectively limiting the number of workers who have access to such high productivity. Using a spatial equilibrium model and data from 220 metropolitan areas we find that these constraints lowered aggregate US growth by more than 50% from 1964 to 2009.

IS-claimed suicide bombings kill 35 in Iraq "IndyWatch Feed War"

BAGHDAD (AFP)  

Suicide bombings at checkpoints in Baghdad and south Iraq claimed by the Islamic State group killed at least 35 people and wounded dozens more, officials said on Saturday.

The bombings, which hit Iraq the previous night, came as Iraqi forces battle IS in Mosul in a massive operation launched more than seven months ago to retake the countrys second city from the jihadists.

In Baghdad, suicide car bombers attacked in the area of a checkpoint in the citys southern Abu Dsheer area, killing 24 people and wounding 20, Brigadier General Saad Maan told AFP.

Security forces were able to kill one of the attackers, but the second blew up his car bomb, Maan said.

IS issued a statement claiming the attack but gave a different account of how it unfolded, saying that one militant clashed with security forces using a light weapon before detonating an explosive belt, after which a second blew up a car bomb.

And in south Iraq, a suicide bomber blew up an explosives-rigged vehicle at a checkpoint on the outskirts of the city of Basra, killing 11 people and wounding 30, according to Riyadh Abdulamir, the head of Basra province health department.

Another militant who left a second explosives-rigged vehicle was killed by security forces, the Basra Operations Command said.

IS also claimed the Basra attack, but said that both bombs were successfully detonated.

The jihadist group overran large areas north and west of Baghdad in 2014, but Iraqi forces backed by US-led air strikes have since recaptured much of the territory they lost to the jihadists.

After recapturing the cities of Tikrit, Ramadi and Fallujah, Iraqi forces launched an operation to retake Mosul at the time the largest population centre still in IS hands last October.

The rise of anxiety in the age of inequality "IndyWatch Feed Politics.eu"

In a world so focused on mindless consumption and status acquisition, the developed worlds epidemic of anxiety and depression should come as no surprise.

Lyza/Flickr. Some rights reserved.Anxiety and depression are at unprecedented levels worldwide and the numbers are growing. The World Health Organization (WHO) describe it as an epidemic, and report that the period between 1990 and 2013 saw close to a 50% increase in the number of people suffering from one or both of these conditions, with the figure rising to 615 million people almost 10% of the worlds population. Given that many developing countries have yet to be extensively polled, these figures, while staggering, provide in all likelihood only an indication of the depth of the problem.

The weight of expectation

What are the factors that create such a fear-inducing, hostile environment? Why do so many people regard the world as unkind, intolerant and life as something to be feared?

In a recent programme broadcast on BBC Radio 4, listeners were invited to share their stories of anxiety. Parents rang in to tell of children nineteen, twelve, nine years of age who are living with the debilitating condition. Many callers spoke of being reduced to tears when listening to the accounts being related: children and teenagers unable to go to school; middle-aged men too anxious to face the world; and women unable to step out of their homes and engage with life for fear of ridicule.

A recurring theme was a lack of self-confidence and an inability to live up to expectations perceived or actual. These might be expectations constructed at school, where competition and conformity rule the classroom; within relationships where a list of qualities and attitudes are deemed to be required; and at work where the profit imperative rules, and those who maximise returns succeed.

Parents in Italy will now have to ensure that their children are vaccinated up to the age of six against a number of infectious diseases or face a ban from school, as the government approves a law following a drop-off in inoculations and a measles outbreak.

Untitled (79)The Italian cabinet has made it compulsory for parents to immunize children to be eligible to attend pre-school nurseries, with the number of required vaccinations rising from four to 12. Parents flouting the rule will face hefty fines, said to be up to 30 times the current ones of some 150-250 euros, according to local media, citing Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
Without vaccinations, there can be no entry into schools from ages 0-6, Gentiloni said, as cited by Italys ANSA news agency.

Doctor apologizes for harm she may have caused with vaccines "IndyWatch Feed World"

"I've ordered thousands of vaccines in my career as a physician. Until recently I had never considered vaccine injury as more than folklore. Weeks ago I never would've believed a story about vaccine injured triplets....so the past few weeks have been difficult. I have struggled to make sense of all that I have seen and learned. I met a mother of triplets the other weekend, a very attractive white woman with years added onto her face and her smile. She recalled to me the day her triplets were born. She and her then husband were ecstatic that she was able to carry them for 36 weeks. At the time, mom was so happy that they were inside of her long enough to mature, they were born perfectly healthy. I can totally relate since I am now twelve weeks post-partum. I had very similar worries carrying my little princess. Mom's eyes dropped though as I gave her a hearty smile of excitement. The same day that her triplets were given their six-month check-up and vaccines, was the same day that all three of her kids checked out. She said it was as if someone replaced her children with new ones. They unlearned all they knew...regressed and screamed for days. I stood there motionless and speechless. She didn't want my pity, nor my tears, she just wanted me to know.

How Come USSOCOM Grew Fond of Russias Weapons? "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

45234123123123Lately weve been witnessing an ever increasing number of reports featured by the international media sources about the ever increasing interest of the American military and special services figures towards Russias weapons and military equipment.

Over the years weve grown accustomed to the pictures of American pilots hurrying towards fighters that are similar in configuration to Russias Su-34, and that are wearing the recognizable sky-blue camouflage, which is pretty common in the Russian Air Force but has never been used in the United States.

As its been noted earlier, such occurrences is a pretty common practice if a state is trying to organize a false flag attack in a bid it on its competitor. As early as 1962, during the Caribbean crisis, Washington was also planning to use warplanes that would bear the colors of the Cuban Air Force to strike a number of civilian targets in an attempt to push the Cuban government under the bus, as it was revealed by the former US Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara in a documentary that goes under the name The Fog of War.

Today, those who are busy at work planning new military provocations are demanding American arms manufactures to build Russias weapons. For instance, its been reported that USSOCOM wants American companies to explore whether it is feasible to reverse engineer or reengineer and domestically produce the following foreign-like weapons: 7.6254R belt fed light machin...

Pedometer for Calorie Conscious Hamster Owners "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The Arduino has inspired many a creative projects that can be beneficial to humanity. The Arduino Hamster Wheel Pedometer by [John Mueller] on the other hand is a creation that is meant for the cute furry rodent pets. When [John Mueller]s daughter wanted to keep track of her hamsters night-time strolls, her maker-dad saw it as an opportunity to get her involved in technology. The project consists of a hamster-wheel with a magnet that triggers a reed switch on completing a revolution. The entire assembly is custom-made and [John Mueller] does an excellent job documenting the build with a lot of clear images.

The wheel is affixed to a shaft with a ball bearing at one end and the entire thing is mounted on the side of the cage so that it can be removed with ease for maintenance. The reed switch is embedded in the wooden mounting block such that the connecting cables pass from inside the assembly. This prevents the hamster from coming in contact with the cabling or damaging it in any way. An LCD and the Arduino Uno are placed outside the cage and are used to display the revolutions of the wheel as well as the equivalent miles travelled.

The code for the Arduino is also supplied for anyone who wants to replicate the project and the video below shows the working of the project. The project could also be extended to count calories burned as well as running speed. This project is a prime example of how technology can be used to assist and is similar to the IoT Hamster Wheels that tweets every movement of the Hamster Life.

Comey Is No Stranger to Explosive Testimony "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Nearly a decade to the day since James Comey delivered one of the most riveting testimonies in recent history, the nation is once again eagerly awaiting to hear from the recently fired FBI director.

Comey could testify on Capitol Hill as early as the upcoming week. While his name has been on front pages and leading newscasts for two weeks, the former FBI director has stayed out of the limelight so much so that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joked, Were gonna have to put him on a milk carton.

Lawmakers are eager to hear from Comey, especially about the circumstances of his firing and the contents of a memo in which he detailed a private conversation with President Donald Trump. According to news stories quoting people close to the former FBI director who had seen the notes, the president had asked Comey to drop the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Reportedly, the former FBI director began thoroughly documenting his encounters with the president after a handful of troubling conversations which led him to suspect Trump of trying to influence ongoing investigations into Flynn. The White House has since released a statement denying all allegations detailed in these stories.

However, now that former FBI director Robert Mueller has been appointed as special counsel for the Russia investigation, Comey might be limited in what he can divulge in open testimony.

This isnt the first time he has had to tiptoe around sensitive information while testifying, nor is Comey a stranger to conflict between The White House and the Department of Justice.

Ten years ago, on May 16, 2007, he found himself in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and shared an extraordinary story that is worth revisiting because it involves both Comey and Mueller. It is an account of the night in which top White House officials attempted to get a gravely ill John Ashcroft, who was attorney general at the time, to reauthorize a domestic surveillance program that DOJ opposed.

In his testimony, Comey gave a surprisingly vivid, unwavering account of the showdown in Ashcrofts hospital room.

After the hospital incident, the domestic surveillance program was reinstated without consent from the Department of Justice, and Comey threatened to resign. Although thats one card he cant play anymore, his testimony alone will play a vital role in shedding light on how Trump is handling the pressures and responsibilities of the White House.

The second video is an interview with Democratic Senator Chris Coons (DE) on Comeys memo and what it might mean for Trump.

Nigeria Govt Pays 2m Euros Ransom For Release Of 82 Chibok Girls-BBC "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

President Muhammadu Buhari addressing the released 82 Chibok school girls

President Muhammadu Buhari addressing the released 82 Chibok school girls


LAGOS MAY 20TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The release of the 82 girls came with a price.
Five senior Boko Haram militants were moved from a high security unit to be driven to freedom.
Paying a ransom as well as swapping prisoners was a sticking point that almost unravelled the whole deal, one source tells us.
It should have happened sooner, but the president was hesitating about freeing the five and especially about the money, says the person with detailed knowledge of the deal.
Persuading him was very, very difficult. It was the most difficult part of the whole negotiation. He didnt want to pay any money.
The ransom was two million euros. Boko Haram asked for euros. They chose the suspects and they gave us the list of girls who would be freed.
Governments rarely admit to paying a ransom, and this claim could not be independently verified.
Reaching that point took a lot of time and there were many setbacks, but trust was gradually built on both sides. The Nigerian armys surge of military success helped strengthen the governments hand.
Nigerian senator Sani Shehu has been a main instigator of talks with Boko Haram since the early days of the insurgency.
When Boko Harams founder Mohamed Yusuf was murdered in detention, Shehu arranged for his family to meet the former President Olusegun Obasanjo who was trying to broker peace.
He knew a human rights lawyer, Zanna Mustapha, who had grown up with some senior members of Boko Haram in Maiduguri.
Though he never joined the group he had represented them at trial and retained close contact with the leadership.
Zanna Mustapha agreed to join the negotiations, and was to become the key middleman in the release of the first 21 Chibok girls in October 2016, and then the second...

White Helmets: Blasphemous Whitewash of their Execution Black Record David Icke latest headlines

In a recent Singapore spin cycle article attempting to whitewash the blackened name of the NATO and Gulf-state-funded and Hollywood promoted White Helmets, James Le Mesurier, their UK ex-military trainer, likened the accusations of White Helmet operatives attending executions as Accusing the White Helmets of this act would be akin to accusing Joseph of Arimathea of crucifying Jesus. Joseph of Aramithea is claimed, in history, to be the disciple who prepared the body of Jesus Christ for burial. This cynical use of shocking blasphemy to cleanse the White Helmets of their multitude of sins, has backfired royally, as further footage of the saviours of all mankind cheering a brutal, extremist execution has appeared on social media. The White Helmets are seen, not only celebrating the grizzly murder but performing their usual mop-up by carting the bleeding body unceremoniously from the scene. Their later claims of giving the body a decent burial and affording the victim some dignity are rendered ridiculous when one views the video.

Turkey Steps Up Training of Syrian Opposition Forces "IndyWatch Feed War"

ISTANBUL Turkeys state-run news agency says the country has intensified its training of Syrian opposition fighters.

Anadolu Agency reported Saturday that Turkish special forces are training larger Free Syrian Army groups in the use of weapons including mortars, rocket launchers and machine guns, in terrain similar to where the fighters operate.

The agency quoted an unidentified military official saying, Its no longer the old FSA in the field but a new FSA being born. These FSA members in training will show their difference in possible future operations.

Anadolu said the training was stepped up after Turkey declared in March an end to the first phase of its cross-border operation with FSA against the Islamic State group and U.S.-backed Syrian Kurdish militants in northern Syria.

Julian Assange emerges on embassy balcony to say he will not 'forgive or forget' as Swedish rape investigation is dropped David Icke latest headlines

Julian Assange has said he will remain inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London in order to avoid extradition to the United States, despite being told he no longer faces a sex investigation by the Swedish authorities. The WikiLeaks founder hailed the decision to discontinue the seven-year case against him as an important victory, but said the proper war was just commencing, after the Metropolitan Police said he would still be arrested if he stepped outside. Assange, who has been holed up in the embassy since June 2012 is wanted by the British authorities after breaching bail conditions five years ago. Addressing a crowd from the embassys balcony in central London, Assange accused the UK authorities of ignoring international laws on asylum, a position he described as untenable.

Syrian rebels begin to leave the last opposition-held district of Homs city "IndyWatch Feed War"

HOMS, Syria/BEIRUT Syrian rebels began to leave the last opposition-held district of Homs city on Saturday under an evacuation deal that will see President Bashar al-Assads government take back the area, a Reuters witness, a monitor and state media said.

At least one bus carrying rebel fighters and their families left the al-Waer district earlier, and dozens more were expected to follow, bringing some 2,500 people out of the neighbourhood long besieged by government forces and their allies.

The evacuation of al-Waer district is one of the largest of its kind, after a series of similar deals in recent months brought many areas of western Syria long held by the opposition and besieged by government and allied forces back under Assads control.

The al-Waer agreement began to be implemented in March. By the time it is completed, up to 20,000 people will have left the district, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group says.

Many of the rebels are to head for insurgent-held Idlib province in Syrias northwest and to the town of Jarablus along the countrys northern border with Turkey, pro-Damascus media reported.

Some are to stay in al-Waer and hand over their weapons.

Donald Trump told Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting that firing former FBI Director James Comey eased pressure caused by an investigation into Russias influence in the 2016 campaign, the New York Times reports. I just fired the head of the FBI He was crazy, a real nut job, Mr Trump said, according to a document detailing the Russian visit. I faced great pressure because of Russia. Thats taken off. The President also reiterated that he was not personally under investigation. The document, which was read to the New York Times by sources in the White House, is the latest evidence that Mr Trump fired Mr Comey at least in part because of an ongoing investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian officials. He had previously admitted that the investigation was part of the reasoning for the decision.

US President Donald Trump is a danger to the world who must be removed from the White House before things get even worse, German news magazine Der Spiegel has argued. Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it, Klaus Brinkbumer wrote in an editorial published by the magazine on Friday. He doesnt read. He doesnt bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees, it added. Last month, a group of American psychiatrists warned that Trump has a dangerous mental illness and is unfit to lead the country. Read more: Trump is a danger to the world: Der Spiegel

Theresa May to create new internet that would be controlled and regulated by government David Icke latest headlines

Theresa May is planning to introduce huge regulations on the way the internet works, allowing the government to decide what is said online. Particular focus has been drawn to the end of the manifesto, which makes clear that the Tories want to introduce huge changes to the way the internet works. Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet, it states. We disagree. Senior Tories confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the phrasing indicates that the government intends to introduce huge restrictions on what people can post, share and publish online. The plans will allow Britain to become the global leader in the regulation of the use of personal data and the internet, the manifesto claims. It comes just soon after the Investigatory Powers Act came into law. That legislation allowed the government to force internet companies to keep records on their customers browsing histories, as well as giving ministers the power to break apps like WhatsApp so that messages can be read.

Virtual Private Servers : 5 Things to Look for When Taking Your Small Business Online "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Virtual Private Servers: 5 Things to Look for When Taking Your Small Business Online

Virtual Private Servers (VPS) have taken the small business world by storm. The advantages offered by VPS are considerable and can save any business a lot of money, but are more obvious in the small business community where a few thousand dollars can mean the difference between success and failure.

A VPS removes the need for your company to have its own physical servers. Access to a VPS gives your company the same advantages of having a physical server, but the operating system is run on the cloud. Anything that can be done on a physical server can be accomplished on a VPS without the expense of owning or leasing the physical equipment.

Virtual Private Servers: 5 Things to Look for When Taking Your Small Business Online

A small business that wants to save money on operating costs but has the need for a dedicated server can find a substantial number of companies on the internet that can fill their needs, but not all of these companies are created equal. Cost, security, performance benchmarks and other factors vary from company to company and there are tradeoffs for the customer to consider.

The primary factors to look for in a VPS include:

  • Cost

The bottom line for any company is cost versus performance. Taking your servers online is the same. There are various kinds of VPS services and some of them can be quite expensive, but offer more features that improve performance and security. Shopping around for a VPS and comparing different offerings will give you an idea of what the market bears.

  • Security

There have been several high-profile hacks over the last few years that have brought online security into focus. Although security should be a concern, reputable VPS companies maintain the highest level of online security and keep their servers updated. This could be more of a factor with the software you are running on it than a...

Italian government makes vaccinations mandatory for schoolchildren amid measles outbreak David Icke latest headlines

Parents in Italy will now have to ensure that their children are vaccinated up to the age of six against a number of infectious diseases or face a ban from school, as the government approves a law following a drop-off in inoculations and a measles outbreak. The Italian cabinet has made it compulsory for parents to immunize children to be eligible to attend pre-school nurseries, with the number of required vaccinations rising from four to 12. Parents flouting the rule will face hefty fines, said to be up to 30 times the current ones of some 150-250 euros, according to local media, citing Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. Without vaccinations, there can be no entry into schools from ages 0-6, Gentiloni said, as cited by Italys ANSA news agency. In addition to four already compulsory vaccinations, for polio, diphtheria, hepatitis B and whooping cough, the new law now also covers vaccination against measles and meningitis, diseases that have recently seen a dramatic spike in Italy, prompting the US to issue a travel warning for Italy.

So-called Lebanese Nationalists Mixing Leftism & Homosexuality "IndyWatch Feed World"

I dont even know where to start with this video. Im not sure if it was meant to be satire or a serious one because nothing adds up.

Heres what theyre saying briefly:
In the 21st century, Lebanon has been witnessing the rise of NGOs and organizations defending the rights of the LGBT community and it all started with articles in leftist papers, which is a clear proof that there are active marxist movements in Lebanon.

LGBT groups are a clear threat on the Lebanese state as theyve been supportive of illegal immigration in the West and exerted repeatedly pressure on media outlets. At this point, they quoted Obama (I Kid you not LOL!) then moved on to explain how these groups were responsible for cutting funds to the military and setting up disastrous economic for their countries. Here they were showing Germanys chancellor Angela Merkel (knowing that Germany is the largest national economy in Europe and the fourth-largest by nominal GDP in the world).

Then they moved to Lebanese parties and claimed there are at least two parties for every sect, and that they all work for their own interest, which is probably the only accurate information in this whole video LOL!

To sum things up, they argue that Lebanese Nationalism is the only way to make Lebanese great again.

I have no idea who these people are, but somehow they were able to mix leftism, marxism, homosexuality, illegal immigration and the military and they strongly believe that the only salvation is to rally behind a national identity and attack the gay community, the source of all evil in Lebanon (according to them).

Come to think it, theyre right. Why are we still drowning under garbage? Why havent we had elections for the past 9 years? Why dont we have 24/7 electricity? A shitty internet? Water shortage? traffic? ever-increasing pollution? armed militias? lawless areas? Why are we suffering from the Syrian crisis? Why do we have such a lousy infrastructure?

Its all because of homosexuals asking not to be submitted to a gay test and abused by the police. In their fight for equal and basic human rights, oppressed minorities have ruined the country, increased illegal immigration and destroyed the economy and the Lebanese Nationalists are here to save us from these devil-worshipping and immoral groups.

To be honest, its videos like this that make you laugh and cry at the same time. Promoting backwardness and intolerance while quoting President Obama, and mixing homosexuality, Marxism and leftism all in the name of nationalism. Id remove the video if I were them, unless they enjoy getting laughed at!

EU fatcats want BRITAIN to help fund their 166,000 gold-plated pensions for decades to come David Icke latest headlines

Brussels expects Britain to help fund its gold-plated 55 billion pension pot which gives the average EU official 59,000 for decades to come. The astonishing perks allow the most senior officials, such as presidents of the EUs institutions, to draw a maximum of 166,000 in yearly payments in retirement. The EUs 28 member states are currently lumbered with an astonishing 54.6 billion bill for pension and private health insurance payments. According to analysts, Brussels could demand between 4.4 billion and 5.7 billion from the UK for its pension pot during Brexit negotiations. Theresa May would face intense criticism if she agrees to foot the bill for lining the pockets of thousands including a string of Remain-supporting British peers.

Trading halted after 10% plunge in Brazil's stock market David Icke latest headlines

The Brazilian stock market index plummeted 10 percent shortly after opening on Thursday, the biggest drop since the 2008 financial crisis. Trading was halted for an hour. The decline washed 26 billion real ($7.7 billion) off the market values of Brazilian Banco Ita and petroleum giant Petrobras. Brazilian stocks and assets and their currency have rallied very strongly up until really today. Its a big pullback, and it at least brings the risk up to the surface again, said Alliance Bernstein Managing Director of Equity Product Management Eric Sprow, as quoted by Reuters. The Brazilian currency plunged eight percent to 3.38 against the US dollar, the reals lowest level in five months. At the same time, the yield on the countrys 10-year dollar bond swelled almost nearly 53 basis points to a two-month high of five percent. The sharp declines were reportedly triggered by fresh allegations of President Michel Temers involvement in the unfolding bribery scandal.

UK Government Moves Aggressively To Censor & Control The Internet "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

By Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog

The following dystopian excerpts come from todays UK Independent article titled, Theresa May to Create New Internet that Would Be Controlled and Regulated by Government:

Theresa May is planning to introduce huge regulations on the way the internet works, allowing the government to decide what is said online.
Particular focus has been drawn to the end of the manifesto, which makes clear that the Tories want to introduce huge changes to the way the internet works.
Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet, it states. We disagree.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Senior Tories confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the phrasing indicates that the government intends to introduce huge restrictions on what people can post, share and publish online.
The plans will allow Britain to become the global leader in the regulation of the use of personal data and the internet, the manifesto claims.

 

It comes just soon after the Investigatory Powers Act came into law. That legislation allowed the government to force internet companies to keep records on their customers browsing histories, as well as giving ministers the power to break apps like WhatsApp so that messages can be read.

The government now appears to be laun...

Climate Change is Turning Antarctica Green, Say Researchers "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In the past 50 years the quantity and rate of plant growth has shot up, says study, suggesting further warming could lead to rapid ecosystem changes.

Antarctica may conjure up an image of a pristine white landscape, but researchers say climate change is turning the continent green.

Scientists studying banks of moss in Antarctica have found that the quantity of moss, and the rate of plant growth, has shot up in the past 50 years, suggesting the continent may have a verdant future.

"Antarctica is not going to become entirely green, but it will become more green than it currently is," said Matt Amesbury, co-author of the research from the University of Exeter.

"This is linking into other processes that are happening on the Antarctic Peninsula at the moment, particularly things like glacier retreat which are freeing up new areas of ice-free land and the mosses particularly are very effective colonisers of those new areas," he added.

Venezuela furious after US sanctions eight judges to advance democracy David Icke latest headlines

The US has slapped sanctions on eight members of the Venezuelan Supreme Court, with President Donald Trump calling the situation in Venezuela a disgrace to humanity. The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry called the measure unacceptable. The Venezuelan people are suffering from a collapsing economy brought about by their governments mismanagement and corruption, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement. By imposing these targeted sanctions, the United States is supporting the Venezuelan people in their efforts to protect and advance democratic governance in their country. The Treasury said that those targeted are responsible for a number of judicial rulings in the past year that have usurped the authority of Venezuelas democratically-elected legislature, the National Assembly. The sanctions imposed by the US Treasury include the freeze of any assets that the judges may have in the US, barring them from entering the country, and prohibiting US citizens from doing business with them. The sanctioned Venezuelan officials will also have their names added to an official Office of Foreign Assets Control list, which also discourages foreign banks from doing business with those indicated.

The Shady Afghan Warlords Whom the US Pays to Fight the Taliban

Afghan Warlords (2009): Despite shady pasts, powerful warlords are given recognition from Washington in return for their support fighting drug traffickers and the Taliban. We take a look at Americas new pragmatic approach.

One such character is Gul Agha Sherzai, aka The Bulldozer and Governor of Nangarhar for the last five years. After striking a political deal with President Karzai, he became a power broker to be reckoned with.

Ruling from his Jalalabad palace, Sherzai shows off his power: The Taliban is no danger. I have defeated them. By Afghan standards, security in his region has drastically improved along with an impressive fall in drugs production. Its hard to argue that hes been anything but a success to enthuse US counter-narcotics officials. However, his past is less than pristine.

An expert on the region says: To be an effective leader there, at some point you had to have been involved in the commission of atrocities, together with the accumulation of enormous wealth and that means opium. Sherzai allegedly got wealthy during his time as governor of Kandahar taking a cut from the opium profits from the area. While his former associate has been serving a life sentence in the US, hes been enjoying a high-profile collaboration with Washington. Why? Theres a perception [...

Automation And Universal Basic Income: Are There Other Options? David Icke latest headlines

Everything from self-driving cars to more capable and prolific industrial robots in factories are threatening a growing list of human jobs. And with artificial intelligence findings itself applied across a growing list of specialized tasks, not only is menial labor being threatened and disrupted, but so are many white-collar jobs. A population facing the prospect of unemployment because their jobs have been permanently replaced by automation is a growing problem that requires an urgent solution. And many solutions have been proposed. Education programs are proposed to retrain workforces around the globe to tackle jobs that still require human labor. There is also the proposal of what is called universal basic income. It is described by Wikipedia as: a form of social security in which all citizens or residents of a country regularly receive an unconditional sum of money, either from a government or some other public institution, in addition to any income received from elsewhere.

Jon Robberson is a 16 year veteran of Hollywood feature film, television, and commercial production. He worked behind the scenes at all of the major studios and networks, having worked on projects for such notables as Spielberg, Bruckheimer, Silver and Abrams, to name a few. He also left that scene because he says it is rife with pedophilia. Dave Daubenmire, the host of the webcast Pass the Salt Live, interviewed Robberson this week. During the interview, the former insider spoke about an alleged global Satanic pedophile ring that controls Hollywood. Trust us, we know how this sounds. But hear it out.

IDF use rubber bullets & live ammo to quell Palestinian protests in West Bank and Gaza David Icke latest headlines

Dozens of people were injured after protests in support of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike turned violent Friday, with protesters igniting tires and hurling rocks at security forces, who responded with tear gas, grenades and life fire. The rallies that swept through West Bank and along the Gaza Strip border were held as part of the so-called Day of Rage protest action in support of the prisoners in Israeli jails, who have been on hunger strike against squalid conditions of their incarceration since April 17. In the West Bank city of Hebron, the protesters faced off with Israeli security forces, setting tires alight and pelting soldiers with stones. The IDF, in turn, fired rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades to break up the crowd. Dozens of Palestinians reportedly suffered from the effects of tear gas inhalation in the village of Beit Ummar in Hebron, where protesters attempted to burn down an Israeli flag, Palestinian Maan news agency reported, citing local activists.

Vast majority of Germans never want to give up cash, poll shows David Icke latest headlines

A recent survey concludes that Germany is far from getting on board with the dream of a cashless society not because it lacks the infrastructure, but because the people just wont let go of their beloved Bargeld. The frustration of cash-only shops in a country of far too few cash machines is one all too often documented by our reporters here at The Local. But even though the rest of the world seems to be moving closer to completely digital or card-based systems, it doesnt seem likely that Germany will catch up anytime soon, especially when looking at a troubling new survey. The report by bank ING-DiBa released earlier this month found that 84 percent of German respondents said they would never completely give up their use of cold hard cash.

Over 140 killed in Libya after militia allied with UN-backed govt ravages rival military base
Dozens of troops and civilians have reportedly been slaughtered in an attack on an airbase in southern Libya. The attack was blamed on the militia backing the Tripoli-based government of National Accord (GNA), which denies that it sanctioned the carnage.
.

The attack unfolded Thursday afternoon at Brak Al-Shati airbase, which since December has been under control of the Libyan National Army (LNA), rivaling the government in Tripoli. LNA, headed by General Khalifa Haftar, does not recognize the authority of the GNA and is linked to the rival House of Representatives (HoR), the countrys elected legislature, which operates from the city of Tobruk on Libyas eastern Mediterranean coast.

The so-called Third Force militia, hailing from the city of Misrata, which is loyal to the UN-backed government of Prime Minister Fayez Al Sarraj, launched an attack on the airbase as the LNA soldiers were returning from a military parade held there. The servicemen were not able to offer much resistance as they were unarmed, LNA spokesman Ahmad Al-Mimari said in a statement on Friday, as cited by AFP.

Most of them were executed, Al-Mimari said.

Misrata State Council member Begassem Igzeit called the killings an irresponsible and heinous crime against Libyans.

Indonesian governor asks president to let timber firms drain peat in his province "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The West Kalimantan governor wants to exempt timber firms in the Indonesian province from a national ban on peatland drainage, drawing the ire of green groups who say such a policy shift could spell the end of one of the Bornean orangutans last strongholds, the Sungai Putri rainforest. Governor Cornelis, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, outlined his request in a letter to the president dated Apr. 25 days after the Ministry of Environment and Forestry sanctioned a plantation firm for building an illegal drainage canal through Sungai Putri. Companies will lose confidence to invest in the forestry sector, Cornelis wrote to President Joko Widodo, popularly known as Jokowi. An exemption was needed, he argued, in order to maintain a conducive and comfortable investment climate. Jokowi introduced the ban in the wake of the devastating 2015 forest and land fires, which burned an area the size of Vermont and sickened half a million people. The countrys vast peat swamp zones have been widely drained and dried for agriculture, rendering them highly flammable and prone to emitting huge amounts of greenhouse gases. Reports of timber firm PT Mohairson Pawan Khatulistiwa (MPK)s activities in Sungai Putri, one of the last best coastal peat swamp forests on the island of Borneo, began to emerge last year. In March, the environment ministry visited the area; on Apr. 21, it ordered the company to stop operating and close the canal, which then stretched 8.1 kilometers long.

Members of the Third Force militia loyal to the UN-backed Government of National Accord in Tripoli on Thursday attacked the base used by Haftars self-proclaimed Libyan National Army (LNA), military sources said earlier.

LNA spokesman Ahmad al-Mesmari late Friday said the victims included civilians who worked at the Brak al-Shati airbase or were in the nearby area, also reporting that summary executions took place.

The soldiers were returning from a military parade. They werent armed. Most of them were executed, he said.

The GNA said in a statement late Friday a commission of inquiry had been set up to investigate the attack.

It said it had decided to suspend its defence minister, al-Mahdi al-Barghati, and the head of the Third Force from their duties until those responsible were identified.

Both the GNA and defence ministry earlier condemned the assault and said they had not ordered any such action.

The unity government, the rival administration in eastern Libya and their respective backers are battling for influence in the North African country which has been wracked by chaos since the fall of dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.

The LNA does not recognise the authority of the GNA, and instead supports the rival authorities based in the east.

IPTV Providers Counter Premier League Piracy Blocks "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In the UK, top tier football is handled by The Premier League and its broadcasting partners Sky and BT Sport. All are facing problems with Internet piracy.

In a nutshell, official subscriptions are far from cheap, so people are always on the lookout for more affordable alternatives. As a result, large numbers of fans are turning to piracy-enabled set-top boxes for their fix.

These devices, often running Kodi with third-party addons, not only provide free or cheap football streams but also enable fans to watch matches at 3pm on Saturdays, a time traditionally covered by the blackout.

To mitigate this threat, earlier this year the Premier League obtained a rather special High Court injunction.

While similar in its aims to earlier orders targeting torrent sites including The Pirate Bay, this injunction enables the Premier League to act quickly, forcing local ISPs such as Sky, BT, and Virgin to block football streams in real-time.

This will enable us to target the suppliers of illegal streams to IPTV boxes, and the internet, in a proportionate and precise manner, the Premier League said at the time.

Ever since the injunction was issued, TF has monitored for signs that it has been achieving its stated aim of stopping or at least reducing stream availability. Based on information obtained from several popular IPTV suppliers, after several weeks we have concluded that Premier League streams are still easy to find, with some conditions.

HD sources for games across all Sky channels are commonplace on paid services, with SD sources available for free. High-quality streams have been consistently available on Saturday afternoons for the sensitive 3pm kick-off, with little to no interference or signs of disruption.

Of course, the Internet is a very big place, so it is certainly possible that disruption has been experienced by users elsewhere. However, what we do know is that some IPTV providers have been working behind the scenes to keep their services going.

According to a low-level contact at one IPTV provider who demanded total anonymity, servers used by his company (he uses the term loosely) have seen their loads drop unexpectedly during match times, an indication that ISPs might be targeting their customers with blocks.

A re-seller for another well-known provider told TF that some intermittent disruption had been felt but that i...

Rare meteorological event creates cloud spectacle at Grand Canyon "IndyWatch Feed World"

A sea of clouds lap at the shore. Waves roil and dissipate while the tide comes in and then flows out. This isn't an ocean, though. It's the Grand Canyon in very rare form. On an average day the vast majority of days, actually air temperature gets cooler as you go higher in the atmosphere. Put very simply, the ground is warm and the sky is not. That's why clouds form in the sky. If moist air rises up from ground-level, it cools in the sky and the moisture condenses into clouds, much like the condensation on a cold glass of lemonade during a hot summer afternoon. Water vapour in the air condenses on the glass. In rare circumstances, the opposite happens cold air is at the ground and warm air is above it. The atmosphere flips over and all of a sudden the clouds are at your feet.

LAGOS MAY 20TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Police detectives in Enerhen, near Warri in Delta State have arrested a 26-year-old Keke rider (name withheld) during a routine stop and search operation and recovered two AK 47 guns in a bag in his tricycle.
Also, officers at the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Asaba, have arrested the General Overseer of a Pentecostal church (name withheld) for allegedly raping a housewife and duping members of his church to the tune of N160, 000.
Head of Enerhen Police Division, Hassan Galadima, who confirmed the arrest of the Keke rider to journalists yesterday in Asaba, while reacting to allegations of Police complicity in Warri and its environs, said the division has intensified efforts to cleanse the areas of all criminal activities to enable residents sleep with their two eyes closed.
Galadima disclosed that Police detectives also arrested a 23-year-old man (name withheld) last Monday with two locally-made single barred guns. He, however, called on the public to always provide the Police with useful information that could lead to the arrest of criminals in their hideouts, adding that security job is for everybody.
It was gathered that the suspects had been transferred to the Police headquarters in Asaba for further investigation, while three other suspected armed robbers shot by the Police escaped with bullet wounds.
The cleric allegedly hoodwinked the housewife into a prayer session and mid way took her into his office, where he had carnal knowledge of her amidst struggle.
He was also alleged to have ripped off members of his church, particularly the women, to the tune N160, 000 on the pretext of conducting healing for them.
It was further learnt that the pastor, instead of performing healing most times in his church, takes them, especially women, to hotels swimming pools, where he makes love advances to them.
But the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Zanna Ibrahim, who paraded the suspect yesterday, said the Police acted on a tip-off to arrest the pastor in his church around cable point when a female member reported how he had been harassing female sexually in his church.
He disclosed that the suspect, on interrogation, admitted having sex with many women since h...

Benghazi, Libya: A spokesman for east Libyan armed forces said on Friday that as many as 141 people had been killed a day earlier in an attack on a southern air base, and the head of Libyas United Nations-backed government suspended his defence minister pending an investigation into the incident.

The attack at Brak Al-Shati air base shattered a truce in the area, which in recent months had become a flashpoint between military alliances based in eastern and western Libya.

It risks a major escalation in a stop-start conflict between eastern-based factions and rivals loosely aligned with current and former governments in the capital, Tripoli.

Ahmed al-Mismari, a spokesman for the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA), said 103 of those killed in the attack at the air base were LNA troops, most of them from the 12th Brigade stationed there.

Kolkata: The Enforcement Directorate has issued fresh summons to Narada news CEO Mathew Samuel in its money laundering probe, initiated after a sting operation purportedly showed several TMC leaders, including MPs and ministers, taking money.

Samuel was first summoned by the central probe agency to depose on May 18 at its office here.

However, officials said, he informed the agency that he would not be able to appear in person due to some medical condition and requested them to question him at his present location in Kerala.

Hence, Samuel has been asked to meet the investigating officer (IO) of the case on May 24 at its office in Kochi in Kerala, the officials said.

The ED has asked him to carry along documents relating to his personal finances, those of the news channel and material related to the purported sting operation, they said.

Samuel is not an accused in the ED FIR, called the Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR), and the agency wants to quiz him to get information about the sting and circumstances in which it was carried out.

United Nations: North Koreas deputy United Nations envoy said on Friday it is ridiculous to link Pyongyang with the WannaCry ransomware cyber attack that started to sweep around the globe a week ago or the hacking of a UN expert monitoring sanctions violations.

WannaCry has infected more than 300,000 computers in 150 nations. It threatens to lock out victims who have not paid a ransom within one week of infection. French researchers said on Friday they had found a last-chance way to save encrypted files.

Le Charcutier Aoun is not Selling and will Remain 100% Lebanese "IndyWatch Feed World"

For the past three years, Ive been hearing rumors about Charcutier Aoun selling out to Al Futtaim but the deal never took place. Negotiations were apparently serious this year but the deal was cancelled and the Charcutier will stay 100% Lebanese.

Le Charcutier is one of the oldest and largest supermarket chains in Lebanon with 14 outlets. The deal, if completed, would probably be the largest acquisition agreement in the retail sector, and would have turned Charcutier into Carrefour supermarkets.

Im glad the owners are keeping it Lebanese. I dont see why they should sell, theyre doing great and from what I heard, theyre expanding and opening 3 new outlets very soon.

Can the T-14 Armata Main Battle Tank Possibly Match Its Hype? "IndyWatch Feed War"

by Sbastien Roblin. He holds a Masters Degree in Conflict Resolution from Georgetown University and served as a university instructor for the Peace Corps in China. He has also worked in education, editing, and refugee resettlement in France and the United States.

Few tanks have received as much attention in peacetime as the T-14 Armata. Russian state media has published hundreds of articles in its praise. Western media has reciprocated with pieces depicting the Armata as heralding the end of NATOs military superiority. And of course there have also been many pieces, such as this article on offiziere.ch by my colleague Joseph Trevithick, doubting that the Armata is nearly as good as Russia Today promises, and more pointedly, that Moscow can afford to produce more than a handful of them in the near term.

My dear next door townhouse neighbors are an Indian couple; the husband was raised in Zambia, Africa. His parents still live there. The other evening while having a neighborly chat off our respective back patios, he told me about the snowfall in Zambia. What? He said, Yes, it is true; I have a photograph. He had a photograph, which his family emailed, of Zambian children playing in the snow. What a thrill for those kids! I could not let that go by without having my readers see it to believe it, so I asked him to email the photo to me. Well, dear readers, here is the snow in Zambia in photographic proof!

What Is Li-Fi And How Does It Work: Another High Tech Feature For Concern? David Icke latest headlines

Li-Fi is the acronym for Light Fidelity. Its another wireless communication system running at very high speeds but based in light, not microwaves. Li-Fi uses LED (light emitting diodes) light bulbs to enable data transfer, another aspect of the surveillance world we live in? Li-Fi uses up to 224 gigabits per second, in essence using light bulbs as wireless routers. According to Tech World From IDG An LED lightbulb is a semi-conductor light source meaning that the constant current of electricity supplied to an LED lightbulb can be dipped and dimmed, up and down at extremely high speeds, without being visible to the human eye. For example, data is fed into an LED light bulb (with signal processing technology), it then sends data (embedded in its beam) at rapid speeds to the photo-detector (photodiode).

Israelis are rolling out the red carpet, literally.

 No automatic alt text available.
 At an unimaginable cost in time, effort and human resources, both the Americans and the Israelis are leaving no stone unturned for the visit on Monday of US President Donald Trump, who will be the first sitting President to visit the Western Wall in the old city of Jerusalem. Other US Presidents who visited the Wall did so before they were elected or after leaving office or both.

On Thursday, an American advance team visited Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Karem in case of an emergency situation that would require medical treatment for the president. They inspected the helicopter landing pad, the CT scanning facilities, and the operating theaters.

On Sunday, a dress rehearsal for the visit will be held at Ben Gurion Airport with the participation of representatives of the Prime Ministers Office, Foreign Ministry, Defense Ministry, IDF and the Airports Authority as well as the police.

Last week, members of the US Military Mess who will serve as Trumps personal chefs and valets arrived at the King David hotel to familiarize themselves with the kitchen and with the requirements of kashrut. There have been many changes at the hotel in order to accommodate the Americans something that Sheldon Ritz, director of operations at the hotel, termed controlled chaos.

The source disclosed that Okocha thereafter contacted Mrs. Regina Anyanwu, 59, who subsequently brought the buyers, Mrs. and Mr. Ike Nwata. Okocha confessed to investigators that she sold the baby for N850,000 but gave the mother N250,000.
It was further learnt that the buying couple, who were desperately in need of a child, organised a huge party to celebrate the babys arrival.Nwata was reported to have stayed away from her husbands residence on doctors advice while the search for a baby lasted.

By Tom Miles | GENEVA

GENEVA South Sudanese pro-government forces killed at least 114 civilians in and around Yei town from July 2016 to January 2017, the U.N. human rights office said in a report on Friday that the army dismissed as baseless.

The most recent round of fighting in oil-rich South Sudans civil war flared up last July when the Sudan Peoples Liberation Army (SPLA) loyal to President Salva Kiir chased his rival and former deputy Riek Machar and a small band of followers from the capital Juba southwest through Yei and into neighbouring Congo.

The SPLA also committed an unknown number of rapes and incidents of torture and looting, the U.N. said in the report.

Another 45 people were killed by the SPLA in attacks in other towns this April, the monitors of a failed ceasefire said in a separate report on Friday.

Attacks were committed with an alarming degree of brutality and, like elsewhere in the country, appeared to have an ethnic dimension, the U.N. said in the report, adding that the incidents may constitute war crimes or crimes against humanity.

These cases included attacks on funerals and indiscriminate shelling of civilians; cases of sexual viol...

Understanding Brits - A Post-Political Analysis David Icke latest headlines

Yesterday The Daily Telegraph published some statistics that suggest that Brits are just ordinary people, not much different from the Americans or the French they are born communists but die hard-core conservatives. The above data suggest that British youngsters overwhelmingly supportCorbyns dream. But this changes once they hit political puberty which is apparently around the age of 25. Adults seem to run away from Labour and Corbyn. Why are the Tories leading with each age group over 25? While youngsters are happy to share other peoples possessions, grownups are reluctant to share the little they have. People become more greedy and possessive of what they have managed to accumulate, however small, as they get older. This tendency is not a Britishsymptom, it is actually embedded in the human condition. There is also another reason behind Corbyn unpopularity amongst grownups. Adults understand that politicians promises mean little and they are always attached to a tax bill. Read more: Understanding Brits A Post-Political Analysis

Rhino owners cry foul after poaching gang suspects get bail

Grahamstown South Africas rhino security community has expressed outrage after a Grahamstown High Court judge granted bail to three of the countrys most notorious rhino poaching suspects, the Ndlovu Gang, effectively releasing them from police custody.

This despite strong arguments from the State that the trio posed an immediate flight risk and a continued threat to rhino.

A month after hearing the groups second bid for bail, in April, Judge JE Smith this week granted R15 000 bail each to Zimbabwean nationals Forget Ndlovu, 40, and Jabulani Ndlovu, 38 and man who claims to be a South African, Sikhumbuzo Ndlovu, 37.

News of the courts decision immediately reverberated throughout South Africas rhino community, drawing angry reactions from rhino owners and anti-poaching experts who have been involved at the coal-face in the battle against rhino poaching.

The Ndlovu Gang had been incarcerated since their arrest in June 2016, when stock-theft unit officers pounced on them at chalet # 8, at the Makana Resort outside Grahamstown.

Carbonated soft drink sales fell nearly 1% industry-wide in 2016, its 12th consecutive annual decline, according to the Beverage Marketing Corporation. For the first time ever, soda was supplanted by water as the largest beverage category in the U.S. With sugary drinks under attack from consumer advocates and the companys revenue declining, new CEO James Quincey has vowed to move Coca-Cola beyond soda and remake it into a total beverage company.

PNG Hunters demolish Ipwich Jets 32 - 12 "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

The SP PNG Hunters have demolished Ipswich Jets 32 - 12  in round 11 of the Intrust Super Cup match played this afternoon at North Ipswich  Reserve.

The Hunters displayed a clinical  dominance in the first half in attack and in defence.  On the 6th minute, co-captain, Wellington Albert with his trademark run, carried several players into the tryline to score the Hunters' first try . Boas converted the try  and the Hunters took the early lead 6 -  0 .  A penalty was awarded to the Hunters after the Jets were caught off-side. Boas extended the lead with a penalty shot to 8 - 0.

A poor handling error from the Jets gave another opportunity for the Hunters to attack. The visitors took the opportunity and sent Adex Wera for the second try of the afternoon. Boas found the uprights and took  the lead to 14 - 0. 

On the 33 minute, a set play from the Hunters saw Israel Eliab scored the Hunters  third try of the afternoon. Boas converted the try and the score was 20 nil at half-time. 

In the second half, the Jets regrouped and terrorized the Hunters defence.  Their efforts were rewarded with a try from Dane Philips on the 62nd minute. Wes Conlon added the extras to reduce the margin to 20 - 6 . In the next play, the Hunters could not stop the  enormous pressure  that  the homeside launched and conceded another try through Mitchel Carpenter on the 66 minute. Wes Conlon added the extras and the Jets were within reach with 20 - 12 with 14 minutes on the clock. 

A shy of relief in the Hunters team came about when Moses Meniga stopped an attacking player with solid hit that caused a drop ball. This changed the momentum of the game and the Hunters took possession and attacked the Jets defence.  Captain Boase stepped few players and scored  next to the uprights. He added the extras and took the lead to 26 - 12.   Winger Blend Abavu added the ice on the cake with a try on the 77th minute. Boas added the extras and the Hunters won  32 - 12 on full...

U.S. tax cut hopes sent state collections down in April "IndyWatch Feed Economics"


U.S. states collected less personal income tax revenue in April than they did a year earlier, a Reuters analysis shows, and analysts said they believed high earners were shifting income to next year, hoping for tax cuts from the federal government. State personal income tax (PIT) revenue dropped an average of 6.6 percent in April from the same month last year in the 27 states for which Reuters has data. Removing outliers Louisiana and Oregon, which had big gains due to technical factors, magnified the drop to 7.6 percent from last year. Taxes on wages and investment income are a top revenue source for the 43 states that collect it. April is the most important revenue month due to the tax filing deadline and the tendency of taxpayers who owe money to wait until the last minute to pay. "We believe the declines are mostly driven by the taxpayer behavior, particularly for non-witholding income," explained Lucy Dadayan, senior research scientist at the Rockefeller Institute of Government in Albany, New York. "The federal government has made it clear they are going to reduce the tax rates for income. Analyzing their rhetoric it appears this will happen, in particular, for higher income taxpayers. Therefore we think taxpayers are shifting income to 2017 from 2016" hoping for a tax cut, she said. Personal income taxes make up slightly more than a third of states' total general fund revenue, and sales taxes comprise roughly another third. Personal income tax collections have been volatile in recent years, including 2013's "April Surprise," which delivered unexpectedly high revenue to states as taxpayers sold investments to dodge an increase in federal taxes. Revenue from the tax plunged in April 2014, rebounded in 2015, and slumped last year. "April is a big month for state income taxes. A decline in February is not so bad, but a decline in April, fiscally, has more consequence," John Hicks, executive director of the National Association of State Budget Officers in Washington, DC. California collected $640.6 million this April, down 4.8 percent from April 2016. Controller Betty Yee called the decline a signal "we may be inching towards an economic downturn." April is usually the states biggest tax filing month, so lower-than-expected personal income tax receipts are troubling, Yee said in a statement. Lower revenue was also troubling in states struggling with budget gaps. In Oklahoma, collections were just $1.9 million below the previous April, but missed estimates by $84.7 million or 21.1 percent. Nebraska's receipts were down 13.1 percent from April 2016, but $55 million or 18.2 percent below estimates. Collections were down 12.6 percent in Connecticut, which was downgraded by all three major credit rating agencies this month due in part to a revenue slump.

DA forced to return $100,000 in cash to legal marijuana business 15 months after NO ONE was charged with a crime David Icke latest headlines

After a 15-month hard-fought legal battle, a family in San Diego will finally see the District Attorneys office return the $100,000 seized from them in a marijuana raid in January 2016. No criminal charges were ever filed after drug enforcement agents swooped down on Med-West Distribution, a Kearny Mesa company that supplied cannabis oil and other marijuana products to medical marijuana outlets. The agents initially seized $324,000 in cash, along with all the companys financial records and the inventory on hand. Though two employees were arrested, no charges were filed against them. The District Attorneys office took it a few steps further, when several days later they froze James Slatics bank account, along with those of his wife and two step-daughters. It was alleged that the money in those accounts was derived from illegal drugs, and a total of $100,000 was officially seized a few months later in June 2016.

India Approves 10 Locally-Designed Nuclear Reactors; China to Build 2 Reactors for Argentina "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

India has approved the construction of ten indigenously designed pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWR). India approved the construction of ten 700 MWe units in a significant decision to fast-track Indias domestic nuclear power program.

The Cabinets announcement did not give any timeline or locations for the new plants, but said the project would result in a significant augmentation of the countrys nuclear generation capacity.

India has 6780 MWe of installed nuclear capacity from 22 operational reactors with another 6700 MWe expected to come on stream over the next five years, the cabinet noted. It said the ten new units would be a fully homegrown initiative, with likely manufacturing orders to Indian industry of about INR 700 billion ($11 billion).

China is to supply Argentina with two nuclear power reactors one a Candu pressurised heavy water reactor (PHWR), the other a Hualong One pressurised water reactor (PWR). The contract was among 19 agreements signed yesterday in Beijing during a meeting of Chinese president Xi Jinping and Argentinean president Mauricio Macri.

Drugged-driving swab tests being used in fascist dictatorship known as California David Icke latest headlines

The myriad health benefits of marijuana are becoming increasingly well-known to the public, and this has resulted in more than half of U.S. states legalizing its medicinal use in recent years. Seven states and the District of Columbia have passed even broader laws, allowing both the medicinal and recreational use of cannabis. While those who are aware of the powerful healing properties of marijuana have rejoiced at this positive change, these laws have opened up a legal can of worms when it comes to determining whether a person who has used marijuana is fit to drive a vehicle.

U.S. President Donald Trump Meets With Saudi King Salman Arab-Islamic-American Summit on Fishting the Islamic State Terrorists Begins Tomorrow "IndyWatch Feed War"

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia President Donald Trump opened his first trip abroad since taking office, touching down Saturday in Saudi Arabia for a visit aimed at building stronger partnerships to combat terrorism in the region and moving past the controversies engulfing his young administration.

Trump flew to Riyadh overnight on Air Force One and was greeted by an elaborate welcoming ceremony at Riyadhs airport, punctuated by a military flyover and a handshake from Saudi King Salman. Trump is the only American president to make Saudi Arabia, or any majority Muslim country, his first stop overseas as president a scheduling choice designed in part to show respect to the region after months of harsh anti-Muslim campaign rhetoric.

The presidents stop in Saudi Arabia kicks off an ambitious international debut. After two days of meetings in Riyadh, Trump will travel to Israel, have an audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican, and meet with allies at a NATO summit in Brussels and the Group of 7 wealthy nations in Sicily.

As he arrived, the president waved from the doorway of Air Force One and then descended the steps, joined by First Lady Melania Trump. The 81-year-old King Salman, who used a cane for support, was brought to the steps of the plane on a golf cart. The two leaders exchanged pleasantries and Trump said it was a great honor to be there.

Birds of prey shows banned in Antwerp, Belgium "IndyWatch Feed World"

This video is called National Geographic Wild Birds of Prey (Raptors, Hawks, Falcons) Documentary.

On 19 May 2017, Dutch Vroege Vogels radio reported that Antwerp city in Belgium has banned shows with birds of prey and owls.

BirdLife in Flanders had campaigned for years against these shows. They agree with the ban, and say it should be extended to banning having owls or birds in prey in captivity. Having these birds in captivity is already illegal in some European countries, like Estonia, Sweden and Cyprus. Trade in owls and birds of prey is often connected to crime like stealing eggs or nestlings.

UIWIX, the Fileless Ransomware that leverages NSA EternalBlue Exploit to spread "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Security experts discovered a new ransomware family, dubbed UIWIX, that uses the NSA-linked EternalBlue exploit for distribution

The effects of the militarization of the cyberspace are dangerous and unpredictable. A malicious code developed by a government could create serious problems for the Internet users, the recent WannaCry massive attack demonstrates it that used the EternalBlue Exploit to spread.

Now a new ransomware, dubbed UIWIX, was discovered to be using the NSA-linked EternalBlue exploit for distribution.

UIWIX is a fileless malware discovered by experts at Heimdal security early this week while investigating on WannaCry.

Like the WannaCry, UIWIX exploits the same vulnerability in Windows SMB protocol, but the new threat has the ability to run in the memory of the infected system after the exploiting of the EternalBlue.

As we feared in yesterdays alert, another ransomware variant, known as Uiwix, has been spotted in the wild, exploiting the same vulnerability in Windows SMBv1 and SMBv2 as WannaCry used. Cyber criminals are quick to incorporate vulnerabilities, especially when they have the potential to infect a large number of targets like the EternalBlue exploit has. reads the analysis published by Heimdal Security.

Malware researchers at Trend Micro also investigated the UIWIX and confirmed that UIWIX is a stealthier threat that is hard to analyze, it doesnt write files on the infected machine and it is also able to detect the presence of a virtual machine (VM) or sandbox.

So how is UIWIX different? It appears to be fileless: UIWIX is executed in memory after exploiting EternalBlue. Fileless infections dont entail writing actual files/components to the computers disks, which greatly reduces its footprint and in turn makes detection trickier. wrote Trend Micro.

UIWIX is also stealthier, opting to terminate itself if it detects the presence of a virtual machine (VM) or sandbox. Based on UIWIXs code strings, it appears to have routines capable of gathering the infected systems browser login, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), email, and messe...

Corrupt Canadian Banking Practices "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

A recent photo in French daily Liberation hints at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerces role in facilitating tax avoidance, which is partly an outgrowth of Canadian banking prowess in the Caribbean and Ottawas role in shaping the regions unsavoury financial sector.

Just before the second round of the French presidential election documents were leaked purporting to show that Emmanuel Macron set up a company in a Caribbean tax haven. The president-elects firm is alleged to have had dealings with CIBC FirstCaribbean, a subsidiary of Canadas fifth biggest bank.

While Macron denies setting up an offshore firm and contests the veracity of the documents, this is immaterial to the broader point. If the documents are a fraudulent political attack, those responsible chose CIBC First Caribbean because it is a major player in the region and has been linked to various tax avoidance schemes.

CIBC registered 632 companies and private foundations in the tax haven of the Bahamas between 1990 and May 2016, according to documents released in the Panama Papers.

CIBC was named 1,347 times in a cache of leaked files concerning secret tax havens released by the Consortium of Investigative Journalists in 2013.

FirstCaribbean was implicated in the 2015 FIFA corruption scandal. To avoid an electronic trail of a $250,000 payment to former FIFA official Chuck Blazer, a representative of FirstCaribbean allegedly flew to New York to collect a cheque and deposit it in a Bahamas account.

In 2013 the US Internal Revenue Service sent FirstCaribbean a summons for information on some of its customers who may have been evading US income tax and the CIBC subsidiary was placed on an IRS list of financial institutions where taxpayers receive a harsher penalty if they are found to have undisclosed accounts.

CIBC is apparently popular with wealthy, well-placed Africans. Economist Thierry Godefroy and legal expert Pierre Lascoumes write that the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce is known as the bank of many African dignitaries while French Africa specialist Franois-Xavier Verschave called it the nefarious CIBC, favourite bank of African oil dictators. In 1997, for instance, the Toronto-based financial institution was the conduit of a $22 million trans...

Tories BOW to wealthy antiques dealers and DROP ban on elephant ivory in manifesto "IndyWatch Feed Politics.eu"

Foxes, badgers, robins and now ELEPHANTS: hidden manifesto plan by Tories to allow ivory trade

Under David Cameron the Conservatives had pledged along with other UK political parties to put into place a ban on ivory trading. This follows bans by China, the US and other important ivory trading countries to end domestic trades in ivory by the end of 2017.

But there is no mention of the ban in Theresa Mays Tory 2017 manifesto. Sneakily, the Tories have decided to DROP their previous commitment to introducing a total ban on ivory trade in Britain. This comes after heavy pressure from wealthy antiques traders who have been lobbying Teresa May hard to drop the ban on ivory.

The most powerful UK antique traders association is the British Antique Dealers Association whose president is Tory MP and pal of Theresa May, Lady Victoria Borwick.

California Senate votes to limit gifts to doctors from pharma companies David Icke latest headlines

The California Senate has passed a bill banning pharmaceutical companies from giving gifts to doctors. California doctors accepted $1.4 billion in gifts from the industry in 2014, the bills sponsor says. The legislation, Senate Bill 790, targets a common practice in the US that critics believe results in doctors ignoring generic drugs in favor of more high-dollar medications that drive up health care costs. The bill would specifically restrict companies from offering travel, consulting fees and other gifts to medical professionals. This bill is all about protecting patients, taxpayers and driving down the costs of prescription drugs, State Sen. Mike McGuire (D), the sponsor of the bill, said in a statement. Throughout the state, some of our largest hospitals and medical centers have realized the importance of limiting gifts from the pharma industry to doctors its time the state of California bans these types of gifts and incentives, which will put patients above profits.

Erekat told The Associated Press that he is encouraged by Trumps apparent determination. When asked about Trumps growing domestic difficulties, Erekat said he believes any deal on setting up a Palestinian state alongside Israel would win broad bipartisan support in the U.S.

Livni said in the session that Arab support for any deal is a game changer because it could sway Israeli public opinion. She says that in this context, Trumps meetings with Arab leaders in Saudi Arabia this weekend are very important.

Investigation Reveals That Walmart and Lowe's Have Direct Links to Slave Labour David Icke latest headlines

Products derived from timber extracted by workers living in conditions analogous to slave labor in Brazil are connected to a complex business network linked to the U.S. marketpossibly reaching the shelves of large retailers and being used in renovation of landmarks according to a new investigation conducted by Brazilian news outlet Reprter Brasil. After purchasing from suppliers held liable for that crime by the Brazilian government, local traders exported timber to companies like USFloors, which supplies the retail chain Lowes, as well as Timber Holdings, which supplied timber for construction projects at Central Park and Brooklyn Bridge in New York. The commercial network linking retailers to sawmill companies was identified by a three-month investigation and confirmed by the companies. The wood products were mixed at Brazilian intermediaries, so the investigation was unable to track the exact destination of each piece of wood. However, its findings reveal that large retail and construction groups are sourcing the product from companies whose supply chains are contaminated by the alleged use of criminal practices, with the conditions of workers rescued from sawmill sites aligning with slave labor practices as defined by Brazilian law.

Jim Roach never expected to be struggling with student debt in his 50s. When his daughter Lauren got accepted to Northwestern University, the Dallas-based serial entrepreneur and father of six was making too much money to qualify for certain kinds of loans. So he made the seemingly logical decision to take out a loan directly from the university. By the time Lauren graduated in 2006, the principal balance was down to $40,000steep but manageable.

Building a Replica Final Cartridge III "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The Commodore 64 was the computer of the 8-bit era, and remains the highest selling computer of all time. In addition to disk and tape drives, it also had a cartridge interface. A popular extension cartridge was the Final Cartridge III, which offered a variety of disk utilities and a GUI. [Greisi] was in possession of a no longer functional cartridge, and decided to reverse engineer the device.

[Greisi] started by desoldering all the ICs and mapping out a schematic for the board. The design centers around common parts for the era, such as a UV-erasable EPROM and some 74-series logic. [Greisi] decided to then modernise the design and make some improvements. Adding a fuse should avoid the cartridge catching on fire, and a bunch of decoupling capacitors on all the ICs should reduce noise. A FLASH chip is used instead of the old school UV-erasable part, which makes writing to the device much easier.

Its a great build performed in a stunningly tidy workshop, and [Greisi] has provided the schematics and PCB designs to the public here. That means that many more users can build their own Final Cartridge III without having to hunt for original hardware which is growing scarcer. You can learn more about the Final Cartridge III on Wikipedia.

Weve actually seen the Final Cartridge III before used in this blinkenwall installation. Video below the break.

Its hard to say whether or not Milwaukees failed Sheriff David Clarke is or is not the next assistant deputy secretary of Homeland Security, as reports are mixed. Clarke says he accepts the job while the White House says nothing is official. The one thing we know about Sheriff Clarke is that a man died of dehydration in one of his jails after being denied water for seven days while awaiting a psych evaluation. We also know that Clarke is probably a sham of a fraud of a charlatan of a person, as is virtually everyone connected to Donald Trump.

Jaipur: In the last three weeks, the Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) has sealed approximately 100 meat shops in the city. The closures are apparently because these shops had not renewed their licences but the owners have alleged that the JMC has not issued any licence renewals since 2016.

After spending decades working in the meat business, the owners are confused by the sudden crackdown. The licences for the year 2016-17 were not issued because a proposal for licence fee increment was under consideration, Kamlesh Meena, a senior veterinary officer at the JMC, told The Wire.

Meat shop licences issued by the JMC are valid only for one year. The renewal process takes almost the whole year. We start applying from April and get the renewal in February, just two months before its expiration. The licence should be renewed for at least five years, said Abdul Rauf Qureshi, president of the New Jaipur Meat Merchants Association.

News stories of the Ukraine omit any mention of the countrys Roma people, as though the global corporate media as well would exclude them from existence. The groups conditions of life show a severely oppressed people, which isnt news because the Roma are so deeply persecuted throughout Europe. According to the Joint Submission to the [UN] Human Rights Council at the 28th Session of the Universal Periodic Review, Ukrainian Roma often live isolated in settlements called tabor, and because of at-home births, birth certificates are lacking. This deprives the children of citizenship which is theirs under law but only gained through costly court procedures.

A 19-year old man from Samoa, accused of molesting a 12-year old girl, has reached a plea agreement with the government in American Samoa and will be sentenced in July this year.

Apelu Saito Lilo was charged in April last year with one count each of child molesting, rape, sexual assault, sodomy, deviate sexual assault, and first degree sexual abuse all felony charges.

United Nations: In just a few weeks, the UN is convening a world gathering to discuss the health of the worlds oceans and seas, with member states, government and nongovernmental organisations, corporations and members of the scientific community and academia signed up to take part.

Yet while representatives from the USs private sector and academic community even the state of California will be participating, so far it is not clear what role, if any, the US government, the UNs most important member, will take in the conference.

To be held June 5 to 9 at UN headquarters in New York City, the main objective of the conference is to support the implementation of sustainable development goal 14, which calls to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

The predecessor to the SDGs, as they are called, did not reference the ocean or seas in a single goal. The conference agenda is wide ranging, with panel discussions on financing the blue economy for small island developing nations to women and girls in science for ocean.

Trump Dropping the Hammer on Comey "IndyWatch Feed World"

Submitted to Operation Disclosure,

Information 'Beyond Excellent'! Make it go viral...Bob J

Dropping the Hammer on Comey... Brilliant!

There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance).

Dont believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey.

Dont believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump.

Dont believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good guy just trying to do his job in terrible circumstances and the timing was bad.

Dont believe the lie that Comey was admired and respected by career FBI investigators and agents.

Dont believe the lie that Trumps tweets" are not professional and have no strategic purpose. His tweets are weaponized and deadly.

James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.

Begin by noticing how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House staff to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance tapes from the seizure of Comeys office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trumps DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.

The swamp is on notice that the President is on to them, they are sweating bullets because their criminal games of corruption are being pursued and they know it. They are screaming and ranting because they are desperate denizens of the swamp who are beginning to realize they are roadkill.

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE COMEY SCAM. Taken from credible public sources (readily available if you want to look or want me to sent them to you), with a few reasonable fill in the...

Quack attack: Russian MP proposes up to five years in prison for killer wizards, folk healers David Icke latest headlines

A ruling-party lawmaker has drafted a bill targeting people who practice folk medicine and magic without proper state registration. Under the motion, such people could face up to five years in prison if their activities cause the loss of human life. The author of the bill is MP Vitaly Milonov of the United Russia party, known as a relentless defender of Orthodox Christian values and the main sponsor of the Russian law banning the promotion of non-traditional sexual relations to minors. This time, Milonov wants the Russian Criminal Code amended with a separate article ordering large fines or up to three years in prison for practicing occult and magic activities, as well as folk medicine, without a proper license from government bodies. The punishment could be increased to five years in prison when the illegal magic causes a loss of human life or especially-large material damage.

Sao Paulo/Brasilia: Brazils top court released plea-bargain testimony on Friday accusing President Michel Temer and his two predecessors of receiving millions of dollars in bribes, the most damaging development yet in a historic political corruption probe.

The testimony made public by the Supreme Court is from executives of the worlds largest meatpacking company, and raises serious doubts about whether Temer can maintain his grip on the presidency.

Leakers beware: Donald Trump has utterly defeated the disloyal coteries of the US intelligence community "IndyWatch Feed Tech"




Read this analysis.  Also understand that for the past four months, the Donald has unleashed investigators and has surely been organising cases against the whole political establishment we all know and love.  It is not possible that he has not done this.  

In the meantime he has been allowing the false news crowd to hang themselves.   What is been set up is the takedown of the Deep State alongside the Elite Pedophile conspiracy.  

Certain obvious actions have been ready but not triggered.  Low level pedophile arrests numbering hundreds have taken place simply because they had been held back by the previous administration and could proceed immediately.

Very shortly the shoe will drop.
