James Tracy: In Solidarity with Alex Jones: US News Media Targeted Professor for Questioning Sandy Hook While Failing To Do Theirs Fake News Indeed "IndyWatch Feed World"

James Tracy: In Solidarity with Alex Jones: US News Media Targeted Professor for Questioning Sandy Hook While Failing To Do Theirs Fake News Indeed

Mr. President,

I am a former Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). In early 2013, I became the target of a smear campaign led by prominent news media after I questioned coverage of the 14 December 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. The media called on FAU to fire me because of my concerns. I therefore appreciate your clear condemnation of the Mainstream Media (MSM) for fake news where those posing as journalists spread falsehoods and propaganda.

As a student of news narratives for nearly two decades, I observed several contradictions and anomalies in the medias presentation of the Sandy Hook event. Following the shooting, for example, emergency response protocols were abandoned and first responders were refused entry to school grounds. Authorities apprehended an alleged gunman but placed him in the front seat of a police car.

On 15 December 2012, the Connecticut State Coroner responsible for conducting the victims autopsies, H. Wayne Carver, M.D., joked and snickered about the childrens horrendous demise on national television. Astonishingly, he could not answer even the simplest forensic questions about their deaths.

Some independent researchers have suggested crisis actors or role players were posing in the events immediate aftermath as members of the victims families. Although hundreds of families had been affected by the school shootingwhere 469 allegedly required evacuation, according to the official report-only a select few repeatedly appeared in video interviews.

When I found evidence that the Obama administrations DHS had actually contracted with acting troupes for emergency exercises, including one called, Crisis Actor, my suspicions began to grow. The Newtown incident had occurred just a month after the reelection of a president who vowed to undermine the 2nd Amendment, whose administration carried out Operation Fast and Furious and who, in advance of his second inauguration, a month and two days later, signed 23 executive orders implementing various forms of gun control.

John Brennans Useful Idiocy For Stalinism and Sharia "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Dr. Andrew Boston:

Five years before the October, 1917 Bolshevik Revolution would begin to impose Communist totalitarianism on Russia, Henry C. Vedder, observed in his 1912 study of Socialism, that the Marxist Social Labor Federation of Britain had adopted Karl Marxs Das Kapital [Capital] as their infallible authority, an article of faith from which they will permit no dissent, on pain of excommunication. Vedder, a Professor of Church History at the Upland, Pennsylvania Crozer Theological Seminary, added that this British Marxist organization rejected the orthodoxy of its own votaries unless they professed as their creed, There is no God, and Karl Marx is his prophet  mirroring the Islamic declaration of faith, or shahada. The late doyen of Islamic studies, Bernard Lewis, underscored how this summation of the Communist creed captured the real affinity between totalitarian Communism, and Islam, in a 1954 essay.

Both groups [i.e., adherents of Islam or Communism] profess a totalitarian doctrine, with complete and final answers to all questions on heaven and earth; the answers are different in every respect, alike only in their finality and completeness, and in the contrast they offer with the eternal questioning of Western man. Both groups offer to their members and followers the agreeable sensation of belonging to a community of believers, who are always right, as against an outer world of unbelievers, who are always wrong. Both offer an exhilarating feeling of mission, of purpose, of being engaged in a collective adventure to accelerate the historically inevitable victory of the true faith over the infidel evil-doers. The traditional Islamic division of the world into the House of Islam and the House...

12 solutions to the UK housing crisis "IndyWatch Feed Politics.eu"


The opaquely funded hard-right think tank IEA has offered a 50,000 prize for an essay outlining a strategy for dealing with the housing crisis. I'm obviously not going to win it with this article given that they're stipulating that the proposal must be a right-wing market based strategy, which is lunacy given that the housing crisis has actually been caused by decades of right-wing market based housing policy. 

As far as I'm concerned a right-wing market based solution to a problem caused by right-wing "leave it to market forces" ideology meets Einstein's definition of insanity; doing the same things over and again, but expecting different results.

So I won't be winning the IEA prize, but the challenge did get me thinking about strategies to deal with the housing problem. Here are 12:


Stop the social housing fire sale

The first, and most obvious step is petting an end to the disastrous fire sale of social housing at way below market value under the Right to Buy scheme. 

The fact that 40% of Right to Buy former social housing properties have ended up in the hands of private landlords is compelling evidence that this scheme was never actually motivated by a desire to increase home ownership at all, but by an ideologically driven desire to ruin social housing provision.

I do believe that social h...

Immigrants Speak Out Against Cuomo, 2341 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This is a paid sponsorship by: Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN. Go to: https://www.virtualshield.com/billstill Good morning, Im still reporting on: Immigrants Speak Out Against Cuomo, 2341 Synopsis: The story you are about to see was the prevailing attitude towards immigrants coming into the United States - until just a few years ago. The essence of good immigration was to let people in who loved this country and the freedoms and opportunities in provided. That was back in the days before handouts were so plentiful, but immigrants back then didnt expect handouts. They just wanted a safe place where they could work in an honest system that allowed you to raise your family in safety and achieve all their dreams. There is no other nation ever created that allows this kind of class mobility in the history of the world. But the left has abused that notion, and now, leftist politicians race each other to bash the America that was, and instead of promoting safety and more freedom, they promise only the biggest handouts to the most people. This is suicide for the America built on an incentive-driven system. Support Our Sponsors: Nobel Gold. Go to Trumpcoin2020.com and use the code Coin to save $5 per coin, or text Coin to 511511.

Do The Republicans Have An Ace Up Their Sleeves For November? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Last week, Seor Trumpanzee schlepped his fat ass to upstate New York to campaign for Congresswomen Elise Stefanik (NY-21) and Claudia Tenney (NY-22). Stepfanik didn't want one of his raucus, hate-filled. red-meat rallies so they orchestrated a bill signing ceremony at Fort Drum. Trump managed to make a spectacle of himself anyway, signing the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act without mentioning John McCain's name.

Later he went down to Utica, to hold a high-dough fundraiser at the Doubletree Hotel for Tenney. He called her wing-wing Blue Dog opponent, Anthony Brindisi, "a puppet of Nancy Pelosi" and babbled one of his inauthentic, one-size-fits-all lines about how Tenney won't have a problem beating him. Outside the event there were about 100 racist Trump supporters screaming about illegals. They were out-numbers by protesters. Two days later Inside Elections changed the rating for Tenney from Tilt Republican to Toss Up. Nathan Gonzales also changed ratings for Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Mike Coffman (R-CO), Pete Roskam (R-IL), and John Faso (R-NY). He also changed the ratings for the open CA-49 race (Issa's seat) and for Barbara Comstock's race to Tilt Democratic from Toss Up. In all. he shifted 30 races away from Republicans and towards Democrats. He said the Republicans aren't facing a wave as much as raging fires. "Whether its GOP Members in Hillary Clinton districts, extraordinary Democratic challengers and fundraising, competitive open seats, or lazy incumbents," wrote Gonzales, "Republicans have dozens of fires around the country, and the party might not have enough resources to put them all out."

I'm not so sure about that "might not have enough resources to put them all out" resources. Conservative billionaires are ready to spend more money than on any midterm in history. According to a NY Times report yesterday, the GOP tax scam that is so unpopular with ordinary Americans is a...

Heute kommt hier dieser FAZ-Artikel rein, und ich wollte erst meinen Augen nicht trauen. So viel Falschdarstellung und Spin kennt man sonst eher von der taz. Es geht um den aktuellen Internetzensurvorsto. Ich zitiere mal:

Schon sehr frh machte die einzige Abgeordnete der Piraten-Partei, Julia Reda, Front gegen die Vorschlge. Sie nutzte fr ihre Kampagne sehr starke Verzerrungen und Vereinfachungen. Die Wortkombination Linksteuer, mit der Reda den Artikel 11 der Richtlinie bekmpfen wollte, ist zwar wunderbar kurz, aber allen Ernstes zu glauben, es gbe eine Steuer (die ja bekanntermaen die Finanzmter einholen) auf das Verlinken von Texten, hat etwas unfreiwillig Komisches.
Wow, mit so billiger Sophisterei kmpfen die? Da krieg ich ja fast ein bisschen Mitleid. Wenn das das beste "Argument" ist, was die haben, dann gute Nacht.
Nicht viel besser war der Kampfbegriff Upload-Filter gegen Artikel 13 der Richtlinie. Upload-Filter stehen nach wie vor nicht in der Vorlage, der Begriff eignet sich aber gut, um Angst zu schren. Es ist Julia Reda tatschlich gelungen, einigen ihrer Anhnger vorzumachen, dass knftig alles im Internet gefiltert wird, wenn die Richtlinie zum Urheberrecht so durchkommt und Memes ja, die geliebten Memes wrden smtlich verboten.

Dass in der Richtlinie etwas vllig anderes steht, interessiert nur am Rande. Ihr zufolge wren Plattformen (und nur diese) angehalten worden, fr User Uploaded Content, also von Nutzern hochgeladene Inhalte, Lizenzvereinbarungen mit den jeweiligen Rechteinhabern beziehungsweise Verwertungsgesellschaften zu schlieen.

Ihr seht schon, WAS GANZ ANDERES!!1! Nicht das GANZE Internet wre zensiert! Nur der Teil, bei dem man was hochladen kann!1!!

Diese Art von Artikel ist ja leider in der FAZ keine Seltenheit. Stellte sich nur noch die Frage, ob das im Politik- oder im Wirtschaftsteil lief, wo diese Art von Industrieabfall sonst verklappt wird. Und es stellt sich raus: Das kam im Feuilleton!

Wow. OK, das hat den Vorteil, dass es sich um einen Gastartikel handelt, und wir sehen knnen, wer sich so dermaen krass entbldet hat.

Na? Seid ihr bereit?

Will American Sanctions Bring Iran to Its Knees? "IndyWatch Feed War"

Arabic media review

Will American sanctions bring Iran to its knees? The Arab media debates the U.S. decision to impose harsh sanctions on Iran both pro (Saudia Arabia) and anti (Lebanon). Read what they are saying:

 

Long-Term Effects of Americas Sanctions on Iran Asharq al-Awsat (Saudi Arabia)

America most likely will not topple the Iranian regime in short-term, but the sanctions will definitely be felt in the long-term. Iran still has the economic partners of China and India. With these partners, Iran will be able to ride the wave of the sanctions in the short-term effect, but in the long term, the forecast is dark.

The Iranian people expected that the nuclear deal and its ensuing freeing of funds would help them economically, but that didnt happen, and the short-term economic relief provided by Irans partnerships with China and India will not be enough to answer local demands.

 

Irans New Plan to Confront America: No War and No Negotiations El-Nashra (Lebanon)

The U.S. has decided that striking Iran economically is a priority. Just like it is doing with Turkey, the U.S. finding that economic war is more effective than military war.

The Supreme Guide of Iran, Ali Khamenei, has put forth a clear picture of how Iran is dealing with the crisis. He has forbidden any Iranian official from negotiating with America saying, We dont want a war with America and we dont want to negotiate with the US. America has proven its lack of credibility in any negotiations, thats why it is forbidden for any Iranian official to negotiate with anyone on the American side. If we decide to negotiate one day, it definitely wont be with the current administration and not with the current terms that it has imposed.

The Iranian government expects that the impact o...

Forget Your Son: Brazil Is Forcibly Taking Indigenous Children and Putting Them Up for Adoption "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I practiced my greetings in Guarani several times before approaching lida Oliveira. lida, who doesnt speak Portuguese, had arrived that morning in the town of Amambai, in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, deep in Brazils agricultural heartland and less than an hours drive from Paraguay. She was accompanied by officials from Funai, the federal agency responsible for indigenous affairs in Brazil. lida had traveled there to explain how, three years earlier, local health agents and representatives of the municipal Guardianship Council in the city of Dourados, where she lives, had arrived to remove her newborn child from her custody.

The child, they took him when he was only 8 days old. She asks that you not take away her children again.

Two-hundred women listened in silence to lidas testimony, given in her native language Guarani, an indigenous language of central South America. A local named Wanda Kua Rendy had volunteered to translate lidas words to Portuguese for the authorities in attendance, but she was only able to get through a few sentences before bursting into tears. The child, they took him when he was only 8 days old, Rendy said. She asks that you not take away her children again.

lida smiled when I asked for an interview, but she was hesitant to allow her youngest child to leave her lap as we recorded. As a researcher, I had prepared to attend the sixth annual Kuangue Aty, a large gathering of women from the Kaiow and Guarani indigenous communities, to focus on the prayers and songs that marked the nights and days of the meeting, from the initial reception to the final debates. As an ethnographer or a reporter, however, I was compelled to pay attention to the issues afflicting the human beings involved. Why has the number of indigenous children in institutional care increased so much in the last year? I wondered. Janete Alegre, organizer of the Amambai meeting, asked, Is there now a law that says indigenous children must be taken from their indigenous families and given to the whites?

In the sprawling municipality of Dourados alone with a population of some 200,000 people in an area twice the size of Los Angeles 50 indigenous children were living in shelters at the end of 2017, according to a study by the Funai Regional Office. By July 2018, 34 remained separated from their families. I discovered the stories of lida and other mothers in Dourados are just the tip of the iceberg. Uncountable communities suffer from the complex problems associated with the state taking indigenous children from their families. There are indications of even more serious irregularities in the processes where the children are taken, which have been monitored since 2010 b...

New AP Iowa High Court Nullifies Horrible U.S. Supreme Court Fourth Amendment Precedent

A recent ruling by the Iowa Supreme Court effectively nullified bad U.S. Supreme Court precedent in the state. The decision was a win for privacy and demonstrates the how state-level action can undermine overreaching federal power.

the Iowa court refused to apply the SCOTUS loose interpretation of the Fourth Amendment to Article 1 Sec. 8 of the Iowa Constitution. Writing for the majority, Justice Brent Appel asserted that the Iowa court is the ultimate arbiter for the meaning of the Iowa Constitution, saying that the Iowa courts jealously reserve the right under our state constitutional provisions to reach results different from current United States Supreme Court precedent under parallel provisions.

Vatican completely SILENT on the shocking pedophilia, child rape and child abuse carried out by 300+ Catholic priests and staffers in America "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By 

 A prominent member of the Roman Catholic Church has come forward with some scathing words for Pope Francis, the man whom the Jesuits believe is a representative of Christ on earth, and who thus far refuses to address or even acknowledge the recent revelations about rampant pedophilia among priests in the state of Pennsylvania.

John Nolte, who writes for BreitbartThe Daily Wire, and various other news outlets is disgusted that Francis cant be bothered to take time away from his busy schedule preaching about global warming and climate change to even make mention of the hundreds of Catholic clergy who have now been outed for molesting, raping, and even ritualistically abusing thousands of young boys and girls over the past 70 years.

Where is the compassionate, accessible Wheelchair Pope, the Energizer Bunny Pope, the Cynicism-Busting Pope who has always been so eager to comment on every hot button issue, from Global Warming to immigration to homosexuality? asks Nolte in a recent editorial piece for Breitbart.

I know where Francis is not. He is not where he should be, in Pennsylvania overseeing a revolutionary and historic house cleaning of a satanic cancer that infects his Church, a 70-year-old cancer of priests and bishops and cardinals who are guilty of either engaging in an organized cabal to rape little boys and girls, or in covering up those unspeakable crimes.

NASA Wants You to Design Their Robot "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

No one loves a good competition more than Hackaday. We run enough to keep anyone busy. But if you have a little spare time after designing your one inch PCB, you might check out the competition to develop a robotic arm for NASAs Astrobee robot.

Some of the challenges are already closed, but there are quite a few still open for a few more months (despite the published closing date of and these look like great projects for a hacker. In particular, the software architecture and command, data, and power system are yet to start.

But dont let the $25,000 fool you. Thats spread out over a number of awards for the entire series. Each task has an award that ranges from $250 to $5,000. However, you also have to win that award, of course. If you register, however, you do get a sticker that has flown on the space station.

If you havent seen Astrobee, it is a flying robot made to assist astronauts and cosmonauts on the International Space Station. The robot is really a floating sensor platform that can do some autonomous tasks but can also act as a telepresence robot for flight controllers. You might enjoy the second video below if you havent seen Astrobee, before.

We covered the Astrobee before. If youd like to visit the space station yourself, it isnt quite telepresence, but Google can help you out.

750 U.S. communities have successfully built their own private internet networks to avoid big telecom monopoly "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The internet situation in the U.S. is becoming more desperate every single day. Between the seemingly unlimited rights of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to do pretty much anything they want with their customers to the unbelievable lack of choices in many locations and the horrendously slow service and after-sales support being offered to paying users, it doesnt look like things are going to improve any time soon.

However, there may be a silver lining in the cloud of terrible internet in the U.S., and it may be within reach for most municipalities if only they would take matters into their own hands. According to information presented by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), a non-profit organization that advocates for local economies, there are now more than 750 different communities located all over the country that have successfully installed their own broadband networks. This is according to a freshly updated map that they have made available online as part of their ongoing efforts to document local initiative to fight against abusive ISPs.

According to a report on the Institutes latest update, there are currently at least 55 different municipal networks that are up and running, serving more than 108 communities with their very own publicly owned fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) internet network. At the same time, there are at least 76 communities that are able to offer locally owned cable network access, and that there are also more than 258 communities currently being served by a rural electric cooperative.

In case youre wondering, the reason why these municipalities have begun to embrace alternatives to the standard methods of accessing cable and internet in their locations is that it is simply impractical not to do so. One recent Harvard study has shown that community bro...

In Case You Were Wondering About Our Omarosa Coverage "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Did you see our excellent story this week on Omarosa? No? Dont worry, you didnt miss it we didnt cover that shit.

So why did we spend our week writing about a brewing international crisis between two NATO powers that could threaten Europes (and therefore the worlds) financial stability, a humanitarian disaster nobody talks about, the 5-year anniversary of a shameful Supreme Court decision that has had a devastating impact on US democracy, a landmark climate change lawsuit, a computer hardware problem that could impact election security, and the future of conservatism without mentioning Omarosa once even though all other news outlets seemed to be tripping all over themselves to breathlessly cover her every move and President Donald Trumps reaction?

Here is a hint: We are a nonprofit news organization. Our primary goal is to provide you with information we believe you ought to know. Most of the others are for-profit news businesses. While they also want to provide you with information, their primary goal is to sell ads and make money.

That means we didnt cover Omarosa because we didnt have to.

Honestly, why would we? Its a stupid sideshow that distracts from the very real problems the country is facing. And if youre not convinced by now that President Donald Trump is a bit of a racist and likes to play footsie with white nationalists, then an allegation that he used the N-word wont change your mind....

One-track Broadcasting "IndyWatch Feed Europe"



This morning's Broadcasting House on Radio 4 was quite something.

It began: 
It's 9 o'clock. Hello. Good morning. This is Broadcasting House. I'm Paddy O'Connell. Here are the headlines: A campaign to force a public vote on the Brexit deal has been given a 1m boost....
Yes, the programme had made the People's Vote story its main headline. After reading out the headlines, Paddy said:
Ahead. Europe, past and present. 
Theresa May: The Article 50 process is now underway and in accordance with the wishes of the British people the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union.
Well hang on! The man who wrote Article 50 is here to talk deal, no deal or delay.
Hmm. Well, that's arch-Europhile Lord Kerr, someone who has publicly backed the People's Vote campaign.

I could guess where this was going, so my eyebrows were moving skywards even before Paddy mentioned who would be reviewing the papers later: 
On the newspaper review the Conservative peer Patience Wheatcroft, the film fan Gaylene Gould and the comedy writer Chris Neal. 
Yes, that's Baroness Wheatcroft, another leading figure in the People's Vote campaign! 

After the news, which, of course, featured the 1m donation People's Vote story, Paddy conducted two interviews on the Brexit issue.

LSST Could Help Find Easy-to-Reach "Mini-Moons" of Earth "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Astronomers want to find small asteroids near Earth that would be easy to reach (in terms of delta-v) targets for sample return missions. The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) could help find such objects:

The moon is not alone. Or at least theoretically it shouldn't be. Researchers believe that our planet is potentially orbited by lots of "mini-moons," little asteroids gripped by Earth's gravity that swing around the planet for a little while before burning up in our atmosphere or being flung back into the cosmos.

[...] [If] we could detect these bits of space debris when they enter our orbit, we could capture samples from the space rocks and bring them down to Earth to study, new research in the journal Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science [open, DOI: 10.3389/fspas.2018.00013] [DX] suggests. It would be faster, cheaper and more efficient than our big budget missions, including the current OSIRIS-REx sample and return mission to the asteroid Bennu and Japan's Hyabusa 2 mission to the asteroid Ryugu, which take millions of dollars and years of planning and zipping through space to accomplish.

"At present we don't fully understand what asteroids are made of," co-author Mikael Granvik, of Lule University of Technology, Sweden, and the University of Helsinki, Finland, says in a statement. "Missions typically return only tiny amounts of material to Earth. Meteorites provide an indirect way of analyzing asteroids, but Earth's atmosphere destroys weak materials when they pass through. Mini-moons are perfect targets for bringing back significant chunks of asteroid material, shielded by a spacecraft, which could then be studied in detail back on Earth."

According to the team, the LSST is a "dream instrument" for finding the fast-moving mini-moons because its massive mirror will be able to detect very faint objects and its field of view will allow it to survey the entire sky more than once a week, giving us a good heads up when a chunk of asteroid begins orbiting Earth. Once we find a few targets, the team suggests that we can begin using satellites to study them and shuttle the samples back to Earth.

Beijing orders banks to boost lending to exporters "IndyWatch Feed War"

Move comes ahead of critical week of trade talks as Chinese stocks and currency wilt
Image may contain: sky and outdoor

Bloomberg

Tom Mitchell in Beijing 


Chinas banking regulator has ordered banks to boost lending to infrastructure projects and exporters ahead of a crucial week for the countrys currency and stock markets.

Chinese trade negotiators led by Wang Shouwen, vice commerce minister, are due in Washington for two days of trade talks starting Wednesday, the first such discussions since the US imposed punitive tariffs on Chinese exports in early July for alleged intellectual property theft.

Since the tariffs were announced on July 6 the benchmark CSI 300, which tracks the biggest companies listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges, has fallen more than 15 per cent.

Pressure has also been building on the renminbi, which over the same period fell almost seven per cent against the dollar to a low of Rmb6.93 on August 15. The currency has since rebounded slightly as the Peoples Bank of China introduced measures to curtail investors ability to short the currency.

The recent falls in Chinas stock markets and currency reflect investor nervousness about slowing economic growth and the longer-term impact of the ongoing trade war between the worlds two largest economies.

The Chinese government has recently taken steps to boost flagging investment, but stopped short of introducing extraordinary stimulus measures as it continues a campaign to contain financial sector risk.

In a statement issued at the weekend, the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission urged the countrys banks, the vast majority of which are state-owned, to support infrastructure projects and companies facing temporary difficulties. The regulator added that financial institutions should effectively promote stable employment and stabilise foreign trade and investment.

The CSI 300 is at its lowest level since August 2016, after a series of government and central bank policy errors rocked the countrys stock markets and currency.

In 2015 and 2016 the Chinese governments problems were self-inflicted, said one investment strategist who asked not to be identified. This time the problems they face are driven by the domestic economic environment and trade friction, not policy mistakes.

So far only about ten per cent of Chinas annual exports to the US have been hit with punitive tariffs,...

Amateur stations in the Perseids recording "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In one of my latest posts I analysed the meteor scatter pings from GRAVES on a recording I did on August 11 (see that post for more details about the recording). The recording covered the frequency range from 142.5MHz to 146.5MHz and was 1 hour and 34 minutes long. Here I look at the Amateur stations that can be heard in the recording. Note that Amateur activity in meteor scatter communications increases considerably during large meteor showers, due to the higher probabilities of making contacts.

In my reporting I have spotted a total of four DX (distant) stations doing digital meteor scatter. All of them are using the old FSK441 mode instead of the newer MSK144. This is somehow a pity. MSK144 performs much better than FSK441, so it should completely replace it. In fact, the authors of WSJT-X have not implemented FSK441 in WSJT-X, as it is rather pointless. The old WSJT (now completely superseeded by WSJT-X) has to be used for FSK441.

I hear that in the USA MSK144 has become really popular, wiping out all FSK441 use. However, it seems that in Europe FSK441 is still the most popular mode for 2m meteor scatter by far. I wonder what can be done to increase MSK144 activity.

The timestamps I will give for the signals shown here are realtive, referring to the beginning of the recording (which was 08:56 UTC). The resolution of the waterfalls is 22Hz or 45ms per pixel.

At 00:01:05 we have a short 100ms ping from C37MS, a Belgian team that does meteor scatter from Andorra.

Trump blasts social media for silencing conservatives "IndyWatch Feed War"

President Trump accused social-media sites of bias against his political allies on Saturday, vowing not to let their policies stand.

Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices, he posted at 7:23 a.m. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we wont let that happen.

Prominent conservatives have complained for months that Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and other sites have been throttling their content and restricting access to their posts.

The most recent was Prager University, a right-leaning nonprofit that posts videos on economics and social issues.

Were being heavily censored on @Facebook, the group tweeted Friday. Our last 9 posts are reaching 0 of our 3 million followers. At least two videos were deleted last night for hate speech including one called Make Men Masculine Again.

.

Facebook reinstated the videos on Saturday and apologized, saying they were mistakenly removed.

Many Trump supporters have accused Twitter of shadowbanning in which their posts are allegedly suppressed in followers news feeds and their profiles hidden from readers who search for them.

Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel and conservative Reps. Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz suffered that treatment in July, Vice News reported  but Democrats didnt.

The companies have denied that they engage in viewpoint discrimination. Instead, they contend that their efforts to silence racist posts and other offensive content have had a spillover effect on mainstream conservatives.

As part of those efforts, Twitter on Tuesday issued a weeklong suspension against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, infamous for his claim that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax.

It appears that Trump isnt buying the explanation.

Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen, he tweeted Saturday. Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!

Erdogans possible remedies for Turkey crisis We need a credible program of fiscal consolidation and economic reform "IndyWatch Feed War"

The crash in the Turkish lira sparked by US sanctions has left President Recep Tayyip Erdogan facing the biggest economic challenge of his one-and-a-half decades in power.

There are some possible fixes, but Erdogan will have to swallow a very bitter pill. (Presidential Press Service via AP, Pool)

.
The lira has recently clawed back some of its losses, but economists say Turkey still urgently needs to address imbalances in its economy and avert a full-blown crisis.

.
The fragility of the currency was highlighted again on Friday when Standard and Poors and Moodys both downgraded Turkeys debt ratings within hours of each other.

.
The lira closed a volatile week of trading at just over six to the dollar, off the lows of over seven earlier in the week, but still sharply down from the start of the month, when it had been changing hands at under five to the dollar.

.
Economists say Turkey must act to prevent risks spreading to the European and even global economies.

.
Erdogan has a number of mechanisms at his disposal. But they could prove bitter pills for the Turkish strongman to swallow.

.
Even before the crisis broke, economists were urging Turkey to raise interest rates sharply to prop up the lira and rein in inflation.

.
But Erdogan who sees his overriding priority as boosting growth adamantly refuses, with economists worried that the nominally independent central bank is firmly under his control.

.
With its hands apparently tied when it comes to raising the headline borrowing rate, the central bank has provided banks with more liquidity, while also quietly using a mechanism that allows de-facto rate increases on a day-to-day basis.

.
William Jackson, economist at Capital Economics in London, said that while the sense of acute crisis had faded, policymakers only really seem to have done the minimum needed.

.
Financial markets are also skeptical about Erdogans ability to resolve the current crisis, especially after he named his son-in-law Berat Albayrak as finance minister last month.

.
Erdogans unorthodox beliefs have not helped, with the president repeatedly baffling markets by suggesting that low interest rates are needed to bring down inflation.

Moodys said Turkey lacked a clear and credible plan to deal with the challenges while S&P said the response from Ankara so far had been limited despite the mounting risks.

.

.

Chinese and U.S. negotiators are mapping out talks to try to end their trade standoff ahead of planned meetings between President Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping at multilateral summits in November, said officials in both nations.

The planning represents an effort on both sides to keep a deepening trade disputewhich already has involved tariffs on billions of dollars of goods and could target hundreds of billions of dollars morefrom torpedoing the U.S.-China relationship and shaking global markets.

Scheduled midlevel talks in Washington next week, which both sides announced on Thursday, will pave the way for November. A nine-member delegation from Beijing, led by Vice Commerce Minister Wang Shouwen, will meet with U.S. officials led by the Treasury undersecretary, David Malpass, on Aug. 22-23.

The negotiations are aimed at finding a way for both sides to address the trade disputes, the officials said, and could lead to more rounds of talks.

The talks represent a clear move by Beijing to get relations with Washington back on track that were cordial early in the Trump presidency and involved coordination to rein in North Korea. Those relations have soured, especially after Mr. Trumps initial tariffs on Chinese imports, which he said were designed to punish Beijing for alleged intellectual-property violations and technology theft. The resulting tit-for-tat of trade threats and retaliation has...

Refugee in California Suspected Murderer for ISIS "IndyWatch Feed War"

A man suspected of being a murderer for ISIS in Iraq was arrested in Sacramento, California by the FBI, reported The Daily Caller.

Omar Ameen, 45, has been in the U.S. since 2014 and faces extradition to Iraq for murdering an Iraqi policeman for ISIS.

The FBI began investigating Ameen in 2016 for fraud and misuse of visas. According to government documents, eight witnesses confirmed to the bureau that Ameen was a member of ISIS and al-Qaeda, and that the murder was on behalf of ISIS.

When applying for a visa and green card, Ameen hid his alleged terror memberships and actions.

Authorities also say that Ameens family facilitated the establishment of al-Qaeda in Iraq and, in addition to the murder, Ameen was responsible for planting explosives in Iraq.

Ameen left Iraq for Turkey in 2012 where he applied for refugee status in the U.S. Two years later, in June 2014, he was granted that status. The same month, prosecutors say he returned to Iraq and carried out the murder for ISIS. Five months later, he traveled to the U.S. and entered the country as a refugee.

According to government filings, Ameen said he worked in Salt Lake City as a truck loader and laborer beginning in January 2015. He then said he worked as an auto mechanic in Sacramento from February 2016 through February 2018.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats S02 E17 Shroud Lines "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

.S02 E05 truth or Dare not found

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

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

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

Parents selectively aborting children based on their gender We need to know the sex. If its a girl we are going to terminate it "IndyWatch Feed National"

 

Sonographs often used to determine sex of baby so the girls can be killed

It is a moment burned into the memory of a veteran sonographer.

A number of years ago, the sonographer was asked by a couple at their scan around 12 weeks to tell them the gender of their developing baby.

They said something along the lines of We need to know the sex, because if its a girl we are going to terminate it, they said.

You have to deal with things like terminal cancer and miscarriages when youre working as a sonographer. But this occasion, it still sickens me to this day.

Parents selectively aborting children based on their gender

New Australian research, revealed this month, has indicted that a group of parents could be aborting female babies because of a preference for sons. Its led to questions over whether it is necessary to provide parents with early information about the sex of their fetuses.

Already, many obstetricians and sonographers dont routinely provide gender information at the 12-week scan when people can still readily access abortion, largely because its not always accurate and there is rarely any medical purpose. Yet there is an unwillingness to follow in the path of China and India, where abortion of female foetuses is a well-identified problem, and there are bans on early gender reveals.

Advances in science and technology mean Australians are now able to find out the sex of their baby from as early as 10 weeks, via a blood test that also screens for chromosomal disorders such as Down syndrome. Others may find out their babys sex during an ultrasound around the 12-week mark.

While ultrasound providers have different protocols on whether they reveal the gender of the baby at the first scan, its the stance of the Australasian Sonographers Association that they should play no part in the debate around gender selection.

The associations chief executive, Jodie Long, said if the sonographer was confident in being able to identify the gender, then they would provide that information if asked.

What the parents do with information is not for the sonographer to determine, she said

Philippines Eyes Buying Russian Submarines: U.S. Urges Caution "IndyWatch Feed War"

The Russian Embassy in Manila fired back at its rival United States for warning the Philippines over its possible acquisition of submarines from them, saying it was an acute attack of colonial syndrome.

It is another testament that this sickness as well as propensity to lecture other countries and give unsolicited advice is still prevalent in Washington, the embassy said in a statement posted on its official Facebook page on Saturday afternoon.

Image may contain: 1 person, hat and closeup

Russia is being eyed as one of the potential suppliers of the countrys planned acquisition of submarines, along with South Korea, France, and Germany.

US Assistant Secretary of Defense for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs Randall Schriver told reporters Thursday that the Philippines should be very careful in buying Russian weapons and platforms for it may hurt the decades-long alliance of the two countries.

Buying major platforms was also about investing in relationships and at the same time it may affect the interoperability in ground operations with the long-time ally, he said.

While Russia admitted that interoperability of military equipment may be a problem, the US seemed to have exaggerated it, and instead dismissed it as a case of mental interoperability.

Such a problem does exist but its extent is exaggerated. Experience of other countries shows that this obstacle could be overcome, it said.

The matter that should be of grave concern is mental interoperability. The mentoring of Mr. Schriver is an example of this. The mental interoperability could be only achieved by letting go of outdated clichs, prejudices, and phobias, it added.

The embassy also shot back at Schrivers comments on the nature of Russian regime where he cited the annexing Crimea the chemical attack in UK as part of its laundry list.

It downplayed the claims as preposterous and groundless speculations and instead turned the tables to the US.

We would like Mr. Schriver to be more specific and also give us American laundry list, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya which have not turned out to be beacons of democracy but became a breeding ground for terrorism, it said.

Under the pretext of promoting democracy and protecting human rights countless horrendous crimes against humanity have been committed in those countries, it added.

It also advised the US not to interfere with its affairs with the Philippines.

The Russian Federation has never made comments on foreign relations of the Philippines. And we do not intend to do it in the future. At the same time we expect other countries to do likewise and to refrain from interfering into the relations of...

Washington Treats the EU as a Vassal State "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

TR65463523423

It seems that Donald Trump has no other approach to Brussels except from the one that is reminiscent of the way vassal states were treated back in Medieval days. One could even get an impression that the sole purpose of European existence is to satisfy the untamable avarice of American arms manufacturers and special interests. Within the last couple months the sitting US president has considerably toughened his stance on trade tariffs that European businesses are now to be subjected to. At this point its perfectly clear that in the race for global domination, Washington will deem no trick too dirty to be employed against friend and foe alike, introducing one package of harsh economic measures against various groups of its trading partners after another. Although those are sold to the general public under a bunch of various pretexts, the goal behind all of them remains the same to get an unfair advantage to ensure that no state can contest Washingtons unipolar vision.

The US is clearly in no mood to practice what it has been preaching for decades, as notions of globalization and fair trade have effectively been torpedoed by the Trump administration. It is true that its the first administration in the modern history that could no longer ignore the dire economic situation inside the US, but instead of being honest in describing the approach it will choose to address it, Trump erects trade barriers, increases import duties, declares a trade war against Americas leading trading partners China, the EU, Canada, Mexico, while strengthening sanctions against Russia and Iran. For the sake of protectionism the WTO rules have been shoved aside along with a decades old struggle for the liberalization of the international market. As for the possible consequences of this approach the sky is the limit.

Trump has been pretty vocal in demanding European states to increase their financial contributions to NATO, although theres no clear rationale behind it, as theres no immediate military threats that the EU can face in the foreseeable future, which has been confirmed by the recent revelation of NATOs Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, who openly admitted that he dont see any imminent threat against any NATO ally. It goes without saying that American rams manufacturers will be the only one to billions of dollars in profits from this shift, and the largest importers of American weapons, a...

The medias hatred of Trump is only hurting itself Contempt for the elected man becomes contempt for the voters and democracy itself "IndyWatch Feed War"

Media leaders refuse to see their destructive role in the war with the president

Remember when reporters wouldnt be allowed to cover any candidate they were obviously biased against?

***

This month marks the two-year anniversary of one of the most important articles ever written on journalism. On Aug. 7, 2016, after Donald Trump formally secured the Republican nomination and the general election was underway, New York Times media columnist James Rutenberg began with a question:

If youre a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nations worst racist and nationalistic tendencies, that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him?

By Michael Goodwin
Poinion

Under the Times traditional standards, the right answer is that you wouldnt be allowed to cover any candidate you were so biased against. But thats not the answer Rutenberg gave.

Instead, quoting an editor who called Hillary Clinton normal and Trump abnormal, Rutenberg suggested normal standards didnt apply. He admitted that balance has been on vacation since Trump began to campaign and ended by declaring that it is journalisms job to be true to the readers and viewers, and true to the facts, in a way that will stand up to historys judgment.

I wrote then that the article was a failed attempt to justify the lopsided anti-Trump coverage in the Times and other news organizations. It was indeed that and more, for it also served as a dog whistle for anti-Trump journalists, telling them it was acceptable to reveal their biases. After all, history would judge them.

Weeks later, Dean Baquet, the Times executive editor, told an interviewer the Rutenberg article nailed his thinking and convinced him that the struggle for fairness was over.

I think that Trump has ended that struggle, Baquet boasted. I think we now say stuff. We fact-check him. We write it more powerfully that its false.

Because the Times is the liberal medias bell cow, the floodgates were flung open to routinely call Trump a liar, a racist and a traitor. Standards of fairness were trashed as nearly every prominent news organization demonized Trump and effectively endorsed Clinton. This open partisans...

Water Usage for Horizontal Drilling & Fracking and Wastewater Volumes are Increasing "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Fracking consumes incredible amounts of water, toxic chemicals and speciality sand

Fracking industry water use rises as drill lengths increase Marcellus region shows smallest increase in water use but quadruples frack waste from 2011-16

From an Article by Jon Hurdle, State-Impact Penna., August 15, 2018

Water use for fracking by oil and gas operators in the Marcellus Shale region rose 20 percent between 2011 and 2016 as longer laterals were drilled to fracture more gas-bearing rock, even though the pace of well development slowed in response to low natural gas prices, a Duke University study said on Wednesday.

The rise was the smallest of any of the six U.S. regions studied, including the Permian Basin area of Texas, where water use surged by 770 percent over the period.

The study also said the volume of fracking waste water produced in the Marcellus which includes Pennsylvania, West Virginia, eastern Ohio and southern New York, where fracking is banned rose four-fold to 600,000 gallons in 2016, forcing energy companies to rely increasingly on holding the waste in underground injection wells.

But the Marcellus waste water increase was also significantly smaller than other regions, where it rose as high as 1,440 percent during the period, the report said.

Although fewer new wells were drilled during the period than in the early stages of the fracking boom, more water was needed because longer wells required the fracturing of more rock, said Andrew Kondash, the papers lead author. The median water use per Marcellus well rose to 7.4 million gallons in 2016 from 6.1 million gallons in 2011, Kondash said.

The peer-reviewed study, published in the journal Science Advances, shows the fracking industry is having an increasing impact on water resources after more than a decade of operation, said Avner Vengosh, professor of geochemistry and water quality at Dukes Nicholas School of the Environment.

We clearly see a steady annual increase in hydraulic fracturings water footprint, with 2014 and 2015 marking a turning point where water use and the generation of flowback and produced water began to increase at significantly higher rates, he said in a statement.

The PC-6/B2-H4 Project "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

For those of you who asked, the fly-away price of the PC-6/B2-H4 with all of the goodies is $2,043,620.00. Price of extended range fuel tanks is on top of that as are a few little extra luxury goodies. Delivery in the US ads a few dollars to the bottom line. 10% down for delivery in the first quarter of 2020.

The Garmin G950 Glass Cockpit IFR package is included with that amount, and from what I'm told, the weather radar downlink (via Iridium) is the way to go rather than onboard radar. But frankly, I remain unconvinced.

For the helpful souls who e-mailed me with the suggestion that I look hard at the PC-12, is's more than twice as expensive at $5 million. I have no problem with the Pilatus PC-12, but it's out of my price range.

Additional costs would include the construction of a new hanger at the Payson, AZ airport for storage of the Porter. I don't have to do that, but yes, I have to do that. I can land the PC-6 near the White Wolf Mine, but to keep it in perfect shape, and perfectly maintained, it needs a real home.

I have the price locked until August 28. I have not yet ordered the airplane. I'm waiting for money owed to be paid out. I'm too conservative. Go ahead, say it. It's true. I prefer the sure thing. I have deals pending and payments pending. Some are farther out, some are closer to the present. If you were to ask me what I do for a living, I'd have difficulty nailing it down to one particular thing. That's not at all like working for the government and I did that for most of my adult life. Now I know people in a very small world and use those relationships to make money for myself, my pathetic little company and for my friends. However if I have learned one thing, it is that you don't count the money until it's in your account, and overhead and taxes are accounted for fully.

Does that mean I'll get the order down for a PC-6 before they shut down the assembly line? I don't know.

How Paper Batteries Charged by Bacteria Could Power Internet of Things "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

By integrating bacteria into paper batteries, researchers create a cheap, sustainable way to power billions of sensors and devices

Suddenly, office paper is turning heads. Well, at least as far as electronics and batteries are concerned.

The explosive growth of miniaturized electronics and batteries to power everything from ingestible healthcare devices to sensors for intelligent transportation is driving innovation in how those devices are designed, and raising concerns over their environmental impact.

By some estimates, more than 50 billion electronic devices may be deployed during the next five years. Many will have a short working life, their fast obsolescence resulting in a disposal issue.

Papertronics offer electronics engineers the benefits of flexibility, sustainability, eco-friendliness, and low cost.

Enter papertronics, which offer electronics engineers the benefits of flexibility, sustainability, eco-friendliness, and low cost, as well as useful mechanical, dielectrical, and fluidic properties.

Seokheun Choi, associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the State University of New York at Binghampton, and his colleagues have created a paper-based, single-use battery that relies on bacteria both to generate an electric current and also to devour the battery at the end of its useful life.

In a paper published in the journal Advanced Sustainable Systems, the authors write that lithium-ion batteries and supercapacitors offer a high energy density, are light weight, and are capable of being integrated into flexible substrates. But they point out that Li-ion batteries also are made with nonbiodegradable and often toxic materials that often require energy-intensive and potentially environmentally damaging manufacturing processes.

Alternative energy harvesting techniques such as solar cells, nanogenerators, and thermoelectric generators contain large amounts of nonrenewable and nonbiodegradable heavy metals and polymers.

Good-old-fashioned office paper may offer a more sustainable option, Choi argues, once some sophisticated engineering is applied.

Innovative engineering techniques can be used to manipulate the diameter of papers cellulose fibers, smoothing out roughness and controlling transparency to enable a number of applications. Combining paper with organic, inorganic, and biological entities widens the range of engineering possibilities, and makes paper a viable platform for next-generation electronics.

It looks likely that there is at least one juror in the Paul Manafort trial who is annoying their peers. It's never a good sign when the jury asks the judge to provide a definition of reasonable doubt. Of course, the judge explained that the government doesn't have to remove any possible doubt, so that likely gave the other jurors the ammunition they were looking for.

Likewise, the judge answered their question on tax law by explaining that, yes, Paul Manafort had to fill out a FBAR form, so that shot down another possible objection to convicting him.

Still, there seems to be a holdout so a mistrial is a real possibility.

Georgia is Back to Jim Crow Tactics "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Its getting old detailing all the crappy ways that Republicans try to game elections rather than just going out and trying to win them. The latest comes from Georgia, where the game is to hold down black turnout by closing the polling places most convenient to black folks:

Civil rights advocates are objecting to a proposal to close about 75 percent of polling locations in a predominantly black south Georgia county.

The Randolph County elections board is scheduled to meet Thursday to discuss a proposal that would eliminate seven of nine polling locations in the county, according to the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia. Included in the proposed closures is Cuthbert Middle School where nearly 97 percent of voters are black.

There is strong evidence that this was done with intent to make it harder for African Americans, ACLU of Georgia attorney Sean Young said. The ACLU has sent a letter to the elections board demanding that the polling places remain open and has filed open records requests for information about the proposal to close the polling places.

This is the kind of stuff that the Voting Rights Act was supposed to prevent. A state like Georgia with a history of black disenfranchisement isnt supposed to be able to move around polling places without getting preclearance from the Department of Justice. But that all ended when the pre-Gorsuch, pre-Kavanaugh Roberts Court decided it was conservative enough to declare racism obsolete.

In 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court rolled back Voting Rights Act requirements that required many jurisdictions to receive permission before changing ways people are allowed to vote. They used to have to prove the voting changes werent discriminatory, but thats no longer the case.

This is an example of what localities are doing without the pre-clearance requirement, Andrea Young said.

In addition to statewide offices, Randolph County voters will also vote for state legislative seats in November. All nine polling locations were used during this years primary and Republican run-off, so it is unclear why the locations would be closed down, Andrea Young said.

Since the Democrats nominated a charismatic black woman as their gubernatorial candidate, the Good Old Boys are naturally tapping into their inner Lester Maddox.

But theyll just say that Lester Maddox was a Democrat and the Democrats are the real racists. And, in any case, would Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III really do anything to protect black voting rights even if he actually needed to mak...

Trump Rallies Are Spiritually Debased "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I get what Alex Wagner is trying to say, but I think shes off on several points. For starters, theres really nothing surprising or especially meaningful about the fact that you can find genuine joy at a Trump rally. Wagner points out that Trumpism is an invitation for people to unmask themselves, but theres an element of unmasking and discovery in many if not most mass gatherings. Ill give you three examples from my own life.

Back when I was on Dead Tour, Id routinely have people pull up alongside my car and give me a big smile or a double thumbs up. It often took me a moment to understand that theyd seen my Dead bumper sticker and assumed that Id be a friendly member of the tribe. The actual concerts were like this on a large scale, with people from all corners of the world converging for a common purpose and then creating a temporary micro-culture filled with extraordinary good will and its own transgressive set of rules and values. The music was the organizing event, but the ability to impose our will and overwhelm the cops for three days in this city and then three days in that city? That gave us a feeling of real solidarity and power that we lacked when we were back home and atomized across the country.

Another example was the memorial service for my close high school friend Bobby Sheehan, the bass player for Blues Traveler who passed away in 1999. The service was held in a large church in Brooklyn and the whole surrounding neighborhood became its own culture for about six hours that day. The occasion couldnt have been sadder or more tragic for the people involved, but it wasnt long before everyone was walking around with giant smiles on their faces, ecstatic to see old friends and genuinely elevated by the discovery that there were thousands of people sharing their grief. There was something transgressive about feeling so much happiness on such a properly somber occasion, but that didnt prevent it from happening on a wide scale.

The last example Ill provide is the Yearly Kos convention that was held in Las Vegas in 2006. Most of the conventioneers in that inaugural conference had only known each other previously by pseudonymous user names. We actually had both our user and real names on our badges, so we were doubly unmasking ourselves.

Two years earlier, we had been isolated, shouting impotently at our televisions. Now we were getting down to work to win Congress back from Denny Hastert and Tom DeLay and bring an end to the war.

My Faith is in Nemesis "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In my political writing, I very rarely find much use for my study of Ancient Greek language or philosophy, but lately Ive been thinking more and more about Nemesis, the goddess of indignation who exacted retribution for foul acts and brought down to size anyone enjoying an undeserved good fortune. Another culture might call this karma or just deserts. The Book of Proverbs says, Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. I think every culture knows the feeling that someone deserves a good comeuppance. Indignation is a universal emotion.

The Greeks had a word that we now use for prideful and haughty spirits: hubris. Those filled with hubris are arrogant, conceited, overconfident, and ultimately blind to the true human condition. The original use of the word hubris was related but different. Heres how Aristotle defined it:

To cause shame to the victim, not in order that anything may happen to you, nor because anything has happened to you, but merely for your own gratification. Hubris is not the requital of past injuries; this is revenge. As for the pleasure in hubris, its cause is this: men think that by ill-treating others they make their own superiority the greater.

In this sense, hubris wasnt a condition but a specific act (and criminal charge). It could be mocking a man after youve beaten him down. It could be sexually assaulting someone just to humiliate them. It could be giving a less powerful person a demeaning nickname and joking at their expense on Twitter. It really describes the pleasure a sadist gets out of being sadistic.

The antidote for this kind of bully is Nemesis.

But Nemesis...

Rolling the Dice on Ironstache "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

For the most part, Democratic voters have done a good job of weeding out candidates who might have difficulty winning a general election due to poor ideological fit or lack of credentials or problematic pasts or just plain kookiness. In Paul Ryans district last night, the Democratic primary voters took a big chance on working class hero and ironworker Randy Ironstache Bryce.

His opponent, teacher and Janesville School Board member Cathy Myers, argued throughout the campaign that Bryce would be unelectable. Near the end, she ran an attack ad that summarized her case:

Bryce became a viral video star, and a magnet for national small-donor progressive cash, after his dramatic launch video that played up his union laborer bona fides. Myers is now trying to sound an alarm, arguing that his checkered past will make him unelectable come November.

But Myers spot Contrast this isnt your usual attack ad, with sinister music and an ominous-sounding narrator. Instead, it nestles a vicious attack on Bryce around an uplifting ode to single motherhood.

The ad is narrated by a single mom with purple hair, who begins by saying, being a single mom is definitely a lot to juggle, but at the end of the day, seeing my kids succeed is very rewarding.

She shares her initial interest in Bryce, This election is really important to me. When I heard about Randy Bryce, I wanted to know more.

The ad offers a quick sample of the effusive national TV coverage Bryce has received, before shifting tone. But what I learned shocked me, says the mom.

The mom delivers the first blow. At the same time Randy Bryce was buying Twitter followers and giving over $8000 to his own political campaigns, he was failing to pay thousands of dollars in child support and old debts.

The next comes from TV news reports that dug up his arrest record, which includes an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol in 1998. One news report includes Bryces apology, as well as the first words we hear from Myers: The problem with that is that its going to be exploited by the Republicans.

The single mom returns to say: My family cannot afford to lose this election, and I cant vote for Randy when theres a candidate like Cathy Myers.

Ms. Myers was correct about the Republicans...

Pardoning Manafort Wouldnt Work "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Paul Waldman asks a straightforward question:

From the beginning, there has been a question hanging over Manaforts case: Why wont he flip? After all, other Trump aides have when faced with possible jail time, and Manafort is facing more than anyone. Theres a real possibility hell never see another day as a free man. One popular explanation is that hes afraid that if he tells everything he knows, some people in Russia would become displeased enough to kill him.

So Manafort may have decided that its better to take his chances with a jury than to find a strange substance smeared on his door handle one day.

If I were in Paul Manaforts shoes, Id have a reasonable amount of confidence that the government could successfully place me (and my wife) in a witness protection program, but Id have no confidence that this would protect my extended family. Are his adult daughters and their families going to also disappear off the grid? How about other family members, mistresses, or other people I care about? The truth is, as long as a nation state that is indistinguishable from a violent organized crime family is bent on punishing me, Im not going to feel like the people I care about are safe.

This may be the real reason Manafort wont talk. He still owes Oleg Derispaska somewhere around twenty million dollars and he has no prospect of repaying that debt in cash. All he can do is keep his mouth shut and hope thats enough to get some forgiveness on the debt.

Waldman thinks Trump will ultimately pardon Manafort, but only after the second trial which will cover his dealings with Ukrainians and Russians. The problem with this prediction is that Manafort needs charges hanging over him in order to invoke his right against self-incrimination. If hes pardoned for most of what he could conceivably be charged with, he could be compelled to tell the special counsel what he knows or face fresh charges of contempt and obstruction of justice. Is he really going to count on Mueller to give up or Trump to counter every new charge with a fresh pardon?

Maybe things really will get this weird and broken, but I think the reason Manafort hasnt already been preemptively pardoned is that it would not solve Trumps problems and probably would exacerbate them. Even for congressional Republicans, theres a limit to how nakedly Trump can obstruct the investigation and get away with it. He has not fired Jeff Sessions or Rod Rosenstein, for example, and hed run into similar problems if he started pardoning Manafort for refusing to cooperate with investigators when he faces no prospect of self-incrimination.

Add to this that Ma...

Paul Manafort's Defense Calls No Witnesses "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Ive been called for jury duty a few times but Ive always been rejected. Having never sat on a jury, I cant say for sure how I would feel about it if the defense decided to rest without calling any witnesses or having their client testify.  If the person is truly innocent, then why not try to demonstrate that in some way beyond simple cross-examination of government witnesses? I guess its much harder for me to accept not having a defense at all than it is to grant the accused the right not to speak in their own defense. I know that if I were falsely prosecuted that my lawyers would have trouble convincing me to remain silent, but theyd never get away with resting my case without making one at all.

But thats what Paul Manaforts lawyers did today.

Defense attorneys for Paul Manafort rested their case on Tuesday without calling any witnesses or having the former Trump campaign chairman testify in the trial where he is accused of bank and tax fraud.

At the same time, the judge overseeing the trial rejected Manaforts motion to throw out the 18 charges against him.

Manafort, who has watched silently as the case against him was argued in federal court, was asked by Judge T.S. Ellis whether he wanted to testify in his own defense.

No, sir, he replied.

Asked whether he was satisfied with the advice hed gotten from his attorneys, Manafort said, I am, your honor.

Ellis indicated that prosecutors and Manaforts lawyers would likely make closing arguments to the 12-person jury on Wednesday. After that, the jury will begin its deliberations behind closed doors.

Obviously, the defense will say that the government has not met the burden of proof and suggest that their case is so weak that it doesnt require rebuttal from expert witnesses. Maybe theres a juror who is unwilling to convict Manafort because he or she has been convinced its all part of an elaborate Deep State plot to nullify the 2016 election. That would result in a mistrial, which is almost certainly the best outcome Manafort can hope for. I believe the documents in this case speak for themselves and theres not really any ambiguity about Manaforts guilt. An outright acquittal seems like an impossibility.

Assuming Manafort is convicted, Im not sure much will change. Hes already in prison. He still faces even more severe charges in Washington DC where hell presumably have a less sympathetic judge and a tougher jury pool. Will a conviction in Virginia and the certainty of an extended prison sentence change Manaforts calculus and lead him to seek a cooperation deal?

United States CEOs getting richer "IndyWatch Feed World"

This video from the USA says about itself:

CEO Pay Is OBSCENE!

16 July 2018

CEOs get paid so much money that they cant afford to pay their workers more. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Francesca Fiorentini, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

By Matthew Taylor and Barry Grey in the USA:

CEO pay up 17 percent while US workers wages stagnate

18 August 2018

Average compensation for CEOs at the 350 largest companies in the US increased by 17.6 percent in 2017 over the previous year, soaring to $18.9 million. Workers wages, meanwhile, continued to stagnate, rising a paltry 0.3 percent.

These indices of the relentless growth of economic inequality are reported in a new study published Thursday by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), a Washington-based think tank.

The increase in US chief executive compensation brought the ratio of CEO to workers pay to 312-to-1. This means that the typical CEO of a large firm makes in a single day almost as much as the typical worker earns in an entire year. By contrast, the ratio in 1965 was 20-to-1.

The surge in CEO pay is largely driven by the record rise in stock prices, with corporate bosses benefiting from massive stock buybacks, increased dividend payouts and other forms of financial parasitism. The policy of the Federal Reserve and Democratic as well as Republican administrations over the past four decades has been calculated to drive up stock prices, enabling the stock market to serve as the primary mechanism for redistributing wealth from the working class to the corporate-financial elitethe top 5 percent income earners, and, particularly, the top 1 percent, 0.1 percent and 0.01 percent.

This redistribution of wealth was greatly accelerated under the Obama administration, which responded to the financial crash of 2008 by instituting a series of policies whose net result was the greatest transfer of wealth from the bottom layers of society to the top in history. These policies included the multitrillion-dollar bank bailout, near-zero...

Six Things About Opportunity's Recovery Efforts "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

NASA's Opportunity rover has been silent since June 10, when a planet-encircling dust storm cut off solar power for the nearly-15-year-old rover. Now that scientists think the global dust storm is "decaying"meaning more dust is falling out of the atmosphere than is being raised back into itskies might soon clear enough for the solar-powered rover to recharge and attempt to "phone home."

No one will know how the rover is doing until it speaks. But the team notes there's reason to be optimistic: They've performed several studies on the state of its batteries before the storm, and temperatures at its location. Because the batteries were in relatively good health before the storm, there's not likely to be too much degradation. And because dust storms tend to warm the environmentand the 2018 storm happened as Opportunity's location on Mars entered summerthe rover should have stayed warm enough to survive.

[...] When Opportunity experiences a problem, it can go into so-called "fault modes" where it automatically takes action to maintain its health. Engineers are preparing for three key fault modes if they do hear back from Opportunity.

Weaponized Fidget Spinners "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Fidget spinners were the hottest new craze at one point, but their 15 minutes of fame has well and truly passed. Theyre great for fidgeting, and not a whole lot else. One of the main objectives around their use is to spin them as quickly as possible. After [Sushi Ramen] hurt himself after spinning one up with compressed air, however a new and dangerous idea came to mind.

What youre looking at is a fidget spinner sword, powered by compressed air. That alone is somewhat of a blessing, as it prevents this horrifying device from being easily man-portable. Through a breakneck build montage, we see almost fifty fidget spinners (in hyperchrome, no less) mounted to a shaft. The shaft is then attached to a hilt and a plastic line is artfully bent up to deliver compressed air at the pull of a trigger, causing the fidget spinners to rotate at moderate speed.

Its true that the fidget spinners dont receive a whole lot of torque from the compressed air and thus most of the damage is done purely by swinging the presumably quite heavy device at fragile glass objects. That said, with nothing ventured, nothing is gained, and were always glad to see research and development continuing in the fidget spinner space.

Labels Have a Right to Be Angry About Piracy But it Probably Wont Help "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

If entertainment content can be viewed, heard, held or otherwise experienced by humans, it can be copied and shared too. This has been the position for decades and the situation wont be changing anytime soon.

These largely unauthorized acts of reproduction and distribution stoke the furnaces of what appear to be endless copyright wars. When DRM and similar measures cant prevent sharing, new legislation, increased liabilities, and more severe punishments are pursued by copyright holders. None of it seems to work.

With the majority of corporate-controlled entertainment media persistently supported by a chorus of anti-piracy rhetoric, its unsurprising that equally passionate pro-sharing views proliferate on the other side. However, there is an increasing middle ground occupied by pirates who are also content buyers. Indeed, pirates are now regularly cited as some of the entertainment industrys best customers (1,2).

Thats why its always difficult to see people trying to make an honest living from selling content yet getting frustrated and sidetracked by inevitable online piracy that could potentially be turned around into something more positive.

This week, a small storm blew up on Twitter following a tweet by Grim Darkthrone, the owner of Cult Of Osiris, a fledgling digital black metal label. Hed just discovered that his labels very first album release from Scandinavian band Uten Hp had been uploaded online.

So, the human scum at Metal Tracker have illegally put up a torrent of Uten Hp to download, he wrote on Twitter.

Ive sent them an email asking it be removed and they pay us the amount of revenue those downloads wouldve generated. If they dont reply, my solicitor will speak to them. Poor show.

While some might find themselves immediately offended by a) the piracy or b) the aggressive response, the chorus on Twitter erred towards educating Grim on the potential benefits of sharing.

Fluoride - Demand AARP Take Action "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Dr. Johnson,

You hit on several important topics and sound like an echo of David. . . or is it the other way?

You have failed to address over exposure.  Just because a little might be good, does not mean more is just as good or even safe.  Many are ingesting too much fluoride. 

You are correct about the aging process and more root caries, although my geriatric patients seldom have root caries, it is a problem, especially for those with poor diets.  

Here is the serious flaw in your theory.  Fluoride has some topical benefit like toothpaste, not systemic. Fluoridated water has too short of a contact time and too dilute to have topical benefit. There are no prospective randomized controlled trials, good science, supporting your theory for dilute short contact topical or "ingested" fluoride.  If 0.7 ppm fluoride concentration had topical benefit, makes no sense to give people 1,500 parts per million topical.  And if my memory is correct, drop down to below 500 ppm fluoride in toothpaste and the benefit drops off.  A significant topical benefit from fluoridated water makes no scientific sense and is not backed by research.

Christopher Halliwell: The Secret Murders Part 3 "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Christopher Halliwell: The Secret Murders Part 3

5.3. The other Northern and Midlands Cases

by Chris Clark & Tim Hicks

Introduction

The North Yorks Enquirer (NYE) has been running a series of articles on convicted serial killer Christopher Halliwell, to assess the wider range of crimes he may have committed in North Yorkshire and beyond.

Serial killers prefer to operate in areas they are familiar with and know their way around. It follows from this piece of human psychology that to assess other crimes committed by Halliwell, it is necessary to identify where he lived and was familiar with, and then compare his modus operandi to unsolved crimes committed in those areas. To illustrate the complexity of this task, please see here a similar investigation by former Sussex Police Detective Constable Mark Thomas-Williams, into serial killer Peter Tobin.

Halliwell lived in several addresses in Swindon, the Liverpool area and Northampton. He may also have stayed with his father in the Huddersfield and York areas.

  • Swindon is three-and-a-half hours drive to Grantham and about two hours twenty-minutes to Wolverhampton.
  • Liverpool is a half-hour drive to Manchester and two-and-a-half hours to Sheffield.
  • Northampton is one and a half hours drive to Grantham and about an hour and forty-five minutes to Wolverhampton.
  • York is an hour and twenty minutes drive to Sheffield, an hour and forty minutes to Manchester, three hours to Wolverhampton and two hours to Grantham.
  • Huddersfield is an hours drive to Manchester an hour and five minutes to Sheffield, two hours to Grantham and two and a half hours to Wolverhampton.

Halliwell had many jobs, including window cleaner, builder, ground worker, chauffeur, taxi-driver and bin man, his hobbies were narrow boating and fishing. These activities took him all over the country, giving him a good knowledge of many Northern and Midlands cities and the area around them. Consequently his geographic knowledge and area of operations was enormous; centered not just on Swindon, but along the canal network, at fishing spots and locations he worked at.

Adding to the complexity of this investigation, Halliwell was forensically aware. He changed cars regularly and destroyed forensic evidence whenever possible. He had also been a car thief and could steal cars to commit crime if he wished. The authors believe that he deliberately varied his modus operandi and abducted victims in one force area, then depositing the body in another. Thereby complicating the police investigation and making it more difficult for police intelligence analysts to link his crimes.

The authors have analysed Halliwel...

Londons Met Police facial recognition trial proves to be a farce "IndyWatch Feed National"

THE METROPOLITAN POLICES controversial facial recognition trial has proved fruitless, with the force revealing it has resulted in no arrests.

The equipment was positioned on a prominent pedestrian bridge in a bid to identify criminals using autonomous technology.

Critics asked the Met not to use it and cited human rights laws, believing the use of facial recognition systems constituted an invasion of privacy. But the police went on using the system regardless.

However, it didnt prove to be a particularly useful crime-ghting tool, as Scotland Yard noted the system didnt contribute to a single arrest, although it remained tight-lipped on how many people were agged for questioning.

This deployment formed an important part of ongoing trials and a full review of its use will take place once they have been completed, explained Detective Superintendent Bernie Galopin.

It is important to note all the faces on the watch list used during the deployment were of people wanted by the Met and the courts for violence-related offences."

If the technology generated an alert to signal a match, police ocers on the ground reviewed the alert and carried out further checks to conrm the identity of the individual. All alerts against the watchlist will be deleted after 30 days and faces in the database that did not generate an alert were deleted immediately.

Scotland Yard said the Stratford operation would be overt, with police informing passers-by of the  cameras presence, both audibly and with leaets. But that would require busy Londoners to actually notice the signs.

Meanwhile privacy activists, including the advocacy group Liberty, have denounced the scheme, with some dubbing it staggeringly inaccurate.

Its not hard to see why activists are so vehemently opposed. In May, it was found that a shocking 98% of the Mets facial recognition technology was inaccurate. Not only would this serve to embroil innocent people in criminal cases, but it could lead police to prematurely relinquish dangerous suspects.

Even when the false positives are omitted from the system, the ethical dilemma endures.

Israel closes people crossing with Gaza After firebombs and IEDs hurled at the border fence, Israel says "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

 

Israel closed its only crossing for people with the Gaza Strip on Sunday except for humanitarian cases over border incidents that saw protests and clashes at the weekend, an Israeli official said.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli defence ministry unit that oversees the passage confirmed that the Erez crossing had been closed.

Border protests and clashes on Friday left two Palestinians dead by Israeli gunfire.

Israels army said firebombs and IEDs were also hurled at the border fence, while a number of Palestinians briefly crossed into Israeli territory.

The closure and border incidents occurred despite attempts by Egypt and UN officials to reach a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the blockaded Gaza Strip.

The spokeswoman for the defence ministry unit, known as COGAT, did not say how long the crossing would be closed.

The Palestinian Authority civilian affairs office in Gaza also confirmed the closure except for medical cases and Palestinians seeking to cross back into the enclave.

Israel has enforced an air, land and sea blockade on the Gaza Strip for more than a decade, but grants permission to a limited number of people to cross for various reasons.

Israel had just last week reopened its only goods crossing with Gaza after closing it to most deliveries for more than a month over border tensions.

Protests and clashes began on the Gaza border on March 30 and have continued at varying levels since then.

At least 171 Gazans have been killed by Israeli fire during that time. One Israeli soldier was shot dead by a Palestinian sniper in July.

There have also been several severe military flare-ups, including three since July.

UN officials and Egypt have been seeking to secure a long-term truce between Hamas and Israel to allow for humanitarian issues in the impoverished enclave of two million people to be addressed.

Israel is demanding calm and a return of the remains of two soldiers Hamas is believed to be holding.

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since 2008.

On the Deep State an audio essay in seven parts "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Is there a Deep State in our western liberal democracies? If so, is it a conspiracy or something more interesting than that? These are questions that the Left has been traditionally engaged with, especially when facing undercover campaigns to prevent progressives from winning power or, on occasion, to unseat or destabilise left-wing governments. However, more recently, the Alt-Right has begun waging a war of words against the Deep State, with Donald Trump and his supporters doing so most boisterously. Is this a figment of the imagination on those on the extremities of the political spectrum (left and right), as this BBC Radio 4 program ends up concluding? Or is the Deep State something real, tangible a clear and present danger for democracy? In this audio essay I argue that the Deep State is inevitable in contemporary, corporate, financialised capitalism and constitutes democracys greatest foe.

After exploring the space between markets and formal state institutions in which the Deep State lives as a Private-Public Technocracy, I outline the four manufacturing processes that constitute it:

  1. Manufacturing prices (i.e. subverting the very market mechanism that capitalism is supposed to rely on)
  2. Manufacturing desires
  3. Manufacturing money (e.g. the black magic by which central and private banks conjure up the supply of money)
  4. Manufacturing consent

Touching upon the great misconception of the establishments liberal individualist political philosophy regarding the limits of the state (and what it means to be an autonomous individual), I define the Deep State as a conspiracy without conspirators, as a grand design without a designer (i.e. not too dissimilar to the manner in which Darwinian evolution produces complex systems without a grand designer, or how according to Adam Smith a market regulates supply and demand without any human actually regulating them).

Finally, I return to the 1920s and 1930s, in order to highlight the manner in which Donald Trump and the new Nationalist-Fascist International is copying Goebbels and Mussolini in attacking the Deep State only in order to take it over and use it against those whose votes and attention they seek to appropriate.

Lastly, I put forward a radical idea of what to do about the Deep StateP: Nothing! Progressives must simply fight for democracy, reason and humanism and, as long as we manage to unite across countries and to break down antiquated party-political divisions, the Deep State will recede.

Irans defense minister said Saturday that the Islamic Republic is set to unveil a new fighter jet next week and, despite new US sanctions, will continue developing its missile program.

Our top priority has been development of our missile program. We are in a good position in this field, but we need to develop it, Brigadier General Amir Hatami was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency, according to Reuters.

We will present a plane on National Defense Industry Day, and people will see it fly, and the equipment designed for it, he added, referring to the August 22 celebrations.

Hatami is believed to have been referring to the Qaher F-313 fighter plane which Tehran said it had began testing last year.

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


by Noah

Valerie Plame knows treachery and treason. She experienced it first hand at the grubby little paws of Scooter Libby and his boss Dick Cheney (and other Bush staff) when they deliberately betrayed her cover as one of our agents. Libby took the fall. Cheney still roams free, unpunished for this and other crimes. We will probably never know how many or Plame's pro-American contacts and informants died because of the betrayal. It's the stuff of spy novels, except that it happened in the real world.

To top it off, Fake President Trump pardoned Scooter Libby almost as soon as he could. Perhaps in his mind he thought he was setting a precedent of pardoning people for treason. Perhaps he thought putting the idea of pardons for treason out there would come in handy at some rapidly approaching future date. Maybe he wants to sell hats that say "Pardons For Treason" or the pardons themselves. He could open up a Trump Pardon Booth in the Rose Garden. Looks like there could be quite a line, a line that would, if we had a real justice system, extend at least all the way to the Capitol Building.

Valerie Plame has seen a lot. She knows Nixon and Reagan never faced trial for their treason, blatant screaming treason performed just in the service of getting elected in the first place. So, it's unlikely that Trump needed a treason pardon precedent for himself, although in his obviously demented brain, who knows what he was thinking, if thinking is even a concept in the mind of Trump at this point. As evidenced by his tweets and other public statements, it's more of a reptilian just react kind of thing with him.

Two major credit rating agencies downgrade Turkey "IndyWatch Feed War"

S&P had already rated Turkeys bonds as junk, Moodys downgrades Turkey to Ba3, assigns negative outlook

Action comes as stand-off with Washington continues over detention of American pastor

No automatic alt text available.

By Katrina Manson in Washington and Jessica Dye and Robin Wigglesworth in New York

Two major credit rating agencies downgraded Turkey on Friday, adding to concerns over the countrys financial crisis as Ankara and Washington remained locked in a stand-off over the Turkish detention of an American pastor.

Relations between the two Nato allies have deteriorated sharply since a carefully sequenced deal to secure the release of evangelical preacher Andrew Brunson, who was detained by Turkish authorities in 2016, fell apart last month.

US President Donald Trump might be prepared to revive the deal but only if Mr Brunson were released first, people familiar with the matter said.

Turkeys external funding needs remain significant, and the risk of a balance of payments crisis continues to rise

Under that deal, Mehmet Hakan Atilla, a Turkish banker jailed for violating US sanctions against Iran, would be returned to Turkey to serve out his sentence several weeks after Mr Brunsons release. After that, Turkish authorities would be expected to release at least four other US citizens it is detaining.

However, Turkey still insists the entire sanctions-busting case against state-owned Halkbank, including the possibility of fines worth billions of dollars, is dropped altogether. US officials have repeatedly told Ankara they cannot interfere in the legal proceedings brought by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

The impasse threatens to undermine Ankaras strenuous efforts this week to reassure markets about its economic policy after a plunge in the currency reverberated across other emerging markets.

Underscoring the rising concerns, Moodys and Standard & Poors both lowered Turkeys debt deeper into non-investment grade territory often called junk and warned that its currency crisis would exact a heavy economic and financial toll.

The lack of or delays in formulating a comprehensive and effective economic plan to address the underlying causes of the recent financial stress is a clear indication for declining policy predictability and effectiveness, Moodys said. Turkeys external funding needs remain significant, and the risk of a balance of payments crisis continues to rise.

Chinas Belt and Road project (BRI) is a driver of regional cyber threat activity "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Security experts have observed increasing cyber espionage activity related to Chinas Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

The alarm was launched by the experts from cybersecurity firms FireEye and Recorded Future.

Chinas Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a development project for the building of an infrastructure connecting countries in Southeast Asia, Central Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Africa.

For this reason, the project is considered strategic for almost any intelligence Agency.

FireEye defined it as a driver of regional cyber threat activity, experts warn of a spike in espionage operations aimed at gathering info in the project.

Cyber spies are already targeting organizations from various sectors that are involved in the project.

Cyber espionage activity related to the initiative will likely include the emergence of new groups and nation-state actors. Given the range of geopolitical interests affected by this endeavor, it may be a driver of emerging nation-state cyber actors to use their capabilities, reads a report published by FireEye.

FireEye uncovered an espionage campaign carried out by the China-linked APT group dubbed Roaming Tiger.

The Roaming Tiger campaign was discovered by experts at ESET in 2014, in December 2015 experts uncovered a cyber espionage campaign aimed at Russian organizations.

The APT group targeted entities in Belarus using specially crafted documents that referenced the Chinese infrastructure project as a bait.

FireEye observed the use of several malicious codes against organizations involved in the BRI project.

Chinese hackers used the TOYSNAKE backdoor to target several European foreign ministries. According to FireEye, another malware tracked as BANECHANT was used to target Maldives, a strategic center for financial investments related to BRI, meanwhile the LITRECOLA malware was used in attacks against Cambodia and the SAFERSING malware was involved in campaigns against international NGOs.

Experts also mentioned the recent attacks powered by the TEMP.Periscope group on the maritime industry.

Fake News media is caught lying again.

This time theyre defending a murdered to score political points agianst President Trump.

These are sick people.

The mainstream media cried a river about the arrest of an illegal alien who was caught by police while taking his pregnant wife to the hospital.

They left off the part that he is a murderer.

Via Reddit The Donald.

Has the liberal media ever cried this hard for an American murderer who was arrested while driving with his pregnant wife?
Or is it only the illegals who count any more on the left?

FOX News has the rest of the story.

A California woman said Saturday that she had to drive herself to the hospital and give birth without her husband after he was detained by immigration agents.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said the man was detained because he was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant in a homicide case in Mexico.

Maria del Carmen Venegas said she and her husband, Joel Arrona Lara, were driving to the hospital Wednesday when they stopped for gas in San Bernardino, just east of Los Angeles.

Surveillance footage shows two vehicles immediately flank the couples van after they pulled into the gas station. Agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement questioned the couple and asked for identification, Venegas said.

Venegas, 32, said she provided hers but that Arrona had left his at home in their rush to the hospital. The surveillance footage shows the agents handcuffing the 35-year-old Arrona and taking him away, leaving a sobbing Venegas alone at the gas station.

This E.R. Treats Opioid Addiction as an Emergency Not all do "IndyWatch Feed War"

Every year, thousands of people addicted to opioids show up at hospital emergency rooms in withdrawal so agonizing it leaves them moaning and writhing on the floor. Usually, theyre given medicines that help with vomiting or diarrhea and sent on their way, maybe with a few numbers to call about treatment.

When Rhonda Hauswirth arrived at the Highland Hospital E.R. here, retching and shaking violently after a day and a half without heroin, something very different happened. She was offered a dose of buprenorphine on the spot. One of three medications approved in the United States to treat opioid addiction, it works by easing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. The tablet dissolved under her tongue while she slumped in a plastic chair, her long red hair obscuring her ashen face.

Soon, the shakes stopped. I could focus a little more. I could see straight, said Ms. Hauswirth, 40. Id never heard of anyone going to an emergency room to do that.

Highland, a clattering big-city hospital where security wands constantly beep as new patients get scanned for weapons, is among a small group of institutions that have started initiating opioid addiction treatment in the E.R. Their aim is to plug a gaping hole in a medical system that consistently fails to provide treatment on demand, or any evidence-based treatment at all, even as more than two million Americans suffer from opioid addiction. According to the latest estimates, overdoses involving opioids killed nearly 50,000 people last year.

By providing buprenorphine around the clock to people in crisis people who may never otherwise seek medical care these E.R.s are doing their best to ensure a rare opportunity isnt lost.

THE POWER VERTICAL
The Ghosts Of August August 18, 2017 06:41 GMT
by Brian Whitmore

August is Russias sleepy month except, of course, when it isnt.

Its supposed to be a month for dachas, vacations, and slow news cycles. But its also been a month of coups, invasions, disasters, and financial meltdowns.

So much so, that its become something of an annual ritual and annual cliche to talk about Russias August Curse.

Every year, almost as if on cue, we tend to recall all the tumultuous events of Augusts past events such as the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, the financial meltdown of 1998, the Kursk submarine disaster of 2000, and many others and brace for what might be coming.

But at a deeper level, August isnt just a month of dramatic, tumultuous, and often tragic events. It has also often been a month of political watersheds a month when old eras die and new ones are born.

Every August, Russians wait for history, and they are rarely disappointed, journalist and commentator Julia Ioffe wrote in The New Yorker back in 2011.

Twenty-six Augusts ago in 1991, of course, the Soviet era ended when a failed hard-line coup against Mikhail Gorbachev ended more than seven decades of communist rule and led to the breakup of the Soviet Union.

And just seven years after that milestone, in August 1998, the backlash began in earnest.

On August 17, 1998, the Russian government defaulted on its debt, devalued the ruble and set off a massive financial crisis.

In addition to wiping out the savings of ordinary Russians, the financial meltdown also sparked a political crisis, crippled Boris Yeltsins presidency, and spelled the beginning of the end of Russias clumsy, fleeting, halting, and tentative post-Soviet experiment with Western-style liberal democracy.

The Advent Of Putin

And it was one August later, when the age of Vladimir Putin would begin born out of the death agony of the Yeltsin era.

In fact, August 1999 may have been Russias most dramatic and consequential August of all.

Russia still was reeling from an economic crisis. Prosecutors were investigating Yeltsins cronies and even members of his immediate family for graft.

The air was thick with intrigue. Kremlin clans were at each others throats. Regional leaders, led by Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov and former Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov, were in open political rebellion against the Kremlin.

And on August 7, Chechen militant commander Shamil Basayev invaded neighbori...

Palau: China weaponizing tourism to push allies away from Taiwan "IndyWatch Feed National"

Empty hotel rooms, idle tour boats and shuttered travel agencies reveal widening fissures in the tiny Pacific nation of Palau, which is caught in an escalating diplomatic tug-of-war between China and Taiwan.

Late last year, China effectively banned tour groups to the idyllic tropical archipelago, branding it an illegal destination due to its lack of diplomatic status.

As China extends its influence across the Pacific, Palau is one of Taipeis 18 remaining allies worldwide and is under pressure to switch allegiances, officials and business people there say.

.

There is an ongoing discussion about China weaponizing tourism, said Jeffrey Barabe, owner of Palau Central Hotel and Palau Carolines Resort in Koror. Some believe that the dollars were allowed to flow in and now they are pulling it back to try and get Palau to establish ties diplomatically.

In the commercial center of Koror, the Chinese pullback is obvious. Hotel blocks and restaurants stand empty, travel agencies are boarded and boats which take tourists to Palaus green, mushroom shaped Rock Islands are docked at the piers.

Prior to the ban, Chinese tourists accounted for about half the visitors to Palau. Of the 122,000 visitors in 2017, 55,000 were from China and 9,000 from Taiwan, official data showed.

Chinese investors had also gone on a buying frenzy, building hotels, opening businesses and securing large swathes of prime coastal real estate.

Image result for Palau, photos

The decline since the ban was announced has been so sharp, charter airline Palau Pacific Airways announced in July it would terminate flights to China, four hours away, from the end of this month.

The Chinese government was putting an effort to slow or stop tourists going to Palau, said the Taiwanese-controlled airline, which has experienced a 50 percent fall in bookings since the China restrictions began.

China has previously used its tourism clout as a diplomatic tool, last year halting tours to South Korea after Seoul installed a controversial U.S. missile defense system.

Her intervention prompted enthusiastic applause at a public hearing organised by parliament on the hugely sensitive issue of reforming land ownership in South Africa.

Our forefathers were robbed of their dignity through brutal colonialists who seized land, she said.

The majority of the people in this country are black. Yet they are the poorest. Lets expropriate without compensation! said the mother with her fist raised.

As elections due in 2019 approach, President Cyril Ramaphosa has intervened to accelerate land reform in order to undo a grave historical injustice against the black majority during colonialism and the apartheid era that ended in 1994.

Twenty-four years on and the white community that makes up eight percent of the population possess 72 percent of farms compared to only four percent in the hands of black people who make up four-fifths of the population, according to Ramaphosa.

To remedy the imbalance, the president recently announced that the constitution would be altered to allow for land to be seized and redistributed without compensation to the current owners.

Many black voters welcomed the announcement that provoked unprecedented concern among the white minority that has been aired at a series of public hearings across the nation this June, July and August to debate the combustible issue.

In a public hall in Vereeniging, a town an hour south of the commercial capital Johannesburg, more than 1,000 people turned out to make their voices heard.

In the front row sat a group of women wearing traditional Sotho dress.

We never stole land

Why should we compensate people who didnt acquire the lands rightfully?, asked Tsabeng Ramalope, a 30-year-old black nurse.

Are we waiting for a civil war for this matter to be resolved? she asked, speaking into a microphone, referring to several illegal land occupations seen in mostly urban areas in recent month...

Indonesia earthquake shakes Lombok AGAIN as island hit by 6.3 magnitude tremor after disaster killed 460 "IndyWatch Feed World"

A strong 6.3-magnitude earthquake rocked the Indonesian island of Lombok on Sunday, sending people fleeing into the streets just two weeks after a quake which killed more than 460 people. The quake was centred west-southwest of Belanting town in East Lombok, the US Geological Survey said, at a relatively shallow depth of seven kilometres. Residents said the earthquake was felt strongly in East Lombok. "I was driving to deliver aid to evacuees when suddenly the electricity pole was swaying. I realised it was an earthquake. "People started to scream and cry. They all ran to the street," East Lombok resident Agus Salim told AFP news agency. The tremor was also felt in the island's capital Mataram and on the neighbouring resort island of Bali.

IN SUMMARY
  • The two accused of failing to pass container through mobile scanner have denied committing the offence.
  • They allegedly committed the offence at the Mombasa port in Changamwe on January 13, 2013.

A Kenya Ports Authority employee has revealed that a container loaded with 638 pieces of ivory worth Sh382.7 million was not scanned before it was cleared for export.

Mr Benjamin Mwandawiro on Thursday told a Mombasa court that available records indicate that the mandatory procedure for container scanning at the port was not adhered to by the respective forwarder.

The standard procedures as required by Kenya Revenue Authority for clearing goods for is that export containers must be scanned once they have entered the port and prior to issuance of final release for shipment, he told Chief Magistrate Evans Makori.

He was testifying in a case in which Mr Fredrick Sababu and Mr James Ngala are charged with conspiracy to bring into a custom area prohibited goods, namely elephant tusks weighing 3827.5 kilograms that were stuffed in a 20-ft container for exportation to Thailand.

The duo have denied committing the offence at the Mombasa port in Changamwe on January 13, 2013.

The witness said the scanning process is normally done by a mobile scanner and that no container should be cleared for export before the process is followed.

In this particular case, neither the container has a final release for shipment issued nor does it have an endorsed position slip. Based on these facts, it is strongly believed that immediately after the container entry, the truck proceeded straight to the yard where the container was unprocedurally offloaded, he said in a report he produced in court.

Mr Mwandawiro, an export documentation officer, said after the final release for shipment has been issued by KRA, the forwarder proceeds to the documentation office and presents the position slip where final release for shipment is confirmed.

U.S. Federal Judge Blocks Man From Selling GTA V Cheating Software "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

U.S. judge blocks programs letting 'Grand Theft Auto' players 'cheat'

A federal judge on Thursday awarded Take-Two Interactive Software Inc, the maker of the "Grand Theft Auto" series, a preliminary injunction to stop a Georgia man from selling programs that it said helps players cheat at the best-selling video game.

Take-Two had accused David Zipperer of selling computer programs called Menyoo and Absolute that let users of the "Grand Theft Auto V" multiplayer feature Grand Theft Auto Online cheat by altering the game for their own benefit, or "griefing" other players by altering their game play without permission.

U.S. District Judge Louis Stanton in Manhattan said Take-Two was likely to show that Zipperer infringed its "Grand Theft Auto V" copyright, and that his programs would cause irreparable harm to its sales and reputation by discouraging users from buying its video games.

Stanton also said an injunction would serve the public interest by encouraging Take-Two to invest more in video games and was appropriate because of the "high risk" that Zipperer, who claimed to be unemployed, could not afford damages.

As we approach the 1 year anniversary of the atrocity in Charlottesville, Virginia, it seems to be an appropriate time to reflect on the historical role of the Labor Movement as an inherently Anti-Fascist Movement and on the future role of Labor in combatting the growing threat of Fascism, Bigotry, and White Nationalism.

In response over 170 Union Members, mostly Woodsmen from the local Lumberyard, began patrolling the streets, keeping an eye on the KKK threat. When asked by a local a reporter why the KKK would oppose them, the local Union Organizer responded, "Because we want good wages, eight hours a day in the lumber camps and clean linen on our bunks.". The Greenville KKK had been bought by the local bosses and were acting as Union Busters on behalf of the Lumber bosses.

Najib Balala lauds role of conservancies in wildlife safety efforts

Community and private conservancies in the northern rangelands have been credited for the increase in the elephant population in the country.

Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala said the countrys elephant population stood at 33,948 as at December 2017, an annual increase of 2.25 per cent since 1989.

In a speech read on his behalf by his Principal Secretary Margaret Mwakima during the World Elephant Day national celebration in Meru on Saturday, Mr Balala said there is need for increased engagement with communities to protect wildlife habitats.

The elephants are found in a range area of 139,344 kilometre square, an increase from 107,113 kilometre square as at the end of 2007.

Though there was an initial eminent decline in elephant numbers from a national population of approximately 170,000 in early 1970s, the elephant numbers have remained stable. The increase of the population and range is mostly due to establishment of community conservancies in known elephant range areas, Mr Balala said.

He added that the ministry would encourage more individuals and groups to devise ways of conserving wildlife.

Kenya Wildlife Service chairman John Waithaka called for concerted efforts to stop habitat fragmentation, blockage of corridors and poaching and demand for ivory; and appealed for more resources for habitat conservation.

In Summary

  • Recently, the High Court in Mombasa set free Feisal Ali, convicted for the trafficking of 2,152 kilogrammes of elephant ivory.

There are three Kenyans on Interpols worlds most wanted criminal list. They are neither terrorists, nor drug traffickers.

They are not even human traffickers or illegal arms dealers. They are all ivory traffickers, part of an illicit and ruthless $10 billion (Sh1tn) trade that is about to wipe out the iconic species within our lifetime.

Of the three, Gedi Ahmed is wanted for the possession of 230 kilogrammes of elephant ivory in Utawala, Nairobi, in 2017.

He fled from authorities after being given bail at Kibera Law Courts.

The remaining two are brothers, Nicholas Jefwa and Samuel Jefwa, who have notoriously evaded authorities since 2015.

They are the suspected masterminds behind the exportation of 6,400 kilogrammes of elephant ivory concealed in export coffee destined for Thailand and Singapore in 2013.

This seizure remains Kenyas largest illegal export of elephant ivory in its history.

Great Barrier Reef Politics "IndyWatch Feed National"

Australias environment has been in precarious hands since European settlement found its lengthy and persistent way to the continent.  It has been mined, mauled, drained, farmed, deforested and despoiled at a rate that was only restrained by the size of its small but rapacious populace.  When environmental matters have made an appearance, they have done so with a veil of political opportunism.  Few typify this more than Labors environment minister Senator Graham Richardsons efforts regarding the Tasmanian forests.  To win over the conservation-minded voter in marginal, city-based seats, it was good to go green at least for a bit.

The Great Barrier Reef has not been exempt from the political tussles of a troubled environmental conscience.  Its monumental size, and its status as an ecological wonder meant little in the late 1960s, when the appetite for development mattered most.  In 1967, it seemed to be facing imminent destruction, another casualty of a predatory mining industry keen for new conquests.  The state of Queensland had elected a National Party government hungry to exploit the environments wares.

As local tour operator Alistair Pike explained to the ABC, We had a fairly full-on development oriented government and mate, if they couldnt drill it, mine it, chop it down or whatever, they really didnt want to know about it.  It took characters such as that feted rat bag of an activist, rogue of action and Mission Beach artist John Bsst to bring angered but focused attention on threats to bulldoze Ellison Reef.  An impeccably connected person, he had the ear of Australian prime minister and fellow diver Harold Holt.  A cast of characters were duly mobilised: the CSIRO forester Len Webb, and president of the Queensland Wildlife Society Judith Wright became enthusiastic and un-phased recruits.

In the Australian environmental conscience, this gorgeously freakish wonder of ecology has been seen in isolation, its problems a local provenance and interest rather than a global phenomenon of ailing.  As the earth continues is warming push, earthbound, and very terrestrially unimaginative politicians have been attempting to treat the Reefs woes as separately resolvable from the broader challenges of climate change.

Little wonder, then, that a problem viewed in such limited terms could be duly remedied by donations without tender, lump sum payments without review.  Narrowly viewed problems tend to lead to narrowly devised solutions.  Such was the nature of the Turnbull governments $...

ROBERT MUELLER Was Too Busy To Answer Whitey Bulger Case Questions But DEMANDS President Trump Testify in Deep State Witch Hunt "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Corrupt Bad Cop Robert Mueller never had time to answer questions related to the Whitey Bulger case a case where Muellers team in the 1980s befriended Boston gangster Whitey Bulger and framed four innocent men of murder.

Judge Jeanine tonight noted that Special Counsel Robert Mueller never had time to answer questions related to his work with gangster Whitey Bulger but he expects the President to find time to talk to him about the fake Russia collusion story

Mueller aligned himself and the his FBI in the 1980s with notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, later portrayed by actor Johnny Depp in the movie Black Mass, (see trailor below)

Sara Carter discussed Mueller and his compatriot Andrew Weissmann, whom Mueller invited to be on his fraudulent Trump-Russia conspiracy team. Carter notes the following about Mueller and Weissman and their shady pasts with mob related cases

Weissmanns involvement in the Colombo case in the 1990s was the first of many cases that would draw criticism from his peers but this case, in particular, would be one of the FBIs biggest blunders. As I outlined last month, Judge Charles P. Sifton reprimanded Weissmann for withholding evidence from the defense, as previously reported. Weissmann allowed a corrupt FBI agent to testify against the defendants in the case despite having knowledge that the agent was under investigation. The agent had a nefarious relationship with a reputed underboss of the Colombo crime family, who was accused later of numerous murders, court records reveal.

Mueller had similar troubles during the 1980s in Boston when he was Acting U.S. Attorney from 1986 through 1987. Under Muellers watch in Boston, another one of the FBIs most scandalous cases occurred. At the time, an FBI agent by the name of John Connolly, who is now in prison for murder-related charges, had been the handler for James ...

Custom Split-Flap Display Is a Unique Way to Show the Weather "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Theres little doubt about the charms of a split-flap display. Watching a display build up a clear, legible message by flipping cards can be mesmerizing, whether on a retro clock radio from the 70s or as part of a big arrival and departure display at an airport or train station. But a weather station with a split-flap display? Thats something you dont see often.

We usually see projects using split-flap units harvested from some kind of commercial display, but [gabbapeople] decided to go custom and build these displays from the ground up. The frame and mechanicals for each display are made from laser-cut acrylic, as are the flip-card halves. Each cell can display a full alphanumeric character set on 36 cards, with each display driven by its own stepper. An Arduino fetches current conditions from a weather API and translates the description of the weather into a four-character code. The codes shown in the video below seem a little cryptic, but the abbreviation list posted with the project makes things a bit clearer. Bonus points if you can figure out what HMOO is without looking at the list.

We like the look and feel of this, but we wonder if split-flap icons might be a neat way to display weather too. It seems like it would be easy enough to do with [gabbapeople]s detailed instructions. Or you could always look at one of the many other custom split-flap displays weve featured for more inspiration.

It is not a mistake, if you are visiting Baku, to simply have each and every one of your meals at Seherli Tandir the other restaurants in town are dominated assets.

The menu allows you to order three different types of cherry jam.  Get the one in the middle, the sour one (dont let them tell you that you should not be ordering a jam, and dont put it on anything, just eat it).

The typical entree costs about $4-6.  And the staff is friendly and helpful.

Making aquafeed more sustainable: Scientists develop feeds using a marine microalga co-product "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Dartmouth scientists have created a more sustainable feed for aquaculture by using a marine microalga co-product as a feed ingredient. The study is the first of its kind to evaluate replacing fishmeal with a co-product in feed designed specifically for Nile tilapia. The results are published in the open access journal, PLOS ONE.

Aquaculture is the worlds fastest growing food sector, surpassing the global capture fisheries production in 2014. It provides more than 50 percent of the food supply to humans; however, it poses several environmental concerns. Aquaculture feed (aquafeeds) draws on 70 percent of the worlds and , which is obtained from small, ocean-caught fish such as anchovies, sardines, herring, menhaden, and mackerel, that are essential to the lower end of the . Analysts project that by 2040, the demand for fishmeal and fish oil will exceed supply. Aquafeeds also draw on large amounts of soy and corn from industrial farms, which pose other environmental concerns due to the use of fertilizers and potential runoff into rivers, lakes and coastal waters. In addition, aquafeeds may trigger nutrient pollution in aquaculture effluent, as fish are unable to fully digest soy and corn, which are major feed ingredients.

To address the environmental sustainability concerns regarding aquafeed, a Dartmouth team has been developing sustainable feeds for Nile tilapia, which examine the effectiveness of replacing fishmeal and fish oil with different types of marine microalgae. Marine microalgae are excellent sources of , minerals, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids, and can therefore, meet the nutrient requirements of fish. Omega-3 fatty acids are important for maintaining fish health; they also have neurological, cardiovascular and anti-cancer benefits to humans.

ANSWER: Yes. That seems to actually begin this coming week 8/20 and goes into the week of 09/10. This is just a cyclical period but it is not catastrophic so no need to run and hide under the desk. This is a trend that should continue for several years. However, we are entering a period where we can see an increase in activity cyclically speaking. It is just that 2018 was the beginning and we have seen quite a few volcanoes erupted so far this year. It tends to correlate with the downturn in the energy output of the sun.

HUGEST of News from Judge Anna!

With Anna Von Reitzs Article #1204, published this afternoon, we finally can get a glimpse of what is going on. Find the article at either site:

http://www.paulstramer.net/2018/08/as-things-now-stand.html

http://www.annavonreitz/asthingsnowstand.pdf

I suggest all read carefully a few times sitting down -- and then read between the lines a bit.

This does clarify for us the unique working arrangement for President Trump with the (unincorporated) United States of America, of which the American people and states are Primary Creditors and Anna is the fiduciary.

When I read about Mr. Trumps ignorant blessing to allow yet another French corporation and yet another UK corporation to step in to continue to rape and pillage us, I cannot help but wonder whether this might have been some sort of a sting op. Clearly the unincorporated government had not given its blessing and in fact had precluded that from happening again. (As Anna had stated previously it was unacceptable that any successor contractors come in. We have been governing ourselves with a skeleton crew, so to speak, as I interpret things.)

Note the section about filling the coffers of the unincorporated original states such that newly activated state governments will have funds.

And herein Anna clarifies that Congress is all but defunct.

Erdogan Has His Boys Out Burning only $1 Bills for Propaganda "IndyWatch Feed World"

 

Erdogan has his boys dressed in suits burning only a handful of US ONE DOLLAR bills as a nice propaganda piece. In truth, the Turkish people have been hoarding Dollars and Euros because they have lost all faith in their own currency. It is nice that Erdogan has a few people burning less than $100 for a video. All it shows is in fact that Erdogan is belligerent and he will put himself before the good of his own people.  He can pretend the people are burning dollars, but they are not cashing them in for lira. He is running around asking for help from France, Germany, Qatar, and anyone else with spare change.

Remaining Navajo Code Talkers Enjoy Their Day "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Navajo Times | Donovan Quintero
PJ James and Teresa K. Deal adjust Navajo Code Talker John Kinsels ribbons at Code Talker Day Tuesday.

Published August 19, 2018

WINDOW ROCK  Marine Corps veteran and former prisoner of war Gunny PJ James walked over to Navajo Code Talker John Kinsel Sr., 97, and saw his uniform was not inspection-ready.

His ribbons were not at the proper height.

James, being a former Marine Corps drill instructor and the code talkers flag carrier, or guide-on, began readjusting it for the World War II hero.

Kinsel paid no attention to what was going on as he made conversation and shook hands with admirers. After all, it was his and his eight remaining brothers-in-arms day. It was National Navajo Code Talkers Day.

Im like a young child who doesnt take care of himself, Kinsel joked in Navajo, as his daughter, Teresa K. Deal, helped James fix his military ribbons. After a few minutes, Kinsels uniform was in proper order.

Food Sovereignty Initiative at Osage Nation Continues to Grow and Improve "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published August 19, 2018

PAWHUSKA, Okla.   Five years ago, land already owned by the Osage Nation was revealed during an audit of ON assets. Today, this land is a seed for change and Osage and Native American elders and children on the Osage Reservation are already reaping the benefits.

Soon after the land was discovered, plans for a serious food sovereignty initiative began and soon after that Bird Creek Farms (BCF) was established. According to the U.S. Food Sovereignty Alliance (USFSA), Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods.

The first round of crops in 2015 was unsuccessful due to lack of knowledge about the land and its current tiny inhabitants. But, volunteers, AmeriCorps workers and Osage Nation employees remained diligent and worked hard to improve on past failures and lessons learned.

Then, things started to grow.

Last year, [BCF] delivered more than a thousand pounds of produce to elder and childrens programs and 2,592 lbs., or 144 pumpkins, were delivered to Osage schools, said Jason George (Osage), BCF Director.

More than a farm
This year (with four more months to go), BCF has already passed the two-thousand-pound mark for fresh produce delivered to the Osage Nation Elder Nutrition programs in Pawhuska and Fairfax, the Head Starts in Pawhuska and Skiatook, the WahZhaZhe Early Learning Academies (WELA) in Skiatook and Pawhuska, and the Osage language immersion school, Daposka Ahnkodahpi, also in Pawhuska. In addition to growing and delivering supplemental farm fresh produce in a recognized food desert, over the last two years BCF has generously provided firewood for traditional Osage meals, events, and gatherings. And, also in that time a total of 253 lbs. of fresh produce was donated to all three Osage traditional communities or districts and the annual Osage Nation Cultural Walk.

The farm has also served as an outdoor classroom for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) hands-on learning for Osage schools and programs. The activities were developed by BCF staff and other departments in the Osage Nation with professionals in the STEAM career fields. The Osage Nation Education Department was also key in coordinating efforts and bringing in professionals in the Osage Nation workforce.

Life Without Movement. How Work in The Office Affects On Your Health "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published August 19, 2018

Everyone knows that sitting a lot will not make any good to our health, but only a few people really realize the problem and know the ways of fixing it. And only a few people realize sitting too much can actually make your life shorter!

The sedentary lifestyle firstly refers to those who work in an office, but also applicable for freelance workers and students. They are of course aware of the potential problems that may come their way, but to which extent? The common health issues are connected with weight gain, some back pain problems and affected eyesight. Sadly, there are many more potential risks than one could imagine. If you are an office worker, your health condition may be influenced even by the position of your mouse on the desk or whether you are bored at your work desk. This is not to mention heart diseases, cancer risks, problems with lungs, obesity, loss of muscle strength etc.

For sure, we cant protect ourselves from all the potential dangers and eliminate all the destroying factors completely, but there are certainly lots of ways you can get things going much better.

The most common mistake many Americans (or probably any other nationalities) make is becoming a gym victim for a weekend. Knowing that sitting for more than six hours a day is a destroying thing to do, lots of people suppose they can compensate it by hitting the gym for two days in a row, working out like a wild buffalo. Surely, any physical activity is just amazing, but cant be a lifesaver in such situations. Movement is life, our bodies were designed for labor. No surprise those American Indian actors look so happy performing their dances in movies.

According to many specialists statements, the only way you can help yourself is having a regular physical activity and maintaining the right office routine. As you are exposed to numerous dangers in the office, its vital to be conscious of all your actions. Remember, no exercise at the weekend wont be effective enough if you dont do standing breaks at your desk every thirty minutes. These breaks are also a good occasion for taking your eyes off the screen. Instead of reaching your phon...

Franklin And Eleanor Roosevelt Wing vs The Joe Lieberman And Blanche Lincoln Wing "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

No, not just another pretty face

Democrats from the Democratic wing of the party-- people in the tradition of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt rather than Joe Lieberman and Blanche Lincoln-- had some nice strong wins Tuesday. It was very healthy for the Democratic Party in general that Chamber of Commerce Democrat Mary Glassman was defeated by Teacher of the Year Jahana Hayes in Connecticut, that progressives with powerful personal brands like Randy Bryce WI-01) and Ilhan Omar (MN-05) were nominated for congressional races they should win and that Vermont Democratic voters overwhelmingly picked Christine Hallquist, a transgender women, as their nominee for governor. In fact, not only did Hallquist outpoll popular Republican incumbent Phil Scott Democratic turnout was 57,102 compared to Republican turnout of just 35,840, despite a barn-burner primary on the GOP side. Actually significantly more Democrats voted than Republicans-- both statewide and in every contested congressional race-- in all 4 states that had primaries. Even in midwestern districts that Trump won in 2016, Democrats showed up in greater numbers than did Republicans. All good.

Demanding Wide-Reaching Reforms and an End to Slavery, Inmates in 17 States Plan Prison Strike "IndyWatch Feed World"

Incarcerated Americans in at least 17 states will go on strike this coming week, refusing to perform labor and engaging in sit-ins and hunger strikes to demand major reforms to the country's prison and criminal justice systems. The Nationwide Prison Strike is planned for August 21, the day Nat Turner led an uprising of slaves in 1831, until September 9, the 47th anniversary of the Attica prison rebellion in which more than 40 people were killed. Organizers of the action, which is endorsed by Jailhouse Lawyers Speak and the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC), have released a list of ten demands for improvements to their living conditions, sentencing policies, and laws that allow for prison slavery.

A group of physicists are questioning our understanding of how quarks a type of elementary particle arrange themselves under extreme conditions. And their quest is revealing that elements beyond the edge of the periodic table might be fair weirder than we thought.

Trump has taken hard aim at Russiagate 'ringleader' Brennan - will the Deep State protect him? "IndyWatch Feed World"

At war with current and former intelligence officials since before he was elected, Donald Trump on Wednesday moved to strip Barack Obama's CIA chief of his security clearance, though worse may be in store for John Brennan, says Ray McGovern. There's more than meets the eye to President Donald Trump's decision to revoke the security clearances that ex-CIA Director John Brennan enjoyed as a courtesy customarily afforded former directors. The President's move is the second major sign that Brennan is about to be hoisted on his own petard. It is one embroidered with rhetoric charging Trump with treason and, far more important, with documents now in the hands of congressional investigators showing Brennan's ringleader role in the so-far unsuccessful attempts to derail Trump both before and after the 2016 election. Brennan will fight hard to avoid being put on trial but will need united support from from his Deep State co-conspirators-a dubious proposition. One of Brennan's major concerns at this point has to be whether the "honor-among-thieves" ethos will prevail, or whether some or all of his former partners in crime will latch onto the opportunity to "confess" to investigators: "Brennan made me do it."

Researchers Suggest an Abundance of "Water World" Exoplanets "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Water-worlds are common: Exoplanets may contain vast amounts of water

Scientists have shown that water is likely to be a major component of those exoplanets (planets orbiting other stars) which are between two to four times the size of Earth. It will have implications for the search of life in our Galaxy. The work is presented at the Goldschmidt conference in Boston.

[...] [A] new evaluation of data from the exoplanet-hunting Kepler Space Telescope and the Gaia mission indicates that many of the known planets may contain as much as 50% water. This is much more than the Earth's 0.02% (by weight) water content. [...] Scientists have found that many of the 4000 confirmed or candidate exoplanets discovered so far fall into two size categories: those with the planetary radius averaging around 1.5 that of the Earth, and those averaging around 2.5 times the radius of the Earth.

[...] "We have looked at how mass relates to radius, and developed a model which might explain the relationship," said [lead researcher] Li Zeng. The model indicates that those exoplanets which have a radius of around x1.5 Earth radius tend to be rocky planets (of typically x5 the mass of the Earth), while those with a radius of x2.5 Earth radius (with a mass around x10 that of the Earth) are probably water worlds."

"This is water, but not as commonly found here on Earth," said Li Zeng. "Their surface temperature is expected to be in the 200 to 500 degree Celsius range. Their surface may be shrouded in a water-vapor-dominated atmosphere, with a liquid water layer underneath. Moving deeper, one would expect to find this water transforms into high-pressure ices before we reaching the solid rocky core. The beauty of the model is that it explains just how composition relates to the known facts about these planets." Li Zeng continued, "Our data indicate that about 35% of all known exoplanets which are bigger than Earth should be water-rich. These water worlds likely formed in similar ways to the giant planet cores (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune) which we find in our own solar system. The newly-launched TESS mission will find many more of them, with the help of ground-based spectroscopic follow-up. The next generation space telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope, will hopefully characterize the atmosphere of some of them. This is an exciting time for those interested in these remote worlds."

ICE Arrests Man Driving His Pregnant Wife to the Hospital "IndyWatch Feed World"

Joel Arrona-Lara was driving his wife to deliver their baby when he was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, Los Angeles-area station CBS2 reported Friday. He had stopped to get gas at a San Bernardino service station when he was approached by ICE officers demanding identification.

Arrona-Laras wife, Maria del Carmen Venegas, was able to provide identification, but her husband could not. Venegas offered to go back and get it for the officers, explaining he and his wife had left their home in a rush, but the agents werent interested.

Instead, CBS2 reports, the agents then asked Arrona to exit the vehicle, searched the car for weapons, and put Arrona into custody, leaving [Venegas] alone at the gas station.

Venegas had to drive herself to the hospital.

I feel very bad right now, Venegas told CBS2 from the hospital, holding her newborn son. My husband needs to be here. He had to wait for his son for so long, and someone just took him away.

Arrona-Lara is currently being held in a detention center in downtown Los Angeles. ICE confirmed the detention to the HuffPost on Saturday, and described Arrona-Lara as a Mexican citizen living in the United States without documents.

ICE also told HuffPost it is beginning removal proceedings for Arrona-Lara. ICE continues to focus its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security, the agency said in a statement. Explaining their reasoning for this and other detentions, ICE continued:

ICE conducts targeted immigration enforcement in compliance with federal law and agency policy. However, ICE will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement. All of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.

In a Spanish-language interview with Univision, Emilio Amaya Garca, director of the Community Services Center of San Bernardino and Arrona-Laras lawyer, highlighted ICEs lack of sensitivity. She continued, In this case, not only could [ICE] have endangered the life of the mother, but also that of the child, who is a citizen of this country.

"Believe in Yourself!" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Believe in Yourself!"
by Jill Badonsky

What you are is a question only you can answer.
-  Lois McMaster Bujold

"We tend to be attracted to confident, bold, defiant people in the world. Many times audacity can go further than even talent. The talented person who does not show belief and confidence can flounder, when someone less talented but with assertive belief can flourish. Being convinced in the merit of ourselves is an attractive energy that sells and magnetizes attention as much for the product as for the belief itself. Spending time working on confidence, acting as if we are worthy, excellent, daring and courageous would be time well spent for the person desiring success. That is why one of the nine Greek Muses was upgraded to a Muse with moxie called Audacity.

The word audacity is a synonym for boldness, daring and courage. Other synonyms include grit, guts and, appropriately patience. The Muse Audacity is here to inspire these qualities in order to endow Mortals with the courage they need to be creatively liberated, and to be themselves without explanation or apology. You have probably heard someone exclaim WELLTHE AUDACITY! about someone who had the nerve to do something bold and perhaps rude. Audacity in this case is not disrespect toward other mortals, or toward oneself. Audacitys influence includes respect yet this does not necessarily mean a positive public opinion is needed. In fact, one of the favorite things Audacity encourages mortals to believe is Listen, if everyone likes what Ive done, I havent gone far enough it is not possible to be liked by everyone if I am deeply authentic and true to myself. And this is perfectly okay.

Hidden Ancient Technology Revealed: The Luxor -- Atlantean Seal "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Source: Aether Force | by John Echel, July 27th, 2018

It provides immunity against subtle energy invasions. It protects against negative influences and dangers of all kinds. It forms a vibrational energy shield neutralizing all evil,spells and enchantments. It improves overall health. It fosters contacts with the spiritual dimensions. It is primarily a personal tool as it adjusts itself to the personal magnetic field of the person who wears it. Of course, these are subjective claims, and one has to make up his own mind whether or not this is true. There are many vendors on the market who sell Atlantean Rings. By using my ability to sense the energy of objects, it is my opinion that most of these rings do not work because they have been made in a crude and rudimentary way. Sometimes the design has been altered too. However there are some jewelry designers that are taking the time and effort to handcraft rings, and bangles in a very accurate, detailed and sharp design, which, according to my own feeling, are very effective. These are usually made in gold or silver.

Basic design of the Atlantean Ring and Bar:



The Origin of the Atlantean Ring

The original Atlantis ring was found in 1860 in Egypt in a tomb of an Egyptian high priest, by the Egyptologist, Marquis d'Aigrain, during excavations in the Valley of the Kings. It was then passed on to Howard Carter who had it until his death in 1939. This ring would be at least 5,000 years old and it was made of dark sandstone from the mines of Assouan. The ring had geometric symbols carved into it. The symbols were unlike anything known in ancient Egypt. Through clairvoyant observation it is reported that the ring was from a priest from the time of Atlantis.

The symbols, or patterns, look very modern and timeless, with a simplicity of lines and shapes, but that's what makes the ring so fascinating. In the middle at the top of the ring there are three parallel rectangles. Rectangles which...

Now Niantic plans to offer its custom AR software to other developers as the Real World Platform, and is teasing advanced features that go beyond the capabilities of Apples and Googles development kits.

Already used in Pokmon GO, Ingress, and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the Real World Platform is an evolving software engine that adds digital characters and shared social experiences to real-world map data. Niantic has recently bolstered the AR platforms development team by acquiring computer vision specialist companies Escher Reality and Matrix Mill (which also has machine learning expertise).

Matrix Mills machine learning will power one of the Real World Platforms upcoming tricks a realtime AR occlusion engine. As demonstrated, the feature enables 3D versions of Pikachu and Eevee to disappear behind real world objects and people, even as both the camera and people move. Niantic is using a machine-trained neural network to determine which objects should be considered foreground or background versus the AR characters.

Hindu mythology is filled with incredible tales, stories mythologies and most importantly written texts.

In previous articles, we covered the Mahabharata and the countless powerful weapons described in it.

According to Ancient Hindu history one of the most extensive on the planet their ancient sacred texts called the 'Vedas' speak of incredible flying ships that visited our planet over 6000 years ago.

In this article, we take a look at the Vimana, more specifically, the ancient Pushpaka Vimana, a powerful ancient flying vehicle described in Hindu texts and Sanskrit epics.

The Pushpaka Vimana of king Ravana (who captured the Vimana from Lord Kubera; and Rama returned it to Kubera) is the most quoted example of a vimana.

Vimanas are also mentioned in Jain textsJainism, an ancient Indian religion.

If we take a look at ancient Sanskrit and the etymology of the Vimana, we will find that it means "measuring out, traversing" or "having been measured out".

I wrote Chapter 10 of the book, The Psychological Transformation of the Experiencer After Contact: An Exoconsciousness Analysis of the FREE Research Data

When Rey Hernandez, the co-founder of FREE, asked me to examine the survey data from an Exoconsciousness perspective, I had no idea what lay ahead as I dove into their mound of information. I had no idea how to even begin composing my thoughts, much less writing a chapter.

The Experiencer Data Speaks

Slowly, reading the data day after day, it took on a life of its own. The data began to speak to me. The 4,200 Experiencers who completed the survey spoke to me. What they had to say was, to say the least, astounding.

The data said that these Experiencers, who opened their hearts and poured their personal information out to FREE, signaled a new era in ufology and contact research.

The data spoke that the FREE research marks a clear delineation from objectified UFO Craft, Alien Abduction, MILAB and Psychopathological analysis of Experiencers. Also, it marks a clear delineation from select small samples of Experiencers as the basis for theorizing what happens in contact. While all of these former researchers and their theories contributed to our understanding of ET, NHI, and contact, the survey spoke of the need to develop new methods of research and accompanying theories....

Screen Time is Hard on your Eyes -- Heres How to Protect Them "IndyWatch Feed World"



Source: Natural News | by Janine Acero

If you're staring at a screen all day, you may develop other vision-related ailments, such as eye fatigue, dry eyes, sore eyes, and double vision. Long periods of screen exposure not only affect the eyesight, but other parts of your body as well. For instance, headaches can be caused by blurred vision. Protect your eyes from strain with the following tips: (h/t to MindBodyGreen.com.)

Practice good phone and computer habits These days, you won't find anyone who isn't looking into some sort of screen, be it a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. The significant amount of time spent exposing your eyes to artificial blue light is a major driver of blurred or impaired vision. It's important to take frequent breaks by blinking more often and looking away from the screen for two to three minutes for every 15 to 20 minutes of screen time. In addition, you can adjust the brightness, text size, and color temperature of your phone or laptop to become less intense and glaring to the eyes. You may also upgrade the display to a clear resolution to help avoid eye strain.

Adjust your lifestyle habits What you do to your eyes every day will ultimately affect their performance. When you're outside, your eyes may be exposed to harmful rays of sunlight. Protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses, or you can opt for eyeglasses with anti-glare lenses. When indoors, be sure to have proper lighting for when you're reading or writing. [Stillness in the Storm Editor: Research has been conducted that suggests wearing sunglasses too much robs the body of the solar energy it needs for proper health.

(Video) Gerald Pollack: Weather and EZ Water -- An Intimate Role of Separated Charge | EU2017 "IndyWatch Feed World"





Published on Jul 29, 2018

Among atmospheric scientists, two central features of weather dynamics remain mechanistically uncertain: evaporation and cloud formation. Absent proper understanding, predicting weather patterns remains challenging. Even simple weather-related phenomena elude understanding. For example: (i) Why can clouds suspend themselves above the earth? From the weight of the constituent water droplets, the force of gravitation should pull clouds downward, but commonly it doesnt. Clouds float. And (ii), why do dark clouds sometimes release their contents as rain, and other times not? His work on EZ water provides a basis for possible answers to those and related questions. The presentation will offer a fresh overview of possible mechanisms of weather. It will propose answers to these questions and offer insights into possible mechanisms of common, as well as exotic, weather phenomena such as hurricanes and tornadoes. Weather, after all, is a phenomenon centered on water if EZ (fourth-phase) water exists, then it must play some role in those phenomena. The question we address is how, and Dr. Pollack postulates that charge plays a central role.

A Politics of Liberation "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why I Think of Freedom as the Ability to Choose Ones Own Suffering

We went, my partner and I, to see the Francis Bacon exhibition at the Tate today. A rare trip into the sunlight for me. My favourite painter, a kind of incandescent genius. Bacon turned everything on its head. Strangely modern, oddly classical triptychs, like the one above. What do they really say?

We came home, late. Tired, she fell asleep quietly on the sofa, smiling her contented smile. A perfect day. Something in my heart broke, sharply, a little. Have you ever had a day like that?

I wanted to preserve that moment in amber. To make it endless. To stretch with it into infinity. But here is time. Here is death. Here is the body, the form, here is decay and dissolution and distance. To love is to grieve. To love, genuinely, is to brim over with grief, in the very instant that one loves, for the very person whom one loves. Bacon stretches the human shape into a blur. The truth of us is revealed. A becoming that is a falling apart. And so love is grief. Because even the very moment of love, truth, revelation, is itself something that cant be held onto. Snap! Gone. Every perfect moment is as evanescent as the frost, the wind, the dust. Just like today.

Theres no consolation for that, is there? Except, perhaps, tomorrow. But what does that make us?

We are a dilemma. Either we love genuinely, and we grieve terribly, not later, but right here and right now, in the moment that we love. Or we are too afraid to, and we are empty, lonely, timid, and hollow. Either way, there is pain. No way out. Bacon painted triptychs. Two choices. Grief or emptiness. One answer. Love, which is death. Three panels.

The great question of us, if we are true, if we understand ourselves, if we see deep into the heart of life, is whether we can choose our own suffering. Or whether we must suffer in ways that we wouldnt, or cant choose to suffer at all. Just that much. Ill come back to it.

When we can choose our own suffering, we are free. In freedom, we have dignity, grace, meaning, purpose, and beauty. But if we are not free, we have none of those things. But to be free, we must accept grief as the necessary price of love. That perfect moment will pass, die, fall away, fade. Yet to experience it fully at all is to choose all that.

Do you understand what Im trying to point to? The tragedy of the human condition, you might say. In a way. Im pointing to liberation. What is it, really? What should liberation be? Liberation should be just what I had today. Nothing more, nothing less.

The chance to choose which liberation one wants. The true oneor the false one. The one made of love and grief, scarring the very hearts that they free, the liberation of Bacon, Sartre, Camus, Freud, Marx. Or the liberation of now. The one capitalism offers....

Id never heard of Tiffany before, but I saw this somewhere (FB, Twitter?) and it really seemed to point out many things that are awesomely occurring on this planet right now. If youre unaware of what is occurring, this article may help. I found it illuminating and uplifting to read this from someone who has gone through their process and is now part of the Great Awakening.

Something is happening. To be more precise, a lot of somethings are happening. And when you sit back and add it all up, it paints a very clear picture; were heading someplace brand spanking new! The Great Awakening has arrived.

People and institutions are falling from grace. Big people and big institutions, in staggering simultaneous fashion, are careening towards complete and total destruction. The church, the FBI, titans of industry, media moguls, everyday a new bomb is dropping on the world of illusions that held their false power structure in place

We have never seen this before. Ever.we are Sloughing off an entire world that was. A world we thought was the only one that could exist. But, low and behold, were witnessing that world be destroyed.

What is causing this cataclysmic destruction? The truth. The truth is lighting the false world on fire and burning it to the ground.

As the deceivers fall, the truth seekers and truth tellers are rising. The People are rising. There is a great power transfer going on, and were all an important part of it. Each and every one of us. If youre tuned in to your discernment, telling who is who is becoming easier and easier. If youre not as tuned in yet just remember this: you will know them by their fruits.

Wage gap: Pay for CEOs increases dramatically - while average workers get no significant raise "IndyWatch Feed World"

A recent report by the Economic Policy Institute shows that top managers are getting higher compensation every year, while their employees' salaries barely change. "In 2017 the average CEO of the 350 largest firms in the US received $18.9 million in compensation, a 17.6 percent increase over 2016. The typical worker's compensation remained flat, rising a mere 0.3 percent," the report said. "The 2017 CEO-to-worker compensation ratio of 312-to-1 was far greater than the 20-to-1 ratio in 1965 and more than five times greater than the 58-to-1 ratio in 1989." The difference between the compensations of CEOs and other very-high-wage earners is also growing, with CEOs of large companies earning 5.5 times more than the average earner in the top 0.1 percent.

READER ADVISORY: The topic is disturbing in more ways than one. Discretion is advised.

Message from Rayelan Allan:

My husband, Gunther Russbacher wrote the following dedication to the men who accompanied him on the covert mission Operation Clydesdale and who never returned.

This story describes a covert mission, in which Americans died in service of their country. The men named in this story are some of the nameless stars that are on the marble wall at CIA headquarters at Langley , Virginia.

I would like to dedicate this story to all the men, living, wounded and dead, who have risked their lives in defense of American ideas, on missions so secret that they can never be revealed to anyone.

Many of these men... (and women too), are your fathers, your brothers, your husbands, your neighbors. They live double and triple lives. They live on the edge, always ready to spring into action in the need arises. They have no real lives of their own. They live in a constant ?on call? state. When the call comes, they never know if they will come home dead or alive. They never know if they will see their wives and children again.

These men (and women) are the unsung heros of America?s secret wars. When Gunther wrote this, he took the time to add the family side of his life. The way in which he wrote this articl...

"A place where you can hide and where you can also see everything around you." On an icy December day here, trees bare and frost-glazed, it wasn't at first apparent where you could hide in Zaryadye Park, Moscow's first new green space in 50 years, designed by the American architects Diller Scofidio & Renfro, and one of the most ambitious and expensive architectural projects in Russia in decades. But Mr. Kudryavtsev, a partner at Citymakers, the Moscow-based urban planning team that worked on the project with the architects, was soon proudly pointing out how the numerous buildings on the 35-acre site have been tucked under curving, plant and tree-filled slopes. Each of these, he explained, represents an aspect of Russia's varied regional landscapes: tundra, the steppe, the wetlands, birch forests.

As Things Now Stand



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

The assets of the bankrupt States of States (Territorial United States) and the liquidated STATES OF STATES (Municipal United States) have been claimed and rolled into the associated State Trusts doing business as, for example, the Maine State (Trust) and Wisconsin State (Trust) since 2016.

This was done by the Priority Creditors to protect the assets from the Secondary Creditors --- international banks.

Meantime, the guilty government of France has launched "The Republic for the United States of America" as a replacement Territorial Government and the guilty UK Government has launched THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA as a replacement for the Municipal Government.

And they have both proposed, apparently with Mr. Trump's ignorant blessing, to continue paying themselves with our money, based on borrowing against our assets, without our permission and in fact against our actual instructions.

Therefore, as of yesterday, all the State Trusts were rolled over in-to the actual sovereign States and both The Republic for the United States of America and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA were hit with Agricultural Liens and seized upon.

Apparently, neither the UK nor France have learned that "No means no." and they have somehow convinced Mr. Trump that the Operation of Law related to Delegated Authorities doesn't work with the regularity of gravity. Even though it does.

Their attempt to continue the same old scam on a different day has been thwarted and our assets are now safely off their playing field. From here on in, it becomes a matter of head-to-head debate.

Omo-Agege also pointed out that the APC caucus was also against the alleged proposal for a joint session of the Senate and House of Representatives whenever Saraki and Dogara reconvene the National Assembly.

A review and implications for aging research "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The effects of donor age on organ transplants: A review and implications for aging research.


Despite the considerable amount of data available on the effect of donor age upon the outcomes of organ transplantation, these still represent an underutilized resource in aging research. In this review, we have compiled relevant studies that analyze the effect of donor age in graft and patient survival following liver, kidney, pancreas, heart, lung and cornea transplantation, with the aim of deriving insights into possible differential aging rates between the different organs. Overall, older donor age is associated with worse outcomes for all the organs studied. Nonetheless, the donor age from which the negative effects upon graft or patient survival starts to be significant varies between organs. In kidney transplantation, this age is within the third decade of life while the data for heart transplantation suggest a significant effect starting from donors over age 40. This threshold was less defined in liver transplantation where it ranges between 30 and 50years. The results for the pancreas are also suggestive of a detrimental effect starting at a donor age of around 40, although these are mainly derived from simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation data. In lung transplantation, a clear effect was only seen for donors over 65, with negative effects of donor age upon transplantation outcomes likely beginning after age 50. Corneal transplants appear to be less affected by donor age as the majority of studies were unable to find any effect of donor age during the first few years posttransplantation. Overall, patterns of the effect of donor age in patient and graft survival were observed for several organ types and placed in the context of knowledge on aging.

Senator Warren Steps out of a Most Deadly Closet for all to See "IndyWatch Feed World"

U.S. Senator now steps out of a most deadly closet for all to see.



Source: https://observernew.blogspot.com

Yes, the Democrat agenda is now fully out in the open. The Dems had aligned themselves with the Marxist UN many years ago and continue to push their totalitarianism. (The article below also discusses Al Gore's early involvement.)

The assault on the rights and freedom of the individual has a plethora of faces and schemes. Here are but four examples of many regarding the land grabbing ruse:

Now we have Elizabeth Warren allegedly of native American descent firmly on the bandwagon of despotism under a vague dictum of holding capitalism to accountability.
Read and be alarmed, very alarmed.

Warren Advocating Largest Seizure of Private Property in Human History

By D Jolly

Democrats have been dangerous for many years and theyve been getting bolder and bolder about it.

When Al Gore was still senator from Tennessee, he represented the United States at a United Nations earth summit. There were over 25 resolutions presented by the UN at that summit. One gave a UN environmental police force the authority to cross any border and dictate to the nation in the event of any alleged environmental crisis. Another resolution called for all land in the world to be placed under the jurisdiction of the United Nations. This would give the UN complete authority to determine who got to live where and on how much land eliminating private land ownership anywhere in the world.

Indias quest to find a trillion-dollar nuclear fuel on the Moon "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The countries which have the capacity to bring that source from the moon to Earth will dictate the process, said K Sivan, chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). I dont want to be just a part of them, I want to lead them.

The mission would solidify Indias place among the fleet of explorers racing to the moon, Mars and beyond for scientific, commercial or military gains. The governments of the US, China, India, Japan and Russia are competing with startups and billionaires Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson to launch satellites, robotic landers, astronauts and tourists into the cosmos.

The rover landing is one step in an envisioned series for ISRO that includes putting a space station in orbit and, potentially, an Indian crew on the moon. The government has yet to set a timeframe.

Quantum Financial System Oversight of all Banking Activities "IndyWatch Feed World"

Source: Dinar Chronicles



A lot of misinformation or misunderstanding surrounding the QFS (Quantum Financial System), is very apparent when posters/gurus/con-call hosts, etc., talk about the banks doing the exchanges. The banks/bankers are only agents of the QFS nothing more. They have a job to do to support your Sovereign will. The QFS has complete oversight of their agents and will ensure that the whole redemption/exchange process is done honestly and securely.

If one does not have Zim, you may be directed to an established bank to do your exchange. Even Zim holders in rural areas might be asked to redeem and/or exchange at a bank for convenience purposes only. The underlying fact should be clear, when using the 800# to set up your appointment, any exchange using a bank is subject to QFS oversight. Why? Because ALL funds from exchange or redemption will be deposited directly into your own personal account within the QFS, NOT A BANK. To participate in the exchange process, all banks that exchange/redeem are only acting as an agent of the QFS. They will also be a source of information about the QFS and will explain how the QFS is to be used, and will have the necessary software package for you to gain entrance into the QFS to use your funds. They will also have a website address for further explanation. The QFS has complete control of any banking transaction once the QFS is switched on. The RV/GCR will never happen until the QFS is in complete control of all funds. So, when the RV happens, know in advance that the QFS is in operation and will be the financial system you will be using. Any information that contradicts this truism, is false and fallacious. That source might also be peddling other false narratives as well; IE lopping of zeros off the Zim Bonds notes. This is the death knoll for the Cabal banking system. John Q. Public will take some time to transition but the transition will take place before John Q, realizes it has happened. The shills and Cabal agents know this and want to lessen the effects of the RV on their system, but, it is dead. Believing in this false narrative only hurts yourself.

GITMO Hopping with Activity "IndyWatch Feed World"

Source: Dinar Chronicles

Mass arrests and the Global Currency Reset are the main triggers for the Event. Therefore major building activity at Guantanamo Bay military base (GITMO) in Cuba is cause for celebration. Here are three tweets from Lisa Mei Crowley about GITMO...

https://twitter.com/LisaMei62

First tweet...

'Navy hires firm that re-built the World Trade Center to expand the Guantanamo Bay war court complex, with Top Secret office space for lawyers defending the accused plotters of the September 11th terrorist attack' (Herald Sun, 28th April 2018).

Second tweet...

'More than 160 North Carolina National Guard soldiers...left for Guantanamo Bay Cuba on Tuesday where they will be deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom - GITMO' (WNCT9, 14th August 2018)

Third tweet...

'From a FB friend...I know a guy who works at gitmo doing the construction...he says the place has been HOPPING with activity and they are like ants building shit over there...he says the anticipation in the air is palpable.' (JohnFromGeorgia, Twitter 18th August 2018)

It is no secret that President Trump is plowing millions of dollars into upgrading and expanding GITMO. The mass arrests must be very close. Q posts are seeding the horrific details of the cabal's satanic activities to prepare us.

How can we be prepared for the scale of these heinous crimes against children? Today I woke in the early hours feeling physically ill after just skimming through some of the information yesterday.

Just know that what awaits those evil psychopaths is unimaginable. If they refuse to face their crimes, they could be reabsorbed by Source, never to be individual again - their entire soul identity gone forever.

W&J leaders call on Qld Govt not to extinguish native title "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

MEDIA RELEASE 18 August 2018 Traditional Owners vow to continue to defend their land rights against Adani ~ W&J leaders say appeal pending against court decision favouring Adanis land grab ~ Request no action from Queensland Government on extinguishment of native title ~ Senior Counsel advice says the State not obliged to wipe out land title ~ Appeal to UN for urgent action on failure of Australian law to protect the right to free prior informed consent ~ Adani ILUA proves Native Title system needs major reform In the wake of yesterdays adverse Federal Court decision against their challenge to Adanis ILUA, Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners say yesterdays judgement merely confirms the limitations of the native title system, and fails to address their right as Indigenous people to free, prior and informed consent, which is at the heart of their action. Mr Adrian Burragubba, one of five applicants in the case, and W&J cultural leader says: We are calling on the Queensland Government to rule out extinguishing our native title in any part of our land. Once native title is gone, it is gone forever. It would be a travesty for the Government to wipe out our title for Adani. If Queensland can stop them dredging the Reef before Adani has money, or pull the pin on $1 billion NAIF funding, they can surely protect our rights to our land. They must not hand a private corporation land title at our expense, based on discriminatory laws. The Queensland Government has a clear choice here, and yesterdays ruling in no way forces them to proceed to extinguish our native title. Dont be fooled, it is up to the Government what happens next. Adani cant be trusted; how can they say they respect the rights, history, future intentions and requests of the traditional owners? We are Traditional Owners, we are the people from that land, and they have never respected our decisions, or our right to free prior informed consent, or our aspirations to care for our ancestral country. They split our people for their own ends and then try to claim they care. They should walk away in shame for all the damage they have done. Ms Linda Bobongie, another applicant and chairperson of the Traditional Owners Council, says: While we respect the decisions of the courts, we arent satisfied by this judgement and will work with our legal team to prepare an appeal to a higher court. We know the Queensland Government has no obligation to act on extinguishment for Adani. They should wait until all our appeals are exhausted. We held out hope for this legal avenue, but anticipated a conservative judgement within the Native Title system, and were prepared for the decision. Our Council has vowed to continue to defend our lands and waters from Adanis destruction. We call on Adani to immediately withdraw from this damaging project on our land. No administrative decisions that block our rights will stop us standing our ground to defend and protect Wangan a...

PC in an SNES Case is a Weirdly Perfect Fit "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

For better or for worse, a considerable number of the projects weve seen here at Hackaday can be accurately summarized as: Raspberry Pi put into something. Which is hardly a surprise, the Pi is so tiny that it perfectly lends itself to getting grafted into unsuspecting pieces of consumer tech. But we see far fewer projects that manage to do the same trick with proper x86 PC hardware, but thats not much of a surprise either given how much larger a motherboard and its components are.

So this PC built into a Super Nintendo case by [NoshBar] is something of a double rarity. Not only does it ditch the plodding Raspberry Pi for a Mini-ITX Intel i5 computer, but it manages to fit it all in so effortlessly that you might think the PAL SNES case was designed by a time traveler for this express purpose. The original power switch and status LED are functional, and you can even pop open the cart slot for some additional airflow.

[NoshBar] started by grinding off all the protruding bits on the inside of the SNES case with a Dremel, and then pushed some bolts through the bottom to serve as mounting posts for the ASUS H110T motherboard. With a low profile Noctua CPU cooler mounted on top, it fits perfectly within the consoles case. There was even enough room inside to add in a...

Very interesting.


It is possible for a computer to become conscious. Basically, we are that. We are data, computation, memory. So we are conscious computers in a sense.

If the universe is a computer simulation, virtual reality, or video game, then a few unusual conditions seem to necessarily fall out from that reading. One is what we call consciousness, the mind, is actually something like an artificial intelligence. If the universe is a computer simulation, we are all likely one form of AI or another. In fact, we might come from the same computer that is creating this simulated universe to begin with. If so then it stands to reason that we are virtual characters and virtual minds in a virtual universe.
