Eliot Weinberger: Ten (More) Days in America "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

On Brett Kavanaughs first day as justice, the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal to a ruling written by Kavanaugh himself in 2017 when he was an appellate court judge. Kavanaugh had determined that the EPA lacked the authority under the Clean Air Act to enforce an Obama administration rule regulating hydrofluorocarbons, industrial chemicals that deplete the ozone. (And so it begins.)

Meehan Crist: Am I My Mother-in-Law? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Before I got pregnant, I thought I understood how DNA works: parents pass on some combination of their DNA, which codes for various heritable traits, to their children, who pass on some combination to their children, and so on down the neat branching lines of the genealogical tree. What I didnt know was that women can also receive DNA from their children.

Christopher Tayler: The Psychologicals "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

On the one hand, its clearly part of Anna Burnss project in Milkman to redescribe the Troubles without using such terms as the Troubles, Britain and Ireland, Protestant and Catholic, RUC and IRA. On the other, the narrators mad, first-principles language, with its abundance of phrases in inverted commas and sudden changes of register, is also used to describe the inner world of a young woman with no idea whom to tell, and no templates for what she might say, when shes stalked and groomed by a powerful older man. The public-political and the personal-political arent easily disentangled, and theres no reason that they should be. But the plot complicates the readers and the narrators sense of the way they interact.

Nico Muhly: How I Write Music "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The primary task, I feel, is to create a piece of art that is better than the same amount of silence; I would prefer to sit silently thinking for ten minutes than to listen to certain pieces of music, and therefore feel that it is my duty as a composer to occupy the time of the listener and the musicians with something challenging, engaging and emotionally alluring. I dont want to play them a movie with a clear exposition, obvious climax and poignant conclusion, nor do I want to drop them blind into a bat cave of aggressively perplexing musical jabs. I try to create an environment that suggests motion but that doesnt insist on certain things being felt at certain times. Mapping the pieces route helps me avoid the temptation of the romantic journey or the provocateurs dungeon.

Farmers Market Wayville "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

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

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

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

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

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

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

A feminist ethics of care "IndyWatch Feed National"

Theres an emphasis on self-empowerment within contemporary feminism which I think is hugely important. But I also think that the idea of self-empowerment can become tangled up in capitalisms consumer culture, and social media-driven narcissism, in ways that can warp it into an aggressive individualism. The kind of thinking Im referring to privileges the right to do whatever one wants to do for themselves over anything resembling genuine and thoughtful care for other people.

Cat Runs Outside His House Every Morning To Greet His Favorite Neighbor "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A man named Dan and his wife were out walking around the neighborhood they had just moved into one afternoon when an orange cat suddenly came wandering up to them. He was incredibly friendly, and approached the couple without any fear or hesitation. At that point, they had no idea whose cat he was or where he had come from, and had no way of knowing just how often they would end up seeing him in the years to come. 

He demanded our attention and didnt want us to leave until he was finished cheek-marking and receiving well-deserved pets, Dan, who asked that his last name not be included, told The Dodo. He was clearly well cared for and just the friendliest, sweetest cat you could meet. 

Credit: Dan

The couple soon learned that the cats name was Bosco, and he belonged to a family who lived in the neighborhood. Since Bosco was so social and curious, his family had installed a cat door for him so he could go out and greet all of his neighbors whenever he felt like it. 

Dan works very close to home, and started seeing Bosco nearly every day as he walked to work. Two years later, Bosco still runs out of his house or yard to greet his favorite neighbor almost every time he passes by. 

Credit: Dan

On days that the weather is nice, I see him every morning, Dan said. I also walk home on my lunch break and will typically see him resting on his neighbors front porch. If I call his name, he wakes up and comes to see me immediately. Then on my way home sometimes hes out there waiting in the flower garden.

Why I'll Be At the Womens March on the Pentagon This Weekend "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Why I'll Be At the Womens March on the Pentagon This Weekend

Authors
bruce Thu, 10/18/2018 - 07:49

Its three weeks till the midterm election. In Georgia where I live the big contest is between Brian Kemp, the secretary of state, in charge of administering his own election for governor, and Democrat Stacey Abrams. Kemp is a longtime fixture in Georgia politics, an out and out racist who has purged hundreds of thousands of voters from the states rolls in the last several years, the latest a block of 53,000, about 70% of them African American voters. Abrams, who if she wins will be the states first black and first woman governor, has been the leader of Georgia Democrats in that states House of Representatives since 2011.

Im personally and politically way over the notion that electing black faces to high places makes things better for ordinary African Americans. Its good for the careers of those elected, for their investor-contributors and a narrow circle of people around them. But it just doesnt elevate the situation of ordinary black people. Its been tried again and again, and it just hasnt panned out that way, so I cant get excited about electing the first black governor. I aint mad at those who believe this lie, or even at those who tell it. I must have believed it once upon a time too, decades ago, my salary depended on it, and I certainly spent a good piece of the 80s and 90s helping sell this mistaken notion to others.

The Greens are not allowed on the ballot in Georgia, thanks to the politicians of both parties who dont want the competition. So while the Republicans are busy disenfranchising people, and the Democrats are herding people onto buses for early voting, Ill be in DC this weekend with Ajamu Baraka and Cindy Sheehan and others for the Womens March on the Pentagon. There are some things were allowed to vote for, when were allowed to vote at all, and some others we are not.

Still Reports 2018 Election Prediction, v 1 0, 2408 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

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

Cops Encounter A Runaway Pig Then Find The Key To His Heart "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Crime may not pay but in this recent case involving an adorably delinquent pig, it did cost one California law enforcement officer her lunch.

On Sunday, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department received a call alerting them to the curly-tailed culprit. The pig, described as being "the size of a mini horse," had evidently escaped from home and was now trotting through a neighborhood like he owned the place.

The two responding deputies were easily able to track down the runaway animal, but gaining his compliance took more than a little convincing.

Credit: San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department

Fortunately, the deputies had prior experience with the pig and already knew where he lives, so it was just a matter of escorting him back home. However, that was easier said than done.

The pig apparently wasn't eager to end his day of adventure on the lam well, not without getting something tasty in return. So the deputies hatched a plan: They offered the pig some chips from their lunch.

That got his attention.

Credit: San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department

From there, getting the pig home to his rightful place was simple.

"They made a trail and he followed," the sheriff's department wrote online.

The deputies had clearly found the key to the wayward pig's heart.

Thanks to the deputies' kindhearted approach to handling the unusual call, the situation was resolved peacefully for just the price of a snack a small price to pay for such an unforgettable incident.

Worried Bear Family Waits Nearby As People Help Confused Little Cub "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A man in Maryland was enjoying the crisp fall weather on his deck when he realized he was being watched. 

"I was working on the deck and turned around and saw mama bear and her two cubs on the lawn looking at me," Paul Morris told The Dodo. "By the time I got my phone out of my pocket to video they were running away." 

Credit: Paul Morris

From that vantage point, as the bear family fled toward the woods, Morris' surprising brush with native wildlife took a bit of an odd turn when he noticed something strange on the head of the second little cub, struggling to keep up with his family.  

"I noticed the last one had a jar or bucket on its head," Morris said. The thrilling sight turned into a dilemma about what to do about the cub who was obviously in terrible trouble.

"I was concerned," Morris said.

Credit: Paul Morris

Thankfully, Morris knew that there were people who could be trusted to handle such cases; he contacted the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), and people at the agency took on the job of tracking the cub.

Wildlife professionals didn't know, though, that it would be three whole days until they would be able to find him and his family.

Tips for an Information Security Analyst/Pentester career - Ep. 67: OSCP path and some considerations - What I did wrong and what I'd change "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

I've been studying for my OSCP certification over the last three months.

I've gone silent, because I'm in full OSCP mode and I'm totally absorbed by my study. 

However, I now feel the need, after all this time into the class and being close to the exam, to express some considerations.

I can't reveal too much about the lab machines and the exam, but I can nonetheless give some advice to who's thinking of approaching this certification.

OSCP general considerations

I won't spend a lot of words about what OSCP is and how to achieve it.

Too many people have already talked about this topic way too much for me to further add to it.

I only need to remark the acronym stands for Offensive Security Certified Professional.

For you to achieve this certification, you need to go through the Penetration Testing with Kali Linux (PWK) class.


As for the OSCP exam, rules are different than the lab, in that they're way stricter (see here: https://support.offensive-security.com/#!oscp-exam-guide.md)

Hands-on tips

  • Metasploit can be utilized only once in the exam, so get used to help it in the lab. You can use Metasploit and Meterpreter on a single machine of your choice, while you can freely use msfvenom and multi/handler. Moreoever, if your payload doesn't work on a machine, you can't use it anymore in the exam.
    My take on this is you guys should learn how to exploit machines without it. Yes, you'll go much slower but you'll learn much more. Additionally, I often have better results with manual exploits than with Metasploit modules, as the latter ones work only if specific conditions are met. I found this useful post on this topic that I warmly recommend you to check. The logic behind OSCP exam is to enumerate and recon way more in depth, in order to learn finding and sensing what vulnerable services can be exploited, not to use automated tools with a set-and-forget approach. With that being said, in a real-world engagement you surely wanna use Metasploit and Meterpreter any time you can. OSCP exam goals don't always match with the goals of a real-world pentest.

1670 Nova May Have Been Caused by a Collision Between a White Dwarf and a Brown Dwarf "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

When white dwarf meets brown dwarf, pow!

In the 1600s, western astronomers were just emerging from centuries of medieval thought, when the heavens were thought to be unchanging. You can imagine their astonishment when in July of 1670, in what had been a blank, dark sky some observers witnessed a bright pinprick of light that appeared, faded, reappeared, and then disappeared entirely from view. At that time, astronomers called such an event a nova or new star. This one was located in front of the constellation Cygnus the Swan and so received the name Nova sub Capite Cygni (a New Star below the Head of the Swan). Modern astronomers have learned it wasn't a new star. It wasn't even a spectacular collision of two main-sequence stars, as announced in 2015. Instead, using data from the ALMA telescope in Chile, astronomers now believe the event was a collision between an aging white dwarf star and a brown dwarf (star with too little mass to ignite thermonuclear fusion and thereby shine as most stars do).

The object in question is now called CK Vulpeculae.

The new work is based on observations with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in northern Chile. The astronomers studied the debris from this explosion, which takes the form of dual rings of dust and gas resembling an hourglass with a compact central object (see image at top). Sumner Starrfield of Arizona State University is a co-author on a paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. He said in a statement:

It now seems what was observed centuries ago was not what we would today describe as a classic 'nova.' Instead, it was the merger of two stellar objects, a white dwarf and a brown dwarf. When these two objects collided, they spilled out a cocktail of molecules and unusual isotopes, which gave us new insights into the nature of this object.

Brown and white dwarf stars.

Family Dumps Loyal Dog At Shelter Because Theyre Having Another Baby "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Stormy is the perfect family dog. Hes good with kids, hes good with dogs, hes good with cats. Hes gentle and affectionate and playful. But when his family had a fifth baby, they decided he didnt belong anymore.

He spent all of his life with a family with four children, two [other] dogs one small, one big and a cat, Alana Guerrini, a volunteer and foster carer for Eleventh Hour Rescue, told The Dodo. Then the woman got pregnant and had her fifth baby, and decided that he was too much.

Credit: Facebook/Julie Carner

Stormy, who used to be called Freshy, ended up at a busy Brooklyn shelter with a very high euthanasia rate.

You could see the fear and terror in his eyes in that picture [at the shelter], and you could see how brokenhearted he was, Guerrini said. I looked at that face, and it absolutely crushed me.

Luckily for Stormy, Guerrini spotted his profile and hurried to get him out  but it was a close call, she said.

He was due to be put down at 5 oclock, and it was 4:58 or 4:59 when we got the word that Well let you take him, and hes officially yours and off of death row, Guerrini said.

Use Nodes to Code Loads of G-code for 3D CNC Carving "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Most CNC workflows start with a 3D model, which is then passed to CAM software to be converted into the G-code language that CNC machines love and understand. G-code, however, is simple enough that rudimentary coding skills are all you need to start writing your very own programmatic CNC tool paths. Any language that can output plain text is fully capable of enabling you to directly control powerful motors and rapidly spinning blades.

[siemenc] shows us how to use Grasshopper  a visual node-based programming system for Rhino 3D to output G-code that makes some interesting patterns and shapes in wood when fed to a ShopBot. Though the Rhino software is a bit expensive and thus is not too widely available, [siemenc] walks through some background, theory, and procedures that could be useful and inspirational no matter what software or programming language youre using to create your bespoke G-code.

Rose City Antifa Statement Against the Proposed City Ordinance "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The post Rose City Antifa Statement Against the Proposed City Ordinance appeared first on It's Going Down.

A statement from Rose City Antifa rejecting the recent proposal by the city government to force protesters into free speech zones controlled by the State.

Ted Wheelers proposed city ordinance comes after more than a year of far-right street violence enabled and enacted by Patriot Prayer; it has little to do with keeping our community safe, and much more to do with cracking down on community defense against dangerous far-right groups. The idea of free speech zones, segregating protesters according to the whims of politically compromised police leadership, has been tried on multiple occasions, and with clearly disturbing results. This city must not, and our community will not, be duped by false neutrality.

On June 4, 2017, the Portland Police Bureau confined anti-fascist activists to Chapman Square under threat of arrest. After corralling them, the police attacked these demonstrators using chemical weapons and explosives, driving them into the streets of downtown Portland. The police then formed a kettle around the remaining anti-fascists and numerous members of the media who had also fled, illegally detaining and subsequently searching hundreds of people, photographing their IDs before allowing them to leave. In the year following this clear violation of protesters rights, a class action suit was filed against the Portland Police, and yet they still have not publicly established that they have properly disposed of the photos they took of protesters identification.

The powers that be in this city may wish to rule over a community living in fear of attack by racist gangs, but our community will never allow that sort of political terror to reign, whether it is at the hands of cops or nationalist militias.

On August 4, 2018, the Portland Police Bureau again trapped anti-fascist community defense groups on numerous downtown streets and sidewalks, under threat of arrest, while giving white nationalist demonstrators free reign on the waterfront and in the streets. Then, after confining the anti-fascist counter-protest on SW Columbia, the police attacked the crowd of over one thousand people with explosives, seriously injuring several. Universally, the media recorded that the police lied about the pretext for their attack. The police then allowed the white nationalists to advance through the streets of downtown and pick off remaining anti-fascists. In one instan...

Womens Group Lodges Complaint Against Dem Senator Tom Carper Over Past Abuse Admission (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A womens group lodged a complaint against Senator Tom Carpers (D-DE) this week over his past admission of abuse.

Senator Carper previously admitted to hitting his wife so hard that it left her with a black eye.

Like every Democrat, Carper is a hypocrite.

The Delaware Senator arrogantly voted against Brett Kavanaughs confirmation over uncorroborated claims of sexual misconduct.

But hes allowed to beat his wife and serve as Senator because it happened a long time ago and he has since apologized

The womens group says its time for the double standard and hypocrisy to end.

OANNs Jack Posobiec has the story:

Senator Carper initially lied about beating his wife. He was later forced to come clean about it.

Free Beacon reported:

Delaware senator Tom Carper admitted to slapping his wife in a 1998 interview with a veteran political journalist in the state, confirming an accusation he denied when first running for Congress.

Carper represented Delaware first in the House, then was elected governor in 1993, and has been in the Senate since 2001. He fought the accusation that he hit his wife when it first emerged during his 1982 run for Congress, saying it was without basis in fact and pledging to sue the New York Post, which first...

How did a disinformation campaign using psychic spies turn out? Did they use remote viewing? If so, why are people lead to disbelieve in people who claim they have psychic gifts when the government was using these very gifts in some of their highest level operations?

We have talked a lot about big pharma on this show and today we discuss the business and corruption behind cancer. As an oncology nurse and research clinician, John has first hand experience in this arena. What will he share with us on how certain drugs are pushed? What will he share with us regarding clinical studies?

And of course it wouldnt be a show without some good ol humor splashed in and so we will discuss many more topics on reptilian escape routes, the history of chemtrails and the power of our consciousness based on individual and group effects.

Melanie Reid at Newsroom: Ross and the Women "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

It has been reported that Simon Bridges and Paula Bennett had met with Jami-Lee Ross to discuss concerns over inappropriate behaviour for a married man. Some have said it was wrong for National to say this and for Paula Bennett to comment to the media on this. Winston Peters stoked the fires on this as well, as reported by the NZ Herald

This morning Melanie Reid, at Newsroom, has a substantive piece on Ross and his relations with women. Note the first sentence. Ms Reid has been pursuing this story for the past year. This is not an article put together as a rapid response to Rosss allegations. Unlike some of the accusations on Twitter:-

Over the past year, Newsroom investigations editor Melanie Reid has been looking into the background and behaviour of former National MP Jami-Lee Ross. She has talked to a number of people who have given detailed accounts, recordings and documents of their close working and personal relationships with the controversial politician.

Some felt manipulated and intimidated by the way he goes about his politics and his social interactions. Others felt pressured not to speak out.

"A Dog's Purpose?" (From A 6 Year Old)
Posted by Thegreenman

"Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.

"Heaven and Hell"
by Paulo Coelho

"A man, his horse and his dog were traveling down a road. When they were passing by a gigantic tree, a bolt of lightning struck and they all fell dead on the spot. But the man did not realize that he had already left this world, so he went on walking with his two animals; sometimes the dead take time to understand their new condition

The journey was very long, uphill, the sun was strong and they were covered in sweat and very thirsty. They were desperately in need of water. At a bend in the road they spotted a magnificent gateway, all in marble, which led to a square paved with blocks of gold and with a fountain in the center that spouted forth crystalline water. The traveler went up to the man guarding the gate.

Good morning. What is this beautiful place? This is heaven. How good to have reached heaven, were ever so thirsty. You can come in and drink all you want. My horse and my dog are thirsty too. So sorry, but animals arent allowed in here.

The man was very disappointed because his thirst was great, but he could not drink alone; he thanked the man and went on his way. After traveling a lot, they arrived exhausted at a farm whose entrance was marked with an old doorway that opened onto a tree-lined dirt road.

Coal seam gas needs tighter controls in NSW "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Greens have condemned the paltry fine given to gas company Santos for not having appropriate approval for using treated coal seam gas water and called for an increase in penalties for breaches of licences or misconduct.

NSW Greens MLC and Resources spokesperson Jeremy Buckingham said, Santos has today received an inadequate fine for using treated water from its Narrabri coal seam gas operations for irrigation at Leewood without the appropriate approval.

In practice, a $1,500 fine is a slap-on-the-wrist for a big gas company like Santos who see the weak penalties for breaches as merely another cost of doing business.

AGLs attempts to irrigator saline treated coal seam gas water at Gloucester ended in failure. The Santos attempts, even if legalised, will also end in failure.

In the United States, they call irrigating land with coal seam gas water land farming. They basically contaminate the land and let salt tolerant weeds grow.

There are serious questions that remain unanswered about the use of coal seam gas in NSW. The safe disposal of the large amounts of salt and wastewater generated by coal seam gas operations is a massive issue and one companies like Santos have yet to be resolved.

The regulation of coal seam gas is not up to scratch in NSW, with this breach at Narrabri the latest in a long line of breaches and pollution incidents involving various coal seam gas projects.

The Greens call on the Government not to grant any approval for the use of treated coal seam gas water until it can be proven safe and for an increase in penalties for breaches of licences or lack of appropriate approvals, he said.

"Death In The Afternoon" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Death In The Afternoon"
by The Zman

"I had to put the cat down on Saturday afternoon. It was a sad thing, of course, as it always is when you have to say goodbye to a pet. The cat was diagnosed as a diabetic a few weeks back, which is not unusual with dogs and cats these days. It is a treatable condition, that is easier to manage in animals than humans. Your animal is not going to cheat on its diet or forget to take its insulin. With a little discipline and the willingness to master a few medical skills, you can manage a diabetic pet with little trouble.

On Friday night, the cat took a turn for the worse, so I went into the vet not entirely sure what to expect. They took blood and sent me home with some instructions. I figured they were humoring me, so I spent the night making my peace with what I expected was coming. The next day I learned, after further examination, that the cat had a rare type of cancer that was the real cause of the diabetes. They found tumors on his pancreas, which is not treatable, so I made the decision to put the poor thing out of his suffering.

While waiting to see the vet on Saturday, a woman I know came into the office. She was there to say goodbye to her dog. Apparently they called her with the bad news and she came into to complete the process. That was my guess anyway. The girl at the desk seemed to know what to do, despite the fact the woman was sobbing uncontrollably. She sat down on the bench next to me. Out of instinct, I guess, I dont know, I slid over and put my arm around her. She collapsed against me into a mess of tears and wailing.

Greens Takedown Their Own MP Jeremy Buckingham Over Multiple Defamation Threats "IndyWatch Feed National"

Greens NSW has issued a rare public rebuke to one of its own elected members amid revelations the MP has directed multiple legal threats against party members, despite publicly calling for defamation laws to be reformed so that politicians cant abuse them.

In 2015, Greens MLC Jeremy Buckingham and radio shock-jock Alan Jones were sued by then Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner for comments they made in the course of anti-coal seam gas campaigning.

The lawsuit was eventually dropped, prompting Mr Buckingham to publicly call for sweeping changes to defamation laws.

Australia is a robust democracy and criticism of public representatives is an important part of our democratic system. There should be a much higher bar set for politicians to sue for defamation, such as what exists in the United States, he said at the time.

Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham, pictured with Sydney shock-jock Alan Jones. Both were the subject of a defamation action launched by Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner in 2014.

But since then, Mr Buckingham has issued legal threats against at least four current or former members of his own party, three of which are centred around recent allegations that Mr Buckingham sexually assaulted a former Greens staffer, Ella Buckland in 2011.

Mr Buckingham strongly denies the allegations, although Ms Buckland is standing by her claims.

One of those being sued is Tom Raue, the Greens NSW candidate for the seat of Summer Hill. It appears to be unprecedented in NSW political history for a member of a political party to be suing colleagues in the shadow of an upcoming state election.

The fourth legal threat issued by Mr Buckingham just over a year after his public criticisms of defamation laws was against a teenager who described Mr Buckingham as a massive fucking hypocrite in a closed Facebook forum...

The Ford Foundation and the CIA: A Documented Case of Philanthropic Collaboration with the Secret Police "IndyWatch Feed World"

The CIA uses philanthropic foundations as the most effective conduit to channel large sums of money to Agency projects without alerting the recipients to their source. From the early 1950s to the present the CIA's intrusion into the foundation field was/and is huge.

by James Petras

A U.S. Congressional investigation in 1976 revealed that nearly 50% of the 700 grants in the field of international activities by the principal foundations were funded by the CIA (Saunders, pp. 134-135). The CIA considers foundations such as Ford "The best and most plausible kind of funding cover" (Saunders 135).

The collaboration of respectable and prestigious foundations, according to one former CIA operative, allowed the Agency to fund "a seemingly limitless range of covert action programs affecting youth groups, labor unions, universities, publishing houses and other private institutions" (p. 135).

China Plans To Launch Its Own Artificial Moon By 2020 "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

City of Chengdu unveils plans to replace streetlights with a satellite that boosts glow of real moon

Move over sun simulator, China is launching an artificial moon into space  way what??

The official story is that if theres an approval for the artificial moon, called an illumination satellite, theyre hoping to launch it into space in order to save money on street lighting and also increase tourism by illuminating the streets.

According to Asia Times,

The satellite would be able to light an area with a diameter of 10 to 80 kilometers, while the precise illumination range can be controlled within a few dozen meters, according to the Peoples Daily, which quoted a developer with the Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute as saying.

The paper added that testing the illumination satellite started years ago and all the technology and design had been finalized.

The man-made moon has a highly reflective coating to reflect light from the sun with solar panel-like wings whose angles can be adjusted to realize precise lighting. The 14,300-square-meter city of Chengdu would be the primal focus of the light from the man-made moon, and astronomers throughout China and overseas should be able to spot the glowing star at night.

But no further specifications of the spacecraft, or its launch date, were available.

Chengdu officials expect the city to reel in more tourists when the artificial moon is up and shining.

It's odd. I've been around politicians. I know they can be coarse of language, and that they try to bend rules within legal bounds.

Why then am I surprised, even shocked by Simon Bridges comportment?

ANC: PERESTROIKA, PARTY RENEWAL & REVOLUTIONARY MORALITY
Posted on 13th October 2018
ANC Today

Of the epoch-making events in our countrys history, President Nelson Mandelas statement from the dock in the 1964 Rivonia trial is widely accepted to be amongst the finest examples of political oratory of the 20th century.

Although its powerful denouement, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die is most widely cited, it is at the very beginning that he outlines his motivation for becoming involved in the struggle for his countrys liberation.

Paying homage to South Africas illustrious ancestors, he called on the names of Bambata, of Hintsa, of Sekhukhuni, and proclaimed: I hoped then that life might offer me the opportunity to serve my people and make my own humble contribution to their freedom struggle this is what has motivated me in all that I have done in relation to the charges made against me..

Serving his people with humility was a hallmark of the revolutionary morality exhibited by one of the greatest revolutionaries of our time; a man who despite his immense stature, was guided not by a quest for recognition, nor for material gain but by wanting to do his small part. 

As we mark the centenary of the birth of this great leader, the African National Congress and indeed the country, is at another epoch in our history.

Africas oldest liberation movement has embarked upon a new path of unity, organizational renewal and accelerated socio-economic transformation.

It has at its core a recommitment to the founding values of our glorious movement; to being a party rooted among the people, representing their interests, concerns and aspirations, transforming society and developing every community.

This necessitates, as we said at the 54th National Conference, a readiness and willingness of our members to serve, and make sacrifices in pursuit of the cause of the people as a whole.

This moral ideal that sublimates self-interest to the pursuit of the greater good, does not apply only to the leadership of our movement, but to each and every member in each and every community.

It is a powerful and transformative impetus that sees every me...

PLACING SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION AT THE CENTRE OF OUR DEVELOPMENT AGENDA
Posted on 13th October 2018

It is now more than twenty years since the adoption of the 1996 White Paper on Science and Technology. Though the country has shown good progress in the implementation of the 1996 White Paper, however, South Africa has yet to fully realise the potential of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) to advance the objectives of the National Development Plan (NDP). The gains realised in the period since 1996 include the expansion of the STI, a three-fold increase in publications, significant growth in the participation of black people and women in the research and development workforce, and a rise in doctoral graduation rates. However, challenges remain. The National System of Innovation (NSI) is still not fully inclusive, and since 1996 South Africas innovation performance (measured in patents and products) has been relatively flat.

According to recent reviews, the main factors constraining NSI performance are the inadequate and non-collaborative means of STI agenda setting for the country, insufficient policy coherence and coordination, weak partnerships between NSI actors (particularly the insufficient involvement of business and civil society), inadequate monitoring and evaluation, inadequate high-level science, engineering and technical skills for the economy, a too small research system, a poor environment for innovation, and significant levels of underfunding.

As the department of science and technology, we are responsible for ensuring that the NSI improves its performance. This means that together with all the stakeholders we have to confound all the constraints that are limiting our NSI performance. It is against this background that we are finalising a new White Paper on Science, Technology and Innovation, and have commissioned the National Advisory Council on Innovation to work on a framework for a new decadal plan. The premise of our new White Paper is that science, technology and innovation are central to inclusive and sustainable development for shaping a different South Africa. But most importantly, the White Paper recognises that inclusivity is central to the national system of innovation, in ter...

Benefits of foreign ownership "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

What a very generous donation:

Secretive American-born billionaire Ken Dart plans to donate the popular and sprawling Wairoa Gorge Bike Park, near Nelson, to the Crown.

It will be managed by the Department of Conservation, with public access run through the Nelson Mountain Bike Club (NMTBC).

He has also sold South Canterburys 4046-hectare Lilydale Station, which includes the land used by Fox Peak Ski Field, to local conservationists.

The 860-hectare Wairoa Gorge will be donated to the Crown by the end of the year, to be managed as a conservation reserve. Dart bought the land in 2010 through his company RHL Holdings and had more than 70km of mountainbike trails built through the mixed native beech and plantation pine forest. . .

Medtronic Locks Out Vulnerable Pacemaker Programmer Kit "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Submitted via IRC for BoyceMagooglyMonkey

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising health professionals to keep an eye on some of the equipment they use to monitor pacemakers and other heart implants.

The watchdog's alert this week comes after Irish medical device maker Medtronic said it will lock some of its equipment out[pdf] of its software update service, meaning the hardware can't download and install new code from its servers.

That may seem counterintuitive, however, it turns out security vulnerabilities in its technology that it had previously thought could only be exploited locally could actually be exploited via its software update network. Malicious updates could be pushed to Medtronic devices by hackers intercepting and tampering with the equipment's internet connections the machines would not verify they were actually downloading legit Medtronic firmware and so the biz has cut them off.

To get the latest patches, the software will have to be installed by hand via USB by a Medtronic technician. Both the FDA and Medtronic said there is no immediate danger to any patients or doctors.

The security bugs are not present in the implants themselves, but rather in Medtronic "programmers," which doctors and medics connect to patients' implants during and after surgery, allowing them to check battery levels, monitor heart rhythms, and adjust any settings.

[...] As a result, Medtronic said, it has cut both device models' access to the SDN, meaning the only way for hospitals and clinics to get firmware updates will be on-site by Medtronic techs. In the meantime, the FDA said the devices will continue to operate as normal and no immediate action needs to be taken.

In short, nobody's pacemaker is getting hacked any time soon, and doctors and patients have nothing to worry about, but updating the programmers is going to be a bit of a pain.

Midterm 2018 TENNESSEE: Marsha Blackburn vs. Phil Bredesen "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Tennessee has a real choice to make.

Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn is running against former Democrat Governor Phil Bredesen for the US Senate.

Blackburn is 100% conservative and a favorite of President Donald J. Trump.

Bredesen is a worn out old timer Governor with backing from Hollywood and big money from out of state. Taylor Swift did endorse him.

Marsha Blackburn would be the first woman ever to represent the State of Tennessee in the US Senate.

The Democrats have not won since Al Gore in 1980.

Philip Bredesen would be the next Al Gore.

Dont let them win.

The State is solidly Republican and not a Purple State. Blackburn should win if voters turn out.

Its not finished until its finished but Blackburn is surging.

This Senate race has been called the most important in the country.

All eyes are on Tennessee.

The Democratic Party is not popular in Tennessee for a reason. Bredesen IS a Democrat.

He may waffle and try to couch his terms but he would vote with Chuck Schumer 100% of the time.

He was a Clintonista and detests Trump.

Blackburn on the other hand supports the Republican majority and would have voted FOR Judge Kavanaugh.

She is for due process while her opponent couldnt even decide what he was for.

Marsha Blackburn will make a GREAT Senator for Tennessee.

TREASURY: RECESSION, FALLING REVENUE DENT SAS PUBLIC FINANCES
DG Dondo Mogajane said Treasury was preparing to implement structural and regulatory reforms to enhance growth.

Treasurys Director-General Dondo Mogajane. Picture: @SAgovnews/Twitter

Reuters

CAPE TOWN - South Africa will struggle to finance the public services that form the largest part of its budget due to falling revenues and an economic recession, the National Treasury told lawmakers on Tuesday.

Africas most industrialised economy slipped into recession in the second quarter for the first time in nearly a decade and faced the political uncertainty that caused turmoil in its currency and financial markets over its finance minister.

The contraction of our public finances is placing tremendous stress on us and our ability to finance public services and this threatens the affordability of planned expenditure, Treasurys Director-General Dondo Mogajane told a parliamentary committee.

Mogajane said Treasury was preparing to implement structural and regulatory reforms to enhance growth and would be sticking to the fiscal sustainability promises it made in the February budget. It was not clear when the reforms would be introduced.

President Cyril Ramaphosa last week appointed Tito Mboweni as the countrys fourth finance minister in two years, replacing Nhlanhla Nene who admitted to having meetings with the business family at the centre of alleged corruption.

The move to appoint the former governor of the central bank to head Treasury was well received by financial markets, but the focus will remain on Ramaphosas ability to jumpstart growth, deliver jobs and close the huge budget deficits that have brought the country to the brink of rating downgrades to junk.

The revenue gap in the 2017/18 fiscal year that runs to end-March ballooned to R50.8 billion as the revenue agency missed Treasurys collection target, putting pressure on the governments already stretched finances.

Treasury warned in September that it may also see a shortfall in revenue collection in the current fiscal year.

Mboweni is due to present the medium-term budget speech next Wednesday.

#RANDREPORT: RAND FIRMS AS INVESTORS CHASE RISKIER ASSETS, STOCKS UP
At 1550 GMT the rand was 1.36% stronger at 14.1750 per dollar, up from a session best of 14.1450.

Reuters

JOHANNESBURG - South Africas rand firmed against a softer dollar on Tuesday, its strongest since the start of the month, in line with other emerging-market currencies which have slowly restored gains after recent sharp losses.

Stocks tracked global markets higher with banks leading gains aided by the stronger local currency.

At 1550 GMT the rand was 1.36% stronger at 14.1750 per dollar, up from a session best of 14.1450.

The rand has gained more than 1% since 1 October, as the US dollar index dropped to more than two-week lows on Tuesday.

The rand is tracking the direction driven by external factors and the softer dollar, which has provided emerging markets some gains, said ETM economist Halen Bothma.

The delayed decision of the Moodys ratings review buoyed the rand to its strongest in a week on Monday, as it is now only expected after the medium-term budget policy statement (MTBPS) next week, Dondo Mogajane, the director general of the National Treasury said on Tuesday.

Moodys rates South Africas foreign and local currency debt on their lowest investment grade rung of Baa3, with a stable outlook.

Government bonds were weaker, with the yield on the benchmark paper due in 2026 up 0.5 basis points to 9.165%.

In equities, the blue-chip top-40 index rose 1.54% to 47,007 points. The all-share index was 1.48% firmer at 53,241 points.

Global markets were calmer, with emerging markets taking a breather from the risk-off sentiment on expectations that Saudi Arabia will acknowledge the death of a missing journalist.

We still need to see some consolidation in the markets after the big moves seen recently, said Vasili Girasis, equities trader at BP Bernstein.

Banks were 3.74% higher on the back of a stronger rand, led by FirstRand which jumped 4.74%to R63.70.

Banks and retailers have certainly benefited from the stronger rand. There are also some buying opportunities from the low levels that a lot of stocks reached, said Girasis.

Small Donors Suddenly Pour In to Flip Eight State-Level Seats and Legislatures "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Kristin Bahner and her campaign manager, Taylor Winkel, were out knocking on doors Tuesday night, as they have been most nights as part of their bootstrap bid to flip a Minnesota legislative seat and potentially flip the state House from red to blue.

As they wrapped up, Winkel told Bahner that they should go over the campaigns finances that night. With two weeks until Election Day, they didnt want to leave anything untapped.

They later connected by phone and, after looking through their books, decided that they had enough to hire a canvasser at 15 hours a week, or perhaps spend a bit on digital advertising. It wasnt much, but with an expected voter turnout of 20,000, every little bit counts.

But then Winkel had a thought: Wait, she told Bahner, we havent checked Act Blue since Friday. Bahner logged on to the platform that processes small donations.

I look at it and I go, Is that a typo? That cant be right, Bahner said she told Winkel.

Winkel responded, Well, I did send out a newsletter and make a fundraising pitch.

No, Taylor, I think this is a little more than our average fundraising letter, Bahner recalled saying. I dug into the reporting feature which gives details of each contribution and Im like, Holy cow, this is literally a Minnesota miracle.

Winkel took a look for herself, and sure enough, thousands of dollars were flooding in from across the country. Bahner looked closer at who was giving. An engineer from NASA. A nurse manager in Seattle. A floor worker from Best Buy. A retiree from Ohio.

Bahners campaign in Minnesotas 34B District, it turned out, was the beneficiary of a project put together by Data for Progress, a scrappy left-wing think tank that operates outside the orbit of the Democratic Party. Earlier on Tuesday, the group had suggested on Twitter that if progressives wanted to give smart, they should donate to eight state legislative campaigns around the country where the winner could tip the balance of power in the chamber. Contributors have the option of equally splitting their donations eight ways, or deciding how much to allocate to each of the candidates.

Stocks were down with Healthcare group Mediclinic hitting a session-low of 19% on an expected downturn in its first-half earnings.

At 1617 GMT, the rand was 0.4% stronger at 14.1150 per dollar versus 14.1700 overnight in New York.

South Africas retail sales rose 2.5% year-on-year in August as household goods, clothing and cosmetics grew, with recovering consumer spending a possible sign the economy is climbing out of a recession that has piled pressure on President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Todays stronger-than-expected figures are encouraging and will boost third-quarter growth given that consumer spending accounts for about 60% of GDP, Nedbank said in a note.

The rand has been on the back foot following second-quarter gross domestic product data on 4 September which showed the economy had entered a recession.

Government bonds were flat, with the yield on the benchmark paper due in 2026 at 9.120%.

On the bourse, the All-Share index fell 1.6% to 52,391 points while the blue-chip Top-40 index fell 1.79% 46,164 points.

Healthcare group Mediclinic closed 16.9% down to R73.96 after it flagged an 8% drop in core profit for the first six months of the year. Its shares had tumbled 19% earlier in the session.

On the flip side, South African building materials retailer Cashbuild rose 0.17% to 258.89 after it reported revenue was up 3% in the first quarter compared with the year-ago period.

Ethiopia's Minister of Peace: The Country's Most Powerful Woman?
Abdur Rahman Alfa Shaban
Africa News

It was only last week when Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced the formation of a Ministry for Peace, at the time its mandate was said to be unclear.

Days on, the ministrys mandate has all but become clearer and handed to a history maker, Muferiat Kamil. Kamil, Ethiopias first woman speaker of parliament was named first Peace Minister in an equally historic cabinet.

Abiy presented a gender balanced cabinet to the House of Peoples Representatives, HPR, and had it duly approved. Muferiat was one of ten women on the cabinet with 10 male appointees completing the set.

Muferiat Kamil leads the Southern Ethiopia Peoples Democratic Movement (SEPDM) one of the constituent bodies of the ruling Ethiopian Peoples Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF).

She is also the sole female leader on the four-bloc coalition. When she was voted speaker back in April 2014, she replaced Abadula Gemeda of the Oromo bloc then OPDO now ODP, who had been in the role since 2010.

Ministry of Peace Ethiopias most powerful cabinet appointment?

Reports indicate that Muferiats role has a peace title but spans a high security structure. According to the Addis Standard portal, the Ministry of Peace will oversee the National Intelligence & Security Service (NISS).

The Information Network Security Agency (INSA); Federal Police Commission; & Finance Security & Information Center. It will also assume the roles of Federal & Pastoralist Development Affairs, the portal added.

It will further oversee: the National Disaster Risk Management Commission; the Administration for Refugee and Returnee Affairs; Ethiopian Foreign Relations Strategic Studies Institute; and the Main Department For Immigration & Nationality Affairs.

Abiy makes good a promise on gender parity

Back in April, one of the biggest issues raised by legislators during Abiys presentation of his cabinet was the absence of women on the list.

He promised that more women will be named in a subsequent list. Abiy seems just to have stuck to his word six months on.

Abiy became the first ethnic Oromo to become...

Eritrea, Ethiopia Foreign Ministers in Somalia for High-level Talks
Abdur Rahman Alfa Shaban
Africa News

Foreign Affairs Ministers of Eritrea and Ethiopia arrived in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Wednesday, October 17, for talks.

Somalias Foreign Affairs Minister Ahmed Isse Awad received his counterparts, Osman Saleh, Eritrea; and Workneh Gebeyehu, Ethiopia, on their arrival at the airport.

Reports indicate that the meeting will culminate in the meeting of leaders of the respective countries. It is seen as the latest sign of strengthening of relations across the Horn of Africa.

Political watchers say it is a boost for regional cooperation, diplomacy and security. There has been no date announced with respect to when Ethiopian Prime minister Abiy Ahmed and Eritreas Isaias Afwerki will be expected in town.

The last time the three ministers met in the region was in Asmara after their leaders signed a tripartite cooperation agreement. The trio were dispatched to Djibouti to mediate in soured relations between Eritrea and Djibouti.

Since the meeting between the ministers, Eritrean president Isaias Afwerki and Djiboutis Ismail Omar Guelleh have met under the auspices of the Saudi king to begin efforts at resolving their decade-long disagreement.

Away from the region, the trio also represented their countries at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly in New York. With a common theme of Eritrea sanctions lifting running across their address.

Do Some Voters Favor Cutting Medicare And Slashing Social Security? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




Ostensibly this ad is about the Florida gubernatorial race. But even if you've never set foot on Floridians soil, please watch it, because it's about where you live and where everyone in your family lives. Andrew Gillum is the progressive mayor of Tallahassee I've personally known for over 20 years-- which was why Blue America was able to endorse him on the day he declared he was running-- and Ron DeSantis is a far right Trumpist with a record in Congress for voting to cut Social Security and Medicare, just like virtually every Republican in the House.

Andrew's campaign, on releasing the ad Tuesday morning noted that "Its no surprise Ron DeSantis has refused to release a healthcare plan-- because his record is clear: slashing Medicare and Social Security and even to raising the retirement age. Ron DeSantis record speaks for itself and as governor, hed continue these attacks on hardworking Floridians. Ron DeSantis does not have Floridians best interest at heart, and he has shown it over and over again. Andrew Gillum has a vision for our state where Florida seniors can retire with dignity and Ron DeSantis is more worried about protecting billionaires; Ron DeSantis is wrong for Florida."

Like Andrew Gillum in Florida, Randy Bryce is seeing a flood of sewer money being used to smear him and destroy him as a person. No one has ever seen such a filthy campaign in Wisconsin.

HPR2664: My git workflow "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

My git workflow In this episode of HPR I present the workflow I use to contribute to opensource projects using git. I have no idea if this workflow is something that is commonly used, but it is working for me, so I thought Id share it with the HPR community. The first thing I do is fork the project I want to contribute to. This is done on github most of the time, although this workflow can work on gitlab, bitbucket, or even some self hosted git platform. Once the project is forked, I clone it on my machine : $ git clone git://server/path/to/myproject.git Git automatically names my remote project origin. Then I add a reference to the original project : $ git remote add upstream https://server/path/to/originalproject.git Now my local repository references my fork under the name origin and the original project under the name upstream. In this workflow, I never work on the master branch. So, when I need to fix a bug for example, I create a new branch : $ git checkout -b bugfix I can then make changes, test my code, make sure everything is ok, stage and commit my changes : $ git add . $ git commit -m "commit message" Now I need to push this local branch to my repository on github : $ git push -u origin bugfix Since I forked the original project, github knows that origin and upstream are linked. If there are no conflicts, github will show me a big green button to create a pull request. Once the pull request is created, I just have to wait for the maintainer to merge it in upstreams master branch. Then, I need to sync both my local copy and my fork on github with the original project. In order to do that, on my local copy, I checkout my master branch, fetch upstreams changes, and merge them : $ git checkout master $ git fetch upstream $ git merge upstream/master Now my local master branch is ahead of origins master branch, so I push those changes to github : $ git push I dont need the bugfix branches (the local one and the github one), so I can delete those : $ git branch -d bugfix $ git push origin -d bugfix And now, my local repository is even with both origin and upstream, and I can start again. To summarize, heres the complete workflow : $ git checkout -b myawesomefeature $ git add . $ git commit -m "Awesome commit message" $ git push -u origin myawesomefeature Create a pull request, wait for the maintainer to merge it. $ git checkout master $ git fetch upstream $ git merge upstream/master $ git push $ git branch -d myawesomefeature $ git push origin -d myawesomefeature

DR Congo Furious with Angola Over Violent Crackdown on Migrants
Reuters

Congos government condemned what it called the violent expulsion by Angolan authorities of thousands of Congolese citizens during a crackdown on artisanal diamond mining.

Congolese migrants and officials have said dozens of people were killed during a crackdown this month, an accusation Angola strongly denies.

The government condemns the human rights violations and the loss of human lives provoked by the expulsions, its spokesman Lambert Mende said in a statement.

The government condemns the human rights violations and the loss of human lives provoked by the expulsions.

Mende said about 28,000 Congolese had been brutally expelled, in violation of an agreement between the two countries on freedom of movement. Angolan officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but have previously denied abuses and said repatriations are voluntary.

Relations between DRC and Angola

The comments from Kinshasa will further increase tensions between the government of Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila and its erstwhile close ally. Two decades ago, Angola stepped in to rescue Kabilas father, then president Laurent Kabila, from a Rwandan-backed rebel assault.

But Angola has become frustrated by Kabilas handling of several crises, including instability caused by his failure to step aside when his mandate ended in 2016, and a conflict in Kasai province that sent thousands of DRC refugees over the border.

In interviews with Reuters, more than 20 Congolese migrants who crossed the border between October 4-12 described violence, looting and forced displacement by Angolan security forces and a local ethnic group called the Tshokwe.

Angola has in recent weeks stepped up efforts to tackle diamond smuggling and raise more revenue from the lucrative sector.

Succumb to Facebook & Twitters demands or get banned "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://www.rt.com/op-ed/441311-facebook-twitter-ban-dissident/

A recent purge by Facebook and Twitter of a host of independent media sites has pushed thousands of people out of work and has killed one of the most effective forms of expressing political dissent.

On Thursday last week, Facebook purged more than 800 pages and accounts, accusing them of engaging in inauthentic behaviour and violating Facebooks anti-spam policies.

According to a statement released by Facebook on its website, many of these pages were:

using fake accounts or multiple accounts with the same names and posted massive amounts of content across a network of Groups and Pages to drive traffic to their websites. Many used the same techniques to make their content appear more popular on Facebook than it really was. Others were ad farms using Facebook to mislead people into thinking that they were forums for legitimate political debate.

One of these pages was The Anti-Media, which I have worked for since mid-2016. Until the purge, we had some 2.17 million followers on Facebook. Supposedly, Facebook wants you to believe that 2.17 million people voluntarily signed up to our page just to receive all the spam content that we put out there (sounds realistic).

Shortly after Facebook unpublished our page, Twitter suspended our account as well.

Twitter did one better than Facebook, though, as it went one step further and suspended the accounts of our editors and many influential people who work on our team. Carey Wedler, Anti-Medias editor-in-chiefs Twitter account was suspended and yet Twitter could not even provide her with a valid reason for doing so.

I am not joking. In her notice of suspension, Twitter informed Wedler that her account, CareyWedler has been suspended for violating the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: and the specifically, for part of Twitters notice was left blank.

They literally could not even think of a reason; and yet they are for some reason not required to provide one.

The Financial Cost of Natural Disasters Around the World
Eric Oteng
THE MORNING CALL

Very often people assume it is only in Africa that worst natural disasters occur after the recent floods in northern Nigeria due to the Benue river breaking its bank.

A new report on natural disasters over the past 20 years by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction suggests Africa is not the continent when it comes to natural disasters wreaking havoc on people and the environment.

the report measured the economic impact of these disasters in relation to Gross Domestic Products countries affected by natural disasters.

The worst affected countries include Puerto Rico which lost 12.2% of its GDP to disasters, followed by Haiti with 17.5%, Honduras 7%, and Cuba with 4.6%. The Democratic Peoples Republic of Koreas annual losses represent 7.4% of its GDP.

The cost of natural disasters is impressive. That is still 20 years later: $2.9 trillion in recorded damages, four times the budget of the US army which is estimated at $610 billion.

On a human level, the bill is high. Over the past 20 years, 1.3 million people have lost their lives which is more than the population of Equatorial Guinea with 4.4 billion people injured as a result translating to 4 times the entire African population.

Home price gains since 2013 have been much less impressive than you think. While reports show that home prices have recovered nationwide, the increase has been uneven and not as strong as you have been led to believe.

Consider RealtyTracs latest report on 148 major U.S. metropolitan areas. The average gain on the sale of property was 30%. Not bad, except the average holding period was just over eight years. That comes to an annual price increase of 3.75%. High-yield corporate bonds would have earned you considerably more.

Israeli Ambassador to France Attempted to Censor Crippling of Gaza Youth Report "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Israeli Ambassador to France, Aliza bin Noun, attempted to suppress a report that aired on the France 2 TV channel last week. The investigative report delves into the crippling of young Gazans at the hands of Israeli sniper fire.

Watch the report below:


More on this story from Antiwar.com

Israeli Ambassador to France Aliza bin Noun is under fire for attempts to censor a news report on the situation in the Gaza Strip. The report aired on France 2, despite her demands that it never be aired.

The report, titled Gazas disabled teens, was an investigative story on Palestinian teens who had been crippled by Israeli sniper fire into the Gaza Strip. This included a number of teens who lost legs, and their difficulty in getting by on a single leg in the strip.

Bin Noun argued that the report on Israeli snipers shooting and crippling teenage civilians vilifies Israel and subsequently posed a threat to the French Jewish community. French newspaper Le Monde noted that no one at the Israeli Embassy had even seen the report before protesting that it would be aired, and that bin Noun complained Israel wasnt allowed to respond even though the Israeli military spokesman was interviewed in the report.

Israeli Embassy officials defend attacking the report without seeing it, saying it was obvious it would be one-sided. French media outlets, however, are attacking this as a cynical attempt by Israel to dictate the content of news media and undermining freedom of speech in France.

Royal Flush: Rain Soaks Drought Tour As Dubbo Cops Try To Shield Prince From Embarrassment Of Our Cruel Immigration Policies "IndyWatch Feed National"

He may be a direct descendant of the family that created the first wave of boat people to Australia, but according to Dubbo Police, Prince Harry shouldnt have to read about Australias cruel and inhumane immigration policies. At least not in the form of a protest banner in the main street of a country town. Chris Graham reports.

Dubbo is perhaps best known internationally for its world class open plains zoo. But yesterday, the eyes of the globe were on the iconic Australian country town for an entirely different reason the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (also known as Harry and Meghan) as part of their Royal Tour of Australia to support the Invictus Games (helpfully sponsored by major weapons manufacturers).

The newly wedded couple were in Dubbo to see first-hand the effects of the drought gripping large parts of NSW. That was somewhat spoilt by an untimely downpour, although in a few weeks time Dubbo and surrounds will likely be back where they started before the Brits brought the rain.

Even so, the wet didnt dampen the spirits of Dubbo residents (from an official population of 39,000, an estimated 30,000 turned out for a community barbecue). That job, at least in the minds of Dubbo Police, was left to local resident Laura Volkofsky, who decided to mark the visit by reminding local residents the Royal Tour probably wasnt going to extend to other parts of the Pacific namely Manus Island and Nauru. You know, where we jail men, women and children seeking asylum. Indefinitely.

A screen cap of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, pictured in Dubbo yesterday as part of their Royal Tour.

And thats how Ms Volkofsky came to hang a protest banner from her apartment window in the main street of Dubbo, only to have local police arrive and ask her to take it down. Because, while it may still be legal in Australia to express a political opinion, the Royals shouldnt have to read about it. Right?

Ms Volkofsky who lives above a florists shop in Talbragar Street in the CBD hung the offending sign up on Tuesday night. It read, ARE MANUS AND NAURU ON THE ROYAL ITINERARY? BLOOD ON OUR HANDS. By Wednesday morning, local police were on the case.

Fate of the Amazon is on the ballot in Brazils presidential election (commentary) "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The loss of the Amazon rainforest would be a catastrophe for Brazil and for the world. Its destruction would significantly increase the countrys carbon emissions and further destabilize the global climate. Photo credit: lubasi on Visualhunt / CC BY-SA It was almost too good to be true. In the late 20th and early 21st century, Brazils Amazon forest was disappearing at a rapid rate (27,772 square kilometers or 10,723 square miles per year in 2004), making the country the worldwide leader in deforestation and a major emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG). Then, starting in 2005, annual deforestation rates began to decrease at a breathtaking speed, dropping to 4,575 square kilometers (1,766 square miles) in 2012, a historical low, and a fall of more than 83 percent in just eight years. This caused the countrys carbon emissions due to land use change to fall sharply, by 63 percent from 2005 to 2012. Building on these successes, the Brazilian government pledged an ambitious reduction of its GHG emissions 37 percent by 2025, and 43 percent by 2030, below 2005 levels a promise made at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris in December, 2015. There are several plausible causes behind the sudden decrease in deforestation rates in the Brazilian Amazon, including the expansion of protected areas and indigenous lands, better enforcement of existing environmental legislation, interventions in supply chains and credit restrictions, and fines and embargoes of illegal deforesters. While praised by many inside and outside the government,

Drawn "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

A ballot for one Member's bill was held this morning, and the following bill was drawn:

  • New Zealand Superannuation and Retirement Income (Fair Residency) Amendment Bill (Mark Patterson)
The bill is typical NZ First racism, seeking to make it harder for immigrants to gain access to superannuation. A similar bill proposing a pro-rate entitlement based on residency (rather than simply extending the residency qualification) was defeated in 2015. Though the bad news there is that both Labour and the Greens voted for it. Hopefully they will refuse to vote for this piece of racist shit.

BrainNet: A multi-person brain-to-brain interface for direct collaboration between brains "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://arxiv.org/abs/1809.08632

We present BrainNet which, to our knowledge, is the first multi-person non-invasive direct brain-to-brain interface for collaborative problem solving. The interface combines electroencephalography (EEG) to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information noninvasively to the brain. The interface allows three human subjects to collaborate and solve a task using direct brain-to-brain communication. Two of the three subjects are Senders whose brain signals are decoded using real-time EEG data analysis to extract decisions about whether to rotate a block in a Tetris-like game before it is dropped to fill a line. The Senders decisions are transmitted via the Internet to the brain of a third subject, the Receiver, who cannot see the game screen. The decisions are delivered to the Receivers brain via magnetic stimulation of the occipital cortex. The Receiver integrates the information received and makes a decision using an EEG interface about either turning the block or keeping it in the same position. A second...

In Memory of Our Comrade, Florent Sadiku "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The post In Memory of Our Comrade, Florent Sadiku appeared first on It's Going Down.

The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) remembers the life of revolutionary Florent Sadiku.

We want to memorialize a great comrade in the struggle and a great friend to us all: Florent Sadiku.

Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Flo will attest to his kindness and bravery, but his passion and the size of his heart is what stood out more than anything. His actions were driven by a genuine respect for those around him and a desire to see everyone treated well. He would drop everything to help a friend or comrade. At the same time, he had the sharpest wit in NY: he could hold a room in the palm of his hand with his humor, and his composure and seriousness left a deep, and meaningful impression on those who met him.

We crossed paths doing Rojava solidarity work and he quickly became one of our closest, dearest comrades. As a co-founder of the North American Kurdish Alliance (NAKA), he worked hard to ensure an alliance developed. He sincerely believed in building bridges between the Kurdish Freedom Movement and revolutionaries in the US. In addition to his years of experience with the Kurdish revolutionary movement he embraced the RAM project with open arms, helped our group grow, and respected our anarchist politics, believing that we are all together in this quest for human dignity.

As a testament to his character, he took great care in commemorating fallen martyrs. The energy he put into organizing the beautiful memorial service for New York City anarchist Shehid Robert Grodt, is just one of many examples.

It is impossible to separate his life and the way he treated people from his politics. He couldnt help but approach people with kindness and solidarity with those who deeply need it. This meant that no matter where he was in the world, he participated in liberatory struggle. While we salute the revolutionary in him, and mourn the loss of our comrade, we will always remember him for his humor, wittiness, heartfelt emotions, sincerity, firm principles yet understanding towards individuals, and powerful commitment to friendship.

From now on we will walk with Florent forever in our hearts. Though the world lost an irreplaceable person, we will carry the wonderful qualities he embodied into the struggle so that the example he was for us will help make the world he wanted to see a reality.

3D Printing, Halloween Style "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The wonders of 3D printing dont stop coming. Whether its printing tools on the International Space Station, printing houses out of concrete, or just making spare parts for a childs toy, theres virtually nothing you cant get done with the right 3D printer, including spicing up your Halloween decorations.

Not only is this pumpkin a great-looking decoration for the season on its own, but it can also transform into a rather unsettling spider as well for a little bit of traditional Halloween surprise. The print is seven parts, which all snap into place and fold together with a set of ball-and-socket joints. While it doesnt have any automatic opening and closing from a set of servos, perhaps we will see someone come up with a motion-activated pumpkin spider transformer that will shock all the trick-or-treaters at the end of this month.

Its not too late to get one for yourself, either. The files are available on Thingiverse or through the project site. And weve seen plenty of other Halloween hacks and projects throughout the years too if youre looking for other ideas, like the recent candy machine game, a rather surprising flying human head, or this terrifying robot.

A complainant told RT the process is 'violating.' Claire Waxman, the capital's first victims' commissioner, stated in a letter to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), that victims were being told that their cases would be dropped unless they gave police access to intimate information and personal items, reported the Guardian. Alleged victims routinely signed consent forms that would provide defence lawyers, along with alleged attackers access to intimate details of the complainants lives, details which could then be revealed in court.

Harvard Calls for Retraction of Dozens of Studies by Noted Cardiologist "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/15/health/piero-anversa-fraud-retractions.html

A prominent cardiologist formerly at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston fabricated or falsified data in 31 published studies that should be retracted, officials at the institutions have concluded.

The cardiologist, Dr. Piero Anversa, produced research suggesting that damaged heart muscle could be regenerated with stem cells, a type of cell that can transform itself into a variety of other cells.

Although other laboratories could not reproduce his findings, the work led to the formation of start-up companies to develop new treatments for heart attacks and stroke, and inspired a clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health.

"A couple of papers may be alarming, but 31 additional papers in question is almost unheard-of," said Benoit Bruneau, associate director of cardiovascular research at the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco. "It is a lab's almost entire body of work, and therefore almost an entire field of research, put into question."

The individuals tasked with "stopping election interference" are the ones who are actually rigging it "IndyWatch Feed World"

Last week, Mark Zuckerberg made the media rounds to give a rather shady explanation of why Facebook suddenly closed hundreds of incredibly popular pages in what's being called The Alternative Media Purge. Zuckerberg accused the closed pages, many of which had millions of fans, of spreading "political spam." Ironically, many of the pages that were shut down had absolutely nothing to do with politics or elections, unless you include the fact that they recommended skipping the entire circus. None of these pages were accused of being "the Russians," who were the scapegoat of the last surprise presidential election results. A couple of the things that many of the pages did have in common, incidentally, were an anti-war outlook and a police watchdog mentality. But as far as making the election more resistant to interference, the result of the Alternative Media Purge is the diametric opposite. People will now only get one side of the story.

Dianne Feinstein Wants Kavanaugh Sexual Misconduct Investigation Reopened if Democrats Take Control of Senate "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Vote red all the way down the ballot this midterm.

The Democrat party is an unhinged, lawless, violent mob.

Ranking member of the Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said Wednesday that if the Democrats take control of the Senate this midterm election, she will reopen the sexual misconduct investigation into Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Fox News reported:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday that if Democrats took control of the Senate following Novembers midterm elections, she would be in favor of reopening an investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations levelled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Id be in favor of opening an investigation into the allegations, Feinstein, the ranking minority member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said during a debate in San Francisco with her challenger, state Sen. Kevin de Len. A fellow Democrat, de Len emerged from Californias hectic jungle primary system to challenge one of the Senates longest tenured members for her seat.

Dianne Feinstein turned Brett Kavanaughs confirmation to the Supreme Court into a circus after she purposely held onto Christine Fords letter alleging Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a drunken high school party decades ago.

Someone from Feinsteins office presumably leaked Fords letter to the mediawhen Feinstein was asked point blank if her staffers leaked Fords letter, she stuttered as she denied leaking.

Christine Ford made a shocking revelation during the hearingshe said she didnt know she had the option to quietly speak to the Judiciary Committee about her sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

Fords lawyers kept this information from her in order to prompt a public hearing.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said last month on CBSs Face the Nation, that Feinsteins office will be investigated over the leaked letter.

The CIA in league with the Democratic Party Is Moving to Take Control of the House of Representatives

An extraordinary number of former intelligence and military operatives from the CIA, Pentagon, National Security Council and State Department are seeking nomination as Democratic candidates for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections. The potential influx of military-intelligence personnel into the legislature has no precedent in US political history.

If the Democrats capture a majority in the House of Representatives on November 6, as widely predicted, candidates drawn from the military-intelligence apparatus will comprise as many as half of the new Democratic members of Congress. They will hold the balance of power in the lower chamber of Congress.

Is the Greatest Bull Market Ever Finally Ending? (Hint: Follow the Money) "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The key here is the gains generated by owning US-denominated assets as the USD appreciates.
Is the Greatest Bull Market Ever finally ending? One straightforward approach to is to follow the money, i.e. global capital flows: assets that attract positive global capital flows will continue rising if demand for the assets exceeds supply, and assets that are being liquidated as capital flees the asset class (i.e. negative capital flows) will decline in price.
Global capital flows are difficult to track for a number of reasons. A significant percentage of global mobile capital is held in secretive offshore tax havens and "shadow banking," and tracking global corporate capital flows is not easy. Capital held in precious metals may not be reported, and assets such as enterprises and collectible art may be grossly undervalued for tax purposes.
Toss in shadow holding companies, LLCs with obscure trails of ownership, etc. and a definitive account of global capital flows is ultimately a guesstimate.

Trump's Worst Crime Yet "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Many of Donald Trumps crimes have been committed in plain sight, like his fraudulent Trump University and his naked efforts to obstruct the Russia investigation. He famously bragged about sexually assaulting women. But until now there hasnt been a whiff of murder in his past.

Trump couldnt be more obvious about the fact that he does not want the world to conclude that the Saudi government sent a kill team to Istanbul to torture and chop up an American resident who was simply visiting their consulate to obtain papers he needed to get married.

His killers were waiting when Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago. They severed his fingers and later beheaded and dismembered him, according to details from audio recordings described by a senior Turkish official on Wednesday.

Mr. Khashoggi was dead within minutes, and within two hours the killers were gone, the recordings suggested

A team of 15 Saudi agents, some with ties to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was waiting for Mr. Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate the moment he arrived, at about 1:15 p.m. on Oct. 2.

After he was shown into the office of the Saudi consul, Mohammad al-Otaibi, the agents seized Mr. Khashoggi almost immediately and began to beat and torture him, eventually cutting off his fingers, the senior Turkish official said.

Do this outside. You will put me in trouble, Mr. al-Otaibi, the consul, told them, according to the Turkish official and a report in the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak, both citing audio recordings said to have been obtained by Turkish intelligen...

We're Voting in the Eye of the Russia Investigation "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In this era of fragmented and social media, I think people live in the present more than ever, which is why I dont think the Russia investigation is going to have much of an impact on the midterm elections. After winning convictions against Paul Manafort and securing his cooperation around Labor Day, the special counsels office has kept their promise to maintain a low profile while the public is voting.  As a result, the president has almost completely dropped the topic and there has been little news to report.

Its difficult to know which party this will benefit the most. There have been indications that the electorate is more engaged on other issues and that the Democrats were doing better when talking about issues like health care than about Russia.  Perhaps theyre benefitting because their candidates arent beating a drum the voters dont really want to listen to.

On the other hand, if the electorate isnt thinking about how Trumps campaign chairman, deputy campaign chairman, national security adviser, and personal lawyer have all been convicted of crimes and are cooperating with investigators then there has to be some advantage in that for the Republicans.

There is something wrong with the way this is playing out. If youre familiar with hurricanes, you know that inside the eye things are calm but that this gives a false assurance since the winds will shortly return, often with even more force than before.  By agreeing to go silent for the election season, Robert Mueller is dutifully avoiding overly politicizing an investigation that should be impartial and fair.  But hes also creating an artificial and temporary environment where people are debating politics without thinking about the biggest and most consequential issue before them.  Watergate was a Category 5 political hurricane, and the Russia investigation is at least as big.

Were all inside the eye now, but if you look carefully you will see that the winds are still swirling. On Friday, Paul Manafort will be back in Judge T.S. Ellis IIIs Eastern Virginia courtroom. Hell be wearing a dark green prison jumpsuit instead of one of his extremely expensive tailored suits because Judge Ellis has denied his lawyers request that he be exempted from appearing in prisoners clothing.

At the conclusion of Manaforts Virginia trial, the jury was unable to reach a verdict on some of the charges against him, which means that the government has the option to try again in front of a different jury...

Begin By Ending Cooperation in the Yemen War "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I dont agree with David French about much but I didnt find anything to disagree about in his latest column which asks if it is possible for Trump to be at least as tough on Saudi Arabia as hes been on Canada. Its rare that writers at the National Review express opinions on foreign policy that are shared by a lot of people on the left, but here we have an example:

At a minimum, we can and should stop facilitating the Saudi bombing campaign in Yemen, a campaign that depends on American weapons and American help and is murderously indiscriminate.

In this day and age, Im inclined to latch onto any bipartisan agreement I can find, and I also agree with this:

Republicans and Democrats alike have looked the other way as the Saudis exported radical Islamic theologies, funded jihadists, and oppressed their own citizens. Weve consistently treated the Saudi government as if we need them more than they need us.

Of course, our relationship with the Saudi regime was forged in the immediate aftermath of World War Two, and the Eastern Front of that conflict, at least, largely followed a logic that is impossible to understand outside of the context of energy resources. Hitler made a race for the Caucasus rather than concentrating all his troops for a crushing blow against Moscow because he needed the fuel, and its the same reason that was so interested in taking over and holding Romania. Tanks and planes require vast amounts of fuel and an alliance with Saudi Arabia (and, initially, Iran) gave us a chance to not worry about that factor in any confrontation in Europe with the Soviets.

At the time, the culture, politics, and welfare of the people of the Arabian Peninsula were far down the list of American national security concerns, and we were primarily interested in applying the lessons wed learned from the war so that wed be better positioned in any future conflict. In retrospect, we might have made some different choices, but its doubtful we would have risked having that oil and gas fall into the hands of the Soviets who enjoyed enough of those resources as it was.

With so much money available, we naturally saw some of our purer motives become corrupted over time, and theres not much to be proud about when we look back at our relationship with the House of Saud. Particularly after 1979, the relationship has curdled badly and we already had the experience of blowback in 2001, when we were attacked on our own soil by Saudi terrorists.

Im probably more forgiving of our Saudi policy than many on the left, mainly because I recognize the legitimate reasons for why it began and that nothing is easy in the region. There are neve...

Is the Yemen Assassination Program "Awesome"? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

BuzzFeed News published a troubling article today about an American company named Spear Operations Group that is run by Abraham Golan, a charismatic Hungarian Israeli security contractor who lives outside of Pittsburgh. Mr. Golan openly admits that he ran a targeted assassination program in Yemen on behalf of the government of the United Arab Emirates:

There was a targeted assassination program in Yemen, he told BuzzFeed News. I was running it. We did it. It was sanctioned by the UAE within the coalition.

The article begins with an operation that went haywire back in 2015, while President Obama was our commander in chief. Mr. Golans mission was to kill a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that is a whole lot more socially and politically complex than is commonly understood in the United States. To the Saudi regime and their Gulf allies, the Brotherhood is a terrorist organization. Yet, in 2012, Egypt elected Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Brotherhood, as their president.

There is no simple way to explain the development and role of the Brotherhood, and that can be demonstrated by looking at their professed beliefs. On the one hand, it would be accurate to say that theyre religious fundamentalists who believe the Quran should be the central organizing basis of political society. On the other hand, theyve become fairly consistent in fighting (at least when out of power) for many key and core American principles.

According to a spokesman on its English-language website, the Muslim Brotherhood believes in reform, democracy, freedom of assembly, press, etc.

We believe that the political reform is the true and natural gateway for all other kinds of reform. We have announced our acceptance of democracy that acknowledges political pluralism, the peaceful rotation of power and the fact that the nation is the source of all powers. As we see it, political reform includes the termination of the state of emergency, restoring public freedoms, including the right to establish political parties, whatever their tendencies may be, and the freedom of the press, freedom of criticism and thought, freedom of peaceful demonstrations, freedom of assembly, etc. It also includes the dismantling of all exceptional courts and the annulment of all exceptional laws, establishing the...

Why Trump Should Cough Up the Dough "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I had a buddy in college who told me he was a very good chess player. I found this encouraging and invited him to play. He was a fairly decent player but he became outraged when I utilized the en passant move on him and insisted that I was attempting to cheat. In todays world, our argument would have been resolved in seconds by doing a google search on one of our phones, but back in the dark ages of the early 1990s, there was no simple way to resolve our dispute. So, instead, we raged at each other, both of us insisting with increasing castigation that we were right. At one point, he offered to give me a million dollars if it were true that a pawn can capture a pawn in a space it doesnt actually occupy.

A funny thing about the pre-internet days is that these kinds of disagreements could persist without being resolved. It bothered me that my friend thought I was either a cheat or an idiot, and also that he persisted in being so very wrong, but I was more interested in having a somewhat capable chess partner than in taking the time to go to the library or a book store to prove him wrong. I agreed to play him without the en passant rule. Yet, every time he took advantage of the fact that we werent using the rule, I couldnt help but complain anew, and wed argue and argue some more. We didnt resolve the issue until many years after college when I sent him a link and he accepted that hed been in error and apologized for questioning my integrity.

You know what I didnt do?

I didnt ask him for the million dollars hed promised me if he was wrong. I didnt ask because I knew an offer of a million dollar bet is not a real offer. If hed bet me twenty bucks, I would have told him I expected him to transfer that amount to my PayPal account or send me a personal check. He would have been honor-bound to give me my money.

So, how do we treat it when a president of the United States who professes to be a billionaire makes a bet and offers to pay a million dollars to charity if he is wrong?

In July, Donald Trump issued a challenge of sorts to Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. At a MAGA rally in Montana, the president offered a hypothetical scenario where hed be running for reelection against Warren and facing her in a presidential debate. Here is what he said:

"Lets say Im debating Pocahontas. I promise you Ill do this: I will take, you know those little kits they sell on television learn your heritage!

Perhaps the Dem's Wave Crested Too Early "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Last week, I asked if the GOP will get a needed bump out of Kavanaugh and answered that it appeared they would, at least in the contest for control of the U.S. Senate. I also declared that President Trump and the Republican Party are losing the Midwest because thats the one Trump-friendly region of the country that moves away from the president when things get polarized over workers vs. corporate interests. Overall, however, the increased polarization resulting from Kavanaughs confirmation to the Supreme Court has greatly benefitted the Republicans bid to keep Mitch McConnell in his position as Senate Majority Leader. The Supreme Court also lent a hand last week by doing nothing about the mass disenfranchisement of Native Americans under North Dakotas new election law that prevents anyone who has a P.O. Box rather than a residential street address from voting, possibly (and dishonorably) crippling Sen. Heidi Heitkamps chances of winning reelection.

A consistent theme in my analysis of the Kavanaugh issue was that it would have a divergent effect, making Democratic control of the House more likely while making a takeover of the Senate harder than ever.  Nate Silver openly cops to the fact that he was initially dubious of this prediction:

At first, I was a little skeptical of the narrative that Justice Brett Kavanaughs confirmation process could send the House and Senate moving in opposite directions. Usually in politics, a rising tide lifts all boats so whichever party benefited from the Supreme Court nominees confirmation would expect to see its fortunes improve in both its best states and districts and its worst ones.

But a House-Senate split is exactly what were seeing in the FiveThirtyEight forecast. Democratic prospects in the Senate are increasingly dire, having fallen...

Casual Observation "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

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

We garden, forage etc., and notice the later garden starts, from say 20 years ago. 
Spring comes later and later. Summer is short. Then it gets too cold too soon.

This is what I've observed over an extended time period.

The Search for God and the Imaginary Worlds Between. "IndyWatch Feed World"

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I wonder when God will finally get pissed off? I thought it would happen some while ago. There are many reasons for that. It's not just the possessed and insane. It's the big guns like the governments and media. It's the rogue religions; the ones who sell out their principles to give the impression of tolerance for all kinds of things; things I don't tolerate, in silence that is. Nor am I aggressive to hinder these fools. They are on the road to the destination that their life has shaped for its specific revelations

The madness is there to be seen. If you can stand in the light of objective awareness, you can see with clarity; see in all it's frightening implications. I have links upon links but let these serve for the moment. There may be more but this is not what I came here for.

First my apologies for being so absent in the last couple of months. I have really been going through it. I'll spare you the details, gruesome as they would prove to be. It is all merely changes and that is one of the basic truths of life. We change or we die. Sometimes we change and then die but there is a road of specific change where you do not die in the conventional sense; according to the Bible; we shall not all die but we shall all be changed.

I am grateful now for all that has happened to me, crazy as that might sound but what it has done is to strip away so many of my foolish attachments which... I was unaware of. Never before, except perhaps when I was much younger and consumed with desire for the ineffable have I felt like this, which put me in many a perilous circumstance. The divine is the most important thing in life and is now the centerpiece of mine. I am so grateful!!! It is a bit vertigo enhanced. One must remember to breathe deeply and with an easy flow- remembering that the ineffable is the breath of life. Breathe God in and breathe God out. I was going to include many excerpts from Paramhansa ( apparently that is the correct spelling) Yogananda's ...

Wafi-Golpu Project To Lift Economic Growth, Says ONeill "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

ECONOMIC GROWTH DOES NOT MEAN BETTER LIVES FOR ORDINARY PEOPLE

Benny Geteng | Post Courier | October 16, 2018

The Wafi-Golpu project in Morobe province and Papua LNG in Gulf province will help PNG experience a 3 per cent economic growth when productions begin, said Prime Minister Peter ONeill.

Mr ONeill said the two projects, when they start producing will boost the economy of the country at a sustainable rate.

PNG will experience a medium growth of 3 percent. 3 percent is a sustainable growth for a country.

The Wafi Golpu mine will be the basis to deliver infrastructure to the province, he said.

Mr ONeill said with the Papua LNG Project there is good progress to deliver the project and the negotiation team is at fiscal terms of project signing and closing to pass concessions.

AFTINET disappointed at Senate majority approval of TPP-11 "IndyWatch Feed National"

Media Release 17 September 2018 

AFTINET is deeply disappointed that the Senate looks set to pass the TPP-11 implementing legislation, AFTINET Convener Dr Patricia Ranald said today.

Progressive civil society groups, including public health, environment, aid and development groups, churches and unions have played a leading role in exposing the dangers of the TPP-11 in what has been an eight-year public debate.

This has been reflected in the opposition to the TPP-11 from the Greens and Centre Alliance, ALP policy against many TPP-11 provisions, and a fierce internal ALP debate. We thank all parliamentarians who have spoken out against the TPP.

We remain deeply disappointed that the ALP caucus majority decided to support the TPP-11 implementing legislation." 

People are concerned because the TPP-11 is not mainly about traditional trade issues like tariffs. It has an unprecedented 30 chapters, including ones on temporary workers, trade in services, financial services, telecommunications, electronic commerce, competition policy, state owned enterprises and regulatory coherence. Most of these treat regulation as if it were a tariff to be frozen and then reduced over time, and not to be increased.

This structure suits global companies but restricts future governments from regulating in the public interest. Our experience of the global financial crisis, the banking royal commission, escalating climate change and the exploitation of vulnerable temporary workers tells us that governments need to have the capacity to change regulation in the public interest.

The TPP-11 also includes special legal rights for foreign investors to bypass national courts and sue governments in unfair international tribunals if they can argue that a change in law or policy harmed their investment, known as Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS).

The agreement will also mean increased numbers of vulnerable temporary migrant workers from six TPP countries without first testing if local workers are available.

We recognise that Labor has said it will attempt to remove ISDS and reinstate labour market testing for temporary workers in the TPP-11 if it wins government. But in practice such changes will be difficult to achieve, said Dr Ranald.

We welcome Labors foreshadowed...

CNN: Cold War #2/24 Iron Curtain "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Wikipedia

Cold War is a twenty-four episode television documentary series about the Cold War that aired in 1998. It features interviews and footage of the events that shaped the tense relationships between the Soviet Union and the United States.

The series was produced by Pat Mitchell and Jeremy Isaacs, who had earlier in 1973 produced the World War II documentary series The World at War in a similar style. Ted Turner funded the series as a joint production between the Turner Broadcasting System and the BBC, and was first broadcast on CNN in the United States and BBC Two in the United Kingdom. Writers included Hella Pick, Jeremy Isaacs, Lawrence Freedman, Neal Ascherson, Hugh OShaughnessy and Germaine Greer. Kenneth Branagh was the narrator, and Carl Davis (who also collaborated with Isaacs with The World at War) composed the theme music. Each episode would feature historical footage and interviews from both significant figures and others who had witnessed particular events.

The series excluded several Cold War issues and topics, including the Communist takeovers of South Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia in 1975, the subsequent unification of Vietnam and Vietnamese refugee crisis, the failed Communist revolution in Indonesia in 1965, China after Maos passing, from the trial of the Gang of Four to the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, Bulgaria, Albania, and more details on the Dominican crisis of 1965.

Air Niugini operates first ever commercial flight to mainland China "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

National airline, Air Niugini will operate its first direct commercial flight between Port Moresby and Shanghai, China on Tuesday, 23rd October 2018.
A cocktail function has been organized for all Chinese stakeholders on arrival including airport authorities, tourism bureau, top travel agents, wholesalers and tour operators. This will be followed by training seminars and a media forum.

The Port Moresby/Shanghai flight will operate twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Fridays.Flights depart Port Moresby at 7:30pm and arrive in Shanghai at 1am, local time the next morning. The return flights on Wednesday and Saturday depart at 02:30am and arrive in Port Moresby at 11:45am. The flight time from Port Moresby to Shanghai on the new direct flight is 7 hours, 30 minutes and 7 hours,15 mintues on the return service.

Acting Chief Executive Officer, Mr Tahawar Durrani when announcing the new flight in Port Moresby today, emphasized that the inclusion of Port Moresby/Shanghai route is a strategic move as it provides an opportunity for Chinese visitors and business people to travel not only to Papua New Guinea but also to the Pacific and Australia.

Mr Durrani said This service will complement our existing international flights to Asia - Singapore, Hong Kong, Manila and Tokyo as well as our regional network which includes Honiara in Solomon Islands, Nadi in Fiji, Cairns,Brisbane and Sydney in Australia and Federated States of Micronesia.
It also offers convenience for the Chinese and PNG business communities and tourists,delegates attending APEC, as well as hundreds of PNG students studying in various cities in China to fly direct between the two countries.

The Port Moresby/Shanghai flight also reinforces Air Niuginis position as a carrier of choice connecting Asia with the Pacific Islands and Australia and further enhances Port Moresby as the gateway hub in the region.

Queensland decriminalises abortion "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

When running for election, Labour promised to take abortion out of the Crimes Act. That promise has been shunted off to the Law Commission for the moment, but while Labour is pissing about and covering its arse, over the Tasman Australians have stolen a march on us, with the Queensland state parliament voting for decriminalisation:

Nineteenth-century laws making abortion illegal in Queensland have been scrapped, in one of the state's biggest legislative reforms.

The government's controversial plan to decriminalise pregnancy termination passed through state parliament with a comfortable margin of 50 votes to 41.

The laws mean abortion will be available, on request, at up to 22 weeks' gestation.

It also allows an abortion to take place after 22 weeks if the medical practitioner performing the termination has consulted with a second medical practitioner and both agreed that "in all the circumstances" the abortion should be performed.


So how long will it take in New Zealand? The Law Commission says they will be providing a response to Andrew little "within eight months of the Ministers 27 February 2018 request", which is around the end of this month. Which means we should see legislation passed next year.

What Keeps Washington Indefinitely in Bed With Riyadh "IndyWatch Feed World"

Its time to ask an uncomfortable question: What exactly is the U.S. getting out of its partnership with Saudi Arabia? The answer is: nothing but headaches, human rights abuses and national embarrassment. In the cynical past, the U.S. could at least argue that it needed Saudi oil, but thats no longer the case, due to the shale-oil boom (though that fact is not necessarily good for an ever-warming planet).

Recently, the crimes of the Saudi government managed to pierce the Trump-all-the-time-Kanye-West-sometimes media-entertainment complex due to Riyadhs likely murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. That the U.S.-Saudi relationship is, however briefly, coming under the proverbial microscope is a good thing. Still, it is astonishing that this incidentrather than dozens of other crimesfinally garnered attention. Even so, President Trump appears reluctant to cancel his negotiated $110 billion record arms deal with the kingdom.

For me, its personal. Saudi Arabias fingerprintsboth of its government and private-citizen donorshave been all over Americas various opponents these past 17 years of war. I patrolled the streets and suburbs of Baghdad from 2006 to 2007. Sunni Islamist insurgents, which were funded by the Saudis, shot a few of my soldiers and paralyzed one permanently. We regularly found Saudi Wahhabi Islamist literature in the homes and caches of our insurgent enemies.

Years later, from 2011 to 2012, I led a cavalry reconnaissance company in Kandahar, Afghanistan. We chased the Talibanreally a collection of disgruntled farm boysaround the fields and valleys of the Zhari district. Guess where those Taliban fighterswho killed three of my men and wounded 30 otherswent to school? In Saudi-financed madrassas across the border in Pakistan.

All told, Ilike hundreds of other officerssacrificed young American soldiers fighting an enemy too often armed and funded by the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In Iraq, my platoon suffered the loss of three lives, the use of a few legs and several gunshot wounds. In Afghanistan, my troop gave up 10 limbs, three lives and endured more than a dozen gunshot wounds. That the SaudisAmericas purported partners in the Middle Easthave even some of that blood on their hands should be seen as a national tragedy. That it is not reflects poorly on the health and future of this republic.

Rep. Gaetz Sounds the Alarm After Footage Surfaces of Women & Children Given Cash to Join Honduran Caravan to Storm U.S. Border (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trumps warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The caravan had approximately 1,300 people on Monday and managed to balloon in just two days, tripling the number of people heading northbound towards the U.S. border just in time for the midterm elections.

The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Just how did the migrant caravan get so big in just a matter of two days? Footage surfaced Wednesday of Honduran women with children being given cash to join the caravan.

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) sounded the alarm Wednesday and called for an investigation into the source when he tweeted out a video of women holding babies and young children being given cash to join the caravan.

REP. MATT GAETZ: BREAKING: Footage in Honduras giving cash 2 women & children 2 join the caravan & storm the US border @ election time. Soros? US-backed NGOs? Time to investigate the source!

JOURNALISTS: IF YOU THINK TRUMP TURNED WARREN'S DNA ROLLOUT INTO A GAFFE, YOU NEED TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Much of political punditry is theater criticism, and Elizabeth Warren is getting bad reviews for the revelation of her DNA test yesterday. Here's Vanity Fair's Peter Hamby:

All this hard political workthe DNA test, the fancy video, the big Boston Globe piece, the Google search ads, the splash page, the finely tuned messagingand how did Trump respond to this ruthless counter-offensive? Exactly as youd expect. He laughed at her and moved along.
Of course he laughed. No one expected him not to. He wasn't going to back down, any more than he backed down on birtherism after President Obama released his long-form birth certificate.

If there'd just been scorn from Trump and the rest of the right, Warren could have been in reasonably good shape. But she was also rebuked by, well, people like Peter Hamby:
Its next to impossible to argue that Warrens political standing is better today than it was before she released the video. Warrens first big foray into the nascent presidential campaign was on Trumps terms, not her own, having been trolled into producing and distributing a mini-doc that broadcast her biggest political liability directly into the maw of the Internet. Warren gifted her opponents a new and embarrassing line of attackIm between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American! Take that, Donald!that will go down alongside John Edwardss $400 haircut and Mitt Romneys 47 percent gaffe in the annals of numeric political blunders.
Hamby concludes that the burning question isn't Is it true? but, rather How did it play? And, specifically: How did it play with the awe-inspiring Master of Smashmouth Politics, Donald Trump?
Warrens maneuver stands as a warning sign for other Democrats on the path to challenging Trump in 2020. Getting into the mud pit with Trumpwho doesnt care about political decorum, rules, sexism, racism, name-calling, facts, or reasonhas revealed itself as a suckers game for politicians and peacocking White House correspondents who try to joust with him. Talk to anyone in politics, and theyll tell you the same thing: tangling with Trump is just really hard, and theres no clear alternative playbook.
Read that again: tangling with Trump is just really hard, and theres no clear alternative playbook. So you can't fight him and you can't take an approach other than fighting him. Might as well just give up and declare him the winner of the 2020 election by acclamation, I guess.

No other 2020 Democrat has a potential vulnerability quite like this one, but they're all going to have missteps, and when they do, Trump will pounce -- and the "liberal media" theater critics will be right behind, putting the boot in. Just about every Democratic hopeful is destined to get terrible m...

Autonomous Antifascism, State Repression & Arrests "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The post Autonomous Antifascism, State Repression & Arrests appeared first on It's Going Down.

Northern California Anti-Racist Action brings us the following analysis and critique on the recent arrests of neo-Nazis from the group, the Rise Above Movement (RAM).

On October 2nd, as has been widely reported in the media, four members of the violent neo-Nazi gang known as Rise Above Movement (earlier known as DIY Division) were arrested and are now facing federal rioting charges that could land them behind bars for years if convicted. The criminal complaint brought against members of RAM by the FBI references and quotes the work of Northern California Anti-Racist Action (NoCARA) on RAM which was published in July 2017. In light of this development, we believe its important to examine and clarify a number of important points relating to RAM, the FBI, state repression, and anti-fascist research and organizing.

RAM, until now, had enjoyed an uninterrupted trail of violence across the country. This culminating in their attacks on anti-fascist protesters in the bloody battles that played out in the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12th, 2017 which resulted in the injury of dozens and the murder of Heather Heyer by a fellow Unite the Right marcher of RAM, James Alex Fields Jr.

Cole White in Berkeley

Perhaps nothing captures the spirit of RAMs participation in the violence of Charlottesville more clearly than two widely circulated images of Benjamin Daley. In the first, he is making the throat slashing gesture commonly known to signify a death threat to a crowd of anti-fascist protesters, and in the other, he is viciously strangulating a non-combative woman significantly smaller than him while she is surrounded and being attacked by other members of RAM.

Simultaneous co-detection of wild-type and vaccine strain measles virus using the BD MAX system. "IndyWatch Feed National"

PMID:  Pathology. 2018 Jun ;50(4):450-454. Epub 2018 May 8. PMID: 29752126 Abstract Title:  Simultaneous co-detection of wild-type and vaccine strain measles virus using the BD MAX system. Abstract:  Despite the reported elimination of measles virus in Australia, importation of cases from endemic countries continues to lead to secondary local transmission and outbreaks. Rapid laboratory confirmation of measles is paramount for individual patient management and outbreak responses. Further, it is important to rapidly distinguish infection from wild-type virus or vaccine strains to guide public health responses. We developed a high throughput, TaqMan-based multiplex reverse-transcription-polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay using the BD MAX platform (Becton Dickinson) that simultaneously detects measles virus and differentiates between wild-type and vaccine strains without the need for sequencing.

No Connection Required: How One Dev Sent Bitcoin While Off the Grid "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

goTenna bitcoin transaction

Following a partnership between Samourai Wallet and goTenna, which now allows users to send bitcoin transactions offline, one developer in New Zealand is staying ahead of the curve.

Detailing the feat in a series of tweets, Rigel Walshe used a $27 entry level, Android smartphone and four goTennas (portable devices used to create off-grid radio signals) to successfully send a bitcoin transaction without access to the internet.


Heres how he did it.

Working in Auckland, New Zealand, Walshe used Google Maps to devise a relay route that would respect goTennas stated maximum relay range of 6.4 km (though he notes this region is mountainous, so it was important to find high ground so as to not have any land structures interfere with the signals).

As Walshe set up each goTenna, which has a concealed relay station, he sent a transaction to see if it effectively went through. His girlfriend was waiting on the other side of each transaction, with her smartphone connected to the goTenna mesh network Walshe created. (Although an internet connection was not needed in order to receive the transaction, she was only able to confirm that the transaction was successful by checking the blockchain over the internet.)

The developer was able to send a transaction from two of the three locations he used, citing that the third didnt go through because it was pushing the distance of the goTennas.

A huge takeaway for Walshe was that, from the offline device, there was no way to know if the transaction had been received by the other party. Therefore, he would need to essentially depend upon the party on the other side, in this case his girlfriend, to accurately report back...

Here Are the Trump Projects Where Ivanka and Her Dad Misled Buyers "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

A pattern of deception ran through the Trumps real estate deals since the mid-2000s. Not only were the Trumps more than the mere licensors they claimed to be, extracting millions in fees from nearly every facet of these projects, but they often misled buyers and investors on key information such as the level of sales and the Trumps role and investment in the deals. (Read our full investigation.) The Trump Organization did not respond to our questions, and the White House didnt have a comment.

Projects Where a Trump Family Member Overstated Sales Numbers

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Claim: Donald Trump claimed $365 million in sales in a 2007 letter to The Wall Street Journal.

Reality: Trump reported $290 million in a 2009 project audit.

Result: Never built.

FORT LAUDERDALE

Claim: Trump announced the hotel/condo was pretty much sold out in April 2006, according to a broker who attended the presentation.

Reality: 62 percent of units were sold as of July 2006, according to bank records that emerged in a court case.

Result: Entered foreclosure. Trumps name removed before construction completed.

LAS VEGAS

Claim: Condos sold out, Trump told The Associated Press in 2005

Reality: About 25 percent of units were sold by 2011, according to press accounts.

Result: Built.

Claim: Its a 1,000-unit building, weve sold over 90 percent of it, Ivanka told Portfolio in 2008.

Reality: As of three months later, 79 percent of the units were pre-sold, according to Moodys.

Result: Built, but went bankrupt...

School and students faces lawsuit after group of 'mean girls' set out to destroy boy's life with false sexual assault accusations "IndyWatch Feed World"

Seneca Valley School District in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is facing a lawsuit from a former male student who was forced out of school-and investigated for sexual assault-due to a series of false accusations made by female students. The girls-dubbed "mean girls" in the lawsuit, a reference to the 2004 Lindsay Lohan film-admitted on tape that they made up the assault story. One said, "I just don't like him" and "[I] would do anything to get him expelled," according to The Toronto Sun. The false allegations were life-derailing for the accused, who is referred to as "T.F." in the lawsuit. On October 3, 2017, one of the girls told other students that T.F. had sexually assaulted her at a pool; a Seneca Valley guidance counselor overheard the accusation, and reported it to Childline, the state's child abuse prevention agency, as required by law. T.F. was swiftly charged with indecent assault and harassment, and received six months of probation as part of a plea deal.

Dem Operative For Soros-Funded Group Arrested For Battery Against Republican Campaign Manager in Nevada "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Kristin Davison, Soros-funded Wilfred Michael Stark image via Fox News

Thank you Eric Holder and Maxine Waters.

Wilfred Michael Stark III, 50, a Democrat operative funded by George Soros, was arrested Tuesday after a Nevada Republican campaign manager accused him of grabbing her arm and refusing to let go.

Kristin Davison, the female victim said she was terrified and traumatized after Mr. Stark manhandled her and left bruises on her body, including on her neck and arms.

Fox News reported:

A Democratic operative for American Bridge 21st Century, a group founded by David Brock and funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, was arrested Tuesday after the female campaign manager for Nevada GOP gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt accused the operative of grabbing and yanking her arm and refusing to let go.

Kristin Davison and other officials for the Nevada attorney generals campaign said the battery left her terrified and traumatized and with bruises on her neck and arms.

Politics is a little bit aggressive these days, but this is just insane. Ive never seen anything like it, Davison, 31, told Fox News on Wednesday.

Were used to trackers, but this guy was very physicalpushing me, pushing into members of my staff, screaming, Davison explained. This man was physically, almost body-checking me. I was getting nervous for my safety, so we left, and went into an open room.

He grabbed my right arm, my leg was lodged between the door and the wall. He twisted my arm, and contorted it behind my back, she explained. I was scared. Every time I tried pulling away, he would grab tighter, and pull me closer into him.

Davison said Stark pulled her head into his chest, bruising her neck, and held her there for several minutes. She said it felt like an hour.

I was scared and screaming stopyoure hurting me, she explained.

Davison said Stark warned Laxalt, saying, Adam, theres only one way you can make this stop.

Chris Hedges: 'America: The Farewell Tour' "IndyWatch Feed War"

From Hedges aptly titled new book, 'America: The Farewell Tour' (2018):
The destruction of democratic institutions, places where the citizen has agency and a voice, is far graver than the ascendancy to the White Hose of the demagogue Trump. A creeping corporate coup detat has destroyed our two-party system. It destroyed labor unions. It destroyed public education. It destroyed the judiciary. It destroyed the press. It destroyed academia. It destroyed consumer and environmental protection. It destroyed our industrial base. It destroyed communities and cities. And it destroyed the lives of tens of millions of Americans no longer able to find work that provides a living wage, cursed to live in chronic poverty or locked in cages in our monstrous system of mass incarceration.
This coup also destroyed the credibility of liberal democracy. Self-identified liberals such as Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama mouthed the words of liberal democratic values while making war on these values in the service of corporate power. The revolt we see rippling across the country is a revolt not only against the corporate system that has betrayed workers, but also, for many, liberal democracy itself. This is very dangerous. It will allow the radical right to cement into place an Americanized fascism.

The criminalisation of women seeking abortion to end in Queensland, but still a reality in NSW "IndyWatch Feed National"

Queensland women will finally have the freedom to decide what is right for their bodies with the passing of the Termination of Pregnancy Bill in the Queensland Parliament last night.

The new law decriminalises abortion and respects the right of every person to decide what is right for them in consultation with their doctor up to 22 weeks of pregnancy. Thereafter, two doctors will need to consider an abortion appropriate. Safe access zones around abortion clinics will also become law and protect the dignity, privacy and safety of women seeking reproductive healthcare. 

Adrianne Walters, senior lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre commended the MPs who voted in support of equality, dignity and reproductive freedom.

Every single one of us should have the freedom to decide what is right for our bodies and lives. Its fantastic to see the Queensland Parliament make that a reality in law for women across the state. We congratulate the Queensland Government for driving this critical reform, said Walters

New South Wales now remains the only state that has not reformed its abortion laws in over 100 years. Abortion sits in criminal laws written in 1900.

NSW now stands shamefully alone in failing to reform its abortion laws. Every day, women in NSW are treated as second class citizens when it comes to accessing healthcare by the criminalisation of abortion, said Walters. 

Politicians across the divide should take notice  abortion laws in NSW defy community values, undermine modern medical practice and are hopelessly out of step with common sense. They must be modernised, said Walters.

Cumulative Sub-Concussive Impacts in a Single Season of Youth Football "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Arthur T Knackerbracket has found the following story:

In an investigation of head impact burden and change in neurocognitive function during a season of youth football, researchers find that sub-concussive impacts are not correlated with worsening performance in neurocognitive function.

[...] A research team, led by Sean Rose, MD, pediatric sports neurologist and co-director of the Complex Concussion Clinic at Nationwide Children's Hospital, followed 112 youth football players age 9-18 during the 2016 season in a prospective study.

"When trying to determine the chronic effects of repetitive sub-concussive head impacts, prospective outcomes studies are an important complement to the existing retrospective studies," says Dr. Rose. "In this study of primary school and high school football players, a battery of neurocognitive outcomes tests did not detect any worsening of performance associated with cumulative head impacts."

[...] In their secondary analysis, they found that younger age and reported history of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) predicted score changes on several cognitive testing measures and parent-reported ADHD symptoms. Additionally, a reported history of anxiety or depression predicted changes in scores of symptom reporting.

Cost of 2018 election to surpass $5 billion, CRP projects "IndyWatch Feed World"

This years midterm election cycle is slated to become the first and only member of the $5 billion club.

The Center for Responsive Politics projects that more than $5 billion will be spent during the 2018 election, making it by far the costliest congressional election cycle in U.S. history.

We expected to see the numbers climb, as they typically do, but the astonishing spike in campaign donations is a solid indicator of the intensity driving this years campaigns, said Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics.

The 2016 election was the most expensive congressional election, with just over $4 billion spent for House and Senate candidates in total. Only two congressional election cycles have surpassed the $4 billion mark 2016 and 2010 when adjusted for inflation.

More than $3.7 billion has already been spent on the 2018 election, including money spent by candidates, parties, committees, PACs and outside groups, for the purpose of the election.

Democratic candidates have a huge lead in spending over Republicans, having shelled out more than $1 billion to Republican candidates $720 million. Democrats have raised more than $1.3 billion from individual donors compared to just under $1 billion for Republicans as Democratic challengers have raised large masses of funds through small donors.

Republicans are leading in the outside money department, having benefited from approximately $343 million in outside spending compared to $248 million for Democrats. Outside spending, overall, is projected to be the highest-ever for a midterm election. More than $628 million has been spent by outside groups so far, compared to $421 million at this point in 2014.

Utilizing historical spending growth data from the third quarter on, CRPs model projects the total amount spent in the 2018 election will reach approximately $5.2 billion. CRP projects Democrats will spend nearly $300 million more than Republicans $2.5 billion to $2.2 billion. If current trends continue, Blue will outspend Red for the first time in 10 years.

Declaration from the 2018 Food Sovereignty Convergence "IndyWatch Feed National"

We representatives of small-scale farmers, fishers, agricultural workers, indigenous peoples, women, youth, eaters, and NGOs came together from across Australia to meet on the traditional lands of the Ngunnawal, Ngambri, and Ngarigu peoples, paying our respect to elders past and present. At the 2018 Food Sovereignty Convergence we celebrated the opportunity to meet each other to continue weaving alliances, building solidarity, and strengthening our commitment to defend our right to democratically participate in food and agriculture systems.

We recognise the Original Owners and their role in caring for this land for over 60,000 years, their long history of growing food in ethical and ecologically-sound ways, and their careful maintenance of biodiversity before and since Invasion. We re-affirm our support for the Uluru Statement from the heart, which asserts that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tribes were the first sovereign Nations of the Australian continent and its adjacent islands, and possessed it under their own laws and customs.

We affirmed our commitment to food sovereignty, which promotes everyones right to access culturally-appropriate and nutritious food grown and distributed in ethical and ecologically-sound ways, and our right to democratically determine our own food and agriculture systems.

The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) today celebrates an historical achievement as we unanimously voted to amend our constitution to make AFSA explicitly farmer led. While in practice we have for some years been an alliance of farmers and allies with a clear focus on radically transforming the food system from the ground up, the new constitution gives farmers control of decisions that have a material impact on their efforts to grow food ethically and ecologically. If youre not a farmer, you must be an ally, and if youre not an ally you have to ask yourself why not? AFSAs farmers are not interested in the old silo mentality we work in solidarity with the full range of other actors in the system for the radical transformation so desperately needed.

Agroecology is recognized by the UN as the best way to feed the world. In Australia, regenerative farming is on the rise, and AFSA hopes to support an evolving conversation that acknowledges agroecologys potential to extend the movements progress on ecological improvements to farming to also include social and economic improvements embedded in the principles and practices of agroecology.

Small-scale farmers are struggling to maintain access to critical supply chain infrastructure that is owned by a shrinking number of corporations. AFSA is committed to supporting communities to take control of the means of production, and are helping farmers and allies to network and develop cooperative models to build supply chain infrastructure such as abattoirs, grain mills, and other collab...

PBS/BBC: Peoples Century #6/26 1927 Great Escape "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Peoples Century is a television documentary series examining the 20th century. It was a joint production of the BBC in the United Kingdom and PBS member station WGBH Boston in the United States. The series was first shown on BBC in the 1995, 1996 and 1997 television seasons before being shown elsewhere in the world and before being broadcast in the USA in 1998.

The 26 one-hour episodes examined the socio-economic, political, and cultural movements that shaped the 20th century. The series represented a departure from documentaries that present history through recounting the actions of great men; Peoples Century considers the century from the perspective of common people. Most of those interviewed were ordinary men and women who closely witnessed various events and who give personal accounts of the manner in which the developments and disruptions of the 20th century affected their lives.

The opening credits depict various images from the century, accompanied with a theme music score by Zbigniew Preisner. The documentary won an International Emmy Award, among others.

Former KKK leader says Brazils Bolsonaro sounds like one of us

FORMER Ku Klux Klan (KKK) leader David Duke has endorsed far-right Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, saying the former army captain sounds like one of us.

Support from the prominent US racist, who also supported Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign, is the latest warning sign of the nature of Mr Bolsonaros candidacy.

Many have raised fears of a fascist dictatorship under his rule, with Mr Bolsonaro consistently praising the military junta that ruled over Brazil between 1964 and 1985.

He has faced mass opposition on the streets, with millions demonstrating as part of the non-partisan #NotHim movement organised by Women United Against Bolsonaro.

Attacks on opposition supporters and journalists have increased dramatically since September 30, including the stabbing to death of a prominent Workers Party (PT) activist and a woman who had a swastika carved into her stomach.

"Time alone oh, time will tell
You think you are in heaven, but you living in hell."
Time Will Tell, Bob Marley

HAMILTON, BERMUDA "Where are we? Heaven or Hell? Bermuda feels like Heaven. The sea is a bright, vivid blue, with clear water in coves and harbors. The sky is a lighter blue, with wispy clouds here and there. The weather here seems to be much like that of Florida or the Carolina coast, but moderated by the surrounding ocean. Not so hot. Not so cold.

But the Florida coast is flat In order to have any view at all, you either have to be right on the water or up in a high-rise. And even then, the Atlantic beach is like a ribbon running straight down the shore, with a line of houses and apartment buildings hard up against it. Here in Bermuda, the beaches are flanked by rocks and cliffs, with rose-colored sand gentle hills islands bays and inlets. And there are views from almost everywhere out over the harbors, the lighthouse, and the sparkling seas.

Matthew's Message via Suzanne Ward -- October 17, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Matthews Message, Oct. 17, 2018

October 17, 2018

Source: Golden Age of Gaia | By Steve Beckow



October 17, 2018

With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. Let us begin by addressing the two matters of most concern to readersfirst, mandatory vaccinations for children. Extraterrestrial special forces scientists are neutralizing to the extent possible the toxins in vaccines; nevertheless, continued opposition to vaccinating children as a prerequisite for their attending school is necessary to end this practice that has caused an autism-like condition in many children.

Bodies chemistry and immune systems are stressed by mercury, and youngsters who are especially vulnerable sustain neurological damage that results in symptoms very similar to autism, which is a very rare condition. Opposition can be reinforced by declining inoculations advised by healthcare professionals who are rewarded by vaccine manufacturers or believe the false claim that preventive flu shots and a raft of others are necessary public health measures.

We add that vaccines, like the first pharmaceuticals, were developed for beneficial purposes. Any innovation that is designed to be of benefit can be adapted for malevolent purposes, and that is what the Illuminati have done at every stage of the civilizations progress.

The other matter is the 5G wireless technology that offers highly accelerated speed and broader bandwidth. This new generation of communication service still is in development and market-testing stages, and universal family members are reducing the emissions impact on bodies of the relatively few people who are exposed; when devices are in mass production, those members will expand their technological assistance accordingly. A significant factor is the amount of light in a bodythe more light, the higher the vibratory rate, and the less the body is affected by emissions.

Facebooks Purge Of Political Pages Fuels Delusion Of Insurgent Threats To Democracy "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Facebooks purge of more than 500 pages and 250 accounts ahead of midterm elections in the United States represents a massive trend to police social media activity in ways that put freedom of expression at risk.

This trend effectively discourages users from engaging in radical politics. It may be viewed as part of a counterinsurgency effort by a powerful social media company to assure a passive majority of Americans that they are properly guarding a widely used platform from alleged threats to democracy.

On October 11, Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebooks head of cybersecurity policy, and Oscar Rodriguez, the companys product manager, published a press release about the purge.

Were removing 559 pages and 251 accounts that have consistently broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior, Gleicher and Rodriguez stated. Many were using fake accounts or multiple accounts with the same names and posted massive amounts of content across a network of groups and pages to drive traffic to their websites.

According to Gleicher and Rodriguez, these techniques were used by groups and pages to make content appear more popular than it truly was on Facebook.

Both suggested some of the pages and accounts were ad farms that misled users into believing they were forums for legitimate political debate.

Unfortunately, Facebook offered minimal transparency on the action. Administrators with removed pages or accounts were apparently given no specifics other than a notice that they were shut down.

Several of the pages and accounts removed were right-wing and known for boosting President Donald Trump and his administrations agenda. There were also dozens of progressive or left-wing pages, which were taken down.

Anti-Media, an anti-establishment independent media site with two million followers, had its page removed. Carey Wedler, editor at Anti-Media, did not lose her personal Facebook page with over 100,000 followers, but almost simultaneously, Twitter sent a notice that Wedlers account was suspended.

The Free Thought Project, Reverb Press, Press For Truth, and Rachel Blevins, an RT America correspondent, had their pages taken down.

Pages that document abuse by police were removedPolice the Police, Filming Cops, Cop Block, and Cop Logic. Both Police the Police and Filming Cops each had over a million followers.

There are legitimate reasons that accounts and pages coordinate with each otherits the bedrock of fundraising campaigns and grassroots organizations, Gleicher and Rodriguez stated. But the difference is that these groups are upfront about who they are, and what theyre up to.

Yet, none of the aforementioned pages, which have protested their removal, hid their missions from followers. They were very upfront about their political mo...

Honduran Migrant Caravan EXPLODES to 4,000 People as it Approaches Mexico-Guatemala Border "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trumps warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The Mexican government flooded the Mexico-Guatemala border with hundreds of police officers in anticipation of a stand off with the migrants.

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States.

The organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday and it was reported Honduran migrants had splintered off into smaller groups in order to travel undetected as they made their trek to the Mexican border. Reuters reported late Tuesday that some Honduran migrants had headed back to Honduras, however; it appears the caravan has grown as it make its way through Guatemala.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be traveling to Mexico on Friday to discuss plans to stop the caravan.

 A caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras has grown to 4,000 and the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, according to U.S. government documents obtained by NBC News.

Note on the current state of class struggle in Brazil "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

cab_statement_2.jpegThe current Brazilian political scenario demands a lot of lucidity and coolness from all the peoples fighters and their analysis of reality. We, the Brazilian Anarchist Coordination, modestly seek to make our contribution to the understanding of the convulsive political-social scenario, the main line of which is in the legal-parliamentary coup that toppled Dilma Rousseff from government. We have recently experienced the so-called exhaustion of the New Republic pact of 1988. Said pact maintained the social exclusion of those at the bottom of society, while guaranteeing minimal legal rights, in a coalition involving bourgeois politicians, businessmen, the military and part of the reformist sectors of the left.


The construction of the Brazilian state, however, has always been closer to the interests of the imperialist powers of the day than to the majority of the population. A penal state for the poor has always been the norm for the institutions of bourgeois democracy. The PT governments, since Lula, have increased the criminal machinery of public order with a whole legislative-judicial apparatus that reproduced the super-incarceration of blacks and the poor and the repressive apparatus that attacks social struggles. The pact of class conciliation was broken and collaborationism ripped open to give way to the aggressive agenda of financial capitalism over social rights, partial freedoms and public goods which were historic victories of the popular movement.

Right Wing Projection Wave "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Content Warning: Wearying Endless Hope-Destroying Fascist Evil, Apocalyptic Crapola. wontbehere4long dont read this. Youre too high strung, kid.

Projection is a phenomenon in psychology whereby a person protects themselves from awareness of their own flaws by accusing someone else of having said flaws. Im not the racist, that guy is! Sadly, this is so widespread among right wingers that one could make a serious case that its a defining feature of the motherfuckers.

Dave Futrelle at We Hunted The Mammoth has been facing a fucknado of fascist irony victims, defending their most transparent act of projection to date: the spreading of the NPC meme. Let me see if I can break down the background of this situation to a simple timeline:

In video games, non-player characters are the guys you interact with that have just a few pre-programmed things to say and never meaningfully change.

Random fucklord says he sees people he doesnt like as NPCs, thoughtless and soulless.

Projecting fucklords who speak in kek and cuck notice that social justice advocates use some jargon and assume its the same sort of group-affirming dog barks that they use.

Projecting fucklords adopt random fucklords meme and promote it.

As they always fucking do, they form a massive wall of hive-minded tools bargling at decent people about how were mindles soulless conformists.

They do this kind of shit all the time. Any given anti-feminist argument, for one small example, is repeated VERBATIM by forty thousand fucklords who somehow feel like they came up with the idea.

The reason that its ironic this time? The projection is an accusation of conformity and mindlessness.

Now, despite this being a fresh incident with that minty taste of a new twist, why does this feel instantly wearying and soul crushing? I didnt get it, but then I reflected. Right wingers always do this shit. Fucking always. You want to take away our religious freedom! You want to control our lives! Atheism is the real dogma! You want to censor us! You hate freedom!

This last couple of weeks has been hard as fuck. For me, the worse part of it was the newest report on climate change. Like...

5 bird species lose protections, more at risk in new Indonesia decree "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

JAKARTA A new decree from Indonesian authorities drops five bird species from a newly expanded list of protected wildlife, and potentially sets the stage for more to follow by widening the scope under which protected status can be rescinded. The capture and trade of the white-rumped shama (Kittacincla malabarica), Javan pied starling (Gracupica jalla), straw-headed bulbul (Pycnonotus zeylanicus), Sangihe shrikethrush (Colluricincla sanghirensis) and little shrikethrush (Colluricincla megarhyncha) will remain illegal without a government permit, but the lack of protected status means violators wont face the jail time or hefty fines prescribed in the 1990 Conservation Act. Four of the birds were among hundreds of species added to the ministrys list of protected species this past June. The fifth bird, the little shrikethrush, was on the original list published in 1999. All five have now been removed from the list following the publication on Sept. 5 of a decree from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. The little shrikethrush. Image courtesy of Dominic Sherony/Wikimedia Commons. The capture of wild birds is to be regulated through a government permit-and-quota system that is supposed to consider recommendations from the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), a state-funded think tank. Mohammad Irham, a senior ornithologist at LIPI, said his institution would reject requests to capture any of the five now-unprotected species from the wild. He criticized the rescinding of their protected status, saying it would hasten their decline in the wild. Our decision is based on scientific data, papers and surveys on the populations of these

Scientists map the impact of trawling using satellite vessel tracking "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A team of scientists has produced the most comprehensive assessment to date of trawling, a fishing technique that produces a sizable portion of the worlds seafood but is also seen as destructive and indiscriminate. The research tracked the movements of trawlers in 24 regions of the world, identifying the extent and intensity of their impacts the industrys footprint along continental shelves down to depths of 1,000 meters (3,280 feet). This is the first study that tried to map the impact of trawling at this global scale, Ricardo Amoroso, a biologist at the University of Washington, said in an interview. A beam trawler sits at the dock in Milford Haven, Wales, United Kingdom. Image by Jan Hiddink/Bangor University. Amoroso and his colleagues collected data from satellite-linked vessel monitoring systems, or VMSes, and logbooks from the past two to six years. They found that trawlers fished 14 percent of the ocean in the areas they studied, leaving 86 percent untouched by trawling. They published their work Oct. 3 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The figures quoted in the study raised concerns for University of British Columbia marine biologist Amanda Vincent, who was not involved in the study. It strikes me as an extraordinary apology for a fishing method that is really devastating, Vincent told Mongabay. I would be very concerned if this became a basis for policy decisions.

Pastor Nafuki sees light at end of tunnel for West Papua

By Len Garae

Let me assure the world that I can see the light at the end of the dark tunnel, that now the whole world knows more about West Papua than ever before so this is sure confidence for me which reflects the faith of the population of Vanuatu.

Indonesia can say whatever it wants to say but I am confident to say that West Papua is getting closer and closer and closer to its destiny for our Great God to give them their birthright and He is choosing us one by one to proclaim it to the world.

This is the first interview with the President of the Civil Society Organisations, Presbyterian Church Pastor Allan Nafuki, that support the longstanding struggle for freedom of the Melanesian people of West Papua.

My first message is that Vanuatus support for West Papua has not changed; chiefs, grandparents, fathers, mothers, young people and childrens support have not changed. Our mandate is to help West Papua to achieve self-determination and freedom, he says.

It is the mandate of our Government to continue to lobby with other friendly co...

How ancient Egyptian blue emits near-infrared light and how that could boost energy efficiency "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

A colour developed by Egyptians thousands of years ago can boost energy efficiency by cooling rooftops and walls, and could also enable solar generation of electricity via windows, scientists say. Egyptian blue, derived from calcium copper silicate, was routinely used on ancient depictions of gods and royalty, according to the study published in the Journal of Applied Physics. Previous studies have shown that when Egyptian blue absorbs visible light, it then emits light in the near-infrared range. Now, a team led by researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in the US has confirmed the pigment's fluorescence can be 10 times stronger than previously thought. Measuring the temperature of surfaces coated in Egyptian blue and related compounds while they are exposed to sunlight, researchers found the fluorescent blues can emit nearly 100 per cent as many photons as they absorb. The energy efficiency of the emission process is up to 70 per cent (the infrared...

Eventbrite: Ban White Supremacists | ColorOfChange.org "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Eventbrite: Ban White Supremacists | ColorOfChange.org: Eventbrite is still profiting from violent white supremacists. On Friday night, white supremacists with the violent hate group Proud Boys brutally beat three people in New York following an event, to which Eventbrite sold tickets. The event was headlined by the Proud Boys' leader, Gavin McInnes and was billed as a reenactment celebration of a Japanese ultranationalist who assassinated the head of a left-wing Japanese party with a sword. Color Of Change flagged this event for Eventbrite asking them not to sell tickets to the event. Eventbrite acknowledged our warning and was aware of the facts yet decided it was appropriate to continue selling tickets to an event that gave the leader of a group known for their white supremacist violence in Charlottesville a platform to speak and was openly billed as a glorification of far-right violence.

Eventbrite should not be profiting from events like this, not if they want to continue to be seen as being a "people-centered company." Eventbrite is not taking responsibility for this violence. They claim that they evaluated mutliple factors when choosing to continue to sponsor the event including that it was held by the Metropolitan Republican Club at a private setting with security in the GOPs headquarters in New York City. Regardless of the circumstances, no event providing a platform for white supremacists should ever be acceptable under Eventbrite's terms of service. There is no such thing as a safe space to meet for white supremacy and as Fridays actions show the Proud Boys specifically are intent on waging criminal violence wherever they go.

Fracking- 3 activists released from Jail "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

I spent much of last year filming on the frontline of resistance to Fracking in this country.  The controversial energy extraction process known as 'Fracking' has little support in the UK yet is being pushed ahead by the Tory Government.

I directed the movie Power Trip: Fracking in the UK and toured it all over England educating about the dangers of Fracking and what people are doing to stop it. Yesterday Cuadrilla Fracked for the first time near Blackpool. If the company finds that gas can be extracted this way then prepare for hundreds of more wells. This is not good new for our climate.

Today the 3 men jailed for protesting non-violently against Fracking last year were released. They appear in our film and the appeal judges declared their original sentence of 16 months as
'manifestly excessive'. They forgot to mention that the original judge has family links to the Fracking industry.
