Ecuadors Ambassador to the United States: Who Is Francisco Carrin Mena? "IndyWatch Feed"

Francisco Carrin Mena, who had left his countrys Foreign Service in 2011, was appointed in December 2017 to be Ecuadors ambassador to the United States.


Carrin was born April 8, 1953, in Quito, Ecuador. He earned a bachelors degree in public and social sciences from Central University of Ecuador in 1974 and a Ph.D. in international sciences in 1978 from the same institution.


Carrin joined Ecuadors Foreign Service in 1974. Beginning in 1982, he was first secretary at the embassy in Paris. He returned to Ecuador in 1988 as adviser and diplomatic coordinator for then-President Rodrigo Borja Cevallos. Carrin was sent to London in 1991 and served as charg daffaires there.


In 1996, Carrin was home again, this time serving as under secretary of national sovereignty. He also served on the team negotiating peace with neighboring Peru. He was named vice-minister of foreign affairs in 1998. Two years later, Carrin was named ambassador to Spain.

He returned to Quito in 2005 as minister of foreign affairs.


Shortly after President Rafael Correa took over in 2007, Carrin was named Correas representative to the Yasuni-ITT initiative. Yasuni-ITT was a proposal that Ecuador would suspend oil extraction from the Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini part of the Yasuni national park if the international community would pay Ecuador $3.6 billion to make up for the lost revenue. The plan was abandoned in 2013.


Carrin was named Ecuadors permanent representative to the United Nations in November 2009, serving until 2011, when he left the diplomatic corps because of disagreements with Correas policies. He had been chairman of the UNs Decolonization Committee.


Since then, Carrin has taught and written a newspaper column for Diario El Comercio. During this period, he did serve as president of the International Committee of the United Nations for the Protection of the Rights of Migrant Workers and Their Families. Carrin was appointed U.S. ambassador by Lenn Moreno, who took over the presidency from Correa in May 2017.

Carrin is married and has two children.

India eyes coal reserves in Indonesian Papua "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

As it seeks to diversify its sources of fuel, India is looking to get in on the ground floor of coal mining in previously unexploited deposits in Indonesian Papua. In exchange for technical support and financing for geological surveys, officials say India is pushing for special privileges, including no-bid contracts on any resulting concessions a prospect that could run afoul of Indonesias anti-corruption laws. The details of an Indian mining project in Papua are still being negotiated, but Indonesias energy ministry welcomes the prospect as part of a greater drive to explore energy resources in the countrys easternmost provinces. In the future, the ministry hopes mining for coking coal will support the domestic steel industry, while also bringing economic benefits to locals. Rights activists, however, fear the launch of a new mining industry could deepen tensions in a region where existing extractive projects have damaged the environment and inflamed a long-running armed conflict.

Prison Abolitionists Rally for Human and Environmental Health at Pittsburgh Polluters Offices "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

submitted to Earth First! Newswire

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania On the heels of the 3rd Annual Fight Toxic Prisons Convergence, dozens of organizers, community members, and friends and family of currently- and formerly-incarcerated peoples marched through downtown Pittsburgh, making stops at the headquarters of EQT and ending at a power plant belonging to coal utility NRG Energy on the North Side. The demonstration concludes a weekend of lectures, workshops, and discussion about mass incarceration and its links to environmental health.

EQT Corporation, a major oil and gas company notorious for poisoning drinking water supplies across rural Appalachia, is one of the largest companies involved in fracking, with 793 active wells in Pennsylvania alone. Theyre also one of the top ten worst polluters in the industry, according to a 2015 report published by the Natural Resources Defense Council. In 2012, EQT received several charges for water pollution and disturbance of waterways, and a $1.1 million fine for poisoning drinking water supply sources through a shale pit leak at Rock Run in Tioga County, PA, and has received several other fines, violations, and complaints as well.

The march culminated in a rally at the NRG Energy Center calling attention to the health and human rights atrocities occurring at SCI Fayette, a state-run prison that currently houses 2,176 inmates. SCI Fayette was built in 2003, directly on top of a toxic coal ash dump that has been in operation for decades, receiving millions of tons of waste from coal processing companies, including NRG.

The inmate population of SCI Fayette, and the surrounding community of Labelle, PA, have reported alarmingly high rates of health issues linked to the ash that blows off the dumping site and into the surrounding air.

ASUS wanted to integrate 10 GB RAM on its gaming smartphone "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

ASUS apparently was looking to include 10GB of RAM on its flagship smartphone

Earlier this week, the Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS unveiled its first dedicated high-end gaming smartphone, the ROG (Republic of Gamers) smartphone, designed for gamers at the Computex 2018 in Taipei. With this smartphone, the company is looking to follow companies such as Razer and Xiaomi, both of whom have launched smartphones like Razer Phone and Black Shark respectively, especially for gamers.

Designed for mobile gaming, the ROG features a 6-inch full HD+ (1080 x 2160 pixels) and comes with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Its AMOLED display blends a 90Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. The display on the ROG Phone is also certified for HDR and has the DCI-P3 color gamut. ASUS has added the worlds fastest 2.96GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with a Qualcomm Adreno 630 GPU to the device. Besides this, the ROG Phone comes with 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of onboard storage (with two other options of 128GB and 256GB of storage).

While the specifications do sound crazy, it has come to light that ASUS was apparently experimenting with a 10GB of RAM in an unnamed flagship smartphone about 10 months ago.

According to Twitter tipster Roland Quandt, ASUS had planned to include 10GB of RAM in an upcoming flagship, but it seems that the idea was dropped by the company due to size constraints in the phones body. RAM is usually placed on top of the processor but there was insufficient space to fit the necessary chips.

With ASUS already experimenting with the possibility of including 10GB of RAM in a smartphone, there are chances that the company may come up with such a device in the near future by finding a way through the obstacle.

We have already heard about smartphones having RAMs that are between 4GB 6GB, with one or two exceptions consisting 8GB of RAM. Do you think that we need smartphones with 1...

Pious Homophobes Win One "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

No one was questioning Phillips's faith, only his refusal to do for one couple what he would do for any other, as long as they were heteros. His belief is a canard. His conduct in the context of his business is the only issue. His belief didn't even have anything to do with the gay couple's request. They weren't calling his beliefs in doubt or suggesting that by baking them a cake he was endorsing their sexuality.


What Anthony Bourdain Reveals About Living In The Age Of Loneliness "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

I waited to start Gods Favorite Customer, Father John Mistys latest album, until the propellers were spinning on the small plane at the end of the runway out of Dublin, headed on the short flight toward Glasgow. The morning was unseasonably bright and clear, directly at odds with the mood and the music as we crossed over the Isle of Man. And I thought about Anthony Bourdain.

Ive written about Misty real name, John Tillman before, as he is one of the more perceptive analysts of the loneliness and separation of our times.  In his last album, Pure Comedy, he sang about the technological despair of a future marked by ephemeral relations, where we are bedding Taylor Swift every night inside the Oculus Rift, predicting that When the historians find us well be in our homes / Plugged into our hubs / Skin and bones / A frozen smile on every face. But theres another lyric that applies more to Bourdains situation: Can you believe how far weve come? / In the new age / Freedom to have what you want / In the new age well all be entertained / Rich or poor, the channels are all the same.

Bourdains suicide looks increasingly like an impulsive act.  There is no mention of a note. He hanged himself after a few days of work eating and filming with one of his best friends, fellow chef Eric Ripert, in a French village. He walked the cobblestone streets with his typical skinny aging rockstar lope. He took pictures with fans. He Instagramed his breakfast, with his normal ironic commentary (Bourdain famously hated Instagramming food, saying in 2014 Its bullshit. Its about making other people feel bad about what theyre eating. And a certain knowledge that what youre eating is more interesting.).

So in leaving us, Bourdain leaves behind more confusion than anything else. There are rumors, of course a fight with his girlfriend, a relapse to his famed drug use after years of not using but theres no evidence either is true. We dont know if he reached out to anyone before he went, or if he lied and said he was fine. As Misty sings on his new album: One more cryptic message / Thinking that I might end it / Oh god, you must have woken up / To me saying that its all too much / Ill take it easy with the morbid stuff.

From the outside perspective, Bourdain had it all: wealth, fame, a job where he traveled the world, dined with interesting people, was friends with chefs and presidents, ate the best food whether surrounded by finery or by a jungle, and could go anywhere and...

Bill Joy, Silicon Valley Visionary, on the Future of Batteries, Electric Airplanes, and the "Internet of Energy" "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

He says solid-state batteries will be cheaper than today's lithium-ion batteries and help move the grid to 100 percent renewables Photo: Ionic Materials

According to Silicon Valley visionary and Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy, much about the future of energy and climate change hinges on a simple question: How soon can the worlds electric grid get its battery pack?

As a partner in the Menlo Park, Calif. venture capital company Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers from 2005 to 2014, Joy says he focused on what they called the big hard aggressive goals or BHAGs. And from climate to water desalination to electric grid stability, the real challenges of BHAGs often circled back to cheap, safe, scalable, and reliable grid-scale energy storage.

Last month, Joy was in Woburn, Mass. for the ribbon cutting of new facilities for a solid state battery company hes an advisor to and investor in, Ionic Materials. Ionic Materials has developed a plastic electrolytethe medium in a battery through which energy-storing ions flow between cathode and anode and back again. This specially designed plastic conducts ions like a metal conducts electrons. And switching from todays flammable liquid electrolytes to flame-retardant solid electrolytes, the company says, could bring about a new generation of lighter, more powerful, non-flammable rechargeable devices.

Joy sat down with IEEE Spectrum for a conversation about the promise of solid-state lithium (and rechargeable alkaline) batteries, the internet of energy, and the coming electrification of airplanes.

IEEE Spectrum: As you have said, the English language doesnt have a single word for the kind of battery breakthrough thats needed a solid conductor of ions, a solid electrolyte.

Joy: Theres this evolution of language. Like we had telephone, and then we had the touch-tone phone. And then the phones that werent touch-tone suddenly were rotary phones. And then you called on cellphones. But now when you say phone you mean a mobile phone, and if you want to talk about the other phone you need to say landline.

Pocahontas Club Has Long-standing Preservation Role within Cherokee Nation "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Guest Commentary

Published June 11, 2018

The Indian Womens Pocahontas Club is Oklahomas oldest, continuous chartered club. Established in the summer of 1899 at Oowala, in the Cooweescoowee District of the Cherokee Nation in Indian Territory, it began as a past-time club for Native women returning home in the summers from seminaries and colleges. Today, the club remains active in cultural preservation and community service. Based in Claremore, the memberships dedication to Cherokee and local history is inspiring and commendable. More than a century since its inception, the women of the Pocahontas Club still gather to preserve Cherokee values.

Over the past 119 years, members of the Pocahontas Club have witnessed some of the most significant events in our tribes history, from the Dawes Act and allotment era to Oklahoma statehood and the resurgence in Cherokee patriotism and pride. One of their most famous members was renowned Cherokee writer and political pundit Will Rogers. Although men are no longer allowed as members, the club honors his memory by placing a wreath at his tomb on his birthday each year.

The Pocahontas Club has more than 150 members, all of whom are Cherokee. Club members serve as valuable caretakers of our culture, our heritage and our communities. The clubs primary mission is to maintain our Cherokee culture, coupled with a focus on supporting public education and community service. Toward that end, they offer higher education scholarships for Cherokee students and support the Boys and Girls Club of Chelsea with an art program.

In China, Social Credit System Forces Citizens Into Submission To The State

Ask Hackaday: What Color Are Your PCBs? "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A decade ago, buying a custom-printed circuit board meant paying a fortune and possibly even using a board houses proprietary software to design the PCB. Now, we all have powerful, independent tools to design circuit boards, and there are a hundred factories in China that will take your Gerbers and send you ten copies of your board for pennies per square inch. We are living in a golden age of printed circuit boards, and they come in a rainbow of colors. This raises the question: which color soldermask is most popular, which is most desirable, and why? Seeed Studio, a Chinese PCB house, recently ran a poll on the most popular colors of soldermask. This was compared to their actual sales data. Which PCB color is the most popular? It depends on who you ask, and how you ask it.

But first, lets examine the rainbow of PCB options. Seeeds Fusion PCB service offers six different colors of soldermask for every PCB order: white, black, red, blue, green, or yellow. These are the colors youll find at most board houses, and remain constant with few exceptions; OSH Park only offers purple, but you can get purple from a few other manufacturers. There are rumors of orange soldermask. Matte black and matte green are generally the seventh and eighth colors available from any PCB manufacturer. Weve seen pink PCBs in the wild, as well.



Exigen al gobierno de Oaxaca no simular ms frente a asesinato de fotoperiodista "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

Ciudad de Mxico | Desinformmonos. Organizaciones contra el feminicidio exigieron al gobierno de Oaxaca no simular ms y atender el caso del asesinato de Mara del Sol Cruz Jarqun, fotoperiodista de 27 aos, sucedido el 2 de junio pasado.

El Consorcio para el Dilogo Parlamentario y la Equidad de Gnero, junto con el Observatorio Ciudadano Nacional de Feminicidio, insisti en que es necesaria la destitucin e investigacin del ex titular de la Secretara de Asuntos Indgenas (SAI), Francisco Montero Lpez, por ser uno de los probables responsables del feminicidio y cometer, adems, varios delitos electorales.

Sin lugar a duda es de alta preocupacin el tratamiento que dar Alejandro Murat (gobernador de Oaxaca) a este feminicidio, ya que si no lo asume con la seriedad debida, corre el riesgo de quedar impune, tras solapar prcticas de corrupcin, desvo de recursos e impunidad, indicaron.

Agregaron que la Fiscala General del Estado debe fincar responsabilidad de manera inmediata a los responsables, tanto por accin como por omisin.

Lamentamos que la madre de Mara del Sol (la periodista Soledad Jarqun Edgar), tenga que iniciar el mismo camino que el resto de las madres de vctimas de feminicidio, dado que ni el PRI como partido responsable ni el gobernador del estado han tomado cartas en el asunto, expresaron los organismos civiles.

Mara del Sol Cruz Jarqun fue asesinada el pasado 2 de junio con siete tiros de bala en Juchitn, Oaxaca, junto con Pamela Tern, candidata a segundo concejal en Juchitn de Zaragoza por el PRI, y su primo Adelfo Guerra.

La vctima de 27 aos ya haba denunciado que fue amenazada con que perdera su empleo de jefe de comunicacin social de la SAI, cuyo ahora ex director, Francisco Javier Montero Lpez, presuntamente la comision para cubrir las actividades proselitistas de su hermano Hageo Montero Lpez, candidato del PRI a la presidencia municipal de Juchitn.

Tras el crimen, Montero Lpez renunci a su cargo.

The Neighborhood as Small Town "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The Kenmore of Akron, Ohio has what a lot of other neighborhoods would love to have: a well-defined and sizable commercial district, laid out along a main thoroughfare. This is no surprise, since Kenmore was a small town of its own up until the late 1920s, when it was annexed to the city of Akron.

As a result, a 1/3 mile stretch of Kenmore Boulevard remains as the vestige of the former citys downtown or central business district. While the businesses located there had generally been in decline over the past 50 years, and the area had become less pedestrian-friendly, the street still retains many of its best features. That included many older two or three-story commercial structures, built out to the sidewalk, and a curving broad boulevard separated by a median that once provided a right-of-way for streetcars. It doesnt take an expert to see that the area has great bones and that with a little hard work and imagination, it could be brought back to take advantage of its human scale, traditional small-town feel and potential as an economic hub for the neighborhood.

Tina Boyes heads the Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance, which serves as the areas Community Development Corporation (CDC). Shes explained that the Better Block program organized for the area in 2017 was the impetus for many of the positive things that are happening on the Boulevard today.

Better Block highlighted Kenmore Boulevards potential for economic development and placemaking, Boyes said. Residents, artists, small business owners and investors are now talking to each other and taking action to realize the potential for our neighborhood.

Even Though Net Neutrality Protections Are Ending, Congress Can Still Bring Them Back "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

June 11, 2018 is the day that the FCCs so-called Restoring Internet Freedom Order goes into effect. This represents the FCCs abdication of authority in upholding the hard-won net neutrality protections of the 2015 Open Internet Order. But this does not mean the fight is over.

While the FCC ignored the will of the vast majority of Americans and voted not to enforce bans on blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization, it doesnt get the final say. Congress, states, and the courts can all work to restore these protections. As we have seen, net neutrality needs and deserves as many strong protections as possible, be they state or federal. ISPs who control your access to the Internet shouldnt get to decide how you use it once you get online.

Three states (Oregon, Washington, and Vermont) have passed state net neutrality laws. Six more (Hawaii, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont) have executive orders doing the same. Overall, 35 states have some form of net neutrality protections in the works.

Congress can overturn the FCCs decision and reinstate the 2015 Open Internet Order with a simple majority vote under the Congressional Review Act (CRA). It passed the Senate on May 16 by a vote of 52-47. So now we have to ask the House of Representatives to follow suit. Even though House leadership has said they will not schedule a vote, one can still be called if a majority of representatives sign a discharge petition.

You can see where your representative stands and email them to support the CRA here. Now that the FCC repeal is in effect, we need to tell the House to restore protections and keep large ISPs from changing how we use the Internet.

Lunar Warming - Yup - Did That, Then "Hid" the Data. "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Science Alert has a story about a long running Lunar temperature measurement that apparently was lost and forgotten for decades.

Between 1971 and 1977, Apollo scientists conducting experiments on the Moon discovered that the surface of our li'l satellite buddy got mysteriously warmer. But the data from 1974 onwards went missing, and the strange warming phenomenon remained an enigma. The experiment was called the heat flow experiment, and it was designed to determine the rate at which the interior of the Moon loses heat.

Astronauts with Apollo 15 and 17 drilled holes into the lunar surface, up to depths of 2.3 metres, and probes measured the temperature at several depths in the holes.

These were long-term experiments, left in place after the astronauts departed, and transmitting data back to Earth.

The measurements revealed that the temperature of the moon at all measured depths got warmer from the date the experiment started in 1971 all the way till measurements ended in 1977.
That's a relatively short period of time on a planetary time frame. A rate of warming that rapid would have the moon surface incandescent well before we were began squabbling over who got to live in the best caves.

Various theories were put forth, but in the end people pretty much agreed it must be our fault.

Una campaa de spots a favor del aborto en Argentina "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

Los rostros y susurros de mujeres se superponen: Abort en una clnica. En una sala. Abort con misoprostol. Estaba sola. Con mi mam. Estaban mis amigas. Tuve una hemorragia. Sangr diez das. Tena miedo. Tena miedo. Estaba segura. Una fila de mujeres tomadas de la mano. Una de ellas, habla: Soy Milena, tengo 40. Del aborto hace muchos aos. Fue en Lans. Tom el colectivo 100.

Why Putin and Trump Will Align Against the NWO "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Authors note: The vast majority of the facts presented in this article have been repeatedly and publicly reported. There are only a couple instances where new confirming evicence is introduced and that is documented, but only done so to support the thesis of this report. This document is not meant to be a report with new information, but rather it is a dot-connecting exercise conducted for the purpose of predicting where America nd the rest of world are headed.
Thesis:The United States and Russia will soon join forces and new alliances will go by the wayside. The single determining factor will be the overt conflict between nationalism (supported by Russia and the United States) and globalism as supported by most of the world including the European Union. This could become the next cold war and perhaps even the next world war. 


Name the names of the Deep State, or I will! Will he do it? Who is on the list? Putin said this last year. He knows more than most American do about their own country. America stands alone. The G7, as a body, is condemning America First policies. Trading boycotts directed at America are coming. America will soon go it alone under Trump, except for one nation. And that nation is Russia.

In the following video, I summarize how the EU and the G7 are aligning against America in the same fashion that they have already conspired against Russia by kicking them out of the G8 and changing their name to the G7. This organization, which is a tool of the New World Order crowd, has devised and implemented, through their friends at the UN, a devastating Muslim immigration problem designed to destroy France, Italy, Germany and other first-world nations whose leaders will not police their borders under the threat of George Soros. Much of Europe is destroyed  and now the G7 is trying to ensnare both Russia and the United States in the same trap.

The Tories can't blame anyone else for the High Street apocalypse they're created "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

After the department store House of Fraser's announced that they're shutting down half of their outlets a load of Tory apologists suddenly began astroturfing the Internet to posit the most absurd excuses for it.

One of the most common excuses was that department stores like House of Fraser simply can't compete with online retailers like Amazon and Ebay.

The obvious flaw in this line of defence is that there's nothing more inherently efficient about online retailers, especially given the extra transportation overheads of running millions of deliveries to customer's houses, often several separate deliveries per order!

Of course online retailers are often cheaper than high street stores, but the price difference has little to do with inherent efficiency, and a lot more to do with the fact that they've been getting away with paying almost zero tax on their British profits for the last decade.

This taxation disparity is a problem that is attributable to the Tory government that has not only failed to rectify the problem in their 8 years in power, but has also repeatedly intervened to obstruct international efforts to clamp down on the worst tax-dodgers of all.

Another factor that critically undermines this "natural consequence of online retailing" argument is the subsequent total collapse of Poundworld just a few days later.

Bike-Driven Scarf Knitter is an Accessory to Warmth "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Despite all our technological achievements, humans still spend a lot of time waiting around for trains. Add a stiff winter breeze to the injury of commuting, and youve got a classic recipe for misery. [George Barratt-Jones] decided to inject some warmth into this scene by inviting people to knit a free scarf for themselves by riding a bike.

All a person has to do is ride the Cyclo-Knitter for five minutes and marvel at their handiwork. By the time the scarf is finished, theyve cycled past being cold, and they have something to hold in the warmth. Cyclo-Knitter is essentially an Addi Express knitting machine being belt-driven by a stationary bike. Power is transferred from the bike through large, handmade wooden gears using old bike tire inner tubes as belts. [George] built a wooden tower to hold the machine and give the growing scarf a protected space to dangle.

We love the utility of this project as much as the joy it inspires in everyone who tries it. Check out their scarves and their reactions after the break. We havent seen people this happy to see something they werent expecting since that billboard that kills Zika mosquitoes.

En nombre del Comit 68, Hernndez Gamundi demand a los candidatos a la presidencia que se pronuncien sobre este tema (las matanzas del 10 de junio de 1971 y del 2 de octubre de 1968).

Why would North Korea believe US assurances? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Much attention is being paid to the summit meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. The one-on-one meeting with just translators present begins at 9:00am Tuesday morning Singapore time which is 9:00pm ET Monday night. Aides and national security advisors will join them later. We know for certain that whatever the outcome, the summit will be a great success. Why? Because Trump will tell everyone that it was. He will tell us that it was the biggest and greatest summit meeting ever, even if the final deal is that the US agrees to give Alaska and Manhattan to North Korea and the meeting ends with Kim mooning Trump.

Secretary of state Mike Pompeo seems to think that the US can offer sufficient incentives to get something significant in return from North Korea, without specifying exactly what is being offered or what the word denuclearization implies.

It is the case we are prepared to give security assurances necessary for the North Koreans to engage in denuclearisation, Pompeo told reporters. We are prepared to take actions that will provide them sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearisation isnt something that ends badly for them.

He added: We are prepared to make security assurances that are different, [more] unique than, what America has been willing to provide previously. We think this is both necessary and appropriate.

One big question is why the North Koreans would believe any assurances that the US gives them. The history of the US is riddled with so many cases of interfering with the internal affairs of other nations, overthrowing governments, and making agreements only to unilaterally renege on them when they were no longer convenient. The word of the US government cannot be trusted. Trump has made this even clearer than his more smooth-talking predecessors.

The other related question is what the North Koreans would gain by giving up their nuclear weapons, which is clearly what the US seems to be aiming for. The North Koreans have got the US to take them seriously only because they have nuclear weapons. Without them, they would long ago have met the fate of Iraq, Libya, and the many other countries that have been destabilized and invaded. Trump could promise them financial incentives for complete denuclearization such as lifting the trade sanctions but North Korea has resisted such offers before and although from the outside life seems grim in this very authoritarian state, the country seems to somehow get along. Would they accept short-term financial gain for long-term uncertainty about the threat of a US attack or invasion? On a more personal level, would Kim tak...


Pocket Projector Uses Raspberry Pi "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

[janrinok:] We covered a story a few months ago regarding a watch that also contained a projector which could be used to show an enlarged image on any nearby surface, including the hand that is wearing the watch. Well somebody decided to look a little more closely at making his own small projector - although not quite to the same degree of miniaturisation.

Who doesnt want a pocket projector? Nothing will impress a date more than being able to whip out a PowerPoint presentation of your latest trip to the comic book convention. The key to [MickMake] build is the $100 DLP2000EVM evaluation module from Texas Instruments. This is an inexpensive light engine, and perfect for rolling your own projector. You can see the result in the video below.

If you dont need compactness, you could drive the module with any Rasberry Pi or even a regular computer. But to get that pocket form factor, a Pi Zero W fits the bill. A custom PCB from [MickMake] lets the board fit in with the DLP module in a very small form factor. DLP chips use lots of microscopic mirrors that you can move roughly 20 degrees under computer control. So you can reflect light into the lens or bounce it away so it makes the image black. For color, an RGB LED cycles through the primary colors and you have to time your mirror movements to the color you want to project. Of course, the module takes care of all this for you behind the scenes.

The module can output up to 30 lumens (by default, though, it is 20 lumens) and has I2C and 8/16/24-bit parallel RGB video interfaces. If you dont want to go with a custom board, the device supports the BeagleBone Black right out of the box. The DLP resolution is nHD. That is the mirror array is 640360. While you might think the n stands for not, it actually stands for ninth, as in one-ninth. The current release of the adapter board lacks an audio amplifier, although that may change in a future release. For now, you can play audio from the Pi via Bluetooth.

Raining! "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Were in the middle of one of those summer thunderstorms you know, the constant rumble, a deluge of rain, occasional flashes of lightning arcing against a light gray sky. I did my rounds this morning, going to the gym, tending to fish, getting soaked to the bone despite carrying an umbrella (they are useless when its windy), and I passed through the science building atrium, which is roofed with these large skylights that rumble when the rain drums on it, and caught a quick video on my phone. It doesnt do it justice I should go in with my good microphone and just capture the sound for an hour or two. Its very soothing.

Important safety tip: the science atrium is not the place to hang out if there is a tornado alert. Any other time, its great, but during a tornado it might just rain shards of glass.

A new system optimises electric transmission from offshore wind farms "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Scientists from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have designed a new control system for wind turbines in offshore wind farms that allows power transmission to the coast in a more flexible and cheaper way than current solutions.

This innovation allows the use of a diode rectifier station in the offshore platform of a high voltage direct current (HVDC) link. In this way, the turbines alternating current (AC) can be easily converted into direct current (DC) for HVDC transmission.

The researchers have developed a distributed control system to synchronise and regulate the electrical voltage and frequency of the of the . This allows the transmission of energy to the general network through an HVDC link with a diode rectifier station. It is less complicated, cheaper and more flexible than other current solutions, explains co-author Santiago Arnaltes Gmez, head of the UC3M Power Control Group.


In desert trials, next-generation water harvester delivers fresh water from air "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Last October, a University of California, Berkeley, team headed down to the Arizona desert, plopped their newest prototype water harvester into the backyard of a tract home and started sucking water out of the air without any power other than sunlight.

The successful field test of their larger, next-generation harvester proved what the team had predicted earlier in 2017: that the harvester can extract drinkable water every day/night cycle at very low humidity and at low cost, making it ideal for people living in arid, water-starved areas of the world.

There is nothing like this, said Omar Yaghi, who invented the technology underlying the harvester. It operates at ambient temperature with ambient sunlight, and with no additional energy input you can collect water in the desert. This laboratory-to-desert journey allowed us to really turn water harvesting from an interesting phenomenon into a science.

Soccer League Turns App Users Into Piracy Spies "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Even though sports streaming services are widely available in most countries, people are not always willing to pay for them.

This applies to individuals, who turn to pirate sites or other unauthorized channels, but also to businesses such as bars and restaurants.

The latter group is seen as a thorn in the side by many rightsholders. This includes the Spanish soccer league La Liga, which broadcasts some of the most viewed matches in the world.

In an effort to curb this type of piracy, La Liga has recently started to use modern technology, and its users, to its advantage. In an unprecedented move, the soccer league has turned its official Android app into a piracy spying machine.

The app in question, which has been installed by millions of users, will use the microphone and GPS readings of the devices its installed on to report possible instances of streaming piracy.

With consent from the user, the app will analyze the audio in its surroundings to check if one of La Ligas matches is being played. It then pairs that with GPS data to see if that location is an authorized broadcaster.

Protect your team, users read when they are prompted to enable this type of data collection.

The unusual functionality is detailed in the privacy policy which mentions tackling piracy as one of the main purposes.

The purposes for which this functionality will be used are: (i) to develop statistical patterns on soccer consumption and (ii) to detect fraudulent operations of the retransmissions of LaLiga football matches (piracy).

The microphone will only be activated when La Liga is broadcasting its football matches, the policy further clarifies.

The spying tool was spotted by, which reached out to La Liga for additional information.

The Spanish soccer league informed the publication that nobody accesses the audio fragments captured by the microphone as the audio automatically becomes a signal, a binary code. This happens only in Spain and without storing any recording or content.

UK: Protestors Block Road for More Than 28 Hours to Stop Work on Access Road of Opencast Site in County Durham "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Freedom News

Photo credit: Simone Rudolphi / Campaign to Protect Pont Valley

Protestors fighting against a new opencast coal mine in County Durham have blocked the road in a rolling resistance for more than 28 hours to prevent the mining company, Banks group, to finish building the access road. At 8:30 pm on Saturday 2nd of June, the first pair of protestors were blockading with a lock-on device on the closed lane of the A692 between Leadgate and Dipton, in front of the Bradley opencast site. No traffic was affected.

At 6pm the next day, two new protestors locked-on in the same lane whilst the original pair was still in place. All protestors have now been arrested. Work stopped at 8:30 pm on Saturday and is yet to recommence.

Simon Daniels, one of the protestors locked-on says I spent four years studying the science behind climate change. Today, I am taking the data to its logical implications. Coal has got to stop. My actions are necessary.

Protestors say that it is essential to stop Banks Group from building the access road to ensure that the opencast does not go ahead. They say that the mine will have devastating effects on the health of the community as well as irreversible impacts on the environment. A number of protestors, including local residents, have taken direct action to delay Banks in their work.

At yesterdays action, the police chose not to manhandle the first pair of protestors, and instead called in the help of the fire brigade rather than that of a specialist cutting team, to free the arms of the protestors who were locked-in.

Campaigners disapprove of the involvement of the fire brigade: they argue that a specialised cutting team should have been dealing with the lock-on devices as the lives of the protestors were not endangered. Robyn Clogg, a local resident o...


Oil Kingdom In Crisis: Saudi Royal Family Rift Turns Violent- Sadr couldnt visit. "IndyWatch Feed War"

 In case you are wondering. Sadr is, in my opinion, completely owned by the empire. He offers no hope for Iraqi unity or regional stability- Just the guarantee of Iraqs dissolution.
 And continuing turmoil in the region. Maliki would have been better for regional stability. Which is why the US pushed him out!

"Saudi Arabia has plunged its immediate region into major strategic uncertainty. What can only be described as a serious outbreak of shooting in the Royal Palace in Riyadh on April 21, 2018, was the catalyst for events which could determine the fate of the Crown, the Kingdom, and the regional competition, particularly with Iran, for influence.

By June 1, 2018, however, the crisis seemed to be subsiding. (or not)

The delicacy of the situation posed serious questions for Russia, the Peoples Republic of China (PRC), and the US, in particular, in shaping their strategies, given that it raised serious questions over energy supply, the war in Yemen, control of the Red Sea, and the Eurasia-Africa links in the PRCs Silk Route network. It is clear that the Saudi Government, controlled by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, itself was, even by early June 2018, uncertain how the situation would evolve.
Gregory Copley, of Defense &Foreign Affairs, noted on December 12, 2017: Saudi Arabia now appears to have moved beyond the point of recovery, and could collapse at any time into internal conflict or fracturing. On October 8, 2015, he noted: Concerns are growing within Saudi Arabia that the Kingdom is facing systemic challenges which could see its break-up within a decade or two.

Matters came to a head on the evening of April 21, 2018, when heavy automatic weapons fire was heard over a fairly long timespan, coming from the compound of the Al-Khazami Palace in the neighborhood of Khuzama, in Riyadh. Government officials issued a report that the shooting was by Palace guards, firing at a civilian toy drone (unmanned aerial vehicle) which had strayed into forbidden airspace over the Palace. However, it was clear that some of the firing occurred within the Palace itself.

There were a significant number of casualties, and Riyadh had some discreet but clearly high-level funerals in the days which followed, although no announcements were subsequently made (even by early June 2018) of the deaths of any senior officials. It was understood that some visiting and very senior princes and officials were in the Palace with their armed bodyguards at the...

Was there an unannounced missile launch on Whidbey Island early on Sunday morning? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Greg Johnson of Skunk Bay Weather on the northern Kitsap Peninsula has one of the most impressive weather cam facilities in the nation, including high quality digital cameras photographing the clouds at night.  He is an extremely reliable weather observer.

But early Sunday morning he picked up something that is both startling and unexpected:  what looks like a missile launch from Whidbey Island.

Here is the picture (with a 20-second exposure) at 3:56 AM Sunday morning from one of his cameras (looking north towards Whidbey Island).  Can you see the bright vertical streak on the left side of the figure?   Note the illumination both inside and outside the cloud.  It really looks like the ascent of a rocket.

Greg provided me with a close up of the top portion of the image (see below).   Really looks like an ascending missile.

For your orientation, the map below shows the location of the Skunk Bay camera (red circle) and Whidbey Island Naval Air Station (blue circle)

I have never heard of rocket launches from Whidbey Island Air station in Oak Harbor.   And checking online, I can not find any discussion of this feature.

This feature does not look like a meteor, nor are there any meteor reports for the area that I could find online.  The lightning networks did not show a strike in that area.

Controlling the Heights: Great Power Competition in Nepal "IndyWatch Feed War"


Nepal is a relatively small, land-locked agricultural state squeezed between China and India, Asias main rising powers. While its importance is limited on its own, in the context of ongoing Sino-India competition Nepal holds a greater geopolitical significance. As a matter of fact, it is a typical example of buffer state between two great powers. But for a buffer zone to preserve its nature, a fundamental requirement must be respected: none of the two neighbors should have a prominent role in its affairs. In other words, there must be a mutually acceptable status quo. If the buffer state starts leaning toward one power, the equilibrium is put at risk as the other will consider it an extension of its competitor, and therefore as a potential threat.

Recent geopolitical developments indicate that this may well be the case in Nepal; the equilibrium is straining, with potential ramifications for the region and beyond.



Originally a Kingdom within the sphere of influence of the British Empire, Nepal began facing serious political troubles in 1996, when a Maoist insurgency triggered a civil war that lasted 10 years. In 2008, two years after the end of the conflict, the monarchy was abolished and Nepal became a federal democratic republic. In the short term, this did not have much of an effect on the countrys foreign policy, and especially towards India. Nepal maintained friendly (and some even say subordinate) relations with its large southern neighbor for decades.

Bad .Men at .Work. Please Dont .Click "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Web site names ending in new top-level domains (TLDs) like .men, .work and .click are some of the riskiest and spammy-est on the Internet, according to experts who track such concentrations of badness online. Not that there still arent a whole mess of nasty .com, .net and .biz domains out there, but relative to their size (i.e. overall number of domains) these newer TLDs are far dicier to visit than most online destinations.

There are many sources for measuring domain reputation online, but one of the newest is The 10 Most Abused Top Level Domains list, run by Currently at the #1 spot on the list (the worst) is .men: Spamhaus says of the 65,570 domains it has seen registered in the .men TLD, more than half (55 percent) were bad.

According to Spamhaus, a TLD may be bad because it is tied to spam or malware dissemination (or both). More specifically, the badness of a given TLD may be assigned in two ways:

The ratio of bad to good domains may be higher than average, indicating that the registry could do a better job of enforcing policies and shunning abusers. Or, some TLDs with a high fraction of bad domains may be quite small, and their total number of bad domains could be relatively limited with respect to other, bigger TLDs. Their total badness to the Internet is limited by their small total size.

More than 1,500 TLDs exist today, but hundreds of them were introduced in just the past few years. The nonprofit organization that runs the domain name space the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) enabled the new TLDs in response to requests from advertisers and domain speculators even though security experts warned that an onslaught of new, far cheaper TLDs would be a boon mainly to spammers and scammers.

And what a boon it has been. The newer TLDs are popular among spammers and scammers alike because domains in many of these TLDs can be had for pennies apiece. But not all of the TLDs on Spamhaus list are prized for being cheaper than generic TLDs (like .com, .net, etc.). The cheapest domains at half of Spamhaus top ten baddest TLDs go for prices between $6 and $14.50 per domain.

Still, domains in the remaining five Top Bad TLDs can be had for between 48 cents and a dollar each.

Uno de los funcionarios ms cuestionables de la administracin de Donald Trump al frente de la presidencia de los Estados Unidos ha sido, desde el inicio, Scott Pruitt, el jefe de la Agencia de Proteccin Ambiental (EPA, por sus siglas en ingls). Investigado desde hace meses por diversas irregularidades, en los ltimos das se dio a conocer un nuevo detalle negativo sobre su historial.

Se trata de una investigacin difundida la semana pasada por The Washington Post que demostrara que el funcionario de la Casa Blanca aprovech su cargo para beneficiar a su esposa. Especificamente, Pruitt habra escrito a uno de los administradores de la cadena de comida rpida Chick-fil-A para hablarle de una oportunidad de negocios que implicaba conseguir trabajo a su esposa, Marlyn Pruitt.

Aunque la reunin no se habra concretado, un representante de Chick-fil-A reconoci que hubo de parte del jefe del EPA un inters por reunirse. El objetivo, asegur el trabajador de esta compaa, era convertir a la esposa de Pruitt en socia de la franquicia. A primera vista, una maniobra irregular tomando en cuenta el cargo que ocupa actualmente en la Casa Blanca.

Este escndalo se sumara a la larga lista de irregularidades que persiguen a Scott Pruitt desde inicios del 2017. Recordemos que actualmente el jefe del EPA es investigado por rentar un apartamento a precio por debajo del mercado estando el inmueble vinculado a un grupo de poder del sector petrolero.

Kim Jong Un Comes To The Nuclear Summit With A Deceptively Strong Hand "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Okay folks, tomorrows the day. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet in Singapore, marking the first time a sitting U.S. president has met with the leader of North Korea since the countrys founding in 1948 by Kims grandfather, Kim Il Sung.

Kim is no doubt doing his grandpa proud, not only by realizing the founders aspirations that his country would one day obtain nuclear weapons, but by winning recognition from the international community.

Of course, the international community, especially South Korea, doesnt see it that way.

To them, Kim is finally coming to his senses about Pyongyangs illicit nuclear program coming hat in hand, apologizing for his folly. But the reality is that Kim terrified the world with the uptick in nuclear and ballistic missiles tests over the last two years, and the world is anxious, even desperate, to get him to stop.

Thats a dangerous negotiating position to be in, and its dangerous for Americas allies as well. Japanese President Shinzo Abe met with Trump in Washington last Thursday to talk about tomorrows summit. Abe is, not surprisingly, worried that the United States will end up easing up on Trumps policy of maximum pressure on Pyongyang without getting any major concessions in return. And while Trump likes to talk tough, and probably considers himself to have the upper hand after he unexpectedly called off the summit last month, he also said last week that he doesnt want to talk about maximum pressure anymore, even though those measures remain in place.

Ultimately, what everyone wants to know is what will happen tomorrow. Despite all the speculation and theres a lot of it no one really knows how this whole thing will play out. We know that former NBA star and all-around weirdo Dennis Rodman will be there (in 2013, Rodman declared the North Korean dictator was his friend for life). We know that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the U.S. will offer North Korea unique security assurances in return for a complete and irreversible dismantling of its nuclear program. Pompeo also said that Kim personally assured him that hes willing to give up his countrys nukes....


Cuando puede ganar la que ya no es izquierda "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

El proceso histrico de derechizacin o desizquierdizacin que hemos padecido puede medirse en el mediano plazo por el desplazamiento ideolgico respecto de los debates de los aos 60, cuando se discuta, por ejemplo, la tesis de la existencia o no del partido comunista en tanto cabeza del proletariado, mientras que, medio siglo despus, estamos preguntndonos si existe todava una izquierda poltico-electoral que merezca este apelativo ms all de la jerga periodstica o de la geometra politolgica.

Vivimos la paradoja -que no es tan inslita a la luz de lo ocurrido, por ejemplo, en Brasil con Lula en 2002- de que cuando ms cerca de conquistar el poder estatal se encuentra la oposicin colocada a la izquierda del espectro partidario, sus rasgos alternativos y antisistmicos se reducen al punto de aparecer imperceptibles y viceversa, como exaltan los idelogos del obradorismo, se asume que la desizquierdizacin es la condicin sine qua non y la nica estrategia posible para ganar. Por otra parte, si alguna vez existi y pes la izquierda del obradorismo, su ponderacin relativa no puede no haber sido afectada por el desplazamiento orgnico y programtico iniciado hace aos y que se aceler de forma vertiginosa en los ltimos meses. Tampoco se puede confiar ciegamente en las respetables bases plebeyas y nacional-populares de Morena las cuales por ser tales no son automticamente capaces de autodeterminacin e insubordinacin, aunque sean potencialmente portadoras de demandas y de identidades que pueden eventualmente orientarse y canalizarse en esta direccin.

En nuestro sangriento Mxico pre-electoral, frente a la circunstancia indita de que finalmente puede ganar la que ya no es izquierda, rondan dos fantasmas que nos heredaron nuestros ancestros izquierdistas y que, por ello, son parte de nosotros: el del oportunismo y el del sectarismo. Al mismo tiempo, en esta apremiante coyuntura, frente a ellos se erigen concretas inteligencias colectivas que parecen estar prevaleciendo. Como contraparte al oportunismo de aquellas franjas polticas y sociales a las cuales AMLO y Morena abrieron las puertas, aparece de forma potente el sentido de la oportunidad histrica que hace que muchos sectores sociales, incluidas numerosas organizaciones sociales y grupos de afinidad ms izquierdista, decidan llamar a votar, voten sin hacer alharaca o, en todo caso, no descalifiquen a quienes decidan hacerlo. Este anticlimtico y reflexivo sentido de responsabilidad histrica y poltica marca, para bien y para mal, una distancia epocal respecto de los entusiasmos radicalizados de 2006. Se percibe una escptica y pragmtica inteligencia colectiva que, en buena medida sobredeterminada por el espritu de sobrevivencia y por la percepcin del peligro que vivimos, contiene, reprime y suspende las pulsiones sectarias sin caer en el oportunismo.

Anbal Quijano y los movimientos anti-sistmicos "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

La reciente desaparicin de Anbal Quijano (1928-2018) ha sido una oportunidad para recordar algunas de sus ms notables contribuciones al pensamiento emancipatorio, en particular desde que acu el concepto de colonialidad del poder.

Como seala la antroploga Rita Laura Segato, los trabajos de Quijano representan un viraje en la historia del pensamiento crtico de la dcada de 1970, que fue posible por el quiebre de la polaridad capitalismo-comunismo con el fin de la Unin Sovitica.

Del conjunto de anlisis de Quijano quisiera rescatar apenas uno, aquel vinculado a la heterogeneidad de las sociedades colonizadas en Amrica Latina, ya que siento que encarna un aporte importante a los movimientos populares del continente. En efecto, la heterogeneidad histrico-estructural de la existencia social, no puede ser aprehendida con las categoras marxistas. En este sentido, es necesario rescatar el marxismo de su larga prisin eurocntrica, como sostiene Segato.

Mientras en Europa la principal forma de control del trabajo es el salario, en nuestro continente existen cinco formas: esclavitud, servidumbre, pequeo emprendimiento familiar, reciprocidad y salario. Aunque todas estn subordinadas al mercado capitalista, la heterogeneidad de formas de vida/trabajo impide la construccin de un sujeto anti-capitalista homogneo, tal como sostiene la teora de crtica de corte eurocntrico.

La primera consecuencia para los movimientos que luchan por cambiar el mundo, es que no funciona, y esto lo destaca especialmente Quijano, una imagen del cambio que consiste en la salida del escenario histrico de una totalidad unitaria/homognea para que su lugar lo ocupe otra totalidad igualmente unitaria/homognea.

Esta ha sido la imagen dominante en el pensamiento crtico, que supona que la revolucin consista en la derrota definitiva del capitalismo como una totalidad y el comienzo de la construccin de una sociedad diferente, socialista en camino hacia el comunismo. La mencionada heterogeneidad, evidente en nuestra Amrica Latina, torna imposible que las sociedades se muevan enteras en una misma direccin.

La segunda cuestin deriva de la anterior. Ante esta realidad los revolucionarios tienen dos caminos: o trabajan para potenciar la homogeneidad de sus sociedades, cuestin que a menudo han intentado hacer desde arriba, con lo que se comportan de modo desptico y neo-colonial, o bien aceptan la heterogeneidad y aceptan que cada pueblo camine segn su propio ritmo y sus modos. No habr una salida conjunta de todos los sectores de la sociedad del capitalismo actual, sino procesos diferentes en cada regin y en cada pueblo, que no pueden ser encorsetados en procesos idnticos de cambio.

Robert De Niro Just Handed Trumps 2020 Campaign A Blank Check "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Sunday night was the 72nd Tony Awards, the annual ceremony thats supposed to celebrate the best of Broadway. But whats being talked about more than any of the winners or nominees, co-hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles, or even a moving performance from the Parkland students was the unhinged anti-Trump tirade made by Robert De Niro.

De Niro stepped on the stage to give a simple introduction to Bruce Springsteens Tony-nominated show, and immediately off the rails.

Im gonna say one thing Fk Trump, De Niro declared with his fists in the air. Its no longer Down with Trump, its Fk Trump!'

Not surprisingly, his remarks were welcomed with cheers and a standing ovation. Like most award shows, theyre attended by liberals who have had nothing but animosity towards Trump after he announced his candidacy in 2015. And theyve made their hatred for him obvious at virtually every single award show ever since. These awards shows were no longer about the craft of creating such art, theyve become about Trump.

De Niro himself has made several off-the-wall attacks against the president from calling him a mutt and the jerkoff-in-chief among other things to saying hed like to punch him in the face. He even said hes beyond seeing the point of view of Trump supporters. He has truly gone off the deep end. But sadly, thats par for the course in Hollywood.

Just within the last several days alone, we had Bill Maher hoping for another recession because a crashing economy can hurt Trumps reelection chances.

Sorry if that hurts people, Maher told his audience, but its either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.

We might have hit peak Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Maher has openly called for the financial pain and suffering millions of Americans would face if they were hit with another recession, simply because he believes that would prevent Trump from winning a second term. Its easy for a rich millionaire to say who likely wasnt much affected if at all by the 2008 recession, but many of his fans surely were.

That came roughly a week after Full Frontal host Samantha Bee trashed Ivanka Trump for posting a picture on her social media accounts of her and her infant son amid an emotional immigration debate, calling her a feckless ct. Unlike Roseanne Barr, whose racist tweet got her show cancelled, Bee offered an apology that was hollow at best. But aside from temporarily losing a couple of sponsors, she didnt face any consequences.

Whats so remarkable about De Niro, Maher, and Bee is that they seemed to have learned absolutely nothing from the 2016 election. Their overzealous animus for Trump had alienated his supporters, many of whom previously voted for President Obama in prior elections...

Hacking When It Counts: The Magnetron Goes to War "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In 1940, England was in a dangerous predicament. The Nazi war machine had been sweeping across Europe for almost two years, claiming countries in a crescent from Norway to France and cutting off the island from the Continent. The Battle of Britain was raging in the skies above the English Channel and southern coast of the country, while the Blitz ravaged London with a nightly rain of bombs and terror. The entire country was mobilized, prepared for Hitlers inevitable invasion force to sweep across the Channel and claim another victim.

Weve seen before that no idea that could possibly help turn the tide was considered too risky or too wild to take a chance on. Indeed, many of the ideas that sprang from the fertile and desperate minds of British inventors went on to influence the course of the war in ways they could never have been predicted. But there was one invention that not only influenced the war but has a solid claim on being its key invention, one without which the outcome of the war almost certainly would have been far worse, and one that would become a critical technology of the post-war era that would lead directly to innovations in communications, material science, and beyond. And the risks taken to develop this idea, the cavity magnetron, and field usable systems based on it are breathtaking in their scope and audacity. Heres how the magnetron went to war.

Short But Powerful

For most of the early days of radio, most of the innovation was geared toward providing communication at a distance. Whether it be radiotelegraphy, radiotelephony, or even radio broadcasting, distance was the driver. The further a single transmitter could reach, the fewer links would be required to make a communicate between any two points, and the larger the audience that could be reached with a broadcast. Due to the physics of radio frequency propagation, this put all the action in the longer wavelengths, the space on the spectrum with wavelengths between about 10 meters and 100 meters or so.

Some researchers were looking further up the spectrum, where wavelengths better measured in centimeters are found. These frequencies wouldnt be of much use for long-haul communications or broadcasting, but they needed to be explored and exploited, and so the tools and technologies needed to produce them would have to be developed.

This month marks one year since AMD returned to delivering high-performance server CPUs with the debut of their EPYC 7000 series processor line-up. It's been a triumphant period for AMD with the successes over the past year of their EPYC family. Over the past year, the Linux support has continued to improve with several EPYC/Zen CPU optimizations, ongoing Zen compiler tuning, CPU temperature monitoring support within the k10temp driver, and general improvements to the Linux kernel that have also helped out EPYC. In this article is a comparison of a "2017" Linux software stack as was common last year to the performance now possible if using the bleeding-edge software components. These Linux benchmarks were done with the EPYC 7351P, 7401P, and 7601 processors.

The Tories are actually trying to spin their anti-Muslim bigotry scandal as a vote winner! "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

After the Muslim Council of Britain and several senior Conservatives demanded an investigation into anti-Muslim prejudice in the Tory party, many on the left have been quick to point out the tiny flicker of mainstream media coverage on the issue in relation to the massive Labour anti-Semitism furore before the local elections.

The discrepancy in coverage is obvious, but it should come as no surprise at all given the relentless pro-Tory anti-Corbyn bias that not only dominates the print media, but also thrives on the supposedly neutral BBC too.

The allegations of widespread Islamophobia in the Tory ranks and specific accusations of anti-Muslim discrimination against Michael Gove and the Tory leadership should surely be getting more media coverage, but the reason these stories aren't getting much traction are obvious.

Of course mainstream media journalists don't want to scrutinise Tory Islamophobia to the same extent they attacked Labour over allegations of anti-Semitism. Firstly such scrutiny would run entirely counter to the mainstream media groupthink objective of protecting the neoliberal status quo by working to oust Jeremy Corbyn, and secondly "the Tory party is over-run with bigots" is really more of a common sense assertion rather than a groundbreaking news story anyway, isn't it?

The Only Weakness Of The Golden State Warriors Is Their Strength "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Ben Franklin definitely did not envision basketball playoffs when inventing his famous proverb about fish and guests, but his axiom applied to this years NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors 4-0 sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers could lead one to believe that championship rematches spoil after three series.

While two of the four games appeared close for a time, the series outcome never seemed in doubt after the initial match. In an event that will go down in finals infamy, Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith, retrieving his teammates missed free throw with seconds remaining in a tie game, did nothing. Thinking the Cavaliers ahead, he dribbled out the final few seconds, sending the game to overtime, and then the Warriors dominated.

Having failed in their attempt to steal a game on Golden States home turf, the Cavaliers never had a better chance to shift the series in their favor. Instead, the next three games seemed like a journey to a preordained conclusion the Warriors third championship in four seasons.

A New Dynasty?

Since June 2015, Stephen Curry and the Warriors have played LeBron James and the Cavaliers in 22 NBA Finals games. Having attended the first of these games in 2015, I could not have predicted the twists and turns that this rivalry would take over the course of those four years and 21 subsequent contests.

I grew fond of the Warriors during the 2014-15 season through their distinct style of basketball. While Pele popularized the term The Beautiful Game to describe soccer, the Warriors themselves play a beautiful, almost artistic style of basketball. Their offense becomes a ballet of motion, a whirling dervish of activity both the ball itself, and the players moving with, and without, the ball.

Golden States brand of basketball quickly revolutionized the NBA. The Warriors put a premium on a free-flowing offense, aiming to average at least 300-320 passes per game, or an average of about three per offensive possession. Golden State also used analytics to recognize the value of the three-point shot, and helped build their team around it.

In 2014-15, Golden States new look basketball got them to a league-best 66-16 record, and their first NBA title in four decades. Cu...


Automation Wont Take Your Job Until The Next Recession Threatens It "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Good news! Automation capable of erasing white collar jobs is coming, but not for a decade or more. And thats also the bad news because interest in automation accelerates during economic downturns, so once tech that can take your job arrives youll already have lived through another period of economic turmoil that may already have cost you your job.

That lovely scenario was advanced yesterday by professor Mirko Draca of The London School of Economics, who yesterday told Huaweis 2018 Asia-Pacific Innovation Day 2018 that the world is currently in an era of investment and experimentation with technology. The effects of such eras, he said, generally emerge ten to fifteen years in the future.

Innovation in the 1980s therefore sparked the PC and internet booms of the mid-to-late 1990s, and were still surfing [SIC - suffering?] the changes they unleashed. Our current era of mobile tech doesnt measure up to the radical 1990s, he said, as shown by the fact that productivity gains appear to have stalled for a decade or more.

[...] We predict that AI and robotics will lead to some sort of productivity surge in ten to fifteen years, he said, adding that there is no clear evidence that a new wave of technologies that threaten jobs has started.

But he also said that it will once businesses see the need to control costs.

Experts warn hackers have already stolen over $20 Million from Ethereum clients exposing interface on port 8545 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Cybercriminal group has managed to steal a total of 38,642 Ether, worth more than $20,500,000, from clients exposing the unsecured interface on port 8545.

Cybercriminals have raked over 20 million dollars in the past few months by hijacking poorly configured Ethereum nodes exposed online are continuing their operations.

In March, security experts from Qihoo 360 Netlab reported a hacking campaign aimed at Ethereum nodes exposed online, crooks were scanning for port 8545 to find wallets that exposed their JSON-RPC.

According to the researchers, the cybercrime gang stole 3.96234 Ether (between $2,000  and $3,000)., but currently, they have tracked another criminal gang that already stolen an amazing amount of funds that are available in their wallets.

Researchers claim the cybercriminal group has managed to steal a total of 38,642 Ether, worth more than $20,500,000.

If you have honeypot running on port 8545, you should be able to see the requests in the payload, which has the wallet addresses, states Qihoo 360 Netlab team. And there are quite a few IPs scanning heavily on this port now.

Geth is a popular client for running Ethereum node allowing users to manage them remotely through the JSON-RPC interface.

Developers can use this programmatic API to build applications that can retrieve private keys, transfer funds, or retrieve personal details of the owner of the wallet.

The hackers moved stolen funds to the Ethereum account having the address 0x957cD4Ff9b3894FC78b5134A8DC72b032fFbC464.


Video: Mariyady, the priest investigating the corporate takeover of indigenous peoples forests in Borneo "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

In the village of Tewah, in the heart of Indonesian Borneo, stands a wooden church named Immanuel. When the church was founded by German missionaries more than a century ago, Tewah would have been a very different place, surrounded by impenetrable rainforest, and accessible only via the Kahayan, a giant river flowing down from the mountains in the centre of the island. Today, Tewah is connected to surrounding villages by deeply rutted roads that cut through increasingly fragmented forests. Its narrow streets are dotted with shops that buy and sell gold, dredged up from the riverbeds by young indigenous men. The current custodian of the church is Mariyady, a charismatic priest with a young family and a Cheshire Cat smile. We heard about Mariyady in the nearby village of Sare Rangan, whose residents were navigating the complexities of a rapidly changing life, after discovering that their land had been licensed to a plantation firm to grow oil palms on a massive scale. The license was one of five issued by then district chief Hambit Bintih in 2012. These licenses were the subject of a 16-month investigation by Mongabay and The Gecko Project, in which we revealed how Hambit had used land deals to bankroll a corrupt election campaign in the district of Gunung Mas.

Tuesday of the Tenth Week in Ordinary Time
Lectionary: 360

Reading 1 1 KGS 17:7-16

The brook near where Elijah was hiding ran dry,
because no rain had fallen in the land.
So the LORD said to Elijah:
Move on to Zarephath of Sidon and stay there.
I have designated a widow there to provide for you.
He left and went to Zarephath.
As he arrived at the entrance of the city,
a widow was gathering sticks there; he called out to her,
Please bring me a small cupful of water to drink.
She left to get it, and he called out after her,
Please bring along a bit of bread.
She answered, As the LORD, your God, lives,
I have nothing baked;
there is only a handful of flour in my jar
and a little oil in my jug.
Just now I was collecting a couple of sticks,
to go in and prepare something for myself and my son;
when we have eaten it, we shall die.
Elijah said to her, Do not be afraid.
Go and do as you propose.
But first make me a little cake and bring it to me.
Then you can prepare something for yourself and your son.
For the LORD, the God of Israel, says,
The jar of flour shall not go empty,
nor the jug of oil run dry,
until the day when the LORD sends rain upon the earth.'
She left and did as Elijah had said.
She was able to eat for a year, and Elijah and her son as well;
the jar of flour did not go empty,
nor the jug of oil run dry,
as the LORD had foretold through Elijah.

US law enforcement officials travel regularly to Israel to receive training "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the death toll near the border in Gaza continues to grow, and Israeli military snipers shoot and kill innocent women and children, journalists, and nurses rendering aid to wounded victims, Americans should consider the influence Israeli forces are having on police in the United States, given the extensive training select law enforcement officials receive during seminars in Israel that have been ongoing for years. It may sound like a "conspiracy theory," but the close relationship between the U.S. and Israel-which costs American taxpayers nearly $4 billion a year-has extended to the training of law enforcement, and dozens of American officials are sent to Israel to train with Israeli law enforcement each year. In September 2017, the Jerusalem Post reported that 52 American police officers from 12 states made a special trip to Israel "to train in counterterrorism techniques and attend an annual 9/11 memorial service outside Jerusalem" with the Police Unity Tour, which was established in 1997. During the trip, the delegation of officers was based at the Beit Shemesh police academy where they participated in counterterrorism drills and received training from Israeli military and police before they concluded on Sept. 11 with a 9/11 memorial service.

Since then, his tone against the deep state coup has moderated considerably for those who have been watching closely, but it was not until his appearance on Martha MacCallums show on Tuesday, May 29th that the new Trey Gowdy was revealed in its full glory.

The Rejuvenation Roadmap "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

One of the most commonly asked questions we receive is How is progress going in aging research? It is something we are asked so often that we decided to provide the community with a resource that will help them to keep track of progress directly.

To that end, today we have launched our new curated database, The Rejuvenation Roadmap, which will be tracking the progress of the many therapies and projects in the rejuvenation biotechnology field. This database aims to give a quick visual summary of the status of each drug or therapy along with some additional information for people interested in learning more about them.

We believe that an informed community is an effective one, and this was one of our motivations for developing this new database. There are many resources for scientists, such as the superb databases of the Human Ageing Genomic Resources maintained by Dr. Joo Pedro de Magalhes, which are excellent for researchers. However, we noticed that there was no database that tracked the efforts of the many researchers and projects in the field, and while some people do maintain lists, they are often not public facing, easy to access, or user-friendly.

DONALD TRUMP FLASHBACK VIDEO=> Businessman Trump Prepared for North Korea Summit in 1999 "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Trump was correct when he recently said that he has been preparing for the North Korea summit his entire life. In fact, there is video evidence to prove it.

On Friday the President said

President Donald Trump expressed confidence Friday that he is fully prepared for his planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but with only days to go until the historic event, Democrats and experts still have reservations about his negotiating strategy.

I always believe in preparation, but Ive been preparing all my life, Trump told reporters outside the White House on Friday morning before leaving for the G7 summit in Canada. He is scheduled to leave there on Saturday morning to travel to Singapore, where he is set to meet with Kim Tuesday to discuss shutting down the reclusive regimes nuclear weapons program.

The President is right and there is video evidence to prove it. Not only has he been negotiating mega deals for a living on some of the priciest and most beautiful real estate properties on earth, he also used these skills to win the US election for President beating 17 Republican hopefuls and the crooked Clinton machine. The President also had a best seller (The Art of the Deal) and held one of the nations number one TV show for years (remember Youre Fired!).

But there is also proof that the President has been thinking about how to deal with North Korea for years.

President Trump was on Meet the Press nearly 20 years ago where he provided his ideas about North Korea.

Donald Trump: The biggest problem this world has is nuclear proliferation.  And we have this country out there, North Korea, that is sort of wacko.  Which is not a bunch of dummies and they are going out and they are developing nuclear weapons And wouldnt it be good to sit down and really negotiate something? And if that negotiation doesnt work youre better to solve the problem now than solve it later.

Has anyone ever been inspired by a school administrator? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Im asking sincerely. Im sure it happens. I just dont know of any cases. I can think back and make a long list of teachers who got me excited about diverse topics, but administration is a thankless job, and there isnt as much opportunity to interact with students in a positive way.

And then, of course, way too many administrators are craven bullies. Like the nameless officials who cut Lulabel Seitzs commencement speech at the instant she criticized the school. Its at about the 4 minute mark in this video, which also includes Seitz giving the uncensored version.

Heres what was cut:

The class of 2018 has demonstrated time and time again that we may be a new generation, but we are not too young to speak up, to dream and to create change, which is why, even when some people on this campus, those same people Seitz said before the mic went off. Her speech, then barely audible, continued, in which some people defend perpetrators of sexual assault and silence their victims.

People in the audience began yell, Let her speak! School officials did not turn her microphone back on.

Seitz has accused another student of sexual assault, and the school administration closed ranks to silence her. But we can attach a name to at least one of them!

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the schools principal, David Stirrat, stands by the decision, saying, We were trying to make sure our graduation ceremony was appropriate and beautiful.

How sweet. Are you also as concerned about making sure the sexual assaults on your students are appropriate and beautiful?

David Stirrat, you are why I do not have fond memories of any high school administrators, who were all button-down conservative a-holes who were more interested in providing cover for business and religious leaders in the community, and not at all about helping students.

Top Democrat Who Rigged Dem Primary Calls President Trump a Vile Wack Job "IndyWatch Feed"

Top Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz rigged the Democratic Primary against Bernie Sanders. She was a staunch Hillary supporter. It was her turn.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz stepped down as DNC Chairwoman after Wikileaks revealed her actions to rig the primary.

Wasserman Schultz is also concerned that the House investigation of her very close IT professional Imran Awan will come back to bite her.

Imran Awan worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz for thirteen years since she came into office in 2004 as a Florida representative.

Imran and his two Pakistani brothers managed the IT affairs for several Democratic government officials.  They were relieved of their duties in February 2017 on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.

Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives in February 2017.

Imran Awan and his wife Alvi reportedly struck a plea deal this week.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is refusing to bring up charges against Wasserman Shultzs IT expert Imran Awan.

The Awan brothers server with much of the key evidence to the case went missing this past year.

Wasserman Schultz hopes Democrats will take Congress in November so they can bury the Awan scandal.

This week Wasserman Schultz called President Trump a vile wack job.

The Shark Tank reported:

Wasserman Schultz once took issue with then Republican Congressman Allen West for calling her vile and despicable on the House floor.

Now DWS is calling President Trump the very same offense word West called her several years back.

BBC World Service history show recycles one inaccuracy and adds more "IndyWatch Feed War"

As readers may recall, on June 5th listeners to the BBC World Service radio history programme Witness heard that the Lebanese civil war began in June 1982 and that Israel started it.

The day after that programme was aired BBC Watch submitted a complaint to the BBC on that issue but to date has received neither acknowledgement nor a response to the request to correct that obvious inaccuracy.

Moreover, on June 11th that same report by Simon Watts was recycled in its entirety (from 10:09 here) in another BBC World Service radio history programme The History Hour where the item was described as being about an assassination attempt that sparked Lebanons war.

Once again, after Watts asked had the son of the form...


Crack Open ACRN A Device Hypervisor Designed for IoT "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

As the Internet of Things has grown in scale, IoT developers are increasingly expected to support a range of hardware resources, operating systems, and software tools/applications. This is a challenge given many connected devices are size-constrained. Virtualization can help meet these broad needs, but existing options dont offer the right mix of size, flexibility, and functionality for IoT development.


Cops in soap drama "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The shop front campaign by Lush cosmetics has opened up a major public debate about the role of spycops and the history of political policing over the last fifty years.
While Lush have focused their campaign on spycops and worked closely with the women whose lives were ruined by the deception of the undercover officers in the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), there is a bigger picture which links to modern day protests, such as those communities opposing fracking. Lush have run many successful social justice and animal welfare campaigns over the years.
I myself was put on the Met Police's Domestic Extremist database when an elected politician sitting on the Met's own Police authority
Indeed, it is their connection with campaigners who have exposed the abuse of animals which gives them a link to the spycop saga. The SDS targeted such campaigners in the 1980s and 1990s. I myself was put on the Met Police's Domestic Extremist database when an elected politician sitting on the Met's own Police authority. I was overseeing the Met's performance while they were spying on me for over a decade. All at the taxpayer's expense.
With a lot of the groups that the police targeted, their fringe concerns have become a mainstream minimum standard. Public opinion in Britain has shifted a lot as a result of the work those campaigners did and subsequent regulations have improved the welfare of animals. The campaigning and the improvements are undoubtedly connected, so why were spycops taking sides?
Other major organizations targeted by campaigners who were spied upon include McDonalds, who have recently spent millions making all kinds of ethical improvements in order to try to redeem their damaged reputation.
One of the famous McLibel campaigners was Helen Steel, who is also one of the women who uncovered the whole spycop deception. Ind...
