Leserbrief zu China und "ein Kind pro Familie":
ich mchte dazu zu Bedenken geben, dass sich in China die Bauwirtschaft und das Bildungswesen auf 1 Kind/Familie eingerichtet hat. Die Leute wurden von der Regierung in Grostdte geholt (zum Teil nicht freiwillig) und dort ist fr mehr als ein Kind halt kein Platz.Das wollen wir nicht hoffen!
Hier greift die schne englische Redewendung: "Paiting yourself into a corner.". In China sind das dann immer gleich mindestend 100Mio Pinsel.
China hat Nahrungsmittelsicherheit fr 900 Mio Personen. Obendrein wird China besonders in Gegenden vom Klimawandel betroffen sein, welche weit weg von Meer sind und somit fr Meerwasserentsalzung ausfallen. Damit ergibt sich die Motivation nicht sofort. Ich habe daher die Befrchtung, dass die chinesische Regierung die Befrchtung hat, dass es Krieg geben wird.

End to quarrel over worlds biggest lake boosts Russias hold over region
Russian president Vladimir Putin (left) and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani at the Caspian summit in Aktau, Kazakhstan on Sunday AFP
By Henry Foy in Aktau
Russia has pledged to deepen co-operation with Iran and its Central Asian neighbours through a landmark deal on carving up the Caspian Sea, potentially paving the way for long-stalled energy projects and confirming Russias military supremacy over the worlds biggest lake.
The Caspians littoral states of Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan have quarrelled for more than two decades since the collapse of the Soviet Union over how to divide the strategically-important landlocked sea. On Sunday they signed a deal to manage a resource that holds large hydrocarbon resources and is a bridge between Central Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
This is an exceptional summit with milestone significance for the fate of the Caspian Sea, Russian president Vladimir Putin told his fellow leaders. This gives an opportunity for us to be on a different level of partnership to develop our co-operation in various new directions.
Irans president Hassan Rouhani said he welcomed his four partners support for the country following the US decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action curtailing Tehrans nuclear programme and reimpose sanctions on the country.
It is gratifying that the Caspian countries emphasise multilateralism and oppose unilateral actions that are developing in some countries, said Mr Rouhani. The Caspian countries emphasise the protection of the JCPOA as a valuable international arrangement.
Moscow has long viewed the Caspian within its sphere of influence and has sought to block any attempts to dilute its clout or thwart regional projects such as Turkmenistans proposed undersea gas pipeline that would allow it to compete with Russian gas in Europe.
But Mr Putins administration agreed to Sundays convention as a means to develop warmer ties with Iran, and strengthen co-operation with its Central Asian neighbours amid attempts by China and the US to increase their presence in the region. In exchange Russia gains a ban on any military presence on the Caspian by non-signatories, in effect giving its navy full control over the waves.
Russia has been the driving force between the recent progress . . . but it remains to be seen whether Moscow has actually given anything away, said Camilla Hagelund, pr...
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has cancelled a visit to Iran, his press office said Sunday, as the premier came under strong Iranian criticism over his stand on renewed US sanctions against Tehran.
Abadi will still go ahead with a planned visit to Turkey on Tuesday but has scrapped the Iran leg of the trip because of his busy schedule, his office said.
An Iraqi official had said Saturday that Abadi would visit both neighbouring Turkey and Iran to discuss economic issues.
AFP/File | Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has said Iraq will reluctantly comply with US sanctions against its ally Iran
According to Iraqi political sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, Iran initially agreed to the visit but changed its mind because it was unhappy about Abadis remarks.
The premier said last Tuesday that Iraq which relies on neighbouring Iran as a source of cheap imports would reluctantly comply with US sanctions against Tehran that took effect the same day.
We dont support the sanctions because they are a strategic error, but we will comply with them, said Abadi, whose country is an ally of both Tehran and Washington. In general, sanctions are unjust.
On Sunday, Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khameneis representative in Baghdad lashed out at Abadi as the Tehran visit was called off.
These irresponsible remarks have already been condemned by many people. Its a disloyal attitude towards the honest position of Iran and the blood of the martyrs this country has spilt to defend the land of Iraq against jihadists, said Moujtaba al-Hussein.
We are saddened by this position which shows he has been defeated psychologically in the face of the Americans, he said.
The US sanctions were reimposed after President Donald Trump withdrew from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.
In Tehran, the foreign ministry was more guarded about a possible visit by Abadi.
A ministry spokesman said he had so far not received any official news or information whatsoever about this trip, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.
An Israeli official has said Israel doesnt want to start a war in Gaza, but admitted toppling Hamas was still definitely an option. Israel has denied it agreed to a ceasefire with Hamas following last weeks fighting.
Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz told reporters Sunday that Israel was closer than ever to toppling Hamas in Gaza if there is no other choice.
The remarks by Steinitz, who also sits on Israels security cabinet, come on the back of two days of fierce cross-border violence between Hamas and Israel last week.
Steinitz also told local broadcaster Kan that Israel had not signed a ceasefire with agreement with Hamas following the latest escalations, contradicting reports coming from officials in Gaza.
Toppling Hamas was still definitely an option, the minister said, before adding that Israel was not interested in escalating the conflict into a full-scale war.
Gaza on the brink?
Tensions between the two sides have been mounting since March, when Palestinians in Gaza began staging regular protests near the border with Israel.
However, recent weeks have seen at least three major flare-ups. The most recent, on Thursday, saw Israel launch a series of airstrikes on Gaza after Hamas troops launched s...
Crooks are targeting DLink DSL modem routers in Brazil to redirect users to fake bank websites by changing the DNS settings.
With this trick, cybercriminals steal login credentials for bank accounts, Radware researchers reported.
The attackers change the DNS settings pointing the network devices to DNS servers they control, in this campaign the experts observed crooks using two DNS servers, 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. The two DNS servers resolve the logical address for Banco de Brasil (www.bb.com.br) and Itau Unibanco (hostname www.itau.com.br) to bogus clones.
The research center has been tracking malicious activity targeting DLink DSL modem routers in Brazil since June 8th. Via old exploits dating from 2015, a malicious agent is attempting to modify the DNS server settings in the routers of Brazilian residents, redirecting all their DNS requests through a malicious DNS server. reads the analysis published by Radware.
The malicious DNS server is hijacking requests for the hostname of Banco de Brasil (www.bb.com.br) and redirecting to a fake, cloned website hosted on the same malicious DNS server which has no connection whatsoever to the legitimate Banco de Brasil website.
Hackers are using old exploits dating from 2015 that work on some models of DLink DSL devices, they only have to run for vulnerable routers online and change their DNS settings.
The attack is insidious in the sense that a user is completely unaware of the change. The hijacking works without crafting or changing URLs in the users browser. A user can use any browser and his/her regular shortcuts, the user can type in the URL manually or even use it from mobile devices, such as a smart phone or tablet. reads the alert published by Radware.
The user will still be sent to the malicious website instead of to their requested website and the hijacking effectively works at the gateway level.
Attackers carried out phishing campaigns with crafted URLs and malvertising campaigns attempting to change the DNS configuration from within the users browser. Such kind of attack is not a novelty, hackers are using similar techniques since 2014, in 2016, an exploi...
Cory Doctorow has a good
essay where he critiques the recent alarms sounded by
conservatives (triggered by the banning of Alex Jones and his
Infowars from some social media platforms) that the left is
dominating the digital media world. These conservatives are arguing
that America always used to be a country where people would fight
to the death to defend the right of those with opposing views to
express themselves, and that that ethos is now disappearing.
Doctorow says that this rosy view of the past is rubbish.
America is a country where union organizers would be kidnapped by mobs hired by the towns richest citizens, beaten, covered in molten tar, dipped in feathers, and dumped at the city limits. Its a country where white sheriffs, with the support of wealthy white townsfolk, sicced attack-dogs on peaceful black protesters. Its a country where the Klan operated with impunity, routinely murdering and mutilating black people who voiced even the most timid and innocuous professions of equality. Its a country where registering black people to vote could lead to your secret execution, with the killers going free.
Its a country where business owners used their right to police speech on private spaces to fire workers who were trade unionists, or communists even after laws were passed banning this practice, they kept doing it.
Its a country where unarmed protesters were met with tanks, teargas and militarized police.
And the thing is, thats all terrible. America has never been a nation where people may disagree with what you say, but defend to the death your right to say it. Old chestnuts like, Well, of course you cant shout fire in a crowded theater come from court-cases where people were imprisoned for speaking out against a war.
America is a place where people holding establishment-friendly views that did not threaten the super-rich would fight to the death to defend the free speech of other people who held establishment-friendly views, even if they disagreed about the particulars. It was also a place where those people would find common cause in firing, arresting, beating, and murdering people holding views that threatened the status quo and the power of white supremacy and financial dominance.
The relationship between Cuba and the United States is a relationship of history and politics. It is a relationship which shows the nature of Capitalism and Imperialism. It is a relationship which also shows the nature of the struggle for Socialism and Socialist Revolution. Cuba, the first revolutionary Socialist state in Latin America, has managed to survive as a revolutionary Socialist state despite that relationship a relationship forced upon Cuba by the most powerful Capitalist state in the history of the World the United States. In many ways the relationship between Cuba and the United States defines part of the nineteenth-century, the twentieth-century and the present-day between Revolution and Counter-Revolution. In history and politics the old struggle and old relationship between Cuba and the U.S. defines much of the history and politics surrounding us today.
The history and politics between Cuba and the United States began in the nineteenth-century. The modern relationship between Cuba and the United States is a product of the nineteenth-century, and the twentieth-century; a product of Imperialism, Capitalism, Revolution, Rebellion, Class Struggle, and War. In the nineteenth-century, the United States effectively took Cuba from the Spanish Empire and fought a war with Spain in 1898 over the issue of American power in Cuba. In the twentieth-century, the United States effectively controlled Cuba and Cuban politics before the triumph of the Cuban Revolution of 1959.
The political relationship between Cuba and the United States has been defined by the Cuban Revolution. The modern relationship between Cuba and the United States is also the product of the Cuban Revolution of 1959 the Cuban Revolution led by Fidel Castro, the Cuban Revolution of 1953-1959, the Cuban Revolution of 1959-1962. The Revolution changed the relationship between Cuba and the United States by making Cuba both independent of the power of the United States and in conflict with the United States. The conflict which has persisted between Cuba and the United States, since then, has been a fundamental reality of the Cuban Revolution as an anti-Imperialist Revolution and one determined to see Cuba retain its Independence from foreign domination, specifically that of the United States.
Since 1959, to the present, the United States has s...

It looks like Google is taking support for Linux apps very serious lately by recently enabling its integrated virtualization machine for running Linux apps on Chrome OS to support Chromebooks powered by Intel Braswell CPUs.
Patches have been revised for the Linux kernel to support the initial Hygon Dhyana server CPUs that are the licensed AMD Family 17h Zen technology, basically the EPYC server CPUs for the Chinese market.
Back in June the initial Hygon Dhyana Linux patches were posted and today they were revised for the third time. V3 of the Hygon Dhyana patches are re-based against the latest Linux 4.18 development code and rework some of the vendor checking codes for improved consistency.

A year after fascists with torches marched through the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, anarchists and other anti-racists who traveled there to shut down their rally returned to support locals in observing the anniversary of those events. Defying a massive police mobilization aimed at suppressing all freedom to demonstrate, hundreds marched around downtown for hours. The following hasty report was submitted by some of the out-of-town participants.
When we arrived in Charlottesville, the atmosphere felt different than it had a year ago when we came here to oppose the Unite the Right demonstration. Then, the city felt tense, but it was also full of people who were heading into a fight they believed in. The mood wasnt festive, exactly, but our shared desire to protect and support each another and to stand up to fascists created a lively energy.
This year, as I walked onto the University of Virginia (UVA) campus where the rally was to be held, it seemed that the energy we had shared was nowhere to be found. The police and the state authorities had done everything in their power to dominate the environment and shape the entire weekend of events according to their own agenda.
On Wednesday, the governor and the city manager declared a state of emergency in Virginia as a whole and Charlottesville in particular. They brought over 1000 officers to the city and housed them in student dorms, drawing censure from several student groups. The police set up checkpoints around the city at which to search people for a long list of items they declared forbidden. They created a security perimeter blocking roads and access to parking. They erected metal detectors and banned additional items at the UVA student rally on Saturday night,...
The UK is turning its back on Christians. Many have applied for asylum only to be denied. Judith Bergman stated that when the anti-Christian United Nations presented a list recommending 1,358 Syrians for refugee status and subsequent resettlement in Britain, that only four were Christian. The rest were Muslim. However, the UN was kind compared to the UK government. At the end of the day, the UK would not accept even one Christian, but did accept 1,112 Muslims.
The UK decision to maroon Christians, who would face a dire threat, ignored the fact 10 percent of the population of Syria is Christian. The UKs actions are blatantly biased against Christians.

Cryptocurrencies have undoubtedly proven their credentials as a pioneering and disruptive innovation. In 2017, the world sat up and took notice as Bitcoin ballooned from below US$1,000 to almost US$20,000 with plenty of rises and falls along the way in a crazy 12 months that captured headlines worldwide.
Whether you were gripped by this exciting new asset and are just working out how to trade by brushing up on an options trading tutorial, or are concerned about what this means for the future of the established system of currencies and payments, what happens next matters.
The challenges faced by cryptocurrency
Perhaps inevitably, the rise of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin has led to challenges. Firstly, there are a lot of people with vested interests in the existing system that have been left red-faced by the rise of an asset that is free from regulation by central banks.
On top of that, the strengths of cryptocurrencies have been exploited by people engaged in criminal activity. People engaged in the sale of illegal goods have been attracted by the privacy and anonymity offered, while scammers have jumped on the opportunity to create or worsen volatility to make quick money.
A combination of all of these factors has led to regulators in places such as South Korea to introduce regulation on the way cryptocurrencies are bought and used.
If nations and regions impose rules and regulations on the likes of Bitcoin, will this spell trouble for the long-term future of cryptocurrencies? Not necessarily. The blockchain technology involved in digital payment formats is widely seen as having great potential to help speed up the transfer of money and help payments to be safe and secure.
One way of harnessing the essence of cryptocurrencies while still maintaining a sense of control is for states, cities or regions to establish their own. New rivals to Bitcoin are springing up all the time but recently these have taken on a geographic feel.
Over in South Korea, for example, Seoul City has announced plans to unveil S-Coin, a cryptocurrency that could be used in welfare programmes around the city.
Back at the end of last year, Dubais government launched the blockchain-based emCash currency. Using its emWallet payment system people can use this to buy everything from their daily coffee and childrens school fee to utility charges and money transfers using near-field communication.

The past few weeks have been pretty bad for fans of the retro gaming scene. Following action by Nintendo, two ROM platforms shut down in response to a lawsuit and another, EmuParadise, voluntarily stopped providing game downloads.
While these events have probably resulted in congratulations being shared among colleagues back in Kyoto, few gamers will join in the celebrations. Quite simply, most dont understand why the company chooses to be so aggressively protective.
For the purposes of this discussion, lets work on the assumption that distributing and obtaining ROMs in order to play retro games is the same as any other kind of piracy. It breaches the rights of gaming companies and can result in a copyright lawsuit, like the one leveled at LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co.
Now lets view this from the position of the average retro gamer. Obtaining ROMs, in order to play retro games, does no harm. The titles themselves are often decades old, run on obsolete hardware, and have already covered their costs a thousand times over.
With all that in mind and considering many gamers are currently buying new games, theyll be wondering what the hell the problem is and why gaming companies are being such assholes?
It is this disconnect, between the positions of gaming companies and fans of their historical creations, that causes so much confusion. Surely, if gaming companies like Nintendo or former arcade giants like Taito or Namco want to exploit their catalogs, they would already be doing so with comprehensive game packs and devices?
Of course, over the years this has happened to a limited extent, with games companies digging into back catalogs to create products like the NES Classic and Atari Flashback, but these barely scratch the surface of what is already available unofficially.
It cannot be denied that Nintendo has produced some of the greatest games of all time, with titles such as Super Mario 64 guaranteed a spot in history for being both ground-breaking and absolutely magical. But despite its incredible ability to manipulate players emotions in ways other developers never have, Nintendo seems to underestimate the emotions experienced by retro gamers every time they play.
This week, when EmuParadise ceased offering downloads, site founde...

A team of six specially trained crows will be tasked with cleaning up rubbish from the grounds of a French theme park, reports the AFP.
The goal is not just to clear up, because the visitors are generally careful to keep things clean but also to show that nature itself can teach us to take care of the environment, Nicolas de Villiers of the Puy du Fou park, in the western Vendee region, told AFP.
Rooks, a member of the crow family of birds that also includes the carrion crow, jackdaw and raven, are considered to be particularly intelligent and in the right circumstances like to communicate with humans and establish a relationship through play, Villiers said.

A possible 2020 Democratic candidate for president suggested Sunday that Congress should look at impeaching President Trump over his dealings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
I think thats something we ought to look at, former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said during an interview with CNNs State of the Union. Theyre undermining our country. He is our enemy, we should fight him, and quit bear-hugging like Trump likes to do.
McAuliffe added there has be a reason for Trumps sycophantic approach to Putin, particularly in the face of intelligence community conclusion that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 presidential election.
McAuliffes comments follow his condemnation of Trumps controversial bilateral meeting with Putin in Helsinki in July, saying the president violated his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution by elevating the Russian leaders status. Trump received bipartisan scorn for appearing to accept Putins denial that Moscow interfered in the U.S. electoral process, saying at a joint press conference his assertions were extremely strong and powerful.
McAuliffe also chastised fellow Democrats on Sunday for posturing for potential 2020 White House bids.
Our future is on the line this year, he said, referring to the 2018 midterm election cycle that could result in a Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. 2020 will come soon enough.

commence in Gaza
GAZA CITY (Maan) 9 Aug The people of Gaza commenced the funeral processions of the three Palestinians who were killed during Israeli airstrikes on Thursday afternoon. Palestinians carried the body of killed pregnant mother Enas Mohammad Abu Khammash along with her 18-month-old toddler in one coffin, which was wrapped with the Palestinian flag.
Huge incendiary kite from Gaza lands
on kibbutz power lines
Times of Israel 11 Aug A large incendiary kite launched from Gaza landed on power lines near Kibbutz Sufa, sparking a quick operation by employees from the Israeli Electric Corporation to remove the device before a fire was started. The 4-meter (about 13-foot) kite, which landed on Friday, caused a power outage at the kibbutz and in the surrounding area. It was removed from the high-voltage wires by electric company workers using a crane. In another community near the Gaza Strip, police sappers neutralized an incendiary balloon flown over from the Hamas-run Palestinian enclave that landed next to a dining room in an Israeli community in the Eshkol Region. In response, the Israeli military on Saturday afternoon said it targeted a cell responsible for launching incendiary balloons in the northern Gaza Strip. Reports in Palestinian media said two people were injured in the Israeli strikes in El-Bureij. There were also Palestinian reports of a second IDF strike elsewhere in the Gaza Strip. Earlier, another incendiary device sparked a fire in the Nir Am nature reserve. The blaze was largely under control by Saturday afternoon, according to the Parks Authority. The arson attacks Saturday came on the heels of clashes along the Gaza border on Friday that saw three Palestinians killed, according to the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza The violence that erupted over the weekend came after Hamas and Israel appeared to be honoring an informal cease-fire that ended two days of intense violence amid efforts by neighboring Egypt to negotiate between the two sides.

While Elon Musk owns 20% of Tesla, more than $60 billion would be needed to buy the business from public shareholders.
Saudi Arabias sovereign wealth fund is in talks that could see it becoming a significant investor in Tesla as part of Elon Musks plan to take the electric car maker private, according to a person with direct knowledge of the funds plans.
The Public Investment Fund, which has built up a stake just shy of 5 percent in Tesla in recent months, is exploring how it can be involved in the potential deal, the person said on condition of anonymity. Discussions began before the controversial Aug. 7 tweet by Musk, who is Teslas co-founder and chief executive officer, saying he was weighing a plan to take the company private.

He had all the proper security credentials. He had been working his shift and was believed to still be in uniform. The baggage handler didn't seem out of place at all until he was taxiing down the runway and taking off in a stolen passenger plane.
Media outlets identified him as Richard Russell, a 27-year-old who sparked a combination of amazement and fear as he flew alone a 76-seat Horizon Air Q400 plane for more than an hour before it crashed on a wooded area on Ketron Island south of Seattle.
He did a barrel roll. A daring swoop. Officials said they didn't believe he even had a pilot's license. "Incredible," Horizon Air President and Chief Executive Gary Beck said Saturday.
But investigators are still trying to understand why he decided to take the plane for a what appeared to be joy ride Friday evening from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
The act also reignited discussions about airport and aviation security, with Alaska Airlines Chairman and CEO Brad Tilden repeating several times Saturday that passenger and employee safety was and is the company's primary concern.

#mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) Inhibiting TORC1 has been shown to increase lifespan.
Today, we are pleased to announce that the results are in from a human trial that targets the aging immune system and that an immune system-boosting drug appears to be effective.
Targeting TORC1 to boost the immune system
As we age, the immune system becomes increasingly poor and unable to detect and fight infections. This can make the elderly vulnerable to respiratory tract infections (RTIs), thus impacting their health and quality of life and leaving them at risk of dying from such infections. There are currently no treatments for RTIs that target the aging immune system directly.
Mere weeks after tariffs were put into place raising the cost of many Chinese-sourced electronics components by 25%, a second round of tariffs is scheduled to begin that will deal yet another blow to hackers. And this time it hits right at the heart of our community: 3D-printing.
A quick scan down the final tariff list posted by the Office of the US Trade Representative doesnt reveal an obvious cause for concern. In among the hundreds of specific items listed one will not spot Filaments for additive manufacturing or anything else that suggests that 3D-printing supplies are being targeted. But hidden in the second list of tariff items, wedged into what looks like a polymer chemists shopping list, are a few entries for Monofilaments with cross-section dimension over 1 mm. Uh-oh!
That would seem to specifically target the typical 1.75-mm filament that most FDM printers like to eat; however, the line items specifically list the proscribed items as being polymers of ethylene, acrylic, and vinyl chloride. Neither PLA nor ABS, the most popular filaments, fits into any of those categories. The next line item, though, appears to be the gotcha: Monofilament nesoi [Not Elsewhere Specified or Indicated], of plastics, excluding ethylene, vinyl chloride and acrylic polymers. This would seem to include plastic filaments of any dimension and made of any polymer other than those listed above, which represents a broad category of products that could include anything from fishing line to spools of weed-whacker line. And, apparently, PLA and ABS printer filament.
A week ago, the federal government halted work on a massive pipeline project that runs from Northern West Virginia through Southern Virginia. The government said it had no choice but to order work on the multibillion-dollar Mountain Valley Pipeline stopped after a federal appeals court ruled that two federal agencies had neglected to follow important environmental protections when they approved the project. The court had found that the U.S. Forest Service had suddenly dropped without any explanation its longstanding concerns that soil erosion from the pipeline would harm rivers, streams and aquatic life.

As has been documented on these pages on numerous occasions in the past, the BBC usually avoids informing its audience of the circumstances under which Judea and Samaria and parts of Jerusalem were occupied and subsequently illegally annexed by what was at the time still called Trans-Jordan.
Time and time again BBC audiences are told of occupied Palestinian territories without any mention of the inclusion of those areas in the territory assigned by the League of Nations to the creation of a Jewish homeland. Also lacking is explanation of the belligerent British-backed invasion and subsequent ethnic cleansing of Jews from the areas attacked by Jordan in 1948. Instead, the BBCs portrayal of history almost inevitably begins in 1967 when, audiences are told, Israel occupied the area which is euphemistically described as having previously been under the control of Jordan.
Even the BBCs country profile of Jordan erases its 1948 belligerent invasion of land beyond its western border from audience view.
Saada Province, Yemen - The late morning sun conspired with a cloudless blue sky to picturesquely frame the city of Dhahian in southern Saada province. Suddenly the serenity was broken by the loud piercing shriek of fighter jets over the quiet village, followed by a deafening explosion. When the thick black smoke finally began to dissipate, more than 20 mothers discovered a school bus carrying their children had been transformed into a hellish scene: choking dust, smoldering shops, and the charred corpses of children buried under the mangled school bus.

Denis Aabo Srensen lost his left hand nine years ago, while handling fireworks. Since then, he has used prosthetic hands, but never one like this. Last year, a team of European engineers created for him a prosthetic hand that connects directly to the remaining nerves in his upper arm. That means the hand is able to send sensations of touch back through his arm and into his brain. Plus, when Srensen wanted to grab something, he could move the hand by simply thinking about it.
By combining quantum mechanical quirks of light with a technique called photonic force microscopy, scientists can now probe detailed structures inside living cells like never before. This ability could bring into focus previously invisible processes and help biologists better understand how cells work.
Photonic force microscopy is similar to atomic force microscopy, where a fine-tipped needle is used to scan the surface of something extremely small such as DNA. Rather than a needle, researchers used extremely tiny fat granules about 300 nanometers in diameter to map out the flow of cytoplasm inside yeast cells with high precision.
To see where these miniscule fat particles were, they shined a laser on them. Here, the researchers had to rely on whats known as squeezed light. Photons of light are inherently noisy and because of this, a laser beams light particles wont all hit a detector at the same time. There is a slight randomness to their arrival that makes for a fuzzy picture. But squeezed light uses quantum mechanical tricks to reduce this noise and clear up the fuzziness.

The emotional impact of the Sandy Hook exercise was rooted in the reported death of children, which instilled fear into the hearts of American parents and made an indelible impression. Images of the most photogenic of the 20 who are supposed to have died, Noah Pozner, appeared world-wide. Millions of photos like this from The Guardian (2 May 2017) have been seen by a vast number of literate citizens. But it was all a monstrous fraud. We have proven that the kids were fictions made up out of photos of older kids when they were younger. Some parents even appear to have used photos of themselves.
By far the most active among the Sandy Hook parents has been the man who calls himself, Leonard (Lenny) Pozner. He has been extremely aggressive in going after web sites by Sandy Hook skeptics, in demanding take-downs of images of him and Noah again and again and again, including of Dr. Eowyn, Dr. Tracy, Dr. Fetzer, Tony Mead and innumerable others. That was very strange activity for someone whose image has been published literally millions of times around the world. So whats going on?

From the Health Ranger:
Rachael Rays dog food brand, Nutrish, is now facing a $5 million lawsuit filed by Markeith Parks, who claims that her dog food is contaminated with glyphosate herbicide.
According to E!News:
Parks states in the documents that while Rachael Ray Nutrish aggressively advertises and promotes the products as natural, these claims are false, deceptive, and misleading.
Instead, the products contain the unnatural chemical glyphosate, a potent biocide and endocrine disruptor, with detrimental health effects that are still becoming known, the documents claim.
According to the lawsuit, Tests conducted by an independent laboratory revealed that glyphosate is present in the Products. But as I explain in my food science video below, its almost certain that glyphosate contamination could be found in nearly all pet food products and brands.
Glyphosate has become so ubiquitous that nearly every food item in the grocery store pet food, human food or otherwise can test positive for glyphosate when a sensitive enough instrument is used. Thats the problem with this deadly molecule: It gets into everything, contaminating water, soils, foods and even the air.
According to media reports, the plaintiff in this lawsuit is seeking to block all sales of the Nutrish dog food brand. But to what end? Every alternative would also contain glyphosate, unless it were certified organic. This idea that Rachael Rays dog food brand is the only dog food containing glyphosate is flatly ludicrous.
As I explain in my video below, the basis of this lawsuit seems flimsy, given that Rachael Rays dog food brand isnt labeled organic or claiming to contain zero pesticides / herbicides. Also, as I explain, nobody is reporting the actual concentration of glyphosate supposedly found in these pet food products. Thats a big red flag. Is it one molecule of glyphosate? Is it 50 parts per trillion? If its anything under 1 ppb, Im not worried about it. Theres probably at least 100 parts per trillion of glyphosate in everythingthese days, because it literally falls right out of the air. (Yes, theres glyphosate in the atmosphere now. Its impossible to grow food that isnt contaminated with it at some level)

A coronal mass ejection occurs when a star spews a glob of plasma and charged particles from its corona into surrounding space. They quite often occur with our sun following a solar flare. In this new effort, the researchers found evidence of a CME from a large star (approximately three times the mass of the sun) called HR 9024it is approximately 450 light-years from Earth.

I did not know the minimum wage for jobs where tipping is common is $2.13. That is not a living wage heck, the standard minimum wage is not a living wage. So why do we allow this? Heres a video explainer.
That explains a lot, like why European countries tend not to have a tradition of tipping, while this country with its legacy of slavery does.
The appropriate response is not to refuse to tip its to demand changes to the law to require that business owners pay their employees a fair salary. Dont deprive already abused workers now.

The Chinese Navy has threatened a Philippine military aircraft in its latest known flight over Chinas man-made islands in the South China Sea, telling it to leave or else it will face consequences.
A US Navy plane overheard Chinas radio message to the Philippines during a surveillance flight of its P-8A Poseidon aircraft over the Spratly Islands last Friday.
Philippine military aircraft! Im warning you again. Leave immediately or you will bear responsibility for all the consequences! a voice was heard as saying.
Television networks BBC and CNN were given the rare opportunity to join the US surveillance flight and witness Chinas expansion in the Spratly Islands from a view of 16,500 feet.
BBC was able to pick up the radio warning of the Chinese to the Philippine military aircraft supposedly flying nearby. It noted the difference in tone with the ones issued to the US.

Californias Long Valley Caldera is so large that it could release over 140 cubic miles of material into the sky upon eruption, the last of which occurred some 767,000 years ago, a report says.
To give an example of just how much material that is, Mt. St. Helens blew 0.29 cubic miles material into the sky back in 1980.
The Sunday Express reports:
While the Long Valley Caldera is unlikely to blow anytime soon, the report, written by scientists from the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the University of California, and the University of Rhode Island, said: We can conclude the mid-crustal reservoir is still melt-rich.
We estimate the reservoir currently contains enough melt to support another super eruption comparable in size to the caldera-forming eruption at 767 ka.
The report, published by the Geological Society of America, stresses however that there is no need to start panicking, adding: This volume and a relatively high melt fraction in no way ensures that the magma is eruptible.
The team used cutting-edge techniques to inspect the volcano in great detail, enabling them to reach their stunning conclusions.
The Long Valley Caldera is about 11 miles wide, 20 miles long and 3000 feet deep.
An eruption of the supervolcano is not currently expected.

The 2018 film, A Childs Voice, directed by Edgar Michael Bravo and produced by No Restrictions Entertainment provides a rare fictionalized glimpse into the world of child trafficking.
This article wont contain significant spoilers, but this writer will emphasize that the movie does not depict the sexual abuse of children in any way whatsoever, though it does contain disturbing references and events as part of the nature of addressing this topic. The movie covers multifaceted aspects of child trafficking rings in a fictionalized and sometimes supernatural sense, providing a rare take on the matter that by nature differs from non-fiction pieces, such as Amy Bergs expose of Hollywood pedophilia, An Open Secret.

This week, Vietnam and the Philippines held the third iteration of their deputy defense ministerial dialogue. Though the interaction was just one among several between the two Southeast Asian states, it nonetheless served to highlight the ongoing efforts by Hanoi and Manila to continue to explore areas for security collaboration in spite of the challenges in this aspect of the relationship.
As I have noted before in these pages, until the inauguration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, Vietnam and the Philippines had been significantly strengthening their defense ties as part of their wider relationship for several reasons. The two sides had come up with mechanisms from hotlines to working groups to facilitate confidence-building, and the relationship was elevated to a strategic partnership in 2015 under Dutertes predecessor, Benigno Aquino III.
While there is no doubt much continuity in the relationship, Dutertes emergence had nonetheless created complications for bilateral ties, including on the issue of the South China Sea where his softening stance in favor of boosting relations with Beijing had undercut the extent of convergence between Hanoi and Manila as the two forward-leaning claimants against growing Chinese assertiveness (See: Beware the Illusion of China-Philippines South China Sea Breakthroughs).

TUMBY BAY Australias torpedo-headed Minister for Xenophobia, Mutton Dutton, doesnt seem to be able to tell the difference between a migrant and an asylum seeker.
He doesnt understand that some people have the time and relative security to apply to migrate to Australia while others who are faced with an immediate threat to their health and well-being need to escape their countries quickly and in any way they can, including in leaky boats.
The walloper in Dutton believes that seeking asylum is tantamount to a criminal act and, as such, deserves punishment.
It is a familiar meme, particularly among conservative politicians who believe that people under stress, such as welfare recipients, are to blame for their circumstances and need to be dealt with harshly for their own good.
Behrouz Boochani, a Kurdish journalist from Iran who has been imprisoned on Manus Island for the last five years, makes the point in an article in The Saturday Paper that there is a danger that the cruelty overseen by Dutton on Manus and Nauru is in the process of replicating itself throughout Australian society.
It is a good point but I suspect that it might be the other way round; that the cruelty already inherent in our welfare systems was simply applied by our government to asylum seekers on Manus and Nauru.
Boochani has recently published a book about his experiences on Manus called No Friend But the Mountains: Writing From Manus Prison and I am looking forward to reading it.
That he has managed to write the book in secret using nothing but his mobile telephone is a remarkable achievement.
That he has survived punitive imprisonment on Manus for five years and retained his sanity is also remarkable.
He is not alone of course. All of the asylum seekers who have survived on Manus and Nauru must be remarkably tough and resilient people.

A terror attack in Huta, Yemen, a bastion of al-Qaeda jihadists (Photo: SALEH AL-OBEIDI/AFP/Getty Images)
Al-Qaeda turned 30 over the weekend.
Although the notorious terror group has become a household name, many may think its shelf life passed and its merely hanging around our domiciles like a dusty old product surpassed in modernity and efficiency (read: ISIS).
Not so fast, warned the State Department on August 11 as it doubled the bounty on two of al-Qaedas top dogs to $10 million. The pair, Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah (aka Mohammed al-Masri and Abu Muhammad a-Zayat) and Sayf al-Adl, both had a hand in the deadly bombings of the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya 20 years ago this month. (That anniversary passed as well without mention.)
Yet, not only is al-Qaeda still on the CIAs radar, our intelligence services can confirm it never disappeared. So, why dont we hear about it? More importantly, is the threat posed by the organization still alive and well in the U.S. and against American interests abroad, not to mention worldwide? And if so, why has the group been so hard to neutralize?
While Parkland activist David Hogg and supporters were protesting in front of the empty NRA headquarters on a Saturday afternoon, the rest of the country was reading about yet another failure in the system that allowed the Parkland school shooter to go free.
That report was quickly followed by the conclusions reached by the commission investigating the Valentines Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School; in short, the gunman had to stop to reload several times, giving anyone with a weapon ample opportunity to have stopped him. The armed deputy in charge of securing the school waited outside while shots rang out, however.

Netanyahu says Palestinian flags seen at Tel Aviv rally demonstrates need to enshrine countrys Jewish nature in law
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday said the protesters at a mass rally against the nation-state law who were waving Palestinian flags were seeking to destroy Israel and proved the contentious legislation was necessary.
We have [here] conclusive evidence of the defiance against Israel and the necessity of the nation-state law, he said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting, referring to the Arab-led demonstration in Tel Avivs Rabin Square on Saturday.
Many of the protesters want to abolish the Law of Return, the anthem and the flag, and turn Israel into a Palestinian state, he said. Its clearer now more than ever that the nation-state law is needed to ensure the future of Israel as a Jewish state.
The prime minister made similar remarks Saturday night on Twitter after images and videos of the flag-waving protesters were shared on social media.
We will continue waving the Israeli flag and singing [the national anthem] Hatikva with great pride, he posted.

[Fmilburn] was having fun with his grandkids, playing around with a small Radio Shack solar panel, some supercapacitors and a Zener diode when the kids eventually moved on to blowing bubbles with their grandmother. To regain their interest he got an inexpensive battery powered, soap Bubble Blaster and converted it to run on the solar panel and supercapacitors instead.
His write-up is a pretty fun read, walking through his process, including an oscilloscope measurement showing how the capacitors voltage drops from 5.26 V to 3.5 V when the trigger is pressed, and interestingly, slowly recovers until its released a second later, when it then rises back to 4.5 V. Hes even included how he worked out of the panels maximum power point (MPP), which is what he was doing when the kids were first lured away to blow soap bubbles. But were sure Hackaday readers arent as easily distracted.
The resulting Solar Powered Bubble Blaster works quite well. At a starting voltage of 5.23 V, it runs for 15 seconds and then takes only a minute to recharge. Charged batteries would have had a longer runtime but take longer to recharge, an important point when trying to keep kids interested. See it in action in the video below.

Access to the Internet is considered a basic need in many modern countries. Ideally, this should come without any content restrictions.
With all the fuss about net neutrality in recent years, most Internet providers have stayed clear from any interference.
In Belarus, however, local ISP Velcom is crossing a sensitive line.
The company informed its customers that its summer promotion, which provided subscribers on some plans with unlimited Internet access, is being limited.
Those who exceeded their regular cap have been able to access the Internet without any restrictions until now, but starting tomorrow BitTorrent traffic will no longer be allowed.
From 13.08.2018, the possibility of data transfers using the bittorrent protocol is excluded for subscribers of the Comfort and Comfort + plans, when using the Unlimited Internet package, the company writes in its terms of service.
The restriction was publicly announced by the ISP but no reason for this change was provided. The company does stress, however, that the BitTorrent blockade only applies when the regular limits of the plan are exceeded.
The special unlimited promotion only runs this summer and will end in September, so its effectively a temporary measure.
Given the fact that the ISP changed the rules during the promotion suggests that many torrenters were using it to their advantage. Perhaps to a degree that it was causing more overhead than the ISP hoped for.
Velcom does not provide any details on how BitTorrent traffic will be detected. However, its probably safe to assume that tech-savvy subscribers can still use a VPN or other tools to remain undetected, to get truly unlimited Internet access.

LAE - Recently there was a difference of opinion over poems related to gender violence in Papua New Guinea and in my view the squabbling overshadowed more important issues which could have been discussed openly.

There is no further argument offered here. Instead this review explores the process of writing in which We are dying one by one was developed. This article will elaborate on the sound of sense which readers picked up on and was within the poets skill to engender in their minds.
The mechanics stanza style
The poem We are dying one by one uses a three line stanza form based on the terza rima style but not in the same consistent meter. The unusual meter however was employed consistently in each stanza throughout the poem to create a familiar blend between the stanzas.
The sing-along rhythm contrasts candidly with the seriousness and complexity of the agenda about to be addressed. The agenda itself, violence against women and specifically rape, and the attitudes and behaviours with which it is associated are gradually exposed, only hinted at until the sixth stanza (there are nine such triplets), and this is also representative of the socially accepted and undertone nature of domestic violence.
The sing-along sound created in the first line is reminiscent of nursery rhymes. When reading the poem the tone of the first line is preset by the emotion raised in the following two lines of each stanza but this can only be realised by a second reading or by scanning forward. And by then the reader is unconsciously hooked by the rhythm and rhyme.
The second line of each stanza is an irregular meter of either eight or nine syllable length but the third...

PORT MORESBY - Later this year, Papua New Guinea will host the APEC leaders summit, a platform which government officials are will showcase PNG.
In recent times we have seen a flurry of events staged including sporting carnivals, multilateral summits and regional cultural festivals and are now accustomed to the argument that such occasions are necessary to display our country to the world.
But really how effective are they as methods of conducting diplomacy? What criteria are used to assess their outcomes? For instance, do they make more positive the attitudes and behaviour of foreigners towards PNG?
PNG bankrolls the staging of these events in the hope of demonstrating its offerings to the world. But another important avenue are public diplomacy initiatives.
Well targeted public diplomacy can be a cost-effective alternative to expensive public occasions. And it seems that the practice of public diplomacy is not very well understood by Papua New Guinean officials.
PNG currently does not have any coherent guide itself to what its global audience might be. In the absence of this kind of information, it stages events that are hard to measure against clearly stated objectives and hard to quantify in terms of their true effectiveness.
This years APEC summit could be used to initiate a comprehensive review of how PNG conducts its diplomacy in general and, more specifically, how it established its public diplomacy priorities.
The aim of public diplomacy is to positively communicate a countrys image to a foreign audience using a variety of communication tools. It is intended to build relationships: understand the needs of other countries, cultures and peoples; communicate our own points of view; correct misperceptions; and look for areas where we can find common cause.
It is concerned with a nations influence on the international stage and its image in the mind of international stakeholders.
Former Australian foreign minister Gareth Evans once said, the images which others carry of us influe...

Sometimes when witnessing an argument, its not easy to figure out which side to support. Take the recent spat between Canada and Saudi Arabia. On the one hand, you have Canada asking Saudi Arabia for the release of peaceful human rights activists. On the other hand, you have Saudi Arabia, one of the worlds most repressive regimes, completely melt down in response.
Thats a tough one.
To make things easier, an official Saudi government account then tweeted out an image of a jet heading toward a tall building in Toronto as though the world needed a reminder that most of the 9/11 attackers hailed from Saudi Arabia and that the operation was funded by Saudi money.
Now deleted, here a screenshot of the threatening Saudi "infographic" featuring an airliner headed for the Toronto skyline. pic.twitter.com/LrkCLxxjFk

In the kingdoms defense, it later deleted the tweet and apologized for it because Saudi rulers dont have a problem with oppressing most of the countrys population but theyd rather not draw attention to their support for international terrorism.
While the tweet was deleted, the other over-the-top responses are still in place. Saudi Arabia kicked out Canadas ambassador and recalled its own, canceled flights to Canada from its state airline, froze new trade and investment transactions between the countries and forced government-backed Saudis studying at Canadian universities to withdraw.
All of that simply because of this:
Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and womens rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge th......

This 2 August 2014 video from Germany shows a Chorthippus dorsatus grasshopper calling.
Translated from Nature Today in the Netherlands:
10 AUGUST 2018 On 1 August, a male Chorthippus dorsatus grasshopper was observed in nature reserve Lonnekerberg. The last observation of this very rare grasshopper [in the Netherlands] dates from 26 years ago at Denekamp. Further research will have to show whether there is a population, or whether it concerns a vagrant animal from one of the German populations.
Grand investment plans for unproductive regions have caused empires to founder before.
According to one influential view, its ultimately a question of investment. Great powers are the nations that best harness their economic potential to build up military strength. When they become over-extended, the splurge of spending to sustain a strategic edge leaves more productive parts of the economy starved of capital, leading to inevitable decline.
That should be a worrying prospect for China, a would-be great power whose current phase of growth is associated with an increasingly aggressive military posture and a tsunami of capital spending in its strategic neighborhood.

The amount of electronic data we generate every year is quickly outstripping the capacity of the latest storage systems. The U.S. intelligence community wants a new storage material that can accomodate all that data. In an article on Live Science, they are looking into a rather concerning source that is known to store dense amounts of data: Human DNA.
In a recent announcement, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) called on interested researchers to participate in its Molecular Information Storage program. The agency expressed its interest in a storage system that uses sequence-controlled polymers to store huge amounts of data. These bio-inspired polymers will be based off human DNA.
Should they accept the offer, research teams would undertake two jobs. The first task is to create a tabletop device that can write data on polymers for long-term storage. The second objective is to build another device that can read the information stored on the first device. Participating teams must also come up with an operating system (OS) that can organize, access, and find data within the network.
The Molecular Information Storage program will run for four years. By the time it ends, the final polymer-based system must be able to write one terabyte of data per day.
The device also needs to be able to read ten times that much data on a daily basis. For comparison, a terabyte of data is one thousand gigabytes, which is four times the biggest storage capacity option for the latest iPhone X.
ISTANBUL Turkeys president on Saturday blamed the countrys economic downturn on the United States and other nations that he claims are waging war against his country.
Speaking in the northeastern province of Rize, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that dollars, euros and gold were now the bullets, cannonballs and missiles of the economic war being waged against our country.
Erdogan promised supporters that Turkey was taking the necessary precautions to protect its economy but added the most important thing is breaking the hands firing these weapons.
Turkey was hit by a financial shockwave this week as its currency nosedived over concerns about the governments economic policies and a trade dispute with the United States.
The lira tumbled 14 percent Friday, to 6.51 per dollar, a massive move for a currency that will make Turkish residents poorer and further erode international investors confidence in the country. The currency drop is particularly painful for Turkey because it finances a lot of its economic growth with foreign money.
The currencys drop 41 percent so far this year is a gauge of fear over a country coming to terms with years of high debt, international concern over Erdogans push to amass power, and a souring in relations with allies like the U.S.
In an opinion piece published in The New York Times on Friday, Erdogan criticized the tensions with the U.S., saying a failure to reverse this trend of unilateralism and disrespect will require us to start looking for new friends and allies.
Among the issues, Turkey has arrested an American pastor and put him on trial for espionage and terror-related charges linked to a failed coup attempt in the country two years ago. The pastor has proclaimed his innocence.
The U.S. responded by slapping sanctions on Turkey and threatening more. The sides held talks in Washington this week but failed to resolve the spat.
President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted that he had authorized the doubling of steel and aluminum tariffs on Turkey. He said the tariffs on aluminum imports would be increased to 20 percent and those on steel to 50 percent as the Turkish lira slides rapidly downward against our very strong Dollar!
Our relations with Turkey are not good at this time! he wrote.
The United States is the biggest destination for Turkish steel exports, with 11 percent of the Turkish export volume. The lira fell further after Trumps tweet.
Turkey later said Erdogan had held a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss economic ties. It did not disclose details, but the move suggests Turkey might gravitate further from its NATO allies toward cooperation with Russia, whose relations with the...
On August 9th, Sydney beamed out strong support for Julian Assange with a live-to-air event: THE GAGGING OF JULIAN ASSANGE. The venue, with live audience, was Politics in the Pub at the Sydney Gaelic Club. Thanks goes to the #Unity4J movement and particularly its Stream Team, for their invaluable technical support.
In Sydney, the speakers were Cathy Vogan, Professor Stuart Rees and Mike Head. Christine was interviewed two days earlier by Cathy Vogan, and this was pre-loaded to the stream. There had been mysterious problems, in getting her connected to the live monthly VIGILS that #Unity4J have been running, so no risks were taken
Here is the entire show, as broadcast on August 9th, with a direct link to Suzie Dawsons talk. As viewers will see from the opening remarks by Vogan, there was a power failure (and internet lockout) while Christines interview was playing. Dawson focuses on the #Unity4J movement to save Julian now 2700 people strong, and comprised of artists, writers, techs and speakers. She addresses the idea of bringing together people with different political opinions, who have one common aim, and how thats been panning out.
Big shout-out to Gard Lord, @Jarraparilla, for this list of the main points made by Christine Assange:
*** If UK get him on the [bail] warrant, which should be defunct, they can then drop that [and] serve the Grand Jury indictment with no proper legal process. Then they can extradite Julian to the US, again without legal process because you dont have to present a prima facie case

Heres the latest wrap of what the Arabic-language media is saying about the United States. This time: the ongoing spat between Washington and Ankara; ISIS and the U.S. presence in Syria; and tension between the U.S. and Iran.
Tension between Turkey and the U.S. increased rapidly of late because of Washingtons support to Syrian Kurds with weapons and logistics, the U.S. embrace of Fethullah Glen, the arrest of American priest Andrew Brunson, the sanctions imposed on the interior and justice ministers and other economic measures that damaged Turkey. The U.S. believes Turkey went a long way in opposing American policy even crossing the point of no return, according to sources. Turkey continues to strengthen its relations with Americas rivals top of the list are Russia, Iran and China. Turkey announced it rejected the American request that it join in sanctioning Iran. At the same time Turkey participated in the Sochi talks.
[Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan was talking at a gathering in Ordu on the Black Sea about the [imprisoned] American priest [Andrew Brunson] that led to an escalation in the diplomatic spat between the countries, both members of NATO. It also led to a drastic decline in the value of the Turkish lira. Its a mistake to try to bring Turkey to its knees by dishing out threats for the sake of a priest, said Erdogan. I say to those of you in America, once again, Shame on you! Shame on you! Youre replacing your strategic NATO partner with a priest.

EDITORIAL from Turkeys Daily Sabah
Reading The New York Times editorial page is no easy task. Most times, one cannot be completely sure whether bad journalism or ideological blindness is to blame for the papers ability to get things wrong when it comes to Turkey.
In the twisted world of The New York Times Editorial Board, the designated terrorist organization PKKs founder Abdullah calan, who is currently serving a life sentence in Turkey for his involvement in deadly attacks against Turkish security forces and civilians alike, is a leader jailed as a terrorist. Turkeys efforts to stop terror attacks and arrest would-be suicide bombers before they reach Europe, including the declaration of a state of emergency in July 2016, were part of a crackdown on dissent. Fetullah Glen, who has been micromanaging a criminal empire from rural Pennsylvania, is a saint.
At this point, however, the Turkish people understand that their countrys efforts to protect its national interests are bound to be criticized by The New York Times. In recent years, your newspaper has been at the forefront of every smear campaign against Turkey, its government and its friends and allies. The good news is that spreading fake news disguised as personal opinions wont change the Turkish governments policies or influence the public opinion in Turkey. To make matters worse, the number of Westerners who would buy into those lies is decreasing as the world changes, slowly and painfully, on U.S. President Donald Trumps watch.
Its time to forget everything you think you know about the old Turkey and meet the new Turkey. Here are the basics:
Fetullah Glen isnt an Islamic cleric. He is the leader of an armed organization that murdered 251 innocent people cold bloodedly, dropped laser-guided bombs on civilians, imprisoned critics and rivals on false charges, cheated its way into public institutions, and illegally eavesdropped on thousands of journalists, politicians, academics and businesspeople in Turkey. Glens shadowy organization continues to defraud American taxpayers through a network of charter schools in the United States.
The PKK isnt a national liberation movement or a group of eco-friendly idealists. It is a terrorist organization that killed tens of thousands of innocent people in Turkey. In addition to carrying out suicide attacks, such as two car bombings in downtown Ankara and the December 2016 assault near Vodafone Arena in Istanbul, PKK terrorists have a long history of kidnappings, arson, robberies and assassinations most of which targeted members of Turkeys Kurdish community. Whether The New York Times likes it or not, Turkey will take neces...

Brussels Court issues Summary Judgement against Jorge Bergoglio and other Ninth Circle members; Palace Coup in the Vatican may disrupt Irish Papal visit as common law arrest teams converge on a militarized Dublin "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"
Breaking News Communique from The International Tribunal of Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS)
August 12, 2018
Brussels, Rome, Dublin
A European Court has issued a Summary Judgement against twelve accused members of the Ninth Circle sacrificial cult after none of the accused contested the criminal charges brought against them. Pope Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, is named in the August 10 Judgement of the Brussels-based International Common Law Court of Justice, which reads in part,
By refusing to respond to the Courts Summons the accused are declaring their implied guilt pro confesso, as if they have confessed to the charges brought against them. Accordingly, the Judgement requested by the plaintiffs is hereby granted, and all twelve of the accused are declared to be guilty of a monstrous criminal conspiracy to abduct, traffic, ritually torture and murder children. A Bench Warrant is hereby issued for the immediate arrest and imprisonment of the accused prior to their final sentencing.
Besides Jorge Bergoglio, the convicted cult members include Irish Catholic Cardinal Sean Brady and Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, prominent European politicians and businessmen, and two top officials of the World Council of Churches, including Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald of Canada. (For a complete list of the guilty see the July 12, 2018 posting at www.itccs.org )
