Business and biodiversity benefit from Kyrgyz agroforestry systems "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

KOK-TALAA, Batken province, Kyrgyzstan  The Batken region is located in the southern part of the Fergana Valley, on Kyrgyzstans border with Uzbekistan. Like the rest of Kyrgyzstan, much of its territory is mountainous, so the amount of land suitable for human settlement is small. The village of Kok-Talaa is located in the heart of Batken. It experiences soil-baking summers, so 80 percent of the land around it is planted with gardens; the lack of irrigation and drinking water means large croplands would wither. Since 1994, local farmers have reoriented from animal husbandry and cultivation of major agricultural crops to gardens based on the principles of agroforestry a method of growing useful trees and bushes in combination with vegetables and fruits, where the taller plants shelter the shorter ones from the sun and provide soil moisture from their deep underground root systems. Batken is an arid region, yet agroforestry can make the land bloom. Image by Cholpon Uzakbaeva for Mongabay. Elsewhere in Kyrgyzstan, there is a moratorium on the transformation of lands like these to other uses, like the growing of trees. But this doesnt apply to the Batken region. The case of Batken is a unique example of agroforestry in Kyrgyzstan. Since the Soviet period the local farmers specialized in growing fruit trees, especially the famous Batken apricot trees, says Klara Dzhakypbekova, coordinator of the SUSWALFOOD Research Project, a program of the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences in Germany. The National Land Use legislation actually hinders the growth of trees on

Latam Eco Review: Kissable sharks and spectacled bears "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The most popular stories from our Spanish-language service, Mongabay Latam, followed a new green-eyed shark species in Belize, salmon farms in Patagonia, blast fishing in Peru, a cocaine-laden plane in a Peruvian park, and an Andean bear mystery, also in Peru. Belizes tiny sixgill shark species at risk A little shark so adorable, you want to hug and kiss it, is how a researcher described the Atlantic sixgill shark (Hexanchus vitulus), a new species found in the depths of Belizes oceans. First thought to be a bigeye sixgill shark (Hexanchus nakamurai), a genetic study showed this small green-eyed shark is a new species. However, deep-sea fishing threatens its existence.

Ich hatte gerade ein lustiges Erlebnis. Ich sollte mir bei einem Kunden ein Modul angucken, das Analytics macht, um am Ende Geschftszahlen vorhersagen zu knnen. In der Beschreibung stand was von Machine Learning. Ich war also ganz begeistert, dass ich mein Wissen aus der Neuronale-Netze-Vorlesung anwenden kann, und guckte durch den Code und fand kein Machine Learning. Ich fand ganz normale Statistik. Bisschen Bayessche Statistik. Ich will das nicht kleinreden, das verwendet wahrscheinlich jeder von uns fr seine Spamfilter. Aber unter Machine Learning hatte ich mir schne neuronale Netze oder zumindest eine Boltzmann-Maschine vorgestellt.

Ich frage also den Kunden, was da los ist, und der meinte: Oh ja, das Marketing (also nicht deren Marketing jetzt, sondern das in der Branche allgemein!) hat vor ner Weile die Begriffe umbelegt. Machine Learning bedeutet heute, was man frher unter Statistik fhrte. Wenn du Machine Learning im frheren Sinn meinst, sagst du heute Deep Learning.

Informatiker unter euch werden wissen, dass Deep Learning ein Fachbegriff ist, der bereits fr eine bestimmte Art von Trainingsverfahren fr neuronale Netze belegt ist. Jedenfalls nicht der Gattungsbegriff fr Machine Learning.

Da musste ich an Frank denken. Der hat mir nmlich neulich erzhlt, dass er auf einer Konferenz war. Frank hat ja eine Firma gegrndet, die verschlsselnde Telefone bauen. Er fhlte sich also angesprochen, als da berall Crypto stand. Stellt sich raus: Crypto steht heute fr Bitcoin und Blockchain. Wenn du echte Crypto meinst, heit das heute Cyber.

Breaking With Wall Street: L.A. Puts It To The Voters "IndyWatch Feed War"

Wall Street owns the country. That was the opening line of a fiery speech by populist leader Mary Ellen Lease in 1890. Franklin Roosevelt said it again in a letter to Colonel House in 1933, and Sen. Dick Durbin was still saying it in 2009. The banks hard to believe in a time when were facing a banking crisis that many of the banks created are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill, Durbin said in an interview. And they frankly own the place. Wall Street banks triggered a credit crisis in 2008-09 that wiped out over $19 trillion in household wealth, turned some 10 million families out of their homes, and cost almost 9 million jobs in the US alone; yet the banks were bailed out without penalty, while defrauded homebuyers were left without recourse or compensation.

Israel to remove UN Palestinian agency from Jerusalem "IndyWatch Feed War"

The UN agency for Palestinian refugees on Friday expressed concern after Jerusalems Israeli mayor said he would remove it from the city.

Mayor Nir Barkat announced in a statement Thursday a detailed plan to remove UNRWA from Jerusalem and replace its services with municipal services.

UNRWA said such a move would affect its humanitarian operations and installations in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem.

The agency runs schools and health centres particularly in the Shuafat refugee camp where it says 24,000 Palestinians are estimated to live.

UNRWA has come under pressure from Israel and the United States.

AFP/File | Palestinian girls outside a school run by UNRWA in the Askar refugee camp east of Nablus in the occupied West Bank on September 2, 2018

The two countries object to the fact that Palestinians can pass refugee status to their children, and want the number of refugees covered by the agency to be sharply reduced.

The US administration ending its funding to UNRWA in August, the latest in a series of controversial moves applauded by the Israeli government but criticised by the Palestinians and the international community.

The US decision has created a rare opportunity to replace UNRWAs services with services of the Jerusalem Municipality, Barkat said.

We are putting an end to the lie of the Palestinian refugee problem and the attempts at creating a false sovereignty within a sovereignty, he added.

The issue of Palestinian refugees along with the status of Jerusalem has long been a major sticking point in peace efforts.

More than 750,000 Palestinians fled or were expelled during the 1948 war surrounding Israels creation.

They and their descendants are now classified as refugees who fall under UNRWAs mandate.

Palestinian leaders continue to call for at least some of them to be allowed to return to their former homes now inside Israel under any peace deal.

Israel says Palestinians must give up the so-called right of return and that allowing descendants of refugees to inherit their status only perpetuates the problem instead of solving it.

Israel also considers all of Jerusalem as its united capital, while the Palestinians see the predominantly Arab eastern area as the capital of their future state.

Some five million registered Palestinians refugees are eligible for UNRWA services in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, the blockaded Gaza Strip, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.

TruthTheory "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Mayukh Saha

People in our generation find opportunities to work and be healthy at the same time; most corporate workplaces have attached gyms and awareness about physical health is at an all-time high.

Still thanks to some undefined ennui, people ease out of situations that require them to work hard.

 

As a result, a few things are quite strikingly common nowadays: joggers are becoming a rare sight, so are fit and healthy people.

Bad things like diabetes and obesity are becoming common.

Inactivity has made things worse, with pains and aches that one doesnt even know how to describe.

Here are some easy exercises you can do to help yourself, if you experience pain related to inactivity.

 

Sit ups
One of the most deceptively simple and effective exercises that can rid people of most of the pains that arise with inactivity.

You stand, with your hands touching the back of your head.

Now literally sit down and stand up.

 

This simple but initially quite painful exercise gives you shapely glutes and your legs quite the jolt.

Plank
Google the position. Its just staying in that position for a while. Initially, 20-30 seconds is great, but try and increase it to at least 2 mins.

 

Push ups
Again, deceptively simple, but very effective. Google the procedure. Start with 5 and increase to 25.

Or, if you live in Moscow and have forgotten your wallet on the way to work, take the metro.

Yes, you heard it right.

 

Moscow metro has installed a ticket vending machine which will make exercising a thing if you dont want to pay for the ride.

Basically, it is an interactive vending machine, which measures 30 sit ups that you must do like a countdown and prints you a ticket.

This has become quite famous as a move on the part of the city of Moscow. One of the many passengers...

Fan Bingbing, Chinas screen empress, silenced "IndyWatch Feed War"

The countrys most successful film star has fallen foul of the authorities. Fan Bingbing was the countrys most famous actress

By Tom Hancock in Shanghai

In Chinas male-dominated film industry, Fan Bingbing was the countrys most famous actress, earning the honorific master usually reserved for men for her self-confidence and determination. I dont need to marry into a wealthy family. I am my own wealthy family, she told Chinese reporters.

Ms Fan was right: a multimillionaire with a string of hits behind her, she would win roles in Hollywood blockbusters such as X-Men and repeatedly topped Chinas list of celebrity earners with an income of Rmb300m ($44m) last year, according to Forbes.

Then, she disappeared.

Placed under investigation for tax evasion, a three-month blackout on media reports of her whereabouts since June contributed to a deepening sense that the net of repression under President Xi Jinping was spreading ever wider.

Its not the fact that Fan Bingbing evaded taxes that worries people, its that she disappeared, said human rights lawyer Liu Xiaoyuan.

Ms Fans rise tracked the growth of Chinas film industry to become the worlds second-largest movie market by revenue.

Her downfall signals an end to years of lax regulation which saw widespread tax dodging, according to industry insiders.

Born in 1981 into a relatively humble family in the eastern city of Qingdao, Ms Fan later recalled: When I walked into the entertainment industry, my family had no connections, so I knew I had to risk failure and bear the consequences alone. She built those connections through alliances with powerful men notably Wang Jinghua, an agent who went on to run Huayi Brothers, Chinas top studio, and director Feng Xiaogang, who cast her in the 2003 hit film Cell Phone, in which Ms Fan played the mistress of a television presenter.

Her prodigious work ethic she would make four or five films a year combined with her doll-like looks were key to her expanding appeal but burdened her with years of media speculation that she had undergone plastic surgery. She tackled the controversy head on, enlisting a hospital in Beijing to issue an official denial and suing another facility for damages. The battles seemed to embolden Ms Fan, who split with Huayi Brothers in 2007 to found her own pr...

Officials claim police drones will revitalize downtown and "create a community connection" "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

If you are having trouble digesting the headline, just imagine how much trouble I am having trying to write about it.

In what has to be the most ludicrous excuse ever made by police to spy on citizens, this one is at the top of my list.

Last month the Riverhead Police Department in New York and town officials claimed that drones, increased foot patrols and surveillance cameras would help revitalize downtown.

The headline reads, "Drones, police foot patrols, more floated to uplift Riverhead's downtown."

Were concerned about revitalizing downtown, and part of the revitalization of downtown is also public safety, Supervisor Laura Jens-Smith said in a Sept. 4 interview. Questions have come up, whether it be the perception of safety..."

How do officials plan to change the public's "perception of safety"?

Smith claims that police drones will create more of a community connection in the area. More eyes and ears in the area, will hopefully lead to more people coming to shop and recreate in downtown more.

To claim that surveillance drones will "create more of a community connection" is a new low by anyone's standards. [ I am referring to you, DHS.]

Three questions about police surveillance drones that need to be asked.

1.) Will the police use Riverhead's, electric-powered Luminati Aerospace drones to revitalize downtown?

Two years ago, the Long Island Press called Luminati a secretive drone company, that refuses to reveal who their clients are.

2.) Will the police use...

Are You Sure Eighty Years Are Enough? "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Sometimes, people say that around 80 years of life will be enough for them, but have they thought it through?


When asked how long they want to live, people often say no more than ten years above their countrys average lifespan. This, mind you, is in a world where aging is still inevitable; people know they wont be in top shape during those ten extra years, and yet, perhaps hoping they might be an exception to that rule, they still wish they could get that little extra time. Even when told that they will live these extra years in complete health, the most common choice is the current maximum recorded human lifespan, which is roughly 120 years.

If we assume that no rejuvenation therapies are available to extend the time you spend in youthful health, then it is somewhat understandable if you dont feel up for a very long life, because the odds are that its final decades will be increasingly miserable ; however, if rejuvenation therapies were available, and you could be fully healthy for an indefinite time, why stop at 120 years? Life extension advocates have probably all had their fair share of conversations with people who insist that 80-odd years will be more than enough for them, health or no healthworse still, some dont care about preserving their health precisely because they think that 80 years is a sufficiently long time to live.

How long one wants to live is only his or her business; just like no one should have the right to force other people to live no longer than the current maximum (an imposition that would indirectly result from a hypothetical ban on life extension therapies), no one should have the right to force anyone else to live longer than 80 years, if thats what he or she wishes for whatever reason. Indeed, its not the right to die when you see fit thats at issue here; the question is whether people who claim that 80 years are enough have seriously thought the matter through before making their minds up or are simply parroting what others typically say out of social pressure.

Chinese spy chips are found in hardware used by Apple, Amazon, reports Bloomberg "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Apple, Amazon denies report of servers being compromised by Chinese spy chips

Chinese spying chips have been found on servers used by nearly 30 American companies, including Apple and Amazon, according to a Bloomberg BusinessWeek report on Thursday. However, Apple, Amazon Web Services and other involved companies have denied reports of being spied upon by the Chinese government.

The tiny surveillance chip, which is not much bigger than a grain of rice, can bypass all security checks and give Beijing secret access to internal networks, Bloomberg BusinessWeek reported citing 17 unnamed intelligence and company sources.

According to Bloomberg BusinessWeek, a unit of the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army intruded the supply chain of US-based computer hardware maker Super Micro Computer Inc to plant malicious chips that could be used to steal corporate and government secrets.

These malicious chips, which were not part of the original server motherboards, had been hidden on server motherboards during the manufacturing process in China. Further, these chips were disguised as signal conditioning couplers, to motherboards that ended up in US servers. Then, the infected motherboards were deployed by U.S. military, U.S. intelligence agencies, and many U.S. companies like Apple and Amazon.

Apple made its discovery of suspicious chips inside Supermicro servers around May 2015, after detecting odd network activity and firmware problems, according to a person familiar with the timeline, the report said.

Since the implants were small, the amount of code they contained was small as well. But they were capable of doing two very important things: telling the device to communicate with one of several anonymous computers elsewhere on the internet that were loaded with more complex code; and preparing the devices operating system to accept this new code.

According to the publication, the chips were reportedly added to help Chinese government spy on American companies and their users, which is more difficult to pull off and potentially more devastating, promising the kind of long-term, stealth access that spy agencies are willing to invest millions of dollars and many years to get.

Depending on the board model, the chips varied slightly in size, suggesting that the attackers had supplied different factories with different batches, the report said.

During the same period, Amazon Web Services (AWS) too found the malicious chips. While the Bloomberg report states that both Apple and AWS notified the same to U.S. authorities, the above companies are claiming that none of it was f...

Peter #Kropotkin: Letter to #Lenin (4 March 1920) #anarchism "IndyWatch Feed War"

Even if the dictatorship of the party were an appropriate means to bring about a blow to the capitalist system (which I strongly doubt), it is nevertheless harmful for the creation of a new socialist system. What are necessary and needed are local institutions, local forces; but there are none, anywhere.

Originally published by Cambridge University Press in The Conquest of Bread and Other Writings, Edited by Marshall Shatz.

Dmitrov, 4 March 1920

Esteemed Vladimir Ilich,

Several employees of the postal-telegraph department have come to me with the request that I bring to your attention information about their truly desperate situation. As the problem concerns not only the commissariat of mail and telegraphs alone, but the general condition of everyday life in Russia, I hasten to fulfil their request.

You know, of course, that to live in the Dmitrov district on the salary received by these employees is absolutely impossible. It is impossible even to buy a bushel of potatoes with this [salary]; I know this from personal experience. In exchange they ask for soap and salt, of which there is none. Since [the price] of flour has gone up if you manage to get any it is impossible to buy eight pounds of grain and five pounds of wheat. In short, without receiving provisions, the employees are doomed to a very real famine.

Meanwhile, along with such prices, the meagre provisions which the postal and telegraph employees receive from the Moscow postal and telegraph supply centre (according to the decree of the 15 August 1918: eight pounds of wheat to an employee or to employees, and five pounds of wheat to incapacitated members of a family) have not been delivered for two months already. The local supply centres cannot distribute their provisions, and the appeal of the employees (125 persons in the Dmitrov area) to Moscow remains unanswered. A month ago one of the employees wrote to you personally, but he has received no answer thus far.

I consider it a duty to testify that the situation of these employees is truly desperate. The majority are literally starving. This is obvious from their faces. Many are preparing to leave home without knowing where to go. And in the meantime, I will say openly that they carry out their work conscientiously; they have familiarized themselves with [their job] and to lose such workers would not be in the interest of local life in any way.

Amal Clooney calls on Myanmars Suu Kyi to pardon Reuters reporters "IndyWatch Feed War"

Image result for Amal Clooney, photos, Myanmar

The families of two Reuters reporters imprisoned in Myanmar have asked for a pardon, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney told a press freedom event at the United Nations on Friday as she pressed the countrys civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi to agree.

Clooney is a member of the legal team representing Reuters journalists Wa Lone, 32, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 28, who were convicted on Sept. 3 under the colonial-era Official Secrets Act and sentenced to seven years in prison.

She said the reporters wives wrote a really heartfelt letter to the government about a week ago pleading for a pardon, not because their husbands had done anything wrong, but because it would allow them to be released from prison.

Clooney said Myanmars President Win Myint would make the decision to issue a pardon in consultation with Suu Kyi.

Image result for win myint, Aung San Suu Kyi, photos

Aung San Suu Kyi (right) and U Win Myint

In a message to Suu Kyi, Clooney told Reuters: You fought for so many years to be freed from the same prison where they now sit and now you have the power to actually remedy this injustice today if you wanted to.

The Myanmar mission to the United Nations did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Myanmar government spokesman Zaw Htay has said the court was independent and followed due process in the case.

The reporters pleaded not guilty and have been detained since December. Kyaw Soe Oo has a three-year-old daughter. Last month, Wa Lones wife gave birth to their first child, a girl, whom Clooney said Wa Lone has not yet met.

The reporters had been working on a Reuters investigation into the killing of 10 Rohingya Muslim men and boys by security forces and local Buddhists in western Myanmars Rakhine state during an army crackdown that began in August last year. The operation sent nearly 700,000 people fleeing to Bangladesh.

A U.N mandated fact-finding mission said Myanmars military carried out mass killings and gang rapes of Muslim Rohingya with genocidal intent and called for top generals to be prosecuted. Myanmar rejected the findings.

Suu Kyi said at a forum in Vietnam this month that the case had nothing to do with freedom of expression. She said the reporters had been sentenced for handling official secrets and were not jailed because they were journalists.

Emerging Markets Report (10-05-2018) "IndyWatch Feed War"

A nagging problem went from bad to worse Friday as investors worldwide dumped emerging market assets on speculation that the US Federal Reserve will soon be forced to accelerate its rate hike schedule.

Signs first emerged in US bond markets as spiking yields in Treasuries prompted a new round of sell-offs. The yield on a 10-year Treasury peaked at 3.23% on Thursday its highest level since 2010. The suddenness of the increases caught investors off-guard, with many looking to todays US nonfarm payroll report for clues as to whether the US Fed will maintain its current course on interest rates.

The jobs report actually came in below expectations on total employment: 134,000 nonfarm jobs were created in September, below the consensus estimates of 185,000. However, the more consequential metric here is wage growth, and that came in just under expectations: a 2.8% year-over-year increase, short of the 3% that Wall Street had predicted.

US bond markets have thus far been indifferent on the job report, with the 10-year Treasury trading sideways at around 3.2%.

Emerging markets are another story entirely, and heres a rundown of recent setbacks:

Israeli soldiers kill a child in northern Gaza
IMEMC 4 Oct Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian child on Wednesday [3 Oct] when they shot him with a high-velocity gas bomb in the head, and wounded 25 other Palestinians, during protests near Beit Hanoun (Erez) Terminal, in northern Gaza. The child, Ahmad Samir Abu Habel, 15, was shot with a gas bomb which struck him directly in his head, and lodged in his skull. A video [below] shows gas pouring from his skull, where the canister lodged, and a group of young men rushing up to help him to an ambulance.
The soldiers also targeted a Palestinian ambulance with a gas bomb and several live rounds, near the crossing. Furthermore, the soldiers injured 25 other Palestinians, some with live fire who were rushed to the Indonesian Hospital in nearby Beit Lahia. The rest suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation.

Blasey Fords FBI polygraph buddy pressured woman to change story "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

A former FBI agent and lifelong friend of Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford allegedly pressured a woman to change her statement that she knew nothing about an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh in 1982, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Leland Keyser, who Ford claims was at the infamous high school groping party, told FBI investigators that mutual friend and retired FBI agent, Monica McLean, warned her that Senate Republicans were going to use her statement to rebut Fords allegation against Kavanaugh, and that she should at least clarify her story to say that she didnt remember the party not that it had never happened.

The Journal also reports that after the FBI sent their initial report on the Kavanaugh allegations to the White House, they sent the White House and Senate an additional package of information which included text messages from McLean to Keyser.

McLeans lawyer, David Laufman, categorically denied that his client pressured Keyser, saying in a statement: Any notion or claim that Ms. McLean pressured Leland Keyser to alter Ms. Keysers account of what she recalled concerning the alleged incident between Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh is absolutely false.

Ms. Keysers lawyer on Sept. 23 said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that she had no recollection of attending a party with Judge Kavanaugh, whom she said she didnt know. That same day, however, she told the Washington Post that she believed Dr. Ford. On Sept. 29, two days after Dr. Ford and the judge testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ms. Keysers attorney sent a letter to the panel saying his client wasnt refuting Dr. Fords account and that she believed it but couldnt corroborate it. WSJ

Keysers admission to the FBI which is subject to perjury laws may influnce the Senates upcoming confirmation debates. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) said that he found the most significant material in the FBI report to be statements from people close to Ford who wanted to corroborate her account and were sympathetic in wishing they could, but they could not. 

In his testimony last week, Judge Kavanaugh sought to use Ms. Keysers initial statement to undercut his accuser. Dr. Fords allegation is not merely uncorroborated, it is refuted by the very people she says were there, including by a long-time friend of hers, he said. Refuted....

Easy FPGA CPU with MAX1000 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Ok, well admit it. We like FPGAs because it reminds us of wiring up a 100-in-1 kit when we were kids. But the truth is, many projects are just as well off to have a CPU. But theres a real sweet spot when you have a CPU and an FPGA together. Intel (or Altera, if you prefer) has the NIOS II CPU core, but thats hard to configure, right? Maybe not, thanks to a project by [jefflieu] over on GitHub. Hes assembled some basic definitions and libraries to easily relatively speaking use NIOS II on the MAX1000 as well as a few other boards. The MAX1000 is a pretty nice board for about $30, so this is a very inexpensive way to get into System on Chip (SOC) development.

[jeff] goes into more detail in a blog post, but the idea is pretty simple. We tried it, and it works very well, although we found a few things hard to follow so read on to see how we managed.

The idea behind SoC development is you define your CPU configuration and then your hardware devices. Then you write software to talk to those custom hardware devices and of course write your actual application code. So you dont just write a program, you also define the CPU the program will run on and the hardware that it will talk to.

There are several ready-to-go I/O devices included in the project, but the real fun will be writing your own. The Intel tools have the C compiler and everything else you need. You could also do everything from scratch, but these tools make it much easier to get started.

Go To Shell

The first thing you need is to open a NIOS shell. On our machine, this was handled by a script in the nios2eds directory called nios2_command_shell.sh. We were running Linux, but [jeff] was using Cygwin under Windows. This just runs a system shell but sets up the PATH and other environment variables so you can use the tools.

The project files called recon live in a few subdirectories rooted where you unpacked the archive. As you might guess the hw directory has Verilog and other hardware-related items in it. The sw directory contains libraries and header files and, of course, your program to run in the CPU.

If you are used to sending code to, say, an Arduino or a PIC, this is going to be a little different. You still generate code. But instead of sending it to the CPU, the hardware configuration for the NIOS CPU gets bundled with the code into a single configuration file you can program with the standard Intel programmer.

The Long Journey to FEMA's Presidential Alert Test "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

First such test since the emergency alert system went live in 2012

The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), yesterday conducted a nation-wide test of the Presidential Alert feature of its Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system

While there have been previous tests of the alert system, and wireless AMBER Alerts concerning missing children or dangerous weather conditions have been sent out for years, this is the first time that the alert system feature that permits the nation-wide communication of a national emergency situation has been tested.

The WEA system, along with the more familiar broadcast Emergency Alert System (EAS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Radio system, make up the federal core of what is known as the Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS)Initial reports seem to indicate that the Presidential Alert test, along with the test of the Emergency Alert System that accompanied it, operated generally according to plan with some 75 percent of the 225 million cell phones in the U.S. likely receiving the alert.

There have been sporadic reports of people not receiving the Presidential Alert, many on AT&T wireless service, which according to FEMA can happen for a variety of reasons including not having good cell service or the phone being in use during the test. The alert message is supposed to be delayed and then pushed to your phone once you hang up, but some people said that never happened. Your carrier may also not be a participant in the Wireless Emergency Alert system, but...

Iran Sanctions U.S. Responds To Court Order By Canceling Treaty That Gave The Court Jurisdiction "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Earlier today the International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued a provisional judgment (pdf, 29 pages) against some of the U.S. sanction against Iran. The ruling is a preliminary injunction over urgent humanitarian issues that will later be followed by a final judgment. The U.S. responded by canceling the treaty the gave the court jurisdiction over the case. The ICJ is the main judicial organ of the United Nations and settles legal disputes between member states. The rulings of the court, based in The Hague, are binding. But there is no global police force that can make the U.S. government follow the court's ruling. Nevertheless the judgment sets a precedent that other courts will use when more specific cases against the U.S. sanctions against Iran come up.

Pakistan opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif arrested ahead of polls "IndyWatch Feed War"

Pakistani opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif was arrested on Friday in a longstanding corruption case, the countrys anti-graft agency said, nine days before crucial by-elections are due to be held.

Shehbaz Sharif FILE photo

His brother, ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, was sentenced earlier this year to 10 years in prison by the same agency after the Supreme Court removed him from power.

Fridays arrest, by agents of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in Lahore, involved a case of alleged corruption in a low-cost housing scheme, called Aashyana (Shelter), when Shehbaz Sharif was chief minister of Punjab province.

NAB Lahore has arrested former chief minister of Punjab Shehbaz Sharif in Aashyana company case. NAB will produce the former chief minister of Punjab in the honorable accountability court tomorrow, a statement from the agency said.

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry welcomed the arrest and offered the agency any help it needed.

This step today is a big step, he told reporters. New Prime Minister Imran Khans party campaigned on an anti-corruption platform.

Nawaz Sharif has denounced corruption cases against him and his partys leaders as politically motivated, and both brothers deny any wrongdoing. Nawaz Sharif was released from prison last month pending an appeal against his conviction.

The former prime minister was arrested 10 days before the July 25 general election, which was won by cricket star turned politician Imran Khan, who now leads the new government.

The Sharifs Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz came in second place in the election. Their party, along with all other major opposition parties, denounced the polls as rigged, alleging the military and courts of tipping the scale in favor of Khans party.

The Sharifs party accused the new government of using the anti-corruption agency for political victimization.

The government is afraid that the PML-N isnt broken despite all the cheap tactics, party spokeswoman Maryam Aurangzeb said, adding: It is an attempt to influence the by-election.

By-elections to fill 11 parliamentary seats and 19 provincial assembly seats are scheduled for Oct. 14. Those seats remain empty because of court-ordered delays and the ability of leading candidates to run in several constituencies at once, but only represent one.

The by-elections could affect the slim majority Khans coalition government holds in parliament, though many of the constituencies are considered strongholds of his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party....

US unemployment falls to 48-year low in September "IndyWatch Feed War"

The US jobless rate tumbled in September to its lowest level since December 1969, even as job creation slowed, likely due in part to Hurricane Florence, the government reported Friday.

Unemployment fell to a 48-year-low of 3.7 percent last month from 3.9 percent, an unusually large drop, according to the Labor Departments closely-watched monthly jobs report.

Non-farm employers added just 134,000 net new positions, far weaker than analysts expected.

A month ahead of hard-fought congressional elections, the result was sure to delight US President Donald Trump, who has eagerly taken credit for Americas extended run of good economic health but whose Republican party faces a possible rebuke from disenchanted voters in elections in November.

AFP/File | The US jobless rate tumbled in September to its lowest level since December 1969, even as job creation slowed, likely due in part to Hurricane Florence, the government reported

Hurricane Florence, the storm which made landfall along the mid-Atlantic US coast on September 14, caused widespread disruption for homes and employers but it was not possible to determine the extent to which this might have depressed the September jobs numbers, officials said.

But economists had expected job creation to slow to 184,000, even with the hurricane impact, from the 270,000 net new positions created in August, which was revised up from the original report.

Employees temporarily left unable to work during natural disasters can be left off the governments monthly jobs survey, especially part time workers who receive no pay during the week of the survey, meaning figures can rebound in the month after a storm.

Meanwhile, the labor force participation rate held steady at 62.7 percent, while the number of unemployed people fell by 270,000 to six million, with the largest drop among adult women.

Worker pay edged up 0.3 percent for the month, and is 2.8 percent higher than the same month last year, a notch above inflation.

Job gains were noted in healthcare, up 26,000, transportation and warehousing, up 24,000, and construction, up 23,000.

But the banner result from Augusts jobs numbers was surely the record low jobless rate.

Her name is Kizuna Ai, and she has more than two million subscribers to her channel. She's the most-watched "virtual YouTuber" on the site. Kizuna Ai is part of an emerging trend where 3D avatars rather than humans are becoming celebrities on YouTube, with dedicated fanbases and corporate deals. It's becoming so popular that one company is investing tens of millions in "virtual talent" and talent agencies are being established to manage these avatars.

It's a movement that has big implications for the future it could change how brands market their products and how we interact with technology. It could even let us live forever.

The CDC's "National Violent Death Reporting System" posts inaccurate police killings figures (Updated) "IndyWatch Feed Tech"


Earlier this month it was revealed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) now includes all fifty states.

"The NVDRS claims to be a surveillance system that pulls together data on violent deaths in all 50 states including information about homicides, such as homicides perpetrated by an intimate partner (e.g., boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband), child abuse and neglect or child abuse homicides, suicides, and deaths where individuals are killed by law enforcement in the line of duty. "

As you will see the NVDRS's "surveillance system" for Americans killed by police officers raises many questions.

Clicking on the only database available "Violent Deaths 2003-2015" reveals a disturbing fact about police officer involved deaths.

Researchers have only one choice, which is to go to Section 3 and tick the box marked "victim injured by law enforcement officer" and click the year you want to view. And as you will see the results are highly questionable.

The CDC claims that in 2015 only 358 citizens were killed by law enforcement. The same is true for the past six years. (See the results below.)

358 citizens killed (2015)
267 citizens killed (2014)

How Trumps New Trade Deal Could Prolong His Pollution Legacy "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

President Donald Trump's new trade deal with Canada and Mexico makes no mention of climate change, but it's likely to have lasting implications for North America's energy future. In many ways, the deal extends features of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that environmentalists say promote fossil fuel development and polluting practices. But it also contains new provisions that could make it easier for corporations to challenge climate and environment regulations in the three countries even before they're adopted. In this way, the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) has the potential to enshrine the Trump administration's anti-regulatory agenda into one of the country's most important trade agreements, environmental advocates said.

The Royal Touch: How Saudi Money Keeps Washington At War In Yemen "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

It was May 2017. The Saudis were growing increasingly nervous. For more than two years they had been relying heavily on U.S. military support and bombs to defeat Houthi rebels in Yemen. Now, the Senate was considering a bipartisan resolution to cut off military aid and halt a big sale of American-made bombs to Saudi Arabia. Fortunately for them, despite mounting evidence that the U.S.-backed, supplied, and fueled air campaign in Yemen was targeting civilians, the Saudi government turned out to have just the weapon needed to keep those bombs and other kinds of aid coming their way: an army of lobbyists. That year, their forces in Washington included members of more than two dozen lobbying and public relations firms.

In praise of folly: Frente de Artistas del Borda Madness is not a personal fatality, it is an unheard of sensitivity "IndyWatch Feed War"

In the serene world of mental illness, modern man no longer communicates with the madman: on one hand, the man of reason delegates the physician to madness, thereby authorizing a relation only through the abstract universality of disease; on the other, the man of madness communicates with society only by the intermediary of an equally abstract reason which is order, physical and moral constraint, the anonymous pressure of the group, the requirements of conformity.

Michel Foucault, Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason

Originally published by Autonomies.

Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.

Since the 1980s, a group of artists, under the name of the Frente de Artistas del Hospital Jos Tiburcio Borda de Buenos Aires has struggled against the medicalisation and pathologisation of mad bodies, a process that has slowly or rapidly extended to the whole social body, potentially categorising all life as an illness.

The story of how neoliberalism, supported by the biologist turn that proposes diagnostic manuals, coaching sessions and self-help books, crossed by messages that promote the culture of the subject-entrepreneur, of sickness and at the same time, commercializes a cure . While the healthy succeed in business, the weak, to the extent that they are too sensitive or rare for the narrow limits of our normalized existence, are treated with increasingly aggressive drugs and less and less political therapies that pass on the guilt of discomfort to the lack of emotional skills or abilities, while hiding how job precariousness or structural violence in the financial system produces nothing but pain and misery. This is a supposedly universal story, located in the post-Fordist era, in the way in which the living conditions of the cognitariate is constituted as a global phenomenon. Applicable, therefore, also in non-Western contexts -like Argentina-, where reality is always ambiguous. In this sense, while in Spain the Transition meant, at least on paper, the closure of psychiatric hospitals actually privatized or left in...

UK - Letter "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Letter which appeared in the UK Doncaster newspaper The Starr Oct 2018 written by Cynthia Bagchi


Fluoride move is 'negligent'.

I am responding to the article in your newspaper recently on the possibility of fluoridating Doncaster's water supply. After 20 years of researching this topic I have learnt that
to put a chemical in the water that is not needed to make the water clean is unsound,
to put an unnecessary chemical in the water that is known , at small levels, to cause harm of any sort, to the function of the human body is negligent,
to put a toxic waste chemical/product from industry, that has never been tested for safety, at levels known to cause harm is willfully negligent.
Unfortunately this has happened in some countries and after over 60 years the harmful results are plain to see with data collected from two  countries, the USA and Ireland.  The citizens of these two fluoridated countries now have the poorest health and still have poor teeth.

Do the people of Doncaster really want this punishment when there are so many ways to improve oral health.

What We Can All Learn From The Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford Episode "IndyWatch Feed War"

The American political world has been on high alert these last several weeks as everyone, it seemed, became immersed in the ins and outs, highs and lows of the Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford controversy.

Image result for u.s. capitol, photos

Unfortunately, Americans have no Holy Oracle to go to to resolve such difficulties.  And our media, including social media, which is good at giving us lots of information and view points (often political propaganda), which is good for our animal and herd instincts, often cannot get us to the core problem troubling the intellect.

We offer this as a glimpse of light in an effort to find the potential core problem.

Every human being, from every part of earth, and in every era of history, has suffered some dreadful wrong, painful event, disease or hardship.  People on this planet have gone through poverty, drought, cancer, stroke, war, rape, assault, revolution and every other kind of hardship.

In just the last few days, the people of Indonesia experienced earthquake, tsunami and then a volcano eruption.

In each and every hardship, each human being is called to figure out what happened and what to do.

We happen to know many immigrants and refugees. Almost every one of them wants to get on with his or her life. They want jobs, families and the American Dream.

Among all the refugees and immigrants we know, not one has elected to return to Cuba, or Venezuela, or Honduras, or Vietnam, or China or Yemen, or Ukraine, or Poland or anywhere else and make a life built upon tearing down the government they hold responsible for their pain and suffering.

The want jobs, good lives, families and the American dream.

It just seems to us that wanting to lash out at a part of the human race is of almost no avail. Human beings cannot run their lives for long on hatred, anger, resentments and rage.

After World War II, even most Holocaust survivors wanted to get on with life, family and whatever prosperity they could muster. Usually, people who survive such ordeals have a deep sense of gratitude, often a sense of some Godly intervention in their unexpected salvation and deliverance.

Mans Search for Meaning is a 1946 book by Viktor Frankl which explains his personal response to the death camps and his life after.

Although there were Nazi hunters, who made it their duty to find and bring to justice certain people responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity, the mass of society is often ill suited to such work and they just want to get on with their lives.

The Nazis were deplorable,...

Boghossian, Lindsay, and Pluckrose are simply incompetent hacks "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

There are many reasons why that inane fake article study was bad. Heres a good summary from HJ.

But we also know bullshit gets published, with relatively little effort, in non-grievance studies journals. SCIgen is a program that automatically generates Computer Science papers. The authors were able to get one such paper accepted to a scientific conference in 2005. Eight years later, some researchers discovered that a whopping 120 SCIgen papers had been published across thirty conferences. That same year, John Bohannon submitted a paper on medicinal lichen that was machine translated from English to French and back again to 300 open-access journals; it was accepted in 157, and of the 36 submissions where peer reviewers caught the hoax a whopping 16 journals published the paper anyway. Not recent enough for you? While Boghossian and his two friends were toiling away on twenty papers, one person submitted an obvious hoax paper to fourteen biology journals; it got published in three journals and accepted in a further five.

Again, their core claim is that grievance studies journals are more prone to hoaxes than non-grievance studies journals. If we use my examples as controls, their hypothesis lacks sufficient evidence to be considered true; if we do not, then they dont have control group and their hypothesis lacks sufficient evidence to be considered true.

Boghossian, Pluckrose, Lindsay, and Mounk do not have the science knowledge of an alert High School student. They should be deeply ashamed and laughed out of academia, instead of rewarded with wingnut welfare.

They used the same hatchet science denialists employ to criticize everything from evolution to climate to physics to medicine: find a few deficiencies and that peer-review in general can be gamed is a recognized, ongoing problem and use them to pillory an entire field of study. And like the denialists, they focus on one thing they dont like, in this case feminism, and selectively criticize narrow, specific problems while generalizing to the whole. This is precisely the kind of game kooks play to claim that evolution is unsupported by evidence, that the earths climate isnt changing, that cigarettes arent really that bad for you, and that the AMA is hiding a secret cure for cancer.

I agree. All of them have demonstrated a sophomoric understanding of science and a weird ideological bias that taints everything they do, and theyve just earned a universal thumbs-down from academia.

Its the best of times and the worst of times for the advocates of national single payer health care in the United States.  So good because the vast majority in the US have embraced the concept of improving Medicare and expanding it to the entire population. So bad because corrupting influences threaten to steal the goal before we can get there. Lets take just one issuefor-profit hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care institutions.  Shall we allow the profit takers to remain in the new system, like the flawed Senate Medicare for All bill S 1804, does?

The Matrix Revealed: My interviews on space-time manipulation "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

by Jon Rappoport

October 5, 2018

In my collection, The Matrix Revealed, I include interviews with retired propaganda master, Ellis Medavoy, and another set of interviews with brilliant hypnotherapist Jack True.

The total of these 71 text interviews is 610 pages.

Jack and Ellis provide startling insights into how space and time are manipulated in the Matrix, in order to produce mind-control effects that go deeper than deep.

At the same time, understanding how time and space are engineered leads to breakthroughs and revelations about how the individual can liberate himself from this labyrinth.

In that sense, The Matrix Revealed is really about consciousness and its operationsin a shacked and limited condition, and freed from limitations.

Everything Ive written as a reporter for the past 34 years feeds into this exploration and discovery.

Eventually, all roads lead to mind control and mind freedom.

As a reporter, Ive always kept my eye on the goal: liberation of individual power.

Space and time are elastic. The illusion that they must be accepted as they appear to be creates a self-defeating structure. That structure can be cracked and nullified.

By the 1600s, London residents were already voicing concern over the pollution in their most famed river. Unfortunately, the matter was neither easily solved nor considered serious enough. So the publics concerns went unheeded, and dumping continued. By the 1800s, thanks to unfettered dumping and industrialization, the Thames was the most polluted river in the world. In 1855, celebrated scientist Michael Faraday took a boat down the Thames to assess the levels of pollution. The conclusion in his letter to The Times Newspaper called Observations on the Filth of the Thames says it all, and rings familiar alarm bells as we stand at our own modern-day environmental precipice.

My president? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

In case you dont like the sword-yanking and beer-catching, there is an alternative: god-anointing. Theres a new movie out titled The Trump Prophecy, in which the author claims that God spoke to him through his TV, announcing that Trump would be the next president.

The belief that Trumps election was Gods divine will is shared by others. Franklin Graham, the prominent conservative evangelical, said last year that Trumps victory was the result of divine intervention. I could sense going across the country that God was going to do something this year. And I believe that at this election, God showed up, he told the Washington Post.

Taylor has made other claims, which he calls prophetic words, including that Trump will serve two terms, the landmark supreme court ruling on abortion in the Roe v Wade case will be overturned, and that next months midterm elections will result in a red tsunami, strengthening Republican control of both houses of Congress.

Barack Obama will be charged with treason and Trump will authorise the arrest of thousands of corrupt officials, many of whom are part of a massive satanic paedophile ring. Trump will also force the release of cures for cancer and Alzheimers that are currently being withheld by the pharmaceutical industry.

Dont laugh at the idea of finding swords or snagging a thrown beer as strategies. There are much, much worse alternatives, and theyre literally being practiced. And are popular.

US DoJ indicted 7 Russian Intelligence officers for attacking Anti-Doping Organizations "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

US DoJ indicted seven defendants working for the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU), for hacking, wire fraud, identity theft, and money laundering.

The news of the day is that a US DoJ indicted seven defendants working for the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU), for hacking, wire fraud, identity theft, and money laundering.

The defendants are Aleksei Sergeyevich Morenets, Evgenii Mikhaylovich, Serebriakov, Ivan Sergeyevich Yermakov, Artem Andreyevich Malyshev, and Dmitriy Sergeyevich Badin, who work for the Military Unit 26165, and GRU officers Oleg Mikhaylovich Sotnikov and Alexey Valerevich Minin.

The hackers were involved in a cyber operation aimed at discrediting the international anti-doping organizations and officials that revealed athlete doping program sustained by Moscow.

The GRU officers hacked into the accounts of officials at the anti-doping organizations to steal confidential data and spread them to and delegitimize them.

According to prosecutors, defendants also attempted to spread the fake news on doping programs followed by athletes from other countries.

According to the indictment, beginning in or around December 2014 and continuing until at least May 2018, the conspiracy conducted persistent and sophisticated computer intrusions affecting U.S. persons, corporate entities, international organizations, and their respective employees located around the world, based on their strategic interest to the Russian government. reads the DoJ press release.

State-sponsored hacking and disinformation campaigns pose serious threats to our security and to our open society, but the Department of Justice is defending against them, said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Today we are indicting seven GRU officers for multiple felonies each, including the use of hacking to spread the personal information of hundreds of anti-doping officials and athletes as part of an effort to distract from Russias state-sponsored doping program. The defendants in this case allegedly targeted multiple Americans and American entities for hacking, from our national anti-doping agency to the Westinghouse Electric Company near Pittsburgh. We are determined to achieve justice in these cases and we will continue to protect the American people from hackers and disinformation.

Connecting Some Dots: Picture Books about Museums, White Privilege, and Brett Kavanaugh "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

I have an invitation to be interviewed for a podcast. I said yes, and went to that person's website to see what all they have been saying there about children's books. They'd been to the Eric Carle museum, and to the Seuss one, too. I saw they'd linked to other sites that have lists of picture books about museums.

I knew, before looking at any of the lists, that Bailey at the Museum would be on some of them. When that book came out, an AICL reader wrote to me about it because Harry Bliss (the author/illustrator) included Native content in the book. Most responses to my review are along the lines of 'it is for little kids' and so, the problems with the Native content don't matter. Response to Native critiques--of Halloween costumes that objectify Native women, or mascots that stereotype Native people--includes indignant 'grow up' and 'don't you have something better to do?'

Those responses are White Privilege in action. And, they are wrong. When people dismiss misrepresentations of Native people, they are inadvertently--and perhaps intentionally--saying it is ok to dehumanize anyone who is not like themselves. In that mindset, "those" people and their humanity don't matter.

There are consequences for that dismissal.

We're seeing those consequences, right now, in national politics as we wait to see if the US Senate is going to vote yes on Brett Kavanaugh.

The video of Orrin Hatch shooing women away, telling them to "grow up" is White Male Privilege, in action, but there are many White Women doing that very same thing. Here's Hatch:



His response to them is similar in tone and judgement to people who tell me and others who critique misrepresentations in children's and young adult books that our objections are misplaced. To them, children's books are harmless, and inconsequential. Critiques of them, they argue, can be ignored.

Of course, children's books do matter. They shape how readers think about the world. Critiques of misrepresentations of Native people are efforts to get everyone to see us as human beings.

Aside from a 1972 sensationalized book on pornography that two-time cabinet minister in the Harold Wilson government Lord Frank Longford authored, based on a just completed fact-finding mission with Jimmy Savile and Cliff Richard,[1] Lord Longford and Sir Jimmy also held in common another strange, obsessive fascination their creepily close friendships with arguably British historys worst serial killers Myra Hindley and her partner in crime Ian Brady.[2] Saviles close ties with Brady dating back to their killing spree were kept mostly on the low while Longfords public friendship with Hindley once she was behind bars included his humanitarian efforts to rescue her from state bondage that backfired with growing negative media coverage on both Longford and Hindley.[3] Unwittingly, Lord Longford singlehandedly torpedoed Myra Hindleys hope for parole, not that the coldblooded killer deserved it.

My king "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

I think this is an acceptable way to establish kingship.

Kennedy Bakircioglu, a midfielder for a Swedish football team Hammarby IF, scored a stunning 30-yard goal against Gothenburg earlier this weekbut its not the goal that will go down in history. After scoring the uncatchable free-kick goal, the 37-year-old veteran started a frenzied race with his teammates towards the corner flag. In the middle of all the excitement, and amidst flying toilet paper raining down on them, a fan standing in the bleachers decided to throw him a beer because, well, he deserved one, didnt he? Bakircioglu, totally unfazed by the foreign object hurtling towards him out of the stands, catches what appears to be a plastic pint of beer (that somehow didnt all spill en route) mid-air, goes all helan gr and downs it like a champ.

Were all going to have to learn how to pronounce Bakircioglu now.

Dam project pushes threatened orangutans from forest to farms "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

JAKARTA A planned hydroelectric dam that threatens the worlds most endangered great ape is already having an impact, days after a ringing endorsement from Indonesian officials and academics. On Sept. 17, the countrys Ministry of Environment and Forestry reported that preconstruction activity for the dam and power plant in northern Sumatra had driven a group of Tapanuli orangutans (Pongo tapanuliensis) out of their habitat in the Batang Toru forest. Ministry officials found three orangutan nests located near plantations in the area. They escaped to locals plantations, Wiratno, the ministrys director general for conservation, told Mongabay in Jakarta. So its already proven that the project has already dealt an impact. While theres no casualty yet, its an indication that the project must have had an impact [on the orangutans]. The ministry has since stationed guards to monitor the movement of the orangutans, a species described only last year but already teetering on the brink of extinction. The discovery comes less than a week after the Sept. 11 signing of a memorandum of understanding between the project developer, PT North Sumatra Hydro Energy (NSHE), and local government and university officials aimed at speeding up the development of the dam. Conservationists have warned the project will destroy more than a quarter of the only known habitat of the Tapanuli orangutan, among other risks that they outlined in a study earlier this year. However, thats not a view shared by the leadership of North Sumatra University, which has signed on to provide legal,

Eight-year-old girl discovers (pre-)Viking sword "IndyWatch Feed World"

This 4 October 2018 video says about itself:

Girl, 8, pulls a 1,500-year-old sword from a lake in Sweden.

It reminds me a bit of a Vietnamese legend; from Wikipedia:

According to the legend, in early 1428, Emperor L Li was boating on the lake when a Golden Turtle God (Kim Qui) surfaced and asked for his magic sword, Heavens Will. Li concluded that Kim Qui had come to reclaim the sword that its master, a local God, the Dragon King (Long Vng) had given Li some time earlier, during his revolt against Ming China. Later, Emperor Li gave the sword back to the turtle after he finished fighting off the Chinese. Emperor Li renamed the lake to commemorate this event, from its former name Luc Thuy meaning Green Water.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Girl (8) pulls 1500-years-old sword from lake

An 8-year-old girl has, in Sweden, recovered a 1500-year-old sword from a lake. While swimming on holiday in Jnkping, Saga Vanecek took the 85-centimeter weapon out of the mud.

I felt something in the water and pulled it up. When I saw a handle, I told my father it looked like a sword, Saga told the Swedish media. The find was extra special for the Swedish-American girl because she is a fan of the Vikings NFL [American football] team.

The Big Hack "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Bloomberg reports that Chinese spies managed to insert tiny microchips into motherboards used by servers around the world, including by Amazon, Apple, and the US Military, that allow them to manipulate those systems however they want:

The chips on Elemental servers were designed to be as inconspicuous as possible, according to one person who saw a detailed report prepared for Amazon by its third-party security contractor, as well as a second person who saw digital photos and X-ray images of the chips incorporated into a later report prepared by Amazons security team. Gray or off-white in color, they looked more like signal conditioning couplers, another common motherboard component, than microchips, and so they were unlikely to be detectable without specialized equipment. Depending on the board model, the chips varied slightly in size, suggesting that the attackers had supplied different factories with different batches.

Officials familiar with the investigation say the primary role of implants such as these is to open doors that other attackers can go through. Hardware attacks are about access, as one former senior official puts it. In simplified terms, the implants on Supermicro hardware manipulated the core operating instructions that tell the server what to do as data move across a motherboard, two people familiar with the chips operation say. This happened at a crucial moment, as small bits of the operating system were being stored in the boards temporary memory en route to the servers central processor, the CPU. The implant was placed on the board in a way that allowed it to effectively edit this information queue, injecting its own code or altering the order of the instructions the CPU was meant to follow. Deviously small changes could create disastrous effects.
If this is true so far as I can tell, none of it has been publicly acknowledged what an astonishing story.

Vaccine-sensible Japan has world's lowest child death rate and highest life expectancy "IndyWatch Feed World"

Fact: Japan has the lowest infant mortality rate following ban on mandatory vaccinations, they urge other countries to follow this firm stance The citizens of Japan are statistically proven to be the healthiest and longest-living people in the world. The country also has the lowest infant mortality rate on the planet. It may come as no surprise to many that the Japanese government banned a number of vaccines that are currently mandatory in the United States and has strict regulations in place for other Big Pharma drugs and vaccines in general. Japan's anti-vax policies have long been criticised by vaccine pushers in the US who claim that vaccinating the public "promotes health." However, Japanese people live longer, healthier lives than Americans, with babies born in the US twice as likely to die in infancy than those born in Japan.

James Comey and the Bush Torture Scandal "IndyWatch Feed World"

The vast regime of torture created by the Bush administration after the 9/11 attacks continues to haunt America. The political class and most of the media have never dealt honestly with the profound constitutional corruption that such practices inflicted. Instead, torture enablers are permitted to pirouette as heroic figures on the flimsiest evidence. Former FBI chief James Comey is the latest beneficiary of the media's "no fault" scoring on the torture scandal. In his media interviews for his new memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, Comey is portraying himself as a Boy Scout who sought only to do good things. But his record is far more damning than most Americans realize. Comey continues to use memos from his earlier government gigs to whitewash all of the abuses he sanctified.

Cyanobacteria Found Deep Underground "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Microbes Were Just Found in 'Dark Biosphere' Where They Shouldn't Exist

Thousands of feet below Earth's surface and far beyond the reach of sunlight, scientists recently discovered an unexpected form of life: microbes that typically produce their energy through photosynthesis.

Known as cyanobacteria, these hardy microorganisms have been around for billions of years, and though they're tiny, their photosynthesis prowess in which they use the sun's energy to turn carbon dioxide into food for growth played a big part in the planet's history. This activity helped shape a young Earth's oxygen-rich atmosphere, laying the groundwork for the emergence of all forms of life.

Today, cyanobacteria occupy a diverse range of environments, from baking deserts to oceans. But everywhere these organisms live, they typically get at least some exposure to sunlight. So, finding these creatures deep underground in total darkness was a big surprise, the researchers said.

In a prior expedition, the scientists had detected a rich subsurface ecosystem in the Iberian Pyrite Belt, an area along the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Spain with enormous reservoirs of sulfide deposits. The researchers performed their second investigation deeper underground, in a previously untouched location at the same site. There, they targeted rocks that they anticipated would contain microbes closely resembling surface bacteria. They did not, however, expect to find cyanobacteria at a depth of 2,011 feet (613 meters). In fact, cyanobacteria were the most abundant organisms in the researchers' samples, the team reported in a new study.

In Libya, EU Supports Returning Migrants to a War Zone "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

A month of chaos and death has revealed the risks of a European Union (EU) migration policy that pays Libyan militias to intercept migrants and bans humanitarian rescue ships from saving their lives in the Mediterranean.

Members of rival militias began fighting in the streets of Libyas capital, Tripoli, on August 26. Rockets and heavy artillery are hitting neighborhoods where migrants are held in detention. Doctors Without Borders (MSF), which treats migrants and refugees in Libya, has been calling for emergency evacuations since September 7.

Several detention centers in Tripoli are on front lines and thousands of desperate people are still trapped inside. There is a real risk of mass casualties as a result of indiscriminate shelling and artillery fire, warned Ibrahim Younis, MSFs head of mission in Libya.

The US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants says they could starve, die of disease, be shot, or become enslaved by militias or traffickers.

Many of the people huddled in detention had tried to reach Europe but were intercepted by the Libyan Coast Guard. Tens of thousands of people enter Libya each year hoping to make the short but dangerous sea voyage across the Mediterranean. The EU is paying the Libyan Coast Guard, notorious for links to armed militias and human traffickers, to intercept Europe-bound migrants an estimated 13,000 in the first eight months of this year and return them to be locked up in and around the Libyan capital.

So far in 2018, more than 1,700 people have died or gone missing while trying to reach Europe via the Mediterranean, mostly between Libya and Italy.

In the meantime, Italy and Malta have waged an intense campaign against humanitarian organizations (NGOs) that go to sea to rescue migrants. As a result, there are no more NGO boats operating in the central Mediterranean.

The EUs new strategy has been ruthlessly effective in reducing unwanted arrivals. August saw just 1,300 depart from Libya in an attempt to reach Europe by sea the lowest summer figure since 2012. Since January, Italy has experienced an...

Amazon's hourly workers get minimum wage increase, lose monthly bonuses and stock awards "IndyWatch Feed World"

Amazon's minimum-wage increase for its hourly workers comes with a trade-off: no more monthly bonuses and stock awards. Amazon confirmed in an email to CNBC that the company is getting rid of incentive pay and stock option awards as it increases the minimum wage to $15 per hour. The company, however, stressed that the wage increase "more than compensates" for the loss in other benefits. "The significant increase in hourly cash wages more than compensates for the phase out of incentive pay and [restrictive stock units]," Amazon's spokesperson said in an emailed statement. "We can confirm that all hourly Operations and Customer Service employees will see an increase in their total compensation as a result of this announcement. In addition, because it's no longer incentive-based, the compensation will be more immediate and predictable."

Fracking Protestors Jailed: British State Has Now Criminalized Peaceful Protests "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


Since when did peaceful environmental protests become a criminal act punishable by jail sentence? Answer: since 2018.
.
Last week, Simon Roscoe Blevins, 26, Richard Roberts, 36, and Rich Loizou, 31 (pictured above), were the first environmental protesters since 1932 to receive a jail sentence for a conscientious demonstration.
.
Not surprisingly, the Tory government who has been backing corrupt fracking firms in their drilling exploits for years now has kept quiet. However, some 200 academics have petitioned the legal bodies of the UK for a judicial review of absurdly harsh jail sentences for the three fracking protesters on Wednesday.
.
In their open letter, the academics state that the jail terms set a dangerous precedent.

The truth is, this issue threatens to topple the cornerstone of modern democracy. The state is openly attempting to crush the right to lawful protest, direct action in the pubic interest, and the freedom to assemble in public which may be why this story has been intentionally downplayed and ignored by openly corporatist mainstream publications like Rupert Murdochs Times of London, The Telegraph, Daily Mail and others, while barely given a mention by the BBC.
