Three police officers who kicked a woman to the ground and punched a man 20 times face investigation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



Three West Australian police officers have been put under investigation after a disturbing video of an arrest was played in court.

The officers, known as Hitchen, Richardson and Thompson, originally claimed a woman grabbed one of their guns during the confrontation.

However, shocking footage captured by a witness shows otherwise, with the officers seen kicking the woman to the ground and unleashing more than 20 punches on another man.

Jacqueline Briffa faced three charges of assaulting a police officer and attempting to possess a firearm, with all thrown out in court after the video was played, The West Australian reports.

The incident occurred in Hamilton Hill, south west of Perth, and was filmed by witness Elise Svanberg, who described the scene as 'awful'.

The magistrate called the allegations Ms Briffa had tried to remove one of the guns as 'frankly nonsense' before throwing the charges out.

Meanwhile, the man who was punched multiple times walked away with a $100 fine after being charged with obstructing police.

The officers pictured in the video have been placed under review, but have been allowed to remain on full duties.

Thug cops still working in NSW police "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



A toy dinosaur could end up costing NSW about $500,000 after police settled a claim they had bashed two men in Queanbeyan in 2013.

The two officers have been promoted, one having made detective, and remain on the force after NSW settled the claim without admission of liability in August.

Court-tendered documents alleged Rickey Caton and Adam Antram were beaten by then-senior constable Todd Finnigan and then-constable Patrick Hicks in December, 2013 after Mr Caton pointed a toy dinosaur at senior constable Finnigan.

According to the claim, the two officers then charged Mr Caton and Mr Antram with numerous offences, including assaulting an officer, in what is now known as "the dinosaur incident".

The case went ahead until a third officer who was present, constable Lucie Litchfield, testified in court to the contrary.

In total, the incident could cost NSW about $500,000. After police dropped the criminal charges against Mr Caton and Mr Antram in October 2015, they paid their $110,00 legal costs.

Their lawyer, Peter Bevan, expects the NSW government to pay over $300,000 in legal costs after a civil claim lodged by the men saw the police settle for $45,000 apiece with the two men in August this year.

An internal police investigation into the officers' actions that night concluded in June this year they had not acted improperly and no disciplinary action was taken.

The two officers have been promoted. According to unrelated court documents from September this year, Finnigan has been promoted to detective; another unrelated document from May shows Hicks is now a senior constable.

"Those two officers remain in the workplace with the full confidence of the commander," a NSW police spokeswoman said.

Ms Litchfield resigned from the force in 2015, then telling Fairfax Media she had been driven out. Ms Litchfield was contacted for comment for this article.

Mr Bevan has lodged a complaint to the NSW police watchdog, the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission, regarding the investigation's outcome.

A commission spokeswoman said they were reviewing the internal report. "Once the LECC has completed this review, further information will be sent directly to the complainant about the matter," the spokeswoman said.

Speaking for the first time since the settlement, ?Mr Caton and Mr Antram expressed frustration the two officers remained employed.  "It wasn't even about the money for me, I would have rather seen them lose their jobs," Mr Caton said.  "If it wasn't for Lucie we probably would be in jail."

According to court documents from the settled civil claim on December 21, 2013, police stopped Mr Caton, Mr Antram and two other friends on Morella Aven...

Milo Yiannopoulos promoters won't pay $50,000 Victoria Police bill "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



I can hardly believe how far left Victoria is veering: State police charging a conservative to protect him from Leftists. Charging protection money is what criminals do. The next step is refusing protection and letting harm happen. 

The whole rationale for government is that there are some things that should not be user-pays, but which the State should pay, like roads and infrastructure, defence, police, search and rescue, and emergency services, certain amenities ... etc. If the police don't think it is part of their job to prevent criminal assault, what are they good for?

The only consolation is that this is probably a try-on



THE ORGANISER behind controversial Milo Yiannopoulos' Melbourne event is refusing to cough up $50,000 to cover the cost of police after a violent protest broke out.

Penthouse publisher Damien Costas, the man who organised Milo Yiannopoulos's tour, told 3AW he had no intention of paying the five-figure bill from Victoria Police, following the Kensington clash.

I can't imagine we would (pay the larger bill)," he said. In Melbourne they were talking about a user pays model but a particular sergeant at our head of security we were dealing with said We'd like you to pay for the barriers, bollards etc'."

I think the entire thing was about five or $6000." I paid what I was asked to pay. Anything over and above that we can determine." This is actually asking the victim to pay the bill."

He said user-pay models were discussed in every state and he'd paid about $9000 for police in the Gold Coast and nothing in New South Wales.

Supporters of the far-Right figure were involved in violent clashes with left-wing protesters on Monday night in Kensington.
Hundreds of police were called in with some using capsicum spray to subdue rioters.

Mr Costas said the 3000 attendees didn't do anything wrong rather those uninvited threw rocks.

Police Minister Lisa Neville told the radio station on Wednesday the event's promoters would have to foot the bill, which would be at least $50,000. She said billing event organisers for police resources was commonplace.

For these sort of rallies, but also for the AFL and those big events there is an agreement around the costs," she said. Ms Neville said she was confident Mr Yiannopoulos would cough up.
(It's a) big call to say you're going to ignore a bill from Victoria Police," she said.

Mr Costas said the police presence was executed with military precision" and there were also 70 security guards at the event.

Hefty Yiannopoulos bill shows Victoria Police has taken sides with the Left "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



THE last group you'd expect to indulge in victim-blaming is Victoria Police. Our police force is meant to protect and serve, not fine victims of lawlessness for needing police protection.

That is essentially what happened last week when police command decided to send a hefty bill of at least $50,000 to the organisers of the Milo Yiannopoulos tour.

Not only does the decision set a dangerous precedent for free speech in Victoria, but it also reveals a perverse lack of fairness.

The enormous bill reflects the significant police resources that were needed last Monday night when feral mobs rioted for five hours in the streets of Kensington while trying to stop ticketholders from entering the Australian Pavilion.

Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane first threatened to fine the venue before it was determined that the organisers would foot the bill. Police Minister Lisa Neville said: For these sort of rallies, but also for the AFL and those big events, there is an agreement around the costs."

This attempt by the minister to compare the charges to what sporting bodies routinely pay is disingenuous nonsense.

A law-abiding crowd of 3000 attending a ticketed event would not require 300 police officers, including dozens in riot gear.

That came about purely because violent far-Left activists converged on the venue to try to shut down the event an all-too-regular occurrence in Victoria.  Not satisfied with hurling vile abuse, the protesters also threw rocks, sticks, bottles, and even street signs.

If it were the ticketholders rampaging, then I'd have no qualms about saddling the organisers with the bill.

However, the small number of police that would normally be needed, and paid for by organisers, at an event of this size ballooned to something entirely different thanks to the actions of extreme Left agitators.

Anyone who has seen footage of the mayhem would be surprised to learn that police arrested only two people that night.

Victoria Police may have created a rod for its own back by punishing the injured party and effectively rewarding the thuggish louts who want to use violence and intimidation to shut down events, meetings and rallies of their ideological opponents.

Today, the event organiser, Penthouse publisher and free speech advocate Damien Costas, spoke of his dismay over political grandstanding" in Victoria.

Our attendees did nothing wrong. They lined up quietly and looked on as the protesters that weren't invited and, frankly, weren't welcome, threw rocks and bottles at police," Costas told the Herald Sun.

We negotiated in good faith with the Victorian police and we reached an agreement as to what was required and what we....

Police face charges for 'leaving an overdosed teenager to die' - and he would have survived if they'd taken him to hospital "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



The Gold Coast cops have a very bad reputation

The death of a Gold Coast teenager from a drug overdose in 2015 could lead to charges against police officers who attended the scene.

Coroner Terry Ryan delivered his findings at Southport Courthouse on Thursday into the death of 19-year-old Charlie Robertson at his Miami apartment in June.

Mr Ryan found Mr Robertson's death was preventable and said police had 'acted inappropriately and incompetently' in their care for the young man.

Mr Robertson was unconscious in his bedroom when seven officers from the Gold Coast's Rapid Action Patrol raided the property, looking for one of his flatmates.

Despite being unable to wake Mr Robertson, the officers left without providing him with medical assistance despite the presence of paramedics at the property, the inquest heard.

The inquest found Mr Roberston would 'very likely' have survived had he received treatment.

'I consider that the attending police officers who witnessed Charlie's condition acted inappropriately and incompetently with respect to his presentation,' Mr Ryan said.

Mr Ryan added evidence given at the inquest that officers lifting a mattress the unconscious Mr Robertson was lying on was 'inappropriate' while laughter heard from officers when Mr Robertson fell from the mattress reflected 'very poorly' on the officers involved.

Mr Ryan said he will refer the matter to the Director of Public Prosecutions, meaning the officers could be potentially be charged for their actions.

Charlie's father Graham Robertson told reporters outside court the inquest had shown his son would be '100 per cent alive today' had police acted 'accordingly'.

The inquest heard at the time of Mr Robertson's death, frontline officers had not been trained in recognising signs of drug overdose but that this training has since taken place.

Another disgraceful Sydney cop "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



An off-duty Sydney police sergeant who was found guilty of using her rank and authority to avoid being randomly breath tested by a junior colleague has been jailed in a Sydney court.

Sarah Louise Johnston, 50, drove away from the RBT site without having been tested after a short conversation with the rookie officer at North Sydney on January 8, 2016.

She wept in the dock on Friday as Judge Christopher Hoy sentenced her to 16 months in jail with a non-parole period of 12 months.

'I consider the offender's conduct was disgraceful,' he said at the Downing Centre District Court.

The trial heard Johnston drank at least one schooner of beer while celebrating the new year with colleagues from North Sydney Police Station at two nearby pubs.

She was driving home to the Central Coast when she was pulled over at a random breath testing site on the Pacific Highway at Crows Nest.

Two junior officers conducting the RBTs - Constable Cameron Brooks and Constable Tugcan Sackesen - immediately recognised her.

Const Sackesen gave evidence at the trial that Johnston first pulled her car up alongside Const Brooks but rolled forward towards him before Const Brooks could breath test her.

'Hi sergeant, you've just been stopped for a random breath test,' Const Sackesen told her. He said she replied: 'You're not going to breath test me are you?' 'Yes sergeant I am,' he said.

She allegedly said: 'No because that would be a conflict of interest.' 'Imagine if I blew over, which I won't, because I'm not.' He said she told him it would put him in an 'awkward situation'.

On Friday Judge Hoy said the experienced and well regarded supervisor set a 'disgraceful example' that night. He said she 'brought shame upon herself... and to all honest members of the police force'.

'This is misconduct the community would expect honest and upstanding members of the police force... to abhor, resist and report,' he said.

Judge Hoy commended the two junior officers for courageously reporting her misconduct. Johnston will be eligible for release in December 2018.

Politically correct Victoria Police insist they DON'T have an African gang problem despite the blight of Apex, an officer being kicked in the face and 100 'South Sudanese' youths trashing an AirBnB "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



Victoria Police insist they don't have an African gang problem in Melbourne after an officer was kicked in the face at a shopping mall and 100 youths of Sudanese appearance trashed an AirBnB house.

The comments from Superintendent Therese Fitzgerald came after a boy kicked a police officer in the head as he crouched down attempting to arrest a 16-year-old youth for alleged shoplifting on Boxing Day.

The scuffle at Highpoint Shopping Centre, at Maribyrnong in Melbourne's west, was caught on CCTV on Tuesday afternoon.

However, Superintendent Fitzgerald said this latest incident involving African youths was not a sign there was an ethnically-related gang problem, amid a spate of crime linked to Apex gangs.

'We have problems with youth crime across the state and it's not a particular group of youths we are looking into. It's all youths. It's youth crime,' she told reporters.

Superintendent said 'youth crime in general' was to blame - a week after police were pelted with rocks after being called to an AirBnB house at Werribee, in Melbourne's west.

Officers were forced to retreat from the house, trashed inside by a party, when more than 100 youths of primarily South Sudanese appearance turned on them.

Photos taken from inside the house show walls kicked and punched in, mattresses thrown on top of furniture and pepper spray splattered across bedroom curtains.

Neighbours say they were left terrified when youths from the house started roaming the streets, throwing rocks and smashing cars.

Less than a week later, a police officer was kicked in the face as he crouched down trying to arrest a 16-year-old boy for alleged shoplifting at Highpoint Shopping Centre.

The scuffle, which was captured on CCTV, unfolded in front of shocked Boxing Day shoppers before the assailant ran from the centre into the car park.

The senior constable sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to hospital as the youth who assaulted him remained at large. 'It could have been a lot worse and I'm pleased to report he's returned to work today,' Superintendent Therese Fitzgerald told reporters on Wednesday. 'He's got bruising to his eye but is in very good spirits.'

A 16-year-old Flemington boy was arrested over the alleged theft but he was released pending further inquiries.

Police are wanting to speak to a teen who is described as African in appearance and was wearing a white top and black bandana.

In June, at nearby Footscray, a man was struck in the head with a tomahawk as a gang of 15 African youths burst into a barber shop and began rioting.

In April, a gang of five Sudanese teenagers allegedly bashed their autistic classmate, i...

Shock union claims: detective breaks silence on fraud scandal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



The retired detective who led the police investigation into the Australian Workers Union fraud scandal has broken his silence, calling for a fresh probe into an alleged conspiracy between former union officials and executives from construction giant Thiess that he claims extended to Julia Gillards old law firm.

In an extraordinary development in the long-running affair, former West Australian major fraud squad officer David McAlpine claims his investigation into the AWU slush fund 20 years ago was subverted due to political interference.

He said that in August 1998 the WA Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions had abruptly ordered him to remain in Perth as he was preparing to fly to Melbourne to execute search warrants on key players, including Ms Gillards then employer, law firm Slater & Gordon.

Mr McAlpine said he had retained key documents including letters, memos and telephone notes from his two-year investigation and he was willing to swear an affidavit and give evidence in any court about his knowledge of the $400,000-plus fraud. The fact that I was lied to and this investigation was subverted and people appear to have given false evidence at a royal commission, it needs to be reinvestigated because the simple fact is the Australian people need to know the truth, he said.

Mr McAlpine retired from WA Police in October 2016 after 42 years of service and is now living in Thailand.

In a written statement and audio recording sent to The Australian, Mr McAlpine claimed former Thiess senior executives might have misled the trade union royal commission in 2014 about alleged secret commissions paid to AWU officials Bruce Wilson and Ralph Blewitt.

Mr Wilson has admitted to extracting large sums of money from Thiess for a slush fund he set up in the early 1990s with legal assistance from Ms Gillard, who was his girlfriend at the time.

Money from the AWU Workplace Reform Association was used to partly fund the purchase of a house in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy in 1993. The association was supposed to promote training and safety on construction sites.

Royal commissioner Dyson Heydon recommended in 2015 that Mr Wilson and Mr Blewitt face prosecution for fraud-related offences connected to the fund.

Ms Gillard has repeatedly denied knowing the fund was to be used in a fraud.

The royal commission found that she had been casual and haphazard in her work at Slater & Gordon but had not committed offences, and was not aware of Mr Wilsons conduct.

Mr Heydon rejected Ms Gillards denials that she was the beneficiary of cash sums from Mr Wilson for house renovations. The commission found that the builder, Athol James, who recalled the wads of cash, and a union staffer, Way...

Former police officer found not guilty of misconduct after leaking footage "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



The vindictive prosecution of a whistleblower who should in fact have been praised casts a dark shadow over the reputation of the QPS.  It shows the police as having no morality at all.  They were furious that Flori revealed the ugly truth about them and desperately wanted to get back at him.

Now that their prosecution has failed, it is surely time to ask some very challenging questions of Ian Stewart, the Queensland police chief.

The prosecution was undoubtedly stressful for Flori -- as would have been intended -- but there was a silver lining to his dark cloud. After her own victory over a crooked cop and his QPS defenders, Renee Eaves has done a lot to help other innocent victims of the police. So she flew to Fiori's side when his prosecution was announced and has given him support ever since. And as well as a her strength of character and iron will, Renee is absolutely gorgeous. A former bikini beauty, she is a dream walking. Having her nearby would soothe most troubled male souls.

You see her walking beside Fiori below.  I had the great privilege to help her once when she badly needed it





A FORMER Queensland police sergeant who leaked footage of officers bashing a handcuffed man in a Gold Coast station basement has been found not guilty of misconduct.

Rick Flori, 47, was acquitted of the charge by a majority 11-1 verdict by a jury on Wednesday following a six-day trial at the Southport District Court.

Flori, who has since resigned from the Queensland Police Service, says he released the footage of the January 2012 arrest to cast a spotlight on illegal practices within the force.

Flori released footage of police at the Surfers Paradise station bashing a handcuffed man, Noa Begic, in a basement car park in January 2012.

Once the footage was run by The Courier-Mail, an internal investigation lead to a search of Floris home where the footage was located on an SD card.

Flori told investigators hed acquired the footage for training purposes and denied knowing anything about the email address used to arrange the leak with a journalist.

Crown prosecutor Todd Fuller said Flori was upset at being overlooked for a promotion to senior sergeant in 2011.

Once he realised the footage included the man who had been given the promotion at his expense, Senior Sergeant David Joachim, hed set about leaking it to discredit his rival, Mr Fuller argued.

Mr Fuller said in the email sent to the journalist, Flori failed to mention any of the other officers involved except for Sen Sgt Joachim, despite Senior Constable Ben Lamb being the man who kneed and punched...

Victoria police 'caught using and trafficking meth and ecstasy - as two officers joke over texts about going to work after a cocaine bender' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



No wonder they cannot control the African teenagers who aree running riot

Police partying on ice, cocaine and ecstasy would meet up with known traffickers, peddle drugs themselves and return positive tests, says an Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission special report.

The report takes in three investigations into claims of drug possession, trafficking and use by police since 2014 and says allegations against eight officers have been substantiated.

Operation Apsley revealed a group of police were using drugs regularly in their social lives - including one who used cocaine 'most days' for four months last year.

The officer, known as Senior Constable A, and a friend, Senior Constable B, used and trafficked drugs and were 'cavalier about the safety risks', the report says.

Both told IBAC they would not work if affected by drugs, but messages between them refuted these claims, including this exchange after a night out using cocaine:

Senior Constable A: 'Feeling slightly average but okay. Gonna be a long shift. Rad night.'

Senior Constable B: 'Kill me, I wanna lay down.'

Another senior constable messaged a civilian associate about putting MDMA powder into capsules - 'Now that you run a sophisticated drug syndicate you will be... essstremely bizzy' was the reply.

Two other IBAC operations also exposed regular drug use with one that focused on a constable leading to that officer's brother being arrested by federal and interstate police on drug offences.

While IBAC says allegations against eight were substantiated it says they were likely just 'snapshots of a more widespread and serious problem for Victoria Police'.

Of those eight officers, two were charged with giving false evidence, misleading or attempting to mislead IBAC, and inciting a witness to mislead IBAC, and one was charged with criminal drug offences.

One has been dismissed, three have resigned, three are suspended and one returned to work after an admonishment notice.

There are systemic deficiencies in Victoria Police's illicit drug prevention and detection, IBAC concludes.

'Police officers cannot be selective in choosing which criminal laws they will obey,' IBAC Commissioner Stephen O'Bryan QC said in a statement.

'While most of the police officers investigated were aware they were engaging in illegal conduct, they rationalised their off-duty criminality as being separate to their obligations as police officers.'

Victoria Police's alcohol and drugs policy says illicit drug use is not tolerated but there is ambiguity about the consequences, IBAC says.

Police have accepted the recommendations...

Paul Ryan's PAC Elected Conor Lamb?, 2104 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

- Nobel Gold: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://tinyurl.com/NobleGold Or Call - 877-646-5347 Good afternoon, Im still reporting on: Paul Ryan's PAC Elected Conor Lamb?, 2104 Synopsis: Poor President Trump. Its bad enough when the CCC has the entire hierarchy of the FBI and Justice Department working against you, but the leadership of the Republican Party as well? And this is still happening? According to a story by Waldo Crane in Big League Politics, the Congressional Leadership Fund, which, according to Wikipedia, is supposed to be a Super PAC dedicated to electing Republicans to the House of Representatives, spent big bucks trying to get the Democrat elected in Pennsylvania special election last week. The CLF was originally founded in 2011 and linked to John Boehner when he was House Speaker, but now it has become closely linked to Paul Ryan and his House Speakership. So , here is the physical evidence a bi-fold mailer that was sent out by bulk Mail to all registered voters of Pennsylvanias 18th Congressional District with the headline thank you Connor Lamb for opposing gun restrictions. Then, on the other side the headline is: Thank you Connor Lamb for supporting our Second Amendment rights. Huh??? Then, under that, the required sources of funding that paid for this bulk mailing, in this case, paid for by the Congressional Leadership Fund. But here is the thing, Ive been around guns since I was old enough to dress myself. I have never seen anyone who felt obligated to wear safety glasses to handle a rifle. Of course, it looks like a highly dangerous single-shot 22-caliber model, the kind you could buy in Walmart for just over $100. The very kind of weapon that year after year is the subject of the million-groundhog gun violence march on the nations capitol. I mean this highly dangerous firearm could at any time simply explode their faces, even when handled by a crack shot like their newly-minted Congressman, Conor Lamb. Please someone tell them this isnt paintball. I certainly hope that if I have to go out and defend my neighborhood from marauders someday that they have all been schooled in the use of safety glasses when handling a firearm.

Israeli forces attack Palestinian medics trying to save injured youth "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Video captured on Monday shows Israeli forces assaulting Palestinian medics in the central occupied West Bank city of al-Bireh as they were attempting to aid a Palestinian who had been shot during clashes in the area. The four paramedics, including one woman, were identified as Nisreen Amireh, Ayman Qurt, Attiyeh al-Dweik and Muhammad Omar. Witnesses told Ma'an that after the injured Palestinian, whose identity remained unknown, was shot, another youth attempted to help him, when Israeli soldiers attacked them, injuring both in attempts to detain them. The four paramedics who were on the scene as volunteers were beaten, pushed and allegedly threatened by soldiers of being shot and pepper-sprayed before Israeli soldiers opened live fire were in the air above their heads. Despite being beaten and pushed around, video of the assault shows the medics repeatedly attempting to rescue the injured youth. The three male paramedics were able to free one of the two youth and transfer him to a nearby ambulance, while Amireh, 19, remained behind, fighting off two soldiers in attempt to save the second youth.

`Of course not,' Emily replied very readily: `but that's because it stays the same year for such a long time together.'

`Which is just the case with mine,' said the Hatter.

Emily felt dreadfully puzzled. The Hatter's remark seemed to have no sort of meaning in it, and yet it was certainly English. `I don't quite understand you,' she said, as politely as she could.

After McCabe Firing, Trump Attacks FBI, and His Lawyer Says Russia Probe Must End
Washington Post

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on March 16, shortly before McCabe was set to retire. (Victoria Walker/The Washington Post)

By Philip Rucker, Matt Zapotosky and Carol D. Leonnig
March 17 at 6:59 PM

President Trump escalated his assault on federal law enforcement agencies Saturday while one of his attorneys argued that the controversial firing of a top FBI official was reason to end the Justice Department special counsels expansive Russia investigation.

After Attorney General Jeff Sessions acted late Friday night on Trumps publicly stated wishes to fire former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe just hours before he was set to retire with full benefits the president celebrated the ouster as a triumph that exposed tremendous leaking, lying and corruption throughout law enforcement.

The move emboldened McCabe, who said in a public statement that his dismissal was a deliberate effort to slander him and part of an ongoing war against the FBI and special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIs probe of Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

Like former FBI director James B. Comey, who was fired by Trump last year, McCabe kept contemporaneous memos detailing his fraught conversations with the president, according to two people familiar with the records. The danger for Trump is that those memos could help corroborate McCabes witness testimony and become damaging evidence in Muellers investigation of whether Trump has sought to obstruct justice.

Trump asked McCabe in an Oval Office meeting in May whom he voted for in the election and complained about the political donations McCabes wife received for her failed 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign. In addition, Comey confided to McCabe about his private conversations with Trump, including when the president asked for his loyalty. Both had been probing links between Trumps 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

McCabes firing coupled with the comments from Trump and his personal attorney, John Dowd on Saturday marked an extraordinary acceleration of the battle between the presi...

New eugenics? WaPo editor defends 'right' to selectively kill Down syndrome babies in the womb "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Washington Post deputy editorial page editor, Ruth Marcus, penned an op-ed yesterday defending the "right" to selectively kill babies inside the mother's womb who have been diagnosed with Down syndrome. The piece is filled superfluous nonsense that matters neither here, nor there in the main point of her argument. Marcus is not defending killing babies due to perceived disabilities, but rather asserting her belief that a woman should be able to kill the baby inside her womb at anytime and for whatever reason, without question. "There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable - and wrong," Marcus starts off. She then goes on to say that it's a difficult subject to write about because "there are so many parents who have - and cherish - a child with Down syndrome." Then, rather perversely, Marcus pauses to mention how cute the new Gerber baby is. "Many people with Down syndrome live happy and fulfilled lives. The new Gerber baby with Down syndrome is awfully cute."

Polish president compares EU membership to occupation: Foreign control, no sovereignty "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Polish President Andrzej Duda has likened Poland's membership of the European Union to the successive occupations of the country by Russia, Austria and Prussia. His nation which joined the EU in 2004, is the top beneficiary of funds from Brussels, netting some 10 billion a year (8.8 billion). But today the president said as during the years of occupation between 1795 and 1918, 'in faraway capitals, they make decisions for us - and in reality we are working on behalf of others.' Duda was speaking at an event in southwestern Poland marking 100 years since the country's sovereignty was restored following World War I. 'We have today a sovereign and independent Poland where I believe we will live better and better. Talk about it to your children.' To people who say the European Union is more important than Poland, Duda said 'everyone should remember the 123 years of partitions' when the country answered to occupying powers.

British police launch murder investigation into Russian businessman's death - murder suspected "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Police have confirmed that they are treating the death of Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov as murder. Glushkov, 68, was found dead at his London home this week. A post mortem revealed that Glushkov, an associate of the late-Putin critic and oligarch Boris Berezovsky, died from a compression to the neck. Police released a statement on Friday confirming that they have launched a murder investigation into Glushkov's death. "A murder investigation has been launched following the results of a post mortem into the death of 68-year-old Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov," London's Metropolitan Police said. The Met also says there is nothing to link the case to the attack on ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury on March 4. Police also said there is currently no evidence that Glushkov was poisoned.

Philly Antifa helps set the record straight on one of the biggest doxxers the Alt-Right has produced. To read the full, original article, go here.

As many of our readers are probably aware, in the aftermath of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA in August, there was a huge push among neo-Nazis, especially those associated with 8chans nazi-infested Pol board, to doxx and harass antifascists who participated in protesting the rally.

One nazi in particular, going by the alias Jack Pale Horse Corbin, was especially prolific in doxxing Anti-Racists and Anti-Fascists. Eager to unmask Pale Horse, antifascists within the TORCH network, as well as independent Antifa, rushed their research and made a critical error by falsely identifying Corbin as Jake Loubriel of Dania Beach, FL.

Daniel William McMahon, aka Jack Pale Horse Corbin, of Brandon FL

To be fair, not only is Loubriel a far-right racist Trump supporter, he has participated in doxxing Antifa, just not under the alias Jack Corbin.  Corbin stole pictures of Loubriel from social media and intentionally used them as a red herring to throw off Antifa.  This was an deliberate deception by Corbin; not an oversight by Antifa. Loubriel and Corbin are both living in Florida and have intersected on open carry and 2nd amendment pages.

Founder of Fan-Made Subtitle Site Lose Copyright Infringement Appeal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For millions of people around the world, subtitles are the only way to enjoy media in languages other than that in the original production. For the deaf and hard of hearing, they are absolutely essential.

Movie and TV show companies tend to be quiet good at providing subtitles eventually but in line with other restrictive practices associated with their industry, it can often mean a long wait for the consumer, particularly in overseas territories.

For this reason, fan-made subtitles have become somewhat of a cottage industry in recent years. Where companies fail to provide subtitles quickly enough, fans step in and create them by hand. This has led to the rise of a number of subtitling platforms, including the now widely recognized Undertexter.se in Sweden.

The platform had its roots back in 2003 but first hit the headlines in 2013 when Swedish police caused an uproar by raiding the site and seizing its servers.

The people who work on the site dont consider their own interpretation of dialog to be something illegal, especially when were handing out these interpretations for free, site founder Eugen Archy said at the time.

Vowing to never give up in the face of pressure from the authorities, anti-piracy outfit Rttighetsalliansen (Rights Alliance), and companies including Nordisk Film, Paramount, Universal, Sony and Warner, Archy said that the battle over what began as a high school project would continue.

No Hollywood, you played the wrong card here. We will never give up, we live in a free country and Swedish people have every right to publish their own interpretations of a movie or TV show, he said.

It took four more years but in 2017 the Undertexter founder was prosecuted for distributing copyright-infringing subtitles while facing a potential prison sentence.

Things didnt go well and last September the Attunda District Court found him guilty and sentenced the then 32-year-old operator to probation. In addition, he was told to pay 217,000 Swedish krona ($26,400) to be taken from advertising and donation revenues collected through the site.

Eugen Archy took the case to appeal, arguing that the Svea Hovrtt (Svea Court of Appeal) should acquit him of all the charges and dismiss or at least reduce the amount he was ordered to pay by the lower court. Needless to say, this was challenged by the prosecution.

On appeal, Archy agreed that he was the person behind Undertexter but disputed that the subtitle files uploaded to his site infringed on the plaintiffs copyrights, arguing they w...

At the entrance of the Vatican underground vault there are moving and sliding panels of what looks like plexi glass but it is a type of other material not built from glass, these panels act as holographic data storage servers housing digitized collections from the whole of the Library of Alexandria, Sumarian Tablets, and other ancient library holdings from libraries that had been destroyed.

How a Norwegian Comment Section Turned Chaos into Orderwith a Simple Quiz "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The five-person team behind a simple WordPress plugin, which took three hours to code, never expected to receive worldwide attention as a result. But NRKbeta, the tech-testing group at Norway's largest national media organization, tapped into a meaty vein with the unveiling of last February's Know2Comment, an open source plugin that can attach to any WordPress site's comment section.

"It was a basic idea," NRKbeta developer Stle Grut told a South By Southwest crowd on Tuesday. "Readers had to prove they read a story before they were able to comment on it."

[...] NRKbeta took its own advice when a staffer's 2016 article about "pictures of young girls shared on a 'boys forum'" exploded with "shouting and poor discussion" in the comment section. These posts came from readers who don't traditionally visit the NRK's tech-specific subsite, Grut noticed, and his team members decided to write about the rare eruption by asking readers, "What can you learn from meeting the comments section from hell?"

Commenters offered a variety of ideas, which included everything from comment voting to more active moderation. The staff mulled over what they could implement that would be low cost and low impact to its community, and Grut had his own eureka moment while showering before biking to the office: why not a quiz? A WordPress plugin could force users to correctly answer a few multiple-choice questions before the page's comment field would appear. Once he got to the office, he and fellow staffers spent three hours building the plugin, which Grut reminded the crowd is wholly open source.

Policing tactics, detendions of the Chinese Communist Party have only a veneer of legal legitimacy, Human Rights Watch says "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP-JIJI, AP

  • MAR 18, 2018

Millions of Chinese public sector workers will be exposed to the harsh policing tactics of the Communist Party as President Xi Jinping brings his corruption crackdown to Chinas sprawling bureaucracy.

The campaign to clean up the partys pervasive corruption has arguably been Xis most popular initiative, pressuring its 89 million members to toe the line with more than 1.5 million officials punished in the past five years.

Legislators are finalizing the creation of a new anti-graft apparatus that will also watch over non-party members everyone from managers at state-owned companies to people in administrative roles at schools and hospitals.

In Beijing alone, one of the areas where the new system was established on a pilot basis, the number of people under scrutiny quadrupled to 1 million, or about 5 percent of the citys population, officials said.

New national and local supervision commissions investigative agencies focused on corruption will operate alongside the Communist Partys Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), sharing offices, personnel and perhaps leadership.

Image result for Justice, with scales, blindfold slipping, photos

Further blurring the line between the state and party bodies, the National Peoples Congress (NPC) on Sunday named CCDI Deputy Secretary Yang Xiaodu as head of the National Supervision Commission.

The anti-corruption powers are dispersed, explained one party leader during the NPC, saying the new body will harness and unify anti-graft efforts.

The congress also appointed Premier Li Keqiang, the No. 2 leader of the Communist Party, to a second five-year term Sunday. The premier traditionally is Chinas top economic official but Xi has stripped Li of many of the posts most prominent duties by appointing himself to lead party bodies that oversee economic reform and state industry.

Rights groups worry the new body will institutionalize some of the problems that have led to abuses and even torture of suspects, while vastly expanding the number of people under its purview.

The system has a veneer of legal legitimacy, said Maya Wang, China researcher at Human Rights Watch (HRW), without any meaningful improvements to guarantee due process.

Putin congratulates Xi on election "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Russian President Vladimir Putin was the first to congratulate Xi [PPIO]

Chinese President Xi Jinping was re-elected as the countrys leader by unanimous vote during the 13th National Party Congress on Saturday.

He was also selected as the chairman of the Central Military Commission.

This election, which appears to have no term limit, effectively makes Xi the most powerful political player in China.

Russian President Vladimir Putin quickly called to congratulate Xi.

This decision made by the National Peoples Congress once again proves your high prestige, and represents a recognition of Your contribution to promoting Chinas rapid economic and social development and safeguarding Chinas national interests on the global stage, Putin was quoted by TASS as saying.

Citing new global conditions coupled with the partys committment to develop socialism the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in late February said that it was necessary that constitutional term limits on the presidency be lifted.

The CPC Central Committee wants to revisit the paragraph which states:
The term of office of the President and Vice-President of the Peoples Republic of China is the same as that of the National Peoples Congress, and they shall serve no more than two consecutive terms.

The Central Committee says that this change is necessary because the leadership of the Communist Party of China is the defining feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

The Central Committee also proposed writing Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era into the national constitution alongside the schools of thought of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping.

On Saturday, Xi made a public oath of allegiance to the Constitution in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

Montreal: Two Queen Victoria Statues Vandalized with Green Paint "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post Montreal: Two Queen Victoria Statues Vandalized with Green Paint appeared first on It's Going Down.

The following anonymous communique is re-posted from the counter-information website, Montreal Counter-Info.

March 15, 2018, Montreal Two landmark statues to Queen Victoria in Montreal were vandalized last night, a few days before St. Patricks Day. Both the Victoria Memorial in downtown Montreal as well the bronze statue on Sherbrooke Street at McGill University were both covered in green paint. The statues were unveiled in 1872 and 1900 respectively, more than a century ago.

The presence of these racist statues in Montreal are an insult to the self-determination and resistance struggles of oppressed peoples worldwide, including Indigenous nations in North America (Turtle Island) and Oceania, as well as the peoples of Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, the Indian subcontinent, and everywhere the British Empire committed its atrocities.

The statues are also an insult to the legacy of revolt by Irish freedom fighters, and anti-colonial mutineers of British origin. The statues particularly deserve no public space in Quebec, where the Qubecois were denigrated and marginalized by British racists acting in the name of the putrid monarchy represented by Queen Victoria.

Queen Victorias reign, which continues to be whitewashed in history books and in popular media, represented a massive expansion of the barbaric British Empire. Collectively her reign represents a criminal legacy of genocide, mass murder, torture, massacres, terror, forced famines, concentration camps, theft, cultural denigration, racism, and white supremacy. That legacy should be denounced and attacked.

We are motivated and inspired by movements worldwide that have targeted colonial and racist statues for vandalism and removal: Cornwallis in Halifax, John A. Macdonald in Kingston, the Rhodes Must Fall movement in South Africa, the resistance to racist Confederate monuments in the USA, and more. We are also inspired by the recent action in Montreal, in November 2017, against the John A. Macdonald Monument (background: http://bit.ly/2DtJgcd; video: http://bit.ly/2pdPA2s).

Our action is a simple expression of anti-colonial and anti-imperialist solidarity, and we encourage others to undertake similar actions against racist monuments and symbols that should be in museums, not taking up our shared public spaces.

Russia-linked Sofacy APT targets an unnamed European Government agency "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

While US-CERT warns of cyber attacks against critical infrastructure in the energy sectors, Russia-linked Sofacy APT is targeting a government agency in Europe.

Last week the US Government announced sanctions against five Russian entities and 19 individuals, including the FSB, the military intelligence agency GRU.

Despite the sanctions, Russian hackers continue to target entities worldwide, including US organizations.

The Russian spy agencies and the individuals are accused of trying to influence the 2016 presidential election and launching massive NotPetya ransomware campaign and other attacks on businesses in the energy industry.

Last year, the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a joint technical alert to warn of attacks on US critical infrastructure powered by Russian threat actors. The US-CERT blamed the APT group tracked as Dragonfly, Crouching Yeti, and Energetic Bear.

The Staggering Death Toll in Iraq
by Medea Benjamin, Nicolas J. S. Davies 

"March 19 marks 15 years since the U.S.-UK invasion of Iraq in 2003, and the American people have no idea of the enormity of the calamity the invasion unleashed. The U.S. military has refused to keep a tally of Iraqi deaths. General Tommy Franks, the man in charge of the initial invasion, bluntly told reporters, We dont do body counts. One survey found that most Americans thought Iraqi deaths were in the tens of thousands. But our calculations, using the best information available, show a catastrophic estimate of 2.4 million Iraqi deaths since the 2003 invasion.

Antifascist Organizing Combats Rise in California Racist Attacks "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post Antifascist Organizing Combats Rise in California Racist Attacks appeared first on It's Going Down.

This expose from Northern California Anti-Racist Action, which was recently labeled an anarchist extremist group by the nearby Fusion Center, chronicles the rise in white supremacist hate crimes, which has led to the need for increased antifascist organizing.

As mainstream media coverage of the anti-fascist struggle has skyrocketed over the last year, weve noticed that questions surrounding it have largely been confined to concern over a narrowly defined free speech. This has been accompanied by numerous, sometimes deliberate, misrepresentations. While narratives of violence have tended to be over-represented in accounts of anti-fascist and anti-racist organizing, reporting on the alt-right has been the opposite, downplaying the violence inherent to the recently re-energized white nationalist movement. Because clashes in Northern California between anti-fascists and white supremacists have captured so much media attention over the last year, we feel it necessary to place these incidents within their proper context.

Despite the fact that California is widely seen as a bastion of liberalism and tolerance, the state is in fact home to more active hate groups than any other in the country. FBI numbers indicate that reported hate crimes in California increased 11.2% from 2015 to 2016. The East Bay Express noted that Northern California cities consistently rank high on the FBIs list, with San Leandro and Berkeley seeing a particularly notable spike during 2016. This has prompted UC Berkeleys student paper, the Daily Californian, to join ProPublicas Documenting Hate project in recording local incidents in Berkeley. Acts of racist vandalism were reported in the East Bay throughout 2017, and acts of anti-Semitism occurred in Alameda and public schools throughout the greater Bay Area. Similar evidence of growing far-right hatred and violence has been observed throughout the Central Valley. This mirrors....

Somebodys Up There Sittin in a Tree on Peters Mountain "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Tree sitting in Monroe County mountains is cold and lonely

A Look at the Ongoing Pipeline Protest on the VA & WV Border

From an Article by Nancy Andrews, West Virginia Public Broadcasting, March 16, 2018

Since late February, a small group of people have been quietly perched in two trees atop Peters Mountain in Monroe County. They are so remote, few have seen or heard directly from the protesters, but still theres plenty of people noticing.

Its not known exactly who or how many people are in the trees, protesting a planned pipeline in the area. Two trees have wooden platforms suspended by ropes and covered in plastic. They creak in the wind. Five-gallon plastic buckets and some bottles dangle on the sides. Signs, made from sheets hanging down like sails from the tree limbs, state Water is our Future, Stop MVP, and Fight back against frack pipelines.

A notice from the Mountain Valley Pipeline is taped to the trunk of one tree. It claims the right to cut trees and build a pipeline and notifies the sitters that court papers have been filed. Two people are named on the notice, along with John Does 1-5. An injunction against the protesters is expected once Mountain Valley Pipeline files some additional documents with the court. Judge Robert Irons ordered another hearing on Tuesday, March 20th.

Only a lone attorney, William DePaulo, showed up in Monroe County Court earlier this week for the first hearing related to their cause. DePaulo said its a First Amendment issue. The tree is simply the megaphone, he said.

Mountain Valleys 42-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline was approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in October. The route starts in northern West Virginia and travels 303 miles to connect with the Transcontinental Pipeline in Virginia.

FERC has issued whats known as a tolling order that allows for pipeline construction to continue even though there are multiple lawsuits and appeals questioning the legality, construction practices and purpose of the project.

Meanwhile, in Monroe County trees are being cut creating 125-foot wide path up Peters Mountain stopping just short of the tree-sitters. The tree-sitters declined to be interviewed for this....

SYDNEY (AFP)  Myanmars de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi was pressed about the Rohingya crisis at an ASEAN summit in Sydney Sunday, but the regional bloc stressed it could not intervene and force an outcome.

Suu Kyi has been under intense global criticism for her public silence amid a brutal military crackdown that has forced nearly 700,000 of the Muslim-minority Rohingya to flee Myanmars Rakhine state for Bangladesh.

The humanitarian crisis was one of the key topics at a three-day special summit between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Australia.

We discussed the situation in Rakhine state at considerable length today, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said at the closing press conference.

Aung San Suu Kyi addressed the matter comprehensively, at some considerable length herself.

Its certainly an issue that has been discussed and it is fair to say very constructively, in our meeting.

Singapores Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who is this years ASEAN chair, said Myanmars neighbours were concerned about the ongoing situation but could not force an outcome.

It is of concern for all ASEAN countries, and yet ASEAN is not able to intervene and to force an outcome, Lee said alongside Turnbull.

Both leaders said they would back efforts to reach a long-term solution to end the crisis, and were supporting humanitarian efforts to help those displaced.

But the exodus has sparked rare tension within the association, and Muslim-majority Malaysia has called for an independent ASEAN-led investigation into allega...

Sunday Sermonette "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It's difficult to live life without picking up 'baggage' - and I don't necessarily mean that in a bad way. It depends on what the baggage is and on what we do about it. The worst is the baggage that we don't know about, because that's almost always problematic.

Our ethics, what we value (and by extension our metaphysics and epistemology) are revealed by our aesthetics. Think about what movies, TV shows, books, stories, blogs, or news articles you like to consume. The kinds of entertainment we like, or the fictional characters we identify with, act as a litmus test for our ethics.

What art is hanging on your wall? Is it realistic, like photographs, or hyper realistic paintings? Or is it abstract? What is the subject matter? All these things can reveal how you fundamentally view the world, and how you think about knowing the universe.

Just as asking about how one views consciousness will reveal their metaphysics, what one surrounds themselves with, or their aesthetics, reveals their ethics, and ethics is codependent on their metaphysics and epistemology.

We surround ourselves with what we find comfortable, reassuring, and by being invited into the home of a stranger and looking at those things, we can come closer to being brought up to speed than in any other way.

I visited a friend the other day who is in early stage alzheimer's. He knows what will kill him unless he wanders under a moving bus first. The walls were bare, the furniture minimalist. Nothing remained of what had been since he and his wife sold everything and moved into a small, but clean and neat apartment.

Lets Defend Free Radios Against the Legal and Repressive Force of the State "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post Lets Defend Free Radios Against the Legal and Repressive Force of the State appeared first on It's Going Down.

The following editorial comes from Mexico, and discusses the clamp down on pirate and autonomous radio stations.

Like the water and land, they also want to turn the air into a commodity. Since 2006, with the reform to the law of telecommunications, we have cautioned of the increasing privatization of radio in Mexico, whose majority of AM and FM stations pertain to the 23 private radiophonic groups.

After the directors of the Federal Institute of Telecommunications (IFT) announced in 2016 that they would quickly license six frequencies in Mexico City, the dispossession of free radios began the following year. In August of 2017, this institute sold the frequency 105.3 FM to the businessman Eduardo Henkel where our fellow collective Regeneracin Radio transmitted in the city. As such, for 2018 the possibility remains open that the IFT could sell the frequencies of free radios in Mexico City.

Combined with this, in October of 2017, a change was made to the Penal Code and the Federal Law of Telecommunications imposing punishment of 2-5 years in jail, economic sanctions of a fine of up to 300 days and the decommission of equipment to those who operate stations without having the concession authorized by the state. Different actors have questioned this project, including AMARC-Mexico, the representative in Mexico of the High Commissioner of Human Rights of the United Nations, the organization Article 19 and various centers of human rights defense.

Currently, the legislative project continues without approval, but the decommissions, interferences and illegal actions continue operating against free radios, as we previously denounced. The plan that the capitalists and their servants have in order to silence the voice of community and free radios is to deliver the frequencies to private businessman and repress those who exercise communication.

This includes the radios with social projects, struggling to obtain a community concession, who must fulfill the technical requirements imposed by the IFT that in their document IFT-002-2016 list a series of specifications and requirements that would require the investment of up to 700,000 pesos in equipment. In addition, they have imposed political content and obstructed the possibility of obtaining commercial financing. With this, the tendency of privatization of the media is reinforced so as to only be used by businessmen and speculators of the radio spectrum.

The blows to freedom of expression not only affec...

During a phone call on Saturday German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to discuss solutions to global steel overcapacity. 

Merkel and Xi emphasized the importance of close and multilateral cooperation in international trade, according to German government spokesman Steffan Seibert.

He added that the two leaders  also congratulated each other on their re-elections  and called for a deepening of their countries strategic partnership.

Merkel invited Xis government to visit Berlin for consultation, while Xi invited Merkel to visit China. No details about whether the visits would take place has been released.

State news agency Xinhua said Xi told Merkel that the two countries should become advocates for a new-type of international relations and cooperate as partners despite their ideological differences.

On Saint Patricks Day, 2018, a group of ten people held an agitational demonstration outside of the new Amazon Flex distribution center (DSE2) in the Georgetown district of Seattle. This facility is located along an industrial waterway in a nondescript logistics terminal called the Seattle Distribution Center. Amazon rents out the front half of one of their long buildings and has filled it with their own high-tech sorting equipment. DES2 is just a small glimpse of the nightmarish future Amazon has in store for the world.

Our small group stood at the main entrance of this facility with two banners that read NEVER TRUST MANAGEMENT and MAKE AMAZON PAY. Members of the IWW brought union pamphlets and contact-lists sign-ups for employees coming in and out of the warehouse. Prior to the action, the surrounding neighborhood had been covered in posters (link to PDF) that announced the upcoming strike at an Amazon facility outside Madrid. For two weeks, workers at DSE2 saw the bold words AMAZON WORKERS STRIKE IN MADRD on every telephone pole and electrical box. Most of these posters were still up at the time of our action.

#Elections2018: Female Candidates on Lebanons Major Political Parties Lists "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A record number of female candidates (111) have signed up for the upcoming 2018 elections, but it remains to be seen how many will succeed. Knowing that the new electoral law favors the ruling political parties (since they came up with it), I was interested to see how many female candidates will be included on their lists.

For that purpose, I looked up the official electoral lists announced by the Lebanese Forces, Kataeb, Future Movement, PSP (Jumblatt), Amal & Hezbollah and found out that out of 158 candidates, only 9 were women, which is less than 6%.

Heres the full list:

Lebanese Forces: 19 candidates, 1 woman. [Source]
Hezbollah: 13 candidates, 0 women [Source]
Amal: 16 candidates, 1 woman
Kataeb: 17 candidates, 2 women [Source]
Tayyar: 46 candidates, 2 women [Source]
Future Movement: 37 candidates, 4 women [Source]
PSP(Jumblatt): 10 candidates, 0 women

In terms of percentages:

Lebanese Forces*: 5%
Hezbollah: 0%
Amal: 6%
Kataeb: 11%
Tayyar: 4%
Future Movement: 11%
PSP(Jumblatt): 0%

Regenerating new heart tissue to repair disease "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Scientists are developing heart patches for adults as well. For example, biomedical engineers at Duke University have created a fully functioning lab-grown human heart muscle large enough to patch over the damage typically suffered in a heart attack.

While Dukes heart patches are still in their early stages, they appear to be a tremendous improvement over existing cell therapies. Clinical trials are currently testing the tactic of injecting stem cells directly into the affected site in an attempt to restore some of the damaged heart muscle. However, it doesnt help very much. Fewer than 1% of the injected cells survive in the heart, and even fewer become cardiac muscle cells.

On the other hand, heart patches could potentially be implanted over the dead heart muscle and remain active for a long time, strengthening contractions and providing a conductive circuit for the hearts electrical signals to travel through. These patches also secrete growth factors and enzymes that could help the recovery of damaged tissue that hasnt yet died.

The Russian military says that more than 20,000 people fled the fighting between Syrian government forces and Islamist rebels in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus on Sunday.

The civilians have been using humanitarian corridors agreed to by the Russians and Syrians for the past two weeks, but the numbers sometimes slow to a trickle leaving the city amid air strikes and shelling.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said air raids on the Eastern Ghouta district of Zamalka killed 30 people who were about make use of the humanitarian corridor.

The Russian military says it only targets Islamist rebels who control Eastern Ghouta.

Ghouta has been demarcated into three zones currently under fire from a Syrian government land operation.

In the meantime, Staffan de Mistura, the UN Special Envoy for Syria, told the Security Council that the Russian military was able to broker a ceasefire with a number of Islamist rebels under the banner of Jaish Al Islam in the district of Douma only.

Douma is one of the three zones facing a land offensive from the Syrian Army.

He said that the UN was trying to persuade the militants holed up in the other two zones to also implement a ceasefire to allow civilians to leave.

Our rapid assessments of damages and needs have shown that a significant number of villages experienced food insecurity with gardens destroyed, water supplies contaminated by sedimentation and debris from the quake, homes and infrastructure, including roads, and health facilities have been damaged or destroyed, Managing Director Peter Botten said.

Mr Botten said he company then mobilised aid efforts out of its Moro Camp and established an emergency relief coordination centre.

Within this centre, we have a team of people who receive supplies of food, water, shelter, and medicine received from a range of donors and ensure these are properly packed according to the international emergency guidelines, ready for distribution, Mr Botten said.

He said that as of March 13, Oil Search helicopters have made over 86 village drop offs, moving over 70 tonnes of material to Moro and delivered almost all of that already to our communities. Over 10 tonnes of medical supplies have been delivered to health facilities across Hela, Southern Highlands and parts of Western and Gulf Provinces.

The company has treated more than 80 people and medevacked seven patients to Port Moresby, five to Mendi and Tari hospital each.

Boko Haram kills 5 fishermen in Borno, Nigeria Jihadists against fishermen? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP

Suspected Boko Haram jihadists killed five fishermen on a remote island in northeastern Nigeria for aiding the search for dozens of schoolgirls kidnapped last month by the jihadists, a local official said Saturday.

Five men who went fishing near the border with Chad were shot dead, said Abubakar Gamandi, president of the fisheries union in Borno state, where the killings occurred.

He said the attack happened on Tudun Umbrella island in Lake Chad, which borders Nigeria, Chad and Cameroon.

Members of the militant Islamist group stormed the Government Girls Science and Technical College in Dapchi, Yobe state, in February, taking 110 girls with them as they fled.

Girls at the school in Dapchi in the northeastern state of Yobe, where dozens of school girls went missing after an attack on the village by Boko Haram.

The Dapchi kidnapping rekindled painful memories of a similar mass abduction by Boko Haram four years ago, when more than 200 schoolgirls were taken from Chibok in an act that shocked the world.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari called the February 19 abduction a national disaster and a widespread hunt for the girls is under way.

Gamandi said the fishermen were killed because they were assisting the military in the search.

Fishermen have been assisting the military in the operation to locate the schoolgirls because we know the terrain well, he told AFP.

Boko Haram have repeatedly attacked fishermen in the border region around Lake Chad in recent years.

Nigerias battle against the extremist group in northeastern regions has left more than 20,000 people dead and forced more than 1.5 million to flee their homes since 2009.

Speaking the Same Language as a Wireless Thermometer "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Temperature is a delicate thing. Our bodies have acclimated to a tight comfort band, so it is no wonder that we want to measure and control it accurately. Plus, heating and cooling are expensive. Measuring a single point in a dwelling may not be enough, especially if there are multiple controlled environments like a terrarium, pet enclosure, food storage, or just the garage in case the car needs to warm up. [Tim Leland] wanted to monitor commercially available sensors in several rooms of his house to track and send alerts.

The sensors of choice in this project are weather resistant and linked in his project page. Instead of connecting them to a black box, they are linked to a Raspberry Pi so your elaborate home automation schemes can commence. [Tim] learned how to speak the thermometers language from [Ray] who posted about it a few years ago.

The system worked well, but range from the receiver was only 10 feet. Thanks to some suggestions from his comments section, [Tim] switched the original 433MHz receiver for a superheterodyne version. Now the sensors can be a hundred feet from the hub. The upgraded receiver is also linked on his page.

Greece was strangled by the creditors in 2015. We stand with Yanis Varoufakis and with the truth. Professors Jeff Sachs (Columbia) and James K. Galbraith (Texas) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Thomas Wiesers claim that Yanis Varoufakis and the Greek government of 2015 cost their economy 200 billion euros is ludicrous. As Wieser knows because he was one of the architects of the policy the Greek economy in 2015 was strangled by its creditors. The creditors inflicted severe damage from the first day: by undermining liquidity of the bank system, refusing to restructure the debt, insisting on harsh austerity, and most importantly and blatantly, refusing to negotiate or even brainstorm in good faith. The creditors measures were highly destructive for Greece, as even former German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schuble admitted.  Schuble told Varoufakis that, were their positions reversed, he would not sign!  The creditors terms were not aimed to help Greece at all.

We stand with Yanis Varoufakis and with the truth. We know that the Greek people have the wisdom to do the same.

Did the Israels Mossad kill a Russian general for peddling deadly nerve agent Novichok to Syria? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Report suggests Israel was deeply concerned that Anatoly Kuntsevich, one of the men behind Novichok, was working with Damascus, and repeatedly warned Moscow, but to no avail

A Soviet general behind the development of a deadly nerve agent suspected of being used in a poisoning attack last week in the UK had raised concerns in Israel in the 1990s. The Jewish state was worried that he was trying to sell his knowledge to Syria, and he later died in mysterious circumstances, according to a report published Friday.

The general, Anatoly Kuntsevich, described as a leading chemical weapons expert, had led the development of a highly potent Soviet-designed nerve agent called Novichok, which Britain says was used on former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter on March 4.

Amid the collapse of the Soviet Union, Kuntsevich began trying to sell his knowledge to the Syrians, according a report in the Ynet news site by Israeli journalist and author Ronen Bergman, whose Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israels Targeted Assassinations, was published earlier this year.

It would seem that his business with the Syrians was not a government initiative but rather an attempt by him to look after his own interests, Bergman wrote, saying that Kuntsevich received huge sums of money.

Trump Acting Like a Trapped Badger "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Things are coming to a head:

President Trumps lawyer called on the Justice Department to immediately shut down the special counsel probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, in the wake of the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Attorney John Dowd said in a statement that the investigation, now led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, was fatally flawed early on and corrupted by political bias. He called on Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees that probe, to shut it down.

I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabes boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier, Dowd said in an emailed statement.

Dowd told The Washington Post on Saturday he was speaking for himself and not on Trumps behalf. Earlier Saturday, Dowd told the Daily Beast that he was speaking on behalf of the president and in his capacity as the presidents attorney. (After the Daily Beast published its story, Dowd emailed the publication and said he was not speaking on the presidents behalf.)

Firing McCabe solved nothing for the president and probably made things worse:

Andrew McCabe the former FBI deputy director just fired by the attorney general kept personal memos regarding President Donald Trump.

Thats according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation who wasnt authorized to discuss the memos publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

This person says the memos are similar to the ones maintained by former FBI Director James Comey, who Trump fired last May.

Comeys series of notes detailed interactions with Trump that Comey said unnerved him.

The person with knowledge of McCabes situation says McCabes memos include details of interactions with the president, among other topics.

Its not immediately clear whether any of the McCabe memos have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller or requested by Mueller.

Meanwhile, James Comey has a book coming out and he's talking some pregame smack:

Gina Haspel's Confirmation Must Be Opposed "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

John Kiriakou blew the whistle on the CIAs torture program and all he got for thanks was a twenty-three month long visit to the hoosegow. He doesnt think that Gina Haspel should be confirmed as the next Director of Central Intelligence:

I was inside the CIAs Langley, Va., headquarters on Sept. 11, 2001. Like all Americans, I was traumatized, and I volunteered to go overseas to help bring al-Qaedas leaders to justice. I headed counterterrorism operations in Pakistan from January to May 2002. My team captured dozens of al-Qaeda fighters, including senior training-camp commanders. One of the fighters whom I played an integral role in capturing was Abu Zubaida, mistakenly thought at the time to be the third-ranking person in the militant group.

By that May, the CIA had decided to torture him. When I returned to CIA headquarters that month, a senior officer in the Counterterrorism Center asked me if I wanted to be trained in the use of enhanced interrogation techniques. I had never heard the term, so I asked what it meant. After a brief explanation, I declined. I said that I had a moral and ethical problem with torture and that the judgment of the Justice Department notwithstanding I thought it was illegal.

Unfortunately, there were plenty of people in the U.S. government who were all too willing to allow the practice to go on. One of them was Gina Haspel, whom President Trump nominated Tuesday as the CIAs next director.

Im not going to pretend to know the truth about Haspels thirty-three year career in intelligence. When people in that field recommend her, Im sure they are sincere and that she has performed most of her duties in a laudable manner.

I oppose her nomination irrespective of her overall record. And this is because what this country needs to do is to make it as clear as possible that torturing people was a mistake. It was an anomaly borne of the panic and stress of the devastating 9/11 attacks, but its contrary to our principles. Far from wanting to excuse the torture program or merely discontinue it, we want to argue with some credibility that other nations should respect peoples human rights and dignity and not mistreat people in their custody and at their mercy.

We cannot do that if one of the people most responsible for the torture and the cover-up is elevated to our top intelligence position. It doesnt matter in the least to me whether shed be good at the job or not. It doesnt matter at all to me whether all the details about her role have been...

Hungarys PM Viktor Orban warns of immigration threat at National Day rally The situation is that those who dont block migration at their borders will be lost. They will slowly but surely be digested [they] will live to see when they become a minority in their own country and lose the only place in the world to call home. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Speaking to tens of thousands of his supporters, Prime Minister Viktor Orban used emotive language as he focused on immigration. He has been branded as a racist, xenophobe and bully by the UNs human rights chief.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban

The rally in front of the Hungarian parliament building during a national holiday on Thursday was a large one: Up to 100,000 Orban supporters came to hear the prime minister make a 25-minute speech on what has become the main theme of the elections: immigration.

They want us to voluntarily give [our country] to others, to foreigners from other continents who dont speak our language, dont respect our culture, laws or lifestyle, Orban told the crowd. They want to exchange ours for their own. There is no exaggeration in this.

The elections are to be held in three weeks time, on April 8, and Orban has a significant lead in the opinion polls. His policies to block immigration have been the main focus of his campaign to gain the premiership for a third time.

Banners with the words Homeland before all and God protect Hungary and Poland from left-wing ideology! were prominent in the rally.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban spoke at the rally which also marked the 1848 Hungarian Revolution against AustriaPrime Minister Viktor Orban spoke at the rally which also marked the 1848 Hungarian Revolution against Austria

Catholic Church future in Tonga depends on faith "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The future of the Catholic church in Tonga depends on faith shining through simplicity, according to Cardinal Sane Patita Mafi.

For me, ours is a journey along the path to growth in finding real joy in being who we are, and even in the beauty of just being alive, Cardinal Mafi told Catholic Outlook in New south Wales.

In other words, we shine out in being simple.

Richness in faith, love and joy gave beauty to many of the poorer Tongan families.

These people still show joy in their ordinary way of living even when they still give to others out of their own poverty. There is also a glow of certain grace in people in homes who on a daily basis take good care of their sick and elderly members, he said.

Cardinal Mafi, who is also Bishop of Tonga and Niue, was appointed to the cardinalate by Pope Francis in 2015.

He sees the spread of Mormonism in Tonga as a challenge to the Catholic church.

The Latter Day Saints have claimed that 60% of Tongans are Mormon, although this figure is disputed.

Cardinal Mafi sees this growth Whatever the real story behind the counting process normally used by the Mormon Church, what is perhaps more important here is something for all other churches including the Catholics to learn from, the Cardinal said.

He described the growth of the LDS, whose members include Prince Ata as  a wake-up call for all churches and especially for our local Catholic churches.

He said the Mormons untiring door-to-door home visitations and their charitable offerings to struggling families and individuals, was an inspiring example for Catholic pastoral work.

Understandably there are many of our people who do struggle with financial needs to their families, he said.

He said Caritas and the Society of St Vincent de Paul helped the marginalised with necessities and environmental initiatives.

Caritas had been involved with community projects in villages and parishes to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Projects included planting trees along shorelines as soil protection and to screen buildings from the wind.

Long before Caritas was established in Tonga, the St Vincent de Paul Society was already functioning on the parish level in helping out those poorer families and those who were la...

Teetering on the Edge of Nuclear War "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

5543

This isnt the first time. As this is written, the US, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense, is bringing carrier battle groups into both the Red Sea and Mediterranean to attack both Syrian and Russian Forces inside Syria.

According to a March 16, 2018 article in Israels Haaretz newspaper, Israel is preparing for Russia as well and expecting mass casualties.

Russia has warned the US and Israel that it will retaliate on any platform that launches attacks on Syrian Arab Army or Damascus government defense centers which are all shared with Russian personnel. This simply means that American ships are subject to obliteration and Russia is more than capable of doing so. Why have we come to this point.

From Israels Haaretz, dated March 16, 2018:

The army conducted an exercise this week which simulated a multi-front war in which Russia intervened to prevent Israel from attacking Syria.

Throughout the exercise, we examined various implications of the Russian presence in Syria, a senior Israel Defense Forces officer said. We practiced everything that could be coordinated with the Russians and also what couldnt be, how we would operate without harming their interests in the region, and on the flip side, scenarios in which the Russians made trouble for instance, by sending a message that Israel was undermining their regional interests.

To understand, we can go to news stories from March16, 2018 and statements made by the Russian government. From Sputnik News:

Jabhat al-Nusra militants along with the White Helmets are preparing a staged chemical attack in the Alghabit and Kalbb Lusa communities situated 25 km (15 miles) to the North-West of Idlib. There are 20 chlorine containers in their possession, said the Russian General Staff.

The American and British press refused to carry this statement or any of the others though the general public has every right to know their lives are being played with. Many of us who work in journalism or the intelligence and security sectors say it is about time that someone called out the White Helmets and their role in killing civilians on behalf of Western intelligence agenc...

Pilakambi Secondary School in Wabag, Laiagam District has become one of the first remote schools in Enga province to have solar lights in classrooms and dormitories, thanks to Banks South Pacific (BSP). The delivery of the lights was part of  the BSP  Wabag branch 2018 community project initiative, subsequent to the theme for  this year's Community Projects "Solar lights in High Schools" near each BSP branch,  especially for boarding schools.

Branch staffs with the help of a local contractor installed solar panels and connected led lights to a total of 10 classrooms and 2 dormitories for Pilakambi Secondary.

BSP Branch Manager for Wabag Thomas Tembil said, "BSP believes that providing Solar lights to schools will help improve literacy rates as well as an increase number of student intake into Tertiary Education."

"With these lights now installed for the school, it may now enhance student's night studies and also provide a safe and secure environment in the campus for all," Mr Tembil added.

Pilakambi Secondary School Principal Ms Kangun, expressed her gratitude to BSP for recognising a remote schools very need and attending to it.

"The initiative is an eye opener for the community and we urged the community to take ownership of this asset and look after it, as it will benefit us all local villagers around here," She said.

BSP Wabag branch is the first out 46 community projects rolled out for this year based on the theme "Solar lights in High Schools" to officially hand over its project.

The electoral campaign that is Russia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Its early March, two weeks before Russias polling day, but the presidential election season is already in full swing in Chubulga, a reindeer-herding settlement in north-eastern Yakutia. Its an hours flight to the nearest village, which is itself a further two hours from the nearest asphalt road and 5,000km east of Moscow.

With a population of just three, this district is unlikely to turn the electoral tide. But with election officials desperate to raise turnout and show support for current president Vladimir Putin, no expense has been spared.

So they sent a team of election officials by plane, plus some trudging through the snow.  And this:

Results differ across regions. Some areas allegedly concoct results to show their loyalty to the Kremlin: Putin regularly polls above 99 per cent in Chechnya. In major cities like Moscow and St Petersburg, Putin is so unpopular among the middle class that he wins less than half the vote, despite accusations of voter fraud. In Yakutia, Putins last election return of 69 per cent was typical for Russias far-flung provinces. But the regions vastness means that the key is maintaining the 75 per cent turnout. As a result, officials have to go further than anywhere else to show democracy in action.

Germanys Seehofer Says EU Patronizing Eastern Members on Migrants

BERLIN (REUTERS)  German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has accused the European Union of adopting a patronizing stance in talks with eastern European members about the distribution of migrants.

Seehofer, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkels CSU Bavarian allies, made the comments in an interview with German Sunday newspaper Die Welt am Sonntag, days after sparking a public outcry by saying Islam did not belong to Germany.

Image result for Die Welt am Sonntag, seehofer, photos

The former Bavarian premier is keen to show his party is tough on migration abuses ahead of October state elections in Bavaria, to win back voters who defected in large numbers to the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) in the Sept. 24 national election. The AfD has also been critical of the EU.

Seehofer called for continued German border controls as long as the EU is unable to protect its external borders, and criticized the European Commission for what he called a moralizing tone toward eastern European states who have refused to take in asylum seekers under an EU-wide quota system.

Such an attitude was counter-productive, Seehofer said, adding, Every country has its pride.

President Trumps closest legal adviser wants Special Counsel Robert Muellers probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election to go the way of Andrew McCabes FBI career.

I pray that Acting Attorney General [Rod] Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, John Dowd, Trumps personal lawyer, said Saturday.

Sessions fired FBI deputy director McCabe on Friday on the heels of a recommendation by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility.

Bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabes boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier, Dowd wrote.

His statement came in response to a question from the Daily Beast about McCabes firing.

Just end [the Mueller probe] on the merits in light of recent revelations, Dowd told the Washington Post.

Dowd at first claimed to be speaking on Trumps behalf, but later said that his statements were personal opinions.

They are at odds with the public stance taken by the legal team that Trump has taskedwith defending his campaign in Muellers probe.

Ty Cobb, the lead attorney in that effort, has made much of the administrations willingness to cooperate with Muellers investigators.

There is no consideration at the White House of terminating the special counsel, Cobb said in December.

China throws sinking Brunei a lifeline "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah looks to Beijing for succor as his nation's oil and gas reserves run dry


Brunei's ruler, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, is in a race against time as his nations once deep stores of oil and gas rapidly run dry. While other foreign investors up stakes, China is giving the Southeast Asian sultanate a new lease on economic life.

International banks such as HSBC and Citibank have recently ceased operations in Brunei in sight of its contracting oil and gas business, driven down by years of depressed global energy prices. But one major financial institution has filled the vacuum: Bank of China (BOC).

BOC established a branch in Brunei in 2016 to facilitate Beijings foreign direct investments. Yang Jian, Chinas ambassador to Brunei, last year described the sultanate as an important node in the US$1 trillion Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), President Xi Jinpings signature continental and maritime infrastructure development initiative.

Some observers believe China intends to leverage its major investments and close political ties with Bruneis ruler to sway the countrys stance on territorial disputes in the South China Sea, where the sultanate is also a rival claimant. That, they say, would deter other Southeast Asian claimants from reaching consensus on the issue.

China is placing huge pressure on Brunei to concede joint development in its exclusive economic zone (EEZ). These are rights that clearly belong to Brunei by any reading of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), says Bill Hayton, associate fellow at the Asia-Pacific Program at Chatham House.

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


by Noah

An open letter to Melania:

Dear Melania,

We've been going over various statistics relating to your husband's failure of a life and failure of a career (if one can call it that). After this examination, it appears that you are, to use, a precise, scientific term, slacking off. You have not, yet, reached the standards of your set by your husband's other business ventures. To do that, you would have to join his other wives and whatevers and walk out of the "relationship." If nothing else, ask yourself if that thing you call a husband is a good role model for Baron. Do you really want him to turn out hideously, almost freakishly, like Don Jr., Eric, or Ivanka? It's not too late, and we'd like to point out that there are plenty of children being well-raised in single parent households.

I know you probably think that you are trapped in some sort of ironclad prenup or other contract, but, as Stormy Daniels has shown, sometimes an agreement is not an agreement. I'm sure that there are plenty of lawyers that are ready willing and very able to be of assistance to you and Baron. From what we've seen, you can certainly find a lawyer that is better than any who will work for your husband at this point.

So, Melania, why not trade in your humiliation for some redemption? In fact, if you want to go the extra mile, you could lead the entire White House staff right out the door with you. Now, that's the kind of parade that your husband deserves!

Sincerely,

Noah...

EXCLUSIVE: Inadequate Inspection HMICFRS Contradicts MULLIGAN

by TIM HICKS

~~~~~

Background: NYP are rated Inadequate for crime recording

Regular readers of the NYE will be aware of my recent article: NYP fails crime recording inspection

Concerning a rating of Inadequate (the lowest available to the Inspectorate) by Her Majestys Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) Crime Data Integrity (CDI) for North Yorkshire Police (NYP) crime recording: As it stands today, we estimate almost 1 in 5 crimes in North Yorkshire are not properly recorded. This is simply inexcusable.

 The full HMICFRS report can be read here. It is a good report, clear, well written and based on empirical audit testing. It does HMICFRS credit and is well worth reading in full. There is a full analysis of the report contained in the above article

The response of Police & Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire (PCC) Julia Mulligan to the HMICFRS Inspection 

Police & Crime Commissioner Julia Mulligan released a positive statement on the website which gives the bare fact, but does not mention the grading of Inadequate. It then went on to downplay the importance of this failure by claiming it has not impacted victims and was primarily a recording issue:

Crime recording must improve as a matter of urgency

Commissioner Julia Mulligan, elected Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, says the Chief Constable must make improvements as a matter of urgency following HMICFRS Crime Data Integrity report which found that 80 per cent of all crime was being recorded by North Yorkshire Police.

Julia said: I am concerned by this report which clearly identifies that North Yorkshire Police is not recording crime as it should. The public rightly expect better, and improvements need to be made as a matter of urgency.

I also have wider concerns about how well the police understand some crimes, in particular stalking, harassment and....

Philippines Duterte urges other nations to quit ICC International Law is The Problem. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP

AFP/File | Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte lashed out at the ICC two days after his government officially notified the United Nations of his decision to pull the Philippines out of the Rome Statute

MANILA (PHILIPPINES) (AFP)  Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday urged other nations to follow his move to quit a treaty underpinning the International Criminal Court which is examining his deadly drug war.

Duterte lashed out at the war crimes tribunal two days after his government officially notified the United Nations of his decision to pull the Philippines out of the Rome Statute.

I said withdraw simply because to announce to the world and I will convince everybody now who (is) under the treaty: get out, get out. It is rude, Duterte said in a speech before Philippine Military Academy graduates.

It is not a document that was prepared by anybody. Its an EU-sponsored (treaty), he added, as he criticised the court for going after blacks.

The Hague-based ICC announced last month it was launching a preliminary examination of Dutertes bloody anti-drug crackdown that has drawn international concern.

Duterte, 72, won elections in mid-2016 vowing to launch an unprecedented drug war in which tens of thousands of people would die.

Police say they have killed nearly 4,100 drug suspects as part of the campaign, while rights groups claim the toll is around three times the numbers given by authorities.

Opened in 2002, the ICC is the worlds only permanent war crimes court and aims to prosecute the worst abuses when national courts are unable or unwilling.

On Friday, the Philippines formally notified the UN that it was withdrawing from the ICC saying the stand was against those who would politicise and weaponise human rights.

The tribunal had urged Manila to reconsider its decision, with the president of its governing body saying he deeply regretted the move.

A state party withdrawing from the Rome Statute would negatively impact our collective efforts towards fighting impunity, said Assembly of State Parties president O-Gon Kwon.

Britain promises new sanctions against Vladimir Putin and Kremlin-linked oligarchs Nerve agent spy war continues to boil "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ministers are plotting new sanctions against Vladimir Putin and Kremlin-linked oligarchs after the Russian government expelled 23 British diplomats and launched an assault on its cultural ties with Britain.

A government source said detailed conversations were taking place over the next steps after the Kremlins disgraceful order that the British Councils offices in Russia, together with the UKs St Petersburg consulate, should be shut down in the wake of Britains response to the poisoning of a former KGB spy and his daughter.

Ahead of a National Security Council meeting planned for early this week, Theresa May was facing calls to target regime-linked money in London.

How we can stop criminal cartels stealing our forests "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Police action squad dealing to illegal loggers in Oro Province. Image: Gary Juffa/FB

OPINION: By Gary Juffa

In the ongoing saga of stopping illegal logging in Papua New Guineas Oro province, our facts reveal that the PNG Forest Authority is failing our people.

A network exists whereby a few corrupt public servants in both Oro and the PNG Forest Authority have helped facilitate fraud and theft of resources worth millions. This network exists in every province where there is illegal logging occurring.

In Oro we have identified those involved and they shall be dealt with.

Meanwhile, our investigations reveal that PNGFA is negligent in its efforts and has been facilitating the theft of our forest resources for decades, it is complicit in the transnational crimes being committed and those who process the paperwork are in fact accomplices.

Despite all the government rhetoric about stopping illegal logging such as the SABLs and being concerned about the environment, the truth is, that this government entity, designed and created for the purpose of protecting PNG interests PNG resources   is in fact failing miserably in its mandate and is assisting transnational criminal cartels steal our forest reources.

What is the point of an organisation we pay for with our taxes to serve transnational criminal cartels and sell us out?

Pretext and fraud
Every month, shipments worth millions leave our shores forest resources obtained under pretext and fraud, leaving behind destroyed landscapes, polluted waterways, and miserable landowners who have either been fooled or contemptuously mistreated and intimidated by corrupt elements of the public service and police.

But we can stop it.

Yes, you and I.

If we know about it and do nothing, we too are complicit.

I am doing something about it. I need you to stand with me and demand that the PNGFA and its Chairman, David Dotaon,a and its minister, Douglas Tomuriesa, and its entire department act to stop these crimes against Papua New Guinea and our people and protect our forest resources..........

https://adamsmith.files.wordpress.com/2018/03/mwatch-20180318-0911-summer_camp_scandal_sparks_flood_of_opinion-128.mp3

There is a comprehensive post at RNZ, but this comment stood out

on Scoop.co.nz, Gordon Campbell made this point:

There is something a bit off about the media raising this matter as if everyone else was acting out of self-interest, while its own motives and the possible impact of media coverage on victims who had previously expressed their desire that the events not be publicly disclosed are seen to be above question, he wrote.

The revelations triggered a flood of opinion in the media, some of which claimed cynical political spin overrode the rights of the victims without making it clear what those rights really were, and that some of the victims appeared to exercise them independently.

The media themselves played a big role in making this a political, rather than a personal or social story.

Yes, but Labour by its actions enabled that and whatever the circumstances, given the people involved it was always going to be political. By finishing their article with this comment, from an avowed leftie, Mediawatch did themselves and RNZ a major disservice.

Prospects for Metis Civilization "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Transition from the Indian Act to Aboriginal self-government

The debate about the Indian Act and how to reconcile the elected councils and the traditionals over the past 40 years has been shaped by the sweeping intent of the White Paper of 1969, issued as Pierre Trudeau began his career as prime minister. It set out a liberal, multicultural challenge, an attempt to supersede the Indian Act by eliminating any special status for natives altogether. This galvanized the natives towards a defence of their special status, above and prior to the colonial settlers. It is a nice historical touch that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made native issues a priority, perhaps putting in place a new dispensation that has been germinating ever since.

BC Nisgaa New Years Celebration

Some landmarks in the movement to replace the 1876 Indian Act include:

(a) In 1973, the federal government commenced talks with the Yukon Native Brotherhood (later the Council for Yukon First Nations). In 1995, the Umbrella Final Agreement and the Final and Self-Government Agreements for four Yukon First Nations became law.

Other Yukon First Nations subsequently signed final agreements, bringing most of the Yukons First Nations into a radically different relationship with the government of Canada. Reserves were replaced by settlement lands. First Nations governments operating under settlement agreements, with much wider scope than those regulated by the Indian Act, had to design and implement financial management regimes, and continue negotiations with federal and territorial authorities on financial/tax arrangements and transfers of programs and services. In the Yukon First Nations Land Claims Settlement Act (1994), the legislation noted, When a final agreement is given effect, the Indian Act ceases to apply in respect of any reserve identified in the agreement as settlement land.

(b)  The creation of Nunavut in 1999, an Inuit-controlled jurisdiction with the same range of powers as the other two territories, has raised even further the bar on Aboriginal governance.

(c) An agreement with the Nisgaa and the governments of Canada and British Columbia was reached in 2000, eventually leading to a British Columbia referendum on treaty process in the province. The Nisgaa approach to self-government is markedly different from that laid out in the Yukon, where each of the 14 First Nations has a First Nations government operating under the Umbrella Final Agreement.

Reference: Courts of Texas

Summary: A discussion about the infamous abundance of patent cases in the Eastern District of Texas (TXED/EDTX) and what this will mean for businesses that have branches or any form of operations there (making them subjected to lawsuits in that district even after TC Heartland)

THE Eastern District of Texas (TXED/EDTX) has been getting a bad name. Its now nationally recognised (if not internationally renowned/notorious) for fostering patent trolls. They typically use software patents granted by the USPTO and they enjoy courts whose attitude is plaintiff-friendly and tolerant/accepting of software patents in spite of Alice. After TC Heartland, however, it became a lot harder to drag companies into these courts.

Ironically, for Eastern Texas at least, this whole gamble on the litigation industry may, from now on, actively discourage companies from coming and encourage those which have an office there to leave that district.The other day Watchtroll recalled a complaint filed by SimpleAir in the Eastern District of Texas.

The #heart is the first organ to develop in the womb and the first cause of concern for many parents.

For expecting mothers, the excitement of pregnancy is often offset by anxiety over medication they require. Parents and doctors often have to consider the mothers health as well as the potential risk regarding how medication could affect their baby. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires certain drugs to be labeled with pregnancy exposure and risk. Some drugs are labeled to show that testing on animals has failed to demonstrate a risk but there are no adequate and well-controlled studies of pregnant women.

Some drugs are difficult for doctors to prescribe to pregnant women because they dont know the embryo toxicity, how does that effect fetal development, said biomedical engineering Professor Zhen Ma. They dont have the clinical outcome based on human study.

PTAB Hatred is So Intense Among the Patent Industry That Even Scammers Are Hailed as Champions If They Target PTAB "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Michael Shore

Summary: The patent microcosm is so eager to stop the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) that its supporting sham deals (or scams) and exploits/distorts the voice of the new USPTO Director to come up with PTAB-hostile catchphrases

THE patent reform in the United States is very real; its effective. The USPTO makes it a lot harder to pursue software patents (unless theyre disguised as something different a subject we shall cover and tackle separately).

An anti-PTAB site of the patent microcosm currently tries to frame PTABs opposition as [p]harmaceutical patent owners, but in reality its just greedy law firms that oppose PTAB. It mentioned PTABs Chief Judge Ruschke the other day after he had once again responded to critics.

Likely in response to these concerns, Chief Judge Ruschke announced the results of an Orange Book-listed Patent Study during his Chat with the Chief on March 13, 2018. The meeting presentation slides can be found here. During the chat, the Chief Judge also revealed the results of an expanded panel study, which we will analyze in a future post. For the Orange Book study, the PTAB classified a petition as challenging an Orange Book-listed patent if, unsurprisingly, the patent was listed in the Orange Book when the petition was filed. The data provided was through the end of the fiscal year 2017, which ended on September 31, 2017. We will look at three of the questions asked by the Office in this study.

The author, Andrew Williams, concluded as follows: In any event, this study by the Patent Office is certainly interesting. It does go a long way to allaying the fears of NDA holders. Nevertheless, considering that an IPR is a lose-or-draw proposition for any patent holder, and that Orange Book-listed patents are so valuable to NDA holders, this may come as little comfort to the community. Instead, anything that disrupts the balance struck by Hatch-Waxman is not going to be seen as favorable, no matter how the actual numbers have been borne out.

The patent microcosm is attempting to guard an old (antiquated and collectively undesirable) status quo one in which patent trolls thrived, software patents had legal teeth, and lawsuits were abundant. IAM, the patent trolls lobby,...

Secret Empires Corruption Beyond Belief "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I have written many times about the deep corruption among the political class. The way they have always taken bribes is through their families. I have written how Hillarys brother magically got the gold mining contract from Hati when he wasnt a gold miner. The Clinton Foundation which was supposed to be a real charity shut down after she lost the elections as all the foreign government withdrew because they were simply bribing Hillary to get influence. Obama back in 2013 was forced to sign the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act into law at a celebratory ceremony attended by a bipartisan cast of lawmakers. That was exposed in 2011 on CBS 60 Minutes News Program. Then CNN ran a story on this loophole in 2012, and suddenly there was an Act in 2013.

Visualizing Cycles in Your Mind Helps to Comprehend How to Respond to Events "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

QUESTION: Is there a way to teach cycles that will enable others to see them more easily?

ANSWER: Oh yes. Students who developed visual mental models of cyclical principles flourish, while students who tried to learn cycles by rote invariably struggled. The mental picture is critical. It is a roadmap to the future. Just visualize the Economic Confidence Model and it will help to comprehend the business cycle and where you are at any given moment.

For example, in 2007 when everyone is buying houses, you can keep this in mind and take a pause, encouraging yourself to wait until next year. The same is true for expanding your business. The first time I really used this model in that decision process was 1976. I signed a lease for space and I got them to give me a 10-year lease. I negotiated the elimination of a CPI clause. Everyone was talking about a depression. My accountant thought I was nuts. I told him this model was never wrong and I was going with it. The space I took at $10 a square foot was $45 by 1980.

This model can provide tremendous guidance if you keep it...

Ever wanted to feel like one of those movie hackers from the late 90s? Yes, your basements full of overclocked Linux rigs and youve made sure all your terminal windows are set to green text on a black background, but thats not always enough. What you need is an RFID tag that unlocks your PC when you touch the reader with your RFID cardOnly then may you resume blasting away at your many keyboards in your valiant attempts to hack the mainframe.

[Luke] brings us this build, having wanted an easier way to log in quickly without foregoing basic security. Seeing as an RC522 RFID reader was already on hand, this became the basis for the project. The reader is laced up with a Sparkfun Pro Micro Arduino clone, with both devices serendipitously running on 3.3V, obviating the need for any level shifters. Code is simple, based on the existing Arduino RC522 library. Upon a successful scan of the correct tag, the Arduino acts as a HID keyboard and types the users password into the computer along with a carriage return, unlocking the machine. Simple!

Overall, its a tidy build that achieves what [Luke] set out to do. Its something that could be readily replicated with a handful of parts and a days work. If youre interested in the underlying specifics, weve discussed turning Arduinos into USB keyboards before.

Does fake news spread faster on Twitter? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

You may recall last week a spate of stories and tweets claiming that fake news spreads further and faster on Twitter.  For instance, there is Steve Lohr at the NYT, who doesnt quite get it right:

And people, the studys authors also say, prefer false news.

As a result, false news travels faster, farther and deeper through the social network than true news.

That struck me as off-base, and you can find other offenders, so I went back and read the original paper by Vosoughi, Roy, and Aral.  And what did I find?:

1. The data focus solely on rumor cascades.  The paper does not establish the relative ratio of fake news to real news, for instance.  The main questions take the form of within the data set of rumor cascades, what can we say about those cascades?

2. It still may (or may not) be the case that real news has its major effects through non-cascade mechanisms.  Most people are convinced of 2 + 2 = 4, but probably not because they heard it through a rumor cascade.

3. Within the universe of rumor cascades, this paper measures average effects.  It does not mean that at the margin fake news is more powerful.  For instance, the rumor Hillary Clinton is Satan may have been quite powerful, but that does not mean a particular new rumor can achieve the same force.  2 + 2 = 5 wont get you nearly as far in terms of retweets, I suspect.

4. Overall the results of this paper remind me of another problem/data issue.  At least in the old days, childrens movies used to earn more than films for adults, as stressed by Michael Medved.  That doesnt mean you have a quick money-making formula by simply making more movies for kids.  It could be a few major kids movies, driven perhaps by peer effects, suck up most of the oxygen in the room and dominate the market.  And then, within the universe of cascade-driven movies, kids movies will look really strong and indeed be really strong.  That also doesnt have to mean the kids movies have more cultural influence overall, even if they look dominant in the cascade-driven category.  In this analogy, the kids movies are like the fake news.

5. I am not sure how much the authors of the paper themselves are at fa...

Study Of Nearly 300,000 People Challenges The 'Obesity Paradox' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The idea that it might be possible to be overweight or obese but not at increased risk of heart disease, otherwise known as the "obesity paradox," has been challenged by a study of nearly 300,000 people published in in the European Heart Journal today (Friday).

This latest research shows that the risk of heart and blood vessel problems, such as heart attacks, strokes and high blood pressure, increases as body mass index (BMI) increases beyond a BMI of 22-23 kg/m2. Furthermore, the risk also increases steadily the more fat a person carries around their waist.

[...] Although it is already known that being overweight or obese increases a person's risk of CVD [cardiovascular disease], as well as other diseases such as cancer, there have also been studies that have suggested that, particularly in the elderly, being overweight or even obese might not have any effect on deaths from CVD or other causes, and may even be protective, especially if people maintain a reasonable level of fitness. This is known as the "obesity paradox."

However, the authors of the EHJ study say their results refute these previous, conflicting findings. "Any public misconception of a potential 'protective' effect of fat on heart and stroke risks should be challenged," said Dr Iliodromiti.

She continued: "This is the largest study that provides evidence against the obesity paradox in healthy people. It is possible that the story may be different for those with pre-existing disease because there is evidence that in cancer patients, for instance, being slightly overweight is associated with lower risk, especially as cancer and its treatments can lead to unhealthy weight loss.

[...] The researchers suggest that the previous confusion over the "obesity paradox" may be due to many factors that can confound results of studies. For instance, smoking changes the distribution of fat in the body, smokers may have lower weight as smoking depresses appetites and so BMI tends to be lower. Another reason could be that some people have existing but undiagnosed disease, which can often lower their weight but also makes them more likely to die prematurely.

The Patent Industry is Increasingly Mocking CAFC and Its Judges Because It Doesnt Like the Decisions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Latching onto cases like Berkheimer when it suits them, otherwise ridiculing judges and urging them to step down

Judge Mental
Reference: Why court-bashing is out of control.

Summary: Judgmental patent maximalists are still respecting high courts only when it suits them; whenever the outcome is not desirable theyre willing to attack the legitimacy of the courts and the competence of judges, even resorting to racist ad hominem attacks if necessary

LAST year the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) almost always rejected software patents that had been granted by the USPTO. Those granted patents were bogus. They should never have been granted in the first place.

No matter the number of debunkings, theyll continues to namedrop these cases and attempt to give an impression that software patents are still worth pursuing. Theyre not.Earlier this year there were a few CAFC decisions (such as Berkheimer [1, 2] and others) that were intentionally warped and wrongly interpreted as resurgence of software patents. We already wrote more than a dozen rebuttals to these and would spare ourselves the need to do so again. Unfortunately, sites like Watchtroll continue to push these lies/misinterpretations; they also...

Experts Reveal the Top 10 Careers That Have the Most Psychopaths "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Professor of psychology at the University of North Texas, Dr. Craig S. Neumann, Ph.D. defines psychopathy as a pathological personality disposition that involves charm, manipulation, and ruthless exploitation of others. Psychopathic persons are lacking in conscience and feeling for others; they selfishly take what they want and do as they please without the slightest sense of guilt or regret. It is said that psychopaths make up approximately 1% of the general population. They are our family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.

While one may think that a psychopath would be easy to spot, experts assure that couldnt be further from the truth. Due to their ability to manipulate and charm those that they meet, they are often able to fly under the radar, seeking out and entrapping their victims. Unfortunately, psychopathy among adults is rarely, if ever, treatable. For this reason, its important to learn how to identify and protect ourselves from their influence.

In his book The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success, Kevin Dutton, a research psychologist at the University of Oxford is an expert at understanding the mind of a psychopath. He revealed that there are certain career paths and jobs that are frequented by psychopaths more than others. For example, it is estimated that approximately 10% of the worlds CEOs would meet the criteria for psychopathy, significantly higher than the 1% average in the general public. He identified the 10 careers that boast the most psychopaths, as well as the careers that are least likely to be held by a psychopath. Interested in seeing how your career measures up?

U.S. officials: Saudi crown prince has hidden his mother from his father, the king "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When Saudi Arabia's crown prince visits the White House next week, he's expected to be welcomed as a reformer who's expanded women's rights in one of the most restrictive countries in the world, allowing them to drive and attend sports events. Yet there is one Saudi woman whom U.S. officials say has not benefited from the prince's rise: his own mother. Fourteen current and former senior U.S. officials told NBC News that intelligence shows Prince Mohammed bin Salman - often referred to by his initials MBS - blocked his mother from seeing his father, King Salman, more than two years ago and has kept her away from him as the young prince rapidly amassed power. Prince Mohammed, a key ally of the Trump White House, has concocted various explanations of his mother's whereabouts over the years, such as that she's out of the country receiving medical treatment, so King Salman would not know his son has been behind her continued absence, the current and former officials said.

The War on the Post Office "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The US Postal Service, under attack from a manufactured crisis designed to force its privatization, needs a new source of funding to survive. Postal banking could fill that need.

*****

The US banking establishment has been at war with the post office since at least 1910, when the Postal Savings Bank Act established a public savings alternative to a private banking system that had crashed the economy in the Bank Panic of 1907. The American Bankers Association was quick to respond, forming a Special Committee on Postal Savings Legislation to block any extension of the new service. According to a September 2017 article in The Journal of Social History titled Banks of the People: The Life and Death of the U.S. Postal Savings System, the banking fraternity would maintain its enmity toward the government savings bank for the next 50 years.

As far back as the late 19th century, support for postal savings had united a nationwide coalition of workers and farmers who believed that government policy should prioritize their welfare over private business interests. Advocates noted that most of the civilized nations of the world maintained postal savings banks, providing depositors with a safe haven against repeated financial panics and bank failures. Today, postal banks that are wholly or majority owned by the government are still run successfully not just in developing countries but in France, Switzerland, Israel, Korea, India, New Zealand, Japan, China, and other industrialized nations.

The US Postal Savings System came into its own during the banking crisis of the early 1930s, when it became the national alternative to a private banking system that people could not trust. Demands increased to expand its services to include affordable loans. Alarmed bankers called it the Postal Savings Menace and warned that it could result in the destruction of the entire private banking system.

But rather than expanding the Postal Savings System, the response of President Franklin Roosevelt was to buttress the private banking system with public guarantees, including FDIC deposit insurance. That put private banks in the enviable position of being able to keep their profits while their losses were covered by the government. Deposit insurance along with a statutory cap on the interest paid on postal savings caused postal banking to lose its edge. In 1957, under President Eisenhower, the head of the government bureau responsible for the Postal Savings System called for its abolition, arguing that it is desirable that the government withdraw from competitive private business at every point.

CDC contradicts previous police reports, says missing Ebola and Zika virus expert had recently received promotion "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

CDC contradicts previous police reports, says missing Ebola and Zika virus expert had recently received promotion | 14 March 2018 | An Atlanta-area Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employee who disappeared over a month ago did receive a promotion, the agency said, seemingly contradicting previous reports from police. In a statement Monday, the CDC said Timothy Cunningham, who hasn't been seen since Feb. 12, had been promoted last July..."In fact, he received an early promotion/exceptional proficiency promotion to Commander effective July 1, 2017, in recognition of his exemplary performance in the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS)," the statement continues. Atlanta police previously said Cunningham, 35, a commander in the Public Health Service who has been sent to respond to public health emergencies including the Ebola virus and the Zika virus, was told on Feb. 5 that he didn't get a promotion he was up for. A police spokesman told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Monday that they stand by their previous statements.

Tribally-owned Company, InTerra Nutraceuticals, Introduces Functional Therapeutic Lotions & Serums "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Published March 18, 2018

TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN InTerra Nutraceuticals, a 100 percent tribally-owned business enterprise of the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians, has introduced an all-natural product line of therapeutic lotions that can be purchased online.

Based in Traverse City, Michigan, InTerra Nutraceuticals is a formulations company that markets functional therapeutic products. InTerra products are created primarily from proprietary highly concentrated 100 percent natural tart cherries, ultra-refined Kalaya oil (emu oil) and Omega 3, 6 & 9 sourced from cold water mercury-free fish oil. The synergetic effect of these primary ingredients provides natural therapeutic benefits from sports enthusiasts to the older adults suffering from arthritis, joint and skin inflammation, eczema, psoriasis, migraines, and other common ailments.

Established in 2004,  the company was originally called Cerise Nutraceuticals. The business was acquired by the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians in late 2016. The tribe renamed the company InTerra (meaning of the earth) Nutraceuticals to provide new packaging and updated formulations to the lotions. The vision of the tribe and new management group was to introduce completely re-designed proven legacy products that were refined and improved. From the original products, these highly acclaimed offerings provide the foundation for new opportunities and accelerated growth in the wellness market on a global scale.

I believe in many of the natural qualities of the products, such as the tart cherries, and their relationship with tribes ancestral homelands, as well as the patented science and testimonials demonstrating the impressive efficacy of the product, says Little River Band of Ottawa Indians Ogema Larry Romanelli.

The vision of the tribe and new management group, was to fast-track the launch of completely re-designed legacy products that were refined and improved, but then the Tribe further challenged the team to create highly valued formulations not offered in the marketplace previously.

My goal is to develop products that we all can be proud of in quality, packaging design, and effectiveness that in fact have real functional and holistic benefits to the world.  All of our products are based around...

Interior Secretary Zinke Testified Falsely Thursday Said Letter to Chairman Bishop Responded to Rep. Barragans Ethics Concerns "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke testifying on Thursday before the House Natural Resources Committee

Published March 18, 2018

WASHINGTON   Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Thursday falsely claimed, during a public Committee hearing on the Interior Departments fiscal year 2019 budget proposal, that he had already responded to Rep. Nanette Diaz Barragns (D-Calif.) and Rep. Don Beyers (D-Va.) Oct. 5, 2017, letter requesting information about his taxpayer-funded travel. The letter Zinke held up during the hearing, which he claimed was sent to the ranking member and Chairman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) on Oct. 31, 2017, was not a response to the letter from Reps. Barragan and Beyer and was never sent to any Democrat. No Democrat on the Committee was made aware of the letter before today.

Rep. Barragn and Ranking Member Ral M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) Thursday said that Zinke needs to apologize for intentionally misleading the Committee, Rep. Barragn and the American people.

Transparency makes Secretary Zinke deeply uncomfortable, but until today it wasnt clear how difficult it is for him to tell the truth about his ethical lapses and managerial failures, Grijalva said today. Claiming to have answered questions he knew he ignored and waving a piece of paper at a member of Congress as though it answered her legitimate questions is the height of arrogance. Secretary Zinke needs to come clean to the American people about how he conducts his affairs.

I was shocked to learn that Secretary Zinke misled me and my fellow members of the Committee during his testimony this morning, said Rep. Barragn. His deception certainly seems intentional given that the Secretary was holding the letter in his hand and reading from it aloud ironically, while lecturing me about courtesy. Even with the facts in front of him, he was willing to mislead Americans and members of Congress. The Secretary owes the public and this Committee an apology, but more than that he owes us the truth about his extravagant spending of taxpayer dollars.

Exploring Ibogaine as an Addiction Solution "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Published March 18, 2018

ROSARITO, MEXICO -There are many who are fighting against drug addiction, who are searching for a second chance for their life. For them, finding the right treatment can be a bit challenging.

One alternative to traditional treatment methods is called Ibogaine, and it is a potential solution for any addict struggling with drugs and alcohol. Many addicts who have tried treatment with Ibogaine claim that withdrawal symptoms from addiction are nearly all eliminated after only one session with Ibogaine.

What is Ibogaine?

Ibogaine is a natural, psychoactive drug found in the root bark of the Iboga plant (or other plants from the Apocynaceae family). It works by healing damage in the brain caused by the drugs that the person is addicted to. Ibogaine also stops withdrawalsespecially opiate and heroin withdrawalsalmost as soon as its metabolized within the body. The psychological effects are equally important to the recovery process, although not all addicts experience these effects.

History of Ibogaine

In the 19th century, European explorers noticed that Iboga, which Ibogaine is extracted from, was used in tribes living in West Africa for medicinal and ritual traditions. Between the 1930s and 1960s, Ibogaine was used as stimulant in France, and marketed under the name Lambarene.

In 1962, a young heroin addict named Howard Lotsof discovered Ibogaines effects on addiction completely by accident. He took Ibogaine for its psychoactive effects and found that it prevented withdrawals and allowed him to free himself of his heroin addiction.

The US conducted limited research on the potential for Ibogaine to treat addiction but ended experiments after a relatively short period of time. Its now considered a schedule I drug and made illegal in the US and several other countries. Countries like Mexico and Canada have continued using Ibogaine to fight addiction with promising results.

Starting Treatment

Making the choice to pursue treatment with Ibogaine should be based on research and communication with licensed medical providers. Self-medicating can be dangerous and have serious adverse effects. Make sure to properly check the credentials...

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) Carries on Enforcing 101, Invalidating Software Patents and Upsetting the Patent Industry in the Process "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Latest in Oil States Energy Services, LLC v Greenes Energy Group, LLC

Oil States Energy Services, LLC v Greenes Energy Group, LLC update

Summary: A quick report on where PTAB stands at the moment, some time ahead of the Oil States decision (soon to come from the US Supreme Court)

THE past 4 years have been historic; the US Supreme Court decided on Alice nearly 4 years ago and AIA had already come into effect, adding a sort of supervisory role for USPTO examiners. They were no longer able to issue patents with quite the same leeway (which they got accustomed to). With Inter Partes Reviews (IPRs) at PTAB we nowadays see a rise in activity whose net effect is reduction not inflation of patenting. Common sense would say thats a Good Thing, but for those who made a living from patent maximalism this is actually a nightmare. It forces them to make cuts.

A week ago the Financial Times (FT) said (behind paywall) that patent reform during the Obama administration arguably went too far. Remember that FT is paid by patent maximalists and trolls boosters like Battistelli. It also occasionally promotes UPC, bashes patent reform, and bashes PTAB etc. We gave many examples of that before.

Truth be said, not everyone is happy, but we need to study the motivation for that disdain and spot the pattern. Its almost always the case that PTAB bashing comes from the litigation industry; PTAB helps reduce litigation, settling issues before they reach the court and typically by invalidating patents that would be a waste of courts time.

Heres IAM, the patent trolls lobby, with its latest attempt at PTAB bashing:

Patents in the biotechnology and organic chemistry, computer architecture, and e-commerce spaces are much more likely to survive the IPR process than those in other technology areas, new research has revealed. Semiconductor patents, on the other hand, fare the worst. Whats more, universities and small entities have a lower rate of success when compared to others.

Longtime Traders Stress Fairness, Accuracy and Not Selling Off Pawn "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Navajo Times | Ravonelle Yazzie
Richardsons Cash Pawn is a well-known store in Gallup where for decades Navajo people have used their services.

Published March 18, 2018

GALLUP, NEW MEXICO  A few years before Bill RIchardson, the Indian trader and pawn dealer, died at the age of 98 in 2017, he was asked about the many items in his pawn vault.

At the time, people were estimating the items were worth $10 million or more. The items had been given to him by Navajo families over the previous five or six decades for safe keeping and had been stored away for the benefit of those families.

The families trusted Richardson, whose family had been in the business for more than 100 years, to keep their items safe and not to sell them even if they failed to show up when the pawn went dead and by law could be sold.

Richardson remained active in the business up until his death but as he grew older, the question would come up more and more: What would happen to the pawn in his vault when he was gone?

There is no need to worry about that, he would say. I have made plans to make sure that the items in my vault will not be sold after I am gone.

So in September 2017, just three months after his death, the tens of thousands of items in Richardsons vault was transported quietly less than a mile away to the vault at Perry Null Trading Post.

After the transfer, letters were sent out to the people who had pawned their items and whose addresses were still valid. Flyers were also put up telling people who had pawned at Richardsons that their item was now being handled by Perry Null.

And although both trading companies tried to inform everyone of the transaction, some were caught unawares.

One complaint

One woman from Continental Divide, New Mexico, complained to the Navajo Times this week about the transfer, saying she had not been told in advance and didnt want her items transferred to Perry Null since her family had dealt with Bill Richardson for generations.

Refusing to make her name public, she said once she learned of the transfer, she went to the Perry Null Trading Post and paid for her familys items and took them back to Richardsons to have them placed back in h...

Progressive candidates campaigning on legalization can be found-- and supported-- by clicking on the Blue America Green Wave thermometer on the right. NORML is also working hard for candidates including legalization in their platforms. This week they released an awesome Marijuana Law Reform Candidate Packet. The packet encourages candidates to consider adding the issue to their platforms by providing them with important scientific research and statistics related to the legalization of marijuana for both adult and medicinal use and deals with these 7 points:

Polling
 Sixty-four percent of Americans support legalization; including outright majorities of Democrats, Independents, and Republicans (Gallup, 2017).
 Seventy-six percent of Americans oppose federal intervention in state-lawful marijuana programs (Survey USA, 2017).
 Ninety-four percent of Americans support the legalization of medical marijuana (Quinnipiac, 2017).
 Twenty-two percent of Veterans consume marijuana to alleviate symptoms of a physical or mental ailment (American Legion, 2017).

Is America Governable? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

What Happens When Freedom Means Barbarism?

Consider the following proposition. Election hacking. Purges. Arming teachers. School shootings. People dying without basic medicine like insulin. Never retiring. In America, youll always find some significant portion of society in support of such things. Just today, I saw a professor at a major university tweeting that election hacking was just negative campaigning (its notits propaganda, but should I really have to point that out to a professor?)

What happens when a society cant agree that anythingfull stopis wrong? Can such a society function as a democracy?

My observation is this: there appears to be no line left in America. A thingjust onethat people universally agree is wrong. Not one: from political purges to arming teachers. Hence, there are no rules, norms, or codes left (after all they are universal agreements about what is right and wrong). Something went wrong with civilization in this most basic of ways. After all, to be civilized is to agree: there is some level of barbarity no person should ever suffer, a line that must never be crossed (for example, arming teachers). But in America, this line appears not to exist.

Now, at the same time, everywhere we see people fighting to establish norms in America. That is a good thing. #metoo, black lives matter, challengers lining up against authoritarianism. But all this presumes something important: that Americans can agree there is a line. That norms, rules, and codes can exist in a society to begin with. Do you see my point yet?

If there is some significant portion of Americans who think that no rules, norms, codes, or valueslet alone laws or rightscan ever apply to all, what then? Then such a society can never be capable again of democracy, because democracy presumes we can set red lines, doesnt it? After, all in a way, thats the point of democracy. And in that way, a society that doesnt believe in norms, rules, or codes wont be able to govern itselfbecause, essentially, people have decided at the outset that they will not be governed.

So let us think about why it is the case that a significant portion of Americans reject rules, norms, values, or codes absolutely and entirelywhy they simply refuse to accept that there is any brake civilization puts on their appetites, actions, or behaviours, below which people become barbarous. Not me!, they say, I will never agree that this is wrong! You know the type Im sure. Where did this kind of childish extremism come from?

Beginning in the 1980s, a new strain of extremism infected the American political body. It rejected governance flatly.....

C'MON JACINDA ... STOP TREATING US AS IDIOTS "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The best thing St Jacinda could come up with in defending 'her' Minister of Defence against the charge that he used the RNZAF as his personal Uber taxi service was that all the trips constituted 'official business'.    C'mon Jacinda ... you need to do better than that.   No-one but no-one has suggested Mark was using the aircraft for anything else than official business ... if that were the charge proven then she would have had no option but to award him a DCM (don't come Monday).

Nah ... the charge is the inappropriate use of military aircraft in having the RNZAF fly him to/from official business from Hood aerodrome in Masterton close to his home.    There were four such flights in all; one using a B200 King Air fixed-wing aircraft and three using a NH-90 helicopter. 

Mark has access to the Crown limo service used by all Ministers.   He also has a government supplied self-drive car garaged at his home.     In his defense he said using airforce assets was cheaper than using a Crown limo.

Bullshit.    The aircraft were based at Ohakea which means they had to fly from there to Masterton  and thence to their final destination (Woodbourne and Waiouru respectively) and then back to Masterton before returning to Ohakea.      The Aircraft Cost Calculator for the B200 has the hourly operating cost at USD1,909.65.     The figures for the NH90 are all over the place and range from Mr Mark's NZD1,285 (when in a PR last year he described them as "unreliable" and gas guzzling") to the NH Industries entry on Wiki which has the hourly cost (for the High Cabin version) at USD24,000.   I suspect the real figure is somewhere in between.

Gonna be interesting the results of the OIA requests lodged seeking the cost of a Crown limo from Carterton to Wellington airport return and a single airfare Air NZ to Blenheim/Woodbourne return plus a Crown limo from Carterton to Waiouru return measured against the aircraft operating costs.

Mark's Crown limo line defense is arrogant bullshit from an arrogant bullshitter with a hugely inflated sense of his own importance laced with a generous dollop of sense of entitlement.  

And St Jacinda believed him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

His book, The Natural Economic Order, contains truths that are being kept from us even now by those who control the creation of money, and want to hold on to that control.

Genesis Vs Atheism & Paganism Introduction to Theology Jay Dyer (Half) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

7 days of creation and Genesis 1 must be myths, right? Merely Carl Jung style archetypes? Isnt the Bible just like all the other ancient near eastern religions? Didnt monotheism evolve from polytheism? No, no, and no to all. No. In this talk we set our view over against the incoherent meaninglessness of modernity and scientism and paganism all made foolish in Genesis itself.

On the Student Walkouts "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post On the Student Walkouts appeared first on It's Going Down.

The following editorial from the May 1st Anarchist Alliance discusses the mass student walk-outs across the US.

By A, First of May Anarchist Alliance Michigan Collective

Over one million high school students walked out of class on Wednesday, March 14th 2018 in what was the biggest school walk out protests since the Vietnam War. These students have been raised with school shootings being a norm. As they march out of class and into the streets, they defy the police and the school administrations. They defy the whole damn system. They defy the police who confronted them in the streets with the very weapons that are used against them in school shootings. The police who have shot down their brothers and sisters with impunity in and out of school. The police who waited outside while a white supremacist shot up a Florida school. They defy the administration that covered up sexual assault and molestation for decades at Michigan State University. The administrations who called for lockdown drills to keep students from protesting/are now threatening detention and suspension in retaliation. The same administrations who do not stand up against cuts to financial support for poor students. The same administrations who threaten to expel Black student athletes for kneeling during the anthem at sporting events. The same administrations that have allowed overt white supremacists to speak on campuses to further their quest to remove marginalized people from the Earth.

Lets not mince words, these are racist and sexist attacks. The attacks on young people are almost always by violent, young, white men who feel as though the system is failing them. They are being pushed aside as they continue to matter less and less to the billionaires and corporations who have left them and their families behind for cheap labor elsewhere. Anti-racist, anti-patriarchal, and anti-colonialist social struggles continue to move forward and prosper in the face of extreme state repression, a growing far-right, mainstream disapproval, and cold blooded murder. Because of all this, these white men feel as though they are losing their dominance in amerikkkan society (they are, and that is a good thing). So, what better way to reassert your dominance than by holding hundreds of helpless peoples lives in your hands? This is delusional, but so is white power. The attacks usually (obviously) target women and people of color. They cut across communities and happen inside and out of school. Outside of school shootings, the violence these young people face and are opposing is sometimes quick street violence, and sometimes is long term systemic violence....

Update on the Southeast Trans and/or Women Action Camp "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post Update on the Southeast Trans and/or Women Action Camp appeared first on It's Going Down.

What follows is an update on the Southeast Trans and/or Women Action Camp. For more information, check the original call here.

Local community organizers will be hosting a rural and urban direct action camp in so-called Asheville, North Carolina from April 26th-29th. This camp is open to all female, trans, trans women, trans men, gender queer, gender variant, two-spirited, agender, and otherwise non-cis male-identifying people. TWAC is an approach to smashing patriarchy and opposing all forms of oppression through direct action, skill-sharing, and mutual aid for the sake of individual and collective liberation for all. It is our goal to empower those of us who are systematically silenced and oppressed due to socially-constructed gender and racial inequalities, to have our voices be heard and to bring together communities of resistance in spaces that consciously subvert the power dynamics we often experience in cis and male-dominated spaces.

We hope to build power and amplify voices within our community, heal, and strengthen our cultures of resistance.This camp is striving to prioritize the voices of indigenous and black activists and comrades, especially in the south. The relationship between environmental movements and transformative racial and transgender justice is crucial and something that we will continue to discuss.

This four-day camp will offer workshops and discussions on a wide range of topics including: urban and rural direct action, earth-skills, art & activism, conflict resolution, botany, tree climbing, anti-fascist and anti-racist organizing, prisoner support, DIY medicine and first-aid, herbalism, caucuses and much more! The camp will be held on a piece of land in the mountains about 30 minutes from Asheville. We have not yet disclosed the exact location publicly for the sake of security, but once you complete the registration form, you will receive email updates on how to get to camp. Parking on the land is limited, so try to carpool if possible. We will be setting up a rideshare board soon to help folks coordinate. It will be springtime, but could still get chilly at night, so bring extra layers!

Also, keep in mind the potential for rain, so bring a raincoat and boots to stay dry, and maybe an extra tarp. We also encourage folks to bring headlamps/flashlights, plate/cup/utensils, toilet paper and come prepared to pack-out any trash you may have. If you are able to bring extra...

PSYCHO MILT WILL BE PLEASED ... OR PERHAPS NOT "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

With the announcement by the Greens that as they can no longer ask questions in the House holding the government to account they are gifting National all of their Question Time allocation for them to do as they think fit.

A move of this sort would have been described by Sir Humphrey as 'very courageous'.     I particularly like the comment posted on The Daily Blog (mouthpiece for the Greens)  which has it that a Labour Party source greeted the news with "are you fu****g stoned".

This is unprecedented in NZ politics.   A political party with MPs holding ministerial warrants and having signed a support agreement with the government, siding with the opposition to embarrass the government of which it is a member.    

Clearly the Youthgate affair and Winston's determination to pursue a free-trade agreement with the Russians are the straws that have broken the camel's back.    This ain't 'trouble t Mill' territory.   This is a full blown clusterfu*k that could bring the government down.

MATT DRUDGE Reminds Us All Why Robert Mueller Is Hardly A Saint "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For months, The Gateway Pundit has been reporting on Special Counsel Robert Muellers flaws exhibited in both the investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion during the 2016 presidential election and his personal track record as an attorney.

On Saturday evening, media icon Matt Drudge reminded us all why Mueller is hardly a saint.

According to Los Angeles Times reporter David Willman, Muellers tenacious yet linear approach to evaluating evidence led him to fumble the biggest U.S. terrorism investigation since 9/11.

The case? Mueller personally oversaw the FBIs investigation into the 2001 anthrax letter attacks that took five lives and infected 17 other people.

The Federalist reported:

The investigators hypothesized that the attacker was a lonely American who had wanted to kill people with anthrax for some undefined time period, but then became mission oriented following 9/11 and immediately prepared and mailed the deadly spores while pretending to be a Muslim.

Muellers FBI honed in on Steven Hatfill as the culprit a flag-waving American, who had served in the Army, then dedicated himself to protecting America from bioterrorist threats by working in the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.

There was no direct link from Hatfill to the attacks, by the FBIs own admission, and the bureau never charged Hatfill. The FBI did however spy on, follow, and harass him non-stop...

10 Essential Rules For Living A Happy Life "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Do you ever feel stuck in negativity? Or are you one of those happy-go-lucky types who see the silver lining in every situation? If youre in the latter category, high five to you, friend!

When I find myself stuck in a rut, I reach for a dose of gratitude. I try to focus on the simple things in my life that bring me joy, like the feeling of freshly dried towels or a hug from my husband.

Whatever happiness is to you, these ten strategies are sure to inspire greater happiness and well-being starting today!

See the light in people

People may do things which frustrate, hurt or anger you, or they may have nothing in common with you at all, but you can choose to see beyond these external factors and focus on the common humanity and mortality you both share. You are both souls in human bodies trying to navigate the world at this point in time in the best way you know how. Strive to accept and forgive other people whenever you can.

Be led by joy, not fear

So many people make decisions based on their fears, rather than following their intuition, interests, and passions. You are a once-in-a-humankind combination of talents and quirks and there will never again be anyone like you. When you make decisions based on what you enjoy and what feels right with your soul, you light up and the whole world benefits.

Open your mind to new possibilities and leave room for surprises

So much can happen in a single day, you could meet the right person, stumble across a new opportunity, come up with a life-changing idea, move jobs, move houses or move countries.

While its worthwhile clarifying your desires and making plans, keep a little room in your heart and mind for the unexpected, things might not go to plan, and that might be the best possible outcome.

Give up the word should

So much of our unhappiness stems from feeling like we are not living up to the standard definition of success, the status quo, media standards, and expectations or that life and other people are not living up to our expectations of how things should be. If we let go of preconceived notions about what we should be doing with our lives, and give up our rigid expectations of how other people should act, we will instantly become freer and happier.

Let your emotions be your guide, but not your identity

When people experience strong negative emotions like anger, jealousy or pain, they usually do one of two things, bury their emotions deep in their subconscious, or get so caught up in their emotions that they are consumed by them and adopt them as part of their ongoing identity.

Neither choice is healthy, instead, when a strong negative emotion arises, lea...

The Brain Puts the Memories Warehouse in Order While We Sleep "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Submitted via IRC for Bytram

During the hours of sleep the memory performs a cleaning shift. A study led by a Spanish scientist at the University of Cambridge reveals that when we sleep, the neural connections that collect important information are strengthened and those created from irrelevant data are weakened until they get lost.

Throughout the day, people retain a lot of information. The brain creates or modifies the neural connections from these data, elaborating memories. But most of the information we receive is irrelevant and it does not make sense to keep it. In such a case, the brain would be overloaded.

So far there have been two hypotheses about how the sleeping brain modifies the neural connections created throughout the day: while one of them argues that all of them are reinforced during sleep hours, the other maintains that their number is reduced.

[...] According to the expert, in the event that all these links were reinforced equally during sleep, the brain would be saturated by an extreme overexcitement of the nervous system.

In the study, published in the Neuron journal, the researchers stimulated the neuronal connections of mice subjected to a type of anesthesia that achieves a brain state similar to the slow wave sleep phase in humans.

[...] The results show that during slow wave sleep, the largest connections are maintained while the smaller ones are lost. This brain mechanism improves the signal-to-noise ratio -- important information remains and the dispensable is discarded -- and allows the storage of various types of information from one day to the next without losing the previous data. That is, those that have already been considered relevant are kept in that state without having to reinforce them. According to Gonzlez Rueda, the brain "puts order" during the hours of sleep, discarding the weakest connections to ensure stronger and consolidated memories.

From Cop Car Data Terminal, To Retro Computer "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The custom Windows install could be bypassed with a DOS prompt for some period demoscene action, but [Trammell] wanted more. The 386SX wasnt even quick when it was new, and this computer deserved the power of a BeagleBone! A custom cape was created on a prototyping cape to interface with the MDT9100 header carrying both keyboard and video. A bit of detective work revealed the display to be a 640480 pixel mono VGA. The Bones LVDS output can drive VGA through a resistor ladder DAC with the aid of an appropriate device tree overlay. The keyboard was then taken care of with a Teensy working as a USB device, resulting in a working Linux computer in the shell of an MDT9100.

Its always good to see old technology brought up to date. Amusingly a couple of years ago we reported on the death of VGA, but retro projects like this one mean itll be a long time before weve heard the last of it.

Buckle Up - It's About to Get Real!

Source: Rumor Mill News | By Dquixote1217

Folks, it's about to get real. It is about to hit the fan like nothing you have ever seen before. Forget the cries of Chaos, Russia! Russia! Russia!, porn stars and the idiotic, yet entirely predictable, claims by the left and the guilty (McCabe and Brennar, for example) that Trump caused former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to be fired. Utter hogwash and shiiny objects meant to distract you from what is coming.

The IG Report is imminent and those in the know are saying that it will be "explosive". A bombshell that will rock the political world, the DOJ and the deep state. And you can pretty much count on a second special counsel being appointed in the very near future. Andrew McCabe, who was fired upon the recommendations of the entirely independent Inspector General and the FBI's own Office of Professional Responsibility - both of which are beyond Trump's reach, btw - is just the tip of the iceberg. He leaked, he lied and his pension died. He also committed a number of crimes, as did many others - and those crimes are going to be uncovered and revealed to one an all - including the Trump-hating media and the Trump-hating Democrats who continue to be in denial.

When all is said and done, heads will roll and prison cells will be filled - and the list of names that may be snared in the web of deceit and corruption is long and impressive: Comey, Lynch, Weinstein, Strozk, Page, Brennan, Clapper, Rosenstein, Holder, Biden, Obama and yes, Hillary Clinton. Trust me on this one. I will be back later to tell you "I told you so" to all the doubters. Meanwhile, stay tuned to news outlets that tell you what is really happening. Such as Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs. Partisan no doubt, but also spot on.

I will leave you with this little tidbit: Reports are that McCabe threatened that if he went down he was going to take "everyone" with him. Do ya think he might have emphasized that when he had his last minute meeting with Rosenstein to beg to keep his retirement? Do ya think that maybe that might have been part of the reason that AG Sessions took until the eleventh hour to make his decision to fire McCabe? Hmmmm . . . .

Q Anon Update -- March 17, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Q Update for March 17, 2018

MARCH 17, 2018

Source: STARSHIP EARTH: THE BIG PICTURE



The Q-Anon Phenomenon continues to blaze trails into the consciousness of America and the world. They aim to keep patriots up to date on current developments, to offer cautions, and to educate regarding historical background.

As I see it, the Q team is a brilliant idea to engage patriots and allow them to participate in the take-down, while protecting them and enabling them to think for themselves beyond the treasonous headlines proffered by the lamestream propagandists.

It also encourages them to find their way around the Internet, seeking out new updates and analyses from awakened independent media sources. Americans are getting a well-rounded education on so many aspects of the occult they never dreamed played a role in their current situation. Theyre getting the picture, and they are taking action, too. The movement is growing.

The more Americans are aware of the reality, the less chaos there will be when the really big news is announced. Time is running out. The drowsy ones cant be coddled and insulated forever.

Today Q said

They think you are STUPID.
They think you will follow the STARS.
They openly call you SHEEP/CATTLE.
THERE WILL COME A TIME NONE OF THEM WILL BE ABLE TO WALK DOWN THE STREET.
BIGGEST FEAR.
PUBLIC AWAKENING.

A Simple Model for Why the Greenhouse Effect Warms the Surface "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


While working on the answers to Judge Alsop's second question a very simple model that explains what is happening occurred to Eli about the third,

3.  What is the mechanism by which infrared radiation trapped by CO2 in the atmosphere is turned into heat and finds its way back to sea level?
The thought goes back to the early days of thermodynamics when it was realized that heat flows and interrupting or slowing a flow while maintaining constant delivery rates requires increasing the pressure head of the pump

Heat from the Sun flows to the Earth's surface at a constant rate determined by its ~6000 K black body temperature.  The Earth's surface transforms the visible light from the sun into ~290 K IR emission which escapes to space.  The flow of energy from the Sun to the Earth has to EXACTLY (them's Nikolov caps folks) match the flow of energy from the Earth to space.

Greenhouse gases function as a regulating valve.  If their concentration increases, the valve restricts the energy flow and the Surface has to pump harder to maintain the flow.  If the concentrations decrease the pressure the pump is delivering decreases.  

The operating mechanism of the valve is simple. The higher the mixing ratio (concentration) of greenhouse gases, the more absorbing the atmosphere is at frequencies that the greenhouse gases can absorb. The optical density of the atmosphere at those frequencies sets the level at which each greenhouse gas can emit to space without being re-adsorbed, i.e. it sets the level below which emission is blocked.  The rate of emission from the level at which the greenhouse gas IR emissions can reach space thus rises with concentration.  Since the temperature decreases with altitude, the higher the effective level, the slower the emission, the more the valve closes.

OK, make a copy of this and take it to your festive....

As a race, we have a lot to learn, and a lot to forget. The brainwashing and limiting beliefs will fall by the wayside as we absorb new ideas in science, mathematics, history, philosophy, religion, spirituality, medicine, and every topic under the sun.

We have obtained much from off-planet races, and most of it has probably not reached the public but we have been allowed a few morsels of new technology when it has served the controllers.

Over the years there were transistors, microchips, fiber optics, Lexan (bullet-proof glass), Kevlar and other products. Microwaves, touch-screens, lasers and high-tech weapons have found their way into our lives; some for good, some for ill. It seems most things that can be a gift can also be weaponized.

A technology that is still in its infancy by most Earthly standards is having remarkable results for healing Humans. It may have a way to go to be fully understood, but if it works, why not implement it? There is much healing to be done on this planet.

I know people who have had sessions in Tachyon Chambers and their experience was quite remarkable according to them; perhaps otherworldly and an inner journey of sorts. Its probable that each of us may experience it uniquely since it works on our energy body which then affects us in the physical, if I understand the concept.

Imminently we will forget that we had to undergo surgeries, drug therapy, and other horrific and invasive treatments to heal our physical or etheric bodies and minds. Well get energetic tuneups from time to time and be fully harmonized and humming along nicely.

The real 'Russia collusion' story - a chronicle "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In a textbook example of denial and projection, Trump foes in and out of government wove a sinister yarn meant to take him down. Barack Obama keeps a close watch on his emotions. "I loved Spock," he wrote in February 2015 in a presidential statement eulogizing Leonard Nimoy. Growing up in Hawaii, the young man who would later be called "No-Drama Obama" felt a special affinity for the Vulcan first officer of the U.S.S. Enterprise. "Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy," the eulogy continued. "Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed." It is the rare occasion when Obama lets his Spock mask slip. But November 2, 2016, was just such a moment. Six days before the presidential election, when addressing the Congressional Black Caucus, he stressed that the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, threatened hard-won achievements of blacks: tolerance, justice, good schools, ending mass incarceration - even democracy itself. "There is one candidate who will advance those things," he said, his voice swelling with emotion. "And there's another candidate whose defining principle, the central theme of his candidacy, is opposition to all that we've done."

The gloves are off.

President Trump unleashed on Special Counsel Robert Mueller Saturday evening. 

Earlier Saturday morning, President Trumps lawyer John Dowd told the Daily Beast its time for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to shut down the Mueller witch hunt.

I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabes boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier, Dowd told The Daily Beast.

Later Saturday evening, President Trump warned Mueller and hammered Crooked Hillary and her fake dossier.

President Trump tweeted: The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!

On February 2nd, the House Intel Committee released their declassified 4-page FISA memo outlining abuses of surveillance by Obamas DOJ and FBI.

Defamation Suits and Fake News "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Lately people targeted by right-wing conspiracy buffs have been taking to the courts to fight back. The latest is Brennan Gilmore, a former U.S. Foreign Service officer who was filming the protests in Charlottesvill on August 12, when James Alex Fields rammed his car into a group of protesters, injuring several and killing Heather Heyer:

When Gilmores video circulated in the media, Alex Jones immediately claimed he was a deep state shill and CIA asset who in fact spearheaded Fields attack. He published pieces that described the violence in Charlottesville as a staged act, one executed by left-wing political operatives and financed by George Soros. In one rant, Jones claimed, They got State Department and high-level CIA. One guy is paid 320,000 a year on the payroll of Soros. He doesnt just get money from Soros, he personally is paid 320 a year, and then he is thereCIA, State Departmentand he is on the news. And when people pointed out who he was, they took his name of the State Department website and stuff, but Google has all the [screen]shots of it. I mean its like WOW, WOWCIA? Your senior guys?

The website Gateway Pundit was all in, too: The random Charlottesville observer who was interviewed by MSNBC and liberal outlets turns out to be a deep state shill with links to George Soros. It looks like the State Department was involved in Charlottesville rioting and is trying to cover it up. But after Deep State got caught they are trying to erase this guy from their records.

As the Gilmore complaint notes, Jones and Gateway Pundit quickly mobilized their army of followers to launch a campaign of harassment and threats against Mr. Gilmore. They published the addresses of Gilmore and his parents online, and he began to be inundated with hate mail, death threats, and hacking attempts. White powder was sent to his home.(Gilmore says the police ultimately told him the powder was harmless.)

The suit, filed by Georgetown Laws Civil Rights Clinic names Jones, InfoWars, Gateway Pundit owner Jim Hoft, reporter Lee Stranahan, former Republican Rep. Allen West of Florida, and others who disseminated such stories. Gilmore seeks a jury trial and damages, and he says he will not accept a cash settlement from Jones, who has been known to pay off litigants or just retract his false stories.
So what are we to make of this? On the one hand there is no legal right to publish personal attacks you know to be false. You can't just say with no evidence that private citizens with cameras are CIA agents and on the payroll of George Soros; making up stuff and spreading it as fact is not protected by the First Amendment. But what if Jones counters that he is just an entertainer and nev...

Chet Raymo, Retirement "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 
 Retirement
by Chet Raymo

    "Farewell, thou busy world! And may
    We never meet again!
    Here I can eat and sleep and pray,
    And do more good in one short day
    Than he who his whole age outwears
    Upon the most conspicuous theatres,
    Where naught but vanity and vice do reign."

"The first verse from a poem called "The Retirement" by Charles Cotton (1630-1687), a friend of Izaak Walton, about his private fishing retreat on the river Dove. The poem was incorporated into Walton's "The Compleat Angler."

And what do I make of it, now, in retirement? All these hours on hand to eat, sleep and pray all I want? "Good God! How sweet are all things here!" enthuses Cotton, "How beautiful the fields appear!...How happy here's our leisure!...How innocent our pleasure!"

Yes? No?

As I've mentioned, I've been rummaging lately in the junk room upstairs, which has been accumulating the intellectual detritus of my life for 50 years. It seems from the accumulated evidence that I always had sufficient hours on hand to eat, sleep and pray, if by prayer one means paying attention.

I have mixed feelings about retirement. On the one hand I have all these hours of the day to use as I want, to read and walk and meditate. On the other hand, I miss the stimulation of the unending buzz. It is clear as I rummage through the upstairs archive that I got more done that was spiritually and intellectually rewarding...

If I get desperate about this mouse, he will hide from me and I will do nothing else in life but hunt him. Therefore, I put the most important books in a safe place and let him gnaw some others.

Dear Judge Alsop: The Quantum Interlude "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


In Part I, the Spectroscopic Basis, Eli looked at measurements of the O2, N2 and CO2 spectra and found that the CO2 is absorption is many times stronger than the O2, and N2 absorption even taking into acount the much higher density of the diatomics .  Strong enough that one can neglect the absorption of the other two molecules as a practical matter, however let the Bunny not stop there but go on to the quantum basis of all this trying not to get either too mathematical or too esoteric (esoteric comes in Part III:  Putting the Pressure On where the surprises are).  Eli will attempt to be correct, but not perfect and certainly not complete, that is a two semester course.

Starting back with neolithic quantum physics, let us now look at the emission spectrum of a blackbody.  We can treat the surface of the Earth as one in the IR with unit emissivity (OK ice is a bit different but it is a lot colder so it emits a lot less) and look at the spectrum.we would expect at 290 K

Scienctific Study Reveals What Complaining Actually Does to the Human Brain "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Quit whining. The truth is nobody likes to hear it, and its bad for you.

A half hour of complaining every day physically damages a persons brain, according to research from Stanford University. Whether youre the one griping or youre the one listening, exposure to negativity peels back neurons in the hippocampusthe part of the brain used for problem-solving and cognitive function. Over time, complaining becomes a habit. If youre surrounded by complainers, then youre more likely become one.

As a society, we complain too much, but more importantly we dont complain effectively, says Guy Winch, Ph.D., and author of The Squeaky Wheel. Weve lost a sense of what complaining is for; instead, we use it as an exercise for venting and that has consequences.

A half hour of complaining every day physically damages a persons brain.

Winch explains venting causes two problems. Research has found that 95% of consumers who have a problem with a product dont complain to the company, but they will tell their tale to eight to 16 people, he says. Its unproductive because were not complaining to the people who can resolve our issue.

Venting also floods the bloodstream with cortisol, the stress hormone. We tell ourselves that we need to get it off our chest, but each time we do, we get upset all over again, he adds. We end up 10 to 12 times more aggravated.

Look For Results

What do we do if we have a problem? Winch says complaining the right way may not only create a solution; it can curb anxiety and improve relationships.

Make Sure There Is Purpose

Before you share your woes, have a specific goal in mind, Winch says.

If you are complaining to a company or a person, dont do it until you figure out what you want, he says.

Winch says identifying a purpose has two benefits. First, it helps calm emotions. We all have limited intellectual resources, he says. The more we think about what we want to achieve, the less churning we will do.

Second, it makes the other person better able to help you. If you dont know what you want, the other person may not know how to resolve the situation either, Winch says.

Identifying a purpose is most important when complaining to a spouse, friend, or colleague, says Winch because this is when youre likely to take the least amount of time preparing. This is when things go badly, he says. Dont voice dissatisfaction until youre clear about why youre upset and wh...

Revolving Door by Nancy Ohanian

The Trump White Mad House is still a chaotic mess, in complete turmoil orchestrated my the fool Putin placed there. Supposedly, at least according to the Wall Street Journal John Kelly is staying on-- for now-- as chief of staff. H.R. McMaster, on the other hand, will be replaced as soon as Trump can persuade someone to take the job. This week a West Wing staffer in Seor Trumpanzee's White House was widely quoted saying that "This is the most toxic working environment on the planet... There's no leadership, no trust, no direction and at this point there's very little hope." Other heads on the chopping block-- reputations ruined because of their collaboration with the fascist clown-- include Ben Carson, David Shulkin, Steven Mnuchin, Jeff Sessions, Betsy DeVos, Ryan Zinke and Vanessa Trump, estranged wife of Trumpanzee Jr., and others who have been using taxpayer dollars to live like royalty.

Holy Spirituality within Pine Cone: An Original Idea "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Alan Watts ~ Embrace All Your Feelings

https://youtu.be/-RnafTtXMYI



If we are the fear Monsters we are, all afraid of, and we project our separation fear Monsters out onto our mirror-double Puppet-patsies, then who among us are looking within for Delight Bonding Communion, instead for our Love~existence, the opposite direction we, Authoritarian Centralization Stockholm Syndrome Monster-projectors look to for, our Dark-mistaken Love-source Ascension Light exchanges?

Imagine how we, fake Monster polished Hate-turds turn everything shtf around back ass-ward on ourselves, and we, believe Love-existence defines our personification of Aether, when Love~existence, actually defines the absence of our arrogant Monster-ego Malignant-narcissistic Hate Perspective. So while we people addicts judge ourselves by our apparent good intentions other poor souls have to deal with our Karmic double-message Parent-behaviors.

I am, as everything as anyone else is everything, so from Love~existences Spiritual Sovereign absolute unborn infinite perspective, there is no Monster-puppet Goliath(Collective Monster Consciousness) worth looking to for our Dark-mistaken morphogenetic personification of Aether non-existent Authoritarian Centralization Political chocolate-covered turd speed bumps.

When I turn within and breath the Sweet Beloved Nectar from deep down inside Love~existence, Delight Bonding Communion within Coherent Spirit, replete, timeless, inviolate, indivisible, and invisible changes my Original idea of Love~existence from any impossible mirror-double Mortal-creation Monster-maker, to ONENESS Spirit Conscience of Immortal Love acceptance.

I begin my forgiveness lesson, still hooked on fear monsters, as myself, and come to a zero point grade(judge-less) to see my Love-existence has nothing to do with Monster-mirrors, but has everything to do with my Bully/Bullied perspective, lack of Love~existence. I am as much a Monster Mortal, as anyone else, still addicted to looking outside for nurturing when we, outside Monster-projections, actually define the calculus-absence of Love~existence.

New Study Finds Antidepressants to be Largely Ineffective and Potentially Dangerous "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times 

The first two pharmaceutical antidepressants were clinically introduced in the 1950s, and the conditions they were supposed to treat would have at that time been found in about 50 to 100 persons per million. Today, some 13% of Americans now take antidepressants daily, even though we dont yet understand the long-term effects of most psychotropic drugs.

As research develops, however, it is becoming  clear that the truth about antidepressants is far different from the rosy picture painted by pharmaceutical marketers,and biased or corrupt research journals.

In a recent study conducted at Zurich University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland, researcher Michael P. Hengartner came to the conclusion that, antidepressants are largely ineffective and potentially harmful.

Due to several flaws such as publication and reporting bias, unblinding of outcome assessors, concealment and recoding of serious adverse events, the efficacy of antidepressants is systematically overestimated, and harm is systematically underestimated. ~Michael P. Hengartner, Researcher at Zurich University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland

Remarking on the methodology of the study and the meaning of the statistical results is Peter Simons of Mad in America:

Hengartner questioned why the massive increase in antidepressant prescription rates over the last three decades did not translate into measurable public health benefits in the treatment of depression. Although meta-analyses tend to find a small difference between placebo and antidepressant effect, Hengartner argues that it comes nowhere near the clinically significant threshold of at least 7 points on the Hamilton Depression Scale. Instead, a difference of 1 or 2 points is a meaningless numerical difference that wo...

Does gun reformneed to be a war on masculinity? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Whenever a story about male violence dominates the news, it sets off the same range of discussions about how masculinity may be destroying our society. The aftermath of February's horrific mass shooting in Parkland, Florida has been no different. Now the deadliest school shooting since the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in 2012, Parkland has rightfully reawakened contentious debates around gun control and what we need to do as a nation to prevent more tragedies involving gun violence. But at the same time, an onslaught of think pieces have fingered "toxic masculinity," as the culprit behind America's gun violence epidemic, with some propagating the idea that "the patriarchy" and "white male privilege" promote homicidal behavior. In fact, toxic masculinity has become the scapegoat for just about everything undesirable under the sun, from gun violence to sexual assault to shorter lifespans. But placing overwhelming blame on one sex is precarious territory.

An Open Letter About Sherman Alexie "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Eds. Note: Beneath the letter are links with more info and quotes I am adding, with permission, from Joy Harjo, Janet McAdams, and Susan Power. I will add additional ones as they become public. If you are looking for other Native writers, see the Best Books link.  

February 25, 2018

Dear Readers of American Indians in Children's Literature,

Yesterday, I removed Sherman Alexie's photograph from AICL's gallery of Native writers and illustrators. Since then, I have begun going through the eleven years of AICL posts, making edits to any page that has referenced Alexie or his work.

Based on private conversations I have had, I can no longer let his work sit on AICL without noting that he has hurt other Native writers in overt and subtle ways, including abuse, threats, and humiliation.

I've been studying and writing about children's and young adult books about Native people since the 1990s. There's been so little growth in all those years. Learning of his actions tells me that rather than helping grow the numbers of Native writers who get published, he's undermined that growth.

He's also undermined Native writers and writing in this way: his books feed mainstream expectations.

Alexie's books don't give readers the depth of understanding that they need to know who we are, what our histories have been, what we face on a daily basis, and what gives us the strength to carry on. Far too many people adore him and think that they're hip to Native life because they read his books. If you're one of those people, please set his books aside. Read other Native writers. Don't inadvertently join him in hurting other Native writers.

I understand that several news outlets, including NPR and the New York Times, are working on news articles about him, but that the people who are speaking to the reporters are afraid. I don't know what these news articles will say, when they get published. When I see them, I will link to them, below this letter.

In the first few years of AICL, I promoted Alexie's work, but that tapered off as I saw how little he did to help other Native writers.

To all of you who he has hurt, I apologize. I have no doubt that every time you saw his name mentioned here, it added to the weight you already carry. I'm sorry.

Sincerely,
Debbie Reese
Editor, American Indians in Children's Literature

Update at 4:36 on 2/25/18: I will not publish comments that defend Alexie or that attempt to cast doubt on those he has hurt.

Constitutional Law Professor: Red Flag In McCabe Statement Suggests Comey Perjured Himself (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On Saturday, law Professor Jonathan Turley told CNN that he believes the termination of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe suggests then-FBI Director James Comey lied to Congressional investigators, while under oath, about leaking information to the media.  

Law & Crime report:

After briefly discussing McCabes potential liability for allegedly misleading investigators, the liberal law professor shifted gears and started discussing how Comey fits into all of the drama and intrigue.

Turley noted, This could easily spin further out of control. There was one line in the case statement last night that I immediately flagged. Because he said that he had authority to do this and he conferred with the directorthe director at the time was James Comey. Turley continued:

Now, the problem there is that James Comey said under oath that he never leaked information and never approved a leak. So, if the Inspector General believes this was a leak to the media, it raises serious questions about Comeys previous testimony and could get him into serious trouble.

On Friday evening, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe on the recommendation of FBI disciplinary officials.

Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor including under oath on multiple occasions, Sessions said in a statement.

Below is a comparison of Comeys 2017 testimony and McCabes statement on the subject of leaking.

"My legs got weak, and my heart was beating fast," the Rocky Point High School senior told Newsday later on. Just hours after dozens of Rocky Point students joined the national walkout for stricter gun control, Pinkenburg stood before the school board's health and safety committee and told them there shouldn't be armed guards in school, the paper reported. With that, a man sporting a bandana who Pinkenburg said he didn't know asked him to return to the front of the room, Newsday said - and cellphone video recorded what happened next.

Students from Universities of California call on regents to divest from Israeli human rights abuses "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Yesterday, students, campus workers, and allies from across the University of California system were in Los Angeles to call on the UC Regents to listen to student voices and divest university funds from corporations that profit from human rights abuses against the Palestinian people. Following the UC Regents' signing of the United Nations' Principles for Responsible Investments in 2014 and clear votes in support of divestment by the University of California Student Association (UCSA), UC Graduate Student Worker Union (UAW 2865), and Student Governments on eight out of nine UC campuses, students are demanding the UC Regents ensure that the UCs reflect the values we all hold dear: freedom, justice, and equality. The UCs are invested in the following corporations profiting from rights abuses, as documented by reputable human rights organizations: Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Caterpillar, Cemex, HP, General Electric, 3M, Perrigo Company, Atlas Copco, Ford and Hyundai. Lockheed Martin, for example, manufactures Apache helicopters that have killed Palestinian civilians, including children, and Caterpillar supplies bulldozers to the Israeli military to demolish the homes of Palestinian families to make way for illegal Israeli settlements. Instead of investing in corporations that harm communities, universities should be investing in corporations that do business ethically.

Control a Swarm of RC Vehicles with ESP8266 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Over at RCgroups, user [Cesco] has shared a very interesting project which uses the ever-popular ESP8266 as both a transmitter and receiver for RC vehicles. Interestingly, this code makes use of the ESP-Now protocol, which allows devices to create a mesh network without the overhead of full-blown WiFi. According to the Espressif documentation, this mode is akin to the low-power 2.4GHz communication used in wireless mice and keyboards, and is designed specifically for persistent, peer-to-peer connectivity.

Switching an ESP8266 between being a transmitter or receiver is as easy as commenting out a line in the source code and reflashing the firmware. One transmitter (referred to as the server in the source code) can command eight receiving ESP8266s simultaneously. [Cesco] specifically uses the example of long-range aircraft flying in formation; only coming out of the mesh network when its time to manually land each one.

[Cesco] has done experiments using both land and air vehicles. He shows off a very hefty looking tracked rover, as well as a quickly knocked together quadcopter. He warns the quadcopter flies like a wet sponge, but it does indeed fly with the ESP...

Are You in the 1% of the Population that is Genetically of Higher Frequency? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Have you ever felt that you were somehow different from everyone else around you? Maybe, no matter how hard you try to better yourself, you just cant get there, and if that is the case, you may be the genetic 1% of the population living on a higher frequency.

Those who are considered to be at a higher frequency may be more intuitive, more sensitive, and be more attuned to their souls than to their physical body. Of course, there may be days where it can become frustrating to feel as though you are living only inside of your mind, rather than your body, however, there are many perks to being on a higher frequency.

1. You have a higher perception of your senses. Not only are you more intuitive, but you also may be able to switch on your higher senses like clairvoyance and clairaudience.

2. When you are living on a higher frequency, you have access to wisdom and information that most are unable to access, because they are only using the rational aspects of their mind.

3. Meditation, out of body experiences, and lucid dreaming come more naturally to you.

4. Have you ever noticed that you have a general understanding of many things, like they just intuitively make sense, without much effort? This is yet another amazing trait you can thank your higher frequency for.

5. Others seem to be comforted easily by you and seem to have a change in demeanor when they are around you, versus being around the rest of the world.

6. Negative people usually expose themselves and flee within a short time in your presence, because they cant handle your positivity and love.

7. You are able to notice patterns and synchronicities where others arent.

8. You are more self-aware, and understand the goings-on of your mind, body, and soul. While others may not notice when something is off inside of their body, you do, because you are very aware of yourself.

9. You dont take yourself too seriously.

10. No matter how frustrated or sad you may be, you can put on a smile and fake it until you make it.

11. You are a nurturer, of all people, including yourself.

12. People find it easy to open themselves up to you, and to share things with you that they would not otherwise share.

If the majority of the above-listed traits apply to you, then you are most likely running on a higher vibration. Of course, you have probably known all along that there was something special about you. And while you may feel un...

Leaker Adam Schiff Hits Panic Button After Trumps Lawyer Calls For Mueller Witch Hunt to Be Shut Down "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired dirty cop Andrew McCabe late Friday evening just days before his scheduled retirement and the fake news media lost their minds.

The Deep State and Democrats are rattled after AG Sessions dropped the hammer on McCabe and fired the FBI Deputy Director late Friday evening.

The Daily Beast spoke with Trumps personal attorney John Dowd on Saturday morning. Dowd told the Daily Beast that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should end Muellers investigation.

Leaker Adam Schiff hit the panic button after Trumps lawyer called for the witch hunt to be shut down.

Attorney John Dowd called for the end of the Trump-Russia witch hunt:

I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabes boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier, Dowd told The Daily Beast.

Ranking member of the House Intel Committee Adam Schiff (D-CA) went into overdrive and called Dowds move obstruction of justice.

Schiff then called on other members of Congress to condemn the flagrant abuse of power.

Schiff tweeted: The President, through his lawyer, called on DOJ to end Mueller probe. Obstruction of justice is no less a threat to our democracy when done in the open than behind closed doors. Every representative should condemn this flagrant abuse of power or stop pretending devotion to duty.

Northern Pride beat PNG Hunters 26-14 in Intrust Super Cup round 2 match "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

THE Northern Pride have defied the punters to open their 2018 account with a 26-14 win over PNG Hunters at Barlow Park.

Despite missing four of their best including Todd Carney in the Round 2 Intrust Super Cup match on Saturday night, the home side raced to an 18-0 lead shortly after halftime before surviving an attempted comeback from the visitors.

Both sides made multiple errors in a sloppy opening 20 minutes, but the Pride spent much of it camped on the attack after Hunters fullback Adex Wera twice fumbled cleaning up grubber kicks.

Shawn Bowen and Murray Taulagi both missed chances to get the home side on the board, bundled into touch in either corner before they finally capitalised.

Enari Tuala made a 50m break down the right side before the ball went coast-to-coast on the next play for left winger Bowen to score in the 18th minute.


The following set the Hunters tried to keep a 40/20 attempt in play, putting makeshift fullback Willie Minoga under huge pressure from Pride centre Brett Anderson.

It forced another error and the Bowen dived on the crumbs for his second try.

Clifford made no mistake from out wide once again and remarkably the Pride took a 14-0 lead into halftime.

They invited the visitors back in it on the first tackle with a penalty for an incorrect play the ball and the Hunters looked to have scored from a kick but were called back for off-side.

On the back of that set, the Pride increased their lead when Murray Taulagi crashed over in the 45th minute.


It became a little less steeper eight minutes later when Boas took advantage of three consecutive sets in attack to dance through and score under the posts.

The Pride halted the momentum despite kicking out on the full from the corresponding restart, launching two attacking raids and it was Nathan Wales who sealed the game with a 68th minute try.

Butler Morris scored a consolation try for the Hunters in the 75th minute before Clifford....

Have you ever had the odd feeling that maybe someone was talking about you or thinking about you? Surely, we have all experienced these peculiar moments on some level but have you ever really stopped to think about them?

To me, these moments are psychic experiences. I believe we are all psychic on some level and whether you are able to see or sense who is thinking of you may vary. If you have experienced any of the following things you have had psychic experiences before.

Psychic experiences come in many different forms. The form we are going over is a more emotional level. You see, this world is made up of energy as are we. The things we feel and think are energetically charged and if we focus deeply enough, there are no limits to our consciousness.

7 Psychic Signs Someone Might Have You On Their Mind:

1. Finding a white feather

White feathers are a sign that we need to find someone we have lost. It is a message from that person that they are thinking of us. This is a message from the afterlife and while we cannot send it back we can embrace it.

2. Feeling overwhelming unexpected emotions

The emotions associated with the things people are thinking about you can be projected onto you if you are energetically open. The more open your aura is the more emotions you may experience of this kind. When positive emotions come your way it can be amazing but if the feelings are negative it can take a serious toll on you.

3. Senses in your dreams

People who think of us often are able to influence our dreams if their thoughts and energies are strong enough. For instance, if someone you have positive emotions for is thinking of you and wondering how to tell you something you may figure it out beforehand in a dream. The universe works in mysterious ways.

4. Someone coming to mind out of nowhere

If you think of someone out of nowhere they are likely also thinking of you. This happens because our subconscious is aware of their thoughts. Everything in this world is connected these messages can travel far and wide.

5. Random twitching or itching of the eye

Sure, sometimes this happens for no reason at all or because our eyes are irritated but if you experience this out of nowhere and emotion is attached to it someone is thinking about you. Depending on the emotion it provokes will tell you whether the thought was negative or positive but usually, with this kind of thing, it is negative. This can be one or both eyes.

Jaw-dropping: Illegal alien acquitted of murdering Kate Steinle is suing feds for 'vindictive prosecution' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, the illegal alien acquitted last year of murdering 32-year-old Kate Steinle in July 2015, has sued the federal government, demanding that it produce documents "pertaining to vindictive prosecution and collusion" with the state government in its prosecution against him. In November, a San Francisco jury found Garcia-Zarate not guilty of murdering Steinle, agreeing that although he had the gun from which the fatal shot was fired, the discharge could have been accidental. The jury did convict Garcia-Zarate of felony possession of a weapon. He had seven previous felony convictions and had been deported five times before finding "sanctuary" on the streets of San Francisco, a noted "sanctuary city."

James Stephenson, News Editor, BBC News and Current Affairs, on the BBC's Telford coverage (again) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


James Stephenson

So, this week's Newswatch with Samira Ahmed carried the BBC's second big interview of the day with James Stephenson, News Editor, BBC News and Current Affairs, about the BBC's coverage/lack of coverage of the Telford Muslim grooming gangs scandal. 

How did this one go?

Well, I think Samira Ahmed did a decent job. I did wonder if she or someone in her Newswatch team has been reading this blog. She was right in there with that "15 second read" point about Tuesday night's fleeting mention on the story on the BBC's News at Ten, momentarily putting Mr. Stephenson off his stride. 

And it was interesting to hear from Samira Ahmed that the BBC has received "hundreds of complaints" about the BBC's Telford coverage - a sign, I think, of the scale of the public's disgust at the BBC over this and why the News Editor of BBC News and Current Affairs felt the need to go on both Feedback and Newswatch on the same day to defend the Corporation's honour. 

In that light I doubt that his complacent "No, I think we are doing the right thing" line will have gone down too well with viewers.

ExxonMobil PNG Ltd continue providing Equake relief assistance "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Supporting the restoration of health facilities in the Highlands for the recovery of the communities is one of the ways that ExxonMobil PNG is supporting the nations relief efforts following the devastation of the earthquake on Feb 26.

ExxonMobil PNG managing director Andrew Barry said, Several of the health centers in the communities near our Hides Gas Conditioning Plant have been damaged or have been displaced following the earthquake. In addition to assisting with delivering critical medical kits, we are helping with assessments and providing logistics support to the health workers, as relief agencies work to re-establish health services in affected communities.
Meanwhile, deliveries of food, water supplies, tarpaulins for shelter as well as medical and hygiene kits continue for communities across the Highlands including Kutubu in the Southern Highlands, Hulia, Tari, Hayapuga and Komo in the Hela Province and Huiya in Western Province. ExxonMobil PNG has so far delivered over 20 tons of food and water, over 200 tarpaulins and 35 hygiene kits in addition to support for relief agencies that require transport for their workers to affected areas.
For the longer term, ExxonMobil PNG is planning to support the re-establishment of food gardens in a number of its project area communities, with its partners from the ANU Enterprise (ANUE), through its existing community livelihoods improvement program.
Similar to healthcare, the re-establishment of food supplies for the community here is going to be important in the following weeks and months. Our ANUE partners have indicated they will be looking to get back into the field shortly to help address the critical need to re-establish food gardens in communities near our facilities, said Barry.
We have been working with ExxonMobil PNG and target communities in the Hides area since operations began in 2014 to address food security, vulnerabilities and income generation. To support the restoration of communities recovering from the earthquake, our teams are currently preparing to get into the field to assist them with initial planting materials so that they will be able to grow their own food again, ANUE Project Manager Owen Hughes said.
Plans by ANUE include issuing to some 2,500 families quick-growing corn seed that can be harvested within 100 days of planting, and the purchase and distribution of vegetative cuttings for longer-term staples like sweet potato and cassava. ANUE will also be providing garden tools for people to cultivate...

Judge enters not guilty plea for alleged Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Judge enters not guilty plea for alleged Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz |14 March 2018 | A judge entered a plea of not guilty on Nikolas Cruz's behalf as the teen was arraigned Wednesday in last month's massacre at a South Florida high school -- on the same day students across the country walked out of class to demand stricter gun laws because of the killings. A Broward County grand jury last week indicted the [alleged] 19-year-old gunman on 17 counts of premeditated murder in the first degree and 17 counts of attempted murder in the first degree. Wednesday's plea in a Fort Lauderdale court came after Cruz's defense attorney told the judge that the teen was standing mute to the charges -- meaning he was declining to enter a plea.

Flying crazy air: What's going on with airline travel? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The friendly skies are starting to sound downright dangerous. In March alone, stories of rape, fistfights and dead beloved pets have dominated national headlines. And it seems no airline is immune. United, Southwest, American and Alaska Airlines are just a few of the carriers scrambling to explain the behavior of crew members. And tales of passengers gone wild can often be even more harrowing. In a recent survey of airplane crew members, 67 percent of respondents said they have witnessed passengers behaving aggressively or violently toward each other, and 10 percent have experienced firsthand passenger-initiated violence. But it's not just the flyers acting out. Things have gotten so bad with their employees, United just rolled out a compassion training program aimed at teaching employees how to be caring, safe, dependable and efficient. This new system will require around 30,000 customer-facing crew members to attend a four-hour training session to ensure all safety standards are met "with a smile."

Parkland High School Activists Take Their Anti-Gun Rights Message to UAE Where Flogging and Stoning Still Legal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Parkland High School student activists took their message abroad this week to the United Arab Emirates.

The students lectured the Muslim nation on gun laws in the United States.


Gulf News

Maybe the students should have done their research before they decided to lecture against US laws in the UAE.

The UAE does not have democratically elected institutions and citizens do not have the right to change their government or to form political parties.

Flogging and stoning are legal forms of judicial punishment in the UAE due to Sharia courts.

The UAE also discriminates based on gender, sexual identity and sexual orientation.

But the countrys leaders do allow uninformed US kids to come lecture on gun ownership in the US.

The Associated Press reported:

Student survivors of the worst high school shooting in U.S. history took their message abroad for the first time on Saturday, calling for greater gun safety measures and sharing with educational professionals from around the world their frightening experience.

The Feb. 14 attack in Florida killed 17 people, 14 of them students, becoming one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. The attack was carried out by a former student wielding an assault-style rifle who strode into one of the school buildings and opened fire.

Its so important to be educated, and to be educated in a productive sense is to feel safe at school, Suzanna Barna, 17, said. No child should ever have to go through what we did.

UK Bans a Video Game for the First Time in 10 Years "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The UK's Video Standards Council Rating Board has refused to issue a UK Certificate of Classification (archive) for the JRPG game Omega Labyrinth Z, due to it "clearly [promoting] the sexualisation of children". The publisher's appeal of the decision was rejected. This is the first game to be banned in the UK since Manhunt 2, which was initially refused classification by the British Board of Film Classification, but eventually classified "18" after censorship, a second refusal, and an appeal.:

The game is explicit in its setting within a "school" environment and the majority of the characters are young girls - one child is referred to as being a "first year" student and is seen holding a teddy bear. The game clearly promotes the sexualisation of children via the sexual interaction between the game player and the female characters. The style of the game is such that it will attract an audience below the age of 18.

There is a serious danger that impressionable people, i.e. children and young people viewing the game would conclude that the sexual activity represented normal sexual behaviour. There is a constant theme of sexual innuendo and activity throughout the game that suggests behaviour likely to normalise sexual activity towards children. As a means of reward gained by successfully navigating the game, the player has the means to sexually stimulate the female characters by using either a hand held remote device or touch screen software.

The VSC Rating Board believes this content in a game, which would have strong appeal to non-adult players, is an issue which would be unacceptable to the majority of UK consumers and, more importantly, has the potential to be significantly harmful in terms of the social and moral development of younger people in particular.

Omega Labyrinth Z was released in Japan on July 6, 2017 for the PlayStation Vita and PS4 platforms, and will be released in North America and Europe in early 2018. The game was also refused classification in Australia and Germany, and will not be released in New Zealand or Ireland.

Empty gesture: Trump's costly military parade could feed homeless veterans for weeks "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to plan a grand parade of the U.S. armed forces in Washington this year to celebrate military strength and flex the US empire. This display of militarism will proceed in spite of the very people Trump claims to be honoring being vehemently opposed to it. In fact, an unofficial poll conducted by the Military Times found the 90% of people do not want a parade. Nevertheless, it will happen. While many of Trump's supporters favor the parade, for those who've actually served in the military, the idea of being forced to practice day in and day out for a march through Washington D.C. so civilians can pump out their chests with nationalist pride is terrible. There are far better ways to "support the troops" than forcing them to parade around in front of you. Here's an idea, end all the wars. If you really want to support the troops, stop using them as pawns in the spread of empire and the expansion of the military-industrial complex. If you really want to support the troops and veterans, how about we address the fact that tens of thousands of them sleep on the streets every single night in the country they offered up their lives for.

New Moon in Pisces: Giving Us the Strength to Begin Healing From Past Wounds "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For anyone who does not know, there will be a new moon in Pisces on March 17th-18th. This new moon is going to be helping us for a week or two energetically to overcome things we are going through.

New moons always bring with them a sense of renewal. Their energies are like nothing else. They allow us to grow and change within. New moons tend to force us into action and in that, we work through all of the things we have been holding onto.

The moon is a loyal companion.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections. 
 Tahereh MafiShatter Me

Do your best in the days to come and do not make any big decisions. If you have to make big purchases think them through. Make sure that all options are thought through and covered before moving forward in the next few weeks. This Pisces new moon will be giving us a much broader view of the year that has passed as well as the one to come.

If you have been feeling conflicted within know that will be coming to an end soon. This new moon is paired with the energy of Pisces which will help us to grow to our full potential. Pisces is a very compassionate sign and so that trait will be enhanced within you.

You may notice that in the days after the new moon you will want to spend more time alone. You will be recharging and taking in everything this new moon brought to you. This moon will be a very healing one and it will help you in more ways than I can explain.

Mystic Mamma reported as follows in regards to these energies:

With a lot of fiery energy in the air, its vital to take deep breaths, slow down and take time to turn inward for reflection and revelation.

These seas must be traversed with much compassion for self and other.

This current passage has the potential to bring about a great healing, as we feel and address the spaces that have been stirring deep pain for us.

Family sues police for killing their pregnant teen daughter during unwarranted car chase "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A family is suing the city of Fremont and its police department one year after their 16-year-old daughter was shot and killed by police when officers opened fire on the car she was riding in, and the department blamed her death on the driver. Elena Mondragon, who was pregnant and unarmed, was sitting in the passenger seat of the car with her cousin and two of their friends when they were followed by two undercover police officers dressed in plain clothes. The officers, who were also driving an unmarked car, claimed that one of the boys in the group, Rico Tiger, 19, was a suspect in multiple armed robberies and the BMW they were in was a stolen car. While the officers were already conducting surveillance around the apartment complex and they claimed they intended to confront their target before he left the area, their plan failed. Because the officers were in plainclothes and they were driving what appeared to be a regular car, the driver of the car Mondragon was in claimed the group thought they were being followed or robbed, so they began to accelerate to get away from the other car.

SYRIA: Conversations with Camille Otrakji on Eastern Ghouta and the Future of the Region "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Vanessa Beeley and Camille Otrakji
21st Century Wire

Camille Otrakji is a modest and unassuming Syrian author and geopolitical analyst based in Montreal, Canada. He is not an excessively prominent public figure, instead Otrakji informs many and debates others from a position of knowledge and objectivity that is a rare find in todays adversarial Syrian-conflict-discussion forums.

Otrakji has taken on the cunning of Robert Ford, former US ambassador to Syria and Free Sryian Army death squad manufacturer, and Otrakji has cut through the US state spin that Ford employs to obfuscate the US role in fomenting these regime change uprisings that have destabilized Iraq, Libya and many more nations that have found themselves in the neocon crosshairs.

Syria and the Palestinians paid a heavy price for what the U.S. (and Sadat) did to them. Then in the 80s the Reagan administration partnered with Saddam Hussein against Syria and Assad who warned them that Saddam is a dangerous man. And similarly the U.S. spent the next few decades siding with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Israel, or Egypt against Syria. Always valuing other countries over Syria.

Paint Pollution Potentially Delays Delivery of Carnival Horizon "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The delivery of Carnival's newest cruise ship, the Carnival Horizon, which is currently in dry dock in Italy, is at risk of being delayed due to concerns that the water in the surrounding basin has been polluted during the painting of the ship's hull. 

The Carnival cruise ship is currently in dry dock in the Italian port of Monfalcone for the third time because of a problem with the application with the paint on the ship's hull.

Carnival Horizon Monfalcone ItalyCarnival and the ship builder do not want this information leaked to the international press. 

The Carnival Horizon just arrived in Monfalcone from the ship builder Fincantieris shipyard in Marghera on March 14th for its hull to be prepared for painting. An article in the Italian newspaper Il Piccolo reports that paint fragments from the Carnival Horizon ended up in the basin surrounding the dry-docked Carnival ship.  

The Il Piccolo article mentions the concerns of a "polluting event at sea." Painting operations have been suspended as of the date of the article.  The Harbor Master 's Office and the Public Prosecutor 's Office have obtained samplings of the contaminated waters. The Harbor Office also reportedly arranged for the positioning of absorbing panels to prevent further water pollution. 

The Horizon was originally scheduled to go to a dry dock in Cadiz, Spain in preparation for its inaugural cruise from Barcelona on April 2, 2018; however, Carnival elected not to accept the responsibility and liability by accepting the cruise ship which was leaching paint particles. 

The ship builder, Fincantieri, previously moved a ship in construction out of its dry dock to make space for the Horizon and therefore ended up polluting it's own waters.

The shipyard touts that the silicone painting coating is a "more environmentally friendly process," which seems belied by the news from Italy.

In the last year, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has been requested to investigate the use of certain silicone-based foul release systems and other hull coatings. 

The Carnival Horizon is a sister ship to the Carnival Vista and is the largest ship which...

In retaliation to British Prime Minister Theresa Mays expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats expelled from the UK over the alleged poisoning of a retired USSR-UK double agent and his daughter, Sergei and Yulia Skripal, the Russian government has ordered reciprocal measures with 23 UK diplomats ordered to leave on March 20th, according to Russian Ambassador to the UK, Alexander Yakovenko.

Together with family members we are talking about some 80 people, said Yakovenko.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has also accused the British government of  violating international law by refusing to work with Russia through their agreed treaty with the OPCW international chemical weapons organisation.

RT International reports

The Russian Foreign Ministry said 23 UK diplomats must leave Russia in response to Britains provocative actions and groundless accusations over ex-double agent Sergei Skripals poisoning. The British Council will also be shut.

Britains ambassador to Russia, Laurie Bristow, was summoned to the Foreign Ministry on Saturday morning, where he was informed of Moscows response to Londons claims that Russia is behind the poisoning of Sergei Skripal, a former double agent, and his daughter, Yulia, on March 4 in Salisbury, UK.

The ministry issued a statement saying 23 employees of the British embassy in Moscow have been declared personae non gratae. The diplomats must leave within a week. It also announced the operation of the British Council in Russia will be ceased given its unregulated status.

In addition, Russia is revoking its agreement on the opening and operation of the UK Consulate General in St. Petersburg due to disparity in the number of consulate facilities of the two countries.

Democrat Lawmakers Offer to Hire Andrew McCabe to Help Him Qualify For His Pension "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired dirty cop Andrew McCabe late Friday evening just days before his scheduled retirement and the fake news media lost their minds.

The news of McCabes firing sent MSNBC hacks into a frenzy.

The far left hosts tried to connect the news to the Stormy Daniels allegations.

MSNBC crank Andrea Mitchell attempted to save McCabes pension by suggesting a member of Congress hire the fired FBI Deputy Director for a few days so he can qualify for his benefits.

Corrupt Democrat lawmakers responded to Andrea Mitchells tweet and extended job offers to Andrew McCabe in an attempt to save his pension.

AG Sessions said in a statement of McCabes firing, McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor including under oath on multiple occasions.

Andrea Mitchell tweeted: One suggestion from a McCabe supporter: if a friendly member of Congress hired him for a week he could possibly qualify for pension benefits by extending his service the extra days

War Is On The Horizon "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

War Is On The Horizon

Paul Craig Roberts

Have Washington and its British vassal set a stage for testing whether Russia has the stomach for war?

How else do we interpret the announcement by General Sergey Rudskoy, chief of the Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff, that we have reliable information at our disposal that US instructors have trained a number of militant groups in the vicinity of the town of At-Tanf, to stage provocations involving chemical warfare agents in southern Syria. They are preparing a series of chemical munitions explosions. This fact will be used to blame the government forces. The components to produce chemical munitions have been already delivered to the southern de-escalation zone under the guise of humanitarian convoys of a number of NGOs. The provocations will be used as a pretext by the United States and its allies to launch strikes on military and government infrastructure in Syria. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-17/russia-claims-us-training-syrian-militants-false-flag-chemical-attack-justify

And: http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/03/17/555774/US-training-Syria-militants-for-false-flag-chemical-attacks-Russian-cmdr

Dont expect to hear anything about this in the totally discredited Western presstitute media, which is a propaganda ministry for war.

The Russian government must be kicking itself that it again failed to finish the job in Syria and instead permitted Washington to expand its Syrian presence, arm and train its mercenaries, provide chemical weapons, and assemble its fleet to attack Syrian forces in order to prevent their reconquest of Syrian territory.

The question before us is: If the information that General Rudskoy cited is correct, what will Russia do? Will Russia use its missile defences and air superiority to shoot down the US missiles and aircraft, or will Russia accept the attack and again denounce the illegality of Washingtons action and protest to the UN?

If Russia accepts the attack, Washington will push harder. Sooner or later Russia will be unable to accept another push, and war will break out.

If war breaks out, will it be a limited con...

What you pay attention to ends up controlling your life "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One of the best insights on what true productivity means in the 21st century dates back to 1890. In his book The Principles of Psychology, Vol.1, William James wrote a simple statement that's packed with meaning: "My experience is what I agree to attend to." Your attention determines the experiences you have, and the experiences you have determine the life you live. Or said another way: you must control your attention to control your life. Today, in a world where so many experiences are blended together - where we can work from home (or a train or a plane or a beach), watch our kids on a nanny-cam from work, and distraction is always just a thumb-swipe away - has that ever been more true?

Banana Republic or a great democracy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Washington Post has a strongly worded editorial on the firing of McCabe

MORE THAN the details of the case, President Trumps tweet early Saturday celebrating the firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe is what stands out: a marquee of bullying and unseemly behavior by a president. Mr. Trump acts like a nasty, small-minded despot, not the leader of a democracy more than two centuries old in which rule of law is a sturdy pillar. If there is doubt that the timing of Mr. McCabes dismissal was driven by political vengeance, Mr. Trump does everything he can to prove the worst with his own sordid words.

This is the language of a banana republic. In nations without a strong democratic foundation, tyrants cling to power by belittling perceived enemies and insulting and coopting other institutions, such as a free press, law enforcement and the military, coercing them into subservience. Just look around the world at practices today in Azerbaijan, Cambodia and Turkey, to name a few. The banana republic playbook has no place in the United States, not in a town hall, not in a statehouse, least of all in the Oval Office.

McCabe Speaks: I Pressured Rosenstein To Appoint Special Counsel After Comey Was Fired "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In an extensive interview conducted earlier this month, then-FBI official Andrew McCabe revealed to POLITICO that he pressured Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint a special counsel after FBI Director James Comey was fired. 

POLITICO reports:

McCabe said that when he was tapped as acting FBI director after Trump fired James Comey on May 9, 2017, he also learned that I might not be in the position for a long time.

I literally walked into the building every day expecting that I would be removed from my position before the end of the day, he added. And if that happened, I didnt want anyone to be able to just walk away from the work that we had done on the Russia investigation.

One step McCabe said he took then: pressing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for a special counsel. Another step: briefing congressional leaders in both parties, who get highly classified briefings as the so-called Gang of Eight, about what he was doing.

The Justice Departments inspector general was already conducting a sweeping inquiry into the FBIs decision-making process in closing its investigation of Hillary Clintons email server, then disclosing the discovery of new Clinton emails in a message to Congress in late October 2016.

On Friday evening, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe on the recommendation of FBI disciplinary officials.

Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor including under oath on multiple occasions, Sessions said in a statement.

The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity and accountability.

As the OPR proposal stated, all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand, Sessions added.

Andrew McCabe Fired, Trump And McCabe Exchange Words "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe Friday night, citing an Inspector General report which said that he made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media about a potential investigation into the Clinton Foundation shortly before the 2016 election.

McCabe whose wife received $700,000 from longtime Clinton political operative Terry McAuliffes political action committee during her bid for a Virginia Senate seat in 2015  was one of the officials overseeing the investigation into Hillary Clintons use of a private, unsecured e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of State. The investigation resulted in no criminal charges for Clinton. Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly had begun drafting a letter exonerating Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing several months before the bureau even interviewed her.

Donald Trump took to Twitter to praise Sessionss decision to fire McCabe just two days before he was reportedly planning to retire, calling it a great day for hard working men and women of the FBI.

In a statement released Friday night, McCabe took a page from the Comey playbook, saying that his firing is part of a larger scheme to tar the credibility of law enforcement and special prosecutor Robert Muellers ongoing probe.

This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence...

OPCW: Soviet Toxins Were Smuggled Out and Continued in Other Countries, Including US "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

CONSPIRACY THEORIST? Even British Prime Minster Theresa May cannot get her story straight.

In the last two weeks, the public has learned a new and exciting Russian word: Novichok, translated as newcomer in English. Seemingly overnight, western media operatives and politicians have become veritable experts on obscure Soviet-era chemical weapons. The British government and its mainstream media arms are all but certain that this rare and unproven Soviet-era nerve agent is the same substance which poisoned former USSR-UK double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

To date, no one in the western media and in politics, aside from UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, has had the courage to step forward and challenge the official conspiracy theory. Corbyn warned against rushing to judgement without any evidence being presented. The Labour leader also warned about Theresa Mays own reckless lack of British diplomacy over the Skripal case which could lead to a McCarthyite intolerance of dissent.

As it turns out, Corbyn is correct, as evidenced by the open slander and libel being carried out by UK newspapers like Daily Mail and others:

Despite all of the wild rhetoric coming out of Westminster, Downing Streets public statements regarding the actual event have been vague. Oddly, British Prime Minister Theresa May doesnt seem to know what happened either, as she immediately muddied her own waters hedging her bets by claiming the alleged chemical attack was either a direct action by Moscow, or that the Russia government somehow loss of control of its potentially catastrophically damaging nerve agent.

To date, no actually evidence has been presented to the OPCW by British authorities, although anecdotal and speculative theories have been aired in the...

Washington dusts off the "just following orders" torture defense for CIA director-designate "Bloody Gina" Haspel "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

During the Nuremberg Trials after World War II, several Nazis, including top German generals Alfred Jodl and Wilhelm Keitel, claimed they were not guilty of the tribunal's charges because they had been acting at the directive of their superiors. Ever since, this justification has been popularly known as the "Nuremberg defense," in which the accused states they were "only following orders." The Nuremberg judges rejected the Nuremberg defense, and both Jodl and Keitel were hanged. The United Nations International Law Commission later codified the underlying principle from Nuremberg as "the fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him." This is likely the most famous declaration in the history of international law and is as settled as anything possibly can be.

In 2017 Op-Ed, Andrew McCabes Attorney Called Internal Probe Of McCabe Welcome News "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Michael Bromwich, an attorney now representing former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) deputy director Andrew McCabe, wrote a January 2017 op-ed for the Washington Post that called the internal investigation of McCabe welcome news.

McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday after the FBIs ethics office recommended McCabes termination following a report from the Department of Justice Inspector General (IG) detailing alleged improper behavior by McCabe. The report from the DOJ IG has not yet been made public.

The announcement by the Justice Departments inspector general that his office will look into FBI Director James B. Comeys handling of Hillary Clintons emails reopens painful questions about the 2016 election, but it is also welcome news, Bromwich wrote in the Washington Post on January 14, 2017. The investigation will address allegations that Comey violated established Justice Department and FBI policies and procedures in his July 5, 2016, public announcement concerning the Hillary Clinton email investigation. And it will explore allegations that Comeys Oct. 28 and Nov. 6 letters to Congress, which jolted the presidential election and may have changed its outcome were improper.

Bromwich, who released a statement on McCabes behalf following McCabes firing, wrote in the 2017 op-ed that it was essential to understand what exactly was going on inside the FBI during the 2016 election and to hold people accountable for any improper behavior unearthed by the investigation.

The impact of Comeys actions can never be definitively known, he wrote. But it is important, for the J...

Sunshine Week: A look ahead "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As Sunshine Week ends, we take a look at some federal legislation seeking greater transparency. Here are three things to keep an eye on.

HONEST Ads Act

Introduced in October, the HONEST Ads Act would bring greater transparency to the burgeoning field of online political ads.

Under the Senate bill (S. 1989), online platforms such as Google, Facebook and Twitter would be required to release information about the buyers and targets of online political ads as well as preserve the ads and make them publicly available. A companion bill was introduced in the House (H.R. 4077).

The bills were championed as bipartisan efforts to ensure online ads met similar disclosure requirements of other campaign-related advertisements, such as those for TV and radio ads.

Unfortunately, neither bill has progressed to a floor vote, and only one of the 17 sponsors or cosponsors of the Senate bill is Republican Arizonas John McCain. (Eight of the 15 cosponsors of the House bill are Republican, however).

Last week, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) introduced two proposals that would expand disclosure requirements for online ads. The FEC voted to open 60 days for public comments and have planned to discuss the proposals again in June.

Senate E-Filing

Senators are not required to file campaign finance reports electronically with the FEC. The Senate Campaign Disclosure Parity Act would change that by bringing the upper chamber into the 21st Century.

Unlike the HONEST Ads Act, the bill has momentum and majority support in the Senate. So far, 52 senators have cosponsored the legislation....

Canadian Pirate Site Blocking Plan Triggers Thousands of Responses "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In January, a coalition of Canadian companies called on the local telecom regulator CRTC to establish a local pirate site blocking program, which would be the first of its kind in North America.

The Canadian deal is supported by Fairplay Canada, a coalition of both copyright holders and major players in the telco industry, such as Bell and Rogers, which also have media companies of their own.

Before making a decision on the proposal, the CTRC has launched a public consultation asking Canadians for their opinion on the matter. In recent weeks this has resulted in thousands of submissions, with the majority coming from ordinary citizens.

The responses themselves range from an unequivocal another push by Bell to control all forms of communication, to very elaborate and rather well-documented arguments.

From the responses weve seen its clear that many individuals are worried that their Internet access will be censored. The term slippery slope is regularly mentioned, as well as the corporate interests that back the plan.

I strongly oppose any attempt for internet censorship, especially any attempt brought forth by a commercial entity. The internet is and should remain a free flowing source of information that is not controlled by any individuals or groups political or corporate interests, Shanon Durst writes in her comment.

If there is concern for illegal activities taking place on the internet then those activities can be addressed in a court of law and the appropriate actions taken there, she adds.

The same type of arguments also come back in the Electronic Frontier Foundations (EFF) submission.

It is unsurprising that the entertainment industry would rather construct its own private body to bypass the court system in making decisions about website blocking, the EFF writes.

But if it is allowed to do this, will the newspaper industry be next to propose and fund a private body to make determinations about defamation? Will the adult entertainment industry propose establishing its own private court to determine the boundaries of the law of ob...

After working as a welder for 20 years, Shropshire decided it was time to get serious about what he really wanted to do with his life. When both his mom and dad struggled with their health, he witnessed the work nurses put in to provide care for their patients.

During the time my mom and dad were both sick and being in the hospital with them I got to see nurses in action, Shropshire said. I could see that a good nurse not only made a difference to my parents, but also to me.

This realization sprouted within him, took root and formed a full-fledged plan. He wanted to obtain a nursing degree and give back, like the nurses he had observed caring for his parents.

It led him on a path that turned his life upside down after the age of 50.

Back to College

After obtaining an associate degree in general studies from the University of Arkansas in Fort Smith, Shropshire was undecided on how he should proceed.

After both his parents had passed on, he realized it was time to decide. He and his wife, Micaela, moved to northwest Arkansas to be closer to her mother. It was then that he enrolled at Northwest Arkansas Community College and completed his pre-requisites in nursing. Soon after, he got his nursing degree.

Shropshire was able to utilize educational resources through the Chickasaw Nation to further his education.

While I was going to nursing school the Chickasaw Nation really helped, he said. I got financial help each semester through their program helping people go to school. It really helped me be able to go back to school.

He proved that no matter your age, you can go back to school and get a degree. He found those who wanted to pursue nursing had to stick it out. It wasnt for the weak-minded.

Nursing school is a very intense program, he said. I feel fortunate that my old brain was able to take it in and get through it.

Were responsible for peoples lives. It needs to be tough.

Global call for a #WorldAfrinDay on 24.03.2018 Lets Show to the world that Afrin is not alone! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Call for a global action day for Afrin on March 24, by the Internationalist Commune.

Originally published by the Internationalist Commune.

Global call for a #WorldAfrinDay on 24.03.2018 Lets Show to the world that Afrin is not alone!

Afrin is not alone, March 24 #WorldAfrinDay

The 20th of January the invasion of the canton of Afrin began. This territory located in the western part of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria has been bombarded mercilessly by fighter jets, artillery and all kinds of modern weaponry which carry the NATO seal. The Turkish army, so as not to dirty their hands and hide the number of casualties in their ranks, is using jihadist militias to carry out the attack. These militias were first a part of Al-Qaeda, in 2014 reorganized as Daesh and they now go under the banner of the FSA. The brutal images the invaders are posting to their social media, as well as their cries calling to war against the infidels, screaming Allahu Akbar at the top of their lungs, remind us that Rojava is still fighting the same enemy it once defeated in Kobane and Raqqa. But this time, the flag they stand behind is that of the second largest army of NATO. In addition, the black Daesh flag has been seen in several pictures with the red Turkish flag. Several of the combatants, killed in battle by the self-defense forces resisting in Afrin, have been positively identified as Daesh commanders.

The fascist and misogynistic dictator of the Turkish state, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has stated publicly that through this invasion against an autonomous territory inside a sovereign country, it wishes to return Afrin to its real owners. But behind this charade, its actually carrying out an ethnic cleansing and a genocide against the Kurdish people and other minorities, that have been living in Afrin since time immemorial. Afrin has been one of the few territories that has enjoyed a relative peace in the bloody war of Syria that has been raging for the last 7...

LiDAR Scans are Finding Hidden Roman Roads and Cutting Crime "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Back in 43AD, after the Roman conquest of Britain, the Emperor Vespasian sent governor Quintus Petilius Cerialis to what's now Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria to wrestle control of the north of England from a Celtic tribe called the Brigantes and put down a rebellion that had erupted after the breakdown of the marriage between Queen Cartimandua and her husband Venetius (she eloped with a 'common soldier'). These roads were an important part of connecting buildings and settlements to consolidate territory up north.

LiDAR mapping has helped to find four lost Roman roads so far, and there are hopes it will enable archaeologists to find many more - this 'light detection and ranging' laser mapping technology can be used to 'prove' the course a road took where before it was only suspected. LiDAR enables them to spot 'aggers' - Roman ramparts - running straight for a few kilometres, where a road must have been.

At present, about 75 per cent of England is mapped in this way, with limited knowledge of upland areas the Environment Agency began LiDAR scanning 20 years ago as a means of tracking changing coastlines and performing flood modelling.

They have just announced plans to map the entire of England which they say is the equivalent of about 32 million football pitches - by the end of 2020.

To create LiDAR maps, aircraft with laser scanners measure the distance between the plane and objects it encounters. Instead of radio or sound waves, as in the case of Radar or Sonar, LiDAR - wait for it - uses light waves and 'velocity of time' to calculate the time it takes to hit an object and be sent back, building up a detailed picture of what is out there.

[...] Beyond assessing flood risk, planning defences and understanding the natural landscape for varied purposes including those of archaeologists, the agency also hopes to fight "waste crime," which James Bevan, chief executive of the environment agency, has dubbed "the new narcotics".

Waste dumping reportedly costs 1 billion a year, with 1,000 sites discovered in 2015 - the process involves fraudsters dumping skip-loads of rubbish onto a piece of land and leaving it there to fester, while charging customers for the pleasure. LiDAR data enables authorities to discover sudden changes in the landscape quickly and crack down on the practice.

SXSW 2018 on BitTorrent: 8.24 GB of Free Music? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The SXSW music festival was one of the first major events to embrace BitTorrent.

In 2005, it used the then relatively new technology to share hundreds of DRM-free tracks from participating artists. It was a practical, fast, and cheap solution that worked well.

The official torrent releases continued for three years but since 2008 this task has been unofficially taken over by the public. SXSW still showcases music on their site, for sampling purposes, but no longer via torrents.

However, once its out on the Internet it only takes one person to make a torrent archive. For many years, the operator of SXSW Torrent has taken on this task and 2018 is no exception.

This years archive is released in two torrents, which consists of 1,276 tracks totaling 8.24 gigabytes of free music.

All the tracks released for the previous editions are also still available and most of these torrents remain well-seeded. The 2005 2018 archives now total more than 15,000 tracks and 85 gigabytes of data.

TorrentFreak spoke to the operator of SXSW Torrent who told us that its the tenth year in a row that the site has compiled the archive. His motivation is partly selfish, serving as preparation for his yearly SXSW Music trip, but also because many others are relying on it.

Many people come back every year, so I cant leave them hanging, the SXSW Torrent operator previously told us.

Apparently, these people prefer to download everything in one go, as opposed to browsing through the SWSX site to sample the music.

Its clear that these efforts are appreciated by the public. With tens of thousands of downloaders each year, the SXSW torrents attract quite a bit of traffic. For some, it almost makes up for not being able to attend the festival in person.

However, the term free music has changed over time. While SXSW Torrent was never asked to take any files down, the torrents are not officially authorized. This means that some artists or rightsholders, may not like the idea of their music being shared this way

When SWSX released the torrent we happily encouraged people to download the tracks, but now thats no longer the case.

The good news is that there are plenty other options out there. Aside from the showcases on the official website, SXSW has published official Spotify and YouTube....

Visible Light CT Scanner Does Double Duty "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If youve ever experienced the heartbreak of finding a seed in your supposedly seedless navel orange, youll be glad to hear that with a little work, you can protect yourself with an optical computed tomography scanner to peer inside that slice before popping it into your mouth.

We have to admit to reading this one with a skeptical eye at first. Its not that we doubt that a DIY CT scanner is possible; after all, weve seen examples at least a couple of times before. The prominent DSLR mounted to the scanning chamber betrays the use of visible light rather than X-rays in this scanner but really, X-ray is just another wavelength of light. If you choose optically translucent test subjects, the principles are all the same. [Jbumstead]s optical CT scanner is therefore limited to peeking inside things like slices of tomatoes or oranges to look at the internal structure, which it does with impressive resolution.

This scanner also has a decided advantage over X-ray CT scanners in that it can image the outside of an object in the visible spectrum, which makes it a handy 3D-scanner in addition to its use in diagnosing Gummi Bear diseases. In either transmissive or reflective mode, the DSLR is fitted with a telecentric lens and has its shutter synchronized to the stepper-driven specimen stage. Scan images are sent to Matlab for reconstruction of CT scans or to Photoscan for 3D scans.

The results are impressive, although its arguably more useful as a scanner. Looking to turn a 3D-scan into a 3D-print? Photogrammetry is where its at.

Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe Delivered Handwritten Trump Memos To Robert Mueller "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

trump and mueller

On Saturday, Trump learned just how badly he f*cked up when he pushed for the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Not only did reports surface that, like former FBI Director James Comey,  McCabe kept handwritten memos regarding Trump but that those memos are now in the possession of Robert Mueller:

McCabe revealed that he had three in-person interactions and one phone call with Trump, in which the President berated him each time about his wifes failed Virginia Senate campaign.
It is unclear exactly what is in McCabes memos and if he memorialized every interaction he had with the President.

In May, when Director Comey was fired and I had my own interactions with the President, he brought up my wife every time I ever spoke to him, McCabe told CNN. Of course, I disagreed with him.

McCabe also confirmed that the President asked him who he voted for in the 2016 election, which was reported back in January and which Trump denied.

The full contents of the memos have not been released, but Trump has every reason to be nervous right about now especially if they are anywhere near half as revealing as those written by Comey.

Climate Engineering: 13 Patents Explain the Chemtrail Experiment "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Journalist Andrew Lilico suggests that humanity must adapt to new changes in the Earths weather systems rather than waste resources on futile mitigation efforts.

Lilico believes that adaptation is much less risky and a world with potentially more violent extremes of weather should be so bad.

According to this journalist, everyone can change their roofs, clothing, etc . . . to make this world more eco-friendly by focusing on productive initiatives to reduce the current wasting [of] our time and money.

While the general public remains in the dark about extreme weather, there is little readily available information on how initiatives concerning the planets natural ecosystems have been tampered with and redirected through manipulation.

In 2010, David Keith, professor at the University of Calgary (UC) published a paper regarding the injection of exorbitant amounts of precisely engineered particles into the upper atmosphere for the sake of saving the planet.

Keither states that engineering particles as disks a few micrometers wide and around 50 nanometers thick, that are designed to automatically congregate where they are most useful in the atmosphere would combine nanotechnology and climate engineering.

By spraying engineered disks that are 50 nanometers thick and have a core of aluminum with a top layer of aluminum oxide and a bottom layer of barium titanate, the two particles can react to the atmosphere heating up and create a shiny side to reflect sunlight away from the Earth.

Keith recommends that 10 billion kg nano-discs would be needed to effectively alter the planets atmosphere and heat index.

One way to assist in this complete manipulation of natural weather patterns is provided by corporations like the North American Weather Consultants (NAWC) who have been involved in changing the weather since the 1950s.

The NAWC have been employed internationally in the industry weather modification [and] research and operations and as consultants for the US, Europe, South America, Central America, Asia and the Middle East.

New sanctions and accusations as US 'gets tougher' on Russia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In its toughest challenge to Russia to date, the Trump administration accused Moscow on Thursday of an elaborate plot to penetrate America's electric grid, factories, water supply and even air travel through cyber hacking. The U.S. also hit targeted Russians with sanctions for alleged election meddling for the first time since President Donald Trump took office. The list of Russians being punished includes all 13 indicted last month by special counsel Robert Mueller, a tacit acknowledgement by the administration that at least some of Mueller's Russia-related probe has merit. Trump has repeatedly sought to discredit Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election, but the sanctions appeared to rely on the special counsel's legal conclusions in deciding who should be named. The sanctions freeze any assets the individuals may have in U.S. jurisdictions and bar Americans from doing business with them. The named Russians - 19 in all - are unlikely to have any assets in the United States that would be covered, making the move largely symbolic. But it could help inoculate the president from persistent claims he's afraid or unwilling to stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin or to fight back against efforts to undermine America's democracy and domestic affairs.

Washington wrecks cybersecurity talks with Russia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Cybersecurity (CS) is the latest frontier in warfare. Much has been said about the need to work out certain rules to prevent an "unfettered arms race" and "combat operations" in this domain. Last year, Russia and the US agreed to discuss these issues and form a working group. The need for a joint approach to the problem during a telephone exchange between the two presidents. US pundits have discussed it in depth. Many hopes were pinned on these Russia-US cyber talks. If they could get off the ground, they would be viewed as a light at the end of the tunnel. Negotiations over strategies in regard to this "fifth domain" might expand to also include land, air, sea, and space. It took a lot of effort to reach an agreement to hold a dialog on February 27-28 in Geneva. Experts had been impatiently waiting for the two powers to address this burning issue. The whole world heard National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster claiming at the Munich Security Conference in February that the US was ready for such talks. Russia had initiated the efforts to reach an agreement aimed at restricting military operations in cyberspace. The 17-member Russian delegation arrived in Switzerland ready to roll up their sleeves, buckle down, and work hard to tackle the issue and get something accomplished, but Washington torpedoed the consultations. It informed Moscow that its delegation was not coming. It was a last-minute pull out.

Unproven involvement of N. Korea in the murder of Kim Jong-Nam is now its 'use of chemical weapons' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On March 5, 2018 a sensational headline appeared in several Western newspapers: "North Korea has used chemical weapons against its own citizens!" Having reached that conclusion, the USA imposed new sanctions on the DPRK in accordance with the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act, passed in 1991. Sanctions prohibit the USA from exporting technology and materials connected with security, selling weapons, and providing financial or other aid to the DPRK. "The use of deadly chemical weapons against its own citizens" is a very dramatic sounding phrase- it suggests to readers, at the very least, a large scale chemical attack such as those Assad's regime is accused of carrying out, or Saddam Hussein's attack on the rebellious Kurds. In fact, as the US State Department made clear, "the use of chemical weapons" refers to the killing of Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un using the toxic substance VX. Despite the fact that Pyongyang's involvement has not been proved by any court, the USA has already used this incident to put the DPRK back on the list of countries sponsoring terrorism.

Lavrov: Partition Syria must be foiled, West is 'on the ground', Haley remarks irresponsible "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

During an interview with the television and radio company of Kazakhstan's President, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has commented on a wide range of issues: from the situation in Syria to Skripal's poisoning and beyond. While stressing that the level of violence in Syria has significantly decreased, the foreign minister emphasized that "the process of deescalation in Eastern Ghouta could start only if the militants stopped shelling Damascus. This process has not been underway for a very long time, now there seems to be some hope that these armed formations will separate from Jabhat al-Nusra, " Lavrov said. According to Lavrov, any plans on Syria's partitions should be abandoned. "I do not think that we should even talk about a potential partition of Syria, but it is our duty to demand that these plans be immediately foiled, some bear it," the minister said in an interview with the television and radio company of the president of Kazakhstan.

Reports: Trump now open to non-permanent DACA compromise "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Despite a fairly obvious path to compromise, bipartisan DACA negotiations on Capitol Hill have gone nowhere, with four different immigration bills failing in the Senate last month. The president's deadline has come and gone, leaving the Obama-era executive amnesty in legal and practical limbo. As March 5th approached, we wrote about the possibility of a can-kicking deal that would formally extend DACA for some period of time, in exchange for undetermined enforcement concessions. President Trump has since seen his (pretty reasonable, in my view) "four pillars" approach fall well short of even a simple majority in Congress' upper chamber, with another budget deadline (March 23) fast approaching. He's now sounding more open to a non-permanent solution:

Terrorist capabilities exposed in Eastern Ghouta chem lab "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The battle of narratives over the use of chemical weapons in Syria has been raging ferociously for years. But a chemical lab discovered in Eastern Ghouta this week is set to change the parameters of the discourse. Last December, at a US military hangar near Washington DC, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley showcased an over-sized metal pipe as evidence of Iran's military collusion with Yemen's Houthi rebels. That picture hit every front page in the western hemisphere, drowning out the many objections that a big pipe on an American stage proves nothing. This week, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated some Eastern Ghouta farmlands between Shifouniyeh and Douma and discovered a well-equipped chemical laboratory run by Saudi-backed Islamist terrorists. Not a single Western reporter showed up to investigate the facility. The media disinterest is strange, given that US officials appear poised to green-light military attacks against Syria, which they claim has used chemical weapons (CW) against civilian populations. This charge remains unproven and highly contentious, with other parties arguing that anti-government militants are employing CW munitions to provoke a US military intervention against Syria. So perhaps it's not so strange that a chemical lab discovered right at the epicenter of a major strategic battle over Syria is being ignored by one side. In the end, it is likely that only one side is right about who is using CWs in Syria. Which is why one side went silent when this lab was revealed.

Judge says five other accusers may testify at Bill Cosby's retrial "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A judge agreed Thursday to let five additional Bill Cosby accusers testify at his April 2 retrial for an alleged 2004 sexual assault, giving prosecutors a chance to portray the man once known as "America's Dad" as a serial predator who made a sadistic habit of drugging and molesting women. Judge Steven O'Neill said prosecutors could choose the witnesses from a list of eight women with allegations dating as far back as the early 1980s. They include model Janice Dickinson, who said Cosby knocked her out with pills and raped her during a 1982 trip to Lake Tahoe. Prosecutors, eager to expand the scope of the underlying he-said-she-said case, had pushed to let jurors hear from as many as 19 of the dozens of women who say Cosby assaulted them over a five-decade span. "We are reviewing the judge's order and will be making some determinations," District Attorney Kevin Steele said.

US trains Syria militants' in false flag chem attacks as basis for airstrikes "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Russia's Defense Ministry says "US instructors" are training militants to stage false flag chemical attacks in south Syria. The incidents are said to be a pretext for airstrikes on Syrian government troops and infrastructure. "We have reliable information at our disposal that US instructors have trained a number of militant groups in the vicinity of the town of At-Tanf, to stage provocations involving chemical warfare agents in southern Syria," Russian General Staff spokesman General Sergey Rudskoy said at a news briefing on Saturday. "Early in March, the saboteur groups were deployed to the southern de-escalation zone to the city of Deraa, where the units of the so-called Free Syrian Army are stationed. They are preparing a series of chemical munitions explosions. This fact will be used to blame the government forces. The components to produce chemical munitions have been already delivered to the southern de-escalation zone under the guise of humanitarian convoys of a number of NGOs." The planned provocations will be widely covered in the Western media and will ultimately be used as a pretext by the US-led coalition to launch strikes on Syria, Rudskoy warned. "The provocations will be used as a pretext by the United States and its allies to launch strikes on military and government infrastructure in Syria," the official stated.

An 8-cop police dept. secretly acquired an arsenal of 19 military vehicles using 1033 program "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A tiny police department in a small Delaware town has been using the newly reinstated 1033 program to amass an arsenal of vehicles, weapons, and equipment and they are keeping it secret. Last August, the Trump administration lifted a ban on military surplus hardware being transferred to police departments across the United States. The controversial 1033 program became a source of citizen outrage after images of police armed with military-grade weaponry, including grenade launchers and armored MRAPs, were beamed into people homes across the country during the battlefield-style police response to the rioting in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014. As many Americans noted, Ferguson, Missouri looked like a war zone, with police kitted out in Marine-issue camouflage and military-grade body armor, toting short-barreled assault rifles, and rolling around in armored vehicles - virtually indistinguishable from US soldiers. Shortly after the American public became widely aware, and largely outraged, over the extreme militarization of their local police forces, President Obama signed an Executive Order (EO) that blocked large-caliber weapons, armored vehicles, grenade launchers and other heavy military hardware from being repurposed from battlefields across the globe to small town USA. This was one of very few notable pro-liberty moves by the Obama admin, however, thanks to the current administration, it is all gone.

Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!

Triumph of Propaganda: Russia or Syria Will Always Found Guilty Within Hours "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By

The world audience should already be used to a certain news item: Whenever a chemical attack somewhere takes place, the Western leaders know exactly who is to blame even before the very first investigator has arrived on the scene.

In the Syrian war it became something of a political mechanism: Chemical strike blame Assad call for political consequences. All of that happens within several hours. Anyone who dares to ask within these hours for forensic evidence or a proper investigation is branded either a dictators friend, conspiracy theorist or simply a cynic. Finally, after an investigation had taken place and no evidence is found for the Assad-did-it theory, the political consequences will not be walked back.

This strategy seems to work over and over again. For Syria that means: Any terrorist group, or any anti-Syrian foreign intel service that has a certain interest in frequent chemical attacks. It has never been so easy to forge anti-Syrian sentiments into solid anti-Syrian politics. This is not a conspiracy theory this is the lesson of a seven-year war.

This mechanism can also work in Europe just with different players: On 4 March 2018, Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in Salisbury with a nerve agent. The poisoning is being investigated as an attempted murder. Skripal is a former Russian military-intelligence officer who acted as a double agent for the UKs intel services during the 1990s and early 2000s. In December 2004, he was arrested by Russias Federal Security Service (FSB), convicted of high treason, and was imprisoned. He settled in the UK in 2010 following a spy swap.

At the very moment when the first news about this case was broadcast, countless Western experts had already identified the aggressor: Russia, Putin, the Kremlin. And when the poison was identified as one of the so-called Novichok agents which were developed in the Soviet Union in the 1980s, it was seen as the perfect smoking gun. The political mechanisms were already at operating temperature.

Queen Elizabeth II Has A WW3 Speech Written And It Is Ready To Deliver "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Queen of England has a pre-written speech prepared for the outbreak of World War 3.  As tensions between Russia and the United Kingdom continue to flare, the Queens speech is sparking fears of a nuclear war.

An Austrailian news source, News.Com.Au, reported that some people already fear a nuclear war is more likely that during the Cold War era. The speech was prepared for her back in the 1980s. It was originally revealed in 2013, but no one paid much attention until now. The address was written in the event nuclear war does occur, and she needs to address the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

The speech was released by the government under the 30-year rule, and is reflective of the time it was written, with a planned broadcast date of March 4, 1983. It was drawn up as part of a wargaming exercise.  The script for a hypothetical broadcast has the monarch describing the threat to the brave country as greater than any other in history. It also mentions the Queens son Prince Andrew, then in the Royal Navy. The speech, devised by Whitehall officials at one of the most fraught Cold War periods, was never recorded.

Although it was only a simulation, the text of the Queens address (written as if broadcast at midday on Friday 4 March 1983) seeks to prepare the country for the ordeal of World War III. According to the BBC, it starts off by referring to the Queens traditional Christmas address:

The horrors of war could not have seemed more remote as my family and I shared our Christmas joy with the growing family of the Commonwealth. Now, this madness of war is once more spreading through the world and our brave country must again prepare itself to survive against great odds.

7 Signs Your Heart Isnt As Healthy As You Think "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Without our hearts we would not be able to survive, that much is something we are all aware of but do you really pay attention to your heart health? Do you know the signs of heart disease or heart complications in general?

There are tons of different things that could trigger heart issues of all kinds. Heart disease is not in any way one size fits all. Most of the different forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated within reason so if you do your best to be as aware as possible you could literally save your own life.

While the symptoms in men and women vary a bit overall the main ones are quite similar. Below you will find a list of the top signs that indicate your heart is in poor health and needs immediate attention. If you notice these things in yourself or someone close to you pleases do not hesitate to get help, time is not something we have very much of in regards to heart problems.

7 Signs of Poor Heart Health Everyone Should Be Aware of:

1. Chest pain or tightness

This can be anything from mild tightness to extreme pain. Even if what you are facing is a mild discomfort you should still get it checked out.

2. Abnormal heartbeats

This could mean your heart is beating faster or slower than normal or even fluttering out of nowhere. It varies from person to person and the type of issue your heart is facing can also have some effect on what it is doing. You should always pay attention to the way this makes you feel and how long it lasts.

3. Lightheadedness

Lightheadedness is something we all experience at one point or another for different reasons. If you notice this accompanied by any of the other symptoms, you could have a serious problem on your hands. You may also become nauseous or notice a bit of brain fog.

4. A sudden feeling of pressure or crushing under the breastbone

5 Zodiac Signs that Never Feel Insecure, And Who Are Always In Control of Their Emotions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sure, we all feel a little insecure from time to time, but there are some signs that are more insecure than others and some that never seem insecure at all. Dont get me wrong we all get insecure at some point in our lives but how you face that insecurity makes a huge difference.

Below you will find a list of some of the most emotionally strong zodiac signs there are. These signs are able to face just about anything with a positive face. Even when they are insecure or concerned they do not show it. We could learn so much from these signs.

If your sign didnt make the list, do not be concerned just take the things written about the others and try to apply them to yourself. We can all grow traits within that we need. These things will benefit us all greatly whether we already have them or have to work on them, it is all the same.

Aries

Aries people are not the kind of people who show emotion. They are very capable of doing any and everything by themselves and they know it. They do not often get insecure because they are aware of how amazing they are. They work within to be their own motivators and it benefits them greatly.

Aries people do not let petty things get to them. If you cross them they cut ties and move on, that is the end of it. They dont waste time playing into drama or that he said she said bullshit.

Leo

Leos are always good at putting on a show. They are cool and confident through anything life throws their way. When they are insecure they overcome it by working through it. They do not often back down from anything. Leos are able to learn from their mistakes and make the most of every situation. If they stumble they make it look as if merely part of the performance.

Libra

Libras have much thicker skin than most people think. They do not let the words of others get to them. They know who they are and where they are headed in life. Sure, sometimes they can be a bit emotional but they do not show that side of themselves unless the timing is right. You will not catch them bursting into tears in the middle of something, as they believe there is a time and place for everything.

Sagittarius

Sagittariuss just dont give a fuck. They dont care what you think or who you are they will unapologetically do whatever they want to do. They dont get insecure often because the opinions of most people do not matter to them. They are not going to hide from others just to avoid being judged. Learning to be yourself and not care what people say about you is something we should all be doing.

5 Things All Little Girls Need to Hear From Their Father "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sometimes fathers can think they are being there for their daughters in all possible ways without actually being there in the ways they are truly needed. A little girl needs her father in lots of ways and she needs his support more than anything else.

When it comes to growing up, we all go through many different phases and some of those phases are hard to deal with. Being a young girl in this day and age is not necessarily easy. If you are a father you should want to do the following things for your daughter to help ensure she is able to see herself in the ways she needs to long after you are gone.

We all want the best for our children and sometimes we do not necessarily realize what that is. We need to be active in our childrens lives and be there to guide them without forcing them into the things that make them who they are. Telling them to go ask mom or getting grossed out and ignoring the feminine parts of her life and changing, in general, is only going to make her feel bad. Be proud of her and help her to be as comfortable as possible in the skin she was given.

5 Things Fathers Need to Give To Their Daughters:

1. She needs you to give her unconditional love.

Dont withdraw once she begins getting older. Dont stop being as close just because she is growing up. Do your best to be there for her even when she is a teenager. Dont be the dad that refuses to accept that his daughter is growing up. She should be able to go to you when she needs you.

2. She needs you to always tell the truth.

Dont lie to her, this world will do plenty of that. Speak the truth to her and make sure she knows how to tell when someone is lying. Teach her that she can be anything and do anything she wants in this world. Make sure she knows that no matter what as long as she is living her truth everything will be okay.

3. She needs you to show her what a healthy relationship is.

Make sure honesty is something she values.......

WATCH: Robin Cooks resignation speech, 15 years on "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by Kit Today marks the 15 year anniversary of Robin Cook MPs resignation from the Cabinet, in protest over the US/UK plan to invade Iraq. The speech, given just two years before his death, is impressive for its honesty, and in hindsight soberingly tragic. It is apparent, when you watch the speech, that no one understood the horror that was about to be unleashed on a comparatively stable world. All told, the speech is just very, very sad. Its sad to see that even the harshest, strongest parliamentary critics couldnt come close to guessing the scale of the destruction. When Mr Cook spoke of a projected death toll at least in the thousands, he thought he was giving a grisly warning. We now know it to be a dramatic understatement. Its sad to hear him refer to suggestions the war may last only a few days when it lasted years. Iraq is a fractured mess to this day. Its sad to witness stark warnings about the breakdown of international law fall on deaf

Breaking Report: Like Comey, Fired McCabe Kept Memos of His Interactions With Pres. Trump "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Associated Press reported Saturday afternoon that fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe kept memos of his dealings with President Donald Trump, similar to those kept (and illegally leaked) by fired former FBI Director James Comey.

McCabe and Comey, both fired, both kept memos on dealings with Pres. Trump.

The AP report states it is not clear if McCabes memos have been shared with the Mueller investigation.

Andrew McCabe, the onetime FBI deputy director long scorned by President Trump and just fired by the attorney general, kept personal memos regarding Trump that are similar to the notes compiled by dismissed FBI chief James Comey detailing interactions with him, The Associated Press has learned.

It was not immediately clear whether any of McCabes memos have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller, whose criminal investigation is examining Trump campaign ties to Russia and possible obstruction of justice, or been requested by Mueller.

McCabes memos include details of interactions with the president, among other topics, according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation who wasnt authorized to discuss the memos publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

End excerpt. Please read the complete AP article at this link.

Fox News Adam Housley posted several tweets last night on McCabes firing, including one in which he reported that his sources told him McCabe threatened to take people down with him if he was fired.

VMware addresses a DoS flaw in Workstation and Fusion products "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

VMware has addressed a denial-of-service (DoS) vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2018-6957, in its Workstation 12.x and 14.x and Fusion 10.1.1. and 10.x on OS X products.

The affected VMware solutions can be attacked by opening a large number of VNC sessions. The DoS vulnerability was discovered by Lilith Wyatt of Cisco Talos, the flaw could be exploited on Workstation and Fusion only if the VNC has been manually enabled.

VNC implementation in VMware solutions is used for remote management purposes.

VMware Workstation and Fusion contain a denial-of-service vulnerability which can be triggered by opening a large number of VNC sessions. reads the security advisory published by VMware.

The company issued the security patches in Workstation 14.1.1 and Fusion 10.1.1.,  VMware also shared details about a workaround for Workstation 12.x and Fusion 8.x releases that involves setting a password for the VNC connection.

While VMware has classified the vulnerability as important, Cisco Talos has ranked it as a high severity flaw and assigned it a CVSS score of 7.5.

Experts at Cisco Talos confirmed that an attacker can trigger the flaw on a targeted server and cause the virtual machine to shut down by opening a large number of VNC sessions.

Since the VMware VNC server is naturally multi-threaded, there are locks and semaphores and mutexes to deal with shared variables. reads the advisory published by Talos.

The VNC server also maintains a global variable that indicates the amount of locks that are currently used, that is incremented by certain events.

VMware

Talos published the Proof-of-Concept exploit code:

# There are obviously better ways to do this

Regardless, the important thing to note here is that the incrementing instruction (lock xadd cs:MxLockCounter, eax...

Eric Holder Lashes Out at Erratic President Trump Over McCabe Firing in Ominous Midnight Tweet "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Washington Post reported on Friday that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired  two days before he was set to retire.

The firing may affect this retirement package.

McCabe is the first Deep State criminal to face justice; he was a part of the insurance policy conversation with Strzok and Page.

Leftists and fake news media sycophants lost their minds over McCabes firing.

Former Attorney General Eric Fast and Furious Holder lashed out at President Trump in an ominous midnight tweet.

 

Eric Holder has been attacking President Trump from his Twitter account for over a year.

This time Holder described Trump as erratic and said it was dangerous he played a role in McCabes firing.

Even funnier, Holder claims the firing compromised the DOJs independence. Rich coming from the only Attorney General in history to be held in criminal contempt of Congress.

Holder tweeted at 2:17 AM EST: Analyze McCabe firing on two levels: the substance and the timing. We dont know enough about the substance yet. The timing appears cruel and a cave that compromised DOJ independence to please an increasingly erratic President who shouldve played no role here. This is dangerous

The timing is cruel? No, its perfect and McCabe doesnt deserve one damn dime of his pension. Hes a corrupt, dirty cop who tried to overthrow a duly elected President with an insurance policy. We want McCabe locked up.

McCabe also coordinated with Peter Strzok to ambush General Flynn in an attempt to ruin his life.

Eric Holder is becoming increasingly hostile because the Trump administration is exposing criminal actions carried out by Obamas FBI and DOJ.

In a desperate move, Eric Holder used violent anti-GOP rhetoric in a....

Samantha Power Issues Veiled Threat At POTUS Trump After McCabe Firing: Not A Good Idea To Piss Off John Brennan "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On Friday evening, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe on the recommendation of FBI disciplinary officials.

Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor including under oath on multiple occasions, Sessions said in a statement.

The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity and accountability.

As the OPR proposal stated, all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand, Sessions added.

Hours later, President Trump took to Twitter to laud the move.

Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!

The Russian Investigative Committee has opened criminal cases into the attempted murder of Yulia Skripal, daughter of poisoned double agent Sergei Skripal, and the suspected murder of businessman Nikolay Glushkov in London. Yulia Skripal was visiting her father, former double agent Sergei Skripal, when the two were poisoned by what the UK claims was a Soviet-era nerve agent. The incident caused a massive diplomatic row between London and Moscow and saw the UK impose sanctions against Russia. Despite accusing Russia of using chemical weapons on its soil, Britain refused to share details of the case or provide any evidence to Moscow, ignoring the fact that Yulia Skripal is a Russian citizen. Russia's ambassador to the UK promised that Moscow would "exert massive pressure"on London regarding the Skripal poisoning investigation.

Damning new evidence reveals that an engineer working on the pedestrian bridge in Greater Miami, Florida, that collapsed on Thursday had attempted to report damage days before the incident took place. Just three days after the Florida International University bridge, designed by FIGG Bridge Engineers, "swung into place,"the project's lead engineer, Denney Pate, left a voicemail message for a colleague to report structural fissures. No one was available to hear the March 13 message until Friday, one day after the bridge collapsed, killing at least six people and leaving a massive pile of rubble on an eight-lane highway. Nine others were taken to local hospitals, authorities reported. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) released a statement with a short transcript of Pate's voicemail and explanation of events leading up to the catastrophe.

submitted to Earth First! Newswire

Local community organizers will be hosting a rural and urban direct action camp in so-called Asheville, North Carolina from April 26th-29th. This camp is open to all female, trans, trans women, trans men, gender queer, gender variant, two-spirited, agender, and otherwise non-cis male-identifying people. TWAC is an approach to smashing patriarchy and opposing all forms of oppression through direct action, skill-sharing, and mutual aid for the sake of individual  and collective liberation for all. It is our goal to empower those of us who are systematically  silenced and oppressed due to socially-constructed gender and racial inequalities, to have our  voices be heard and to bring together communities of resistance in spaces that consciously  subvert the power dynamics we often experience in cis and male-dominated spaces. We hope to build power and amplify voices within our community, heal, and strengthen our cultures of resistance.This camp is striving to prioritize the voices of indigenous and black
activists and comrades, especially in the south. The relationship between environmental
movements and transformative racial and transgender justice is crucial and something that we
will continue to discuss.

This four-day camp will offer workshops and discussions on a wide range of topics
including: urban and rural direct action, earth-skills, art & activism, conflict resolution, botany,
tree climbing, anti-fascist and anti-racist organizing, prisoner support, DIY medicine and
first-aid, herbalism, caucuses and much more! The camp will be held on a piece of land in the

6 Unbelievable Urban Legends That Happen To Be True "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Mankind has been passing along legends and folklore since weve been able to communicate. The good news is, while many contain kernels of truth, the majority of the creepy legends shared in hushed tones over roaring fires arent true.

Most are just exaggerated stories meant to scare listeners and sometimes impart some sort of life lesson. Urban legends wrap up societys fears in an attention-catching narrative that can be safely enjoyed for thrills, all the while knowing that its all just a tall tale.

The thing about urban legends, though, is that sometimes they are true. Its as if legend-ifying a horrific event is a way to cope and help people move on, while also shielding younger generations from ugly truths. Collected here are some of the worlds most terrifying true urban legends.

Bloody Mary

Source: All That Is Interesting

According to the incredibly scary folkloric tradition of Bloody Mary, in order to conjure the maleficent apparition, all you have to do light some candles, dim the lights, and mutter Marys name while staring into a mirror. And, once she appears, theres a whole host of potential things she might do that range from the benign to the downright terrifying.

According to some psychologists, it really is possible to see someone else staring back at you if you gaze into a mirror long enough, so Bloody Mary likely didnt just appear out of thin air. Italian psychologist Giovanni Caputo calls this phenomenon the strange-face illusion. Basically, according to Caputo, if you stare at your own face in a mirror long enough, your visual field will start to distort lines and edges will begin to lose their distinctions and your face will begin to look different. This is also the phenomenon behind things like seeing faces in inanimate objects.

Triangle Shaped Antigravity Craft Sighted over Orlando, Florida "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Photos of Triangle Shaped Antigravity Craft over Orlando, Florida

WRITTEN BY DR MICHAEL SALLA ON MARCH 17, 2018

The following video analyses a series of five photos taken in a remote area of Orlando, Florida by my anonymous source, JP, on March 16, 2018. The photos show a craft estimated by JP to be flying/hovering at an altitude 2000-5000 feet high, and the size of two jumbo jets.

JP says that he had a missing time experience of approximately 30 minutes before taking the photo. On previous occasions where he has had missing time, he has been able to subsequently recall being taken on board the craft of a U.S. Air Force run secret space program, or cylindrical craft of alleged Nordic extraterrestrials.

He has also been prompted on several occasions by covert personnel to take photos of the craft he has subsequently witnessed. JP has identified some of the personnel on board these craft wearing the patch U.S. Air Force Special Operations.

The video shows close ups of the craft in the photos and how similar it is to a 2004 patent design for a triangle shaped spacecraft.



The symmetrical geometry of the craft in JPs photos, the smooth edges, the apparent width of the craft, and some kind of large hemisphere generator in the center, is all very similar to the 2004 patent design for a Triangle Spacecraft as the following side by side comparison shows.

Facebook launches Express Wi-Fi Android app in Kenya and Indonesia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Facebooks Express Wi-Fi now available as an Android app in the Google Play Store

Facebook has quietly launched the latest Express Wi-Fi app that will allow mobile phone users in developing countries to buy cheap data. The Express Wi-Fi network is presently live in five developing countries, namely India, Kenya, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Tanzania. However, according to a TechCrunch report, the Express Wi-Fi Android app is currently available for download from the Google Play Store only in Kenya and Indonesia. There is no word yet on when the remaining countries, India, Nigeria and Tanzania will get the app.

Facebook is releasing the Express Wi-Fi app in the Google Play store to give people another simple and secure way to access fast, affordable internet through their local Express Wi-Fi hotspots, a Facebook spokesperson told TechCrunch confirming about the apps rollout.

For those unaware, Express Wi-Fi is a part of Facebooks Internet.org, where it collaborates with carriers, internet service providers, and local entrepreneurs to help expand internet connectivity to underserved locations around the world. Unlike Facebooks Free Basics program, which enabled users to visit Facebook websites for free, Express Wi-Fi provides access to unrestricted viewing of a website through the browser at a reasonable cost.

So, how does the Express Wi-Fi app works? The app allows Facebook users to buy data packs and easily find nearby hotspots as part of Facebooks distributed Wi-Fi network. The users also get prompts from Facebook if they are near an Express Wi-Fi hotspot. In the past, to access Express Wi-Fi, users would have to either use a mobile browser, or directly download an app from their telecom provider that required them to reconfigure their phone settings. Neither of these methods would show a way where hotspots were located.

Users need to pay according to the data pack used. Once connected, users can go to any website they want, download music, watch videos and much more. When the data pack is exhausted, the users are reportedly offered an option to recharge the phone with additional data packs followed by information regarding the nearby recharge points.

El Reg reports

The March edition of Patch Tuesday lands just hours before researchers are expected to flaunt their latest and greatest exploits at the CanSecWest Pwn2Own hacking competition in Vancouver.

Hopefully nobody was planning to use any of the 75 CVE-listed vulnerabilities Microsoft addressed today, including several for the Edge and Internet Explorer browsers that would allow remote code execution.

The fixed bugs include nine remote code execution (RCE) flaws in the Chakra scripting engine in Edge. Microsoft says the scripting bugs (such as CVE-2018-0874[1]) would allow an infected webpage to run code with the logged-in user's clearance level.

The Edge scripting engine was also the subject of four memory corruption RCE flaws, as well as an information disclosure bug, CVE-2018-0839[1], that allows an attack page to view objects in memory.

Just two of the 75 Microsoft bugs squashed this month have been publicly disclosed. They include an elevation of privilege bug in Exchange (CVE-2018-0940[1]) exploited via email. Dustin Childs of the Zero Day Initiative said that the bug is perfectly set up to facilitate a spear phishing attack.

You Are Not Defined By Your Mental Illness, And Your Mental Illness Does Not Mean You Are Impossible to Love "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

All too often I hear or see people mentioning how impossible to love their mental illness makes them. This is something that needs to stop, because no one is impossible to love.

Dont get me wrong, as someone who deals with anxiety even I have felt this way before but I now know things that I did not back then. The truth is that mental illness does make some of us hard to love. People might be okay with our problems in the beginning but as time goes on they may realize we are not the one for them and that is fine, but we should not let ourselves believe that we are impossible to love. Even if our mental illness makes us hard to love at times we are not impossible, nothing is ever impossible.

There is always someone out there that can and will understand you, you just have to find them. I have been through lots of things in the past with different partners deciding on down the line that I just needed to learn to get over it. I promise if it were that easy I would have done it by now. It is not your fault that you are with someone who turned out to be toxic or someone who just couldnt handle you on your bad days. Remember, that is their loss.

You are amazing and strong and you face things every day that those people probably wouldnt even be able to imagine. Dont let your mental illness define you. Do not let someone throw that stigma on you, you are whoever you want to be. Your mental illness is a part of you, it is not who you are.

I know some mental illnesses are harder to deal with than others and I know that we shouldnt blame others for not being able to understand, how could they understand when they do not experience the things we do? But that doesnt make it any less hard on our hearts or our minds in the end. Breakups hurt no matter what you are going through.

You are more than capable of providing someone with the love they need and you deserve that same love in return. Hard to love does not mean impossible to love, never forget that. You are wonderful and you do not give yourself credit enough in this world.

You accomplish more in a day than most and you manage so much without cracking. No one is perfect not even those who are mental illness free. Communication is everything, and once you find the right person everything will work out.

You can love someone with all that you are and someday that will be good enough for the right person. Someone will come in and make you feel like the assholes of your past never mattered at all. Unlovable is not a thing, impossible is always possible and love can be found in some of the most unexpected places. Do not be discouraged, it is out there and it will find you when you least expect it.

You are not your m...

One of the Largest U.S Retailers Has Dropped Hints About Producing Robotic Bees For a Very Important Reason "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sure, Walmart does a lot of different things, but this is not something we were expecting. Could this mean more control for their food supply chain or something else?

Walmart has filed a patent for autonomous robotic bees or pollination drones if you will. These robot bees will be potentially pollinating crops in the same ways a real bee would. They will carry pollen from one plant to another and use cameras and sensors to detect the crops themselves. You can click here to see the patent for yourself.

Walmart is one of several organizations it seems looking to get behind the development of pollination drones in order to help offset the decline of bee populations. The patent for robot bees appears along with five other patents in regards to farming drones and things of the sort. At this point, we are not completely sure why Walmart has filed this patent but we can assume it has something to do with venturing into the world of agriculture.

CB Insight who originally noticed this patent wrote as follows in regards to why this is notable:

To compete against Amazon, Walmart has been busy building up its grocery business. Last year, Walmart started offering same-day grocery delivery in certain areas. It also acquired delivery startup Parcel and just last month partnered with Instacart to roll out same-day delivery for its Sams Club business.

Walmart has even piloted a smart lock partnership, so Walmart delivery people could unload grocery orders directly into shoppers fridges when theyre not home.

Amidst all this competition, we also know brands and shoppers are moving toward more natural food products and transparent labeling.

By taking more control over how its produce is grown, Walmart could a) potentially save on costs, by vertically integrating its food supply chain, b) manage crop yields more effectively, and c) increase its emphasis on transparency and sustainability to attract shoppers.

They also mentioned that:

While Walmart may not start fully managing its own farms in the near future, increasing its involvement in agriculture could help the company differentiate its food offerings and increase its focus on transparency and sustainability, as well as help mitigate in......

Gibraltar The Real Reason For Brexit Finally Revealed "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

GB88456234

Once again the naked truth has shown itself while everyone was looking the other way. Analysts have been giving all sorts of reasons as to why the Brexit scenario has developed as it has. But the truth has been staring us in the face, all the time which is exactly why these debates have been encouraged.

Whichever way they voted, British people are no longer primarily arguing about the EU itself. The issue is whether the consequences of leaving, which are becoming increasingly burdensome, are a price worth paying. The pound has tanked and the promised quick fixes on immigration, employment and opportunity have not materialised. Problems no one ever expected have also arisen, such as the impact on the Irish border, the possible grounding of flights and significant employers in Brexit-voting areas threatening to relocate to the EU.

The Brexit camp have gone from crowing about their victory to telling everyone they will survive somehow, and worrying that the government might not deliver Brexit after all. The Remain supporters believe they are being proved right, gaining traction by presenting Brexit as a con imposed on the electorate by newspaper magnates and politicians wanting to protect themselves from tax demands.

But all of a sudden, the real reason Brexit is being pursued in the face of political logic has come out. The media owners may have facilitated Brexit, but it is another dimension of a very familiar story. If we had understood this before we might have seen who all those tax dodgers are really working for and what the consequences will be for a rich, developed country which has sold itself into Third World-type slavery.

As bad as our friends

Great powers, whether countries or individuals, are always tempted to behave badly simply to show they are different. Absolute monarchs often had a succession of mistresses just to show they were special people, above the moral codes of ordinary mortals. Powerful nations do whatever they can get away with just to show they are part of the club, as the centuries of walking into other countries to create empires testified.

True leadership needed to stop the trashing of PNG "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The despoilation of Collingwood BayLINDSAY BOND

BRISBANE Just a few days ago, an important tweet appeared in my Twitter timeline from Governor Gary Juffa of Oro Province in Papua New Guinea.

"Today completed inspection of ongoing operations at Collingwood, Oro Province, the tweet read. All equipment and logs impounded. Illegal logging operations stopped. Addressed community to inform them of actions taken on their behalf including engagement of lawyer to commence civil proceedings."

These were Governor Juffas words and they were said after his decisive actions. A leader by tradition is one who goes ahead into the fray, giving full measure to being the first and being seen to do that by his followers.

Governor Juffa also tweeted: "It is very worrying that PNG Forest Authority are now so silent and not acting against illegal loggers in Oro. This is totally hypocritical of the govts claim that it is taking stringent steps against illegal logging."

The leadership that he exemplifies is precisely the lead that ought to have come from PNG Forest Authority. And he rightfully decries the silence from PNGFA.

Public servants in provinces corroborate with PNGFA officials and dubious landowners to award permits via the PNGFA Board to log chunks of land of 500 hectares to logging pirates on the pretext of tree growing and agricultural projects, Governor Juffa wrote on Facebook.

Tradecraft: Top 20 Places to Hide Your Survival Water Stockpile "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(SurvivalSullivan) All preppers should strive to be more like squirrels. Hiding your preps away from view, especially your most vital prep of allwater, is a necessity. Even if you have a big pond and/or a creek that runs through your property, never take the seemingly ample supply of water for granted.

A drought or some type of contamination (accidental, environmental, or intentional) could decrease or deplete your pond or creek, and leave your family with no means of quenching their thirst after the SHTF.

Collecting rainwater in barrels should be a commonplace activity around your survival retreat or bug in location, but leaving the bounty in plain site of prying eyes is dangerous. Would you leave your thousands of rounds of ammo and weapons cache sitting out on the porch for all comers to view? I didnt think so.

Water should be stockpiled for drinking, cooking, for cleaning and hygiene purposes. The common cold and other diseases will quickly spread during a long-term disaster, keeping the survival retreat and body thoroughly clean should help reduce the chances of germ spreading.

Survival Water Storage Options

Storing your survival water stockpiles in varying types of containers will give you far more options for hiding places. The marauding hordes may be looking for water barrel catchment systems attached to the home or sitting close by, or other commonly used containers.

Choosing multiple types of storage containers will allow you to hide this valuable resource in places both large and small, and make locating it a lot more difficult for looters.

When water is stored in plastic containers, make sure they are of the food grade variety, preferably the #2 HDPE BPA-free food grade plastic material. For best and safest results, always keep the water storage containers in a cool spot out of the sun and rotate the water supply every six months.

5-Gallon Stackable Water Storage Container

These containers are relatively compact and easily portable. Most stackable water storage containers are made out of 90 mils UN rated plastic to make them as durable as possible without adding too much extra weight to carry. Water storage containers made out of opaque material should eliminate or reduce bacteria growth.

This type of survival water storage container can hold almost enough drinking wate...

World Bank Approves US$295M Package To Enhance Lebanons Public Transport & Reduce Congestion "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I am not sure whether we should be praising the below news or not, because I am very skeptical as to how this current government or the next is planning to reduce congestion or improve public transport. Moreover, I am not really sure if we need further loans to repay and whether asking the World Bank for such a substantial amount is a priority nowadays. I mean lets face it, is the degrading road infrastructure the real problem here? or the lack of law enforcement? the lack of urban planning? A traffic system? Its the jungle out there and I have no idea how adding further buses is going to help. What about the Kamikaze mini-vans? The crazy taxis? Convoys of politicians and their sons, daughters, relatives, bodyguards, close friends, rich friends etc

In all cases, until the detailed plan for this initiative is unveiled, its too early to judge but Im not very optimistic about it. I mean look at the Jal el Dib bridge and how its being handled. I dont recall ever seeing such levels of incompetence, carelessness and assholness towards citizens anywhere else in the world. Unless were getting competent foreign and private companies to oversee, manage and implement this project, its never going to work.

The World Bank approved today a US$295 million package ushering in the overhaul of Lebanons decaying transport sector and securing employment for thousands of unskilled Lebanese and Syrian workers. The Greater Beirut Public Transport Project (GBPTP) will jumpstart the countrys first modern public transport system in decades, ease stifling congestions on Lebanese roads, and unlock private finance to a vital infrastructure sector.

GBPTP is the first project to benefit from a newly approved Public-Private Partnership law that aims to attract private investments in infrastructure to ease the financial burdens of a government struggling with high public debt and fiscal imbalances. It is in line with the World Bank Groups own drive for Maximizing Financing for Development (MFD) in member countries, especially those under economic and financial duress.

Lebanon needs to mobilize private investment to stimulate its economy and create jobs while also developing its much-needed infrastructure, Saroj Kumar Jha, World Bank Regional Director for the Mashreq, commented after the Banks Board of Directors endorsed the project. Poor transport connectivity exacerbates the already problematic inequitable growth between Beirut and hinterland regions. It hinders access to employment and services for the poor and other vulnerable groups.

Dangerous times: Mueller widens the Russiagate dragnet by invoking unusual 'conspiracy to defraud government' charge "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Special counsel Robert Mueller and his prosecutors have invoked an unusual "conspiracy to defraud the government" charge to ensnare a Russian cyber network and could use the same legal strategy to go after President Trump and his associates, even if the conspiracy is not linked to a criminal act. Although the president constantly denies any wrongdoing, Mr. Mueller's 10-month-long investigation has become the heart of the Trump-Russian election meddling saga, dominating headlines and leaving the White House tangled in conflict and controversy as additional charges have also been filed against four of his close associates - with further indictments likely. Last month, Mr. Mueller, a Republican and former FBI director, indicted 13 Russian nationals connected to the Internet Research Agency (IRA) Russian "troll farm," accusing the IRA of interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election by spreading fake news stories through U.S. social media. The same approach was employed in securing a plea deal last month with Rick Gates, the aide for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Are you 'fit sick'? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

We normally assume that when people are a healthy weight and seem to live an active lifestyle, they are getting all of the health benefits that are promised from doing this. It is generally assumed that athletes feel full of energy all the time, and don't suffer from a lot of the mood and sleep issues that exercise is generally thought to help with, too. However, some doctors are concerned that there is a new phenomenon called being 'fit sick', where people appear to be doing all of the right things and look healthy on the outside, but actually feel far less healthy in general. What Are Some of The Causes of Being Fit Sick? In most cases, it is the healthy diet and the exercise a person is doing that actually cause them to feel unwell. This is not to say that people do not generally feel better when they are doing these things, or that it is better not to do them, but that people who are embarking on these kinds of lifestyle changes need to do them carefully rather than over-stressing their bodies. Many people with high activity levels are actually deficient in important nutrients or have hormone imbalances due to the way their bodies have an increased demand for things their diet doesn't provide. Equally, people who stick to very rigid diets, either for weight loss in general or because they need to support things like bodybuilding, can be lacking in vital vitamins and minerals, as well as having issues with their gut bacteria.

UH-OH: POTUS Trump Hints Comey Knows Much More About McCabes Lies & Leaks "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On Friday evening, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe on the recommendation of FBI disciplinary officials.

In a statement, Sessions said, Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor including under oath on multiple occasions.

The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity and accountability.

As the OPR proposal stated, all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand, Sessions added.

Hours later, President Trump took to Twitter to laud the move.

Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!

On Saturday, President Trump fired off more tweets about the disgraced FBI official.

Three guidelines for truth-telling "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(Warning - this may get a little philosophical) Should we tell the truth? At face value, it's a question we all most likely would answer in the affirmative. I believe most people would agree that they should tell the truth but at the same time admit that they don't always tell the truth. Some would even suggest there are certain "exceptions" for when we shouldn't tell the truth - times when it's "ok" to fib a little (Hope Hicks might be one of these people). On the surface, truth seems pretty easy to understand, but when you dig deeper, things can get a little more confusing. For the sake of argument (which I enjoy, by the way), we might ask, "well what is the truth exactly?" Does it mean telling it like it is, or telling it like we see it, or telling it like we think it should be? And to go further, you might ask if truth is the same thing or within the same arena as reality. In other words, does what we see in reality amount to truth, or is truth something else altogether - something transcendent, something outside of humanity that gives it its authority. Here, we're not talking about the truth as something we can attest to in the real world but about the idea of truth - Truth with a capital T.

Change by Will or Idle by Hope "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



Source: Atlas News | by Keano Samaritakis

Today's world knows a lot of deception and manipulation mostly expressed via disinformation which causes a lot of confusion and a loss of hope.

Hope, it's something that keeps human souls going and it has for centuries, it offers some sense of relief from the current situation and can be seen as opium for the soul. Without hope there is no achievement because they are perfectly co-related, when an someone has hope in a better future they do everything in their willpower to strive towards that better future. The opposite is when someone has no hope resulting in neglecting self-needs and desires and being victimized by the situation causing a depression of the soul.

Make no mistake though there's a difference between those people who have hope and willpower and those who have hope yet no willpower...

The people that use hope solely to escape reality have integrated a destructive thought pattern in their mind, a dangerous habit which needs to be erased from the mind. In this case hope exerts a weakening force to whoever feeds by it, it's like a drug addict who will life solely to abuse these drug substances and has no room for achievement in life.

Hope it is a good thing to have but shouldn't be your primary feeling although it can be powerful tool to achieve things in life it can be very destructive when influenced or manipulated by external forces including disinformation. There's no coincidence that some people in the earliest of times started to catch up on the workings of the human mind and eventually trying to influence it.

When you're not aware of your thoughts and emotions you will not be truly in charge of your actions. Therefore it's unbelievably important to know the psychological manipulation tactics that are being used on you.Strength comes from being able ask yourself constantly what you're thinking and why your thinking it which includes emotions.

Fundamentals 2: Are You a Citizen?



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

Yesterday I had another hard knock. A reader writing from Wyoming, upset because the State of Wyoming Supreme Court had denied the sovereignty of a man claiming to be a "private citizen".

What else was the State of Wyoming Supreme Court supposed to do?

Claiming to be a "private citizen" is the same exact kind of oxymoron as claiming to be a "sovereign citizen". You cannot be acting in a private capacity and claiming to be a citizen at the same time.

You are either in the Army or out of the Army. There is no in-between.

So-- ask yourself this all-important question: Am I a citizen?

That is:
(1) Am I federal employee or dependent? If so, I am a citizen.
(2) Am I an African- American? If so, I am a citizen, but have Equal Civil Rights.
(3) Am I listed in Title 42 -- a political asylum seeker, recent immigrant, or welfare seeker? If so, I am a citizen.
(4) Am I consciously, willingly operating "as" a federal corporate franchisee in international commerce? If so, I am a citizen.
(5) Was I born in Guam or Puerto Rico or some other legitimate and recognized territory of the United States?

For 90% of Americans, the honest answer to these questions is --- hell, no, I am not a "citizen" and never have been, except for a brief stint in the US military.

So why are you all wandering around nodding your head...

The Russian poison story "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

So you know the poisoning of Sergei Skripal? The incident that is causing British Prime Minister Theresa May to start a war of words with the Russians that could potentially lead to World War III? Well, imagine explaining the story to your MSM-addicted, normie friend: YOU: Hey, did you know the US government has a top secret bioweapon that they use to kill their political enemies? Well, no one has actually proven it exists much less collected any samples of it, but trust me, it exists and they use it. FRIEND: What? Secret bioweapon? No evidence? Ugh! Shut up, burglary theorist! . . . errrr, I mean, Shut up, conspiracy theorist! YOU: Oops, did I say the US government? I meant the Russian government. FRIEND: Oh, the Russian government, you say? Well, then, this sounds perfectly believable. Yes, believe it or not, that is essentially what we are being told by the powers-that-shouldn't-be. "The Russians are using a super secret poison that may or may not exist but we're too busy to provide any evidence for this. Just trust us. Oh, and let's threaten a world nuclear superpower based on this non-evidence, too!" For those not in the know, the case revolves around Sergei Skripal, who the media disingenuously refer to as a "former Russian spy." In this case, "former Russian spy" is a euphemism for "ongoing MI6 double agent." Or, more accurately, "recently poisoned MI6 double agent." That's because Skripal and his daughter were admitted to hospital after passing out on a shopping center bench in Salisbury, England earlier this month. They remain in critical condition. (Or maybe they're already dead. Who knows?) Naturally, in this era of Russiagate hysteria, it took precisely no time at all before the UK government began intimating it was the Russians, and, despite not providing a shred of evidence for that claim, the mockingbird media naturally followed along. "Of course the Russians did it!" we are told by the MSM repeaters. "Evidence, schmevidence. I mean, come on! Poisoning . . . Soviet Union . . . Russians. Do we have to draw you a map?"

Why is AIPAC is suddenly getting a lot of bad press, in Jewish papers and the 'Washington Post'? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One pleasurable surprise of the AIPAC policy conference in early March - the leading Israel lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee - was how much bad press the organization got. It's becoming almost fashionable to criticize the lobby for its enforcement of lockstep political support for Israel in Washington, and for its Soviet-style policy on access to the press. These criticisms are finally showing up in the mainstream press. Reporters have been licensed by the injury mere high school students have done to another powerful lobby, the National Rifle Association. So maybe AIPAC is on the same path-to-pariah status, more than a decade after Walt and Mearsheimer published their book The Israel Lobby. Here are a few items. Notable among them is a report in the Washington Post of all places saying that AIPAC was born to rally American Jews to stand shoulder to shoulder behind Israeli "lies" about a massacre of Palestinians, back in 1953. And two angry pieces in the Jewish press decrying AIPAC's blackout policy on coverage of its gatherings.

UK academic prevented from giving free speech lecture at his own university as spineless officials cave to hard-left threats "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A lecturer has been prevented from giving a talk about free speech at his own university after he was criticised by hard-Left activists. Dr Adam Perkins, who teaches psychology at King's College London, was told his event was being postponed because it had been assessed as 'high risk'. The talk, which was scheduled to take place on campus yesterday, was called The Scientific Importance of Free Speech. But officials became worried it could be gatecrashed by demonstrators who are opposed to Dr Perkins's research.

10 killed as plane crashes into home, tragically wiping out Philippine family "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A small aircraft slammed into a residential area in the Metro Manila region in the Philippines on Saturday, killing all five on board the aircraft as well as five people inside a house who had gathered for a family lunch. The six-seat Piper PA-23 Apache aircraft crashed in Plaridel, Bulacan province, shortly after takeoff at around 11:20am, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) said. The plane was flying from Plaridel Airport to the city of Laoag. Plaridel police chief Agustin Joseph said in a radio interview that the plane hit a house at the time a family was having its lunch there. Three children, their mother, and grandmother were killed according to police superintendent Julio Lizardo.

Boko Haram in Nigeria: They are achieving the mission they have set out to do. We must unite against them. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 

The leader of the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, Professor Ango Abdullahi has voiced his concern about the lingering killings in some parts of Nigeria.

Abdullahi in a statement on Friday said blaming Fulani herdsmen for the killings was political.

Image may contain: 1 person

He noted that killings can only be stopped when there was a right communication.

The statement read: Killings are activities that the government did not envisage but the killings are a challenge to everybody. So, everybody should be blamed for the killings. Communication resolves everything. How much communication is there? And if there are no instruments of communicating, we must establish them rather than buying the weapons of war.

But let me tell you and I am saying it with all sense of responsibility. Many people are playing politics with the killings. They are initiating a particular pattern of belief, which would undermine the credibility of their group in future. We had the Biafran war in 1967 -1970 and the South East held Nigeria to a standstill before it ended. So, nobody could undermine the Nigerian/Biafran war.

Welcome to Hell: Barcelona Taxi Drivers Prepare for Ubers Return. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Uber has taken a more conciliatory approach this time, but taxi drivers are not convinced.

War is about to break out once again between Uber and the highly mobilized taxi drivers of one of its most febrile markets, Barcelona. After three years of absence due to regulatory issues as well as the hostile welcome it received from local taxi associations, the ride-share giant announced this week that it was returning to Spains second largest city.

This time will be different, it says. We are changing the way we work. And Barcelona is no exception. We want to work with local agents to help build a mobility model that is more sustainable, said the company in a statement. The company has long shown a special interest in the Catalan capital because of its tourist influx and potential for business.

Uber marked its Barcelona comeback by placing over 100 advertisements around the city with the tagline, More than a journey. Barcelona, your Uber has arrived. In less than 48 hours, around half of the ads had been defaced, with the word Uber replaced by the word taxi. The companys logo was also concealed and the image of an Uber vehicle swapped for that of a black-and-yellow Barcelona cab.

That was just the beginning. On Thursday night, an estimated 300 taxis blocked access to the citys main bus station, Estacio Nord, to prevent the departure and entry of buses belonging to the transport company Alsa Coaches, which has been closely linked to the sale of the VTC licenses that allow ride share drivers to operate in Spain

Real people are now hailing Waymos robotic taxis, without a driver in sight "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The future arrived, and its a minivan. Waymos fleet of totally driverless cars in Phoenix, Arizona, now lets members of the public hail a ride around the suburbs.

The news: Waymos CEO, John Krafick, announced at SXSW in Austin, Texas, that the firm is offering trips to so-called early ridersthe first people to have signed up to use its robotic Chrysler Pacifica taxis. The minivans dont have a safety driver behind the wheel, but someone can take control remotely if necessary.

Why it matters: The cars have been in testing without a safety driver for a few months. But this long-awaited advance is the first time people have been able to simply hail a totally driver-free ride using an app, as they would an Uber. Its a big moment for a firm that hopes to turn its autonomy tech into a viable business by offering driverless rides.

Dear Ms Ardern: Raise W Papua human rights crimes with Jokowi "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Yanto Awerkion
Yanto Awerkion, a young Papuan activist who was jailed for 'treason' for promoting a petition

STAFF REPORTER | Asia Pacific Report/Pacific Media Watch

AUCKLAND - Advocacy group West Papua Action Auckland has urged New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern to raise human rights and the suffering of the people of Indonesian-ruled West Papua when she meets with President Widodo tomorrow.

President Joko Jokowi Widodo, the leader of the largest economy in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is in New Zealand for a two-day visit.

The West Papua action group released a statement by spokeswoman Maire Leadbeater.

_____________

OUR Melanesian neighbours in West Papua are suffering grievously and must not be overlooked for the sake of good relations or markets for our goods.

For 55 years West Papuan people have been seeking freedom from repressive military rule, imposed on them in a scandalously unfair process. The loss of life is estimated to be at least 100,000.

Even though the struggle is now mainly about peaceful protest, petitions and diplomacy there is no let up in security force crack-downs.

In the last three years the police have adopted a strategy of arresting demonstrators en masse, and thanks to a police chief edict, organisations deemed separatist are denied the opportunity to hold any kind of gathering.

This is a blatant breach of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights to which Indonesia is a signatory.

Yanto Awerkion, a young activist who was promoting an petition calling for the UN decolonisation committee to become involved, has now spent over 9 months in jail on a treason charge. He will be released shortly thanks to international pressure.

Last year the International Coalition for Papua documented 10 cases of extrajudicial killings, when the victims were either shot dead during security force operations or tortured to death in custody.

West Papuans say that they are experiencing slow genocide and this...

Capacitive And Resistive Touch Sensors For Wearables "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When you look at switching solutions for electronic wearables, your options are limited. With a clever application of conductive fabric and thread, you can cobble together a simple switch, but the vast array of switch solutions is much more than that. This one is different. The zPatch from [Paul Strohmeier], [Jarrod Knibbe], [Sebastian Boring], and [Kasper Hornk] at the Human-Centred Computing Section at the University of Copenhagen gives eTextiles capacitive and resistive input. Its a force sensor, a pressure sensor, and a switch, all made completely out of fabric.

The design of this fabric touch sensor is based around a non-woven resistive fabric made by Eeonyx. This fabric is piezo-resistive when compressed. This material is sandwiched between two layers of silver-plated polyamide fabric, which is then connected to the analog input of a microcontroller. On top of all this is a polyester mesh, with everything held together with iron-on sheets.

Reading this sensor with a microcontroller is extremely similar to a capacitive touch sensor made out of copper and FR4. All the code is available in a repo, and all the materials to reproduce this work can be found in the various links provided by the team. That last point reproducibility is huge for an academic work. Not only did the team manage to come up with something interesting, they actually provided enough documentation to reproduce their build.

In the video below, you can see how this sensor can be used to sense a hand hovering, a light touch, a hard press, or anything in between. Only two analog pins are required for each sensor, making the routing and layout of this eTextile should be relatively easy to integrate into clothing. Its a great build, and we cant wait to see the community pick up on these really cool sensors.

This past week saw an enormous outpouring of respect and admiration for Stephen Hawking upon his passing.

In contrast to his frail health in life, his contributions to our understanding of the universe were prodigious and robust. Hawkings elevation of rational and intellectual truth above all else, even his failing body, inspired a generation of science lovers.

Perhaps, too, he represented something in desperately short supply in todays world: intellectual integrity.
