Farmers Market Wayville "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

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

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

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

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

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

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

Internet of Things security issues bleed into 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In 2017 Internet of Things (IoT) devices rose to prominence as attackers have continued to target and use them to support various cyberattacks.

Letting Nazis Speak Is The Best Way To Defeat Their Ideas "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Noah Berlatsky argues regulating hate speech would bring down Nazis and white supremacists in an article for NBC News, claiming unregulated free speech empowers bigots and punishes their targets. But he underestimates the power of free speech.

In truth, letting white nationalists speak doesnt leave us defenseless against their ideas. It actually helps bring them down by giving people a chance to invalidate their ideas in a public space. White nationalism is a deeply emotional idea, which makes its followers susceptible to the right kinds of persuasion.

Racism has its roots in what social psychologist Jonathan Haidt calls our disgust module. According to Haidt, humans evolved a disgust module in our brains so that we wouldnt eat poisonous foods or infected meat. But over time, our disgust module morphed, and now its primarily triggered by outgroup members such as people of a different race.

Haidts theory suggests that the best way to combat racism is to expose racists to the people theyre bigoted towards. If a white supremacist starts talking to a black man, after a few conversations that black man could move from outgroup member in the white supremacists mind and into fellow human being. Daryl Davis, a black musician, has been proving this for years. He makes a hobby of befriending KKK members and convincing them to disavow white supremacy. To date, hes convinced more than 200 KKK members to turn in their robes, including an Imperial Wizard.

Davis fight against Klan ideas wouldnt be possible if Klan members were censored. In a world where nobody is allowed to voice white nationalist sentiments, how would Davis know who to target? How would he know which Klan arguments to rebut, if those arguments couldnt be raised in the first place?

Give them a platform, Davis said of his methods. You challenge them.

Berlatsky claims that the United States should adopt hate speech regulations like Germany and France. But censorship in these countries works better on paper than in reality. Former National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen was convicted under Frances over-broad anti-speech laws of...

Chicago Is Right. The Feds Cant Legally Withhold Grant Funding Over Sanctuary Cities "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Juan Jose Dominguez-De La Parra. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez. Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate. All arrested multiple times, in five different states. All deported multiple times. And all the same man who freely wandered the streets of San Francisco the night he shot 32-year old Kate Steinle as she walked with her father on Pier-14. All because the sanctuary city released him from jail instead of allowing Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to arrest and deport Zarate.

Chicago, too, boasts of its refusal to cooperate with federal agents on immigration, though it adapted the name to Welcoming City. The policy was formally enacted as an ordinance in 2006, following years of mayoral executive orders implementing it. Chicago claims this Welcoming City policy seeks to remove barriers to the cooperation of all persons, both documented citizens and those without documentation status. Assisting in immigration enforcement would, according to City leaders, threat[en] immigrants and minority profiling and harassment and chill effective local law enforcement as fear of deportation led witnesses and victims to avoid cooperation with police.

But federal officials are not asking Chicago or San Francisco, or any other municipality, to profile residents, check immigration status of witnesses or victims or even individuals temporarily detained during traffic stops, or assist in immigration enforcement.

The federal government merely wants cities to inform the Department of Homeland Security of the scheduled release date for specific aliens, something San Francisco failed to do with dire consequences. And the federal government needs cities to allow its agents access to correctional facilities to meet with aliens and to inquire as to such individuals right to be or remain in the United States, so they can potentially uncover the true identity of the arrestee in a sea swimming with aliases.

Continued defiance from liberal cities on this subject led the Department of Justice in 2017 to require a minimal level of cooperation as a condition for receiving a federal grant known as the Byrne JAG grant program. Chicago, which has received funding under this grant every year since its inception including $33 million to purchase nearly 1,000 police cruisers has chosen to file suit in a federal district court in Chicago over the conditions, rather than cooperate.

Judge Harry D. Leinenweber, a Ronald Reagan appointee, entered a preliminary injunction against the federal government, ruling the DOJ lacked authority to make notifying DHS of the impending release of aliens or giving DHS agents access to question arrestees a condition of the grant. Leinenweber further ruled that the DOJ could not enforce the conditions on any sanctuary city not merely the City of Chicago. The government immediately appealed the ruling to the Seventh Circuit Cou...

#MeToo Repels Men By Infantilizing Women With Petty Complaints "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This week, a woman who dated actor Aziz Ansari went to Babe.com to complain he continually made advances despite her non-verbal cues that she wasnt interested. Sarah Tither-Kaplan took to Twitter last week to accuse James Franco of exploiting her, notwithstanding the contract she voluntarily signed to pose nude for his movies because, in her words, I 100% did not feel like I had a choice to say no.

This is the latest from the #MeToo movement: women who freely enter into consensual relations with a man, or even contract, can apparently later revoke consent on the specious grounds that it was never theirs to give. Like children entering into a contract with an adult, a woman who faces a so-called power differential cant really say no.

Some Trial and Error Is Par for the Course

When I was in my twenties and still dating, the quickest way a suitor could ruin things was by asking permission to kiss me. A request at once so innocuously sweet, so harmless and timid and proper, it practically begged for refusal.

What a man was supposed to do, what red-blooded American men have done for as long as there have been American movies to show them how, was to just do it, as Nike would have it. Take a risk. Prove himself worthy with a show of fearlessness a woman might just choose to reward. Only then would he discover whether hed won the round or fallen flat, bloody but unbowed.

Unwanted sexual advance describes practically every date Ive ever had with a man I wasnt interested in. Dating in America has never been a fair sport, but it has long allowed each player to accept or reject the other, for any or no reason at all. An imperfect sorting system, where we fumble through a maze in search of our idiosyncratic prize, advancing in self-knowledge along the way.

This Environment Makes Men Wary of Women

Sexual advance has always been one move in a board game whose first square might be a library, a classroom, or yes, even an office. Where adults behave reasonably, even an unwanted advance shouldnt be a crime or grounds for a lawsuit. A mistake, maybe. Faux pas at worst. Assuming the suitor accepts his rejection: no harm, no foul.

Not anymore. Recently, several married male friends admitted that they no longer speak to women at work when they can avoid it. Theyre sincerely afraid something they say might be taken badly, that they might find themselves fired or sued, which is about right. In the social shambles left by #MeToo, we seem utterly unsure of the rules of engagement between the sexes, except this one: men should be wary of us. Women who fought for equal footing in the workplace have become, as tort law would have it, an attractive nuisance.

This is not to deny the corrective power of #MeToo. Hollywood....

Before We Go To War With North Korea, The President Owes Americans A Public Debate "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Trump administrations rhetoric about North Korea is sounding eerily and increasingly like the rhetoric that the George W. Bush administration used in the run-up to the Iraq war.

The U.S. Army has begun training thousands of soldiers in how to engage in tunnel warfare, in preparation for the honeycomb of tunnels and bunkers that dot the North Korean countryside. In October, the Pentagon sent a letter to Congress outlining what would be at stake for U.S. forces in the event of a ground invasion on the Korean peninsula.

The North Korean question is very much on the minds of the Trump administration. The Joint Chiefs of Staff are reportedly particularly focused on the North Korean threat, and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has highlighted the need to ensure that we have military options that our president can employ if needed. Trumps national security advisor, H.R. McMaster, went one step further, telling the nation that preventative war against North Korea may indeed be in the offing.

That a war with North Korea would be horrific is without question. War is hell, as William Tecumseh Sherman was fond of saying, and modern warfare is certainly no exception, particularly given the threat of a nuclear attack. It is partially for this reason that Americas founders made extra attempts to ensure the president could not wage war on his own, without the consent of Congress. While Article II of the Constitution makes the president the commander-in-chief, and later laws give him the authority to repel sudden attacks, it does not afford him the power to declare war. That role solely resides with Congress.

Congress Needs to Do Its Job

Even Alexander Hamilton, who favored a strong executive, emphasized in Federalist 69 that the president lacked the power to unilaterally take the nation to war. Likewise, President James Madison, in the run-up to the War of 1812,...

How Michael Larson Exploited A Loophole To Win A Game Show Fortune "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

On Sunday, the Game Show Network (GSN) aired a special whose title referred to the scandal on the 1980s hit game show Press Your Luck. Promotions for the documentary even referred to the incident as the greatest scandal in game show history.

But compared to the quiz show controversies of the 1950sin which producers rigged outcomes by giving contestants answers prior to show tapingsthe Press Your Luck scandal qualifies as nothing of the sort.

On Press Your Luck, the contestant in question merely used knowledge of the game to increase his odds of winning. As with a blackjack expert at counting cards who takes a casino to the proverbial cleaners, his actions neither violated the law, nor any standards that would warrant the ignominy that the scandal moniker connotes.

Doing Game Show Homework

Press Your Luck, which premiered in September 1983, featured players taking turns at a game board filled with various cash amounts, prizes, and the dreaded Whammywhich, when landed upon, took away all a players money. Players answered questions to earn spins, which each gave a contestant one chance to control the game board. With each spin, contestants would either win the cash or prize they landed on, or, in the case of a Whammy, lose their winnings to that point.

When CBS, which broadcast Press Your Luck, first premiered the game, it only used a handful of computer-generated sequences to randomize the indicator on the game board that the contestant stopped to determine the prize he or she would receiveor, on an average of one in six spins, a Whammy. A technological marvel for its day, the boards computing power proved primitive by twenty-first-century standards. But at the time, CBS and Bill Carruthers, the shows creator, felt that the handful of sequences would represent a sufficiently complex and random pattern that contestants could not decipher it.

Unfortunately for them, however, Michael Larson, an Ohio ice-cream truck driver with a proclivity for get-rich quick schemes, took both the time and energy to do so. Armed with a video cassette recorder, he recorded episodes of the show, watching in slow-motion to discern the patterns, and even using the pause button to mimic the shows spins.

While learning the pattern of sequences, Larson discovered two other key facts: Two squares on the 18-square game board never contained a Whammyand, in the shows second round, always contained additional spins.

With these three pieces of information, Larson had the ability to turn Press Your Luck into a real-life ATM. By understanding the seemingly random, but in reality quite predictable, game board patterns, Larson could use every spin to win dollarsand additional spinsa...

Why SpaceX Is The Snake Oil Peddler Of The Twenty-First Century "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the nineteenth century, Americans across the country were mesmerized by miracle elixirs, better known as medicine shows, which offered cure-alls for everything in the book. Diseases? There was a drink for that. Wrinkles? There was a magic cream for that too. These traveling shows did far more than heal, they entertained. Freak shows, magic tricks, and storytelling, among other fun activities, were included on the lists of offerings.

For many, these flamboyant events were awe-inspiring that is, until the country realized these miracle cures were almost completely ineffective. Over time, an increasing number of Americans began referring to these big promisers as snake oil salesmen. By the next century, most disappeared, as did their outrageous claims.

Worrisome national security events that transpired this week have convinced some Americans that SpaceX, a rocket manufacturer and launcher for national security missions, is the magic elixir of this generation only this time, the magic pills in question are not only often ineffective, theyre also affecting the countrys national security.

Akin to the once-beloved nineteenth-century miracle workers, SpaceX often tries to entertain onlookers with flashy proclamations. It has pledged nearly unfeasible feats, such as sending humans beyond the Moon by the end of the year and potentially landing spaceships on Mars by 2022 both of which will allegedly occur on rockets that have either failed to get off the ground or have had trouble doing so. It is not without a sense of irony that the CEO of SpaceX suggested those few who decide to go to Mars may not live to tell about it.

It is hard to criticize SpaceXs public relations strategy. After all, it is competing against some of Americas most prominent companies, so drumming up eye-popping media coverage is a must. But past and possible present operational concerns have led some to seriously question the company.

SpaceX attempted to launch a billion-dollar classified government satellite on Sunday, coined Zuma, for an unknown government agency. No one knows if it succeeded, but many have expressed skepticism, citing possible errors on SpaceXs end.

There is plenty of reason for concern on the part of SpaceX, primarily because of past issues with the Zuma mission itself. Zuma was initially set to launch in November, but experienced several delays before its...

Youll Really Want An Undo Button When You Accidentally Send A Ballistic Missile Warning "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hawaiians started their weekend with quite a fright, waking up Saturday morning to a ballistic missile alert that turned out to be a false alarm. In between the public anger, profuse apologies from officials, and geopolitical commentary, it might be hard to find some information for the more technical-minded. For this audience, The Atlantic has compiled a brief history of infrastructure behind emergency alerts.

As a system intended to announce life-critical information when seconds count, all information on the system is prepared ahead of time for immediate delivery. As a large hodgepodge linking together multiple government IT systems, theres no surprise it is unwieldy to use. These two aspects collided Saturday morning: there was no prepared Sorry, false alarm retraction message so one had to be built from scratch using specialized equipment, uploaded across systems, and broadcast 38 minutes after the initial false alarm. In the context of government bureaucracy, that was really fast and must have required hacking through red tape behind the scenes.

However, a single persons mistake causing such chaos and requiring that much time to correct is unacceptable. This episode has already prompted a lot of questions whose answers will hopefully improve the alert system for everyones benefit. At the very least, a retraction is now part of the list of prepared messages. But weve also attracted attention of malicious hackers to this system with obvious problems in design, in implementation, and also has access to emergency broadcast channels. The system needs to be fixed before any more chaotic false alarms either accidental or malicious erode its credibility.

Weve covered both the cold-war era CONELRAD and the more recent Emergency Broadcast System. Weve also seen Dallas tornado siren warning system hacked. They werent the first, they wont be the last.

Russia Destroys Worlds First Drone Swarm Attack, 1981 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

- Jeevy Computers: Move up to business-level computer protection. 800-844-8613 http://jeevycomputers.com/pcs/ Good morning, Im still reporting on: Russia Destroys Worlds First Drone Swarm Attack, 1981 Synopsis: The Russian military stationed in western Syria fought off the worlds first militarized swarm of drones the night of Jan. 5th-6th. As darkness fell Russian radar detected a swarm of 13 drones headed towards two of their bases from a significant distance away. Ten of the assault drones attacked the new Russian air base and 3 attacked the naval base. But for some reason the Russians were ready. Their Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missiles destroyed even of the incoming drones, and the other six were hacked with radio equipment. Three of those six did manage to drop explosives which appeared to be modified mortar rounds, severely damaging 2 Russian fighter-bombers before being brought down. Flight data indicates that the GPS-guided drones were launched by terrorists at a distance of about 62 miles away. The drones were cheaply-constructed airplane-like aircraft with about a 6-foot wingspan, but guided by very sophisticated GPS satellite navigation systems. The Russian Defense Ministry said that the sophistication of the nav systems indicated that the attack was supported by what they called a technologically advanced state. Russian specialists are trying to determine the origin of those nav system. Support Our Sponsors: - Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN.

Why They Are Calling Trump a Racist, 1980 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

- Nobel Gold: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Or Call - 877-646-5347 Good evening, Im still reporting on: Why They Are Calling Trump a Racist, 1980 Synopsis: Why are the Desperate Dems so determined to brand the tag racist onto President Trump. Everyone who knows him has said just what he says, He is the least racist person you have ever interviewed. Well, sad to say, but true; the Desperate Dems are just pursuing old communist propaganda methodology if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. Of course, the problem is that in anything short of a totalitarian society, eventually people realize that it was just a lie and you are just a recidivist liar. But the Dems cant afford to worry about their reputations. They MUST win back at least the House in 2018, then defeat Trump in 2020, or they are done for a generation. Otherwise, Trump will succeed at making America great again. The problem is this desperate strategy is not going well. Two new polls show President Trumps support among black voters has more than doubled since the 2016 election. His approval rating with blacks was a mere 8% on election day, and yet that 8% made the difference in several key states where the voting was very close. But since then, Trump has been doing everything he can to push employers to hire Americans instead of low-wage migrants. The result is already kicking in. Trumps average approval rating across all of 2017 is now 17% - more than twice as high as it was in Nov. 2016, according to a huge new poll published in the uber-leftist Atlantic. Even the New York Times had to admit on Saturday: Employment gains have been especially strong for African-Americans [falling] to 6.8% in November [2017], the lowest rate on record.

Toronto: Alleged scissors attack on 11yo girl's hijab that triggered outcry 'did not happen', say police "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Toronto police have confirmed that an alleged scissors attack on a schoolgirl's hijab, which sparked widespread outrage including a public condemnation by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, was a hoax. An 11-year-old girl claimed on Friday that a man twice tried to cut off her hijab as she walked to school with her brother. Police say the investigation is now concluded and "the events described in the original news release did not happen." It's still not clear why the girl reported the false incident. The story captured national attention and was denounced by Prime Minister Trudeau, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Toronto Mayor John Tory.

Pope Francis has warned that the world is just "one accident" away from a nuclear holocaust the likes of which we have never seen, drawing on imagery from the Second World War to illustrate his point. Following Hawaii's ballistic missile attack false alarm last week, which raised fears of a possible nuclear exchange with North Korea, the Pope was asked whether he felt there was any real danger of nuclear war. "I think we are at the very limit. I am really afraid of this. One accident is enough to precipitate things," he replied.

A Look Into The Belief Of The Reincarnation Of The Soul According To Hinduism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Alanna Ketler

Reincarnation According To Hinduism

According to Hinduism, a soul will reincarnate again and again on Earth until it has learned all its lessons, evolved and then reunites with Source. During this process the soul will enter into many bodies being born again and again and dying again and again, assuming many different forms until it has learned all of the lessons it set out to learn. This concept is summarized in the following verse of the Bhagavad gita:

Just as a man discards worn out clothes and puts on new clothes, the soul discards worn out bodies and ears new ones. (2.22)

According to Hinduism, a soul has to live many different lifetimes and undergo a substantial amount of various experiences before it attains perfection and becomes one with the Divine, or Source, or God, or whatever it is that you feel comfortable calling, It. The Hin...

Imagination and will in the Anthropocene "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

How can we face up to the enormity of environmental collapse? How can we collectively build a politics for the Anthropocene? An interview with activist and former climate diplomat John Ashton CBE.

How can we face up to the enormity of environmental collapse? How can we collectively build a politics for the Anthropocene? Laurie Laybourn-Langton interviews activist and former climate diplomat John Ashton. Laurie Laybourn-Langton (LL-L): Youve been at the forefront of combatting climate change through your role at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and by founding E3G, the climate change thinktank, among others. The concept of the Anthropocene goes beyond climate, to bring in the wider picture of environmental degradation and its causes. Is the word a useful addition to the vernacular to provide focus in a way that climate change or the environment, arguably, did in the past? John Ashton (JA): I would argue that the idea of the Anthropocene goes further. Its about the relationship between human beings and nature, but its also about the relationship between human beings and each other. The ecological fabric and the social fabric are inseparable. You cant address a problem unless you can talk about it, and you cant talk about it unless you can name it. But my gut feeling is that the word Anthropocene is never really going to be part of anybodys vernacular, but at least it plants a flag in the ground. I think it will be much easier to build a politics of the Anthropocene from the left because of its focus on collective responsibility and justice. For me there is nothing more fundamental to the Anthropocene than trying to address the enormous injustice which is inherent in the way we collectively conduct ourselves at the moment. We have built a political and economic system which is based on plunder, and the most heinous example of that plunder is that which is being and has been carried out by my generation I am 60 years old. Were not wrecking our futures nearly as much as were wrecking the future of your generation. Your generation can no longer take it for granted that you have a prospect of a better life than mine, whatever that means. This is an extraordinary conclusion to be reaching because it would represent a collapse of everything we thought we had built, particularly with and since the Enlightenment. If I were your age, I would probably be fearful of the future rather than looking forward to it. LL-L: There is a view that, in an era of potentially exponential environmental change, exponentially accelerating technical ability will enable us to address it. Therefore, we will be fine because we will invent our way out of the problem. Do you agree? JA: I think that...

Google is expanding its sprawling network of undersea cables to plug into new regions around the world, in a bid to speed up its cloud-computing business and catch up to rivals Microsoft Corp. and Amazon.com Inc.

The search-engine operator has plans to build three new underwater fiber-optic cables lining ocean areas from the Pacific to the North Sea, extending its private data network to regions competitors havent touched with similar projects.

The cables, expected to be finished in 2019, are designed to speed the transfer of data and reroute users to servers around the globe if a region fails or gets overloaded.

Lafarge investigation: Company accused of destroying evidence in terror financing probe. FRANCE24s Dorothe Kellou, who broke the story, tells us more on set.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

How a French construction corporation co-financed the terror of ISIS

Today, 06:42
Updated at 09:19

For years, ISIS was able to stand on its own feet in Syria and Iraq and finance terrorist attacks. In France, it is becoming increasingly clear how these cash flows could run. For example, construction corporation Lafarge paid bribes to the terror organization between 2011 and 2015. In total, 13 million euros were paid to ISIS and other terrorist groups, according to leaked documents.

Lafarge paid that money because it wanted to keep its cement factory in the vicinity of Raqqa open. In 2013 that region was in the hands of ISIS. There were roadblocks everywhere and the fuel supply was also in the hands of the terrorists and their confidants.

The company therefore decided to pay ISIS, to buy fuel, to run the factory and to ensure that their trucks were allowed to pass the checkpoints, says lawyer Marie Dos, who represents 11 former employee...

Hear Dolores ORiordans Beautifully-Pained Vocals in the Isolated Track for The Cranberries 1994 Hit Zombie "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Yesterday, amidst the many tributes and inevitable dissention over the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., a sad piece of news seemed to get buried: the death of Cranberries singer Dolores ORiordan, at the far-too-young age of 46. The Irish vocalist not only defined the sound of The Cranberries, as her NPR obituary notes, she defined the sound of the 90s. Anyone who remembers the decade remembers spending a substantial part of it with Cranberries hits Linger, Dreams, and Zombie looping in their heads.

Just 18 when she auditioned for them in 1989, ORiordan took the band from what might have been rather formulaic mopey, jangly dreampop and gave it a smoky hue in full cry as well as a sweet, delicate tone that evoked centuries of Gaelic folk tradition. Like another recent, tragic loss from the Gen X heydaySoundgarden singer Chris Cornellshe fully embodied passionate intensity with a voice that was an arresting force.

Slow the Cars "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

We design our streets like roads, as if their primary function -- and sometimes their sole function -- is the movement of automobiles.

Many people dont grasp the difference between a street and a road. They think the terms are interchangeable, and rightly so. In the United States, weve spent decades -- and trillions of dollars -- blurring the distinctions.

Streets and Roads

To make our cities financially strong and successful, we need to reclaim the lost art of building great streets, and we must empower our transportation professionals to build high-performance roadways. There is a serious difference between those two pursuits.

Streets: The function of a street is to serve as a platform for building wealth. On a street, we're attempting to grow the complex ecosystem that produces community wealth. In these environments, people (outside of their automobiles) are the indicator species of success. Successful streets are environments where humans, and human interaction, flourish.

Roads: In contrast, the function of a road is to connect productive places. You can think of a road as a refinement of the railroad a road on rails where people board in one place, depart in another and there is a high speed connection between the two.

With a street, were trying to build a place. With a road, were trying to get from one place to another. Street emphasize wealth creation. Roads are about movement.

Why is this distinction important?

dothemath.png

Designing our streets as if they were roads creates three fundamental and interrelated  problems.

First, its really expensive. We spend a lot more money on everything from engineering to asphalt when we overbuild our streets. And because poorly designed streets suppress demand for biking and walking -- two lower cost alternatives -- it actually induces even more demand for transportation spending.

Second, poorly designed streets drive down the taxpayers return-on-investment. In general, the more auto-oriented a development pattern is,...

New Delhi: If a person sleeps at 9:30 pm and wakes up at 6:30 am, how many hours did they sleep? If a t-shirt is priced at Rs 300 and the shop is offering a 10% discount, how much money would you need to buy it? If three chlorine tablets are needed to purify 15 litres of water, how many chlorine tablets are needed for 35 litres of water? On a map of India, can you point and show which state you live in?

These are some of the questions which 28,323 youths, aged between 14 and 18, were asked during the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER)-Rural, 2017.

This round of the annual survey has been concerned with children in the age bracket of 14 to 18. Fourteen is the age up to which the government guarantees free and compulsory education, and just four years later, these young people will become adults, says the report. So the report has looked at what skills and abilities these children will need to be ready for productive lives as adults.

The Swedish government is warning its citizens to be prepared to survive on their own for at least a week, which is unusual advice for Sweden to dispense. Is there trouble on the horizon? Shortly before Christmas, the Swedish government quietly published a paper called "Resilience."

The government itself wants to be prepared for a 3-month long civil emergency and they're urging citizens to take responsibility, too. It really makes you wonder what is looming ahead, doesn't it?

Coercion a problem larger than authentication "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Technical solutions for authentication are orthogonal to political abuse of power structures

Three friends contemplate the bad takes on FaceID and authoritarian regimes.

Before the release of the iPhone X there were some assessments of the security value of FaceID against authoritarian governments, as well as how secure it would actually be (pretty secure, it turns out). It seems appropriate to address the flawed understanding of security threats prompted by the FaceID authentication mechanism received when it was announced. What was particularly frustrating was the deep confusion around how coercion works at different levels and why the sinister threat of authoritarian regimes is a poor threat model to apply to authentication mechanism security. It is popular to ask how will this technology enable abuse by authoritarian regimes, but the people asking that question, and the fantasy logic they use constructing threat models, needs the cold water of reality.

You cant solve social problems with technology

Your threat model is wrongnomore wrong.

Very few people face nation state adversaries (sorry Western activists, youre not on anyones radar.) Most of those who do, explicitly signed up for it (foreign service departments, intelligence services, terrorist groups, transnational criminal groups), although some just fell into it (dissidents). The former group, well, they have the resources and expertise to play the game. The latter group typically do not. They lack security training, security experience (although they gain it the hard way), and they have essentially no access to security assistance. They typically use available platforms for organising, coordinating, and messaging (read: Facebook, Facebook, other social media platforms like Twitter, and mobile phones...with Facebook.)

There are very important reasons why dissident groups use Facebook (other than Metcalfes Law):

  • Exposure Dissident groups must be visible and public, otherwise not only are they failing to reach their target audience but they run the risk of being labeled terrorists (so most covert communications technology is a terrible fit for themthey need billboards and broadsheets, not digital dead drops and chalk signs.) Of course, everyone deserves (and needs)the privacy of need secure ephemeral communications.

The SDF and the Kurds are under control of the PKK/YPK, a terrorist organization that is nearly daily fighting and killing Turkish forces within Turkey. The Arabs which ostensibly shall seal the area off from the rest of Syria are most likely tribal forces that were earlier aligned with the Islamic State. The Turks were not consulted before the U.S. move and are of course not amused that a "terrorist gang", trained and armed by the U.S., will control a long stretch of their southern border. Any Turkish government would have to take harsh measures to prevent such a strategic threat to the country: Such initiatives endangering our national security and Syrias territorial integrity through the continuation of cooperation with PYD/YPG in contradiction with the commitments and statements made by the US are unacceptable.

Former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice cautioned against turning women into "snowflakes" as she weighed in on the ongoing #MeToo movement. She called it a positive thing that risks doing more harm than good. In an interview with CNN's David Axelrod on 'The Axe Files,' Rice said that the ongoing movement to reveal sexual improprieties committed by certain men is a "good thing," but she warns it could go too far. "I do think we have to be a little bit careful. Let's not turn women into snowflakes. Let's not infantilize women," Rice said, using the derogatory term 'snowflake' used to describe the new generation of youth who - as their critics contend - are overly politically correct and prone to take offense when challenged by ideas that do not conform to their worldview.

Insights and Explorations: The Akashic Records  The Cellular Memory of the Universe "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Shem El-Jamal

There are many concepts within the esoteric world that many of us do not fully understand. It may be this lack of understanding that compels us to venture into these concepts more than we do the hard data we might find in conventional science. Though reliable science can yield some very profound facts about life and our universe, it seems that there is some unique appeal in seeking out the hidden truths with the supernatural.

There are many experiences that a soul can have in life. These can range from that which seems fairly mundane to those which are jaw-dropping and unforgettable. Yet even with the most profound experiences, the possibility that we have lived hundreds or even thousands of other lifetimes seems to stand out significantly. In fact, this notion could easily leave ones head spinning.

I dont remember living in another place, in another time period, or in another body. These are some of the thoughts we may have had when we first learned of this possibility. Yet virtually all religious texts of ancient times refer to life being not a singular incarnation, but to consist of numerous, layered experiencesall having meanings and lessons of their own.

The Akashic Records could be said to be the amalgamated records of all of these experiences which each soul has had. This possibility leads us to consider how a person might axes these records if they exist, what they might find, and how they might learn and benefit from realizing and appreciating their own forgotten experiences as a soul.

The possibility that these records are real and accessible to a soul who has the intent to seek them out can be an exciting thought to have. However, we might also keep in mind that everything we experience may simply be an illusion; a game; a chosen activity for the infinite soul which each of us is said to be. In this caseas amazing as the thought of such records might bethese records simply represent our experiences within the illusion of the finite. In reality, we may be limitless in potential and identity.

Corporate Powers Are Stealing Online Identities, Posting Fake Comments To Push For Consumer Law Repeals "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Forget Russian fake news for a moment. Another extremely consequential privacy-breaching, identity-theft hack is undermining our democracy and almost certainly being perpetuated by corporate America. A pattern of cyber deception is appearing across the federal government in the nooks and crannies of the process where White House directives or Congress laws are turned into the rules Americans must abide byor in the Trump era, are repealed. Hundreds of thousands of comments, purportedly made by Americans, have come in over the electronic transom to at least five different federal agencies calling for an end to Obama-era consumer protections and other regulations that impede profits, a series of investigative reports by the Wall Street Journal found. Except, the people who supposedly sent these comments never did.

Mexico before the election storm "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

All rights reserved.Although the electoral campaign officially opens in March, the main candidates for the presidency of Mexico are already defined and take advantage of the pre-candidacy period within their parties and coalitions to proselytize and position themselves in the race.

Thus begins a marathon campaign: six months of wasteful spending of public resources, showers of promises, spots, adverts, posters, slogans, chants, debates, discrediting, accusations, rumors, intrigues and, given the countrys context and the actors who inhabit it, also some episodes of violence whose magnitude and scope are difficult to foresee.

Progressive candidate Andrs Manuel Lpez Obrador (AMLO for short) got into the pre-election struggle early, as is his custom, and has been intensifying his touring of the country since last year and working on the design of the program and his campaign team - both, by the way, noticeably more conservative than in his previous two runs for the presidency.

AMLO has chosen a rather less leftist and more popular-national and plebeian profile, with a hint of anti-neoliberalism and democratization calls in an anti-oligarchic sense.

AMLO is currently leading the polls, to a large extent because of his early start, because this is his third try, because of the visibility and the media exposure he gets for his charisma and the attacks of his opponents, and because he has created a national party fashioned in his image an...

Its that bad "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Intelligence agencies are (unsurprisingly) cagey about their activities. Every time we get a chance to peek under the mask, we learn more about how bad it is. The Liberals, who inherited Conservative policy that characterizes environmentalists and indigenous activists (there is plenty of overlap) as a domestic terrorist threat, have done little more than spew hot air, keeping the worst of the human rights violations from Conservative policy.

This is what that looks like.

The records detailing monitoring of individual activists and leaders speak to a larger pattern of surveillance against non-violent dissent, Indigenous-led social movements and their allies. As APTN reported in relation to the documents referring to Thomas-Muller, RCMP records also listed a number of groups as involved persons, including the Defenders of the Land, Direct Action in Canada for Climate Justice, Ontario Public Interest Research Group, Ruckus Society, Global Justice Ecology Project, Sea to Sands Conservation Alliance, Canadian Youth Climate Coalition, the Indigenous Action Movement and the Wetsuweten Direct Action Camp. In 2014, the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) filed complaints against both the RCMP and CSIS, alleging unlawful surveillance against opponents of Northern Gateway that included many of the same organizations. While the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP launched an independent investigation, the Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC) (the body responsible for CSIS oversight) instead held a series of secret hearings. They issued a decision in 2015, but barred the BCCLA from speaking about the outcome. The BCCLA has since applied for judicial review of this decision.

Just last month, documents obtained by VICE News demonstrate that the RCMP surveilled Indigenous activists who constructed a Tipi on Parliament Hill as part of Idle No Mores Unsettling Canada 150, a campaign coinciding with 150 years since Canadian confederation. Idle No More has come under government scrutiny on other occasions: in 2015 documents...

Bitcoin Cash now has its own Native Bitcoinj Development Branch "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

For those unaware of what Bitcoinj does, allow us to explain. It is a project best known for being a cornerstone of the Bitcoin ecosystem. In its original state, it was the second Bitcoin implementation and the first to target SPV light wallet functionality. Not everyone wants to run a desktop client or full node on their machine at all times. Moreover, SPV functionality is very important when it comes to mobile cryptocurrency wallets.Most Android wallets make use of Bitcoinj as we speak.

Bitcoinj Cash is Open for Business

With Bitcoinj Cash, the goal is to unify all forks for BCH. More specifically, a lot of forked versions of this SPV implementation exist. Unifying them all under one banner will make it easier for everyone involved. Moreover, the team hopes to engage more community members to contribute to this particular branch of development. No one can deny Bitcoin Cash has a strong and vibrant community right now. Solutions like these will only improve the overall ecosystem.

As a result of this new branch, we will see more mobile wallets support Bitcoinj Cash. Some might even switch over from BTC to BCH full-time. HashEngineerings Android wallet is switching over to Bitcoinj Cash in the near future. Moreover, the Lighthouse project which has all but been forgotten may be revived thanks to this new implementation. Crowdfunding through Bitcoin has always been a great concept. Unfortunately, it also became impossible due to mounting fees and slow transactions. With BCH, this option becomes viable again.

It is also important to note this new development branch will not just focus on SPV wallets. Instead, the team wants to expand upon its functionali...

Mayor Claar locks down Clow UFO Base (Fiction) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Reporter X

UFOIn a surprise announcement, Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar locked down Clow UFO Base for the next two weeks.

This is for the safety of all our visitors, said Claar.  This is for many reasons.  Weve received reports of nonspecific but credible threats to visiting aliens.  We are also concerned about rising tensions between Bolingbrook and NapervilleTensions that I feel are being stoked by an anonymous Facebook page.  Intelligence officials are also warning about disruptive individuals moving into our neighboring suburbs.  So, as mayor and head administrator of Clow UFO Base, I am confining all of our visitors until I deem outside conditions safe.

Oigoply, a resident of Proxima Centauri, denounced the confinement: I came all the way to  Bolingbrook just to try Ko Sushi.  Now Im stuck here.

Loigdee, a resident of Barnards Star 3, was also disappointed: I was upset when the WeatherTech store at Clow closed.  Now I find out that I cant go to the factory store.  I really wanted to buy a dozen floor protectors before my trip to Venus.  The locals love eating them. Rogers actions are going to have a negative effect on the interplanetary economy.  I thought those huge tax cuts were going to help grow businesses, not shrink them.

Clow officials denied that the lockdown was an attempt to depress turnout at both the Chicago March to the Polls on January 20 and the Naperville March to the Polls rally on January 21:

Why would we want to affect the turnout for an unpopular event that will give our visitors the impression that Trump is unpopular and that Democrats have a chance to win the Illinois Sixth Congressional District?

When called, a receptionist for Claar said he was busy and could not be disturbed.

In the background, a man who sounded like Claar said: So you need a job?  I heard that Francescas is hiring waiters.  Youd have to shaveWhat?  You want to work for me as a consultant?  Why would I take your advice?  You lost an Alabama Senate seat to the Democrat Party.  What?  You say you can help me?  Help me do what?  Hand over control of the Village Board to the Bolingbrook United Party?  Really?  You and what billionaire are going to drive me out of office?

Worldwide: June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

J11

Over the years, June 11th Day Of Solidarity with Marius Mason and All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners has supported and highlighted dozens of prisoners. More recently we have been trying to include more prisoners from outside the U.S. to avoid falling into the easy path of U.S-centrism and to more faithfully represent the rich, expansive anarchist and anti-authoritarian struggles across the globe. (You can find out more at june11.org).

It is with this in mind that we are asking for your help to translate and spread this short message.

We know there are many prisoners whose stories have not made it to us, or with whom it has been difficult to establish contact. While June 11th focuses on anarchist and long-term prisoners, these are not strict qualities. We are eager to support anti-authoritarian prisoners of many stripes and from many struggles. June 11th aims to keep on our lips the names of comrades who are locked away from many years, long after many have otherwise drifted into the background as there are always new struggles, new emergencies, and more friends being targeted by the state. We generally use about a ten year sentence as a bench mark, but are currently supporting some prisoners who are serving 6 or 7. We dont make this distinction to diminish the experience of comrades being removed from their communities and tortured for fewer years, but as an acknowle...

Battle Stations: U.S. and China Prepare for Trade Clash of the Titans "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A record Chinese annual trade surplus with the U.S. is the potential catalyst for hostilities

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, suit

Donald Trump and Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago, January 2017

 

Updated Jan. 16, 2018 5:33 a.m. ET

SHANGHAIThe last time Washington mobilized for a trade war, Ronald Reagan was president and Japan the adversary.

Today, the White House is readying the same big gunsa mix of tariffs and quotasaimed mainly at Chinese imports. It has in its sights everything from steel to solar panels and washing machines. A record Chinese annual trade surplus with the U.S., announced last week, is the potential catalyst for hostilities after a year of bluster from President Donald Trump.

A trade war isnt a certainty, but if it comes, it will look nothing like the battles that raged in the 1980s over Japanese semiconductors, cars and TV sets.

The forces are more evenly matched this time: America has never faced off in a trade skirmish with an opponent like China in terms of economic size, industrial capabilities and global ambitions.

Japan was a U.S. ally, China increasingly a rival. That raises the risk of tit-for-tat escalation, especially since support for Beijing is crumbling across the U.S. political spectrum as well as in the U.S. business community, traditionally a strong advocate for China trade.

In this brewing battle fueled by protectionists in both camps (Mr. Trumps America First finds its nationalist counterpoint in President Xi Jinpings China Dream), each side has an exaggerated sense of its own advantages.

Lessons From Immigrant Rights Organizer: We Are Not Our Productivity "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When I started organizing as part of DREAM Act mobilization in 2010, I had high hopes: I thought the act would be my way out of poverty, fugitivity, and uncertainty. But I never thought: At the expense of whom? Back then, I lived in fear, which prevented me from slowing down and contextualizing systems of oppression like colonialism, anti-blackness, and patriarchy. My fears were about basic needs: living without heat in another Boston winter, fear of not being able to afford the $1.50 bus ticket, and so on. The fight for daily survival was all-consuming, and these fears made me want to trust the DREAM Acts promises of a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who entered the United States before age 16.

Asbestos found in 17 makeup products thanks to one womans persistent concerns about child safety "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Natural News Parents have a seemingly never-ending list of things to worry about, particularly when it comes to their childrens health. Even if youve done your best to ensure your kids eat healthy foods and you go out of your way to avoid toxic vaccines and medications, there are still ways that your children could inadvertently be exposed to toxins. One mothers concerns recently helped to expose yet another potential source of danger for children: Makeup.

Kristi Warner works at a law firm that focuses on mass tort asbestos litigation, which means she is all too familiar with asbestos exposure and the damage it can cause. After purchasing a glittery makeup kit for her six-year-old daughter from popular accessories retailer Claires, she began to have some doubts about it. She sent the makeup to an independent lab for peace of mind, and their finding shocked her: It contained the cancer-causing tremolite asbestos. The National Cancer Institute says that this substance can cause malignant mesothelioma.

Warner said the findings prompted her to test other makeup sold at Claires. All of the 17 makeup products she sent to the Scientific Analytical Institute from nine different states tested positive for asbestos.

Bitcoin slides 18 percent on crackdown fears; crypto rivals also plunge "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

JANUARY 16, 2018 / 4:50 AM

Reuters

LONDON (Reuters) Bitcoin tumbled 18 percent on Tuesday to a four-week trough close to $11,000, after reports that a ban on trading of cryptocurrencies in South Korea was still an option drove fears grew of a wider regulatory crackdown.

Bitcoins slide triggered a massive selloff across the broader cryptocurrency market, with biggest rival Ethereum down 23 percent on the day, according to trade website Coinmarketcap, and the next-biggest, Ripple, plunging 33 percent.

South Korean news website Yonhap reported that Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon had told a local radio station that the government would be coming up with a set of measures to clamp down on the irrational cryptocurrency investment craze.

South Korea had said on Monday that its plans to ban virtual coin exchanges had not yet been finalised, as government agencies were still in talks to decide how to regulate the market.

Bitcoin slid on the latest news, trading as low as $11,191.59 on the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp exchange, down 18 percent on the day, for a short period putting the digital currency on track for its biggest one-day fall in three years.

Its mainly been regulatory issues which are haunting the cryptocurrency, with news around South Koreas further crackdown on trading the driver today, said Think Markets chief strategist Naeem Aslam, who holds what he described as substantial amounts of bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple.

But we maintain our stance. We do not think that the complete banning of cryptocurrencies is possible, he said.

Cryptocurrencies enjoyed a bumper year in 2017 as mainstream investors entered the market and as an explosion in so-called initial coin offerings (ICOs) digital token-based fundraising rounds drove demand for bitcoin and Ethereum, the second-biggest digital unit.

The latest tumble leaves bitcoin down more than 40 percent from the record high around $20,000 it hit in mid-December, wiping about $130 billion off its market cap the unit price multiplied by the total number of bitcoins that have been released into the market.

The news from South Korea came as it emerged a senior Chinese central banker had said authorities should ban centralised trading of virtual currencies as well as individuals and businesses that provide related services, according to an internal memo from a government mee...

That address was followed by an hour-long exchange with the flock of journalists in attendance. Yet the ease with which the event unfolded belied the difficulty Moon had in addressing questions about what may be the most important challenge for his administration: North Korea's fast-progressing weapons programme. Just 10 days earlier, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's made an important New Year's speech. He reiterated his country's nuclear capabilities: "our Republic has, at last, come to possess a powerful and reliable war deterrent, which no force and nothing can reverse."

Ingestible Electronic Pill Senses Gases in the Gut "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It's a fart-measuring pill:

Scientists often hope to break ground with their research. But a group of Australian researchers would likely be happy with breaking wind.

The team developed an ingestible electronic capsule [open, DOI: 10.1038/s41928-017-0004-x] to monitor gas levels in the human gut. When it's paired with a pocket-sized receiver and a mobile phone app, the pill reports tail-wind conditions in real time as it passes from the stomach to the colon. The researchers, led by Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh of RMIT University and Peter Gibson of Monash University, reported their invention Monday in Nature Electronics.

Several people including two police officers were killed in an operation to capture a helicopter pilot who bombed Venezuelas Supreme Court during anti-government protests last year, the interior ministry said Monday.

A ministry statement said members of a terrorist cell were killed in a fierce gunbattle, and five were captured, but did not say whether the pilot, Oscar Perez, was among the dead or detained.

The Prime Minister and Member for Ialibu-Pangia,Peter ONeill  , has called for an end to individual interests undermining good governance in the Southern Highlands Province, and for all Leaders to work together for the people.


PM ONeill made the comments after attending the first Provincial Executive Council (PEC) meeting of Southern Highlands Province since the 2017 National Election, today in Mendi.

Following the swearing in of the Council, the Prime Minister commended the new Provincial Administrator and the Provincial Police Commander for advancing peace and stability.

After the election we saw displays of reckless self-interest by some individuals and this undermined stability in the Province, the Prime Minister said.

With the new Provincial Executive Council we will see positive change and development once again in Southern Highlands Province.

I call on all public servants to focus on the task of restoring service delivery, and to step-up efforts to deliver better education, health services and public infrastructure.

Individuals who continue to try and undermine good governance by acts of self-interest, with no regards for welfare of the province, will not be tolerated.

The people of this province are more important than individual interest, and we will ensure the welfare of the people is taken care of through the new Council.

The Prime Minister said there are better ways to solve differences than destroying public property in which so much has been invested to improve the livelihoods of the people.

7 French prison guards hurt when an Islamist convict attacked them "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP

AFP | Prison officers staged strikes around the country, demanding better security.

MONT-DE-MARSAN (FRANCE) (AFP)  Seven French prison officers were hurt when an Islamist convict attacked them as he resisted a search, while guards resumed a strike Tuesday demanding better security in jails nationwide.The latest assault, which took place in a prison in southwestern France on Monday, came just four days after a German Al-Qaeda convict attacked and hurt three prison guards in the north of the country.

Mondays attack at the Mont-de-Marsan prison occurred when nine officers attempted to restrain and search the convict, who lunged at them and punched them.

Three officers suffered fractures, while four others have multiple bruises, CGT union representative Ludovic Motheron told AFP.

The justice ministry, which put the number of wounded at five, said the inmate, known for being very violent, was under surveillance because he was radicalised in prison.

The assault came after Thursdays attack by German convict Christian Ganczarski, who is serving an 18-year sentence over the 2002 bombing of a Tunisian synagogue.

Armed with scissors and a razor blade, Ganczarski injured three guards after learning he might face extradition to the United States in connection with investigations into the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

That incident, at the Vendin-le-Vieil prison in northern France, prompted strikes by officers around the country Monday and Tuesday, demanding better security.

We dont have the training to handle radicalised detainees. So our colleagues are very upset, Guillaume Pottier of the UFAP-UNSA union said.

Officers resumed strike actions Tuesday despite the resignation of the Vendin-le-Vieil prison governor, and a pledge by President Emmanuel Macron to present an overhaul of the prison system by the end of February.

Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux called Tuesday for dialogue with the striking officers.

I understand the anger that is being expressed, he told French television channel CNews.

The issue, first of all, is to decrease the pressure on prisons, which is largely linked to the fact that you have too many detainees in some cells, he said.

British Carillion corporation collapse and Conservative government "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Monday, January 15, 2018 18:51

CARILLIONS collapse into administration spells failure for the neoliberal approach to renewing infrastructure and running public services, but working people are expected to pay the price once again.

The company began life as a merger of construction companies but has spread through the mechanism of private finance initiatives (PFI) into management of public services, including schools, hospitals, libraries and prisons, acting, with a number of similar conglomerates, as government contractors of choice, and engaging subcontractors for particular services.

This PFI model commended itself to Tories, Liberal Democrats and New Labour for two stated reasons.

It was supposed, first, to defer public expenditure and make savings by spreading financial risk involved in new projects to private partners, which were, allegedly, more efficient.

Second, private expenditure on public projects was reputed not to count against public expenditure totals.

Both justifications have proven to be codswallop. Financial savings made by cutting staff numbers and wage levels were absorbed by private partners while the Office for National Statistics scotched the public expenditure reduction pipe dream.

Mitt Romney is Not the Tonic for Trumpism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In 2012, former Political Animal blogger Steve Benen wrote a forty-one part series on the lies of Mitt Romney. Each week during the campaign, he chronicled all the things Romney had said that were untrue and provided a link to each item so the reader could verify that Romney was being dishonest. When he posted his last piece in the series, the list of whoppers had reached an astonishing but still only partial number of nine hundred and seventeen. I think its safe to say that the country had never before seen a politician who lied so easily and so routinely as Mitt Romney. He couldnt be relied on to tell you whether or not the sun was shining.

Amazingly, Trump is actually worse. By August of last year, the Washington Posts FactChecker listed over one thousand lies the president had told since taking office in late January. At the end of the year, Time magazine found 1,950 lies Trump told in 2017. The Toronto Star found 978 lies by Christmas, including twenty-seven examples of the president falsely calling America the worlds highest-taxed nation.

As bad as Trump is, its not certain that a President Romney wouldnt be worse. Either way, the two of them are the two most dishonest politicians in America, both demonstrating a pathological disregard for the truth. And I intend to keep bringing this up because I simply dont care that Romney is in the habit of blasting Trump from time to time. I dont care that Romney is moderate compared to Trump on some issues, including immigration. Romney is in no way the tonic for Trumpism.

So, when people talk up Romney as a senate candidate to replace retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, I intend to refer people to Benens project on his mendacity: Vol. I,...

The Era of No Compromise is Over "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When news broke last week that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might not even attempt to pass a budget this year, all hell broke loose among so-called fiscal conservatives. A typical comment came from Representative Barry Loudermilk on Georgia who said They need to change the [Senate] cloture rule, but until they do, the only way were going to be able to accomplish anything is through reconciliation. We have to use reconciliation.

The Senate has already changed the cloture rule in recent years. The majority no longer needs sixty votes to confirm the administrations nominees. But the so-called legislative filibuster still exists, at least for now. To get around it, the Republicans used an innovative and unprecedented dual budget reconciliation process last year, with one budget dedicated to overturning Obamacare and the other set aside for enacting tax reform. To accomplish this, though, the Republicans actually had to pass two budgets. Only with budgets in hand were they able to resort (twice) to the budget reconciliation process that enabled them to pass legislation with fifty votes. Without a budget for the next fiscal year, the Senate is forced back to regular order, meaning that theyll need nine Democratic votes to pass legislation.

So, when Rep.Loudermilk says that the Republicans have to use reconciliation if they want to get anything done, he means anything that doesnt require a great deal of compromise with Senate Democrats. I dont know if we can call it McConnells decision not to pass a budget as much as it is an acknowledgment of reality. With only fifty-one members in his caucus now, and with Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Thad Cochran (R-MS) suffering from significant health issues, its probably not possible for McConnell to pass a real budget, let alone one that the House will agree to. It doesnt seem that he can reproduce the same trick he used to do a budget for repealing Obamacare, because that was a one-time deal that fiscal conservatives agreed to on the premise that it wouldnt be repeated. They basically passed an empty shell of a budget which meant that fiscal hawks didnt have the chance to call for spending cuts. They were also using an unused budget bill from the previous fiscal year, which is something they dont have the luxury of doing again. So, with no budget there can be no budget reconciliation process, and without a budget reconciliation process, the era of operating without the need to compromise has come to an end. This, in most conservatives view, means that nothing can get done, but thats not true in principle.

What is true is that House Speaker Paul Ryan can forg...

Are You One Of The 170 Million Americans Drinking Radioactive Tap Water? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ZeroHedge| According to a new bombshell report from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), tap water for more than 170 million Americans contains radioactive elements that may increase the risk of cancer. The group examined 50,000 public water systems throughout the United States and found from 2010 to 2015, more than 22,000 water utilities reported radium in treated water.

Radiation in tap water poses serious health threats, particularly for children, and women during pregnancy.

The most common radioactive element the EWG found was radium. Studies show that radium above the EPA legal limit may cause depression of the immune system, anemia, cataracts, fractured teeth, and of course cancer.

Radium is a naturally occurring radioactive element that resides on the earths crust. The EWG emphasizes that higher radium levels in tap water occur when uranium mining or oil and gas drilling exploration companies disturb the earths geology. The process triggers radiation called ionizing because it can release electrons from atoms and molecules, and turn them into ions, explained the EWG. The EPA warns that all ionizing radiation is carcinogenic, implying that radium above the EPA limit is all too prevalent in America and it could be causing lots of cancer.

In 158 public water systems serving some 276,000 Americans in 27 states, the EWG found that radium exceeded the federal legal ceiling for radium-226 and radium-228.

The EWGs Tap Water Database covers six radioactive contaminants, including radium, radon, and uranium. The database shows radium-226 and radium-228 are the two most common forms of radiation in every state.

The EWG expresses frustration with the 41-year old federal drinking water standards that are not designed to protect human health. New public health goals were set in 2006 by the California Office of Environmental Hazard Assessment, but have been widely overlooked by the federal government.

Why you shouldnt forget about long tail SEO "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A few months ago, I wrote about how I built ThingsOnReddit. Its a site that finds the best Amazon products posted to Reddit and uses Amazon Affiliates to monetize it. I became HN famous for a few days or so, and then slowly disappeared into oblivion. That is when I realized that I would eventually run out of sites that got me that quick spike in hits, and would need to focus on building SEO for the website.

I initially ran into some roadblocks, but have slowly built a predictable and growing amount of traffic to the site. Along the way, I learned much more about how my site was being used, and focused on improving the site for that use case.

Rethinking the SEO Strategy

In the beginning, I tried to optimize for keywords that could potentially land users to my homepage. My thought process was this: the user lands on the homepage, finds an interesting subreddit and/or product, and then buys said product on Amazon. I even created a new homepage for users to land on that was a bit more friendly, and offered an easier way to navigate to subreddits.

It was a bad strategy.

The table that changed my paradigm is below:

Breakdown of which pages users are landing on for the last 30 days

Its hard to see, but the home page, which has the most page views upon landing, makes up only 11.27% of the total. Most users are landing either directly on a subreddit or a product page.

It became abundantly clear that my SEO approach should be based on the breadth of the pages on my website.

This graph shows how many pages Google has indexed over time

That is when I began to realize the power of long tail SEO. Long tail SEO means that you target niche Google keywords (usually 3+ or more words) that have low competition. This naturally happened to my sitethere are hundreds of thousands of product pages with all sorts of strange keywords resulting from the comments of Redditors about the product.

Sitemaps

Sitemaps tell a search engine about the structure of your website. Its not usually needed if your site is small and well-linked together, but my site was sprawling and huge.

I created a sitemap to include the maximum number of URLs, 50,000. ThingsOnReddit has a page for every subreddit and Amazon product mentioned on Reddit, s...

The Poet: Stephen Levine, "Half Life" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

"Half Life"

"We walk through half our life
as if it were a fever dream,
barely touching the ground,
our eyes half open,
our heart half closed.

Not half knowing who we are,
we watch the ghost of us drift
from room to room,
through friends and lovers
never quite as real as advertised.

Not saying half we mean
or meaning half we say,
we dream ourselves
from birth to birth
seeking some true self.

Until the fever breaks
and the heart can not abide
a moment longer
as the rest of us awakens,
summoned from the dream,
not half caring for anything but love."

~ Stephen Levine
