David Bromwich: Dont Resist, Oppose "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The national security state that Obama inherited and broadened, and has now passed on to Trump, is so thoroughly protected by secrecy that on most occasions concealment will be an available alternative to lying. Obamas awareness of this frightening legacy accounts for the unpredictable urgency with which he campaigned for Hillary Clinton an almost unseemly display of partisan energy by a sitting president. All along, he was expecting a chosen successor to dial back the security state Cheney and Bush had created and he himself normalised.

Sidney Blumenthal: The First Family "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Reckoning with Trump means descending into the place that made him. What he represents, above all, is the triumph of an underworld of predators, hustlers, mobsters, clubhouse politicians and tabloid sleaze that festered in a corner of New York City; a vindication of his mentor, the Mafia lawyer Roy Cohn, a figure unknown to most Trump supporters.

David Trotter: Orwells Nose and Prose "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Orwell may have become more important as a symbol than for anything he actually wrote. Both of these books seek to reverse that suspicion, one by tethering the symbol to some distinctly fallible human flesh, the other by subjecting Orwells political prose to the kind of scrutiny ordinarily reserved for the novels of Henry James.

Small Backpack Pattern, for Small Budgets: Part 1 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

small backpack pattern

If you have been watching the size and style of bags lately, youve probably noticed all those impossibly cute little backpacks everyone is carrying.  Along those lines, Ive made this small backpack pattern to be small (and cute) but still big enough to be practical.

You can also use this small backpack as a cross-over or cross body bag as well.  I made that way because I like to have options and truth-be-told, I am a bit paranoid with a backpack.  I guess having grown up in Panama where, as the saying goes, pickpockets can remove your socks without even taking off your shoes I have had my share of missing money and wallets.  This is why Ive added a pocket in the back with a zipper.  Theres an internal pocket, also with a zipper, and even the outside pocket has a zipper.  So if you can remember where you put your wallet, the chances of keeping it are high..

small backpack patternTheres also a possibility of adding one more pocket to stash your mobile phone, but I will leave that up to you. I will show you how to add it you want it.  Please note, however, it will not be included in the pattern, so this is probably for the intermediate to advanced sewists.  The rest of the project is suitable for beginners.



Weekend Words: Judge "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

German Miniaturist, King Solomon as Judge (12th century), manuscript (Codex 601), sterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Vienna (image via Web Gallery of Art)

On Thursday, the Ninth Circuit federal appeals panel Judge Michelle T. Friedland; Judge William C. Canby Jr.; and Judge Richard R. Clifton unanimously rejected Donald Trumps travel ban, delivering what The New York Times called the latest and most stinging judicial rebuke to his effort to make good on a campaign promise and tighten the standards for entry into the United States.

The poet judges not as a judge judges but as the sun falling around a helpless thing.

Walt Whitman

A country can be judged by the quality of its proverbs.

German Proverb

A judge is a law student who marks his own examination papers.

H. L. Mencken

That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.

Dorothy Parker, But the One on the Right (1929)

Never judge a book by its movie.

J. W. Eagan

Nobody outside of a baby carriage or a judges chamber believes in an unprejudiced point of view.

Lillian Hellman

I cannot think well of a man who sports with any womans feelings; and there may often be a great deal more suffered than a stander-by can judge of.

Jane Austen

We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.



A trip to Denmark. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

If we hang out in the same social media circles you may be aware of this already. If we dont then you may not be! In either case, heres the full skinny on a recent trip to Denmark that I think you will find interesting and exciting!

A couple of weeks back, myself and 6 other UK sewists, were invited by Danish brand Stoff & Stil (meaning Fabric & Style) to visit their Denmark store and HQ.  This is a brand that has has a pedigree of over 30 years and will be familiar to sewists in Denmark, Germany, Sweden, and Norway.  But less so to those of us in the UK, where they only launched their UK site back in May of last year.  They currently have 5 webshops and 23 bricks and mortar shops in the aforementioned countries.  They only ship to countries for which they have a dedicated webshop. So currently Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany and the UK but they aim to expand to other European locations in the longer term. This trip was part of their strategy to reach out to the UK market. Their newest venture; and thats where we come in. We go there, we listen, we come back, we tell you all about it. (Clearly it would be ridiculously impractical, but I honestly think if they couldve invited the entire uk sewing community out there they wouldve done!)   As hosts they were faultless, warm, welcoming, as passionate about making as we are, and thoughtful . Like, they think of EVERYTHING kind of thoughtful. And for me, this was my lasting impression of Stoff & Stil as a brand. They think of everything.

First stop was their retail space.and this is what we saw.STOFF AND STIL UK BLOGGER TRIP (21)

Essentially, a department store for makers!  I have never seen anything on this scale in the UK! Seriously. it was huge...

Readers Diary: It Was a Colorful Year "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Almost all books of recent art history seem to start by analyzing a snapshot. Its a way of slipping into an analytical mode through a side door, under cover of an image a specimen of what they call visual culture that can be allegorized. Darby English, in his new book 1971, starts out not with one photo but two, informal snaps of the installation of a show of color field painting in a converted movie theater in what people sometimes call the black part of town in Houston. Theres Clem Greenberg sporting a cowboy hat but in the next picture, the same hat is worn by Peter Bradley, one of the artists in the show and its curator. The local headgears circulation, English says, captures the animating spirit of the exhibition project: a casual statement of affinity between the races. True enough, but also, Id add, of affinity between critic and artist normally said to wear different hats. Its a black hat, but unlike the movies, those who wear it are not the bad guys. That English paints Greenberg as a good guy is just one of the reasons why his revisionist look at two 1971 exhibitions Contemporary Black Artists in America at New Yorks Whitney Museum, and The DeLuxe Show in Houston, curated by Bradley and sponsored by the Menils will raise hackles. English decries black nationalist demands for a unified community in favor of an individualism, personal autonomy, and subjectivity that many then and now would deride as a bourgeois affectation if not a betrayal. And he rejects the concomitant call for an art that emphasizes recognizable images of that community (an idea still championed by, for instance, Kerry James Marshall) in favor of an art of abstraction. In so doing, he aims to revive interest in the Houston show, long lost from art-historical view, and to rehabilitate the reputation of the Whitney show, which was boycotted by many of the invited artists and has gone down in history as a debacle. (Another recent book, Susan E. Cahans Mounting Frustration: The Art Museum in the Age of Black Power, published last year by Duke University Press, is heavily slanted against it.) Just as bad, maybe, is his giving the time of day to something as unfashionable as color field painting. Today, its easy to see that artists like Ed Clark and Sam Gilliam (to name just two of the participants in The DeLux...

Monumental sculpture Lucie by David Mesguich in Poznan "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

French artist David Mesguich has been pushing the boundaries between street art and fine art by creating monumental geometric sculptures that he puts within urban settings. For his most recent project, the artist created a ten meters high sculpture called Lucie representing a little girl drawing a sun in the sky that has been installed in Poznan, Poland.

Check more details and pictures of the work in progress after the jump.

David Mesguich explains: Early in 2016, I have been contacted by gallery 208 to create a monumental sculpture in Poznan public space, Poland. The imposed planning was really tight, only 5 months to draw and realize a 10 meters high and 5 tons sculpture. To imagine this sculpture I thought of my daughter, and through her to the children who would grow up here and cross the monument every day, I wanted to make a positive work that a 4 years old child would understand and who in substance will tell him: look, you can draw your own world.
This sculpture portrait of my 4 years old daughter Lucie is my way to show her what she represents to me and also something I hope that will bring some sun to Poznan kids.

Is the Schumann Resonance Rising to Reflect Higher Consciousness? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Christina Sarich; The Mind Unleashed

The Schumann resonances are oscillating magnetic frequencies that happen in the Earths electromagnetic spectrum. They are said to be generated by electromagnetic changes that happen within the earths core, that then affect the earths surface, and ionosphere, including the sentient beings living upon it. This resonance has been about the same for hundreds, if not thousands of years, but it seems to be changing. Why?

It has been assumed that the Earth, along with all living things on earth, is surrounded and protected with this natural frequency of pulsation of 7.83 HZ, or the Schumann resonance. The ancient Indian Rishis called this sound, OM. Whether by coincidence or not, it also happens to be a very powerful frequency to use with brainwave entrainment allowing human beings to access their full brains, and heightened consciousness.

Though the Schumann resonance can vary dependent upon the geographic location, it has been hovering around 7.8 cycles per second for years. This resonance is thought to be the heartbeat of the earth, an oscillating frequency which we ourselves attune to in order to stay in balance energetically.

Julia Fishs Sense of Passage "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Julia Fish, First plan for floor ( floret ) section three and six (1998), gouache on assembled, laser-printed paper, diptych, 23 1/4 x 16 1/2 inches; 23 3/4 x 17 3/4 inches (all images Julia Fish and courtesy David Nolan Gallery)

I dont think it is quite right to say that Julia Fish is the Emily Dickinson of abstraction, but I dont think it is completely wrong either. For many years now, Fish has been making work based on the incidental details of her house, garden, and studio; while her paintings and drawings may treat a commonplace feature a square or hexagonal tile its repetition in her compositions becomes expansive.

As we know, the reclusive Dickinson did not leave her house for the last twenty years of her life, but she was a keen observer and, in her poems, she was able to seamlessly meld abstract concepts with concrete images, envisioning the extraordinary out of the ordinary in familiar terms:

Ill tell you how the Sun rose
A ribbon at a time

In an artists statement from August, 1999, Fish wrote the following:

In 1997 my attention turned to the patterned tiles in the entryway of my home, a floor like so many others, surprisingly common in houses and storefronts built during the early part of this century. And though joined to that history, these small, hand-set tiles delineated and measured a space that had grown particular for me  a place inside, yet not a room an ordered surface that registered, always, the first step returning and last step away.

This statement suggests that the patterned tile signifies transition, the passageway between entering and exiting. We are not likely to stop and ponder the things we daily pass by and over, but Fish clearly does.

The Woman Whose Eyes Have A Whole New Type of Colour Receptor She Can See What We Cant "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Collective Evolution

Do you see green the same way that I see green? Every now and then, we find ourselves wondering such questions, as we have all come to know and agree on the use of generic colour names like blue, yellow, green, and so on to distinguish and analyze life around us. Surely, we are all unique in the way we view colours to a degree, but at the end of the day, green is green, and so we leave it at that. But not everyone is quite like this.

After searching for more than 25 years, neuroscientists in the UK have come across a woman who has an extra type of cone cell the receptor cells that detect colour in her eyes. This means she can see a whopping 99 million more colours than the rest of us, and belongs to a very small group of people with super-vision called tetrachromats.

The majority of humans, referred to as trichromats, have three types of cone cells in their eyes, with each one thought to be able to distinguish around 100 shades. Together, our three cone cells can distinguish roughly 1 million different colours. Those who are colour blind, however, only have two functioning types of cone cells.

Study Reveals Connection Between Air Pollution And Diabetes Risk In Latino Children "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Whitney Webb; True Activist

A recent study from the University of Southern California showed a correlation between air pollution levels and high measures of insulin in young Latinos.

A recent study at the University of South California has discovered a correlation between air pollution and measures of high insulin in Latino children. The study, based in Los Angeles, measured insulin sensitivity in parallel with exposure to particulate matter for 314 Latino or Hispanic children ages 8-15 who had been classified as obese or overweight. The study was initiated in USCs Department of Preventative Medicine under the Division of Environmental Health and published in Diabetes journal. Participants were followed over an average of 3.4 years, and it was revealed that when the children turned 18 years old, they had about 36 percent more insulin than normal levels, signifying that their bodies had become less responsive to insulin. Increasing rates of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes among obese youth has become a major public health problem in the United States in recent decades.

According to the study, exposure to tobacco smoke and near-roadway air pollution have synergistic effects on the development of childhood obesity. Exposure to elevated concentrations of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) primarily contributed to the rise in insulin levels. This is especially prevalent among minority populations: minority communities may have some of the largest environmental toxin burden and suffer from the greatest health disparities in obesity and type 2 diabetes. Many environmental factors contribute to the development of chronic illnesses; however, air pollutants are particularly insidious as they are harder to avoid or control.

Chaos Theory: Whats Going On Inside Fukushima? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Richard Wilcox PhD; Activist Post

It has become a sarcastic proverb that a thing must be true if you saw it in a newspaper. That is the opinion intelligent people have of that lying vehicle in a nutshell. But the trouble is that the stupid people who constitute the grand overwhelming majority of this and all other nations do believe and are moulded and convinced by what they get out of a newspaper, and there is where the harm lies. Mark Twain

Part of the problem with the mainstream press is that they have been ignoring the Fukushima issue so they dont know what has been going on there for months or years. Nancy Foust, Simply Info

German Police Raided Three Suspects for Showing Interest in Darknet Firearm Sales "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Despite ample evidence pointing towards German law enforcements enhanced ability to catch darknet firearm buyers, people keep trying to buy guns online. Some countries may not report a connection between illegal guns and the darknet. And other countriesaccording to a Russian forum where guns are a commonplacehave more pressing matters than hunting down gun buyers. Whatever the case may be, German police report a record number of darknet-related arrests. And, in early January, they added three more customers to the ever-growing list of darknet busts.

The Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA), in December, began investigating a 46-year-old man from Frickenhausen for showing interest for several shotguns on the darknet. Through both intensive and covert investigations on the Internet, the Federal Criminal Police Office identified two additional suspects. The secondary suspectsa 43-year-old from Reutlingen and a 51-year-old from Stuttgartknew the primary suspect from Frickenhausen. All three, according to the police, showed an interest in firearms on the darknet and appeared as if they intended to make a purchase.



Chain saw injuries in Myanmar tied to illegal logging "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

MANDALAY, Myanmar - As darkness fell in the forests of central Myanmar on a rainy evening last July, May Thu and her husband Myint Swe*, were wrapping up their days work: illegal logging. May Thu, a petite 27-year-old with long black hair and shining black eyes, clambered on top of some logs assembled in a pile. It was monsoon season and the wood was slippery. She fell and landed on the buzzing blade of her husbands chain saw. At first, there was no pain, but she knew she was in trouble. OK, I just got injured by a chain saw, this will be big, she recalls thinking. Myint Swe, a gentle man with foxlike features and a nervous disposition, scooped her up. Its just a small one, he lied as he carried her back to their village. They had been happily married for 10 years. But when she asked him to stop so she could look at the wound, she saw a deep incision across the backs of her legs, backside and vagina. There was a tremendous amount of blood. May Thu and Myint Swe live in a tiny village north of Mandalay, the countrys second largest city; a two-hour drive along bumpy roads plied by minivans and trucks, some carrying cut logs on their roofs. Their logging work is illegal. The country has the third highest deforestation rate in the world, close behind Brazil and Indonesia, the worst offenders according to the UN Food and Agricultural Organizations 2015 Global

Super Villain Mortgage approval at all time low "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

thank God they don't have to deal with HIP's anymoreIt was reported today that Super Villains across the UK are finding it harder and harder to get mortgages for their lairs, with increasingly cautious lenders stating it is the fact that most lairs do not survive the first year that is behind application approval levels dropping below 50% for the first time since the end of the Cold War.

In previous years it was easy for any villain to get a good lair, for example a volcano or a remote island, with a market value up to 3.5 times their expected annual income from holding the world to ransom with the threat of total annihilation, stated a spokesman for the Super Villains Protection League. But at the close of 2010 many super villains reported they are having to build their world domination plans from much smaller lairs and that was before the re-sale value of first time buyer starter torture dungeons were decimated by that blasted crime rate database.

A recent survey of villains has backed up this claim with many having to take flats or continuing to rent. Ernst Blofeld, a long-standing Super Villain with an impeccable credit rating, admitted he had resorted to a long-term lease on a 1960s maisonette in Basildon.

It isnt the same as my old huge volcanic base, or those cool submarine eating boats, but at least it is home and I have a good internet connection, he said while stroking his beloved white Persian cat. I just hope the landlord isnt too strict on the no pets clause.

The Super Villain Protection League said that cases such as Blofelds were just the tip of the iceberg. Some villains are already having to make minions redundant as they look to cut costs, and with fuel costs going up launching satellites is not possible for many now. We will start seeing a fall in the number of Super Villains as they will not be able afford the costs of taking over the world, the spokesman said, Im already hearing stories about our members converting their shark and piranha infested pools into Garra Rufa fish pedicure spas and, really, thats no way to make an honest living.

RT 2-11-17 Western media losing viewers as audiences seek alternative news sources' "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

rt_cube_logo_150_45I felt one of the more fascinatingly right on points from this was where he said, people are turning to their own journalism, they are becoming journalist themselves, and citizen journalism is actually going out and finding the truth. And so it seems to be.

The current trend is that the corporate media is losing viewers, it is losing readership, says Mike Raddie, co-editor of BSNews. People are turning to other forms of journalism, and in some cases even becoming journalists themselves, he added.

WikiLeaks is accusing the BBC of spreading fake news after a senior journalist suggested the whistle-blowing sites revelations lend support to particular candidates in the run-up to Frances presidential election.

Michael Raddie: If you look at all the wars in the recent past, since the 1980s upwards, the BBC is either under-reporting war where weve been the British Army and the British special operations groups have been covertly in battle; when there is an overt war, the BBC is always drawing out support for it in the run-up to the war, as we saw it with Iraq, with Libya. And then they never tell us the true facts of exactly why we went into the certain country, why we toppled the regime, why we toppled the government, etc. They are at loggerheads for a very good reason.

the readers are already finding other sources of information. They are going over to alternative media. They understand the likes of the BBC, the likes of the ITN Channel 4 news. Theyve been caught out so many times now. And especially when it comes to foreign policy, but also with domestic policy and especially with reli...

Experts Predict Planet Will Run Out of Usable Band Names by 2019 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

ATHENS, Iowa The punk and hardcore music communities are facing an international crisis, as scene experts predict the planet will run out of decent, usable band names by 2019, according to a new report in the peer-reviewed zine Razorcake.

You just dont think itll happen in your lifetime, said overly dedicated punk Jacob Stevens. Decades of taking every menacing sounding word and phrase have finally caught up to us.

Self-described punk historian Stephanie Branford, who co-authored the devastating report, pointed out that theres been a drought for years.

Some the biggest band names in modern hardcore were sourced out-of-genre, from metal acts like Iron Maiden, or Metallica, said Branford. There are only so many song names as sick as Trapped Under Ice, and there are even fewer decent Metallica songs left at all. Sick-ass band names will soon be a thing of the past. We must prepare for a future of unironic St. Anger references, where our children name their bands after Linkin Park songs.

The punk community generally agrees that the rapid depletion of usable names is linked to a sharp, unchecked increase in band creation, blowing through more resources and stretching scant talent across multiple bands.

People werent satisfied being in one great band with a decent name. They chose to be in three shitty bands with dope, non-renewable names, and look where we are, said Branford. Theres no turning back.


The report offers some troubling statistics, including that there are 36 percent fewer names than previously thought that look good in varsity font. Without dedicated action, the report warns, straight edge bands in particular are likely to see an even more severe decline in popularity than predicted, despite their dedicated fanbase.

This doesnt just impact hardcore. This is a cross-genre issue we need to deal with, said inter-genre relations expert Vanessa Martinez. You think indie bands will always have words to just remove vowels from? Why do you think theyve been doing that in the first place?!......


Where Are They Now? The Dudes I Came Here With "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Everyone remembers earlier this evening.  It was warmer, people were wearing sunglasses, and the doors had just opened at this Mind Rot show.  But now the night is ending, and I cant find anybody, so it seems like a great time to take a look back at the dudes I came here with and ask: Where are they now?


Cole was that tall guy wearing a parka and cargo shorts. Though many at the show thought hed be forever known as, the guy that was dressed all weird, he was able to overhaul his image into that of an ally to woman after helping to find a lost contact lens in the pit. He was last seen before the headlining band took the stage when he started ironically moshing to the music being played between acts. His foray into comedic work was met with mixed results.


After sticking with me and the rest of the guys at first, Mikey ran into some old high school friends and immediately began collaborating with them revisiting several old stories and inside jokes. They said it was good to get the guys back together, but some members of the original party wish Mike would have stuck around. He has been spotted drinking with his friends at the bar, but not for a little while now. I bet he left with those other dudes.


Of all the dudes I came here with, Dwight is the one that drove me here the most. He was also the one that suggested we check out Mind Rot in the first place. And he said he could score some pot at the show so I gave him $50. No one has seen him in hours and most sources interviewed agree that when it comes to me getting a ride home tonight I seem to be pretty fucked.


Its so bizarre that Cole is friends with Jonathon Taylor Thomas. Hes a pretty sick dude actually.  After causing a huge scene upon his arrival he mostly just chilled out in the balcony, eventually leaving to go film a guest starring role on former TV dad Tim Allens sitcom Last Man Standing. Its been a weird night.

Have you seen any of these dudes recently? Can you give me a ride home from the show tonight? Let me know in the comments below!

And those who may make fun of those who are going through such a process, likely have their own set of stuff that they are not yet facing in the Light.



Cashew: A Disease-Destroying, Bacteria-Blasting Super Nut "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The bacteria responsible for acne, tooth decay, tuberculosis, pneumonia and leprosy have met their match with, of all things, the cashew nut. Containing anacardic chemicals that destroy gram-positive bacteria, this tasty seed of the cashew apple helps eradicate dangerous pathogens that cause a multitude of issues. Not only that, but cashews have also been shown to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes, weight gain and certain types of cancer.

Native to Brazil and grown worldwide in countries such as India, Mozambique, Tanzania and Nigeria, cashews are an outstanding source of copper, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese and zinc. However, sound harvesting and processing practices are crucial to avoid contamination with the caustic resin located within the cashew shell -- otherwise, the nut is unfit for consumption. This is the reason why cashew nuts are always sold pre-shelled.

Improve heart health, reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer

Rich in monounsaturated fats, cashews help decrease blood triglycerides, which in turn can lead to a heart-healthy future. Research published in Current Atherosclerosis Reports observed that clinical and epidemiological studies consistently found that the fats in tree nuts reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, thereby lowering the risk of coronary heart disease by an impressive 30-45 percent.

Moreover, tree nut consumption (cashews included) has been linked with a reduction in the incidence of diabetes mellitus, which is also a risk factor for developing pancreatic cancer. Following 75,680 women in the Nurses' Health Study, researchers discovered that those who consumed a one-ounce serving of nuts twice per week "experienced a significantly lower risk of pancreatic cancer when compared with those who largely abstained from nuts," according to the British Journal of Cancer. Participants with a previous history of cancer were excluded from the study.

Bitcoin news roundup, February 12, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This weeks summary of various cryptocurrency news and developments:

New developments:

Chinas central bank threatened to shut down bitcoin exchanges

The Peoples Bank of China (PBOC), Chinas central bank, released a statement in its website, where it laid out a warning issued to several bitcoin exchanges in a meeting. Notably, the Peoples Bank of China told exchanges not to take part in money laundering or margin lending, as they may face a dire fate. The bank stated: If the exchanges violated the above requirements, and if the circumstances were serious, the inspection team may ask the relevant departments to close down the exchanges according to law. In the meeting, the bank also addressed a few lesser-known cryptocurrency exchanges.

Several Chinese exchanges imposed bitcoin withdrawal delays.

This week, two major Chinese bitcoin exchanges Beijing-based OKCoin and Huobi announced they were freezing bitcoin and litecoin withdrawals for a month, following pressure from the Peoples Bank of China. Yuan transactions will not be affected, according to the exchanges.

Later on, other Chinese exchanges, including HaoBTC, Yunbi, BTCTrade, and BTC100 announced they would also de delaying bitcoin and litecoin withdrawals, without freezing them. The move came a few days after these exchanges were asked to meet with the Peoples Bank of China. All exchanges involved claimed the decision was an Anti-Money Laundering (AML) move. HaoBTC also claimed it will now charge a 5% fee on all deposits.

World Affairs:

Bitcoin to become legal tender in Japan

Last week, DeepDotWeb reported the number of bitcoin-accepting merchants in Japan was expected to quintuple this year. According to Sputnik News, bitcoin may now become legal tender in japan, under strict regulations. Companies who are to legally accept bitcoin will not only need to have at least the equivalent of $100,000 in reserve, but to undergo routine audits by the Japanese National Tax Agency, and to regularly report their activities to the government.

Even though businesses will have to pay around $300,000 to start using bitcoins, there is no guarantee they will get a license. These numbers are so big, some already speculate this will be just like New Yorks BitLicense law, that forced dozens of startups to stop operating.

Could a Tweet From an Unstable US President Send Australia to War With China? "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

Copyright Des Pensible 2017

This week in the Australian parliament Senator Ludlum of the Greens raised the question of whether a tweet from president Trump could send us into war with our biggest trading partner China.  While the question seems at first absurd and possibly even a satire, its not. Its a very serious question that deserves debate within Australia as it could have very severe consequences to not only our Australian economy but every Australians future.

The USA is in a very politically unstable position at the moment with many US citizens unhappy with some of the new presidents seemingly impulsive executive orders.  One such order is the banning Muslims from seven countries from entering the USA without asking advice from his government departments as to what sort of problems this might cause to US citizens traveling abroad or anyone travelling to the USA for  business or even a holiday.

This presidential order and tweets caused chaos at international airports and led to thousands of protesters at airports all over the USA. Even some of the international governments friendly to the USA criticised this action and some of the Muslim majority governments whose citizens were banned have reciprocated by banning US citizens. Fortunately for all the travelers affected, a US Federal Judge blocked the Presidents order until it could be examined in a court of law.

Cannabis May Soon be Used in Stroke and Cardiac Emergencies "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 active cannabinoids in cannabis. It accounts for 40 percent of the plant's extract and widely considered to be one of it's most powerful constituents that heals cells.

Emergency teams in cardiac and stroke units may one day use CBD's neuroprotective effects to prevent the onset of debilitating symptoms developing from stroke and cardiac arrest.

The reason cannabis is so effective medicinally is directly related to its ability to interact with receptors in the body which inhibit inflammation and prevent disease.

Cannabis does this so well, that few drugs can compete with its level of potency which come essentially with no side effects.

The Healing Platform: Build Your Own Cure "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

Cancer is a disease that most people either have personal experience with, or know someone who does.

In this interview, Annie Brandt herself a 16-year cancer survivor and author of "The Healing Platform: Build Your Own Cure!" shares some of the support detailed in her book, which can give anyone challenged with cancer access to valuable resources.

We first met last year at Dr. Lee Cowden's ACIM Conquering Cancer conference in Orlando. Brandt is also the coordinator of the Answers for Cancer Summit, an international cancer conference that will include many great speakers.

It's scheduled for April 27 through April 29, 2017, in San Diego, California. You can purchase tickets on

From my perspective, a foundational strategy for anyone concerned about cancer is to address your diet. That's my passion, and it got reignited once I understood that cancer is not a genetic, but a metabolic disease, primarily rooted in mitochondrial dysfunction.

In fact, this is the topic of my latest book, "Fat for Fuel," which will be published in May. More information on this will be coming soon.

I think that's the first step. However, for most people, diet alone will not solve the cancer riddle. It will likely prevent it, but may not solve it if you already have cancer. That's where Brandt's resources and The Healing Platform come in. They really are a great collaborative addition to a healthy diet, which I outline in "Fat for Fuel."

Best Answer for Cancer Foundation

Brandt is more than a little familiar with cancer. She was diagnosed with end-stage metastatic cancer in 2001, and was given three months to live. She decided that if that's all she had left, she would die as healthy as possible, "and as close to how God made me as I could," she says.

She refused surgery, high-dose chemo and radiation. Instead, she tried to make her body as strong and healthy as possible, focusing first on detoxification.

"The way the [Best Answer for Cancer] foundation started was I kind of made a promise to myself that if, in fact, I lived doing all these natural healthy things, I would find a way to help people realize there were all of these options. That's why I started the foundation," Brandt says.

"[The foundation is also] trying to protect the rights of patients and doctors to use natural substances."

Best Answer for Cancer Foundation was inaugurated in 2004, and became a 501(c)(3) organization in 2006...

How to Cook Spaghetti Squash "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola


With many people embracing the gluten-free trend and no-grain lifestyle, vegetarian pastas are becoming all the rage nowadays. This is great because highly processed grain products, like conventional, ready-to-cook pasta and wheat noodles, can drive up your insulin levels, since they convert to sugar in your body.


Youve probably heard of zucchini as a wonderful pasta alternative because of its al dente, noodle-like texture, but did you know that you can use another type of vegetable to satisfy your pasta craving? Get to know more about spaghetti squash, its many health benefits and how to cook it properly. 


The Origins of Spaghetti Squash


A popular variety of winter squash, spaghetti squash (Cucurbita pepo) is a long, oblong-shaped yellow vegetable that can measure anywhere between 8 to 14 inches long. It is named as such simply because when cooked, the flesh (which is pale yellow) separates into thin, spaghetti-like strands. Its also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow and even squaghetti.[1]


Unlike other squash varieties, which were originally cultivated in the Americas, spaghetti squashs origins can be traced to Asia, specifically China. It eventually made its way to the United States in 1936, and during World War II, Americans planted spaghetti squash in their victory gardens. However, this vegetable only became highly popular in the late 20th century....

Certainly the peer-reviewed evidence has stated unequivocally, from Government Health departments around the world, reinforced by a constant barrage of one-sided Mainstream Media propaganda, that vaccines play an essential role in protecting the overall health of newborns: mitigating any preliminary exposure to viral, bacterial & fungal pathogens, circulating in the environment.
Why is just such an examination here-in needed at this juncture? Because there is a growing gulf between the weight of biased information and specious...

Navajo Generating Plants Fate to be Decided Monday "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Navajo Times | Krista Allen
The Navajo Generating Station near Page, Arizona, could shut down this year, taking more than 1,000 jobs with it.

Published February 12, 2017

PAGE, ARIZONA  The owners of the Navajo Generating Station will vote Monday on whether to shut the coal-fired plant down this year or to keep it running through 2019.

The owners are meeting to discuss or consider the future of the plant, said Scott Harelson, spokesman for Salt River Project, the plants operator. Its expected that they will vote to determine whether they will seek to extend the lease and the operations of the plant.

The owners Arizona Public Service Co., Bureau of Reclamation, NV Energy, SRP, and Tucson Electric Power will have a 1 p.m. conference call on Monday to vote on the plants future.

SRP employees and contractors received notification from corporate communications stating that Mike Hummel, deputy general manager for the utility companys resources and finance, provided an update last month about the challenges facing NGS.

The economics of the energy industry are rapidly changing, the notification reads. And record low prices for natural gas mean it has become a viable long-term alternative to coal power in some instances.

SRP employees will be updated as soon as possible with any decision reached on Monday, it continues.

President Trump Thinks Its Cute to Call Sen. Warren Pocahontas American Indians Dont Think It is Funny "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


President Donald J. Trump

Published February 11, 2017

WASHINGTON Picking up where he left off on the campaign trial, President Trump on Thursday referred to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) as Pocahontas during a meeting that had absolutely nothing to do with the president injecting Warren into the conversation.

To the dismay of American Indians, Trump once again used Pocahontas name as an insult towards Sen. Warren.

On Thursday, Trump referenced Warren being silenced by the Republican-led U.S. Senate while she attempted to read a 1986 letter written by Coretta Scott King, the late widow of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. According to Politico, Trump referred to Warren several times as Pocahontas, the moniker he gave her during his campaign, and told the Democrats he was glad Warren is becoming the face of your party.

Trump feels Warren is vulnerable because she used American Indian heritage on some application forms when seeking employment in academia years ago. It was brought up during her 2012 senate campaign.

Senator Elizabeth Warren

Last summer when candidate called Warren Pocahontas one critic of Trump was Irene Bedard, whose voice was heard by millions when she gave voice to Pocahontas character in Disneys 1995 blockbuster animated film, Pocahontas. Bedard is an award-winning actress, who is also known for her roles in Into the West, Tree of Life and Smoke Signals.

To Bedard, the fact Trump uses Warrens claiming of American Indian heritage as a classic misdi...


Food is Actually INFORMATION Here's Why "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Despite being the condition for the possibility of all life itself, food is rarely appreciated for its true power.

by Sayer Ji

Far beyond its conventionally defined role as a source of energy and as building blocks for the body-machine, fascinating new discoveries on the frontiers of science reveal that food is also a powerful source of information.

We are all hardwired to be deeply concerned with food when hungry, an interest which rapidly extinguishes the moment we are satiated.

Baloney about electricity prices "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

You really did have to laugh at how the entirely left panel on Insiders (how is possible that Andrew Probyn is now on the ABC aka taxpayer payroll is this some kind of joke?) stumbled their way through the explanation of the load shedding that occurred in South Australia last week.  (According to shadow minister, Mark Butler, just a hiccup.)

If you read the Guardian, Fairfax or listened to the ABC in the past few days, all their commentators were praying for load shedding to occur in Sydney so they could all go See, nothing to do with renewables. Sadly, for them, load shedding was avoided so that argument is dead for the moment.

You did have to laugh when LaTingle immediately lept to the point that it had nothing to do with renewables but then had to backtrack well, it is complicated (a point made by fellow green traveller, Lenore Taylor, who laughably thinks she is quite the expert on this stuff.)

And what about the suggestion that it was all AEMOs fault because it didnt switch on the gas power plant at Pelican Point?  Excuse me, AEMO doesnt run electricity generation and PP didnt bid in because it couldnt supply (an entirely sensible rule).  And it is not just a matter of switching it on it takes several hours and there needs to be feeder stock as well.

But the answer of the panel was clear: the supply was not forthcoming because they could make heaps of money by not supplying but pushing up the price.  You know it makes sense PP didnt bid because it couldnt supply, but the price was bid up and the plant made money by not supplying.  That must be the entire explanation.

And heres a point that the greenies fed Barrie: there have been more peaks in wholesale electricity prices in Queensland than SA this year therefore nothing to do with renewables.  Of course, this is just spin.

The peaks generally last a very short time and the key is average electricity prices.  Here are the figures for 2017:

South Australia         $105.05/MWh

Queensland                 $93.56/MWh

NSW                              $73.48/MWh

Victoria                         $47.14/MWh

Now if you think last week was bad, just wait until next summer when Hazelwood is shut down taking 20 per cent of baseload from Vict...


Jim Carrey Explains How To Be Bigger Than Yourself "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


How many of you know Jim Carrey, either from his stand-up comedy or from his many successful films, including Dumb and Dumber, Mask, Liar Liar, The Truman Show, or A Series of Unfortunate Events? You might think that anyone as talented as Jim must had a great home background and went to a great school with plenty of money to afford the best of training. Think again.

In his early years at school he describes himself as quiet and having no friends. Yet, he discovered that he could make friends by making people laugh. That was his turning point. But the results werent all positive. One teacher wrote on his report card: Jim finishes his work first and then disrupts the class. At home, he thoroughly enjoyed making faces and mimicking in his mirror.

His ambition showed when he began to think beyond entertaining his fellow students. At age ten he sent his resume to actress/comedienne Carol Burnette, hoping to be discovered.

It wasnt all downhill for Jim. First, he had to work around his learning disability, dyslexia, in order to succeed in school. He did this by developing a phenomenal memory.

Although his dad tended to encourage his craziness, his mom was alarmed and often sent him to his room. No problem just more time to practice in front of the mirror.

Money was another hurdle. His family lived in a rough district with lots of low-rent townhouses. By the tenth grade he was trying to juggle eight-hour night shifts at the factory with school during the day. He was so exhausted that he couldnt understand what his teachers were talking about. He didnt have any friends at school and feared that anyone getting close might find discover his embarrassing poverty. With little learning and no relationships, he felt that school was getting him nowhere. He called it quits at 16.


Los Alamos Study Finds Airport Scanners Alter DNA "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Can we ever believe what our government tells us about airport security devices? 

Apparently not. First they told us those X-ray scanners (that showed way too many naked body parts) were perfectly safe.

Even the manufacturer of the device, Rapidscan, openly admitted the scanners had not been adequately tested. The truth was later revealed that the safety tests turned out to be totally rigged, as reported by Natural News.

With fabricated results, the technology was quickly rushed into every airport worldwide.  No one listened to what the scientists in the field of radiation were trying to tell them its not safe.

Firearms Inspections By Police in your Home. Your Rights. Their Authority. "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

I don't know about you, but my experience with police officers coming into my house for the purpose of inspecting my firearms & their safe keeping has been a mixed bag. First & foremost the police know very little to nothing at all about any firearms other than service issue. This can be a big problem & it has cost me money & time trying to prove the police wrong & me right!
 Secondly the police come into my house thinking that I am guilty of breaking the law until proven innocent, this is blatantly obvious from their attitude towards me. They check out my house as best they can without going through cupboards & draws just looking for anything that may be used against me. NEVER leave a police officer alone in your house, they must be under observation at all times, & I recommend that you video their visit, especially when they are checking your safe keeping & your firearms. If you do not have a video camera, use a sound recorder. You do not have to hold this device in your hands so it is visible, you can set up the video camera or the recorder in the room where your gun safe is before the police arrive. Simply turn on before admitting them into your house.



This woman was raped and forgave him, so they did a TED Talk together "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

 94% of all sexual assault cases go unreported and 1 in 4 North American women will be raped (source). These statistics sadly arent much of a shock when you consider how much the media and society sexualize women. Given the enormity of the stigma surrounding rape culture, do you really blame survivors or their rapists for not wanting to come forward?

Rangaswamy Elango of Panchayat Academy, India

Lots of people agree how great Gandhi was, but how many seriously try to follow in his footsteps? Rangaswamy Elango is a doer, not just a dreamer. He has managed in a few short years to completely turn around his village. Kuthambakkam, Elangos home town, is now widely regarded as a model village for rural India. Elangos goal is networking with other village leaders to create economies of permanence or local self-reliant sustainable villages in India. His story is very inspiring, so much so that I seriously considered moving to his village to learn more.

A Sincere Thank You to the One who Brings out the Worst in Me. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

It had been so long since wed spoken, I had almost forgotten how just a few sharp words from you can change me. 

The venom in your voice still makes my face flush. A lump swells in my throat, and though I will fight them, hot tears will roll down my cheeks to be brushed away by my shaking hands.

I used to beg for forgiveness, and apologize for things I didnt doanything to stop the shouting. That girl is long gone.

Ive labored toward my healing, shedding skins of lies you wrapped me in to keep me weak in my own self-hatred. Ive cut away any evidence of the marks you made on me. Ive grown stronger with each day weve spent apart.

Still, listening to your raised voice spewing hateful words in my direction shows me that the tissue beneath my scars is still tender. If I allow you to poke at my wounds, I may begin bleeding again.

You werent the first to hurt me. I swear Ive carried these wounds since the day I was born. Each cut a little deeper than the one before it. Just when I think Ive stitched myself back together, you appear again to show me where Im still broken.

You. Angry, bitter you. Youre the only one who can illuminate the nastiness that still lives somewhere inside me.

I remember a time when rage consumed my days. I was angry at the whole world. I was angry with myself. My temper showed up for occasions so trivial, its embarrassing. That was a long time ago. I havent seen that angry girl in years.

But, just a few minutes of dancing that same old dance with you brings her right back.

I didnt cower or back down this time. I bit back at you. I followed you all the way down to your level for a moment, where I became someone Ive never wanted to be.

You are the only person on this earth who can bring out that ugly, angry, resentful piece of me from years gone by. For this, I am truly grateful.

Im grateful because, without the mirror that you are, I might not see where the pain still lives inside me.

Without you, I might not see the sorrow that remains under the surface of my scars.

Without you, I might think that my work is done.

Though I wish there were another way, dancing this old, painful dance with you teaches me something no one else can.

In those brief, screaming moments of rageI realized that to forgive you would mean accepting an apology youve never spoken. To forgive you now would mean forgetting how my soul atrophied while in your care. Forgiving you now.....
