Is trading resilience for business growth a smart strategy? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Not long ago, the probability of a threat materializing was enough to open the IT pocketbook. Today, the mentality has shifted from one of risk prevention to one of risk marginalization. This mindset isnt just held by the CEO, but rather the entire C-suite. As a result, organizations are beginning to shift portions of operational risk accountability to line-of-business leaders. This approach must also tie into Resiliency Operations planning. This shift is understandable. Operational excellence, More

Delight "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ever since the iPhone X rollout, Ive been struggling to put into words that feeling the iPhone X brought to the table, something thats been missing from iPhone rollouts for some time.

When iPhone X release day hit, lots of other people felt that thing. Suddenly, there were lines again. The iPhone X display at the Apple Store was mobbed. That magic thing was back.

Ben Thomson, Stratechery:

Im spoiled, I know: gifted with the rationalization of being a technology analyst, I buy an iPhone every year. Even so, I thought the iPhone 7 was a solid upgrade: it was noticeably faster, had an excellent screen, and the camera was great; small wonder it sold in record number everywhere but China.

What it lacked, though and I didnt fully appreciate this until I got an iPhone X was delight.

Yup. Thats the word. Delight.

Face ID isnt perfect: there are a lot of edge cases where having Touch ID would be preferable. By its fourth iteration in the iPhone 7, Touch ID was utterly dependable and, like the best sort of technology, barely noticeable.

FaceID takes this a step further: while it takes a bit of time to change engrained habits, Im already at the point where I simply pick up the phone and swipe up without much thought; authenticating in apps like 1Password is even more of a revelation you dont have to actually do anything.

And:

The trick Apple pulled, though, was going beyond that: the first time I saw notifications be hidden and then revealed (as in the GIF above) through simply a glance produced the sort of surprise-and-delight that has traditionally characterized Apples best products.

Apple has found its inner delight. And that, as Ben so rightly puts it, is Apple at its best.

Perth pastor David Volmer jailed for ten years over pedophile ring sex abuse of teen girl aged 13 "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

Im republishing the article below, from 6 November 2015, because the last member of the Evil 8 pedophile ring that Pastor David Volmer was part of in Perth, Western Australia, Alfred Impicciatore, has been convicted today and is in jail awaiting a long prison sentence.

David Volmer was sentenced to over ten years in jail in November 2015, and will have to serve a minimum of eight and a half years. As a pedophile, and worse, a pastor who is a pedophile, jail wont be pleasant for him. Hell be heavily targeted by inmates, and wont be safe even in protective custody.

Pastor David Volmer was a missionary in Western Australia sent by Midrand Christian Church, South Africa.

Midrand Christian Church has made no attempt to pay the thirteen year old victim of their pastor, compensation.

This is typical behaviour of Christian churches Hillsong Church is the same. Head pastor of Hillsong, Pastor Brian Houston has repeatedly refused to help the many child sex victims of his father Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong even to the Commissioner of the Australian  Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Evil 8 paedophile ring saga ends with Alfred Impicciatore found guilty of child sex abuse "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

Perth Pedophile Alfred John Impicciatore- part of the Perth Evil Eight pedophile ring who had sex with a 13 year old girl solicited for cash by her father, who is already in jail for twenty-two years

 

Alfred Impicciatore is the last of a group of pedophiles known as the Evil 8, to be convicted of sex crimes against a 13 year old girl in Perth, Western Australian. The father pimped her out to these men.

Alfred Impicciatore ran away at one stage, while on bail. He and all alleged pedophiles should never be given bail.

The police caught him and he now has been found guilty of serious pedophile crimes. He is likely to get at least ten years in jail. Id prefer that pedophiles were never released from jail because all experts in this field maintain, from research and the evidence, that pedophiles are incurable.

The raise that stops inflation? "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

Take a hike

In London, so didn't watch the Melbourne Cup, though I sensed an ever-so-lightly dovish tilt in the Reserve Bank's interest rate decision. 

Over in the Old Dart, meanwhile, the Bank of England hiked its interest rates this week for the first time in a decade, albeit only back up to 0.50 per cent, the same level as the first half of last year. 

The Halifax reported an acceleration in annual UK house price growth in its index, back up to +4.5 per cent (on its customary 3m/YoY basis). 

Halifax cited the record high employment rate and ongoing low borrowing rates as factors, as well as the ubiquitous shortage of homes for sale.


The average price of 225,826 for October 2017 was the highest on record, according to the Halifax.

I did: Seth Rich. Brazile has apparently had an ongoing interest in looking into who killed Rich. Through a spokesman, the Rich family has thanked her for her support: Since Seth was murdered, Donna Brazile has been a great friend to the Rich family and has been extremely supportive of the familys efforts to find Seths killers.

Seth Rich Update! Donna Brazile Was Scared to Death , 1879 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

- Kangen Water, ionized, alkaline water, Call Tom @ 843-729-7837, website: http://www.TopShelfWater.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: Seth Rich Update! Donna Brazile Was Scared to Death , 1879 Synopsis: According to ZeroHedge, the most shocking revelation in Donna Braziles new book, Hacks, was that after Seth Richs murder, she became increasingly paranoid for her own safety. Brazile says she feared possible retribution from those who might blame her for the leaks of Democrat emails leaks which have now been proven to have come - not from overseas or the Russians but from within the DNC building itself because they were downloaded from the DNC servers directly onto a thumb drive. Many researchers believe that Seth Rich was killed as a warning to others from shadowy Deep State actors Brazile knew of within the Clinton campaign. Brazile, youll remember, was at that time the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee not exactly a small fish in Washington. However, so called top Democrats instructed her not to discuss her concerns with others. Brazile describes her gradual awakening to the scope of the email theft, then the realization that it could have been an inside job, and that brought on mounting anxiety Seth Rich seemed to be the most logical candidate. Blazile describes that she attempted to purge as many of these Deep State figures as she could, but it was like knowing you have rats in the basement. You take measures to get rid of them, but knowing they are there, or have been there, means you never feel truly at peace. According to ZeroHedge: Brazile writes that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and installing surveillance cameras at her home. Brazile says that her big wake-up call concerning the Seth Rich murder occurred when a month after the fact, and President Obamas 55th birthday party in the White House, Susan Rice and former Attorney General Eric Holder separately pulled her aside and quietly urged her to take the Russian hacking seriously.

Tokyo Inter Labor Rally Against Trump/Abes War On N. Korea, Privatization & Union Busting "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by Labor Video Project, November 6th, 2017, indybay.org.

Thousands of workers and youth from Japan and around the world participated in an international rally against privatization,union busting and imperialist war in Asia. Protesters also supported San Quintin Mexico farmworkers and protested Driscolls slave labor on the border of California. The rally was held on 11/5/17, that same day that Trump was visiting Abe and supporting Abes drive for war and militarization. Rightwing Japanese racist nationalists and Abe supporters were on the street for Trump and his nationalist American First. Tump is pushing Japan to militarize and get rid of Article 9 in the Japanese constitution that forbids offensive war. Trump and Abe are both for further militarization and for a war to surround China as well as attacking North Korea.

Workers from Korea Seoul KCTU, CWA and ILWU attended and spoke at solidarity meetings held in Japan to unite workers on both sides of the Pacific. Also a delegate of Berlin, Germany transit workers participated and spoke about the need to build a democratic bottom up trade union movement with the rank and file in control to fight privatization and union busting. Doro-Chiba, the militant Japanese railway union and unions throughout Japan participated and marched through the streets to Tokyo.

Big box stores are costing our cities far more than we ever imagined. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A Walmart and surrounding parking lot near Asheville (Source: Google Maps)

Drive a little ways out from the center of any town and youre likely to find several big box storesTarget, Home Depot, Piggly Wiggly, you name it. Theyre everywhere. If you took a helicopter or a drone above these parts of town, youd likely see a vast amount of land taken up with just a handful of stores and their accompanying parking lots. The houses and small businesses around them would be dwarfed in comparison. Not only do they use up a ton of land, but as a result, big box stores also demand miles of public infrastructure like pipes and roads to serve them.

But heres the crazy part: Those enormous stores are paying a negligible amount in taxes. For their size, they are contributing hardly anything while meanwhile demanding new electric lines and frontage roads and signalized intersections (among other things). In most cases, their taxes are not nearly enough to pay for the maintenance of these basic services, let alone the many other functions of our local governments that we expect taxes to pay for, like schools and fire protection.

Heres a textbook example of this, created by our friends at Urban3, a firm that analyzes the relationship between building design and tax production. The illustration below shows the tax value of a big box store near Asheville, North Carolina, compared with a modest downtown building . Pay special attention to the taxes per acre.

Stop the Leakage: How food-centered urban design solves economic challenges "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Nathan Pickard is an urban farmer and activist based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Today he's sharing a guest article about how food-focused urban design can build strong towns. For more on local food issues, visit our food page.


What happens when you eat the wrong food over and over again? We call it leakage. Leakage is when capital exits the economy rather than remaining in it.  Our current food system as designed (or left un-designed) is a constant source of leakage for our cities and a missed opportunity for urban planners.

Here in Tulsa, Oklahoma Ive spent a good amount of time over the years attending public meetings and being involved in urban planning processes. I was involved in the PlanIt Tulsa process to update our Citys comprehensive plan.  I was on the Citizens Advisory Team for our North Tulsa Sector Plan, and Ive been involved with multiple other small area plans. But none of these plans addressed this leakage an issue I believe could be handled by including food production in urban design.

Back in the 1830s, German economist Johann Heinrich von Thunen proposed an urban design that incorporated food production.  Much like the historic cities we all love, the design Thunen proposed was based on the needs of humans, rather than automobiles.

A city food design proposed by Johann Heinrich von Thunen in the 1830s

A city food design proposed by Johann Heinrich von Thunen in the 1830s

In his treatise, The Isolated State, Thunen proposed dividing cities into rings of agricultural production. The most intensive farming was positioned closest to the inner city, followed by agro-forestry, grain farming, animal raising, and finally wild nature.  

About 11 years ago, I moved my family to one of the most socioeconomically disadvantaged zip codes in Oklahoma.  It didnt take long to realize the effects of living in a food desert, where healthy food cannot be purchased within a mile of our home. This caused me to begin reading about urban farming and the idea of permanent agriculture systems, inspired in part by Thunen's ideas.

In June of this year, I felt comfortable enough to challenge myself to eat only from what Ive grown in my backyard.

That experience, which was...

Weekly phpMyAdmin contributions 2017-W44 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Most of last week was spent on bringing U2F and 2FA to phpMyAdmin. Besides that it was really just minor bug fixing.

We've had one pull request for the 2FA already open, however it was not really in quality to be merged and the original author really didn't come back to address our concerns. I was thinking to start over from his work, but in the end I've decided to start from scratch and come with code which will make easier to implement additional second authentication factors in the future.

Anyway what is now there is support for HOTP/TOTP authentication (Google Authenticator and similar) and FIDO U2F hardware tokens. The latter has been tested with TREZOR, but should work with any compliant device.

"Regret: The Weight Of The Past" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

"Regret: The Weight Of The Past"
by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM

"Holding onto regret is like dragging the weight of the past with us everywhere we go. It drains our energy, leaving less available for life in the present because we are constantly feeding an old issue. This attachment can cause illness the same way watering a dead plant creates decay. We know that something new and beautiful can grow in its place if we only prepare the soil and plant the right seeds. We also know that we create our lives from our thoughts, so dwelling on the past may actually recreate a situation in our lives where we are forced to make the choice again and again. We can choose to move on right now by applying what we have learned to the present and perhaps even sharing with others, transforming the energy into something that is constructive and creative for ourselves and others.

Forgiveness is the soothing balm that can heal regret. In meditation, we can imagine discussing the issue with the self of our past and offering our forgiveness for the choice. In return, we can ask for our selves' forgiveness for keeping them locked in that space of judgment for so long. We may also want to ask forgiveness from anyone else who may have been affected and perhaps offer our forgiveness. By replaying the event in our minds, we can choose a new ending using all that we now know. Imagine that you have actually gone back into the past and made this change, and then say goodbye to it. Release your former self with a hug and bring the forgiveness and love back with you to the present. Since we are usual...

Philippine drugs board chief quits after contradicting President Duterte "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

.

MANILA (Reuters) The head of the Philippines narcotics control body has resigned after just five months in the job, the second successive official to vacate the post for making statements contracting President Rodrigo Duterte.

Retired army general Dionisio Santiago on Tuesday said he quit as chairman of the Dangerous Drugs Board after receiving a call from Dutertes executive secretary, a few days after he publicly said the construction of a 10,000-bed mega drug rehab facility was a mistake.

Dionisio Santiago

Countering illicit drugs is the centerpiece policy of Dutertes presidency and he has repeatedly threatened to kill dealers and users and said he was willing to be jailed for it.

His crackdown has killed thousands of Filipinos, but the administration insists it is committed to arresting dealers and rehabilitating users, citing the new facility and the voluntary surrender of 1.3 million addicts and pushers as a sign of its positive intent.

My rule is the boss is always right and if you think the boss is not right, refer to rule No. 1, Santiago told Radyo Inquirer, adding he had already submitted a two-sentence resignation letter.

Santiago had said the government may have miscalculated with the rehab center and should have pursued a practical community-based rehabilitation program.

Fewer than 500 people have been admitted to the facility, which was launched last year amid great fanfare and was funded by a wealthy Chinese businessman.

Duterte gave Santiago the job in June after the former head was forced to quit after disputing the presidents repeated statements that there were more than four million Filipino drug addicts.

Duterte has never disclosed the source of that information and some experts say it is exaggerated.

Separately, Dutertes new health minister, Francisco Duque, on Tuesday voiced his approval for using marijuana only for research purposes in medicine.

He said he would prefer marijuana in pharmaceutical form if the country legalized its use.

Popocatepetl Volcano drops ash on central Mexico towns "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Central Mexico's Popocatepetl Volcano scattered ash on two nearby towns on Saturday, following a series of minor eruptions. The National Disaster Prevention Center (Cenapred), which monitors volcanic activity, said some 200 "low-intensity exhalations and three explosions" had taken place starting early Friday and ending early Saturday. The last eruption, at 6:08 a.m., led to "a slight drop of ash" in the towns of Yecapixtla and Zacualpan, both in central Morelos state. Located just 60 km south of the capital Mexico City, Popo, as the volcano is commonly known, has been off limits to mountain climbers since the long dormant volcano became active again in 1994.

Every song of freedom is born in prison.

Dane Powell, the first of the J20 defendants to be sentenced, just completed his four-month sentence after taking a non-cooperating plea deal in which he pled guilty to two felony charges. During the demonstrations against Trumps inauguration, Dane was filmed risking his freedom to save a child who was brutally attacked by riot police. Dane teamed up with Joseph Buddenburg, another political prisoner serving two years for Conspiracy to Violate the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, to compose the following guide to surviving jail, prison, and transportation between holding facilities. Whether you are preparing for the possibility of doing time yourself, getting ready to support someone else through a sentence, or simply curious to learn more about life inside the prison-industrial complex, read on for a wide range of essential tips.

When youre facing a possible prison sentence, the anxiety can be overbearing. No person who is in prison knows what lies ahead from one day to the next. It is quite literally a step into the unknown.

The events we will describe here are a consequence of the political situation in France and in Europe as a whole: the repercussions of the 2008 international financial crisis are still noticeable in our daily lives, European governments and their security policies cant contain or palliate the refugee crisis, the ISIS attacks, the State of Emergency, the COP21, increasing disillusionment with traditional political parties, never-ending austerity measures, elections in which the far right is gaining more and more power.

Hard-line Blairite Remainers use sex scandal to target pro-Brexit MP Kelvin Hopkins "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hopkins accuser deletes links to anti-Corbyn faction

A lot of people in the public eye particularly journalists and politicians seem to be afraid to say this at the moment for fear it could damage their career or their party.

But Im not a journalist or a politician so I will.

It would be extremely naive indeed to think there arent people cynical enough in politics to use the current appalling sex scandals engulfing Westminster for their own nefarious political ends.

Truth is never black and white. It is always complicated.

And so it is with the Westminster sexual harassment cases coming out at the moment.

Some of the accusations are appalling, particularly the accusations that serious crimes been covered up by both the Tory, Lib Dem and Labour leaderships. I hope in these cases the perpetrators are named and shamed and justice is served:

Attorney Yitzhak Molcho at the Jerusalem District Court on October 6, 2008 (Michal Fattal/Flash90)

Yitzchak Molcho, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus chief negotiator and personal envoy for over a decade, was named Tuesday morning as a suspect in the investigation into suspected corruption in Israels purchase of submarines from a German shipbuilder.

Molcho, along with his legal partner David Shimron, Netanyahus cousin and personal attorney, was detained by the Israel Police for questioning on Sunday and has since faced two marathon days of interrogation. While Shimron, who has previously been questioned under caution in the investigation, dubbed Case 3000, was publicly identified upon his detention, Molchos name remained under gag order until Tuesday.

Investigators suspect that state officials were paid bribes to influence a decision to buy submarines and patrol boats from German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp, despite opposition from the Defense Ministry.

Police suspect that the Molcho tried to push the submarine deal during his diplomatic trips abroad, while Shimron sought to promote the interests of the German shipbuilders within Israel.

New Delhi: The national capital woke up this morning to a blanket of thick haze with pollution levels breaching the permissible standards by several notches.

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) recorded severe air quality, meaning that the intensity of pollution was extreme. According to the CPCB, moisture in the air coupled with a complete absence of wind  led to this situation. Total calm conditions, marked by the complete absence of wind has led to the situation. The moisture has trapped emissions from ground level sources, Dipankar Saha, CPCBs air lab chief, told PTI.

The runway at Indira Gandhi International Airport has been closed. Over 20 flights have been delayed so far. Rail traffic too has been affected, with at least 12 trains delayed due to decreased visibility, reported ANI.

'Purge' of corrupt Saudi princes and businessmen widens, travel curbs imposed "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A campaign of mass arrests of Saudi Arabian royals, ministers and businessmen expanded on Monday after a top entrepreneur was reportedly detained in the biggest anti-corruption purge of the kingdom's affluent elite in its modern history. The reported arrest of Nasser bin Aqeel al-Tayyar followed the detention of dozens of top Saudis including billionaire investor Prince Alwaleed bin Talal in a crackdown that the attorney general described as "phase one". The purge is the latest in a series of dramatic steps by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to assert Saudi influence internationally and amass more power for himself at home.

Essen 2017: Best Board Games from the Biggest Board Game Convention "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Board gamers take note:

Every October, the German city of Essen becomes the epicenter of tabletop gaming geekdom. Tens of thousands of visitors descend on the International Spieltage fair, where publishers from around the world debut their up-and-coming releases over four frantic days of dice chucking, card shuffling, and cube pushing.

For gamers, its an enthralling, bewildering, almost intimidating spectacle. Where gaming events in other countries, like Gen Con in the US or the UK Games Expo, incorporate celebrity guests, panel discussions, and side attractions, Essen is focused squarely on the gameseverything from light and fluffy family favourites to impenetrable brain-melters.

Given that its the highlight of the global gaming calendar, I headed along for a barrage of board games and bratwurst. Here are the best new games I saw.

Warning issued amid seismic activity at Mount Lokon in North Sulawesi, Indonesia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Local authorities have prohibited residents and visitors from coming within a 1.5-kilometer radius from the crater of Mount Lokon in Tomohon, North Sulawesi, amid increased volcanic activity. The volcano had shown increased seismic activity marked by tremors since Thursday, said Farid, the head of Lokon's monitoring post. Authorities have issued a waspada (Level II) alert level for the volcano. "The tremors from Mt. Lokon suggest that gas and magma are migrating, which means pressure has been accumulating," Farid said on Saturday. The Lokon monitoring post has been coordinating with the Tomohon Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) since Friday in taking preventive measures.

Boris Johnson gaffe that could see Briton jailed for longer in Iran was slip of the tongue and people shouldnt overreact, says Liam Fox "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Mr Johnson faces calls to resign ahead of a planned call with his Iranian counterpart on Tuesday

By Joe Watts Political Editor

Boris Johnsons slip of the tongue could double womans jail term. Liam Fox says people should not overreact

Cabinet minister Liam Fox has said people should not overreact to slips of the tongue, after a verbal gaffe by Boris Johnson led to a British citizen being threatened with a longer prison term in Iran.

Dr Fox was attempting to defend the Foreign Secretary after incorrect comments he made in Parliament led to Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe being hauled in front of an Iranian court and told her sentence may be doubled to ten years.

Mr Johnson was to call his Iranian counterpart today to undo damage after telling a committee hearing that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe worked in Tehran teaching journalism before she was arrested and jailed for spreading propaganda despite a central part of her defence being that she had never done so.

He has failed to make a public apology or admission that his words were incorrect, as Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry called for him to resign if turns out that charity worker Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe is imprisoned for longer.

DON'T TRY TO BREAK US WE'LL EXPLODE : Der G20 2017 in Hamburg umfassender Bericht und Analyse. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

G20.

Der G20 Gipfel 2017 provozierte die bislang heftigsten Auseinandersetzungen in Deutschland in diesem Jahrhundert. Wir waren vor Ort und haben kontinuierlich berichtet; in dem Monat, der seitdem vergangen ist, haben wir die Berichte aus Hamburg zusammengebracht und einen komplette Chronologie und Analyse hergestellt. Herausgekommen ist eine epische Geschichte von Staatsgewalt und breitem Widerstand dagegen, welcher auf diesem Level bislang sowohl in den USA wie auch in Nordeuropa kaum beobachtet werden konnte.

In den nchsten Wochen wird dieser Text auch als Broschre erscheinen, die dann kostenlos bei www.black-mosquito.org bestellbar sein wird. Zine als PDF runterladen.

Der Hhepunkt der Aktionen Freitag Nacht am Rande der polizeifreien Zone.

Die Kurzversion: Die Polizei versuchte mit roher Gewalt all jene, die gekommen waren um gegen den G20 zu protestieren zu isolieren und zu terrorisieren. Im Lauf der Geschehnisse brachten sie so einen groen Teil der Bevlkerung gegen sich auf und die Stadt geriet auer Kontrolle. Dies ruft uns wieder ins Bewusstsein, dass die wichtigsten Ereignisse an den Rndern von jedem gegebenen Konflikt stattfinden die Verbreitung von Rebellion ist bedeutsamer, als die Aktionen selbsternannter Radikaler. Die Strategie der Polizei unterstreicht wie wichtig altbekannte Zwangsmittel fr die Herrschaft der G20 sind; nichtsdestotrotz konnten wir beobachten wie eine entschlossene Bevlkerung selbst die best-trainierte und ausgerstete Polizei aus-manvrieren kann. Wenn 31.000 militarisierte Polizist_innen, die ihr ganzes Repertoire bis kurz vor tdlicher Gewalt anwenden, nicht in der Lage sind die Ordnung beim wichtigsten und bestgesicherten Ereignis des Jahres in der reichsten Nation Europas aufrecht zu erhalten; dann ist es vielleicht auch wieder vorstellbar, eine Revolution zu denken.

Not that she cares, but Feinstein acknowledges there's still no evidence of Russian collusion "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The investigations of Russian collusion into the 2016 election have been going on for nearly 10 months now, and key Republican lawmakers are ready for the congressional committees looking into the matter to wrap it up. No evidence of collusion has been found - a point even some top Democratic lawmakers are acknowledging. Sen. Dianne Feinstein was asked Sunday by CNN's Jake Tapper about revelations that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos sought "dirt" on Hillary Clinton from someone with Russian connections who claimed he could provide "thousands" of her emails. Papadopoulos plead guilty of lying to the FBI about his contact with a Russian national but it still was not evidence of collusion.

Every Conversation every held "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

So, lets do this again, but this time cleanly. In a Facebook Post, Michael Seemann has been explaining why the Facebook App does not listen to every word you ever say, all of the time.

He is right. A telephone is a device with limited power supply, limited cooling and limited, metered connectivity. It has an operating system that monitors and manages these critical resources, hard. You cant listen to things all of the time and expect not to be noticed. Like, the battery is empty and my LTE budget is gone noticed.

Other devices, an Alexa, a Sonos One or a Google Home, are on cabled power and unmetered Wifi. The could theoretically get away with listening all of the time.

So how much data is that? Lets do the math.

Lets assume one human talks, on the average, one hour each day. We are not recording environmental noise or gaps in speech. Just all the words.

Lets also assume there are at most 20.000 talking days (55 years) in a human life on the average.

Lets assume a really good Codec, like G.723.1 with 750 Byte/s.

One hour of talking is 750 Byte * 3600s = 2700000 Byte per Hour, or 2.6 MB per hour. A less frugal codec would consume about 10x this.

A lifetime of speech in a human is around 50 GB of recording, then.

There are currently 7.5 billion (10E9) humans alive. Lets assume there have been 5 times as many humans alive ever, with 20.000 hours/50 GB of space requirements for each.

So 37 500 000 000 humans consume 50 GB each, thats 1 875 000 000 000 GB, 1 875 000 000 TB, 1 875 000 PB, 1 875 EB  of storage.

I am simplifying by rounding up to 2000 EB, or 200 Million 10 TB drives of data. We can have 12 of these in a 1U server, so 16 666 666 servers.

Google or Facebook each have around 3 Million servers. So, no, not possible by a factor of not quite 10.

On the other hand, if we made no error with the assumptions, barely possible for all living humans. Quite possible for some hundred millions of people.

Alert up as Mayon Volcano shows 'abnormal behavior' in the Philippines "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) raised Alert Level 1 over Mayon Volcano in Albay province after it recorded 25 volcanic earthquakes on Monday and the sulfur-dioxide (SO2) emission went significantly higher than the standard measurement. In its latest bulletin, Phivolcs said the quakes that rocked the volcano on Monday and the spewing of an above normal SO2 gas signify the volcano remains restive. SO2 emission was measured at 633 tons, which is significantly higher than the standard measurement of 500 per day The volcanic quakes brings to 91 the total number of quakes that jolted Mount Mayon for the past two days. When asked about the increasing SO2 emission, Phivolcs volcanologist Ed Laguerta said the abnormal emission could either be due to steam degassing or magma pressure beneath the volcano vent.

Native American Heritage Month Event

Published November 7, 2017

 

NEW YORK On Sunday, November 12, from 11am-4pm EST online, American Indian professionals, along with faculty and staff of Fordham University at Lincoln Center, will honor Native American Heritage Month. This unique event will offer career development advice and information on job training grants in different professions every half hour to young American Indians across urban, suburban areas and tribal nations.

The free online and in-house event at Fordham School of Law is intended to attract high school students and young adults from American Indian communities who are interested in attending college or advancing their careers in various professions. Registration is available via GoNativeFordham.com to receive a link to a live stream.

The idea was conceived of to respond to a strong need to connect young people in these communities to experts who can help offset the reported 70 percent high school drop-out rate and less than one percent enrollment rate at most universities, says Melissa Cornick, of the Board of Advisors at Fordham College at Lincoln Center, and former award winning television producer for 60 Minutes, 20/20 and Dateline who created this original career streaming event concept.

We are excited to speak with participants, says Fordham Universitys Joel de Andrade, Assistant Director of STEP and C-STEP programs at Fordham. The programs support under-represented groups to pursue careers in mathematics, science, technology and health-related fields. Carlyle Begay, Navajo and former Arizona State Senator specializes in health policy and will provide steps for health management careers. Other speakers include award winning rap artist and actor, Gary Litefoot Davis, who is Chichimeca and Jody A. Cummings, Lumbee, and DC-based lawyer for tribal environmental rights. Professors of engineering, STEM, entrepreneurism, performance arts will join more top Native experts with guidance.

Local participants will also speak and register to attend the screening of the live stream event which commences at 10:30am at Fordham School of Law, 150 West 62nd Street at Lincoln Center. Refreshments will be served. Re...

Make Your Own Effigies : A Tactic for Delegitimizing Authority and Rendering Dissent Visible "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A burning effigy of Donald Trump.

Fourteen years ago, at the onset of the occupation of Iraq, one CrimethInc. cell set out to break the illusion of jingoistic pro-war unity in their small conservative city. To accomplish this, they built an effigy of George W. Bush and staged boxing matches throughout downtown on Halloween night so everyone could see how much rage and disrespect was felt towards the so-called Commander in Chief. Theatrics like this can delegitimize and demystify the reigning authorities, making it increasingly difficult for them to count on the obedience of the general population. Now, a week ahead of Halloween, we offer this how-to guide from our anarchist cookbook Recipes for Disaster so you can make effigies of your own to deploy against todays tyrants.

Make Your Own Effigies

In the US, effigy-making has a rich radical heritage that stretches back to before the first American Revolution. If you cant actually pummel or set fire to your oppressor, it can be heartening to do so to a surrogate; this is good for morale and helps to make discontent visible. In this regard, the effigy is the opposite of the monument: it serves to demystify and delegitimize the target. Authorities and counter-revolutionaries will do their best to enforce even symbolic respect of their idols, so be sure to deploy your effigy with plenty of supporters around or a plan for escape.

One well-known effigy format is the piata. Filled with candy or other goodies, piatas can be at once radical and festive. Piata-beating is a participatory game that everyone wins. Trump piatas became wildly popular after his racist comments about Mexico. At every public gathering, children of all ages should be smashing away at an effigy of the President of the United States.

Paper mach is one of the best materials for constructing piatas. To make it, heat three parts water and two parts cornstarch until it becomes thick; let it cool a bit, and apply it to newspaper to make it stick together. Set up a wire frame, stretch the wet newspaper over it, let it dry, and repeat until the layers are durable; now you can paint it. Leave a hope in your piata through which to fill it with goodies; that can be the last part you seal up. You can also make piatas out of painted cardboard boxes, in a pinch. In either case, make sure its not too sturdy to break open with a few strong blows.

One doesnt just beat effigies; one may also burn them. The day a war starts or the results of....

From Democracy to Freedom Presentations : In Philadelphia, Richmond, and... "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This winter, we will be offering presentations on our new book, From Democracy to Freedom. If you can arrange something for us in your town, university, or elsewhere, please contact us: rollingthunder@crimethinc.com. Below are the details about the next two presentations, coming up this weekend in Philadelphia and Richmond.

Presentation: From Democracy to Freedom

Democracy is the most universal political ideal of our day. George Bush invoked it to justify invading Iraq; Obama congratulated the rebels of Tahrir Square for bringing it to Egypt; Occupy Wall Street claimed to have distilled its pure form. From the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea to the autonomous region of Rojava, practically every government and popular movement calls itself democratic.

And yet it was democracy that brought Donald Trump to power, not to mention Adolf Hitler.

What is democracy, precisely? How can we defend ourselves against democratically-elected tyrants? Is there a difference between government and self-determination, and are there other ways to describe what we are doing together when we make decisions? Drawing on the latest book from the CrimethInc. collective, the presenters will explore these questions and more. Join us for a lively discussion!

Texas shooting details reveal gunman Devin Kelley past charges for domestic violence and animal cruelty "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Latest on the church shooting in Texas (all times local): 7:50 p.m. The two men who pursued the gunman after the Texas church shooting visited a vigil together and prayed with community members mourning the 26 people killed in the attack. Stephen Willeford and Johnnie Langendorff arrived at the vigil with relatives Monday night. They locked arms in a circle and bowed their heads in extended prayer. Many wept openly, including Willeford, who could be seen wiping away tears streaming down his chin. As the pastor shouted, "Jesus, this is your town," the prayer broke up and the two men left. Willeford ran from his home with his rifle and confronted the gunman, Devin Kelley, outside the church Sunday. Authorities have said two of the bullets fired by Willeford hit Kelley in the leg and torso. The gunman fled in his vehicle. Johnnie Langendorff was driving by the church when Willeford flagged him down and they pursued the gunman in Langendorff's truck. Kelley eventually crashed and was found dead in his vehicle. ___

No structural reason Sinn Fin could not win power in a majority rule Northern Ireland "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Heres an intriguing line from the Fiach Kelly piece that Pete blogged yesterday

Over the past week, Sinn Fin was, according to those with knowledge of the talks, ready to deal but was not met with equal enthusiasm from Arlene Foster and the DUP, which is understood to be looking for commitments that the Executive and Assembly cannot be easily collapsed.

This is not an inconsequential holdout position. Of course, it was relatively easy for SF to collapse the Assembly by refusing to re-nominate, but it was something the clever clogs at St Andrews clearly did not anticipate.

If theyve done it once, apparently without political impairment, why would they not do it again? And if they can do it again, why put such unstable institutions back up without looking at how it might be repaired?

Malachi ODoherys gone back to the dusty shelf and brought down something that might possibly fit better now than the last time it was looked at:

in our exasperation with trying to find a heartbeat in a recumbent horse, we might be overlooking another important change that has occurred in that same time period.

And it is this: the old structure of Northern Ireland, which inspired power-sharing in the first place, has changed. There is no longer a majority unionist community and a minority nationalist one. Both are minorities.

The prospect of a resumption of the 50 years of misrule is gone. So, why do we need power-sharing?

Thats really not a bad question to ask at this point, even if most of the answers to are likely to be a reflexive NO! And this is why..

If we scrapped power-sharing, Sinn Fein would probably find itself in Opposition against the DUP, but perhaps not. And, even so, it would have a realistic prospect of power next time.

It could woo friends in the Ulster Unionist Party and Alliance and form a coalition that would govern. The numbers are there. Of course, it would have to change.

In British politics there is an understanding that a party can only take power if it appeals to the middle ground; if it can sell its message to people who might otherwise vote against it. This is a moderating dynamic.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Heres Whats On This Morning "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

It is Tuesday morning and we are about to kickoff a fresh day of trading in bitcoin price space. Things moved pretty fast overnight and we saw both a breaching of fresh highs as well as a pretty steep correction back down towards the 7000 level. Exactly how long this volatility will remain (we are sure to see some continued volume heading into the fork) is yet to be seen but one thing is for sure price is well and truly enjoying a strong upside run and, even if we do see a correction, there is a good chance it will be short term and temporary as opposed to a longer-term reversal of the overarching bullish trend.

So, as we move into the session today, lets try and get some levels together that we can use to push forward into any added volume and to concurrently draw profit from the market as and when things move. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we are looking to jump in and out of the markets according to the rules of our intraday strategy. It is a one-minute candlestick chart and it has our key range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range we are using to set up against price for the session today comes in as defined by support to the downside at 7153 and resistance to the upside at 7217. We are going to stick with our breakout strategy for the time being, so we will look to enter long on a close above resistance towards an immediate upside target of 7260. Conversely, if we see a close below support, we will enter short towards a downside target of 7100.

Lets see what happens.

Clara Pratte Becomes New Chief of Staff for Navajo Nation Office of President & Vice President "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Navajo Nation Office of President and Vice President Chief of Staff Clara Pratte

Published November 7, 2017

WINDOW ROCK The Office of the President and Vice President is pleased to announce a new addition to the administration: Clara Pratte who will be the chief of staff.

I am extremely excited to welcome Clara Pratte to the Office of President and Vice President, President Russell Begaye said. With the hiring of our new chief of staff, we continue to invest in strong leaders who set the tone for the administration and the Navajo Nation as a whole.

Pratte is a graduate with honors from the University of Arizona, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, and Carnegie Mellon University, where she received a Master of Science in Public Policy and Management.

What she brings to the table are years of experience working on behalf of the Navajo Nation and for Native American tribes across the country as the national director of the U.S. Small Business Administration for the Office of Native American Affairs, executive director of the Navajo Nation Washington Office, interim CEO of the NOVA Corporation, Vice President of Bracy, Tucker, Brown & Valanzano and more.

Mrs. Pratte is a distinguished leader and is highly qualified to run the Navajo Nation government, Vice President Jonathan Nez said. I worked with her previously as a Council delegate when she headed the Navajo Nation Washington Office and can attest to her ability.

Pratte is an expert in public policy, business and economic development. She has been an advocate for Navajo in numerous areas, including, but not limited to: education, transportation, gaming, community development and indigenous rights.

I am honored to join the Begaye-Nez administration, Pratte said. I am passionate about public service, and, in particular, service to the Navajo Nation. I look forward to utilizing my knowledge in management, lending, procurement, entrepreneurial development programs, and processes regarding participation in the federal market by tribally owned enterprises for the benefit of the Navajo Nation.

Originally from Lupton, Ariz., Pratte is Kinyaaanii nish Bilagana bshshchn Honghahnii dashicheii Bilagana dashina...

Tajikistan Set to Renew Imports of Uzbek Gas "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A source at a state-run natural gas company in Tajikistan has told media that they are finalizing negotiations to resume the import of gas from Uzbekistan after a five-year hiatus.

Asia-Plus news website on November 7 cited the official at Tajiktransgaz as saying a preliminary agreement for gas deliveries was reached during recent talks in the Uzbek capital, Tashkent.

No price has been set yet and there is no available information about the volumes to be imported, but the Tajiktransgaz source claimed the cost would be considerably lower than that dictated by global market rates.

Uzbekistan stopped selling gas to Tajikistan in 2012, citing a lack of spare capacity. But that cutoff was preceded by several years of escalating deployment of gas as a diplomatic weapon by Uzbekistan in a long-running dispute with its neighbor.

Starting from 2007, Uzbekistan began to demand Tajikistan pay more for its gas amid complaints of unpaid bills. By 2008, the rate was set at $145 per 1,000 cubic meters of gas, and then up to $300 for that amount the following year. With costs going up, the volume of gas imported by Tajikistan fell and the country gradually transitioned to alternative forms of generating power and heating.

Uzbekistans historic enmity toward Tajikistan has stemmed in large part from the latters intent to develop a major hydropower plant that Tashkent worries could have a detrimental impact on its agricultural sector.

The likelihood of Uzbek gas once again flowing into Tajikistan is the result of the efforts of Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, who has made mending ties with neighbor the centerpiece of his rule since coming to power last year. Efforts toward Tajikistan so far have focused on easing travel between the two countries and boosting bilateral trade.

Ever shrinking airline seats make travel more uncomfortable "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Spirit Airlines, at least, is honest about the tight quarters on its planes. "We're a cozy airline," it says on its website. "We add extra seats to our planes so we can fly with more people. This lowers ticket prices for everyone, just like a car pool." It's not news that airlines have been squeezing more - and smaller - seats into the backs of their planes. The question is how far they can push their quest for higher profits before running into a backlash from their customers. "The commercial side - primarily the people who run airline revenue departments - want more seats on planes," said Henry Harteveldt, co-founder of Atmosphere Research Group, an airline and travel industry analyst. They're up against "the people in the airlines' marketing departments, who are trying to act as their passengers' advocates and push back on some of these initiatives." To accommodate the airlines, seat manufacturers have been skimming and trimming from just about every dimension, relocating the seatback pocket, replacing padding with elastic mesh and whittling down the armrests. "There are two goals with seats: to squeeze in more people and to make the plane lighter," said Richard Aboulafia, aviation analyst with the Teal Group.

Sleep deprivation stops brain cells firing properly, changing how we see the world "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sleep deprivation stops brain cells communicating properly and affects how people see the world around them, a new study has shown. The new research, which has serious implications for driving while tired, shows that parts of the brain actually turn themselves off to rest even though a person is still awake. Brain scans of sleep deprived people by scientists at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)have shown for the first time that fatigue disrupts the speed the brain cells communicate and prevents memories being encoded properly. It also causes temporary lapses in memory and vision.

UK: Poll shows public have lost faith in Theresa Mays handling of Brexit negotiations UK will be worse off after Brexit "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By

Public confidence in the Brexit negotiations has fallen to the lowest it has ever been and faith in Theresa Mays ability to strike a good deal has also taken a knock, a new poll has shown.

For the first time in over a year an opinion tracker has found that more people believe the UK will be worse off as a result of the vote to leave than better, amid fears that key talks have stalled.

David Davis the Brexit secretary will visit Rome today in a bid to win support for Britains bid to start talks about trade, but research shows the British people fear this will not be enough.

Talks were due to being in December but EU sources have cast doubt on this timetable. Mr Davis will travel to Brussels on Friday as part of a new round of negotiations during which the British side will hope for progress on what the post-Brexit deal could look like.

But the poll, conducted by ORB International, will

"An Easy Way to Avoid Pig-Headed Mistakes" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

"An Easy Way to Avoid Pig-Headed Mistakes"
by Bill Bonner

"Large groups of people do extraordinarily pig-headed things from time to time. Republicans can drive a car more or less as well as Democrats or Communists. Of the millions of autos on the road, driven by Rosicrucians, Rotarians, Riverkeepers, and all manner of people with all manner of ideas, there are relatively few accidents. Making their own decisions about their own lives, people of all sorts get along passably well - even when they are driving automobiles at high rates of speed with a Democrat headed right for them. They obey simple, general rules - keep to the right (or left!) - and decide the minor details for themselves. Usually, they get where they are going. But trust these people with public affairs and theres a good chance youll wind up driving tanks through Poland.

The human brain is well adapted to driving a car and to looking out for itself. Without conscious thought, it makes life and death calculations on a second-by-second basis, for the most part successfully. But it evolved while living in small groups without the abstractions of large-scale, modern, public life.

Are We Better Than This? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Considering that I quit drinking more than three years ago, which was far too early for coping with the electoral disappointment that came last November, I think Ive done a decent job of blotting out the pain or at least cramming it down so deep that I cant find easy access to it. But, even so, I should have known that it is still accessible and that it would be a bad idea to revisit it by looking at Esquires recap.

Yes, I definitely triggered my PTSD by perusing that article. And it made me realize that as hard as we fight against it, the Trump presidency is slowly asserting itself as something normal. It wasnt just that everyone was living in some kind of bubble of denial. Whatever predictive data existed, it overwhelmingly pointed in the direction of Clinton winning the election. The people who were willing to put hope over facts were the ones expecting Trump to win despite the evidence, and despite the election day exit polls that were so bad for Trump that his team had to call Matt Drudge for moral support.

I think the denial was in thinking that the American people would never elect a man like Donald Trump. To believe such a thing was tantamount to slander. We couldnt really be that awful.

And that was the trauma for me. It wasnt that I personally got the election wrong. It wasnt that Obamas legacy would be tarnished and his accomplishments undermined. It wasnt all the policy setbacks that I could see coming. It was what Trumps victory said about my fellow citizens that I found crushing.

And it wasnt just one thing. There were so many aspects that were upsetting. The way Trump talked about people was appalling, whether they were immigrants or minorities or women or Muslims or his political opponents or the reporters covering the campaign. The way Trump acted towards women and minorities throughout his life was transparently immoral. His business dealings were clearly fraudulent, and so were his claims of charity. His personal behavior was lecherous and dishonorable.  His disregard for the truth was stunning.

But it was also his complete lack of preparedness for the job. Making him president was like asking a toddler to defuse a bomb.  No one in their right mind does something like that.

The real disservice is that we werent warned. If the polls had foretold a Trump victory, we would have had some time to adjust our opinions about our fellow citizens and lower our expectations accordingly, but all the indications were that people got it.

Thats why I found this so irritating. It comes from the day after the ele...

Caving In a Senator's Ribs is a Misdemeanor Now? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I am confused about why the man who attacked Senator Rand Paul is being charged with fourth-degree assault, which is a misdemeanor. According to Doug Stafford, a senior aide to the Kentucky senator, Paul suffered five broken ribs, three of which were displaced. In addition, he has bruises to his lungs: This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force. It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying.

Im not a doctor, but those kind of injuries arent typically sustained in an ordinary fistfight. They seem more consistent with a fall or some kind of vehicular accident. Short of that, maybe a rifle butt or repeated kicking with steel-tipped boots might break and displace ribs. At a minimum this attack seems like a felonious crime, perhaps even attempted murder.

Yet, were not getting a whole lot of detail.

Rene Boucher, 59, a Bowling Green doctor, was arrested Friday and charged with fourth-degree assault after an incident at Pauls home in the gated Rivergreen community just east of Bowling Green.

Boucher, 582 Rivergreen Lane, was released Saturday night from the Warren County Regional Jail on a $7,500 bond, according to online jail records.

The arrest warrant in the case indicates that Paul told police that his neighbor came onto his property and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground and causing pain. According to the warrant for Bouchers arrest, Paul had injuries to his face and had trouble breathing due to a rib injury.

Something is not right with this story. I dont doubt that being forcibly tackled from behind could cause some rib and lung injuries, but it sounds more like he was run over by a golf cart.

And then the assailant is a bit odd:

Boucher is a Bowling Green anesthesiologist and pain specialist who developed a product called Therm-a-Vest, a cloth vest partially filled with rice and secured by Velcro straps that is designed to relieve back pain by delivering heat directly to the areas of the back where most pain is felt.

Boucher applied for a patent for the vest in 2003 and has marketed it through the QVC shopping channel.

It almost sounds like Boucher was trying to create a natural client for his QVC product. What would compel an anesthesiologist to attack a U.S. senator? Is he crazy or was he provoked?......

Is Michael Flynn Cooperating? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I obviously dont know if its true that Michael Flynn has flipped on Donald Trump, nor do I really know what evidence he could provide if he decided to spill the beans. But I have noticed that hes gone completely quiet. I still see people like Roger Stone and Carter Page mouthing off on a regular basis, but Flynn seems to have vanished.

He faces the prospect of being charged with many of the same crimes that have been leveled against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, but he hasnt been charged with anything so far unless those charges are under seal and we simply dont know about them yet. Thats what happened with George Papadopoulos who was arrested at Washington-Dulles International Airport on July 27 and pled guilty on October 5th. We didnt learn about any of that until the day before Halloween.

One thing to keep in mind is that Flynn was much more of a direct cause of the Russia investigation and the Special Counsel than Manafort. The FBI went to Trump almost as soon as he was inaugurated and told him that his National Security Adviser was a national security risk who was subject to Russian blackmail. Hes probably been the highest priority subject of the counterespionage and counterintelligence investigation from the beginning, both because of his former position as the Director of Defense Intelligence and because he was known to be buddying up to Vladimir Putin and communicating with the Russian ambassador. When Trump put him in charge of our national security, that was a bridge too far for the Intelligence Community, and theyd like to prove that their fears were justified.

So, for all these reasons, it was a little surprising to see Manafort charged before Flynn. And the explanation could be as simple as the fact that Manafort wouldnt cooperate but Flynn did.

I dont expect it to take to much longer before we get some news on this front.

Is Saudi Arabia At War With Iran on Four Fronts? Donald Trump Backs Saudi Arabia to Neutralise Iran "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A few months ago Saudi Arabia more-or-less declared war on Qatar. Today theyve more-or less declared war on Lebanon (because Hezbollah exists) and Iran (because Yemen shot a missile at them). And of course theyre already at war for real against Yemen. Thats a lot of countries to be at war with.

I dont really have anything special to say about this, other than the fact that all four of these conflicts are actually fights or proxy fights with Iran. Apparently Saudi Arabia is getting a lot more serious about this, and President Trump seems to be all for it.

Proposed Natural Gas Power Plant Under Review for Greene County, PA "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Marcellus natural gas pipeline and shut-off valve

### Natural gas plant proposed for coal-rich Greene County ###

From an Article by Reid Frazier, NPR State Impact Pennsylvania, November 2, 2017

A New York company is planning to build a natural gas plant in Pennsylvanias biggest coal county. Hilltop Energy Center LLC, a Huntington Bay, N.Y.-based company, is proposing to build a 600-megawatt natural gas power plant in Cumberland Township, Greene County.

Construction on the plant could start in November 2018, says William Campbell, III, an environmental consultant for the project. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) held a public hearing Thursday in Carmichaels, Pa. for the facilitys proposed air quality permit.

The project is among dozens vying to take advantage of Pennsylvanias booming gas industry. Energy firms have proposed over 40 gas-fired projects in Pennsylvania since 2011, according to federal data. Fourteen are under construction or operating.

In southwestern Pennsylvania, five gas plants have been proposed, and one Tenaska Westmoreland Generating Station is under construction, said Alan Binder of the DEPs Southwest Bureau.

Campbell says the states surge in natural gas production is the main reason why the company is building the plant in Greene County, the largest coal-producing county in the state. There is a surplus of gas, which means gas prices are very low, and predictions are theyre going to stay very low, which makes it very economical and makes this a great region for this kind of plant, Campbell says. Greene County has the site, it has a receptive population here that is good for this (type of project). Its the right location.

Binder said that since Pennsylvania does not meet federal standards for ozone, a pollutant that can exacerbate asthma and cause lung disease, the plant will be required to install equipment to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compoundstwo classes of chemicals that create ozone.

In addition, the plant will be required to purchase Emissions Reduction Credits, or ERCs, to displace the pollution it will create by buying credits for pollution reductions from plants that are cleaning up or shutting down.

The plant will employ 20 to 30 full-time employees once complet...

dependent on the goodwill of those in FG headquarters who wield too much power "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Some farewell card for Leo from Alan Shatter, as he leaves politics

From my personal experience over the last 3 years I could not in good conscience ask the electorate in Dublin- Rathdown constituency and those who have voted for me in the past to vote for an unreformed Fine Gael in the next Dail.

I have reached this conclusion after lengthy reflection with a heavy heart after many years of Fine Gael membership, including over 30 years as a Fine Gael TD.

What used to be core Fine Gael values and principles of integrity, decency, truth-telling and fairness are no longer the obligatory moral touchstones for todays Fine Gael leadership. This is so despite the decency of many individual FG Oireachtas members and the decency and idealism of the vast majority of Fine Gael members.

Too many decisions are made and actions taken in the shadows with a sense of impunity, too many off the record briefings take place to mislead and too many games of charades are played to deceive the public.

The total dependence of Fine Gael TDs on the leader of the day for political advancement and position and of Fine Gael Senators on a FG Taoiseach for Senate seats in a reduced parliamentary party has resulted in there being too few members of the parliamentary party willing to ask the hard questions and challenge wrong actions.

This is contributed to by Fine Gael election candidates, both inside and outside the Houses of the Oireachtas, believing their prospects of election to be substantially dependent on the goodwill of those in FG headquarters who wield too much power and have been in charge for longer than is healthy in any democratic political party.

As a consequence, an unhealthy culture has developed in the party to which upholding values and principles is irrelevant with no real accountability for unacceptable conduct.

Uzbekistan: A Breeding Ground for Terrorism? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Tashkent (EAN A mass killing in New York perpetrated by a citizen of Uzbekistan is reviving fevered speculation about the dangers of Islamist-inspired terrorism spilling out of Central Asia.

People who study the region have long warned, however, against rushing to weave simplistic narratives about religiously motivated violence.

The biography of the man that police have identified as the driver of a rented van that plowed into pedestrians and cyclists on a Manhattan bike path on October 31 is a vivid illustration of the challenge facing those in search of clear-cut explanations.

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, is the archetypal migrant who got a lucky break in his pursuit of the American Dream. He moved to the United States in 2010 by winning a slot in the US Diversity Visa Lottery an initiative that US President Donald Trump is now threatening to scrap. In 2015 alone, more than 1.3 million Uzbeks roughly one in every 25 people living in the country tried their luck in the lottery. Only around 2,500 of those applicants got US visas.

Somewhere along the line, it all went wrong for him.

Argentinas Largest Trading Platform Plans to offer Bitcoin Futures "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Futures trading has become incredibly popular in the Bitcoin world. Speculators still get exposed to price volatility without buying Bitcoin itself. So far, the number of platforms trading said Bitcoin futures is still relatively small. Argentina will get its own platform to focus on cryptocurrencies moving forward. Mercado de Termino de Rosario sees a lot of merit in BTC trading and speculation right now.

It is remarkable to see how Bitcoin has evolved in Argentina. It is another one of those South American countries struggling financially. Inflation and a decreasing Peso value require some creative solutions. Consumers and entrepreneurs are looking for new ways to make money. It is the perfect place for a Bitcoin boom, although nothing spectacular has happened yet. Mercado de Termino de Rosario aims to change all of that in the very near future.

Bitcoin Futures are Coming to Argentina

More specifically, Argentinas largest futures operator will introduce cryptocurrency futures contracts. This decision comes at a time during which the Bitcoin price has set several new all-time highs in quick succession. Moreover, major altcoins are starting to recover, which can create a lot of interesting trading opportunities. Most investors dont want to buy Bitcoin or other currencies directly, though. A futures market is the best solution in this regard.

For the time being, this new feature is still in development. A basic framework has been created for custodial services and using Bitcoin as collateral. An official launch of this new market should occur before the end of this year. At the time of writing, no exact date has been communicated by ROFEX. The company is pretty excited about this development, mainly because their customers requested this new trading option. It doesnt appear as if any other cryptocurrency besides Bitcoin will be supported at launch.

In the end, these futures will expose more people to Bitcoin and the BTC price. This will also lead to even more speculation. Whether or not that is a good thing, remains to be seen. It is evident there is a lot of positive momentum in the Bitcoin community right now. At the same time, the upcoming SegWit2x fork may still disrupt a few things. More and more companies are focusing on Bitcoin futures as we speak. Slowly but surely, cryptocurrency is gaining mainstream traction.

Lightning bolt kills surfer off Bali, Indonesia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

During a surf lesson in Indonesia on Sunday, a Belgian tourist and his instructor were struck by a lightning bolt. The instructor survived, but the tourist did not. Denis Andre Dasoul, 34, was pronounced dead at Canggu Medika Hospital at around 2:45 PM on Sunday. That's where an ambulance took the victims after onlookers on the beach helped the duo to shore. According to, and roughly translated from, the Bali Post, a witness on the scene said: "The condition of the victim's chest is blue and possibly died on the way to the hospital. While the instructor experienced blue on the left leg thigh." Indonesian news outlet, Detik News, reports: "The locals went directly to the two, the instructor was saved but the first aid effort for Denis was in vain." The incident occurred at Batu Bolong Beach, also known as Old Man's, located at the southern edge of Bali's Canggu region. Waves there are friendly for longboarders, SUPs, and beginners alike. It's also a highly popular tourist destination.

Face of courageous woman accused of 'witchcraft' is digitally reconstructed 300 years later "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The face of an 18th-century 'witch' who died in jail before she could be burned for her 'crimes' has been digitally reconstructed. Lilias Adie, from Torryburn, Fife, died in 1704 while held in prison for her 'confessed' crimes of being a witch and having sex with the devil. BBC Radio Scotland's Time Travels programme has now unmasked her face by working with a forensic artist at the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee. The team believes it is likely to be the only accurate likeness of a Scottish "witch" in existence as most were burned, destroying any hope of reconstructing their faces from skulls. Presenter Susan Morrison said: "It was a truly eerie moment when the face of Lilias suddenly appeared.

Britain still proud of its shameful role as patron of Israel's occupation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Balfour Declaration taught Israel an important lesson: It would have a free hand as long as it relied on a superpower patron The oldest physical footprint left by the 100-year-old Balfour Declaration in what is today Israel is visible from my home in Nazareth. From my vantage point on a ridge above the Jezreel Valley, Balfouriya appears like a dark smudge below in the middle of the vast agricultural plain. The small, exclusively Jewish farming community was established in 1922, five years after Britain's foreign secretary, Arthur Balfour, signed a letter pledging help to create "a national home for the Jewish people" in what was then Palestine. Political opportunists Named in Balfour's honour, this was the first Jewish community to be founded in Palestine after the declaration was issued. Today, its 500 residents live in one of more than a dozen communities set up to "Judaise" a swath of land in the Lower Galilee, known in Arabic as Marj Ibn Amer, that Palestinians once farmed. At the time of the Balfour Declaration, the vast majority of Jews in Europe and the United States viewed the Zionists heading to Palestine, like those who founded Balfouriya, as something akin to a cult.

Texas church shooter tried to bribe underage girls to date him "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Texas church shooter Devin Patrick Kelley was so pathetic, he tried to bribe and threatened ex-girlfriends to take him back - and he stooped so low as to date a 13-year-old when he was 18, according to former flings. "He was very sick in the head," Katy Landry, a former girlfriend of Devin Patrick Kelley, told NBC News. "Years after dating me he would try to bribe me to hang out with him. He ended up assaulting me." Landry said she met Kelley in church as a teenager, but it was not immediately clear when their relationship began or ended. Another girl, Brittany Adcock, 22, said Kelley dated her for two months around 2009 when he was 18 and she was just 13.

Texas church mass murderer bought weapons legally "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This 6 November 2017 video from the USA says about itself:

TYT Politics Emma Vigeland gives the latest on the massacre on Sunday. A gunman killed at least 26 people at a church service in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

From the Washington Post in the USA:

The Air Force says it failed to follow procedures, allowing Texas church shooter to obtain firearms

The Air Force says it failed to follow policies for alerting federal law enforcement about Devin P. Kelleys violent past, enabling the former service member, who killed at least 26 churchgoers Sunday in Sutherland Springs, Tex., to obtain firearms before the shooting rampage.

Kelley should have been barred from purchasing firearms and body armor because of his domestic violence conviction in 2014 while serving at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. Kelley was sentenced to a year in prison and kicked out of the military with a bad conduct discharge following two counts of domestic abuse against his wife and a child, according to Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek.

Initial information indicates that Kelleys domestic violence offense was not entered into the National Criminal Information Center database, Stefanek said in a state...
