Wanted "IndyWatch Feed Alllocal"

Untitled-2

Hi Newlands.

I'm a writer and I'm currently researching a story on young women around 18 years old. I write creative non-fiction and I conduct immersive research - it looks like hanging out rather than formal interviews. 

My interest in this topic is looking at how social media generally, and its messaging specifically, has impacted this generation of women - the way they relate to themselves and other women, the way they feel about relationships, body image, sexuality, work, leisure; the way they use language; their goals for themselves and how they use their time. I think the sensitive portrayal of these issues would be really valuable in terms of what is working and what isn't in our norms around media and technology, parenting and education more broadly. And I am always guided by the subject's boundaries in terms of privacy and anonymity. It will start off as an essay in The Monthly, and I might collect my pieces on this into a book.

I am looking for women around 18 years old to chat to about the impacts of social media. If you are interested or know of someone who might be interested please send me an email sarahkras@gmail.com

Thanks!

How to Experience Heaven on Earth "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Anita Moorjani; UPLIFT

Lessons from My Deathbed

When I was born into this world
The only things I knew were to love, laugh, and shine my light brightly.
Then as I grew, people told me to stop laughing.
Take life seriously, they said,
If you want to get ahead in this world.
So I stopped laughing.
People told me, Be careful who you love
If you dont want your heart broken.
So I stopped loving.
They said, Dont shine your light so bright
As it draws too much attention onto you.
So I stopped shining
And became small
And withered
And died
Only to learn upon death
That all that matters in life
Is to love, laugh, and shine our light brightly!
Anita Moorjani



What if you were suddenly to realize that this is heaven (or nirvana)this physical life we are living right now? I know it sounds crazy, and I can sense some of you thinking, If this is heaven, then why does it feel like hell to me? And I hear you.

It sure felt like that to me when I was being bullied as a child; taunted and discriminated against for the color of my skin and my family originthings I had no control over. And it certainly felt like hell again when I was going through cancer, being in constant pain and fear for all those years. But play along with me for a bit.

Google Chromes Jumping Dinosaur Once Again Most Popular Game of the Year "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. For the third year in a row, a consortium of gaming websites have found that Google Chromes T-Rex Runner, a game that users can play while they are waiting for their internet to come back, was the most popular video game on earth.

The game, first released in 2014, features stunning graphics, top-notch gameplay, and a highly  immersive storyline. Much like the popular Star Wars film series, it takes place on a hostile desert world, similar to, yet marvelously different from our own.

Users play as protagonist T-Rex, which is short for Tyron Reximillian, a lonely figure lost in an unforgiving wasteland. In order to reunite with his estranged wife and adopted daughter T-Rex must do battle with the evil Lord Cactus who sends unending hordes of his minions to thwart the hero.

Along the way Reximillian learns a thing a two about friendship, and the power that comes from both inner turmoil and self reflection.

Obviously Im a huge fan of early Japanese cinema, said creator Sebastien Gabriel Tyron Reximillian is based largely off of Kihachi Ichikawa from A Story of Floating Weeds, one of the great Asian silent films of the 1930s. Honestly thats why I chose to not have Tyron speak during the game. And I only had one or two megabytes of bandwidth to work with.

Not to give too much away, but at a certain point it suddenly becomes night time in the game which definitely gives it a more adult feel if you know what I mean, Gabriel wrote. Its the kind of character development I havent seen since Breaking Bad ended.

Deep Divisions Over Litecoin Cash Fork "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When cryptocurrencies fork, their blockchains are not the only things that divide. As was witnessed when Bitcoin Cash forked from the original, the community and developers were also split and still are. A similar thing is occurring with Litecoin and an impending fork is due that its creators are claiming is a scam, and nothing to do with them.

Forking free-for-all

There is currently nothing to stop anyone making their own cryptocurrency or forking off from an existing blockchain. Countless new iterations of Bitcoin have emerged in the past few months from GOD to DARK. People can get scammed if they dont do their own research and blindly follow the streams of dross that pollute social media platforms. Governments are anxious to regulate the industry to prevent these sorts of things from happening.

On the surface Litecoin Cash appears to be just another one of these, riding on the name to garner interest. It comes with a plan to increase the block time, enable SHA256 mining, and offer 90% cheaper transaction fees than its parent altcoin. The fork will happen at block 1371111, which is around February 18 or 19. Charlie Lee and the Litecoin team however want nothing to do with it;

New Study Links Human Consciousness to a Law That Governs the Universe "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Chelsea Gohd; Futurism

Human Entropy

Our species has long agonized over the concept of human consciousness. What exactly causes it, and why did we evolve to experience consciousness? Now, a new study has uncovered a clue in the hunt for answers, and it reveals that the human brain might have more in common with the universe than we could have imagined.

According to a team of researchers from France and Canada, our brains might produce consciousness as something of a side effect of increasing entropy, a process that has been taking place throughout the universe since the Big Bang.

Their study has been accepted for publication in the journal Physical Review E.


The concept of entropy is famously confusing, and the definition has evolved over time. Essentially, entropy is a thermodynamic property that refers to the degree of disorder or randomness in a system. It can be summed up as the description of a systems progression from order to disorder.

The second law of thermodynamics states that entropy can only remain constant or increase within a closed system a system cannot move from high entropy to low entropy without outside interference. A common example that demonstrates entropy is an ice cube melting the cube is in a state of low entropy, but as it melts and disorder grows, entropy increases.

A Former Canadian Defense Minister Speaks Out About the Secret Cabal that Rules the World "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Buck Rogers; Waking Times

The occult influence on todays society is pretty much mainstream now. Even the most obvious of symbols, such as the one-eyed celebrity, permeate pop culture. Its a meme that has gone from fringe to full-on famous, and its either real, or its one of the most persistent and coincidental collective fantasies of all time.

A former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer, says the conspiracy is real. He is well-known for sharing his professional insight into some our most enduring myths, including the presence of aliens on planet earth.

Paul Hellyer, who was the Canadian Minister of National Defence in the 1960s during the Cold War, claims to have inside information that top governments are in cahoots with aliens.

Mr Hellyer first spoke about his belief that aliens were on Earth in 1995, and since then has become an authoritative figure in the UFO community.

Your Computer May Not Survive a Collapse But These Off-Grid Archiving Strategies Will "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I will admit that I am not the most technologically savvy individual, and Im certainly not armed with all the modern conveniences that most people take as a necessity.  Cell phones, Kindle devices, M-pad/I-pod/UFO-whatever-for-musicdont use em.  That being said, I know they have their merits, but its the same type of lesson I tried to impart to my son when he went into the service.

He picked up one of those high-speed wrist compassesthe digital kindbut I constantly remind him to use that old-fashioned lensatic compass as his mainstay.  He listens, although he prefers to use his gizmo.  Im just happy he carries the lensatic with him and knows how to use it.  I made sure he knew how to use it.

Create a Survival Library with Hard-Copy Notes and Archives

In this light, remember that all of our technology can collapse in the blink of an eye.  The collapse can be precipitated by any number of thingsgrid failure/brownouts, an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) strike, a nuclear war, or just a societal collapse that has a downtrickle of losing critical infrastructure and modern power systems.  In that light, it is best to take your digital and electronic libraries and ensure they are duplicated into hard-copy.  Consider investing in a typewriter to pass this valuable information on. Lets give some suggestions, and you can take them, and tailor them to suit your needs.

  1. Whenever you watch any kind of training video/DVD, you should always take notes and summarize it. Pick up the key points, supplementing them with your own notes and diagrams to help clarify the instruction.  A composition-type notebook works well for this.  I take rough notes on a sheet of paper, and then recopy them into the notebook.
  2. Summarize books and other works: Turn a 300-page book into 8-10 pages of intense notessummarize and shoot for brevity and clarity in your notes. This is not to say, dont keep books, but rather, read them and take good notes that you can glance at to glean any important information you may need to use.
  3. Print out the important how-tos and archive notes: dont just store it on hard drive or jump drive! Although that is important, you want to make sure your information is printed off.  Strive for accuracy, compactness, neatness, and organization in all of your notes.

Endor Introduces a New Dimension to Predictive Analysis Using Blockchain Technology "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Predictive analysis is such an important concept that very big establishments such as Fortune 500 companies and tech-giants are known to invest heavily towards it. The ability to predict future trends effectively helps both individuals and businesses make successful plans and robust decisions within the ecosystems where they belong.

So far, the existing systems that enable the acquisition of near accurate predictions involve having access to scarce and expensive data science PhDs, a model per prediction and expensive limited scale. These conditions make it almost impossible for individuals and smaller businesses with limited budgets to participate effectively.

What blockchain can do

The democratization that is made possible by the implementation of blockchain technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is enabling Endor to provide the opportunity for individuals and businesses at all levels to enjoy the benefits of prediction. The Endor protocol affords the opportunity for users to ask predictive questions and get accurate predictions on a platform that is described as the Google for predictive analytics.

This solution is powered by MITs novel Social Physics technology and provides the first decentralized, trustless, censorship resistance behavioral prediction platform that provides high-quality results for any predictive question in minutes. No coding, data cleaning, or a team of PhDs required.

Something new in the industry

Unlike existing platforms like Argur and other decentralized platforms that provide prediction opportunities by using crowd wisdom, Endor operates by using science and data analytics, thereby providing automated, accurate, affordable AI predictions for individuals and businesses. Here, predictive insights are based on the collective analysis of the contributed data, offered at a low cost, while allowing data owners to control the privacy of their data.

Endor CEO, Yaniv Altshuler, is a researcher at the MIT Media Lab, at the Human Dynamics group headed by professor Alex Pentland who is also a co-founder. Prof. Alex invented Social Physics science. He is described as one of the worlds 7 most powerful data scientists by Forbes. A director of the MIT Media Lab,  Board member at Google, AT&T, Nissan, and leader of the World Economic Forum.

Could an Ancient Virus Be Responsible for Human Consciousness? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Tim Collins; Mailonline

Scientists claim our ability to have thoughts may have evolved from alien genetic code over the past half billion years

Experts studied origins of a gene which is vital to higher thinking in humans
They think a virus infected a four-limbed mammal around 400 million years ago
Over the millennia this evolved into the Arc gene found in the brains of humans
This gene is believed to be vital to how our nerves transmit information


An ancient virus that injected humans with 'alien genetic code' gave our ancestors the capacity for higher reasoning, new research suggests.

Human consciousness may be the result of a string of instructions making its way into our genome through an infection in the early days of four-legged species, experts say


The information contained within the viral cells became part of our genetic makeup, where it evolved into the Arc gene over the past half billion years.

This gene is believed to be vital to how our nerves transmit information and may be responsible for our capacity to think and feel in the way we do.

PR: Community Choice Gives Power to Backers KICKICO Announces Community Choice Function "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

KICKICO Announces Community Choice Function

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

MOSCOW As a first in a series of major new initiatives, KICKICO, bringing DAO into the ICO landscape, is announcing the launch of Community Choice, an ambitious new function that will give the crypto community the ability to vet, rate, and filter the ICO space and to determine which ICOs are worth launching. The launch is aimed to facilitate better involvement and seamless interaction, including the 55,000 strong KICKICO community. By establishing the Community Choice vote, KICKICO is giving a voice to backers so that they have a more meaningful say about what campaigns should launch and grow. Meanwhile, this platform becomes more than just a launching pad: It is also an invaluable standard for weeding out dodgy ICOs.

Through Community Choice, the community evaluates and votes on ICOs. Afterwards, the campaigns are the redirected to a moderating team for a final verification of the legal and technical compliance of a project. But Community Choice now means that the moderators themselves are no longer involved in making the subjective decisions about what is a good or bad platform.

Criteria for Voting and Participating
For a user to have a vote on an ICO, he needs to link his account with an email address and verify the account wallet. This verification is needed is to ensure the security and authenticity of the user. (Fake users will not find it profitable to go through this step.) Verifying the wallet comes with a 100-KICK charge in order to prevent illicit bot activity during voting, a small fee that protects against fake accoun...

Mumsnet brought to its knees by DILDO storm "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The website Mumsnet was on its knees yesterday after a mum used its message boards to debut her male equivalent of a  MILF.

I saw this derogatory term everywhere, said Mrs Jane Brooker of Carshalton Beeches, so I thought, why cant we ladies have a nice, clean codeword for the buff parade outside the school gates? Thats when it came to me: DILDO Dad Id Like to Do. Its short, smooth, and rolls off the tongue.

Mrs Brooker splashed her term all over Mumsnet, unveiling her hotness hierarchy. Her best friends husband became a total dildo, Barack Obama a dildo if I could afford the airfare and Hugh Grant the eternal dildo.

Chaos ensued, until the websites founder, Jane Owen, sprang to Mrs Brookers defence. I cant see what the fuss is about. Mind you, when Abismum posted about the intimate pleasure a rabbit can give in the page dealing with pet care we nearly had an animal cruelty charge.

Mrs Brooker was red faced when told of her error. What, you shove them up where? For fun? Eeuw, thats the last time I coin a phrase in a hurry. But is it still ok to call Ricky Gervais a Total Waste of Anyones Time?

South Korea Wont ban Cryptocurrencies but Crack Down on Illicit Activty "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

It seems another cryptocurrency shakeup will happen in South Korea. With exchanges imposing self-regulation, an interesting precedent is created. The government now wants to crack down on any illegal and unfair activity in this industry. This also means there will be no ban on cryptocurrencies whatsoever. It is another positive change to further legitimacy cryptocurrency in the country.

There is still a fair amount of illicit activity in the cryptocurrency industry. Addressing this problem will not be easy whatsoever. In South Korea, the government wants to focus on transparency for this industry first and foremost. Additionally, they want to remove the illicit activity from the equation altogether. It will not be an easy challenge, though. Taking firm action against entities conducting in illicit activity will yield some interesting results.

The Cryptocurrency Situation in South Korea

This new approach is the direct result of a petition sent to the government not that long ago. In this petition, over 280,000 residents of South Korea demand reasonable cryptocurrency regulation. It is certainly possible to regulate cryptocurrency companies without banning this form of money. South Korea seems to lean toward taking this approach as of right now. Whether or not this is due to the petition itself, remains to be seen.

All of this means we will see additional guidelines in the future. What that entails exactly, remains unknown for the time being. All options remain on the table, which can mean positive things are bound to happen in South Korea. The fact there will be no ban on this new form of money is by far the most important aspect. It is also worth noting the local government is a firm proponent of blockchain technology as well.

There are still a lot of different opinions among the government right now. With no unified front, the decision can easily swing either way. For now, we will have to wait and see what the future holds in this regard. It is possible South Korea will fully legitimize cryptocurrency, just like...

A simplified explanation of event propagation in JavaScript. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Imagine this scenario:
You are building a list of users. Youre displaying their names, favorite colors, and emails. When you click on a user (one row in the table), you want it to take you to the user record. Except for when you click on email, then it should pop up an email dialog.

You might write some code like this (were using a table here because its easy to understandthough of course we might use something much more complicated in our project):
















Name Colors Email
Susie Blue, Red susie@hello.com

If you wanted to click on one of those rows, youd probably add an onClick function to the row. That way if they click anywhere in the row, they can go straight to the user record.

To take care of the email, well do an tag on the text.

But wait! The email dialog pops up, but we also navigate to the user record. Thats not what we want! How do we handle this? Enter event propagation.

Event propagation in a nutshell.

Event propagation is a way to describe the stack of events that are fired in a web browser. In our table example above, clicking on the a tag is the first event that we will fire, but there are other events too.

To understand that concept, you must understand that the elements on a web browser are nested. They do not cover each other up. So a click on the a tag also clicks on the row, the table, the div in which the table is nested, and anything else all the way out to document , the complete container that holds everything in your browser.

If weve put any other onClick events inside of these other elements, they will also be fired when we click on the a link in the table. Thats why we will be directed to the user record when we click on the email link. Its going to perform both the onClick function for the a link and the onClick function for th...

Developersheres how to get potential employers and clients to notice you "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photo by Carl Heyerdahl on Unsplash

Noteany ideas I share are my personal views, based on my experience finding developers for companies and individuals.

The problempresenting your work

The way you dress is the way you will be addressed.

Often, developers find it hard to present their previous projects in an employable way. This denies them a lot of handsomely paying job roles.

Many developers complain about not having projects to work on, and I always ask this simple question: The projects you have worked on, how well have you presented them to potential clients?

I understand it is hard work to make yourself as employable as possiblebut it surely pays.

It is one thing to be a skilful and talented developer, but it is another thing for people who dont know you from anyone else to recognize this.

The Solution

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himselfLeo Tolstoy

You wanna work for a company like Google, Facebook, Amazon? You gotta start presenting yourself that way.

Every company wants talented employees, and they are willing to go any length to get the best. You will be removing yourself from the path of people who might consider you as the best if you poorly present your work.

I will talk about key things I believe a developer should have in place before applying for any role or projects.

A focused mind

I decided to put this first, because it is really crucialespecially in a world where new technologies come out day by day.

Often, developers jump from one framework to another, without a good understanding of any of them. Then they risk becoming a jack-of-all-trades and master-of-none.

It is important that we focus on one thing. If it is web development or mobile development, do it with all your heart and soul. You cannot cheat nature. You can only be super awesome in what you spend more time on.

Personal website

It is important for developers to have a personal website that explains key things about them. One should be able to visit your website and get to know interesting things about you. There are several things you can include on your personal websites. For example: your projects, your pers...

Five arrested in operation targeting ice in Lismore "IndyWatch Feed Alllocal"

Police have arrested five people today as part of Strike Force Junor, targeting Ice distribution in Lismore.

Police will allege during a search of a property at South Lismore in November 2017, police located and seized methamphetamine, instructions for manufacturing various prohibited drugs, a paintball firearm with ammunition holder, a stun gun, seven cannabis plants, a Harley Davidson motorcycle, and a turtle.

A 37-year-old man was charged with supplying a prohibited drug, possessing or using a prohibited weapon, possessing an unauthorised firearm, dealing with the proceeds of crime, possessing instructions for manufacture, cultivate prohibited plant, goods in custody, and hinder/resist police.

The man was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court on Thursday (February 15).

A 26-year-old woman was charged with supplying a prohibited drug and intending to pervert the cause of justice.

She appeared at Lismore Local Court on Wednesday and was refused bail to appear at the same court on Tuesday, March 20.

A 34-year-old man was charged with supplying a prohibited drug and participating in criminal group.

Both these men were granted conditional bail to appear at Lismore Local Court on Monday 5 March 2018.

Strike Force Junor and Strike Force Fourter continue with their inquiries and operations. Further arrests are anticipated.

Richmond Local Area Command Crime Manager, Detective Acting Inspector Russell Ewing, said that the operation removed a significant amount of drugs from the area.

We will not be changing our focus from targeting drug dealers, he said.

It is not surprising to see few people effectively report this income to the IRS right now. Less than 100 people have reported any Bitcoin gains or losses so far. This does not seem to add up when looking at the bigger picture. It is possible this situation will change in the near future, though. For now, the IRS will keep monitoring this situation.  

Over 250,000 individuals have filed federal taxes through Credit Karma Tax this year. That is a healthy number, but things are not adding up. Of those reports, less than 100 individuals reported a cryptocurrency transaction. Even though the IRS wants these capital gains taxes, most users seemingly dont bother filing. Everyone knows there are a lot of Americans who hold or trade cryptocurrencies these days. All of them should be reporting capital gains to the IRS as of this year.

Report Your Bitcoin Holdings to the IRS

For the time being, it remains to be seen how this situation will evolve. A recent survey shows how over half of the people questioned never reported cryptocurrency gains to the IRS. It is evident that is not the best course of action for any party involved.  After all, the IRS is cracking down on Coinbase users already thanks to a recent court case. It is not unlikely they will go after other exchanges to get the information they need either.

Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are considered to be a property for federal tax purposes. As such, it is in everybodys best interest to report capital gains to the authorities. It is unclear if there will ever be major penalties for not doing so, though. Avoiding taxes is never a smart idea,  especially not in the United States. Any profit or loss made from the sale or exchange of these currencies needs to be reported. There are various tools out there to help Bitcoin users out in this regard.

No one knows for sure how many Americans hold a cryptocurrency portfolio as of right now. With the pseudonymous nature of cryptocurrency, its only normal tracking down this activity is pretty difficult. With more blockchain analysis companies popping up, the truth will come out eventually, though. For now, no one is really surprised so few people report B...

I email 1.2 million people every week. Heres what I say to them. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

It was March 2016. The freeCodeCamp community was growing. Wed just hit a quarter of a million campers, all through word of mouth.

But the community was spread out across thousands of chat rooms, forums, and Facebook groups. Some people only used the freeCodeCamp.org learning platform. Others only followed the Medium publication or subscribed to the YouTube channel.

I wanted a reliable way to communicate with all of these campers. So I turned to the oldest method on the internet: email.

I thought about the way that most organizations sent emails. They used fancy images and colors, and every word was carefully chosen by a marketer. Even when these emails mentioned your name, they didnt feel very personal.

Since I tended to unsubscribe from those kinds of emails, I knew I needed to try a different approach.

I thought hard about what kind of email I would like to receive. People are busy. Theyre more busy than ever before. So these emails needed to be short, simple, and worthy of peoples scarce time.

I started from the fundamental assumption that everyone who signed up for freeCodeCamp.org did so because they had a goal in mind: getting a new job, getting a promotion, or maybe even creating their own business.

So I focused on sharing resources that would help people achieve those goals.

Each week, developers publish tons of new articles, videos, podcasts, interactive web apps, and other resources. Rather than try to share all of these, I made the decision to only share three each week. The best three.

I created a simple plain-text format. And every email I sent was structured the exact same way:

Here are this weeks three links that are worth your time:
1. [link description] (N minute read): [link 1]
2. [link description] (N minute watch): [link 2]
3. [link description] (N minute listen): [link 3]
- Quincy Larson
Teacher at freeCodeCamp.org
[one-click unsubscribe link]

All of these emails came straight from my personal email address. I sent them using Mail for Good, a free open source tool that the freeCodeCamp community built for nonprofits.

So far, my instincts seem to have been right. After two years, only about 25% of people whove ever received an email from me have chosen to unsu...

Global shares mostly higher ahead of US inflation data "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

TOKYO (AP) Global shares were mostly higher Wednesday as investors awaited the release of U.S. inflation data. Trading was winding down in China ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays.

KEEPING SCORE: Frances CAC 40 added 0.6 percent to 5,140.46, while Germanys DAX rose 0.8 percent to 12,293.65. Britains FTSE 100 was up 0.7 percent at 7,216.32. U.S. shares were set for gains with Dow futures up 0.6 percent at 24,775 and S&P 500 futures 0.5 percent higher at 2,674.70.

U.S. INFLATION: Market players are awaiting the U.S. Labor Departments monthly report on consumer prices, due later in the day. The report takes on added importance since recent swings in financial markets were touched off by worries that inflation might rise too quickly, prompting the Federal Reserve to accelerate monetary tightening.

THE QUOTE: It certainly feels like the proverbial calm before the storm and rightly so as there are plenty of reasons to be cautious, but whether it warrants the present sense of foreboding in the markets or not, equity investors seem undeterred by the possibility of higher yields, Stephen Innes of OANDA said in a commentary.

JAPAN GDP: Japans economy grew at a slower than expected 0.5 percent annual pace in the October-December quarter, the eighth straight quarter of expansion. Growth for the entire calendar year was 1.6 percent, up from 0.9 percent in 2016. The preliminary data released Wednesday buttressed economists expectations that growth will slow in the coming year.

ASIAS DAY: Japans benchmark Nikkei 225 slipped 0.4 percent to finish at 21,154.17, while Australias S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.3 percent to 5,841.20. South Koreas Kospi gained 1.1 percent at 2,421.83. Hong Kongs Hang Seng rose 2.3 percent to 30,515.60, while the Shanghai Composite index added 0.5 percent to 3,199.16. Markets in Southeast Asia were mixed.

ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude lost 20 cents to $58.99 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It fell 10 cents to $59.19 a barrel in New York Tuesday. Brent crude, used to price international oils, fell 31 cents to $62.40 a barrel in London.

CURRENCIES: The dollar fell to 107.31 yen from 107.55 yen. The euro climbed to $1.2364 from $1.2351.

Paradoxical Reaction by J Ian "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Open up your jaw
In such and such
A serpentine fashion,

Blue pill awaits
Your trembling mouth.

Fear not, though
You may soon know
Its paradoxical reaction:
To throw you
Deeper into
The rabbits
Hole.

It was not healing
To be found
In my words,
Nor depth
In my advice,

Was only
Greater confusion
In my script,
A sophisticated
Device.

When you are down
Blue pill will
Push you down further,

When you are fearful
Blue pill
Will remove your voice,

When you think
The darkest thought
You have to offer,
Blue pill
Will make you
Think it twice.

Blue pill
Draws forth
From its greatest deep,
Things we
Once
Thought better
To safe keep.

Stripped of
Compassion,
Bare to see,
Blue pill
Leads you
Down to the
Bitterest sleep.

Digest in
Your tender gut,
This paradoxical reaction.

Afraid?
You are still just a babe,
New to sense,
Yet never too young
To be free
Of blue pills
Growing

Protecting Your Home or Camp with Early Warning Systems, Part 2 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Im not sure when I picked up the odd habit of looking over my shoulder and, in general, being paranoid about my surroundings, but I did. My wife tells me I look scary, even when Im totally relaxed and on vacation in Disney World. So be it. Thats my lot in life and she married me anyway. When I think of scenarios in which my home and family could be in jeopardy, you can bet Ive researched plenty of home security plans, gear, and, yes, weaponry. My paranoia will pay off someday.

If you havent yet read the post titled, Protecting Your Home or Camp with Early Warning Systems, Part 1, stop and read it now. Its a short list of cheap, low-tech, and simple methods to create as much noise as possible when your home or property is accessed by an intruder. In this article, you will see some of those systems illustrated with photos and a couple of additional tactics.

For the purposes of this post, no efforts have been made to camouflage anything in the pictures. In fact, the opposite has been done to make everything more visible. Now, these are all early warning systems that can be used around your campsite or home to warn you of the approach of animals or prowlers.

First, let me give you a couple of additional ideas for early warning systems and then we will review the strategies mentioned in Part 1.

Almost free early warning systems

Plastic bottles are everywhere. When was the last time you stepped on one? They make a lot of noise, especially if they are grouped together with duct tape. A group of plastic bottles spread in a path and covered with a dark cloth makes a good early warning system in the dark.

1:0 fr Graffiti: 6,7 Millionen Dollar Schadensersatz fr New Yorker 5Pointz Knstler "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In New York wurde ein spannendes Urteil zu Gunsten von Graffiti gefllt. Der Investor des legendren Graffiti Hotspots 5Pointz in Queens muss insgesamt 6,7 Millionen US-Dollar Schadensersatz an 21 Knstler zahlen, deren Murals 2013 ohne Vorankndigung wei bergemalt wurden. (CC BY 2.0) Forsaken Fotos Die Begrndung des Richters Block liegt in der Anerkennung der Graffiti als Kunst mit nennenswertem Rang. Die Werke seien vorstzlich und unrechtmig vom unbarmherzigen Investor zerstrt worden, zitiert Spiegel Online den Richter. 45 der 49 zerstrten Kunstwerke htte dabei anerkannten Rang gehabt. Wichtig fr das Urteil ist zudem sicherlich auch der Fakt, dass der Investor den Knstlern zuvor erlaubt hatte, sein Gebude zu bemalen. In einem Rechtsstreit um illegal entstandene Arbeiten wre das Urteil vermutlich anders ausgefallen. (CC BY 2.0) Adam Michaels Dem Urteil voran gegangen war ein mehrjhriger Rechtsstreit. Der Investor sah sich im Recht die Bilder ohne Ankndigung und Rcksprache auszulschen, da ihm Grundstck und Gebude gehrten. 2014 lie er das Gebude abreisen, um das Areal neu zu bebauen.

Greenland & Antarctic Melting Ice Sheets Increasing Sea Level Rise "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Two feet of rise this century is very significant

Satellites show warming is accelerating sea level rise

From an Article by Seth Borenstein, Associated Press, February 12, 2018

WASHINGTON (AP) Melting ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are speeding up the already fast pace of sea level rise, new satellite research shows.

At the current rate, the worlds oceans on average will be at least 2 feet (61 centimeters) higher by the end of the century compared to today, according to researchers who published in Mondays Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences.

Sea level rise is caused by warming of the ocean and melting from glaciers and ice sheets. The research, based on 25 years of satellite data, shows that pace has quickened, mainly from the melting of massive ice sheets. It confirms scientists computer simulations and is in line with predictions from the United Nations, which releases regular climate change reports.

Its a big deal because the projected sea level rise is a conservative estimate and it is likely to be higher, said lead author Steve Nerem of the University of Colorado.

Outside scientists said even small changes in sea levels can lead to flooding and erosion.

Any flooding concerns that coastal communities have for 2100 may occur over the next few decades, Oregon State University coastal flooding expert Katy Serafin said in an email.

Of the 3 inches (7.5 centimeters) of sea level rise in the past quarter century, about 55 percent is from warmer water expanding, and the rest is from melting ice.

But the process is accelerating, and more than three-quarters of that acceleration since 1993 is due to melting ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, the study shows.

Like weather and climate, there are two factors in sea level rise: year-to-year small rises and falls that are caused by natural events and larger long-term rising trends that are linked to man-made climate change. Nerems team removed the natural effects of the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption that temporarily chilled Earth and the climate phenomena El Nino and La Nina, and found the accelerating trend.

Sea level rise, more than temperature, is a better gauge of climate change in action, said Anny Cazenave, director of Earth scienc...

Australia - Bega Valley targeted in NSW Labor's Fluoridation Bill "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

Anti-fluoride groups have been placed in the crosshairs of potential State Parliament legislation that aims to give additional powers to the NSW Health Minister.
Shadow health spokesman Walt Secord introduced legislation on Tuesday, February 13, which, if passed, would give the minister additional powers to direct local councils and water authorities to add fluoride to their drinking water supply.
Mr Secord said the legislation would create tough new fluoride laws to over-ride the anti-fluoride movement, which is surfacing in NSW.
He cites Bega Valley as one of the areas where a vocal minority are using tactics similar to the anti-vaxxer movement.

When the Sex Pistols Played at the Chelmsford Top Security Prison: Hear Vintage Tracks from the 1976 Gig "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Serious fans of live recordings well know that such productions are usually doctored before they reach the masses, with effects added to sweeten the mix, recording errors corrected, instruments and crowd noise overdubbed, tracks rearranged, and performances from different nights combined. Its a common practice and shouldnt alarm anyone expecting absolute documentary fidelity. If you couldnt make the show to experience the band firsthand, theyd at least like you to hear them at their best. (Who could resist the opportunity to revise, say, a public speaking gig after the fact?)

When record companies are involved, every effort can go into making a saleable product, but heavy editing usually doesnt happen to taped bootlegs. One notable exception happens to come from an exceptional gig, when the Sex Pistols followed Johnny Cash's example and played the Chelmsford Top Security Prison during their first major tour of England in 1976 for an audience of 500 prisoners. Partly due to a serious recording issuethe near total failure to capture original bassist Glen Matlockand partly to a confused idea of what would make for a worthy release, writes Ned Raggett at Allmusic, the bands soundman Dave Goodman decided to make several alterations to the recording.




These changes, in turn, gave rise to a mythology surrounding the show, raising its reputation to the levels of chaos for which the Pistols are renowned. That reputation itself largely revolves around Sid Vicious later onstage antics, and is at times inflated. The Pistols could be a great live bandSteve Jones, Paul Cook, and Matlock were all more than capable musicians, and Johnny Rotten was a perfect punk spectacle all his own. But the elements didnt always come together amidst the band's unrehearsed disorder.

There were (are) a few notations about the role Henry Kissinger is playing in the current world situation in BFs latest article (related Kp blog post), which Ive block quoted below.

Celebrate Freedom ~ Saint Germaine "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Therese Z here: This channelled message from Saint Germaine is not new. {I am advised to ask for reader discretion with all channelled material} He gave us this message through the channel Linda Dillon in July of 2016. However on this day when Love is celebrated in many places on Gaia I find that his message of the freedom that is our birthright and will very soon be our reality can be good to be reminded of. The darkened text is my input to St Germaines words.

Today on our Saturday conference call, St. Germaine came in and reminded usyou have never relinquished that dreamthat tyranny would be quashed, that greed and lust and abuse of power would be eliminated, and that all would walk in the sunlight and the moonlight of freedom.

Transcript of this video from July 2nd 2016

Greetings, I am St. Germaine. I am St. Germaine, Keeper of the I AM, Keeper of the Violet Flame, and yes dearest Joe, keeper of the tequila although I do not recall ever having that substance during the time I have walked the planet. But many times, my beloved friends, we have sat and we have shared a cup of wine, mead, tea, bread, soup, it mattered not, for the joy came in simply sitting together, walking together, laughing together, sharing our common understanding and our common goal which, in fact, has never changed.

And yes, I am honored to come to you during this time of independence of this entire continent of North America because that has been my call, the Freedom Call that I have beckoned to many to come and join me in. Yes, it is a time of great transformation and we are puzzled by those who say, Nothing is happening, nothing is changing. We would suggest that you open your eyes and look around for never have there been more signals, more clarity, greater signs in terms of what is transpiring upon this beloved planet, this beloved Earth.

People are awakeningthat is how we put it in the simplest of terms. And hundreds of years ago people of this United States have awakened and they have said, We wish to run our own ship. Now, that is not to suggest that tyranny ended or that selfishness and control and abuse of power came to a conclus...

Blockchain Job Market Ripe for the Tech Savvy "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

There was a lot of talk in 2017 about making big money in cryptocurrency but for the next generation looking at crypto markets, the money may be in Blockchain related jobs.

Demand for crypto workers is huge

While speculators and investors may be at odds about the future of digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum what everyone seems to agree on is that the underlying Blockchain technology is going to be a game changer across the board.

Young, tech-savvy job seekers looking at the crypto job market should be enthused by the amount of opportunity to get into what is potentially the career slot of the future. As the industry is still in its infancy demand is high and competition is low for crypto-related jobs.

A quick search on Monster.com for positions with the keyword Blockchain in the title got 748 hits while the job site Indeed reported an increase of 621% in job listings that contained the keywords Blockchain, Bitcoin or cryptocurrency in since November 2015.

International Business Machines (IBM) alone has 362 job offerings posted on Monster.com tagged with the keyword Blockchain. Other well-known names such as Uber, Capitol One, GIECO, and eBay are also on the search for applicants with crypto skill sets.

As the technology develops job opportunities will increase

Blockchain related jobs involving every aspect of utilizing the technology from design and engineering through to sales and marketing are already searching for applicants.

As the technology develops jobs not yet defined will evolve and those who already have a working knowledge of the technology will benefit. These jobs maybe managing currencies already in existence, creating new ones (ICOs) or implementing the blockchain into other industries such as logistics.

Many of the people filling these positions will be transitioning from related fields. Others may come from having a private interest in trading cryptocurrencies or running their own mining operations but some will have come from university programs developing in schools around the world. Universities in the US such as UC Berkeley, MIT, and Cornell all have blockchain programs in development and classes that regularly fill their largest lecture halls.

cryptocurrency and blockchain markets could eventually be a $10-trillion business. The engineers and other business leaders building that market will likely get their fair share of that value themselves.

Cardano Price Technical Analysis ADA/USD Eyeing Further Gains "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • ADA price is forming a major support base near the $0.3100 level against the US Dollar (tethered).
  • The ADA/USD pair is currently moving above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $0.3630 on the hourly chart (data feed via Bittrex).
  • The pair may gain upside momentum towards $0.4000 if the recent trend line break is true.

Cardano price is placed nicely in a positive zone against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ADA/USD could gain upside momentum towards $0.4000 in the near term.

Cardano Price Trend

There were many tests recently of the $0.3000 support in ADA price against the US Dollar. However, sellers were not able to move the price below the $0.3000 support. It seems like a decent support base is forming around the $0.3000 and $0.3100 levels. As long as the price is above the $0.3000 level, it could rise in the near term. At present, the price is attempting to settle above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.4380 high to $0.3100 swing low.

Moreover, the ADA/USD pair is currently moving above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $0.3630 on the hourly chart. If the pair succeeds in settling above $0.3700, there could be further upsides toward $0.4000. An intermediate resistance is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $0.4380 high to $0.3100 swing low. Above the mentioned $0.4000, the price could even test the last swing high of $0.4380, which is a crucial resistance level.

Cardano Price Technical Analysis ADA USD

The overall price action is positive above the $0.3000 support. Below $0.3000, the price could move into the bearish zone. On the upside, the price may struggle to gain substantial momentum above the $0.4000 level.

Hourly MACD The MACD for ADA/USD is slightly gaining pace in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI The RSI for ADA/USD has just moved above the 50 level.

Major Support Level $0.3000

This needs to be integrated with those water harvesting ponds with nets.  The ponds can be a simple cast bowl partially filled with sand and holding vertical canes  suspending a mono - filament net.   This draws dew out of the atmosphere at night and the water drops into the sand to be protected.
 
The surplus moisture can then be distributed into the surround while a planting can grow in the cast pond.  As this matures and acreage expands it will become possible to grow  an adjacent tree as well to increase the soil's holding capacity.

In that way we produce an intact shallow water table able to support a complete agricultural system.  What makes it really work is that all moisture drawn from the atmosphere is recycled over and over again as this tech advances into the desert.
.
 
These are incredible examples of sustainable agriculture systems that are created by harmonizing with the natural patterning effects of wind and sand.

By enhancing the edge effect of pressure between different medias, in this case, wind and sand, the extension pattern creates the dish form that then shelters the plantings at the lowest point. It shelters them from the wind itself and from the extended shade in the lower position closer the water table. Combined this reduces evaporation, extends productivity, and reduces input requirements.

These systems can be permanent with no reduction in fertility if the scale and order of the appropriate pattern size....

STAFF at Oxfams Bolton shop remained tight-lipped yesterday, refusing to comment on the scandal engulfing the charity.

One staff member at the shop in Blackburn Road said that they had been advised not to comment.

Bitcoin Marketplace Paxful Builds School For Students in Rwanda "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Paxful, the peer-to-peer bitcoin marketplace that enables its users to purchase and sell bitcoin instantly, has funded the construction of a school for young students in Rwanda.

Located in Kasebigege Village in the Bugesera District of Rwanda, Paxfuls bitcoin-funded school will serve children aged from 3 to 6 in a town with over 7,500 residents. The school has three classrooms, four restrooms, irrigation system, and a 35,000-liter water tank, providing a stable source of water supply for both the students and local residents.

By contributing $50,000 in bitcoin, Paxful contributed to the Education is Life project and Water Well project, building schools and providing a better ecosystem in partnership with Zam Zam, a non-profit organization that focuses on helping students and families in Afghanistan, Gaza, and Rwanda.

Paxful cares about corporate responsibility, and they believe that positive things can happen through Bitcoin. The Education is Life project is not only a model for what can be built with Bitcoin, but is a model for how we create and sustain successful corporate partnerships, said the Zam Zam team.

Last month, CNBC featured a documentary covering the efforts of the Paxful team building a school in Rwanda using bitcoin as the primary source of funds. The Paxful team intends to fund more schools and infrastructures in Africa in the future, with donations raised from the cryptocurrency community with bitcoin.

One of our key goals is to bring financial inclusion to the underbanked, via bitcoin. #BuiltwithBitcoin is the next logical step. Now we are not only helping those in emerging economies meet their day-to-day financial needs; through our work with Zam Zam, we are also making a real and lasting difference in their communities. We hope that others in the cryptocurrency scene will join this important venture, said Ray Youssef, Paxful CEO and co-founder.

Last year, in December 2017, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin expressed his concerns over the valuation of the cryptocurrency market and whether the community has done enough t...

Tasmanian election nominations close "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

Nominations were announced today for the Tasmanian election. 109 candidates have nominated, with six parties running candidates.

This is a drop from 126 candidates running 2014, but it is still more candidates than ran in 2010 or 2006.

Labor, Liberal and the Greens are running full tickets across all five seats. Labor is actually running a sixth candidate in Lyons.

The Jacqui Lambie Network (JLN) is running 12 candidates across three electorates, while the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers (SFF) party is running 11 across four electorates, and Tasmanians 4 Tasmania are running 4 candidates across Braddon and Denison. The Shooters are running multi-candidate tickets in Braddon and Lyons, but only running a single candidate in Denison and Franklin.

There are also six ungrouped independents running in three electorates.

The Palmer United Party and the Nationals ran candidates in 2014, but are not running this time (although you could argue that the JLN is the successor-party to PUP in Tasmania).

Denison and Franklin are shaping up as simple Labor-Liberal-Greens contests, with only four other candidates between the two electorates. They are joined by substantial JLN and SFF teams in Braddon and Lyons. JLN is running a ticket of four in Bass, but theres no Shooters candidates.

Ive collated the full list of candidates, which you can download here.

As usual, Ive coded the gender of candidates. Of the parties running large numbers of candidates, Labor and the Greens are running more women than men: 15 out of 26 Labor candidates and 13 out of 25 Greens candidates are women. Just nine out of 25 Liberal candidates are women (36%), and the balance is even more skewed for the Jacqui Lambie Network (3 out of 12) and the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers (2 out of 9).

All candidate names have now been updated on the seat guides, which you can read here.

Antony Green has also blogged about the candidate announcement, with additional historical information.

Kimba or Wallerberdina Station could be stuck with Stranded Radioactive Trash "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

Noel Wauchope, https://cooberpedytimes.com/news-paper/  , 8 Feb 18 I am feeling quite uneasy about the over-confident tone of the latest statement about the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility.The General Manager of the National Radioactive Waste Management Taskforce Bruce McCleary says:

We have the right experts and the right staff in place to advance this project through various decision points this year.

Just who are these right experts, and what is their agenda?

We, the public, have been given to understand that this radioactive waste facility is all about promoting medicine, by storing medical wastes. Medical radioactive wastes are almost entirely are classified as low level especially as, for the vast majority, their radioactive half-lives are so short a matter of hours or a few days. It stands to reason that these wastes dont need to be transported about 3200 Km across the continent.

Now we learn that the South Australian dump site will temporarily store our intermediate level radioactive waste. This sounds awfully like the reprocessed nuclear wastes that are returning to the Lucas Heights nuclear reactor site from France, and England. The vitrified waste we received back from France has a radioactivity over one Billion Becquerels per gram (one GigaBq/gr).

Ripple Price Technical Analysis Can XRP/USD Gain Upside Momentum? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price is finding strong buying interest near the $0.9100 level against the US dollar.
  • Buyers are making an attempt to push the price above a bearish trend line at $0.9550 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from SimpleFx).
  • The pair could accelerate higher once there is a close above the $0.9800 resistance in the near term.

Ripple price is following a bullish path against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD should move above the $0.9800 resistance to gain upside momentum.

Ripple Price Rise

There was a positive development in Ripple price from the $0.9000 swing low against the US Dollar. The price tested the $0.9100 and $0.9000 support levels on a couple of occasions. However, sellers failed to push the price below $0.9000, which prompted an upside move. It seems like there is a major support base forming above $0.9000, which could increase bullish pressure in the near term.

Earlier, there was a dip below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.8398 low to $1.0268 high. However, the downside move was limited by $0.9100. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.8398 low to $1.0268 high also acted as a support. An upside move in underway, and the XRP/USD pair is making an attempt to push the price above a bearish trend line at $0.9550 on the hourly chart. Should there be a close above $0.9600 and $0.9800, the price could move above $1.0000.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

Above $1.0000, it has to break the $1.0265 high to rise further. The overall bias is positive as long as the price is above the $0.9100 and $0.9000 support levels.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for XRP/USD is mostly flat with a few bearish signs.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for XRP/USD has just moved below the 50 level.

Major Support Level $0.9200

American Indian College Fund Early Childhood Initiatives Spur International Self-Determination Movement as Detailed in New Report "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Published February 14, 2018

DENVER  Preparing children for college starts at birth. But the American Indian College Fund realized that a one-size-fits-all approach to education does not work for Native children. Six years ago, the College Fund set out to strengthen systems of care and learning for Native children by expanding opportunities for their families to consider college as a pathway to thriving communities, starting from birth to career, by incorporating the local culture into education. Today the College Fund released a landmark report detailing its findings from the work that has inspired an international movement, titled Tribal College and University Childhood Education Initiatives: Strengthening Systems of Care and Learning with Native Communities from Birth to Career.

Thanks to the College Funds Tribal College and University (TCU) Early Childhood Education Initiatives, entire Native communities are determining and providing place-based, culturally appropriate education for their young children to ensure their academic and social success at a foundational age.

The new report details how the College Fund built systems of early childhood care and learning founded on sustainable structures and implemented them at seven TCUs (accredited higher education institutions located on or near Indian reservations serving Native communities). Through the College Funds initiatives to date, 3,975 children and 2,398 families have benefited, while 1,185 teachers received training and professional development opportunities to better serve their communities.

The report shares early childhood education models that can be modified to meet specific community needs. It also includes information about growing partnerships with local and external education organizations, foundations, and professional organizations; engaging parents and families in curriculum development; utilizing the knowledge and experience of community elders; pursuing program excellence; documenting work and sharing findings to improve the work for sustainabilit...

Natalie Cromb The case for treaty "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

Natalie Cromb is a Gamilaraay writer and social justice advocate who lives in Sydney.

One of the foundational principles of a treaty in Australia would need to be self-determination. Without communities in the driving seat of their futures, the gap will continue to widen.

It is clear that, despite the symbolic Stolen Generations apology
and the campaign for constitutional recognition, structural change needs to occur to ensure Indigenous interests are at the forefront of governmental policies affecting Indigenous people.
And the best means with which to ensure that the above structures can occur is through a treaty where principles of sovereignty, self-determination, right to language and culture, and land rights can be enshrined and protected.

I support treaty. I hope non-Indigenous Australians join calls for treaties
so that we can approach the future as a united and mature nation,
well aware of our past and committed never to repeat it.

Drug Companies Responsible for Severe Environmental Pollution "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

Environmental pollution is a tremendous concern, and the sources of toxic pollution are many. One source that has managed to skirt below the radar is the drug industry.1,2,3,4 In 2016, the nonprofit foundation Changing Markets issued a report on Impacts of Pharmaceutical Pollution on Communities and Environment in India,5 on behalf of Nordea Asset Management, a major investment firm in Sweden.

According to this report, the severe water pollution problem in India can be, to a significant extent, traced back to the generic drug industry. Between 2010 and 2015, the number of contaminated waterways in India more than doubled, and by 2015, more than half of the nations rivers were polluted. Indias low cost of manufacturing has lured a number of drug companies to set up shop, congregating in the city of Hyderabad and along the Andhra Pradesh coastline.

According to a recent economic survey by the Finance Ministry of India, Hyderabads drug industry accounts for nearly half of the countrys drug exports.6 Outsourcing of production to the emerging markets, where labor is cheap, workforces skilled and environmental standards lax, has now become second nature for the pharmaceutical majors, many of which are based in the United States and Europe, the report noted.

The report also stressed that theres a disturbing lack of transparency within the drug industry about the origin of active ingredients and the finished drugs, and that while regulators who could easily demand greater transparency from the drug industry, have so far shied away from taking action.

Surprising Sources of Air Pollution "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

Air pollution is an insidious problem that doesn't recognize borders and travels thousands of miles. In fact, Americans are producing less pollution but experiencing greater amounts of smog on the West Coast, the result of pollutants originating in Asian countries.1 In 1991, the U.S. and Canada entered into an agreement to address transboundary air pollution that led to a reduction in the production of acid rain.2

A collaboration of more than 40 researchers looking at data from 130 countries has called air pollution the "largest environmental cause of disease and premature death in the world today."3 Nine million premature deaths were attributed to air pollution in 2015 16 percent of all deaths worldwide and three times more than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. Fine particulate matter is the most studied type of air pollution and refers to particles smaller than 2.5 micrometers in diameter.

Particles this size are small enough to pass through your lung tissue and enter your bloodstream, triggering chronic inflammation and chronic disease. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 92 percent of the world's population is breathing polluted air.4 Air quality measurements were based on outdoor sources from transportation vehicles, industrial activity, coal powered plants and burning household fuel.

However, while the numbers are considerable, they may be conservative as WHO did not factor ozone or nitrogen oxides, which are also known air pollutants.5 Emissions of nitrogen oxides combine with oxygen and sunlight to break down into ozone. Levels of this air pollutant has tripled since 1990.6 Scientists have identified a surprising source of nitrogen oxides pollution that contributes a greater number of fine particle pollution than previously anticipated.

Dog Almost Dies From Human Hair Dye What Does That Tell You? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

Just because a product is sold over-the-counter in stores, it does not mean its safe. There are nearly 13,000 chemicals found in personal care products sold in the U.S., and only 10 percent have been tested for safety. To compound the problem, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has the ability to regulate personal care products only after a product has demonstrated harm.1

Additionally, the FDA has handed over the responsibility of ensuring public safety to manufacturers whose financial health is dependent upon selling their products, and those manufacturers are not legally responsible to report adverse effects to the FDA.2 What this means is that while you may be health conscious, body lotions, deodorants, soaps or shampoos you use may have harmful chemicals even if the product is labeled nontoxic and safe.

The average American woman uses 12 personal care products daily, containing an average of 168 chemicals.3 Men are exposed to nearly half that amount, but teens, who average 17 personal care products a day, are exposed to an even greater number.

This everyday exposure to toxic chemicals has been associated with a number of health conditions, including early ovarian dysfunction and menopause that may lead to early development of heart disease and osteoporosis. While personal care products may be hazardous for you, using these products on your pet may have lethal consequences.

Indias nuclear power programme was always intended to be a nuclear weapons programme too "IndyWatch Feed Allaunews"

The Nation 11th Feb 2018, Indian army chief calls our strategic and tactical nuclear capability `a bluff. His view may be rooted in Indias own bitter enrichment experience (1980-1985).

Ramana points out during initial operations that Indias enrichment plant `had frequent breakdown as a result of corrosion  and failure of parts. `Many leaders of Indian Department of Atomic  Energy held that uranium enrichment was very difficult and were skeptical of Pakistani claims that they had succeeded in enriching uranium to weapons grade levels.

From day one, Indias nuclear programme has been dual-use oriented. Nehru never ruled out the nuclear option for India . He wrote to Homi Bhabha `Apart from building power stations and developing electricity there is always a built-in advantage of defence use [of nuclear enrichment] if the need should arise. According to Srinivasan, former head of Indian Atomic Energy Commission, `Nuclear technology was developed by a country for its own benefit, whether for peaceful purposes or military applications.

I dont believe a modern treaty process will get any further than the National Aboriginal Conference (NAC) did, unless Sovereign First Nations declare sovereign independence through UDIs and force decolonisation through a united front.

US Olympic Luge Team Welcomes Bitcoin Donations "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

As Olympians in Pyeongchang, Korea perform to huge audiences in the popular events of skying, snowboarding and hockey. Less popular US lugers have turned to Bitcoin to fuel their sleds.

Bitcoin funds US luge team

The USA Luge Foundation began campaigning for donations of Bitcoin using Medium since December of 2017. The team is the first Olympic group to set up its own Bitcoin wallet to accept donations.

USA luge marketing director and former double silver medalists Gary Sheer said that matching Bitcoin to the US luge endowment fund is a natural fit;

You know, we hear a lot of jokes about lugers being crazy, and people dont know why we do it. But luge is something that gets into your blood and transforms your life and the Bitcoiners weve met know exactly what its like to be all in on something that the world doesnt appreciate yet. Weve looked at Bitcoin hard, and it is definitely a risk-reward we understand and are eager to take.

Although no Olympic team is allowed to have any type of advertising on their uniforms or equipment during the games the team has promised to promote the cryptocurrency in up and coming competitions.

The team has laid out a rewards schedule depending on how much Bitcoin they raise in the future.

  • 5 BTC Bitcoins logo will appear on team hats and memorabilia hats.
  • 10 BTC Above, including Bitcoin logo sewn onto all luge team outerwear for the
  • 2018 season (excluding the Winter Olympics).
  • 25 BTC All of the above, including Bitcoin logo of sleds for the next two seasons.
  • 50 BTC All of the above, with Bitcoin logo on sleds for next four seasons.
  • 100 BTC All the above including Bitcoin logo on team skin suits for four years (excluding Olympics).

For 21 million the team promised to find Satoshi and get him on a sled 21 million is the finite number of Bitcoins.

Cash only at Olympic Village

Being that South Korea is a major hub of cryptocurrency trading and the Olympics an international event one would expect vendors and facilities to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies during the events.

That is not the case though. According to Forbes there is only one place to spend your Bitcoin, a single ski rental shop at the Olympic Village. Many were expecting vendors to take up the platform Coinduck which allows payment in Etheru...

Asian Altcoin Trading Roundup: the top crypto is Ethereum Classic "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

FOMO Moments

Midweek trading is looking good from an Asian perspective as most cryptocurrencies have shown positive price action this morning. Bitcoin is still holding steady, up around 1.5% at $8,840, and this has had a positive influence on a lot of the altcoins. A couple are showing very strong growth today and those are Ethereum Classic and Litecoin

Looking at the Coinmarketcap charts shows that ETC is currently on a flyer, up 24% from this time yesterday. The Ethereum forked coin is trading at $35.6 at the time of writing, up from $28.50 24 hours ago. Over the past week is has shown solid growth of almost 100% from $17.8 on Wednesday last week. ETC is heading back towards its all-time high of $47 on December 21.

ethereum classic

As with the momentum on most altcoins recently it is all happening in South Korea. Almost 40% of the trade is in KRW on Upbit, Bithumb and Coinone. ETC has a total market cap of $3.5 billion with $1.37 billion traded in the past 24 hours, it is ranked at 14th and climbing. Ethereum Classic has been far less volatile that other cryptocurrencies in recent weeks.

The only other altcoin with a double digit movement is Litecoin which is up 14%. LTC has been on a downward slide since its $370 high on December 19, possibly coinciding with founder Charlie Lee selling his entire stash. Renewed momentum will be driven by the upcoming Litecoin Cash fork which is expected early next week.

Kitten Gets Present From Her Vet And Never Lets Go Of It Again "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Whether we admit it or not, many of us remember a favorite stuffed toy or security blanket we carried around as children. These special objects may have been a bit beaten and worn, but they helped us get through the challenges that came with growing up.

For Belle the cat, comfort comes in the form of a teeny tiny pillow.

Credit: Katie Gaber

In May 2017, a woman named Katie Gaber adopted Belle, who left her litter to join her new family in North Dakota. From the moment Gaber met the 8-week-old kitten, she noticed something oddly endearing about her adoptive pet Belle was unusually clingy.

We knew she was the cat for us when she clung to us, not wanting us to let her go, Gaber told The Dodo.

Credit: Katie Gaber

As Belle settled into her home, it became clear that her new cat brother, 3-year-old Jazzy, would tolerate her presence, but was not terribly interested in snuggling with the spunky kitten. Belle received plenty of love and affection from her family, but still, something was missing.

That is, until the little kittens first trip to the vet.

Belle didnt seem particularly excited to visit the doctors office, especially to get spayed. But while the experience may have been a difficult one, Belle received something precious that day and it turned out to be the perfect thing to make her feel better.

Altcoin Analysis: NEO, EOS, LTC, NEM and Lumens "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Besides Lumens, other high cap altcoins under our radar were bearish and moving within February 12 high lows.

Will there be replication of Lumens break above today? Well, it depends on if these stochastic buy signals are reflective of underlying buy pressures that could actually lift prices past resistance levels from which the 20 period MA plays a big role.

For now, I recommend buying Lumens in small proportions and spreading out entries until after there is a close above $0.50 in the coming sessions-assuming that happens today.

Lets have a look at these charts:

XLM/USD (Lumens)

alt coin Lumens Technical analysisXLMUSD Daily Chart for February 14, 2018

After periods of higher highs and consolidation, Lumens prices are now trading above our bullish trigger line of 40.40.

Of course, we can begin looking for long entry signals in lower time frames but as we have said time and time again, the middle BB is a significant resistance line that is worth waiting for a close below or rejection.

Those prices will be around $0.50 or the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement line and when that happens, I will recommend fine tuning longs in the 4HR chart as we bulls aim for $0.70 in the short term and $1 in the medium term.

Police Dog Finds Saddest Thing Hidden Inside Storage Container "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Searching through a recent mail delivery for suspicious materials last week, a canine police officer in Mexico sniffed out a large plastic box and ended up saving a life in the process.

Credit: Facebook/Polica Federal de Mxico

Cutting through the duct tape that sealed the box shut, police officers opened the box to find a Bengal tiger cub peering up at them from a bed of shredded newspaper.

It was clear the 2-month-old tiger had been sedated for transit, and his only form of ventilation was a few small holes on the side of the container. He had no food or water.

[The animal] was intended to be illegally transferred under these poor conditions, police said on Facebook. This is an endangered species, due to illegal hunting for their skin. We protect life in all its manifestations.

According to the police department, the tiger was intended to be mailed across Mexico from the western state of Jalisco to the central state of Queretaro. Investigators said the ownership papers found with the tiger were in order, but the way he was transported via express mail is a clear form of animal mistreatment.

The tiger was taken to the Wildlife Rescue Directorate of the Municipality of Tlajomulco de Zuniga, where he is being treated for dehydration. Despite being underweight, officials said, the cub appears to be fairly healthy.

Prashant Khetan, chief executive officer for Born Free USA, said the manner the cub was transported in is worse than usual shipping methods for bi...

US DESPERATE FOR WW3 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Cabal running the USA into the ground, now utterly DESPERATE to start WW3 so they can blame the imminent COLLAPSE on the War....

Never realising we WILL blame them. We will drag them into the streets, burn their Mansions, and then hang them from their own trees. The Wall Street "Money Junkies" will be hunted down and shot. The Politicians will ALL meet the SAME FATE.  We will rebuild from scratch, but with new safeguards built in. Like TERM LIMITS. Like no more Private Central Banks- EVER. Written in Constitutional Amendment form. Like making " Corruption In Office" a Capitol Offense. Like making Police PERSONALLY LIABLE for wrongdoing. Like mandating all Judges PERSONALLY liable for misdeeds, as with Politicians. I think these are a good start.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH/USD to Rise Short-term "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is slowly moving higher and is currently trading above $830 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bullish trend line forming with support at $832 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair is likely to grind higher and it could even trade above the $860 resistance in the near term.

Ethereum price is slightly bullish against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is eyeing further gains with supports on the downside at $832 and $825.

Ethereum Price Support

There was a fresh downside wave in ETH price from the $865 high against the US Dollar. The price traded lower and broke the $850 and $840 levels. It traded as low as $814 where buyers prevented further declines. An upside wave was initiated and the price was able to move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $865.19 high to $814.03 low.

On the downside, there is a major bullish trend line forming with support at $832 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is likely to follow the trend line and move above $840. An immediate resistance is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $865.19 high to $814.03 low. However, the price is likely to move higher and it may soon break the $850 resistance, and settle above the 100 hourly simple moving average. The most important resistance on the upside is at $865. It is a pivot level for a move towards $890.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

In the short term, the price is likely to move higher towards $865. Any further gains would depend on how sellers react when the price test the $865 level.

Hourly MACD The MACD is currently showing a few bullish sign, but it is lacking upside momentum.

Hourly RSI The RSI has just moved above the 50 level, which is a positive sign.

Major Support Level $830

Major Resistance Level $865

8 Steps to Survive Anything "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

You never know when disaster will strike, so you must be prepared for every eventuality. Check out this article for 8 steps to survive anything.

Basic Survival Knowledge

As a young Airman teaching students at the U.S. Air Force Survival School, I was posed a riddle by one of my officer students.  He said to me, Imagine you are lost in the woods, it's freezing cold, hypothermia is setting in, and you come across a cabin in the middle of nowhere. You enter the cabin and there is a lantern, fully functional and ready to go.  There is also a wood-burning stove and a stone fireplace with paper and kindling.  What do you light first?  I replied, I would light the fireplace.  A large smile spread across his space and he said, Nope, you light the match first!  Then it was my turn to smile and reply, But sir, we dont use matches!  And I also reiterated that as an Air Force Survival Instructor, we NEVER became lost.

It was refreshing to see that the lieutenant was thinking about survival matters and possible scenarios one might encounter. Over the course of nearly two decades, instructing various students all around the world, I encountered many people who had never camped, never hiked, and didnt know the first thing about what to do in a survival situation.  

As a professional instructor, it brought me great satisfaction to see those same people less than two weeks later leave with the confidence to survive on the basic skills they had learned.  The majority of the students that go through the Air Force Survival School MUST have this knowledge to accomplish their mission and continue in their chosen field. This article will be a short introduction to the basics of survival that could save your life.

1. Increase your will to survive

First and foremost is the Will to Survive, W2S.  You can have nearly every tool at your disposal and perish because you gave up, or you can have next to nothing and refuse to die through sheer force...

View Adds Or Mine Cryptocurrency, Salon Gives You The Choice "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Deal with ads and pop-ups or become a corporate crypto-mining minion. These will be your choices from now on when you go to Salons website.

Add free for miners

In a bid to replace revenue lost from the number of browsers who have enabled ad-blocking programs Salon will now give you a choice, turn off your ad-blocking software or suppress ads.

By choosing the latter option viewers wont be bothered by ads but will hand over part of their computers processing  power so that Salon can mine the cryptocurrency Monero using the program Coinhive.

Like many sites that depend on add revenue, Salon has felt the pinch of ad-blocking software in their money bag.

Like most media sites, ad-blockers cut deeply into our revenue and create a more one-sided relationship between reader and publisher,

Salons team wrote in a note addressing the new program.

If you chose to allow Salon to mine with your computer that agreement lasts for 24 hours and will then prompt you again on your next visit to their site. Critics though have raised concerns about recent criminal activity associated with Monero and hacks that have involved Coinhive.

Through no fault of its developers Monero has become the currency of choice for some criminals who dropped Bitcoin during its meteroic rise during 2017. While the concpet behind Coinhive is potentially beneficial for companies using it openly the software often makes the news as hackers use the program to mine cryptocurrency on computers of the unsuspecting.

Salon CEO Jordan Hoffner pushes those concerns aside saying that new technologies are often abused by criminals in their early stages but once adapted by the mainstream those activities abate.

These things will straighten themselves out over time. I was there at the time of online video and online piracy. They straightened themselves out over time. Thats what history has suggested,

Salon CEO Jordan Hoffner.

Is the candle worth the game?

The question to be asked though; is it worth alienating a portion of your readership for such a pittance? Based on Coinhives own predictions and Salons visitor numbers the site would only earn about $1,000 per month if every one of their 13 million monthly viewers decides to take the mining option.

For Hoffner though its about letting the pas...

Dog Hates Getting His Nails Clipped, So His Dad Comes Up With An Idea "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This little dog named Oliver is lucky to have a dad like Patrick Peifer. Since rescuing Oliver from a bad situation last year, Peifer, along with his wife and kids, have gone above and beyond to make their pup feel loved.

We're just happy to have him, Patrick told The Dodo. He's been a wonderful addition to our family.

It's fair to say Oliver has it good.

Credit: Patrick Peifer

Like any devoted dog owners, Patrick and his family wouldn't ever want to make Oliver upset or uncomfortable. But when it came to giving his nails a routine trim, doing so seemed unavoidable. The first time Patrick tried, it turned into an ordeal for everyone involved.

"It required one person to hold him still, and one person to do the clipping," he said. "Oliver really does not like being physically held against his will, so it was not that easy."

So when it recently came time to give Oliver another trim, Patrick got creative.

Credit: Twitter/Kendal Peifer

"I knew that I would need something that would limit his mobility without being physically restrained by another human," Patrick said.

After finding some products on the market to be overpriced, Patrick figured he could whip up one himself. A lady's handbag seemed like the perfect thing to start with, so he asked his wife for advice. (Wisely, she promptly directed him away from the contents of her own closet.)

"She suggested I look for one at the Goodwill," Patrick said. "I paid $8 for it. Using some of my wife's sewing equipment, I removed some stitching and then cut four holes for the legs, and one for his head with an X-Acto knife. I realized it would be easier to get him in the purse if I cut it down each side so that it could lay flat on the floor. I just stood him up on top of the flat, opened up the purse with his feet in the holes, and then grabbed the handles and lifted him up." 

Patrick describes his creation as "sort o...

Atrazine and its metabolite diaminochlorotriazine induced disruptions of sperm membranes that might impair sperm fertilization competence. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Reprod Toxicol. 2017 Jan ;67:15-25. Epub 2016 Nov 9. PMID: 27836535 Abstract Title:  Effect of the herbicide atrazine and its metabolite DACT on bovine sperm quality. Abstract:  Atrazine (ATZ), one of the most extensively used herbicides, is considered a ubiquitous environmental contaminant. ATZ is a known endocrine disruptor, and deleterious effects on reproductive function have been shown, even at low, ecologically relevant doses (0.1-3g/L). Once it enters the body, ATZ is metabolized to various metabolites, which are further detected in the urine, serum and tissues. In mammals, the major ATZ metabolite is diaminochlorotriazine (DACT). The current study focuses on direct effects of low doses of ATZ and DACT on bovine sperm isolated from ejaculates or epididymis compartments (head, body and tail). Sperm were incubated under capacitation conditions with or without 0.1-10M ATZ or 1-100M DACT. The integrity and functionality of sperm membranes (plasma, acrosomal and mitochondrial) were examined simultaneously by fluorescence staining at 0, 2 and 4h of incubation. Acrosome reaction (AR) was induced by Ca++ ionophore, after capacitation. The findings indicated that both ATZ and DACT adversely affect sperm, expressed by damaged sperm membranes. ATZ had a prominent effect on epididymal-tail sperm, expressed as disruptionof all examined membranes, mostly at low (0.1 or 1M) concentrations; pseudo-AR and that induced by Ca++ ionophore were both affected by exposure to 0.1M ATZ (P
