South Georgia declared rat-free in largest-ever rodent eradication program "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The remote island of South Georgia in the southern Atlantic Ocean has finally been declared free of invasive rats and mice in the worlds largest-ever rodent eradication effort. A monitoring survey last month, which included three trained sniffer dogs, found no trace of any rats or mice on the island, making the island officially rodent-free for the first time in over 200 years, the U.K.-based charity South Georgia Heritage Trust (SGHT) announced at a press conference in London on May 8. South Georgia Heritage Trust is delighted to declare that its Habitat Restoration Project is complete and that invasive rodents have been successfully eradicated from the island, Mike Richardson, chairman of the SGHT Habitat Restoration Project Steering Committee, said in a press release.

Trumps Bagman Cohen hat sich ber eine Tarnfirma namens ... "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Trumps Bagman Cohen hat sich ber eine Tarnfirma namens Essential Consultants LLC Geld zustecken lassen. Und wer hat da so Geld hinberwiesen?

Cohens account received roughly $500,000 in payments from Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg
Vekselberg? Trumps Dankbarkeit kannte keine Grenzen:
last month the Trump administration placed him on a list of sanctioned Russians for activities including election interference
Naja, technisch gesehen hat Trump nicht Unrecht :-)

Aber hey, nicht nur russische Oligarchen schicken Trumps Fixer Geld. Auch Novartis hat $400k gespendet.

Akt 1: Trump steigt aus dem Iran-Deal aus.

Akt 2: Im Iranischen Parlament znden Abgeordnete eine Papier-US-Fahne an, rufen "Death to America"

That went well!

Nun war dieser Deal nicht nur zwischen dem Iran und den USA, sondern zwischen Iran, USA und der EU. Daher ist das jetzt so eine Art Test dafr, ob die EU auch alleine stehen kann in solchen Fragen. Was natrlich unter verschrften Bedingungen ist, weil die USA gleichzeitig noch schrfere Sanktionen gegen den Iran angekndigt haben.

Es gibt ja eine schne Analyse von Cory Doctorow ber Trump, wo er meint, Trump sei sowas wie die Werbeindustrie ausgelegt auf "engagement maximization". Wenn der drei Optionen hat, macht er immer die, die am meisten Aufmerksamkeit fr ihn generiert. Wie die Werbemafia, die auch immer die Option whlt, die die Leute zu noch einem Klick oder einem Kommentar verleiten.
