ΚΑΛΗ ΜΕΡΑ ΕΛΛΑΔΑ - ΚΑΛΗ ΜΕΡΑ ΗΠΕΙΡΟΣ

Ύδρα... 

Η Ύδρα είναι νησί του Αργοσαρωνικού. Με το αυτό όνομα φέρεται η πρωτεύουσα και λιμένας της νήσου που αποτελεί ομώνυμο Δήμο, που αριθμούσε 2.719 κατοίκους στην απογραφή του 2001, οι οποίοι, λόγω του άγονου εδάφους, ασχολούνται κυρίως με την αλιεία και τον τουρισμό. Είναι εξαιρετικά γραφικό, αρχοντικό και κοσμοπολίτικο νησί.

Ιδιαίτερα δημοφιλής προορισμός για ξένους τουρίστες αλλα και Αθηναίους, δεδομένης της σχετικά μικρής της απόστασης από την πρωτεύουσα. Οφείλει το όνομά της στα άφθονα νερά, που ανάβλυζαν από τις πλούσιες πηγές που είχε κατά την αρχαιότητα. Έχει σημαντική ναυτική ιστορία και παράδοση. 
Αναπαλαιωμένα αρχοντικά, το παλιό γραφικό λιμάνι με τις πολεμίστρες και τα κανόνια, τα μουσεία, τα μοναστήρια, η ναυτική σχολή, συνθέτουν την εικόνα του νησιού, η οποία μάς μαρτυρεί την σημαντική ιστορική σημασία της. 
Κατά τον αγώνα της επανάστασης του 1821 η Ύδρα μαζί με τις Σπέτσες και τα Ψαρά έπαιξαν σημαντικό ρόλο, λόγω της μεγάλης ναυτικής δύναμης που διέθεταν. Στην Επανάσταση του 1821 η Ύδρα διέθετε 186 πλοία.
Μεγάλοι Πλοιοκτήτες, Ναυμάχοι του 1821, και πολιτικοί κατάγονται από το νησί, ανάμεσά τους οι Ανδρέας ΜιαούληςΚουντουριώτης,Κριεζής,Τσαμαδός,Σαχίνης,Τομπάζης κ.α.
 Αυτή η ναυτική παράδοση συνεχίζεται μέχρι σήμερα με έναν μικρό αλιευτικό στόλο και την Ακαδημία Εμποροπλοιάρχων, που άρχισε να λειτουργεί αμέσως μετά την επανάσταση του 1821 και είναι η αρχαιότερη σχολή εμποροπλοιάρχων της ανατολικής Μεσογείου· στις μέρες μας στεγάζεται στο αρχοντικό του Λάζαρου Τσαμαδού και της Μαρίας Δ. Σαχίνη και βοηθητικά κτίρια δωρεάς Αθ. Κουλούρα.
Η πόλη της Ύδρας, που είναι και η μοναδική πόλη του νησιού, έχει ανακηρυχθεί διατηρητέα και απαγορεύονται τα τροχοφόρα. 
Είναι απλωμένη σε δύο βραχώδεις λόφους και σφύζει από παραδοσιακά σπίτια με κεραμιδένιες σκεπές, έντονες μπλε πόρτες και παράθυρα. Η Ύδρα εδώ και δεκαετίες, είναι ένας από τους αγαπημένους προορισμούς Ελλήνων και ξένων επισκεπτών. Στο νησί υπάρχουν 300 εκκλησίες και πέντε μοναστήρια.
Η σημαντικότερη γιορτή σήμερα στην Ύδρα είναι τα Μιαούλεια, τα οποία είναι εκδηλώσεις, αφιερωμένες στη δράση του Ναύαρχου Μιαούλη και πραγματοποιούνται κάθε χρόνο, προς το τέλος του Ιουνίου.
Η Ύδρα, περισσότερο από όλα τα Ελληνικά νησιά, ενέπνευσε τις Καλές Τέχνες. Διάσημοι Έλληνες και ξένοι ζωγράφοι απεικόνισαν στα έργα τους τα τοπία της. Μεγάλοι καλλιτέχνες, όπως ο Πάμπλο Πικάσο και ο Μαρκ Σαγκάλ, την επισκέφτηκαν και αποτύπωσαν σε σχέδια τα αυστηρά της σχήματα. 
Δεν είναι τυχαίο ότι στην Ύδρα υπάρχει παράρτημα της Σχολής Καλών Τεχνών από το 1936, το οποίο στεγάζεται στο τετραώροφο αρχοντικό του Εμμανουήλ Τομπάζη και της Ξανθής Δ. Σαχίνη στα δεξιό τμήμα του λιμανιού.
Η Ύδρα συνδέεται ακτοπλοϊκώς, όλο το έτος, με τα υπόλοιπα νησιά του Αργοσαρωνικού, καθώς και με τα Μέθανα, την Ερμιόνη, το Πόρτο Χέλι, τοΝαύπλιο, τον Tυρό. Μπορεί να μη διαθέτει αεροδρόμιο και ίσως ποτέ δεν θα αποκτήσει εξαιτίας του ορεινού εδάφους της, πλην όμως διαθέτει ελικοδρόμιο.

          NASA elige a joven mexicano para programa internacional      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Es la segunda vez que Jonathan Sánchez Pérez es seleccionado por la NASA para participar en el programa internacional "Air and Space International Program" y representar a México.

El estudiante, de Ingeniería Aeronáutica de la Universidad Politécnica Metropolitana de Hidalgo, fue elegido por su proyecto que propone mejoras para poner en órbita un satélite que ronda Júpiter y generar energía en una colonia por medio de electrólis.

El programado organizado por la NASA, que se realizará del 20 de octubre al 4 de noviembre, busca incentivar el trabajo en equipo entre estudiantes e ingenieros expertos de la agencia espacial, para adaptar y resolver problemas inesperados durante las misiones.

En la edición pasada, Jonathan participó junto a 45 estudiantes de distintos países y obtuvo el segundo lugar. Ahora, trabaja en el desarrollo de drones que sirvan para garantizar la estructura de seguridad de su municipio.

Es originario de Tultepec, Estado de México, y reveló que fue seleccionado para tomar un curso durante 30 días en la Universidad Estatal de Moscú, el próximo 20 de agosto.

En Rusia, llevará a cabo prácticas en el Instituto de Aviación de Moscú y en el Instituto Bauman, para posibles posgrados en materia aeroespacial, donde tomará clases del idioma ruso y visitará el Museo Aeroespacial del Cosmonauta de ese país.

Con tan sólo 20 años de edad, Jonathan ya cuenta entre sus logros: haber participado en el Concurso de Robótica en la Universidad Politécnica del Estado de México, donde obtuvo el 1er lugar en la XIII Olimpiada Estatal de Física en Hidalgo, 4º lugar nacional en Young Business Talents por parte de Praxis y Nivea, así como haber participado en las olimpiadas de matemáticas e informática en la UPMH.

Ανοχύρωτη η χώρα
Δυσοίωνα μηνύματα από την Πυροσβεστική: Ανοχύρωτη η χώρα απέναντι στις πυρκαγιές
«Ο καύσωνας αφαιρεί την υγρασία και αυξάνει την καύσιμη ύλη στα δάση. Αυτό σε συνδυασμό με τις ελλείψεις στο Πυροσβεστικό Σώμα δημιουργεί ένα εκρηκτικό μίγμα.

Ας ελπίσουμε να μην κληθούμε να αντιμετωπίσουμε κάτι ανάλογο με αυτό που συνέβη στην Πορτογαλία».
Η φράση ανήκει σε αξιωματικό του Πυροσβεστικού Σώματος, ο οποίος μιλώντας στον Ελεύθερο Τύπο προσθέτει ότι η Αττική, δέκα χρόνια μετά τον πύρινο όλεθρο στην Πάρνηθα, είναι πιο αποψιλωμένη σε πυροσβεστικό προσωπικό από οποιαδήποτε άλλη χρονιά. Η πύρινη λαίλαπα στην Πορτογαλία, που στοίχισε τη ζωή σε 64 ανθρώπους και προκάλεσε τον τραυματισμό 204, έκρουσε τον κώδωνα του κινδύνου στις πυροσβεστικές υπηρεσίες όλης της Ευρώπης.
Στην Ελλάδα η ηγεσία της Πυροσβεστικής έχει να αντιμετωπίσει ένα συνδυασμό προβλημάτων: τη μειωμένη επιχειρησιακή ετοιμότητα λόγω ελλείψεων σε εναέρια μέσα και εξοπλισμό, την ανεπαρκή συντήρηση των οχημάτων και την «ασθμαίνουσα» δασοπροστασία από τους φορείς Τοπικής Αυτοδιοίκησης. Σε αυτά ήρθε να προστεθεί ο καύσωνας, που μετατρέπει τα δάση σε «πυριτιδαποθήκες» και κάνει τους αξιωματικούς της Πυροσβεστικής να χαρακτηρίζουν τις συνθήκες ως «ακραίες».
Μετακινήσεις
Μέσα σε αυτό το σκηνικό η Ενωση Αξιωματικών Πυροσβεστικού Σώματος ανακοίνωσε χθες ότι «πάνω από 400 πυροσβέστες μετακινήθηκαν από τις πυροσβεστικές υπηρεσίες της Αττικής, παραμονές της έναρξης της αντιπυρικής περιόδου». Οι συγκεκριμένοι πυροσβέστες μετακινήθηκαν εκτός Αττικής για να επανδρώσουν τις νέες πυροσβεστικές υπηρεσίες στους εθνικούς δρόμους και στα αεροδρόμια. Το πρόβλημα, ωστόσο, είναι ότι δεν αντικαταστάθηκαν με αποτέλεσμα να είναι ορατό το ενδεχόμενο η Πυροσβεστική να μην μπορεί να ανταποκριθεί επαρκώς, σε περίπτωση που υπάρξουν ταυτόχρονα δύο μεγάλα πύρινα μέτωπα σε Αττική και κάποιο άλλο σημείο της Ελλάδας.
«Δυστυχώς, μετά από τόσες μεγάλες καταστροφές που ζήσαμε από το 2007 και μετά, φαίνεται ότι η Πολιτεία δεν έχει πάρει ακόμα το μάθημά της, προκειμένου να ενισχύσει την Πυροσβεστική και το σύστημα πολιτικής προστασίας. Η πολιτική ηγεσία, αντί να ενεργεί, επιλέγει την τακτική των ψυχολογικών επιχειρήσεων. Ενδιαφέρον μεν το αφήγημα αλλά το προπέτασμα καπνού δεν φτάνει για να σβήσει πυρκαγιές. Πάνω από το 20% των υδροφόρων οχημάτων και το 30% των βοηθητικών οχημάτων βρίσκονται εκτός λειτουργίας. Για την ηλικιακή τους κατάσταση να πούμε ότι βρίσκονται σε υπερώριμη φάση. Ταυτόχρονα, η εναέρια υποστήριξη των πυροσβεστικών επιχειρήσεων βρίσκεται σε ιστορικά χαμηλά. Το θετικό είναι ότι μετά από τόσες μεγάλες καταστροφές, το προσωπικό του Π.Σ., ελπίζω και οι πολίτες, έχουν συσσωρευμένη εμπειρία διαχείρισης κρίσεων», λέει στον «Ε.Τ.» ο κ. Γιάννης Σταμούλης, πρόεδρος της Ενωσης Αξιωματικών του Πυροσβεστικού Σώματος.
Πιστώσεις τέλος
Και σαν να μην έφταναν αυτά, αρκετοί από τους προμηθευτές του Π.Σ. έχουν σταματήσει τις πιστώσεις, καθώς δεν έχουν άλλη υπομονή να περιμένουν την κάλυψη ανείσπρακτων χρηματικών ενταλμάτων. Το αποτέλεσμα είναι να μένουν παροπλισμένα πυροσβεστικά οχήματα ακόμα και για την έλλειψη μίας φλάντζας αντλίας, που κοστίζει μόλις 120 ευρώ.
«Τα οχήματα κουβαλούν ανθρώπινες ψυχές. Αντί για να δοθεί έμφαση στη συντήρησή τους, κοιτάμε να τους βάλουμε gps για να βλέπει το κέντρο πού βρίσκονται ανά πάσα στιγμή. Αναγκάζονται διοικητές να βγαίνουν στη γύρα για να πάρουν καμία χορηγία. Πρέπει κάποια στιγμή να δώσουμε έμφαση στην πρόληψη. Εχουμε συμβασιούχους που απασχολούνται για πέντε μήνες ενώ θα μπορούσαμε να τους χρησιμοποιούμε όλο το χρόνο, προκειμένου να καθαρίζουν το χειμώνα τα δάση. Ως πότε θα μας ενδιαφέρει μόνο η καταστολή; Οσο για τις δαπάνες για την απασχόλησή τους, σκεφτείτε μόνο πόσο κοστίζει στο Δημόσιο μία πυρκαγιά. Επίσης, θέλω να κάνω μια ρητορική ερώτηση για το πού πηγαίνουν τα χρήματα που δίνονται στους δήμους για δασοπροστασία. Γιατί πρέπει να ξέρετε ότι τα δάση ήταν και είναι πυριτιδαποθήκες», εξηγεί στον «Ε.Τ.» ο κ. Αλέξανδρος Φαραντάκης, πρόεδρος της Πανελλήνιας Ομοσπονδίας Πενταετούς Υποχρέωσης και Συμβασιούχων Πυροσβεστών.
Τα αεροσκάφη
Για ακόμα μία χρονιά φέτος αεροσκάφη ακόμα και ηλικίας 40 ετών θα κληθούν να σβήσουν πυρκαγιές. Πρόκειται για τα Καναντέρ CL-215, τα οποία θεωρούνται εντελώς γερασμένα με αποτέλεσμα τις συνεχείς βλάβες και τη μειωμένη επιχειρησιακή δυνατότητα. Εννιά από αυτά εκτιμάται ότι θα είναι φέτος διαθέσιμα μέχρι τα μέσα του Ιουλίου. Δίπλα τους θα βρίσκονται τέσσερα Καναντέρ CL-415 με δυνατότητα ρίψης έξι τόνων νερού. Δυστυχώς τα τελευταία χρόνια τέσσερα αεροσκάφη αυτού του τύπου έχουν συντριβεί. Στη μάχη θα πέσουν και 19 αεροσκάφη Pezetel, τα οποία, ωστόσο, έχουν σημαντικά μικρότερη δυνατότητα ρίψης νερού (1,5-2 τόνους), ενώ μειονέκτημα αποτελεί και το γεγονός ότι μπορούν να ανεφοδιαστούν μόνο από σταθερές εγκαταστάσεις.
Ο Στρατός ενισχύει τη δασοπυρόσβεση με τη διάθεση τριών Σινούκ, ενώ ακόμα μεγαλύτερη θα είναι η συμβολή του σε περίπτωση που προκύψει έκτακτη ανάγκη. Τα δύο Super Puma με δυνατότητα χρήσης πυροσβεστικού κάδου που είναι σήμερα αξιόμαχα θα μπουν μέχρι το τέλος του Ιουλίου στο συνεργείο για βαριές συντηρήσεις και ενδεχομένως να χρειαστεί η αντικατάστασή τους.
Σύμφωνα με ασφαλείς πληροφορίες από το Π.Σ., το ίδρυμα Λάτση προχώρησε στη δωρεά δύο πυροσβεστικών κάδων και ο όμιλος Βαρδινογιάννη στη δωρεά ακόμη ενός. Γενικότερα, όπως λένε στελέχη του Σώματος, η Πυροσβεστική, λόγω των τεράστιων περικοπών από την επιβολή των Μνημονίων και μετά, έχει ανάγκη από τη στήριξη ιδιωτών.
Αξιόπιστες πηγές αναφέρουν ότι η πολιτική ηγεσία κάνει σκέψεις –χωρίς τίποτα να έχει ακόμα αποφασιστεί- για αγορά 15 Σινούκ (κοστίζουν 2,5 εκατομμύρια ευρώ το ένα και χρειάζονται ακόμα 1,2 εκατομμύρια ευρώ για την τοποθέτηση δεξαμενής). Και αυτό γιατί θεωρείται πιο συμφέρουσα λύση η αγορά τους σε σχέση με την ενοικίαση -όπως γίνεται μέχρι σήμερα- ελικοπτέρων Ericson.
Επίσκεψη Τόσκα στο Κέντρο Επιχειρήσεων
Ο υπουργός Προστασίας του Πολίτη Νίκος Τόσκας επισκέφθηκε χθες το Επιχειρησιακό Συντονιστικό Κέντρο Επιχειρήσεων (ΕΣΚΕ) του Π.Σ., όπου συνάντησε τον αρχηγό Π.Σ., Βασίλη Καπέλιο, και τον διοικητή του ΕΣΚΕ, Γιάννη Φωστιέρη.
Ο κ. Τόσκας ενημερώθηκε για τον επιχειρησιακό σχεδιασμό σε σχέση με τη διασπορά των εναέριων και των επίγειων μέσων, καθώς και για τα μέτρα που λαμβάνονται εν μέσω του καύσωνα. Παράλληλα, ενημερώθηκε για την εφαρμογή του νέου έργου «Ψηφιακή Υπηρεσία Ειδοποίησης και Αντιμετώπισης Πυρκαγιάς». Πρόκειται για την εγκατάσταση σύγχρονων πληροφοριακών συστημάτων στο κέντρο επιχειρήσεων, που θα δίνουν τη δυνατότητα καλύτερου συντονισμού των πυροσβεστικών δυνάμεων τόσο πριν όσο και μετά την εκδήλωση μιας πυρκαγιάς, ενώ ταυτόχρονα θα παρέχει άμεση ενημέρωση στους πολίτες σε περίπτωση έκτακτης ανάγκης.
Αναλυτικότερα, το σύστημα είναι σχεδιασμένο να συλλέγει και να αναλύει γεωγραφικά δεδομένα, που θα λαμβάνει από τα οχήματα και τα πεζοπόρα τμήματα της Πυροσβεστικής. Στη μάχη κατά των πυρκαγιών πέφτουν φέτος και τα μη επανδρωμένα αεροσκάφη (drones), τα οποία θα δίνουν ζωντανή εικόνα στο επιχειρησιακό κέντρο του Π.Σ.
Η ΟΡΙΑΚΗ ΚΑΤΑΣΤΑΣΗ ΤΩΝ ΑΕΡΟΣΚΑΦΩΝ ΣΕ ΑΡΙΘΜΟΥΣ
4 από τα συνολικά 8 πυροσβεστικά αεροσκάφη Καναντέρ CL-415 θα είναι στην καλύτερη περίπτωση ετοιμοπόλεμα μέχρι τα μέσα Ιουλίου. Εχουν δυνατότητα ρίψης 6 τόνων νερού
9 από τα συνολικά 13 αεροσκάφη Καναντέρ CL-215 θα είναι διαθέσιμα στην καλύτερη περίπτωση φέτος. Δυνατότητα ρίψης νερού 5,5 τόνων νερού
40 χρόνια επιχειρήσεων συμπληρώνουν τα Καναντέρ CL-215, τα οποία θεωρούνται εντελώς γερασμένα με αποτέλεσμα τις συνεχείς βλάβες και τη μειωμένη επιχειρησιακή δυνατότητα
19 αεροσκάφη Pezetel βρίσκονται σήμερα σε πτητική διαθεσιμότητα από τα συνολικά 21. Δυνατότητα ρίψης νερού 1,5-2 τόνους. Το μειονέκτημά τους είναι ότι μπορούν να ανεφοδιαστούν μόνο από σταθερές εγκαταστάσεις (αεροδρόμια)
2 ιδιόκτητα Super Puma με δυνατότητα χρήσης πυροσβεστικού κάδου. Τον Ιούλιο θα μπουν στο συνεργείο για βαριές συντηρήσεις
7 μεσαίου τύπου ελικόπτερα θα διατεθούν μέχρι το τέλος του Ιουλίου
3 ελικόπτερα B/K 117 είναι έτοιμα να μπουν στη μάχη (πρόκειται για ελικόπτερα μεταφοράς προσωπικού και συντονισμού)
4 Καναντέρ CL-415 έχουν συντριβεί τα τελευταία χρόνια

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, A NEW COHORT OF PROGRESSIVES IS RUNNING FOR—AND WINNING—ELECTIONS. The stunning victory of democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic congressional primary in New York is perhaps the most well-known, but she is far from alone. Most of these candidates are young, more than usual are people of color, many are women, several are Muslims, at least one is a refugee, at least one is transgender—and all are unabashedly left. Most come to electoral politics after years of activism around issues like immigration, climate and racism. They come out of a wide range of social movements and support policy demands that reflect the principles of those movements: labor rights, immigrant and refugee rights, women’s and gender rights, equal access to housing and education, environmental justice, and opposition to police violence and racial profiling. Some, though certainly not all, identify not just with the policies of socialism but with the fundamental core values and indeed the name itself, usually in the form of democratic socialism.

Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American woman in Detroit, just won the Democratic primary for the legendary Congressman John Conyers’ seat. Four women, two of them members of Democratic Socialists of America and all four endorsed by DSA, beat their male incumbent opponents in Pennsylvania state house primaries. Tahirah Amatul-Wadud is running an insurgent campaign for Congress against a longstanding incumbent in western Massachusetts, keeping her focus on Medicare-for-All and civil rights. Minnesota State Rep. Ilhan Omar, a former Somali refugee, won endorsement from the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, and is running for Keith Ellison’s former congressional seat as an “intersectional feminist.” And there are more.

Many highlight their movement experience in their campaigns; they are champions of immigrant rights, healthcare, student debt organizing and the fight for $15. Intersectionality has grown stronger, as the extremism of Trump’s right-wing racist assault creates significant new gains in linking separate movements focused on racism, women’s rights, immigrant rights, climate, poverty, labor rights and more.

But mostly, we’re not seeing progressive and socialist candidates clearly link domestic issues with efforts to challenge war, militarism and the war economy. There are a few exceptions: Congressional candidate and Hawaii State Rep. Kaniela Ing speaks powerfully about U.S. colonialism in Hawaii, and Virginia State Rep. Lee J. Carter has spoken strongly against U.S. bombing of Syria, linking current attacks with the legacy of U.S. military interventions. There may be more. But those are exceptions; most of the new left candidates focus on crucial issues of justice at home.

A progressive foreign policy must reject U.S. military and economic domination and instead be grounded in global cooperation, human rights, respect for international law and privileging diplomacy over war.

It’s not that progressive leaders don’t care about international issues, or that our movements are divided. Despite too many common assumptions, it is not political suicide for candidates or elected officials to stake out progressive anti-war, anti-militarism positions. Quite the contrary: Those positions actually have broad support within both our movements and public opinion. It’s just that it’s hard to figure out the strategies that work to connect internationally focused issues, anti-war efforts, or challenges to militarism, with the wide array of activists working on locally grounded issues. Some of those strategies seem like they should be easy—like talking about slashing the 53 cents of every discretionary federal dollar that now goes to the military as the easiest source to fund Medicare-for-all or free college education. It should be easy, but somehow it’s not: Too often, foreign policy feels remote from the urgency of domestic issues facing such crises. When our movements do figure out those strategies, candidates can easily follow suit.

Candidates coming out of our movements into elected office will need clear positions on foreign policy. Here are several core principles that should shape those positions.

A progressive foreign policy must reject U.S. military and economic domination and instead be grounded in global cooperation, human rights, respect for international law and privileging diplomacy over war. That does not mean isolationism, but instead a strategy of diplomatic engagement rather than—not as political cover for—destructive U.S. military interventions that have so often defined the U.S. role in the world.

Looking at the political pretexts for what the U.S. empire is doing around the world today, a principled foreign policy might start by recognizing that there is no military solution to terrorism and that the global war on terror must be ended.

More broadly, the militarization of foreign policy must be reversed and diplomacy must replace military action in every venue, with professional diplomats rather than the White House’s political appointees in charge. Aspiring and elected progressive and socialist office-holders should keep in mind the distinction between the successes and failures of Obama’s foreign policy. The victories were all diplomatic: moving towards normalization with Cuba, the Paris climate accord and especially the Iran nuclear deal. Obama’s greatest failures—in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen—all occurred because the administration chose military action over robust diplomacy.

Certainly, diplomacy has been a tool in the arsenal of empires, including the United States. But when we are talking about official policies governing relations between countries, diplomacy—meaning talking, negotiating and engaging across a table—is always, always better than engaging across a battlefield.

A principled foreign policy must recognize how the war economy has distorted our society at home—and commit to reverse it. The $717 billion of the military budget is desperately needed for jobs, healthcare and education here at home—and for a diplomatic surge and humanitarian and reconstruction assistance to people of countries devastated by U.S. wars and sanctions.

A principled foreign policy must acknowledge how U.S. actions—military, economic and climate-related—have been a driving force in displacing people around the world. We therefore have an enormous moral as well as legal obligation to take the lead in providing humanitarian support and refuge for those displaced—so immigration and refugee rights are central to foreign policy.

For too long the power of the U.S. empire has dominated international relations, led to the privileging of war over diplomacy on a global scale, and created a vast—and invasive—network of 800-plus military bases around the world.

Now, overall U.S. global domination is actually shrinking, and not only because of Trump’s actions. China’s economy is rapidly catching up, and its economic clout in Africa and elsewhere eclipses that of the United States. It’s a measure of the United States’ waning power that Europe, Russia and China are resisting U.S. efforts to impose new global sanctions on Iran. But the United States is still the world’s strongest military and economic power: Its military spending vastly surpasses that of the eight next strongest countries, it is sponsoring a dangerous anti-Iran alliance between Israel and the wealthy Gulf Arab states, it remains central to NATO decision-making, and powerful forces in Washington threaten new wars in North Korea and Iran. The United States remains dangerous.

Progressives in Congress have to navigate the tricky task of rejecting American exceptionalism. That means recognizing that it is often a good thing when U.S. global military and economic efforts fail, because they are generally aimed at maintaining domination and control. Without that U.S. domination, the possibility arises of a new kind of internationalism: to prevent and solve crises that arise from current and potential wars, to promote nuclear disarmament, to come up with climate solutions and to protect refugees.

That effort is increasingly important because of the rapid rise of right-wing xenophobic authoritarians seeking and winning power. Trump is now leading and enabling an informal global grouping of such leaders, from Egypt’s Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to Victor Orban in Hungary and others. Progressive elected officials in the United States can pose an important challenge to that authoritarian axis by building ties with their like-minded counterparts in parliaments and governments—possibilities include Jeremy Corbyn in the United Kingdom and Andrés Manuel López Obrador in Mexico, among others. And progressive and leftist members of Congress will need to be able to work together with social movements to build public pressure for diplomatic initiatives not grounded in the interests of U.S. empire.

In addition to these broad principles, candidates and elected officials need critical analyses of current U.S. engagement around the world, as well as nuanced prescriptions for how to de-escalate militarily, and ramp up a new commitment to serious diplomacy.

GEOPOLITICAL POWER PLAYS

RUSSIA: Relations with Russia will be a major challenge for the foreseeable future. With 90 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons in U.S. and Russian hands, and the two powers deploying military forces on opposite sides of active battlefronts in Syria, it is crucial that relations remain open—not least to derail potential escalations and ensure the ability to stand down from any accidental clash.

Progressives and leftists in Congress will need to promote a nuanced, careful approach to Russia policy. And they will face a daunting environment in which to do so. They will have to deal with loud cries from right-wing war-mongers, mainly Republicans, and from neo-con interventionists in both parties, demanding a one-sided anti-Russia policy focused on increased sanctions and potentially even military threats. But many moderate and liberal Democrats—and much of the media—are also joining the anti-Russia crusade. Some of those liberals and moderates have likely bought into the idea of American exceptionalism, accepting as legitimate or irrelevant the long history of U.S. election meddling around the world and viewing the Russian efforts as somehow reaching a whole different level of outrageousness. Others see the anti-Russia mobilization solely in the context of undermining Trump.

But at the same time, progressive Congress members should recognize that reports of Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 and 2018 elections cannot be dismissed out of hand. They should continue to demand that more of the evidence be made public, and condemn the Russian meddling that has occurred, even while recognizing that the most serious threats to our elections come from voter suppression campaignsat home more than from Moscow. And they have to make clear that Trump’s opponents cannot be allowed to turn the president’s infatuation with Vladimir Putin into the basis for a new Cold War, simply to oppose Trump.

CHINA: The broad frame of a progressive approach should be to end Washington’s provocative military and economic moves and encourage deeper levels of diplomatic engagement. This means replacing military threats with diplomacy in response to Chinese moves in the South China Sea, as well as significant cuts in the ramped-up military ties with U.S. allies in the region, such as Vietnam. Progressive and socialist members of Congress and other elected officials will no doubt be aware that the rise of China’s economic dominance across Africa, and its increasing influence in parts of Latin America, could endanger the independence of countries in those parts of the Global South. But they will also need to recognize that any U.S. response to what looks like Chinese exploitation must be grounded in humility, acknowledging the long history of U.S. colonial and neocolonial domination throughout those same regions. Efforts to compete with Chinese economic assistance by increasing Washington’s own humanitarian and development aid should mean directing all funds through the UN, rather than through USAID or the Pentagon. That will make U.S. assistance far less likely to be perceived as—and to be—an entry point for exploitation.

NATO: A progressive position on NATO flies straight into the face of the partisan component of the anti-Trump resistance—the idea that if Trump is for it, we should be against it. For a host of bad reasons that have to do with personal enrichment and personal power, Trump sometimes takes positions that large parts of the U.S. and global anti-war and solidarity movements have long supported. One of those is NATO. During the Cold War, NATO was the European military face of U.S.-dominated Western anti-Communism and anti-Sovietism. With the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, peace activists from around the world called for the dissolution of NATO as an anachronistic relic whose raison d’etre was now gone.

Instead, NATO used its 50th anniversary in 1999 to rebrand itself as defending a set of amorphous, ostensibly “Western” values such as democracy, rather than having any identifiable enemy—something like a military version of the EU, with the United States on board for clout. Unable to win UN Security Council support for war in Kosovo, the United States and its allies used NATO to provide so-called authorization for a major bombing campaign—in complete violation of international law—and began a rapid expansion of the NATO alliance right up to the borders of Russia. Anti-war forces across the world continued to rally around the call “No to NATO”—a call to dissolve the alliance altogether.

But when Trump, however falsely, claims to call for an end to the alliance, or shows disdain for NATO, anti-Trump politicians and media lead the way in embracing the military alliance as if it really did represent some version of human rights and international law. It doesn’t—and progressives in elected positions need to be willing to call out NATO as a militarized Cold War relic that shouldn’t be reconfigured to maintain U.S. domination in Europe or to mobilize against Russia or China or anyone else. It should be ended.

In fact, Trump’s claims to oppose NATO are belied by his actions. In his 2019 budget request he almost doubled the 2017 budget for the Pentagon’s “European Deterrence Initiative,” designed explicitly as a response to “threats from Russia.” There is a huge gap between Trump’s partisan base-pleasing condemnation of NATO and his administration&rdqou;s actual support for strengthening the military alliance. That contradiction should make it easier for progressive candidates and officeholders to move to cut NATO funding and reduce its power—not because Trump is against NATO but because the military alliance serves as a dangerous provocation toward war.

THE WAR ON TERROR

What George W. Bush first called “the global war on terror” is still raging almost 17 years later, though with different forms of killing and different casualty counts. Today’s reliance on airstrikes, drone attacks and a few thousand special forces has replaced the hundreds of thousands of U.S. and allied ground troops. And today hardly any U.S. troops are being killed, while civilian casualties are skyrocketing across the Middle East and Afghanistan. Officials from the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations have repeated the mantra that “there is no military solution” in Afghanistan, Syria, or Iraq or against terrorism, but their actions have belied those words. Progressive elected officials need to consistently remind the public and their counterparts that it is not possible to bomb terrorism out of existence. Bombs don’t hit “terrorism”; they hit cities, houses, wedding parties. And on those rare occasions when they hit the people actually named on the White House&rdqou;s unaccountable kill list, or “terrorist” list, the impact often creates more terrorists.

The overall progressive policy on this question means campaigning for diplomatic solutions and strategies instead of military ones. That also means joining the ongoing congressional efforts led by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and others  to challenge the continued reliance on the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF).

In general, privileging diplomatic over war strategies starts with withdrawing troops and halting the arms sales that flood the region with deadly weapons. Those weapons too often end up in the hands of killers on all sides, from bands of unaccountable militants to brutally repressive governments, with civilians paying the price. Congress members should demand an end of massive arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other U.S. allies carrying out brutal wars across the Middle East, and they should call for an end to the practice of arming non-state proxies who kill even more people. They should call for a U.S. arms embargo on Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Jordan and Israel (which presents a whole other set of arms-related challenges), while urging Russia to stop its arms sales to Syria, Iran and Pakistan. Given the power of the arms industries in the United States, arms embargoes are the most difficult—but perhaps the most important—part of ending the expanding Middle East wars.

Progressives in Congress should demand real support for UN-sponsored and other international peace initiatives, staffing whole new diplomatic approaches whose goal is political solutions rather than military victories—and taking funds out of military budgets to cover the costs. The goal should be to end these endless wars—not try to “win&rdqou; them.

ISRAEL-PALESTINE: The most important thing for candidates to know is that there has been a massive shift in public opinion in recent years. It is no longer political suicide to criticize Israel. Yes, AIPAC and the rest of the right-wing Jewish, pro-Israel lobbies remain influential and have a lot of money to throw around. (The Christian Zionist lobbies are powerful too, but there is less political difficulty for progressives to challenge them.) But there are massive shifts underway in U.S. Jewish publicopinion on the conflict, and the lobbies cannot credibly claim to speak for the Jewish community as a whole.

Outside the Jewish community, the shift is even more dramatic, and has become far more partisan: Uncritical support for Israel is now overwhelmingly a Republican position. Among Democrats, particularly young Democrats, support for Israel has fallen dramatically; among Republicans, support for Israel’s far-right government is sky-high. The shift is particularly noticeable among Democrats of color, where recognition of the parallels between Israeli oppression of Palestinians and the legacies of Jim Crow segregation in the United States and apartheid in South Africa is rising rapidly.

U.S. policy, unfortunately, has not kept up with that changing discourse. But modest gains are evident even there. When nearly 60 members of the House and Senate openly skipped Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech when he came to lobby Congress to vote against President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, the sky didn’t fall. The snub to the Israeli prime minister was unprecedented, but no one lost their seat because of it. Rep. Betty McCollum’s bill to protect Palestinian children from Israel’s vicious military juvenile detention system (the only one in the world) now has 29 co-sponsors, and the sky still isn’t falling. Members of Congress are responding more frequently to Israeli assaults on Gaza and the killing of protesters, often because of powerful movements among their constituents. When Trump moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz acknowledged the divide: “While members of the Republican Party overwhelmingly expressed support for the move, Democrats were split between those who congratulated Trump for it and those who called it a dangerous and irresponsible action.”

That creates space for candidates and newly elected officials to respond to the growing portion of their constituencies that supports Palestinian rights. Over time, they must establish a rights-based policy. That means acknowledging that the quarter-century-long U.S.-orchestrated “peace process” based on the never-serious pursuit of a solution, has failed. Instead, left and progressive political leaders can advocate for a policy that turns over real control of diplomacy to the UN, ends support for Israeli apartheid and occupation, and instead supports a policy based on international law, human rights and equality for all, without privileging Jews or discriminating against non-Jews.

To progress from cautiously urging that Israel abide by international law, to issuing a full-scale call to end or at least reduce the $3.8 billion per year that Congress sends straight to the Israeli military, might take some time. In the meantime, progressive candidates must prioritize powerful statements condemning the massacre of unarmed protesters in Gaza and massive Israeli settlement expansion, demands for real accountability for Israeli violations of human rights and international law (including reducing U.S. support in response), and calls for an end to the longstanding U.S. protection that keeps Israel from being held accountable in the UN.

The right consistently accuses supporters of Palestinian rights of holding Israel to a double standard. Progressives in Congress should turn that claim around on them and insist that U.S. policy towards Israel—Washington’s closest ally in the region and the recipient of billions of dollars in military aid every year—hold Israel to exactly the same standards that we want the United States to apply to every other country: human rights, adherence to international law and equality for all.

Many supporters of the new crop of progressive candidates, and many activists in the movements they come out of, are supporters of the increasingly powerful, Palestinian-led BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement, that aims to bring non-violent economic pressure to bear on Israel until it ends its violations of international law. This movement deserves credit for helping to mainstream key demands—to end the siege of Gaza and the killing of protesters, to support investigations of Israeli violations by the International Criminal Court, to oppose Israel’s new “nation-state’ law—that should all be on lawmakers’ immediate agenda.

AFGHANISTAN: More than 100,000 Afghans and 2,000 U.S. troops have been killed in a U.S. war that has raged for almost 17 years. Not-Yet-President Trump called for withdrawal from Afghanistan, but within just a few months after taking office he agreed instead to send additional troops, even though earlier deployments of more than 100,000 U.S. troops (and thousands more coalition soldiers) could not win a military victory over the Taliban. Corruption in the U.S.-backed and -funded Afghan government remains sky-high, and in just the past three years, the Pentagon has lost track of how $3.1 billion of its Afghanistan funds were spent. About 15,000 US troops are still deployed, with no hope of a military victory for the United States.

Progressive members of Congress should demand a safe withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, acting on the long-held recognition that military force simply won’t work to bring about the political solution all sides claim to want.

Several pending bills also would reclaim the centrality of Congress’ role in authorizing war in general and in Afghanistan in particular—including ending the 2001 AUMF. Funding for humanitarian aid, refugee support, and in the future compensation and reparations for the massive destruction the U.S.-led war has wrought across the country, should all be on Congress’ agenda, understanding that such funding will almost certainly fail while U.S. troops are deployed.

IRAN: With U.S. and Iranian military forces facing each other in Syria, the potential for an unintentional escalation is sky-high. Even a truly accidental clash between a few Iranian and U.S. troops, or an Iranian anti-aircraft system mistakenly locking on to a U.S. warplane plane even if it didn’t fire, could have catastrophic consequences without immediate military-to-military and quick political echelon discussions to defuse the crisis. And with tensions very high, those ties are not routinely available. Relations became very dangerous when Trump withdrew the United States from the multi-lateral nuclear deal in May. (At that time, a strong majority of people in the United States favored the deal, and less than one in three wanted to pull out of it.)

The United States continues to escalate threats against Iran. It is sponsoring a growing regional anti-Iran alliance, with Israel and Saudi Arabia now publicly allied and pushing strongly for military action. And Trump has surrounded himself with war-mongers for his top advisers, including John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, who have both supported regime change in Iran and urged military rather than diplomatic approaches to Iran.

Given all that, what progressive elected officials need to do is to keep fighting for diplomacy over war. That means challenging U.S. support for the anti-Iran alliance and opposing sanctions on Iran. It means developing direct ties with parliamentarians from the European and other signatories to the Iran nuclear deal, with the aim of collective opposition to new sanctions, re-legitimizing the nuclear deal in Washington and reestablishing diplomacy as the basis for U.S. relations with Iran.

It should also mean developing a congressional response to the weakening of international anti-nuclear norms caused by the pull-out from the Iran deal. That means not just supporting the nonproliferation goals of the Iran nuclear deal, but moving further towards real disarmament and ultimately the abolition of nuclear weapons. Progressives in and outside of Congress should make clear that nuclear nonproliferation (meaning no one else gets to have nukes) can’t work in the long run without nuclear disarmament (meaning that the existing nuclear weapons states have to give them up). That could start with a demand for full U.S. compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which calls for negotiations leading to “nuclear disarmament, and on a treaty on general and complete disarmament.”

SYRIA: Progressive candidates and elected officials should support policies designed to end, not “win” the war. That means withdrawing troops, ceasing airstrikes and drone attacks, and calling for an arms embargo on all sides of the multiple proxy war. The civil war component of the multiple wars in Syria is winding down as the regime consolidates its control, but the sectarian, regional and global components of that war have not disappeared, so continuing a call for an arms embargo is still important. The first step is to permanently end the Pentagon’s and the CIA’s “arm and train” policies that have prolonged the war and empowered some of its most dangerous actors.

There will also need to be negotiations between the regional and global actors that have been waging their own wars in Syria, wars that have little to do with Syria itself, but with Syrians doing the bulk of the dying. That means support for the UN’s and other internationally-sponsored de-escalation efforts, and serious engagement with Russia towards a permanent ceasefire, as well as the arms embargo. U.S. policy should include absolute prohibitions on Washington’s regional allies—including Saudi Arabia and Turkey—sending U.S.-provided arms into Syria. And progressive supporters of diplomacy should also maintain pressure on the United States to back multi-lateral diplomatic processes organized by the UN and others—on humanitarian issues in Geneva, and political issues in Astana. Cutting the United States’ multi-billion dollar arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Jordan, Turkey and other U.S. allies involved in the Syrian wars would also lend legitimacy to U.S. efforts within those diplomatic processes to press Russia to stop providing arms to the Assad regime.

IRAQ: Congress has largely abrogated its responsibilities even as the 15-year war initiated by the United States continues. Progressive policymakers would do well to join the existing efforts to end—not replace, but cancel—the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force against Saddam Hussein's government in Iraq, and reopen congressional debate, with the goal of ending funding for war in Iraq once and for all. When President Obama withdrew the last troops from Iraq at the end of 2011, stating that “war in Iraq ends this month,” many assumed that the authorization ended as well. But it was never officially repealed and had no expiration date, and three years later Obama claimed that the then-12-year-old authorization justified the war against ISIS in Iraq. While Trump has relied primarily on the 2001 AUMF, the Iraq-specific authorization of 2002 remains in place and should be withdrawn. 

In the meantime, progressives in Congress should support many of the same policies for Iraq as for Syria: withdraw the troops and special forces, stop the assassination program that is the heart of Washington’s “counter-terrorism” campaign and cease sending arms. Congress should end funding to force the closure of the network of small “forward operating bases” and other U.S. military bases that may remain in U.S. hands in Iraq despite earlier agreements to turn them over to the Iraqi government. The U.S. must figure out new ways to provide financial compensation and support to the people whose country and society has been shredded by more than a dozen years of crippling U.S.-led economic sanctions bookended by two devastating wars (Desert Storm, starting in 1991, and the Iraq War, starting in 2003)—while somehow avoiding the further empowerment of corrupt and sectarian political and military leaders.

YEMEN AND SAUDI ARABIA: The ongoing Saudi-led war against Yemen reflects the most deadly front of Saudi Arabia’s competition with Iran for regional hegemony. The United States is providing indirect and direct support, including U.S. Air Force pilots providing in-air refueling so Saudi and UAE warplanes can bomb Yemen more efficiently, and Green Berets fighting alongside Saudi troops on the border, in what the New York Times called “a continuing escalation of America’s secret wars.”

The U.S.-backed Saudi war against Yemen has also created what the UN has declared the world’s most serious humanitarian crisis. Congress’ first action must be to immediately end all U.S. involvement in the war. Next, Congress must reject all approvals for arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE as long as they continue to bomb and blockade Yemen.

Ending these arms sales may be a serious challenge, given the power of the arms manufacturers’ lobby, Israel’s strong support of Saudi Arabia against Iran and the fact that Saudi Arabia remains the top U.S. arms customer. But recent efforts and relatively close votes in both the House and Senate, while not successful, indicate that challenging the longstanding process of providing the Saudis with whatever weapons they want may be closer to reality than anticipated. The House called the U.S. military involvement in the Saudi war in Yemen “unauthorized.” Reps. Ro Khanna, Marc Pocan and others have introduced numerous House bills in recent months aimed at reducing U.S. arms sales and involvement in the Saudi-led assault. In the Senate, a March resolution to end U.S. military involvement in the Yemen war failed by only 11 votes, a much narrower margin than anticipated. Progressive candidates and new members of Congress should support all those efforts, and move further with a call for ending the longstanding U.S. alliance with Saudi Arabia, especially military sales and support for the Saudi-Israeli partnership against Iran.

A QUICK GLANCE AT SOME OTHER POLICY QUESTIONS

NORTH KOREA: Progressive elected officials will need to support Trump’s diplomatic initiatives, challenging mainstream Democrats willing to abandon diplomacy because Trump supports it (however tactically or temporarily). Progressives will also need to condemn U.S. military provocations that undermine that same diplomacy, and build public and congressional support for the inter-Korean diplomatic moves already underway. That should include pushing for exemptions in the U.S.-imposed sanctions that would allow inter-Korean economic and other initiatives to go forward. Progressives in Congress can also play a major role in supporting people-to-people diplomacy with North Korea, and they can lead the way in replacing the current armistice with a peace treaty finally ending the Korean War.

AFRICA: Across the continent, there is an urgent need to reverse the militarization of foreign policy, including reducing the size, breadth of responsibilities and theater of operations of AFRICOM.  The wide-ranging but unauthorized and largely secretive special operations and other military actions across the continent violate not only international law, but U.S. domestic law as well.

LATIN AMERICA: In Latin America, there is an urgent need for a new anti-interventionist policy, not least to stop the current attempts to take advantage of serious domestic crises in Venezuela, Nicaragua and elsewhere. Progressives will need to challenge the U.S. economic and foreign policies that create refugees from Central America in particular (including the consequences of the U.S. wars of the 1980s), even while fighting to protect those migrants seeking safety in the United States as a result of those earlier policies. Regarding Mexico, Congress needs to fight for a U.S. position in trade negotiations that is not based on economic nationalism, but rather on making sure that Mexican workers and U.S. workers are both equally lifted up. Left policymakers will also have the chance to play a leading role in forging a new relationship with Mexico’s just-elected progressive President Lopez-Obrador. 

All of the areas where U.S. wars are or were underway, as well as places where U.S. economic and climate policies have helped create crises threatening people’s lives, also become areas from which migrants are forced to flee their homes. U.S. policymakers must acknowledge that U.S. policies are direct causes of the refugee crises that exist in and around the war zones and climate crisis zones of the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere—and that the refugees seeking asylum in Europe, and the far fewer trying to come to the United States, are a consequence of those policies. So progressive candidates and policymakers should support massive expansion of funding for these victims of war, including humanitarian support in their home regions and acceptance of far greater numbers of refugees into the United States. They must directly challenge the xenophobic policies of the Trump administration that include the Muslim Ban, the separation of children from their families at the border and the vast reduction in refugees accepted into this country. In Congress, that might include introducing bills to cut funding for ICE or eliminate the institution altogether.

Finally, progressive candidates and elected officials will need to continue to craft policy proposals that recognize what happens when the U.S. wars come home. This requires more voices in Congress challenging the military budget because it’s used to kill people abroad and because the money is needed for jobs, health care and education at home. It means challenging Islamophobia rising across the United States because of how it threatens Muslims in the United States and because it is used to build support for wars against predominantly Muslim countries. It means exposing—on the floor of the House and beyond—the fact that the Muslim bans targeted primarily countries the United States was bombing, sanctioning or stationing soldiers in. And it means being clear that protecting refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants has to include ending the wars that create refugees in the first place.

Certainly, we shouldn’t expect every progressive or even every socialist running for national office to become an instant expert on every complicated piece of U.S. foreign policy. And for those running for state and local office, there may seem to be even less urgency. But we’ve seen how the Poor People’s Campaign, with its inclusion of militarism and the war economy as one of its four central targets (along with racism, poverty and environmental destruction), has demonstrated to all of our movements the importance of—and a model for—including an anti-war focus within multi-issue state and local mobilizations. The Movement for Black Lives has created one of the strongest internationalist and anti-war platforms we’ve seen in years—including calls for cutting the military budget, supporting Palestinian rights, stopping the Global War on Terror and the so-called War on Drugs, ending the militarized U.S. interventions across Africa, and linking U.S. military and economic policies with the rise in Haitian and other—predominantly Black—immigration.

Immigrant rights activists are linking movements for sanctuary (and against ICE) with opposition to the wars that create refugees. Campaignsare underway to reject the training of U.S. police by Israeli police and military forces. Battles are being waged to get local law enforcement agencies to refuse Pentagon offers of weapons and equipment left over from U.S. wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere. These campaigns all play out at the local and state level.

So especially for those running for Congress, but really for all candidates at every political level and venue in this country, there is a clear need for a strong, principled position on at least a few key foreign policy issues. And the key to making that happen still lies with our movements.

Bach Concertos (vinyl reissue) Hilary Hahn, violin Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Jeffrey Kahane, conductor
Attention vinyl lovers! Here Hilary Hahn’s first recording on Deutsche Grammophon of Bach Violin Concertos, available for the first time on vinyl. Originally released in 2003, the album was a triumph for Hahn, praised by Classics Today for "the chamber-like interplay that produces a more ‘authentic’ impression than many performances using period instruments." BELOW: Hilary Hahn plays the Bach Double with concertmaster Margaret Batjer and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
Mark-Anthony Turnage Double Violin Concerto Vadim Repin, violin Daniel Hope, violin Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic
Mark-Anthony Turnage Double Violin Concerto, "Shadow Walker," is dedicated to artist Mark Wallinger, and the title is drawn from a Wallinger video in which the artist films his shadow as he walks along Shaftesbury Avenue in London. The disembodied shadow takes on its own life in relation to the public on the streets. "The idea of shadowing can take many musical forms, such as through canonic writing and the imitation of intervals, though I haven't gone as far as composing a fugue," Turnage said. "The string sound of Vadim Repin and Daniel Hope should blend particularly well, almost like two aspects of the same identity. There isn't a strict hierarchical relationship with one violin the shadow of the other - it is much more equal and fluid." BELOW: An excerpt from the album.
Engage Josh Modney, violin Sam Pluta, electronics Kate Soper, soprano Eric Wubbels, piano
Comprised of three programs, Engage as a whole presents a body of work that has both defined and been shaped by Modney’s distinctly 21st century violin performance practice, exploring new technical and expressive frontiers on the instrument. The first program includes Sam Pluta’s Jem Altieri with a Ring Modulator Circuit, for violin and live electronics (2011); Taylor Brook’s Vocalise, for violin solo with drone (2009); Kate Soper’s Cipher, for soprano and violin (2011); and Anthony Braxton’s Composition No. 222 (1998). The second program pairs Modney’s adventurous interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Ciaccona (1720) in Just Intonation with Eric Wubbels’s “the children of fire come looking for fire”, for violin and prepared piano (2012). The final program features Josh Modney’s Violin Solos (2017). BELOW: From the album, "Vocalise" by Taylor Brook.

          Illegal Logging Threatens Old Growth Forests In Central And Eastern Europe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Virgin forest in Ukrainian Carpathians © Mariia-Varvara ZakaliuzhnaVienna - WWF-Austria filed a complaint to the Federal Office for Forests (BfW) in Vienna as Austrian companies fail to implement the EU's Timber Regulation (EUTR). Recent reports of environmental organizations EIA (Environmental Investigation Agency) and Earthsight demonstrate several Austrian timber companies violated their commitments to stop sourcing wood from national parks in Romania. The research also revealed that up to 44% of Ukrainian timber exports to the EU may be illegal, and that a top Ukrainian official demanded illegal payments from foreign companies to supply them with cheap timber from local forests.

"WWF has been working for years to find technical solutions for removing illegally harvested wood from the supply chains in the Carpathians and other regions in Central and Eastern Europe", said Ionut Sorin Banciu, Regional Forest Lead of WWF-Danube-Carpathian Programme. One technique used is promoting the transparency of wood harvesting and transportation in Romania, Ukraine and Bulgaria.

In Romania, WWF has supported authorities to develop SUMAL, a best-practice system for tracing wood supply that includes a central database and a hotline people can call to report or verify the legality of wood shipments. National authorities recently accepted WWF proposals for updating and strengthening SUMAL in Romania.

In Romania, WWF has also built and maintained a dedicated on-line platform  where all risks of illegal logging have been identified and mitigation measures have been proposed as solutions to be used by interested stakeholders or companies in their due diligence systems.

In Ukraine, WWF and partners have established the Forest Watch programme, which relies on satellite imaging, drones, citizen volunteers and close cooperation with relevant authorities to monitor and identify illegal logging.

WWF is supporting FSC Risk Assessments in Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria and Slovakia as best available sources of information related to identifying  risks of illegal logging in these countries. It has also proposed mitigation measures which can be used by companies to address these risks.

To support implementation of EU Timber Regulation in several Central and Eastern European countries, WWF has organized trainings, developed subsequent legislation for implementing legislation and elaborated guidelines to operators and traders. As a best practice example, WWF and competent Romanian authorities have developed together the first version of a risk map of illegal logging in the country.

In Bulgaria, anyone may use the information on the WWF website to detect and report illegal logging in the country. Recently, WWF published an analysis of illegal logging in Bulgaria and proposed steps to address the issue.

          Police Are Acquiring Surveillance Tech in Secret      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A California bill would give the public a say and require more transparency from law enforcement.

Recent stories about Amazon’s invasive face scanning surveillance technology and Cambridge Analytica’s exploitation of Facebook data have brought the impact of surveillance and data misuse to the fore. But many people don’t realize how often local law enforcement agencies acquire and use similar technologies in their own communities. A groundbreaking bill pending in California would bring this day-to-day local surveillance out of the shadows and give communities a way to fight back against surveillance systems that are disproportionately aimed at immigrants and people of color.

The bill, SB 1186, requires greater transparency and public oversight when law enforcement agencies seek to acquire surveillance technologies that collect sensitive location or other personal data. It builds on a workable model that several California localities have already enacted.

Right now, a key California legislative committee holds the power to advance the bill, which is supported by a broad coalition of California civil rights and civil liberties organizations. In this political climate, it’s a necessary tool for protecting immigrants and other vulnerable residents from surveillance systems that are readily exploitable by the federal government.

The bill requires local law enforcement to get the approval of elected local representatives before acquiring surveillance technology. Before that vote, law enforcement agencies like police departments, sheriffs, and district attorneys must propose a set of written rules that explain their plans for the technology as wells as limits on its use and collection and sharing of data. Next, residents get a chance to weigh in on these rules and the proposal at a public meeting. If a city council or board of supervisors doesn’t approve a proposal, law enforcement cannot acquire or use that technology.

As surveillance technology becomes more powerful and easily available, California needs this bill now more than ever — and hopefully other states will follow its lead. Often bankrolled by federal funds, technologies like automatic license plate readers, drones, and social media surveillance systems have invaded our communities without our knowledge or input. These technologies collect information about our whereabouts and other sensitive details about our lives, and they are frequently turned on local activists.

Warrantless surveillance not only feeds databases that can be abused, it leads to real-world harms that disproportionately affect immigrants, people of color, and Muslim-Americans. Many law enforcement agencies have used social media monitoring products advertised as tools to track activists of color. For example, San Jose police used it to spy on protesters during a visit by India’s prime minister. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department monitored the residents of Compton using high-powered aerial surveillance. San Francisco police stopped and held an elderly Black woman at gunpoint — all because an automatic license plate reader improperly identified her car as a stolen vehicle. Elsewhere, police have used that same technology to monitor mosque visitors.

Federal immigration authorities are increasingly seeking to exploit these local surveillance systems, often without local knowledge. Earlier this year, for example, news broke that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had obtained access to a database operated by a company called Vigilant, which hosts license plate location data collected by local law enforcement agencies across the United States.

The ACLU of Northern California has sued to learn more about this arrangement, and some California communities have stood up and rejected this company’s technology. However, these systems continue to prowl cities and rural areas, collecting data about immigrants while they’re driving to work, running errands, or bringing their kids to school. ICE should not be able to exploit this data to target and separate families. SB 1186 gives communities statewide a way to ensure that local law enforcement is not facilitating practices like this.

Communities such as Santa Clara County, Oakland, Davis, and Berkeley have already passed ordinances that require law enforcement agencies to be transparent about surveillance proposals, submit those proposals to a vote by elected leaders, and write strict rules for how the technologies can be used. SB 1186 — which would be the first statewide law of its kind — would ensure that all Californians can benefit from these important reforms. Community voices must be heard if surveillance proposals are on the table.

This bill is a piece of a larger movement. Localities across the country are taking part in a national campaign called Community Control Over Police Surveillance (CCOPS), a reform effort spearheaded by 17 organizations, including the ACLU, aimed at putting local residents and elected officials in charge of decisions about surveillance technology. To date, local CCOPS efforts have sprouted up in more than 20 cities, including New York and St. Louis.

After passing through the California Senate, the California Assembly Appropriations Committee will decide this bill’s fate in the next week. If you live in California, contact your state assembly representative and encourage them to support SB 1186 across the finish line.

This will not be an easy fight. Law enforcement agencies strongly oppose this bill’s transparency and oversight mechanisms. But public safety in the digital era requires that elected representatives and community members have a voice in important decisions like these.


          Compact Energy and Delay-Aware Authentication, by Muslum Ozgur Ozmen and Rouzbeh Behnia and Attila A. Yavuz      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Authentication and integrity are fundamental security services that are critical for any viable system. However, some of the emerging systems (e.g., smart grids, aerial drones) are delay-sensitive, and therefore their safe and reliable operation requires delay-aware authentication mechanisms. Unfortunately, the current state-of-the-art authentication mechanisms either incur heavy computations or lack scalability for such large and distributed systems. Hence, there is a crucial need for digital signature schemes that can satisfy the requirements of delay-aware applications. In this paper, we propose a new digital signature scheme that we refer to as Compact Energy and Delay-aware Authentication (CEDA). In CEDA, signature generation and verification only require a small-constant number of multiplications and Pseudo Random Function (PRF) calls. Therefore, it achieves the lowest end-to-end delay among its counterparts. Our implementation results on an ARM processor and commodity hardware show that CEDA has the most efficient signature generation on both platforms, while offering a fast signature verification. Among its delay-aware counterparts, CEDA has a smaller private key with a constant-size signature. All these advantages are achieved with the cost of a larger public key. This is a highly favorable trade-off for applications wherein the verifier is not memory-limited. We open-sourced our implementation of CEDA to enable its broad testing and adaptation.

          Computing’s Hippocratic oath is here      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Computing professionals are on the front lines of almost every aspect of the modern world. They’re involved in the response when hackers steal the personal information of hundreds of thousands of people from a large corporation. Their work can protect–or jeopardize–critical infrastructures, such as electrical grids and transportation lines. And the algorithms they write may determine who gets a job, who is approved for a bank loan, or who gets released on bail.

Technological professionals are the first, and last, lines of defense against the misuse of technology. Nobody else understands the systems as well, and nobody else is in a position to protect specific data elements or ensure that the connections between one component and another are appropriate, safe, and reliable. As the role of computing continues its decades-long expansion in society, computer scientists are central to what happens next.

That’s why the world’s largest organization of computer scientists and engineers, the Association for Computing Machinery, of which I am president, has issued a new code of ethics for computing professionals. And it’s why ACM is taking other steps to help technologists engage with ethical questions.

Serving the public interest

A code of ethics is more than just a document on paper. There are hundreds of examples of the core values and standards to which every member of a field is held–including for organist guilds and outdoor-advertising associations. The world’s oldest code of ethics is also its most famous: The Hippocratic oath that medical doctors take, promising to care responsibly for their patients.

I suspect that one reason for the Hippocratic oath’s fame is how personal medical treatment can be, with people’s lives hanging in the balance. It’s important for patients to feel confident their medical caregivers have their interests firmly in mind.

Technology is, in many ways, similarly personal. In modern society, computers, software, and digital data are everywhere. They’re visible in laptops and smartphones, social media and video conferencing, but they’re also hidden inside the devices that help manage people’s daily lives, from thermostats to timers on coffeemakers. New developments in autonomous vehicles, sensor networks, and machine learning mean computing will play an even more central role in everyday life in coming years.

A changing profession

As the creators of these technologies, computing professionals have helped usher in the new and richly vibrant rhythms of modern life. But as computers become increasingly interwoven into the fabric of life, we in the profession must personally recommit to serving society through ethical conduct.

ACM’s last code of ethics was adopted in 1992, when many people saw computing work as purely technical. The internet was in its infancy and people were just beginning to understand the value of being able to aggregate and distribute information widely. It would still be years before artificial intelligence and machine learning had applications outside research labs.

Today, technologists’ work can affect the lives and livelihoods of people in ways that may be unintended, even unpredictable. I’m not an ethicist by training, but it’s clear to me that anyone in today’s computing field can benefit from guidance on ethical thinking and behavior.

Updates to the code

ACM’s new ethics code has several important differences from the 1992 version. One has to do with unintended consequences. In the 1970s and 1980s, technologists built software or systems whose effects were limited to specific locations or circumstances. But over the past two decades, it has become clear that as technologies evolve, they can be applied in contexts very different from the original intent.

For example, computer vision research has led to ways of creating 3D models of objects–and people–based on 2D images, but it was never intended to be used in conjunction with machine learning in surveillance or drone applications. The old ethics code asked software developers to be sure a program would actually do what they said it would. The new version also exhorts developers to explicitly evaluate their work to identify potentially harmful side effects or potential for misuse.

Another example has to do with human interaction. In 1992, most software was being developed by trained programmers to run operating systems, databases, and other basic computing functions. Today, many applications rely on user interfaces to interact directly with a potentially vast number of people. The updated code of ethics includes more detailed considerations about the needs and sensitivities of very diverse potential users–including discussing discrimination, exclusion, and harassment.

More and more software is being developed to run with little or no input or human understanding, producing analytical results to guide decision making, such as when to approve bank loans. The outputs can have completely unintended social effects, skewed against whole classes of people–as in recent cases where data-mining predictions of who would default on a loan showed biases against people who seek longer-term loans or live in particular areas. There are also the dangers of what are called “false positives,” when a computer links two things that shouldn’t be connected–as when facial-recognition software recently matched members of Congress to criminals’ mug shots. The revised code exhorts technologists to take special care to avoid creating systems with the potential to oppress or disenfranchise whole groups of people.

Living ethics in technology

The code was revised over the course of more than two years, including ACM members and people outside the organization and even outside the computing and technological professions. All of these perspectives made the code better. For example, a government-employed weapons designer asked whether that job inherently required violating the code; the wording was changed to clarify that systems must be “consistent with the public good.”

Now that the code is out, there’s more to do. ACM has created a repository for case studies, showing how ethical thinking and the guidelines can be applied in a variety of real-world situations. The group’s “Ask An Ethicist” blog and video series invites the public to submit scenarios or quandaries as they arise in practice. Word is also underway to develop teaching modules so that concepts can be integrated into computing education from primary school through university.

Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. My personal favorite was the comment from a young programmer after reading the code: “Now I know what to tell my boss if he asks me to do something like that again.”

The ACM Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct begins with the statement “Computing professionals’ actions change the world.” We don’t know if our code will last as long as the Hippocratic oath. But it highlights how important it is that the global computing community understands the impact our work has–and takes seriously our obligation to the public good.

La estúpida grieta y los estúpidos ciudadanos Por Ricardo Alfredo Rey - 09/08/2018 En busca del “fondo común de inversión ciudadana” Al observar este mundo maravilloso de las redes informáticas me doy cuenta que en mi hermoso país se abrió una gran grieta entre los ciudadanos, unos son extremadamente “K” y otros son extremadamente “M”. Me parece muy bien si las diferencias fuesen ideológicas adoptando distintas formas de administrar la cosa pública, algunos pueden ser más estatistas y otros menos, a algunos les puede agradar que la mayoría de las empresas sean privadas y a otros que haya más intervención del estado, etc. Pero esa grieta tiene un límite y es el manejo de los dineros públicos, porque el dinero del estado no es otra cosa que la suma del aporte que hacemos todos los ciudadanos con nuestros impuestos. Ese, como yo lo denomino “fondo común de inversión ciudadana”, lo ponemos en manos de unos administradores ocasionales a los que elegimos por votación, y a nivel nacional, provincial o municipal les pagamos un sueldo para que con probidad y eficiencia utilicen esos recursos para el bien común. Si alguno de estos administradores se apropia indebidamente de esos recursos públicos para su beneficio y nos quita a la ciudadanía la posibilidad de tener mejores escuelas, mejores hospitales, mayor seguridad, etc.… ¿importa si es K o M? Es aquí donde entra a tallar la estupidez ciudadana, nos peleamos y discutimos hasta llegar a la violencia defendiendo sin sentido a los que nos robaron o nos siguen robando nuestro dinero mientras los “señores”K, M y un sinnúmero de otros personajes ya están planeando como seguir “administrando” nuestro fondo común de inversión. Es de suma importancia que los ciudadanos dejemos las pasiones de lado y defendamos nuestro dinero y observemos detenidamente el accionar de todos los políticos, inclinándonos hacia el honesto y el probo y exigiendo a la justicia que juzgue y condene, sin distinción del partido político al que pertenezcan, a todos “los ladrones de guante blanco” que tanto daño le hicieron y le hacen a nuestro país

          Twig Harper & Bill Nace - Live at Dreamland (Open Mouth, 2018) ****      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Nick Metzger

Live at Dreamland is a writhing, oozing, viscous specimen of electronic free improvisation by two of the Northeast-US’s true maestros. I first became aware of guitarist Bill Nace through his Vampire Belt collaboration with Chris Corsano. YouTube videos of their early shows prompted me to mail-order their first two self-produced CDRs and I’ve been a fan of their post-Blue Humans style clamor ever since. Besides Vampire Belt (and various Vampire Belt + 1 configurations), Nace has worked with a diverse cast of talent ranging from his collaborations with the Italian psych jazz powerhouse Jooklo Duo to Body/Head, to his free guitar duo with Kim Gordon, to his collaboration with the poet and writer Charles Plymell on Apocalypse Rose. He also runs Open Mouth Records, which has released fantastic music in ultra-limited editions for well over a decade now. Contemporary psychonaut Twig Harper (formerly of Nautical Almanac) is originally from the same 90's noise/total music scene that produced Wolf Eyes and Andrew W.K. among others. Following his relocation to West Baltimore he established Tarantula Hill which hosts local bands and serves as the headquarters for his isolation tank business. If you’re not familiar with Harper’s work, his Intuitive American Esoterica trilogy is a great place to start. The two men toured together last year, this record being a documentation of their performance at Louisville’s sadly-since-closed Dreamland venue (recorded by the most-affable Tim Barnes).

The piece begins with a swelling tape loop over which percussive noises and disembodied moans intermingle. Bowed guitar joins as the vocalizations intensify and are stretched out and modulated via Harper’s homemade electronics into an impenetrable kaleidoscope of sound. About half way through the first side the piece slows and becomes more introspective, alternating between drone and silence. Nace then goes in a more direct path, providing metallic popping noises and string scrapes. Harper runs eerie swells over which his electronics jot out their weird logic. Low tones close the first side over a wash of tape delay and feedback. The second half finds our heroes beginning with what sounds like tape loops of breaking glass being eaten by the tape machine. Shaking bells create a ritualistic vibe over which Harper pushes the delay feedback into the red. All of this action throws up a miasma of residual sounds that builds up into a din before succeeding into a section of contemplative drone and scattered echoing horrors. The guitar scrapings coalesce with the specters that Harper has conjured, whirring and humming into silence. Harper provides aftershocks in the form of several jarring electronic spasms, bringing the set to a close.

Harper and Nace are an interesting pairing given their respective sound palettes, and it’s a little hard to discern who is doing what on this recording at times but that’s not really important. What is important is that it’s a nicely done, well recorded album that documents an interesting coupling of musicians, performing in a fantastic venue, during its final days. RIP Dreamland, you are sorely missed.

Islamic Operatives Use Soviet Tactics to Target Conservatives

When operatives in the Islamic Movement meet with police chiefs, elected officials, FBI Directors, business leaders, Pastors, Rabbis and others, they portray themselves as friendly, but they are working to recruit and use them, much as U.S. government counterintelligence operatives recruit foreign assets.
These jihadi operations may take months or years to develop, but the benefits of having an influential American official working for jihadis is a major victory for the Islamic Movement.
Examples of successful penetration operations include:
President Clinton’s Islamic Advisor Abdurahman Alamoudi, who created the Muslim Chaplain Program for the Department of Defense and met with Mr. Clinton more than any other muslim in America, was an Al Qaeda financier who is now in federal prison.
Senator Richard Durbin’s go-to guy for all things Islamic prior to his hearing on the civil rights of muslims in America was Mohamed Magid and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).  Magid was the leader of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) which was identified by the Department of Justice as a Muslim Brotherhood organization and a financial support arm for Hamas leaders and Hamas groups overseas.
The Islamic Movement also identifies conservative threats to their Movement and targets them for destruction, ensuring they lose their influence.
When Irving, Texas Mayor Beth Van Duyne publicly decried the Sharia Courts in Irving, she was targeted by muslim leaders.  Several months later the Clock Boy Operation was launched against her.  Democrats attacked her for her “civil rights” failures in the incident, and Republicans called for a review of the zero tolerance policy in incidents of this nature.  Mayor Van Duyne was left standing alone as Islamic leaders planned.
Most Patriots aware of Milwaukee’s Sheriff David Clarke were drawn to him for his outspoken call for law and order, strong stance on national defense, and for boldly stating America needs to police muslim communities.
Sheriff Clarke was also considered for positions inside the Trump Administration.
In walks Hedieh Mirahmadi.  A classic honey trap.
Dr. Hedieh Mirahmadi grew up a shia muslim of Iranian decent who later converted to sunni Islam.  Mirahmadi is an attorney with a degree in Islamic doctrine from the As-Sunna Foundation.  She is the founder of the World Organization for Resource and Development and Education (WORDE), and the former Secretary General of the Islamic Supreme Council of America.
Red flags about Ms. Mirahmadi include her close working relationships with Muslim Brotherhood organizations and leaders like Salam al Marayati, participation in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) initiative, and the fact she publishes articles about Islamic doctrine (sharia) that are patently false despite the fact she has a degree in the subject.
Most notably, Ms. Mirahmadi works with federal agencies and police organizations around the United States to discuss “extremism” and the Muslim Brotherhood.  Yet, none of the groups with whom she works have demonstrated any level of understanding of the jihadi’s doctrine – sharia – nor the Muslim Brotherhood network and their modus operandi.
In fact, the agencies with which Mirahmadi work, have a completely counter-factual understanding of sharia and the Muslim Brotherhood.
So, the Islamic Movement targeted Sheriff David Clarke and sent Mirahmadi in.  To demonstrate the effectiveness of this operation, UTT offers the following:
Sheriff Clarke went from calling for police to patrol muslim neighborhoods 18 months ago to recently calling people on social media speaking truth about Islam “racists.”
When articles written by investigative journalist Laura Loomer were published a year ago about Hedieh Mirahmadi’s questionable background, Sheriff Clarke publicly attacked and mocked Loomer.
This week Sheriff David Clarke admitted he was duped, and openly stated Hedieh Mirahmadi is a Muslim Brotherhood operative.
The lesson for everyone reading this article is that David Clarke is one of many Patriots who have been duped by Muslim Brotherhood operatives acting on behalf of our Islamic foes, even if they are not intentionally doing so.
Twenty years Abdurahman Alamoudi was the “pillar of the Islamic community in Washington, D.C.” and turned out to be an Al Qaeda operative.
After 9/11, Anwar al Awlaki was considered the “new face of Islam in America” and gave presentations at the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol, but turned out to be an Al Qaeda operative killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011.
In 2005, FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Field Office Mike Rolince gave Mohamed Magid an award, and in 2016 FBI Director James Comey presented Magid with the FBI Director’s Award.
Mohamed Magid was the President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), identified by the Department of Justice as a Muslim Brotherhood organization which seeks to overthrow the U.S. government and establish an Islamic State.  Evidence entered into the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history (US v HLF, Northern District of Texas, 2008) reveals ISNA provides financial support to Hamas organizations and Hamas leaders overseas.
Hamas is a designated foreign terrorist organization.
The threat from the Islamic Movement in the United States manifests itself primarily as an espionage and counterintelligence threat, not merely as a “terrorist” threat.
It is high time the U.S. government treats Islamic spies working to destroy America the same way it treated the Rosenbergs.

          High Tech Drone Scarecrows Can Make Airports Safer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

By Alexandra Ulmer

CARACAS (Reuters) - Deeply unpopular Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro looked keen to project himself as fully in charge of the crisis-ridden military, long a powerbroker, when he addressed its National Guard on Saturday.

One of the main avenues in the capital Caracas was sealed off, commemorative videos for the National Guard's 81st anniversary flashed on a big screen, and a suited Maduro with a yellow, blue and red presidential sash spoke surrounded by the military's top brass.

But just when the leftist leader was wrapping up by vowing OPEC member Venezuela's stricken economy would recover, his wife Cilia Flores scanned the sky, seemingly alarmed.

An explosion rocked the event close to the presidential stage, according to the government and three witnesses.

Maduro's wife recoiled, the camera shook, the state TV broadcast's audio was cut, and the camera abruptly panned out to hundreds of soldiers in sharp formation. But the image of martial lockstep was quickly shattered when a second drone hit a building nearby, as scores of soldiers scurried away before the live transmission ended and switched to reruns about the South American country's car census.

"This incident does make Maduro appear vulnerable but the truth remains that his circle has the power to crack down on enemies because they still control all the levers of power," said Raul Gallegos, associate director with the consultancy Control Risks.

"Whatever frailty comes across is compensated by the excuse Maduro now has to crack down on his internal enemies real or perceived," Gallegos said.

The incident failed to generate any wave of spontaneous support from traditional government backers, many of whom are reeling from hyperinflation, frequent water and power cuts, and food shortages.

Still, the government's adversaries warned of a possible crackdown after Maduro accused opponents of seeking to assassinate him with drones. Six people were detained as suspects, Venezuelan officials said on Sunday.

The suspects launched two drones laden with explosives over the outdoor rally, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said. One was "diverted" by security forces while the second fell on its own and hit an apartment building, Reverol said.

Maduro initially blamed outgoing Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and residents of the U.S. state of Florida for the attack. Colombia's Foreign Ministry in response said it "emphatically rejected" Maduro's accusations.

Venezuelan cartoonist EDO published a drawing showing terrified soldiers fleeing under the tagline "Run Forrest, the Empire is invading us!", in allusion to the film 'Forrest Gump' where Tom Hanks' character jogs across the United States.

"The stampede of the military personnel, broadcast live, leaves the armed forces and the military top brass looking very bad," said Hebert Garcia Plaza, a former general and member of Maduro's administration who turned on the government.

Open calls for military intervention have grown after massive anti-government protests last year failed to unseat Maduro and he was re-elected in a May vote widely decried as a sham.

Scores of soldiers have been detained on accusations of conspiring against Maduro or deserting, as they too sometimes struggle to eat three square meals a day.

Last year, a rogue Venezuelan police officer hijacked a helicopter and fired at government buildings in what he said was an action against a dictator. The officer was hunted down and killed by Venezuelan forces.

But in public, the top brass remains fiercely loyal to Maduro, a 55-year-old former bus driver and union leader who unlike his predecessor Hugo Chavez does not hail from the military.

As the economic crisis has worsened and his popularity has slipped, Maduro has handed the military sway over the lucrative mining, oil, and food import sectors to help keep his grip on power.

A little-known group called the "National Movement of Soldiers in T-shirts" claimed responsibility for Saturday's explosion. The group, which describes itself as uniting members of "the resistance" to Maduro, said it had planned to fly two drones but that snipers shot them down.

Maduro can take some solace in that a half-dozen bodyguards dashed on stage to cover him with bulletproof panels. A voice was heard saying "let's go, my leader" right before he was rushed away.

"That drone was coming for me but there was a shield of love," Maduro said on Saturday night. "I am sure I will live for many more years."

          Drones con cámaras térmicas trabajan de noche en la extinción del incendio de Valencia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Los trabajos de extinción del incendio de Valencia continúan las 24 horas y con el uso de drones equipados con cámaras térmicas para los vuelos nocturnos, según han informado desde el Consorcio Provincial de Bomberos. El fuego mantiene dos partes activas, una en la zona sur (Llutxent) y otra en la Marxuquera, en Gandía, y durante la pasada noche del miércoles no ha registrado evolución. En las últimas horas han estado trabajando los medios terrestres en esas dos zonas "sin descanso", ayudados por la lluvia que cayó, aunque poco intensa, y la humedad alta, así como por drones que forman parte del operativo de extinción y que han sobrevolado todo el área del incendio. Los drones han realizado un reconocimiento de puntos calientes con cámara térmica coordinados con la unidad de prevención de incendios forestales de la Conselleria de Agricultura de la Generalitat, para determinar las temperaturas que alcanzan, por si fuera necesaria la intervención de los bomberos. Para este jueves se espera una bajada importante de la humedad especialmente a partir de las 14 horas, con lo que las condiciones climatológicas podrían "endurecerse", según ha indicado el inspector jefe del Consorcio de Bomberos de Valencia, José Miguel Basset. Evaluar la evacuación A las 10.30 horas está prevista una reunión de coordinación de los servicios de extinción para analizar la evolución del incendio durante esta noche y adoptar las medidas en la estrategia de control, y también para evaluar si se mantiene la evacuación de las personas desalojadas, más de 2.600. Fuentes de Emergencias de la Generalitat han informado a Efe de que esta noche se ha trabajado sin complicaciones y ha sido tranquila para los servicios de lucha contra el incendio. En total 31 medios aéreos trabajan esta mañana del jueves en los trabajos de extinción del incendio forestal, que ha quemado ya 3.003 hectáreas, según la última estimación, de las comarcas de la Vall d'Albaida y La Safor y que afecta a seis términos municipales: Gandia, Llutxent, Ador, Quatretonda, Pinet y Barx. El Centre de Coordinación de Emergencias de la Generalitat ha establecido el fin de la preemergencia por tormentas nivel naranja en el interior norte y sur de la provincia de Valencia.

Pentagon to Spend Nearly $5M on Marine Corps Mission in the Philippines

Pentagon to Spend Nearly $5M on Marine Corps Mission in the Philippines by Todd South – Military Times

Despite a siege last year that retook a major city in the Philippines and killed an estimated 1,000 ISIS fighters, reducing their ranks to about 200 in the area, Pentagon spending on the military mission there has nearly tripled, according to a recent report.

And most of that money is being spent on running a fleet of drones to monitor terrorist activities while supporting ground patrols to clear out ongoing contested areas of the country.

Nearly $5 million is to fund the Marine Corps to “advise, plan and execute missions in support of Philippine counterterror operations,” according to the report.

The Lead Inspector General Report for Operation Inherent Resolve and Operation Pacific Eagle-Philippines covers April to June and details measures, reporting and progress of both operations aimed at defeating the Islamic State.

The Philippines operation uses mostly U.S. Special Operations Forces to train, advise and assist, especially with ISR assets, as the Philippine military continues to pursue remaining ISIS fighters after having cleared them from the provincial capital city of Marawi, which was seized by ISIS in September and held five months last year…

          Tòa án Tối cao Venezuela ra lệnh bắt cựu chủ tịch Quốc hội      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Dân biểu đối lập Juan Requesens nói chuyện với những người ủng hộ tại Caracas ngày 31/07/2018.

Tối cao Pháp viện Venezuela hôm qua 08/08/2018 đã ra lệnh bắt giữ ông Julio Borges, một trong những lãnh đạo phe đối lập và là cựu chủ tịch Quốc Hội, vì cáo buộc mưu toan ám sát tổng thống Nicolas Maduro bằng thiết bị bay không người điều khiển (drone) chứa chất nổ thứ Bảy tuần trước.

Ông Julio Borges đang sống lưu vong tại Bogota, thủ đô Colombia, không trả lời hãng tin Reuters. Ông bị cáo buộc trong bối cảnh chiến dịch trấn áp đối lập.

Trước đó vào ngày thứ Ba 7/8, dân biểu Juan Requesens, cựu lãnh tụ phong trào phản kháng của sinh viên, tố cáo tổng thống trước Quốc hội : « Rất nhiều người anh em của chúng tôi phải sống lưu vong, số khác đã về với đất vì bị sát hại, bị ông Nicolas sát hại (…). Hôm nay tôi có thể phát biểu trước quý vị, nhưng ngày mai thì không biết được ».

Không chờ đến hôm sau, ngay tối đó ông Requesens đã bị tình báo Venezuela bắt giữ, và chính quyền đến hôm qua mới xác nhận việc này. 

Phe đối lập Venezuela lo ngại chính quyền lợi dụng vụ ám sát hụt ông Nicolas Maduro để tung ra một đợt đàn áp mới. Công tố viên trưởng Tarak Saab hôm qua loan báo có 19 người liên can đến vụ tấn công trên, trong đó có 6 người đã bị bắt giam. Ông Saab không cho biết danh tính của các nghi can, cũng không đáp ứng yêu cầu cung cấp thêm thông tin.

Chính quyền Venezuela nói rằng hai thiết bị bay không người điều khiển mang theo chất nổ đã được phóng lên chiều thứ Bảy 4/8 khi ông Nicolas Maduro đang tham dự buổi lễ kỷ niệm ngày thành lập Vệ binh Quốc gia tại trung tâm Caracas. Chiếc đầu tiên bị lực lượng an ninh bắn hạ, chiếc thứ hai rơi xuống một tòa nhà.

Theo ông Maduro, phe cực hữu Venezuela có liên can đến vụ tấn công. Có 11 người được huấn luyện ở biên giới Colombia, và những người tài trợ cho « âm mưu ám sát » này ở Bogota và Florida đã hứa hẹn 50 triệu đô la, để đổi lấy sinh mạng của tổng thống Venezuela.

Guessing you guys never used a drone OR plastic explosive. First of all, what do drones do when they lose their signal to their encrypted controller? They don't get “disoriented”. Otherwise they'd be crashing all over the place in every country kids use them. They go to where they are programmed to go if they lose signal!....and where these went, says it was a staged attack as they apparently were flying back to where they came from when they were jammed which is opposite from where they were said to have come from...Oops! As far as plastic explosive? Can't be set off without a detonator creating a shockwave that goes through the PE. Can't be set off by fire, can't be set off by a bullet, can't be set off by a fall, that's kind of why you never hear of an unexpected explosion at a construction site. Lastly, they came from China. Who has close ties to China? The US? no...Colombia??? No. Maduro?? Owes them $120 billion! ...and lastly, lastly, it doesn't take a brain scientist to fake geolocation. Cuba's G2 which runs Venezuela's security forces, does it all the time. Interestingly, Maduro exposed more about how shoddy his protection rings are and his troops support level by having it video taped. Did the soldiers run towards him or run away. THAT said volumes! When the information points to something easy, take a deeper look.

          Venezuela Releases Evidence Tying Maduro Assassins to Colombia, US      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Following the attempt on Venezuelan Nicolas Maduro’s life with two explosive-laden drones on Saturday, the President promised to get to the bottom of the failed plot. Last night he showed that his government has learned some things at least, and Maduro says there is still more evidence to come.

Prior to releasing the evidence, Maduro announced that he would be showing off what Venezuelan security had found late Monday night. According to Maduro at the time the evidence backed up the initial claims he had made right after the assassination attempt that “there is sufficient evidence of the participation of the outgoing Colombian government of President Juan Manuel Santos.”

On Tuesday night Maduro presented the evidence to the people of Venezuela in a televised address. Much of what Maduro presented seems to confirm his conclusions and exposes a wider network of the forces plotting to end his life, and the Bolivarian revolution.


          Colombia’s Uribe to US Business Leaders: Help Take Out Maduro      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A video was revealed on Sunday showing former Colombian president, Alvaro Uribe, telling a group of listeners that Venezuelan soldiers need to “remove” President Nicolas Maduro from office.

The recording was released just 24 hours after two air drones carrying explosives were detonated above President Maduro and several members of his administration on Saturday as the head of state addressed a large crowd at the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard in Caracas. Maduro and other Venezuelan officials are saying that right-wing factions in the United States, Venezuelan and Colombia are behind the drone bombs.

In the video the former president and current Congress member says in English:

“I have said this in public, I have said that the Venezuelan soldiers need to remove that government (of Nicolas Maduro), not to establish a military government, but to call for a rapid transition, with democratic and transparent elections.

“When I say that the United States should help promote that decision, it is in private, for us,” Uribe tells the small group of U.S. business leaders at his home in the Rio Negro, Antioquia on Saturday, hours before the failed attack on Venezuela’s head of state.

          Footage 'shows moment drone bomb exploded over Presidential rally in Venezuela' as six 'terrorists and assassins' are arrested amid claims the incident was faked      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Footage has emerged which appears to show the moment a drone bomb detonated over a packed rally where Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was giving a speech.

The video, which has been widely shared by Venezuelan social media accounts, shows a single drone hovering above the military parade - before suddenly exploding into a fireball.

Venuzuelan officials have claimed dissidents used two M600 drones, each carrying 2lb of C4 explosive. One of the drones was allegedly set to explode above the president while the other was to detonate directly in front of him.

Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the military managed to knock one of the drones off-course electronically and the other crashed into an apartment building two streets away from where Mr Maduro was speaking to the hundreds of troopsl.

Gold Prices Are Soaring In Venezuela

By Frank Holmes - Aug 07, 2018, 9:20 AM CDT

Last month in Venezuela’s capital city of Caracas, a cup of coffee would have set you back 2 million bolivars. That’s up from only 2,300 bolivars 12 months ago, meaning the price of a cup of joe has jumped nearly 87,000 percent, according to Bloomberg’s Café Con Leche Index. And you thought Starbucks was expensive.

But that was July. Prices in Venezuela are doubling roughly every 18 days. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) now projects inflation to hit an astronomical 1 million percent by the end of this year. This puts the beleaguered Latin American country on the same slippery path as Zimbabwe a decade ago and Germany in the 1920s, when a wheelbarrow full of marks was barely enough to get you a loaf of bread.

Venezuela’s socialist president Nicolas Maduro—who only this past weekend survived an assassination attempt involving several explosive-laden drones—announced recently that the country plans to rein in hyperinflation by lopping off five zeroes from its currency. If you recall, Zimbabwe similarly tried to combat soaring prices of its own by issuing a cartoonish $100 trillion banknote—which in 2009 was still not enough to buy a bus ticket in the capital of Harare.

Without structural governmental reforms, a new bolivar is just as unlikely to steady Venezuela’s skyrocketing inflation or remedy its crumbling economy.

So where does this put gold? At some point, hyperinflation gets so ludicrously out of control that discussing exchange rates becomes pointless. But as of July 30, an ounce of the yellow metal would have gone for 211 million bolivars—an increase of more than 3.1 million percent from just the beginning of the year.

My point in bringing this up is to reinforce the importance of gold’s Fear Trade, which says that demand for the yellow metal rises when inflation threatens to destroy a nation’s currency—as it’s doing right now in Venezuela. A Venezuelan family that had the prudence to store some of its wealth in gold would be in a much better position today to survive or escape President Maduro’s corrupt, far-left regime.

In extreme cases like this, gold could literally help save lives.

Such was the case following the fall of Saigon in 1975. If not for gold, many South Vietnamese families might not have managed to escape the country. A seat on one of the thousands of fleeing boats reportedly went for eight or 10 taels of gold per adult, four or five taels per child. (A tael is slightly more than an ounce.) Gold was their passport. Thanks to the precious metal, tens of thousands of Vietnamese “boat people,” as they’re now known, were able to start new lives in the U.S., Canada, Australia and other developed countries.

Venezuela’s Once Prosperous Economy Destroyed by Corruption and Mismanagement

But back to Venezuela. Amid the corruption and mismanagement, the only thing helping the country pay its bills right now is gold. Two years ago, it had the world’s 16th largest gold reserves. Today it stands at number 26 as it’s sold off more than half its holdings since 2010. While countries such as China and Russia continue to add to their holdings, Venezuela has been the world’s largest seller of gold for the past two years.

It’s hard to remember now, but as recently as 2001, Venezuela was the most prosperous country in all of South America. Like Zimbabwe, the OPEC nation is rich in natural resources, home to the world’s largest oil reserves and what’s believed to be the fourth largest gold mine. Oil exports account for virtually all of its export revenue.

In 2016, Venezuela was the third largest exporter of crude to the U.S. following Canada and Saudi Arabia, but with output in freefall, this is changing rapidly. For the first time ever in February, Colombia sold more crude oil to the U.S. than its eastern neighbor did. And in June, Venezuela’s state-owned oil and gas company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), informed at least eight foreign clients that it would be unable to meet supply commitments. According to GlobalData, production is on track to fall to only 1 million barrels per day by 2019, down from 3 million a day in 2011, meaning the petrostate might soon have nothing left to deliver.

President Maduro now has the ignoble distinction of reigning over an economic recession that rivals the very worst in modern history. Last month, the IMF forecast that the country’s real gross domestic product (GDP) would fall 18 percent this year—the third straight year of double-digit declines.

A mass exodus of young, working-age Venezuelans, many of them college-educated, is unlikely to help. Estimates of the number of people who have fled the country in the past two years alone range from 1.7 million to as high as 4 million.

Their escape is no easy task, as numerous international airlines, citing rampant crime and a lack of electricity, have canceled all flights in and out of Caracas. The only U.S. carrier still operating in the country is American Airlines, which offers a single daily flight from the nation’s capital to Miami. Just two years ago, there were as many as 40 nonstop American flights, not to mention those of rival carriers, between the two cities—a sign of just how dramatic and swift Maduro’s mismanagement has been in crippling Venezuela’s once-robust economy.

The Diversification Benefits of Gold

The gold bears were on top last week, with the metal trading as low as $1,205 on Thursday. That’s the closest it’s come to dipping below $1,200 since February 2017. Friday’s lower-than-expected jobs report gave gold a modest boost, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a fourth straight week of price declines.

In times like this, it’s important to remember that, according to gold’s DNA of volatility, it’s a non-event for the metal to close up or down 1 percent at the end of each session, 2 percent for the 10-day trading period. And guess what? The S&P 500 Index has the same level of volatility.

Ten days ago, gold was trading just under $1,230 an ounce, or 0.6 percent more than today. The math is sound.

It’s also worth remembering that gold has traditionally had a low to negative correlation with other assets such as equities. This is why many investors over the years have used it as a portfolio diversifier.

Case in point: On June 26, suffered its worst single-day decline since the company went public in 2012. Its stock plunged 19 percent, erasing some $120 billion in market capitalization—the most ever in history for a single trading session.

Gold, meanwhile, held relatively steady, slipping only 0.62 percent.

          ArduRover on real competition R/C 1/10 car on real circuit: missions. FAR FROM WORKING      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Hi.

Having last firmware V3.4.2 installed (sawtooth mag curves orientation above correct) I did some tests, with the following conclusions:
-Difficult starts continue. At mission start car goes left or right, and knocks the fences.
-Occasional deviations elsewhere.
-Tried with three (ext/ext/int) and two (ext/ext) compasses, without difference. I will later post the logs, so it can be seen if the internal compass is affected by the motor. External compasses are HMC5883L and QMC5883.
-Tried the “learning” trick, driving previously in Manual, Auto and Steering. This indeed worked, and the car didn’t deviate at start.
-I have to check if just after reset (before any movement) and with GPS lock, the initial yaw indication is correct. If I try at home (without GPS) it is correct.

The COMPASS_AUTO_ROT parameter is very promising. I did what follows.

COMPASS_AUTO_ROT doesn’t appear in V3.4.2 or trying beta (which also shows now V3.4.2), so I flashed V3.5.0-dev.

Initial messages:
u-blox 1 HW: 00080000 SW: EXT CORE 3.01 (107900)
PX4v2 00320046 35365118 37353630
PX4: bb30641a NuttX: 1472b16c
ArduRover V3.5.0-dev (5ad1dee2)

After reset from Mission Planner:
u-blox 1 HW: 00080000 SW: EXT CORE 3.01 (107900)
EKF2 IMU0 tilt alignment complete
EKF2 IMU1 tilt alignment complete
EKF2 IMU1 initial yaw alignment complete
EKF2 IMU0 initial yaw alignment complete
GPS 2: detected as u-blox at 115200 baud
GPS 1: detected as u-blox at 115200 baud
RCInput: decoding PX4IO_PPM
Ready to drive
Initialising APM
Beginning INS calibration. Do not move vehicle
<startup_ground> Ground start
Barometer calibration complete
Initialising APM
so even the two GPS’s are detected, a line:
u-blox 1 HW: 00080000 SW: EXT CORE 3.01 (107900)
is missing.

Parameter COMPASS_AUTO_ROT appeared, with value 2 (correct external compasses orientation if wrong).

But when trying to calibrate the compasses (both the three ext/ext/int, and the two ext/ext) the second external one indication didn’t advance, as if the QMC5883 were not recognized in this version.
Anyhow, when the first external and the internal compasses calibration finished, these messages appeared:
Mag(2) good orientation: 0 7.5
Mag(0) good orientation: 10 1.0
From the documentation:
0 None
10 Roll180Yaw90
Mag(0) should be the first external compass, and Mag(2) the internal Pixhawk one, so it seems that the external recognized one is well oriented Roll180Yaw90 (chip towards sky (dot back right), image C) and D), X forward, Y left), as in above photo with pins pointing right, and the other external one is equally oriented.

If pins point forward (photo above, chip orientation as GPS/compass drone photo beside), image B), with X pointing left and Y pointing backwards, orientation should be Roll180, but pins are less protected so I rotated the compasses.


          Bricked Sky Viper Transmitter      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Hello. I have just started using a Sky Viper Scout yesterday and that same day, the transmitter malfunctioned. It would connect to the drone perfectly fine but, when I gave any input, the drone wouldn’t respond. I even checked the motors through the calibration menu and, they were working as usual. I then decided to upgrade the firmware of the transmitter through the web interface and when it was “completed”, it had bricked the transmitter. When I turn the controller on, it just shows a green light on top of the “normal mode” button and there are no tones or sounds. Pressing any button on the transmitter doesn’t change a thing. I can’t even turn the transmitter off with the power button ( I need to manually remove the batteries). I checked the status of the controller on the web interface and, it’s status was “off”. I have already tried to power it on while holding the video button and holding the left joystick in the down position to check if I can unbrick the transmitter with this solution, Unbricking a SkyViper transmitter but, it didn’t power on as it should. The unfortunate thing is that I really do not want to send the transmitter to Sky Viper because I want to use it now (because school is about to begin so, I won’t have time to spend flying drones) and sending it in will take a while. Any feedback or solutions would be greatly appreciated! Have a great day!


          Acusados del «atentado» a Maduro fueron denunciados como «infiltrados» chavistas en la Resistencia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Los datos aportados por las autoridades de Venezuela sobre el supuesto atentado a Nicolás Maduro sigue planteando incógnitas. Dos acusados por el régimen de estar directamente implicados en la organizadores del presunto ataque con drones durante un desfile militar en la avenida Bolívar de Caracas el pasado sábado, Rayder Russo y Osman Delgado, habían sido señalados por el policía rebelde Óscar Pérez de ser unos «infiltrados» del chavismo. De acuerdo con el resultado de las investigaciones que Maduro ha ofrecido hasta el momento, Russo y Delgado habrían tenido un papel clave en la organización de la logística y de la financiación de la operación. Pero, además, serían dos figuras importantes dentro de la argumentación oficial para sostener la acusación de que Colombia y Estados Unidos estuvieron detrás del «atentado». En este sentido, según el mandatario venezolano, Rayder Russo, alias Pico, es un protegido por el Gobierno colombiano y tiene un expediente abierto por varios cargos relacionados con el movimiento de la Resistencia. En el caso de Osman Delgado Tabosky, «Jeremías», residiría en Miami (Florida), de donde Maduro viene sosteniendo desde el sábado que procedía la financiación del supuesto ataque. En este sentido, Maduro anunció que Venezuela pedirá la extradición de ambos a Colombia y Estados Unidos, respectivamente. Pero un mensaje publicado en Twitter el 1 de diciembre de 2017 por el inspector de policía sublevado Óscar Pérez plantea nuevas dudas. El tuit alertaba de «infiltrados del Régimen dentro de las Filas de la Resistencia». En concreto, indicaba que «Rayder Russo alías “Salomón/Teniente Pico” y Osman Delgado Tabosky alías “Jeremías” hacen vídeos para beneficio propio, fueron descubiertos y ahora venden información al Gobierno». #ATENCION Infiltrados del Régimen dentro de las Filas de la #Resistencia RAYDER RUSSO alías "Salomón/Teniente Pico" y OSMAN DELGADO TABOSKY alías "Jeremías", HACEN VÍDEOS PARA BENEFICIO PROPIO, fueron descubiertos y ahora venden información al Gobierno. pic.twitter.com/8jNDkZLwlu— Oscar Perez (@oscaromshanti) December 1, 2017Asalto al fuerte Pamaracay Osman Delgado había sido señalado por el director de la inteligencia venezolana (Sebin), Gustavo González López, como autor intelectual del asalto al parque de armas del fuerte Pamaracay, en el estado Carabobo, el 6 de agosto de 2017, que se bautizó como operación David. El autor del citado mensaje en Twiitter, Óscar Pérez, fue el inspector del Cuerpo de Investigaciones Científicas Penales y Criminalísticas (CICPC) que en junio de 2017 atrajo la atención mundial al robar un helicóptero para sobrevolar las sedes del Tribunal Supremo de Justicia y del Ministerio del Interior y que llamó a salir a las calles contra Nicolás Maduro. Pérez acabaría ejecutado en una operación de las fuerzas del régimen el pasado enero. Además de Russo y Delgado hay otras 17 personas relacionadas con el «atentado», según el fiscal general del régimen, Tarek William Saab. Entre ellos figuran dos diputados, el expresidente de la Asamblea Nacional Julio Borges, y Juan Requesens, que ha sido detenido por el Sebin. La Asamblea Nacional Constituyente –el órgano oficialista creado por Maduro para anular al parlamento legítimo– levantó el pasado miércoles la inmunidad de ambos legisladores. Lucha de facciones ABC supo por una fuente extraoficial, que pidió el anonimato, que el «atentado» fue obra de un grupo interno del régimen, ligado a una de las facciones que se disputan el poder, para enviar un mensaje a Maduro, servir de excusa para arremeter contra dirigentes opositores y distraer la atención de la crisis humanitaria. Esta fuente apunta que sin una complicidad interna no habrían podido sobrevolar los dos drones la avenida Bolívar y que los equipos voladores no llevaban suficiente carga letal de explosivos, sino «apenas 30 gramos de C4 o pólvora» como para asustar y crear pánico. El régimen aprovechó el atentado para magnificarlo y arremeter contra la oposición. En estos días el Tribunal Supremo en el exilio juzga en Bogotá a Maduro por corrupción y ningún medio lo destacó por estar ocupado con el atentado. El presidente de la Constituyente chavista, Diosdado Cabello, ha dirigido la ofensiva contra los dirigentes opositores advirtiendo de que «la justicia viene con todo». Antes de despojar de inmunidad a Borges y Requesens, se le había retirado a los diputados María Corina Machado, Mercedes Aranguren, Freddy Guevara y Germán Ferrer.

          Desentendida de la tragedia de Moreno, dice que no irá por la presidencia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

La gobernadora bonaerense María Eugenia Vidal

Con respecto a la tragedia de la escuela en Moreno, donde explotó una garrafa y murieron dos personas, la gobernadora dijo que no era su culpa. Se trata de un hecho que llegó luego del escándalo de los aportantes truchos para continuar una racha negativa para Cambiemos. En un intento por mejorar esa imagen que viene en caída, paseó por algunos medios periodísticos dando su versión y publicó una carta abierta.

La culpa es del municipio: que utilizó el 80% del dinero del Fondo Educativo "para pagarle a empleados municipales". Dice en una carta abierta referida al tema, cuyo título es "A todas las familias de la Provincia y a los miembros de la comunidad educativa".

"En el municipio la Provincia planificó 43 obras mayores de las cuales 14 ya están finalizadas. A su vez, el intendente recibió, en lo que va de la gestión, $275 millones del Fondo Educativo. Lamentablemente el 80% de ese dinero no fue destinado al arreglo de las escuelas sino a pagar sueldos de los empleados municipales", dice en el texto.

¿Se victimiza? "Lamento profundamente la utilización política que han hecho algunos sectores de esta tragedia. Es una falta de respeto a los bonaerenses y al duelo de las familias de Sandra y Rubén", dice la gobernadora por escrito.

 

 

Las explicaciones sobre la tragedia se repitieron en algunas de las entrevistas que dio para los medios periodísticos: estuvo en A dos voces, Pamela a la tarde y Radio Mitre. También habló sobre la posiblidad de presentarse como candidata a Presidenta.

"Definitivamente no voy a ser candidata", dijo: "Pienso que el Presidente tiene que reelegir y apoyo esa reelección". Además, habló de un "compromiso" con los bonaerenses. "Les dije que no iba a ser candidata a presidenta, porque a la provincia de Buenos Aires le había hecho mucho daño tener gobernadores que querían ser presidentes", explicó en el canal América TV.

También confirmó que Mauricio Macri se va a presentar como candidato para renovar el puesto de Presidente que ocupa en la actualidad, y dijo que todos los que forman parte de Cambiemos apoyan esta decisión.

Sobre el escándalo de los aportantes truchos dijo que "al principio creyó que no era cierto". "Yo no participé nunca, ni siquiera cuando fui candidata, menos ahora porque en 2017 yo era gobernadora de la provincia", agregó y también criticó un "uso político" que se hace del caso.

En Radio Mitre, Vidal dijo: “Yo no soy como Cristina, estoy más pobre que antes”. Se trató de una reacción a algunas voces que comenzaron a compararla con la ex mandataria (a partir del escándalo de los aportantes truchos): "Esta es la primera denuncia que me hacen, yo no tengo nada que esconder".

Fue confontativa con el Gobierno anterior: "Mis secretarios no tienen propiedades en Miami, mis ministros no tienen cuentas ocultas. No somos todo lo mismo". También trató al kirchnerismo de gobierno de ladrones.

Con respecto a la legalización del aborto, dijo que es un logro que el tema se ponga sobre la mesa y que la plaza sea "pacífica".

Enviar alerta como Síntesis
La gobernadora de la provincia de Buenos Aires escribió una carta pública en la que dijo que la culpa la tiene el municipio. También se presentó, en estos días, en algunos programas de televisión y radio y dijo que no será candidata a la presidencia: "Yo no soy Cristina". La campaña 2019 ya comenzó: María Eugenia Vidal salió a calmar las aguas.

          Obispos de Venezuela piden a Gobierno de Maduro suspender detenciones arbitrarias de opositores      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


CARACAS, 09 Ago. 18 (ACI Prensa).- La Comisión de Justicia y Paz de la Conferencia Episcopal de Venezuela (CEV), llamó al Gobierno “a cesar la represión violenta contra los ciudadanos” y las detenciones arbitrarias de opositores, a quienes se acusa de participar en el “atentado” contra el presidente Nicolás Maduro.

Este 9 de agosto en su cuenta de Twitter el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia (TSJ), lanzó la orden de detención contra el diputado Julio Borges, opositor y expresidente de la Asamblea Nacional refugiado en Colombia. Maduro lo acusa de participar en el “atentado” con drones del sábado 4.

Además, el servicio de inteligencia detuvo al diputado opositor Juan Requesens, luego que Maduro también lo acusara de ser “uno de los responsables” del presunto atentado.

La orden contra Borges y la detención de Requenses se dieron luego que la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente –controlada por el Gobierno– revocó la inmunidad parlamentaria de ambos.

Además, el fiscal general de Venezuela, Tarek William Saab, dijo el lunes que se había identificado a los autores materiales y colaboradores del supuesto atentado. Ese día las autoridades informaron que fueron detenidos seis sospechosos.

Ante esto, la Comisión de la CEV publicó este jueves un comunicado en el que señaló que la investigación de hechos punibles, como el presunto atentado, debe realizarse a través de “los canales propios del proceso penal llevado por los Tribunales competentes que impliquen la existencia del delito y su tipificación”.

En ese sentido, advirtió que los indicios o presunciones de responsabilidad penal no deben llevar “a detenciones arbitrarias, tratos crueles o inhumanos, torturas y desapariciones forzadas”, que atentan contra la integridad física y psíquica de los ciudadanos.

Por ello, instó “al gobierno nacional a cesar la represión violenta contra los ciudadanos, acciones que se suman a la situación de crisis de inseguridad y desequilibrio social que vive el país”.

Además “invitamos a todos los grupos y vicarias de derechos humanos a estar atento de violaciones de derechos humanos, sistematizar todas las acciones y denunciar en las instituciones rectoras todo acto que viole el debido proceso”.

          6 fatos que você não sabia sobre a criação de uma série de TV      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Que a indústria de TV, principalmente de seriados, está bombando, todo mundo sabe. O que pouca gente imagina, porém, é que levar esse monte de séries ao ar é muito mais difícil do que parece. Conheça alguns motivos a seguir.

1 - É um processo demorado e sem garantias
Do momento em que um projeto recebe a “carta verde” para começar a ser produzida até ele se transformar em seriado passam, em média, nove meses. Tudo começa ali por junho e julho, quando roteiristas e produtores vão de estúdio em estúdio, canal em canal, para apresentar suas ideias.

Se for aceita, o roteirista cria uma espécie de passo a passo sobre como será o episódio piloto da série, conhecido como outline. Aprovado o outline, o escritor começa a escrever o roteiro, o que ocorre entre outubro e dezembro. A partir daí, a coisa começa a ficar séria: o estúdio ou o canal podem financiar a filmagem do piloto ou simplesmente abandonar tudo — e lá se vão seis meses de trabalho. Quando o piloto fica pronto, em geral por volta de maio, o canal pode comprar ou não a temporada completa da série.

2 - Ninguém está a salvo
Nesse processo e em um universo de incertezas, muitas cabeças podem rolar, até mesmo aquelas que depois são consideradas visionárias. Foi o que aconteceu com o executivo que aprovou a criação de Lost. Os chefões da Disney, que controla o canal ABC, não ficaram nada felizes com a decisão de Lloyd Braun, na época diretor do canal. Muito menos com o orçamento do piloto, que passou de US$ 10 milhões e foi o mais caro na história da TV. Antes mesmo de ser lançada— e se tornar um hit — Braun foi demitido.

3 - E nem sempre o piloto dá certo
Às vezes um piloto é ótimo, mas a série não vira nada; em outras, o piloto é terrível, e a série vira… Game of Thrones. A HBO quase desistiu do seriado por causa do primeiro piloto, que nunca foi ao ar. Reza a lenda que ele é tão ruim que nem Jon Snow tem coragem de vê-lo. Em uma entrevista ao jornal britânico The Guardian, Kit Harrington, ator que dá vida ao protagonista, brincou que os showrunners da série mantêm ele na linha ameaçando divulgar o piloto original.

4 - Há regrinhas bem chatas
Como muitas séries aparecem primeiro em canais da TV aberta norte-americana, há uma preocupação grande com o que pode ou não aparecer na história para não limitar a audiência. Em Breaking Bad, por exemplo, a AMC só permitiu que os escritores usassem um “fuck” por temporada. A internet, é claro, fez questão de registrar todos eles

5 - E um cuidado absurdo com vazamentos e spoilers
Por ser um processo que envolve muitas etapas (pré-produção, filmagens, pós-produção, edição…) e muita gente, todo cuidado é pouco. “Muitos projetos chegam para a gente com codinome”, explica Stephanie Steponovicius, gerente de produção na Pixelogic, empresa de Los Angeles especializada em serviços de distribuição e de localização. Até porque não existem limites para a sede por spoilers dos fãs. É sério: um dos maiores problemas que a equipe de Game of Thrones enfrentou durante as filmagens, por exemplo, foi a quantidade de drones sobrevoando os sets.

6 - Levar para outros países: o desafio final
Com tudo pronto, o desafio final é fazer o seriado chegar a outros países. “Para legendar um episódio de meia hora em português, por exemplo, pode levar entre sete e dez dias”, explica Steponovicius. E, em alguns casos, o país de destino pode exigir cuidados especiais para se adequar às regras da cultura local (por isso se fala em “localização”), como a eliminação de cenas com bebidas alcoólicas em alguns países árabes.

Interesting piece from the Economist on expanding ocean surveillance in a variety of causes, including military Avast, me hearties: How aquatic, autonomous robots could reduce lawlessness at sea
As the cost of building and operating such vehicles drops, satellite communications systems provide cheaper and faster connectivity, and machine intelligence improves, drones could provide a powerful means of policing illegal activities that take place, unseen, at sea. Powered by wave action, wind power or solar panels, drones could operate for months or even years at a time, scanning large areas in swarms, monitoring environmental conditions and alerting human overseers when something looks amiss. If drones ruled the waves, fisheries would be more sustainable, pollution would be reduced and human trafficking would be harder to get away with. Even if drones can monitor only a small fraction of the ocean’s surface, their presence could be a powerful deterrent.
We touched on the use of AI and drone assets in our last Midrats - especially in the building of databases through which anomalous behavior can be detected and tracked, about 48 minutes in, though the discussion that preceded got to that point.

          Así ensalzó la prensa de 1808 al Empecinado por «sembrar España de cadáveres franceses»      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Desde que se produjera el levantamiento contra el invasor el 2 de mayo de 1808, y hasta que se puso fin a la Guerra de la Independencia española el 17 de abril de 1814, más de 400 artículos de prensa se hicieron eco de las «valientes» ofensivas de Juan Martín Díez contra las tropas de Napoléon. «Llenas están las gacetas de sus proezas. Su fama se extiende más allá de los ámbitos de la nación. Las carreteras de Valladolid, Aranda, Burgos, Salamanca, Sigüenza, Guadalajara, etc., pregonan sus hazañas, que están atestiguadas por tantos y tantos cadáveres enemigos sembrados acá y allá por las manos de este héroe, gloria de la patria y terror del francés», podía leerse en «El Conciso» a principios de 1811. El motivo: la noticia del general enemigo que, tras secuestrar a la madre de nuestro protagonista, tuvo que dejarla en libertad y huir «temeroso» después de que este le amenazara con «pasar a cuchillo» a todos sus prisioneros.

Este no fue más que uno de los muchos episodios que recogieron los periódicos de toda índole, procedencia y línea editorial, rindiéndose ante la figura de este guerrillero de Valladolid al que pronto pasaron a llamar el «Empecinado». España veía nacer a un héroe y la prensa supo explotarlo. «El Empecinado cree perdido el día si no mata gabachos —añadía el mismo diario de corte liberal—. No duerme ni reposa por acosarlos y perseguirlos hasta la muerte. Prosigue así, dignísimo campeón, en tu heroica empresa. Caigan a miles los bandidos postrados por tu mano vencedora. Todos te amamos. La patria complacida está tejiendo ya la inmarcesible corona que embellezca tus sienes y te coloque en el sublime asiento del templo de la inmortalidad».

La Península Ibérica se había convulsionado tres años antes con la llegada de las tropas napoleónicas, que entraron con la excusa de atravesar España para invadir Portugal... pero se quedaron. Martín Díez tenía 32 años y vio con orgullo desde Fuentecén —el pequeño pueblo a donde se había trasladado tras casarse desde su Castrillo del Duero natal—, el levantamiento espontáneo de sus vecinos. Hasta la pequeña región burgalesa había llegado la noticia del alcalde de Móstoles con la que empezó todo: el llamamiento a las armas que este hizo a todos los españoles para que acudieran en socorro del Rey Fernando VII, retenido por Napoleón.

Los «progresos» del Empecinado

Todavía faltaba un año para que la prensa española nombrara a Martín Díez por primera vez. Fue en el «Diario de Mallorca»: «El Empecinado hace muchos progresos en Castilla. Su partida se enriquece y aumenta considerablemente. Últimamente ha pillado 80 carros de equipaje, algunos hasta cargados con colchones», detallaba esta cabecera. Y mucho más quedaba para que este labrador convertido en ídolo fuera pintado por Goya y convertido en uno de los personajes históricos que dio título a la famosa novela de Benito Pérez Galdós.

Durante 1808, el primera año de este conflicto internacional, se habían ido formando las guerrillas, que fue la mejor forma que encontró el pueblo español para luchar contra el invasor. Lo hizo sobre todo en el campo, que era el terreno que mejor conocían sus voluntarios. Juan Martín Díez, desde muy joven con vocación militar, se convirtió pronto en líder de una de las partidas. Se cuenta que tomó la decisión después de ver en su pueblo como una muchacha era violada por un soldado francés al que, más tarde, asesinó como venganza. Fue en ese momento cuando decidió organizar un grupo de guerrilleros con sus propios amigos y familiares, para actuar, inicialmente, en la ruta que unía Madrid y Burgos.

A principios de 1809 ya fue nombrado capitán y, en primavera, extendió su campo de acción hasta Gredos, Ávila y Salamanca, para seguir después por las provincias de Cuenca y Guadalajara. En la edición del 3 de diciembre de ese año, el «Diario de Mallorca» contaba: «Los franceses invadieron Almonacid de Zorita el 13 de octubre con el pretexto de requisar cuatro caballerías. El pueblo se consternó y todas las mujeres se fueron a los cerros. Los franceses hicieron mal al cruzar el Tajo, porque el magnánimo Empecinado se hallaba a cinco leguas de allí. Los esperó a la altura de Albares y, cuando estos estaban almorzando, se presentó ante ellos con 300 hombres, sorprendiendo a los que guardaban las mulas y los equipajes. Alborotándose todos, echaron a huir. Caminaron seis leguas hasta que lograron entrar en Loeches los 34 o 35 que quedaron vivos. Desde Albares hasta el frente de Mondéjar cayeron otros 12. Y las gentes con palos y las mujeres con asadores los acabaron de matar. Allí fue donde abrieron en canal a un mayor grueso y le sacaron una gran porción de sebo (...). El Empecinado solo perdió a un soldado, natural de Trujillo. Esta es la verdad, aunque otros la pinten de otra forma».

«Abrazar la causa de Napoleón»

Fue tal su capacidad de ataque y el daño que infringió a los convoyes franceses, que el mismísimo Napoleón mandó personalmente al general Sigisbert Hugo a que le persiguiera y acabara con él. Tan solo acumuló fracasos. «Leyose una carta de Hugo al brigadier Juan Martín en el que le incitaba a abrazar la causa de Napoleón. La respuesta del Empecinado fue aconsejarle a este que cambiase de vida y dejase de ser satélite del tirano», apuntaba el «Semanario patriótico» el 7 de febrero de 1811. En ese momento, el Empecinado ya tenía a su cargo a 6.000 hombres y el mando del regimiento de húsares [unidad de caballería ligera] de Guadalajara, con los que también protagonizó algunas crónicas de «El Español». «Una de sus partidas hizo 47 prisioneros, tomó 70 caballos y mató a 15 enemigos cerca de Segorbe (Valencia). Cuando el pueblo de Molina de Aragón (Guadalajara) fue atacado por 85 enemigos, el Empecinado los hizo también prisioneros. Y después se dirigió a Daroca (Zaragoza) para sorprender a otra guarnición, pero esta se escapó a Calatayud con algunos muertos y heridos más».

La prensa relataba sus embestidas contra los invasores como victorias de todo la nación, a la que, sin duda, había que levantar el ánimo por las atrocidades de algunos soldados franceses contra la población: «El Empecinado cuenta sus triunfos casi por el número de días. En Castilla, en Aragón, en La Mancha, en Cataluña... en toda la hermosa superficie de este país privilegiado no hay un palmo de tierra ocupado por los enemigos en donde gocen de quietud», aseguraba «El Conciso». Y otras informaciones se centraban en las cifras: «En un ataque entre Almadrones y Olmeda mató a 200 franceses e hizo prisioneros a 300»; «ha evacuado a los franceses de Torrevieja y entrado él con 2.500 soldados»; «ha realizado cuatro ataques en los cuales le ha quitado al enemigo 1.450 hombres» o «ha destrozado en Carabanchel (Madrid) un cuerpo de 200 franceses». Era tal la confianza de Martín Díez que, incluso, se planteó secuestrar al propio José Bonaparte, aprovechando sus conocidos escarceos por las calles de la capital en busca de tabernas. Pero el gran número de guardias que custodiaban al hermano de Napoleón era tan grande que le imposibilitaron el acto.

En 1812, el Empecinado tomó la ciudad de Guadalajara, poco antes de que, tras la batalla de los Arapiles el 22 de julio de ese año, José Bonaparte abandonara definitivamente Madrid. Con motivo de estas nuevas noticias, en el «Diario de Madrid» se podía encontrar reseñas de las obras de teatro que se representaban en la capital sobre las hazañas del gran Juan Martín Díez, que todavía vivía, o la noticia del grabado que se estaba haciendo de su figura para que entrara en la colección de «Los ilustres defensores de la patria».

La defensa de Alcalá de Henares

Un año más tarde, el Empecinado ayudó en la defensa de Alcalá de Henares, en cuyo puente de Zulema venció a un grupo de franceses que le doblaban en número. Tales eran los éxitos del famoso guerrillero que Fernando VII daría su consentimiento para que en dicha ciudad se levantara una pirámide conmemorativa de aquella victoria que, de nuevo «El Conciso», contaba así. «El Empecinado se hallaba en el puente de Alcalá de Henares solo con su batallón de Cuenca y parte del de Madrid, el 22 de abril. Entre 3 y 4 de la mañana se tocó la generala y se formó una columna camino del puente para defenderle contra 20 enemigos con artillería que ya estaban encima. Pero los "empecinados", alentados por su caudillo, resistieron el ataque y un fuego horrible por espacio de dos horas, hasta obligar a los franceses a huir precipitadamente».

Primera vez que el Empecinado aparecía en la prensa española, en el «Diario de Mallorca»
Primera vez que el Empecinado aparecía en la prensa española, en el «Diario de Mallorca» - BNE

La última noticia de la guerra en la que aparece nuestro protagonista fue publicada por «El Fiscal Patriótico de España» el 14 de abril de 1814. En ella se hablaba de la «lacería que sufrió la intrépida división del Empecinado, que en el sitio de Tortosa (Tarragona) acaba de rechazar al enemigo cubriéndose de gloria». Los aliados de España —Inglaterra y Portugal— ya habían reconquistado el norte del país y cruzado los Pirineos. En el sur de Francia continuaron atacando a las tropas de Napoléon. Hubo combates en el río Nivelle, Garris, Orthez, Toulouse y finalmente Bayona, donde los soldados españoles hicieron saqueos como venganza por los excesos cometidos anteriormente por los invasores. Finalmente, Napoleón pidió la paz y el Fernando VII pudo regresar a Madrid. Con el Tratado de Fontainebleau, el emperador francés renunció a todos los derechos de soberanía sobre los territorios bajo su dominio. Francia acababa de perder al dirigente más importante de su historia.

No le fue mucho mejor al Empecinado tras la guerra. Con Fernando VII de nuevo en el poder y restaurado el absolutismo, el héroe español se vio obligado a exiliarse por orden del monarca, al que consideró entonces un enemigo liberal. Sus victorias ya no importaban. Asumió su destierro en Valladolid, pero el 1 de enero de 1820 se unió al levantamiento de Riego cogiendo de nuevo las armas contra el rey al que había defendido. Con el Trienio Liberal (1820-1823) gozó de cierta paz e, incluso, fue nombrado gobernador militar de Zamora. Pero al acabar este periodo tuvo de nuevo que huir a Portugal y, aunque se le dio permiso para regresar poco después, en cuanto puso el pie en España fue detenido y sometido a todo tipo de vejaciones y torturas. Nunca recobró la libertad. Fue condenado a muerte y llevado a la horca el 20 de agosto de 1925. Tenía solo 50 años.

When the Resistance is Really the Assistance
Authors
bruce Thu, 08/09/2018 - 19:45

We all learned in school that some countries have a single governing party. If you’re not in that party, you can’t be part of the government. The US has two government parties, Republicans and Democrats, both funded by the corporations and wealthy individuals who make up this country’s capitalist elite. If you’re not in either one of the government parties, you’re denied access to media and in many states, laws are passed specifically to keep you off the ballot.

While the two parties are funded by pretty much the same class of people, their social bases are different. Since the 1960s, Republicans have made it clear that they are the white man’s party, the party of war abroad and racist reaction at home. Democrats, for electoral purposes are obliged to stake a contrary claim. Since the election of Donald Trump Democrats have branded themselves “the resistance.”

This month the House and Senate passed the reconciled version of the 2019 Pentagon budget on to the White House. On TV and establishment media they call it a defense budget, but that’s branding too. The second world war which ended in 1945 killed 60 or 65 million people, after the first world war claimed 30 million only a generation earlier. This sort of gave war bad name. So in 1948 they changed the name of the US Department of War to the US Department of Defense. With the stroke of a pen, wealthy merchants of death as they were widely known, the war contractors, all became patriotic defense contractors. The US Secretary of War became the US Secretary of Defense, and the US war budget, by far the world’s largest, became the defense budget. And so it’s been for seven decades.

Early this month, the House and Senate passed the reconciled version of the US war budget to the president for signatgure. It’s the earliest in the budget cycle Congress has done a military budget since 1996 or 1997, when a Democrat in the White House and Democrats in Congress were anxious to assure Republicans that they were all on the same side.

They call this year’s atrocity the John McCain National Defense Authorization Act, worth a record $716 billion. This total doesn’t include the budget of the Afghan war, which lives somewhere else, or the budgets of several other known programs, and there are secret budgets for more or less secret programs as well. Nobody really doubts that actual US military spending has hovered around a trillion a year for several years now.

So how did the resistance perform? In the Senate the vote was 87 to 10, three not voting. Only 8 Democrats resisted. Among them Liz Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand. Dick Durbin of Illinois also voted against the Pentagon bill. This is purest theater, because Durbin since 2005 has been Democratic Whip in the Senate, the man responsible for lining up the votes of his fellow senators. If this meant anything to him, why did only 7 other Democrats vote with their supposed leader?

In the House the vote was 351 to 66, with 139 Democrats voting yes, 49 voting no, and 5 not voting. So the resistance was really the assistance, voting almost 2 to 1 to continue spending as much on US wars around the world as the next nine or ten countries put together.

The Congressional Black Caucus was even more eager to assist the US posture of global war than Democrats as a whole, a pattern Glen Ford has called out repeatedly in recent years. CBC members voted 34 to 8 in favor of the permanent war budget, which includes Trump’s military parade, a new Space Force, and scores of drone bases in Africa that put almost the entire continent under US cameras and guns. Noted progresssive Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the only Muslim in Congress, abstained. The CBC members who found the spine to cast votes against the war budget were Bonnie Watson-Coleman, Barbara Lee, John Lewis (who does have a US Navy oiler named after him), Hakim Jeffires, Yvette Clarke, Karne Bass, Bobby Rush, and Hank Johnson.

The House Progressive Caucus did a little better, but still only 28, less than half its membership of 64 opposed the Pentagon budget. That’s what it means to be a progressive Democrat these days.

When most of the so-called progressives are pro-war we can legitimately say that the resistance is really the assistance.

AirMap, an airspace management platform for drones, announced that its unmanned traffic management (UTM) services are being deployed by Air Navigation Services of the Czech Republic (ANS CR).AirMay will deliver situational awareness and authorisation capabilities to the country's growing community of drone operators, reported the American Journal of Transportation.ANS CR is deploying AirMap UTM to manage authorisations for drone flights in the controlled airspace around Vaclav Havel Airport Prague.Operators using the AirMap for Drones mobile application can view up-to-date airspace conditions, advisories, and regulatory information; create flight plans; and very soon will also be able to request authorisation to fly in controlled airspace for fast and safe access to controlled airspace.This is AirMap's second nationwide adoption in Europe. Earlier this year, Swiss aviation authority skyguide, deployed AirMap as part of Europe's first national drone traffic management system. AirMap also powers UTM services in the United States, New Zealand, and Japan."By opening up more airspace we are helping give rise to a new drone economy," said AirMap chairman Ben Marcus. "The Czech Republic is among the global first movers in the race to capture a share of the tremendous opportunity that drones represent as they become more and more a part of our everyday lives."

          Francia cannibale, si mangia l’Africa: il bilancio dell’orrore      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Francia cannibale, si mangia l'Africa: il colonialismo di Parigi sottrae ogni anno 500 miliardi di dollari a 14 paesi africani.
Sapevate che molti paesi africani continuano a pagare una tassa coloniale alla Francia dalla loro indipendenza fino ad oggi? Quando Sékou Touré della Guinea decise nel 1958 di uscire dall’impero coloniale francese, e optò per l’indipendenza del paese, l’élite coloniale francese a Parigi andò su tutte le furie e, con uno storico gesto, l’amministrazione francese della Guinea distrusse qualsiasi cosa che nel paese rappresentasse quelli che definivano i vantaggi della colonizzazione francese. Tremila francesi lasciarono il paese, prendendo tutte le proprietà e distruggendo qualsiasi cosa che non si muovesse: scuole, ambulatori, immobili dell’amministrazione pubblica furono distrutti; macchine, libri, strumenti degli istituti di ricerca, trattori furono sabotati; i cavalli e le mucche nelle fattorie furono uccisi, e le derrate alimentari nei magazzini furono bruciate o avvelenate. L’obiettivo di questo gesto indegno era quello di mandare un messaggio chiaro a tutte le altre colonie: il costo di rigettare la Francia sarebbe stato molto alto. Lentamente la paura serpeggiò tra le élite africane e nessuno, dopo gli eventi della Guinea, trovò mai il coraggio di seguire l’esempio di Sékou Touré, il cui slogan fu “Preferiamo la libertà in povertà all’opulenza nella schiavitù”.
Sylvanus Olympio, il primo presidente della Repubblica del Togo, un piccolo paese in Africa occidentale, trovò una soluzione a metà strada con i francesi. Non voleva che il suo paese continuasse ad essere un dominio francese, perciò rifiutò di siglare il patto di continuazione della colonizzazione proposto da de Gaulle, tuttavia si accordò per pagare un debito annuale alla Francia per i cosiddetti benefici ottenuti dal Togo grazie alla colonizzazione francese. Era l’unica condizione affinché i francesi non distruggessero tutto prima di lasciare il paese. Tuttavia, l’ammontare chiesto dalla Francia era talmente elevato che il rimborso del cosiddetto “debito coloniale” si aggirava al 40% del debito del paese nel 1963. La situazione finanziaria del neo-indipendente Togo era veramente instabile; così, per risolvere la situazione, Olympio decise di uscire dalla moneta coloniale francese Fcfa (il Franco Cfa delle colonie africane francesi), e coniò la moneta del suo paese. Il 13 gennaio 1963, tre giorni dopo aver iniziato a stampare la moneta del suo paese, uno squadrone di soldati analfabeti appoggiati dalla Francia uccise il primo presidente eletto della neo- indipendente Africa.
Olympio fu ucciso da un ex sergente della Legione Straniera di nome Etienne Gnassingbe, che si suppone ricevette un compenso di 612 dollari dalla locale ambasciata francese per il lavoro di assassino. Il sogno di Olympio era quello di costruire un paese indipendente e autosufficiente. Tuttavia ai francesi non piaceva l’idea. Il 30 giugno 1962, Modiba Keita, il primo presidente della Repubblica del Mali, decise di uscire dalla moneta coloniale francese Fcfa imposta a 12 neo-indipendenti paesi africani. Per il presidente maliano, che era più incline ad un’economia socialista, era chiaro che il patto di continuazione della colonizzazione con la Francia era una trappola, un fardello per lo sviluppo del paese. Il 19 novembre 1968, proprio come Olympio, Keita fu vittima di un colpo di stato guidato da un altro ex soldato della Legione Straniera francese, il luogotenente Moussa Traoré. Infatti durante quel turbolento periodo in cui gli africani lottavano per liberarsi dalla colonizzazione europea, la Francia usò ripetutamente molti ex legionari stranieri per guidare colpi di stato contro i presidente eletti.
Il 1° gennaio 1966, Jean-Bédel Bokassa, un ex soldato francese della Legione Straniera, guidò un colpo di stato contro David Dacko, il primo presidente della Repubblica Centrafricana. Il 3 gennaio 1966, Maurice Yaméogo, il primo presidente della Repubblica dell’Alto Volta, oggi Burkina Faso, fu vittima di un colpo di stato condotto da Aboubacar Sangoulé Lamizana, un ex legionario francese che combatté con i francesi in Indonesia e Algeria contro le indipendenze di quei paesi. Il 26 ottobre 1972, Mathieu Kérékou (che era una guardia del corpo del presidente Hubert Maga, il primo presidente della Repubblica del Benin) guidò un colpo di Stato contro il presidente, dopo aver frequentato le scuole militari francesi dal 1968 al 1970. Negli ultimi 50 anni, un totale di 67 colpi di Stato si sono susseguiti in 26 paesi africani; 16 di quest’ultimi sono ex colonie francesi, il che significa che il 61% dei colpi di Stato si sono verificati nell’Africa francofona.
Cinque i golpe subiti dal Burkina Faso e dalle Comore, quattro i colpi di Stato attuati in Burundi, Repubblica Centrafricana, Niger e Mauritania. Sempre tra le ex colonie francesi, hanno vissuto almeno tre colpi di Stato il Congo e il Ciad – due, invece, l’Algeria e il Mali, la Guinea Konakry e la Repubblica Democratica del Congo. Almeno un violento “regime change” ha poi investito Togo, Tunisia, Costa d’Avorio, Magagascar e Rwanda. Altri paesi africani sottoposti a colpi di Stato sono Egitto, Libia e Guinea Equatoriale (un golpe ciascuno), Guinea Bissau e Liberia (due golpe), Nigeria ed Etiopia (tre colpi di Stato), Uganda (quattro) e Sudan (cinque). In totale 45 golpe nell’Africa ex francese, più 22 in altri paesi africani. Come dimostrano questi numeri, la Francia è abbastanza disperata ma attiva nel tenere sotto controllo le sue colonie, a qualsiasi prezzo, a qualsiasi condizione. Nel marzo del 2008, l’ex presidente francese Jacques Chirac disse: «Senza l’Africa, la Francia scivolerebbe a livello di una potenza del terzo mondo». Il predecessore di Chirac, François Mitterand, già nel 1957 profetizzava che «senza l’Africa, la Francia non avrà storia nel 21° secolo».
Proprio in questo momento, 14 paesi africani sono costretti dalla Francia, attraverso un patto coloniale, a depositare l’85% delle loro riserve di valute estere nella Banca Centrale Francese controllata dal ministero delle finanze di Parigi. Finora, il Togo e altri 13 paesi africani dovranno pagare un debito coloniale alla Francia. I leader africani che rifiutano vengono uccisi o restano vittime di colpi di Stato. Coloro che obbediscono sono sostenuti e ricompensati dalla Francia con stili di vita faraonici, mentre le loro popolazioni vivono in estrema povertà e disperazione. E’ un sistema malvagio, denunciato dall’Unione Europea; ma la Francia non è pronta a spostarsi da quel sistema coloniale che muove 500 miliardi di dollari dall’Africa al suo ministero del Tesoro ogni anno. Spesso accusiamo i leader africani di corruzione e di servire gli interessi delle nazioni occidentali, ma c’è una chiara spiegazione per questo comportamento. Si comportano così perché hanno paura di essere uccisi o di restare vittime di un colpo di Stato. Vogliono una nazione potente che li difenda in caso di aggressione o di tumulti. Ma, contrariamente alla protezione di una nazione amica, la protezione dell’Occidente spesso viene offerta in cambio della rinuncia, da parte di quei leader, di servire il loro stesso popolo e i suoi interessi.
I leader africani lavorerebbero nell’interesse dei loro popoli se non fossero continuamente inseguiti e provocati dai paesi colonialisti. Nel 1958, spaventato dalle conseguenze di scegliere l’indipendenza dalla Francia, Leopold Sédar Senghor dichiarò: «La scelta del popolo senegalese è l’indipendenza; vogliono che ciò accada in amicizia con la Francia, non in disaccordo». Da quel momento in poi la Francia accettò soltanto un’ “indipendenza sulla carta” per le sue colonie, siglando “Accordi di Cooperazione”, specificando la natura delle loro relazioni con la Francia, in particolare i legami con la moneta coloniale francese (il franco), il sistema educativo francese, le preferenze militari e commerciali. Qui sotto ci sono le 11 principali componenti del patto di continuazione della colonizzazione dagli anni ‘50.
#1. Debito coloniale a vantaggio della colonizzazione francese. I neo “indipendenti” paesi dovrebbero pagare per l’infrastruttura costruita dalla Francia nel paese durante la colonizzazione. #2. Confisca automatica delle riserve nazionali. I paesi africani devono depositare le loro riserve monetarie nazionali nella banca centrale francese. La Francia detiene le riserve nazionali di 14 paesi africani dal 1961: Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Costa d’Avorio, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Togo, Camerun, Repubblica Centrafricana, Ciad, Congo-Brazzaville, Guinea Equatoriale e Gabon. La politica monetaria che governa un gruppo di paesi così diversi non è complicato perché, di fatto, è decisa dal ministero del Tesoro francese senza rendere conto a nessuna autorità fiscale di qualsiasi paese che sia della Cedeao (la Comunità degli Stati dell’Africa Occidentale) o del Cemac (Comunità degli Stati dell’Africa Centrale). In base alle clausole dell’accordo che ha fondato queste banche e il Cfa, la banca centrale di ogni paese africano è obbligata a detenere almeno il 65% delle proprie riserve valutarie estere in un “operations account” registrato presso il ministero del Tesoro francese, più un altro 20% per coprire le passività finanziarie.
Le banche centrali del Cfa impongono anche un tappo sul credito esteso ad ogni paese membro equivalente al 20% delle entrate pubbliche dell’anno precedente. Anche se la Beac e la Bceao hanno un fido bancario col Tesoro francese, i prelievi da quel fido sono soggetti al consenso dello stesso ministero del Tesoro. L’ultima parola spetta al Tesoro francese, che ha investito le riserve estere degli Stati africani alla Borsa di Parigi a proprio nome. In breve, più dell’ 80% delle riserve valutarie straniere di questi paesi africani sono depositate in “operations accounts” controllati dal Tesoro francese. Le due banche Cfa sono africane di nome, ma non hanno una politica monetaria propria. Gli stessi paesi non sanno, né viene detto loro, quanto del bacino delle riserve valutarie estere detenute presso il ministero del Tesoro a Parigi appartiene a loro come gruppo o individualmente. Gli introiti degli investimenti di questi fondi presso il Tesoro francese dovrebbero essere aggiunti al conteggio, ma non c’è nessuna notizia che venga fornita al riguardo né alle banche né ai paesi circa i dettagli di questi scambi. Al ristretto gruppo di alti ufficiali del ministero del Tesoro francese che conoscono le cifre detenute negli “operations accounts”, sanno dove vengono investiti questi fondi e se esiste un profitto a partire da quegli investimenti, viene impedito di parlare per comunicare queste informazioni alle banche Cfa o alle banche centrali degli stati africani, scrive il dottor Gary K. Busch (economista, docente universitario a Londra).
Si stima che la Francia detenga all’incirca 500 miliardi di monete provenienti dagli Stati africani, e farebbe qualsiasi cosa per combattere chiunque voglia fare luce su questo lato oscuro del vecchio impero. Gli stati africani non hanno accesso a quel denaro. La Francia permette loro di accedere soltanto al 15% di quel denaro all’anno. Se avessero bisogno di più, dovrebbero chiedere in prestito una cifra extra dal loro stesso 65% da Tesoro francese a tariffe commerciali. Per rendere le cose ancora peggiori, la Francia impone un cappio sull’ammontare di denaro che i paesi possono chiedere in prestito da quella riserva. Il cappio è fissato al 20% delle entrate pubbliche dell’anno precedente. Se i paesi volessero prestare più del 20% dei loro stessi soldi, la Francia ha diritto di veto. L’ex presidente francese Jacques Chirac ha detto recentemente qualcosa circa i soldi delle nazioni africane detenuti nelle banche francesi. In un VIDEO parla dello schema di sfruttamento francese. Parla in francese, ma questo è un piccolo sunto: «Dobbiamo essere onesti e riconoscere che una gran parte dei soldi nelle nostre banche provengono dallo sfruttamento del continente africano».
#3. Diritto di primo rifiuto su qualsiasi materia prima o risorsa naturale scoperta nel paese. La Francia ha il primo diritto di comprare qualsiasi risorsa naturale trovate nella terra delle sue ex colonie. Solo dopo un “Non sono interessata” della Francia, i paesi africani hanno il permesso di cercare altri partners. #4. Priorità agli interessi francesi e alle società negli appalti pubblici. Nei contratti governativi, le società francesi devono essere prese in considerazione per prime e, solo dopo, questi paesi possono guardare altrove. Non importa se i paesi africani possono ottenere un miglior servizio ad un prezzo migliore altrove. Di conseguenza, in molte delle ex colonie francesi, tutti i maggiori asset economici dei paesi sono nelle mani degli espatriati francesi. In Costa d’Avorio, per esempio, le società francesi possiedono e controllano le più importanti utilities – acqua, elettricità, telefoni, trasporti, porti e le più importanti banche. Lo stesso nel commercio, nelle costruzioni e in agricoltura. Infine, come ho scritto in un precedente articolo, “gli africani ora vivono in un continente di proprietà degli europei”.
#5. Diritto esclusivo a fornire equipaggiamento militare e formazione ai quadri militari del paese. Attraverso un sofisticato schema di borse di studio e “Accordi di Difesa” allegati al Patto Coloniale, gli africani devono inviare i loro quadri militari per la formazione in Francia o in strutture gestite dai francesi. La situazione nel continente adesso è che la Francia ha formato centinaia, anche migliaia di traditori e li foraggia. Restano dormienti quando non c’è bisogno di loro, e vengono riattivati quando è necessario un colpo di Stato o per qualsiasi altro scopo! #6. Diritto della Francia di inviare le proprie truppe e intervenire militarmente nel paese per difendere i propri interessi. In base a qualcosa chiamato “Accordi di Difesa” allegati al Patto Coloniale, la Francia ha il diritto di intervenire militarmente negli Stati africani e anche di stazionare truppe permanentemente nelle basi e nei presidi militari in quei paesi, gestiti interamente dai francesi.
Poi ci sono le basi militari francesi in Africa. Quando il presidente Laurent Gbagbo della Costa d’Avorio cercò di porre fine allo sfruttamento francese del paese, la Francia organizzò un colpo di Stato. Durante il lungo processo per estromettere Gbagbo, i carri armati francesi, gli elicotteri d’attacco e le forze speciali intervennero direttamente nel conflitto sparando sui civili e uccidendone molti. Per aggiungere gli insulti alle ingiurie, la Francia stima che la “business community” francese abbia perso diversi milioni di dollari quando, nella fretta di abbandonare Abidjan nel 2006, l’esercito francese massacrò 65 civili disarmati, ferendone altri 1.200. Dopo il successo della Francia con il colpo di Stato, e il trasferimento di poteri ad Alassane Outtara, la Francia ha chiesto al governo Ouattara di pagare un compenso alla “business community” francese per le perdite durante la guerra civile. Il governo Ouattara, infatti, pagò il doppio delle perdite dichiarate mentre scappavano.
#7. Obbligo di dichiarare il francese lingua ufficiale del paese e lingua del sistema educativo. “Oui, Monsieur. Vous devez parlez français, la langue de Molière!” (sì, signore. Dovete parlare francese, la lingua di Molière!). Un’organizzazione per la diffusione della lingua e della cultura francese chiamata “Francophonie” è stata creata con diverse organizzazioni satellite e affiliati supervisionati dal ministero degli esteri francese. Come dimostrato in quest’articolo, se il francese è l’unica lingua che parli, hai accesso al solo 4% dell’umanità, del sapere e delle idee. Molto limitante.
#8. Obbligo di usare la moneta coloniale francese Fcfa. Questa è la vera mucca d’oro della Francia, tuttavia è un sistema talmente malefico che finanche l’Unione Europea lo ha denunciato. La Francia però non è pronta a lasciar perdere il sistema coloniale che inietta all’incirca 500 miliardi di dollari africani nelle sue casse. Durante l’introduzione dell’euro in Europa, altri paesi europei scoprirono il sistema di sfruttamento francese. Molti, soprattutto i paesi nordici, furono disgustati e suggerirono che la Francia abbandonasse quel sistema. Senza successo. #9. Obbligo di inviare in Francia il budget annuale e il report sulle riserve. Senza report, niente soldi. In ogni caso il ministero delle banche centrali delle ex colonie, e il ministero dell’incontro biennale dei ministri delle finanze delle ex colonie è controllato dalla banca centrale francese e dal ministero del Tesoro.
#10. Rinuncia a siglare alleanze militari con qualsiasi paese se non autorizzati dalla Francia. I paesi africani in genere sono quelli che hanno il minor numero di alleanze militari regionali. La maggior parte dei paesi ha solo alleanze militari con gli ex colonizzatori (divertente, ma si può fare di meglio!). Nel caso delle ex colonie francesi, la Francia proibisce loro di cercare altre alleanze militari eccetto quelle che vengono offerte loro. #11. Obbligo di allearsi con la Francia in caso di guerre o crisi globali. Più di un milione di soldati africani hanno combattuto per sconfiggere il nazismo e il fascismo durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Il loro contributo è spesso ignorato o minimizzato, ma se si pensa che alla Germania furono sufficienti solo 6 settimane per sconfiggere la Francia nel 1940, quest’ultima sa che gli africani potrebbero essere utili per combattere per la “Grandeur de la France” in futuro.
C’è qualcosa di psicopatico nel rapporto che la Francia ha con l’Africa. Primo, la Francia è molto dedita al saccheggio e allo sfruttamento dell’Africa sin dai tempi della schiavitù. Poi c’è questa mancanza di creatività e di immaginazione dell’élite francese a pensare oltre i confini del passato e della tradizione. Infine, la Francia ha due istituzioni che sono completamente congelate nel passato, abitate da “haut fonctionnaires” paranoici e psicopatici che diffondono la paura dell’apocalisse se la Francia cambiasse, e il cui riferimento ideologico deriva dal romanticismo del 19° secolo: sono il ministero delle finanze e del bilancio e il ministero degli affari esteri. Queste due istituzioni non solo sono una minaccia per l’Africa ma anche per gli stessi francesi. Tocca a noi africani liberarci, senza chiedere permesso, perché ancora non riesco a capire, per esempio, come possano 450 soldati francesi in Costa d’Avorio controllare una popolazione di 20 milioni di persone. La prima reazione della gente, subito dopo aver saputo della tassa coloniale francese, consiste in una domanda: “Fino a quando?”. Per paragone storico, la Francia ha costretto Haiti a pagare l’equivalente odierno di 21 miliardi di dollari dal 1804 al 1947 (quasi un secolo e mezzo) per le perdite subite dai commercianti di schiavi francesi dall’abolizione della schiavitù e la liberazione degli schiavi haitiani. I paesi africani stanno pagando la tassa coloniale solo negli ultimi 50 anni, perciò penso che manchi ancora un secolo di pagamenti!
(Mawuna Remarque Koutonin, “Quattordici paesi africani costretti a pagare la tassa coloniale francese”, da “Africa News” dell’8 febbraio 2014).

Sapevate che molti paesi africani continuano a pagare una tassa coloniale alla Francia dalla loro indipendenza fino ad oggi? Quando Sékou Touré della Guinea decise nel 1958 di uscire dall’impero coloniale francese, e optò per l’indipendenza del paese, l’élite coloniale francese a Parigi andò su tutte le furie e, con uno storico gesto, l’amministrazione francese della Guinea distrusse qualsiasi cosa che nel paese rappresentasse quelli che definivano i vantaggi della colonizzazione francese. Tremila francesi lasciarono il paese, prendendo tutte le proprietà e distruggendo qualsiasi cosa che non si muovesse: scuole, ambulatori, immobili dell’amministrazione pubblica furono distrutti; macchine, libri, strumenti degli istituti di ricerca, trattori furono sabotati; i cavalli e le mucche nelle fattorie furono uccisi, e le derrate alimentari nei magazzini furono bruciate o avvelenate. L’obiettivo di questo gesto indegno era quello di mandare un messaggio chiaro a tutte le altre colonie: il costo di rigettare la Francia sarebbe stato molto alto. Lentamente la paura serpeggiò tra le élite africane e nessuno, dopo gli eventi della Guinea, trovò mai il coraggio di seguire l’esempio di Sékou Touré, il cui slogan fu “Preferiamo la libertà in povertà all’opulenza nella schiavitù”.

Just a year ago, a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia turned deadly. A.C Thompson covered the rally for ProPublica . The mood of the marchers wasn’t merely angry, it felt homicidal. And yet, as the march snaked across the grounds of the University of Virginia, I’d only seen two police officers. One of them had confronted Karim, who was carrying a camera-equipped drone in his hand. The officer wanted Karim [a producer for PBSs Frontline who was working with Thompson] to know that he wasn’t allowed to fly it over the campus. By now you know, at least in rough terms, what happened that night. A horde of white supremacists clad in polo shirts attacked a small group of anti-racist protesters, many of them students. The white supremacists used their flaming torches as weapons, smashing them into the students, again and again. The following day, a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters. Heather Heyer, 32, was killed by a 20-year-old neo-Nazi from Ohio. Twenty-nine

Humans always need help. Hard work or even little chores, these Little Helper Drones can do anything. They can be your eyes, you can travel through foreign lands via the drones, you can see the times or just decorate your room with the clocks.

The robotic eyes (Cybernetic Eyes) work with both Genesis 8 Females and Males.  Due to the similar shape, they also can use with Genesis 3 figures. At some characters minor tweaking (scale a little) maybe required. 

The drone (droid) has moveable "eyes", you can move in or out as required. The small lights can help to see the environment and you can speak to other people through the speakers.

There are more body parts, so you can hide the outer sphere, the inner drone or the aperture easily.

The drone can turn into the Robotic Eye with a single click (also it has its own wearable preset)

The drone also can use as a Clock. There is a preset with 2 different Clock Base and a fully poseable Clock Handle attached.
The Clockface presets also can apply on the Droid or the Robotic Eye.

There is a laser you can attach to the drone (or eyeball). With the shaping morphs, color and light strength options, you can use as laser beam, gloaming sight, a scanner or just as a simple light. The laser can be attached to the drone or to the robotic eyes or even to the clock.

          What will it take to save privacy?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Mukund Rathi reports on a recent Supreme Court case that limits the ability of the police to access our information — and explains why the fight for our privacy rights will need to be fought on a different basis.

EARLIER THIS summer, the U.S. Supreme Court, in the middle of spewing out horrible attacks on workers and oppressed people, made one good decision.

In Carpenter v. United States, it ruled that the police must get a warrant to access a person’s location data held by phone companies. This is a victory for privacy and restriction of police power.

Courts normally allow the police to run rampant, so any restriction is a welcome relief. This ruling is an exception to the “third-party doctrine,” under which the government doesn’t need a warrant to search people’s information when held by third parties like phone companies.

However, the ruling has some notable limitations. First, warrant requirements aren’t the great protection from police surveillance that they’re made out to be, and second, they offer no protection against corporate surveillance.

These are longtime problems in the fight for privacy and reflect the skewed motives and ideologies in its leading alliance, between civil rights lawyers and technology companies.

Carpenter is a welcome development, but to expand on it fully, the fight needs to come from the bottom up. The current mobilizations of tech workers to force companies like Microsoft and Google to cease cooperation with the racist schemes of the Pentagon and ICE are showing a new factor in the fight for privacy and against police power.


THE CARPENTER case arose because police, responding to a series of robberies, used a federal court order to access phone companies’ records on several suspects.

These records include location data, which our phones are constantly transmitting to the companies’ cell towers to form the connections we use to make calls, send texts and go online. The police used this location data as circumstantial evidence, placing suspects near the crime scenes.

In the courts, the question was: Should a warrant under the Fourth Amendment, rather than just a court order, be required for the police to get this data? The Fourth Amendment prohibits “unreasonable searches and seizures” and requires warrants based on “probable cause,” which specifically describes what can be searched and/or seized.

One reason this matters is that to get a warrant, police must show enough evidence to a judge that there is “probable cause” to believe there is criminal activity to investigate. The bar for a court order (“reasonable grounds” rather than “probable cause”) is lower.

Police have a shocking amount of discretion and power to “investigate crimes” — essentially to invade people’s privacy. This ranges from subpoenaing businesses for information they have about people, to stopping and frisking people on the street. The fight for privacy, if carried out meaningfully, is part of the fight against the police. Requiring police to get a warrant can be a hedge against their power.

But based on the “third-party doctrine,” established by the Supreme Court in the late 1970s, a warrant hasn’t been required for things like people’s location data held by phone companies.

In two cases, the Court ruled that police didn’t need a Fourth Amendment warrant to get people’s records of dialed phone numbers or bank records. It decided that people had no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in this information because they “voluntarily” handed it over to the phone company and bank in order to use their services.


BOURGEOIS LAW on privacy, as with other areas, has historically changed in response to the political moment and political movements.

The concept of “reasonable expectation of privacy” was invented by the Supreme Court in 1967, a decade before the third-party doctrine, as part of a reformulation of how far Fourth Amendment protections should extend and when warrants are required.

Before this, people were protected only if the government physically intruded on their property, such as by searching a house. But this allowed the government to freely wiretap phones — which it took full advantage of, targeting the social movements of the 1960s in particular.

The Supreme Court confronted this problem by discarding the intrusion framework and ruling that the Fourth Amendment applies where people have a “reasonable expectation of privacy.” The concept of “reasonableness” is central to bourgeois law, as it gives judges the flexibility to apply bourgeois ideology to resolve legal conflicts.

In the Fourth Amendment context, this means deciding how worthy the privacy protection is and balancing it against the interests of police. The Court decided that people have a reasonable expectation of privacy in phone conversations, so a warrant was required for wiretaps.

However, the third-party doctrine says that when people “voluntarily” give information to a third party, the cat is out of the bag — so it’s unreasonable to expect that information to be private. This means it’s not protected by the Fourth Amendment, and police don’t need to get a warrant.

In the last few decades, tech companies have exploded in size, building electronic and digital infrastructures on which people and businesses communicate, socialize and commercially transact.

These increasingly monopolistic companies control more and more people’s data, and under the third-party doctrine, it’s all unprotected by the Fourth Amendment. (On rare occasions, courts have carved out exceptions, such as for the content of e-mails.)

None of this is voluntary — in our society, we have no choice but to get cell phones, open bank accounts, create social media accounts, etc. As workers and consumers, we have to submit to capitalists in order to get the resources that sustain our lives.

In Carpenter (and in other recent cases), the Supreme Court partially conceded this. It noted that carrying a phone is “indispensable to participation in modern society,” and by tracking it, the government achieves “near perfect surveillance, as if it had attached an ankle monitor to the phone user.” There is “no way to avoid leaving behind a trail of location data” so “in no meaningful sense” is this voluntary.

So the Court carved out a narrow exception to the third-party doctrine for an individual person’s location data held by phone companies.


CARPENTER WAS a clear shift by the Supreme Court in response to the political moment of increased concerns about privacy in the digital age. These large concerns, however, have been filtered into narrow demands for warrant protections.

Tech companies, for example, are specifically concerned about state surveillance interfering with their business models, which require their own privacy invasions. These companies — from Apple to Verizon to Facebook — submitted a brief in Carpenter, arguing not only against the third-party doctrine, but also that “Fourth Amendment protections for digital data should be strong.”

The companies note that “customers entrust [them] with some of their most intimate information, including what they search, where they are, and details of their daily lives.” Of course, “trust” is besides the point, because as the brief itself argues, using these companies’ services is “fundamental” to life in this society.

Regardless, the point is that if customers are wary that police are snooping through this information, the political backlash may hit the companies’ bottom lines. Will customers be willing to buy a “smart speaker” for their home if they’re worried the government may be listening in? The companies want unfettered surveillance powers for themselves, and limited ones for the state.

Some ruling-class judges also want to slightly limit state surveillance power. In a 2012 case, United States v. Jones, the Supreme Court ruled that police violated the Fourth Amendment by attaching and using a GPS tracker on a suspect’s vehicle.

During oral arguments, Chief Justice Roberts incredulously pointed out to the government’s attorney that, by their theory, it wouldn’t violate the Fourth Amendment if police spied on the justices and “put a GPS device on all of our cars [and] monitored our movements for a month.”

In Carpenter, the Court pointed out that because everyone carries a phone, the government’s “newfound tracking capacity runs against everyone,” not just those people “under investigation.” In short, judges don’t want the whole ruling class to also get caught up in the surveillance dragnet.


WHILE THESE fissures in the ruling class and the state can be used to our advantage, they often end up defining the goals of privacy activists, like around the search warrant. Civil rights lawyers unintentionally contribute to this narrowness by exaggerating the virtues of warrant protections.

Warrants are supposedly a grand compromise between police power and people’s privacy, with the “neutral and detached” judge providing oversight. Police must gather evidence, demonstrate to the judge that “probable cause” exists, and then follow the specific warrant instructions in carrying out the search/seizure.

But this just doesn’t describe reality. For example, courts routinely make procedural adjustments to make it easier for police to get a warrant. The Supreme Court itself has noted that “well over a majority of states allow police officers or prosecutors to apply for search warrants remotely through various means, including telephonic or radio communication, electronic communication such as e-mail, and video conferencing.”

But while courts make it easier for police to detain and arrest people, they don’t make it easier for people to enforce their legal rights. If someone is illegally detained, can they immediately video conference with a judge to get an emergency habeas order?

To accurately describe reality, the theory cannot be that courts and judges are neutral and detached. Rather, as has become clearer to many people thanks to movements like Black Lives Matter, judges are stewards of an unfair, ruling class legal system, and so are willing to condone even the most horrific police abuses.

This doesn’t mean warrant requirements are worthless, but that our argument for them is about expanding rights within a fundamentally unfair system, not some fantasy about the rule of law. But of course, neither judges, tech companies, nor most civil rights lawyers are willing to go there.

Our side has to be. Carpenter is a step forward, but to expand its carve-out of the third-party doctrine and really get privacy from police power, we have to get radical.

Slow, respectful civil rights litigation needs to make way for a frontal critique of not just warrantless spying by police, but also spying by tech companies, the cooperation between the two, and the legal system which allows all of it.

There are clear foundations on which such a movement could be built. Mass public outrage followed Edward Snowden’s revelations that U.S. tech companies were crucially supporting — to the tune of millions of dollars in payments — the National Security Agency’s global surveillance programs.

The Black Lives Matter movement opposes not just police murder, but also the daily harassment and intrusion that comes with police occupation.

Today, as tech workers at Google, Microsoft and other companies are taking the lead in pressuring these companies to stop providing services to government agencies that are targeting immigrants, carrying out drone wars and more, the potential seeds of a larger fight against government spying and for our privacy rights can be glimpsed.


          Con el suministro de S-400 a Delhi, "Rusia arrebata a EEUU uno de sus principales compradores de armas"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Los planes de Moscú y Nueva Delhi en el ámbito militar en 2018 quitaron a EEUU la oportunidad de suministrar más armas a la India, afirman los periodistas del portal chino EastDay.

Actualmente, EEUU lidera el ranking de países exportadores de armas, mientras que Rusia ocupa el segundo lugar. En los últimos años, ambos países empezaron a competir por imponerse en el importante mercado indio.

No obstante, fue Rusia y no EEUU quien logró negociar con Nueva Delhi un acuerdo para el suministro de sistemas antiaéreos, concretamente los S-400, y 500 vehículos blindados T-90S, escribe EastDay.

"Rusia le arrebata a EEUU uno de sus principales compradores de armas", afirman desde el periódico chino.

Sin embargo, varios altos cargos de Rusia indicaron este 29 de marzo que las negociaciones entre Rusia y la India sobre el suministro de sistemas S-400 todavía no están terminadas, de modo que todavía se desconoce la suma total de los suministros. Rusia espera firmar un contrato para la entrega de los sistemas antiaéreos durante 2018, dijo el vicedirector del Servicio Federal de Cooperación Militar-Técnica, Vladímir Drozhzhov, a los periodistas presentes en la exhibición ArmHiTech-2018.



Según Economic Times, el contrato puede ser firmado durante la visita de la ministra de Defensa india, Nirmala Sitharaman, a Moscú en la primera semana de abril.

Como recuerda EastDay, la India se ve obligada a adquirir el armamento extranjero por diversas razones, aunque, al mismo tiempo, también cuenta con vehículos blindados, cazas y submarinos de fabricación nacional.

Pese a que inicialmente la India solo adquiría armas rusas, en los últimos años también mostró interés por equipamientos de producción estadounidense. En agosto de 2014, el Ministerio de Defensa de la India publicó un informe que confirmaba que EEUU se había convertido en el mayor proveedor de armas del país asiático.

Nueva Delhi firmó una serie de acuerdos militares con Washington que incluían la adquisición de 22 drones de combate Predator por 100 millones de dólares y cazas F-16 por 10.000 millones de dólares.

Los planes de la India para adquirir armamento ruso no solo afectan a la economía de EEUU, sino también a los planes de la Administración Trump de incrementar la influencia de Washington en la zona de la India y el Pacífico, lo que dicho de otra forma es un intento de aislar a Moscú y Pekín a través de la cooperación con Nueva Delhi, subrayan los periodistas del portal chino.

Por su parte, los sistemas S-400 no solo no son inferiores a sus homólogos estadounidenses, sino que incluso los superan. Según EastDay, los suministros de los S-400 también tienen una importancia política, ya que muestran claramente que Nueva Delhi apuesta por reforzar la colaboración militar con Moscú, en detrimento de Washington.

          El potente enemigo que puede hacer pedazos a Google      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


La guerra comercial no es el único contencioso entre China y EEUU. Hasta las compañías de tecnología están luchando por dominar el mercado del país asiático.

Tras la salida de Google de China en 2010 el motor de búsqueda chino Baidu mantiene su posición y le hará pedazos a Google, escribió en su cuenta de Wechat el director ejecutivo de Baidu, Robin Li. La posibilidad del regreso de Google a China se conoció luego de los informes de que la compañía estadounidense está desarrollando un motor de búsqueda especial para teléfonos inteligentes en Android, dirigido al mercado chino. ¿Necesita el mercado chino otro motor de búsqueda? ¿O puede la Red china ofrecer alguna alternativa a los productos occidentales?

Google está trabajando en un motor de búsqueda con el nombre Dragonfly, comunicó el portal The Intercept citando los documentos internos de la compañía. Se señala que Dragonfly es un sistema diseñado para teléfonos inteligentes con Android. El motor de búsqueda filtrará el contenido de acuerdo con los requisitos de la legislación china y no mostrará en los enlaces de resultados de búsqueda la información prohibida por las reglas de regulación de internet de China. Y el contenido no deseado se bloqueará en todas las secciones del motor de búsqueda: de archivos, imágenes, vídeos etc. Google no confirmó la información (pero no la refutó), simplemente indicando que no tienen la intención de comentar los datos de especulación. Sin embargo, los mercados reaccionaron con confianza a esta información: las acciones de Baidu, la mayor compañía de motores de búsqueda y tecnología en China, cayeron en más del 7%.

La reacción del mercado es, en principio, comprensible. Desde que Google salió de China en 2010, su competidor chino, Baidu, ha tomado una posición casi monopólica: la compañía controla más del 70% del mercado, según el propio Robin Li. Naturalmente, en ausencia de competencia, la compañía se desarrolló dinámicamente. Pero el posible regreso de un jugador tan fuerte como Google asusta a los inversores. Ya no son tan optimistas sobre el desarrollo futuro de Baidu.



Por supuesto, Google es un gigante global. Y competir con él en términos de tecnología, y en la cantidad de usuarios no es fácil ni siquiera para Baidu. Pero surge la pregunta: ¿necesitan los usuarios chinos un motor de búsqueda alternativo? Tal vez Baidu, al ocupar casi todo el mercado chino, cumpla completamente con sus necesidades, y cualquier alternativa ofrecida por Google, ¿simplemente no encontrará demanda en China?

El experto chino en tecnologías de internet Liu Xingliang dijo en una entrevista para Sputnik que será muy difícil para Google recuperar de Baidu sus posiciones.

"Si el motor de búsqueda de Google regresa a China en la forma en que funciona en todo el mundo, entonces, por supuesto, los usuarios de internet chinos lo recibirán con agrado. Pero si Google desarrolla en China solo aquellos productos que han sido aprobados por las autoridades, si, por ejemplo, se pone en marcha un motor de búsqueda que bloquee cualquier contenido indeseable desde el punto de vista de las autoridades chinas, entonces dicho producto no lo necesitamos. Si Google se rinde, tendré grandes pérdidas de reputación a ojos de los usuarios. E incluso si Google ingresa al mercado chino, la imagen de la empresa se verá afectada", afirmó Liu Xingliang.

Históricamente, Google siempre ha tenido el lema: "No seas malvado" ("don`t be evil"). En realidad, esta fue la base ética de la empresa. Cuando Google abandonó China en 2010, uno de sus fundadores, Serguéi Brin, nacido en la Unión Soviética, resumió esta base ideológica. "Me preocupa más que a otros, porque nací en un país totalitario, y lo vi todo en los primeros años de mi vida", dijo Brin. De hecho, tal vez sea una perversidad que Google abandone China solo por el rechazo de la censura por la compañía. Después de todo, hasta 2010 Google funcionó en China y filtró el contenido de acuerdo con todas las reglas del 'gran firewall chino'. Pero luego los servicios de correo Gmail se convirtieron en la meta de los ataques de hackers, Google comenzó a generar tráfico a través de los servidores de Hong Kong, libres de 'firewall'. Y se negó a obedecer las demandas de las autoridades de introducir filtros para el contenido. Pero, ¿por qué se negó?, ¿por consideraciones ideológicas o por consideraciones de seguridad corporativa y simples intereses comerciales?, la pregunta queda sin respuesta.


En general, los enfrentamientos entre los intereses comerciales de la empresa y su ética corporativa comenzaron a ocurrir con mayor frecuencia. El Project Maven del Departamento de Defensa de EEUU hizo una gran división en la empresa. Google, como parte del proyecto, desarrolla algoritmos de visión artificial (una rama de la inteligencia artificial) para analizar imágenes desde drones militares. Más de 4.000 empleados de Google firmaron una petición en contra de este proyecto. Creen que la participación de la compañía en los proyectos militares contradice el lema de "no ser malvado". Incluso dimitieron más de 10 ingenieros destacados de la compañía que no quisieron trabajar en el proyecto. Como resultado, bajo la presión de sus propios empleados, Google se negó a extender la cooperación con el Pentágono sobre el proyecto después de 2019.

Para justificar ideológicamente el deseo de Google de regresar a China, el actual director ejecutivo de la empresa Sundar Pichai presentó un nuevo eslogan: "Google para todos. Queremos estar presentes en China y brindar nuestros servicios a los chinos. Me importa que Google esté presente en todos los rincones del mundo". Sin embargo, básicamente los motivos de Google están determinados por intereses comerciales, según cree el experto chino en tecnologías de internet Liu Xingliang.

"China es la segunda economía del mundo. Naturalmente, este es un mercado extremadamente atractivo para cualquier compañía. Es cierto, hace 8 años China era atractiva. Los fundadores de la compañía aún llevan el timón. Entonces, ¿por qué la compañía cambió radicalmente su política y vuelve a regresar a China?", opinó.
La respuesta es probablemente bastante simple. Los gigantes tecnológicos del mundo, como Google y Facebook, han alcanzado cierto límite en los mercados mundiales. Las acciones de Facebook recientemente cayeron casi un 20% después de que la compañía publicara su informe trimestral. El crecimiento de los indicadores clave de la compañía, la audiencia y los ingresos, fue por primera vez inferior a las previsiones. Además, el director financiero de Facebook, David Wehner, dijo que en el futuro los indicadores del crecimiento serán aún menores.

Las empresas necesitan un gran mercado no explotado. Por lo tanto, están tratando de llegar a China, aceptando las demandas de las autoridades locales. Apple está lista para transferir los datos de los usuarios del segmento chino de iCloud a una compañía local. Facebook anunció la apertura de una sucursal en la ciudad china de Hangzhou y la intención de crear allí un centro innovador. Sin embargo, un día después, las autoridades de la República Popular China revocaron el permiso para abrir la sucursal, alegando procedimientos administrativos incorrectamente ejecutados.

Otra cuestión es que incluso a pesar de todas las concesiones, es posible que ya se haya perdido el tiempo de la lucha por el mercado chino. Las empresas chinas han creado un ecosistema autónomo de internet local. Hay análogos de Google — Baidu, de Twitter — Weibo, de Whatsapp — Wechat. Como escribió recientemente el New York Times, en la última década apareció en China una generación de personas que ni siquiera conoce la existencia de Google, Facebook, Instagram o Twitter. Los usuarios chinos reciben todo tipo de servicios similares que les proporcionan un contenido interesante. Y ni siquiera piensan en el hecho de que cierta información simplemente se bloquea por razones de censura. Este argumento se confirma por los resultados de una investigación, según The New York Times, realizado por dos científicos de la Universidad de Pekín y la Universidad Stanford. Aproximadamente 1.000 estudiantes recibieron un software para eludir los bloqueos de internet. Ninguno de ellos usó este software para ver los recursos de información extranjeros. Al menos una mitad de los estudiantes ni siquiera intentaron pasar por alto los bloqueos.

https://www.aneddoticamagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/sddefault-220.jpg


Origami-hand has two major features. One is that each finger is composed of a piece of water resistant paper and does not require any mechanical parts such as shafts and bearings. Therefore, no foreign matter enters between the joints, it is inexpensive and can be disposable, so there is no need to worry hygienically. Another feature is to adopt a mechanism called “familiarization mechanism” that moves passively according to the shape of the object to be gripped. This makes it possible to cope with variations in shape and size of food without complicated control. Because of these features, this hand can be used in many places outside the factory. It is lightweight because it is made of paper, and it can be used as a prosthetic hand or to be mounted on a drone easily because its size can be freely adjusted if the magnification is changed. In addition, since mechanical parts requiring lubricating oil are not used, operation in outer space and deep sea can be easily performed.

          Listen To New ALICE IN CHAINS Song 'Never Fade'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
"Never Fade", a brand new song from ALICE IN CHAINS, can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band's upcoming album, "Rainier Fog", which will be released on August 24. "Rainier Fog" marks a few firsts for ALICE IN CHAINS: in addition to being their first album in five years, it's their first album for BMG and their first time recording in their hometown of Seattle in more than 20 years (worth noting that the album title is a tribute to Seattle). They recorded at Studio X, the same facility where they tracked 1995's self-titled "Alice In Chains" album (back when the studio was known as Bad Animals). The "Rainier Fog" recording process also saw the band spend time at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles and at the Nashville studio of producer Nick Raskulinecz. "Rainier Fog" is the third straight ALICE IN CHAINS album recorded with Raskulinecz and engineer Paul Figueroa. The album was mixed by Joe Barresi (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, TOOL). "Rainier Fog" track listing: 01. The One You Know 02. Rainier Fog 03. Red Giant 04. Fly 05. Drone 06. Deaf Ears Blind Eyes 07. Maybe 08. So Far Under 09. Never Fade 10. All I Am Guitarist and co-vocalist Jerry Cantrell told Guitar World about the upcoming LP: "It's not that we were keeping it a secret — we just didn't want to say a whole lot about it until we had something to say. And we certainly have something to say with this one. It's a fucking strong record." As for the musical direction of the new ALICE IN CHAINS material, Cantrell said: "It's a record we haven't done yet, I can tell you that. But it's also a record that has all the elements of anything you would expect from us. It's got our fingerprint. And we're really proud of the material that we wrote and the performances we captured. There's some really heavy shit, some really ugly stuff, some real beautiful stuff, some weirdo trippy shit… it's good!" Cantrell also addressed the fact that it has been five years since the release of ALICE IN CHAINS' last album. "It's a lot of work doing a record," he said, "and I think it gets harder the older we get. But we just wait until we're ready and until we have enough material that's up to the ALICE IN CHAINS standard, and then we do what we do. This is just the racket that we make when we get together." "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" was the band's second disc with singer William Duvall, who joined in 2006 following the death of Layne Staley. "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" sold 62,000 copies in its first week of release. It followed up 2009's "Black Gives Way To Blue". The first two singles from "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here", "Hollow" and "Stone", both hit No. 1 on the rock radio airplay charts, while the album itself debuted on the Billboard album chart at No. 2.

8 layer pcb stackup

An 8 layer pcb stackup is to add 2 a lot of routing layers or to boost EMC performance by adding 2 a lot of planes. though we tend to see samples of each cases, i’d say that the bulk of eight layer board stack-ups area unit wont to improve EMC performance instead of add extra routing layers. the proportion increase in value of associate degree eight-layer board over a six-layer board is a smaller amount than the proportion increase in going from four to 6 layers, therefore creating it easier to justify the price increase for improved EMC performance.  Therefore, most eight-layer boards (and all those that we’ll consider here) comprises four wiring layers and 4 planes.An 8 layer pcb stackup provides United States of America, for the primary time, the chance to simply satisfy all of the 5 originally expressed objectives. though there area unit several stack-ups potential, we’ll solely discuss many of them that have established themselves by providing glorious EMC performance.  As expressed higher than, eight layers is sometimes wont to improve the EMC performance of the board, to not increase the amount of routing layers.The 8 layer pcb stackup provides ample routing house for multiple power islands. within the higher than typical pile up all communication layers have a minimum of one referencing power plane. the ability and ground layer within the center provides sensible inhume plane capacitance. If your system has several power islands and these power islands area unit next to the lowest layer, they are doing not have enough power to ground capacitance. conjointly the come path for the high speed signals in bottom layer (signal4) talk over with the ability plane that isn’t adjacent to a ground plane. See More

          Las seis noticias que debes conocer hoy, viernes 10 de agosto      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
[Si te perdiste las seis noticias imprescindibles de ayer, puedes leerlas haciendo click en este enlace] 1. Las visitas al Valle de los Caídos se disparan un 50% en julio tras el anuncio de Sánchez de la exhumación. Desde que el Gobierno socialista anunció su voluntad de exhumar los restos de Francisco Franco del Valle de los Caídos, el mausoleo que alberga los restos del dictador ha experimentado un particularísimo «efecto llamada». El Valle de los Caídos ha aumentado considerablemente sus visitas en las últimas semanas, tras conocerse la intención del Gobierno de Pedro Sánchez de exhumar los restos de Francisco Franco, con 12.737 visitantes más en julio que en el mismo mes del año pasado, lo que supone un incremento del 49,8%. Según los datos facilitados a ABC por Patrimonio Nacional el número de personas que visitaron el Valle pasó de 25.532 en julio de 2017 a 38.269 el mes pasado. El dato de julio de 2018 es muy superior al del mismo mes en los años precedentes: 24.449 en 2016, 19.968 en 2015 o los 21.838 de 2014. El cambio de tendencia es evidente, porque entre enero y mayo de este año el dato de visitantes estaba siendo inferior al del mismo periodo del pasado ejercicio. 2. Acusados del «atentado» a Maduro fueron denunciados como «infiltrados» chavistas en la Resistencia. Los datos aportados por las autoridades de Venezuela sobre el supuesto atentado a Nicolás Maduro sigue planteando incógnitas. Dos acusados por el régimen de estar directamente implicados en la organizadores del presunto ataque con drones durante un desfile militar en la avenida Bolívar de Caracas el pasado sábado, Rayder Russo y Osman Delgado, habían sido señalados por el policía rebelde Óscar Pérez de ser unos «infiltrados» del chavismo. De acuerdo con el resultado de las investigaciones que Maduro ha ofrecido hasta el momento, Russo y Delgado habrían tenido un papel clave en la organización de la logística y de la financiación de la operación. Pero, además, serían dos figuras importantes dentro de la argumentación oficial para sostener la acusación de que Colombia y Estados Unidos estuvieron detrás del «atentado». 3. Ryanair pierde más de 3.000 millones en Bolsa por la oleada de huelgas. La oleada de huelgas a la que ha tenido que hacer frente Ryanair este año está generando una factura millonaria para la compañía. No solo ha lastrado su beneficio, que bajó un 20% en su primer trimestre fiscal hasta los 319 millones. También se ha llevado más de 3.000 millones de euros de su valor bursátil, que ha caído desde los 18.700 millones que marcaba a finales de marzo -cuando comenzaron los primeros paros- hasta los 15.500 de ayer. Una caída que todavía puede aumentar, teniendo en cuenta que la compañía afronta hoy una nueva huelga de pilotos en Bélgica, Suecia, Irlanda y Alemania. Está por ver si finalmente Holanda, donde Ryanair ha acudido a los tribunales, se suma a las protestas, que afectarán a unos 67.000 pasajeros. 4. PP y Cs cargan contra la «agencia de colocación» de Sánchez. Los nombramientos del Gobierno de Pedro Sánchez -que ha puesto a gran parte de los miembros la Ejecutiva del PSOE en puestos de alta responsabilidad en la administración del Estado- están en el punto de mira de la oposición, y el fichaje de Begoña Gómez, esposa del presidente, por el Instituto de Empresa no ha hecho otra cosa que generar más dudas sobre su criterio a la hora de designar a los resposables de las instituciones públicas. Tanto PP como Ciudadanos cargaron ayer contra el presidente tras conocerse, el miércoles, que Gómez será directora general del IE África, un centro de nueva creación dedicado a promover el emprendimiento y el desarrollo de proyectos de acción social en el continente. Aunque el presidente de los populares, Pablo Casado, rechazó pronunciarse sobre el tema por «respeto», el PP colgó un mensaje en sus redes sociales para ironizar sobre la «agencia de colocación» del líder del Ejecutivo. 5. El test que predice en qué enfermos de cáncer funciona la inmunoterapia. El tratamiento del cáncer tiene en la inmunoterapia una de sus bazas más prometedoras. Pero esta estrategia que se sirve de las defensas naturales del organismo para luchar contra los tumores aún no es perfecta. Melanoma y cáncer de pulmón son por ahora, los tumores donde la inmunoterapia parece más eficaz, aunque lo hace de forma desigual. Mientras algunos enfermos responden de forma espectacular, en otros la terapia no funciona en absoluto y no se sabe por qué ocurre. Ahora investigadores españoles, en colaboración con otros centros internacionales, han descubierto cómo predecir si el tratamiento funcionará. El equipo de médicos y científicos liderado por Manel Esteller del Instituto de Investigación Biomédica de Bellvitge, ha descubierto una firma epigenética que anticipa la respuesta de los pacientes con cáncer de pulmón. 6. Nadal elimina con autoridad a Wawrinka. El tenista español Rafa Nadal hizo hoy valer su autoridad y se impuso al suizo Stan Wawrinka por 7-5 y 7-6 (4) en octavos de final del Masters 1000 de Toronto. Nadal, no obstante, tuvo que esforzarse para controlar el partido ya que, tras superar el primer set, en el segundo Wawrinka se puso por delante al romper el servicio al español que hizo lo propio e igualó el marcador a seis juegos. En la muerte súbita, Nadal se adelantó y dispuso de tres pelotas de partido, en la segunda de las cuales sentenció el choque tras dos horas y ocho minutos. Marin Cilic, se impuso al argentino Diego Schwartzman por 6-3 y 6-2, lo que le convierte en el próximo rival de Nadal.

           The International Nothing - In Doubt We Trust (Ftarri, 2018) ***½       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


By Martin Schray
 

For 18 years now The International Nothing, a Berlin-based psycho-acoustic clarinet duo consisting of Michael Thieke and Kai Fagaschinski, have been dealing with silence and how to fill it. John Cage once said that silence was a state of consciousness and that it had nothing to do with the absence of sound in a certain space because there is no such thing as absolute silence. The reason was that we lived in an urban space which was full of sound (even in a dead room we hear the sound of our heartbeat, our blood circulation, our nervous system).

The International Nothing fill this space with their multilayered sound sculptures using multiphonics, beat frequencies, scratching, clapping of the keys, microtonal shifts and dark drones. All these elements are integral parts of their musical syntax.

Both musicians are well known as improvisers in Berlin’s prolific Echtzeit scene, but in this project all you hear is two clarinets (Fagaschinski on the right channel, Thieke on the left) – no overdubs, no electronic manipulation and no improvisation! In Doubt We Trust is a through-composed piece of art.
Additionally, if it comes to sound, dynamics seem to be important to Fagaschinski and Thieke: the pulse of the sounds, the crescendo and decrescendo in the room, the overlapping of voices, volume, timbre, the same notes with a different focus and harmonics. As to the structure the music doesn’t have a real beginning or end, it’s process-like. The composition’s not an object which is the sum of its single parts, it’s a continually moving complex unit.

In Doubt We Trust, a 37:37 pulsating, shivering, quicksilvery wave of muted clarinet noises, creates liquid sound columns, you can hear the breathing, the very nature of the production of music. Just recently a group of scientists found out that bowhead whales serenade each other with improvisations from a vast repertoire of song. The diversity and variability in these songs are rivaled only by a few species of songbirds, their songs are complex musical phrases that are not genetically hard-wired but must be learned. I imagine the sounds of The International Nothing quite close to those of these fantastic animals.

So, close your windows, pull down the shades, imagine you’re under water and experience this wonderful trip of tone and timbre.

In Doubt We Trust is available as a CD and a download, a vinyl release will follow with some delay.

You can listen to the complete album and buy it here:

Il drone dell'idraulico governativo in pensione Wu Guoyong sorvola rumorosamente il campo di cadaveri dalle molte sfumature intermittenti. Ricordi che svaniscono di un'epoca gloriosa, appena cominciata e già trascorsa sul finire di quell'esperienza breve. Ma intensa. Ruote all'aria, abbandonate, col sellino che s'incastra nel manubrio e in mezzo ai tubi, le catene e le altre parti di un milione (o più) di altri velocipedi dimenticati. Schiacciata, soffocata...

Any policy that puts government in charge of picking winners and losers in the economy is going to be subject to favoritism by politicians. Trump's tariffs and the Commerce Department's authority to pick which businesses are eligible for exemptions are ripe for such politically-motivated favoritism. This is what the swamp looks like.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., demanded on Thursday that the Trump administration better explain its process for how some companies are granted exemptions to steel tariffs, claiming that businesses in his Midwest state find decisions to be “arbitrary.”

Johnson, whose state hosts the second most manufacturing-heavy job market in the U.S., wrote to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross that the administration’s denial of an exemption request for one Wisconsin business cost it $2.6 million.

"The Department's denial of the exclusion request has resulted in [one] Wisconsin business incurring an additional $2.6 million tariff cost that can not be used to expand production or to pay salaries of new employees," wrote Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee. "Across the country, many businesses share the same frustration about the difficult and time-consuming process."

Many industries, including the oil and gas sector, have complained about the Commerce Department’s process for considering exemptions to President Trump's 25 percent tariff on steel.


After the Supreme Court ruled that businesses weren't exempt from state taxes on internet business even when those businesses weren't based in the state in South Dakota v. Wayfair, small businesses are starting to feel the burden. One owner of such a business explains how his business is suffering.
As a business owner, my main problem isn’t the money my company pays in state taxes. Rather, it’s the compliance and paperwork we’re forced to undertake to make sure we don’t violate the law unintentionally. My employees and I must figure out what is taxable and what isn’t in all 50 states and countless localities. Is a bolt taxable? In some states that depends on whether the bolt is used to repair office equipment, which is taxable, or to fix manufacturing equipment, which isn’t.

Taxes on services can be equally challenging. Texas taxes different kinds of services at different rates and requires vendors to fill out their own payment permits. For my supply-chain-management company, that means deciding which of three information-technology categories describes our services. To ensure accuracy, my employees and I have to determine whether each customer will use our products for wholesale purposes or whether they are the final user. Texas also allows its 254 counties and more than 1,000 municipalities to impose their own sales levies, which must be calculated individually.

Then come the audits. Our company has been audited as many as five times in a year each year. One audit from Illinois demanded rental-car and hotel receipts in an attempt to apply the nexus standard to services we delivered to a customer. So each time we do a custom installation or on-site maintenance, we need to check with our accountant to determine if we’re establishing nexus.
This is a problem that only Congress can address. We need some sort of clear standards for the entire country that businesses can follow without losing a fortune in paperwork. This should be an issue that would not trigger partisan battles. Every politician should be concerned with keeping small businesses from going under. Sadly, I have no faith in either party passing such a common-sense bill.


This is so very scary. And, again, I don't have any faith in what the government is doing to protect us.
Kremlin-connected cyber-criminals are capable of turning off our electric power from afar while power-plant employees watch helplessly.

In the last two weeks, the Department of Homeland Security held four briefings, including one in New York City on July 31, warning that Russian hackers are already practicing how to throw the switch and cause a blackout in the United States. We’d have no lights, no gas at the pump, no life support in hospitals, no mass transit, no food supply.

Yet nearly all Washington pols are ignoring the danger. To the public, “power” means electricity. To self-absorbed politicians, “power” means elections, votes and protecting their seats.

That disconnect explains why they’re in a frenzy over Russians hacking into campaign email accounts instead of dealing with the far larger peril of Russians hacking into the electric grid.

Russians have invaded more than 100 American electric-power companies in the past four years. DHS reports these Russians “got to the point where they could have thrown switches” and shut off power, but didn’t.

In Ukraine, they did. They flipped the switches on three Ukrainian utilities on Dec. 23, 2015. Local engineers in control rooms sat stunned as cyber-criminals operated controls remotely, plunging hundreds of thousands of people into frigid darkness. That was the first long-distance cyber-attack to take down a power grid.

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen says the threat against American power grids is equivalent to a “Cat 5 hurricane.”
Isn't this an issue that our elected representatives can come together to work on?


I thought this was one of the funniest stories this past week.
Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell The Daily Beast that Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the infamous former Apprentice star who followed Trump to the White House, secretly recorded conversations with the president—conversations she has since leveraged while shopping her forthcoming “tell-all” book, bluntly titled UNHINGED.

For months, it has been rumored that Manigault had clandestinely recorded on her smartphone “tapes” of unspecified private discussions she had in the West Wing. Audio actually does exist, and even stars Manigault’s former boss.

One person confirmed to The Daily Beast they had heard at least one of her recordings featuring President Trump. Multiple sources familiar with the “Omarosa tapes” described the recorded conversations between Trump and Manigault as anodyne, everyday chatter, but said they did appear to feature Trump’s voice, either over the phone or in-person.

The mere existence of such recordings represents a dramatic betrayal of trust by a onetime confidante who has since abandoned years of professed loyalty to the president and has apparently decided to profit off her years of closeness to Trump.
Just a few weeks ago we learned that Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had been secretly taping Trump. So it turns out that the only people known to have been secretly taping Trump was, not the Obama administration as Trump had alleged, but his personal lawyer and the woman he brought in from "The Apprentice" to serve in some undefined capacity in his White House. Yup, he picks the very best people. That might be the most clearly disproven campaign promise from Trump.


Why wasn't this a bigger story with 24-hour cable news coverage? It has everything the media usually laps up - the potential of school violence and horrible abuse of children.

Ah, could this be the reason?
Eleven children were recently rescued from the “filthy” compound, which police say appears to be run by Siraj Wahhaj and Lucas Morten. Wahhaj, the son of a prominent imam, was accused in court documents released Wednesday of training the children on the compound to commit school shootings.

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said Tuesday that he believes Wahhaj and Morten are “extremist[s] of the Muslim belief.” Wahhaj’s father is a controversial cleric with ties to Muslim rights groups and was an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing case.
Apparently, only Fox News talked about the religious extremism of the leaders in the compound and the connection to a cleric connected to the first WTC bombing.

Just imagine if this were a rightist group with connections to some Christian denomination or the KKK or the NRA. We all know how the establishment media would have treated that news. But just as with Major Hasan, the killer at Fort Hood, the connections between Hasan and a radical Muslim cleric connected to the 9/11 terrorists are being downplayed. In that case, it was the FBI who wanted to downplay those connections.

By strange coincidence, guess who was the head of the FBI who was responsible for the Bureau's closing its eyes both before and after the murders in investigating Hasan? Robert Mueller.
Last Thursday, as the jury in the trial of Nidal Hasan was deliberating, outgoing FBI Director Robert Mueller appeared on CBS News and discussed a string of emails between the Fort Hood shooter and Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Islamic cleric with ties to the 9/11 hijackers. The FBI had intercepted the messages starting almost a year before Hasan’s 2009 shooting rampage, and Mueller was asked whether “the bureau dropped the ball” by failing to act on this information. He didn’t blink: “No, I think, given the context of the discussions and the situation that the agents and the analysts were looking at, they took appropriate steps.”

In the wake of the Fort Hood attacks, the exchanges between Awlaki and Hasan—who was convicted of murder on Friday—were the subject of intense speculation. But the public was given little information about these messages. While officials claimed that they were “fairly benign,” the FBI blocked then-Sen. Joseph Lieberman’s efforts to make them public as part of a two-year congressional investigation into Fort Hood. The military judge in the Hasan case also barred the prosecutor from presenting them, saying they would cause “unfair prejudice” and “undue delay.”

As it turns out, the FBI quietly released the emails in an unclassified report on the shooting, which was produced by an investigative commission headed by former FBI director William H. Webster last year. And, far from being “benign,” they offer a chilling glimpse into the psyche of an Islamic radical. The report also shows how badly the FBI bungled its Hasan investigation and suggests that the Army psychiatrist’s deadly rampage could have been prevented.

Hasan first appeared on the bureau’s radar in December of 2008—nearly a year before the Fort Hood massacre—when he emailed Awlaki to ask him whether serving in the US military was compatible with the Muslim faith. He also asked whether Awlaki considered those who died attacking their fellow soldiers “shaheeds,” or martyrs.

At the time, Awlaki, who was killed by a US drone strike in 2011, was emerging as Al Qaeda’s chief English-speaking propagandist. He was also known to have ties to several of the 9/11 hijackers, two of whom attended his mosque in San Diego.


Any time there is the need for a recount or for intensive coverage of a close election, we see the sorts of mistakes and problems that seem to be distressingly common in elections. For example, the Kansas GOP gubernatorial primary this week.
The Republican primary for governor in Kansas was already much too close to call, with just 191 votes separating Gov. Jeff Colyer from the first-place candidate, Kris W. Kobach, after the state reported its initial count on Wednesday.

But a discrepancy emerged Thursday that reduced Mr. Kobach’s lead by 100 votes, demonstrating how in flux the race remains as mail-in ballots continue to arrive and as the state’s 105 counties prepare to review thousands of provisional ballots.

The halving of Mr. Kobach’s lead came after officials in rural Thomas County, in northwestern Kansas, noticed that the state had recorded 422 votes for Mr. Colyer when he had actually received 522. The change meant that Mr. Colyer in fact carried Thomas County and moved him within 91 votes of Mr. Kobach in the statewide tally. (Mr. Kobach received 466 votes in that county.)
We can all remember such stories from the Florida recount in 2000 or the Minnesota Senate campaign in 2008.
As the Wall Street Journal's John Fund reports, Minnesota Democrat Al Franken’s narrow, 312-vote victory in 2008 over incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman may have come as the result of people being allowed to vote who, under existing law, shouldn’t have been.
It's as if a veil is pulled back to show us how fallible our vote counting really is. I suppose this is to be expected when humans are involved, but it really is dismaying.

A new algorithm could allow drones to reduce collisions between birds and planes#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A lot has been made of the dangers of drones mixing with other aircraft, but one team of engineers is exploring how they can help guard planes from threats rather than present new ones. The work centers on a new algorithm developed specifically to allow a drone to shepherd birds away from flight paths like robotic aerial sheepdogs, and the early results suggest that this could prove an effective way to cut costs and improve safety.

          Drohne fliegt über eine Farm - doch es ist gar keine Farm, sondern etwas viel Beunruhigenderes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Was sich hinter den Zäunen der gigantischen Tierfarmen des US-Unternehmens Smithfield Foods verbirgt, war lange Zeit ein Geheimnis. Video-Aufnahmen sind verboten. Unerwünschte Besucher lässt man erst gar nicht auf das Gelände. 

Der Regisseur Mark Devries wollte der Welt trotzdem zeigen, was auf den Fabrikfarmen vor sich geht und wählte einen kreativen Weg, das zu tun: Seit 2012 lässt er Drohnen über das Gelände der Höfe fliegen. Die dabei entstandenen Aufnahmen sahen bisher Millionen Menschen weltweit. Doch Vorsicht: Sie sind nichts für zart besaitete Gemüter.

Drohne deckt Ungeheuerliches auf

Hinter den Zäunen verbergen sich riesige Gülle-Seen. Sie sind der Ursprung des bestialischen Gestanks, der die Anwohner des Gebiets seit Jahren quält. Die Gülle im Grundwasser und in der Luft hat Studien zufolge verheerende Folgen für die Gesundheit von Menschen und Tieren in der Umgebung einer solchen Anlage.

Von Devries auf die von der Drohne gefilmten Gülle-Seen angesprochen ließ Smithfield Foods verlauten: „Wir halten strenge Umweltvorschriften ein, die ständige Verbesserungen erfordern und die Standards der meisten Behörden übertreffen. Unsere Verarbeitungssysteme sind durch Kontrolleure der Kommunen und Behörden geprüft und unsere Farme werden regelmäßig inspiziert.“

Die Umwelt-Verschmutzung ist nicht das einzige, das die Fabrikfarmen so abstoßend macht. Devries berichtet außerdem von tierquälerischen Praktiken wie dem Kastieren männlicher Ferkel ohne Betäubung. Die unheimlichen Aufnahmen der Drohne könnt ihr hier sehen:

Los hechos ocurrieron en la sucursal ubicada en Díaz Mirón y el entronque de la avenida Lafragua, de la colonia Los Maestros, donde los delincuentes lograron ingresar para llevarse tres cajas fuertes.

Los ladrones aprovecharon la nula vigilancia y llegaron durante la madrugada aprovechando que hay un lote baldío junto, por lo que lograron abrir el boquete donde ingresaron y se apoderaron de las cajas. 

Fue hasta la mañana que se percataron del robo y dieron parte a las autoridades, indicando que cuando llegaron los empleados y descubrieron que estaba el desorden y dieron parte a la Policía que llegó a tomar conocimiento de lo acontecido pero nada pudieron hacer ya que tenía horas de haber sucedido el atraco.

Motivo por el cual el representante legal de la empresa se espera presente la denuncia y determine el monto de lo robado en las cajas fuertes, con el fin de localizar a los ladrones que tuvieron que ser grabados por las cámaras de seguridad.

Drone Security & Surveillance Operations Made Easy

Drones have already been in use in the security and surveillance industry, bringing a significant change in how the operations are carried out. However, most current aerial security and surveillance systems are either tied to a particular drone hardware, or need significant manual intervention during operation. These solutions lack critical features and software capabilities, such as, AI and machine learning for automated alerts, automatic mission scheduling, compatibility with wide-range of drone hardware, etc. This makes it expensive, and often infeasible, to deploy the drone-based security/surveillance solutions at scale.Drones have already established the value that they bring to the table, in terms of mobility, unrestricted bird’s eye view and accessibility. The focus is now on efficiencies and realising a meaningful return on investment for wide commercial adoption. This calls for integration of “intelligence” and “connectivity” with drones, to build completely automated and integrated workflows.FlytSecurity offers a plug-and-play, drone-agnostic, SaaS platform to quickly deploy and scale drone-based automated security operations. This significantly cuts down the cost of development and time to market, translating into an attractive ROI for the drone security service providers. With a wide range of features, like, 4G/LTE connectivity over unlimited range, live video, control and telemetry, fleet management (for simultaneous coverage of a large, distributed facilities), AI/ML for automated alerts, automated mission schedules, FlytSecurity enables fully-automated 24×7 operations at scale. Compatibility with any drone hardware, further makes FlytSecurity easy to adapt to variety of customer requirements (large/small drone, long/short endurance, quad-planes/multicopters, thermal/RGB sensor, etc.), and makes it easy to upgrade hardware at any time.For early access to FlytSecurity, please visit: https://flytsecurity.aiRead how FlytSecurity is transforming drone security & surveillance operationsSee More

          Washington Allies with ISIS as Great Power Conflict Trumps “War on Terror”      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



The “National Defense Strategy” document released at the beginning of this year declared bluntly that the nearly two-decade focus by the US military on the so-called “global war on terrorism” had come to an end. In its place, a new strategic orientation was being introduced based on preparing for “great power” confrontation, i.e., war with nuclear-armed Russia and China.
This was the first such defense strategy to be issued by the Pentagon in over a decade and expressed the urgency with which Washington views the preparations for a third world war.
A particularly crude and criminal outcome of this policy shift is becoming increasingly apparent in three major theaters where US forces are engaged in active combat operations. Reports from Yemen, Syria and Afghanistan provide firm evidence that the US and its local proxies are allying themselves with and employing the services of elements of ISIS and Al Qaeda in the pursuit of Washington’s broader strategic interests.
In Yemen, hundreds, if not thousands, of fighters from Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), branded by the US government as the “most dangerous” affiliate of the loose international Al Qaeda network, have been recruited by Washington’s closest allies in the Arab world, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, to fight as foot soldiers in the near-genocidal US-backed war that these Persian Gulf oil monarchies have been waging against the impoverished country of Yemen since 2015.
According to an investigative report published Monday by the Associated Press, the Saudi-led coalition “cut secret deals with al-Qaida fighters, paying some to leave key cities and towns and letting others retreat with weapons, equipment and wads of looted cash… Hundreds more were recruited to join the coalition itself.”
It added that “Key participants in the pacts said the US was aware of the arrangements and held off on any drone strikes.”
“Elements of the US military are clearly aware that much of what the US is doing in Yemen is aiding AQAP and there is much angst about that,” Michael Horton, a senior analyst at the Jamestown Foundation, a CIA-connected Washington think tank, told the AP.
“However, supporting the UAE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against what the US views as Iranian expansionism takes priority over battling AQAP and even stabilizing Yemen,” Horton added.
This is a gross understatement. Washington is providing indispensable military support for a war that has reduced millions of Yemenis to the brink of starvation. It is prepared to wipe out much of the country’s population in order to bolster its strategic position and that of the reactionary Arab regimes with which it is allied against the perceived threat of Iranian influence to US regional hegemony.
The war has escalated in recent days in the ongoing siege of the Yemeni Red Sea port of Hodeidah, which was green-lighted by the Trump administration. The UN has warned that a quarter of a million people could lose their lives in this operation, while millions more across the country may die of starvation if it shuts down the port, the sole lifeline for food, fuel and medicine for at least 70 percent of the population.
Recruiting Al Qaeda fighters to slaughter Yemenis in this immense and bloody war crime is entirely consistent with US policy.
In regard to Syria, meanwhile, Russia’s Defense Ministry last Thursday issued a statement warning that ISIS has increasingly concentrated its forces in the area around al-Tanaf, near the Syrian-Iraqi border, where the US military maintains a military base and has unilaterally declared a 34-mile exclusion zone around it. US troops there have provided training to so-called “rebels” opposing the government of President Bashar al-Assad and appear to be providing a security screen for ISIS.
Launched on the pretext of carrying out the “annihilation” of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the illegal US military intervention in Syria has repeatedly seen the US and its local proxies facilitate the flight of ISIS from besieged cities. The most notorious incident was in Raqqa, where a column of vehicles carried 4,000 ISIS fighters and family members, along with their weapons, ammunition and explosives, into the eastern Syrian desert.
The goal was to turn these fighters against government troops and aid in the US operation to deprive Damascus of control over Syria’s oil and gas fields, which are vital for the reconstruction of the war-ravaged country. The US aims in Syria are bound up with wider preparations for war not only against Iran, but against Russia as well.
Finally, in regard to Afghanistan, where the US has waged war for nearly 17 years, the New York Times published an article Sunday titled, “Are ISIS Fighters Prisoners or Honored Guests of the Afghan Government?”
The article reported how two senior commanders of ISIS, along with 250 of their fighters, had surrendered to the US-backed Afghan National Army to avoid being routed by the Taliban in northern Afghanistan.
“If they were prisoners, however, it was hard to tell,” the Times reported. “The government arranged for them to stay in a guesthouse in the provincial capital of Sheberghan. Guards were posted around it not to keep the insurgents in, but to keep their potential enemies out, according to the provincial governor. Although the fighters were disarmed, they were allowed to keep their cell phones and other personal possessions.”
The Times added,
“The dubious nature of the Islamic State surrender has proved a propaganda bonanza for the Taliban.”
The newspaper does not provide any details on the nature of this “propaganda,” but it does report that the ISIS fighters “were ferried from the battlefield in Afghan Army helicopters, avoiding a potentially dangerous journey on the roads.”
The obvious conclusion from this account is that ISIS has functioned as a US asset in Afghanistan, attacking the Taliban and carrying out atrocities aimed at precluding any negotiated resolution of the conflict that does not serve US geo-strategic interests in the region.
This more or less open alliance between the Pentagon and ISIS, a supposed prime target in multiple US military interventions across three continents, is not so much a new policy as the revival of an old one that was never fully abandoned, despite the inflated rhetoric of that greatest of all “fake news” stories, the “global war on terrorism.”
Al Qaeda, the original supposed arch enemy in this unending war, was the direct product of CIA and US support for the Islamist mujahideen in Afghanistan against the Soviet-backed government in the 1980s. Since then, these elements have had a dual use for US imperialism, serving at one stage as proxy forces in wars for regime change, and at another as a pretext for US interventions in the name of fighting terror.
Under the mantle of the “war on terrorism,” successive US governments, Democratic and Republican alike, have not only conducted wars whose victims number in the millions, but also carried out an unrelenting attack on democratic rights, from domestic spying to censoring the Internet.
The emerging international alliance between the Pentagon and ISIS only serves to expose the real interests underlying these policies, which are bound up with the waging of war to offset US imperialism’s loss of economic preeminence and defend its crumbling global hegemony, and domestic repression to sustain a social order characterized by the most extreme inequality in modern American history.
