           Comment on Leading House Dems warn Netanyahu against promise to annex West Bank settlements by Misterioso       Comment   Translate Page      
It is now nearly 71 years since the criminal entity known as "Israel" or the "Jewish state" was forcibly established in historic Palestine with the assistance of the Truman administration by Zionist Jews of foreign origin through armed might, several massacres, mass rape and intimidation leading eventually to the dispossession and expulsion of about 1,250,000 indigenous Christian and Muslim Arab inhabitants by the summer of 1967 and the brutal occupation of their ancestral homeland since. Seventy years is a long time. And yet, "Israel" is still utterly dependent on the U.S. financially and geopolitically. Therein lies its greatest weakness. The U.S. will not be "Israel's" lackey for ever. Indeed, as recent events attest, cracks are increasingly appearing in their relationship. Americans, including all important youth and Jews are seeing "Israel" for the insatiable, racist, conniving, expansionist monster it is. Time, demographics and the thrust of 21st century geopolitics are with the Palestinians. The desperation of Netanyahu and his fellow thugs, ethnic cleansers, thieves and mass murderers to "legitimize" "Israel" has been well illustrated by his recent cozying up to brutal, fascistic dictatorships around the world, including that of Brazil's leader (hosted recently in occupied Jerusalem by Netanyahu), President Jair Bolsonaro, whose days may well be numbered: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-47865386?intlink_from_url=https://www.bbc.com/news/topics/cdr1vzk8ngvt/jair-bolsonaro&link_location=live-reporting-story "Is the honeymoon period over for Brazil's Bolsonaro?"

Sudan coup leader Awad Ibn Auf steps down

By BBC

The head of Sudan's military council has stood down a day after leading a coup that toppled long-time leader Omar al-Bashir amid a wave of protests.

Defence Minister Awad Ibn Auf announced his decision on state TV, naming as his successor Lt-Gen Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan.

The army has said it will stay in power for two years, followed by elections.

But protest leaders say they will not leave the streets until the military hands over to a civilian government.

Mr Bashir's downfall followed months of unrest that began in December over rising prices.

Mr Ibn Auf was head of military intelligence during the Darfur conflict in the 2000s. The US imposed sanctions on him in 2007.



The new man in charge is also a top military figure, but the Associated Press news agency reports that his record is cleaner than other Sudanese generals. He is also said to have met with protesters to hear their views.

Mr Bashir has been indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity over the Darfur conflict.

However, the military council has said it will not extradite Mr Bashir, who denies the charges, although he may be put on trial in Sudan.

How did the latest drama unfold?

Despite Mr Bashir's removal on Thursday, demonstrators had refused to disperse, camping out outside army headquarters in the capital, Khartoum, in defiance of a curfew.

In its first response, the military council came out and denied it was seeking power, telling the protesters that they would decide the country's future, while the army maintained public order.

A few hours later, Mr Ibn Auf announced he was resigning and would be replaced by Lt-Gen Burhan.

"In order to ensure the cohesion of the security system, and the armed forces in particular, from cracks and strife, and relying on God, let us begin this path of change," he said.

Protesters celebrated his abrupt departure but the Sudan Professionals Association, which has been spearheading the demonstrations, later announced that the sit-in would continue.

"We call on the armed forces to ensure the immediate transfer of power to a transitional civilian government," they said on Facebook.

They further called for the abolition of "arbitrary decisions by leaders that do not represent the people" and the detention of "all symbols of the former regime who were involved in crimes against the people".

"Until these demands are fully met, we must continue with our sit-in at the General Command of the Armed Forces," the SPA said.

Meanwhile, police said at least 16 people had been killed by stray bullets at the protests on Thursday and Friday.

          Welsh Schools Tackle Period Poverty By Doling Out Tampons And Pads At Schools      Comment   Translate Page      


It's a Saturday! It is beautiful out (at least in Chicago)! And yet, unfortunately for us, all of the news out there today is either about Coachella or extremely depressing. Not very fun for an open thread! And while, you know, I could probably go on for a bit about this gaggy bit from Radar about how Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp are are reportedly "partying down" at Coachella (at least about Lisa Rinna's unfortunate pants), this is a political site and not a "Robyn yells about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" site (though for the record, Team LVP. Duh.).

Thus, in order to find something nice to end our day on, I had to go across the pond (not literally) for this good news about how schools in Wales are giving out free menstrual products at schools so that anyone who cannot afford them will not have to miss school -- a real thing that happens, unfortunately.


Via BBC:

First Minister Mark Drakeford announced the cash, to be made available to councils immediately, at Welsh Labour conference on Saturday.'

"It's unthinkable that young women could be forced to miss days of their education simply because they can't access or afford period products," said education minister Kirsty Williams.

"We're committed to tackling this inequality in Wales and this funding will help make period products available to learners in all schools, free of charge and in the most dignified way possible."

That is pretty darned awesome. Good for Wales!

Period poverty -- the inability to afford menstrual products -- is a problem for schoolchildren in the US as well. A recent study showed that the problem keeps nearly 1 in 5 girls in the US home during their period, disrupting their education. Unlike food and certain other necessities, menstrual products cannot be purchased with SNAP or WIC. Because they are not classified as medical devices by the IRS (although the FDA does classify them this way), they cannot be paid for out of pre-tax dollars in health savings accounts or flex accounts. This means that there are a hell of a lot of people in this country who cannot afford to buy menstrual products, and that is messed up considering the very large chunk of our population that needs them.

What Wales is doing is great, and it's certainly something we could and should replicate here in America. Hopefully, when our government is less horrible, we will!

And with that, this is now your open thread! Feel free to talk about your periods or how Lisa Rinna is the worst or whatever else your beautiful hearts desire!

          Augusta: Jennifer Kupcho Makes History      Comment   Translate Page      
Jennifer Kucpcho won the first ever women's tournament to be held on the perfectly manicured greens of the Augusta National. It's been the venue for the prestigious Masters tournament since 1934 and remains one of the most exclusive clubs in the world of sport. Membership is by invitation only and restricted to just 300 at any given time. Even when, then first women member was admitted back in 2012 - the former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in case you were wondering - the thought of them playing a tournament there seemed fanciful in a sport not known for its inclusivity. So Jennifer can truly claim to be a history maker - winner of the first Augusta National Women's Amateur Championship - to give it the full title! She tells Shari Vahl what her achievement means for women's golf and how important momentum is not lost. There are less than 500 days to go until the 2020 Olympic Games and for Mohamed Sbihi, he is aiming to make history. The 31 year old is part of the Great Britain Rowing team who have their sights on a sixth consecutive gold medal. Sbihi himself is an Olympic champion and is the first Muslim to be included in the GB squad. He now holds out hope for others who could follow his example into rowing. We are in Spain for one of the fiercest competitive derbies in the La Liga. Real Betis play Sevilla on Saturday and we take you behind the scenes at Real Betis where you will hear the Chief Executive Jose Miguel Lopez Catalan who joined the club two years ago with no football experience. He has been telling the BBC about how important family and fans are to the football club. The Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is set to retire at the end of the season and what better way than to bow out playing in the FA Cup final against Manchester City next month.Gomes is seeking FA Cup heaven and in his own words, says, he plans to answer his 'call from Jesus' and become a pastor as well as a football agent. One man who has followed that path is former Chelsea midfielder Gavin Peacock - he's now nestled in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in Canada and he told Shari Vahl how he made the transition from football to being a pastor himself.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

              REVIEW: Zune 2.0 - the best player on the market!      Comment   Translate Page      

    Originally posted on: http://tostringtheory.com/evjen/archive/2008/01/05/118281.aspx

    image

    I got one of the first Zune players when it came out. There were things that I liked/disliked about it. The worse thing about it was the software that it came with. It was clunky and not to practical so I really didn't end up using it that often. Though, with that said, Microsoft recently released the new 2.0 version of the Zune software which was basically a complete new software package. With the new software and the changes to the firmware that was made to the Zune player along with the client software upgrade - the Zune player is the best player on the market! It is better than IPOD and any of the other players out there. Here are some of the cool Zune features:

    image

    BIG Screen! Look at the size of this screen. You might be looking at this and think that the screen size is oddly shaped to watch a movie or something, but the video that is played in this plays sideways so that you turn the Zune player to the side and it is like a widescreen view of what you are looking at. You will find that this is one of the biggest screens for a media device on the market. Especially compare the size of this video screen to what you see for the IPOD and there is no comparison!

    One thing that I didn't like about the IPOD was that you are working with non-MP3 files - you couldn't just take your .mp3 files that you already have all over your system and just move those files to you player. The Zune player does make use of the .mp3 file extension - so moving over your already pre-existing files is a quick and easy thing to do.

    So, what kind of media can go on your Zune? - MP3s, movies (.mp4), podcasts, pictures, and there is even a radio. I have become completely addicted to the podcasts:

    image

    There is a directory of video and audio podcasts for you to subscribe to. You can also find your own podcasts and add them to your subscriptions. The Zune software will keep the latest number of versions available for you synced up to your player. So, for me, I have the latest three episodes of all my podcasts synced up to the player and can watch them on my computer (with the client software) or on my Zune player. It has become a kind of Tivo for me as I watch the NBC Nightly News and other news programs (the complete video program) on my computer in the morning with the software. I have never been so caught up with the news (from around the world as I love the BBC newscasts as well).

    Another nice thing about the Zune player is that with version 2.0 - it now has an exposed MAC address which is nice as the Zune player has wireless. This means that you can sync your Zune over your wireless network and also share items with other Zune players nearby.

              黑洞、国旗和国徽:暴风眼中的视觉中国触动了哪些神经      Comment   Translate Page      
    ,图片版权GETTY IMAGES
    Image caption引发争议的视觉中国交易平台将中国国旗和国歌相关图片也纳入了自己的版权范围。
    就在世界各地为人类首次拍摄到黑洞照片兴奋的时候,这张照片在中国引发了一场“知识产权”风波。
    处在风波中心的是知名视觉内容互联网版权交易平台“视觉中国”。内地网友发现,如果通过视觉中国网站使用这张图片,版权将受到限制。随后又爆出中国国旗与国徽图片在这个网站上版权也受限制。
    这让很多中国人不能接受。“国旗、国徽的版权也是贵公司的?”中国共青团中央官方微博4月11日向视觉中国发问道。
    这起事件还引来了中国政府的介入。天津市网信办表示,视觉中国“传播违法有害信息”,已经成立工作督导组进驻视觉中国网站,指导督促公司整改。
    这次版权争议给视觉中国带来巨大打击。12日视觉中国股票跌停,且网站暂停服务,恢复日期未定。
    根据视觉中国集团官网介绍,该公司旗下拥有中国“最大的优质数码视觉内容平台”,合作方包括CCTV、Getty Images、BBC、路透社等中外图片社、影视机构及版权机构。

    黑洞、国旗与国徽

    这是人类首张真实的黑洞照片,之前类似的图片都是出自艺术家笔下。图片版权REUTERS
    Image caption就在世界各地为人类首次拍摄到黑洞照片兴奋的时候,这张照片在中国引发了一场知识产权风波。
    最初视觉中国上的黑洞照片页面显示,图片为编辑图片,如用于商业用途需要联系视觉中国。
    对此欧洲南方天文台(ESO)称,视觉中国的版权主张不合法,且从未就黑洞图片联系过ESO。
    而在中国国旗与国徽的图片也显示为编辑图片,且国徽图片还被标记为“限价图片”,如果用于内文价格不低于150元,整版跨页不低于500元,杂志封面不低于1000元,商业使用价格另议。
    随后视觉中国两次发表声明,称其通过合作伙伴获得黑洞图片的编辑类使用授权,版权人要求未经许可不得用作商用,且删除国旗、国徽图片,并表示对两张图片有审核不严责任,对此道歉。
    “这其实很正常,”中国大邦律师事务所合伙人、知识产权律师斯伟江告诉BBC中文。他解释称,这种平台一般遵循“避风港”原则,平台上的内容如果版权产生争议,且平台在接到有效通知后将内容删除,则平台不负法律责任。
    但事件之后仍在继续发酵。天津网信办称,针对视觉中国“传播违法有害信息”情况,11日约谈网站负责人,责令视觉中国网站立即停止“违法违规”行为,全面彻底整改。同时针对近期“图片类有害信息多发”的情况,启动专项行动,集中排查清理各网站、各环节的图片类有害信息。
    澳门大学政府与公共行政系副教授李亦然认为,网信办介入是因为国旗与国徽图片的问题。她表示,中国《国旗法》与《国徽法》规定,国徽、国旗不能用于商标与广告,其实暗含逻辑就是说不能商用,而视觉中国页面显示可以用于谋利,这显然是违反了国旗国徽法的“司法精神”。
    “网信办起到的是传声筒的作用,”李亦然说。“当一个事情引起很多人讨论的时候,网信办会关注到这个问题,之后如果发现有问题会去治理。”
    此外,另外一家中国图片内容平台全景网络主动全面审核自身产品,宣布暂停网站服务。“中国当局习惯进行全行业调查,因此自查是一种正常反应,”美国博钦律师事务所(Perkins Coie LLP)合伙人吉莫曼(James Zimmerman)告诉BBC中文。

    成为众矢之的

    ,图片版权BBC NEWS CHINESE
    这起事件在社交网络引发从网民到自媒体,甚至官方部门的愤怒及调侃。
    新浪微博上,“视觉中国”话题一直居高不下,“视觉中国道歉”相关内容阅读量已达2.9亿,讨论量近5万。
    《人民日报》4月11日晚发表微博,讨论版权保护与商业模式问题,并配有"不敢配图"字样的图案。新华社旗下新华网也在官方微博发问:“视觉中国”,咋啥都是你的?
    吉莫曼认为,视觉中国对自己并不拥有版权的东西却声明版权,“他们已经失控”。
    此前,视觉中国经常作为版权维权的一方出现在公众视线中。内地媒体“第一财经”报道称,两家“视觉系”公司作为知识产权侵权纠纷中的原告一方,涉及官司超过2000起。
    斯伟江认为,视觉中国之所以引起如此广泛愤怒可能与其经常打官司的“经营模式”有关。他称,中国普遍版权意识不强,很多人通常选择免费下载图片使用,因此视觉中国“得罪的人比较多”。

    中国的知识产权

    斯伟江表示,视觉中国打官司反映的是知识产权保护的一个“模糊地带”。“知识产权的运用是有张力的,有的人用的夸张一点,有的人保守一点,但如果消灭这个模糊地带反而会缩减知识产权的保护,”他说。
    也有声音认为,在版权意识并不强的中国,视觉中国起到的作用不能忽视。摄影师“常青藤”向BBC中文表示,他自己会将作品上传到这种平台,不少公司、媒体会无端盗用摄影师的作品,如果作品放在视觉中国这类平台上,平台可以在一定程度上保护他们的版权。
    “盗图最厉害的是自媒体,这次吵得最狠的也是这些人,”常青藤说。
    “现在问题比较多的是自媒体,”南京大学新闻学院教授白净告诉BBC中文。“自媒体不是一个机构,也很难被找到,大多时候是个人,也很难处罚很高的金额,”她认为,这场风波会让大家更多关注图片版权的问题,最终会是“一件好事”。
    近一年来,知识产权保护一直是中美贸易战中的主要议题,伴随两国越来越接近达成贸易协议,这个时间节点发生知识产权争议对中国可能有些尴尬。上海罗思法律事务所的专利律师帕佩佐治(Elliot Papageorgiou)对路透社说,眼下中国正积极在知识产权保护方面寻求认可,发生这种事情对中国来说“不是时候”。
    中国国家版权局12日表示,将图片版权保护纳入“剑网2019”专项行动,要求各图片公司合法合理维权,不得滥用权利。
    “视觉中国做的是中国知识产权法律规定允许的事情,如果因为知识产权问题导致这个平台关闭,那反而说明中国的知识产权法没有张力,”斯伟江这样表示。

              印尼总统大选焦点:到底有多少中国劳工在印尼工作      Comment   Translate Page      
    印尼总统佐科威图片版权GETTY IMAGES
    Image caption现任总统佐科威实施雄心勃勃的基建项目,欢迎来自中国的投资。
    印度尼西亚总统大选全国投票将于4月17日进行。
    在民族主义抬头的背景下,这次总统选举的主要焦点是就业和经济。为寻求连任,总统佐科威(Joko Widodo)已经开始实施雄心勃勃的基础设施建设。他欢迎中国投资,并接受外国公司的贷款和合作。
    他的竞争对手、退役将军普拉伯沃(Prabowo Subianto)指责总统卖国。反对派立法者声称,印尼正面临大规模中国劳工涌入。
    印尼长期存在反华情绪,暴力行为也时有发生。在选举年里,这些话题容易引发争议。社交媒体在印尼影响力很大,上面充斥着中国劳工不断增加的传闻,左右着投票。
    但实际情况是怎么样的呢?我们来看一下中国日益增长的角色背后的一些数据。

    网络谣言

    今年1月,数千名工人在苏拉威西岛(Sulawesi )莫罗瓦利(Morowali )的一个工业园区举行示威,这段视频在社交媒体上被广泛分享。该视频称,这些印尼工人在向中国移民表达抗议,称中国人挣得了更高的工资,抢走了当地人的饭碗。
    但印尼人力部部长否认这一说法。他在推特上发文称抗议针对的是工资水平而非中国工人。一名被控传播假信息的嫌疑人被警方逮捕。
    另外一些在社交媒体上得到广泛传播的图片里其实是机场的中国游客,但配上了耸人听闻的标题,称这些非法劳工正大量涌入印尼。
    上个月,一条声称外籍劳工正离开一家钢铁厂的视频在网络上爆火,这家爪哇(Java)的钢铁制造商被迫出面澄清到底雇佣了多少中国人。

    普拉伯沃怎么说?

    在竞选活动中,普拉伯沃并未直接提及中国工人,而是将矛头对准总统改变管理外籍劳工的策略,这一策略旨在加快外籍劳工来印尼工作的申请程序。
    退役军事将军普拉伯沃图片版权GETTY IMAGES
    Image caption退役将军普拉伯沃是总统佐科威的竞争对手。
    他曾表示,“我们并非反对外国人来印尼。但是,如果我们向外籍劳工敞开国门,也要照顾好自己的人民,否则我们还能有什么呢?”
    普拉伯沃还建议印尼向其他国家学习。他在竞选前的演说中表示,“(为了防止外籍劳工涌入,)美国想建立边境墙。而在澳大利亚,想进入的人被遣送到偏远的岛屿。”

    数据说明什么?

    印尼监管投资的政府机构称,中国是印尼第三大国外直接投资的来源地,仅次于新加坡和日本。数据显示,自2014年以来,中国企业在印尼投资达到近100亿美元。
    一些由中国支持的大项目遭遇严重困难。比如,投资高达60亿美元的雅加达至万隆高铁项目饱受延误。

    印尼外籍勞工從哪裡來?

    It’s hard to imagine how any jury could not come to the conclusion that Roundup herbicide causes cancer.

    Not long ago, a middle school groundskeeper be the name of Dewayne Johnson was awarded a victory after a jury found Bayer, who recently acquired Monsanto, to be guilty of causing / contributing to his terminal cancer. And that may just be the beginning.

    There are approximately 10,000 cancer cases pending against Monsanto when it comes to their Roundup herbicide.

    Johnson’s jury heard evidence that for four decades Monsanto purposefully concealed Roundup’s carcinogenicity by capturing regulatory agencies, corrupting public officials, bribing scientists and engaging in scientific fraud to delay its day of reckoning. The jury found that these activities constituted “malice, fraud and oppression” warranting $250 million in punitive damages.

              Общество: Нужны ли еще Земле космонавты      Comment   Translate Page      
    В прошедший накануне праздник космонавтам неожиданно пришлось оправдываться за собственное существование. К этому их вынудил сотрудник РАН, заявивший, что надобность в людях на орбите давно отпала, их прекрасно заменят роботы. Допустим, так. Но вот вопрос: когда придет время переселять население Земли на другую планету, как обойтись без опыта космонавтов?

    Эпоха освоения космоса с помощью пилотируемых полетов закончилась, все важные открытия сейчас осуществляются с помощью роботов, заявил в пятницу радио «Говорит Москва» ведущий научный сотрудник Института ядерных исследований РАН Вячеслав Докучаев.

    «МКС с точки зрения науки это пустая трата времени. Космонавты там занимаются в основном собственным жизнеобеспечением и изучают, кто у них там дырки просверливает.

    Тратятся миллиарды не рублей, а долларов, а научный выход – ноль. Давным-давно все открытия получаются с помощью роботов. Марсоход на Марсе, флуктуации реликтового излучения – все это получено роботами. Человек в космосе просто сейчас не нужен. Человеческая космонавтика нужна, но только на частные деньги. А государство свои деньги налогоплательщиков должно тратить на настоящую науку», – убежден ученый. 

    Примечательно, что это заявление он сделал прямо на День космонавтики. 

    Выпад Докучаева вызвал коллективную отповедь из уст сразу нескольких космонавтов.

    «США и Китай ведь тоже не просто так развивают программы пилотируемых кораблей. И если мы хотим отстать, если хотим не быть космический державой, тогда да, можно обойтись без пилотируемой космонавтики», – заявил газете ВЗГЛЯД космонавт, депутат Госдумы Максим Сураев.

    «Я не уверен в компетентности этого сотрудника. В каких-то отдельных вопросах беспилотные корабли и роботы решают некоторые задачи. Но в любом случае, чтобы применять все это для человечества, нам нужен и человек в космосе. Если бы все было так, как заявил Докучаев, мы бы лежали все на диванах и не ходили на работу. Но жизнь показывает, что не получается у нас все заменить машинами», – сказал Сураев.

    «Пилотируемая космонавтика была, есть и будет. Все самое необходимое в космосе делается руками человека, – подчеркнул Сураев. – Да, какие-то вещи можно доверить роботу, но и его должен контролировать человек с помощью своего мозга, осязания, обоняния, зрения».

    Исполнительный директор Роскосмоса по пилотируемым программам Сергей Крикалев лаконично заявил, что ученый РАН «не прав», а космонавт Андрей Борисенко в свою очередь заметил, что человека нельзя противопоставлять «автомату». «Этот спор напоминает, какая рука для человека важнее – левая или правая. Необходим именно комплексный подход в решении научных задач. Далеко не все могут делать автоматы», – заметил он.

    Начальник Центра подготовки космонавтов им. Ю.А. Гагарина (ЦПК) Павел Власов тоже встал на защиту своей профессии. «Люди без подпорки автоматов не смогут работать, а автоматы – без влияния людей, особенно в деятельности на других планетах. Без людей нам не обойтись», –цитирует Власова ТАСС.

    Кстати, споры о статусе космонавтов в нашей стране уже возникали. Как писала газета ВЗГЛЯД, еще в 2010 году Минобороны дважды отказалось наградить званием Героя России того же Максима Сураева. Современные полеты в космос российские генералы уже не считают достаточно опасными и засдуживающими награждения пилотов Золотой звездой. С просьбой о награждении Сураева Роскосмос обратился прямо к президенту, после чего Сураев все же получил звезду Героя.

    В отличие от космонавтов другие российские ученые не спешат с порога отметать тезис Докучаева.

    «Действительно, с большинством экспериментов по фундаментальной науке, связанных с наблюдением за космосом и планетами, магнитными бурями, проведением, например, экспериментов, связанных с проверкой теории относительности, лучше справляются автоматические спутники», – заявил газете ВЗГЛЯД российский физик, специалист в области космической плазмы, геофизики, член-корреспондент РАН Анатолий Петрукович.

    «Но если говорить о биологической науке, связанной с изучением материалов в рамках экспериментов, которые проводятся на станции в условиях невесомости, – здесь космонавты и экипаж корабля выполняют существенную роль», – отметил эксперт.

    «Кроме того, существует огромный пласт науки, связанной с освоением космоса. Мы должны изучить эту среду с точки зрения проживания в ней. Рано или поздно люди будут летать в космос, поэтому надо понимать, как человек себя чувствует в невесомости. Если нам нужно перелететь на другую планету, то как еще это можно сделать?», – поясняет ученый.

    «Не нужно считать, что это необходимость завтрашнего дня – переселиться в космос,

    – считает собеседник. – Но с точки зрения прогресса человечества, экспансии человека в космос, пилотируемые полеты нужны, поскольку это первый шаг».

    «Чтобы переплыть Атлантический океан, никто не ждал, когда появится лайнер. Люди переплывали его и на лодках, и на плотах. Постепенно пересечение океана становилось все более доступным. Вот и в освоении космоса мы также находимся на начальной стадии», – резюмировал Петрукович. 

    Надо признать – сомнения в необходимости пилотируемых полетов звучат и на Западе. Когда в прошлом году бурно обсуждались планы Илона Маска наладить полеты на Марс, 85-летний астронавт Билл Андерс назвал глупой идею пилотируемых экспедиций к этой планете. Он считает, что от беспилотных программ гораздо больше пользы, прежде всего, потому что они намного дешевле.

    Андерс прославился в далеком 1968 году, когда летал к Луне на корабле «Аполлон-8. «Сегодня НАСА не смогло бы высадиться на Луне. Они так закостенели... НАСА превратилось в программу трудоустройства... Многие центры в основном заинтересованы лишь в том, чтобы быть чем-то занятыми», – посетовал Андерс в интервью Би-би-си. Андерс также критически настроен вообще к стратегии НАСА. По его мнению, та создала космическую станцию на околоземной орбите только для того, чтобы оправдать существование шаттлов.

    «Космическая станция оказалась там только потому, что у нас был шаттл, и наоборот. НАСА на самом деле очень плохо вела пилотируемую программу с тех пор, как закончились лунные проекты», – уверен астронавт.

    Glasgow: Kriss Donald stabbed and burned alive by kuffarphobes

    UK: Three Pakistanis jailed for race attack on Kriss Donald (stabbed and burned alive)Posted by Jacques Martin on Mar 15th, 2008 // No Comment http://www.eutimes.net/2008/03/uk-three-pakistanis-jailed-for-race-attack-on-kriss-donald-stabbed-and-burned-alive/Three men have been jailed for life after they were found guilty of the racially-motivated murder of white Glasgow teenager Kriss Donald. Faisal Mushtaq, 27, Zeeshan Shahid, 28, and his brother Imran Shahid, 29, had denied murdering Kriss, 15, in 2004.Kriss’s mother Angela – quiet during the trial – shouted: “You bastards,” as the jury delivered its verdict.Imran Shahid must serve a minimum of 25 years, Zeeshan Shahid, 23 years minimum and Mushtaq, at least 22 years.Outside the court, Ms Donald, 42, thanked police, the prosecution and witnesses.She said: “Justice has been done, thank you – it is over.”The six week trial had heard that her son had shouted: “I’m only 15, what have I done?” as he was dragged from the street and into a car.The gang took him on a 200-mile journey to Dundee and back while they made phone calls looking for a house to take him to.READ THE SENTENCING STATEMENTHaving no success, they returned to Glasgow and took him to the quiet Clyde Walkway, near Celtic FC’s training ground.There, they held his arms and stabbed him 13 times before dousing him with petrol and setting him alight while he may still have been alive.The jury of nine women and six men took about eight-and-a-half hours to reach its verdict.Imran Shahid was found guilty by a unanimous verdict and the other two guilty by majority verdicts.Sentencing, Lord Uist described Imran Shahid as “a thug and bully with a sadistic nature not fit to be free in civilised society”.He said Imran Shahid, known as Baldy, was the leader of the expedition.“It was pre-meditated cold blooded execution, it truly was an abomination,” Lord Uist added.“The savage and barbaric nature of this crime has rightly shocked the public.“Racially aggravated violence from whatever quarter will not be tolerated in Scotland.”‘Horrendous crime’ Eyewitness accounts of the abduction, statements said to have been made by the accused, mobile phonerecords and forensic evidence against one of the men helped secure the convictions.Kriss was stabbed 13 times and burns covered 70% of his body.His death triggered an investigation that lasted more than two years and took detectives around Scotland and to Pakistan.Asst Ch Const John Malcolm, of Strathclyde Police said: “As a force we would like to extend our personal thanks to Kriss’s family for their co-operation, support and their understanding as the true nature of this horrendous crime unfolded.“It is also important to acknowledge the support of the broader community.“Everyone came together to support and inform our investigation, and through these actions, the community made it very clear that this sort of violence is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in any community.”Kriss was abducted near his home in a random act of racially motivated revenge by the gang on 15 March, 2004.The Shahid brothers and Mushtaq had fled to Pakistan after murdering him.It was more than a year before they agreed to return and stand trial, after warrants were issued for their arrest.‘Defenceless boy’During the trial, prosecutor Mark Stewart QC described the killing as “an appalling crime of inhumanity against a defenceless boy”.Over 27 days, the court heard how Kriss’s badly burnt and semi-naked body was found by a cyclist on the secluded Clyde Walkway the morning after he was snatched from the street.Expert witnesses said they believed the 15-year-old was still alive as his body burned.Another man, Daanish Zahid, 20, is serving a minimum of 17 years for murdering Kriss after he was found guilty at a previous trial.A fifth man, Zahid Mohammed, 22, served half of a five-year sentence after he admitted he had abducted Kriss.He gave evidence at the trial of the Shahid brothers and Mushtaq.Mr Stewart revealed that all three had criminal records – including serious violence in the case of Huddersfield-born father-of-two Imran Shahid.He was jailed for four-and-a-half years at the High Court in Glasgow in May 1995 for serious assault and was sentenced to 30 months in February 2003 for assault to danger of life and dangerous driving.Mushtaq’s record, mostly for road traffic offences, also includes assaults.Zeeshan Shahid has served an 18-month sentence for culpable and reckless conduct and reckless damage.See More

              Cuidado com as Ofensas e Ironias nas Redes Sociais      Comment   Translate Page

    Em tempo de Globalizaçãoe de acesso mais fácil à Internet, todo cuidado é pouco no que diz respeito à publicação de imagens e/ou vídeos, comentários indevidos e/ou comprometedores, injúrias, ofensas, entre outros aspectos interligados a esses, assim como o compartilhamento de tais postagens, o que amplia a sua divulgação e que, dependendo do seu teor, pode ocasionar maiores danos à pessoa retratada.
     
    Vira e mexe, as mídias reportam casos em que uma pessoa foi vítima de preconceito e/ou constrangimento em publicações, sobretudo, nas redes sociais, onde o seu nome e/ou imagem se encontra associado a situações adversas,pelas quais a mesma se sente prejudicada, ofendida.
     
    Há alguns anos houve um caso de uma professora de Ensino Superior que tirou foto de um homem no Aeroporto Santos Dumont, no Rio de Janeiro, postou no Facebook e fez comentários a respeito de seus trajes simples, “inadequados” para aquele tipo de espaço e de seus usuários. Ela questionou – diante da imagem deste - se estava na “rodoviária ou no aeroporto”.
     
    Sob o mesmo tom de ironia e de preconceito, a postagem da professora foi compartilhada por muitas pessoas, ao ponto do indivíduo (a vítima) descobrir que sua imagem estava circulando nas redes sociais.

    Pois bem, o que ela não deveria esperar é que aquele homem, sentado de bermuda e camiseta no aeroporto, que ela ironizou em sua postagem (comentário) e sem a devida autorização de uso de imagem dele, era um advogado mineiro.
     
    Até aonde eu soube, após tomar conhecimento dos fatos, ele tomou as providências cabíveis quanto à publicação, não só à professora como, também, às pessoas que compartilharam e comentaram.
     
    Estou chamando a atenção acerca de publicações indevidas nas mídias sociais, exatamente, para alertar sobre os riscos de postar comentários ofensivos contra uma ou mais pessoas.
     
    Dois casos merecem destaque aqui, ambos aconteceram recentemente...
     
    O primeiro caso, ocorrido no Rio de Janeiro, diz respeito ao compartilhamento de um vídeo, produzido por duas jovens, que ironizaram um funcionário negro da rede de lanchonetes Bob’s, localizado no bairro de Bonsucesso, no momento em que este trabalhava, varrendo o chão do estabelecimento comercial.
     
    Ambas, aos risos, pronunciaram frases preconceituosas, discriminatórias a este:
     
    isso mesmo, limpa pra eu ver”, “lambe o chão”...
     
     
    Imagem capturada na Internet
    Fonte: R7 Notícias
     
    A repercussão do vídeo foi grande e viralizou. No entanto, a reação dos internautas foi desfavorável às jovens, tendo em vista que a maioria se revoltou com a atitude das mesmas, exigindo punições às autoras do vídeo.
     
    Estas chegaram a justificar seus atos na referida rede social, mas não convenceram. E, depois, o que é postado e visualizado na Internet, dificilmente, se esquece.

    O funcionário da lanchonete e vítima das humilhações prestou queixa na 54ª DP, em Belford Roxo, na Baixada Fluminense.
     
    Boatos acerca deste, também, correram nas mídias, como a sua demissãopela própria rede Bob’s , fato que foi desmentido, posteriormente, pela empresa, assim como que a UNISUAM, Universidade localizada no mesmo bairro, teria dado uma bolsa de estudo de 100% para que o mesmo cursasse uma faculdade.
     
    O site Boatos.org desmente essa notícia, alegando que não há nada oficial que comprove a veracidade da mesma.

    O segundo caso ocorreu em outro país e sua repercussão foi muito além de uma simples queixa, chegando à esfera de crime cibernético, contrariando o que é permitido na legislação de um determinado país do Oriente Médio.  

    De acordo com Portal do G1, publicado no início deste mês, uma mulher britânica corre o risco de ser condenada a até dois anos de prisão e de pagar multa, em razão de ter feito dois comentários ofensivos em uma publicação de seu ex-marido, com fotos de seu novo casamento, no Facebook, no ano de 2016.

    A família morou nos Emirados Árabes Unidos por oito meses, mas ao se divorciarem, após 18 anos de casamento, ela e sua filha voltaram para o Reino Unido, enquanto o ex-marido permaneceu no país, vindo a se casar posteriormente.

    No dia 10 de março deste ano, ela - Laleh Shahravesh (55 anos) - foi para os Emirados Árabes, com a sua filha de 14 anos, justamente, para participar do funeral dele, que havia falecido após um ataque cardíaco.

    No entanto, na hora de voltar para o Reino Unido, só sua filha embarcou, pois ela ficou detida no aeroporto de Dubai devido a existência de um processo na Justiça, que havia sido aberto pela esposa de seu ex-marido.

    Apesar de ter sido liberada, após o pagamento de fiança, o seu passaporte foi confiscado e ela passou a residir em um hotel, no qual aguardava o desfecho dos trâmites processuais.

    Em 2016, ao ver as fotos do casamento do seu ex-marido no Facebook, Laleh postou os seguintes comentários:

    Espero que você morra, seu idiota. Maldito seja.
    Você me trocou por este cavalo".

    Chegaram a solicitar, a seu favor, a retirada da acusação à autora da denúncia, mas a nova esposa do seu ex-marido (já falecido), não concordou, fazendo cumprir a política de austeridade dos crimes cibernéticos do país, cujas leis preveem, no caso de declarações difamatórias nas redes sociais, a prisão e o estabelecimento de multa.

    Posteriormente, Laleh Shahravesh foi liberada, seu passaporte foi devolvido e ela pagou uma multa simbólica. Só assim, ela pode retornar ao Reino Unido.
     
    Por isso, todo cuidado é pouco na hora de comentar ou postar fotos e/ou vídeos nas mídias sociais!

    The Tinsley Viaduct is interesting enough in itself, a double decker road bridge, built 1965-68,  carrying the M1 (above) and the A 631 (below) across the canal, the river, the railway and the tramline.

    When I worked in Huddersfield, before I had ever visited Sheffield, on the very rare occsaions I travelled by car I would look down from here at the city nestled in its basin of river valleys, and it was characterised by the glint of Meadowhall and the brutal, beautiful mass of what I now know to have been the Tinsley Cooling Towers:
    Photo: Tim Herrick (used under Creative Commons licence)
    These were built in the same year as Chertsey (well, 1937-8), providing additional capacity for the 1921 Blackburn Meadows coal fired power station, and as such were very early examples of the hyperbolic design that is now the familiar - even iconic - symbol of a power station.

    Blackburn Meadows was closed in 1980, and most of the site cleared. The towers, however, couldn't be demolished without risk to the viaduct, so they stayed for nearly another thirty years. Shorn of their function, they became a landmark - towering, in a more literal way than many of their counterparts, over their surroundings.
    Photo: Sheffield Star
    But following the strengthening of the viaduct  in 2006, the towers' owners, E.ON, decided to demolish them, and the decision was carried out - in the face of much local opposition - in the early hours of August 24th 2008.

    One person described them to me as 'Sheffield's Angel of the North'.  A Yorkshireman of my acquaintance, who, if not exactly taciturn, is certainly not given to displays of emotion, told us after a couple of pints how upset he was when they were demolished, saying that seeing them from the motorway was 'how you knew you were home.'

    I must confess that it was a long time after arriving in Sheffield that I noticed that those massive symbols of the city were no longer there. It's like I said the other day - you turn your back for a moment...

    Muslim Migrant Charged with Threatening Anti-Mass Migration MP

    A Muslim migrant from the Balkans has been charged with uttering threats after an exchange with anti-mass migration MP Hanif Bali, whom he allegedly called a “dirty Arab”.

    The 34-year-old accused Bali, who is originally from Iran and serves as an MP for the Moderate Party, of insulting Islam following an appearance on Swedish broadcaster SVT in February. He allegedly insulted and threatened Bali 30 times, Nyheter Idag reports.

    According to Bali, who is well-known for speaking out against mass migration, the Muslim man called him a number of names and said, “I’m going to fuck you, you Arabic bastard, your mother and your sister, you’ve insulted Islam, if you were here I would break you.”

    After being arrested, the man told police that he was not reacting to Bali’s SVT appearance but to a YouTube video and that he did not even know who Bali was, saying he did not know he was a politician and thought he was just an “idiot”.
    A police memo that was brought before the court hearing at Gothenburg district court also revealed that the 34-year-old was uncooperative with police, saying he did not “intend to come to any fucking questioning.”
    “The suspect then said he would fuck [the policeman] and his family. When I pointed out that it was not appropriate to threaten someone during a conversation with the Security Police, the suspect replied that he had not threatened anyone at all,” the memo added.
    The man has reportedly been convicted of crimes in the past including money laundering.

    his comments were taken out of context of course

    he blasted the rise of China, saying: “They’re creating robots out of their own people. Each Chinese person is a kind of replica of the next one and that is a very frightening thing.”

    uh, he was talking about Chinese increased pressure on people to conform, which is getting worse, not better, in recent years.


    and then there is this: Criticizing Soros is anti Semitic.

    He also repeated an anti-Semitic trope by accusing Jewish billionaire George Soros of running a “Soros empire” in Hungary.

    Uh,  Soros broke the Bank of England awhile back and almost bankrupted some countries in Asia, not to mention he worked for the Nazis as a kid, so why is criticizing him considered "anti Semitic"?

    but his main sin was denying "Islamophobia" is a problem. 

    well, Islamophobia is a problem (England is full of prejudice, not just against Islam and "Asians" but against those from the lower classes, and against Christians, Africans, the Irish, and the Jews) but too often this word is used to silence anyone trying to criticize the aggressive radicals who recruit terrorists or criminals who terrorize the innocent, especially women, in their own communities. 

    It was fear of being called "Islamophobic" stops police from enforcing laws against abuse of women if the perpetrator is of a protected class, the worst case being the Rotherham gang LINK LINK2

    so who is being protected, and from what?

    Last time I looked, the good Muslims (and Hindus, and Pinoys, and Polish, and Irish and West Indians) tend to love beauty in the environment rather than the ugly but politically correct death towers they are forced to live in by mindless mindless city planners.

    Yet one suspects that Scuton's main "sin" is defending Western Civilization. Or maybe I should say "All traditional Civilizations", since his insistence on beauty being important is not just limited to pre modern Europe but is part of Asian, South Asian, and other great cultures.

    the ultimate result of removing a voice that insists that beauty is important in housing will not make things better, because this will mean the proponents of "modern" design will have a monopoly in civil planning...

    http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




    The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




    A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
    B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
    C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
    D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
    E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
    F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

    http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




    The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




    A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
    B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
    C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
    D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
    E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
    F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Gavin Newsom. The sharp rate rise would be worse for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. customers, whose bills could double in just one year, said Steven Weissman, an emeritus lecturer at UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy, in a Wednesday memo to a Newsom administration official."

              What's the problem with Ukrainians?      Comment   Translate Page      
    It's said that people get the Government they deserve. This could be true of Ukrainians, who have elected one corrupt incompetent gang of rogues after another into the highest offices of the land. Or as a local sitcom asked 'why are all the honest people fools and all the clever ones crooks?', going on to ponder 'what kind of people are we that we keep voting mother-fucking liars knowing full well that they're all crooks?. Well they might ask because by any reasonable standard Ukraine is now a failed state. I've been there several times and you just see and sense it. Poor, everything badly organised, listless and apathetic people, all-pervasive corruption.

    It's the only country of the former Soviet Communist block that has actually regressed economically since the USSR's collapse in 1991. Yet at that time it seemed poised to be a success story. In fact its people saw themselves as analogous to the Catalans, believing they were contributing more to the centralised USSR Government than they were getting back and independence would mean improved living standards. After all they had some of the world's the richest soil (black gold), iron, coal, its own motor, truck and aircraft manufacturing industries. So what went wrong?


    “Ukraine, which parted from Russia in 1991, has never achieved a true independent state. Just like in Russia, or even 80 years earlier in the Weimar Republic, a tribe of vultures descended upon the body of the nation.” The Russian playbook again. Backed by 'international financiers' Jewish oligarchs seized ownership of the state's richest assets. And they did so at a tiny fraction of their real value. The oligarchs then played a largely predatory role, dismantling much of the production for scrap metal, and shipping their profits offshore as opposed to re-investing. 

    And of course they own the media as well. Professor Vasyl Yaremenko, director of the Institute of Culturological and Ethnopolitical research at Kiev State University, released an article in 2003 entitled Jews In Ukraine Today: Reality Without Myths which stated "Ukrainians need to know that the mass media is completely in the hands of Jews, and everything that we watch or read is the product of Jewish ideology…". Their control has become even stronger since then. And of course Ukraine's gold, like that of every country 'liberated' by the West, has duly disappeared.

    So how have the 99.3% of Ukrainians who are not Jews responded to this? Well by voting Jews into power time and again. Sometimes you'd wonder where they get them all. Professor Yaremenko points out that of the 400+ members of the Ukrainian Parliament, 136 (possibly 158) are Jews. In the few short years since 'independence' there have been Ministers, Prime Ministers and even a President from this minuscule minority. And now they're set to elect another one as their latest President.

    Why in God's name would Ukrainians do this? It's not as if their relationship with Jews has been untroubled. Quite the contrary. Less than a century ago up to six million (!!) of them were driven to starvation by the campaign of (((Lazar Kaganovich))) to destroy the kulaks. Ukrainians know this. They also know that the largely Jewish Soviet secret police murdered unimaginable numbers of  their intellectuals, clergymen, academics and successful businessmen. Kill The Best Of The Gentiles ?

    So could it be that today's Ukrainians, deprived of the genetic endowment of the intellectual elites exterminated in the thirties, have become dysgenically mutilated unthinking serfs, hewers of wood and drawers of water, easily manipulated by their (((overlords)))?  After all, 'why are all the honest people fools and all the clever ones crooks?' in that country?

              'If your coffee needs doctoring, it must be broken.'      Comment   Translate Page      
    Part of its so-called charm is its enforcement of strict coffee culture rules. Often called Third Wave coffee shops, these aficionados use high-quality roasted beans that they feel should be consumed unadulterated by additional flavours (even ones their customers might wish to add). Many of these zero-tolerance coffee shops feel that they are simply re-educating consumers by implementing these rules, but the issue is polarising.

    These are "a new breed of high-end coffee shops that have adopted zero tolerance policies on sugar, milk and cream to preserve what they feel is coffee quality. Others simply opt out of selling smaller espresso-based drinks 'to go' because they feel the taste suffers if not enjoyed right away."

              Spanier hilft seiner schwer kranken Frau bei Suizid und landet vor "Gendergericht" – News vom 14. April 2019      Comment   Translate Page      
    1. Der Spanier Ángel Hernández half seiner schwer kranken Frau beim Suizid. Die Justiz seines Landes verfolgt ihn jetzt wegen "Gendergewalt". Damit bezeichnet der spanische Staat sämtliche Gewalttaten, die Männer an ihren Partnerinnen verüben. Der Fall ist jetzt vor einem Gericht speziell für diese "Gendergewalt" gelandet:

    Hernández war fassungslos. Er fühle sich als "gewalttätiger Machist" behandelt, sagte er in einem Fernsehinterview am Donnerstagabend. Fassungslos war auch die Staatsanwältin Pilar Martín Nájera, zuständig für Fälle von Männergewalt gegen Frauen. "Um als ein Fall von Gendergewalt verfolgt zu werden, muss es einen Kontext von Diskriminierung und Beherrschung durch den Mann geben", sagte sie.

    Wahrscheinlich irrt sich die Staatsanwältin. Anfang dieses Jahres war ein Grundsatzurteil des spanischen Obersten Gerichtshofes bekannt geworden, das feststellte: "Wenn es eine Aggression des Mannes gegen die Frau gibt, ist das Gendergewalt." Ein "Dominanzverhalten des Mannes nachzuweisen" sei nicht nötig. So habe es der Gesetzgeber mit seinem Gesetz über Gendergewalt aus dem Jahr 2004 gewollt.




    2. Eine Britin, die öfters mal betrunken Auto fährt und dabei andere Autos rammt, bleibt vom Gefängnis verschont, weil sie eine Frau ist.



    3. Noch mal zurück nach Spanien: Dort zieht eine Schule "Rotkäppchen" aus dem Verkehr, weil es sich um sexistische Literatur handele. Darüber berichtet das US-Magazin Newsweek:

    Eine Schule in Katalonien hat aus ihrer Bibliothek 200 klassische Kinderbücher wie "Dornröschen" und "Rotkäppchen" wegen der Darstellung sexistischer Stereotypen zurückgezogen.

    Nach der Analyse der Inhalte der Bibliothek für Kinder bis zum Alter von sechs Jahren stellte die Leitung der Taber School in Barcelona fest, dass rund ein Drittel der Geschichten "toxisch" seien und nur ein Zehntel der Bücher aus geschlechtsspezifischer Sicht geschrieben wurde.

    Anna Tutzó, die in der Kommission war, die sich die Bücher anschaute (befand), dass solche Geschichten mit Klischees spielten, die Männlichkeit mit Mut verbinden, und sie wollte, dass Kinder kritisch über die Geschichten nachdenken, die ihnen erzählt werden.

    "Auch in gewalttätigen Situationen, auch wenn es nur kleine Streiche sind, ist es der Junge, der gegen das Mädchen vorgeht. Dies sendet eine Botschaft darüber, wer gewalttätig sein kann und gegen wen", fügte sie hinzu.

    Andere Schulen in Barcelona wollen dem Beispiel folgen.




    4. Zwei Tüftler haben ein Sexspielzeug erfunden, mit dem Männer endlich onanieren können, ohne sich schuldig zu fühlen: die "Ussy".



    5. Der Deutschlandfunk sendet ein fast einstündiges Feature über den Alltag eines alleinerziehenden Vaters mit drei Kindern.



    6. Der Südkurier fragt: Die Mehrheit der Deutschen lehnt eine gendergerechte Sprache ab. Warum kommt sie dennoch? Der Artikel von Uli Fricker ist in Gänze lesenswert.



    7. Das liberale Magazin Sp!ked beschäftigt sich mit der Neudefinition, die der Europarat nach MeToo für Sexismus vorgenommen hat, und kommentiert:

    Das ist eine problematische Entwicklung. Die Bedrohung durch Sexismus und seine Auswirkungen wird immer mehr hochgespielt. Schlimmer noch, der Europarat schlägt eine Art Strafe für diejenigen vor, die sich nicht an die vom Eurparat bevorzugte Art halten, über Frauen zu sprechen oder sich mit ihnen zu beschäftigen. Er fordert, "rechtliche und politische Rahmenbedingungen, Maßnahmen und bewährte Praktiken zu institutionalisieren, die sich mit Sexismus, sexistischem Verhalten, Geschlechterstereotypisierung und sexistischem Hassreden befassen, insbesondere im öffentlichen Raum, im Internet und in den Medien, am Arbeitsplatz, im öffentlichen Sektor, in der Justiz, im Bildungs-, Sport- und Kulturbereich sowie im privaten Bereich, einschließlich der Instrumente zur Meldung sexistischen Verhaltens sowie in Disziplinarverfahren und Sanktionen".

    Eines der Hauptprobleme des Feminismus im Jahr 2019 ist das Verändern der Spielregeln beim Thema Sexismus. Sehr viel Verhalten und Sprechen wird jetzt unter dem Label "Sexismus" zusammengefasst. So wurden beispielsweise im vergangenen Monat deutsche Anzeigen für Fahrradhelme von Politikern als sexistisch verurteilt, weil sie einen Blick auf nackte Frauenkörper gestatteten. Dies geschah trotz der Tatsache, dass in den gleichen Anzeigen Männer in einem noch stärkeren Zustand der Nacktheit gezeigt wurden.

    (...) Wenn immer mehr öffentliche Bilder, Redeformen und private Kommentare als "sexistisch" definiert werden und wenn der Europarat Sanktionen gegen diejenigen vorschlägt, die solche Dinge tun oder sagen, wird die Möglichkeit einer neuen Art von Autoritarismus sehr real.

    Ein Thema, das sich durch die Empfehlungen des Rates und durch den heutigen Feminismus im weiteren Sinne zieht, ist die Auffassung, dass Frauen ständig bedroht sind. Es erscheint paradox, dass Beamte bei den Bemühungen, zumindest scheinbar die Gleichstellung der Geschlechter herbeizuführen, argumentieren, dass ein Geschlecht, das weibliche, die Welt in seinem Namen reinigen lassen muss, nur für den Fall, dass seine Mitglieder jemals auf eine fragwürdige Idee oder Aussage stoßen. Die eifrige Suche nach Sexismus überall sieht aus wie ein Versuch, den Feminismus relevant zu halten. Und es ist ein Beweis für den heutzutage unersättlichen Wunsch, Opfer und Schurken hervorzubringen.




    8. Die Post. Einer meiner Leser schreibt mir heute:

    Katie Bouman wurde in den vergangenen Tagen in den Medien als die Wissenschaftlerin gefeiert, die das "Foto", bzw. die Rekonstruktion des Schwarzen Loches möglich gemacht hat.

    Langsam kam dann aber heraus, dass Katie nur ein Teil eines Teams von 200 Leuten ist, die alle einen mehr oder weniger wichtigen Beitrag zu dem Bild geleistet haben, und und sich vor allem durch zwei Dinge auszeichnet: Sie ist eine Frau und es gibt niedliche Fotos von ihr.

    Es ist schwer zu sagen, ob sie es war, die sich in den Vordergrund geschoben hat, oder ob es die Medien waren, die sich gierig auf sie als weibliche Symbolfigur gestürzt haben. Ich vermute eher letzteres. Das ändert aber nicht daran, daß die Leute ihren Ärger über die Darstellung in den Medien nun nicht bei den Medien, sondern bei Katie abladen. Und den Medien erlaubt das nun wieder, über Katie als Opfer und die frauenfeindliche Wissenschaft zu schreiben.

              Science updates!      Comment   Translate Page      

    It's hard to evade politics, even in a weekend science update. for example when a top Republican factotum declares: “Science is a Democrat thing.” 

    Um. They say it proudly! Yes, science, but also every single fact-based profession. Including medicine, law, teaching, journalism and those "deep state" enemies -- the Intel/FBI/military officer corps -- who know that fact and science and climate change are real.


    == Long ago at least they had an excuse for ignorance... ==

    As we re-examine our distant past...

    We’re finding numerous past eras when the male population in a region was winnowed to a narrow gene pool or else replaced by newcomers. One massive swing happened about 12,000 years ago, about the same time that two technologies might have exacerbated male death rates: agricultural kingdoms and the availability of plentiful beer. (This is actually my own theory, based upon traveller reports from Polynesia and other places that told of kings ordering the instant death of offending louts. It would help explain human resistance to addiction, which though terribly imperfect is greater than in most species.)

    Now comes evidence that a mass migration of males transformed the genetic make-up of people in Spain during the Bronze Age. It remains unclear whether there was a violent invasion or whether a male-centric social structure played an important role.” Interesting article!  And yet, in my “contrarian gadfly” role, I must point out that while dominance by top king-chief-patriarchs seems the most likely explanation, there IS another way that a Y chromosome winnowing could have occurred. 

    Female dominance. There have been a few cases of matriarchy in which women councils exerted strong control over which males were allowed to breed. It is quite conceivable (get it?) for such councils to enforce hypergamy – preference to share those males who meet strict standards, rather than “settle” for average. 

    A mild version of this practice was seen among the Cherokee and Iroquois, for example.  Yes, our sad litany of nasty and oppressive patriarchies was far more common. But it’s wrong simply to assume that Y chromosome winnowing happened because of inter-male strife. It might have been female selection, which is actually the great driver of evolution in many non-human species.

    == More evidence from the past ==

    And the Denisovan story gets even more complicated and strange: our Denisovan cousins may have mated with modern humans as recently as 15,000 years ago.

    A fossil discovery in North Dakota is strongly believed to be a fish that was blasted and killed precisely the very day that the Cretaceous ended with the Chicxulub meteorite impact, 66 million years ago, the most incredible (and precise) paleontological discovery of the century, so far. If this story is even 5% true...wow. Just wow.

    Meanwhile a new fossil trove in China - the Qingjiang biota - has yielded thousands of Cambrian period specimens, with dozens of new species, yet to be named.

    Gabonionta are the earliest multicellular macroscopic organisms discovered so far, vastly older –by almost 4x ! – than previous evidence for complex life. Known only from their fossilized mucous trails in black shale from Gabon. Likely something like colonial amoebae or slime molds, they seem to have appeared almost right after Earth finally got appreciable oxygen in its atmosphere. Good science reporting.

    My old Caltech housemate Joe Kirschvink has done it again, proving (with colleagues) that humans have a small but verified sensitivity to magnetic fields. 

    == Tech updates ==

    Via Peter Diamandis: Researchers at Boston University have mathematically designed a 3D acoustic metamaterial that can block up to 94 percent of noise flowing through it. Most dramatically, however, the 3D-printed structure reflects noise-producing vibrations without impeding the passage of light or airflow itself.

    GauGAN, from NVIDIA, may be the “MS Paint for the AI age.” Using a generative adversarial network (GAN) trained on 1 million Flickr images, GauGAN can create photorealistic images from just a few lines drawn by a user. As an example, a user could click on “tree,” draw a line, and GauGAN will create an image of a tree trunk.

    And “Google has successfully shrunk its speech algorithm storage demands down to 80MB, rendering its speech recognizer small enough to fit on your smartphone, and work offline.”

    A world game-changer would be to wean billions off cattle or other inefficient and eco-damaging meats, either with vegetable substitutes like the (yummy) Beyond Burger or else real-meat by tissue culture. Latest: “Memphis Meats, for example, recently filed a patent describing a method to create real chicken and beef tissue using CRISPR.”

    Goodyear unveiled its new concept Aero tire, designed to run on roads and double as a propulsion system for flying vehicles.  Yes, the tires become rotors capable of downward thrust and lift. Yipe. Amazing tech.

    Optical interferometry has long promised to help us parse distant planets from their hugely brighter nearby stars. Now a group claims to have done it. But then, a few weeks later, we got that image of a real black hole(!) via a method very similar.

     == short takes ==

    Methane is so good at trapping heat that one ton of the gas causes 32 times as much warming as one ton of CO2. And Methane is spiking. The possible sources are worrisome. The GOP blocked Obama efforts to fund more inspectors to prevent venting from oil fields. But Trump savagely cut them further and progress toward an international treaty have foundered. 

    Even worse are signs that methane is bubbling forth from permafrost and undersea hydrate ices, threatening the “blurp” cascade that would truly make it all deadly, making Earth an almost literal hell. These people are outright enemies of your children.

    Slime molds’ ability to reconfigure their volume while fleeing from spots of light has enabled scientists to use these biological computers to solve complex mathematical  conundrums like the Traveling Salesman Problem.

    Our opportunity to save ourselves includes ideas like the “Circular Economy.” Watch the video. Then re-read Earth?

    An article on Vox discusses the latest silly-wrongheaded attempt by zealots to shout “messages” into the cosmos without ever doing risk analysis or talking it over with the rest of humanity, or allowing their assumptions to be examined. The saddest part is their dislike of science fiction, since SF explores a wide horizon of possibilities, and their religious fanaticism allows for only one.

    Wallace’s bee, the size of your thumb and thought extinct, rediscovered!

    Evidence that the huge Deccan Traps volcanic eruptions started just before the Yucatan asteroid impact, and hence may have severely weakened the dinosaurs and other species… but then got even worse after the impact, possibly tightening the noose. “The researchers' dates are also consistent with a major shift in the properties of the erupted rock occurring at the same time as the impact. This supports the idea that the impact's seismic effects reached across the entire planet.”

    Wired ran a story on Valentine’s Day about OpenAI, the nonprofit institute founded by Elon Musk and Y Combinator founder Sam Altman, which has apparently designed a system that can learn natural language patterns better than any previous attempt so far after feeding it eight million web pages to train it. What is newsworthy to me about this is what they did next: they stopped to consider the implications.  “It could be that someone who has malicious intent would be able to generate high-quality fake news,” an OAI vice president told Wired.

    We are a glorious, scientific civilization. Pictures of black holes! SpaceX triple landings! New disease cures! Meat substitutes! And if the enemies of all this want to make this partisan, then let's go.

    About the Book

    The Governess of Penwythe Hall

    Book: The Governess of Penwythe Hall
    Author: Sarah Ladd
    Genre: Historical Romance
    Release Date: April 16, 2019
    In the first of a new series from beloved Regency romance author, Sarah Ladd, Delia, a governess to five recently orphaned children, would risk anything to protect them . . . even her heart.
    Cornwall was in her blood, and Delia feared she’d never escape its hold.
    Cornwall, England, 1811
    Blamed for her husband’s death, Cordelia Greythorne fled Cornwall and accepted a governess position to begin a new life. Years later her employer’s unexpected death and his last request to watch over his five children force her to reevaluate. She can’t abandon the children now that they’ve lost both parents, but their new guardian lives at the timeworn Penwythe Hall . . . back on the Cornish coast she tries desperately to forget.
    Jac Trethewey is determined to revive Penwythe Hall’s once-flourishing apple orchards, and he’ll stop at nothing to see his struggling estate profitable again. He hasn’t heard from his brother in years, so when his nieces, nephews, and their governess arrive unannounced at Penwythe Hall, he battles both grief of this brother’s death and bewilderment over this sudden responsibility. Jac’s priorities shift as the children take up residence in the ancient halls, but their secretive governess—and the mystery shrouding her past—proves to be a disruption to his carefully laid plans.
    Rich with family secrets, lingering danger, and the captivating allure of new love, this first book in the Cornwall Novels series introduces us to the Twethewey family and their search for peace, justice, and love on the Cornish coast.
