Seriously though, printing money just really speeds up decay and overabundance of $. Too much of a currency means decline of value. Honestly it's the way of anything. If suddenly a flood of diamonds were found, diamonds would lose value.
Title: Re: World News

Well actually, there are a lot of diamonds. They're just like, held back I guess? They don't sell many so that the price can stay high or something like that. But that's also in addition to it being hard to cut and stuff. At least that's what I've heard.

Title: Re: World News
Post by: yasl on 2016-04-17 07:36:11
Not to mention that it's pretty straight-forward to make artificial diamonds.  All industrial diamonds are made this way, and my understanding is that jewellery-grade diamonds are equally manufacturable, but that De Beers and the diamond industry at large have expended great effort to keep artificial diamonds out of commercial jewellery.

What do you guys think of this?  Our $10 and $20 dollars bills are about to change dramatically.

SOURCE (http://www.wsj.com/articles/harriet-tubman-to-be-added-to-20-bill-1461170454?mod=trending_now_)

"Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew will announce plans Wednesday to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, following an extended campaign to solicit public input on his initial proposal to put a woman on the front of the $10 bill, according to a Treasury official.

The subplot over what would happen to Alexander Hamilton, who will remain on the $10 bill, often overshadowed the Treasury Department’s campaign to celebrate the contributions of female historical figures.

It isn’t clear when the new $20 note will be introduced into circulation. Currency officials began moving ahead with a redesign of the $10 note in 2013, and that bill won’t be introduced until 2020.

A woman hasn’t appeared on the nation’s paper money in more than a century. Tubman, an escaped slave, became a famous abolitionist and ferried other slaves to freedom through the Underground Railroad. She served as a Union spy during the Civil War."

Thoughts?  Do you think it is good to have bills celebrate occasions, movements, and groups, or is it better to have President's and other founding fathers on them? 
Title: Re: World News
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-04-20 13:19:29
Oh my god, if they change the $20 bill I'd be so happy! I honestly don't understand why Andrew Jackson was on the bill for, from what I learned in history class he really fudged up the banking system with his "pet banks". I remember hearing about this in economics class, at the times they were thinking about putting that big woman's rights activist, something Anthony? But I think it's pretty cool if Harriet Tubman was put on a bill, she did do a lot for so many escaping slaves. She was a brave woman.

As for the $10 bill... Eh? Do average people even know what Alexander Hamilton did for the country? I mean, they barely talk about him in any of the history classes I've been in. At least with Adrew Jackass they talk about him. So on the topic of whether the $10 should be changed, I'm neutral.

I'm surprised they mention in over a century a woman hasn't been on US currency. Does this mean there has at one point been a female on US currency? I don't recall this, but it is cool if that is true.
Title: Re: World News

Title: Re: World News

Bush isn't on any money, lol.  Neither Bush is, no modern presidents are. ;)

I feel George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, who were so important for our country, kind of got shafted being on such small denominations.  I guess that way you see them the most.

I am fine with keeping the bills with who is already on them, but if they have to change, I don't know how showing a "women's movement" on money will work.  I also don't think that should be on money, nor should any movement.  I think it should be a person on the money, usually of Presidential caliber, or very big importance.

I am not demeaning Harriett Tubman and the good she did, along with others, but I don't think they should be on money.  Maybe have the first female senator or or congressman, or maybe the first female of political importance. 
Title: Re: World News
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-04-21 05:24:50
I meant George Washington. Oh my gosh, how embarrassing. I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote that. Wow, that is wow. That's my dumb blonde moment OTL

But hm, that's actually a really good point, Raine. I guess they want to put someone who everybody would know of. Not everybody knows off hand who the first woman senator or congress woman is.
Title: Re: World News
Post by: Grapefoot on 2016-04-21 06:32:21
Harriet Tubman was an important figure in American history. 

The article is wrong when it said a female hasn't been printed on American tender in over a century.  Remember the dollar coins?  It had Shoshone woman, Sacajawea on it.  She helped the Lewis and Clark Expedition with her husband on their journey to the Pacific Ocean. 

I think two other awesome women candidates to American money should be Clara Barton and Susan B. Anthony.  Also you could consider, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, and possibly Lady Deborah Moody.

Many would also say, Betsey Ross, who is credited with sowing the first American flag, but the history on that is a bit unknown, too much so, to give her credit.  Margaret Manny is credited with actually creating the flag.

36 years ago today, the biggest volcanic eruption on American soil in recent memory occurred.

Mt. Saint Helens in Washington State erupted, killing just over 50 people.  The ash clouds circled the globe and left portions of the region blanketed in ash.  New reports show an increase in earthquakes around Mt. Saint Helens, and scientists monitoring the volcano (with some of the most high tech gear in the world, seriously, this volcano is hooked up with gear), they say the volcano is building up magma again, though they doubt it will erupt anytime soon.  More concerns are being shown as other nearby volcanos, Rainier, also in Washington, and Mt. Hood, in Oregon, have also seen increased earthquake swarms.  Could there be a major Pacific Northwest event brewing?

I figured it was a pretty big deal, so I would post something on it.  Especially since earthquakes are all the rage in conversation right now on the West Coast.  Earthquakes and volcanos kind of go hand in hand.

We also have the collapse of Venezuela right now, another buzzing by the Russian military of an America ship and possibly Putin wanting to make more moves in the Balkins.  We also have increased military aggression against the U.S. by China too.  So lots of bad things going on.

So Russia's trying to bust a move and reclaim its old friends the Baltic's? Wait, *rereads that* the Balkins? Not sure whether to think you mean the Baltic States or the Balkan States. Or is there actually something called the Balkins... *goes to look it up* I get a fixed search for Balkans. But huh, I didn't know Putin would be interested in those countries.

But yeah, seems a lot of aggression against America. Hm, because they think we're weak... My friend tells me Russia and Germany like Trump and his... Trump-ness. I wonder how other countries will freak if Trump actually succeeds.

It does appear we are in some difficult times, but then again, in recent times, when haven't we been?

I don't like the continued aggression by countries against the US.  I feel it is because they think we have weak leadership.

Russia and China's stunts are much better understood as domestic plays, showmanship for the benefit of their own polities.  Both are trying to convince their population (or maintain their conviction) that they are beset by enemies and require the continued "strong leadership" of their current leaders.  Which is of course a crock.

The ebb and flow of geopolitical power has more to do with institutions than "strong" or "weak" figurehead leaders.

@LP:
Putin's interested in using the memory of a powerful USSR to help maintain his position as de facto dictator.  All those wretched countries that split from Russia when the USSR unraveled are fair game in his eyes, at least as targets for rhetoric and bluster.

In the face of a refugee crisis, Germany, along with many other European countries, is politically shifting towards the poisoned chalice of nationalism, and is even developing a charming little faction of fascists.  Apparently 70 years is long enough to forget anything.

Were the Balkans part of the USSR? I thought it was the Baltics, Ukraine, Belarus, and a few other smaller countries, like Moldova. Hence my confusion. It'd make sense if Putin were targeting the Baltics, since they were part of the USSR. Putin, what a magnificent bastard. He knows how to push other countries leaders buttons. I recall my friends AP history classes and my Economics classes had quite a few discussions about him.

Mm, frightening thoughts really...

Yes, some Balkan states were part of the Iron Curtain, USSR control.  Wiki read!! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Balkans#Cold_War)

We also now just got word of an Egyptian airplane with 66 people on board went down.  Greek, Egyptian, and US authorities are searching for the wreckage and it seems that foul play was involved. 

quite honestly, I think Europe is going to explode again.  We got the EU struggling with countries like Spain, Portugal, and Greece, then of course we got NATO not wanting to be too forceful on Russia incase of all out war breaking loose.  We also have Russia's aggression, their support with other unsavory nations, and we have Germany growing more and more radical in terms of racism and fascism.  Yes, the re-rise of the German Nazi party.  Did I even mention the continued flow of emigrants into the EU.  Nations once accepting these people with open arms are quickly retreating on that message as places like France, the Netherlands, Sweden, and others quickly are seeing violence outbreaks and anger among the citizens.  Emigrants bring cultural baggage after all.

That 107 year old man must have been truly frightening to waste all that tax payer money.  I like the police, but when I read something like that, I am pretty sure they didn't need to go all out.... but hey, I wasn't there, and I know they all want to get home to their families.  So safety first.

Title: Re: World News
Post by: MasterXtreme on 2016-06-12 20:39:28
^ Sounds like it was 50 killed from gun shots wounds by this radical nut job terrorist. 

The FBI identified the gunman as Omar Mateen who was 29, and had a three year old child.  He had already been separated from his wife whom he regularly beat and he was a radicalized Muslim.  ISIS sympathizers have praised this killer for his actions. 

This is the most deadly terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 2001.

Police were in a standoff for nearly 3 hours before ramming a Bearcat armored police vehicle into the building and firing at the suspect and releasing all the hostages they could.  Another 53 were hospitalized.  It appears no officers were injured from what I can tell.

For many years, I and many others have been commenting that this obsession with bombs, both by terrorists and law enforcement, is pretty silly since a far higher number of deaths could be achieved by gunmen.  We've even used this as evidence that killing people is not the core aim of terrorists, but rather that they are seeking attention and spectacle, and thus that fearing them is not only playing into their hands but thoroughly irrational.

Going by the last couple of years, it's starting to look like there's been something of a pivot towards seeking casualties.  I don't know enough to say whether this is specifically an ISIS thing, but correlation is wiggling its eyebrows at me.

This will be huge if Britain exits the EU.

Brexit (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2016/06/22/when-we-know-result-brexit-vote/86221668/).

Hypothetically, if Britain leaves the EU, who will follow?  Europe has always been shaky, and the fact that we have relative peace and a union has resulted in no wars between nations since WWII.  If a major player leaves the EU, especially a US ally, could this allow for a more negative EU to US interests?  What about a weaker EU, or a EU that crumbles apart and begins wars again.  The EU collapses or shows weakness, who's to say that Russia won't sweep in and take over nations or gather their bloc again?

We need to set up vigorous trade agreements to help both our economies more, not that Britain is free to control their own economic future more, and devote it all to themselves and not the EU.  They can also control they immigration once again.

I think it's a shame.  London will probably decline a bit, particularly as its financial services sector contracts.

I'd have much preferred to see the introduction of real, vigorous democracy in the EU (more power vested in the Parliament, less in the Commission) but I fear that the departure of the UK will only hasten the EU's ongoing spiral into a mire of hopeless bureaucracy.

That assumes that Brexit doesn't catalyze the EU to fall apart entirely in the next 10-20 years, which would be an awful outcome for the West, and is more or less Putin's wettest dream.

@Silverwing: A pan-Anglo trade deal seems modestly likely, and I think it would be a very good thing on the whole, though I do fear it could promote further insularity if relied on too heavily.

The EU has been doomed for awhile honestly, and this was a main pillar that left the foundation.  Putin is really excited about this development and has certainly viewed all his options.  Not just Putin, but other outside people who want the West to crumble.

At this moment in time, the person who came out on of Brexit are Donald Trump and the British people.  But it won't be easy being independent again.  It's going to take a lot of hard work, something Britain knows how to do!  Barely a century ago, they had an empire that spanned the entire world.  Never did the sun set on their empire.

Here (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/23/eu-referendum-what-the-world-is-saying---britains-historic-decis/) are some reactions from people below about Britain's leave from the EU. 

The EU's leadership has demanded Britain activate Article 50 exit talks "as soon as possible" as they attempt to end the uncertainty over the bloc, "however painful that process may be".  "Any delay would unnecessarily prolong uncertainty. We have rules to deal with this in an orderly way," it said. Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, earlier said: "We are determined to keep our unity as 27 ... I will propose that we start a period of wider reflection on the future of our union," adding: "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger."

German Chancellor Angela Merkel voiced regret at the decision to leave the European Union, calling it a "blow" to Europe. "We take note of the British people's decision with regret. There is no doubt that this is a blow to Europe and to the European unification process," she said.

Obama urged Britain to remain in the EU when he visited London in April and warned that a trade agreement between the two countries would not happen anytime soon if Britain left the bloc. But on Friday, President Barack Obama released a brief statement, saying the US respected the decision, and that the relationship between the two countries was "enduring". He added: "The United Kingdom and the European Union will remain indispensable partners of the United States even as they begin negotiating their ongoing relationship to ensure continued stability, security, and prosperity for Europe, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the world." However, the White House on Friday night said that the president stood by his warning that Britain would move to the back of the queue when it comes to trade deals.

The Pentagon said it was confident that defence ties with Britain would continue and that U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter spoke with his counterpart, Michael Fallon, by phone after Britain voted to leave the European Union.

Vladimir Putin has said Britain's vote to leave the EU reflects growing concerns about immigration and security. Speaking to reporters, the Russian president also said the vote is a response to unhappiness with Brussels bureaucracy. Mr Putin said Brexit would have both "positive and negative" consequences for Russia and the rest of the world, but that he expected markets to stabilise from the initial shock.

French President Francois Hollande said he profoundly regrets the decision, but that the union must make changes in order to move forward. He said, "To move forward, Europe cannot act as before."

"We hope Britain and the EU can reach a negotiated agreement at an early date. A prosperous and stable Europe is in all sides' interests," a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman has said, warning there would be “impacts on all sides” from the vote. "Britain's decision to leave the EU has prised off the first brick from the mansion of globalisation," added Xinhua, the Chinese state news agency.

Paolo Gentiloni, the foreign minister in Italy, said that Britain would remain an ally, despite the vote.

Carl Bildt, the former Swedish prime minister, has predicted chaos "beyond comprehension" after the result. He noted that the Zimbabwean dollar was gaining on sterling.  Annie Lööv, the leader of Sweden's Centre Party, called the vote "a day of mourning. A nightmare".

Geert Wilders, the leader of an anti-immigration party, called for a referendum on the Netherlands' EU membership following the British result. "We want be in charge of our own country, our own money, our own borders, and our own immigration policy," he said.

The British territory voted by 19,322 votes to 823 to stay in the EU, meaning 96 per cent of the electorate chose Remain. Turnout was 84 per cent. Just minutes after the referendum result was confirmed, Spanish Foreign Minister José Manuel García-Margallo took the opportunity to propose shared sovereignty with the UK over Gibraltar. 

Turkey has expressed disappointment over the UK's vote to leave the European Union.

Britain's vote to leave the European Union has very significant implications for Ireland, the Irish government said ahead of an emergency cabinet meeting on Friday. Britain is by far the largest trading partner for Ireland and any loss of access to the UK market would be devastating for the country's economy.

We must respect the choice that a majority of the British people have made. At the same time, I won’t hide the fact that I think it is a very sad result for Europe and for Denmark,” said Lars Lokke Rasmussen, the prime minister.

Poland’s foreign minister said the British vote “is bad news for Europe and bad news for Poland.”

“The British voters have spoken and that’s the way it is,” said Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg, the prime minister. She also warned that the decision will be "a boost for extreme forces that want less cooperation in Europe." Solberg whose country is not an EU member, said Friday they are "anti-establishment, anti-globalization, anti-EU forces (...) that can be pretty extreme."

Malcolm Turnbull, Australia’s prime minister, has told Australians not to panic over the Brexit decision  as the local share market slumped. He said Australia’s relationship with Britain would remain “as close as any two nations' relations could be”.

Shinzo Abe, the Japanese prime minister, said financial markets need to be stabilised in the aftermath of Britain's vote to leave the European Union, with the yen surging against other currencies and Japanese stocks plunging. "We must respond firmly", the prime minister said in a speech in northern Japan on Friday. "The foreign exchange market and other financial markets need to be stabilized". There are also concerns in Tokyo that Britain's departure from the EU will affect negotiations on a free trade agreement between Europe and Japan, Kyodo News reported, with Motoo Hayashi, the trade and industry minister, admitting completing a deal before the end of the years has "become difficult".

South Korea reacted to Britain's decision to leave the European Union by announcing that it is willing to consider a bilateral free trade deal with the UK.

Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, has released a statement on Cameron's resignation: "I have great appreciation for Prime Minister David Cameron, a respected leader and a true friend of Israel and the Jewish people. "Throughout his premiership the security, economic and technological cooperation between the United Kingdom and Israel has greatly expanded. 

Donald Trump hailed Britain's vote to leave the EU as "fantastic" shortly after arriving in Scotland on Friday for his first international trip since becoming the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton pointed to the stunning Brexit vote as yet another reason why she should be elected president. "This time of uncertainty only underscores the need for calm, steady, experienced leadership in the White House to protect Americans' pocketbooks and livelihoods, to support our friends and allies, to stand up to our adversaries, and to defend our interests," she said in a statement. "It also underscores the need for us to pull together to solve our challenges as a country, not tear each other down."

A friend was mentionin how Scotland and Ireland were mad. Said something like, "What's the point of the United Kingdom leaving the EU if it's not going to stay united after it leaves." Then someone else brought up that that's a major issue when 3 countries have to share the same space.

Scotland amuses me with its whole, "We're not represented!" Meanwhile Wales be like, "... Srsly?"

Globalism, One world order folks, Obama, Hillary, and progressives.
This bit confuses me.

Me too.  I'm not really getting the "one world government" thing.  It's presently filed under "tinfoil hats" in my brain.

Actually, "globalism", "one world order", and "progressives" are currently all in very different buckets.

There are theories that suggest the people in charge (some) have been trying to make a one world government.  Various organizations has furthered this.  The EU, for example.  There have been talks about a global tax, and other things that suggest a one world government.  Body chips, world identification, etc.

That just muddies things further.  My original confusion was at the implication that globalism, which I've always understood as a primarily economic concept, was somehow to be laid at the feet of two current politicians of one party, when it goes back decades with support from both parties.  NWO is an old and rather vague term which has been used to mean a generalized global paradigm, sometimes an ominous but nebulous one.  And now talk of a single global government apparently based at least in part on America's dubious but also long-running policy of "keeping the world safe for democracy."  I'm still not getting how this is somehow a recent, partisan issue.  Though, this is starting to sound like it might fit in better in the Politics thread anyway.

Two bits here.

Express (http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/683739/EU-referendum-German-French-European-superstate-Brexit).

So imagine a "superstate" Europe.  Margaret Thatcher back in the day said uniting Europe as one wouldn't work like it did in the United States.  She said, in simpler terms, that Europe was made up of many histories and distinct cultures that can't just morph together.  The US, at the time, had a common goal, despite all the different backgrounds, to want to start a new, create their own path, and be free.  Liberty.

In these articles, this superstate would have one power, one government, and dissolve national identity into one "EUROPE" superstate.  Sure, each country would be like a state or province, with their own uniqueness, but there would be one army, and cut back on tons of waste.

I won't give any opinions here. 

So yeah, take this news source as you wish.

Is Mexico North America or South America?  They've been shoved into a sub category to make them feel special leading what is called, "Latin America" or "Central America."  They are neither south, nor really north?  What are they?

Mexico's leaders recently talked with Canadian's about wanting to be accepted into part of North America's exclusive region of exclusiveness.  Where beaches are sandy, mountains are high, and people get higher using Mexico's drugs.

Mexico is to some people Central America, and some say North America.  Then there are still some who remove Central America and just have North and South America. 

But there is a diff in Latin America and Central America.  Latin America is a demographic term.  Not Geographic.  So Latin America is everything including Mexico south.  Central America, depending on what you use as a source, is everything south of Mexico to Columbia.

... I'd looked into vet school for a while; in the process, I noticed an awful lot of the students were remarkably top-heavy.  I guess big boobs makes you a better vet?
Maybe they remind the patients of their mothers.  The pets, I mean.  Even older dogs and cats like to cuddle up and suckle when they feel insecure or nervous.

I've noticed the same thing in dental assistants.  Makes sense, I guess... if I'm in the chair having the doc pick and drill away at my rotten teeth, I want something nice to look at to alleviate the pain a bit.

But the bigger busts come in handy when the doctor situates themselves where the head of the chair is in front of their chest and over their legs, and they tell the patient too scoot up. It tends to make the patients end nestle up on boobs.

As for vets with big busts, I can't really confirm. I have a small bust, my roommate has an even smaller bust, I have another friend going into vet stuff who is a DD, and then one who's DDD maybe bigger. In my classes there's mostly flat chested girls (A-B's). No need for me to explain why I notice these things >3<

Really all of you are cracking me up.  I will say that my dental assistant has a larger bust then other women.  That's all I got to add.  Though when you are in a dental chair, you're to lay like, flat on this chair thing.  It can be rather strange... I would assume.

Eeeh.  People want to find meaning in their lives.  Since there's no objectively discernible point to existence, this can be a bit tricky.

The well-adjusted plod along and amplify the importance of local events.  They get a passable job and fill in the gaps with entertainment media and some socialization.  Maybe even a hobby.  Bread and circuses.

The less well-adjusted find escape through drugs.  Many eventually can't find their way back.

Further down the chain you have gangs.  And most religious violence is really just a riff on the same theme, afaict.

The reason that Islam is flavor-of-the-week probably boils down to:

1. The middle-east is a hell-hole & has been for some time; and
2. Inertia / Self-fulfilling-prophecy-ism.

Islam as widely practiced is regressive wrt modern sensibilities, and I don't have much love for it.  But if it disappeared tomorrow, I'm confident that the scum would just grow around some other poor host meme.

Suspect yells that, "End if near," and he will kill many more officers. (http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Police-shooting-Images-0707_Dallas-Fort-Worth-385948011.html)

Four officers are dead – three Dallas police officers and one DART transit officer – after two snipers ambushed and opened fire on police at the end of a peaceful protest against nationwide officer-involved shootings Thursday night, officials say.
Eleven officers were shot by gunmen who were still at large hours after what was believed to be a coordinated shooting, according to Dallas Police Chief David Brown.
"We believe that these suspects were positioning themselves to triangulate on our officers and planned to injure and kill as many law enforcement officers as they could," Brown said.
One person was taken into custody at about 11:30 p.m., Dallas police said, following an exchange of gunfire with Dallas SWAT officers. A suspicious package was located near that person, and the package is being investigated by bomb squad personnel.

There are real problems with law enforcement in the US, some places more than others.  I can't say how much is racially motivated, only that it's definitely not restricted to any particular demographic, which means it still boils down to a LE problem.  The media--and I mean media of all political biases--has been stoking the racial angle for a while now, I would guess for the boost in ad revenue they get from the viral traffic which hot-button topics like this generates.  Between this and BLM, I'm honestly surprised something like this hasn't happened sooner.  BLM (er, not the Bureau of Land Management, that Oregon standoff is a completely different flavor of nutty) is really doing themselves, and likely others, more harm than good.

I came here to give my opinion, but I see that Hulkbow already gave it ^^

The online ads funding model seems to provide very perverse incentives to news publishers, incentives that did not exist to anything like the same extent in the age of the newspaper.  (To the extent that they did exist, we got tabloids.)  It's more than a little troubling.

I wonder to what extent this moral hazard is to blame for the recent surge in political populism?  A (Euro-focused) paper I read a few days ago gave the opinion that populism bottomed out in the early 80s and has been coming back since, which I suppose is contra evidence.  On the other hand, most of populism's rapid gains have been concentrated in the last decade.  On the gripping hand, perhaps that just means that the GFC was the primary trigger?
Title: Re: World News
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-07-08 19:51:07
My friend wrote this out and posted it on a pro BLM post only for it to get deleted by posted because "her post her rules". Anyway. I felt like sharing it.

990 people were shot by cops last year.
748 of those were while an attack was in progress.
216 were other factors.
44 were undetermined.
Of the 990: 948 were male. 42 were female.
494 were white.
258 were black.
172 were Hispanic.
66 were other races.
782 of the 990 had a deadly weapon on them.
54 used a vehicle as a weapon.
34 had a toy weapon.

The only disparity out there is, whites are killed more often and have more run ins with cops than black people do. On average, 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012, according to the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports. Using FBI and CDC statistics, Professor Johnson calculates that 112 black men, on average, suffered both justified and unjustified police-involved deaths annually during this period.

This equals 2.5 percent of these 4,472 yearly deaths. For every black man — criminal or innocent — killed by a cop, 40 black men were murdered by other black men. The, at most, 2.5 percent of the problem generates relentless rage. And, yet, it is rude-to-racist to mention 97.5 percent of the problem.

FACT 1. Over 1,400 more black Americans murdered other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968.
According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute.

FACT 2. Black People (mostly men) commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime.
In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders.
In other words: black people–at just a fifth of the size–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.
The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore: Lawbreaking black Americans, young black males particularly, put themselves in close proximity to (mostly white male) police officers at rates sometimes five to 10 times higher than whites. This is a recipe for disaster. Thusly….

FACT 3. Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks committed half of homicides in the United States for nearly 30 years.

DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides.
In 2013, black criminals committed 38% of the murders. Whites accounted for just 31 percent.
There are five times fewer black people than white people in America and, yet, they consistently carry out a larger share of the crimes? Given this rate, it’s no wonder that there aren’t more assistances where cops kill black criminals.

FACT 4. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined.
There have been almost as many deaths in one American city as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century.
Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.

FACT 5. It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.

University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012.
Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.

The online ads funding model seems to provide very perverse incentives to news publishers, incentives that did not exist to anything like the same extent in the age of the newspaper.  (To the extent that they did exist, we got tabloids.)  It's more than a little troubling.
Heh, my previous post is a grammatical mess.  Glad it wasn't completely incomprehensible.

I'm not sure the ad revenue issue is all that new though.  It seems more that the media has gotten a lot bolder over time in how far they're willing to go for those views.

Professor Johnson calculates that 112 black men, on average, suffered both justified and unjustified police-involved deaths annually during this period.
[...]
This equals 2.5 percent of these 4,472 yearly deaths.
[...]
That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population
There's way more in that post than I want to tackle, so I'll only hit some parts which stood out.  Though firstly, a [citation needed] on those numbers; not saying they're necessarily wrong, but they need to be supported before they can be taken seriously.

While looking at absolute numbers is of course one valid way of presenting data, it comes with implications.  In absolute terms the figures look more or less as your friend stated, but consider in terms of deaths compared to population percentages and you get a wholly different picture--one that indicates that in any given interaction with LE, a black male is more likely to wind up dead.  But trying to draw any sort of conclusion based solely on raw figures would be premature, so crying "Racism!" in response is just as faulty as crying "Thug culture!" or whatever else one cares to come up with.  (In truth, both probably play their parts, but to say the numbers support either is the error.)

Using the same percentage-based figures rather than absolute numbers for crimes by different demographics also changes the picture, in this case to an even stronger disparity in crimes perpetrated by each. 

Quote
The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore
Politics-baiting only serves to polarize people further.  This alone could've been reason enough for your friend's post to get deleted.  The point is also largely irrelevant to the topic of LEO abuse of power.  It is a problem, just a separate one, and muddling them together only makes for a muddied argument.  Same with BLM's argument, where I see two separate issues:  LEOs violating the public's civil rights, and a question of racial discrimination.  Actually a third as well, being the judicial system failing to maintain checks on enforcement, which only exacerbates the situation, and likely leaves members of the public feeling that the only way to find justice is by their own hands; hence, Dallas.

Has race relation gotten better after President Obama was elected?  Didn't people tout us electing him as a bridge towards a future without as much racism?  I feel that if anyone has propelled us to a new era of worse race relations, it has been our president and his committee.  It is a shame really.  He could have used his position to help things, but instead seems to always say the wrong things.

I remember when he was first elected, there was an officer involved shooting (I don't remember the exact case, but if I find it, I will link it).  Immediately Pres. Obama attacked the officer saying his actions were wrong.  After the investigation, the officer was found in the right and the person he shot was completely in the wrong.  I don't believe that racism can only be a white thing.  Whoever came up with that idea is dead wrong, and said an uniformed statement. 

Did I mention (and I shouldn't mention, but since there is so much heated race debate), the two recent officer involved shootings that killed two African American's (both of which were committing crimes or breaking the law at the time), did you know that neither of those officers were white that shot?  The recent Dallas PD shooting was directed at white officers, and white officers only.  Isn't that racism?  Isn't that a hate crime?  Aren't all crimes besides maybe theft and some others, a hate crime?

I think the main "defense" people use when people ask if one can be racist against whites is "white people are privileged so they can't be oppressed" or "white people aren't a race".

But in a similar vain, does that mean "privileged" Hispanics or African Americans can't be victims of racism?

This world is just so crazy, and this country constantly feels like it's tearing itself apart. Instead of standing together we're pushing each other away and letting hatred blind us. And instead of seeing tragedy in these events, people use them to advance their campaigns, to advance their organizations beliefs. And that's sick.

I don't know which case you're thinking of either, so I can't comment on it directly.  However, one of the issues around LE accountability has long been that almost universally the investigations exonerate officers.  It's the more recent proliferation of video which have caught officers blatantly lying, such as the recent road rage off-duty cop incident (and surprisingly he was stripped of his badge and gun as soon as the video surfaced).

Yeah, that's part of the tumblrina/SJW attempt at redefining terms to suit their agendas.  Unfortunately, many people appear to have accepted this version over long-standing and easily found dictionary definitions.

Quote
the two recent officer involved shootings that killed two African American's (both of which were committing crimes or breaking the law at the time),
The recent ones I can think of were the guy selling CDs and the traffic stop with the CCW holder.  The CD guy had a gun in his pocket, but I don't know yet the reasons why the officers initiated contact with him; what I have seen of it seems fishy, but I'm reserving judgement until I find out more.  The CCW holder appeared to have done everything right--he informed the cop that he had a firearm on him and a permit to carry it, which is what you're supposed to do.  The officer seems to have panicked at that, but again more info is needed.  Still, it doesn't appear the CCW holder was doing anything illegal.  Maybe we're thinking of different cases.

The cop who shot the CCW holder was apparently Hispanic, though the passenger identified him as Asian.  The two who took on the CD seller were both white as I recall.  As for the Dallas guy, I would certainly call it racism on his part.  But bringing charges of that sort, or really any other, are rather pointless seeing as how he's kinda dead.

He was a symbol/sign of such a future.  A milestone.  Many romanticized it (see: Nobel Peace Prize, though that's always been the unwanted stepchild of the real Nobel prizes).  I don't think any cool heads were suggesting that Obama's Blackness would join with the Seal of the POTUS and By Their Powers Combined wipe racism off the face of the US.

I don't believe that racism can only be a white thing.

Of course not.

By dint of being the majority, whites suffer less systematic racism than other identified ethnic groups in the US.

Now, some seem to feel a very Catholic need to whip themselves for the sins of others.  Some others feel a very hipster need to dis their apparent in-group to appeal to their actual in-group.  And others feel an understandable but ill-directed rage at the state of play.

The result seems to be the framing of the largest problem as the only problem, which is an excellent way to alienate half of your potential supporters.

So instead of debating ways to reduce the global rate of discrimination and to minimize tribalism, we're here whining about semantics.  (Also, solving tribalism is a Hard Problem, while bemoaning semantics is easy and fun!)

Turkey's Military Attempts a Coup (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-07-15/turkish-premier-says-elements-of-army-attempt-to-seize-power).  We are still waiting to know if it was successful.  We don't know if it is a good thing or not yet, and since Turkey is a NATO member, this is really interesting.  NATO doesn't protect a nation from itself, just foreign attackers.  Who do we side with?  The Turkish government or the military?  The military has stated they want to restore Democracy in Turkey, as they feel that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has become too radical, which may be true.  In recent months he has clamped down on the freedom of media, increased human rights abuses, and much more.  So only time will tell with this one.  Our Obama Administration (http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/world/article89937372.html) had no prior knowledge to this coup, which is also a bit worrisome about our current intelligence.  Warplanes flew over the Turkish capital and tanks surrounded the Parliament (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/07/15/turkey-low-flying-jets-and-gunfire-heard-in-ankara1/).

Hmmmm.  This is shocking news because of the importance Turkey has, especially in location.

Turkey's formation was meant to be based on Western style governments.  The founder(s) did not want it to be an Islamic state, or run by religion.  They wanted it to be secular.  So I am really curious what will happen.  Syria's leader is probably thrilled by this vulnerability in Turkey.  They dislike each other, a lot.

Take this with a grain of salt, but this just based on something Sky News out of England just said... it would seem that the coup may have been a failure, and the military is stepping down.  Again, don't just believe that yet.  But it seems the people on the streets didn't want this, and the military is moving out of their positions.

If this is true... heads will roll... those who led this coup, better get their plans set to run out of the country.

The country as a whole has spent a long time being very pro-LE, with phrases like "tough on crime" getting approving nods (and election-time votes), resulting in free pass for officers.  Now throw in assorted wars on the citizenry (drugs, terror), access to military equipment for whatever they like, legal protection from any requirement to help members of the public, and "whatever it takes to get home alive" to the general hero worship and you wind up with a clusterfsck (http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2011/08/31/actor-steven-seagal-sued-for-driving-tank-into-arizona-home-killing-puppy/#781d582c77f8) of a situation.  There's a huge amount of correction needed.

And of course there's the media problem.  Yes, they do harp on about white-on-black abuses, while often ignoring other combinations.  I don't have statistics in front of me, but I suspect that the majority of white-on-black killings or other assaults haven't been hate-fueled Joe Random white citizens since at least the '70s, leaving either self-defense situations or...cops.  So all this combines to look like it's all white cops abusing black members of the public, when that's far from the whole picture.

Then again, there are lots of things which are far too common to bother reporting on.  Like how you'll hear about plane crashes more often than car crashes, which could give the impression that planes are falling out of the sky at an alarming rate.

And here's the thing, the past decade after the 1990s, crime has been on the decline (https://www.brennancenter.org/publication/what-caused-crime-decline).  You can claim it was over policing, and it was true, are jails were and still are overpopulated.  The US jails more people then any other country, legally.  It wasn't until this push back on law enforcement, and the weakening of police forces due to budget cuts, that we started to see crime increase.  2012 (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/04/us/violent-crime-in-us-rises-for-first-time-since-2006.html?_r=0) was the first year we saw crime officially increase overall.  So is there a tie in between policing budgets, how many people are jailed, and citizenry mindset of law enforcement?  Are our more lax laws on light drugs actually knocking down dominoes and causing more crime in the long run, or down the line?  Would it be better to stop crimes small before then continue down the domino line and get bigger?  I guess this is a question we will have to discuss overtime... and probably when it is too late.

All it takes to create more criminals is more laws--or misapplication of existing laws.  And secondary effects, like the drug wars creating profitable black markets.  Also, I forgot to include for-profit prisons to the equation in my previous post, which has already revealed kickbacks-for-convictions scams which would obviously obviously skew crime statistics.  There's a lot of assumption about honesty in the system--that crimes being reported are actual crimes, that LE and court systems function as advertised--which only complicates the situation even further.  Time has dimmed my once optimistic view of the legal system.  Good points in your linked articles too.

There are problems enough with the whole mess as to make the mind whirl.  But it's good that discussions are coming of it, since it's harder to fix what everyone either doesn't know about or willingly ignores.  Actions like those of the Dallas sniper are definitely not the right way to bring awareness, but it's to be hoped that they'll be used as a wake-up call for proper change and not for retaliation or other regressions.

The media does no help at race relations or law enforcement respect.  How many white guys have been killed by police?  Why don't they ever talk about that?  Oh, because it doesn't fit into their narrative.

Civilians are innocent until proven guilty.  If you are a police officer, according to most news media and social media, you are guilty until proven innocent.

As for Munich's incident (which is actually a greater and global problem) I do hope that if there are more low lives involved, that they are captured and punished to the fullest extent possible, unless they are shot to death, in which they can burn in Hell.

More news learned about the Munich terrorist/murder that ended up killing at least nine people at a mall.

Source (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/what-know-ali-david-sonboly-8476548)

You can read the suspects name at the link, I don't feel they deserve any attention by me posting it here.  They were 18 years old, German-Irianian citizenship.

He used an illegal Glock 9mm pistol and had 300 rounds of ammunition.  He shot himself to death before police got to him.  In his backpack at the scene of the suicide, was a book that translates roughly as: "Amok in the head: Why students kill."

In footage he was seen bursting from a McDonald's restaurant toilet before opening fire on children he reportedly screamed 'Allahu Akbar' before shooting them at close range.

He then pushed through the front doors into the street and carried on shooting, killing at least one pedestrian whose body was later pictured covered on the ground.  Witnesses reportedly heard the man, who appeared in the footage to be carrying a red Pokemon rucksack, screaming: “Ich bin Deutsch, scheiss Ausländer” – “I’m German, f*** foreigners” before opening fire.

After what appeared to be a two hour information blackout, police revealed that the gunman's body had been found 1km away from the shopping centre.

How he managed to escape the scene given that 100 police were in and around the shopping centre has not been revealed.

Sounds like a case of a foreigner being a perpetual foreigner.  He may have been a German citizen, but not in the eyes of the German natives.  No matter what he did... he was always a foreigner.  Doesn't make what he did right....

Germany has been on high alert since Afghan refugee Muhammad Riyad went on an axe rampage on a train in Bavaria before being shot dead by police.

Racial tensions in the country have increased since the arrival of an estimated 1.2m refugees over the past 12 months with far right parties gaining in support.

Rottie's are another breed that get bad raps. I'm not sure if they count as a bully breed. I know Boxers count as bullies, but they don't get bad raps. Even though they're a nigh uncontrollable dog if they aren't snipped or trained well. But you can say that about any dog. But yeah, the guard dogs like Dobermans, Rotties, Pitties, and the American Staffordshire Terrier, hell even German Shepherds, get portrayed in a bad light. As aggressive, more biologically predisposed to be vicious dogs. But they're not. They have the potential to be that, sure, but just as much to be loving good dogs.

Rotties, like GSDs, are a herding breed.  Originally, anyway.  If memory serves, the herding dogs of their time were also expected to protect the herd, which is how these older style herders have taken on more aggressive duties.  But I could be misremembering that last bit; double check before quoting me on it.

And just look at that big floppy fluff!  Speaking of which, are you familiar with Pal (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pal_%28dog%29), the laddie who played the original Lassie?  Pretty interesting story.

Princeton.... Seriously. I can't. I can't even. Why? Why has "political correctness" become so freaking anal.

It's sad to see seats empty for the Olymic Games, I mean, it's the freaking Olympics! But I understand. Zika for one and the fact that Brazil is dangerous as frick! Didn't some of our athletes get robbed there already? I'm also assuming that some foreign countries (like Russia) might not have bought tickets for the track stuff because their entire team was banned for drug use. And track doesn't seem to be that popular it seems. Watching Bolt in action though must be amazing, he's just crazy fast. But track stars aren't really given much publicity. It's usually only Swim and Gymnastics that get attention, and their full auditoriums might be because those events take place during the evening (I think). Still a bummer though, these athletes train all their lives to show everyone their talent and to compete with the best, and people aren't there to support them.

Honestly, Brazil should have pushed back the Olympics so it wasn't during prime Zika season.

Texas teacher uses racial stur to name class reading group, feigns ignorance (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/09/02/a-texas-teacher-named-her-class-the-j-word-her-racial-slur-defense-ignorance/)

People are offended by this. When did we become so sensitive here in America? The only thing that offends me is this damn woman can't spell worth crap.  There's no h in that word.   And she's an educator.

"Commonly known" slur? My ass.   I began using that word (http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Jigaboo_Junction) when writing in my comic 25 years ago because I wanted to get away from the n word, which I though was too harsh, and I found a fairly obscure slur that suited my needs perfectly.  The "j" word carries about the same potency as a black person calling a white person "honkey".  Let's be honest, the only reason people even know that word is because of the Internet... and people like me, who like to throw a few Old Shames back into the faces of those who want to sweep their past insensitivities towards women and minorities under the rug.   At least own up to them, progressives of half-past 1997. Don't try to act like it didn't exist; it did.  It was your idea; you wanted it, you put time, effort, and money into making it happen.  If you found you woke up one morning all changed and said to yourself, "I don't want to do this anymore", hell, that's your problem, asshole.  Run away from your past if you wish, make any restitution and reparations you feel you must to assuage your conscience, but don't try to tell everyone I imagined it, or simply misinterpreted what I heard or saw due to some phantom mental defect on my part. That's just cheap and disingenuous of you.

I can't wait for Mad Max (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj6Tq3GZfrA) to go off on one of his rants about this after Labor Day weekend wraps up.   I know I'm going to have to dry-clean my drawers after laughing from hearing some 50-year old man use that word on the radio.

Commonly known racial slur? What the fudge, I didn't even know that was a freaking word. And oh oh, so just because she's WHITE it's automatically racist and you can't give her the benefit of the doubt. If she was black, nah it's a mistake and ignorance. F THIS! I hate society. I'm sorry, but I just detest people like this. Trying to get offended at everything, even if it's a simple mistake. People have become just such senstive little politically correct close minded babies they can't maybe consider it was an accident? Besides, was the whole team black or something? Just... God damn it.

I didn't even know that was a racially charged word?

I thought it was just a silly word. Like Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

As I said, it's about one step above one of them calling one of us "honkey" or white devil".  My brother's girlfriend got onto him recently for using the n-word, and it really drove home for me how society has changed. My dad used that word all the time around us kids growing up, and we never thought much of it. We were taught there were words you could say at home or in a close-knit circle of friends, but that you didn't say them on the playground or at church, because it was rude. And we didn't say it to one of them, of course, 'lessn you wanted your ass whupped.  But we never thought the day would come where you could lose your job or reputation over dropping a casual n-bomb or telling an offensive joke at the office. You're not even safe online.  Oh, your enemies can threaten to kill you and then piss on your corpse, they just can't use any ethnic, sexist, or homophobic slurs while doing it.

Also, I hate it when people ignorantly use "racist"and "prejudiced" interchangeably. A racist judges a group of people as inferior because of skin color. A bigot simply doesn't associate with a certain group usu. because of a negative past experience. They don't look at you as inferior, they just don't like you, or think you're dangerous. I'll happily be a bigot all day, but I've never been a racist person. I hate all people equally.

It sounds like you read a columnist's polemic.  Welfare states come with a bundle of problems, but the idea that there's an arrow of causation running from them to the other listed ills is... a strong assertion, in need of some strong evidence.

I'm pretty sure that is going to happen everywhere.  Look at people in society now days.  Not many could actually survive it needed.  We are so lazy, so soft, no one knows how to survive and to fend for themselves.

And, with high probability, they won't need to.  Specialization is the wellspring of industry; this is not an error condition, it is the key to modernity.

Though I do agree that laziness and consumption to the exclusion of production are serious problems.  Alas, many of the "traditional" solutions to these (imperialist narratives, a good old fashioned war, etc) are probably worse than the disease.

Well, leprosy spreads through touch and by mucus membranes liquid stuff. So I don't think it can spread by a person touching something and a few hours later someone else touches it. I believe I you do touch like fluids from them it would have to get into your system through your eyes, nose, or mouth.

I think the scariest part really is that it really can't be cured to my knowledge. You just hack off the dead limbs and then give them medication. It's not the leprosy that kills them, it's all the stuff that happens because leprosy is happening. Like blocked arteries and stuff.

It is a bad thing, no matter what.  Still the school needs to be scrubbed.  You know as well as me, kids are dirty.  Rub their noses, eyes, whatever, and they touch anything and everything. 

I hope the two kids who have it are cured without any losses.

The article says the school was decontaminated and diinfected. And I feel they are taking proper precautions, he'll they weren't even confirmed with leprosy. It's good the parents warned the nurses even before they were confirmed. And the school has cleaned and disinfected it.

It's the look of the girl's face in  her mug shot that really sells the story. It's all, "I'm Mommy's favorite... in every way imaginable."   Plus... this was her second incestuous marriage.  What does she have a ticket that they punch every time she ties the knot with a relative? If she marries two more kin, then her fifth violation of the laws of God and man is free.

Say, did you know incest is legal in New Jersey?  That was their mistake, see-- trying to do this in the Midwest.  They should have made the drive east and done it up right.

Just an update on the Washington State mall shooting that left five people dead, four women, one man.

An Island County Sheriff deputy (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/09/25/suspect-in-washington-state-mall-shooting-in-custody.html) arrested the 20 year old shooter, who is an immigrant from Turkey.  He was arrested in Oak Harbor, a town in a county west of Burlington where the shooting took place.  Deputies say the suspect acted "zombie like" when he was arrested, and they are not ruling out terrorism.

Update again on the mall shooting in Washington State. 

This story keeps getting stranger, and authors have again said they are not ruling out terrorism.  Sources (http://komonews.com/news/local/mall-shooting-suspect-creepy-multiple-arrests-disputes-09-26-2016) are now saying he had Tumblr/Twitter/ and social media accounts with ISIS and Islam material.  Neighbors around him say he was creepy and a scary kid.  Keep following this, especially after the homegrown terrorism in Minnesota that was also possibly a radicalized Islamic terrorist who stabbed 10 people.

Time for some update news.

Un-heard of weather events hit Pacific Northwest.  At least two tornadoes strike Oregon coast in never-before seen events.  Link (http://www.king5.com/news/local/tornado-reportedly-hits-manzanita-on-oregon-coast/336098772)

One of the tornadoes ripped through the coastal village of Manzanita tearing up ten blocks and damaging buildings and businesses.

What makes these events so weird as the Pacific Northwest never gets tornados or major storms, so this was a big shock to the region. Tornadoes don't usually start in such a mountainous region. Even weirder, these tornadoes started in the water then hit landfall.  No reports of any deaths.



The region isn't out of the storm warnings yet, as a stronger storm (http://www.king5.com/weather/october-storm-whats-coming-next/336138904) is to hit the region Friday night into Saturday with stronger winds.  The coast could see winds hit 70mph and above and inland regions like Seattle and Portland could see 60mph.  Power outages are expected.  No deaths or major injuries yet in this three storm punch to the region known for mild weather all year round.

Huh.  I'd expected the forum to lean differently on this one.

I think the Swedish prosecutor made the right call.  I don't see it as bowing to minority interests, but rather as upholding a broad definition of free speech.  Would you rather it be illegal to hang fabric with certain pictures here and there?  Sure, it's good grounds for further attention from relevant intelligence agencies, but it's not good enough for immediate prosecution, IMO.

Now Phillipine government officials are saying that their new president tends to say and try to do things without permission.  So he can say what he wants, but he isn't fully in control.  That nation is a big US ally, and I don't think they would want to give that up, no matter how anti-US their new president is.  He was elected in June of 2016, so he will be around awhile...

Russia really isn't as powerful as some people think. Putin has trapped himself and his legitimacy is only propelled with military victories.  But he cant't continue those victories now without getting more sanctions which will further hurt his country.  Russia has never never fallen from outside forces, but has always fallen due to itself.  It has imploded.

Russia isn't prepared for a Russia without Putin, but if he dies or disappears, the whole country could break up and fall apart, causing many problems.

True, Russia is held together by Putin. Hence why people see them as bad ass. Yeah if he dies Russia will implode because that's what it does. But the reason it's seen as strong is because of Putin. He's a smart man. We can't say they're not a threat because if he dies Russia would be unstable. We should worry about the now, a now where Putin is alive. And he is a conniving bastard. Yeah their form of success is military victories, but if no one is stopping them it's still a victory.

To be clear, I don't think Russia will try to invade America or something or we will invade Russia. But the way things are going, maybe I'm paranoid, but I fear it'll be like another Cold War. No actual carnage. But the fear that the other can do something bad to us via nuclear weapons and shit. Russia doesn't respect our current leader, Obama. Hillary sure as he'll isn't favoring herself to them, in fact I'm pretty sure they're pissed at her for trying to blame them for her short comings and failures.

It wasn't too long ago that the Chechnyan region was looking for funding from Putin, who wouldn't give it to them.  Now note, this is a Muslim area of Russia.  What did chechnya do?  They went to the Saudi's for money.  Putin didn't like that and quickly limited the money Saudi Arabia would give them, and a the same time, lowered the Saudi's influence if per chance.... Russia ever had an issue and it's leadership (which is too centralized) ever had it's legitimacy questioned.  We are pretty much seeing a country being too centralized, that it can't control itself anymore.  It is being held together by paperclips, gum, and Putin.  That's it. 
Title: Re: World News
Post by: Silverwing on 2016-11-02 10:40:40
Russia probably doesn't want a war or a Cold War, but the reason why they are expanding their military presence is because that is how his favorability ratings go up in Russia.  The country is down on it's luck right now, there is a horrible recession.  Not much positive news for the average Russian, so when they hear of military victories and strength, it riles up all those patriotic feelings.  That is partially why Russia is taking a leading charge in Syria too.  Crimea was the first step, but as Raine said, they are stuck in a hard place with that, and can't really do much more.  Crimea's take over further helped Russia own the important seaport of Sevastopol, which may be Russia's greatest seaport for international trade.

Now we are getting into some good conversation. I don't have much to add, it has been said.

But also note that Russia is not as powerful militarily as some think.  They would be good at defending their western portion of the nation, and they have nuclear weaponry.

Also Iran's leader is claiming Iranian soldiers will enter the US and Europe really soon.  They are beefing up their military and air force.  Spending billions, those same billions the Obama Administration just gave them for that horrible Nuclear deal that threatens all the nations in that region including Israel.

Terrorism In Ohio (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3978944/Active-shooter-reported-Ohio-State-University.html)

'Somali refugee student' shot dead after mowing down Ohio State classmates with his car and slashing them with a butcher's knife - injuring nine.

Fire alarm was pulled at Watts Hall just before 10am and Artan reportedly mowed down evacuating students and staff with his car.

He then got out of the vehicle and started slashing victims with a butcher knife.

A responding Ohio State University police officer shot Artan dead.

FBI not ruling out terrorism, ISIS ties.  Muslim student.

I'm sure the zoo is very sensitive about /their/ animals being hurt. Kangaroos are endangered and he very well could have hurt it a lot considering he KNOCKED IT OUT. I'm sure they see dogs as well, a dime a dozen. They're common. Doesn't mean ones life is more valuable than the other, but I guess to them, it does. Since a kangaroo is more rare and stuff. And well, the kangaroo was hurt. So...

Click the news links.  A Turkish man, shot and killed the Russian amabassador point blank in a gallery in Turkey.  It was on live tv when it happened and is all over the internet right now.  The man who shot them yelled "allah akbar" and said he did it because of Russian's involvement with Syria.  He was later shot and killed by police in a standoff. 

I won't post it, because it is graphic.  The man shoots the ambassador in the back I think, then shoots him several more times as he slumps over.  The man then starts screaming at the audience pointing his gun at them and screams at them in Turkish.

Čabrinović's first attack, a grenade, actually failed; the two rounds fired by his associate Gavrilo Princip-- one for Ferdinand, the other for his wife Sophie-- struck true.  He may have been a lousy shot, but a mistake in the scheduling of the royal procession allowed him to coolly approach the royal couple as they sat right in their car and shoot them at point-blank range.

In the States we have like 4 or 5 classes of storm.  In Sweden they have 3.  This storm is a level 2, which means it will likely cause damage.  So it is supposedly going to be a big storm for them.  Hope they and Norway are okay.  It will probably lose steam as it heads over to Finland.

Debbie Reynolds was 84.  It's sad when a parent outlives their child; perhaps this was a small mercy.   I recall seeing Fisher in an episode of The Big Bang Theory a couple of years back and being surprised to learn she was then only about 58 or 59-- I thought she looked rather tired and haggard (although she was playing herself being annoyed with Sheldon and her co-star James Earl Jones' childlike antics, waking her up in the wee hours with a game of ding-dong ditch-- perhaps she was supposed to look tired).  Stress, mental illness, and drug abuse can have a prematurely aging effect on a person.

No... he's alive and well.   In fact, an ALF movie has been in the works, with CGI instead of puppets, for a few years now.
Hopefully he won't say this in the film.

ALF was one of my favorite shows growing up and happened to be a huge influence on my work... as you can see here (http://sta.sh/01zfpl3virrt).

Ah, so that's good to hear. Odd they're using CGI, I mean, even the muppets movie used well... The actual puppets. I feel like it definitely wouldn't look right. Not being a nostalgia freak here, but the jerky movements, the texture of the puppet, it would probably be lost if they do CGI. Unless their CGI is crazy good and can capture that. But even then, it could be noticeable and jarring to those who go to see it because nostalgia.

My parents love Alf. My dad especially. Brings him up on ocassion.

From what I've read, the specially-designed sets they used got to be a pain in the ass after a while, and the actors who worked on the show do not have fond memories of it (if the look the actress playing Lynn tips someone off-camera when "ALF" says "Straddle me" is any indication).

So if it was four white guys who kidnapped a mentally-enfeebled black man, beat and tortured him, it'd be a hate crime. but when it's four black guys assaulting a white boy it's "taking back"?

Minorities are expected to make up over half the US population by 2050.

Hispanics/Latino's are 17% but are more likely around 20% due to the illegal population. 

Asians will surpass Blacks who make up about 10% of the US population.  Right now Asian's are 6%.

The white alone population is still an astounding 72%.  These numbers don't add up perfectly because I did some rounding up, since the last census was in 2010 and has changed.

Not in my old 'hood, they don't.  just take a walk on the railroad tracks sometime with a stopwatch and see how long it takes for a gang of blacks to show up and beat you. I think you could go out walking in the desert a hundred miles from the closest city, step on a railroad track, and, boom, there's a gang, armed, right there, ready to whallop you.

Monkey f****s a deer (http://nypost.com/2017/01/10/this-monkey-and-deer-have-the-hots-for-each-other/)

 How can you tell if it's consensual, they ask? The deer isn't screaming.  As a cat owner, Ive learned to tell the subtle difference.  A cat being forced into sex, male or female, becomes quite loud and aggressive.  Also, it's quite possible the deer doesn't notice... monkey and ape penises are quite tiny.  A gorilla is literally four hundred pounds of dynamite with a quarter-inch fuse.

(A silverback gorilla who happens to be in just the room as I say this starts sobbing dramatically and runs out, slamming the door open and bawling all the way down the hall.)

Average household income by race has gone down drastically since the Obama Administration, after two peaks in the Bush Administration and Clinton Administration years.

The new average household income, which as dropped by nearly $8,000 during Pres. Obama's watch is as follows.  I rounded all numbers.

All races: $50,000
White, non Hispanic: $ 55,500
Asian (Eastern Asian, not the Middle East): $65,000
Hispanic: $39,000
Black: $32,000

And since we are on the topic....

Annual salary for a male is $65,000.
Annual salary for a female is $63,000.

Oh man, I just keep going.

So Blacks are far more prevalent on the East Coast of the United States, in some cases making up 90% of a cities population.  On the West Coast, Blacks on average make up less then 5% of a cities population, even less in the Pacific Northwest, but slightly more in Southern California.

Asians are more numerous on the West Coast then the East Coast.  Asian's concentrate in the Pacific Northwest around Seattle, Portland, and the San Francisco Bay Area, and can make up to about 12% of a city's population.  Asian's are not as big a minority on the east coast with only a few centers of influence.

Hispanic's make up majority populations in the Southwest, Inland Empire California, farming regions, and Texas rural towns.  They make up growing potations in urban centers outside of these regions too.

Between a streetlight that was burned out for the better part of two years and potholes so big you could lose a small car in one, the road I live on is downright dangerous and full of blind spots and bad patches.  I just noticed yesterday that the stop sign on my corner is missing, and the pole it was on bent over double.   We've lost a few neighborhood dogs to drivers who can't see too well on it at night, and my biggest concern is that some little kid might be struck by a careless driver on one of these back-roads.

It is a disgrace for a maritime country with more coastline then anyone in the world, to have a navy as old and weak as Canada's.  They can literally do nothing and would have to rely solely on the US.  The "best" Canadian Navy ship can't even cross the Atlantic Ocean and is almost 50 years old.  Canada keeps shrinking their military budget and relies on the coat tails of the US for military purposes.  They better start building up, because Russia wants more Arctic control... and Canada is losing.  The US will have to take control of it if Canada does not.

Oh... and this should say something.  Mexico's Navy is more capable then Canada's.

Has nothing to do with a Latino country.  Don't make it Latino nationalist problem based on ethnicity/race.

Why use a Latino countries naval power as an insult to throw at Canada? Das mean. Mucho cri.
Go throw shade at Spain and their navy lol.

Has nothing to do with a Latino country.  Don't make it Latino nationalist problem based on ethnicity/race.

It has everything to do with Mexico's lack of control in their own federal government and their lack of a real strong Navy. 

And while we are at it, Spain has a weak Navy too.

For a country like Spain, one would think they would want a better navy too, having all that control at the entrance to the Mediterranean.  Britain still owns that chunk of Gibraltar, so they have a lot of clout there too still.

Mexico is fuked because they have two coasts with no way of connecting forces, horrible supply lines, and a federal government as useful as mayonnaise on a 98 degree day in Arizona.  They have to build up two separate forces.

Canada has this amazing shield that protects not only them, but the US.  It's the vast Canadian Shield that is so desolate and empty, it would be nearly impossible at the current state to attack from the north.  But Canada needs to get their Navy together to long term security with resources and a growing Russian Arctic fleet.  If the ice melts more and more, this will become a more viable shipping lane/route and it will need to be controlled and protected. 

Mexico is in a poor state unfortunately, but they can't put a stop to the cartels and drug lords who dominate all levels of government.  They have no navigable rivers, and the country is not blessed geographically. 

Spain is also not even united with a region wanting to break away completely.  Protected with Andorra to the north, it also limits Spain's trade routes and hinders growth.  It has been a problem since before the 90s rebuilding.  Back in the old days, the mountains protected them, but limited them in growth, and still does to a degree.

The US is a melting pot of cultures that have a shared goal of success and freedom for the future.  Everyone can keep their cultures and beliefs, as long as they all support the American dream and shared cultural traits of being American. 

Canada is a multiculturist society that allows you to keep your freedoms, but blurs what it means to be Canadian.

Actually, it's the salad bowl now. Melting pot implies everyone melting down to the same thing. Which implies the opposite of what you said, Rainy.

Eh, Canadians do them. If you're gonna point a finger at Canada not having a defined thing for being Canadian, or not being united, America is the same to an extent. We aren't united. Sure we have the "American Dream", but that's just wanting to be successful. And who doesn't want that. Regardless if they live in Ameica or not. What it "means to be American" seem arbritray. What it means to be American is different to me than what it is for you. Thus, we don't have a uniform "what it means to be America". So, can't fault Canada for that. At least they're nice people lol :P

What does it mean to be American?  America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.  America is another name for opportunity. 

Or lets just find out what children think... Link (http://www.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=5235)

In short, "Being American," means being special.  A select group that has been blessed by God to live in our land of freedoms, ingenuity, and rights endowed by our Creator.  Being American means something different to every single person, but freedom is in everyone's definition.   Our Bill of Rights separates us from every other nation on earth, and helps make us unique. 

Being American is what you make of it.

So what does it mean to be Canadian?  Many things!  Being content, willing to work with compromise and enjoying a high quality of life set forth by our forefathers. 

The defining trait of being a Canadian (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-radio-and-tv-18086952) is understanding our good fortune, knowing that we're not actually better than anybody else, we're not better than the Americans. We're not better than the Britons. But, in a way, we're fundamentally lucky.

Through stewardship and wary hearts, Canada can continue to maintain a standard of living that unites the people together for tomorrow.  This is the essence of being Canadian.  Different, but not that different.

As far as French military might goes, the very first automobile accident occurred in France when an early steam powered-vehicle got out of control, barreled along at all of two miles an hour-- its top speed-- and knocked down a stone wall on a military base. The creator's reputation was ruined, and he later died penniless and in exile.   The jokes just write themselves.

I think of America as a patchwork quilt, myself.  Many pieces, many colors, sewn together, working in relative harmony..  Sometimes a stitch or two pops loose.  Sometimes a piece tears away. Sometimes the dog accidentally wees on it.

Japan plans to send largest warship to South China Sea, sources say (https://www.yahoo.com/news/exclusive-japan-plans-send-largest-warship-south-china-091539012.html).

So what is going on here, is Japan's Prez Abe is working with other Asian countries and the US to a lesser degree, to assert Japanese power again.  Their defense force is just that, defensive, but they are working on ways to actually build an Army, and the US is probably going to allow them to start making their army/navy great again.  Other Asian countries are feeling threatened by China and North Korea, so they are building an alliance against the in times of war.

We do have to be worried about China's manufacturing capability though.  With a nation developed in industry like theirs, they could probably outdo anything the US could have done in WWII.  Of course, they couldn't have back then, but today, they could produce a ton.  Maybe not great quality... and maybe not as technologically advanced... but sometimes numbers wins.

That is a really real worry.  You got Vietnam cozying up with whomever will side with them, so far Japan and the US, Singapore, etc... and they are building up their fleets too.  No one country of these Southeast Asian countries could stop China, but together they could certainly slow things down.  Taiwan has some of the most capable navy ships in the region rivaling China, simply because the US supplies and funds a lot of it.

Their northern section of the country is geographically level with China and allowed many Chinese dynasties to try and take over.  Vietnamese are amazing defensive fighters, never instigating the wars themselves unless you count the border raids in the 1970s into Thailand, but that was to kill opposition, not actually take land.

Turkey has been used for decades now as an example of a successful Islamic country with a secular democracy.  This all started with the founder of "modern" Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.  He said the only way for Turkey to be successful is to modernize like the European powers at the time.  He made people learn Latin, outlawed Fez hats, and made many reforms for push Islam away from the government.  He made Turkey a Republic and the most successful Islamic country for a middle class and freedoms.

Turkey has tried many times to join the EU, but the EU keeps them away, but close at hand... because it is a country partially split between Europe and Asia.  But it is important to also keep Russia trapped up there, and the EU wants more influence on Turkey then Russia to take it all.

Now with the current leadership, we are seeing a move to bring back Islamic roots.  We are seeing radicalization growing, and Sunni/Shia tensions rising.  We are seeing the current government becoming more Islamic and tying in Islam back to the government, and we are also seeing the country struggle with Syria and civil unrest growing as the radical groups continue to grow, due to the relaxing of a secular governance.  We might very well see a splitting of Turkey as a county, maybe a Euro part and Asian part.  That is very possible in the next few decades if these growing problems continue.

We can only help the next leader will stop the Islamic uprisings and bring back the Democracy as the forefront of the government.

IMO, forcing people to learn Latin and worrying about Fez hats were among some of the sillier things he did.  More notable was his unilateral abolishment of the Caliphate in 1924, which ended the Caliphate for good (it having existed in its then-current form for 400 years, and in one form or another since the birth of Islam in the 600s!).  This worked essentially because none of the other Islamic nations could decide who to declare as the replacement Caliph, nor which nation should host it.  Also key was his separation of church and state (so to speak), the removal of the sharia courts, and the modernization (and secularization) of education.  He also was ahead of most nations in promoting equality for women, in law and in culture.

Note that though he pushed towards democratic institutions for Turkey, he was not in his time able to run Turkey democratically.  He ruled effectively as a dictator, precisely because he faced tremendous blowback from the Islamic conservatives of his time.

Kemal Atatürk was a very interesting and remarkable man, albeit an authoritarian.  Erdogan, meanwhile, is a villain.

That Grand Canal in Niceragua would be a disaster!  Destroying several eco regions and destroying a massive fresh water lake and dividing towns! I hope the Chinese don't do that.  The country has already sold out.  They are doing that simply to control the water route so they don't have to go through Panama.  America maybe should never have handed over control of the canal, because we know China would use this new canal as an excuse to keep some of their navy fleet there.

It was mainly a sign of strength.  Under Obama, people would walk all over the US because they knew HE was weak and would never actually do anything.  This shows Trump will do something if you cross the line and use chemicals to kill innocent people mixed in with terrorists....

It is a risky move yes, but it is unlikely anyone will make a move.  It showed the world the US isn't messing around, and it certainly surprised Russia and China.... even making China want to have more "productive" talks with Trump.  Might finally get China to solve the North Korean issue and possibly get Russia to stop funding terrorism.

It's incredibly risky! Gosh. I know it's a sign of strength and shit, but we're not the worlds police. We shouldn't be sticking our dick where it doesn't belong. I don't like where this might lead. I don't want another war being started over this. What happened was horrible, yes, but this is just. I don't know.

And well, to be fair, Obama did take down Osama, but *shrug* he didn't completely do nothing. Gotta be a bit fair. But yeah. I don't know. Just felt a bit too hasty.
Title: Re: World News

As long as Assad isn't removed from power, everything will be okay in Syria.  Sadly continued fighting... but at least a worse terrorist wouldn't take control like ISIS, who really wants Syria to create their Islamic State.  It would allow them to have access to the Mediterranean.

Russia is in no position to make a strike back.  They might use harsh words, but Russia can not legitimately do anything.  Russia will continue to support the Syrian government to fight bad Islamic extremists.

China will take note of this, and quickly realize the Asian country alliances forming around them and the China Sea.  With them and the might of the US Navy, and the new found strength and legitimacy, China won't make such strong moves and threats, like they did under the weak Pres. Obama.  China might also be forced to finally deal with North Korea and fully cut off imports from them, therefore ending North Korea's only major income.  China does not want a Japanese or South Korean led attack on North Korea, because that also means a US presence.  That also means allied forces right on their doorstep, and they don't want that.  They would rather have them be kept away, so China would rather deal with North Korea.
Title: Re: World News

Obama didn't do diddly.  Osama tracking was all originally started by the Bush Administration, and the military simply continued tracking.  When they found him, Obama simply had to say yes.  It wasn't like it was his baby.  That was a previous administrations work there.

But I fully agree, I don't want a war, no one does... except maybe some Middle Eastern extremists cells.  Russia doesn't want war, China doesn't want war.  Every country, including the US, makes noises like this to show their strength and not to mess with one another.  This won't lead to war right now... unless it continues further in removing Assad... then it will be a war.

Oh yes, definitely. Many nation's have backup plans or plans on what to do when North Korea collapses...  Russia does, China does, Japan does, the US does, South Korea does.  Will it be a unified country?  Will China try to annex it?  Will Russia try to throw in a puppet leader?  What kind of gov will it adopt?  Lots can happen. 

The noise was made when Assad used chemical weapons to kill people.  It is in the UN Charter that countries cannot use chemical weapons.  If someone does it, it is up to the UN to respond.  Someone responded.
Title: Re: World News

But what's mystifying is how they got them. I know chemical weapons aren't allowed. But like... Weren't they all taken away and shit. And counted to make sure nothing was left? I recall some of my friends talking about this. And I was thinking well, can't they just make their own chemical weapons even if the UN had taken them away after banning them? They were going on the trail that either someone "miscounted, or lied" about the number of weapons or something. I'm not sure. The whole thing is just worrying.
Title: Re: World News
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-04-07 23:25:46
I probably wouldn't have responded either, BUT neither did Obama for 8 years.  First time Assad used chemical weapons, the Obama Administration worked with Russia and Syria and claimed to have removed "100% of the claimed chemical weapons" in the country.  Not the claimed...

Clearly Syria hid a bunch.

Obama made the infamous "red line" statement and said no one should pass it or there would be consequences... well as we can see now and saw then, Obama was stepped on and walked all over on by other nations both trade wise and politically.  America shed that imagery and is now back to showing strength and actually set a firm "Red line" this time.  If you cross it, there will be consequences. 

This recent chemical weapons depot blowout was done to reduce casualties that Assad would continue to have done with his airplanes and chemical weapons.  Only six Syrian airbase people were killed compared to the hundreds Assad killed last Tuesday with chemical weapons, and the tens of thousands more for the past seven years.

Where this strike could backfire is as if it is seen by the Islamic world as a strike against Assad fighting the Islamic State, or ISIS.  It will probably be spun that way...

^ That is something MasterX had warned about too, and Rainy touched on it.  Very likely it can be seen as an attack on Islam too, or so the terrorist groups will spin it that way.  Russia and Iran have a lot invested in Syria and their fight on ISIS.  Iran wants ISIS gone too... at least in their part of the country.  So they support Syria will billions of dollars to help them surround ISIS and rid of them.

Sukhoi-22 fighter jet of the Syrian air force.  These were reduced to rubble in the attack, as it was this air force that dropped the chemical weapons.

Russia's Navy is extremely outdated, though the frigate seen here is one of Russia's newest and most advanced ships.  They have sent the Admiral Grigorovich frigate from it's base in the Black Sea to Syria, to have a "presence" near the two US Destroyers.

(http://static5.businessinsider.com/image/58e7970e8af5781e008b7077-1200/undefined)
The US Navy has two older destroyers; the USS Ross, and USS Porter, in Syria.  These two ships, while older then the Russian frigate, are still more advanced and more capable in every way possible.

The Syrian Navy is not ver strong and made up of old Chinese and Russian ships.  They are no match for anything the Russians or American's have in the waters.  A single US destroyer could wipe our a major chunk of the Syrian Navy... so don't expect them to get involved.

Not sure if the news reached you wherever you are.
A truck was hijacked in Stockholm and then it sped down a busy pedestrian street and crashed into a mall 4 people plus a dog were killed one of the people was an 11 year old girl.
What's even scarier is that the police found what seem to have been a bomb in the truck, it could have exploded with the impact but luckily it didn't.

I got to thank you guys for the continued upkeep on all the news.  I feel so many people don't pay attention, so it is nice you have this here so there is at least a chance on our own site they will glance it.

This thing with North Korea is escalating fast, and is real scary.  Luckily China seems to be on our side, as is all of Europe and the other east Asian countries....  This recent thing of Kim Jung Un telling everyone to leave the capital is scary... is he just going to wipe out his own city as he goes into hiding?  Like, you have no idea with that man...

Syria is a continued problem and Russia's relations with the US and all NATO countries is a continued worry.  Russia is no position to fight, and the US certainly doesn't want to fight, nor does Europe.

This could be a massive turning point and a mark on history if North Korea falls... what happens to it?  Who gets it?  How is it paid for and how are the people "caught" up to modern times.... will there be welcoming arms from South Korea or discrimination?  So many questions we don't know.

I hope NK isn't foolish with a nuclear weapon... I can imagine him firing one at the US bound Navy strike force... or towards Seoul, or even his own country.  We really have no idea.  We are getting closer to their "Day of the Sun" celebration, which they promise we will all be in for something big.  Scary times.

What they are doing now isn't working and their open border policy (relatively open) is making matters worse.  France has a capable military, though not one I think that could fight directly ISIS.  They would still have to rely heavily on NATO.  France is strong, but not as strong as she once was, hence why they all bought into the EU stuff.

BREAKING NEWS: Attack on London Bridge Developing

This is developing and no articles out yet.  What we know is there are casualties on London Bridge and possibly London Bridge Station.  Reports say a van mowed people down, as well as reports of gunfire and stabbings.  Most likely a terrorist attack but Metro London Police have not responded yet as to what happened.

Possibly related to the terrorist attack on London Bridge.  It is very close.

Title: Re: World News
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-06-03 15:35:15
My guess is the people who used the van on London Bridge and possibly shot, then got picked up by the black Beemer as they possibly tried to escape.  London Metro PD caught up and stopped them.  Borough Market is very close to London Bridge.  <<<----- I made this up, there is no official word on it, but I am just making an educated guess.

West's lines were all recorded over six months ago, so the project may still be a go.  Dedicated to him, of course.   I wonder if they'll employ a secondary villain, like King Tut, or Chandel, or Egghead? It can't be that hard to find a good Liberace or Vincent Price sound-alike.

West voiced a part in every Batman animated series save the last one, Beware the Batman. He was also Catman on The Fairly Oddparents, though Jeff Glen Bennett has stepped into the role of late.

Number of casualties as 'van hits pedestrians' in north London (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/19/finsbury-park-number-casualties-vehicle-hits-pedestrians-seven/)

This story is developing.

A van has reportedly crashed into pedestrians outside a mosque in London causing a "number of casualties".

Officers arrested one person after they were called shortly after midnight to the incident on Seven Sisters Road, near Finsbury Park station.

Police said they were responding to a "major incident" with "a number of casualties being worked on at the scene".

Witnesses reported seeing six people on the ground.  London Ambulance Service said they had sent "a number of resources" to the incident.

US Forces shoot down Syrian aircraft for first time (http://hosted2.ap.org/APDefault/*/Article_2017-06-18-US--United%20States-Syria/id-8a92d6bae00846daa1d1bbf8ab54c719)

The U.S. military on Sunday shot down a Syrian Air Force fighter jet that bombed local forces aligned with the Americans in the fight against Islamic State militants, an action that appeared to mark a new escalation of the conflict.
The U.S. had not shot down a Syrian regime aircraft before Sunday's confrontation, said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. While the U.S. has said since it began recruiting, training and advising what it calls moderate Syrian opposition forces to fight IS that it would protect them from potential Syrian government retribution, this was the first time it resorted to engaging in air-to-air combat to make good on that promise.

Title: Re: World News
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-06-18 22:16:41
Since the beginning of Ramadan, there have been over 130 attacks of terror in the name of Islam resulting in 1,263 deaths.  These ranged from the Middle East, to the Philippines, to France and England.  To name a few, a female Israeli border guard (http://www.timesofisrael.com/friends-mourn-hadas-malka-stabbed-to-death-near-old-city-as-a-true-wonder-woman/) was carved up by terrorists with knives in a horrible death.  31 were killed in a bombing in Somolia, Islamic radicals killed 6 police officers in India, and a female suicide bomber killed a 3 year old and one other person in Cameroon.  That is just a few from this week alone.

Many of these terrorist attacks don't get news coverage, but they happen daily by radical Islamic insurgents. 

There have been no known reported terrorist attacks by any other religious group radicals in this same time frame, unless this attack turns out to be one.

The UK is boiling right now.  Just today in Birmingham as well (http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/man-who-told-churchgoers-turn-13202551), as a man walked into a church service during a Remembrance Sunday service and began abusing parishioners and telling them to convert to Islam.  Now to me, police should quickly investigate this person if they know who he is.  He seems like he might be a threat.

There are over 23,000 known people on the radical Islamic watch list in the UK according to the Scotland Yard.  That is a scary number, not to mention all the other random threats and dangerous people not even related to them.

The Telegraph is calling it a "terrorist attack (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/19/finsbury-park-number-casualties-vehicle-hits-pedestrians-seven/)."  The Islamic council of the London reporting this was an attack against Islam.  So far, they have said more then the actual news sources.  If their council is to be believed, this would make us assume this was a nutcase trying to do vigilante justice against Muslims, innocent Muslims.

And once again, THE SUN, has news that no one else reports first, just like the last several events in England.

So The Sun is reporting this person screamed, they want to "kill all Muslims (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3829809/finsbury-park-suspect-tackled-to-ground/)."  They are also saying bystanders tackled the 48 year old man.  So if The Sun is correct, again, we may have found out the source of all this.  Granted they say Buzzfeed is the source of that quote... and Buzzfeed is the queen of FAKE NEWS... so take this with a grain of salt.

Some nut job sicko trying to "make things right" by killing people of a certain group for no reason other then they are of the religion of the terrorists.

Possibly.

So according to the FBI...

"There is no single, universally accepted, definition of terrorism. Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives” (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85). "

The latest reports say this now;

"A suspected suicide bomber who allegedly shouted 'Allahu Akbar' before triggering an explosion at Brussels Central Station has been gunned down and killed by soldiers.
Shots rang out soon after 8pm on Tuesday as police and soldiers moved in to 'neutralise' the man, who was said to be 'threatening rail passengers' in what is being considered as a terrorist incident.

The attacker was not confirmed dead for several hours after being shot as medics could not approach him for fear that the explosives strapped to him could go off any second, official authorities said.

Initial reports suggested the suspect - described as being 'tanned, well-built and in his 30s' - was wearing an explosive vest or rucksack, while witnesses later claimed he tried to blow up a trolley or a suitcase."

Also didn't mention the terrorist attack yesterday in Paris, AGAIN.

A vehicle carrying two gas canisters, two handguns and one Kalashnikov collided with a police car near the Champs-Elysées in Paris around 3:40 p.m. local time today, and the incident is being investigated as an act of terror, the Paris prosecutor’s office confirmed.

The 31-year-old driver of the white Renault Mégane set his car on fire before hitting a police vehicle, with the hopes of creating an explosive impact, said French officials.

Police did not fire a single shot at the scene, but officials confirmed that the driver, who had been flagged for Islamic extremism, was badly burned and died. No injuries were reported in the incident as the explosion was limited to the inside of the driver's vehicle, police said.

Police quickly declared the situation "under control" and a bomb squad responded to the scene after explosives and a gun were found inside the driver's vehicle.

DEVELOPING: Islamic Canadian man charged in Michigan airport stabbing attack; FBI investigating as act of terrorism (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/06/21/michigan-airport-evacuated-after-an-airport-police-officer-was-reportedly-stabbed/?utm_term=.30f2a1a947d5)

A man walked up to a uniformed police officer at the Bishop International Airport in Flint, Mich., and stabbed him in the neck Wednesday morning with a large knife, according to an FBI affidavit filed in federal court.

A law enforcement officer who watched the stabbing and subdued the attacker said that the man — later identified by officials as Amor M. Ftouhi — yelled “Allahu akbar” before stabbing the officer, an FBI special agent said in the affidavit.

Ftouhi then yelled “Allah” several times after stabbing the police officer, the agent said, before saying something about killings in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. When Ftouhi was subdued by the law enforcement officer, he “asked the officer why he did not kill him,” the FBI agent stated.

Officials said Ftouhi is a 50-year-old Canadian who had entered the U.S. on June 16 in New York, then made his way to Flint.

Officials said the wounded officer is in stable condition and is expected to survive.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday evening that the stabbing was being investigated as an act of terrorism.

SOLAR ECLIPSE MONDAY

"Millions of Americans across a 70-mile-wide corridor from Oregon to South Carolina will see the sky darken as the sun disappears from view, albeit for only a few minutes at a time.

On the West Coast, the eclipse is due to start a little after 9 a.m. local time and peak about 10:15 a.m. In the central U.S., that will happen at 1:18 p.m. in St. Louis. The East Coast will see the biggest effect after 2:30 p.m.

Temperatures in the areas of the eclipse could tumble by as much as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. The chill in the air will peak about five to 20 minutes after the moon’s shadow passes by. Temperatures could take three hours to rebound across the Great Plains and East Coast, and change in temperature may be larger and take longer to recover in the West.

One thing to note is the weather in your area to fully experience the sky darkening.  The Pacific Northwest, which is often clear and sunny at this time of year, except along the coast, has a great chance to see the eclipse. People living in the inland northwest will likely have a good chance of seeing the eclipse as well with clear skies, but there could be some slight smoke lumbering south from Canadian wildfires.

Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to cross the region from Nebraska to Missouri Sunday night could linger into Monday. Southern Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee should all have good weather to see the show.

Finally, east of the Mississippi, the typical summertime pattern can be one of afternoon thunderstorms that are difficult to forecast in advance and could make viewing the eclipse that much harder. If they pop up over you, you aren’t going to see it.

North America gets another crack at a total solar eclipse in April 2024."

Thoughts and prayers to everyone in the region.  It will be a bad week for them all.  It's not the wind damage, but the water damage.  There will be flooding from Houston, to Austin, San Antonio, the entire coastline, Laredo, and into Corpus Cristi.  It is projected so far, to be very bad.  The storm will stall tonight, sort of over Port Lavaca and Victoria, then move north over there weekend, then go southward towards Laredo and then turn back to Rockport by the middle of next week.  That whole time it will be raining and have either super storm winds or hurricane force winds.  It is going to inundate this south eastern portion of Texas.

Latest model runs have changed since I first posted.  That is the problem with news articles, they get outdated, so when stuff happens, I am sure we will update it here.

Some models are now showing 50 inches of rain for areas around Rockport, Texas.  It is going to be bad.  Expected that 3.5 million will be out of power, but so far no power outages, which says a lot so far about the infrastructure.  Lots of flooding already happening along the Texas coast.  Storm surge as high as 17 feet in places already, and we are just getting started.

Title: Re: World News
Post by: RainySunshine on 2017-08-25 21:21:24
So focusing on Rockport for example, the most rain will start falling on Saturday, almost 6 inches, then as the storm moves north, expect it to drop to 4 inches of rain, and by Monday the storm will make it's way back with nearly 8 inches of rain.  Rockport is already flooded according to webcams.  Downtown is under water... so I have no idea how they will handle this. 

Victoria is going to get hit next by 1am their time. 
Title: Re: World News
Post by: MasterXtreme on 2017-08-25 21:24:05
So I am looking at the bigger city of Corpus Cristi now.  They are not getting the biggest hit and are getting offshore wind instead of onshore like some other areas.  They are not getting the biggest hit.

Because of all of this part of Texas' oil refineries, that the water and spray people will be getting hit with will taste oily and very salty.  Try not to drink it.  Very polluted oily water.  This will be an environmental disaster when we can finally see the outcome.
Title: Re: World News
Post by: RainySunshine on 2017-08-25 21:26:15
I will jump up now and look at Galveston, Texas.  Several tornado warnings.  It is currently 85 and about 11:30pm there.  While they are getting wind, it is not nearly as much.  Gusts around about 30mph.  Their biggest concern is rain bands and tornados.  Galveston and Houston especially are very prone to floods, so this will be a big concern.  Starting Saturday and Sunday, rain totals are expected to be over 8 inches each day with nonstop rain each day.  Monday will only drop to about 6 inches of rain, so still a ton.
Title: Re: World News

I should make this clear that Dallas and Fort Worth will probably not have to worry about this storm.  Current models are not showing it reaching there.  You will get some rain though.
Title: Re: World News

Austin, Texas will get heavy rain bands. Their biggest day of rain will be Saturday with over 8 inches, then it will taper off by Monday to more manageable amounts.  But rain is in their forecast till at least next Friday, all from Hurricane Harvey. 

Harvey will just be stalled over southeast Texas as their is nothing pushing or pulling it away.

San Antonio is getting some rain bands right now, but by 5am their time, they will jump to a 90% chance of rain and then the rain will start coming down all through their weekend.  Saturday and Sunday will be 8 inches of rain, but then after that, Monday is clears up some.  But rain will still be happening, but under and inch till Friday.  Of course models can change as we move on, but this is based off what we have now from the US models and Euro models. 

After the storm moves back from the south, it will sit over Rockport again.

Places on the fringes like Uvalde, Hondo, Laredo, Comfort, Hearne, and others are all going to get rain, some more then others.  Many of these places are expected to experience power issues as well, and you will get some wind.  Depending on the track of the storm some of these places may fall within the direct target of the storm.

If you are told to evacuate, you need to leave.

Expect Houston to suffer massive flooding.  9 inches of rain for Saturday.  8 for Sunday.  5 inches for Monday.  Houston metro will have rain every day till Saturday.

It shows you how insignificantly small we really are.

Thankfully, so far reports have been good in Florida.  Very premature, but no major damage around the western coast.  Structures have stayed up so far.  Good job in engineering especially after hearing islands in the Caribbean having up to 90% of the buildings on them destroyed.  American engineering advancements and good code work. 

The eastern coast of Florida, while not taking a direct hit, has so far been much worse in terms of structures standing, but it is still too early to report all.  We know at least one construction crane fell down.

Reports that over 80% of structures have been destroyed in the British Virgin Islands.  The British are sending 500 Royal troops to help with the recovery.  So far we know of 4 deaths on their islands.  They are also being warned of Hurricane Jose which is coming next.

Some imagery of the US Virgin Islands.  Note that hurricane Irma hit these islands as a Category 5.  US Customs and Border Protection is currently helping people there and the first forces to help with recovery.  US Military and Navy is supposedly there too now.

NEWS UPDATE.

Hurricane Irma's core is breaking apart but the eye is still to the east.  The storm is also tracking east away from the western coast and going into Florida's inland.  It is going towards Sebring and Orlando and now away from Sarasota and Tampa.  The hurricane has been downgraded to category 2.

Still the worst damage is in eastern Florida, even though the bulk of the storm hit on the western coast by Naples.

Post by: MasterXtreme on 2017-09-10 17:49:28
Night has fallen upon the east coast.  Lots of rain and wind. The storm has tracked more west again and is along the western coast.  Currently over Melbourne with a tornado watch over the city.  Storm has sustained as a category 2. Now aiming back towards Tampa, which should see historic levels of storm surge. 

Off in the Atlantic is Hurricane Jose which is currently a category 3 which is being monitored.

A reported 3.3 million are without power in Southern Florida.  Reports of very little damage so far on the west coast of Florida.  Only known issue so far is a roof of a business that buckled.  Eastern coast of Florida, and around Miami we are told is much worse, even though the storm didn't directly hit them like the west coast.  Still no word on the Key West.
Title: Re: World News

This hurricane will probably downgrade by tomorrow morning Florida time.  Reports of at least four deaths so far. 

We are lucky the storm wavered and went inland instead of keeping it's fuel source in ocean water.
Title: Re: World News
Post by: MasterXtreme on 2017-09-10 21:18:42
I will do one more update for the day.  Just after midnight in Florida as Hurricane Irma is now a category 2 moving north at a much slower 14mph.  Winds are still in the 100mph range but it will continue to decline throughout the night and into the morning.  The big thing these coastal areas have to worry about on both the west and east side of Florida is the storm surge.  Many of these areas are low lying, and it doesn't take much surge to cause flooding.

The storm will go east past Tampa and west of Orlando slightly based on our latest models.  It will shift to a category one story somewhere near Gainesville as it heads towards Tallahassee and then downgrades again to a tropical storm in Georgia.

Tropical storm warning is in effect for all of northern Georgia and eastern Alabama and around Charleston.  Hurricane warning goes about as far north as Albany, Georgia.  When it hits tropical storm stage, winds will still be in the 40mph to 100mph.

UPDATE: Got some unfortunate news.  Watching the live coverage of the shooting near Spokane, Washington.  It is at a high school out in the countryside, all farmland, and tiny towns.  So it is very unexpected.

The local Spokane County Sheriff's Office just had a press conference stating that three children were taken to the hospital in serious condition but said they will be okay.  The bad news is, we were also told ONE student has died.  We don't know much else and the sheriff said he would have a bigger press conference at 12:15am Pacific time.

A shooter is in custody and we don't know their age.

That is accurate.  An unofficial news outlet for ISIS said that ISIS took responsibility for it.  But we don't know much beyond that at this point.  Police are still investigating this horrible spawn of Satan.

What about this dame he's been keeping company with? Just a roommate, a friend, or something more?  And why is ISIS claiming him?  Not trying to be ethnically insensitive, but a guy who doesn't fit most profiles of a terrorist, who has been keeping company lately with a mysterious mixed-race woman... well, I'm just saying he wouldn't be the first old goat to get led astray by a pretty young thing who puts weird ideas in his head, except usually they just get a butt tattoo or a nipple ring, not go out and shoot and kill an assload of people.

The only good thing is this sicko who did this will hopefully have the worst existence for the rest of their life.  I hope they suffer to the fullest extent of suffering.  They will want to be dead, but will teeter on the edge of life the rest of their days.  I hope we find out there motive, then they deserve a horrible existence.

Learning some information about the event and who the shooter was.  I am not going to post their name, but if you want to see their picture and name, click the link (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5052163/Up-27-shot-Texas-church-gunman-opens-fire.html).

"The gunman walked into the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, dressed in black, tactical gear with a ballistics belt and an assault rifle, and began shooting, according to local law enforcement sources.

The attack only stopped when the shooter was tackled by a heroic local man.

The shooter, of New Braunfels, a suburb of San Antonio, fled in his SUV but crashed near state lines and was killed after a brief foot chase into Guadalupe County, according Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office spokesman."

No one is safe, now that women feel empowered on this issue, they will be coming out and getting every single man that has wronged them in some way, no matter how big or small.

Clearly this is good, but it is also bad.  Claims, whether true or false, will always ruin the reputation of the person who is accused.

I think it goes deeper than that... the libturds are having a collective tantrum over Hillary's loss in 2006 and have adapted a scorched earth policy on its "business as usual" attitude towards sexual harassment.  They'll throw a few of its own in the winnowing machine-- Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer --if it'll get them Trump's head on a pike. I've noticed this attitude growing steadily within the progressive movement for the last couple years, but I never thought it would get to the point where they started to cannibalize themselves.  While it is nice to see them cleaning house, It doesn't bode well for the men of my generation, who never really learned any better way of dealing with women and now are being forced to adapt to greatly-changing attitudes towards sex.  Everything we learned was a lie.  We're dealing with whole new social mores we simply aren't equipped to understand.

Oh no!  :'(  I am so sad to read about this.  I hope there won't be any more lives lost and that medical officials can save these poor people on what should have been a grand day for a new rail line!  So much promise and money went into this and it failed.  There will definitely be hell to pay and lawsuits, but I hope there can be peace as the heat of the emergency is still going on.

My prayers go out to all these people and I hope the community and families can heal.  This is devastating news, and right before Christmas.  I wish them the absolute best and my heart goes out to them.

Post by: Kiwi on 2017-12-18 13:48:17
I think we have a tendency to think that this is someplace else and doesn't happen to me.  But that just isn't the case, this can happen everywhere.  In a part of the country were rail service isn't a big deal like out on the eastern seaboard, this is a HUGE deal.  Rail is considered one of the absolute safest ways to travel, especially out in that part of the country.  So for this to happen to average people on their way to work, enjoying vacations, or going to see family for Christmas, this is absolutely devastating and it shows it can happen ANYWHERE.  These were people going about their daily lives, and excited to be on this new train and new rail line.  I can't express how sad I am from this.  I mean it when I saw I wish them all the best and my prayers to them all.  Thoughts don't do crap.  So you're thinking of someone?  Wow, a lot of good that does.  Actions need to be taken as does comfort. 

I guess I am trying to say I am thankful it wasn't us, but also realize this can happen truly anywhere and not to take life for granted.  This is the last place you'd expect a disaster like this on a brand new train, but no place is immune.  Prayers to the people.

Post by: FoxTail on 2017-12-18 13:50:21
Exactly right.  Just going about life and enjoying a beautiful new train.  The last thing you would expect is a disaster like this.  It is so sad, especially since the local news was there talking to the people and videotaping the train leave for the first time.  ALL the people they videotaped, were either injured or killed.  This was just a few hours before this incident, and they took a tour inside the new train.  It is just an absolutely eerie thing and makes the pit of your soul have a chill.

As for the people and first responders involved in this crisis, I wish them the very best.  I pray for their safety and well being and pray for the people involved.

Too many people just ignore and try to blissfully live their life ignoring what is happening around them.  It only hurts them in the end. 

I wish there was a way to help the people in this situation.  Maybe it is my Christmas charity hitting me, but there should be a fund to help those involved.  There probably will be by days end.

Looking through the various news links posted, I read that some of the first people who responded were motorists driving on the freeway.  People ran out of their cars and pulled people out of the train, and providing life saving procedures on people.  If those people didn't step in, it could have been far worse.  They helped bridged the gap till emergency services arrives.  God bless those people too who worked together to help brethren in need.

I cannot imagine how scary that must have been in Hawaii.  First of all to get a message that a missile is headed towards you.... then to get an update nearly 40 minutes later saying it isn't true.  Who would you believe?  Would you maybe think the gov is trying to calm you even though something may truly be headed to you?  Talk about a scary few hours.

Does that mean he paints images of sperm in the background of every painting, as sort of a dirty "Easter egg", or that he actually jerks off into the paint?  I mean, I know good art is personal, and an artist should put a little bit of himself into everything he creates, but, uh, damn....   :-0

I hope you can program it not to harm household members.

Title: Stephen Hawking 76, dead
Post by: NostradamusTheSeer on 2018-03-15 14:01:59
Famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking was found dead in his home on Mar 14.   He was 76. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Hawking).

Hawking is truly an interesting case.  A man who, when he was diagnosed with ALS (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's disease) over 50 years ago, was given a mere two years to live, went on to become perhaps the most celebrated scientist in the world, Hawking truly defied all odds.  His research was championed by progressives, who ironically would have been all too happy to abort him in the womb if they could.  It was only because the man was educated at a prestigious university-- University College, Oxford, England--and could "do math good" that his recklessness, lazy work ethic, and toxic personality was even tolerated. If Hawking had attended whatever the British equivalent of our community/state universities are here in America, he would have had a much harder time of it-- shunned and despised by all, viciously mocked and hazed by his peers, lied to constantly, eventually forced out of school, and likely ended up just another burden on the already-overtaxed European welfare state. He would have died broken and in obscurity in some filthy counsel hovel or overcrowded, understaffed group home, because he would not have had what the left calls a "quality of life" (a nonsensical pseudo-intellectual phrase these morons throw around routinely like "theory of mind" or "global climate change").

Instead the celebrated professor went on to lecture and publish a number of books expanding our knowledge on black holes, the existence of the Higgs boson (admittedly one of his few blunders), the question of life on other worlds, exploring the fabric of the universe and the nature of space-time, and even lent his voice to The Simpsons and made several appearances on The Big Bang Theory.

So has anyone heard the radio promos for the new film Chappaquiddick, about Ted Kennedy and the curious case of Mary Jo Kopechne, set for theatrical release in a couple weeks? The  ads warn audiences the film contains "strong language, graphic imagery and... historical smoking".  I'm sorry, is this really a thing? Are cigarettes so terrible and shocking that people have to be warned beforehand that they might see folks enjoy a smoke?  "Historical" smoking? Okay, yeah, in those bygone halcyon days you could light up in an office or a police station or, hey, even in your own living room without someone wanting to pillory you, but, c'mon.  Historical? Every other old detective show on late-night cable TV show has the gumshoe, first thing, either offer the client a cigarette or having one himself. Columbo would look positively naked without a cigar in his mouth.  Mannix, Bannacek, Peter Gunn, Perry Mason-- all of them smoked, I think.  I never heard anyone make much of that fact before. A filthy habit, to be sure, but historical?  In the words of my hero Mad Max (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efDA9g2oQBk), "My big ol' butt!"

So has anyone heard the radio promos for the new film Chappaquiddick, about Ted Kennedy and the curious case of Mary Jo Kopechne, set for theatrical release in a couple weeks? The  ads warn audiences the film contains "strong language, graphic imagery and... historical smoking".  I'm sorry, is this really a thing? Are cigarettes so terrible and shocking that people have to be warned beforehand that they might see folks enjoy a smoke?  "Historical" smoking? Okay, yeah, in those bygone halcyon days you could light up in an office or a police station or, hey, even in your own living room without someone wanting to pillory you, but, c'mon.  Historical? Every other old detective show on late-night cable TV show has the gumshoe, first thing, either offer the client a cigarette or having one himself. Columbo would look positively naked without a cigar in his mouth.  Mannix, Bannacek, Peter Gunn, Perry Mason-- all of them smoked, I think.  I never heard anyone make much of that fact before. A filthy habit, to be sure, but historical?  In the words of my hero Mad Max (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efDA9g2oQBk), "My big ol' butt!" Like it's really going to advance the story to see all the President's men puffing away in the danger room.  I think someone lost sight of the point, which is the premise of the narrative:  Teddy's handlers trying to spin away the fact that Jack and Bobby's drunken lout of a brother just drowned a girl in his car. Smoking? Historical?  Please!  I never heard anyone confuse Ironside with a documentary about disability advocacy in the workplace, or I Love Lucy for a show about the plight of Cuban immigrants who marry whiny show-crashing redheads for green-card immunity.  What next,  a content warning about "historical drinking" for any film where alcohol is consumed? Pray they don't do a bio-pic about Ulysses S. Grant-- he was reputed to drink so much they could've floated the Monitor and the Merrimack on a sea of his swollen liver.

I heard the historical smoking thing too and laughed.  The ads on tv are interesting.  Certainly a film the Kennedy's don't want out.  Maybe some younger people will learn who the Kennedy's really are...

 I suppose... but remember (if you're old enough, that is) that 30 years ago, that's what the said about the Berlin Wall... now, some of Germany's older citizens kind of miss the way things were (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostalgie). I mean, what if, tomorrow, the powers that be were to sit down, sign a paper, and, with that bold stroke, ended over 70 years of aggression?  North and South Korea magically unify, and then-- dot, dot, dot.   Can China and South Korea's economies withstand the influx of people newly freed from the yoke of communist oppression and the demands they will make on resources, like jobs, food, and living space?   Frankly, people who haven't known much in their lives are very likely to lose their damn minds when confronted with all the new freedoms an open market offers, and act with all the grace of a rural farm boy (or girl) who's led a sheltered upbringing for 18 years and has now just made their way to spring break in some hedonistic, booze- and casual sex-fueled party spot.  In short, not pretty.

If North and South Korea magically unify, and then-- dot, dot, dot.   Can China and South Korea's economies withstand the influx of people newly freed from the yoke of communist oppression and the demands they will make on resources, like jobs, food, and living space? 

And that is a continuing question as to how that will be done.  Obviously, the more the US is involved, the more our interests will be met.  Certainly China will want to have their interests met as well as Russia.  But what is good for the US is good for South Korea and Japan.  China isn't too fond of South Korea or Japan, so they will definitely want to find ways to control North Korea to a degree if the unify.  Right now NK is China's buffer of protection...

(Banners put up around Israel.)

Israel on Sunday kicked off festivities to celebrate the opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.  Addressing the crowd Sunday evening, Netanyahu said Israelis would be “eternally grateful” for Trump’s decision on Jerusalem.

News Link (https://apnews.com/3ca11c28306c4a4f8636696566f3e0b3/Israel-prepares-for-opening-of-US-Embassy-in-Jerusalem)

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas halted ties with the Trump administration and declared it unfit to remain in its role as the sole mediator in peace talks.
Netanyahu, who frequently clashed with President Barack Obama, has found a welcome partner in Trump. The new administration has lined up solidly behind Netanyahu in his dealings with the Palestinians and delighted him last week when it withdrew from the international nuclear deal with Iran, Obama’s top foreign policy achievement/blunder.

Kimg Jong Un's presidential motorcade had his security detailing running along side his car.  His limousine was escorted by 12 men in black suits, when it was leaving the St. Regis Hotel at 6:22 p.m. Sunday for a meeting with Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. Five stood on each side of the limousine and two behind before they started running along with the car in perfect formation.

Interesting.... Dennis Rodman was interviewed on CNN crying and wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.  He was saying how happy he was this moment has finally come and that the world should be happy that progress is being made.  He also slammed former President Obama for not ever trying to talk with North Korea.

"Five years ago, Rodman said, Kim told Rodman "certain things" to relay to Obama concerning potential negotiations, but the former president "didn't even give me the time of day -- he just brushed me off, but that didn't deter me.""

30 Years After Global Warming "Announced As Science," Here is The Actual Outcome (https://www.wsj.com/articles/thirty-years-on-how-well-do-global-warming-predictions-stand-up-1529623442).

James E. Hansen wiped sweat from his brow. Outside it was a record-high 98 degrees on June 23, 1988, as the NASA scientist testified before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources during a prolonged heat wave, which he decided to cast as a climate event of cosmic significance. He expressed to the senators his “high degree of confidence” in “a cause-and-effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and observed warming.”

With that testimony and an accompanying paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Mr. Hansen lit the bonfire of the greenhouse vanities, igniting a world-wide debate that continues today about the energy structure of the entire planet. President Obama’s environmental policies were predicated on similar models of rapid, high-cost warming. But the 30th anniversary of Mr. Hansen’s predictions affords an opportunity to see how well his forecasts have done—and to reconsider environmental policy accordingly.

Mr. Hansen’s testimony described three possible scenarios for the future of carbon dioxide emissions. He called Scenario A “business as usual,” as it maintained the accelerating emissions growth typical of the 1970s and ’80s. This scenario predicted the earth would warm 1 degree Celsius by 2018. Scenario B set emissions lower, rising at the same rate today as in 1988. Mr. Hansen called this outcome the “most plausible,” and predicted it would lead to about 0.7 degree of warming by this year. He added a final projection, Scenario C, which he deemed highly unlikely: constant emissions beginning in 2000. In that forecast, temperatures would rise a few tenths of a degree before flatlining after 2000.

Thirty years of data have been collected since Mr. Hansen outlined his scenarios—enough to determine which was closest to reality. And the winner is Scenario C. Global surface temperature has not increased significantly since 2000, discounting the larger-than-usual El Niño of 2015-16. Assessed by Mr. Hansen’s model, surface temperatures are behaving as if we had capped 18 years ago the carbon-dioxide emissions responsible for the enhanced greenhouse effect. But we didn’t. And it isn’t just Mr. Hansen who got it wrong. Models devised by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have, on average, predicted about twice as much warming as has been observed since global satellite temperature monitoring began 40 years ago.


What about Mr. Hansen’s other claims? Outside the warming models, his only explicit claim in the testimony was that the late ’80s and ’90s would see “greater than average warming in the southeast U.S. and the Midwest.” No such spike has been measured in these regions.

As observed temperatures diverged over the years from his predictions, Mr. Hansen doubled down. In a 2007 case on auto emissions, he stated in his deposition that most of Greenland’s ice would soon melt, raising sea levels 23 feet over the course of 100 years. Subsequent research published in Nature magazine on the history of Greenland’s ice cap demonstrated this to be impossible. Much of Greenland’s surface melts every summer, meaning rapid melting might reasonably be expected to occur in a dramatically warming world. But not in the one we live in. The Nature study found only modest ice loss after 6,000 years of much warmer temperatures than human activity could ever sustain.

Several more of Mr. Hansen’s predictions can now be judged by history. Have hurricanes gotten stronger, as Mr. Hansen predicted in a 2016 study? No. Satellite data from 1970 onward shows no evidence of this in relation to global surface temperature. Have storms caused increasing amounts of damage in the U.S.? Data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show no such increase in damage, measured as a percentage of gross domestic product. How about stronger tornadoes? The opposite may be true, as NOAA data offers some evidence of a decline. The list of what didn’t happen is long and tedious.

The problem with Mr. Hansen’s models—and the U.N.’s—is that they don’t consider more-precise measures of how aerosol emissions counter warming caused by greenhouse gases. Several newer climate models account for this trend and routinely project about half the warming predicted by U.N. models, placing their numbers much closer to observed temperatures. The most recent of these was published in April by Nic Lewis and Judith Curry in the Journal of Climate, a reliably mainstream journal.

These corrected climate predictions raise a crucial question: Why should people world-wide pay drastic costs to cut emissions when the global temperature is acting as if those cuts have already been made?

On the 30th anniversary of Mr. Hansen’s galvanizing testimony, it’s time to acknowledge that the rapid warming he predicted isn’t happening. Climate researchers and policy makers should adopt the more modest forecasts that are consistent with observed temperatures.

That would be a lukewarm policy, consistent with a lukewarming planet.
