Dinosaur tongues, new research "IndyWatch Feed National"

This 2017 video is called How to Sculpt a Dinosaur Part 2 Eyes, Teeth, Tongue & Skin Texture PREVIEW.

From the University of Texas at Austin in the USA:

T. Rex couldnt stick out its tongue

June 20, 2018

Dinosaurs are often depicted as fierce creatures, baring their teeth, with tongues wildly stretching from their mouths like giant, deranged lizards. But new research reveals a major problem with this classic image: Dinosaurs couldnt stick out their tongues like lizards. Instead, their tongues were probably rooted to the bottoms of their mouths in a manner akin to alligators.

Researchers from The University of Texas at Austin and the Chinese Academy of Sciences made the discovery by comparing the hyoid bones the bones that support and ground the tongue of modern birds and crocodiles with those of their extinct dinosaur relatives. In addition to challenging depictions of dino tongues, the research proposes a connection on the origin of flight and an increase in tongue diversity and mobility.

The research was published June 20 in the journal PLOS ONE.

Tongues are often overlooked. But, they offer key insights into the lifestyles of extinct animals, said lead author Zhiheng Li, an associate professor at the Key Laboratory of Vertebrate Evolution and Human Origins of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.He conducted the work while earning his Ph.D. at the UT Jackson School of Geosciences.

Is a War With China on the Horizon? "IndyWatch Feed National"

On May 30th, Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced a momentous shift in American global strategic policy. From now on, he decreed, the U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM), which oversees all U.S. military forces in Asia, will be called the Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM). The name change, Mattis explained, reflects the increasing connectivity between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, as well as Washingtons determination to remain the dominant power in both.

What? You didnt hear about this anywhere? And even now, youre not exactly blown away, right? Well, such a name change may not sound like much, but someday you may look back and realize that it couldnt have been more consequential or ominous.  Think of it as a signal that the U.S. military is already setting the stage for an eventual confrontation with China.

If, until now, you hadnt read about Mattiss decision anywhere, Im not surprised since the media gave it virtually no attention less certainly than would have been accorded the least significant tweet Donald Trump ever dispatched.  What coverage it did receive treated the name change as no more than a passing symbolic gesture, a Pentagon ploy to encourage India to join Japan, Australia, and other U.S. allies in Americas Pacific alliance system. In Symbolic Nod to India, U.S. Pacific Command Changes Name was the headline of a Reuters story on the subject and, to the extent that any attention was paid, it was typical.

That the medias military analysts failed to notice anything more than symbolism in the deep-sixing of PACOM shouldnt be surprising, given all the attention being paid to other major international developments the pyrotechnics of the Korean summit in Singapore, the insults traded at and after the G7 meeting in Canada, or the ominous gathering storm over Iran.  Add to this the poor grasp so many journalists have of the nature of the U.S. militarys strategic thinking.  Still, Mattis himself has not been shy about the geopolitical significance of linking the Indian and Pacific Oceans in such planning.  In fact, it represents a fundamental shift in U.S. military thinking with potentially far-reaching consequences.

Consider the backdrop to the name change: in recent months, the U.S. has stepped up its naval patrols in waters adjacent to Chinese-occupied islands in the South China Sea (as has China), raising the prospect of future clashes between the warships of the two countries. Such moves have been accompanied by ever more threatening language from t...

US Congressional Members Ordered to Disclose Crypto Holdings "IndyWatch Feed National"

The House Ethics Committee has informed all US Congress members that they must disclose any investment worth more than $1,000 as of June, 18. All lawmakers on Capitol Hill make an annual financial disclosure but a new memo has informed them that any cryptocurrency purchase or sale that exceeds $1,000 must be reported within 45 days.

Congress Must Disclose Digital Holdings

Cryptocurrency, and its most well known token Bitcoin, came to be as a means to disrupt the global banking system. Many of those who initially embraced it were distrustful of the government and saw using the fiat alternative as a way to keep control of their own finances without federal interference. As its popularity rose and then exploded in late 2017 people from all walks of life were pulled into the investment craze.

This new memo from the Ethics Committee means that the public will know if their member of Congress is trading in digital assets, even as regulatory rulings over their status are still being debated. Some see the decision as a way to protect against future conflicts of interest, as when voting occurs on any bill that may affect the way cryptocurrency is officially seen by federal regulatory bodies.

Representatives elected to Congress, and their staff have been required to disclose personal assets for decades, including real estate and investments. In 2012 that was tightened further to include a full disclosure of any holdings in stocks, bonds or derivatives by members of Congress or their family members. Now as investments in digital assets such as Bitcoin become more popular questions of how they should be reported have arisen since, in many cases, they remain unregulated and undefined by the federal government.

The recent memo from the House Ethics committee also included guidelines on crypto related side jobs. Members of Congress are limited to earning $28,050 from employment apart from their work in the house. The memo has informed them that this cap includes crypto mining.

Australia was First

This memo from the US House of Congress follows a similar demand for disclosure in the Australian Parliament. The register of....

South China Sea: Latest Books "IndyWatch Feed National"

.

Two recent books offer a helpful guide to Southeast Asias most complex maritime dispute.Asian Waters: The Struggle Over the South China Sea & the Strategy of Chinese Expansionby Humphrey HawksleyOverlook Press, 2018, 304 pp., $29.95

Great Powers, Grand Strategies: The New Great Game in the South China Sea

edited by Anders Corr

Naval Institute Press, 2018, 336 pp., $34.95

Asian Waters, the new book by veteran Asia journalist Humphrey Hawksley, recently became my ideal travel companion on a long flight to Australia, en route to the South China Sea. For any other reader hoping to navigate those troubled waters, or seeking a broad overview of the geopolitical fault lines in Asia, Hawksleys book provides an excellent guide.

The books journey can admittedly be a digressive one, at times wading way beyond Asian waters and far onto shore. Hawksleys book touches on North Koreas illicit nuclear program and much else besides. One chapter describes Indias stunted development, recounting in gruesome detail the slavery-like conditions in its brick kilns. Another chapter on Vietnam finds Hawksley meandering into an argument as to why, in the late 1970s, Vietnam was unnecessarily constrained by Cold War logic from taming the bloody Khmer Rouge in neighboring Cambodia. Such stories are certainly intriguing, flowing from Hawksleys decades of first-hand reporting from the region.

Hawksley notes how the announcement of the U.S. pivot to Asia led to a rapid expansion of Chinese activity in the South China Sea, from the deft takeover of Scarborough Shoal close to the Philippines to the rapid move of a Chinese state-controlled oil rig into disputed areas with Vietnam. In t...

No-one should pretend such behaviour was anything other than vile. At the same time, its important to recognise just how much of the conceptual apparatus we now possess to understand sexual abuse owes to the liberation struggles that Devine, Power and co so loathe.

End routine strip searching of women Australia told at UN "IndyWatch Feed National"

Australian governments should end the routine strip searching of women in prison the Human Rights Law Centre has told the UN Human Rights Council in a statement delivered in Geneva overnight.

The statement responds to a major report on the situation in Australia, delivered by the UN expert on violence against women. Her report raises a number of concerns about womens imprisonment, including "excessive incarceration, prison overcrowding, strip-searching, solitary confinement [and] lack of alternatives to custodial sentences".

The report finds that "imprisoned women have commonly experienced domestic violence and sexual assault" and concludes that "the continued practice of strip-searching women within prisons exacerbates this trauma".

Australian governments are imprisoning women, and in particular Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, at record rates. Vickie Roach, an Indigenous advocate and former prisoner, said that governments need to respect womens dignity, not take it away

"We should be helping women to heal, not harming them further. What earthly purpose do strip searches serve other than to degrade and humiliate and assert control over our bodies, our naked bodies?" said Ms Roach.

Ruth Barson, Director of Legal Advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, said that routine strip searches are an archaic and humiliating, yet everyday practice for thousands of women behind bars in Australia.

"Being forced to remove every last item of clothing in front of two prison guards again and again, strips women of dignity and hope. Australian Governments can and should end this degrading practice today."

Across Australia, strip searches are conducted on a regular and routine basis, including upon entry to the prison, when family or friends visit, when leaving the prison to see a doctor, or to attend court.

"When a mother wants to hug her visiting child; when a pregnant woman has a check-up with her doctor; when a woman has to attend court she is subjected to a damaging strip search. There are far less intrusive scanning technologies that governments could choose to use right now to spare women this harm," said Ms Barson.

The UK and the ACT have both changed their prison policies and adopted less invasive methods, such as pat-downs, scanners and x-rays.

This is the Australian Governments second session as a newly elected member of the Human Rights Council. The Government was elected to the Council last year on a promise to uphold womens and Indigenous peoples rights.

In its incoming pledge to the Council, the Australian Government promise...

Bright spiral galaxy NGC 3169 appears to be unraveling in this cosmic scene, played out some 70 million light-years away just below bright star Regulus toward the faint constellation Sextans. Its beautiful spiral arms are distorted into sweeping tidal tails as NGC 3169 (left) and neighboring NGC 3166 interact gravitationally, a common fate even for bright galaxies in the local universe. In fact, drawn out stellar arcs and plumes, indications of gravitational interactions, seem rampant in the deep and colorful galaxy group photo.

The picture spans 20 arc minutes, or about 400,000 light-years at the group's estimated distance, and includes smaller, dimmer NGC 3165 at the right. NGC 3169 is also known to shine across the spectrum from radio to X-rays, harboring an active galactic nucleus that is likely the site of a supermassive black hole.

Court coal mine decision reveals failure on climate change "IndyWatch Feed National"

Stock images of coal in the Hunter Valley region, Tuesday, July. 15, 2014. AAP Image/Nikki Short.

A Court decision has exposed serious flaws in NSW planning laws. The Courts finding is that the States planning laws do not require decision makers to consider the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework and Australias status as a signatory to the Paris Agreement when considering the approval of coal mining projects in NSW.

The Land and Environment Court has upheld the NSW Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) decision to approve the extension to Wilpinjong open-cut coal mine near Wollar in the Hunter Valley, despite a challenge on climate change grounds from the Wollar Progress Association, represented by the Environmental Defenders Office (EDONSW).

EDO NSW argued in a February 2018 hearing that the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework and the Commonwealth Governments commitment to the Paris Agreement were relevant policies that the PAC was required but failed to have regard to when considering the downstream greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of coal from Wilpinjong, a substantial proportion of which will be burnt at Bayswater Power Station in NSW.

In light of the finding, EDO NSW CEO David Morris emphasised the need for reform:

This is certainly not the judgement that we, or our clients, wanted. But perhaps its the judgement we needed. We now know that aspirational policy statements, like those contained in the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework, fail to have any meaningful application to NSW mine approvals. Its these approvals and the coal which is consequently mined and burned that represent NSWs greatest contribution to global climate change. The Government can no longer claim, or proceed under the illusion, that their policies on climate change have an on-ground effect. They dont the Courts judgement shows they are merely words that do not translate to action.

This decision adds weight to the need for law reform to make climate change a critical factor in determinations about projects which will contribute to it. This...

TPP-11 could harm software licensing, says Open Source Industry Australia "IndyWatch Feed National"

June 21, 2018: Open Source Industry Australia (OSIA) has warned in a Techdirt article that the TPP-11 chapter on e-commerce may damage or destroy the free software licensing sector. OSIA is worried about Article 14.17 of the TPP-11 agreement, which provides that No Party shall require the transfer of, or access to, source code of software owned by a person of another Party, as a condition for the import, distribution, sale or use of such software, or of products containing such software, in its territory.

In its submission to the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade, OSIA wrote:

Article 14.17 of CPTPP [TPP-11] prohibits requirements for transfer or access to the source code of computer software. Whilst it does contain some exceptions, those are very narrow and appear rather carelessly worded in places. The exception that has OSIA up in arms covers "the inclusion of terms and conditions related to the provision of source code in commercially negotiated contracts". If Australia ratifies CPTPP, much will turn on whether the Courts interpret the term "commercially negotiated contracts" as including FOSS licences all the time, some of the time or none of the time.

If the Australian courts rule that open source licenses are not "commercially negotiated contracts", those licences will no longer be enforceable in Australia, and free software as we know it will probably no longer exist there. Even if the courts rule that free software licenses are indeed "commercially negotiated contracts", there is another problem, OSIA said:

The wording of Art. 14.17 makes it unclear whether authors could still seek injunctions to enforce compliance with licence terms requiring transfer of source code in cases where their copyright has been infringed.

Without the ability to enforce compliance through the use of injunctions, open source licenses would once again be pointless. Although OSIA is concerned about free software in Australia, the same logic would apply to any TPP-11 country. It would also impact other nations if they joined the TPP-11 later. In other words, the impact of this section on open source globally could be significant.

OSIA says that the problematic clauses grew out of concerns that nations like ...

Subversive in Suburbia "IndyWatch Feed National"

I have been so very slack in checking in and reading others' blogs I feel I owe you an apology.
So let's talk about poo.
Not my poo, or your poo (although we can discuss your poo if you really feel you need to share) but my furbabies poo.
My life is boring.
It consists of rolling out of bed (and I do literally roll off my lonely and virtuous chaise lounge IF my back allows it) to do.....sweet Fanny Adams.
The first job of the day is to throw enough medication down my gullet to drown out the anxiety, chronic back pain et el, then do Pooper Scooper duty.
Or, as I call it, "Landmine Duty".
Collect the furbabies contributions to the environment.
Someone, somewhere must have told Treacle that it was a game of hide & seek, to which she promised,
"Challenge accepted."
She deposits her little treats in 3 blobs; 2 together and 1 apart so I have to carefully bend down (pyjama-ed arse in the air, such a vision of loveliness for the neighbours!) and scan in a radius for the lone poo, hoping like hell I'm not standing on it.
Pip, on the other hand, produces a lovely art installation all in one pile.
Leo aka Fluff Bum the cat is another matter.
He insists that the bathroom is his bedroom and Goddess forbid that any damn human has a shower when he wishes to do the dirty.
Cos he hates an audience.
Damn Diva.
I never thought I could describe a cat "angrily" pooping but yesterday, while I so thoughtlessly had a shower, he was nagging at me to hurry up (shades of Bill Steamshovel from Mr Squiggle for us oldies) before he began shooting poo pellets like bullets with a 100 mile Care Bear Stare of Doom on his face.
You think Grumpy Cat looks grumpy?
Nup, Leo could give Julie Bishop a run for her money AND make her cry.
And then, after all this jocularity, I park my arse on the couch in front of the idiot box and crochet for remote Indigenous communities.
There are only so much rubbish TV and crochet projects that can keep me from being besieged by ennui.
I need to get out of my own head and start giving back.
So, I have started a Sharing Table in my driveway, along the lines of the Food Is Free project.
Currently we are missing the actual table (small detail, hubby's working on one we saved from Hard Rubbish) but there are baskets filled with our home grown mandarins, tangelos and limes out the front with signs for peeps to help themselves, even supplied with those horrid single use shopping bags for them to put the fruit in.

Market Talk- June 20, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed National"

Good to see a healthy rebound in todays Asian markets with strong performances across the board. It still appears however, that the market is not that confident that the US and China have settled for the moment as the Shanghai bounced just +0.3% and Hang Seng +0.75%. It was a different storey for countries with floating exchange rates, as we watched both Australia and Japan rebound over 1%. Obviously, currencies continued to suffer with the A$ and Yen both off 0.5% over the past couple of days. They tried desperately to halt the INRs decline, only ti close mid range at 68.10 today. Having seen 68.185 at its weakest, many comment that trading with a 68 handle is already a cause for concern. On a brighter note however, core Asian indices all closed at or near their highs, providing confidence ahead of the OPEC uncertainty.

The same could not be said for Europe, as many indices closed near the days lows. Having run-up on the back of a strong Asian session, many had expected Europe to continue especially as DOW futures had triple digit gains. However, as the Euro and GBP traded weaker confidence started to wane especially when US data released less than impressive. Sterling found a little interest late in the day after UK PM Theresa May won a parliamentary decision which should strengthen her hand in BREXIT negotiations. However, the rally only took it up to test 1.32 handle but was rejected by the close.

In the US it was the Russell and NASDAQ again that took the honours. Both core indices closed up around +0.75% on the day and setting a new record for the NASDAQ. The large caps DOW found it difficult to get into its stride today, playing between positive and negative it finally closed a touch lower in the indecision. The NASDAQ and S+P both hits their days high mid afternoon, but could hold-on into the close. Still lots to play for this week, but next will be interesting as we close the week, month, quarter and half year next Friday.

Japan +0.04%, US 2s closed 2.56% (+1bp), 10s closed 2.94% (+5bp), 30s 3.07% (+4bp), Bund 0.37% (u/c), France 0.71% (+1bp), Italy 2.54% (-1bp), Greece 4.30% (-1bp), Portugal 1.73% (+1bp), Spain 1.23% (u/c), Turkey 16.18% (+5bp) and Gilts 1.29% (+1bp).

Turnbull tax cuts and the ressurection of neoliberalism "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Adam Carlton

Thanks mainly to the about face by formally Xenophon Senators, now known as the Centre Alliance, the governments intended $143 billion tax cut is set to get through.

The whole thing is a major con, designed to create the illusion that the government was handing out money to the average Australian, but really using this as a smokescreen to take much more.

By having initially joined the opposition to these cuts, the Centre Alliance showed that it knows this. The said so. Especially when they are given to the those enjoying being in the top 20 percent of incomes. This is why they objected to the Third Stage, which hands them  a windfall. But after backroom talks they come out agreeing to stifle debate and not pursue their own objections. This sets up the Alliance to being accused of being corrupted.

Pauline Hanson has achieved an even more spectacular back flip, from vocal opposition to an enthusiastic supporter.

Turnbull and his ministers have rehashed the old trickle down argument, by arguing that this will lead to a rise in income for all.

Unions disagree. They are saying that the evidence of advanced economies over 10 years, shows  tax cuts have not generally led to growth in wages. A paper released by the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), reveals that OECD data  spanning 2003 to 2016, reveals a disconnection at best and an opposite relationship at worst, between tax cuts and wages growth.

Research by the Australia Institute shows that the top 20 percent of incomes will get 95 percent of the benefit in money terms. In addition, almost wiping out what is left of the progressive nature of the Australian income tax system, will send even more of the benefit upwards. A progressive tax system, is one where those on higher incomes pay a higher proportion, and through this, a portion of national income is redistributed downwards.

Greater inequality is  inevitable. Not only because the less well off have a smaller share, but also, because falling tax revenues must translate into further cuts in government services that benefit the less well off.

Worse still, is that getting the package through, will set the stage to cut company tax and Turnbull has promised to bring this in at the earliest opportunity.

Saving the corporate world from having to pay is not the primary objective. This government knows that those with the biggest obligations under the current rate pay very l...

Definition of Free Trade = Govt is Free to Change the Definition to Freely Get Revenue "IndyWatch Feed National"

COMMENT: I live in Alberta, Canada and for years as a sign maker I had to order materials from the United States. I can assure you that the problems you mention are no different than the problems we encounter when buying American products: tariffs; customs duties etc. and as well paying in $US which really hikes our prices. We also sold promotional items, many which we ordered from the States. What a nightmare!  I am now retired and I could go to the States to buy shoes, but why would I? We have shoes here, as a matter of fact, a lot of our friends are now only buying  Canadian products, especially since President Trump has made so many negative remarks about us. I actually thought he was doing great things for the USA, but these digs against Canada are not helping anything.

DC

REPLY: Trumps comment about scuffing up shoe is really ridiculous. The currency exchange defeats any benefit. This whole thing about blurring the distinction between tariffs and customs duties is a global problem. I was flying from Australia to Tokyo and I had to stop in Hawaii. I argued with the customs officer that I was going to Tokyo and then to New York so I should pay the customs duty one time on final entry. He was nasty and said either I paid there or they confiscated my bags. With no choice, I paid. Of course, when I landed in New York and told them I paid the duty in Hawaii, he could care less. They then made me pay it a second time.

This entire issue of trade is a total mess. Trump, in my opinion, does not understand trade and what really is going on. It is becoming outright extortion. If you eliminate the tariffs, they will still demand customs fees. We really need a complete reset. He should simply state that tariffs should end across the board except on defense and food.

Puan, the worlds oldest Sumatran orangutan, dies at 62 "IndyWatch Feed National"

JAKARTA Puan, the worlds oldest living Sumatran orangutan, has died at an Australian zoo after a lifetime spent in service to the conservation of the critically endangered species. Officials at Perth Zoo, where Puan had lived for the past 50 years, euthanized her on June 18, citing age-related health complications. She was 62 years old. Her death left an incredible legacy of 11 children and a total of 54 descendants in Australia, Europe, the United States and in the jungles of Sumatra, accounting for nearly a tenth of the global zoo population of Sumatran orangutans (Pongo abelii), according to a statement from Perth Zoo. Due to her genetic legacy, Puan played a vital role in ensuring the survival of the heavily threatened species. Of the nine existing wild populations of Sumatran orangutans, only seven each with an estimated 250 or more individuals have prospects of long-term viability, according to WWF. Only three of those population groups have more than 1,000 orangutans each. Some 29 of Puans descendants are still alive, including daughters Puteri and Pulang; grandchildren Utama, Teliti, Sekara and Lestari; and great-grandson Sungai, all of whom are also at Perth Zoo. At 62, Puan exceeded the usual life expectancy for her species. In the wild, female orangutans would rarely live past the age of 50, assuming they succumb earlier to a number of threats such as poaching. Puan is the total exception to the rule, Holly Thompson, a primate superviser at Perth Zoo, said in a

Corrupt Queensland police bribe bashing victim not to press charges "IndyWatch Feed National"

If Australia's police force gets caught out committing criminal offences, there are a few ways that the matter is dealt with by police.


In this case Queensland's Police Service whose chief is Ian Stewart (pictured above), offered cash or hush money in order for the victim not to pursue further action against police.

In the case of the 'whistle blower'  Rick Flori, he gets charged by the organisation he worked for, the organisation committing criminal offences.

SO to make it simple Sgt Rick Flori exposed criminal activity, where he gets charged for committing a criminal activity.

So in Australia it's a crime to expose criminal activity [of the 3rd tier of government, called the judiciary, which the police are part of]?

(Still need more proof you live in a police state?)


What is also concerning is that 18 months earlier Ian Stewart falsely stated that the victim Mr. Noa Begic did not want to pursue charges against police, when in fact he did.

Please note that he (Begic) was paid off in a secret and court sealed confidential settlement, where he then withdrew the complaint.

How can a court (or any person) trust the words of the chief of police Ian Stewart, when at law he is described as an 'unreliable witness'?

Nikki Haley: Damn the UN Human Rights Council and the Rest of You Too "IndyWatch Feed National"

On Tuesday, June 19, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced US withdrawal from the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) now meeting in Geneva. The UNHRC is stacked with human rights abusers including Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, and, till now, the US itself, but this is still an ugly gesture, like refusing to accept the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court, ditching the Paris Climate Accords, and shredding the Iran Nuclear Deal. Who gives a damn what the world thinks of us? We are good! As Hillary Clinton said at the last Democratic National Convention, America is great because its good. What could better evidence that than our 1000 or so military bases, our unparalleled arsenal, and however many wars were fighting, depending on how you count? Even BAR readers would probably have to stop and decide how to count before they could settle on a number. How dare anyone deny that America is good?

George W. Bush boycotted the UNHRC for three years, but Obama returned to the fold, and Hillary announced that we were back to set a new agenda, based on three principles, the second of which was: The Council must apply a single standard to all countriesIt cannot continue to single out and devote disproportionate attention to any one country, meaning Israel.

At the close of its first session, on June 30, 2006, the UNHRC voted to establish a standing Agenda Item 7: Human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories to be debated every time it convenesthree times a year. Its since passed over 70 resolutions censuring Israel, including 5 passed at its March meeting earlier this year. Nikki Haley then scolded the Council for being foolish and unworthy of its name.

Agenda Item 7 hasnt been debated in the current session yet, but more censure of Israel is no doubt in the works, given Israels latest massacres in Gaza. In 2016, the US and other Western states walked out during the Agenda Item 7 debate, and the delirious Jerusalem Post then screeched that 35 countries attacked Israeli human rights abuses against the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. Imagine that! Attacking Israeli human rights abuses. Israel is great because its good! It even has nuclear weapons and everybody knows it, especially Iran.

This week Israeli Defense Minister Avidor Lieberman called for Israel to withdraw from the UNHRC even though its not a member. He seems to think that the US and Israeli states are one. America and Israel are good!

Most folks have never even heard of the UNHRC, so, just for context:

The UNHRC is composed of 47 members elected to three year terms within five geographic groups: Africa, Central America and Caribbean, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, and Western European and Other States including the US and Australia. The seats are rarely contested; nations from t...

Blockchain Startup Power Ledger Brings Electricity Sharing to Silicon Valley "IndyWatch Feed National"

Australian based peer to peer energy trading platform Power Ledger will collaborate with Silicon Valley Power to track the renewable energy use of electric vehicles.

First Carbon Credit Project

Perth startup Power Ledger has been pioneering blockchain based peer to peer renewable energy projects in countries around the world. Now the company has announced its first carbon credit project as it partners with Silicon Valley Power in Santa Clara, California and the Clean Energy Block Chain Network to create a digital record of Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) transactions. With its aim being to reduce both the processing time and cost of LCFS credits.

The project has two main goals, using Power Ledgers cutting edge blockchain technology which tracks energy production, storage, and use in a transparent, auditable record. To be used in order to manage the consumption of low-carbon energy from Santa Clara solar and batteries at one of Californias largest public electric vehicle charging facilities. While also cutting the time and cost of processing LCFS credits by digitizing the management system that tracks low-carbon electricity as a fuel path.

The platform aims to cut out the need for additional software, hardware or engineers to connect the city-owned PV and SVP electric power grid by utilizing API data from pre-existing meters.

Power Ledger Managing Director and Co-Founder David Martin was quoted about the project,

Silicon Valley Power is a leader when it comes to implementing innovative customer programs with cost-saving technology and digital accountability, Adding later that, Were excited to demonstrate how the platform can assist with cutting both costs and carbon in a simple manner with a secure and clean energy source.

The Nazi plan to destroy Bayswater Subway "IndyWatch Feed National"

bayswater-subway

Once, crossing the railway at Bayswater was difficult, with vehicles forced to travel some distance away, and school children having to dash across the track in a dangerous manner. So the local council decided the best course of action was to go underneath it.

The first plan for a subway at Bayswater was as early as 1903 when the council asked for one to link King William Street to Coode Street. Nothing happened as a result, so they asked again in 1908. By now the problems associated with draining such a subway had been raised, and the council offered its engineer to sort these out.

Despite having promised a subway, the Government now claimed it was short of money but said they would do what they could. Some people, though, questioned if it could be done at all. After all, to get the road low enough it would have to be underneath the water table, and so drainage was impossible, and it would become a small lake with any amount of rain.

These misgivings were ignored though, and on 14 February 1910 the Chairman of the Board, Mr I. C. Granville, drove his horse and sulky through a ribbon held up by two young women and on into the new Bayswater Subway. It doesnt seem to have flooded, at least not to any noticeable extent. However, the open drains from the subway flowing down King William Street did keep making that road subside.

Terrifyingly, in 1942 a group of Perths Nazi...

A Million Eurydices "IndyWatch Feed National"

Harsha Prabhu on the rape culture that dominates our society.

This woman who was loved so much Rilke

Rape is our civilisational sub-text, the hidden hand that rocks our cradle.

Rape culture is endemic everywhere.

Indeed, ours is a civilisation based on rape and pillage. Thats been the operating model in the past. Its also the operating manual for the military industrial complex that runs our world today. And for modern, predatory capitalism.

Rape is also what we do to the earth. No wonder it affects all of us on the micro level.

Further, the so-called march of history itself can be viewed as a parade of victors, with the spoils of war preceded by slaves, children, women and men, who had either been raped or would be raped.

Thats what Walter Benjamin, possibly the greatest writer of the troubled Weimar years that saw the rise of German fascism, meant when he said: Theres no document of civilisation thats not at the same time a document of barbarism. He was referring to this victory procession.

Rape culture breeds and sustains our endless warmongering.

War is rape by other means; and rape is tantamount to a war on individual women (and men, as men get raped too).

Whats behind this culture of rape?

Its called the patriarchy and its at least as old as Zeus (if not older), who was a serial rapist himself. The patriarchy preferences the male perspective which sees women as goods and services subservient to mens needs and organises society based on this principle, with a warrior king at the top and everyone else beneath, women being at the very bottom.

Was it always like this?

No. There is ample archaeological evidence to suggest the cultures of the ancient world were organised in a radically different way. In her path-breaking book The Chalice and the Blade, Riane Eisler suggests these cultures worshipped the goddess and celebrated women as the equal of men. This perspective could be symbolised by the chalice and this culture was, in time, overrun by warlike tribes who were organised on very different principles might is right symbolised by the blade.

Why did this happen?

No-one knows for sure. The best guess, which Eisler advances, suggests a combination of unsustainable economic practices and early climate change, forcing tribes to move out of their traditional areas and fall upon others, like the wolf on the fold.

However, this poetic analogy from nature is itself fanciful. The key insight from Eislers study is this: the so-called war of the sexes is not a biological given but a historical and cultural construct.

The grotesque consequences of 'puppy-farming' humans for profit "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Australian Financial Review seems these days only to speak for the corporate land speculators and financiers. Bugger small or medium business which must pay the cost of mass immigration in high rents and reduced profit margins, making its products globally uncompetitive and underpinning the very high rate of business failure in Australia. Predictably, in its support of corporate business interests, the AFR is again trotting out the 'mass immigration keeps us young line' again. (See Jacob Greber,"Immigration supports ageing population, RBA says." June 19, 2018.) If we were to apply logic, however, immigration keeps us older. It's not just because, when immigrants arrive, they are always older than Australians who are born here, aged zero - although that is true. The fact is that Australia never had a big problem with an aging population and what problem anyone has with 'aging populations' is self-solving, through death - as long as we do not keep artificially adding new people. Even in Europe, the baby-boomer bump will pass away around 2050, giving Europe a more natural demographic. If you want to see real aging population problems before they happen in Australia, consider the 'developing world' as its swollen youth cohort ages.

Artificial creation of large fertile cohorts creates huge problems

When you have a lot of young people, then you have a huge increased fertility. If those young people also live long lives, then both the population total and the population inertia are huge. You start to get problems of scale, scarcity and resource inflation (not to mention loss of natural spaces and increases in regulation and surveillance). You then get policy conflict between those who benefit from the resource inflation and those who have to pay for it. This is what we have now in Australia.

The 2nd world war baby boom followed mass access to cheap petroleum, which permitted the rise of the car and many marriages that would not have been possible without access to the new suburbia that cars serviced. This was a once-only event.

Trying to normalise the post war baby boom is demographically grotesque

ZERO Tolerance: Kids at the Border "IndyWatch Feed National"

Protest in Los Angeles, (Reuters: Patrick Fallon)

by Cheryl Dean

Probably you have seen what is taking place at the US-Mexico border in the past few weeks. A zero tolerance policy was issued in mid-April 2018 by Jeff Sessions the Attorney General of the US at President Trumps insistence. This means that anyone crossing the border illegally will be prosecuted and their children will be taken from them.

And the US Attorney General has quoted the Bible in support of the plan.  He said:

I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government, because God has ordained them for the purpose of order. Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.

What! This is unheard of. The parents will go to immigration jail and their children will go to detainment camps or facilities. The US government says it doesnt like to see this bu...

A youth care worker who quit his job at a United States Tucson detention centre for unaccompanied minors is speaking out about inadequate facilities, untrained staff and inhumane policies, after witnessing the devastation of family separations firsthand. Antar Davidson says he quit after he was forced to tell children who were separated from their mother not to hug one another. The facility is run by Southwest Key, a nonprofit that operates 27 facilities and has signed a lease to detain hundreds of separated children, including many who are a younger than 12 years old, in a baby jail in a former warehouse and homeless shelter in Houston.

Trump administration quits UN Human Rights Council, exposing the dangers of complacency on human rights "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Trump administration has announced that it will quit the UN Human Rights Council, effective immediately.

Daniel Webb, Director of Legal Advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, is in Geneva for the current session of the Human Rights Council. Mr Webb said the move was widely expected by advocates and diplomats and is the latest step in the United States retreat from human rights and multilateralism.

"Its no secret that Trump hates human rights just ask the kids he is ripping away from their parents at the US border. Human rights are fundamentally about compassion and respect. Trump is not. So its no surprise to see him lash out at the worlds highest human rights body," said Mr Webb.

"We have massive cultural complacency around human rights in Australia. Thats why governments think its ok to imprison innocent children and families on remote islands for five years. But what Trump has exposed is that the very concept of universal human rights the very notion that people are equal and deserve compassion and respect  can no longer be taken for granted."

The widely expected announcement comes one day after the UN Human Rights chief, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, condemned the Trump administrations "unconscionable" practice of ripping apart migrant families and detaining children at the US border. It also comes two days into a three week session of the Council Australias second as a member. 

"At this pivotal moment in the history of human rights, the crucial question for our government is whether they will continue to be part of the problem  undermining the very foundation of human rights with hollow words and unprincipled actions, or will they actually own some principles, step up and become part of the solution?"

Mr Webb acknowledged that the UN Human Rights Council was not perfect but said it continued to play a crucial role in supporting victims of cruelty and injustice all over the world and in holding despots and dictators to account.

"This is the system that is helping expose the genocide and ethnic cleansing happening in Myanmar right now. This is the system condemning the use of chemical weapons and the killing of children in Syria, and calling for the release of journalists imprisoned around the world for speaking truth to power," said Mr Webb.

"If we want a world where people are treated fairly and humanely  where victims of cruelty and injustice arent just abandoned to suffer at the hands of dictators and military regimes then now more than ever we need governments like ours to stand up for human rights and play a principled and constructive role on the UN Human Rights Council."

Daniel Webb will be available for comment from the UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva.

Rosario Dawson introduces audiences to some of Australias ugliest endangered critters in the Wilderness Societys latest promotion.

LOS ANGELES, AAP Cate Blanchetts latest performance is as an ugly and endangered Australian Mary River turtle that sports a bright green mohawk hairdo and breathes through its genitals.

Her co-star is another Aussie A-Lister, Joel Edgerton, who plays an equally ugly ghost shark that is an animal kingdom oddity because its penis is on its forehead.

Hollywood actress Rosario Dawson, dressed in a costume that looks like it has been created by a bunch of kindergarten kids, is the star of the low budget production despite portraying an ugly singing, dancing, phytoplankton-sipping Australian ethmia clytodoxa moth.

We put our egos aside, Dawson told AAP.

We are really willing to do anything to get that attention because we need it.

The impressive cast, which also includes Teresa Palmer as a southern right whale, Samara Weaving as a ghost bat and Dan Wyllie as giant Gippsland earthworm, is part of new campaign by The Wilderness Society.

They star in a four-minute musical comedy video featuring puppet creatures, whacky and naughty lyrics and use of dollops of whale poo.

Dubbed Save Ugly, the campaign is aimed at raising awareness of all the aesthetically-challenged creatures in Australias ecosystems that help make life possible, warts and all.

Cute, furry animals often get the most help and support.

The Wilderness Society hopes the music video will shine a light on the endangered Mary River turtle and other creatures that need help to survive.

The video was shot in just one day in Los Angeles.

We need these different creatures, Dawson said.

It is important to know the phytoplankton feeds off the excrement of whales.

These tiny little things that we cant see with the naked eye capture more carbon than trees do.

Dawson joked Blanchett, a seven-time Oscar nominee and two-time winner, might even score another nod for voicing the turtle.

I will be rooting for Cate Blanchetts turtle to accept on all of our behalf, Dawson said.

The video can be v...

Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: Australia land of sunshine freezes, frost 1500 miles south of the Equator "IndyWatch Feed National"

What could be described as a Superfreeze event engulfed Australia over the weekend, send all but one capital in Darwin below 10C and record snow and cold to other parts with 3/4 of the continent in freeze and frost conditions. Amazingly frost extended to within 1500 miles of the equator. No that is not a misprint, frost just 1500 miles from the equator during this event. Power draw was at all time high and some manufacturers were charged 100x the normal rate and paying up to $14,000 per megawatt. This shows that 100% green energy for a continent is not achievable or sustainable. Sources

The Australian Broadcasting Corporations slant on this issue was predictable, but not for that any more excusable.

WestConnex sale looms as bidding duel narrows to Transurban, industry funds "IndyWatch Feed National"

The WestConnex project in Sydney has generated massive opposition form affected communities and led to the rise of community groups that are waging an ongoing campaign. This battle has contributed to the growth of a lack of confidence in government. This article by Michael West (18 June 2018) provides a rundown of the latest developments, which includes the moves to sell the projects resulting tollways to the private sector.

It is little wonder that trust in government is bruised by the day. The secrecy and dissembling over Australias largest infrastructure project, WestConnex, is a case in point.

To be fair, some sympathy might be conceded governments undertaking ambitious public works projects, especially when they entail tearing down peoples homes to build motorways and locking horns with angry residents groups. Even from the outset however, the $17 billion WestConnex project in Sydney has been handled more like an SAS mission than a public project requiring community consent and deliberation. As a suite of project deadlines looms, public confidence is running low.

The greatest flaw in this project has perhaps been the failure to consider, from the start,  whether rail might have been a better option than road. There was no Public Sector Comparator to contemplate a mass transit alternative which might be cheaper and more efficient. No public consultation or discussion. Just roads to be privatised, tolls to be had to juice up the sale price from privatisation.

Now, as the deadline for sale nears, the sale that is of a 51 per cent majority stake in Sydney Motorways Corporation (SMC) which houses the gargantuan WestConnex, questions over the project are hitting fever pitch. Does it stack up?

Another charge of cheating in cricket "IndyWatch Feed National"

The second Test match between the West Indies and Sri Lanka that ended yesterday in a draw saw another charge of ball tampering. Readers may recall the outrage in March following the discovery that three Australian players, including the captain, had tried to secretly use sandpaper to roughen up one side of the ball, a clear violation of the rules. All three received various punishments (see here and here and here). The charge this time is against the Sri Lankan cricket captain Dinesh Chandimal who was accused of eating a sweet (which is what a piece of hard candy is called by us cricket playing former colonials) and then using the sticky saliva to rub on the ball and thus change its condition. He has denied the charge and there will now be an inquiry.

This short video explains why the issue in this case is not as clear-cut as with the use of sandpaper. If you cannot see the embedded video, go here.

As to the physics involved, what is incontrovertible is that changing the nature of the surface of the ball by roughing it up or shining it or some similar action will undoubtedly alter its motion in flight in some way. What is not clear is how much the flight will be changed, in what way, and whether it can be predicted and thus controlled, because the equations of fluid dynamics are enormously complicated to solve, especially for turbulent motion, and depend on many variables.

I do not buy the defense that the sweet is used to simply generate more natural saliva (an allowed substance under the current rules) and not to produce artificial sticky saliva (which is not allowed). It seems absurd to argue that the mouth of players becomes so dry that it cannot produce the tiny amount of saliva needed to rub on the ball. If that were the case, the player would be in danger of collapsing due to dehydration.

I would like the authorities to throw the book at Chandimal and, given the arbitrary nature of the distinction between natural and artificial saliva, also change the rules so that not even saliva of any kind can be used to polish the ball, thus removing a temptation for players to indulge in this type of gamesmanship. The only thing that should be allowed is to polish the ball on ones cl...

John Pilger: Bring Julian Assange home "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Australian government has an obligation to free Julian Assange, John Pilger told a rally in Sydney on June 16, marking Assange's six years' confinement in the Ecuadorean embassy in London. The persecution of Julian Assange must end. Or it will end in tragedy. The Australian government and prime minister Malcolm Turnbull have an historic opportunity to decide which it will be. They can remain silent, for which history will be unforgiving. Or they can act in the interests of justice and humanity and bring this remarkable Australian citizen home. Assange does not ask for special treatment. The government has clear diplomatic and moral obligations to protect Australian citizens abroad from gross injustice: in Julian's case, from a gross miscarriage of justice and the extreme danger that await him should he walk out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London unprotected. We know from the Chelsea Manning case what he can expect if a U.S. extradition warrant is successful - a United Nations Special Rapporteur called it torture. I know Julian Assange well; I regard him as a close friend, a person of extraordinary resilience and courage. I have watched a tsunami of lies and smear engulf him, endlessly, vindictively, perfidiously; and I know why they smear him. In 2008, a plan to destroy both WikiLeaks and Assange was laid out in a top secret document dated 8 March, 2008. The authors were the Cyber Counter-intelligence Assessments Branch of the U.S. Defence Department. They described in detail how important it was to destroy the "feeling of trust" that is WikiLeaks' "centre of gravity". This would be achieved, they wrote, with threats of "exposure [and] criminal prosecution" and a unrelenting assault on reputation. The aim was to silence and criminalise WikiLeaks and its editor and publisher. It was as if they planned a war on a single human being and on the very principle of freedom of speech.

Scotsman's letter proves the slaughter of Aborigines "IndyWatch Feed National"

An extraordinary letter home to Scotland from a young man who had emigrated to Australia in the 1830s has been made available to people trying to reconcile with Aboriginal history. James Graham wrote home to his family in Fife in 1839, a year after he had emigrated to Australia, and his letter contains proof that Aborigines were massacred by white settlers - studies have shown that up to 60% of Australians still do not believe such atrocities happen. During National Reconciliation Week earlier this month - seven days of promoting Aboriginal culture - the so-called Overland Letter by Graham was promoted by the University of Melbourne in its online publication Pursuit. The letter from the university archives is extraordinary for several reasons, not least because it is a rare example of the "criss-cross" style of writing which Victorians used in order to save paper - the most famous user of that method was the missionary and explorer David Livingstone. According to Pursuit, Graham's cross-writing horizontally, vertically and diagonally filled two large leaves of heavy paper with words that would later add up to forty pages of typed transcription.

The Implications of Assanges Persecution for Journalism and Democracy "IndyWatch Feed National"

LONDON  (Opinion) Today marks the sixth anniversary of Julian Assanges ascent to the position of the worlds most well-known political refugee after daring to be the public face of the ground-breaking transparency organization WikiLeaks. Arbitrarily detained in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for more than half a decade, Assanges precarious situation a product of the U.S. and U.K. governments efforts to destroy and silence him forever threatens to devolve into tragedy.

If Assanges asylum is suspended or he is extradited to the United States, however, it will be much more than a personal tragedy for Assange. It will also be a tragedy for the publics right to know and the free flow of information the first major loss to an empires battle to quash dissent and silence those who seek to use information to liberate rather than deceive.

Assanges case means much more than the severe mistreatment torture, as some have said of a single man whose commitment to bringing the dark deeds of government crimes to light has forced him to sacrifice seeing the outside world even his own children for the better part of a decade. Though his mistreatment has no place in any civilized democracy, the outcome of Assanges case if his extradition to the United States does come to pass will have a powerful impact for journalism as a whole. Indeed, if the U.S.-led campaign to extradite and silence Assange is successful, it will invariably become the blueprint used by powerful governments like the U.S. to silence independent journalists the world over, and bludgeon them into submission.

It is the role of good journalism to take on powerful abusers Julian Assange

U.S. government efforts to destroy WikiLeaks and Assange in particular are well-documented, having been hatched long before Assange sought political asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy. Though efforts to discredit the organization have largely been more covert, the campaign targeting Assange has been crafted to target the...

US Actions In Light Of The Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees: This Doesnt Look Good "IndyWatch Feed National"

I wrote yesterday about US violations of the Convention Against Torture, but of course US lawlessness and evil doesnt end there.

Lets read about the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. Dont be confused by the fact that the UNCSR is limited to regulating the treatment of European refugees who migrated before 1952. In 1967 the UN passed an amendment that simply stated that the convention protects all refugees in any time and any place removing those restrictions but keeping the nature of the treatys requirements the same. There have been additional measures put in place by the UN to add additional protections in certain geographic regions for certain times, but when those special agreements are not in place, the fundamental protections of the 1951 treaty still require a minimum standard of just treatment to be followed by any and every nation which is a signatory.

First, heres a little of what the High Commissioner on Refugees has to say about the document:

the 1951 Convention endorses a single definition of the term refugee in Article 1. The emphasis of this definition is on the protection of persons from politi- cal or other forms of persecution. A refugee, according to the Convention, is someone who is unable or unwilling to return to their country of origin owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.

The Convention is both a status and rights-based instrument and is underpinned by a number of fundamental principles, most notably non-discrimination, non-penalization and non-refoulement.*1

While in practice there are probably discriminatory behaviors being undertaken by the US in how it handles the children of Europeans, Canadians, Australians, Kiwis and a few others vs how it handles the children of Latin American citizens who cross at the southern border, where the Trump administration is really screwed is non-penalization. In short, youre not supposed to punish someone for claiming asylum (refugee status). When the Trump administration advertises that they know this sucks (conceding the horror so that they can shift the blame to the Democrats) in some fora, while in other fora they speak specifically about wanting to discourage Latin Americans from coming to the US to claim asylum, they are de facto admitting to breaking the UNCSR.

But does it get worse? Oh yes. It gets worse. It doesnt require a specialist in public international law (or even a lawyer) to realize that this practice is seriously contrary to the norms established by the UNCSR. The very first substantive provision reads as follows:

GMO Rice Approved "IndyWatch Feed National"

By Dr. Mercola

Genetically engineered (GE) Golden Rice has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), making the U.S. the fourth country to give the GE food the green light, after Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Golden Rice is genetically engineered to contain extra genes that produce a precursor to vitamin A, beta-carotene.

The rice, which has been making headlines for nearly two decades, was widely touted as a solution to vitamin A deficiency, which affects 250 million preschool-aged children worldwide.1 As the leading cause of preventable blindness in children, it's estimated that up to 500,000 children become blind each year due to vitamin A deficiency, and half of them die within a year of losing their sight.2

A form of rice that could potentially alleviate this devastating micronutrient deficiency, especially in low-income countries in Africa and South-East Asia does, indeed, sound like a panacea. However, despite its recent FDA approval, there remain many doubts surrounding Golden Rice, including its usefulness, practicality and effectiveness for its intended purpose: relieving vitamin A deficiency.

FDA Says Golden Rice Is Safe, but Can't Make a Nutrient Claim

The FDA based their decision to approve Golden Rice on data supplied by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), the current makers of Golden Rice, who they have also tasked with ensuring the products safety in the future: It is IRRIs continuing responsibility to ensure that foods marketed by the firm are safe, wholesome, and in compliance with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements."3

While IRRI does not intend to grow or market Golden Rice in the U.S. at this time, it sought approval because it's expected that the product may be imported into the U.S., perhaps in other food products intended for animals or people.

While accepting IRRI's conclusion that Golden Rice is safe, they noted that its beta-carotene content is "too low to warrant a nutrient content claim." Health Canada similarly wrote that even if all rice and rice products in the country were replaced with Golden Rice, it would result in only a very small (0.8 percent to 8 percent) increase in beta-carotene intake daily.4

The FDAs approval could influence other countries consider...
