  • France: Farage evokes the Bible, ISIS and EU values to lambast Juncker

    The leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage lambasted the President of the European Commission (EC) Jean-Claude Juncker, after the latter's state of European Union address, Wednesday. Farage expressed indignation at the current European policy shifts towards accepting large numbers of refugees. Like many on the right-wing within Europe, Farage cast doubts over the authenticity of asylum requests, especially in light of Germany waiving the Dublin regulation. In the words of the UKIP leader, all people who want to enter Europe "have to do, as they are doing, is throw their passports in the Mediterranean and say they are coming from Syria." Farage therefore advocated the Australian solution of stopping the boats, after which, "we can assess who qualifies for refuge...

    http://www.euronews.com/ Thousands of Portuguese have turned out to protest against austerity cuts - gatherings have been held in more than 40 cities across the country. With the so-called Troika of lenders ( the International Monetary Fund, the European Union and the European Central Bank) in Lisbon for the seventh evaluation of the country's €78 billion bailout programme, the general message was "enough is enough" to the spending cuts. The fall in living standards and the rise in unemployment are ammunition for trade union leaders such as Armenio Carlos, Secretary-General of CGTP: "Today it is clear that this government has no political legitimacy, has no moral legitimacy, has no ethical legitimacy to continue to govern, because any visit, by any minister is followed with pro...

  • Hitler discovers that Jeremy Corbyn has been elected Labour leader

    A tolhurst parody. Hitler doesn't much care for politics, but when he learns of the election for Labour leader, he is certain that one person cannot win. Although Jeremy Corbyn is (believes Hitler) a National Socialist like Hitler, the difference is that that Nation is Russia. So when Hitler discovers that Corbyn has won, Hitler begins to consider what a one-party Britain looks like, mainly because the other party no longer has a hope, he thinks. Hitler is a bit concerned that Corbyn might be trying to live off the fruits of other people's labour, rather like other people's ideas of solidarity mean “Oo! Nice pencils! I'm having them!” And Islington is hardly famed for its wealth creation. This is why Finchley has declared independence. It also seems wrong that Labour is now being run b...

It's the thinnest electronic material ever invented, consisting of a layer of carbon atoms just a single atom thick -- the atoms are arranged in a hexagonal pattern. It weighs almost nothing, coming in at only 0.77 grams for a square meter. But it's no lightweight. Graphene is 100 times stronger than steel of the same thickness. It conducts both heat and electricity better than copper, and has outstanding optical and mechanical properties. If it could be produced on an industrial scale, graphene might revolutionize fields such as electronics and even body armor." A Lucky Lab Accident Results in Bucketloads of Graphene https://www.seeker.com/a-lucky-lab-accident-results-in-bucketloads-of-graphene-2230364207.html Apparently, when it comes to making graphene, the 21st-century 'miracle material' taking manufacturing by storm, you can do things the hard way or the fun way. The hard ways - and there are dozens - all have their own complications. Some require high temperatures and long 'cooking' times, others require the use of hazardous chemicals like sulfuric acid or hydrazine. The easy way comes from physicists at Kansas State University, and the process is admirably straightforward: Fill a steel containment unit with oxygen and hydrocarbon gas, detonate it with the spark and, voila, a bucketload of soot-like graphene. Scrape it out and repeat. Graphene sieve turns seawater into drinking water http://www.manchester.ac.uk/discover/news/graphene-sieve-turns-seawater-into-drinking-water/ "Graphene-oxide membranes have attracted considerable attention as promising candidates for new filtration technologies. Now the much sought-after development of making membranes capable of sieving common salts has been achieved. New research demonstrates the real-world potential of providing clean drinking water for millions of people who struggle to access adequate clean water sources. The new findings from a group of scientists at The University of Manchester were published today in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.

The solar sector nearly doubled the amount of solar power installed last year compared to 2015, GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association said in their annual analysis of the US solar sector. Indeed, more solar power was added last year to the nation's electricity grid than any other source of energy - a milestone for the burgeoning industry." Liquid storage of solar energy - more effective than ever before https://phys.org/news/2017-03-liquid-storage-solar-energy-effective.html "Many consider the sun the energy source of the future. But one challenge is that it is difficult to store solar energy and deliver the energy 'on demand". A research team from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, has shown that it is possible to convert the solar energy directly into energy stored in the bonds of a chemical fluid - a so-called molecular solar thermal system. The liquid chemical makes it possible to store and transport the stored solar energy and release it on demand, with full recovery of the storage medium." Make perovskite solar cells stable https://www.nature.com/news/make-perovskite-solar-cells-stable-1.21807 "The hunt is on to find a cheap and safe solar-cell technology. Crystalline silicon is the basis for 90% of commercial photovoltaic devices, which use semiconductors to convert light into electricity. But silicon photovoltaics are still expensive to process, their manufacture produces toxic by-products and they are cumbersome to install.

By Marshall Auerback The benefits of innovation are seldom questioned. Virtually every single growth initiative formulated by governments around the world to deal with today's challenging economic conditions invariably circles back to the need to promote innovation as a panacea. But what if innovation is not an unalloyed good for society? What if it simply adds to our current dystopian dysfunction? These are questions at the heart of the exchange below with Simon Head, author of the recent book, Mindless: Why Smarter Machines Are Making Dumber Humans. Head argues that our brave new world of networked computers, with monitoring software attached, have hugely expanded "the power to manage the affairs of giant global corporations and...micromanage the work of their single employees or teams of employees." Their possibilities have spawned "Computer Business Systems" (CBS) which have colonized much of the service sector. The ultimate impact is to discourage intuition and judgment in a large population, except for a tiny class of highly paid engineers and managers who are needed to activate and control the automated systems. What Head calls "digital managerialism" achieves this by transforming the objects of management into "electronic representations" of human beings. Organizations such as Wal-Mart or Amazon.com deploy innovation in their management systems to create what Head terms a "panoptic monitoring regime to pick up on...human waywardness [on the part of the employees] and correct it without delay." At financial institutions like Goldman Sachs, traders and managers depend so heavily on algorithms that they abdicate personal responsibility for events like the subprime mortgage crisis. In short, in the interview below, Head evokes a very different sort of world than the relentlessly sunny vision presented by the spokesmen in Silicon Valley. It brings to mind Orwell's 1984 - technology and innovation harnessed in the service of creating an environment of computerized control and monitoring. And it evokes the harsh capitalism of early industrial revolution, rather than the "golden period" of prosperity that existed in much of the post World War II era.

If you call history student Nikolai Podchasov on his cell phone these days, you will hear the popular wartime tune “Katyusha” while waiting for an answer. “I just like the song,” explains the 22-year-old Podchasov, who got it for free by dialing 1945 as part of a promotion tied to the Victory Day holiday. Symbols of the Soviet triumph in World War II are impossible to escape in Russia in the run-up to the 70th anniversary of Victory Day on Saturday. There are the black-and-orange St. George's ribbons tied to women's hand bags, wartime TV bulletins from the front line played after the evening news and “To Berlin!” stickers seen on car rear windows. May 9 has long been the most revered holiday in Russia, bringing together people of all generations and political views. But the holiday has become an increasingly pompous celebration as the Kremlin exploits the memory of the victory to reassert Russia's place in the world and justify its foreign policy. President Vladimir Putin also uses patriotism to rally the nation as the economy suffers under Western sanctions and to help stifle potential pockets of discontent. The Victory Day celebrations are a perfect vehicle for uniting Russians around a sense of national purpose. “It's the only opportunity for the nation to assert itself. There are no other foundations for national pride left,” said sociologist Lev Gudkov, director of the independent pollster Levada Center. “This is the triumph of the Soviet Union over Hitler's Germany and at the same time a triumph over the West. It's a declaration of might, the transformation into a superpower.” Since the beginning of the Ukraine crisis, the Kremlin has stoked patriotism by evoking World War II imagery to condemn the pro-Western government in Ukraine that took over last year after the ouster of the Russia-friendly president. On state television, the new Ukrainian leaders have been derided as “fascists” and the spiritual heirs of a wartime Ukrainian independence militant whom Moscow considers a Nazi collaborator. Most Russians have eagerly adopted the Kremlin-sponsored trappings to show their patriotism, including proudly wearing the St. George's ribbon, long associated with victory in World War II. And patriotism has helped to keep Putin's approval ratings sky-high, over 80 percent despite rampant inflation and Russia's increasing isolation from the West. Some, however, have been turned off by the lavish celebrations for Victory Day. Alexander Mikhailov, a 62-year-old engineer who spent years working at military rocket launch sites, said he sees the official celebrations as superficial, although he understands why they may be necessary “in light of the political moment and the need to consolidate the nation” in the face of Western pressure. The bigger disappointment for him is that the celebrations, and in particular the military parade on Red Square, are a bitter reminder of the loss of empire. “I'm proud of the victory of the Soviet people and the Soviet Union, but neither of them exists any more. Russia looks on the map the way it did in the 17th century,” Mikhailov said. “The victory should be celebrated as long as the country is using the fruits of this victory.” Olga Gref, a 37-year-old history teacher, recalled that for her grandmother, who died last year, watching the parade was a tradition as well as an occasion to shed a tear. For younger Russians like herself, the parade is “more about entertainment.” What touches her on Victory Day is when she and her family and friends reminisce about those who died and those who survived. “There's always this aching feeling, a lump in the throat and tears on the way,” Gref said. Russians' understanding of World War II evolved in the late 1980s when people began to talk openly about Soviet dictator Josef Stalin's repressions ahead of the Nazi invasion in June 1941 and the brutal treatment of Soviet soldiers during the war. But the portrayal of the war has reverted to the old propaganda, as exemplified by the portraits of beaming soldiers and pilots looking down from billboards along Moscow's streets. For Gref, the best way to keep alive the memory of the wartime suffering and sacrifices is to delve into family history. In her eighth-grade class on a recent afternoon, students brought memorabilia from home and told family stories of the war, which gave a picture far more complex than the official narrative. One student told the class about a great-grandfather who was a commander in the 1943 Battle of Kursk, while another spoke of a great-grandfather who wasn't able to go to war because he had been sent to a Gulag prison camp. A student also told the class about a man who had deserted and was caught and tortured by the Soviet security services.

A tolhurst parody. Hitler doesn't much care for politics, but when he learns of the election for Labour leader, he is certain that one person cannot win. Although Jeremy Corbyn is (believes Hitler) a National Socialist like Hitler, the difference is that that Nation is Russia. So when Hitler discovers that Corbyn has won, Hitler begins to consider what a one-party Britain looks like, mainly because the other party no longer has a hope, he thinks. Hitler is a bit concerned that Corbyn might be trying to live off the fruits of other people's labour, rather like other people's ideas of solidarity mean “Oo! Nice pencils! I'm having them!” And Islington is hardly famed for its wealth creation. This is why Finchley has declared independence. It also seems wrong that Labour is now being run by Watson and Corbyn - Tom and Jerry. This parody is based on, and evokes, the film “Downfall” (2004) by Constantin Film AG. The European Copyright Directive states: “The only, and essential, characteristics of parody are, on the one hand, to evoke an existing work while being noticeably different from it and, on the other, to constitute an expression of humour or mockery.” US COPYRIGHT DISCLAIMER Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for fair use for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.
