Urban Poems of Yearning and Heartbreak "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In 2016, John Godfrey published The City Keeps: New and Selected Poems 1966-2014 (Wave Books). This is good news for those whove been unable to find his work from the 70s, published in pamphlets by Adventures in Poetry and Bouwerie Editions. But its even better for readers who arent yet familiar with Godfreys texture-driven verse and prose.

For the majority of his writing life, Godfrey has been one of the lesser-known poets to come out of the 1960s and 70s zeitgeist of New Yorks Lower East Side poetry scene. He never sought the limelight. Instead, he stuck to his work as a poet, and from the mid-1990s through his retirement in 2011, as a nurse clinician specializing in HIV/AIDS. He once told me, as a nurse he would be up at 5:00 AM to get an early train out to the edges of Brooklyn and wouldnt return home until 10:00 PM. To maintain momentum with his writing, he would try to fill an index card when he got home each night, until he felt he had enough material to shape a poem.

Unlike Frank OHara and Ted Berrigan, whose poems are also inspired by the city, specifically New York, Godfrey seems more interested in capturing layers of atmosphere in his poems than in writing about himself and his life.

Like his predecessors, the visual arts have influenced Godfreys work. Schnapps Sonata, from Dabble, which was first published in 1982, offers this description of air and the mysterious actions of some unknown they:

When filled with, say, flakes
air softens the senses
In pointillistic smokiness
they are dismantling the stage
and removing the chairs
of history[.]

Pointillism, a 19th-century painting technique in which the artist applies small dots to the canvas to form the pattern of an image, trusts the viewer to perceive the image holistically. Godfrey composes much of his poetry similarly. His poems are more like patterns than traditional narratives, suggesting an attitude over a story.

Over the years, Godfrey honed his abilities as a flneur, a term which Walter Benjamin once described as an amateur detective and investigator of the city. His poems, in their use of street lingo and gritty detail, often have the feel of pulp ficti...

Environmentalists or is it just me? "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

It would seem that most of these environmentalist types are city dwellers, appear to like to dictate what everyone else should be doing. They seem to pretty much go with the flow, the only way you know they are an environmentalist is they tell you so, they used it as an excuse to buy a fancy expensive planet destroying hybrid, eat food I don't consider to be food and don't actually own any of the environment.

Mnica de la Torres Poems Reimagine an Iconic Martin Kippenberger Artwork "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Mnica de la Torres sixth book of poetry, The Happy End/All Welcome, begins by declaring itself to be after Martin Kippenbergers The Happy End of Franz Kafkas Amerika (1994), an installation of mismatched office furniture assembled on a soccer field for the purpose of conducting job interviews. Its an intriguing strategy. After, in this sense, implies time, open influence, and, by extension, the possibility of transformation. This frees de la Torre, a translator and art writer as well as a poet, to write her way out of Kippenbergers installation itself a riff off of a mass job fair near the end of Kafkas unfinished novel rather than into it, and to create a different tonal terrain for her work: one that uses the grammar of certainty to slowly unravel and ultimately rewire ones sense of orientation as a reader. She pitches changeup after deadpan changeup early on, mimicking the fantasy-logic of various types of business rhetoric while weaving together a stranger, irreducible structure.

Positions Available, the books first poem, is a list of exclamatory welcoming announcements from The Company that invite interested persons who either are or wish to become artists to join up. The distinction between being and becoming serves to divide the pool into those presently and potentially available before the perspective of The Company recedes into an array of serial, if irregularly appearing, forms: tables; case studies; questionnaires; views from various models of chair; fragments of ad copy; strategy statements; and job descriptions. The language deployed in these forms synthesizes business policy jargon, art-speak, batty instructions, dream descriptions, and over-exuberant promo copy, delivered largely in the mode of direct address, as well as a conversational diction that might best be described as the observations of the lost, as in Table 20, which consists of a Bather interviewing an Aspiring Lifeguard:

Bather: If you avert your eyes from something your/eyes cant help but see, are you seeing it or/not?

Aspiring Lifeguard: I see a nesting table in the distance. Table/or tables? My vision is blurry at all distances./My corneas have flat and steep areas;/likewise my mind.

Subtle Ways Psychiatry Has Harmed Us "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Often without reason, psychiatrists will forcibly institutionalize people, shock them, and medicate them against their will; these are extreme and unnecessary methods that the system employs against a significant number of people it deems dangerous. But there are other, more subtle ways in which psychiatry degrades and harms those it sees as mentally ill, and encourages us to degrade ourselves as well.

Though the two of us have never been in a psych hospital, we have suffered many of these subtle forms of oppression by psychiatry. It was essential for us to find new frameworks to understand ourselves that didnt depend on what psychiatry thought of us. Before we get into that, though, we should introduce ourselves.

Who we are (and why that matters)

You may be wondering why were writing this together, since this is a personal story. Were writing this together because we do everything togetherliterally, everything. We exist as whats called a multiple system, or just system for short, which means that were multiple people (two, at the time of writing) sharing one body. We use the name Violent Trans Empire to refer to ourselves as a group.

There are many explanations for how there can be multiple people in one body, and many ways to experience itsome systems were born as multiple people, some used spiritual techniques to call in others from what they see as different realms to share a body with them, and some, like us, had our brain create multiple people to help deal with trauma and abuse.

This last idea is probably the most familiar in pop culture. Psychiatry calls it Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), but its often still known as Multiple Personality Disorder or just split personalities. The idea of several alternate identities in one body, fighting for control of their body and suffering from amnesia, has been held up as a classic plot twist in movies like Split, Fight Club, and Sybil. Multiple systems are regarded as either dangerous killers who ought to be controlled by the psychiatric system, or helpless victims who must rely on psychiatry to heal our broken minds.

Neither of these ideas are true for us, and encountering them early in our process of understanding ourselves was deeply harmful. While the first was easy to dismiss as just pop culture nonsense, the second was much harder to overcome.

How the psychiatric model misled us

We first discovered the idea of multiple systems online, and through reading about others experiences, we began to realize how much we could relate. I (Skylar) have been in this body since birth and had always assumed that Missy and previous others were just fancy imaginary friends who had stayed around past the usual age. Upon rea...

Hangings at Tyburn resume today "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Following the successful reintroduction of paupers funerals, in which local authorities arrange the details and recover any costs they can from the dead persons estate, the next phase of the governments reintroduction of pre-Victorian values will see the return of mass hangings at Tyburn. A pilot scheme is now being rolled out, covering such heinous crimes as murder, petty treason and stealing goods worth more than 2s 6d.

Were killing two birds with one stone, as it were, said Justice Secretary Elizabeth Truss. The prisons are horribly overcrowded and expensive to run, while we are also strong believers in the adage that justice should not only be done but be seen to be done. Fortunately, the location of the old Tyburn Tree, near where Marble Arch stands now, is highly visible.

Plans are to recreate the process as near as possible to its historic form. As Newgate prison no longer exists, condemned prisoners will be taken straight from the Old Bailey to Tyburn by horse and cart or, if the authorities wish to make a particular example of them, a Fiat Multipla. Their last stop at the Masons Arms for a pint of gin will be restricted to ten minutes so as to keep the whole process to three hours, since traffic speeds down Oxford Street have fallen considerably since Georgian times.

Recent building in the vicinity has made the reconstruction of Mother Proctors Pews for spectators impractical. However, Truss said that there would be many options for the public to watch the hangings, including from the 30, 94 and 113 buses, rooms in some Park Lane hotels and highlights of the week on BBC 1 after Match of the Day, except in Scotland where viewers will have their own programmes.

The first criminal to make his way to Gods Tribunal will be James Underwood, 29, who was convicted earlier today of the newly restored capital offence of going about at night in a blackened face in a case that the Daily Mail described as criminal correctness gone mad. Parts of his last dying speech have already been posted on Facebook and read:

How dismal is the lot of him you see,
A guilty suffrer at the Fatal Tree!
Take heed, who watch, and pray most true and hearty
That we be grateful for the Tory Party

Need help: Heating issue "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Decided to post a little project I've been considering. A few months back I started tinkering with an idea I've had. Picked up a used camper last summer. Heater works great but I need other options as well. Propane will only last so long. When it warms up I'm also going to figure out how to use wood to heat it. I won't put a stove in it for many reasons. The stove will go outside. But that's later.

  • On the downside, there is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $15,800 on the same chart.

Bitcoin price is moving positively from $12,500 low against the US Dollar. BTC/USD is currently eyeing more gains as long as above $15,800.

Bitcoin Price Rise

We saw a decent support base formed in bitcoin price around the $12,000 level against the US Dollar. The price started a nice upside move and managed to move above the $13,000 and $14,000 resistance levels. During the upside move, the price also moved above the $15,000 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Moreover, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $14,100 on the 4-hours chart of BTC/USD.

It opened the gates for more gains and the price was able to move above the $15,000 and $16,000 levels. A high was formed recently at $17,048 from where the price may correct a few points lower. An initial support on the downside is around the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $14,040 low to $17,048 high. Moreover, there is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $15,800 on the same chart.

Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis BTC USD

The trend line support is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $14,040 low to $17,048 high. Therefore, if the price corrects lower, it is likely to find support above $15,500.

Pineal Gland Third Eye The Fascinating Nature of Your Inner Vision "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

To this day, scientists from around the globe, specialized in studying the anatomy of the human body, have made dwarfish success in demystifying the secrets of the pineal gland, not to mention the denyal of the process of calcification, which everyone should be informed about.

What we know for a fact is that the pineal gland is the size of a raisin and that its located right between our eyebrows, directly in the middle of our cranium.

For many scientists, the pineal gland is the master gland of all endocrine glands located in the human body.

Interestingly, when you look at the pineal gland, you cant help but notice how strikingly similar its form is to a pinecone.

Bitcoin Gold Price Weekly Analysis BTG/USD Showing Positive Signs "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin gold price is moving nicely and is forming support around the $210 level against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with current resistance at $270 on the 4-hours chart of BTG/USD (data feed from Bitfinex).
  • The pair has to move above the $270 and $290 resistance levels to move back in the bullish zone.

Bitcoin gold price is slowly gaining pace above $220 against the US Dollar. BTG/USD must clear the $270 and $290 hurdles to gain traction.

Bitcoin Gold Price Support

There was a sharp downside move in bitcoin gold price from the $420 high to $192 low against the US Dollar. Later, the price formed a decent support base and moved above $200. It has formed a good base above the $200 level and is currently trading in a range above $200-220. It recently succeeded in breaking the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $420 high to $192 low.

However, there are two important resistance forming on the upside at $270 and $290. Both acted as a major barriers for more gains. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with current resistance at $270 on the 4-hours chart of BTG/USD. The trend line resistance is above the 100 simple moving average. The current price action is positive above $240. Therefore, there is a chance that BTG could move above $270. However, the $290 resistance is the next barrier along with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $420 high to $192 low.

Bitcoin Gold Price Weekly Analysis BTG USD

A proper close above the $300 level is required for buyers to gain momentum. As long as the price is below the $300 level, there can be more ranging moves between $220-290.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BTG/USD is slightly in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BTG/USD is moving higher toward the 70 level.

7 Differences Between Those Who Pretend to be Awake and Those Who Truly Are "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

There are people in this world who are truly awakened, that much is obvious, but sadly there are not very many of those people. We for whatever reason have an abundance of those who want to pretend to be awake but still refuse to see the light.

Now, when it comes to telling these false gurus and so forth from the real thing you need to know where you are spiritually as well. If you are not centered in your being you will fall victim to those who merely wish to profit off of you. Below you will find a list of red flags that will help you determine whether or not someone is genuine in their practice.

7 Differences Between Those Who Pretend to be Awake and Those Who Truly Are:

1. Those who are true teachers know no two paths are the same.

Those who are true teachers are not going to push you to go down the path they did. They know that everyone has to make their own path. False teachers will give you a become awakened quick scheme and try to shove it down your throat. Have you ever heard trust me if you do it this way you will become enlightened? That is a bunch of bull.

2. Those who are true teachers live their best lives.

Those who are true teachers are happy and content with who they are and where they are. They know their purpose and do not complain or whine about things as false teachers do. They are more mature and grounded in life.

3. Those who are true teachers teach love and freedom on a real level.

True teachers dont teach you that you have to stay by their side or under their wing. They know you must go your own way if that is where your purpose takes you. True teachers are generous but will not be taken for granted. You can come and go as you please if you do as you are supposed to and respect them.

4. Those who are true teachers do not want all of your money.

False teachers will charge you a lot of money and give you little in return. They want all they can get and dont care where you end up. They do not care about your spiritual journey because theirs is fake either way.

5. Those who are true teachers are willing to be criticized.

True teachers will not shut down or get mad when you criticize them. They know that even they are not perfect. We all have room to grow.

6. Those who are true teachers are not going to rush you through things.

True teachers know that everyone does things at their own pace. Some will become awake quicker than others. This is just how the universe works. Those who are false teachers will always be pushing you and trying t...

7 Zodiac Signs that Love to Play With Our Heart Strings "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Sure, some zodiac signs are a bit more aggressive than others, but who knew that some were more willing to break hearts than others? You can find just about anything when it comes to really delving into the zodiac signs.

Below you will find a list of zodiac signs that are far more ready to play games with your heart than the others. While not everyone under these signs is out to manipulate and hurt us a lot of them are. Whether they do so on purpose or simply dont know what they want varies but it always ends painfully.

Taurus

Because the Taurus is so quick to let his or her temper get the best of his or herself they tend to hurt others more than they realize. This results in a lot of broken hearts who just couldnt put up with their anger. While it is not entirely their fault they do need to work on this if they want a real relationship to last in the future.

Aries

The Aries breaks a lot of hearts on purpose. This person notices when someone is interested in him or her and toys with them. This is very similar to how the Leo toys with people as well and can be devastating.

Leo

As I mentioned above Leos like to toy with people much like Aries do. They will let someone think they are in love only to use them for their own personal gain and throw them aside as if they were nothing. This is a terrible cycle that you do not want to be a part of.

Virgo

The Virgo is going to do whatever he or she can to bring you down. This person will constantly put you down and make you feel like you are doing something wrong. Dont get me wrong if you happen to end up with a good Virgo then you have hit the jackpot but the ones who are all about themselves are not people you want to be with. They will only keep you around for convenience.

Capricorn

Capricorns dont do this on purpose they just take everything a bit too seriously. They are forever expecting the worst from those they are with and it sets their relationships up to fail. They end up hurting the ones who care for them the most.

Scorpio

Scorpios are all about the chase. Once the chase is over they are ready to move onto the next. Dont let a Scorpio seduce you into thinking you are the only one. Sure, there are some Scorpios who are more relationship oriented, but a lot of them are only interested in getting where they are going.

Pisces

Pisces are just too caught up in doing their own thing that relationships dont end up bei...

27 Things You Need to Know About Loving Someone With A Guarded Heart "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Sometimes we go through things in life that change us, and for many, these changes include building walls around our hearts.

While these walls are very real they are not impossible to break down. If you love someone with a guarded heart you need to know the following things before getting in too deep. Just because you love someone doesnt mean the relationship is going to be easy.

27 Things You Need to Know About Loving Someone With A Guarded Heart:

1. You must be patient.

She is not going to fall head over heels for you in one night. You have to be patient if you want to win her over. She is not someone you can sway with ease.

2. She knows how dangerous love is.

She is all too familiar with the bullshit that comes with love in itself. She is a great lover, but also one that tends to be a bit reserved. You have to get used to this.

3. She is not going to be quick to show emotion.

She is not going to show you her vulnerable side easily! You just have to be patient, but it will pay off in the end. The longer you stick around the more she will reveal.

4. You will not be able to win her over with material things.

If you try to sweep her off of her feet she will simply cut contact. She is not someone who can be swayed. You have to win her over in other ways.

5. She does not owe you anything.

If she decides she doesnt want to pursue a relationship you have to accept that. Not every woman with a guarded heart is able to love again. Sure, they may want to, but it just is not in them anymore.

6. She does not need you.

She doesnt need you or anyone else. She is her own person and can do whatever she wants. Her life is not as empty as you think it is.

7. She respects your vulnerable side but is not going to let you know that right off the bat.

While you may not realize it she does appreciate you and respects you. She likes seeing your vulnerable side, but you wouldnt know it from the beginning. Things will change as time passes.

8. She is more empathetic than she lets on.

She is empathetic on a level like no one else but she doesnt express it as much as most do. She is good at holding things in. Bottling is her expertise.

9. She will be more impressed with kindness than flowers.

She is all about kindness and affection but not in an overwhelming manner. The more money you try to spend the more her guard will be up.

10. She apprecia...

5 Reasons Why You Should Not Be Afraid of The Dark "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Being afraid of the dark is more common than you think. It is natural and most people feel it at least at some point in their lives.

There is when you really think about it an evolutionary reason as to why we are afraid of the dark. While most people think being afraid of the dark is childish it is anything but. Researchers have hypothesized that this fear in itself stems from a point in history when we were not the top predators. We often fear the unknown and in the dark, there comes a lot of unknown.

We were also raised seeing monsters and hearing stories of scary things hiding in the dark. Even most religious cultures associate evil with darkness. It is also a pretty conditioned fear for most. With that being said, we should not be afraid of the dark. There is a lot we can learn from the dark and if nothing else we should respect it and find it to be peaceful, to say the least.

5 Reasons Why You Should Not Be Afraid of The Dark:

1. There is balance in darkness.

In darkness, we can find parts of ourselves we didnt realize existed. While this may sound pretty cheesy to some if you have ever spent time reflecting in the dark you know this to be true. There is a lot of peace in the silence that comes with it.

2. In the darkness, we can calm our minds.

In the dark, we are able to let our minds relax. I find meditating in the dark before bed to be quite soothing. Nothing is more relaxing to me than being alone in the dark, as weird as that may sound.

3. Darkness allows us to visualize things more clearly.

In the dark we can visualize on a level we would not be able to in the light. We dont even have to close our eyes to see things we want to see. While this takes some practice it is quite interesting, to say the least. I mean even when you close your eyes you are in the dark, it is unavoidable.

4. Without darkness, we would not appreciate the light.

If we never had any darkness no one would appreciate what the beauty of light is. If the sun was seen 24/7 all over the planet would you really be happier? I know I wouldnt be. I need the darkness and of course, we need it as well.

5. Darkness symbolizes endless possibilities.

Darkness is symbolic of a lot of things, but something that really touches base with me is that in a lot of religious or theories, darkness was what came first. There was nothing but darkness and now there is so much more than that. From darkness, anything can happen.

Do you value the dark as much as you should? Please feel free to check out the video below to get a better understanding of...

We all have the ability to do this as long as we are open and confident in who we want to send loving, healing energy to.

Here is how to send distant healing energy to another person, animal or plant:

Ethereum price is making a nice move against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is likely to accelerate higher and it could test the $1105 level.

Ethereum Price Uptrend

There were nasty gains in ETH price this past week as it moved above the $900 and $1000 resistance levels against the US Dollar. There were a couple of swing moves from the $1000 level, but at the last, the price was able to settle above $1000. At the moment, the price is trading nicely above the $1000 level. The best part is the fact that the price has breached the 1.236 extension of the last drop from the $864 high to $475 low.

It has opened the doors for more gains above $1000. On the downside, there are two major bullish trend lines forming with support at $990 and $770 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The first trend line is the current trend support around $1000. However, the second one is more important around the $770 level since it is close to the 100 simple moving average. The current price action is positive and it seems like more gains are possible above $1000.

Limit the Lectins "IndyWatch Feed Health"

30 Tips in 30 Days Designed to Help You Take Control of Your Health

This article is part of the 30 Day Resolution Guide series. Each day a new tip will be added designed to help you take control of your health. For a complete list of the tips click HERE

By Dr. Mercola

Lectins can be a common and hidden source of health problems and weight gain, even if you eat an otherwise healthy diet. Lectins have been linked to autoimmune reactions and inflammation, and many are toxic to your cells and nerves. Certain types of lectins may increase your blood viscosity, interfere with gene expression and disrupt your endocrine function.

If you are dealing with an autoimmune disease, you will need to be especially careful with lectins, and you may benefit from a lectin-restricted diet. That said, it is nearly impossible to avoid lectins 100 percent of the time. I do not recommend a lectin-free diet simply because youd miss out on antioxidants and other nutrients in lectin-containing foods, including many otherwise nutritious vegetables. A better approach is to consume lectins occasionally and pay attention to how they affect you.

If you consistently experience bloating, gas and joint pain after eating beans, for example, your body may be reacting to the lectins. How you prepare lectin-containing foods makes a big difference in your bodys ability to handle them, and using a pressure cooker is by far the best approach. If youve been eating a whole-food diet yet find yourself struggling with unexplained weight gain and/or stubborn health problems, it might be time to limit the lectins.

What Are Lectins?

Lectins are sugar-binding plant proteins that attach to your cell membranes. They are a form of protein found in all kinds of plants and animal foods, which some consider to be a low-level toxin. Lectins provide a built-in defense mechanism that triggers a negative reaction in predators, aiding in their survival. About plant lectins, Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof.com, states:1

There are countless varieties of lectins in nature Plants evolved to reproduce. They actually have no interest in being a food source for you, or even for insects or fungi. Since they are not good at running away, plants developed natural pesticides and repellents to protect themselves and their seeds from hung...

Court orders Antifa activist to pay $11k for frivolous claims

Anthony Gockowski
Anthony GockowskiContributing Editor/Investigative Reporteron Jan 05, 2018 at 11:39 AM EDT
  • A prominent Antifa activist has been ordered to pay $11,100 in attorney fees to the former president of the Berkeley College Republicans for filing a frivolous restraining order against him.
  • Troy Worden had been seeking up to $100,000 in damages, arguing that Yvette Felarca had abused the justice system by "filing baseless and vexatious lawsuits" designed to intimidate her political opponents.

A California court has ordered noted Antifa activist Yvette Felarca to pay over $11,000 in damages to former Berkeley College Republicans President Troy Worden.

The ruling, issued Wednesday, comes after a restraining order filed against Worden by Felarca was dropped in October, prompting Worden and his lawyer, Mark Meuser, to sue Felarca for damages and attorney fees, as Campus Reform first reported

"The award of attorney fees should send a strong signal that she cannot abuse the court system to silence speech."

If You Still Have Your Childhood Polly Pocket Toys They Could Be Worth Thousands! "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Rated as one of Time Magazines All-Time 100 Greatest Toys, Polly Pocket has captivated young girls across the world since her creation in 1989. The toys creator, Chris Wiggs, used a powder compact to create a toy for his daughter Kate that she could carry around just like her mother and her make-up. Originally licensed through the company Bluebird Toys of Swindon, England, the company was then purchased by Mattel in 1998.

The sale of Polly and friends led to a makeover of the toys with Polly now larger than the original and looking more realistic. Mattel also released Fashion Polly Pocket, complete with bendable joints and Polly Stretch clothing, as well as the magnetic Polly World line for Polly and her friends. Polly even has her own YouTube channel, sharing her adventures with children the world over.

If you grew up playing with Polly and friends, and are still holding onto your childhood favourites, weve got great news todays collectors are willing to pay a pretty penny for these memories of days gone by! Of course, this would mean that you would have had to keep track of that tiny little doll, a task that was sometimes difficult due to her small size! If you still have any of the following Polly Pocket compacts it may be time to consider parting ways!

Pedophiles Need Sympathy & Support "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

I just watched this documentary on Netflix (whose title I cant remember) from Britain about pedophiles (which they spell paedophiles and pronounce differently) and how, with 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 8 boys before the age of 16 being molested or raped that meant that a LOT of men out there (very few women commit the crime, although it is not unheard of) are offending against children. It is absolutely epidemic, in all races and classes and environments. No one disputes that this is a massive problem.

The angle the rather short documentary took was that sexual attraction to adult men and women versus very young children was on a spectrum, it was rarely black and white. Okay And that men who have those feelings have no where to turn for help with their natural though excessively devastating on the lives of children proclivities! So we should have more treatment and less stigma attached to these men so theyll be more likely to get treatment and less likely to offend.

=^/

Where to start? Hmmm.

To begin with, I assert, in opposition to this film, that a man (or anyone) who has fantasies of raping a woman is nota rapist. Nor is a man (or anyone) who has fantasies of sexually touching children a pedophile. YET. What goes on in peoples heads in the privacy between their ears doesnt make them a part of a criminal population. What defines a rapist or a child molester is someone who rapes or molests who crosses the line from imagination into trespassing upon another persons reality.< this is a crucial point i will visit again below!

They were mixing the 2 frequently, and thats what led to the other problems Im about to bitch about in their line of reasoning.

In addition, they claim that the issue is a lack of support for these poor, dear, misunderstood darlings who just need to be acceptable enough to not be ashamed to reach out and ask for help. (One such non-offending but attracted-to-little-girls man was presented as an example.) When these men (so stated the documentary) are made to feel ashamed and fear reprisal, they are actually more stressed out by societys ostracism and therefore more likely to offend!! We should therefore strive to not stress out potential child rapists and molesters! (No seriously, they said that!)

Now, while I would certainly encourage anyone to get help with impulse control issues, etc. I dont think the cause of rape and molestation is a lack of access to sympathetic therapy. I can very well believe that people have desires that are not healthy for themselves or others like pyromaniacs who feel compelled to start fires. It would not surprise me in the least that many such p...

The Law of Jante? (Result?, Sweden) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The Law of Jante? Of course I had never heard of this, so he explained what it was. I continued on my journey and discovered it is hard to find anyone in any of the Scandinavian countries who does not know this law. Although the law exists since the beginning of civilization, it was only officially declared in 1933 by writer Aksel Sandemose in the novel A Refugee Goes Beyond Limits.

The sad truth is that the Law of Jante is a rule applied in every country in the world, despite the fact that Brazilians say that this only happens here, and the French claim that unfortunately, thats how it is in our country. Now, the reader must be annoyed because he/she is already half way through the column and still does not know what the Law of Jante is all about, so Ill try to explain it here briefly in my own words:

You arent worth a thing, nobody is interested in what you think, 
mediocrity and anonymity are your best bet. 
If you act this way, you will never have any big problems in life.


The Law of Jante focuses on the feeling of jealousy and envy that sometimes causes so much trouble for people. This is one of its negative aspects, but there is something far more dangerous. And this law is accountable for the world being manipulated in all possible manners by people who have no fear of what the others say and end up practicing the evil they desire. We have witnessed useless war in Iraq and elsewhere, which are still costing many lives; we see a huge abyss between the rich and the poor countries of the world, social injustice on all sides, unbridled violence, people being forced to give up their dreams because of unfair and cowardly attacks. Before starting the second world war, Hitler sent out several signals as to his intentions, and what encouraged him to go ahead was the knowledge that nobody would dare to defy him because of the Law of Jante.

Mediocrity may be comfortable, up to the day that tragedy knocks at the door and people start to wonder: But why did nobody say anything, if everybody could see that this was going to happen? Simple: nobody said anything because the others did not say anything either. So in order to prevent things from growing any worse, maybe this is the right moment to write the anti-Law of Jante:

You are worth far more than you think. Your work and presence on this Earth are important, even though you may not think so. Of course, thinking in this way, you might have many problems because you are breaking the Law of Jante but dont feel intimidated by them, go on living without fear and in the end you will win.

Are Whites Being Setup For Genocide?

Paul Craig Roberts

Identity Politics has responded with outrage against People Magazines choice of white male country singer Blake Shelton as sexiest man in the world. According to adherents of Identity Politics, the choice indicates that People Magazine is itself racist and part of the white supremacy movement to elavate white people above people of color. The choice is doubly outrageous because, according to a writer in Salon, it reinforces and celebrates toxic white male sexuality and elevates a white man to a position of popular acclaim.

Every white person needs to read this article  http://www.unz.com/article/the-end-of-white-celebrity/  to understand how they are being demonized and marginalized to the point of oblivion. By focusing primarily on white heterosexual males, Identity Politics tries to split white women off from white men by the use of the pejorative misogynist, but, as the article reports, white women, such as Taylor Swift, are also publicly demonized for their whiteness.

Reading this article in The Unz Review reminded me of an article I read last November in a Texas university newspaper that declared white DNA to be an abomination.

Bitcoin Cash Price Weekly Analysis Can BCH/USD Break This? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price is struggling to move above the $2600 and $2700 resistance levels against the US Dollar.
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance at $2600 on the 4-hours chart of BCH/USD (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair has to move above the $2600 and $2700 levels to gain traction in the near term.

Bitcoin cash price is finding bids above the $2200 level against the US Dollar. BCH/USD must close above $2700 to move back in the bullish zone.

Bitcoin Cash Price Upside Hurdle

After a sharp downside move toward $2000, bitcoin cash price found support against the US Dollar. The price started a recovery and managed to settle above $2200. There were a couple of upside attempts, but it struggled to move above $2800 and then at $2700. It seems like there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance at $2600 on the 4-hours chart of BCH/USD.

The mentioned trend line is acting as a major upside hurdle and prevented gains above $2700. The trend line at $2600-2700 is also around the 100 simple moving average on the same chart. Therefore, a break above $2700 and the 100 SMA wont be easy. The pair is currently above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $2880 high to $2281 low.

Bitcoin Cash Price Weekly Analysis BCH USD

However, it has to move above $2700 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $2880 high to $2281 low to gain upside momentum. Once there is a close above the $2700 resistance and the 100 SMA, the price could accelerate toward $3000 and then $3200. On the downside, the $2200 and $2000 levels are important supports.

Looking at the technical indicators:

4-hours MACD The MACD for BCH/USD is mostly flat and is showing signs of a range.

4-hours RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BTC/USD is currently above the 50 level.

Laravels Polymorphic Relationships: A Practical Use Case "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Recently, when working on my side hustle Zero to Grow, I ran into quite a complex database design issue.

The solution involves a use case for Laravels Polymorphic relations that goes way beyond the comments example in the documentation.

Whats the problem

To get under the hood of this problem, youll need to understand a little bit more about the app I am building.

Zero to Grow is an app aimed at developers who want to grow their side projects. Whether their goal is to increase traffic, retention, conversions or anything else; this app is here to help.

Upon signup, the user is asked to define the overall goals that they wish to achieve and the metrics they need to track along the way.

Once their goals are defined, the user then creates and runs tests on their side hustle with the aim of meeting those goals. An example of a test would be Send at least one tweet per day to increase engagement.

As with goals, the user needs to define the metrics to track in order to determine whether or not the test was successful.

It should be possible for metrics to be updated as often as the user requires throughout the course of the test or goal.

To make things more complicated, we also have the concept of ideas. They can be either private to an individual user or made publicly available for others to use.

Ideas are always the starting point of tests. The user will find an idea, either by creating it themselves or by searching the public directory, and begin testing it to see its impact on the overall goal.

Designing the schema

In order to understand how polymorphic relations can help, Im going to talk you through the schema I designed to solve this problem, piece by piece.

Goals and metrics

Upon starting the goal, the user should enter the base and target metric values. During the lifetime of the goal, they should regularly update the metrics with the latest values.

The data structure would look something like this.

This diagram is telling us each goal can have one or many metrics and each metric can have one or man...

Reverse-Engineering the iPhone X Home Indicator Color "IndyWatch Feed Education"

I noticed an unusual behavior of the iPhone X home indicator while working on my most recent app. The apps background near the home indicator is purple. When the app launches, the home indicator is very light gray.

But something odd happened when I pressed the apps share button, which opened a default iOS activity view (aka share sheet). When I hit the cancel button to close the activity view, the home indicator animated to a dark gray color.

Home indicator starts light, then a share sheet passing makes it dark.

Even though the background color was exactly the same, the light-colored activity view passing underneath caused the home indicator to change color. The only way to get the home indicator back to its original color was to leave the app and come back.

I had never seen this before, and it prompted my curiosity.

What determines the color of the home indicator and why it does it behave like this? The answer is surprisingly complex. Lets take a deep dive and see what we can learn!

Home Indicator Basics

In September 2017, Apple introduced its newest iteration of mobile phone: iPhone X. The new design replaced the iconic home button with on-screen gestures. To go home, the user simply swipes up from the bottom of the screen.

https://www.apple.com/iphone-x/

The Home Indicators Purpose

To create the affordance of being able to swipe up from the bottom of the screen, Apple added a small horizontal bar known as the home indicator. The home indicator is always present except for the home screen and in any apps that request it to be temporarily hidden (full-screen video, games, etc.).

The home indicator serves another purpose: protecting the bottom edge of the screen from conflicting user interface elements and gestures. Because the user needs to be able to swipe up from the bottom of the screen at any time, best practices now dictate that developers should avoid place conflicting gestures or buttons in the bottom edge of the display.

By placing a bar at the bottom, user interface elements in the same location look wrongtheres a visual conflict between the bar and other elements. In this sense, the home indicator protects this region of the screen from designers or engineers that are unaware of the functionality of the iPhone X.

The Leftist Mainstream Media Is Now DEFENDING North Korea, Calling For The President Of The United States To Be BANNED From Twitter "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

In yet another example of the insanity that is the new liberal orthodoxy in the age of Trump, multiple mainstream news outlets, as well as numerous left-wing activists, are now publicly calling for Twitter to ban President Trump from their platform for threatening North Korea.

You read that correctly. American media outlets are not only defending North Korea, they are actually claiming that threatening the rogue nuclear nation constitutes hateful speech that must be censored.

Articles in the Washington Post, the New York Times, Slate Magazine, and the Globe and Mail have all called for censoring the president in the last week, ostensibly because of his threats against North Korea but in reality because the legacy media absolutely despises the fact that the president can speak to the American people without going through the establishment gatekeepers first.

The Washington Posts article isnt even labeled an opinion piece, instead the paper called their public call for censoring the democratically elected president an Analysis:

Why has Twitter not taken action against Trumps tweets or banned his account for violating its policies on hateful content and/or violent threats?

In September, you might remember, Twitter defended its decision to keep Trumps account intact when the president tweeted something else that was interpreted as a threat to North Korea.

The New York Times also reported on the calls to censor the president over threatening a nation that literally wants to destroy the entire country. Notice how the reporter is openly worried that nothing Trump says will ever get him banned.

Is there any situation that would cause Twitter to suspend or ban President Trump?

Books As Old Friends "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Books are sensory they have a pleasing look, a comforting smell, a grainy feel, a satisfying weight. You can lend a book, read it everywhere, stow it anywhere, hide treasures in it.  The best-loved books are dog-eared, coffee-stained, and inscribed: carrying memories locked into untold brain networks by all the experiences you had when reading it.

And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it. It will all come into your mind with the very first words Cornelia Funke (Inkheart)

A book works at my speed, comfortable and slow, faster when I want it to be, then slow again. Many of my books are old friends. Jack Lasenby (interview here).

When you read a great book, you dont escape from life, you plunge deeper into it.And for this serious task of imaginative discovery and self-discovery, there is and remains one perfect symbol: the printed book. Julian Barnes

We Need Regenerative Farming, Not Geoengineering "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Geoengineering has been back in the news recently after the US National Research Council endorsed a proposal to envelop the planet in a layer of sulphate aerosols to reduce solar radiation and cool the atmosphere.

The proposal has been widely criticised for possible unintended consequences, such as ozone depletion, ocean acidification and reduced rainfall in the tropics. Perhaps even more troubling, geoengineering is a technological fix that leaves the economic and industrial system causing climate change untouched.

The mindset behind geoengineering stands in sharp contrast to an emerging ecological, systems approach taking shape in the form of regenerative agriculture. More than a mere alternative strategy, regenerative agriculture represents a fundamental shift in our cultures relationship to nature.

Regenerative agriculture comprises an array of techniques that rebuild soil and, in the process, sequester carbon. Typically, it uses cover crops and perennials so that bare soil is never exposed, and grazes animals in ways that mimic animals in nature. It also offers ecological benefits far beyond carbon storage: it stops soil erosion, remineralises soil, protects the purity of groundwater and reduces damaging pesticide and fertiliser runoff.

But these methods are slow, expensive and impractical in feeding a growing population, right?

Wrong. While comprehensive statistics are hard to come by, yields from regenerative methods often exceed conventional yields (see here and here for scientific research, and here and here for anecdotal examples). Likewise, since these methods build soil, crowd out weeds and retain moisture, fertiliser and herbicide inputs can be reduced or eliminated entirely, resulting in higher profits for farmers. No-till methods can sequester as much as a ton of carbon per acre annually (2.5 tons/hectare). In the US alone, that could amount to nearly a quarter of current...

Mans Life Savings Stolen from Hardware Wallet Supplied by a Reseller "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Man Has Cryptocurrency Stolen from Hardware Wallet Supplied by a Reseller

Hardware wallets are regarded as one of the safest means of storing bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Each device grants the holder possession of their private keys and adds a PIN code plus other tamer-proof tech for enhanced security. Hardware wallets are not impregnable, however, as one British man found to his peril after purchasing the device on Ebay.

Redditor moodyrocket is coming to terms with having his life savings wiped out this week, after $34,000 of crypto was stolen from his newly acquired Nano Ledger hardware wallet. The device was compromised, not due to any flaws in its design, but thanks to a man in the middle attack that saw the reseller insert their own recovery seed.

British Bank Says NO to Crypto Transactions from Gibraltar

Less than a week since it started licensing blockchain businesses, Gibraltar has received bad news from the United Kingdom. A leading British bank has refused to process orders from crypto firms based in the overseas territory. Gibraltan banks are now on the lookout for another UK banking partner.

The negative reaction to Gibraltars decision to seduce the crypto sector came from the Royal Bank of Scotland. Its partner, the Gibraltar International Bank, has received notification that RBS will no longer process transactions connected to firms dealing with cryptocurrencies. The Scottish bank has effectively closed the clearing system for companies licensed under the new Digital Ledger Technology Regulatory Framework implemented by Gibraltar.

The new DTL legislation went into effect on January 1, after Gibraltar Parliament approved a bill last month designed to update its financial regulations. Along with online betting and gaming, financial services provide a great deal of Gibraltars domestic product and income.

Foxhole Homes "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Foxhole Homes prototype tire bale earthship for veterans

Foxhole Homes prototype tire bale earthship for veterans


Sustainable Housing and Community for Veterans in Need. These homes will be made with large bales of compressed recycled tires.

Q. What is a Foxhole Home?
A. It is an off-grid home built from recycled and repurposed materials, originally inspired by Earthship Biotecture. We have applied those principles to creating spaces that are easier to build and are adjusted for climate and region. For simple models we can build for as little as $20 a square foot in material costs.

Q. How will you pound that many tires?
A. We wont. We are working toward building with tire bales. We can place the bales for a normal size home in a single day. This will expedite the process and recycle exponentially more tires.

Q. How much does one cost?
A. Thats a trick question. We can build a tiny house with limited systems for as little as a few thousand dollars in materials. Our first demonstration build cost under $6,000 to complete with volunteer labor. A better way to look at it is a range of prices. If you re-purpose a lot, have simple systems and do all the work yourself you can build for around $20 per square foot. If you use fancier materials, robust/redundant systems and pay someone else to do the work it could be $200 per square foot.

Q. How is Foxhole different from so many other veteran housing programs?
A. Most veteran housing programs provide temporary shelter while veterans get back on their feet. This typically ends up being handouts, and does not address how they ended up in that situation to begin with. Foxhole recognizes that, for many veterans, their new normal does not allow for a 9 to 5 job, so we plan to create a community structure with long term housing stability without giving it away. Veterans will earn their homes through sweat equity and continue to contribute to the community in the capacities they are capable.

Q. What will veterans do for work?
A. Anything they want. But the community will be designed for cottage industry in agriculture, trades and arts. Our goal is to provide employment that the people enjoy and find meaningful, that continues to work...

Column: Pagans Prepare for a New Womens March "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

As a minority community, many American Pagans met the beginning of 2017 with trepidation, with the inauguration of a new president who seemed hostile to values that many Pagans hold dear. Between the new presidents recorded admissions of sexual assault and misogyny, and the evangelical Christian movement had propelled him to power, there was fear that the new administration would roll back gains made in social issues such as womens and LGBTQ+ rights, and freedom from religious persecution.

In this environment, one day after the inauguration of President Trump, the Womens March on Washington burst onto the international scene. In a well-coordinated protest effort, millions of women and men in iconic pink pussy hats flooded cities all over the world to stand up for what they saw is inalienable human rights that were under threat. The Washington, D.C. march famously attracted more attendees than the inauguration itself, and that pattern repeated itself in cities across the U.S. and, indeed, all over the world. Ultimately, it was the largest coordinated protest in U.S. history and one of the largest in world history, according to organizers.

[Pixabay.]

Now, as the anniversary of the original march is approaching, organizers are planning a second protest for Jan. 20. It remains to be seen if the second march will be able to attract the same energy and interest as the original, or if it can capitalize on the same fear and anger that propelled the original. However, many of the marchs original supporters within the Pagan community are planning to attend in order to keep the momentum of the 2017 march rolling.

The energy of the 2017 protest inspired many Pagans to support the movement. Rev. Erica Baron, a Temple of Witchcraft high priestess and Unitarian Universalist minister, attended the 2017 march in Poughkeepsie, New York. There was a certain energy, she states, although the moment felt very grim. She remembers, I was happy to be among so many people who shared my values, which felt very much under attack, and still do.

Happy New Year! "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

2018 is going to be a fun fun year. And to better prepare yourself for all the merrymaking here is a calendar of some of the more delightful things to look forward to.

February 16: The United States bans entry to the country of all people except white Christian and Jewish citizens of Canada, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and Israel.

February 18: Congress passes a law that requires all new citizens to submit an essay in excellent English about how brilliant Donald J. Trump is, how devoted they are to him, what a huge success hes been, how hes going to make America great again, and how modest a man he is.

March 1: The Mueller Investigation announces the discovery of a citizen of Vladivostok, Russia who on July 16, 2016 wrote an email to his cousin in Baltimore expressing his dismay at all the violence that had been unleashed in the Middle East following the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, which, he wrote, was instigated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Such interference in an American election will not be tolerated, declared Muellers office.

March 6: The government of El Salvador is overthrown in a coup. The United States blames Russia.

March 15: Members of Ukraines neo-Nazi parties, which hold several high positions in the US-supported government, goose-step through the center of Kiev in full German Storm Trooper uniforms, carrying giant swastika flags, shouting Heil Hitler, and singing the Horst Wessel song. When left-wingers attempt to block them police intervene to arrest the left-wingers. Not a word of this appears in any American mainstream media. President Trump tweets there are lots of bad people on both sides.

March 26: The government of Paraguay is overthrown in a coup. The United States blames Russia.

On the 7th of January 1946, Moisei Yakovlevich Ginzburg, one of the most celebrated constructivist architects in Soviet Russia, died in Moscow. He was the founder of the OSA Group (Organisation of Contemporary Architects), which promoted principles of constructivist architecture   a style combining advanced technology and engineering with socialist ideas.

In 1928, OSA established The Standardization Section of the Construction Committee (Stroikom RSFSR), the leader of which was Ginzburg himself. The same year OSA produced five types of housing units with a plan of building them in various sites of the country. The housing units, developed by Ginzburgs Stroikom group, were actually individual apartments of the so-called transitional type, intended to help the inhabitants transcend their old habits, overcome their previous selves by voluntary measures According to Ginzburg: It is impossible at present to compel the occupants of a building to live collectively, as some of us have intended to do in the past, usually with n...

I saw mythical B&Q shop assistant in Margate branch claims customer "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Wildlife watchers have descended on B&Qs Margate branch, following reports that a customer claims to have seen of one of their now almost mythical shop assistants. A BBC Natural History Unit camera crew is also camped out in the car park hoping to capture exclusive footage for David Attenboroughs next project.

The shopper, Will Roberts, speaking on lunchtime news said: I had gone in there and had been desperately wandering the aisles for over half an hour looking for new light bulbs. As usual there was no-one on the shop floor to direct me to where I might find them, and by now the tills and unmanned customer service desk were almost half a mile away. But suddenly I thought my luck had changed when I spotted a person I took to be a shop assistant nearby. However it was nothing more than a false alarm as it turned out to be a woman from Araldite merchandising the adhesives display.

Id just given up all hope and was trying to figure out the way to the exit when I suddenly spotted a teenager in an orange apron about one hundred yards away;, continued Mr Roberts. I immediately gestured towards him to get assistance. But my sudden movement must have spooked him. He stood bolt upright, looked around in a startled manner, sniffed the air then darted behind a rack of bathroom fittings. I ran to the end of the aisle where hed been standing, but just as quickly as hed appeared he disappeared into thin air. The only thing to be seen was a tumbleweed blowing down the paint aisle.

Chris Packham explains; I can confirm that B&Q shop assistants do exist, but because of global warming and zero hours contracts theyre down to no more than three breeding pairs in captivity at a secret location. So theyre very rare nowadays. It would be great to see one in real life, of course it would, but Id say Mr Roberts is mistaken here. To be honest hed be far more likely to see a T-Rex or Dodo.

The first modern breech-loading rifled gun is a breech-loader invented by Martin von Wahrendorff with a cylindrical breech plug secured by a horizontal wedge in 1837. In the 1850s and 1860s, Whitworth and Armstrong invented improved breech loading artillery.

Visa Suspends All Bitcoin Debit Cards Issued by WaveCrest "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

There are quite a few issues in the world of cryptocurrency debit cards. More specifically, Visa seemingly suspended nearly all debit card providers. This includes the likes of Bitwala, Wirex, TenX, and even CoinsBan. All of these companies rely on WaveCrest as a card issuer and their partnership with Visa. It is evident, things are not looking all that great for the affected companies. Whether or not this issue can be rectified in the near future, remains highly unlikely.

Using a Bitcoin debit card has been pretty fun in Europe. It allows users to spend cryptocurrency at virtually all locations. Unfortunately, this also means none of the companies suffering from this suspension can provide proper services. It may very well be the final nail in the coffin for companies who solely focus on this business model. Thousands of users are affected by this ordeal, to much dismay of cryptocurrency enthusiasts worldwide.

Visa Terminates WaveCrest Membership

Users can still access the funds stored on the cards, though. However, they will no longer be able to use the cards themselves. Visa has forced companies to suspend all cards as of January 5th. There is no indication WaveCrest will be able to reverse this situation in the future. They are following the guidelines of Visa, which is not something to be trifled with. This is another crackdown against cryptocurrencies, by the look of things.

Surprisingly, it seems this problem affects all WaveCrest prepaid cards in circulation. While the company is cryptocurrency-friendly, they do have other clients as well. It is evident this situation is a big problem which will need to be addressed sooner or later. Visa has allegedly discovered some compliance issues when it comes to Wavecrest. As a result, their services have to be determined immediately and indefinitely.

For now, it remains unclear what triggered this decision exactly. Visa will probably have their reasons for this decision, which is not a good thing by any means. It seems an isolated incident which affects only Wavecrest and all programs in conjunction with this company. It is a very unfortunate situation which opens the doors for new players to enter the market. For now, using virtually any Bitcoin debit card in Europe is impossible/

Former Reagan Economic Adviser: Are Whites Being Setup For Genocide?! "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

i-am-so-sick-white-guys-coloring-book-640x480

Identity Politics has responded with outrage against People Magazines choice of white male country singer Blake Shelton as sexiest man in the world.

According to adherents of Identity Politics, the choice indicates that People Magazine is itself racist and part of the white supremacy movement to elavate white people above people of color.

The choice is doubly outrageous because, according to a writer in Salon, it reinforces and celebrates toxic white male sexuality and elevates a white man to a position of popular acclaim.

Every white person needs to read this article  http://www.unz.com/article/the-end-of-white-celebrity/ to understand how they are being demonized and marginalized to the point of oblivion.

By focusing primarily on white heterosexual males, Identity Politics tries to split white women off from white men by the use of the pejorative misogynist, but, as the article reports, white women, such as Taylor Swift, are also publicly demonized for their whiteness.

Reading this article in The Unz Review reminded me of an article I read last November in a Texas university newspaper that declared white DNA to be an abomination. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/11/30/texas-student-newspaper-blasted-over-anti-white-your-dna-is-abomination-column.html

Anyone who declared homosexuals, blacks, or Jews to be an abomination would be instantly fired, sued, charged with hate crimes and driven so deep into the ground that they would never reemerge.

The article in the student newspaper was a bit too much for Texas and produced a furor of its own. Lost in the furor was the realization that the writer was correctly interpreting the Identity Politics that today defines the liberal/progressive/left.

Undeniable Corruption: Bundy Attorney Who Argued For Clients Release Faces Disbarment Hearing Law Violating Prosecutor In Bundy Ranch Case Keeps Job "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

bundy

If this doesnt show you how crooked the federal judicial system is, nothing will.

Ammon Bundys attorney in the Oregon Malheur Wildlife Refuge case, Marcus Mumford, had criminal charges filed against him after he was tased and tackled by federal marshalls for simply arguing for his clients release in court.

Listen to his account of what happened.

Judge Anna Brown said that Mumford was issuing a threat, and that is why he was charged.

Back in April 2017, The Oregonian reported:

Attorney Marcus Mumford, who last month had criminal charges dismissed against him stemming from his arrest on the day his client Ammon Bundy was acquitted of conspiracy in federal court in Portland, now faces more legal challenges.

Oregons Chief U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman is seeking to revoke Mumfords ability to practice law in any federal court in the District of Oregon, a rare move.

In a court filing Wednesday, Mosman cited Mumfords repeated failures or refusals to observe court rulings in the Bundy trial last fall, repeated instances of Mumford arguing with the judge with a raised voice and sometimes in the jurys presence, inappropriate commentary on a witness in the presence of a jury, his arguing for Bundys release from trial after his acquittal without a good-faith basis to believe that the pre-existing custody order from Nevada was not still in effect and his yelling at the court when he objected to the trial judges rulings.

Mosman also alleged that Mumford failed to timely disclose to the trial judge that Rick Koerber, who served as part of Bundys defense team, was also a client of Mumfords in an unrelated, criminal proceeding.  In 2014, a federal judge in Utah tossed out 18 charges against Koerber that had alleged he operated a giant Ponzi scheme through his real estate company, but Koerber was recently re-indicted on 18 charges in January.

The judge filed 25 exhibits with his order, mostly transcripts from Bundys trial to support his move to revoke Mumfords admission to practice in federal court in Oregon.

For Mumfords part, he simply responded...

Police State On Steroids: Sheriff Makes Disgusting Video Bragging About Using a Small Army to Bust Kids With Weed "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

sheriff-video-696x366

The Clay County Sheriffs Department just used a small army of troops and MRAPs to bust some kids with a little weed and they are bragging about it on video.

Orange Park, FL The Clay County Sheriffs Department is receiving heavy backlash on social media this week after making a video of a SWAT raid in which hundreds of thousands of dollars of police resources were used to bust a handful of kids who had some marijuana.

In the ominous video that looks more like a terrorist organization threatening its enemies than public servants solving crimes,  Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels taunts his massive militarized police army and how it was just used to kidnap a bunch of young people for having marijuana.

Masked men carrying AR-15s, multiple Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles equipped with battering rams, and what looked like an entire platoon of tactical soldiers were all dispatched Friday morning to the home to serve a narcotics search warrant.

In the video, Daniels claims his raid netted him 15 arrests. However, according to arrest records, only five young adults were charged.

As the copaganda video begins, the person filming is at the other end of the street and filming the entire scene. There are more than a dozen kids sitting on the sidewalk in disbelief at the massive army that was just deployed to bust them for having marijuana.

Are you kidding me? one of the detainees says as the cop walks by filming them.

As the person filming walks down the street, it looks like a scene out of Fallujah, Iraq. However, these soldiers werent going after dangerous foreign terrorists or even domestic child traffickers, or murders, or anything of the sortthey were going after kids selling a plant.

Standing between two MRAPs and in front of a small army of masked men is the Sheriff who is waiting patiently for the cameraman to arrive so he can gloat to the world about using hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of taxpayer money to arrest some kids with pot.

I say it time and time again, Daniels said in the video. And folks dont seem to believe what Im saying. As the sheriff of Clay County, Im telling you that if you want to commit crimes in the county, youve got options: You can stop what youre doing. You can le...

5 Biblical Prophecies Fulfilled in 2017 and 5 More Expected in 2018

The year 2017 was packed with what many describe as remarkable or unprecedented events. Donald Trumps presidential inauguration and his latest announcement that he sees Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish people are considered by believers to be prophetic signs that the world is coming ever closer to the Messianic area. Breaking Israel News looks back on these prophetic moments and suggests five further prophecies that could be fulfilled in 2018.

In 2017, Jerusalem became a place of assembly, a House of Prayer for all Nations, Jews and non-Jews alike, precisely as prophesied in Zechariah. Tourism to Jerusalem skyrocketed, with arrivals climbing by 25 percent compared to the 2016, and bringing in $5.8 billion of revenue. Such assembly was particularly evident during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, when tens of thousands of Christian tourists arrived to Jerusalem. READ MORE

Toxic relationship habits most people think are normal "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Are unhealthy relationship habits hard-wired into our culture?

We grow up in broken families with parents that certainly display these toxic habits, and then unknowingly repeat them.

Weve been taught to romanticize love, thinking that only romantic love has any value, never understanding that true love allows for the creation of all other loves romantic, familial, loving friendship, etc.

We are programmed to objectify others, so that this experience of true love is unavailable to us were too busy seeing our partner as an asset or a loss to view them as a beautifully flawed human being, capable of reflecting our own self-love back to us.

We have been taught to engage in codependence instead of interdependence, and then act surprised when our need to be needed doesnt translate into the experience of real love.

Whats at the bottom of all these behaviors? How can we recognize these patterns in order to change them? Is there any hope for experiencing a fulfilling romantic relationship?

Self-help literature doesnt help much. Men and women arent from different planets. But they do speak a different language. Though we cant over-generalize gender roles, we can look at how theyve been eroded, along with the family unit to further complicate our experience of love.

If you think this is all unrelated to love, youd be mistaken. The very fabric of our society is fomented with toxic habits that eat away at our ability to relate to others from distant neighbors in other nations to the lover sleeping in bed right next to us.

Fortunately, theres been a lot of psychological research into healthy and happy relationships the past few decades and there are some general principles that keep popping up consistently that most people are unaware of or dont follow, possibly because theyve never been taught the basics of creating a loving relationship and certainly it hasnt been exemplified in their parents or their leaders.

Surprisingly, some of these principles go against what is traditionally considered romantic or normal in a relationship. So, think about what you read below, and see if you werent taught to be toxic.

The good news is that you can unteach these habits to yourself, too. Though there are a boatload of toxic habits, below are five common ones to start to unravel.

1. Toxic Habit: The False Idea that Another Person Can Bring You Happiness

The toxic advice that you deserve to be happy by finding the perfect person is extremely damaging. Aside from overt sexual, physical or mental abuse, we dont need to run away and find a better partner to experience happiness. Our happiness is only withheld from us because we arent...

Patriot Mall: When Real Estate Meets Cryptocurrency Investments "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Learn how a Russian crypto developer is heralding a pioneering local project.

Many exciting new blockchain projects are surfacing throughout the world, due to this market gaining momentum on a global scale.

Russian developer Crypto Patriot, for instance, is collecting funds to build Patriot Mall, a trade and entertainment mall in Tyumen.

This endeavor is especially unique because it is not purely digital, but it relates to developments in the physical work, spanning different industries such as real estate, commerce and more.

The Crypto Patriot team plans to construct the aforementioned mall with the help of investors, who would fund the project by acquiring PPMT tokens and touch dividends from the lease of shopping space or by selling their tokens on crypto exchanges.

Patriot Mall will become the first project of its kind in the Eastern Administrative District of Tyumen, which has never had a trading facility hosting shops of different sectors. For this reason, the team is confident that the project will draw a notable fraction of buyers, as well as leaseholders.

The physical space the mall will occupy amounts to 35,194.3 square meters. The project creators concluded partnerships with most potential leaseholders. The ground floor of the mall building will host a farmers market, and the organizers have signed an agreement with local agricultural companies. The company sponsoring the project has already invested $5 million, but to finish the construction works, it plans to issue internal tokens and use the ICO to collect 9,450 ETH tokens. The founders of the project aim for the mall to become functional a year after raising the necessary funds. As for the first dividends, investors will be able to receive them as early as three months following the inauguration of the shopping mall.

The most vital component of the Crypto Patriot initiative is the introduction of the Patriot Project Mall Tokens (PPMT). These tokens will be linked to the total leasable area of the mall: every PPMT will amount to 0.01 square meters. Token holders will retain the rights to their allotted part of the leasable area and will receive dividends from the lease.

The originators of the project assert that the investment model is hybrid, being a blend of stock investment and real estate financing).

The tokens will be dispensed one time only, through the Ethereum cryptocurrency platform, with a total of 1,5 mln tokens.

99.5% of such tokens will be distributed during the crowdfunding process, while 0.5% will serve bounty programs. A single Ethereum token will be exchangeable for 140 PPMT, with a system of bonuses related to the acquisition of tokens in place since the pre-sale, which sta...

Bitcoin Atom Wants to Make Cryptocurrency Transfers Truly Peer-to-Peer "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Satoshi Nakamotos Bitcoin white paper envisioned the use of an electronic money that would be purely peer-to-peer. This means no third parties would be involved in any wayonline payments would go directly from one party to another without any interference. Though this is how Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies were designed, for the most part, this isnt how theyre exchanged.

This is because a large number of cryptocurrency transactions go through exchanges like Bitfinix, Bithumb, and Bittrex. Alone, these three exchanges account for over $12 billion in 24-hour trading volume. The rise in the value of many cryptocurrencies has seen a surge in trading volumes over the past couple of months, with one major drawbackexchanges are becoming increasingly more centralized and increasingly more powerful. The cryptocurrency community, of all people, should be wary of the dangers of centralization.

One project, Bitcoin Atom (BCA), is working on a network that will allow users to exchange digital assets in a truly decentralized manner.

The platform will use atomic swaps (AS) and integrated hash time-locked contracts (HTLCs) to give users freedom from any intermediaries or centralized bodies like exchanges. The BCA network allows parties to interact and transact directlythe original purpose of cryptocurrencies and decentralized blockchains.

Exchanges like OKEx, and Coinomi already agreed to verify and make BCA tradable when the fork occurs in January.

How Do Atomic Swaps and HTLCs Work?

Atomic swaps permit two users operating on different blockchains to directly exchange cryptocurrencies through a completely trustless process. Both parties agree to the terms before the transactionsfor example, fifty Litecoins for one Bitcoinand use their private keys to sign a copy of the transaction. Once the signatures are in place, the exchange happens immediately.

Atomic swaps use hash time-locked contracts (HTLCs) that require the two entities to fulfill the trades requirements. HTLCs mandate that the parties independently generate cryptographic proofs of payment to confirm reception of the exchanged funds in a given amount of time. If either party cant confirm the transaction in the stated time frame, the coins are returned to the original sender. Thus, atomic swaps and HTLCs allow users to transact directly without the need of any middlemen.

Venezuela Prepares for the Launch of the Petro "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

It would appear some details regarding Venezuelas own cryptocurrency have come to light. We already know it goes by the name of Petro. Moreover, this is an oil-backed currency. It is also a response to the worsening financial crisis in Venezuela today. It seems President Maduro has ordered the issuance of 100 million Petros moving forward. An interesting decision, considering the whitepaper has yet to be revealed.

Everyone knows Venezuela is not a fun place to live right now. Growing inflation and no viable solutions create a very uneasy ecosystem. Issuing a national cryptocurrency seems to be the only option left worth exploring. President Nicolas Maduro has confirmed the Petro will come to market in the next few months. So far, no one knows the exact specifics of this currency, at least on the technical side. The value of this currency is backed by the countrys vast oil reserves.

Introducing the Petro in Venezuela

It would appear the first batch of Petro coins will be issued soon. A supply of 100 million Petros will be brought into circulation. This number is not chosen randomly either Instead, it is based on national wealth. Every Petro has the same value as a barrel of Venezuelan oil. An interesting prospect, as it should ultimately inject a lot of money into this new currency. The big question is whether or not there will be any interest by foreigners to obtain this new currency.

It is also expected the think tank behind the Petro currency will convene next week. It will also be the first national meeting of this new currencys miners. For now, we still have no idea how this currency will be mined exactly. After all, since it is backed by oil reserves, there seems no reason to mine anything. A better option is to create batches of this currency like Tether does. For now, we have to speculate as to how things will play out for Venezuelas new currency.

When the whitepaper is unveiled, things will become a lot clearer. For now, no one in Venezuela knows what to expect from the Petro exactly. There are still a lot of questions which need to be answered, to say the least. It would also be good to know which blockchain will be used to issue this new currency. A private ledger seems to be the most obvious choice in this regard. How all of this will play out, has yet to be determined. Its certainly an interesting development to keep an eye on.

Strong quakes Hit San Francisco And Mount St. Helens And Experts Warn They May Be Foreshocks For Something Larger "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Strong quakes Hit San Francisco And Mount St. Helens And Experts Warn They May Be Foreshocks For Something Larger

(By Michael Snyder) Just when it seemed like things may be settling down, two very unusual earthquakes have hit the west coast within the past couple of days. A 4.4 magnitude quake struck Berkeley, California just prior to 3 AM on Thursday morning, and a 3.9 magnitude earthquake hit Mount St. Helens in Washington state on Wednesday. Overall, there have been 68 earthquakes in the vicinity of Mount St. Helens since New Years Day, and there have been a total of 629 earthquakes in the state of California within the last 30 days.

Could it be possible that all of this activity is leading up to a historic seismic disaster on the west coast? The 4.4 magnitude earthquake along the Hayward fault very early on Thursday jolted people out of bed all over the San Francisco area A strong 4.4 magnitude earthquake has rattled the Bay Area shortly before 3 a.m. USGS is reporting the quake was centered in Berkeley. On KRON4s real-time earthquake map it shows the epicenter. The quake struck at 2:39 a.m. and was centered near the Claremont hotel. The earthquake had a preliminary depth of 8 miles, according to USGS. This wasnt a soft and gentle earthquake that everyone kind of laughs about after it is over. READ MORE

The Price of Craftsmanship and the Zen of Protocol Design "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Having read the comments of a former business partner of mine, which will be addressed later in a dedicated blog post, Ive decided to draft my thoughts on how IOHK approaches the design of Cardano and by extension all the cryptocurrencies it works on. As this space has become polarized with the politics of personal destruction, financial incentives to lie and a stunning lack of respect for critical analysis, Ill try not to mention project names- just my opinion on what good design principles ought to look like. I freely admit, I could be misguided or stuck in my ways.


First, we have to define what is the point of our labor. What goals are we trying to achieve and who needs the solution? Its stunning to me how we are littered with solutions seeking problems connected to a token actively trading. Decentralized computation, storage and other services need an audience in order to be useful and they need a necessary edge in order to survive beyond hype.


For example, replicated computation that is byzantine resistant is what Ethereum brough to the table. We freely admitted that market demand was unclear and that use cases would materialize after we launched (the field of dreams gamble). Whether those uses are economically viable or optimal, was and still is an open question being explored and forcing enhancements.


What is undeniably valuable was the beginning of a conversation about outsourcing computation in a way where the server couldnt be trusted; either...

The latest earthquake hit in the west of the Middle Eastern country in the same area that was starting to recover after more than 600 people were killed in the region in November. A number of aftershocks affected the area after the initial earthquake. The earthquake hit Irans western province of Kermanshah. The semiofficial ISNA news agency says the Kurdish town of Sarpol-e Zahab, about 520 kilometers west of Tehran, was near the epicenter of the quake.

According to the state medias report, the earthquake affected an area of eight kilometers (five miles) and injured eight people.

Blockchain Technologies Will Bring Incredible Opportunities for Using Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Artificial intelligence promises to transform our lives in just a few years. Alas, the healthcare industry currently lags far behind in terms of using AI systems. The reason is a lack of infrastructure to bring together healthcare big data owners, AI developers, and consumers into a single ecosystem.

Healthcare AI developers spend 9599 percent of their budget to buy or license healthcare big data to train their neural networks. In most cases, startup companies specializing in that area can afford to buy only relatively small amounts of data, paying millions of dollars for them. As a result, their neural networks are usually undertrained and can detect only a few diseases.

Skychain

Skychain Global will build the necessary infrastructure based on blockchain technologies. Its key idea is using smart contracts to facilitate interactions between healthcare big data owners, AI developers, and consumers. AI developers joining the Skychain ecosystem wont need to buy big data, which will reduce their neural network training costs by a factor of 100. Each trained neural network will be locked forever in a smart contract and will be only available for use as a service. Each consumer using a neural network will pay a per-use fee, which will be automatically split between its developer, all the data providers whose data was used to train the neural network, and any other involved parties.

Its a revolutionary approach that will reduce the healthcare AI training costs by a factor of 100. The opportunity to monetize healthcare big data will draw data owners to the Skychain ecosystem. As a result, there will be more highly accurate neural networks, which will increase the value of Skychain for the end users, that is, patients and doctors.

Skychain pre-ICO

Skychain Global is pre-selling its tokens, SGH. The pre-sale ends on January 7, 2018. The tokens are currently sold at $0.50. During the ICO phase, they will be sold at $1. Then the SGH tokens will be converted into Skychains internal currency, Skychain Global Coin (SGC).

The important thing is that the project is based on existing, proven approaches and technologies in the area of artificial intelligence and big data. Skychain intends to create a data market using blockchain technologies and smart contracts, so that big data can be provided as a service for AI deep learning.

The future of artificial intelligence in healthcare

Currently we are only talking about medical diagnoses made by AI systems on par with the best doctors in their field of medicine. But accumulating vast amounts of healthcare big data in the Skychain machine learning ecosystem promises to bring unprecedented opportunities in the future. For example, artificial intelligence...

CHRYSOS is More Profitable than Other Cryptocurrency Platforms "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

New Cryptocurrencies are mushrooming in the market. Most of them are similar in terms of what they offer. They are mostly currency wallet with different names. CHRYSOS stands apart from them. It offers something different which are genuinely unique. Truly, it looks different in the gathering of other Cryptocurrencies in the market.

CHRYSOS is totally new blockchain rather than based on Ethereum platform. It is using hybrid mining algorithm of POS (proof of stake) and POW (proof of work) to generate more genuine and accurate consensus. From the algorithm point of view, this methodology to reach a consensus is new and unique in the blockchain technology market. Adoption of this robust and feature-rich algorithm keeps CHRYSOS ahead of the competition in the Cryptocurrency market.

CHRYSOS blockchain is a decentralized public ledger which uses cryptography to encrypt the data to secure the whole blockchain. Every data block gets synchronized with each data transaction and follows the consensus. This makes the whole blockchain highly secured and keeps hackers way apart to steal or attack any data block. This is the reason the world has fallen in love with blockchain technology.

CHRYSOS blockchain uses forging methodology to record data transacted in the public ledger. Forging is different from mining. Forging make consensus or validate the data transactions instead of relying on miners each time. CHRYSOS platform provides high-speed peer-to-peer transactions to send money to others, remittances, payment processing etc. The platform is technically ready to perform thousands of data transactions in a fraction of a second. This is due to the architecture of the platform and low latency APIs used. As data storage is decentralized, the uptime becomes hundred percent. Above all, the low transaction fees at the platform make it coin user-friendly in all the way.

Besides the P2P coin transfers, investors can participate in the lending program the platform offers. Investment in the lending program is done by using the coins available in the wallet of the user. Lending programs offer a high interest rate on the deposited coins. The return on investment (ROI) is paid every day. These returns can be re-invested in the lending program or can be staked in the wallet. Staking, keeping the coins in a wallet, for a specific period also pays a lucrative dividend.

CHRYSOS is going to launch lending on 27th Jan 2018. Anyone can start subscribing to the lending program with their CHR Coins from 27th Jan on the lending portal.

CHRYSOS have its own internal exchange where anyone can buy or sell CHR coins. It is also listing CHR c...

Innovative Cryptocurrency Exchange Bitmora Launched Crowdfunding Campaign Last December "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitmora is building a service that will allow users to globally exchange cryptocurrency and vote on the framework upon which the exchange is built.

Cryptocurrency exchange platform Bitmora is set to revolutionize the way the digital currency exchange world operates. The company aims to build a one of a kind trading platform that will offer low fees, enterprise-grade security, and a unique voting system designed to put the future of cryptocurrency exchanges in the hands of activists and users alike. Instead of an ICO, Bitmora launched a crowdfunding campaign on Dec. 1. Bitmoras cryptocurrency exchange is on schedule to launch in Feb. 2018.

Bitmora aims to raise $600,000 during the two months of the campaign. Participants who invest as little as $10 will be guaranteed a monthly payout in accordance to the exchanges volume during its first 18 months. Participant tiers and voting power are dependent on how much they invest into the campaign. Bitmora executives will put aside 30 percent of the monthly revenue in each of the 18 months for participants investing during the funding campaign.

An article released on Coin Desk in late November noted that the total market capitalization for the cryptocurrency market has exceeded $300 billion for the first time. The article referenced data from CoinMarketCap.com that showed that the market capitalization for all cryptocurrencies is currently at roughly $300.5 billion. Cryptocurrency exchanges are currently a $100 billion market.

As the demand for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and altcoins skyrockets to an all-time high, the majority of exchanges have made little to no improvements, says Colton Brister, chairman and CEO for Bitmora. Forced to trade on dated engines with poor security and slow customer support systems, the users of these exchanges have come to recognize a need for improvement. Bitmora is being built to revamp the exchange sector in a way that nobody has ever seen before. Everything from our engine to our interface will set new standards in what is already an out-of-touch market.

Bitmora will host a fully-functional mobile application, around-the-clock phone support staff, and an established user voting system to provide users an exceptional trading experience. More than 40 cryptocurrency pairs will be able to be traded on the platform, with margin trading available on the first day. Bitmoras network and servers will be scalable and will have multiple failover engines in the event of a DDoS attack.

PMID:  J Cancer Prev. 2017 Mar ;22(1):22-32. Epub 2017 Mar 30. PMID: 28382283 Abstract Title:  Protective Effect of White-fleshed Peach (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch) on Chronic Nicotine-induced Toxicity. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Nicotine is a major toxic component of tobacco smoke and has been recognized as a risk factor to induce oxidative tissue damage, which is a precursor to cardiovascular diseases, lung-related diseases, and cancers. Peaches (Prunus persica) have been used for the treatment of degenerative disorders, such as hypermenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, and infertility in Asian countries. In this study, we investigated the effects of white-fleshed peach on the excretion of nicotine metabolites and 1-hydroxypyrene in smokers and chronic nicotine-induced tissue damages in mice.METHODS: The concentrations of cotinine and 1-hydroxypyrene were measured in urine of smokers before or after intake of white-fleshed peaches. In addition, ICR mice were injected with nicotine (5 mg/kg body weight) and then orally administered with white-fleshed peach extracts (WFPE) (250 or 500 mg/kg body weight) for 36 days. The oxidative stress parameters and the activities of antioxidant enzymes were measured in liver and kidney tissues. Also, histological changes and nitrotyrosine expression were assessed.RESULTS: Intake of white-fleshed peaches increased the urinary concentration of nicotine metabolites and 1-hydroxypyrene in 91.67% and 83.33% of smokers, respectively. WFPE decreased the malondialdehyde levels and recovered the activities of antioxidant enzymes in nicotine-injected mice. In addition, WFPE inhibited nitrotyrosine expression and inflammatory responses in the liver, kidney, and lung tissues of nicotine-treated mice.CONCLUSIONS: White-fleshed peaches may increase the metabolism of toxic components in tobacco smoke in smokers and protect normal tissues against nicotine toxicity in mice. Therefore, supplementation of white-fleshed peaches might be beneficial to smokers.

How to use API-first platforms to build your websites faster "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Photo by Chris Becker on Unsplash

Tools like Jekyll, Hugo, or Hexo have popularized static websites in recent years. The so-called JAMstack allows you to deliver highly dynamic content with no back-end layer at all. Additionally, developer-first APIs enabled front-end developers to build even more complex functionality. This they can do without leaving the browser sandbox. Lets see how you can leverage modern API-first platforms to ship a solid prototype of a business application. The approach presented in this article might become a useful asset in your solution architects toolbox.

The tutorial consists of 2 parts:

  • The first will show you how to design the application to get a so-called happy path. Well build a semi-automated prototype you can use to get user feedback on a demo session
  • The second explains how to step up the business processes automation so that the app can handle early traffic in production

Whats an API-first platform?

As Ed Shelley from ChartMogul describes it, there are a few rather hard-to-miss features of such a service:

  • There is NO user interface (GUI). Or in some cases, there is a GUI but its secondary to the core product.
  • Interaction with the service is through a web-based API. This is a programmatic way of connecting services and transferring data across the web in a machine-readable way.
  • The value of the service is usually in the data thats delivered (through the API).
  • Pricing is often usage-based, meaning that the cost is based on the number of requests made to the API.

Basically, what they offer is a set of building blocks, usually in the SaaS model. These you can use to construct a specific functionality with less code. One of the first and probably most notable representatives of this is Stripe.Stripe helps process payments. However, you mightve heard about other big fish recently whove emerged from the market, like Twilio or Algolia.

Why use an API-first platform?

Lets start with a small disclaimer. This tutoria...

Copytrack Raises Over $2.5 Million, Surpasses Pre-Sale ICO Goals "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

COPYTRACK, following a highly successful crowdsale, has raised a total of more than $2.55 million in the ongoing presale. The presale, that went live with a goal of selling 5 million tokens will end on January 10, 2018.

The token sale has gained a lot of attention, thanks to the huge potential offered by the platform in keeping the copyright violations on the internet in check.

How COPYTRACK Disrupts the Industry

COPYTRACK is the market leader in protecting the image rights, uncovering image theft and managing the licensing for photographers, publishers and news agencies online. The company provides the start-to-end service that guides the users through a complicated world of online image theft. Since last three years, COPYTRACK has helped the community to claim image rights in more than 50,000 unsolicited use cases.

COPYTRACKs global Copyright Register takes digital copyright registration to a new level. The platform intends to offer solutions for the major challenges of digital content copyright as well as monetization since they are still present today. By developing an open, transparent and decentralized copyright register using blockchain technology, COPYTRACK enables owners to register, monitor and monetize their work without involving any intermediary. This makes the multi-billion-dollar digital licensing industry more fair and transparent towards both buyers and sellers.

The ecosystem works using a unique image tracking engine leveraged on advanced technologies like Artificial Intelligence that searches users images online. Users can sort through their results and claim any copyright infringements instantly. Once COPYTRACKs legal team is notified of the claim, it starts the enforcement process at once.

About the Pre-sale & Main ICO

The pre-sale for COPYTRACK Token (CPY) successfully sold a total of 4 million CPY so far. Following the successful pre-sale, the main ICO will start from January 10, 2018, and will end by February 10, 2018. With more than 4 million tokens already bought by the investors, COPYTRACK has raised a total of 2,550 Ethereum, which is at present equivalent to around 2.55 Million USD. The unsold tokens will be destroyed after the end of the token sale.

According to the spokespersons of the company, this is a huge recognition of COPYTRACKs vision: to solve a deep-rooted challenge of copyright violation and offer both owners and users a transparent, fair and decentralized solution to licensing images. The COPYTRACK Team expresses its appreciation and thankfulness to all the contributors for supporting the platform.

Whats Next?

The ICO will offer 60% of all CPY for public sale, while 20% tokens wi...

What is a Sovereign? How You Lost Your Kingdom of God "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

http://www.wakingtimes.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Sovereignty.jpg

By: Pao Chang

During the past decade, people's interest in freedom and sovereignty has increased significantly. Today, everywhere you go you often see in people's eyes that they are tired of being controlled and usurped by the government. This shift in consciousness is causing a large number of people to seek knowledge related to freedom and sovereignty. It is exciting to see more people taking charge of their lives; however, when people do not "innerstand" what freedom and sovereignty are, it can cause them to live in a state of delusion. Freedom and sovereignty are like two sides of one coin and therefore are deeply intertwined. As a result of that, you can not achieve true freedom without sovereignty. Another important principle that is deeply intertwined with freedom and sovereignty is responsibility. In the freedom movement, many people like to think that they can achieve freedom and sovereignty without responsibility. This is a false belief that can manifest a lot of confusion, frustration and anger into their lives. By the end of this article, you will know why responsibility plays a very essential role for achieving freedom and sovereignty. Furthermore, you will know why most men and women are not sovereigns.

What is a Sovereign?

To know what a sovereign is and how to be a sovereign, you need to know certain principles of sovereignty. Some of the ways to know these principles are by studying the words sovereign and sovereignty and deciphering their definitions to find their deeper meanings. Black's Law Dictionary (3rd edition) defines the word sovereign using these exact words: "A person, body, or state in which independent and supreme authority is vested; a chief ruler with supreme power; a king or other ruler with limited power." Webster's Complete Dictionary of the English Language (1886) defines the word sovereign using these exact words: "Supreme in power; superior to all others; highest in power; chief; independent of, and unlimited by, any other; possessing, or entitled to, original authority or jurisdiction; as, a sovereign prince." The word sovereign comes from the Old French word soverain, meaning "highest, supreme, chief" and from the Vulgar Latin word *superanus, meaning "chief, principal." Based on all the definitions of the word sovereign in the previous two paragraphs, a sovereign is "a king" or "a chief or ruler with supreme power." As for the word sovereignty, it comes from the Anglo-French word sovereynet...

The Lord Of The Deep: Does Megalodon The Monster Shark Still Live ? [VIDEO] "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Richard Anthony 2018-01-06

There is so little we know about the oceans that cover most of our beloved planet earth. We havent even begun to scratch the surface when it comes to all the life forms that live in the seas. For instance, the coelacanth was long considered extinct over 400 million years ago, yet, specimens have been found several times within the last 100 years.

And the giant squid, that particular animal was believed to be nothing more that fictional accounts from sailors during in the last 500 years. And thanks to science, we now know that creature also exists.

So what about megalodon? That giant killer of the deep was believed to have gone extinct around 2.6 million years ago. However, not everyone is convinced that megalodon is dead and gone. Some megalodon truthers think the massive shark is alive and well and living undiscovered in the Earths oceansand

Understanding How the Chrome V8 Engine Translates JavaScript into Machine Code "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Before diving deep into the core of Chromes V8, first lets get our fundamentals down. All of our systems consists of microprocessors, the thing that is sitting inside your computer right now and allowing you to read this.

Microprocessors are tiny machines that work with electrical signals and ultimately do the job. We give microprocessors the instructions. The instructions are in the language that microprocessors can interpret. Different microprocessors speak different languages. Some of the most common are IA-32, x8664, MIPS, and ARM. These languages directly interact with the hardware so the code written in them is called machine code. Code that we write on our computers is converted or compiled into machine code.

Thats what machine code looks like:

Source : Google

It consist of instructions that are performed at a particular piece of memory in your system at low level. You must feel lucky for not having to write all this to run your program!

High level languages are abstracted from machine language. In the level of abstraction below, you can see how far JavaScript is abstracted from machine level. C/C++ are relatively much closer to the hardware and hence much faster than other high level languages.

Now back to the V8 engine: V8 is a powerful open source Javascript engine provided by Google. So what actually is a Javascript Engine? It is a program that converts Javascript code into lower level or machine code that microprocessors can understand.

There are different JavaScript engines including Rhino, JavaScriptCore, and SpiderMonkey. These engines follow the ECMAScript Standards. ECMAScript defines the standard for the scripting language. JavaScript is based on ECMAScript standards. These standards define how the language should work and what features it should have. You can learn more about ECMAScript here.

The Chrome V8 engine :

  • The V8 engine is written in C++ and used in Chrome and Nodejs.
  • It implements ECMAScript as specified in ECMA-262.
  • The V8 engine can run standalone we can embed it with our own C++ program.

Why documenting your journey will lead to success as a developer "IndyWatch Feed Education"

I recently wrote an article on how I landed my first job as a self-taught developer. One of the points I made was to build a personal brand by creating content and putting yourself out there.

Im here to expand on that point and explain why documenting your journey will bring positive benefits.

Before I even wrote my first line of code, I knew I was going to start a blog and write about my journey as a self-taught developer.

At the time, I had discovered Gary Vaynerchuk and was binge watching his videos.

Gary preaches documenting your journey and explains how stories are what sells. So I took the advice.

Zapping Film with Electricity: How to Make Spark Patterns in Photos "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

There are still a few very unique and interesting things that can be done with film but not with a digital camera. One of these experiments is the recording of sparks on film.

Sparks are created when an electrical discharge moves either through or across the surface of the film. I first got interested in this project when I noticed static discharge patterns on X-ray film. Those patterns were due to the charge buildup on the plastic rollers in the auto development machines, but I wondered could I make better patterns in the lab?

Kodak 120 Ektachrome Professional Color Slide Film shows dielectric breakdown patterns.

It turns out there is an easy and relatively safe way to record these patterns by using a demonstration electrostatic generator called a Wimshurst machine. These electrostatic generators were popular around 1900 when they were used to create high voltages. Now these devices are used in the physics classroom to demonstrate static electricity.

The Wimshurst machine can generate a voltage in excess of 50,000 volts but the current is very low making it quite safe for a classroom. The devices can be very expensive, but lately several manufacturers have introduced models that are in the 50 dollar range. This is the perfect device for recording high voltage patterns in a darkroom with no chance of death from high voltage.

The experimenter will most likely get a few shocks that are similar to the sparks created by rubbing shoes on a rug. If the experimenter is careful and holds film with wooden tongs, or places the film in a nonconductive holder there will be few shocks.

The classic Wimshurst electrostatic generator. This one was built in the mid 1970s Holding the film. The sparks will arc through or around the film when the potential voltage between the spheres gets large enough. The voltage at which this happens is called the dielectric breakdown voltage....

Hain Celestials Simon Considers Splitting Company to Sell: Report "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Lake Success, NY The Hain Celestial Group cannot find a buyer because the organic food giant has been expanded to include too many brands, according to a story in The New York Post.

Veteran deal reporter Josh Kosman says four sources familiar with the situation told him Hains been informally on the market for a year. Nestle told Hain it wants to buy the business if it first sells its antibiotic-free fresh chicken and turkey division that accounted for 18% of sales in the year ended June 30, Kosman reports.

Ive said this year we are looking at a strategic overview of all of our business, and some things may not fit, Hain founder and CEO Irwin Simon told The Post. We have not made any decisions although the chicken and turkey division is a divestiture candidate.

Hain has a market cap of $4.2 billion in an organic space on fire with acquisitions of smaller independent organic brands. The latest was announced on Friday with New York-based Siggis yogurt selling to French dairy giant Lactalis Group.

In his interview with The Post, Simon said, Maybe [the sale plan] will involve selling some of my more lower-margin businesses.

Amazon represents 10% to 11% of sales, making it Hains biggest customer, Simon said. He was bullish on the opportunity for the industry in a quarterly earnings call shortly after Amazon bought Whole Foods Market. Hain has spent the year downsizing its SKUs to focus on the top 500.

The Nestle SA news last November had caused the companys shares to spike about 20% to more than $41 a share. It closed on Friday at $40.51. Shareholder activist Engaged Capital, which gained Hain board seats in September, is believed to be pushing for a sale, sources told Kosman.

Hains goal, Simon told The Post, is to boost sales for its most valuable brands to lift its trading multiple or to sell Hain to a large consumer foods company that is willing to pay a premium for the potential growth.

Simons interview with The Post is effectively a way to signal hes interested in hearing from any other suitors for smaller pieces of the business.

Venezuela goes crypto, launches oil/gold/diamond-backed "petro" cryptocurrency "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Venezuela is issuing $5.9 billion in petro, its state cryptocurrency, in the hopes that it will drive the country out of economic downfall amid US sanctions. The petro is backed by the country's oil, diamond and gold reserves. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, in a televised address, "has ordered the emission of 100 million petros with the legal sustenance of Venezuela's certified and legalized oil wealth. Every petro will be equal in value to Venezuela's oil barrel." That is, the total petro emission is estimated at nearly $6 billion. Apart from oil, whose largest stocks are found in Venezuela and which constitutes some 95 percent of the export revenue, the petro is backed by gold and diamond reserves. Maduro announced an intention to create a national cryptocurrency in early December. The blockchain technology is expected to help the South American country overcome a financial blockade imposed by the United States and facilitate the currency system. The Finance Ministry underscored the advantage of the cryptocurrency for conducting financial transactions and searching for new financing options, as the country's fiat currency, the bolivar, has been in freefall for two years with the country's economy struggling.

How to Do HDR Photography Using Microsoft Excel "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

There are a number of popular HDR photography programs out there. Microsoft Excel isnt one of them. Photography enthusiast and software engineer Kevin Chen came up with the strange and hilarious idea of using Excel to create an HDR photo, and he presented his results in this 12-minute presentation he gave at !!Con 2017 (pronounced bang bang con).

Chen is a computer science student at Columbia University and was previously an intern working on camera software at Apple.

In his presentation, Chen first explains the math and technical aspect of how both digital photography and high dynamic range (HDR) imaging work.

Have you ever taken a photo with areas that are too bright or too dark? As any photographer will tell you, high dynamic range photography is the right way to solve your problem, Chen says. And, as any businessperson will tell you, Microsoft Excel is the right platform to implement your solution.

After reading into one of the foundational papers about HDR imaging, Chen found that the algorithm is just a system of linear equations perfect for Excel!

To use Excel as an HDR photography program, Chen broke down his photos into grayscale pixels with each cell in the spreadsheet containing a pixel in the photo. By making the cells square and then zooming out (using the zoom level setting), the photo emerges.

"These tablets, with other ancient records, bear witness to the amazing fact the civilizations of India, Babylonia, Persia, Egypt and the Yucatan [Mayans] were but the dying embers of a great past civilization." --James Churchward In the 1920s famed researcher and occultist James Churchward wrote a series of ground breaking books about the lost continent of Lemuria which he called the land of Mu. His basic premises were that the Garden of Eden was not in the Middle East but on a sunken continent in the Pacific Ocean and the Biblical story of creation came from this now submerged continent of Mu. In this book, James' great-grandson Jack Churchward presents an examination of previously "not publicly available" portions of James Churchward's booklet Copies of Stone Tablets Found by William Niven at Santiago Ahuizoctla Near Mexico City (1927). He also discusses James' early ideas and interpretations of the "Valley of Mexico Tablets" and reveals nine of the twenty-two tables for the first time. James Churchward's research into the subject spanned several decades, starting from his time in India where he was taught to read the ancient Naacal tablets, a repository of wisdom from a time before our own, and his recognition that the Naacal Brotherhood also composed the tablets William Niven discovered, places their ancient wisdom and knowledge in our laps and offers the opportunity to impart the same to the reader.

Chemotherapy Promotes Inflammation, Causes Cancer to Spread Yet Another Study "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Yet another study has been published proving the link between chemotherapy and aggressive cancer promotion. Do we need any more evidence that the trillion-dollar cancer industry is completely toxic?

Published by the Beth Israel Deaconess Center, an article titled, Double Edged Sword: Killing Cancer Cells Can Also Drive Tumor Growth gives us the low-down on these toxic treatments.

The article summarizes a study conducted by researchers at the Center which found that radiation and chemotherapy treatments which seek to treat cancer by killing tumor cells are actually causing cancerous tumors to grow larger and more prolific.

A team that included researchers from BIDMC have shown that the dead and dying cancer cells generated by chemotherapy and targeted cancer therapy paradoxically trigger inflammation that promotes aggressive tumor growth.

The researchers suggest that chemo and radiation cause inflammation in the body, which contributes to cancerous tumors. The unintended consequence of these treatments is to cause cancer, not cure it.

In this study we demonstrate that chemotherapy-generated debris from dead and dying tumor cells can stimulate tumor growth, which has pivotal implications for the treatment of cancer patients, said senior author Dipak Panigrahy, MD, assistant professor of pathology in the Department of Pathology. Conventional cancer therapy designed to kill tumor cells is inherently a double-edged sword.

With this, and another study that we recently highlighted at Mind Unleashed, titled Neoadjuvant chemotherapy induces breast cancer metastasis through a TMEM-mediated mechanism, which proved that chemotherapy caused breast cancer cells to multiply, it is mind-boggling that we still spend upwards of $107 billion on cancer each year currently.

Despite years of research suggesting that chemo and radiation can cause cancers to metastasize, usually within just six months after treatment, this information has been suppressed.

Most ironically, metastatic cancer treatments may include biological therapy, radiation therapy, surgery...

When Homebirth Doesnt Happen and Transport Becomes the Best Choice "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

In this podcast, I talk about homebirth to hospital transports. Why is there such stigma around this? How do we talk about needed transport in an era of midwifery at home being defined by rules and regulations? How do we deal emotionally with transport when we are the mamas? Or the Midwives? This is an...

Dad to Email You Band Names as He Thinks of Them "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

NEW ORLEANS Jerry Nichols, the enthusiastic and supportive father of drummer Chris Nichols, is incessantly emailing his son band name suggestions as they come to him, the younger Nichols confirmed after the 27th borderline-incoherent email from his father.

The most recent email had no subject line and only said Great Barrier Riff, said Chris, who silenced his phone notifications. Yesterday, he texted me at 5:30 a.m. and asked, Get it? Like a guitar riff? I love my dad, but I think Im going to lie and say the band broke up.

The drummer casually mentioned his as-of-yet unnamed band to his father several weeks ago, completely unaware that his excitable dad would take it upon himself to help with a relentless torrent of terrible band names.

Sometimes its puns like The Treble with Angels. Other times, its weird word combinations, like Malicious Phoenix. One morning, he sent me Engine, Traffic Jam, and Excel which he clearly sent at the end of his workday, said Chris. I shut my phone off when he sent me the name Sexy Moms later that night.

Although the drummer was already mortified by his fathers overwhelming love and pride, his embarrassment peaked when Jerry began pestering his new bandmates.

Chriss dad friended me on Facebook, said guitarist Maria Lopez. He means well. Yesterday, he sent me a link for an upcoming sale at Musicians Friend, and then later, a YouTube video of the song China Grove with the comment, You should write something like this! I suppose thats helpful.

Now worried his dad may jeopardize the future of his burgeoning band, a desperate Chris resorted to what he described as a morally ambiguous tactic for diverting his fathers attention.

Im not proud of this, but I told my dad about my sisters podcast, the conflicted drummer said. I hate that I threw her under the bus, but I needed to get a little breathing room if this band is ever going to work.

Clinton Destroys Evidence in Chappaqua House Fire "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

A mysterious fire broke out Wednesday at Hillary Clintons Chappaqua mansion, located on the east bank of the Hudson River approximately thirty miles north of New York City. The blaze, which firefighters quickly extinguished, occurred at the Secret Service annex, an outbuilding not attached to the Clintons home. Moments after firefighters responded to the call, a Clinton spokesperson hundreds of miles away somehow had the facts at his fingertips, claiming that smoldering embers from a fireplace ignited upholstery. His comments, however, contradict information provided by our source and a statement given by a first responder.

In a statement given to ABC7 Eyewitness News, firefighter Brody Stowers said the fire was an atypical Class A fire. In firefighter terminology, Class A refers to a fire involving combustibles such as wood or paper, not fabric or upholstery. In a stricken comment, Stowers compared the Chappaqua fire to a scene in the novel Fahrenheit 451, a dystopian novel in which an oppressive government torches heretic literature.

There was no evidence of burnt furniture, drapes, anything, Stowers said. But the charcoaled residue of paperwork floated in the air. Its as if someone threw a thousand pages of paperwork into the fireplace, and in their haste to burn whatever they were burning, set fire to the buildings framework.

Our contact, a former Clinton associate with day-to-day knowledge of Hillarys movements, says the official story is a charade, and that Clinton laughed maniacally, chanting hes never gonna get me now, as she tossed classified documents into a fireplace. Then, she oredered her Secret Servants to burn and destroy several reams of paperwork and an unknown number of SD cards.  The information contained therein, our source said, implicated Hillary in Pizzagate, Pedogate, the misallocation of government assets, and myriad of high crimes and misdemeanors, charges worthy of a lengthy stay at Guantanamo Bay.

She acted in response to a tipoff, our source said, that the Department of Justice planned to reopen an investigation into her mishandling of classified material and...

An ethanol extract of root of Prunus persica inhibited the growth of liver cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2017 ;2017:8231936. Epub 2017 Oct 12. PMID: 29234432 Abstract Title:  Ethanol Extract of Root of Prunus persica Inhibited the Growth of Liver Cancer Cell HepG2 by Inducing Cell Cycle Arrest and Migration Suppression. Abstract:  Liver cancer is the second most lethal cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the primary cancer subgroup. However, the current chemotherapy agents remain ineffective and present wide side effects for advanced HCC patient. In this study, we investigated the antitumor role of ethanol extract of root of peach tree (Prunus persica (L.) Batsch and hereafter designated as TSG in short of its Chinese name), which is an important ingredient in Chinese medicine prescription, in liver cancer cell HepG2. By cell viability assay, we showed that addition of TSG in the culture medium inhibited the cell growth of HepG2 cells in a dose and time-dependent way. Cell cycle analysis indicated that TSG caused sustained M/G2 phase arrest. The expression of mitosis-related protein Cdc25c was impaired upon TSG treatment. Furthermore, wound healing assay demonstrated that TSG treatment notably suppressed the migration of HepG2 cells and the expression of extracellular matrix metalloprotease, MMP3 and MMP9. Most significantly, administration of TSG inhibited in vivo tumor growth in nude mice. Our findings suggested that TSG may serve as a source to isolate anti-HCC therapeutic ingredients.

Identifying peach and plum polyphenols with chemopreventive potential against estrogen-independent breast cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Agric Food Chem. 2009 Jun 24 ;57(12):5219-26. PMID: 19530711 Abstract Title:  Identifying peach and plum polyphenols with chemopreventive potential against estrogen-independent breast cancer cells. Abstract:  Our objective was to evaluate the cancer suppression activity of extracts from a commercial variety of yellow-fleshed peach 'Rich Lady' (RL) and a red-fleshed plum 'Black Splendor' (BS) and identify the phenolic fractions that may possess potential as chemopreventive and/or chemotherapeutic natural compounds. The peach RL extract effectively inhibited the proliferation of the estrogen-independent MDA-MB-435 breast cancer cell line. The concentration to inhibit 50% of cell proliferation (IC(50)) was approximately 42 mg/L for this cell line compared to an IC(50) of approximately 130 and approximately 515 mg/L for the noncancerous breast cell line MCF-10A and the estrogen-dependent breast cancer cell line MCF-7, respectively. Similarly, BS extracts showed greater effects on MDA-MB-435 cells as compared to the other breast cancer or the normal breast cell lines. In general, BS extracts were less effective than RL extracts. Within all RL and BS fractions, fraction 3 (F3, flavonoids) and fraction 4 (F4, procyanidins) were more potent than fraction 1 (F1, phenolic acids) and fraction 2 (F2, anthocyanins) against the three cell lines. The order of potency of RL fractions against MDA-MB-435 was F(3) approximately F(4)>F(1)>F(2). The antiproliferative activity of pure compounds identified in F(3) and F(1) confirmed that quercetin 3beta-glucoside is the bioactive compound in F(3), with the same level of toxicity on the estrogen-independent MDA-MB-435 breast cancer and breast epithelial MCF-10A cells (IC(50) = 1.9 +/- 0.2 and 1.8 +/- 0.3, respectively). However, we confirmed that phenolic acids present in F(1): chlorogenic and neo-chlorogenic acids have potential as chemopreventive dietary compounds because of the relatively high growth inhibition exerted on the estrogen-independent MDA-MB-435 breast cancer cell line and low toxicity exerted in the normal MCF-10A cells.

Photographer Captures the Solitary Neon Streets of Hamburg at Night "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Mark Broyer Hamburg photographs

Freelance art director and designer Mark Broyer explores his hometown of Hamburg after dark, shooting evocative night photography of its neon-tinged streets. Focusing on the empty avenues and stark storefronts of the German city, Broyer pulls out the lush details of the urban landscape.

Broyer was first attracted t0 night photography as a way to explore the beauty in the ordinary. The city reveals a different face at night so that certain areas can become an imaginary movie stage just through the lights of the surrounding, he tells My Modern Met. And I like the absence of people in the photos, which is much easier to accomplish at night.

And so we are presented a Hamburg that, though devoid of humans, is rich in character. Every corner appears filled with mystery, a blush of color bouncing from the asphalt and creating a cinematic atmosphere. Not relying on either a tripod or flash, Broyer's technical prowess is on display, as his sharp, crisp images prove that if you look closely at familiar surroundings, something beautiful can appear.

In the beginning, I tried to challenge myself to find interesting shots in my hometown, Broyer confesses. I always thought everything else, especially far away places, were much more interesting. But I just hadn't looked close enough to find something worthy enough to photograph.

Adding to his After Hours series of Hamburg at night, which unfolds over four volumes, Broyer has also created clever gifs with select photographs. Collectively titled Voltage Fluctuation, they subtly transform to transport viewers straight into the streets of Hamburg.

Art director and designer Mark Broyer spends his evenings photographing the streets of Hamburg, his hometown, looking to capture the beauty of his familiar surroundings.

The Satoshi Revolution Chapter 4: What Do You Have to Hide? Everything! (Part 1)

The Satoshi Revolution: A Revolution of Rising Expectations.
Section 2: The Moral Imperative of Privacy
Chapter 4: When Privacy Is Criminalized. Only Criminals Will Be Private
by Wendy McElroy

What Do You Have to Hide? Everything! (Chapter 4, Part 1)

I grew up with the understanding that the world I lived in was one where people enjoyed a sort of freedom to communicate with each other in privacy, without it being monitored, without it being measured or analyzed or sort of judged by these shadowy figures or systems, any time they mention anything that travels across public lines.
Edward Snowden

I want my tombstone to read: I lived. I died. Now mind your own damned business. What do I have to hide? Everything! Which is to say, any information I am required to reveal is data I decline to disclose.

Privacy is the single most effective way to preserve freedom against encroaching government. In his book Seeing Like a State: How Certain Schemes to Improve the Human Condition Have Failed, the political scientist James C. Scott commented on the role of one form of data inventory played in the rise of the modern state: the census. Scott wrote, If we imagine a state that has no reliable means of enumerating and locating its population, gauging its wealth, and mapping its land, resources, and settlements, we are imagining a state whose interventions in that society are necessarily crude. Data is power, both for individuals and for governments.

The privacy of cryptocurrency offers the brightest hope for individuals to preserve their financial autonomy. And the need for privacy has never been more urgent; with the digital age, the collection of data has become a bonanza of which past governments could only dream. But crypto-users who want to control their own wealth confro...

Smart Meter Fires: They Just Wont Go Away "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Its happened again!  Another AMI Smart Meter explosion and fire, but this time a quick-thinking-and-acting mom was able to prevent a catastrophe for her family, plus kept the house from burning down.

According to Fox4KC.com News,

Cerise Edwards was asleep inside her home when a small explosion woke her children, who then woke her.

I did a little research, and Ive seen we are not the first people in the KC area to have experienced that kind of thing.  KCP&L had problems last year with them.

The Fox4KC.com report goes on to say,

Company leaders said theyre in the process of switching all customers to the new digital meters because the analog meters are no longer being manufactured.

What a crock of corporate propaganda or, moreover, factual error! 

Below are two electric utility meters.  The one on the left is a fire-prone digital smart meter; the one on the right is a safe analog meter, which has been perfected for safety and accuracy over decades of use.  However, an analog meter will not spy on what you are doing in your home; will not be able to interact with all your smart appliances, even shut them...
