Mangkhut becomes 4th Super Typhoon of the 2018 season, heading toward Philippines, Taiwan and Hong Kong

Typhoon “Mangkhut” underwent rapid intensification and became the fourth Super Typhoon of the 2018 Pacific typhoon season on September 11, 2018. The system is currently slowing down while maintaining its westerly track across the Western Pacific Ocean and it expected to further intensify over the next two days. The current forecast track takes its center just north of northern Philippines on September 14, south of Taiwan on September 15 and then toward Hong Kong. Landfall is expected just south of the territory around 12:00 UTC on September 16. This is the 22nd named storm of the 2018 Pacific season.

At 15:00 UTC on September 11, the center of Super Typhoon “Mangkhut” was located approximately 470 km (292 miles) north of Yap, Federated States of Micronesia and has tracked westward at 22 km/h (14 mph) over the past six hours.

Animated enhanced infrared satellite imagery shows a symmetric and highly consolidated system with compact feeder bands spiraling tightly into a sharply-outlined 42 km (26 miles) wide eye….

USA Today Warns “You Will Get Microchipped”

At one time, the notion that the general population would be microchipped someday was a “conspiracy theory”, but now the mainstream media is coming right out and telling us that we will all get chipped. It is almost as if they are trying to mentally condition us to accept what is coming. Of course it is being portrayed as “cool” and “trendy,” and a lot of people will be fooled by that.

But if someday identity chips are required for the entire population, the potential for tyranny would be off the charts. Unfortunately, some sort of permanent digital identification is increasingly being pushed as the solution to problems such as identity theft, tax evasion, illegal immigration and money laundering. And tech companies would love to have a universal way to confirm the identities of individuals on the Internet. But very few people are talking about the dark side of this technology, and that is a very frightening thing….

Initially, implantable microchips will be touted as the wave of the future. We will be told that they will make our lives so much easier and more convenient, and the USA Today article made a big deal of that:

This would go beyond paying with your smartphone. Instead, chipped customers would simply wave their hands in lieu of Apple Pay and other mobile-payment systems.

The benefits don’t stop there. In the future, consumers could zip through airport scanners sans passport or driver’s license; open doors; start cars and operate home automation systems. All of it, if the technology pans out, with the simple wave of a hand.

For a long time, I have warned that this was coming, and some people are already willingly microchipping themselves….


WAVES AND SEAS ROARING! The Atlantic Ocean Looks Terrifying Right Now!

Hurricane Florence is the biggest threat in the Atlantic right now, but it’s hardly the only storm. The tropics have gone wild, with three hurricanes spinning at the same time, as you can see for yourself in satellite imagery captured as the sun rose on the Atlantic Monday morning.

In addition to rapidly-strengthening Florence (which just hit Category 3 status), Helene and Isaac became hurricanes on Sunday. More than 2,000 miles separates the three hurricanes so the only way to view them all together is from space. Luckily, there’s a way to do that thanks to GOES 16.

The next generation satellite was launched last year with the express intent of improving our view of hurricanes to improve forecasts. But it also provides one hell of a view to the public, showing what our planet is capable of from a vantage point of more than 22,000 miles above the Earth’s surface….


Monster hurricane Florence
Long-Term power outages expected

WILMINGTON, N.C., Sept 11 (Reuters) – Hurricane Florence, on track to become the first Category 4 storm to make a direct hit on North Carolina in six decades, howled closer to shore on Tuesday, threatening to unleash deadly pounding surf, days of torrential rain and severe flooding.

Fierce winds and massive waves are expected to lash the coasts of North and South Carolina and Virginia even before Florence makes landfall by early Friday, bringing a storm surge as much as 13 feet (4 meters), the National Hurricane Center in Miami warned. Catastrophic floods could follow if the storm stalls inland, it said.

Although Florence was still days from arrival, authorities took extraordinary measures to move people out of harm’s way. More than 1 million residents have been ordered to evacuate from the coastline of the three states, while university campuses, schools and factories were being shuttered.

The U.S. Coast Guard closed ports in Wilmington and Morehead City, North Carolina and Hampton Roads, Virginia to inbound vessels greater than 500 tons and was requiring vessels of that size to leave if they did not have permission to be in the ports.

Packing maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour (225 km per hour), the storm ranked as a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale and was expected to grow stronger and larger over the next few days, the NHC said….


UK ‘failing’ to save thousands of children from modern slavery

More than 2,000 children suspected to have been trafficked were referred to the government last year – the highest annual number on record

Britain is failing to protect thousands of children from being trafficked and enslaved, activists said on Tuesday, criticising the government for lacking a clear strategy to stop girls being sexually abused and gangs using young people as drug mules.

The government’s approach to tackling child trafficking is fragmented and young victims lack specialist care at a time when a record number of child slaves are being uncovered, said the Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group (ATMG), a group of charities.

In Britain, 2,118 children suspected to have been trafficked – mostly trapped in sexual exploitation, domestic servitude or forced labour – were referred to the government last year, up 66 percent on 2016 and the highest annual number on record.

About a third were British, many used as drug runners, while hundreds were trafficked from countries such as Vietnam, Sudan, Eritrea, Afghanistan and Iraq, according to government figures.

“Having no clear plan in place to prevent child trafficking in the UK … should shame this government,” said Anti-Slavery International’s chief executive Jasmine O’Connor, adding that simply targeting the traffickers would not solve the problem.

“We need to create support networks that can make children and their families resilient to being coerced, are able to spot the worrying signs quickly, and can provide specialised support for children who have already been trafficked,” she added.

A Home Office (interior ministry) spokesman told the Thomson Reuters Foundation that the government already had a clear plan to prevent human trafficking, especially that of children….


81 Percent of Family TV Comedies Show Kids Being Exposed to Sexual Dialogue

Over 80 percent of prime-time network family comedy television shows have scenes in which adult characters use sexually explicit dialogue in front of children, a conservative media watchdog has warned.

In a new report released Monday, the Parents Television Council has documented the widespread use of sexually charged language in television shows across multiple networks that the networks themselves are deeming to be family-friendly.

“What we are seeing is the frog in the boiling water, where as the temperature goes up, the frog doesn’t realize how hot it has gotten,” Winter told The Christian Post in an interview. “We have certainly seen over the last several years an increase in sexualizing content, especially for young girls.”

Shows surveyed in the report include: “The Mick,” “A.P. Bio,” “Last Man Standing,” “Dr. Ken,” “American Housewife,” “The Middle,” “The Real O’Neals,” “Family Guy,” “Black-ish,” “Jane the Virgin,” “The Goldbergs,” “Modern Family,” “Man With a Plan,” “Kevin Can Wait,” “Mom,” “Young Sheldon,” The Simpsons,” “Bob’s Burgers,” L.A. to Vegas,” “Roseanne,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “Speechless,” “This is Us,” “Champions” and Son of Zorn.”….

See Comet 21p/Giacobini-Zinner Zip By Earth in Orbit Animation..


Bright green comet 21P will light up the skies of September – And you can even see it with binoculars!

September brings a chance to see a comet. It will be bright enough that you can readily glimpse it using binoculars, though it will be much easier to see using just a small telescope. Comet Giacobini-Zinner was discovered in December 1900 by the French astronomer Michel Giacobini at the Nice Observatory in France. Initially, Giacobini calculated that this newfound comet had a relatively short orbital period of just under 7 years, but no one saw the object during its anticipated 1907 return.

What to expect

This month provides us with one of the best opportunities to see 21P/Giacobini-Zinner. The comet will arrive at perihelion on Monday (Sept. 10) at a distance of 94.2 million miles (151.5 million km) from the sun. On the same day, the comet will also be at perigee, its closest point to Earth, at a distance of 36.3 million miles (58.5 million km).

As to what you should expect to see, the brightness of 21P will probably hold at near seventh magnitude all through the rest of September. Unfortunately, seventh magnitude is below the threshold of naked-eye visibility even under a dark, clear sky, but using good binoculars or a small telescope and sky map depicting the comet’s path against the constellations, you should have no difficulty in spotting the object. Interestingly, in a few cases, the comet has experienced unexpected short-term outbursts in brightness around the time of perihelion, making it appear about a half-magnitude brighter. That would place 21P right at the verge of naked-eye visibility….

When and where to look

The comet will be primarily a morning object all through September, well-placed for observation in the after-midnight and predawn hours. Currently, Giacobini-Zinner is located in the constellation of Auriga, the charioteer. In the nights that follow its closest approach, 21P will track on a southeastward trajectory against the background stars. On the morning of Sept. 11, the comet will reach a spot on the sky bordering three constellations: Auriga; Taurus, the bull; and Gemini, the twins.

Make a special effort to look for 21P during the morning hours of Sept. 15; on that date, it will cross through Messier 35, a beautiful star cluster in Gemini. Of M35, the 19th century British astronomer William Lassell wrote in the “New Handbook of the Heavens” (McGraw Hill, 1948), “It is a marvelously striking object. No one can see it for the first time without an exclamation.”…


Chinese officials burn bibles, close churches, force Christian to denounce faith amid ‘escalating’ crackdown

The Chinese government is destroying crosses, burning bibles, closing churches and forcing Christian believers to sign papers renouncing their faith as the crackdown on religious congregations in Beijing and several provinces intensifies.

The suppression of religious freedoms is part of an official campaign to “Sinicize” religion by demanding loyalty to the atheist Communist party and removing any potential challenge to the party’s power in the country.

“The international community should be alarmed and outraged for this blatant violation of freedom of religion and belief,” Bob Fu of China Aid, said.

“The situation for Chinese #Christians becomes more dire by the day. We are working tirelessly to put maximum pressure on China stop the persecution,” Jay Sekulow, President Trump attorney and Chief Counsel at the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), wrote in a tweet….


Hurricane, Storm Surge Watch Issued as Florence Targets Carolinas With Flooding, Destructive Winds

Over 1 Million ordered to get out

Hurricane Florence will lash the Carolinas beginning late Thursday as an intense Category 4 hurricane with life-threatening storm surge, destructive winds and massive inland rainfall flooding in one of the strongest strikes on record for this part of the East Coast.

Tuesday morning, a hurricane watch and storm surge watch were issued for the entire coast of North Carolina, including Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds, and the South Carolina coast as far south as Edisto Beach. This includes Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Wilmington and the Outer Banks.

These watches mean hurricane conditions and a life-threatening storm surge are possible. The hurricane watch is typically issued 48 hours ahead of the arrival of tropical storm force winds which would make last-minute preparations difficult….


Can Mark Zuckerberg Fix Facebook Before It Breaks Democracy?

The most famous entrepreneur of his generation is facing a public reckoning with the power of Big Tech.

At ten o’clock on a weekday morning in August, Mark Zuckerberg, the chairman and C.E.O. of Facebook, opened the front door of his house in Palo Alto, California, wearing the tight smile of obligation. He does not enjoy interviews, especially after two years of ceaseless controversy. Having got his start as a programmer with a nocturnal bent, he is also not a morning person. Walking toward the kitchen, which has a long farmhouse table and cabinets painted forest green, he said, “I haven’t eaten breakfast yet. Have you?”

Since 2011, Zuckerberg has lived in a century-old white clapboard Craftsman in the Crescent Park neighborhood, an enclave of giant oaks and historic homes not far from Stanford University. The house, which cost seven million dollars, affords him a sense of sanctuary. It’s set back from the road, shielded by hedges, a wall, and mature trees. Guests enter through an arched wooden gate and follow a long gravel path to a front lawn with a saltwater pool in the center. The year after Zuckerberg bought the house, he and his longtime girlfriend, Priscilla Chan, held their wedding in the back yard, which encompasses gardens, a pond, and a shaded pavilion. Since then, they have had two children, and acquired a seven-hundred-acre estate in Hawaii, a ski retreat in Montana, and a four-story town house on Liberty Hill, in San Francisco. But the family’s full-time residence is here, a ten-minute drive from Facebook’s headquarters.

Occasionally, Zuckerberg records a Facebook video from the back yard or the dinner table, as is expected of a man who built his fortune exhorting employees to keep “pushing the world in the direction of making it a more open and transparent place.” But his appetite for personal openness is limited. Although Zuckerberg is the most famous entrepreneur of his generation, he remains elusive to everyone but a small circle of family and friends, and his efforts to protect his privacy inevitably attract attention. The local press has chronicled his feud with a developer who announced plans to build a mansion that would look into Zuckerberg’s master bedroom. After a legal fight, the developer gave up, and Zuckerberg spent forty-four million dollars to buy the houses surrounding his. Over the years, he has come to believe that he will always be the subject of criticism. “We’re not—pick your noncontroversial business—selling dog food, although I think that people who do that probably say there is controversy in that, too, but this is an inherently cultural thing,” he told me, of his business. “It’s at the intersection of technology and psychology, and it’s very personal.”….


Floating Trash Collector Set to Tackle Pacific Garbage Patch

The Ocean Cleanup’s nearly 2,000-foot boom will collect ocean plastics from the gigantic garbage gyre over the next year.

The campaign to rid the world’s oceans of plastic trash marks a turning point on Saturday as a giant, floating trash-collector steams out of San Francisco on a mission to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Over the course of the next year, the device will undergo the ultimate tests and face some tough questions: Can technology prevail over nature? Did the engineers at The Ocean Cleanup in the Netherlands invent the first feasible method for extracting large amounts of plastic debris from the sea? Or will the wilds of the open Pacific tear it to shreds, turning the cleaner itself into plastic trash? Alternately, even if a Pacific storm does not devour the device, will it attract marine animals such as dolphins and turtles and fatally entangle them?

“I don’t think it’s going to work, but I hope it does,” says George Leonard, the Ocean Conservancy’s chief scientist. “The ocean needs all the help it can get.”

The project is the creation of Boyan Slat, a 24-year-old Dutch college dropout who raised more than $30 million on a five-year quest to build an ocean-cleaning machine. His inspiration dates to a holiday diving trip in Greece he took as a teenager, where he encountered so much plastic, he decided to make cleaning up the ocean his mission. Back home in the Netherlands, he quit his aerospace engineering studies at the Delft University of Technology and founded the nonprofit Ocean Cleanup, where he is now CEO with a staff of 65 engineers and scientists….



Superbugs jumping frequently between humans and animals

MRSA staphylococcus is an example of a superbug. These bacterial strains are resistant to most antibiotics and can cause serious infections.

“In the case of MRSA, these bacteria have also spread in hospitals almost worldwide,” says Jukka Corander, professor at the University of Helsinki, a member of an international research team that mapped several millennia of the evolution of the staphylococcus. In their extensive study, the researchers sequenced whole genomes of superbugs from a large sample from animals and humans, and were able to study the DNA changes that helped the bacteria adapt to new host organisms over thousands of years.

Based on , humans were most probably the original hosts to these superbugs, and judging from DNA changes, the ability to colonise domestic animals appeared in an age when the first animals were domesticated to become livestock on farms….

The significance of this is that it proves that one can use unmanned surface vehicles to explore the oceans for extended periods and distance. This greatly reduces the cost of exploring the oceans, and therefore enables a much more detailed knowledge of the oceans than is possible using conventional manned technology.,” explained David Peddie, CEO of Norwegian-based Offshore Sensing AS, which built the vessel….


Invasive Reptiles Are Taking Over Florida—and Devouring Its Birds Along the Way

Birds like Roseate Spoonbills and Burrowing Owls are ending up in the stomachs of hungry pythons and nile monitors. Is it too late to stop them?

It’s a sweaty morning last June on the outskirts of Tampa, and droves of reptile enthusiasts are streaming into an air-conditioned expo center. Some have woken early to trek out to the Florida State Fairgrounds to get first crack at the animals of Repticon, a weekend-long extravaganza that’s similar to a baseball card convention, except instead of mint-condition Mickey Mantles and Pete Roses there are green anacondas and meat-eating lizards. One vendor’s table is covered in flimsy plastic catering trays that are filled with ball pythons. Others are selling Asian water monitors, gargoyle geckos, yellow rat snakes, and bearded dragons. A guy strolls by wearing a “Snakes Lives Matter” t-shirt.

Another man, who has a three-foot-long lizard slung across his chest like a bandolier, is at a nearby booth admiring a young boa constrictor that’s twirling around his girlfriend’s fingers. Price? $100. Sold.

Roughly 60 Repticons take place each year, from Phoenix to Oklahoma City to Baltimore, attracting an estimated 200,000 visitors. These shows represent but a tiny sliver of the live-reptile trade, a loosely regulated industry that spans the globe and generates an estimated $1.2 billion in revenue annually, according to the United States Association of Reptile Keepers. In much of the continental United States, these cold-blooded creatures aren’t likely to fare well outdoors should they escape or be set free. But the sub-tropics of South Florida are different, and the best adapted have not only survived in the wild, they have thrived. To date the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, or FWC, has identified 50 types of non-native lizards, turtles, crocodilians, and snakes within state limits, more than anywhere else in the world.

For the birds of Florida, this blitz of exotic predators poses an existential-scale threat. The Burmese pythons, which stalk wading birds in the Everglades, have become so menacing that the state has hosted derby-style competitions to catch them. Farther north, Nile monitors—the largest lizard in Africa—have been terrorizing a population of Burrowing Owls in the city of Cape Coral. And on the outskirts of Florida City, just outside Everglades National Park, egg-eating Argentine tegus could soon raid the nesting grounds of one of the last remaining populations of the endangered Cape Sable Seaside Sparrow. Each of these reptiles found their way to Florida via the pet trade—but while most people acknowledge that’s a leaky pipeline, few agree on whether and how to plug it….


Florence to rapidly intensify into a major hurricane, remain extremely dangerous as it moves toward United States

Hurricane “Florence” is forecast to rapidly intensify into a major hurricane by September 10, and remain extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane while it moves over the western Atlantic toward the southeastern United States. There is an increased risk of two life-threatening impacts from Florence: storm surge at the coast and freshwater flooding from a prolonged heavy rainfall event inland. While it is too soon to determine the exact timing, location, and magnitude of these impacts, interests at the coast and inland from South Carolina into the mid-Atlantic region should closely monitor the progress of Florence, ensure they have their hurricane plan in place, and follow any advice given by local officials.

At 15:00 UTC on September 9, 2018, the center of Hurricane “Florence” was located 1 210 km (750 miles) SE of Bermuda and 985 km (610 miles) NE of the northern Leeward Islands. Its maximum sustained winds were 120 km/h (75 mph), making it a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale….

Meanwhile, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the quake-hit northern region of Hokkaido Sunday as officials confirmed more deaths, bringing the toll to 44….


Head of British intelligence warns artificial intelligence is greater concern than climate change or terrorism

Artificial Intelligence is a greater concern than antibiotic resistance, climate change or terrorism for the future of Britain, the incoming president of the British Science Association has warned.

Jim Al-Khalili, Professor of physics and public engagement at the University of Surrey, said the unprecedented technological progress in AI was ‘happening too fast’ without proper scrutiny or regulation.

Prof Al-Khalili warned that the full threat to jobs and security had not been properly assessed and urged the government to urgently regulate.

Speaking at a briefing in London ahead of the British Science Festival in Hull next week, he said: “Until maybe a couple of years ago had I been asked what is the most pressing and important conversation we should be having about our future, I might have said climate change or one of the other big challenges facing humanity, such as terrorism, antimicrobial resistance, the threat of pandemics or world poverty.

“But today I am certain the most important conversation we should be having is about the future of AI. It will dominate what happens with all of these other issues for better or for worse.

“If Russian cyber hackers were able to meddle with the 2016 US elections, then what is stopping cyber terrorists from hacking into any future AI controlled power grids, transport systems, banks of military installations….

Hasidic Jews in NYC throw bleach in face of Rabbi who opposes child sexual abuse

The advocate, Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg, who runs a Web site and telephone call-in line that publicizes claims of sexual abuse in the ultra-Orthodox community, said in an interview at the hospital where he was treated that he was walking on Roebling Street about noon when a man came up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder.

“He has a cup of bleach,” Rabbi Rosenberg said, adding that he recognized the man. “And then he says ‘whoops’ and throws it in my face and walks off.”

A Police Department spokeswoman said on Tuesday evening that there had been an “ongoing dispute” between Rabbi Rosenberg and the man who threw the unidentified substance, but that no arrest had yet been made. Rabbi Rosenberg was taken to Woodhull Medical Center with burns to his face.

Rabbi Rosenberg’s crime for which he deserved being attacked with bleach?

Speaking out against a 54-year-old unlicensed “therapist” who sexually abused a young girl who came to him for help repeatedly.

The Hasidic Jewish community was so against the idea of Charles Hynes, the rapist-cum-therapist, being brought to justice that members of their community literally went to the court and criminally attemtped to intimidate the young girl.

Prosecutors have long had trouble finding witnesses in the community because speaking out, especially to non-Jewish legal authorities, could bring retaliation. In this particular case, Mr. Hynes charged four men with allegedly trying to interfere with bribery and threats. Four others face criminal contempt of court charges for taking pictures in the courtroom in an apparent attempt to intimidate the victim….

Less than a year after the end of the most remarkable Atlantic hurricane season in history three tropical storms eye the Gulf of Mexico

It’s September again and yes… three tropical storms are queuing up in the Atlantic all three with an eye on the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.

Warm waters are feeding Florence and is forecast to restrengthen into a hurricane and push close to Bermuda and the United States East Coast this week.

According to, Florence may evolve into a serious direct threat.
After forming near the Cabo Verde Islands last weekend, Florence became the first Category 4 hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season as it entered a zone of low wind shear and sufficiently warm waters last week.

Two new tropical storms have emerged in the eastern Atlantic Ocean this week and one could threaten some of the Caribbean Islands this week….


Monkeypox: UK’s first case of rare viral infection confirmed

More than 50 members of the public could have been exposed to a rare viral infection, health officials fear after the first case of monkeypox was diagnosed in the UK.

A Nigerian naval officer who came to the UK to take part in an Ministry of Defence (MoD) training exercise at a Royal Navy base in Cornwall was confirmed to have the disease on Friday.

He flew from Nigeria, where he is believed to have contracted the disease, to London on a commercial flight last weekend.

Public Health England (PHE) have contacted passengers on the plane who were sat close to the man to warn them that they have been exposed to the infection.

The risk to the wider public is considered to be very low, PHE said….

Life-threatening genital infection found in some using common diabetes drugs, FDA says

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning on Wednesday that it’s found cases of a rare but life-threatening, flesh-eating genital infection in people taking a certain type of diabetes drugs.

Three of the drugs covered by the warning are the commonly used Invokana, Farxiga and Jardiance, according to Bloomberg.

Others are made by Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck & Co and Pfizer Inc., Reuters reported. The full list covered by the warning is on the FDA website.

They belong to a class of type 2 diabetes drugs called SGLT2 inhibitors that “lower blood sugar by causing the kidneys to remove sugar from the body through the urine,” the FDA said in its safety announcement.

The FDA estimated that 1.7 million people in the United States last year got a prescription for an SGLT2 inhibitor from a retail pharmacy.

Between March of 2013 – the first year this class of drugs was approved – and May 2018 the FDA “identified 12 cases of Fournier’s gangrene in patients taking an SGLT2 inhibitor,” the agency reported.

All were hospitalized and needed surgery, the FDA said. One patient died….


Every brush stroke controlled by his mouth, paralyzed man finds art success after accident

Marcus Thomas slowly dips his brush into one of the many droplets of paint laid out in front of his easel. With his hands resting on his chair, he carefully puts brush to canvas and, with a precise touch, paints a feather on a bird.

After graduating college with a degree in outdoor recreation-resort management, Thomas worked at a ski resort on Beech Mountain in North Carolina. He hoped to one day run a Four Seasons Resort.
At the end of the workday on March 3, 1986, Thomas closed up the ski shop and hit the slopes. On his last run, he fell and slammed into the base of a tree….

Picturing the future

After his release from the hospital, Thomas pondered his future and started work on a master’s degree. But it was an offhand gift from his wife that enabled him to picture his future: a set of watercolors and a paintbrush he could hold in his mouth.
“I bought him the watercolors, he started painting, and that was it. He was hooked.”
Her first impression of his work?
“It was terrible. About the third-grade level.”
But for Thomas, it was a stroke of freedom.
“I realized I could live outdoors through my painting. Live outside of my mind, outside of the physical existence.
Soon, an hour or two of painting a day turned into seven or eight….


Pond found covered with mysterious red slime in Canada

Jennifer Meunier and her family hoped to find a good place to fish when they pulled off the highway near Doaktown onto McKean Brook Road, but instead they found a pond covered in a bright red, quivering, bubbling, paint-like substance.

“It was really bright red kind of bubbly kind of quivering the closer that we got to it,” she said. “It was really really strange.”

Janice Lawrence, associate professor in biology at the the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton said it’s difficult to tell what the substance is without a closer look….

There will be a hard road closure at East Side and East Fork Road for non-residents. There is an Evacuation Advisory only from the East Fork/East Side Road junction west to Highway 3 northward to Ramshorn Road….


Elon Musk: I’m about to announce a ‘Neuralink’ product that connects your brain to computers

Elon Musk says he will soon announce a Neuralink product that can make anyone superhuman by connecting their brains to a computer.

He says Neuralink increases the data rate between the brain and computers and will give humans a better shot at competing with AI.

Musk made the comments before he smoked weed and drank on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

Elon Musk smoked pot and drank whiskey on the Joe Rogan podcast and said he’s going to soon announce a new “Neuralink” product that can make anyone superhuman.

“I think we’ll have something interesting to announce in a few months … that’s better than anyone thinks is possible,” the Tesla CEO said on “Joe Rogan Experience.” “Best case scenario, we effectively merge with AI.”

Musk, whose enterprises include a company called Neuralink, says his new technology will be able to seamlessly combine humans with computers, giving us a shot at becoming “symbiotic” with artificial intelligence.

Musk argued that since we’re already practically attached to our phones, we’re already cyborgs. We’re just not as smart as we could be because the data link between the information we can get from our phones to our brains isn’t as fast as it could be….


Yahoo email caught secretly scanning user emails to build psych profiles to sell to advertisers

Yahoo is scanning people’s email for information to sell to advertisers, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.

The tech giant scans more than 200 million Yahoo Mail inboxes for information about what people have bought, such as receipts from department stores or automotive loan companies, the Journal reported Tuesday. Executives at Yahoo, which was bought by Verizon in June 2017 and placed under its Oath umbrella, have been pitching interest-based advertising to marketers.

Yahoo puts emails into different categories; for example if someone receives a flight confirmation, they might be put into a “frequent traveler” group. That person might then see advertising for hotel chains that might appear on other websites. AOL, also owned by Oath, scans emails in this way as well, the Journal’s report said. Data are aggregated and anonymized, so advertisers wouldn’t have access to an individual’s information.

This type of scanning only applies to emails from organizations and not personal messages, according to Oath’s vice president of data, measurements and insights, Doug Sharp, who told the Journal that Yahoo’s research shows people prefer personalized advertising. “Email is an expensive system,” he added. “I think it’s reasonable and ethical to expect the ‘value exchange,’ if you’ve got this mail service and there is advertising going on.”….

Two Florida families are homeless after a 20-foot deep, 40-foot wide sinkhole opened up between their houses on Wednesday.

Sinkholes form when ground water circulates through and dissolves certain types of soft rock, usually limestone, salt, gypsum, anhydrite and dolomite. As the rocks dissolve, caverns form and eventually, there is not enough strength to support the land above, triggering a sinkhole like this Wednesday in New Port Richey….


The 3rd major quake to strike the Pacific Ring Of Fire in the last 36 hours rocks Ecuador coronal activity on our Sun suggests more to come?

A magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck central Ecuador on Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said, injuring one person and disrupting power supply to nearby areas.

The major quake hit 94 km (58 miles) south of the city of Ambato at a depth of 112 km (69 miles), the USGS said.

Mom Says Daughter Contracted Deadly Condition by Just Trying on Shoes Without Socks

A four-year-old girl has contacted a life-threatening disease after trying on shoes without socks. Welsh mother Jodie Thomas explained that her daughter Sienna had been trying on shoes just a day before the horrific infection took hold through a little cut on her foot.

“The shoes she liked had been tried on by other little girls and that’s how Sienna picked up the infection,” Thomas, 26, told The Sun. The day after the pair had been shopping together, Sienna developed an excruciating sore on her foot. This soon led to an infection which began to spread up her leg, causing the little girl to experience a high fever.

“I drove her straight to the hospital, she was shaking and twitching – it was horrible to see my little girl like that,” Thomas explained. “They said it was sepsis and thought they would have to operate.”….


Torah scroll found safe after massive museum fire in Brazil, Deemed “Rosh Hashanah Miracle”

The Jewish community of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was in great relief Wednesday to know that the Medieval Yemenite Torah Scroll was not at the National Museum in Rio, which had been engulfed by a massive fire on Sunday.

For a few hours, there were rumors that the scroll had turned into ashes, but Beit Lubavitch Leblon rabbis announced the Torah scroll has been removed from the main building some time ago.

The 13th century Torah scroll once belonged to the second and last monarch of the 19th century empire of Brazil, Emperor Dom Pedro II. The Emperor established a reputation as a forward-thinking governor, who pushed through the abolition of slavery, freedom of speech and widespread education.

“We deeply regret the loss of this colossal treasure in the history of Brazil,” Israel’s honorary consul in Rio, Osias Wurman, said of the building in an interview with JTA. “The only compensation was to know that the Torah of Pedro II is safe, since it was located in another building of the museum. This Torah is evidence of the admiration that the Portuguese monarch had for the Jewish people and for their traditions. This was so rare in Europe.”…,


Tomorrow’s cybersecurity threats will come from everywhere, and so will the workers fighting them

In 2016, security researchers presented attendees of DEFCON, the annual Las Vegas hacker convention, with some unnerving findings about internet-connected smart locks: After testing over a dozen varieties of the devices across multiple manufacturers, the researchers found that 75 percent of them had major security vulnerabilities that left them exposed to hackers, who could unlock them from a quarter of a mile away.

For Steven Weber, a political science professor at The University of California Berkeley and the director of The Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, the security challenges facing smart locks epitomize a larger reality: When it comes to security, seemingly intangible digital vulnerabilities are increasingly having real-world practical consequences. This is a trend that will only increase as technology’s influence over everyday life continues to expand.

“The notion that there’s this thing called “cybersecurity” that’s distinct from this other thing called “security” — that’s an idea that is disappearing,” Weber said. “This change is going to have some significant implications for all of us over the next 10 years.”

Of these implications, many of the most important ones will affect the cybersecurity workforce. To meet the cybersecurity challenges of the future, companies and governments will need a new kind of cybersecurity worker.
The growing, evolving cybersecurity workforce

The cybersecurity workforce gap is real: By 2022, the projected shortage of cybersecurity workers will reach 1.8 million, according to the Center for Cyber Safety and Education. This challenge extends beyond technology companies to those in healthcare, finance, and manufacturing. It’s also vexing the United States government, which has found that its own cybersecurity hiring has been hindered by “persistent recruiting, hiring, and retention challenges,” according to a June 2018 report from The Office of Management and Budget.

“Right now, there’s a real and significant shortage of people with the technical skills,” said Weber. “Everyone everywhere is struggling to fill these jobs.”….

DDT  is contaminating water all over the US and Australia

Yesterday (Sept. 6), a US House of Representatives hearing convened to ask why federal authorities haven’t regulated PFAS, a little-known class of chemicals that has sparked one of the biggest drinking-water contamination revelations in recent decades. The US Environmental Protection Agency has known for decades it could have a PFAS problem on its hands, and now hundreds of communities across the US are finding the chemicals in their water.

“How do we create that sense of urgency?” representative Debbie Dingell, a Michigan Democrat, asked the head of the EPA’s office of drinking water. “PFAS in Michigan is scaring people more than the Flint water crisis.” In Battle Creek, Michigan, PFAS levels in the groundwater were recently found to be up to 757 times higher than the recommended limit—and the recommended limit was found to be as much as 10 times higher than what could really be considered safe. That’s just one case; Department of Defense and Northeastern University data tally 172 known contaminated sites, and those numbers do not account for contaminated public water systems, which the Environmental Working Group estimates could add up to over 1,500 additional sites….

‘Five Eyes’ Governments Demand Back Door Access To Social Media Data..

The battle between Technocrats and governments will heat up to fever pitch. Governments want Big Tech’s data and Technocrats hate politicians. There is no easy out. Technocracy’s Utopian dream is exclusive to Technocrats, who believe only they possess the technology to pull it off. ⁃ TN Editor

A pact of five nation states dedicated to a global “collect it all” surveillance mission has issued a memo calling on their governments to demand tech companies build backdoor access to their users’ encrypted data — or face measures to force companies to comply.

The international pact — the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, known as the so-called “Five Eyes” group of nations — quietly issued the memo last week demanding that providers “create customized solutions, tailored to their individual system architectures that are capable of meeting lawful access requirements.”

This kind of backdoor access would allow each government access to encrypted call and message data on their citizens. If the companies don’t voluntarily allow access, the nations threatened to push through new legislation that would compel their help….


Swiss bishops must report sex abuse regardless of victims wishes, say church chiefs

Bishops in Switzerland are being ordered to report suspicions of sexual abuse as the country’s highest co-ordinating body of the Roman Catholic Church aims to eradicate crimes that have plagued the religion for decades.

The Swiss Bishops Conference, the first of its kind in the world, has pledged to help hunt down perpetrators of abuse in the church by making it obligatory for members to report suspicions even if a victim does not want to pursue charges, reported AFP News.

This week the organisation discussed the issue of sexual abuse in the church in the Swiss city of St Gallen. Since 2010, some 300 people have been identified as victims of the Catholic church in Switzerland. Meanwhile the religion has been beleaguered by historic reports of abuse and violence in recent decades. The new protocol aims to scale back the shroud of secrecy that has enabled cover-ups of abuse carried out by figures inside the church….


Are these unnerving body modifications the future of fashion?

If you could reshape your foot and turn it into a platform heel, would you? Would you modify your fingers for the fall season, making them webbed and delicately lace-like? Or how about a statement piece consisting of soft, turquoise horns on either shoulder?
These are just some of the futuristic body modifications that conceptual fashion brand, A. Human, asks us to imagine with its eponymous show. The fantastical exhibition, which opens in New York City Wednesday, explores what it means to be human, with mock limbs shown alongside pieces modeled by live actors.
It isn’t always easy to tell which is which. And this sense of uncertainty — created by the blurring of fake and real — is actively encouraged, according to the show’s producer, Society of Spectacle (SOS). The month-long event is the first “tale” produced by the self-professed “live entertainment storytelling brand,” which offers immersive, theatrical experiences….


At least 37 killed or missing after powerful M6.7 quake hits Hokkaido! Japan is currently being hit by a wave of deadly natural disasters

As if a natural disaster was hiding the next one… After Super Typhoon Jebi, now a M6.6 earthquake hit Japan! And that in less than 24 hours apart. A dramatic wave of natural disasters. At least four people were killed and 33 were missing after the powerful earthquake. But the death toll is likely to rise as rescuers search houses buried by landslides.

The quake, that hit Japan 26km ESE of Chitose on September 5, 2018 at 6:07pm (UTC), is the latest episode in a miserable summer of natural disasters in Japan. According to videos, the strong tremor knocked out power to all of Hokkaido’s 5.3 million residents:


15-Y-O Boy Dies After Parents Subject Him to 40-Day Fast Seeking God’s Blessing

A Wisconsin couple whose 15-year-old son died after they forced him to join a 40-day fast in search of a blessing from God could now spend the next 25 years in prison for their negligence.

The Reedsburg Police Department in Wisconsin said in a statement Monday that Kehinde S. Omosebi, 49, walked into the department at about 4 p.m. Sunday to report the death of his son, Ayanfe O. Omosebi.

When police got to the family home, which was padlocked from the inside, they found Ayanfe’s emaciated corpse. His 11-year-old brother who was also emaciated was found alive along with his mother Titilayno A. Omosebi, 48.

A criminal complaint cited by WMTV said the couple’s home had no food inside and only had one bedroom with a bed and another room with four metal chairs placed in a square form.

Kehinde Omosebi told police the family started a 40-day fast on July 19, only drinking water so they could get blessings from God to move to Atlanta. He told police he was a minister affiliated with the Cornerstone Reformation Ministries.

Sonny Hyde, pastor of the Cornerstone Ministry Baptist Church in Reedsburg, told the Wisconsin State Journal that the family was not affiliated with his church, and that he had never heard of Cornerstone Reformation Ministries in the community….

The first AI approved to diagnose disease is tackling blindness in rural areas

During a recent checkup with his diabetes doctor in Iowa City, Kevin Sales rested his chin onto a machine that snapped some pictures of his eye. Using artificial intelligence, it analyzed his retina and, 20 seconds later later, made its diagnosis.

Diabetes is on the rise globally, and with it, diabetic retinopathy, a leading cause of blindness. About one-third of the estimated 285 million people with diabetes worldwide have signs of diabetic retinopathy. If you catch the warning signs of the disease, it’s fairly treatable. But often, the disease goes undetected for years. One reason is those afflicted typically don’t have noticeable symptoms in the early stages. That’s why doctors recommend all diabetics get an annual eye exam. Another issue is that, in many rural areas, eye doctors are scarce.

More than 50% of Americans with diabetes don’t have annual eye exams, which are undertaken by dedicated eye specialists, usually ophthalmologists. In rural areas in the US and elsewhere, the closest specialist might be several hours’ drive away. A 2015 study found that 24% of US counties had no ophthalmologists or optometrists. The situation is even more dire for people in sub-Saharan African: a 2012 study found countries in the area had fewer than three ophthalmologists per million people….

The idea for the IDx-Dr system came 20 years ago, when ophthalmologist and computer scientist Michael Abramoff noticed that some of the patients he was seeing for the first time— who were already losing their vision to diabetic retinopathy—hadn’t previously been screened for the disease. In an effort to solve the problem, he founded IDx in 2010. He started by training an AI algorithm to identify diabetic retinopathy from images of the retina. But that still required someone skilled enough to effectively operate a retinal camera. Abramoff knew he wanted to build a system that could be operated by someone with a high-school degree and minimal training. That way, virtually any doctor’s office anywhere could adopt it. “We wanted to make sure that this works with someone who has never seen a retina or looked at a retinal camera before,” he says.

So the company then designed a second algorithm, which guides anyone through the camera-operating process necessary to produce high-quality images, and then analyzes whether the results are good enough to make a diagnosis. The operator snaps a few pictures of a patient’s eye, which get uploaded to the company’s cloud-based software. Within minutes, the system sends back its analysis. A positive result means the patient gets referred to an eye specialist for further evaluation, and a negative result simply means the patient should be screened again in a year….
