The Indicted and the Dead "IndyWatch Feed National"

To be law-abiding and breathing: These are, generally speaking, two commendable qualifications for a candidate to meet when seeking public office. But, as our republic occasionally reminds us, they are not requirements.

For the indicted and the dead have been elected before, and likely will be again. This past election was no different, providing several notable examples of criminal defendants being elected to office, as well as a congressman who sued an elderly constituent for defamation. And, of course, this list would not be complete without the dead pimp who won a race in Nevada.

While it is unusual for such candidates to win elections, it is not unheard of, particularly in Congress. Analysis found that at least 25 sitting congressmen since 1987 have been elected despite being under indictment.

Rep. Chris Collins (R), 27th District of New York: Indicted

Despite being under indictment on federal insider trading charges, incumbent Republican Chris Collins narrowly defeated his Democratic opponent Nate McMurray by 2,910 votes, or 1.1 percent of the vote.

According to prosecutors, Collins learned of failed drug trials involving Innate, an Australian biotech firm, then immediately called his son to tell him to sell $1.4 million in company stock. Collins was captured on video making the call during a June 22 congressional picnic on the White House lawn. At the time, Collins was already the subject of an ethics investigation because of his dealings with Innate.

World leaders gathered in Paris led global commemorations on Sunday to mark 100 years since the end of World War I at a time of growing nationalism and diplomatic tensions.

Around 70 leaders including US and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin were marking the centenary of the 1918 Armistice in the French capital starting at 11 a.m. local time (1000 GMT).

Ceremonies in New Zealand, Australia, India, Hong Kong and Myanmar marked the start of the memorial events worldwide for a conflict that involved millions of troops from colonized countries in Asia and Africa.

The leaders of Commonwealth nations whose forces were deployed under British command 100 years ago also sounded a message of peace and hope for the world in the new century.

This was a war in which India was not directly involved yet our soldiers fought world over, just for the cause of peace, said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter on Sunday.

For our tomorrows, they gave their today, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison told people gathered at the Remembrance Day national ceremony in Canberra.

Camille Paglia: It's time for a new map of the gender world "IndyWatch Feed National"

I discovered Camille Paglia's work when I was pursuing my undergraduate arts education at The University of Adelaide, South Australia, in the early 2000s. I was deeply disillusioned with the courses in my arts degree and their monomaniacal focus on social constructionism, and was looking for criticism of Michel Foucault on the internet. I stumbled across a 1991 op-ed written by Paglia for The New York Times, in which she described the followers of Lacan, Derrida and Foucault, as "fossilized reactionaries," and "the perfect prophets for the weak, anxious academic personality." I was hooked. It wasn't long before I discovered that my university's library contained each of her books, including the essay collections Vamps and Tramps and Sex, Art and American Culture. For the final year of my arts degree, (before pursuing my studies in psychology) I spent the bulk of my time at the university reading Paglia in the library. She was like a revelation. Her work was subversive but erudite,...

The Moon Completely Flipped on the Other Side of the World, And Everyone Is Freaking Out "IndyWatch Feed National"

Sure, there are a lot of small interesting things about the universe we call home but a lot of them go overlooked. For instance, did you ever stop to think about the moon and how its flipped on the other side of the world?

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere youre used to the way the moon looks for you so if you were to travel anywhere in the Southern hemisphere you would notice quite the difference. For instance, you might feel quite odd about the moon if you were looking at it from Australia as it would not look the same. The moon would literally be upside down in comparison to what youre used to seeing.

The constellations also do this but are not as dramatic of a change. If you were somehow able to walk from one hemisphere to the other you could even see the moon changing and rotating from one way to the next. Basically, this happens because the Southern hemisphere of our planet is upside down compared to the Northern hemisphere.

Jake Clark an astronomer from the University of Southern Queensland in Australia told Science Alert as follows on this topic:

From our perspective, the Moon and the night sky, is actually rotated 180 degrees compared to our Northern Hemispherical friends,

In the south we see the Moons dark Oceanus Procellarum sea in the south-east corner compared to in the north-west corner for a northern observer.

Next time youre planning a holiday travel to a country near the equator during a crescent moon, when the Moon sets it will look like a smiling face,

It depends upon where youre located on Earth but generally the constellations we see in the Southern Hemisphere are rotated again by 180 degrees compared to the Northern Hemisphere,

In Australia, Orions leg and belt is commonly known as The Saucepan, at it looks like a big old cooking pot!

This might not sound like much but if youve never stopped to think about it, it might be quite mind-blowing. What do you think about things like this? I for one find them to be quite fascinating.

Robots will soon match humans in creativity, emotional intelligence "IndyWatch Feed National"

As if we didnt already have enough to worry about when it comes to artificially intelligent machines being able to perform many tasks faster and better than humans can, potentially stealing our jobs in the future and presenting what some technologists worry is an existential threat to humanity, now it appears AI will soon be able to match humans at being, well, human, too.

An Australian AI expert, Toby Walsh, said during the Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney recently that he thinks AI will learn and possibly match human traits like creativity, emotional intelligence and adaptability in less than 50 years. And Walsh a Scientia Professor of Artificial Intelligence at UNSW Sydney predicts robots will be as smart as humans by the year 2062.

But dont worry about them ultimately presenting some sort of threat or something as drastic as potentially wiping out mankind, he adds. Weve been rather mislead by this idea that the robots are going to take over, Walsh told Time Out. The robots have no desires of their own, they do exactly what we tell them to. Im much more worried about incompetence than malevolence that well get the machines to do something and we havent thought carefully about how its going to interact with our complex world Healthcare, transport, how we manufacture things, how we educate ourselves, how we go out and play its going to touch almost every aspect of our lives.

Its interesting to think about this other side of increasingly smarter machines and to ask questions about the fundamental nature of consciousness and emotion. These right-brain characteristics of being human, things like creativity and emotion and the like we like to think they will save us or somehow set us apart from machines that are radically smarter, faster and better at us in other things. But if they eventually get to be as creative as us to complement their already stellar analytical capabilities, what then?

When Walsh says hes worried, though, its not about what the machines will do. Its us hes worried about. Mankind, he says, needs to do a better job of creating machines and AI systems that are aligned with our values now.

How to fight the toxic culture wars and win "IndyWatch Feed National"

My book review appears in the Weekend Australian newspaper with the great headline: What did you do in the culture wars, daddy-o?:

As soon as Donald Trump unexpectedly won the White House in 2016, commentators and instant experts claimed it was because of economic anxiety. White, working-class Americans voted for the Republican candidate in greater numbers than Hillary Clinton, and the narrative was set: ignorant and insecure voters reportedly had backed the reality TV star because they feared losing their jobs and being discarded by globalisation and free trade. This thesis was only partly true.

In April, Stanford University political scientist Diana Mutz published a study that debunked the myth. In this election, she concluded, education represented group status threat rather than being left behind economically. Those who felt that the hierarchy was being upended with whites discriminated against more than blacks, Christians discriminated against more than Muslims, and men discriminated against more than women were most likely to support Trump.

Australian writer Jeff Sparrow succinctly explains in Trigger Warnings how Trump cleverly skewered his political enemies by appealing to their anger at the elite political and media classes (despite being a member of the elite himself). By damning political correctness without ever describing what it meant, Sparrow explains, Trump convinced his opponents into calling for decorum, at a time when his supporters wanted to scream their rage. Trump and his advisers read the mood of the country well and rode it to victory.

Trigger Warnings is a rare book that takes a necessary scalpel to the leftist political persuasion of its author as much as, if not more than, the right-wing agenda he opposes. Near the beginning, Sparrow outlines the bald facts of 21st-century life. With the worlds eight richest billionaires controlling as much as the poorest half of the planets population a historian of the future might assume that the Left was ascendant: that the injustice under which the planet groaned would be fuelling radical ideas and egalitarian alternatives to the status quo. Such a historian would be wrong.

What follows is a potted history of how phrases such as political correctness and culture wars originated and how they have been weaponised today by the Right in ways that largely have trapped the Left, unsure how to respond. Sparrow writes that although right-winge...

Jo Nova on the impending power price tsunami. "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

Tsunamis can start small, a barely perceptible ripple offshore, then they break on land and all hell breaks out. One of the ripples of the power price tsunami came a few months ago when a small recycling firm in Adelaide closed with 40 jobs. There were other signs of course and bigger ones but this one got a bit of news cover and it had human scale.

The silence of the business community is surprising, or have I missed it? I dont mean the firms that are making money out of the scam, but the myriad of places with ovens and freezers like the baker who Judith met in Queensland. The one whose power bill went from 30K to 120K.

At last it seems that a leader in small business has roused from his torpor and said something.

This is the biggest business crisis Ive seen in my lifetime, said Peter Strong, chief executive of the Council of Small Business Australia. The GFC was managed and it affected everybody, but this is only Australia and we cannot see a solution.

What were hearing is terrible. Were seeing closures have already started, I fully expect there will be more closures and staff put off. When youre running a small supermarket, where do you find an extra $70,000?
Well said Peter Strong. But be careful what you wish for. He seems to admire the Finkel proposals. And he blames Tony Abbott and the pesky backbenchers for the painful and protracted paralysis of power policy. Better to blame the RET Peter!

Reflexively abusing Tony Abbott is a bit like blaming Trump or GW Bush or John Howard every time something goes wrong.

But wait, who launched the RET?

PS. Some other things that I cant allow to pass without comment. He seems to think that the GFC was managed, is he referring to the needless plunge into serious debt that Kevin and Ken engineered? Does he really think it is only Australia with power price problems. Has he never heard of Germany and all the other places with RETs?

Be strong Peter, be prepared to mobilise your membership and their employees to generate serious concern and political clout and above all be prepared to find out what is the real root of the problem.

PPS. Tell them that Daniel Andrews deliberately closed Hazelwood and tell them before they vote in the Victorian election!

UPDATE. Calling out Clive Palmer, a nice comment by a Jo Nova threadster.

Fusion Whisky and Adelphi Distillery Launch Whisky on the Blockchain "IndyWatch Feed National"

Fusion Whisky and the Adelphi Distillery have announced the launch of The Winter Queen their latest product to use blockchain technology to track its provenance.

The Winter Queen Marries 17th Century Royalty with 21st Century Tech

It is not only finance that blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt. Other industries are rapidly making moves to explore the innovations implications. One of these is the whisky distillation and distribution sector.

Fusion Whisky have joined forces with the Adelphi Distillery to launch a special blend called The Winter Queen. Each bottle of the special edition whisky will be registered on the blockchain. This will allow buyers to be sure that the product they receive is exactly what the makers claim it to be.

The Winter Queen is the second whisky from either firm to use such a distribution method. The previous one was an Australian blend by Fusion Whisky called The Brisbane. It was released in March of this year. Adelphi has also launched two editions of its own AD spirit on the blockchain.

The blend launched today is also the second time The Winter Queen has been released. The previous occasion was in February of this year. This edition is to celebrate the coronation of Elizabeth Stuart, a Scottish princess crowned Queen of Bohemia in the seventeenth century. The whisky itself is said to have echoes of Parma Violets (a popular U.K. candy) and highland toffee, whilst retaining a smokey finish.

Master blender and managing director of Adelphi Distillery, Alex Bruce, spoke to BQ Live about the decision to use blockchain technology to distribute the second release of the spirit:

Such was the success of and acclaim for The Winter Queen, we were very keen to bring out another edition. This is our most complex fusion to date, with more than six different malt whiskies going into the blend.

The idea behind releasing whisky using blockchain technology is to allow its drinker to check the provenance of their liquor for themselves. It is supposed to let them see the whiskys journey from field to bottle. Further details about the history of Elizabeth Stuart are also provided on the entry to the distributed ledger....

The lies and failure of government in the Bourke St knifeman attack "IndyWatch Feed National"

One of the primary objectives of (Victoria) Police as stated in the Victoria Police Manual - Policy Rules is to "preserve the peace, protect life and property, prevent offences", as seen below in an excerpt from the manual.


The 31 year old Somali-born man who knifed the co-owner Sisto Malaspina of Melbourne's iconic Pellegrini's cafe was known to both federal and state police.

According to what was presented in the mainstream media, the 31 year old attacker was not a threat "to the national security environment", which is totally different from being a threat to the general population, which he was.

Victorian Premier Mr. Daniel Andrews states:

"We condemn it. We also take this opportunity to thank those very brave and dedicated members of Victoria Police who did all of us proud in their very quick response in very dangerous circumstances. Theyve done each and every one of us proud."

The real action was taken by a homeless man by the name of Mr. Michael Rogers dubbed "trolley man" who subdued the attacker before police took any action.


Victoria Police have not done "each and every one of us proud" as claimed by Mr. Andrews, but rather failed in their duty to prevent "offences...

Labor party leader Luke Foley resigns in Australia in #MeToo alleged inappropriate behavior "IndyWatch Feed National"

Image result for Luke Foley, photos

Labor party leader Luke Foley resigns over harassment allegations

The leader of the opposition in Australias most populous state was replaced on Saturday after he resigned over a #Metro row sparked by alleged inappropriate behavior.

Former New South Wales (NSW) state Labor party leader Luke Foley resigned on Thursday after being accused of sexually harassing an ABC journalist, four months before a state election he had been in a position to win.

Foley denies the allegations and said he has hired lawyers to sue for defamation over the claims.

NSW Labor deputy leader Michael Daley defeated opposition water spokesman Chris Minns to win the vacant leadership in a caucus meeting on Saturday afternoon.

He promised to build his government on four pillars: investing in schools and hospitals, lowering the cost of living and lowering energy bills.

We will make Sydney more livable, and stop the unfairness and overdevelopment in the planning system, he told reporters in Sydney.

Daley also said his party would re-task $2.2 billion earmarked by the states conservative Liberal government to upgrade sporting stadiums to instead train young people for employment.

Daley will lead NSW Labor to the March 23 election in Australias largest state, but despite Foleys resignation the scandal is likely to dent Labors chance of winning power.

A ReachTel poll in September had Labor and the ruling conservative coalition running neck-and-neck in the state.

The NSW economy accounts for one-third of Australias gross domestic product and at $400 billion is larger than the economies of Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Should governments actively direct people and investment to regional centres with a view to easing congestion in major cities (e.g. via tax concessions or government grants)? Should they invest in super stadiums and new convention centres to stimulate growth, or would it be better to invest those dollars in local schools and hospitals, for example?  Should regional councils push for a decentralisation of state public administration and a relocation of public service jobs to their regions?

This is just a sample of the interesting questions that I expect will be considered in this seminar. I very much suspect the perennial issue of whether there should be a separate state of North Queensland...

Man shot dead after fire and fatal stabbing "IndyWatch Feed National"

Melbourne stabbings: Somali-born Australian inspired by Isil, say police, as group claims attackA man who set a car on fire and stabbed three people one fatally in the Australian city of Melbourne has died in hospital after being shot by police.

Authorities now say they are treating the attack as a terror-related.

The attacker, 31, was shot after confronting officers on a busy city street, authorities said. He was taken into custody in a critical condition.

The two survivors are in hospital, neither are in a serious condition. The suspect has not been named.

Police said they were not looking for anyone further at this early stage.

We dont believe there is an ongoing threat at this stage, but certainly we are treating it as a terrorism incident, said Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton.

He said the suspect, who is of Somali origin, was someone that is known to both local police and federal intelligence, adding it was mainly in respect to relatives who are certainly persons of interest to us.

Somali-born Australian who set fire to a gas-laden truck in the centre of Melbourne and fatally stabbed one person before he was shot by police was inspired by Islamic State but did not have direct links with the group, Australian police said on Saturday.

In an attack described by the state premier as an act of evil, the man sped a utility vehicle down Bourke Street, one of the citys busiest thoroughfares, and then stopped and apparently set it alight before randomly stabbing pedestrians.

A man aged 74, who had been stabbed in the face, died at the scene.

Two other men, aged 26 and 58, are in a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) claimed responsibility for the attack.

Police identified the man responsible for Fridays attack as 30-year-old Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, 31,  whose 21-year-old brother was accused of plotting a mass murder on New Years Eve at Federation Square last year, a city centre hub and popular tourist spot.  He is in jail awaiting trial.

Footage taken by witnesses showed the man lunging with a large knife at police, who shot him in the chest and killed him. Bystanders were yelling at police: Just shoot him, just shoot him.

Police said Shire Alis Australian passport was cancelled in 2015 after an intelligence report he planned to travel to Syria, but an assessment was made that whilst he had radical views, he posed no threat to national security.

I think it is fair to say he (Shire Ali) was inspired. He was radicalised, Au...

Early Bitcoin Pioneer Speculates Who Nakamoto Is, Gives $100 Million in Asset Away "IndyWatch Feed National"

Jeff Garzik, an early pioneer of Bitcoin, has revealed that hes given away over $100 million worth of the asset, but has no regrets about it.

Giving Money to Something He Believes In

Garzik has been in the space since 2010 after reading a blog post about Bitcoin. Writing code for it, he soon became the third-biggest contributor to Bitcoin after Satoshi Nakamoto and Gavin Andresen.

However, in a report with Bloomberg, the Bitcoin pioneer notes that the currency is not what he thought it would be. Yet, despite this, hes proud of what has been achieved so far. So much so, that in a bid to spur software work on he gave 15,678 Bitcoins away about seven years ago in developer bounties. At current prices thats around $100 million.

Garzik recalls that when Bitcoin reached $1 in 2011 a party was held to celebrate the milestone, adding it was a question whether this thing would survive at all. And theres no question of that today.

Yet, while Nakamotos idea of Bitcoin being used as private money hasnt materialised yet, Garzik is fine with it being treated as a store of value.

It is an organism, its something that evolves, he added. It hasnt evolved in the direction of high-volume payments, which is something we thought about in the very early days: getting merchants to accept Bitcoins. But on the store-of-value side its unquestionably a success.

Related Reading: Jeff Garzik Builds Thousand Year Cryptocurency

Will the Real Nakamoto Please Stand Up

Having worked closely, if only online, with Nakamoto, Garzik thinks he knows who it may be.

Speaking of the late Floridian Dave Kleiman, he said that this this gentleman was self taught and that it matches his coding style. He went on to add that:

Eating Out: Two Tables Cafe (Pizza for Dinner edition) "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"

I've posted before about my love of Two Tables Cafe. They recently changed their opening hours during the week from breakfast/lunch to dinner time. The highlight of their dinner menu is definitely the pizzas! There are three flavours, plus their garlic bread. The menu also has burgers, acai bowls, desserts, and there are normally a couple of pasta specials. But let's talk about pizza.

First up, their garlic bread. Which is basically a garlic pizza. This is lovely, salty, and garlicky. It is basically an entire pizza on it's own though, which can be challenging if you are one person eating this and another pizza, but I can report that leftovers are excellent. All pizzas from here pass the important leftover test (they are excellent cold the next day).

Garlic Bread at Two Tables Cafe


My favourite pizza of all is the Melanzane. This has BBQ sauce, eggplant, pumpkin, and onion on it and it is divine! One of the best pizzas I have ever had. This is the one I definitely recommend that everyone must eat.

Martha was picked up as a stray and brought to an overcrowded rural shelter in Australia, where staffers thought the kindest thing to do was put 12-year-old Martha out of her misery. Luckily, rescuers with Pets Haven Animal Shelter disagreed.

A thorough workup revealed that Martha was suffering from a disorder known as dry eye and a severe heart murmur, and was entirely deaf. Martha needed such expensive and time-consuming treatment that the rescue deemed her unfit for adoption.

Riders urged to check motorcycle spokes "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Riders have been urged to check the spokes on their motorcycle wheels more frequently in the wake of one rider finding his badly handling bike had 10 loose spokes.

The result of loose spokes can be poor handling and can cause rapid tyre deflation on tubeless tyres.

Brisbane rider Mark Taylor says he had loose spokes on his four-month-old BMW R 1200 GS tightened during a tyre change at 3000km.

He had only ridden another couple of thousands kilometres before 10 spokes came loose again, causing the rear end to slide around.

Loose spokesMark and his GS

The bike nearly bucked me off coming down a mountain road and started to oversteer in the corners, he says.

It scared the life out of me. I thought I was going to buy the farm.

The dealer confirmed its a faulty wheel with 10 loose spokes.

BMW Motorrad Australia have no replacements, so my bike will be off the road for up to five weeks until a new wheel comes from Germany.

Other riders on BMW internet forums have also complained of the same issue.

Pamela Anderson Speaks Up Against the #MeToo Movement, Leaving Modern Feminists Outraged "IndyWatch Feed National"

Former Playboy model and Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has attracted a great deal of attention following an interview on Sunday with Australias 60 Minutes. During the Interview, Anderson voiced her controversial opinions regarding the most recent feminist movements.

In all fairness, Anderson included a disclaimer during the conversation, stating, Im going to speak my mind. Im sorry, Im not politically correct. However, many believe that her comments went a step further than just pushing the boundaries on political correctness. When discussing the most recent wave of feminism and the battle for womens rights, Anderson states that she believes that feminism today is a bore.

I think (Playboy) was very empowering and no one forced me to do anything, explained Anderson. I think this feminism can go too far Im a feminist but I think that this third wave feminism is a bore, I think it paralyzes men I think that this Me Too movement is a bit too much for me. Im sorry, Ill probably get killed for saying that.

Pamela Anderson isnt the first female celebrity to take a stance against the Me Too movement in this way. Earlier this year French film start Catherine Deneuve made news when she referred to the #MeToo movement as a witch hunt. Her opinions were met with great resistance, leading her to write a letter in the French newspaper Liberation apologizing to the victims that may have felt attacked by the statement.

Daesh claims responsibility for deadly Melbourne attack "IndyWatch Feed National"

Daesh has claimed responsibility for the deadly Melbourne attack on Friday.

The groups Amaq news website did not provide any evidence for the claim.

Police work at the crime scene following a stabbing incident in Melbourne on Friday, November 9. (AFP)

Australian police said the knife attack was an act of terror, revealing that the deceased suspect was originally from Somalia and was known to intelligence agencies.

The attack during the afternoon rush hour brought central Melbourne to a standstill. Hundreds of people watched from behind barricades as police tried to apprehend the attacker.

Police said the man got out of a pickup truck, which then caught fire, and attacked three bystanders with a knife. He also attempted to attack police who arrived on the scene before being shot in the chest by an officer.

The suspect died later at a hospital. One of the victims also died, while the two others were hospitalized.

Police said the attackers vehicle contained several barbecue gas cylinders in the back. A bomb squad rendered them safe without any exploding.

Victoria state police Commissioner Graham Ashton said the suspect, who was originally from Somalia, was known to police and the incident was being treated as terrorism.

From what we know of that individual we are treating this as a terrorism incident, Ashton told reporters, adding that the police counterterrorism command was working on the case, as well as homicide detectives.

Police say stabbing attack in Australia linked to terrorism "IndyWatch Feed National"

 A knife-wielding man stabbed three people, one fatally, in Australias second-largest city on Friday in an attack police linked to terrorism.

The attack during the afternoon rush hour brought central Melbourne to a standstill. Hundreds of people watched from behind barricades as police tried to apprehend the attacker.

Police said the man got out of a pickup truck, which then caught fire, and attacked three bystanders with a knife. He also attempted to attack police who arrived on the scene before being shot in the chest by an officer.

The suspect died later at a hospital. One of the victims also died, while the two others were hospitalized.

Police said the attackers vehicle contained several barbecue gas cylinders in the back. A bomb squad rendered them safe without any exploding.

Victoria state police Commissioner Graham Ashton said the suspect, who was originally from Somalia, was known to police and the incident was being treated as terrorism.

From what we know of that individual we are treating this as a terrorism incident, Ashton told reporters, adding that the police counterterrorism command was working on the case, as well as homicide detectives.

Hes known to police mainly in respect to relatives that he has which certainly are persons of interest to us, and hes someone that accordingly is know to both Victorian police and the Federal intelligence authorities, he said.

Japan, US Prepare Plans for Conflict with China in East China Sea "IndyWatch Feed National"

In recent months, we have seen increased military provocations by the US on the edge of Chinas territorial waters. More worrying however, if the fact the US are attempting to drag Japan into their geopolitical chess match. In addition to this, British Royal Naval ships have also being used to provoke China in near the Xisha Islands in the South China Sea.

All of this is happening amid a backdrop of a new US-led international trade war, in which the Trump Administration is attempting to renegotiate the legacy system of globalization and multilateralism, and into a new phase of nationalist-oriented neomercantilism, and possibly new regional power blocks. For this reason, its difficult to know exactly how much of this sabre rattling is part of the the new realignment, and how much represents a genuine American thirst for a new world war.

Regardless, Japan remains the key power-balancer in the East Asia region, and which direction it swings will likely determine to over-arching direction of events. For this reason, its important to keep an eye on this recent development (see below).

Southfront reports

The US and Japan appear to be preparing for a conflict with China over the Senkaku Islands, according to News Corp Australia.

The tiny islands are located between the northern tip of Taiwan and the Japanese home islands and have been under dispute for a while, however they appear to be heating up.

Beijing claims that the islands are part of its historical inheritance. According to the Australian outlet, Chinese fishing boats are continuously performing aggressive incursions, in a way that they appear to be organized as a state militia. The Chinese coast guard was also recently militarized and is seeing tensions in the East China Sea.

Reportedly, Japan and the United States are drawing up battle plans to enable their forces to fight together against any Chinese incursion.

Effectiveness of an improved form of insecticide-based diatomaceous earth against four stored grain pests. "IndyWatch Feed National"

PMID:  Environ Sci Pollut Res Int. 2018 Jun ;25(17):17012-17024. Epub 2018 Apr 7. PMID: 29627963 Abstract Title:  Effectiveness of an improved form of insecticide-based diatomaceous earth against four stored grain pests on different grain commodities. Abstract:  The effectiveness of Grain-Guard, an improved form of diatomaceous earth (DE), with low risk to the environment, was evaluated against the storage pests Liposcelis paeta, Cryptolestes ferrugineus, Rhyzopertha dominica, and Tribolium castaneum on four grain commodities, wheat, rice, maize and sorghum. The overall mortality of stored grain pests increased with the rise of application rate and exposure intervals of diatomaceous earth and decreased over 120 days of post-treatment period. Our results revealed that mortality of adults 14 days post-disclosure was>80% on wheat at the start of post-treatment than rice, maize, and sorghum, respectively. During the first 60 days of post-treatment, adult mortality increased, whereas later on, a steady decrease in adult mortality was observed. Considerable differences in dose rates were observed on mortality levels along with grain commodities. Following 14 days of exposure, all adults of four species were dead on wheat at 100 ppm and on rice at 150 ppm except maize and sorghum. The suppression of progeny was noticeably higher at the beginning of post-treatment duration while after 60-days of post-treatment, progeny numbers started to increase with the rise in post-treatment durations. This new improved DE formulation was found to be effective at dose rates that are extensively lower than required with previous DE formulations and will contribute to lower the risk of health and environment.
