[image: RQ-170 Sentinel]Iran's state TV is reporting that the country has successfully tested its own version of a U.S.-made drone based on one it captured in 2011. The report quotes Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the aerospace division of the elite Revolutionary Guard, as saying the test was carried out on Monday. He said a video of the drone flight will be released soon. Iran had displayed the drone earlier this year. Read more

Seoul to Buy W1.5 Trillion Worth of U.S. Interceptor Missiles

Ko Savonije at Naval Open Source INTelligence - 20 hours ago
[image: Patriot PAC-2]Seoul will purchase some W1.5 trillion worth of PAC-3 interceptor missiles from the U.S. (US$1=W1,094). The U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency last Thursday said that the State Department approved the sale of 136 PAC-3 missiles, including equipment, components, training, and support. The major contractors are Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. The PAC-3 is to form the core of Korea's air and missile defense system and intercepts incoming ballistic missiles at an altitude of 30-40 km. The entire project will cost an estimated W17 trillion. Read more

France to Canada: Buy Weapons From Us, Not From Americans

French firms, including shipbuilder DCNS, want to pursue contracts for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) program, the future fleet that will replace the country’s destroyers and frigates. Although a Canadian shipyard has already been selected to build the vessels, contracts to provide weapons, systems integration and warship design can be expected to be let in the ... more »

Welcome to the Kid'Sleep Prize Package giveaway, sponsored by Claessens'Kidsand hosted by Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro. The Kid’Sleep Moon is part of a line of sleep training and time teaching/time organization products invented by a father of 6! The Kid’Sleep Moon has many benefits, as a sleep trainer and night light for young children and an alarm clock for older children. It helps young children have an understanding of when it's time to get out of bed and when it's not. It is a great tool for nighttime self regulation, and the result is that both parents and children g... more »

Putin Signs Secret Pact to Crush NATO?

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
[image: Putin Signs Secret Pact to Crush NATO] I do suspect that Putin, like his communist predecessors is hugely inspired by Czarism which saw borders as dynamic rather than foundations of permanent stability. Thus his international forays will have long term goals, not least of which is surely to resolve the western borders to the liking of Russians. That is likely mostly done except perhaps for the White Russians of Belorussia to voluntarily rejoin the Russian polity and a modest resolution with the Ukraine.The more difficult problem is Eastward. Thus creating a China Russi... more »

The 1971 Aznalcollar Incident Revisited

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
This report is interesting simply because it is by a profoundly uninformed witness and as close to as virgin report as we may ever get. Otherwise it conforms to the 100,000 extant reports out there all confirming a visitation by effectively odd humanoids that can never be mistaken for neighbors anywhere. Again built up areas are avoided but way more interesting is that they show no particular concern over scaring a lone human or even possibly interacting with him. in this case the fear was simply too great for that to happen. We now have a great number of interaction rep... more »

Strange Sounds Spook Couple in Pennsylvania woods

We may be dealing with a stratified layer of the atmosphere that provides a horizontal sound channel between layers. The general stillness supports all that. Then a simple burst of sheet lightening close to the ground would energerize this layer to produce an expanding shock wave that would simply pass overhead while producing an audible sound such as we just heard. I suspect it is that simple and the conforming conditions argue forcefully for just that. There are certainly known electromagnetic effects available that are strongest with these conditions as well and this may act ... more »

I find this all unconvincing. It is natural to determine indivisibility and recipes to make something new. That we did continously until we learned to progressively extend out senses and this process then confirmed the implied systems of thought as sufficiently valid. None of them ever emerged as a crystal clear thought experiment that could not be evaded in discourse. For that we had to wait for this century and the development of mathematical rigor. For some reason it is attractive to some to assign modern understanding to some distant thinker who may well have been inflential.... more »

Whether these cultures collapsed before columbus which is the prevailing opinion or actually collapsed between 1500 AD and 1600 AD as did happen in Mexico and much of South America remains to be resolved. Whenever it happened the result was exactly the same. A decimation of manpower and a huge contraction in the area under control.

Principle, Rigor and Execution Matter in U.S. Foreign Policy with George Friedman

This is a worthy article and it is fair which is refreshing. It clarifies the real constraints under which the USA must execute its foreign policy. It also becomes clear why it moves so slowly if at all. Presidents have involved themselves in foreign policy because they can without much serious constraint. In everything else they usually appeared to be bogged down. Yet this outlines the real world constraints. Unfortunately, doing nothing is also an option and often the unwise one. It really means that all choices are bad as present day Iraq shows us. *Principle, Rigor... more »

Urban Predators

It took a long time of course, but that is best understood by the sharp change in human density in rural america. The boy with a rifle and his dog is not able to suppress the population of small carnivores or even the rabbits although that was always no contest. A thousand acres is simply too much to patrol and populations have nicely rebounded over the past fifty years. The result is a serious recovery in carnivore population and this leads naturally to penetration of the urban space along with prey animals were hunting pressure is even lower. We should welcome it of course. Pig... more »

How Thunderstorms Could Help Save African Elephants

Not quite of course but we are all on the right track. I suspect that the elephants are actually up to the task of managing herds and carnivores and that they would do so willingly as well. That naturally protects them as they become integral to herd maintenance and ecological upkeep. I do know that we can communicate mind to mind although it is hardly developed yet. Yet that can be good enough. The tasks fit all our needs as well even if we have not identified the need to include the elephants. The task is far too onerous for the individual human caretaker and very dangerous. Thi... more »

New Math Shows ‘True Scale’ of Ebola Outbreak

The important information here is that the application of a simple one week quarantine can work well enough to prevent the disease running away. If it does start to get out of control, then applying that is what will work best. We can live with a one week pause in travel for example. During that week we scout out victims and wait until no more are reporting in. Communities can be declared free and access opened up for them. This is rough and ready but the key idea is to halt transmission and to buy time for all victims to emerge and be isolated. It is a dynamic approach but should... more »

That charter school in NYC paying their teachers $125K per annum: they do all right, but no better than similar no excuses chains. So much for the grand experiment. In the interest of full disclosure, I applied to teach at that school, twice. The first time, right before I finished my PhD and the second […]

On the Cusp of Nuclear War?

thwap at thwap's schoolyard - 1 day ago
There's a lot of other serious shit going down everywhere. But I have to say that this crisis in the Ukraine has me spooked. And the fighting in Iraq and Syria. It's all connected to the USA's deluded attempts to maintain full spectrum dominance over the entire earth, all of human civilization. From 1945-1991 they had to contend with a rival super-power. The USSR's implosion meant that the USA was now the world's only super-power. But by 1991, the USA had its own problems. And, for the rest of the world, 1991 wasn't 1945. In 1945, Europe and Japan were in ruins. India and China were... more »

Why do we label difficult text “frustrational?” Is that even a word?

Shaun Johnson at @ THE CHALK FACE - 1 day ago
Many districts mandate the use of DIBELS and similar assessments to track progress in reading. Anyone familiar with these methods know that the complicated task of reading cannot be defined so myopically. Take Amplify’s mCLASS, for example. If you use this tool, you’ll notice that reading tasks that are too difficult for students are by default […]

The world is on the brink of a new Cold War. That's the warning from the last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, who's in the German capital for the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Former MI-5 intelligence officer Annie Machon joins us live with her thoughts.

Science Fiction can not hold a candle to the now day things that are real

I walked out of the house in 1977 a high school graduate with my backpack in this mess along with my bong were books that I thought would help me make the great right cross from dependent to salary bring and fifty years later and a world of experience I am still paralzed between the obious choices and the dark chocalte work that might bring a thought or a code to the world as something bold to behold. If I had known in 77 that advertising would rule the world I might have done something to bring more bling but at that time I would have vomited and stuck with a path to make real mone... more »

How Deep Will The Divide Be Between Corporate Republicans And For-Profit Republicans? And Between Real Democrats And ConservaDems?

It's long but Alan Minsky did a thorough biopsy of the tumor debilitating the Beltway Democrats. He starts by acknowledging what the mainstream media won't-- that the shellacking last Tuesday was a debacle for the Blue Dogs and New Dems who make up the Republican wing of the Democratic Party, what Minsky calls "the centrist Clinton/Obama Democratic Party." His premise is that their misery is an opportunity for normal, non-Beltway, non-careerist, progressive, grassroots Democrats. And that opportunity is what the Goldwaterites seized after they disaster in 1965 and what the Tea Part... more »

We are bored

Steve at Thinking Aboot - 1 day ago
Rich, famous, poor and destitute. We are bored out of our minds because there are really no more questions to be answered. We know no matter what the questions that have twarted us for centuries are all now on a path of revelation. How else can you explain the Pope being a fan of the Big Bang Theory. What to do with this fucking boredom. Travel is in but if you have traveled its more pain in the as than pleasure. I could do the same things at home with a bottle of wine if you know what I mean. ABC means in Euro travel speak another bloody castle. I never in my lifetime want to spend... more »
