2015: arXiv identifiers get a new digit

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 33 minutes ago
Paul Ginsparg began to maintain xxx.lanl.gov – the server later renamed as arXiv.org – in Summer 1991. Since that time, the number of papers submitted each month would be growing. You can see that despite the mild acceleration in recent 5 years, the increase was much closer to a simple linear increse from 0 in Fall 1991 to almost 9,000 in recent months (the latter number may be translated to 400+ papers on an average "live" day). Because 9,000 is rather close to 10,000 which is 10 to the fourth power, you may be worried about the identifiers of the papers. Since April 2007, the u... more »

Independent Test Results on EEStor Technology

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 33 minutes ago
This is an important benchmark mainly because we are seeing a production unit perform as advertised. As i posted a couple of years back, optimism was misplaced in terms of time frames to deliverables. Yet that day has now arrived and a sense of getting over the hump has to be read into this pronouncement. It is also clearly meeting expectations as a game changer. I am no longer nearly as excited myself simply because i am past this technology in terms of core commercial energy systems. Yet it will be important as we need storage capacity to manage supply oscill... more »

Putin in a Dangerous Cash/Debt Spiral

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 33 minutes ago
The point is well made that sixty dollar oil and dropping demand is a catastrophe for the Russian government which has not fostered a healthy enough replacement economy. It is also fair to say that the Crimean adventure has now been called off and that extracation is the order of the day. There is scant to gain and runaway defense costs to incur. The only good that may come out of this is that the looming crisis may well focus the mind and we will see economic reform that we can respect and support. Otherwise Putin will go down as another dabbler whose imagination was seri... more »

World's Oldest Engravings Discovered on 500,000-Year-Old Shells

This is great news. This had to be true, but proving it was always be a challenge. It is even from the place it should be. I made the conjecture a decade ago that tribal humanity first arose as part of a seaside culture in the Indonesian Islands. I had a lot of good reasons not least that the seaside can support large populations here in particular and still does by the way. I suspect this culture evolved there over at least five millions of years and tool development evolved at the same time. And yes, there would be a lot of shells, most of them deep underwater.

*December 23, 2014 *(Vladimir Platov - NEO) - Today US intelligence services seem to finally have become aware of the potential damage a cyber-attack can inflict, therefore Washington is placing particular stress on enhancing its “combat capabilities” in virtual space. Therefore, not only the CIA, but the NSA and Pentagon have started getting substantial resources on an annual basis in order to be able to create the most advanced cyber-weapons conceivable. In 2013 alone Washington has allocated one billion dollars to the NSA and 685 million dollars for the CIA for them to carry out... more »

Here uber economist Paul Craig Roberts is interviewed for his views of Washington’s pressure on Russia and where it all may end. PCR responded that western financial institutions, e.g., the World Bank, IMF, and SWIFT currency transfer bank have been exploitive of the rest of the world, which therefore may soon abandon them. Asked what may happen to Russia, PCR explains that the “stupid” people running Washington have unknowingly invited all manners of “black swans,” i.e., unexpected events of large magnitude and grave consequences. For example Russia could retaliate for pressure on the ruble by delaying payment of its debts to European banks in 2015, which would promptly crash virtually all of them. Alternately, Russia may buy gold on the paper-gold COMEX and demand payment in bullion, as is anyone’s right. And if they are ever refused, COMEX (representing 80 times more paper gold than its supposed bullion bank) it would crash, whereupon the demand for (and dollar price of) gold bullion would sky rocket. Another thing Russia could do would be to use its dollar holdings to buy up all the western world’s (greatly devalued) rubles and subsequently demand that any one dealing with Russia must either buy revalued-in-dollars rubles or be members of the BRICS countries, which would pay with their own currency at mutually agreed exchange rates. Finally, although PCR doesn’t think he would do it, Putin could announce that Russia will no longer sell energy to NATO, which would result in its instant disintegration as a military threat.

Never forget: conservatives tortured Jesus and then murdered him Conservatives' infatuation with torture has a long sordid history. Sunday when Kevin Drum wrote a column for *Mother Jones*, Let's Blame Conservatives For All the Killings They're Responsible For, the first thing I thought of was Jesus Christ. Conservatives didn't just murder Jesus, they used "national security" as an excuse for first torturing him, in fact, torturing him to death. How Christians can condone torture-- and many do-- has always been beyond my ken. Anyway, Drum was reacting to the divisive and subversive p... more »

Air Force Leaders Admit Nuclear Problems, But Will Fixes Work?

Ko Savonije at Naval Open Source INTelligence - 22 hours ago
[image: Nuclear launch control simulator]Faced with one of its biggest challenges in years — repairing a troubled nuclear missile corps — the Air Force has taken an important first step by admitting, after years of denial, that its problems run deep and wide. Less certain is whether it will find all the right fixes, apply them fully and convince a doubting force of launch officers, security guards and other nuclear workers that their small and narrow career field is not a dead end. The stakes are huge. The nation's strategy for deterring nuclear war rests in part on the 450 Minutem... more »

Others are more radical, such as trading large long-range missile defense interceptors for small point defense missiles and building a new generation of multi-role cruise missiles... more »

Saudi/Kuwait: No oil output reduction even if others cut

Penny at Penny for your thoughts - 1 day ago
Gulf Times The Saudi and Kuwaiti oil ministers said on Sunday that their countries would not cut oil production even if non-OPEC members reduce their output to shore up sagging oil prices. "No... I think it's too late now," Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi told reporters when asked whether OPEC would cut its output if non-OPEC producers were to lower their own. "If they (non-OPEC) want to cut production they are welcome. We are not going to cut, certainly Saudi Arabia is not going to cut," Naimi said on the sidelines of an energy conference in the United Arab Emirates. *Kuwaiti Oil ... more »

Happy Saturnalia! For a Return to the Golden Age and an End to the Theft of our Traditions

Rufus News From Atlantis at News From Atlantis. - 1 day ago
Today is the 21st December in the Gregorian Calendar. The fact that we now use the Gregorian Calendar and not the Julian one does have an impact upon this date and indeed every date which has a significance in pre-Gregorian times. Pope Gregory XIII changed the calendar in 1582 to correct discrepancies with the equinoxes which had been brought about by the imperfections of the Julian system (which itself was finalised in the AD 8). To make the calendar more accurate, the 4th October 1582 was followed by the 15th October. When the British Empire (including what is now the USA) ado... more »

Getting Radicalized

I write this entry still in the firm belief that "Islamicism" is not a genuine threat to the well-being of most Canadians, let alone to Canada's continued existence. It's far less of a problem than misogyny. I'll take it as a given that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau's murder of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and his attack on Parliament Hill with a hunting rifle, was the act of mentally-ill man who had been a heavy drug user and was not a "false flag" operation. In the same spirit, I'll accept that he really did convert to Islam and oppose US and Canadian foreign policy in the Middle East and sup... more »

This is true whether you accept love or not and whether you scoff at the idea of love or not. Oneness means Oneness. No one is left out of Oneness, or Oneness would not be.
