There is No Lone Wolf Terrorism: but there is anxiety about brown men, loneliness, and mental illness

Megan MacKenzie at Duck of Minerva - 2 hours ago
There’s something about ‘lone wolf terrorism’ debates that stinks. I can’t quite find a singular source of the smell, but after further investigation, it seems the relatively recent surge in the use of the category ‘lone wolf’ to describe individual acts of political violence draws on extremely rank racist, sexist, and alarmist logic.

Compassion is the ability to see the deep connectedness between ourselves and others. Moreover, true compassion recognizes that all the boundaries we perceive between ourselves and others are an illusion.

Mouvement laïque québécois *v.*Saguenay (City), 2015 SCC 16 The state's duty of religious neutrality results from an evolving interpretation of freedom of conscience and religion. The evolution of Canadian society has given rise to a concept of this neutrality according to which the state must not interfere in religion and beliefs. The state must instead remain neutral in this regard, which means that it must neither favour nor hinder any particular belief, and the same holds true for non‑belief.

More intervention not the solution to housing crisis

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 6 hours ago
*Guest post by Stephen Berry* A thinly-veiled call by the Reserve Bank to examine the tax status of property investors is not the solution to fixing the crisis of housing hyperinflation. What is making housing unaffordable for increasing numbers of Aucklanders is precisely the intervention by government, councils and the Reserve Bank itself.” Auckland Council is one of the main contributors to the unaffordability crisis affecting the property market. The refusal of the Council to abolish the Metropolitan Urban Limit – the planner-imposed ring-fence around the city—means that in... more »

In many areas of the country, teachers are disappearing at an alarming rate. Demoralized, terrorized, berated, hounded, bullied, and just fed up, teachers are increasingly leaving--and sharing their horror stories as they exit the classroom. Their stories, too, are finding their way through blogs, social media, and into the mainstream, and as a result university teacher education enrollment has plummeted. Without any protection from either of the teacher unions, corporate education reformers have remained free to bombard the teaching profession without fear of anti-aircraft fire ... more »

*Off-topic: My Facebook friend Vít Jedlička (SSO, Party of Free Citizens) established a new libertarian country, Liberland (To Live And Let Live), where the government doesn't get on your nerves. Before he elected himself the president, he had to carefully choose a territory where no one will bother him, where no one would ever start a war; he picked seven squared kilometers in between Serbia and Croatia because these two nations wouldn't dare to damage one another. ;-) There's a catch for new citizens, however: the official language is Czech.* Lots of mainstream writers including... more »

Ko Savonije at Naval Open Source INTelligence - 18 hours ago
[image: Tomahawk cruise missile]Using company-funded independent research and development investment, Raytheon Company is preparing for a multi-mode seeker test designed for a Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile. The captive flight test, using a modified Tomahawk Block IV missile nose cone, will be designed to demonstrate the processor's ability to broadcast active radar as well as passively receive target electromagnetic radiation, which was demonstrated in February 2014. This is a critical step in enabling the missile to strike moving targets on land and at sea. Read more

It said that Beijing believes that its conventional missile deterrent against Taiwan is being undermined by US ballistic missile defense assets. At the same time, Chinese officials and academics see Washington’s ballistic missile defense deployments as a threat and a danger to strategic stability, the report said. Read more

*April 12, 2015* (Ulson Gunnar - NEO) - The information war can be quickly lost if one cannot get their assets onto the "battlefield." For the US, UK or Europe, the constant din of their propaganda spread across the planet via their impressive and immense media networks has recently run into a few snags. In nations like Russia, China or Iran, ruling governments and local industry have begun creating their own Internets, their own alternatives to US-controlled social media platforms and search engines, and in some cases, even their own hardware to run it all on. They have also take... more »

Max Born's Nobel lecture

I decided to read Max Born's 1954 Physics Nobel Prize lecture, The statistical interpretation of quantum mechanics (PDF), in some detail. Even though it was written and spoken more than 60 years ago, it makes such a perfect sense. Unsurprisingly, the lecture is a combination of physics and history. Let's look at those 12 pages. We like to think about the Copenhagen school. Born makes it clear that Niels Bohr was a guru in his eyes. But he also prefers to talk about three schools, the Copenhagen school; the Göttingen school; and the Cambridge school. He was the boss of the Götting... more »

Arab Leaders Agree To Form A Joint Military Force!

I think that this can come together far faster than anyone really imagines. It is totally in the best interests of all the military forces to do exactly this and engagement means training for their best troops as well. After this it will be a matter for the various stakeholders to get together and knock together a simple protocol. We forget just how fast militaries can organize alliances. Better most are trained in European traditions so the process is almost seamless. The hard reality is that the Iranian threat has not abated and it has become real in every new hot spot..... more »

That is obviously needed Then women sign in to their local branch and establish availability. Employers merely go to that site and recruit as needed. The union handles critical details usually in the hands of the employer. Better yet it provides an eyeball that can challenge abuse. Thi... more »

The Incredible True Story Behind the Toronto Mystery Tunnel

This is an amusing story. It reminds us of the human need for refuge where you can retreat to the world of your own thoughts.

Thus digging a hidey hole is a plausible option when you are twenty some and work all day on construction anyway. There are obviously far easier ways to create an refuge than this though.

It is fairly simple really. There are those who accept that GOD exists and are comfortable with all that. Then we have those attempting to reject that. Everything else on the subject is usually an exercise in human manipulation. What we do know and can now show experimentally is that Dark Matter physically exists and separately that the spirit formed from Dark Matter operates our physical existence as biological entities. Then extrapolating from natural logic we can go a huge step further and observe that the Soul is the perfect pattern of our spirit body and by exten... more »
