*December 24, 2016* (Tony Cartalucci - NEO) - Predictions aside, there are obvious trends, plots, and paradigm shifts that will continue onward into the new year, that geopolitical observers should be distinctively aware of. *1. The War in Syria is Not Over * The United States conspired as early as 2007 to overthrow the government of Syria through the use of armed militants - particularly those aligned to Al Qaeda and who enjoy state sponsorship from America's Persian Gulf allies.

Isaac Newton: Money Must Have Fixed Quantity of Precious Metal

Anoop Verma at For The New Intellectual - 4 hours ago
In Isabel Paterson’s classic book *The God Of The Machine*, there is an informative discussion on the nature of sound money in the chapter, “Why Real Money Is Indispensable.” Paterson says that the economists who advocate fiat money (paper currency not redeemable in gold) are below the mental level of savages. She shows that the economic prosperity of a nation directly linked to the soundness of its currency. When money gets debased, economic activity comes to a standstill.

Will The Democrats Give The GOP Any Payback For Merrick Garland? Meet Joe Donnelly

I’ve never been very enthusiastic about Obama’s final Supreme Court pick, Merrick Garland, but he was the president and he’s the one who gets to pick Supreme Court nominees, not me. And not the opposition party. But the opposition party figured out how to do it— and it looks like they’ll get away with it— basically because Chuck Schumer shoved unelectable Senate candidates down Democratic voters’ throats, particularly Patrick Murphy (FL), Katie McGinty (PA), Ted Strickland (OH), Patty Judge (IA) and Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ).

Progress towards next-generation solar cells

Scientists have identified an unexpected cause of poor performance in a new class of flexible and cheap solar cells, bringing them closer to market. Solar cells are the building blocks of photovoltaic solar panels. They are made from light-absorbing materials that convert sunlight into electricity. Normally the light-absorbing material is silicon, which has an energy-intensive manufacturing process. In the new study, scientists looked at solar cells made from materials known as perovskites. These can be produced cheaply from chemicals mixed into printable or sprayable ink, which the... more »

Imperial College of London makes world's most heat resistant material at 4232 kelvin

noreply@blogger.com (brian wang) at Next Big Future - 9 hours ago
Researchers have discovered that tantalum carbide and hafnium carbide materials can withstand scorching temperatures of nearly 4000 degrees Celsius. Being able to withstand temperatures of nearly 4000°C could pave the way for both materials to be used in ever more extreme environments, such as in heat resistant shielding for the next generation of hypersonic space vehicles. Tantalum carbide (TaC) and hafnium carbide (HfC) are refractory ceramics, meaning they are extraordinarily resistant to heat. Their ability to withstand extremely harsh environments means that refractory ceramic... more »

First true brain to brain communication could start in 2017 because of recent huge advances

noreply@blogger.com (brian wang) at Next Big Future - 10 hours ago
The first true brain-to-brain communication in people could start next year, thanks to huge recent advances. Early attempts won’t quite resemble telepathy as we often imagine it. Our brains work in unique ways, and the way each of us thinks about a concept is influenced by our experiences and memories. This results in different patterns of brain activity, but if neuroscientists can learn one individual’s patterns, they may be able to trigger certain thoughts in that person’s brain. In theory, they could then use someone else’s brain activity to trigger these thoughts. Researchers h... more »

The North Carolina GOP/KKK Never Got Over Obama's Win In 2008 In Their State

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 16 hours ago
North Carolina is pretty evenly divided between supporters of a progressive vision of governance and supporters of a conservative or reactionary vision. Trump won the state last month— 2,362,631 (49.8%) to 2,189,316 (46.2%). Hillary won all 7 of the state’s biggest counties— Wake, Mecklenburg, Guildford, Forsyth, Durham, Buncombe and Cumberland. Trump won all but one of the state’s 20 smallest, backward, rural counties. But on the same day Trump won, divisive Republican governor Pat McCrory was beaten by Democrat Roy Cooper 2,281,155 (49.0%) to 2,276,383 (48.9%). Democrat Josh St... more »

Organic Christmas Food Arrives for Standing Rock Water Protectors

White Wolf at White Wolf - 16 hours ago
*Winter Solstice at Standing Rock was warmed by the generous donation of hundreds of pounds of organic food for all the Water Protectors, delivered from Organic Valley, in La Farge, Wisconsin.* What began as a spirit camp of prayer in April 2016 with some 50 people, who opposed the Dakota Access pipeline coming onto ancestral Sioux territory, has turned into the largest gathering of American Indians in over a century. It is difficult to have an official count, but literally thousands of American Indians have come to Standing Rock during the past several months in the effort to sh... more »

*'Minneapolis School Embraces Family-Style Dining'* "What if school lunchtime was more than just a wait in line and a race to find a seat and eat, but instead was more like a traditional family meal – a time when friends gather to enjoy their food, engage in meaningful conversation, build relationships and gain important life skills?" That's the question posed by the principal of a Minneapolis public elementary school in a blog posted Tuesday on the Agriculture Department website. The principal explains that her school decided to abandon the typical chaotic and impersonal lunchro... more »

As many of us gather with family and share conversation, memories, good food and presents I hope that I, my handful of readers, and any others that have been taking notice can, however briefly, ignore the ever increasing turmoil across the world. More than 6 years ago I started this blog to speak out against what I saw as an increasingly authoritative and power hungry government lead by one Stephen Harper and was therefore greatly relieved when he was tossed from power last year. Whilst our new government is far from perfect let us not forget how close we came to loosing so many of ... more »

Celebrations: A Comparative Analysis

Never one to miss an opportunity to advance the frontiers of human knowledge, here's the break down of each of the two tins.

Mikhail Gorbachev’s Resignation Speech

Anoop Verma at For The New Intellectual - 20 hours ago
Twenty-five years ago, on December 26, 1991, Mikhail Gorbachev, the last President of the Soviet Union, resigned and declared his office extinct. Gorbachev was forced to resign because four days earlier 11 of the former Soviet republics had established the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), effectively throwing the Soviet Union into the garbage dump of history. In his resignation speech, Gorbachev accepts that in the Soviet Union people were doomed to cater to a totalitarian ideology. He says that the communist regime had caused unimaginable devastation, and he sees the rej... more »

Donald Trump vows to shut controversial Trump Foundation per BBC News

Not a sheep at Not a sheep - 20 hours ago
It's all about the narrative for the BBC. This report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38429496 is entitled: 'Donald Trump vows to shut controversial Trump Foundation' Oddly I can't remember the BBC ever describing the Clinton Foundation as controversial. But then the BBC supported Hillary Clinton and oppose Donald Trump, which is an odd fact about a supposedly impartial news reporting organisation.

Thoughts on Christmas

LL at Virtual Mirage - 21 hours ago
*Merry Christmas* There are so many voices out there that are arguing against today and I ask myself why anyone no matter who they are, could deny the need for hope, salvation, redemption, charity and joy. It's a time of expression of love, giving and a yearning for peace and good will. It's a celebration of that spark of divinity that exists in all of us and of our innate desire to make that spark grow. I read an article written by a Christian who expressed concern at cultural appropriation of Christmas. I have no idea which rock that person crawled out from under, but it's just p... more »

So is the threat from Tunisians? I thought it was from Muslim terrorists in general. Merry Christmas from the religion of peace?
