Mr. Barrow said he would try to convince Mr. Jammeh to carry out a smooth transfer of power “in the supreme interest of this country.”

PewDiePie Deletes Other Channel; Makes Point About Media



PewDiePie Deletes Other Channel; Makes Point About Media




To further drive his point home, the last frame of the above clip says that PewDiePie will now delete his main channel when he reaches 100 million subscribers, which will obviously not happen for quite some time to come. Presumably, the media at large won’t assume he’s being serious this time, although one never knows for sure.

With the glut of “fake news” currently littering the internet – stories that are provably untrue, but presented as if they’re legitimate reporting in order to get clicks – one wonders if how quickly the media fell for what was ultimately a combination of a joke and a publicity stunt by PewDiePie is a symptom of that larger problem. After all, if PewDiePie’s own subscribers didn’t take his “threat” seriously, then why did anyone else? Because they read about it in countless articles that presented the story that way. It’s certainly food for thought, if nothing else.

ApocryphaEdit

The (non-canonStar Trek III novelization further suggests that the planet and system may have been unstable due not only to the inclusion of protomatter in the matrix, but also to being formed entirely from the matter of the Mutara Nebula rather than having been detonated on a pre-existing world, as originally intended. The Genesis Wave series of novels (set in the 24th century and featuring the crew of the USS Enterprise-E) expand upon this premise, noting that the Genesis Cave continued to exist inside the Regula One planetoid (which contradicts the movie novel, which shows that the plants inside the cave had mutated into something completely different than what they had started out as), and features some insight as to what happened after the events of The Wrath of Khan, including the revelation that Carol Marcus survived into the twenty-fourth century, although kept in secret due to the danger of her knowledge of the Genesis Project.

The Curse of Cash (download torrent) - TPBThe Curse of Cash - Kenneth S. Rogoff [epub]

The world is drowning in cash - and it's making us poorer and less safe. In The Curse of Cash, Kenneth Rogoff, one of the world's leading economists, makes a persuasive and fascinating case for an idea that until recently would have seemed outlandish: getting rid of most paper money.

Even as people in advanced economies are using less paper money, there is more cash in circulation--a record $1.4 trillion in U.S. dollars alone, or $4,200 for every American, mostly in $100 bills. And the United States is hardly exceptional. So what is all that cash being used for? The answer is simple: a large part is feeding tax evasion, corruption, terrorism, the drug trade, human trafficking, and the rest of a massive global underground economy.

As Rogoff shows, paper money can also cripple monetary policy. In the aftermath of the recent financial crisis, central banks have been unable to stimulate growth and inflation by cutting interest rates significantly below zero for fear that it would drive investors to abandon treasury bills and stockpile cash. This constraint has paralyzed monetary policy in virtually every advanced economy, and is likely to be a recurring problem in the future.

The Curse of Cash offers a plan for phasing out most paper money - while leaving small-denomination bills and coins in circulation indefinitely - and addresses the issues the transition will pose, ranging from fears about privacy and price stability to the need to provide subsidized debit cards for the poor.

While phasing out the bulk of paper money will hardly solve the world's problems, it would be a significant step toward addressing a surprising number of very big ones. Provocative, engaging, and backed by compelling original arguments and evidence, The Curse of Cash is certain to spark widespread debate

IRS Data: American Dream Evaporates, Amid Mass Immigration, Automation - Breitbart

IRS Data: American Dream Evaporates, Amid Mass Immigration, Automation - Breitbart



Under President Barack Obama, the federal government annually imports at least one million legal immigrants, plus almost one million temporary white-collar guest workers and blue-collar guest workers for jobs sought by Americans. Those two million new foreign workers — plus the roughly eight million illegal immigrants in jobs — compete against the four million young Americans who begin looking for jobs each year.
That wage-cutting competition shifts roughly $500 billion per year from wages and salaries into company profits, boosting investors and Wall Street, but reducing productivity growth and creating a huge population of unemployed men and of government-dependent poor people in the United States.

Devonian - Wikipedia



The Devonian period experienced the first significant adaptive radiationof life on dry land. Free-sporing vascular plants began to spread across dry land, forming extensive forests which covered the continents. By the middle of the Devonian, several groups of plants had evolved leaves and true roots, and by the end of the period the first seed-bearing plants appeared. Various terrestrial arthropods also became well-established.

Maggots Found in Veteran's Wound at Oklahoma VA After Family Begged Staff to Treat Bandages - Cortney O'Brien

Maggots Found in Veteran's Wound at Oklahoma VA After Family Begged Staff to Treat Bandages - Cortney O'Brien







A few days after we learned that a dentist infected hundreds of patients with HIV at the VA facility in Tomah, Wisconsin, we have a disturbing report that maggots were found in a veteran's wound in a separate VA clinic in Oklahoma.
A 73-year-old veteran named Owen Reese Peterson came to the Talihina Veterans Center with a case of sepsis this fall. On October 13, an incident report was filed indicating maggots had been found in one of his wounds. Executive Director Myles Deering acknowledged the incident but said it was the sepsis, not the maggots, that killed him. 
If you ask Peterson's family, they'll tell you that Deering's explanation does little to erase the shocking discovery, nor the fact the clinic ignored their entreaties. The victim's surviving son, Raymie Parker, said he had repeatedly asked the VA staff to tend to his father's bandages, often to no avail.
“During the 21 days I was there, ... I pled with the medical staff, the senior medical staff, to increase his meds so his bandages could be changed,” Parker said. “I was met with a stonewall for much of that time.”
Three nurses and a physician's assistant have resigned after the incident before they had a chance to be fired. Just like in Tomah, where the dentist who infected patients with HIV was simply demoted to a desk job, no punishments have been enforced at Talihina for the gross negligence of our nation's heroes.
Pete Hegseth, who is rumored to be a candidate for Donald Trump's VA secretary, said on Fox News on Monday that he has "hope" that the VA can turn around because the president-elect has veterans a priority from "day one of his campaign."
The Concerned Veterans for America released the following statement in response to the Talihina shock.
“It is heartbreaking that the VA is treating sick and injured veterans in this degrading and negligent manner. Veterans made the ultimate sacrifice to defend us, and when they get home they deserve the absolute best care. We should never open the news to find headlines of maggots in the wounds of American heroes."

Rejoice, Because Soon You'll Only Have to Charge Your Phone Every 3 Months - MaximAccording to a super-sciency paper penned by Cornell researchers, they've figured out a way to engineer a "magnetoelectric multiferroic" material (that's as geeky as we're gonna get) that essentially allows devices like smartphones to literally operate 100 times more efficiently. Thus you'd need to recharge your device way less frequently.

Former Biosphere 2 CEO makes new name as Palin filmmaker - Inside Tucson Business: Media Watch



So, how did a guy who engineered the turn-around of Biosphere 2 and had established a career as an investment banker get into the movie-making business?
The former Naval officer and former vice president of Goldman Sachs launched his own company, Bannon & Co.. as an investment banking boutique firm specializing in intellectual property. It was that company that was hired in April 1994 by Edward Bass, founder of Biosphere 2, to take over its troubled operations. Two years later, the experimental environment site was sold to Columbia University.

Evolution: New category.

We're always trying to foresee the future a bit here at TPB. One of the things that we really know is that we as a society will always share. Digital communication has made that a lot easier and will continue to do so. And after the internets evolutionized data to go from analog to digital, it's time for the next step.
Today most data is born digitally. It's not about the transition from analog to digital anymore. We don't talk about how to rip anything without losing quality since we make perfect 1 to 1 digital copies of things. Music, movies, books, all come from the digital sphere. But we're physical people and we need objects to touch sometimes as well!
We believe that the next step in copying will be made from digital form into physical form. It will be physical objects. Or as we decided to call them: Physibles. Data objects that are able (and feasible) to become physical. We believe that things like three dimensional printersscanners and such are just the first step. We believe that in the nearby future you will print your spare sparts for your vehicles. You will download your sneakers within 20 years.
The benefit to society is huge. No more shipping huge amount of products around the world. No more shipping the broken products back. No more child labour. We'll be able to print food for hungry people. We'll be able to share not only a recipe, but the full meal. We'll be able to actually copy that floppy, if we needed one.
We believe that the future of sharing is about physible data. We're thinking of temporarily renaming ourselves to The Product Bay - but we had no graphical artist around to make a logo. In the future, we'll download one.
