Venezuela is in dire condition

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 23:56:49 +0000

Forget for a moment how the ongoing economic collapse in Venezuela was triggered. Instead, realize that millions there live in increasing desperate economic conditions. The country has two big problems – the price of oil and a drought  – and had no backup plan for when the price of oil fell and drought cuts electricity […]

Trump bans all foreign takeovers of big US tech companies

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 15:18:15 +0000

Trump issued an executive order yesterday explicitly stopping Broadcom, which is based in Singapore, from buying Qualcomm, in what would have been the biggest tech takeover ever, valued at $117 billion. The primary reason was that CFIUS, a Treasury Department committee that reviews such sales, said it would be deleterious to the US if China […]

Social media feels like a war zone now, says John Robb

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 18:06:08 +0000

Futurist, blogger, security analyst John Robb says “On social networks. If you’re online, a lot of the time you can feel you’re in a war zone.” Indeed, it feels like a war zone because it often is a war zone. Especially Twitter. Combatants can get doxxed, swatted, harassed, have their children threatened, and some leave […]

Silicon Valley wants 24/7 surveillance, as do governments. How convenient

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 17:06:52 +0000

Maybe it’s not so strange that a technology, the internet, that was started as a way to watch the public, continues to do exactly that, often with governments concealed behind the curtains as we get distracted by all the shiny new online toys. There is, of course, no going back. And the internet absolutely does […]

GE plans to ship their behemoth Haliade-X wind turbine in 2021. It will be the biggest, most powerful wind turbine ever. How big? It’s 853 ft. tall. The blades are 351 ft., longer than a football field. Blade diameter is 722 ft. Output is an astonishing 12 MW. That’s enough to power upwards of 16,000 […]

The Death of Expertise, by Tom Nichols

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 16:55:56 +0000

Experts on a subject can and do make mistakes. However, they are far more right about their field of expertise than laymen. One would think this would be obvious. But it’s not. Someone who has spent decades studying their field gets challenged by a yahoo on Twitter who spent five minutes googling the subject. Given […]

The superseding indictment: Manafort and Gates are now road kill

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 00:01:43 +0000

Why did Ukraine pay Manafort and Gates so much – $75 million in total – and what did they do to earn the money. Where did the money come from, what banks were involved in laundering it, and who were the final recipients of the money? The superseding indictment today against Manafort and Gates has […]

Bernie Sanders seems evasive about Russia bots, influence

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 19:05:02 +0000

Sanders didn’t know early on that Russian bots were promoting his campaign? How very strange. Plenty of us Never Trumpers on Twitter did. And then he did nothing once he knew, apparently? (Except to blame Hillary???) Bernie’s comments are evasive. Nothing is ever his fault apparently. And why oh why was Tad Devine the chief […]

Excerpts from the indictment of the Russians

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 18:14:22 +0000

Given the size and sophistication of Russian interference in the election, it is not credible that at least some members of presidential campaigns did not know they were dealing with foreign entities, and that is illegal. My comments are prefaced with an * and are in italics. These quotes are from the indictment. Page 2. […]
