Moscow Is Ready for a Nuclear War (As in Lots of Bunkers for the Population)

Charlie Gao at Test Feed Using Fields - 12 hours ago
*Charlie Gao* *Security, Europe* In case World War III goes down. According to Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations, in the event of a nuclear attack on Moscow, there is space in underground facilities for all of the population. While this is a very bold claim, Moscow is famous for the massive amount of bunkers it has available for Civil Defense (гражданской обороны) and the military. The average Muscovite usually has an odd story or two about how bunkers have popped up in their daily life. But what types of bunkers are there? How protected are they? On the largest level, t... more »

Spain’s Billion-Dollar Ethanol-Powered S-80 Super-Submarines Are Too Big to Fit in their Docks

Sebastien Roblin at Test Feed Using Fields - 12 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, Europe* [image: Flickr / Navantia Official] And won’t start out with key air-independent propulsion technology. On July 18, the Spanish newspaper El País reported that Spain’s four advanced S-80 submarines under construction had proven too big to fit in their docks at Cartagena. The naval base, located on the Mediterranean Sea in southeastern Spain, has been the home of the Spain’s submarine fleet since 1918, but its docks measure three meters shorter than the boats they will need to accommodate. This is only a minor by-blow in a protracted a series... more »

Third Way And The Republican Wing Of The Democratic Party Gears Up For War-- Against Bernie

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 12 hours ago
A few days ago I went to a fundraiser for a congressional candidate here in L.A. One of the artists you see frequently here at *DWT*, Nancy Ohanian, donated a huge aluminum rendition of the Bernie Sanders characature you see above. It's spectacular and comes up to my chest. I offered to auction it with the proceeds going to the candidate, a super-duper progressive who, in fact, had endorsed Bernie in 2016. I got to the event early so I could set up. While the host was helping me find a suitable place to display the art, a craggy old man-- let's say 80, but I'm not certain-- ambled ... more »

Marine Litter: The Public Mistakenly Trusts Environmental Groups, And That Impedes Progress

News Staff at Science 2.0 - Earth Sciences - 13 hours ago
Across Europe, 95 percent of people claim to have seen seen litter when they visited the coast - yet they say they don't litter. And they don't trust scientists, corporations or government to solve it, which leaves environmentalists who don't ever actually send people into the wilderness to clean up litter. Marine litter is a big deal thanks to environmental publicity but it is highly exaggerated - think mercury in salmon, alar on apples, floating barges of garbage, estrogen in drinking water and more to get an idea of how these issues get magnified. read more

Madness in Moscow

Eric Margolis at - 13 hours ago
[image: undefined][image: undefined] Comedy? Disaster? Mental disorder? Hearing loss? Even days after President Donald Trump’s bizarre appearance in Moscow alongside a cool, composed President Vladimir Putin, it’s hard to tell what happened. But it certainly was entertaining. In case anyone in the universe missed this event, let me recap. Trump met in private with Putin, which drove bureaucrats on both sides crazy. So far, Trump won’t reveal most of what was said between the two leaders. But after the presidential meeting, Trump replied to reporters' questions by saying he believed... more »

Mass Dementia in the Western Establishment

Diana Johnstone at - 13 hours ago
[image: undefined] Where to begin to analyze the madness of mainstream media in reaction to the Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki? By focusing on the individual, psychology has neglected the problem of mass insanity, which has now overwhelmed the United States establishment, its mass media and most of its copycat European subsidiaries. The individuals may be sane, but as a herd they are ready to leap off the cliff. For the past two years, a particular power group has sought to explain away its loss of power – or rather, its loss of the Presidency, as it still holds a predominance of ... more »

Stoicism and David Hume

Anoop Verma at The Verma Report - 13 hours ago
David Hume, in a number of passages, suggests that stoic ideas are favorable for leading a virtuous life. In *An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding*, he says that a stoic (and epicurean) displays principles which are durable and have a beneficial impact on conduct and behavior. Here’s an excerpt: For here is the chief and most confounding objection to excessive scepticism, that no durable good can ever result from it; while it remains in its full force and vigour. We need only ask such a sceptic, *What his meaning is? And what he proposes by all these curious researches?* He is... more »

Science 2.0 Explains: How Water Exists In Two Different Forms At The Molecular Level

News Staff at Science 2.0 - Physical Sciences - 14 hours ago
Everyone knows that water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms - H20. But the story of water gets a lot more scientifically interesting the deeper you go. Water actually exists in two different forms, called isomers, at the molecular level. They have almost identical physical properties, you can't tell the difference, but chemists can tell them apart by the relative orientation of the nuclear spins of the two hydrogen atoms. They are called *ortho-* or *para-water* depending on whether the spins are aligned in the same or opposite direction... more »

Hepatitis B In Africa Might Be Solved With A $20 Test

News Staff at Science 2.0 blogs - 15 hours ago
Sub-Saharan Africa has around 80 million people infected with hepatitis B, a liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus, but it infects around 250 million people worldwide. It can be a mild illness lasting a few weeks or a serious, lifelong condition. It is transmitted through blood and bodily fluids. An accurate diagnostic score that consists of inexpensive blood tests costing around $20 could help diagnose thousands of patients with hepatitis B in need of treatment in some of Africa's poorest regions, far more affordable than the $100-500 for current tests. read more

Everybody Wants To Get To Heaven . . .

Owen Gray at Northern Reflections - 15 hours ago
Hugh MacKenzie writes that we should have had an adult conversation about taxes and public services long ago. But that conversation has never happened, despite the obvious connection between the two: Tax cuts reduce fiscal capacity, driving reductions in public services and that if you want better public services, you need to increase the government’s fiscal capacity to generate revenue. The alternative, from a 4-year-old’s perspective: if you go to the corner store with less money, you are going to come home with less candy. In Ontario, the Wynne government began such a conversa... more »

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
[image: Facebook icon] [image: LinkedIn icon] [image: Twitter icon] This is something that is not really understood at all. It is that it is impossible to properly lift interest rates as a tool of monetary policy. The global population has been paying themselves through asset appreciation driven by cheap money. It is not going to be possible to collateralize that debt in any form if rates rise even mildly. We really have to depend on slow capital repayment over decades from cash flow. This means that we now need an increasing wage packet and that is also dr... more »
