Huawei founder: 'There's no way the US can crush us'

Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei told the BBC that he believes the arrest of his daughter, company CFO Meng Wanzhou, was politically motivated. Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in December over accusations that the company is involved in "conspiracy to defraud multiple financial institutions."

A new study on different kinds of loneliness suggests that having poor quality relationships is associated with greater distress than having too few, based on 1,839 US adults. In other words, it’s the quality, not quantity, of your relationships that real

Loneliness not only feels bad, experts have characterised it as a disease that increases the risk of a range of physical and psychological disorders. Some national prevalence estimates for loneliness are alarming. Although they can be as low as 4.4 per cent (in Azerbaijan), in other countries (such as Denmark) as many as 20 per cent of adults report being either moderately or severely lonely.

James Watt May Not Be The Best Known Inventor, But Without Him, The Modern World May Not Exist

He’s not often credited as the father of the Industrial Revolution, but without Scottish engineer James Watt, the Revolution may not have been possible. His very name was honored as the unit for which we measure the strength of power worldwide: the watt. His contribution to science, most notably the Watt steam engine, brought the world from an agriculture-based society to one centered around technology and invention. Indeed, in many ways, James Watt is the creator of the modern world of manufacturing.

MSU Student Urging Conservatives To Run For Student Government Gets Targeted For Using Student Government Logo

The controversy started after Sergei Kelley attempted to get more conservative students to run for ASMSU by reaching out to students on conservative email lists, asking them to fill out a survey about running for student government. When Kelley followed up with the students over email, his email signature included the student government logo, which some members of the student government have deemed inappropriate as attempting to represent the student government.

What Good has Bitcoin Done for the World?

By Stefan Kløvning

I used to be relatively passive to Bitcoin and crypto-currencies in general. I was long persuaded by Peter Schiff’s argument that Bitcoin was a bubble that would “have a very short life” due to its lack of intrinsic value and speculative nature, and that it therefore does not fulfill Aristotle’s five criteria for good money. As it was a rather new technology, I wasn’t the only skeptic. In the forefront among the crypto-currencies, it thus shocked the world when it hit $20,000 in value in the year-change of ’17/18. What in the world could make it so expensive and popular?...

Apple's priorities are shifting as iPhone sales continue to sink

As iPhone sales continue to sink, Apple has made several key moves over the last year as it prepares new offerings to juice growth elsewhere in the business.

If you've been listening to CEO Tim Cook's comments on earnings calls and in interviews recently, none of this should come as a surprise. The company has stopped reporting iPhone unit sales figures, and instead talks more about its growing base of active devices, which the company says can be used to squeeze out more revenue through its digital services like Apple Music, App Store sales and extra iCloud storage.

But it's not just about those subscription services. Apple has made several shifts in recent months that signal its preparing to move beyond the iPhone in other ways, such as artificial intelligence, the growing smart home market and digital health monitoring.

You may soon have to give your DNA to the state and pay $250 for the privilege

Arizona could soon be one of the first states to maintain a massive statewide DNA database.

And if the proposed legislation passes, many people — from parent school volunteers and teachers to real estate agents and foster parents — will have no choice but to give up their DNA.

Under Senate Bill 1475, which Rep. David Livingston, R-Peoria, introduced, DNA must be collected from anyone who has to be fingerprinted by the state for a job, to volunteer in certain positions or for a myriad of other reasons.

The bill would even authorize the medical examiner's office in each county to take DNA from any bodies that come into their possession.

Families of five American oil executives held in Venezuela for 15 months say they are being held in 'deplorable conditions' and there appears no end in sight to their nightmare as Maduro tightens his grip

Families of five American oil executives being held as part of the 'Citgo Six' say their relatives are living in overcrowded and inhumane Venezuelan jails.

Five American men, from Louisiana and Texas, have been sleeping in cramped cells and been starved since their arrest in Caracas in November 2017, their relatives claim.

The oil company they worked for is in the grip of a power struggle between Maduro and his rival for the presidency, the US-backed Juan Guaido.

A recent picture of one of the executives Tomeu Vadell, whose family live in Texas, shows dramatic weight loss and he appears extremely malnourished.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but IF legitimate, these held executives are a cause for concern; But the question here is, why has the US government not been in doing good faith negotiations to get them out?!? What will it take?!?

However, looking at the language here, excuse me, but this has "Wag the Dog" written all over it. (and if you have never seen it, do yourself a favor and buy it; this is PRECISELY how things get done in DC.)

'Irritated' US admiral sends destroyer to Black Sea after Russia fires on Ukrainian vessels

An American destroyer is sailing to the Black Sea to conduct naval exercises with Ukraine to demonstrate “solidarity” in response to a clash with Russia that has a top U.S. admiral furious.

“The whole episode in the Sea of Azov was extremely bothersome to me,” Admiral James Foggo, commander of U.S. naval forces in Europe and Africa, told reporters on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference over the weekend.

Russian forces fired on three Ukrainian naval vessels that attempted to pass through the Kerch Strait, the narrow waterway that connects the Black Sea to the Sea of Azov, and arrested the sailors in late November. The maritime incident was the first public act of violence by Russian forces against Ukraine since 2014, when unmarked Russian fighters helped annex Crimea and invade eastern Ukraine. Since the takeover, Moscow has used control of the land on both sides of the waterway to restrict access to key Ukrainian ports in the Sea of Azov.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Admiral Foggo, and President Trump, a few words, please.

In 2014, there was a coup in Ukraine, sponsored by the US, NATO and the IMF, to oust the duly elected Yanukovich, and replace him, in an election more crooked than is a dog's hind leg, with Poroshenko.

President Obama himself confessed in a CNN interview, that he had been part of the group to have created "regime change" in Ukraine. Washington was behind Ukraine coup; Obama admits that the US brokered a deal in support of regime change.

Gentlemen, this next bit is very important: When the Ukrainian Putsch happened, the people of Crimea understood that there was no legitimate government in Kiev. So what the Crimean people did was a two step process.

In a free and fair referendum, the Crimean people were asked, post-putsch, if they wanted to stay as part of Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to join it. Overwhelmingly, the Crimean people requested to leave Ukraine, and to petition the Russian Federation to become a part of it, which happened. the A-word, as in "annexed" by Russia never, ever happened, period, end of discussion.

Now, let's fast forward to last Fall.

The Ukrainian seamen knew what the protocol was, to access the Sea of Azov, and that had everything to do with communication, and allowing the Russian sea patrollers to know in advance when another ship was coming in; they didn't follow the protocol, so got popped by Russian Navy.

I would like to hope (and pray) that your orders are not to create a confrontation.

I have a companion piece on this: Russia Shadows USS Donald Cook as it Heads to Black Sea Now why would the US Navy send the USS Donald Cook to the Black Sea, when we know that the following happened the last time it was there? Why did the US Pull back the USS Donald Cook from the Black Sea? Here's what the article said:

"US destroyer “Donald Cook” with cruise missiles “Tomahawk” entered the neutral waters of the Black Sea on April 10, 2014. The purpose was a demonstration of force and intimidation in connection with the position of Russia in Ukraine and Crimea. The appearance of American warships in these waters is in contradiction of the Montreux Convention about the nature and duration of stay in the Black Sea by the military ships of countries not washed by this sea.

In response, Russia sent an unarmed bomber Su- 24 to fly around the U.S. destroyer. However, experts say that this plane was equipped with the latest Russian electronic warfare complex. According to this version, “Aegis” spotted from afar the approaching aircraft, and sounded alarm. Everything went normally, American radars calculated the speed of the approaching target. And suddenly all the screens went blank. “Aegis” was not working any more, and the rockets could not get target information. Meanwhile, Su-24 flew over the deck of the destroyer, did battle turn and simulated missile attack on the target. Then it turned and repeated the maneuver. And did so 12 times.

The demonstration was original enough. A bomber without any weapons, but having on board equipment for jamming enemy radar, worked against a destroyer equipped with “Aegis”, the most modern system of air and missile defence."

So, Admiral, has the USS Donald Cook actually had its equipment repaired to the point where it can no longer have its radar utterly destroyed by Russian equipment?!? Did you look the leadership of this crew in the eye, before they deployed, and tell them that the ship is truly, utterly seaworthy?

And Admiral, one last question: has the President decided to make it, and its crew, the "Sacrificial Lambs" with which to start a war with Russia, because the flaw in their radar has not been fixed?!?

Please, Lord, sir, tell me no!!!!!

Harvard Immunologist to Legislators: Unvaccinated Children Pose ZERO Risk to Anyone

It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide.

You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines – and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children – is not consistent with such a statement.

I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases.

Food Prices Will Rise In 2019 Adversely Impacting Those Living Paycheck To Paycheck

Almost 80% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck barely able to afford to put food on the table. That’s terrible news considering the predictions currently assume that grocery prices will steadily continue to rise during 2019.

Grocery prices are expected to rise by 1 percent or 2 percent this year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. It may seem small, but with so many U.S. households already living paycheck to paycheck, it could be just enough to have a real financial impact. Although food prices rose by just a fraction of a percent last year, and that was the first increase in three years, and it looks like prices will rise consistently during 2019, according to WCVB 5, an ABC News affiliate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I had a little bit of shopping to do yesterday, and we were more than a little "sticker shocked" by what the shopping wound up costing.

At least, in this little household of two (Thank Heaven!) I do know how to slow cook, which gives you the option of getting originally tougher cuts of meat very tender.

Judge may jail Roger Stone after Instagram post

A judge may send Roger Stone to jail after Stone posted a photo of the judge on Instagram Monday afternoon with crosshairs in the background next to her head.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over Stone's prosecution in D.C. federal court, scheduled a new hearing Thursday to discuss "why the media contact order entered in this case and/or his conditions of release should not be modified or revoked in light of the posts on his Instagram account." The judge's options include revoking his bail.

Jackson ordered a gag order last week to prevent Stone from speaking to the press about the case. Stone has been out on bail since he was arrested by the FBI in January. He faces seven charges in the Mueller probe, including five counts of lying and one count each of obstruction and witness tampering.

Venezuela Under Washington’s Gun

A full court press is taking place in Florida today (Presidents Day) with Republicans, Democrats, expatriates from Cuba and Venezuela and the warmonger ministry of propaganda that constitutes the US media all denouncing Maduro and blaming him for the hardships imposed on Venezuelans by Washington’s sanctions and attacks on Venezuela’s currency.

Even “liberal” NPR is reading off the same fascist warmonger script. NPR managed to report on Venezuela without mentioning the sanctions, without mentioning the theft of Venezuela’s gold foolishly entrusted to the US and British central banks, or the orchestrated protests funded by US-financed NGOs that are small in comparison with the crowds that support Maduro that are never mentioned in the US media. In other words, NPR is just another part of the whorehouse brigade.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a typically blunt, but completely honest assessment of what is going on in Venezuela, courtesy of Dr. Paul Craig Roberts.

And as someone who deeply appreciates what this man has to say, I would tell him, that the truth of situations is still out there, as evidenced by the continued existence of sites like global research and wrh; people just have to look a little further afield than the local telly, as the writing, producing, and reading of this codswallop is all engineered to get an emotional response from the reader, in order to further the US government's agenda.

Businesses in the Middle East have begun to think ‘Make trade not war’ and being part of China’s Belt and Road scheme

Singapore, aiming high for the status of Asia’s unofficial capital, seems like the ideal venue for a conference to discuss how the Middle East could learn a few lessons from ASEAN’s multi-layered relations with China, especially involving partnership in the New Silk Roads, or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

But first, let’s get things straight. The “Middle East” is, of course, a Eurocentric, Orientalist denomination. From Asia’s – and China’s – cultural and geographical point of view, the “Middle East” is correctly seen as Southwest Asia.

It’s enlightening to evaluate two Chinese informed perspectives on how China is deploying its geopolitical soft power across Southwest Asia in contrast to the Trump administration’s immensely muddled strategy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a great place for the world to start; and I wholeheartedly agree with the concept of trade trumps war ANY day, in my book
