CLIMATE CHANGE SHOCK: Global warming happened LONG before man started burning fossil fuels

THE debate over man-made climate change has been turned upside down following the discovery there was a catastrophic Antarctic sea ice shrinkage more than 100,000 years ago... when mankind was still in loin cloths.

The newly discovered naturally-caused warm spell 115,00 to 130,000 years ago has given support to the claim global warming can happen without man's interference, according to sceptics of human-caused climate change.

However, those campaigning for more to be done to limit carbon emissions to prevent future global warming are also using the new research in support of their case.

Winter sea ice around Antarctica shrank 65 per cent in a natural warm period between Ice Ages about 128,000 years ago, when temperatures were slightly warmer than now, according to the new report in the journal Nature Communications.

‘Something is VERY broken’ Deutsche Bank at DANGER level that could SMASH markets

GERMANY'S biggest bank is in more trouble than people even think and could drag down some of Europe's biggest lenders to trigger a market meltdown, according to a hedge fund manager who is betting against the firm.

Deutsche Bank is dangerously underfunded, highly indebted, and people are oblivious, according to Brad Lamensdorf who runs the Ranger Equity Bear ETF.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the US-based investor and trading strategist warned: "Deutsche is in more trouble than people realise."

The bank's share price is now trading at lower levels than it was at the height of the financial crisis in 2008.

Mr Lamensdorf added: "It suggests something is very very broken."

Election Meddling: Bad If Done To USA, Bad To Complain About If Done By USA

The Washington Post (8/10/16) published what has to be one of the most naked examples of projection ever displayed by a major American paper. The Post’s editorial board, in another effort to bash Russia, lumped its President Vladimir Putin and Turkey’s increasingly autocratic ruler President Recep Tayyip Erdogan into a generic “strongman” category, and warned of their paranoia:

Cortana: The spy in Windows 10

Microsoft also claims that Windows 10 SP1 is safer than ever, which I find even less assuring than the promise not to exploit all that Cortana data. Think about this: You can use Cortana from the lock screen. That’s right; Cortana is active and listening to when your PC is locked. Well, it’s supposed to be locked, but if it’s able to listen, how locked down is it, really? Not very!

Microsoft calls this a feature that gives you the ability to ask your PC simple questions without logging in. But I call anything that lets me input data into a PC without being logged into it a bug. It’s a security hole begging to be exploited. Windows, which God knows has had more than enough security problems, now has a new attack surface.

Fortunately, you can fix this one easily. Just open Cortana’s Settings and turn off the “Use Cortana even when my device is locked.”

Burning Down the House

There’s a new feature to the Anything-Goes-and-Nothing-Matters economy: Nothing-Adds-Up. The magicians who pretend to measure the growth of GDP (Gross Domestic Product — the monetary value of all the finished goods and services) came up with a second quarter “adjusted” figure of 1.2 percent. That would have to be construed by anyone acquainted with basic econ stats as perfectly dismal. And yet the Bureau of Labor Statistics put out a sparkly Nonfarm Payroll Report of 255,000 for July, way above the forecast 180,000.

There were so many ways to game the jobs number — between people forced to work more than one shit job and the notorious “birth/death model” used to just make up any old number for political purposes — that no one can take this information seriously. Anyway, the GDP number was instantly forgotten and the jobs number launched the stock markets to previously uncharted record altitude.

America’s Aristocracy Facing Resistance From American Public Regarding Russia

The subterranean reality of U.S. foreign policy is that it serves the U.S. aristocracy, the owners of controlling blocs of stock in America’s international corporations, which include especially Big Oil, Big Armaments, Big Ag, and Big Banks. The United States’ vast military-industrial complex uses the NATO anti-Russian military alliance as its major international marketing arm, and relies heavily on the Sunni Arabic — or “Gulf States” — the U.S.-affiliated oil-monarchies, as their major customers.

Election Meddling: Bad if Done to USA, Bad to Complain About if Done by USA

The US government doesn’t occasionally meddle in the domestic affairs of other countries or try to overthrow their governments—it does so as a matter of course. It’s in its DNA, its animating ethos.

To omit the endless string of examples of US interfering in other countries in an editorial about fears of US interfering in other countries is at best negligent and at worst deliberately obtuse. It’s hard to describe foreign leaders as being paranoid about US meddling and coups if you acknowledge that the US has been involved in meddling and coups for more than a century.

Two university students take just 54 hours to build a Census website that WORKS - for $10 MILLION less than the ABS' disastrous site

Two first year university students have designed an alternative to the ABS Census website in just 54 hours.

Austin Wilshire, 18, and Bernd Harzer, 24, created the site during the Queensland University of Technology's Code Network Winter hack-a-thon at the weekend.

The pair took a little over two days to make the site, and it cost them less than $500 - far less than the $10 million the Australian government spent on their site.

The ABS' Census site crashed for over 24 hours on the night the servers were overloaded when millions of Australians logged on to fill out the survey - taken every five years.

Their project - titled 'Make Census Great Again' - used 'serverless architecture' by hosting their site on Amazon servers - meaning it could not get overloaded.

Billionaire Soros doubles bet against US stocks

The 86-year-old investor's fund has reported it had arranged ‘put’ options on roughly 4 million shares as of June 30. This is up from 2.1 million shares as of March 31.

A put option gives investor the right, not an obligation, to sell these shares in the future. This means Soros will earn, if the S&P 500 index goes down. The fund didn’t specify the price or expiration of these positions.

Former president Jimmy Carter said Tuesday on the nationally syndicated radio show the Thom Hartmann Program that the United States is now an “oligarchy” in which “unlimited political bribery” has created “a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors.” Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, “look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves.”
