News : Is The Universe A Hologram?

Is The Universe A Hologram?

A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection.

In 1997, theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed that an audacious model of the Universe in which gravity arises from infinitesimally thin, vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physics. The mathematically intricate world of strings, which exist in nine dimensions of space plus one of time, would be merely a hologram: the real action would play out in a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.

A drive to recognize good deeds is blossoming in northeast London.

By the end of its Can U Feel It? campaign, 18,000 people will be honored by members of the community for their good deeds.

“It’s quite amazing, actually, how this has taken off,” said Arden McClean, the program manager at Family Centre Carling-Thames.

News : Snowden link to encrypted email service closes
Posted by Merin_Kyo_Den on 2013/8/9 10:33:57 (1688 reads)

Spying on allies

Two encrypted email services have closed down for reasons linked to US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden.

Texas-based Lavabit service has shut down but said legal reasons prevented it explaining why.

Correspondents say Lavabit appears to have been in a legal battle to stop US officials accessing customer details.

In addition, secure communications firm Silent Circle has shut its email service because messages cannot be kept wholly secret.

Web watchers

Mr Snowden, a former contractor to the American National Security Agency (NSA), has admitted leaking information about widespread US surveillance on electronic communications to the media.

He fled the US - where he now faces espionage charges - and has been granted temporary asylum in Russia.

Lavabit came under scrutiny following reports that Mr Snowden was using the service while holed-up in Moscow airport.

"I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people, or walk away from nearly 10 years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit," Mr Levison wrote in a letter posted on the Lavabit website.

He said he had decided to "suspend operations" but was barred from discussing the events over the past six weeks that led to his decision.

"This experience has taught me one very important lesson: without congressional action or a strong judicial precedent, I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States," he wrote.

Silent Circle said it shut down its email service for both technical and political reasons.

Protests have followed revelations about the scale of NSA surveillance
"Email as we know it... cannot be secure," wrote Jon Callas, co-founder and head of technology officer at Silent Circle, in a blogpost. "Email that uses standard Internet protocols cannot have the same security guarantees that real-time communications has."

By contrast, he said, the firm was keeping its secure voice and text services going because it had control over the infrastructure supporting them and could guarantee that messages were not intercepted or tampered with en route.

In addition, said Mr Callas, it was anticipation of future government calls to hand over customer details that prompted the Silent Mail shutdown.

"We see the writing (on) the wall, and we have decided that it is best for us to shut down Silent Mail now," he said. "We have not received subpoenas, warrants, security letters, or anything else by any government, and this is why we are acting now.

"We wanted to be proactive because we knew USG would come after us," Silent Circle boss Michael Janke told the TechCrunch website in an interview.

The US Department of Justice has so far not commented on the Lavabit closure.

Jennifer Granick, director of civil liberties at the Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society, said America's widespread surveillance could have far-reaching consequences for its technology industry.

"...the US government, in its rush to spy on everybody, may end up killing our most productive industry," she wrote in a blogpost. "Lavabit may just be the canary in the coal mine."

News : Prince Charles of England is descended from Dracula
Posted by admin on 2011/10/28 19:30:00 (3863 reads)

Did you know that Prince Charles, son of the Queen of England, is a descendant of Dracula?

Seems that royalty in England comes with a legacy of the night. Prince Charles by his own words acknowledges the fact that he is descended by blood and in the family of the Vampire Vlad the Impaler.

This is not a Halloween hoax, read these articles by credible news organizations:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/art ... earning-Transylvania.html

http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/s ... harles-dracula/50952420/1

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines ... s-hes-related-to-dracula/

Now that we know the facts about the lineage of the tyranny that we as a country fled it's time to look at our own blood sucking legislators.

Prince Charles may have a proven lineage going back to one of the most vile and despicable figures in history. By their own voting records and failure to act there is a vile and despicable nature to all the members of our House of Representatives and Senators. For years they've done nothing, literally nothing, to address the needs of their constituents while granting themselves pay increases. The lawmakers in this country have the health care program in place for themselves and their families while denying the tax paying citizens equal care.

In 2012 congress will be in session less than 1/3rd of the calendar year.

If you were only required to show up for work about 4 months out of a year would you at least do a good job? What is it that our elected officials are doing? Are the people we voted into office spending their 3 month out of a year job doing anything that is benefiting any of us?

Our political system is filled not with a difference of ideas but with hatred. Once there was a pendulum that swung from right to left and back again as a metaphor on politics. Right now the pendulum is stuck. It's not moved by the conservatives, it's not moved by the liberals, it's not moving at all. The political atmosphere at this time is one of hatred and distrust. America doesn't need terrorists from abroad to bring our way of life to it's knees. The greed of American Corporations with so much emphasis on meeting or beating next quarters profits has already reformed long standing institutions of the American economy into slave traders that seek to divest themselves of the very thing that made them strong. American corporations don't want employees anymore. Employees cost money and that's an expense to publicly traded corporations.

What happens when General Motors announces a lay off? The price of their stock goes up!

The future is bleak for anyone that works with their hands or has a skill. The future is great for the lawyers and investment bankers and lenders.

Capitalism in America comes down to this: Make as much money as fast as you can.

Nowhere in the capitalist creed is there any mention about the longevity of the workforce, the economy, or the planet.

There is an undercurrent made up of the dwindling middle class. You see their thoughts on blogs, on the news, and now in their demonstrations. It's made up of real people that just want to have a decent life but can't afford it.

The profit motive has run amok and now corporations can't employ people and stay competitive.

What is the answer?
