Canadian miltary intends to spend $1 billion on armed drones

Canadian miltary intends to spend $1 billion on armed drones | DJ.Womble Daily - Magazine | Scoop.it
Senior Canadian defence leaders pitched the idea of spending up to $600 million for armed drones to take part in the Libyan war shortly before the conflict ended, according to documents obtained by the Citizen.

Which Canadian citizens will be targeted by DOMESTIC missions?

 

Documents obtained by the Citizen show that military leaders saw the Libyan war as a possible way to move its stalled UAV program forward. According to a briefing presented Aug. 16, 2011 to Defence Minister Peter MacKay, they pointed out that the purchase of such aircraft for the Libyan conflict could kick start their larger project to buy UAVs for both domestic and international missions.

As a follow on from PhD research we are conducting a series of short (60 to 90 second) experiments examining the impact of pattern on perceived size.

Hello

As a follow on from PhD research at the School of Textiles and Design, Heriot Watt University, we are conducting a series of short (60 to 90 second) experiments examining the impact of pattern on perceived size. We intend to publish the results of this study and will send you a link to the article when it’s complete. We will invite you to complete an experiment every week and we hope you’ll be able to do lots but if you can’t one is better than none! Sometimes they may appear similar to ones you’ve already done, but each one is different and we really value your opinion. You cannot get these experiments wrong as it’s all about perception.

You will be shown 9 images. Each image shows 2 squares, 1 patterned and 1 black, you will be asked to tell us whether the patterned square appears to be bigger, smaller or the same size as the black square. Please give us your first impression and move onto the next image ideally within 10 seconds. Please don’t try to work out what’s going on, there is no right or wrong answer we need to know what your first impression is.

We hope you can help

Reuters | U.N. watchdog may lower its estimate of missing Iran uranium | DJ.Womble Daily - Magazine | Scoop.it
VIENNA (Reuters) - The United Nations' atomic watchdog may decide that less uranium is missing at an Iranian research site than it had previously thought, diplomats say, and that may go some way to easing...

U.N. inspectors have asked Iran to explain a "discrepancy" after an inventory they made last year of natural uranium metal and process waste at the Tehran facility showed there was 19.8 kg less than the Iranian laboratory's own count.

The hidden atrocity of Diego Garcia | ThePrisma.co.uk

The hidden atrocity of Diego Garcia | ThePrisma.co.uk | DJ.Womble Daily - Magazine | Scoop.it

- The long struggle to return home - Between 1968 and 1973 the UK forcibly removed the indigenous population of the Island of Diego "The forced removal of the Ilois was parallel in its unlawfulness by its sheer brutality. The UK and US effectively blockaded the Island stopping food ships from arriving leading to starvation.

Rumours began to circulate that the Island would be bombed and US aircraft flew low over the Island leading many to believe that bombing was imminent.

Perhaps the most shocking tactic employed by the UK and US was the systematic destruction of the Islands dog population which numbered over 1000.

Dogs were vital to the Ilois. They were beloved pets, hunting partners and a source of joy for the Islands children. On the orders of Sir Bruce Greatback, Colonial Governor of the Seychelles (1969-1973) the dogs were first poisoned and the remaining were rounded up, contained and gassed."

Yianni is a great comedian still waiting for stardom. He uses the audience but don’t be afraid to sit at the front. He challenges all the shibboleths of our age with intelligence and of course wit. You wont be able to see the skin colours of the world in black, white and brown anymore only the spectrum of a rainbow.

Romney's horror trip to Israel: The two hours he failed to spend in the occupied territories: | DJ.Womble Daily - Magazine | Scoop.it
Mitt Romney’s visit to Israel shows just how much of a wedge issue the Republican Party has made of Israel.

So how about all you U.S. politicians — Republicans and Democrats — stop feeding off this conflict for political gain. Stop using this conflict as a backdrop for campaign photo-ops and fund-raisers. Stop making things even worse by telling the most hard-line Israelis everything that they want to hear, just to grovel for Jewish votes and money, while blatantly ignoring the other side. There are real lives at stake out there. If you’re not going to do something constructive, stay away. They can make enough trouble for themselves on their own.
