Blacklisted: The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither “concrete facts” nor “irrefutable evidence” to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document obtained by The Intercept.

Watch An Active Protection System Destroy An RPG Fired At Israeli Tank

Watch An Active Protection System Destroy An RPG Fired At Israeli Tank | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
We have discussed Active Protection Systems many times before, but it is another thing seeing one work operationally. The video below depicts a Merkava IV tank being fired on in Gaza by an RPG, with Trophy intercepting and destroying the explosive projectile before it could plow through the tank's side armor.
Artur Coelho's insight:

já percebi para que serve a guerra em gaza. havia que carimbar sistemas de armamento como combat proven. meninos, como está demonstrado, um merkava sobrevive a uma rpg graças às maravilhas da tecnologia das empresas de armamento israelita. toca lá a fazer fila para equipar os T-90 e M-1 com esta maravilha. simulações é uma coisa mas com cobaias vivas parece bem mais real.

What ‘urban physics’ could tell us about how cities work - The Boston Globe

What ‘urban physics’ could tell us about how cities work - The Boston Globe | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
What does a city look like? To Franz-Josef Ulm, an engineering professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, it looks like a material with a molecular structure. With colleagues, Ulm has begun analyzing cities based on factors such as building arrangement, each building’s center of mass, and how they’re ordered around each other. He has concluded that Boston’s structure looks like an “amorphous liquid.” Seattle is another liquid, and so is Los Angeles. Chicago, which was designed on a grid, looks like glass, he says; New York resembles a highly ordered crystal. If the analogy does hold up, Ulm hopes it will give planners a new tool to understand a city’s structure, its energy use, and possibly even its resilience to climate change.

I Traveled to Palestine-Israel And Discovered There is no 'Palestinian-Israeli Conflict' | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
Contrary to what's been reported in the news for years, there is no Israeli-Palestinian conflict. None, zero, zilch, diddly-squat. I can say with confidence that Palestinians have no agency....
Artur Coelho's insight:

"there is no 'conflict,' only the omnipresent power of the Israeli government and those who resist it. This is important to understand."

The Fasinatng … Frustrating … Fascinating History of Autocorrect | Gadget Lab | WIRED | Outbreaks of Futurity | Scoop.it
David Sparshott Invoke the word autocorrect and most people will think immediately of its hiccups—the sort of hysterical, impossible errors one finds collected on sites like Damn You Autocorrect. But despite the inadvertent hilarity, the real marvel of our mobile text-correction systems is how astoundingly good they are. It's not too much of an exaggeration…
