Buckminster Fuller once said, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” This is exactly what Satoshi has done. Calling Bitcoin a “disruptive technology” is an understatement.

From Yahoo News: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday described US Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump as "talented" and "outstanding," welcoming his stance on Russia. "He is a very outstanding man, unquestionably talented," Putin told journalists after his annual press conference in Moscow. "It's not up to us to judge his virtue, that is up to US voters, but he is the absolute leader of the presidential race," Putin added.
Once again, Putin shows he can see reality clearly and is unencumbered by ideological blindness (as are some many of our so-called "leaders"). These two men might be the best hope for peace we have... like Reagan and Gorbie PART II
RUSH: I have a headline here from the Washington Times: "White House Declares Total Victory Over GOP in Budget Battle." That headline's a misnomer. There was never a battle. None of this was opposed. The Republican Party didn't stand up to any of it.. .
"Sanctuary cities, fully funded. All refugees, fully funded. The release of criminal aliens, fully funded. Everything! The Democrat leftist wet dream has just been paid for."

who ever wrote this got it wrong, OUR GALAXY is NOT the Milky Way, we are only refuges here. OUT HOME is Sagittarius Dwarf. We are the product of a Super Nova much older than the stars found in the Milky Way. Think about about what the means.

RaKeTu, which claims to offer encrypted VoIP and chat on all major platforms except Linux (which they say is coming soon). The company is not specific about what types of encryption they use, however, and do not mention any of the recognized standards of encryption mentioned above. They are also, for the time being, closed source. They do, however, have a hilarious intro video.
Recent research has determined that the famous Stradivarius violin owes its unique, esteemed sound to the last Maunder Minimum. The solar condition changed the texture of the trees that provided the wood from which the instrument was crafted. So lovers of classical music can place their orders for the next generation of incomparable violins, coming - giving the trees time to mature - in about 100 years.
Studies flip 'climate change' notions upside down... it getting colder... it's the Sun, man. A good read that cuts through the "global warming" BS
A prominent Russian millionaire with high-level ties to the Kremlin has been found dead inside a Washington hotel.... Lesin is credited with creating Russia Today, the English-language news network backed by the Russian government.
This situation looks like it has the potential to cause massive geopolitical upheaval going forward.

In the next ten years, Earth’s population is expected to increase by one billion, and only 3% of our planet’s water is fit for drinking or farming. Most of that relatively small amount is trapped in frozen glaciers.

Pre-Vaporization is nothing new. but what the researchers did was develop a new polymer membrane made of cheap, local materials, that can be mass produced in printed and cut sheets for widespread use
Barack Obama’s repeated insistence that Bashar al-Assad must leave office – and that there are ‘moderate’ rebel groups in Syria capable of defeating him – has in recent years provoked quiet dissent, and even overt opposition, among some of the most senior officers on the . . .
A look at Pulitzer Prize winning author Seymour Hersh’s expose on the military’s resistance to funding Syrian “moderate rebels” — a figment of the administration’s imagination. Hersh names names and takes it back to the summer of 2013 when the Obama administration was pushing the sarin gas attack as a basis for overt American involvement in Syria.

“Detainee is an admitted veteran jihadist with combat experience beginning in 1990 and it is assessed he would engage in hostilities against US forces, if released,” JTF-GTMO found.
I have long said we created al Qaeda, and we did. Then we torture people of faith, the release them in to the wild, or allow a prison break to occur (this has happened many times)... but why? To create more monsters, to justify endless war. This exactly what the so-called "War of Terror" has been about about form the start: to make Islam the enemy of the West and fan the flames into a raging fire. Now ask yourself, who stands to gain.
A baby girl born today is now expected to live to an average age of 82.8 years and a boy to 78.8 years, according to the Office for National Statistics. But if the results seen in animals are reproduced in humans, lifespan could increase by nearly 50 per cent.
