Man winched to safety after Broken Head rock fall "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

A man who had to be winched for safety after falling off rocks at Brays Beach, near Broken Head, yesterday was lucky because emergency services had problems accessing him via the narrow road, according to one local.

Former NSW MLC and Byron Shire Councillor Ian Cohen told Echonetdaily that emergency services road access to the site was made extremely difficult because of beachgoers parking illegally along both sides of narrow Seven Mile Beach Road.

It is not the first time that Mr Cohen, who lives in the area, has complained of the dangers caused by illegal parking along the sides of the sandy road.

But he said that despite council rangers patrolling the road and issuing $220 fines, the problem is not going away.

Council rangers are patrolling but disaster is waiting to happen with unregulated summer hordes showing no respect, he said.

Rescue had sirens on due to speeding traffic mainly surfers charging the other way.

This was a simple broken leg accident could have been a disaster with a fire.

Im no oracle but I see disaster looming and backpackers just drive off, Mr Cohen said.

The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter rescued the 24-year-old man from Brays Beach on Sunday afternoon after he fell onto rocks and into the ocean.

The man was recovered from the water by members of the local Volunteer Rescue Association, together with police and ambulance emergency crews, and taken to Brays Beach.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter medical team were winched onto the beach to treat the patient for lower leg fractures.

Given the remoteness of location from road access, the medical team were required to prepare the man for a winch rescue stretcher recovery.

Together with the two medical team members, the patient was recovered from the beach by the rescue helicopter and flown to Lismore Base Hospital for further tr...

Innocent Man From Tennessee Will Stay In Prison Despite Charges Being Dropped "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Source: Filming Cops

From the Tennessean, heres a crazy story about a man who looks to be doomed to years in prison, despite the fact that the charges that put him there have been dropped. You can thank the states parole board.

A judge and prosecutor dismissed the criminal allegations against John Leon Smith, but in the eyes of the Tennessee Board of Parole hes still guilty.

The man will remain in prison until next year at least maybe until 2026

Smith served about half of a 40-year prison sentence for a violent armed robbery and threatening to kill workers at a Nashville restaurant in 1992. Smith fired several shots, which wounded one worker, and as he fled from police, fired shots at officers, according to appeals court records.

I was drinking and drugging and it cost me my life, he said. I threw it away in 30 minutes.

He was released on parole in October 2013, according to state records.

Seventeen months later he was arrested on two felonies, alleging possession of marijuana and a weapon, court records show. At the time, Smith lived at a North Nashville home with two other people.

Because of his criminal history, Smith wasnt supposed to have guns.

Court records and transcripts say undercover police intercepted a UPS package with nearly 8 pounds of marijuana inside and delivered it to the home, where Smith answered the door. About 30 minutes later, another man arrived and tried to leave with the package before he was arrested, according to a transcript of one detectives testimony.

Officers later found a handgun in furniture in Smiths bedroom and three rifles and a shotgun in a separate closet, records say.

 A Nashville judge dismissed the gun charge two weeks later after hearing testimony from the homeowner that Smith did n...

Why The Battles Against Liberalism, Globalism And The New World Order Are All Related "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Do you love liberty and freedom? If you ask that question to people randomly on the street, you are going to get the same answer over and over again. Everyone wants liberty and freedom, but what they dont understand is that there is an inverse relationship between the size of government and the amount of liberty and freedom that we get to enjoy. Every time a new law, rule or regulation is established, our liberties and our freedoms are restricted in some way. So the bigger government becomes, the less liberty and freedom we actually have.

On the federal level, there are now literally hundreds of thousands of laws, rules and regulations. And when you throw in the state and local levels, the total number of laws, rules and regulations governing all of our lives is in the millions. This is something that we learned about in law school, and it always stuck with me.

Of course we cant do away with government entirely, because then we would have anarchy. For example, we dont want the freedom to run around murdering one another at random. So it is very good to have laws against murder.

But in general, our founders intended for this to be a nation where government was limited and where our freedoms and liberties were maximized.

Sadly, what we have today is radically different from what our founders intended. Government has just gotten bigger and bigger over time, and this is true on the federal, state and local levels. And the bigger government gets, the more oppressive it tends to become. North Korea, Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany are three examples of what can happen when big government spins wildly out of control.

As I run for Congress, this is something that I am working very hard to educate people about. I am running on a pro-liberty platform, and that means that I want to try to restore the constitutional balance that our founders originally intended. In order to do that, we need to dramatically shrink the size of our federal government, and doing so would mean much more liberty and freedom for us all.

But you should see the loo...


World's most successful environmental agreement has been in place for thirty years this month "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

CSIROscope, 15 September 2017:  

This weekend marks the 30th birthday of the Montreal Protocol, often dubbed the worlds most successful environmental agreement. The treaty, signed on September 16, 1987, is slowly but surely reversing the damage caused to the ozone layer by industrial gases such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).

Each year, during the southern spring, a hole appears in the ozone layer above Antarctica. This is due to the extremely cold temperatures in the winter stratosphere (above 10km altitude) that allow byproducts of CFCs and related gases to be converted into forms that destroy ozone when the sunlight returns in spring.

As ozone-destroying gases are phased out, the annual ozone hole is generally getting smaller a rare success story for international environmentalism.

Back in 2012, our Saving the Ozone series marked the Montreal Protocols silver jubilee and reflected on its success. But how has the ozone hole fared in the five years since?

The Antarctic ozone hole has continued to appear each spring, as it has since the late 1970s. This is expected, as levels of the ozone-destroying halocarbon gases controlled by the Montreal Protocol are still relatively high. The figure below shows that concentrations of these human-made substances over Ant...

Catalonia police chief refuses to comply with Madrid's attempt to take over local police "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Spain's central government plan to take direct control over the local police force in the autonomous region of Catalonia in a bid to halt the upcoming independence referendum, faced staunch resistance, with local officials denouncing it as "intervention attempt." On Saturday, the chief of the Catalan police, Jose Maria Romero de Tejada, was informed that both he and his officers have to answer to the Civil Guard and Interior Ministry commander Colonel Diego Perez de los Cobos. The Catalan police, Madrid claims, have not been complying with their instructions to clear protesters away from government buildings. Although de Tejada remains formally in charge, he must now take orders from Colonel Cobos, who has already deployed additional National Police and Civil Guard forces into the autonomous region.

Iran Nuclear Deal: Can The U.S. Walk Away? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

By Eric R. Mandel
The Jerusalem Post
September 23, 2017

The Iran deal is not a fair deal to this country US President Donald Trump,

September 14, 2017

What if the Trump administration comes to the conclusion that the Iran agreement (JCPOA ) authored by the previous administration has destabilized the Middle East and undermined American interests? Since it was signed, Iran has actively supported the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of Sunnis, while being complicit in Syrian President Bashar Assads genocide of his own people.

Can the US wash its hands of the agreement, or are we stuck with it? Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly asked President Trump to either amend or withdraw from the 2015 agreement. There is no doubt that president Barack Obama believed that he knew better than the Israelis what was in their best interest, but now there is a new sheriff in town, who for years has made it clear that he believes the Iran agreement is a danger to America.

Image may contain: 2 people, stripes, text and closeup

There are no American inspectors anywhere in Iran, or anyone else inspecting military sites, where agreement-breaking nuclear weapons development may be taking place. Can America withdraw or amend the agreement if Iran technically adheres to its commitment according to the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency), which refuses to confront Iranian intransigence on military inspections? Can Trump say sayonara, even if the other members of the P5+1 think it is not in their interest to leave the agreement? The answer is yes, but with a few caveats.

First, the Iran deal is not what it was presented by its authors to be. President Obama signed an agreement that betrayed his own words, promising to end their nuclear program. The agreement in fact guarantees an internationally accepted nuclear program in eight more years.

However, critics of withdrawal point out that despite the agreement having never having been signed, it is a commitment that was witnessed by five other major powers, and the consequences of America withdrawing would cast doubt on Western assurances in the future, undermining future negotiations.

The JCPOA is the most important American treaty of the 21st century, except that it was never submitted to the Senate for approval as a treaty.

According to Bruce Fein in The Washington Times, the JCPOA was intended to constrain Irans nuclear ambitions in exchange for a relaxation of sanctions, and must be construed a...

Humanizing technology

Its easier to turn technology in the direction of democracy and social justice when its developed with social and emotional intelligence..

One key element of the answer to that question is to generate a digital identity that is not under the control of a corporation, an organization or a government.

I have been co-leading the community surrounding the Internet Identity Workshop for the last 12 years. After many explorations of the techno-possibility landscape we have finally made some breakthroughs that will lay the foundations of a real internet-scale infrastructure to support what are called user-centric or self-sovereign identities.

Tanya Plibersek nervous no vote could win marriage equality campaign "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Tanya Plibersek, Australian Labor Party Deputy Opposition leader:

But Tanya Plibersek sees apathy as the biggest threat to the yes campaign.

 Ive been nervous the whole way, she told ABCs Insiders. I think its going to be very interesting to see the level of turnout.

I think that the biggest threat to the yes campaigns success is people assuming that this is in the bag because they know that a majority of Australians support marriage equality and they think well, my vote wont matter, you know, everybody else will post back their yes vote.

The Guardian article below


The pro-gay marriage crowd in Australia keep saying that the majority of Australians support same-sex marriage but theres no solid evidence of this. Its just liberal pro gay marriage spin.

Christians should help the No vote by not being apathetic, not believing gay and liberal propaganda about the result, and tick the NO box on their ballot form and pop it in the post.

No More Long Hikes with Tight-arse Mates Trying to Avoid ATM Fees "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"


Huge expeditions with tight-arse mates to find their banks ATM are set to become a thing of the past, with Australias big four banks all ditching ATM fees today.

This will allow the boys to stay in the same beer garden for an entire afternoon, one man said. My tight-arse mates only ever get $20 from the ATM and its obvious to anyone who knows basic beer maths that it doesnt make sense to pay a $2-plus fee for that withdrawal, so we always have to pull up stumps and move on after every round. This destroys all momentum for anyone whos had some luck with a bird.

However, experts have warned that of unexpected consequences, with obesity rates set to balloon.

Im not sure how Im going to stay fit any more, one friend of a tight-arse said. A walk to another suburb or state to find a fee-less ATM between pubs always helped burn off a schoon or two.

To make up for lost profits, the big four banks plan to charge a $90 fee for logging onto internet banking.


The Masters of Gary Renard "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Gary Renard


Around Christmas of 1992, a man named Gary Renard, living in the remote backwoods of Maine in the northeastern corner of the US, came out of a meditation to find two stylish, good-looking people, a man and a woman apparently in their thirties, sitting on his couch. He had never seen them before and had no idea of where they had come from.

There was nothing threatening about them, Renard would later recall; in fact, they looked extraordinary peaceful, which I found reassuring. Looking back on the event I would wonder why I had not been more fearful, given that these very solid-looking people had apparently manifested out of nowhere. Still, this first appearance by my soon-to-be friends was so surreal that fear somehow didnt seem appropriate.

The man and woman called themselves Arten and Pursah. They said they were ascended masters who had come to teach Renard some lessons about life, the universe, and Jesus Christ.

So began a strange series of episodes that would continue off and on for the next nine years and would culminate in Renards first book, The Disappearance of the Universe, published in 2003. The story would grow stranger. Arten and Pursah soon identified themselves as later incarnations of the two disciples of Jesus that we know as Thaddeus and Thomas respectively. They began to tell Renard about the true nature of the teaching of Jesus, whom they call J.

The portrait of J and his times as drawn by Arten and Pursah will be more or less familiar to readers who have some familiarity with the historical Jesus as unveiled by scholarship over the past 200 years. The Gospels were not written by Jesus disciples or indeed by anyone who knew him personally (the one exception, Arten and Pursah say, is Mark, who met the master as a small child). The Gospels, composed some forty to eighty years after Jesus time, contained some authentic sayings and deeds of his as well as many admixtures and alterations to suit the developing Christian theology. Dont you find it a little strange that not one complete original copy of Js own words in his own language survived the rise of Christianity? Pursah asks.1 Do you really think that was an accident?

Pursah is of...


The Kali Yuga: Dicing with Death "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"


One of the most well-known cultural imports from India that has exerted an influence on Western thought is that of the Kali Yuga. This topic has been particularly dwelt upon by the Perennialist School, which includes authors such as Ren Gunon and Alain Danilou. The reason for the popularity of this subject in the West is two-fold: Firstly, the Kali Yuga can be used to explain a number of political, economic, and environmental problems which currently face humanity. Secondly, the Kali Yuga and whole concept of cyclic time is not entirely foreign. The theory of time as non-linear and not always progressive is a very ancient one, rooted in our own past. A similar cycle of Ages is present in Greek history, notably within the works of Hesiod, where he speaks of a fall from a Golden Age towards an apex of decline in the Iron Age. This cycle is also found in the Volusp of the Poetic Edda which outlines Ragnark and a Wolf Age (the equivalent of the Kali Yuga/Iron Age).

The four Yugas (Satya, Treta, Dvapara, and Kali) have two standards of measurement, the chronological and the ethical. The chronological approach is based on astronomical positions and mathematical calculations. The stars and planetary positions have long been thought of as capable of influencing human behaviour via astrology, so from this viewpoint the cosmos itself would be the cause of the Yugas. Joscelyn Godwin brings the astronomical perspective to the fore when he states that one of the recurrent themes of the Golden Age is that during it the earths axis was perpendicular to the ecliptic If this were so there would be no seasons, but equal day and night throughout the year.1 The influence on time would therefore be direct and visible. The symbolism used to portray the Golden Age often implies an alteration to time, as major planetary conjunctions are said to occur at the end of the Kali Yuga and they are permanent conjunctions, which strongly implies time itself ceases.

However, the majority of issues which arise in the Kali Yuga can also be attributed to a decline in human morality and ethics, so many of the problems could be entirely man-made. The imagery of time, the ultimate horror for all sapient life, could simply have been added as a metaphor for a more psychologically healthy state, wherein man no longer feels enslaved by others from the cradle to the grave, enjoying the spontaneous nature of life in a seem...


The Cathars & Their Modern Day Revival "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"


Most forms of spirituality or religion look back to the past in some way. The past is a source of origin, tradition, revelation, and inspiration. For the medieval Cathars the most distant past was, as it is for most religions, the time in which the mythic foundation of the world was established. More recent developments, such as the coming of Jesus, brought the story forward to a new chapter. The Cathars believed that their initiation rite, the consolamentum, was the result of an unbroken tradition stretching back to Jesus himself.

Aspiring modern Cathars look back to the myths of the original spiritual realm, the fall of Satan and the angels, and the creation of the material world in which souls reincarnate until they can escape. They also look back to the historical groups and individuals who were involved with the development of this worldview in the first place. Modern esoteric lineages typically derive not from antiquity but from revivals that occurred in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Thus when exploring movements like the Gnostics of antiquity or the Cathars of the Middle Ages, the modern spiritual seeker is often presented with a melange of spiritually-unsympathetic popular history, obtuse scholarly research, and a revivalist esoteric tradition that often has little to do with critical history.

The Cathars are best known not for what they did but for what was done to them. The Albigensian Crusade, launched in 1209 on the authority of Pope Innocent III, laid waste to the Languedoc in the south of France. The Inquisition was subsequently founded to root out and eradicate what remained of the Cathar heresy. Books on the Cathars focus on the relentless march of the crusading army as it moves from castle to castle, siege to siege, atrocity to atrocity. Or historians weigh up the influence of the Inquisition, a ruthless bureaucracy that survived into the nineteenth century. Tourists visit the Languedoc, now branded as Cathar country, for the fairytale citadel of Carcassonne, restored in the nineteenth century, for the wild ruins of medieval castles on challenging hilltops, and for the relaxed locals, good weather, cheap food and wine.

The reader of a history of the Cathars encounters a list of atrocities so numbingly extensive she is at risk of experiencing compassion fatigue. After the crusaders ended the siege of the city of Bram, 99 men had their noses and upper lips cut off, were blinded, and were...


What Are Humans Made Of? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"


The figure seems to hover around 95 percent. Thats the proportion of the universe that consists of dark matter and dark energy entities that are only dimly and indirectly perceived by scientific apparatus.

This fact has gotten wide attention lately, but one implication has gone unnoticed: if this is the case for the physical universe, it must also be the case for our own bodies. Therefore 95 percent of your body is made up of matter and energy about which nearly nothing is known.

This makes the ancient dictum Know thyself somewhat harder to satisfy than one might have thought.

What, then, is the body made of? It is a question that conventional thought cannot answer and for the most part cannot contemplate. This leads us to consider views of the body in the worlds esoteric traditions. As in most areas, they dont agree on all points, but the similarities are more striking than the differences.

The first thing we have to acknowledge is that the body, taken as a purely physical entity, has no structure or coherence whatsoever. This is a strange claim to make, but we can see the truth of it simply by contemplating the difference between a living body and a corpse. The living body has coherence; it is capable of motion and activity, and can sustain itself for several decades. The corpse lacks all such features. It will rot to pieces in a very short time.

There must, then, be an organising structure that holds the physical body together during earthly life. One common name for this, which comes out of early twentieth-century Theosophy, is the etheric body, sometimes known as the etheric double. (I will be mostly using Theosophical terms in this article not because they are necessarily any better, but because they are the most commonly used ones in New Age contexts.)

Thus, for our discussion, we have to redefine the word body. From an esoteric point of view, a body can be described as a vehicle for structuring experience at a particular level of existence.

So what is this etheric body? Here is a firsthand observation. The American writer Rosanne Daryl Thomas describes the death of her cat:

He was leaving us. I held him. He pushed his head under my arm, purring as I stroked him and spoke softly, wanting to fill him with love. And then suddenly his face grew sharper and thinner. Hi...


NERAM's Centenary of Beersheba exhibition "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

This Friday, 29 September 2017, three new exhibitions open at the New England Regional Art Museum (NERAM)..

The first is the opening of a Centenary of Beersheba exhibition. This post focuses on the first.

A century ago young men from the New England region found themselves on the other side of the world fighting against the Ottoman Turkish army from Egypt to Lebanon.

The new exhibition, Horse Power: Light Horse in Palestine to Beersheba and beyond, provides an opportunity  o look at the day to day life of these soldiers through their own words. The exhibition will be opened by Max Tavener, President of the Armidale RSL Sub Branch at NERAM at 6pm on Friday 29 September 2017.

After the Great War commenced in August 1914 there was a rush of enthusiastic volunteers who joined up from communities around our region, said Robert Heather, Art Museum Director. Young men from towns like Armidale, Tamworth, Tenterfield, Walcha and Glen Innes were fighting a determined enemy in the rugged, biblical landscape of Jericho, Jerusalem, Megiddo and of course Beersheba. We can only imagine the impact that these experiences had on them at the time and for the rest of their lives.

One hundred years later these are locations straight out of todays headlines as well, he said. In 1918 Australian troops were the first to enter the ancient Syrian city of Damascus and were welcomed by the inhabitants of Aleppo as liberators.

The New England Regional Art Museum has been working with Guest Curator Bill Oates, University Archivist at the University of New England who has been researching and curating the exhibition which will launch the program for the commemorations of the Centenary of the Battle for Beersheba in the New England region, where many of the soldiers in the 4th Australian Light Horse Brigade came from.

Most Australians would have heard about the Battle of Beersheba in October 1917 and the historic charge of the Australian Light Horse one evening to capture the water so desperately needed by the horses and men, said Bill Oates, exhibition curator. Fewer people know about the long preparation leading to that moment and the additional year of successful campaigning that followed that day.



GCR/RV Intel SITREP: "Healing the Soul of the World" -- September 24, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Source: Dinar Chronicles

Well, another Saturday night is upon us is it coming and going? At this point we don't know.

There was no Church Bank call tonight because we were asked not to go on the air.

There is no advanced intel tonight because we were asked to put any out. Especially about Trump, Mueller, North Korea, Israel or Kurdistan.

There is however USN replacing USD that we can assure everyone happened as of 12:01am EDT. Hallelujah!

As such, we're waiting to release the website until we know when the RV release will be forthcoming.

We're just not sure how or when they're going to roll it out today, Sunday.

The RV could come literally at any second Sunday. Anytime.

That is the problem, we have several windows to choose from. Who knows which one is accurate.

And since we're in truth a post RV website at heart, it only makes sense for us to wait a little longer and aspire to release the Human Angel Services post RV

We currently have 55,000 sign ups and will be over 60,000 at this rate before October 1, 2017. Again, thank you for your overwhelming support in rounding up all the Human Angels. It's truly been a humbling experience for Showme and I to watch all of you Human Angels answer the Clarion Call.

Tribal Elder Beating and Tasing by Police Unacceptable: Cause for Firing! "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Tribal Elder beat and tased by South Dakota law enforcement. Photos from Facebook


Published September 24, 2017

A week ago, late Saturday night, 64-year-old Yankton Sioux tribal elder Raymond Cournoyer, Sr. received word his mother was going to make her journey to the spirit world. As any concerned and loving son would do, he attempted to rush to her deathbed at the Good Samaritan Center in Wagner, South Dakota.

Sadly, he never made it to her side before she walked on.

Unfortunately, for this tribal elder, he was driving while American Indian, in Wagner. Apparently, too fast. Upon arrival at the Good Samaritan Center, he was approached by two police officers who had followed him into the parking lot of the nursing home. He tried to explain his sense of urgency to get to his mothers side. He proceeded to walk towards the entry to the nursing home to be with his mother. The officers told him to stop. He said told them: No.

The two officers involvedone a Wagner Police officer and the other a member of the South Dakota Highway Patrolapparently did not believe Cournoyers story. One of the officers proceeded to slam Cournoyer to the ground, while the other opened fire on him with a taser gun. He was immediately handcuffed.

Some 45 minutes went by as the officers detained the tribal elderall the while his mother passed away inside the nursing homeso the Wagner Police chief could arrive to figure how to charge Cournoyer.

Photographs of the tased tribal elder were posted by his daughter on social media. The disturbing photographs showed numerous places on Cournoyers body where he was injured by the taser gun and the excessive force of the officers.

As do other Americans who read about the national epidemic of police brutality, I often try to give the law enforcement officers the benefit. However, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to do so. I know American Indians, on a per capita basis, are more likely to die as the result of law enforcemen...

Stomp Dance Kicks Off Chickasaw Annual Meeting & Festival "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Chickasaw Nation stomp dance troupe members, from left, Buddy Parchcorn, Cotie Poe and Jesse Lindsey sing and stomp dance at a recent demonstration. Everyone is welcome to join dancers Sept. 29 at Kullihoma to kick off the 57th Chickasaw Annual Meeting and 29th Festival.

Published September 23, 2017

ADA, OKLAHOMA The Chickasaw Nation will host a community stomp dance Sept. 29 at Kullihoma to kick off the 57th Chickasaw Annual Meeting and 29th Festival. The celebration begins at 7 p.m.

Festivities will continue throughout the week at various locations throughout the Chickasaw Nation culminating with Gov. Bill Anoatubbys annual State of the Nation address. It will be held 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 7, at Fletcher Auditorium on the Murray State College campus.

Visitors may also enjoy a social stickball game at Kullihoma Sept. 29. Stickball has been played by Native Americans for centuries and is the forerunner of lacrosse.

Stomp dances are open to the public and include traditional song and dance, food and fellowship amid the natural and historic beauty of Kullihoma.

Stomp dancing has deep roots in the Chickasaw culture.

LaDonna Brown, director of research and cultural interpretation for the Chickasaw Nation, explained dances were often connected with spiritual, ritual, ceremonial or social events, such as a spring harvest celebration or fall festival.

There are still different dances for various occasions. The Chickasaws remember dances for their spiritual nature, yet they have become predominantly social in modern times. No matter the type of dancing, it is always an opportunity to come together as a community and guest participation is welcome and encouraged.

Men sing stomp dance songs in a call-and-answer format, following a male song leader, who often sets the dance rhythm using a handheld turtle shell shaker.

Women enhance the rhythms with shakers worn on their legs. These shakers are often made of turtle shells or deer hooves. As traditional box turtles are endangered, women fill milk cans with river stone to mimic the rhythms produced by authentic turtle shell shakers.

Social dances often have animal-themed names, like the snake dance and the raccoon dance. Each social dance has a fun and unique technique.

On Saturday, Sept. 30, visitors are....

Video Shows Timothy Davis Being Carried Into Jail, Unconscious, In His Underwear After Cops Viciously Beat And Stripped Him. "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Columbus, Ohio cops have held true to their tradition of brutality and unethical tactics in the case of Timothy Davis.

Daviss mother believes video released by the Franklin County Sheriffs Office Tuesday proves her son was so badly beaten by Columbus Police that he was unconscious and couldnt even walk.

Davis case gained national attention after cell phone video showed him being stripped and viciously attacked by a gang of cops on September 1st:

The jail video, provided by NBC4i,  shows Davis being carried into the Franklin County Jail by law-enforcement by his hands and feet. In the video, Davis has been stripped of his clothes with only his boxers partially on.

Davis mother, Valerie Johnson, was clearly upset after seeing the video which shows police treating her son like an animal.

I wouldnt even, thats like an animal, this is like an animal. This is not like my son. This is not a human being, said Johnson.

He was so badly beaten that my child couldnt even walk. Look at this video. My son naked, my son carried in face down. My son was unconscious. My son told me when he woke up he was laying in there naked in the cell, said Johnson.

The Franklin County Sheriffs office told NBC4 it was working to get answers about why Davis was carried into the jail to be booked. Columbus Police did not respond to NBC4is inquiry about the new video.

The Franklin County Sheriffs Office alleges Davis was never denied medical care. He spent three days in the hospital after the brutal beating by police, and has been seen multiple times by jail medical staff since he was booked on September 1st.

Personal and Global Attacks Become Lethal: Is the Disclosure War Reaching a Climax? [Part I]

by David Wilcock
September 23, 2017, 12:12 pm

Unprecedented solar emissions. Huge wildfires smoking out the US. Massive earthquakes. Three different monster hurricanes that steered perfectly into Houston, Florida and Puerto Rico.

Damages to the already fragile US economy could easily exceed 1 trillion dollars -- at a time when there is nothing left to restore it with.

Within the UFO / Seeking Truth community, we saw the tragic deaths of Jim Marrs and William Tompkins -- as well as the possible attempted murders of Graham Hancock and David Wilcock, as we will discuss in Part Two.

David's insider 'Paul' had everything he owned stolen from him, as well as serious death threats. Pete Peterson's house has now been emptied to the bare walls and his trailers, packed with priceless classified items, are under imminent threat.

A massive, coordinated online attack against Corey Goode, including the destruction of his business and the expected loss of his children, was intended to lead to a fake, staged 'suicide', made believable by his overall anticipated collapse.

This all occurred shortly after Ancient Aliens, a top History Channel show, featured Corey Goode and William Tompkins' Secret Space Program testimony in an episode entitled "The Majestic Twelve", which aired on July 7, 2017.

So much has happened since our last update a month ago that it is difficult to summarize everything. Are these events interconnected? The answer definitely appears to be yes.

Is Blockchain Technology Really the Answer to Decentralized Storage? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

While the Blockchain is certainly changing the world, its not a jack-of-all-trades. Have you heard of chain washing?


Moving Data to/from the Cloud "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Warning: Sexual practices, bodily fluids

Theres an old USENET dictum: never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of magnetic tapes. (corollary: yeah, but the latencys killer)

What do you do when you need to move a whole lot of data into the cloud? Lets say a petabyte? (a million gigabytes) Assuming you can get 50% saturation out of a gigabit link thats about 500 years transfer-time. And, if youre like me and you live in Verizons metered LTE cloud, where every gigabyte over 30gb costs $15, itd cost a bit less than $1 million. This is a real question, though, for organizations that are moving video archives (think: all the cop-camera footage in a major city) (heh, Im kidding, major cities dont keep that stuff!) or libraries, or genomic databases; what do they do?

Amazon has an answer! Its a truckload of tapes! Things start small with the Snowball appliance an armored box for data. Its pretty cool: you set it up on your network, copy your data to it, you ship it to amazon and they offload it into S3, and your data is in the cloud!

In the Snowball appliance, the truck is FEDex or UPS, or maybe your system administrator has to drive it somewhere in the back of their car. I have scary memories of when I was a young pup at Digital and our RA-81s moved from one facility to another in the back of my little Honda CRX. Nowadays most people dont even understand I put a VAX 11/750 rack in the back of a Honda CRX and recognize that for the herculean feat it was. I also dropped a VR/219 monitor down a flight of stairs in the process; it survived.

If the armored box of hard drives doesnt work for you, theres the Snowmobile:

Amazon snowmobile 40,000lbs of lock in

The Snowmobile is what youd use if you had an Exabyte of data: its a small convoy of semitrailers full of hard drives. I wonder whether the NSA had an armed midnight run from Ft Meade, MD to the new data center in Utah, or were they just cross-syncing the data all along? Theres a cool plot in there for a cyberpunk adventure: someone thinks theyre about to knock over a truck full of iPhones but accidentally they get a petabyte of CIA data; hilarity and body-count ensue.

But, none of that was what....

Clapper: His non-denial denials revisited "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

The former intelligence chief never actually refuted Obama administration spying on Trump. It would be peculiar if, as he now claims, James Clapper did not know about the Obama administration's monitoring of Paul Manafort. At the time, which appears to have been the autumn of 2016, Clapper was Obama's national intelligence director. The (dubious) raison d'tre of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) - a post-9/11 layering of yet more bureaucracy atop bureaucratic sprawl - was to ensure efficient information flow through the "community" of U.S. intelligence agencies. That said, it is a gross exaggeration to contend, as some are doing, that new revelations about the surveillance of Manafort, the former chairman of the Trump campaign, show that Clapper lied in a March 2017 interview by NBC's Chuck Todd. Instead, what we now know proves what I warned at the time of the interview: It was a mistake to construe Clapper's answers to Todd as a blanket denial of Obama spying on the Trump campaign. Carefully parsed, Clapper's comments left open the possibility - which some of us regarded as a high probability - that Manafort and other Trump associates had been under Obama-administration surveillance.

This article is creating a firestorm in the US now "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Bill Kristol Neocon Jew is an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel.

By Philip Giraldi

We dont need a war with Iran because Israel wants one and some rich and powerful American Jews are happy to deliver. Seriously, we dont need it.

I spoke recently at a conference on Americas war party where afterwards an elderly gentleman came up to me and asked,

Why doesnt anyone ever speak honestly about the six-hundred-pound gorilla in the room? Nobody has mentioned Israel in this conference and we all know its American Jews with all their money and power who are supporting every war in the Middle East for Netanyahu? Shouldnt we start calling them out and not letting them get away with it?

It was a question combined with a comment that I have heard many times before and my answer is always the same: any organization that aspires to be heard on foreign policy knows that to touch the live wire of Israel and American Jews guarantees a quick trip to obscurity.

Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment industries, meaning that no one will hear about or from the offending party ever again. They are particularly sensitive on the issue of so-called dual loyalty, particularly as the expression itself is a bit of a sham since it is pretty clear that some of them only have real loyalty to Israel.

Most recently, some pundits, including myself, have been warning of an impending war with Iran. To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed with fear...

A Brief Encounter with 'Today' "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

I thought I might actually listen to an edition of Today in its entirety today, following yesterday's post about its 'dumbing-down'. 

It was disappointingly political and hard-news-focused, with lots on Mrs May's speech and Moody's downgrading and Rohingyas and Uber and capitalism and universities and undocumented migrants. 

There wasn't a single science story on it and the only arts bit was James Naughtie interviewing a children's author. 

There was, however, the new Nature Notes section - something I wholly approve of. 

Today's Nature Notes featured Charles Smith Jones of the British Deer Society answering elementary-level questions from Mishal Husain that any Autumnwatch viewer would have been able to answer. Still, Mr Smith Jones volunteered the interesting fact that some stags are known to travel up to 50 kilometres to join in the rut. (After Brexit can we go back to miles please?)

Plus the programme ended with Simon Jenkins and Mr Bruce the Station Master plugging Simon's new book on English railway stations. I liked that. (And I like Simon's highly judgemental books on buildings). Near to me is Carnforth Station where Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson shared a Brief Encounter to the strains of Rachmaninov.

Buy A Bucket of Yuck, and God Refills for Free! "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Oh, Jim Bakker is going a bit nuts with his yuck in a bucket, insisting that everyone buy, and that all those filthy rich people, well, they should buy a million dollars worth, really! Why? Because end times, thats why, and money will be useless. Of course, ol Jim still seems to want piles of that useless stuff.

Guest John Shorey told viewers to stock up on Bakkers food buckets and not to worry about running out because God will miraculously refill them as needed.

When you empty a bucket of food, Shorey said, trust God to refill it.

Thats right nifty. Pity Jehovah cant see fit to just provide food directly, without the need to pour money into Bakkers pockets. Im sure they are counting on the rubes not giving this any thought, nor the fact that when the food bucket is empty, it will most certainly stay that way. I will admit, its hard to imagine one of them getting emptied in the first place.

When Shorey told those who have the means to buy 100 buckets of food to buy 100 buckets of food and give them to local churches, Bakker chimed in to urge millionaires to buy as much food as they can afford.

Do a million dollars worth of food, Im serious, Bakker said. If theyre rich, their money is going [away] anyway, John. Its not going to be worth anything. The crash is coming, so why not sow it into the Lord?

Shorey agreed, adding that those who dont use all their money to buy as much food as they can will have to answer to God.

Right, money is going to be absolutely useless, so why in the name of your psychogod arent you giving the stuff away? Wouldnt that be the godly thing to do? Oh, theres a tonne of irony comin up, folks

The Bible says that our riches will be a witness against us, Shorey said. When the time comes that youve left money in the bank that could have been used to help people, to help feed people and all you did is you just kept all your riches for yourself, it will be a witness against you. You will stand before God and he will say, Why didnt you do more to help the needy?

:head goes bang bang bang on the desk: Right. Lets see your bank books, boys. Then well talk.

The Parsons Green bombing 1 week later: What do we now know? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Although no one was killed in the blast, 30 commuters were injured when an improvised explosive device (IED), planted towards the rear of a District Line train, partially detonated during morning rush hour. The official terrorism threat level in the UK has returned to 'severe', meaning an attack is highly likely, but no longer imminent, having been raised to 'critical' in the aftermath of the blast. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the bombing via its Amaq news agency. As Londoners try to return to life as normal, RT sums up everything we know so far about the attack and the ongoing police investigation.

Sydney, Australia: Report-Back from the Straight Lives Matter Counter-Demo "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"


23.09.17: We had many more people, we sang and we danced and we laughed and we loved but most of all we told the fascists to get the fuck out. We did not let them anywhere near the Queer holocaust remembrance memorial and we created great bonds of solidarity and friendship. There were some young Queer people who came, and it was their first rally an they said it was a fantastic experience.

For all of the liberal wah-wah about how we would destabalise the marriage equality debate, weve actually done nothing of the sort. Instead we have continued the spirit of queer resistance and we have given the next generation their first taste of the struggle.

Today was a big positive for anti-fascists, however it would be wrong of us not to mention the role of the Liberal Party in laying the groundworks for the Party for Freedom hate rally today. This is all a direct consequence of their stupid fucking plebiscite.

"My daughter doesn't need my permission to get married. But she needs yours." "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

The Daily Examiner, Letter to the Editor, 15 September 2017:

Marriage certification

Those of us who thought, like the old song, that love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage have had a lot of confusing information thrown at us recently about same-sex couples and the way their non-marriages give them all the same rights as married people. My wife and I were surprised, therefore, to attend the Roads and Maritime Service Centre last week to change our car registration, where we were asked to produce our marriage certificate.

This led me to wonder what other equal rights might not be there, particularly when my daughter, currently unable to marry her long-time partner, gets to our age.

Will she be asked for a marriage certificate if her not legally recognised wife is in hospital, or worse? Australia Post apparently charges hundreds of dollars for a name change, but not if you can provide a you guessed it marriage certificate.

Those who oppose same sex marriage are resting their hopes on the oldies like me.

But if you think we are going to support discrimination against our own kids and grandkids, you are about to be very disappointed.

My daughter doesnt need my permission to get married. But she needs yours. Please join me in voting YES.



Exit From The Dark Trap (Jon video included) "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

by Jon Rappoport

September 23, 2017

You can watch me talk about my collection, Exit From The Matrix, here:

In the long run, most Western and Eastern traditional metaphysics turn out to be a distraction away from The Individual. (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

The night is long, and the search is weird. Clues appear, and yet they unendingly point to other cluesand what is the real shape of the expedition? Is it a trap? Do the markers on the road produce nothing more than a closed circle?

The Outsider is an individual who looks at the complexity of events in todays world, as he decides WHAT TO DO.

These events can seem to form a labyrinth. Theyre connected in ways that bind them to each other. One path leads to another, and eventually, the individual finds himself back where he startedbut not before going on a long strange trip in the maze.

During that trip, he loses contact with his own deep desires, because is fascinated and exhausted by the details of the labyrinth.

An apt analogy would be a treasure map. It promises victory and triumph, but as the seeker follows the thread, he enters a realm of cognitive dissonance, a dance in which he seems to be coming closer and yet moving further from the ultimate prize.

Authors and researchers have offered their interpretations of the nature of the trip: there are false trails; the mystery of life will always remain a mystery; the invisible rulers know how to hide themselves from the seeker

Leaving these conclusions aside, I find that the individuals true desire can be summarized in the question: WHAT DO I WANT TO CREATE?

Answering that question, and acting on the answer with full commitment, energy, determination, and power eventually, casts a bright light on the maze and reveals its patterns and its tricks.

In other words, there is a foundation from which the individual can launch his future, and that foundation is within his graspas Ive just indicated.

Moving out from that platform, he gains new perspective. He sees the world in a new way. He stays outside the labyrinth, and he is able to act on it.

Otherwise, he sinks into it.

What Im talking about here is more than advice. Its a different slant on metaphysics. Traditionally, metaphysics concocts a picture of Reality in an ultimate formand a cursory scan of Western philosophy reveals that every philosopher paints a...


Sen. McCain praised by liberals over health care bill opposition "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

The liberal establishment, with help from Hollywood, is showering turncoat Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) with praise after his stunning announcement that he would once again go directly against his own campaign promise and oppose the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill.

McCain made the announcement in a statement Friday, saying that he could not in good conscience vote for the repeal of a law that he ran against during his last campaign.

I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried, McCain declared.

Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will effect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it, his statement continued. Without a full CBO score, which wont be available by the end of the month, we wont have reliable answers to any of those questions.

After the announcement the liberal media immediately went to work praising the senator, with multiple news outlets spending considerable time painting McCain as some sort of hero standing up to the forces of Trump when in reality he is nothing more than an establishment puppet working for the very same masters who control the mainstream press.

Unsurprisingly, numerous Hollywood celebrities also chimed in with praise for McCain throughout Twitter, with multiple openly anti-Trump Democrats responding joyfully to the senator once again turning on not only his party, but the people who voted for him in the first place.

Mining company Santos has plans for a massive coal seam gas mining operation near Narrabri in the north-west of NSW.  In its Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which was put on public exhibition earlier this year, Santos outlined its proposal for 850 gas wells on agricultural land and in the Pilliga Forest (which is crown land).  Almost 23,000 submissions were received by the NSW Department of Planning on the EIS, the largest response ever to a planning proposal in NSW.  Apparently around 18,000 of these were opposed to the development.

The Government is yet to make a decision on whether the project will go ahead.

Santos has been operating a pilot project in the area since 2011 when it took over from Eastern Star.  

There has been considerable infrastructure development already in the area - e.g. test wells, flares, a produced water recycling plant and large holding ponds for produced water.

The Clarence Valley Conservation Coalition made a submission opposing the proposal.  Two of the matters of concern from that submission are in this post.  The other  matters of concern will be in a later post.

Control 101: Creating Consensus Reality "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"


By carefully controlling mainstream media and educational institutions, elite social engineers are able to control the flow of public discourse in order to serve their own goals and interests. By doing this, they create something akin to consensus reality. In other words, by controlling the perception of public consensus on any particular issue or event, you effectively control the prevailing reality.

A leading example of this social engineering phenomenon today is in the relentless promotion of war and global conflict throughout the media and education systems. Their carefully coordinated efforts can be boiled down to a simple concept: establishing legitimation and delegitimation in relation to the state or state institutions.

In todays formative education, school textbooks and assigned reading material are powerful tools used to shape students views. Often what is imprinted in ones memory is not particular details and facts but rather an atmosphere, an impression, or a tone.1 It can be argued this impression may be more influential in forming a pupils contextual world or nationalist view.

Professor of Education Dr. Michael H. Romanowski, explains: The authority of textbooks coupled with the objectivity of the technical knowledge that they communicate encourages students to accept unquestionably the impressions and worldview created by the language of textbooks.

Although textbooks claim rhetorically not to promote a particular understanding of history and to be objective, they advance a value-laden perspective of reality. Because the selection and structure of knowledge affect our perception of the world, the language and context used to articulate knowledge are crucial. Textbook authors select particular language that creates impressions in the minds of students. These impressions have power and authority because they are presented in the printed and bound textbook with its aura of an authority that is beyond question and criticism. Although textbooks are used in many different ways, they are still dominant and powerful educational tools that shape students views.

In his study Romanowski goes on to describe how through the careful use of language, US school textbooks depicted Japanese internment camps in the United States during World War II in a manner that marginalised Japanese-Americans, while subtly mitigating any real criticism of the...

Herpes: Its Time To Put the Stigma to Bed "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Hey mates, Im a 22-year-old woman living in Australia. I am a student, I work, I explore, I see live music and go to art shows. I have hobbies and interests, I take photographs, I draw, I write, I live with a bunch of amazing people in a beautiful sharehouse in Sydney, and I have sex. I have a lot of sex.

But heres my conundrum: I also have Herpes. The strain is HSV-1, which most commonly appears as cold sores, but, lucky me, the outbreaks happen in my sweet lil nether-regions.

I have told most of my sexual partners, but Ive also left it out of the conversation for others. This wasnt some vindictive plot to spread the infection to everyone in the entire world, and it wasnt because I was ignorant about the topic it was just something that happened sometimes for one of the following reasons:

  1. We used a condom; I hadnt had an outbreak in months.
  2. We were both plastered.
  3. The dont ask/dont tell unspoken policy between dead-end flings.
  4. I was fucking scared, and never saw them again.

To me, these are just general life occurrences that happen to most sexually-active people from the age of like, 14 until you die. So for anyone sitting on their moral high-horse right now thinking, Fuck this bitch she needs to stop being so selfish and be a decent, honest human being, please try to dismount and listen for the next few hundred words.

The last two of my reasons are the most problematic to the spread of what is a very common STI, and I would like to change that. In order for this to happen, we young people need to be informed of the facts surrounding Herpes. Im one of those idealists who actually believes the stigma surrounding this issue can be changed with honest chit-chat amongst lovers, and after that, the media will eventually follow suit.

So how did I get Herpes in the first place?

A few years back, I was dating a dude I was madly in love with, and I just got an itch and a bit of a red uss. It was only a mild inconvenience at the time, kind of like the symptoms you get with thrush. When they didnt clear up after using thrush treatment, I decided to go to the doctor. It was only once I was in the doctors office that I realised it could be an STI.

I was told that if I had any red bumps, lumps, lesions or sores, then there was a strong likelihood I had Herpes. Old mate...


Globalist Puppet John McCain Showered With Praise By Liberal Establishment and Hollywood Over Health Care Bill Opposition "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"


The liberal establishment, with help from Hollywood, is showering turncoat Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) with praise after his stunning announcement that he would once again go directly against his own campaign promise and oppose the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill.

McCain made the announcement in a statement Friday, saying that he could not in good conscience vote for the repeal of a law that he ran against during his last campaign.

I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried, McCain declared.

Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will effect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it, his statement continued. Without a full CBO score, which wont be available by the end of the month, we wont have reliable answers to any of those questions.

After the announcement the liberal media immediately went to work praising the senator, with multiple news outlets spending considerable time painting McCain as some sort of hero standing up to the forces of Trump when in reality he is nothing more than an establishment puppet working for the very same masters who control the mainstream press.

Unsurprisingly, numerous Hollywood celebrities also chimed in with praise for McCain throughout Twitter, with multiple openly anti-Trump Democrats responding joyfully to the senator once again turning on not only his party, but the people who voted for him in the first place.

4 Secrets That A Narcissist Will Use to Control You "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

In modern society today there are a lot of people who arent as nice as they make themselves out to be. You have to extra careful these days, because it can be very easy to get taken advantage of.

I dont know whether the world has always been this way, or if it is a new trait of a new generation, but we have become a society full of narcissists. They are literally everywhere and people are stabbing each other in the back left and right. Nobody has respect for other people and they dont think about anyone else but themselves. Sound familiar? It probably does, because chances are youve already dealt with a narcissist. I know I have and it is no fun.

A narcissist is someone who is purely concerned with only themselves. They think they are the best at everything and they will not take no for an answer. Most importantly, a narcissistic person will take advantage of whoever they have to gain whatever they seek, and its usually attention.

There are many different ways to tell if youre dealing with a narcissist, but in my opinion its the people who make you feel like you cant break your back enough to please them. While there are many specific methods of dealing with these types of people, the best approach in any battle is still knowing the tactics of the enemy and these are the best kept secrets of a narcissist. They use these four tactics to control you.

1. Theyll Never Show Appreciation

A narcissistic person will almost never show gratitude for anything that you do, and if they do its very little. This is a tactic they use to control you because it subconsciously makes you want to do more to please them. This automatically instills them as a number one priority in your brain.

2. They Reel You In

You might think that a narcissist doesnt have good people skills, but youd be wrong. Narcissistic people are the best at reading people and really getting to know you from the inside out. They are able to detect vulnerability and loneliness in others. They target individuals who are more vulnerable because they are more easily manipulated. They use your biggest weaknesses against you.

3. They Isolate...


This Undergraduate From Iceland May Have Just Saved the Planet "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

While people claim plastic is fine because it is recyclable, most people dont bother to recycle! Did you know that it takes plastic around 450 years to decompose. New ways to resolve our plastic problem are constantly being created and yet we are not using any of them, why is that?

Last year a a product design student named Ari Jonsson presented a new biodegradable bottle design at a festival that should have been a game changer. This water bottle was to be completely created from red algae powder. Jonsson decided to come up with this idea after reading about the tons of plastic waste humans were producing.

Why are we using materials that take hundreds of years to break down in nature to drink from once and then throw away?

For this, he began studying the strengths and weaknesses of different substances, and finally decided that making plastic from algae was the answer. You see, this is something that can be formed into a bottle by merely adding water, heat and placing it into a mold that will be frozen. Once the bottle is emptied it loses its shape and begins decomposing, you really couldnt ask for much better.

Jonsson says you could even eat the bottle when you were done if you wanted to. His design makes bottles waste free and practical to say the least. Maybe in time, this sort of thing will be used globally. For more information check out the video below and take a look at the images of his bottle from beginning to end or drinking to decomposing. What do you think about this?




The Weekend Quiz September 23-24, 2017 answers and discussion "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Here are the answers with discussion for this Weekends Quiz. The information provided should help you work out why you missed a question or three! If you havent already done the Quiz from yesterday then have a go at it before you read the answers. I hope this helps you develop an understanding of modern monetary theory (MMT) and its application to macroeconomic thinking. Comments as usual welcome, especially if I have made an error.

Question 1:

If the inflation rate is steady and the central bank maintains a constant nominal interest rate, then the public debt ratio will rise if the government deficit doubles (say, from 2 to 4 per cent of GDP) although Modern Monetary Theory would not place any special importance in that increase.

The answer is False.

First, the statement although Modern Monetary Theory would not place any special importance in that increase is true but is a throwaway in the context of the issue whether the public debt ration rises when the primary deficit rises with a real interest rate constant.

The substantive part of the question requires a careful reading and a careful association of concepts to make sure they are commensurate. There are two concepts that are central to the question: (a) a rising fiscal deficit which is a flow and not scaled by GDP in this case; and (b) a rising public debt ratio which by construction (as a ratio) is scaled by GDP.

So the two concepts are not commensurate although they are related in some way.

A rising fiscal deficit does not necessary lead to a rising public debt ratio. You might like to refresh your understanding of these concepts by reading this blog Saturday Quiz March 6, 2010 answers and discussion.

While the mainstream macroeconomics thinks that a sovereign government is revenue-constrained and is subject to the government fiscal constraint, MMT places no particular importance in the public debt to GDP ratio for a sovereign government, given that insolvency is not an issue.

The mainstream framework for analysing the so-called financing choices faced by a government (taxation, debt-issuance, money creation) the government fiscal constraint is written as:

Ask A Sithrak Worshipper: Sept 23, The World Ends "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Is Sithrak planning to end the world on Sept 23? [express]


Sithrak is going to fuck everyone up when they die, so it makes no difference whether they die now, or later. It makes no difference whether they die in the flames of Planet X slamming into Earths atmosphere, if they choke to death on a chicken bone, or if they die of boredom watching re-runs of Friends in their favorite chair.

How the christians think it will end

Creating an entire extra planet to smack into Earth is way too much effort for Sithrak.

The christian god is a great big megalomaniacal asshole, over the top and full of hate for everybeing thats not like him. But being full of hate requires caring way too much.

Sithrak is the low-energy god, wholl get you when you die and not a moment sooner. He doesnt care. If you are reading this after the 24th, you can rest comfortably knowing the christian god is probably not real, and that Sithrak still hates you anyway.

PS we couldnt decide whether to post this just before the day the christians think it will all and, or just after so we could laugh at them. But we try to be like Sithrak; either way, it doesnt matter.

I see that other FTBloggers have tried their miserable best to answer this question, already. I decided to delay posting this until the very last minute on the 22nd so that, in your desperate, fearful moments before midnight, you can learn the truth. Or, if Im wrong and the world ends, you wont have time to post comments saying Im wrong.

Warangesda closes this weekend "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

The exhibition is open a few more days at the Narrandera Arts Centre.

Warangesda details the history of the Mission at Darlington Point with responses from local artists, including AMS Woman Groups artwork Murrumbidgee Yellow Belly, Treahna Hamms Murrumbidgee Yabby and Rodney Simpsons Greed all shown and all created this year for the exhibition.

This Mission was significant for maintaining Wiradjuri in the region, first as a Christian mission and then an Aboriginal station:

The historic Aboriginal occupation of Warangesda was characterised by a relatively self sufficient Aboriginal community that participated in the economic maintenance of the wider community by the provision of labour to local agriculture. The people also maintained a culturally distinct Aboriginal lifestyle firmly based on the maintenance of family connections over the wider region.
Warangesda is rare in that it is one of only 10 missions established in NSW. It is unique in NSW, as it is the only mission or reserve site in NSW to retain a suite of original 19th century building ruins and archaeological relics.
The place is significant for its association with the last great inter-group burbung (initiation) in Wiradjuri country which was held at or near Warangesda in the 1870s. 

Peter Kabaila is a historian who's written on this area in various publications and has provided the text for the informative panels. His honours thesis was an archeological survey of the Mission site and many of the artifacts he found are now in the collection at Griffith Pioneer Park Museum.

In which the pond double dates with Dame Slap and Bret Stephens ... "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Whenever climate denialists gather together for a gaggle and a giggle, the pond likes to begin proceedings with a reading from the holy works of Dame Slap ...

...Emails started arriving telling me about a speech given by Christopher Monckton, a former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, at Bethel University in St Paul, Minnesota, on October 14. Monckton talked about something that no one has talked about in the lead-up to Copenhagen: the text of the draft Copenhagen treaty. Even after Moncktons speech, most of the media has duly ignored the substance of what he said. You dont need me to find his St Paul address on YouTube. 
Interviewed on Monday morning by Alan Jones on Sydney radio station 2GB, Monckton warned that the aim of the Copenhagen draft treaty was to set up a transnational government on a scale the world has never before seen. 
Listening to the interview, my teenage daughters asked me whether this was true. So I read the draft treaty. The word government appears on page 18. Monckton says: This is the first time Ive ever seen any transnational treaty referring to a new body to be set up under that treaty as a government. But its the powers that are going to be given to this entirely unelected government that are so frightening. ... Monckton became aware of the extraordinary powers to be vested in this new world government only when a friend of his found an obscure UN website and hacked his way through several layers of complications before coming across a document that isnt even called the draft treaty. Its called a note by the secretariat. 
The moment he saw it, he went public and said: Look, this is an outrage ... they have kept the sheer scope of this treaty quiet. Monckton says the aim of this new government is to have power to directly intervene in the financial, economic, tax and environmental affairs of all the nations that sign the Copenhagen treaty.

The pond's not sure why lawyers and paranoia fit so well together, but for those who like to Greg Hunt, here's Dame Slap's qualifications as a climate scientist ...

Mom is too Scared to Open Front Door, Then Checks Security Camera "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

[BannedInfo] We all warn our children to never open the front door for strangers, especially when they are home alone.

Its a scary, but true, fact that danger often shows up right at our front door. One adult decided to follow the same rule for herself that she had set for her children. Melissa Vang made the decision to not open her front door when she checked to see who was ringing the doorbell and didnt recognize the young man who was standing there.

There are tons of stories that support Vangs apprehension of opening the front door for strangers. Unfortunately, not everyone has good intentions when they come knocking on strangers doors. This was not the case for Vang.

When Vang heard someone knocking on her front door she was home with her two young children. She decided against opening it. The security camera at her front door would capture footage of whoever was knocking, so she knew she could just check the footage after the stranger left. What she saw on the security footage was not what she expected at all.

She was touched to see that the stranger knocking on her door was a teenage boy who definitely wasnt trying to start any trouble. The young man, Tyler Opdyke, was actually doing the right thing, which is unusual in this day and age. His integrity showed through in that security camera footage. He actually looked for a camera on the exterior of the home and seemed relieved when he spotted one.

Opdyke was seen waving something at the camera, which was actually something that Vang was very happy to see. Vangs husband had lost his wallet on the driveway while getting into his car, and Opdyke had picked it up. He showed the money in the wallet to the camera and turned the wallet so the entire thing could be seen. He then left the camera at the door for the homeowner to find.

You can see the footage below:

The young man was in Vangs neighborhood to pass out flyers to promote his uncles pest control business. When he spotted the wallet with $1,500 cash in it along with numerous credit cards, he knew he had to do something. Vangs husband had so much cash in his wallet because he had been collecting cash for an event.

Opdyke explained that he had heard the children inside the home, but when no one answered he decided to show the wallet to the camera to let the homeowner know the real reason why he was knocking. He then placed it on the door mat. When interviewed by KXTV Opdyke explained, Ive been raised in the Church all my life and I just felt this is not mine.

Vang actually tracked Opdyke down in order to reward him for his kind....


Thank Your Lucky Southern Cross "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Dear Reader,

There are many remarkable insights in Jim Rickards book The New Case for Gold.

This bonus chapter will turn them into specific, useful and potentially profitable advice for you as an Australian.

As youll discover, Australians are uniquely poised to benefit from Jims analysis to a far greater extent than anyone else in the world.

You dont have to finish the book before you start reading this bonus chapter. They certainly complement each other though. You can think of this as the local guide to Jims ideas and analysis.

There are two reasons Ive come onboard with Strategic Intelligence. The first is Jim Rickards. Nobody in the newsletter industry has his insight, contacts and experience. Nobody.

A few years ago I sat opposite Jim at a dinner. It was after a conference we both spoke at in Sydney. Hes exactly the same guy behind the scenes as on stage. He just gives a little more away when he is off the record. Because hes the same person behind the scenes, I think hes genuine. Im willing to put my reputation on the line alongside his. I trust him.

The other reason Ive come onboard with Strategic Intelligence is gold. Jim Rickards is a long-time fan of gold. He thinks you should own it and governments should peg their currencies to it.

As he puts it in his book:

Gold is money, monetary standards based on gold are possible, even desirable, and that in the absence of a gold standard, individuals should go on a personal gold standard, by buying gold, to preserve wealth.

But its not gold by itself thats so enticing. Aussie gold investors are better placed than literally anyone globally to invest in gold. Theres a simple reason for this our currency.

The Aussie Case for Gold

Australia is a highly developed country. But our economy is built on commodities. And commodities are risky bets. They fluctuate heavily in price. Put the two together and youll understand why our currency has big swings too.

Our currency is whats known as a risk on bet. We do well in the world economys good times, and our currency goes up in value. We do badly during poor times, and our currency falls fast.

This currency instability, combined with Australias legal and political stability, means Aussie investors are best placed globally to benefit from owning gold.

Why? Gold is priced in US dollars. The Aussie gold price is the US dollar gold price, adjusted for the exchange rate to Aussie dollars. This creates a uniquely benefic...


Cop Becomes Foster Dad To Cat Who Jumped In His Police Car "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

A wayward cat found just the person to get him the help he needed (and he wasn't about to take "no" for an answer).

Officer Rick Butler, of Ohio's Oxford Police, had been out on patrol early Friday morning when he happened upon the random feline by no choice of his own. While the officer was stopping to check on a local church, the brazen orange cat reportedly leapt through the cruiser's open window. He then proceeded to demand attention and pets.

Butler, of course, was happy to oblige.

Butler might have thought it would be just a momentary encounter, but the cat evidently had something else in mind. Rather than slink away, having had his fill of the officer's affection, the kitty then staged a sit-in.

"[He's] super friendly and loving and now refusing to leave the police car!" the department reported.

Was the cat being stubborn? Maybe. Did it pay off? Yes, yes it did.

Thoroughly disarmed by the charming cat,  Butler didn't have the heart to turn the little guy away so he let him stay. The police station doesn't have facilities to house cats, so as the department announced online, Butler has decided to become his foster dad, at least until the cat's rightful owner is found or someone comes forward wanting to adopt him.

Hillary Clinton fresh out of appeal to progressives "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Salon magazine suggested Wednesday that Hillary Clinton just isn't appealing - even to liberals. Liberal writer Conor Lynch describes the phenomenon as "the progressive animus towards Clinton." He notes a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that shows 53 percent of respondents have a negative or very negative perception of Hillary, leading to the conclusion that the failed presidential candidate "seems to be getting even less popular as the 2016 election recedes further into the past." Clinton ponders the question of her obtruding unpopularity in her new book, What Happened, asking "What makes me such a lightning rod for fury? I'm really asking. I'm at a loss." The answer, Salon suggests, is "that Clinton was often her own worst enemy in 2016, and frequently provided her opponents with ammunition to torpedo her campaign." Lynch says Clinton ultimately failed to address her most stinging criticism by primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders, and was believed by progressives to be just another Washington insider. The Salon writer states, "They essentially saw her as a standard Beltway politician - no better and no worse than other politicians who court big donors at cocktail parties in Washington and Manhattan and Beverly Hills."


From Pitt to Georgia Tech: Cops Off Campus! "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

The post From Pitt to Georgia Tech: Cops Off Campus! appeared first on It's Going Down.

On Wednesday morning, we dropped two banners at the University of Pittsburgh. They read, From Pitt to Georgia Tech: Disarm the Police, Arm Your Desire and Solidarity with St. Louis and Atlanta: Fuck the Police. The first was hung from student dorms, the second from condemned housing near campus we hope the symbolism is clear. Later that night, after campus police arrested a student protester during coordinated disruptions of a right wing debate on immigration, we linked up with two other crews to beautify campus with chalk and flyers [just a heads up, the link is from a right-wing student news site, and its kinda hilarious]. Another crew from the autonomous student network tells us they also tagged and wheatpasted the Oakland area on Tuesday night.


We are deeply saddened and angered by the murder of comrade Scout Schultz by Georgia Tech campus police. As a small crew of radical queer youth and accomplices, we recognize that Scout could have been any one of us. We too struggle daily with and against our mental health; we take these actions as part of that struggle. We will continue to answer the calls to fight in Scouts memory [1234], one of which reads:

To anyone who is enraged, grieving, or who stands against the police and the murderous system they protect, we call for actions in solidarity with our fight here in Atlanta. To anyone who is fighting for liberation: in the coming days, fight with Scouts name on your lips, on your banners, and in your hearts.

The Blunt Truth About Each Personality Type, and the Way that Others Perceive You "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures.- Scott Fitzgerald

 Throughout the generations, experts have worked to better understand the concept of personality, where it originates and how it impacts our decisions in life. Many have developed their own analysis and understanding of this phenomenon, each building upon the knowledge and expertise of those who came before them.

Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud was one such expert, focusing a significant period of his career on the concept of personality development. He believed that our personalities were a response to the childhood events that we had experienced, and created labels for a number of different personality types that he had identified including oral and anally retentive.

In the 1970s two research teams led by Paul Costa and Robert R. McCrae of the National Institutes of Health, and Warren Norman and Lewis Goldberg of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and the University of Oregon teamed up to discover The Big Five. This refers to the five dimensions that they believe describe most human character traits including extroversion, openness, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and neuroticism.

In his book Personality: a Psychological Interpretation, Gordon Willard Allport defines personality as the dynamic organization within the individual of those psychophysical systems that determine his characteristic behavior and thought.

Todays concept of psychology involves far more terms, theories, and concepts than ever before. As interest has grown in the general public about these various labels, the prevalence of trivia and online tests claiming to provide answers has multiplied, providing answers to anyone who seeks it. Some of these quizzes are specific, discussing personality in relation to our career choices, or the relationships we seek. They are fun and whimsical ways of viewing an otherwise complicated and in-depth conversation.

Here are some very blunt, very honest descriptions of a number of the most common personality types, and an inside look at how others view you:




Messages of the Spirit: Why Signs and Omens Are So Important "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

It is your omen, only you know the meaning. To me, it is but another star in the night.

  • Gerald R. Stanek, The Eighth House

 Signs and omens have played an incredibly important role throughout history, revered by our ancestors for their ability to predict the future, warn them about difficult times to come and guide them through life as they knew it.

The first written references to signs and omens date back to approximately the third millennium B.C. The presence of these messages has been documented throughout the ancient world, in the historical documents of the ancient Mesopotamian civilizations, Rome and even India. Amar Annus, a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Oriental Institute explains, The concept of sign is found in all ancient cultures, but was first described in ancient Mesopotamian texts. This branch of Babylonian scientific knowledge had great influence, as witnessed by similar texts written in the Aramaic, Sanskrit and Sogdian, among other languages.

In a world that has become dark and frightening, plagued with wars, increased rates of crime and a general disregard for the well-being of others around us, one has to wonder whether we need these messages more today than ever. This may be the time that we need to work to better connect, opening ourselves to these important messages from the Universe.

What is the difference between a sign and an omen?

The terms sign and omen are often used interchangeably today. While both are messages from the Universe, each carries its own purpose in our lives.

Signs appear specifically in our life when we are requesting that the Universe provide us with guidance or an answer while attempting to make a significant decision in our lives. This request isnt necessarily a verbal request; however, it can come in a deeper and more spiritual way as we allow our soul to call out for assistance from our spiritual guardians. It will only come to us when requested, and we will cease to see the sign once the decision has been made.

An Omen, on the other hand, can appear at any time without any prior request or search for guidance. These occur when our spiritual guardians feel the need to reach out to us about something that is coming. They may be ominous, outlandish, mysterious, wondrous or bizarre, each individual and different, however, each carrying an important message that the Universe wants us to hear.

Contrary to popular belief among certain YouTubers, Im a social justice warrior who actually loves free speech. In fact, the main reason I write is to use my free speech rights to challenge peoples preconceived notions about gender and sexuality and create conversations about complex social justice issues. One of my favorite philosophers, John Stuart Mill, summarizes it best in his 1859 classic essay On Liberty:

But the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is that it is robbing the human race, posterity as well as the existing generation, those who dissent from the opinion still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth; if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.

Of course this opens up a wide variety of questions regarding free speech in the 21st century: Is it censorship when a private organization disinvites a controversial speaker? Would racist slogans like Blood and soil be considered hate speech that directly leads to violence? Unfortunately, I dont have the time to answer all these questions right now. I do, however, want to point out a disturbing trend I see:

Those who advocate for free speech the most vocally tend to be silent when marginalized people are censored.

Did They Do It On Purpose? New Southpark Episode Triggers Amazon Alexa and Google Home Devices "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

The episode, titled White People Renovating Houses, apparently drove Amazon Alexa and Google Home totally nuts, leaving many wondering if creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker did it on purpose. The likely answer given their history of tackling contemporary issues is yes.

We have an Amazon Alexa and a Google Home and South Park repeatedly screwed with both of them tonight, noted one Twitter user

Tillerson Addresses North Koreas Latest Weapons Test Threat "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

[NY Daily] Secretary of State Rex Tillerson declined to say how exactly the U.S. might act if North Korea drops a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific.

We will continue our efforts in the diplomatic arena, but all our military options are on the table, Tillerson said during a Friday appearance on Good Morning America. Once we can assess the nature of this threat, the President will make a decision regarding the appropriate actions.

The top diplomats remarks came less than an hour after President Trump heightened the war of words with North Korea.

Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesnt mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before! Trump tweeted.

The North Korean strongman on Thursday night threatened to carry out another weapons test this time possibly over the Pacific and called the President mentally deranged. Trump vowed this week to totally destroy the nation if North Koreas tests continued, referring to Kim as Rocket Man.

Tillerson, during his GMA appearance, didnt give a direct answer when asked if Trumps tough talk against the hermetic country worked.

The President takes the responsibility of the security of the American people very seriously and it is his first and foremost responsibility but were not in this alone, he said, noting that China and Russia have also put pressure on North Korea.

Trump hit Pyongyang with its latest economic blow on Thursday when he signed an order directed at entities that work with North Korea.

Our new executive order will cut off sources of revenue that fund North Koreas efforts to develop the deadliest weapons known to humankind, Trump said.



The Common Roots of Anxiety and Addiction "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Have you ever stopped to think about life from a perspective other than your own? Do you ever slow down and notice all the small things that make this world worth living in?

We spend our whole lives searching for something or someone to make us happy but is that what we really need? As human beings, I have noticed we are all addicted to something whether it is soda, junk food, alcohol, or anything else. We all have a crutch of some kind.

Why is this? Why do we allow ourselves to remain addicted to these things that are doing nothing good for us? What are we trying to cure ourselves of? What are we trying to hide?

As children, we seek gratification in all that we do but why? Why cant we just be happy? Is there no cure for the things that bring us down? Can we not work through our boredom, depression, anxiety and so forth?

Why do we experience all of these negative things in life? Why is it some people do and some people dont? Why are there so many questions that go unanswered?

I learned at a young age that feeling happy comes at the most unexpected times. In my opinion, the cure for all that makes us sick or brings us down is quite simple. Getting rid of all of these addictions and being in nature, and finally allowing our stress to drain away. While to most this will seem unrealistic or even stupid, it has worked wonders for me.

You see, we only fall into a routine of damage if we do not allow ourselves time to be disconnected when we can. Our dependencies and addictions are preventing us from overcoming things like anxiety and so forth. Addiction only feeds into the instability.

While my answers may seem a bit too open, maybe they helped you to see things a bit more clearly. Personal growth is important and overmedicating is not the answer. For more on this check out the videos below. If anything maybe they will help you to see things from a different perspective.
