Toxic Rain - The Legacy of Agent Orange in Vietnam.

There is still ~100,000 babies a year born in Vietnam with genetic defects caused by the dioxin in agent orange. The tragedy is that the dioxin could have been removed from the herbicide but this would have lowered the profits for Monsanto and Dow.

An under reported situation is that the people on Okinawa are suffering from dioxin the US military sprayed there.

The affects are still being felt in Australia and New Zealand.

Chemical weapons expert says nerve agent used to poison Russian spy could not have been smuggled in his daughter's bag as it would have ‘killed hundreds on the plane’

The poisoning happened a few miles from the government's research laboratory at Porton Down, he said.

'Seventeen years ago in the same small town of Salisbury, where Skripal was poisoned, under mysterious circumstances, another Russian defector, biologist Vladimir Pasechnik was killed,' he said.

'The deaths of local, British scientists are taking place there with a frightening frequency.'

He did not give examples but tarred Skripal with smuggling chemical weapons.

'Perhaps he needed money, and given his past in the secret services, he somehow participated in the smuggling of chemical weapons?

'This version cannot be excluded. At the very least, it explains why traces of the warfare agent were found not only in the restaurant, but also at Skripal's house, on his things.'

Trump says the Mueller probe should NEVER have started and is a 'Witch hunt' hours after his lawyer backtracked on calls to END the investigation

President Donald Trump has again repudiated Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between his campaign and Russia, calling it a 'Witch hunt' that never should have started in the first place.

'The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime,' Trump tweeted on Saturday night.

'It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!' he continued.

Earlier in the day, Trump's lawyer backtracked on an earlier demand for the deputy attorney general to shut down the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the elections.

NASA's Kepler Space Telescope only has a few months left to live: Agency says the planet-hunting spacecraft is running out of fuel after nine years in space

After almost a decade in flight, NASA's Kepler Space Telescope is reaching the end of its useful life.

NASA announced on Wednesday that the space craft only has a few months left before it 'dies,' as it will soon run out of fuel.

Kepler doesn't have a gas gauge, but estimates show that it is approaching dangerously low levels of fuel.

The terrifying bug that could allow hackers to access your MacBook WITHOUT a password

Google Chrome Remote Desktop allows users to access their desktop via another computer or smartphone.

If the Mac has guest access enabled, then this can provide a back-door to get hold of password-protected information.

CPR's analyst noticed that by signing in as a guest user, hackers can jump into other sessions, including those started by an administrator account.

For it to work, guest access must be enabled on Mac by the main account holder – the feature is not switched on by default.

A step towards limitless energy? Scientists zap tiny wires with lasers to create mini-nuclear fusion reactions at record efficiency

Researchers from Colorado State University's (CSU) Advanced Beam Laboratory used a compact but powerful laser they built from scratch to heat tiny, invisible wires, known as nanowires.

These contained a source of deuterium, one of two stable isotopes of hydrogen and a common source of fuel for nuclear fusion reactions.

The experiment resulted in a chain reaction of fusion events, which created a hot and dense plasma containing helium and highly energetic neutrons.

Driverless cars could be stopped in their tracks by solar storms, experts say

Scientists say driverless cars, if designed in a way that’s too reliant on GPS, may suffer complications during powerful space weather events, making it difficult to carry out their functions as intended.

According to Scott McIntosh, director of the high-altitude observatory at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, engineers must prepare driverless cars for changes in solar activity.

If they’re too reliant on GPS to get to their destinations, they’ll be unable to do so if a solar storm disrupts the connection, causing them to all have to pull over and wait it out, the expert told Bloomberg.

Magnetic particles from coronal holes could also cause disruptions.

Maxine Waters: The Ultimate "low IQ" Collection

"Marxist Maxine Waters' district in California is not only the worst place to live in America, she has been voted the 'most corrupt politician' 4 seperate times. In nearly 30 years as an elected official, she has only had her name attached to 3 bills that passed and ultimately became law. Thats a lousy 1 bill per decade."

'The American people will judge who is honorable and who is not': James Comey hits out at Trump just one day after the former FBI Director's No. 2, Andrew McCabe, was fired

Comey tweeted Saturday: 'Mr. President, the American people will hear my story very soon. And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not.'

Brennan posted an angry tweet on Saturday in response to Trump’s tweet hours earlier celebrating Sessions' decision to fire McCabe.

'When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history,' Brennan tweeted early Saturday.

'You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you.'

Is America another word for "Deep State"?

UK forced to pay for further F35 upgrades THREE YEARS after ordering new stealth jets

BRITAIN will likely be forced to stump up part of an estimated £12billion ($16bn) bill to upgrade its latest F-35 warplanes with new software.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has placed orders for 48 the F-35 Lightning IIs at an estimated cost of around £90million ($123m) each.

Although 14 of this initial order have been built by American aerospace giant Lockheed Martin, the planes are still sat in the United States and are awaiting software upgrades which the MoD says will ensure they "remain at the cutting-edge of technology".

Trump trade war SPIRALS: EU ready to PUNISH 200 brands as US threatened with tech tax

DONALD Trump has lashed out at European Union proposals to target US tech giants such as Google, Facebook and Apple with a digital tax in a bid to clamp down on avoidance as tensions over a potential trade war threaten to boil over.

Relations between Brussels and the White House have become strained over a raft of different issues ranging from proposed steel and aluminium tariffs to data protections and disagreement over the Iran nuclear deal.

Washington has been enraged by the European Commission’s publication of a draft list of US imports to be targeted for retaliatory tariffs, including Jack Daniels whisky and Harley Davidson motorbikes.

And a draft proposal suggesting the new “tech tax” would hit companies with an annual global turnover of more than €750m and total taxable revenues of €50m generated in the EU has done little to improve the transatlantic mood.

Pentagon and DARPA Seek Predictive A.I. to Uncover Enemy Thoughts

By Nicholas West

I’ve recently been covering the widening use of predictive algorithms in modern-day police work, which frequently has been compared to the “pre-crime” we have seen in dystopian fiction. However, what is not being discussed as often are the many examples of how faulty this data still is...

Nevertheless, according to an article in Defense One, the Pentagon wants to use these potentially flawed algorithms to read enemy intentions and perhaps even to take action based on the findings...
