Trump: Iranian people are finally 'getting wise'

President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted that the continuing protests in Iran indicate people in that Middle Eastern country are fed up with their government."The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism," the president wrote on Twitter. "Looks like they will not take it any longer."According to an Associated Press report, two protesters were killed overnight in the first deaths attributed to the demonstrations, which began on Thursday over Iran's economy. The AP added that while the protests have sparked clashes, the country's paramilitary Revolutionary Guard and its affiliates have not intervened as they have in other unauthorized demonstrations since the 2009 election. At least 50 protesters have been arrested since Thursday.Protesters have been using social media to publish images and videos of their actions, but that could be changing. On Sunday morning, Pavel Durov, the CEO of the popular messaging app Telegram, wrote on Twitter that Iranian authorities are blocking access to his app."Iranian authorities are blocking access to Telegram for the majority of Iranians after our public refusal to shut down ... peacefully protesting channels,” Durov wrote.The AP cited an anonymous state news report that social media access in the Islamic Republic would be temporarily limited.As he had before, Trump emphasized that the world is watching: "The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!" The president and his administration have been outspoken in their early statements about the protests.During the campaign, Trump promised to end the United States' participation in the Iranian nuclear deal, a key Obama-era foreign policy achievement that sought to rein in Iran's nuclear ambitions. As POLITICO previously reported, such a move could occur as soon as next month.Also on Sunday, the president returned to Twitter to mock two familiar targets before the new year begins: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party."If the Dems (Crooked Hillary) got elected, your stocks would be down 50% from values on Election Day," the president claimed, ignoring evidence that the financial markets are performing at or below the same rate that they reached under President Barack Obama. "Now they have a great future — and just beginning!"Trump also took the opportunity to sell the GOP's message in what could be a very tough midterm cycle for Republicans."Why would smart voters want to put Democrats in Congress in 2018 Election when their policies will totally kill the great wealth created during the months since the Election," he wrote. "People are much better off now not to mention ISIS, VA, Judges, Strong Border, 2nd A, Tax Cuts & more?"

Parents! It’s New Year’s Eve! Let’s party | Eva Wiseman

There’s only one way for parents to have a proper old-fashioned celebration on New Year’s Eve – and that’s to send the kids away. Here’s the plan…Here’s an idea: a New Year’s Eve camp for the children of parents who still love a party. Not just drinks, a dinner, but a party party, you know, a thing that starts gently with a plastic glass and chatter about school catchments and then joyfully descends.A New Year’s Eve camp that starts today, lunchtime, where children collect by the campfire in full excitement and coats, and their parents, vibrating with guilt, cover them with weighted kisses before dashing off to shave their legs and put a record on. The camp could be in Elstree. Somewhere like Elstree. Somewhere suitably green and anonymous, but accessible by motorway. The children would have structured play for the first two hours, while parents made their ways home, relaxing a little more at every petrol station. And they’d get home, rushing now, steaming up the bathroom, a spritz of something citric maybe, the door to the kids’ room slightly ajar, its contents of Stickle Bricks and puddled tights like a conquered landscape. The music is important, the kitchen Sonos pumping out songs that remind them how to be the people they were when they met, with ambition and mopeds and all their hair. At some point they close the kids’ room door. Continue reading...

After questioning Spicer, Democrats want to depose Priebus about election night activities

Fresh from interviewing former White House press secretary Sean Spicer over what he was doing on the fifth floor of Trump Tower on election night, Democrats now want to interview former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. Spicer’s presence that night has caused some unease among Republicans because the expiration of a 35-year-old settlement, or consent decree, barring the RNC from engaging in ballot security operations may depend on it. The fifth floor, POLITICO has reported, was the nerve center of then-candidate Donald Trump’s poll-watching operations. Spicer, at the time, was the RNC’s communications director and chief strategist. The Democratic request to interview Priebus may be the last gasp in the party’s quest to keep the consent decree alive. Spicer said he never saw a sign warning him to keep away from the fifth floor of Trump Tower on election night 2016, even though four Republican sources told POLITICO there were large signs on the doors leading to the fifth floor warning RNC staffers to keep out. But, Spicer said, RNC staffers knew not to get involved in ballot security operations, even if he didn’t recall them being warned away from the fifth floor. "Over the course of six years, the counsel's office had been vigilant in informing both senior staff and subordinates on the importance of the Consent Decree 20 and the activities that we were clearly not — should not be engaged [in] or be even perceived as engaging in," Spicer said in his deposition. "And so we had grown accustomed to not even coming too close to a line that would in any way, shape or form lead one to believe that we were engaged in those activities.”Spicer said the party was careful “to ensure that we didn't do anything that was questionable.”Spicer in a magazine interview described an “oversized utility room” on the fifth floor where he watched election returns from crucial swing states. Also present, Spicer said in his deposition, was Priebus. The consent decree originated from the RNC’s voter intimidation efforts in New Jersey’s 1981 gubernatorial election. Republicans, some of whom were armed off-duty law enforcement officers wearing armbands, showed up at urban polling places and challenged voters. The display was blamed for suppressing the black vote, allowing Republican Tom Kean to squeak out an extremely narrow victory over Democrat Jim Florio.The consent decree was set to expire Dec. 1. But Democrats sought to extend it, alleging that statements from Trump officials showed the RNC had participated in poll-watching efforts.U.S. District Court Judge John Michael Vazquez allowed Democrats to depose Spicer before deciding whether the decree should expire, but ruled against Democrats' requests for hearings. “Contrary to the suggestions by some of the anonymous sources in the POLITICO article, Mr. Spicer did not observe, nor was he aware of, any signs prohibiting RNC personnel from being present on the fifth floor of Trump Tower on Election Day,” RNC attorney Bobby Burchfield wrote in a letter to Vazquez. “This Court has repeatedly observed that the DNC has failed to submit evidence of RNC participation in ballot security efforts or voter suppression efforts during the 2016 election cycle. … Accordingly, the RNC urges the Court to terminate these proceedings and confirm that the Consent Decree has expired.” But Angelo Genova, an attorney for the Democratic National Committee who tried the original consent decree case in the early 1980s, said “several points” Spicer raised should permit the DNC to depose Priebus and two Trump campaign officials.“The DNC submits that it should be permitted to question Mr. Priebus to determine whether he had any communications related to ballot-security efforts on Election Day," Genova wrote. "In addition, the DNC seeks to question Mr. Priebus on the material discrepancies noted above between Mr. Spicer’s testimony and POLITICO's reporting. Given that Mr. Priebus was the Chair of the RNC and was present on the fifth floor of Trump Tower on Election Day, he should be able to testify directly to the pertinent points." Genova also asked Vazquez to allow the DNC to depose two Trump campaign officials: Mike Roman, who Genova said oversaw the Trump campaign’s “election protection” efforts, and the Trump campaign’s digital director, Brad Parscale. In addition, Genova wants to see all the photos Spicer took at Trump Tower on Election Day, as well as ask the RNC about what kind of guidance it gave employees, if any, about staying away from the Trump Tower’s fifth floor.

Russian Tankers Reportedly Caught Selling Oil To North Korea

After Chinese vessels were "caught red handed" - in the words of President Trump - by US spy satellites, illegally selling oil to North Korea, and following this morning's news that a Hong Kong ship was seized after transferring oil to North Korea, Reuters  is reporting 'two senior Western European security sources' confirm Russian tankers have supplied fuel to North Korea on at least three occasions in recent months by transferring cargoes at sea. As Reuters reports, the transfers in October and November indicate that smuggling from Russia to North Korea has evolved to loading cargoes at sea since Reuters reported in September that North Korean ships were sailing directly from Russia to their homeland. "The vessels are smuggling Russian fuel from Russian Far Eastern ports to North Korea," said the first security source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Reuters was unable to independently verify that the vessels had transferred fuel to North Korean vessels, whether the Russian state knew about the sales or how many Russian vessels were involved in the transfers. It was also unclear how much fuel may have been smuggled. Ship satellite positioning data consulted by Reuters and available on Reuters Eikon shows unusual movements by some of the Russian vessels named by the security sources including switching off the transponders which give a precise location. The security sources said the Russian-flagged tanker Vityaz was one vessel that had transferred fuel to North Korean vessels.   The Vityaz oil products tanker The Vityaz left the port of Slavyanka near Vladivostok in Russia on Oct. 15 with 1,600 tonnes of oil, according to Russian port control documents. The owner of the Russian vessel denied any contact with North Korean vessels but also said it was unaware that the vessel was fuelling fishing boats. Yaroslav Guk, deputy director of the tanker's owner, Vladivostok-based Alisa Ltd, said the vessel had no contacts with North Korean vessels. "Absolutely no, this is very dangerous," Guk told Reuters by telephone. "It would be complete madness." Two other Russian flagged tankers made similar journeys between the middle of October and November, leaving from the ports of Slavyanka and Nakhodka into open seas where they switched off their transponders, shipping data showed. The sales of oil or oil products from Russia, the world's second biggest oil exporter and a veto-wielding member of the United Nations Security Council, breach U.N. sanctions, the security sources said. "Russian vessels have made ship-to-ship transfers of petrochemicals to North Korean vessels on several occasions this year in breach of sanctions," the first security source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters. A second source, who independently confirmed the existence of the Russian ship-to-ship fuel trade with North Korea, said there was no evidence of Russian state involvement in the latest transfers. "There is no evidence that this is backed by the Russian state but these Russian vessels are giving a lifeline to the North Koreans," the second European security source said. The two security sources cited naval intelligence and satellite imagery of the vessels operating out of Russian Far Eastern ports on the Pacific but declined to disclose further details to Reuters, saying it was classified. Russia's Foreign Ministry and the Russian Customs Service both declined to comment when asked. *  *  * Finally, if these alleged interactions are true, then it highlights the degenerating position of the supposed US hegemon in the eyes of the world. Just today, we saw reports that China's launching of its petro-yuan oil futures contract is days away.

To Find Meaning in Your Work, Change How You Think About It

Sam Austin/Unsplash A wonderful New York Times article from 2007 recounted the 20th annual “Operator’s Challenge” — aka the “Sludge Olympics” — a competition for New York sewage treatment workers. The participants compete to show skill in their work, and often do so with great passion. Emily Lloyd, the commissioner of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, said of the work the competitors do, “It’s tough work. It’s frequently unpleasant work. And they’re terrific at it.” And as you read the article, you note the pride the competitors have in their work and the purpose they find in doing it well. One man, George Mossos, noting how anonymous their work can be, is quoted saying, “It’s enough to serve the public.” Why is it that some people can be extraordinarily well-paid and work in pampered settings but feel empty, while others can work in the sewers of New York City and feel fulfilled? Part of the answer is purpose. As I noted recently in a recent article, for most people, purpose is built not found. Working with a sense of purpose day-in and day-out is an act of will that takes thoughtfulness and practice. Having observed friends and colleagues working with and without purpose for years, I’d offer the following advice on how to consciously endow your work with purpose regardless of your profession. Connect work to service. When I was in graduate school, I once heard Bill George tell a story about how he’d highlight both patients and employees at the Medtronic annual meeting when he was CEO. He’d invite a person whose life had been saved by a defibrillator, for example, to speak to his assembled colleagues and tell them how their work had saved his life. He’d highlight someone in the Medtronic quality control department and explain how her dedication and rigor were saving thousands of lives. He’d connect his colleagues directly to the people they served. While everyone may not handle situations of life and death at work, we each do serve someone in what we do. Teachers can see every day the young lives they are shaping — and visualize the lasting impact they may have on the young lives they touch. Corporate accountants can connect themselves mentally to the larger work of their organizations and take pride and purpose in the customers they help. Who do you serve? Connecting our day-to-day jobs — consciously and concretely — to those we’re ultimately serving makes completing that work more purposeful. Craft your work – and make work a craft. Yale Professor Amy Wrzesniewski once did an in-depth study of hospital custodial staff to determine what helped certain members of the custodial team excel. Her results (recounted by David Zax) were fascinating. Wrzesniewski uncovered a practice among the happiest and most effective custodians she termed “job crafting.” These custodial workers, focused intensely on serving patients, would “[create] the work they wanted to do out of the work they’d been assigned—work they found meaningful and worthwhile.” One would rearrange artwork in rooms to stimulate comatose patients’ brains; others devoted time to learning about the chemicals they used for cleaning rooms and figuring out which were least likely to irritate patients’ conditions. They were pursuing excellence in service to others and would adapt their jobs to suit that purpose. They enhanced their assigned work to be meaningful to themselves and to those they serve. Wrzesniewski and her colleagues have even begun to think more deeply about exercises that can help anyone focus on crafting their work into something that gives them purpose while still getting the core of their job done. In another sense of the term, this crafting was also a demonstration of treating work as craft — focusing on the skill needed to complete one’s work and dedicating oneself to perfecting those skills. This atmosphere of constant improvement in service of craft — so ably demonstrated by the sewage treatment workers of New York — in itself seems to fill professional pursuits with greater purpose. Invest in positive relationships. Who we work with is as important as what we do. Psychologist Martin Seligman (among others) has written extensively on the importance of relationships to happiness and fulfillment (it’s a core element of his “PERMA” model for flourishing); and the now famous Harvard Grant Study found that happiness and even financial success are tied to the warmth of one’s relationships, with the study’s chief architect famously concluding, “Happiness is love. Full stop.” You and Your Team Series Making Work More Meaningful You’re Never Done Finding Purpose at Work Dan Pontefract The Research We’ve Ignored About Happiness at Work André Spicer and Carl Cederström What to Do When Your Heart Isn’t in Your Work Anymore Andy Molinsky While relationships necessarily (and appropriately) look different within the workplace than outside of it, they still matter. We’d all be served by identifying more ways to develop positive collegial relationships at work. Identify a newer or younger employee you’d like to empower, and offer to help them navigate your firm. Take the lead in scheduling an event that will allow you and your colleagues to know one another more fully. Simply take the time to reflect on a new colleague each day, trying to understand him or her and why you’re grateful to have the opportunity to work with them. Whatever your approach, efforts to enhance the positive relationships you have with others at work — often investing in serving them — can give work greater meaning. Remember why you work. Most of us don’t have the luxury of working solely for fun. We may enjoy our jobs, but we also work to earn money and pay bills. For most of us, work in and of itself is a meaningful act of service. Parents often work hard to invest in their children; and those without kids often help support aging parents or other relatives. Those without families often use their resources to support organizations they love in the community or their friends in times of need. It’s rare to find someone working with only their personal needs in mind. Who are you working for? Identify that person or group of people. When the hours are difficult or the tasks are unglamorous, remember that your work is an act of service for those you care about in your personal life. Keeping this front of mind will help you tie more purpose into your work, even when accomplishing the most tedious of tasks. Purpose isn’t magic — it’s something we must consciously pursue and create. With the right approach, almost any job can be meaningful.

Video games are unlocking child gambling. This has to be reined in | Alex Hern

The system of ‘loot box’ gaming is perfectly pitched to profit from players and drive addiction, with all its associated costsIn a tale of gambling addiction posted to Reddit shortly before Christmas, the numbers were as shocking as they were unsurprising. First the anonymous addict frittered away $200 (£149), in November 2016. Then $700 more, later that month. Then $300, $400, $1,500 … eventually, by December 2017, a credit card debt of $16,000, too large to be kept a secret any longer. It’s a painful narrative, one that’s not softened through repeated telling.What might be more surprising is the particular type of gambling under discussion. This man hadn’t lost his money betting on football, or feeding notes into a fixed-odds betting terminal. He had been playing the mobile video game Final Fantasy: Brave Exodus (FFBE), a free-to-play game for android and iOS based on the Final Fantasy series. Continue reading...

Maureen Baker obituary

Fashion designer best known for creating Princess Anne’s wedding dress in 1973Maureen Baker did not go into fashion to make her name, because that was not how the business worked when she started out, picking up pins in the workshop. The names on the labels were those of modest companies with distinctive identities, such as Susan Small, where she designed anonymously for over 30 years. Baker, who has died aged 97, first emerged in public at 53; she had for a while been personally designing for a special Susan Small customer, Princess Anne, who then said: “You will, of course, be making my wedding dress.”That dress, for the princess’s marriage to Captain Mark Phillips in 1973, was a very big deal. The court designer Norman Hartnell had created Anne’s mother Elizabeth’s wedding gown in 1947, and its relative glamour had been a national obsession amid austerity. Anne had more problems with fashion than her mother and grandmother: attempts by venerable British couturiers to do 1960s styles had made the teenage Anne look like lamb dressed as mutton, while new Brit fashion was too wild for courtly duties. When Anne was 18, Princess Alexandra, a long-term Susan Small customer, had recommended she should put herself in the hands of Baker, its chief designer since 1943. Continue reading...

Scientists Discovered North Korean Defector Carried Anthrax Antibodies

As we’ve reported here and here, there have been several high-profile defections this year involving Korean soldiers sprinting across the heavily fortified border between the two Koreas – a feat that had not been previously accomplished since 2007. In the first incident, the soldier was shot seven times as he staged a daring escape that ended with him being dragged to safety by American and South Korean forces. That incident was caught on video, which can be viewed below. In the second incident, a North Korean soldier simply walked across. Two other soldiers also escaped in incidents that apparently weren’t picked up by the western media. Now, doctors examining one of the soldiers have reportedly discovered that he possesses antibodies to Anthrax – a potent chemical weapon that was notoriously used in the 2001 Anthrax attacks in the US. According to the New York Post, a South Korean intelligence official who spoke on condition of anonymity did not say which of the four soldiers who fled the hermit kingdom this year had the antibodies in his system. But the discovery is causing concern in Seoul because, once the bacterium is released, it can kill 80% of those infected within 24 hours unless antibiotics are taken or vaccination is available. And while the US has stockpiles of the vaccine, South Korea has yet to produce it. Defense Ministry spokeswoman Choi Hyun-soo said an anthrax “vaccine is expected to be developed by the end of 2019,” but likely not before then. The restive North Korean regime has been suspected of developing biological weapons after publicizing the works of the Pyongyang Biological Technology Research Institute in 2015. The institute is run by the North Korean army. Pyongyang claimed the facility specializes in pesticide research, but analysts have said its dual-use equipment suggests biological weapons are being manufactured in North Korea. North Korea’s neighbors fear Pyongyang is conducting illegal biological weapons tests to see if anthrax-laden warheads can be loaded onto its missiles, the Sun of the UK reported. Media reports earlier this year suggested that North Korea had begun to test loading anthrax onto them. The report said the US is aware of the tests, which are meant to ascertain whether the anthrax bacteria could survive reentry into the Earth's atmosphere - as we pointed out last week. Seoul believes North Korea has a chemical weapons stockpile of up to 5,000 tons and can produce biological warfare agents such as anthrax and smallpox. Also last week, the White House pointed to the dangers posed by North Korea in the National Security Strategy released by President Trump. "North Korea - a country that starves its own people - has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on nuclear, chemical and biological weapons that could threaten our homeland," read the report. "[North Korea is] pursuing chemical and biological weapons which could also be delivered by missile." Pyongyang denied the Asahi report through the state media Korean Central News Agency. "As a state party to the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), [North Korea] maintains its consistent stand to oppose development, manufacture, stockpiling and possession of biological weapons," the KCNA reported.

Украинские хакеры выложили в сеть переписку представителей партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина"

БРЮССЕЛЬ, 16 марта. /Корр. ИТАР-ТАСС Денис Дубровин/. Украинская ячейка международной сети Anonymous и группа хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", выложили в интернет электронную переписку представителей руководства украинских партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина". Архивы с перепиской содержат сообщения, которыми обменивались региональные лидеры партий в Киеве, Львове, Донецке, Харькове и Луганске. В сообщениях, в частности, обсуждается организация силовых провокаций на Восточной Украине с участием активистов "Правого сектора". Никаких независимых подтверждений этой информации, добытой незаконным путем, не существует. Группа украинских хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", в ночь с субботы на воскресенье обрушила основные информационные ресурсы НАТО, которые более 12 часов работали с серьезными перебоями. Их функционирование восстановилось в полной мере только после того, как хакеры распространили заявление "о прекращении DDoS-атаки на ресурсы НАТО". Пока неизвестно, смогли ли эксперты по киберобороне НАТО установить источник атаки и будет ли альянс выдвигать судебные претензии хакерам. Распределенный отказ в обслуживании, известный под английской аббревиатурой DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), - это один из наиболее распространенных методов хакерского нападения, цель которого - перегрузить системы огромным количеством запросов, автоматически направляемых одновременно с большого числа компьютеров.
