CrossTalk: Russiagate

It is fair and appropriate to call it Russiagate – the claim that somehow Russia influenced the outcome of the recent US election. The claims are constant, loud, and often shrill.

The U.S. Army Wants A Super 'Bullet' To Kill Enemy Tanks

Kris Osborn Security, Current innovations involve a cutting-edge technology program, called Massive Overmatch Assault Round or MOAR, aimed exploring the prospect of precision guided rounds for the weapon. The weapon fires High-Explosive air burst rounds, close combat rounds, and then the general support rounds, like the smoke and battlefield elimination, developers said. Airburst rounds use programmable fuse to explode in the air at a precise location, thereby maximizing the weapon's effect against enemy targets hiding, for example, behind a rock, tree or building.   Air burst rounds can detonate in the air or in general proximity to a target. For instance, an airburst round could explode just above an enemy fighter seeking cover behind a rock or wall. "I want to penetrate the target. I want to kill a light armored vehicle.  I want to kill a structure. I want to kill somebody behind the structure. With the gun, soldiers can decide how to affect the targets.  Really, that's what the Carl-Gustaf brings to the battlefield is the ability to decide how they want to affect the battlefield -- not call in air support and mark targets,” Wes Walters, Executive Vice President of Business Development, Land Domain, Saab North America, told Scout Warrior in an interview.  Army and industry weapons developers are working with the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency to explore the feasibility of precision-guided rounds for a man-portable, anti-personnel and ant-armor weapon known as the Carl Gustaf, officials said. Current innovations involve a cutting-edge technology program, called Massive Overmatch Assault Round or MOAR, aimed exploring the prospect of precision guided rounds for the weapon. While the shoulder-fired infantry and Special Operations weapon currently uses multiple rounds and advanced targeting technologies, using a precision “guided” round would enable the weapon to better destroy enemy targets on the move by having the technology to re-direct with advanced seeker technology. “We are exploring different kinds of seekers to pursue precision engagement capabilities,” Malcolm Arvidsson, Product Director, Carl-Gustaf M4, Saab, told Scout Warrior in an interview.    The weapon, called the Multi-Role Anti-Armor, Anti-Personnel Weapons System, known as the Carl-Gustaf, was initially used by Special Operations Forces. Several years ago, it was ordered by the Army in response to an Operational Needs Statement from Afghanistan. Read full article

Стартап Avegant продемонстрировал прототип компактных очков дополненной реальности

Любители технических новинок могут помнить компанию Avegant из-за ее необычного подхода к конструкции видеогарнитуры. Модель The Glyph выглядела как очки виртуальной реальности, совмещенные с наушниками, однако, они работала вполне прилично. Эксперты назвали это устройство «носимым персональным кинотеатром для серьезных фанатов». А сейчас этот стартап взялся за еще более трудную задачу, выпустив Light Field, «платформу смешанной  реальности», которая способна «визуализировать объекты в нескольких фокальных плоскостях». Это означает, что устройство может передавать изображения виртуальных объектов в реальном мире с различной степенью фокусировки. До сих пор неспособность изменять фокусировку приводила к тому, что виртуальные объекты выглядели неестественно на фоне реального окружения. Взгляните на фото ниже: марсоход находится на том же расстоянии, что и рука, в то время как Марс и коридор на заднем плане находятся не в фокусе, и их изображение выглядит нерезким до тех пор, пока фокусировка прибора не изменяется.

Fathers and Sons review – a poignant, poetic memoir

Light and dark combine in Howard Cunnell’s multi-generational story of abandonment, alcoholism and gender transitionThere are several precursors nodded to in the title of Howard Cunnell’s light-filled memoir of childhood, parenthood and gender transition. One thinks of Edmund Gosse’s Father and Son, in which the author, finally cutting himself off from his pious and overbearing father, sets out “to fashion his inner life for himself”. There’s Turgenev’s tale of an ageing man unable to keep pace with his fast-living nihilist son. Then there’s Hemingway’s short story, “Fathers and Sons”, in which the Hemingway figure, Nick Adams, talks to his son about his own father, a man “both cruel and abused” who is dead now, and who was severe and distant in life. In all cases, the message is that parenthood is a different country, that the old are unable to speak to the young, that men are destined to harden with age and repeat the mistakes their fathers made.This is a book of two halves, the first dominated by an absence – that of Cunnell’s own father. Jason Cunnell is a chancer and a fly-by-night who walks out on Howard and his brother, Luke, before Howard is born. The young Howard finds that he’s “terrified by how badly somebody that doesn’t exist can make me feel. My small hands turn to fists when I hear the word: Dad.” The boys’ mother moves to her parents’ in Eastbourne, where Howard and Luke grow up in a familiar muddle of art, literature, music and provincial violence. It’s a charming if well-trodden narrative path, redeemed from the commonplace by the flair Cunnell exhibits in his descriptions of the South Downs. Continue reading...

Valeant: The End Of The Michael Pearson Era

Authored by Roddy Boyd via The Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation, Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, the corporate poster-child for price-gouging, tax-inversion and hedge-fund manager wealth destruction quietly severed all ties with J. Michael Pearson, its former chief executive officer and longtime guiding light, in January according to its annual proxy statement filed this morning. While Pearson stepped down from Valeant in May 2016, and struck a wide-ranging separation agreement that paid him $83,333 per month for consulting–especially the much-touted and at least temporarily disastrous Walgreens contract–his primary job was to cooperate with the seemingly eternally expanding roster of civil and criminal investigations. The deal with Pearson was supposed to last through this December and the use of the word “initial” in the contract’s wording was a suggestion it might be renewed. Valeant, in the Proxy, says it last paid him in October, and in December its board of directors determined no more payments would be made: “In December 2016, the Board determined that we are not in a position to make any further payments to Mr. Pearson, including in connection with his then-outstanding equity awards with respect to 3,053,014 shares.” Pearson’s agreement was terminated in January, for unspecified reasons. Assuming that Valeant’s language isn’t implying that the company simply doesn’t have the cash available to pay Pearson, then a legitimate question becomes whether he did anything to violate the terms of his agreement through non-cooperation. Given that it paid him $1 million annually with full-benefits, allowing him to have an office, an assistant and legal fees paid for, this doesn’t seem to be in his best interests. Also of note is the timing of the cessation of payments to Pearson in October given that charges against Philidor Rx Services were filed on November 17. While it is highly unlikely that Valeant’s board would have a sense of when–or even if–additional charges might be brought, their own counsel was assuredly aware that federal prosecutors have a long-standing practice of refusing to negotiate settlements with companies where they are actively pursuing indictments against current leadership. (Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation readers will recall our investigative work from October 2015 that began an ongoing re-examination of the company’s ethics and business practices that has forced its share price to $10.86 in recent trading, down from over $257 in July, 2015.) A call to Scott Hirsch, Valeant’s Communications chief, seeking comment was not returned.

These Are The 2 Key Ways People Get Hooked On Prescription Opioids

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Two new studies offer insight into how people get hooked on opioids. One critical way is taking prescription narcotics: The risk of transitioning from short-term to long-term opioid uses spikes after only eight days of taking narcotic pain pills, according to a study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But there’s a second major risk for young people, too. According to a new study in the journal Pediatrics, keeping unsecured opioids in the home is a key point of opioid exposure for children and teenagers. These findings shed light on what’s been a tension point in the medical community. Although patients require safe and effective pain treatments, some doctors overprescribe opioids, and given their highly addictive nature, they can wreak further havoc on the health of patients ― or that of their families. It doesn’t take long to get hooked on pain pills  The switch from acute to long-term opioid use can happen in a matter of days. According to a March 17 CDC report, people who use opioids for one day have a 6 percent chance of continuing to use them a year later. That risk for long-term use jumps to 13 percent after eight days of opioid use. And although very few patients receive month-long opioid prescriptions, those who do are at a 30 percent chance of continuing to use them a year later. “The initial prescription a clinician writes has a pretty profound impact on a person’s (likelihood) for being a long-term opioid user,” Bradley Martin, study author and head of the Division of Pharmaceutical Evaluation and Policy at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy, told CNN. Children of all ages are exposed to opioids  Adults aren’t the only victims of the United States’ ongoing opioid crisis. Teenagers, preteens and children younger than age 5 are all at risk for opioid exposure, according to a study published March 20 in Pediatrics.  “We’ve known for several years about the opioid epidemic affecting adults in this country,” Dr. Gary Smith, study author and director of the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, told The Huffington Post. “When adults bring these medications into their homes, they can become a danger to the children that live there.” The study examined 188, 468 prescription opioid exposure reports from poison control centers in the United States between 2000 and 2015. It found that the number of opioid exposures increased by 86 percent between 2000 and 2009, then fell by about 30 percent between 2009 and 2015. There were also trends in how children and young adults of different ages were exposed to opioids.    Children 5 years old and younger were most likely to accidentally encounter opioids through “exploratory exposure.” Six- to 12-year-olds were usually exposed because of medication errors, such as being given the wrong dose of a drug. Teenagers were mostly likely to come in contact with opioids intentionally, by misusing opioids recreationally or as a self-harm mechanism. In fact, suspected opioid-related suicides among teenagers rose 53 percent between 2000 and 2015. Teenage opioid use over time  A long-term companion study also published in Pediatrics on March 20 found that 1 in 4 high school seniors reported medical or non-medical prescription opioid use, with peak use in both 1989 and 2002 and a decline in opioid use from 2013 through 2015. The researchers also found a strong correlation between teens taking opioids for medical reasons before trying them recreationally.  “One consistent finding we observed over the past two decades is that the majority of nonmedical users of prescription opioids also have a history of medical use of prescription opioids,” Sean McCabe, study author and research professor at the University of Michigan, told Live Science.  And a population-level decline in teen opioid use doesn’t mean every community has experienced opioid use decline.   “Opioid use disproportionately affects some urban and more rural areas,” Dr. David Rosen, professor of anesthesia and pediatrics at West Virginia University, noted in an accompanying editorial. “Americans consume 80 percent of the world’s prescription opioids, and inappropriate use takes a high toll on society,” Rosen wrote. “We are heartened to see a recent decrease, but we see it as a measured improvement.”  How to keep opioids out of the hands of kids  The was one exception to the decline in calls between 2009 and 2015 to poison control centers for youth exposure to opioids. That was calls related to buprenorphine, an opioid addiction treatment.  Buprenorphine-related calls rose during that time period, with 90 percent of those exposures in children under the age of 5, an indication that many adults fail to properly secure their medication. Storing prescription opioids out of the reach of small children, and importantly, locked up, is paramount. Parents can also keep the number for poison control in their cell phones, in case of an emergency. For teenagers, especially those who may be at risk for self-harm, the solution is more complex than keeping medication locked away or on a high shelf. Teens need to be educated about the dangers of opioid use, according to Smith. Public health interventions, such as expanding access to naloxone (the opioid overdose reversal drug) and improving teenagers’ access to mental health services are similarly important.  Doctors can also do their part by following Surgeon General Vivek Murthy’s recommendation to prescribe pain patients the lowest possible opioid dose for the shortest amount of time. Proper prescribing practices help ensure that patients aren’t left with a surplus of pills, which have the potential to fall into the wrong hands.    “While overall rates of exposure to opioids among children are going down, they are still too high,” Smith said. “We need to continue to examine our prescription practices and to increase education to parents about safe ways to store these medications at home to keep them out of the hands of children.” This reporting is brought to you by HuffPost’s health and science platform, The Scope.

No Labels Jumps Into Health Care Debate With Its Trademark Idiocy

At some point in the next few days, the House of Representatives is allegedly going to hold a vote on the American Health Care Act, which was hastily being revised in the dead of night on Wednesday after it became clear that it wasn’t cruel enough to win the Republican votes it needed. This round of “repeal and replace” fury has had it all: wretched Congressional Budget Office scores, internecine fighting, packed town halls of angry constituents, and President Donald Trump trying to play dealmaker. Really, what was it missing? How about: the idiotic input of one of Washington’s longest-running clown shows! Well, have no fear, because No Labels ― now in its seventh year of fleecing wealthy lackwits in the name of fuzzy-headed goals about which the group is not even sincere ― is back on the scene, tweeting complaints about the legislative process in its own inimitably clueless style. Soon after this late-Wednesday tweet got bleated, it got deleted. Not fast enough, though. It really deserves to be remembered for all time, as the ne plus ultra of this organization’s particular brand of hackery. Where to even start with this? Well, the big story, from the perspective of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) ― who’s attempting to will the AHCA into existence as the first step of a convoluted, high-wire process that’s ultimately supposed to yield a massive tax cut for the wealthy ― is that the so-called Freedom Caucus has been the hardest cohort of his GOP colleagues to win over. ’Twas ever thus. The group of right-wing ideologues that calls itself the Freedom Caucus thwarted the designs of Ryan’s predecessor, former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), just as steadfastly. And their numbers have been great enough that any Republican leader in the House who want to get anything done with the GOP’s congressional majority is going to have to make sure the Caucus is happy. In this particular instance, Freedom Caucus members arrayed themselves against Ryan’s initial plan because, among other things, they felt that the refundable tax credits in the AHCA were still too generous ― a government “entitlement,” they said, that would add impurity to the free market. (In response, Ryan has tried to sweeten the pie by eliminating the essential benefits that the Affordable Care Act made mandatory to any insurance plan, turning what was already a breathtakingly harsh piece of legislation into something even more inhumane.) It’s important to note here that what we call the ongoing “health care debate” is entirely an intra-party fracas among Republicans. (One that’s only likely to drag on if this bill ever manages to pass the House, because signs point to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ― who also has a whip count problem ― putting the bill to a quick death.) Democrats have absolutely nothing to do with any of this. They didn’t seek this fight, and they’ve contributed zero to the problems that have bedeviled Ryan. It’s beyond weird for No Labels to suggest that Democrats are somehow responsible for “getting off the sidelines” and resolving what amounts to an ideological standoff in the Republican caucus.  Moreover, even if Democrats wanted to help Republicans overcome these fratricidal impulses, it’s not clear how they would go about doing this. Democrats have been entirely shut out of the debate. Some conservatives, like Christopher Ruddy and Peggy Noonan, have urged Republicans to reach across the aisle, but GOP legislators have treated their Democratic counterparts as personae non grata throughout this process. So there’s no point of entry by which Democrats could insert themselves and bring peace unto Paul Ryan’s lands. And all of this simply looks past an even more essential question: Why in the name of chicken and grits would Democrats want to help worsen the health care of millions of Americans? Bipartisanship: When two parties work together to take healthcare away from poor people. https://t.co/DWv9kRtmrb— Zach Carter (@zachdcarter) March 23, 2017 No Labels’ contention, that Democrats have “missed their chance to shape healthcare,” manages to overlook the time when Democrats “shaped healthcare” by passing this thing called the Affordable Care Act. When that happened, enormous efforts were made to involve the GOP in the process ― beginning with the fact that Democrats borrowed a center-right template that at one point was the entire justification for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s entry into presidential politics. If anyone at No Labels would be interested in learning who missed the chance to shape health care, the ur-text was written by David Frum in March 2010. Spoiler alert: It was Republicans, who made the strategic decision not to compromise or negotiate, despite the near-desperate overtures President Barack Obama was making at the time. From start to end, the beliefs that No Labels expressed in this one tweet are truly bizarre. In order to hold them, you would have to literally not know anything about current events or contemporary politics. To call No Labels merely out of touch doesn’t really go far enough. Theirs is an ignorance so vast, and so total, that light cannot escape from it. But we are not nearly done! Maybe the most important thing you need to understand about No Labels is that the group does not actually have a stance on health care reform. Its members haven’t the slightest idea what would constitute an effective health care policy. They don’t have any concept of or concern about outcomes, or how a massive health care overhaul would affect millions of Americans. They do not offer any values, or goals, or benchmarks of their own about what health care in America should look like, whom it should cover, how it should be paid for or whether it should be a fundamental right. They have no earthly idea about how ordinary people live or what they want. This is literally the case! Right now, on the No Labels website, they are polling people about “What should Congress keep in or remove from health care reform?” This is not a survey that No Labels needs to conduct. That it exists demonstrates how intellectually uncurious this organization is. If the No Labels people wanted to, they could pick up a phone and call a group like the Kaiser Foundation, which is likely to have up-to-the-minute research about what people want. Kaiser’s Drew Altman, in fact, has shared research from Kaiser’s most recent focus groups right in the pages of The New York Times.  So, remind me again, who is it that “missed the chance to shape healthcare,” exactly? No Labels: How about y’all find the sidelines, grab some pine and stay put. ~~~~~ Jason Linkins edits “Eat The Press” for The Huffington Post and co-hosts the HuffPost Politics podcast “So, That Happened.” Subscribe here, and listen to the latest episode below.       -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Clueless Neo-Nazi Fears Black Man's Murder Makes White Supremacists Look Bad

A prominent neo-Nazi is condemning the recent fatal stabbing of a black man in New York, mainly because he fears it will compromise the public’s perception of white supremacists and increase discrimination against them.  Andrew Anglin is the founder of the Daily Stormer, a website that the Southern Povery Law Center says is dedicated to spreading anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism. His own writings include many offensive statements about African-Americans and how he believes they are “incompatible with whites” can’t help their “irrational outbursts of brutal violence are a part of their nature.” So it was may have caught some off-guard when Anglin condemned the recent murder of Timothy Caughman, a black man fatally stabbed by a white man on Monday. Police arrested James Harris Jackson for the killing, and said the 28-year-old suspect told them he traveled from Baltimore specifically to kill black men and that he had plans to kill more.  function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); In a blog post on Wednesday, Anglin denounced the slaying but for reasons that have nothing to do with an innocent man losing his life for hateful reasons.  Instead, Anglin’s rationale for condemning the murder is more outlandish, clueless and unintentionally ironic reasons: He thinks it’s going to paint white supremacists in a bad light and lead to discrimination against them. “Though we should acknowledge the tragedy of what Jackson did, the most important thing for us to remember is that he does not represent White Supremacy. White Supremacy is a religion of peace, and the overwhelming majority of White Supremacists are peaceful members of society who do not agree with stabbing random black people with swords. “The attack has nothing at all to do with the religion of White Supremacy, and white supremacists are under no obligation to apologize for this attack. In fact, White Supremacists are now going to be subject to unfair scrutiny and prejudice in light of this attack. There is a threat now that people with swastika tattoos, Screwdriver t-shirts, shaved heads or other cultural symbols of White Supremacy will be unfairly discriminated against after this attack.” Of course, white supremacists are rarely prejudiced against because of their skin color (more because of their hateful views against everyone). Anglin also worries white supremacists will be forced to cover-up their swastika tattoos, or risk being victimized by “bigots who would wrongly associate them with this attack.” He adds:  “It’s time for society to rally around White Supremacists, and show that we don’t blame them for the single act of someone who wrongly used their beliefs for evil.” That passage is particularly striking considering that white supremacists have no problem blaming all black people or the Black Lives Matter movement every time a black person kills a white police officer like last summer in Dallas. Anglin ends his post by proposing white supremacists and the people who inexplicably love them signal their support on Twitter with #IllRideWithYou. He says it will be a way to connect neo-Nazis and other racists with people happy to accompany them to work to make sure they get there safe. That hashtag was previously used by Australians fighting Islamophobia by reaching out to Muslims in their communities. And Anglin co-opting the hashtag wasn’t accidental ― he expressly linked to a Mic story about the hashtag in his post. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Appeals court sets May argument on revised Trump travel ban

A federal appeals court has set arguments for May 8 on the validity of a key aspect of President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban executive order. However, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals signaled Thursday that it could rule even sooner on the federal government’s request for a stay of a Maryland-based federal district court judge’s order halting the Trump directive’s ban on issuance of visas to six Muslim-majority countries. The Richmond-based appeals court set a schedule to complete filings on the Trump administration’s stay request by April 5, suggesting that a ruling on that could come early next month. Even if the 4th Circuit gives Trump the green light to proceed with his revised travel ban order, he faces other legal obstacles. A federal judge in Hawaii blocked two full sections of the order, including the visa limits, a 120-day suspension of refugee admissions to the U.S. from around the globe, and some studies the president directed on vetting of visitors to the U.S. The Justice Department has not yet appealed that ruling. Instead, federal government lawyers appear to be moving forward with another round of legal proceedings in the Hawaii court. The Maryland suit was brought by refugee assistance organizations and several individuals, while the Hawaii litigation was filed by the State of Hawaii and the imam of a local Muslim association. Cases are also pending in several other jurisdictions across the country, with at least one judge presently mulling a request for a preliminary injunction blocking Trump’s revised executive order in its entirety. The federal government asked the 4th Circuit to consider the stay request and the merits of the appeal in parallel, but the refugee groups opposed that request, saying the stay issue should be teed up first. The appeals court appears to have sided with the groups on that point, although the expedited schedule for the stay was granted on the schedule the government proposed.

Саудовская Аравия с января 2015 года снижает поставочные цены на нефть для США и Азии

ЛОНДОН, 4 декабря. /ТАСС/. Саудовская Аравия с января 2015 года снизит поставочные цены на нефть для США и Азии. Об этом сообщает агентство Bloomberg. Стоимость нефти Arab Light снижена на $2 за баррель. Как ранее сообщал Wall Street Journal со ссылкой на источники, Саудовская Аравия не намерена сокращать объемы добычи нефти и рассматривает в качестве допустимой для себя цену барреля Brent в $60. Крупнейший производитель нефти в рядах ОПЕК Саудовская Аравия считает, что нефтяные цены способны стабилизироваться в районе $60 за баррель. Эр-Рияд и другие страны Персидского залива уверены, что способны выдержать этот ценовой уровень", - пишет издание. Страны Персидского залива не установили для себя определенную целевую цену барреля, и если она упадет ниже $60, то длительное время на данном уровне не продержится, говорит источник WSJ. По мнению источников газеты, нынешний подход Саудовской Аравии означает, что в ближайшей перспективе она не пойдет на сокращение добычи, даже если цены на нефть продолжат падение. Глава "Роснефти" Игорь Сечин также допускает, что цена нефти может упасть до $60 за баррель и ниже в первой половине 2015 года. В интервью австрийской Die Presse, опубликованном 27 ноября, он отметил, что у "Роснефти" достаточно запасов и места для маневра.
