In a recent interview published in Jacobin, Noam Chomsky predicts what he thinks would happen if Bernie Sanders won the 2016 presidential election, as well as comments on on the rise of progressive political parties and figures such as Greece's Syriza and the UK's Jeremy Corbyn . Noam Chomsky: "_Suppose that Sanders won, which is pretty unlikely in a system of elections bought. He would be alone: ​​he does not have congressional representatives, he does not have governors, he does not have support in the bureaucracy , he does not have state legislators; and standing alone in this system, he could not do very much. A real political alternative would be across the board, not just a figure in the White House._ It would have to be a broad political movement. In fact, the Sanders campaign I think is valuable - it's opening up issues, it's maybe pressing the mainstream Democrats a little bit in a progressive direction, and it is mobilizing a lot of popular forces, and the most positive outcome would if they remain be after the election. It's a serious mistake to just to be geared to the quadrennial electoral extravaganza and then go home. That's not the way changes take place. Mobilization could lead The to a continuing popular organization which could maybe have an effect in the long run. "

Examples of such sensors include those measuring the ultraviolet index, those used for monitoring heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood oxygen saturation, and those used for air monitoring, ultrasonic scanning, 3D scanning, and the detection of chemicals. Inertial magnetic sensors, earphones, cameras, and Wi-Fi or 3G all play important roles in mobile phone sensing.
As a core communication device, the mobile phone is increasingly popular in our daily lives. A wide variety of functional units and friendly operating systems make mobile phones eminently suitable for smart technological applications, and mobile phones have also attracted the interest of scientists.

I planned to write a different story about the libertarian anti-neocon. Instead, I found this.

Incidentally, President Obama called for a massive research effort to develop a vaccine for the Zika virus, as one does not currently exist. Brazil has now called in 200,000 soldiers to somehow help combat the virus’ spread. Aedes mosquitoes have reportedly been spotted in the U.K. But perhaps the most ironic — or not — proposition was proffered on January 19, by the MIT Technology Review:
“An outbreak in the Western Hemisphere could give countries including the United States new reasons to try wiping out mosquitoes with genetic engineering.

The center of the Zika virus and subsequent epidemic of microcephaly is the same place where GM mosquitoes were released in 2015.

Virus Causing Babies to Have Small Heads Making Way to US; Countries Say Don’t Get Pregnant

*Carried By The Same Mosquito Carrying Dengue Fever & Which A GE Form Was Just Released

By: Claire Bernish/ (ANTIMEDIA) Jan 26, 2016

Strongly suspected to cause microcephaly, a fetal condition causing infants to be born with severe brain damage and smaller heads than normal, Zika virus has been predicted to spread through every nation in the two American continents — except Canada and Chile. 

Zika seems the likely culprit for Guillain-Barré syndrome, as well, which can lead to paralysis.

The World Health Organization stated the virus might spread so widely because the population across the two continents has not previously been exposed, and therefore lacks immunity; and because “Aedes mosquitoes — the main vector for Zika transmission — are present in all the region’s countries except Canada and continental Chile.” 

[http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/zika/en/]

According to a statement, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) “anticipates that Zika virus will continue to spread and will likely reach all countries and territories of the region where Aedes mosquitoes are found.”

[http://www.paho.org/hq/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=11605&Itemid=0&lang=en]

Since October, nearly 4,000 cases of microcephaly have been reported in Brazil, which is considered the epicenter of the Zika outbreak. 

“[M]ore than 1 million people have contracted the virus” there, reported the Washington Post. 

Brazil, El Salvador, Jamaica, and Colombia are now urging women to forego pregnancy for up to two years as a cautionary measure against the virus.

“The recommendation is that people plan their pregnancies, that they avoid if at all possible to have babies this year,” said El Salvador Deputy of Health Vice Minister Eduardo Espinoza in an interview. 

[https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/the_americas/as-zika-virus-spreads-el-salvador-asks-women-not-to-get-pregnant-until-2018/2016/01/22/1dc2dadc-c11f-11e5-98c8-7fab78677d51_story.html]

“This is the first time that we have suffered an attack of Zika virus, and the first attack is always the worst … If we don’t make any recommendations to the population, we could have a high incidence of microcephaly. Of those children, 99 percent will survive, but with limitations in their mental faculties.”

Zika is transmitted almost exclusively by the Aedes mosquito, which is most active during daylight hours. 

Nevertheless, blood transmission and one possible case of sexual transmission have been documented. 

Officials have warned those in affected areas to protect themselves against the aggressive mosquitoes by employing insect repellent, wearing clothing that covers as much of the body as possible (preferably in light colors), and by keeping windows and doors closed and using mosquito nets.

[http://www.paho.org/hq/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=11605&Itemid=0&lang=en]

“Mosquito populations should be reduced and controlled by eliminating breeding sites,” said the PAHO statement. 

“Containers that can hold even small amounts of water where mosquitoes can breed, such as buckets, flower pots, or tires, should be emptied, cleaned, or covered to prevent mosquitoes from breeding in them. 

This will also help prevent dengue* and chikungunya, which are also transmitted by the Aedes mosquitoes.”

Quick Alert On Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes:

So the entire basis (dengue fever) for the GE mosquito campaign is based on faulty diagnosis and faulty science.

Needless to say, without extensive lab testing, there is no way to tell what these GE mosquitoes are actually harboring, in addition to what researchers claim. 

That’s a major red flag.

And finally, wherever these GE mosquitoes have been introduced, or are about to be introduced, the human populations have not been consulted for their permission. 

It’s all being done by government and corporate edict. 
It’s human experimentation on a grand scale.

On Thursday, the Public Health England website reported that “three cases associated with travel to Colombia, Suriname, and Guyana have been diagnosed in U.K. travelers” as of January 18, though it emphasized Zika “does not occur naturally in the U.K.”

[https://www.gov.uk/guidance/zika-virus#zika-in-the-uk]

As of Sunday, the list of countries that have confirmed cases of Zika virus and for which the CDC has issued a travel precaution are Barbados, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, French Guinea, Guatemala, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Saint Martin, Samoa, Suriname, and Venezuela.

The night before the launch, Ebeling and four other engineers at NASA contractor Morton Thiokol had tried to stop the launch. Their managers and NASA overruled them.

That night, he told his wife, Darlene, "It's going to blow up."
Bob Ebeling, an anonymous source for NPR's 1986 report on the disaster, tells NPR that despite warning NASA of troubles before the launch, he believes God "shouldn't have picked me for that job."

New Hampshire is the least religious state in the U.S., edging out Vermont in Gallup's 2015 state-by-state analysis. Mississippi has extended its eight-year streak as the most religious state, followed by neighboring Alabama.

The system sends the server a highly compressed version of an image, and the server sends back an even smaller file, which contains simple instructions for modifying the original image.
As smartphones become people's primary computers and their primary cameras, there is growing demand for mobile versions of image-processing applications.

I really hate how there is no examples of any of the processes. 

edit - found some and based on what I see, I would be kinda pissed if I cant disable it if ever implemented on any photo platform I use.

Apparently she got someone's money and it was enough to get her on the most wanted.  I googled but didn't find who she defrauded.
