WikiLeaks Places $100,000 Bounty on Missing Chapters of TPP Agreement

WikiLeaks has launched a campaign to crowd-source a $100,000 reward for America’s Most Wanted Secret: the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP).

Over the last two years WikiLeaks has published three chapters of this super-secret global deal, despite unprecedented efforts by negotiating governments to keep it under wraps. US Senator Elizabeth Warren has said

“[They] can’t make this deal public because if the American people saw what was in it, they would be opposed to it.”

The remaining 26 chapters of the deal are closely held by negotiators and the big corporations that have been given privileged access. Today, WikiLeaks is taking steps to bring about the public’s rightful access to the missing chapters of this monster trade pact.

The TPP is the largest agreement of its kind in history: a multi-trillion dollar international treaty being negotiated in secret by the US, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Australia and 7 other countries. The treaty aims to create a new international legal regime that will allow transnational corporations to bypass domestic courts, evade environmental protections, police the internet on behalf of the content industry, limit the availability of affordable generic medicines, and drastically curtail each country’s legislative sovereignty.… Read the rest

Film The Police!

Brave New Films just released a new short film about police brutality with a call for us all to do our civil duty and film the police:

From Brave New Films:

Some lawmakers are still pushing to criminalize the recording of police activity in public – and because we know we need more, not less, police accountability, we made this short film to share online!

In 12 states, it is illegal to record audio of police without permission and these states and others are now pushing for further laws criminalizing recording outright.

Filming the police is a right. And it is the only thing bringing the severe injustice of current policing tactics to light.

Fed Up With The Fed

From the good people at Brave New Films: Under pressure from big corporations and Wall Street, the Federal Reserve is moving in ways that will stop wage growth and raise interest rates.  This is a terrible idea that will hurt millions of low wage workers and unemployed Americans.

The Fed makes monetary policies that directly affect us all. They influence the economy, inflation and employment levels. But when over 80 percent of the Federal Reserve members are bankers and heads of corporations, it is no wonder they only represent elite interests and alter the entire economy without any input from us.

We made the short video above explaining why the Fed makes so many decisions for Wall Street rather than Main Street.

The Fed claims to maintain economic stability, but economic stability for whom, big banks or the American people?

That’s why we are calling on the Federal Reserve to listen to the voices of the people whose lives are affected by this weak economy.… Read the rest

Zahi Hawass Has Never Heard of Gobekli Tepe

Some of you may have seen Zahi Hawass, former reality TV star, throw his toys out of the proverbial pram at the mere mention of Robert Bauval and his Orion Correlation theory prior to a speaking event in Cairo. He later returned to the event to take questions from the audience along with disinformation® author Graham Hancock. When an audience member asks Hawass about the now famous megalithic site at Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, Hawass, who trained as an archeologist, says he’s never heard of the place and then refuses to give it any consideration whatsoever. Watch it and squirm:

Zahi Hawass Goes Berserk In Debate With Graham Hancock

Former Egyptian Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass completely loses his mind in the warm up to a debate in Cairo with Graham Hancock. The trigger event appears to be the mention of another disinformation® author, Robert Bauval, a well-respected Egyptologist … in some circles but clearly not in the mind of Hawass.

This is the video description on YouTube:

For more than a year the encounter that took place at the Mena House Hotel, Giza Egypt, on 22 April 2015 between famed Egyptologist Dr Zahi Hawass and controversial alternative historian Graham Hancock, had been billed as”the first open debate between the representatives of two completely different versions of history.” On the night of the event, however, as Graham Hancock was focussing his slides prior to giving his opening presentation, and before most of the audience had even entered the room, Dr Hawass saw that one slide contained a photograph of Hancock’s colleague Robert Bauval, originator of the Orion correlation theory with whom Dr Hawass has had disagreements for many years.

When Online Life Becomes Real Life

Have you ever considered going offline? It’s a terrifying thought isn’t it. Being online is something most of us take for granted. But what happens when something goes wrong? This is the theme of a new short film “Life on Trial” by one of the Internet’s largest carriers.

“We used to connect to the Internet – now we’re just online”, says Brendan Ives, CEO of TeliaSonera International Carrier. “People growing up today know nothing else. It’s just part of life.

The film, takes a light-hearted look at the extreme consequences of our online dependency – a murder trial. “It’s a humorous film, but a serious issue”, says Brendan Ives. “The more people rely on the Internet, the more is at stake. What happens when things go wrong?”

The film was directed by award winning director Tim Hamilton. “I thought the premise was funny, smart and timely”, says Hamilton. “All of us can relate to the blurring of the lines between online life and real life and I thought this was a funny way to comment on it.”

The Creature Foetus

 

The campaign launched with the debut of three films: “Picture Machine”, “Paperports” and “Creature”. Directed by Studio Nos, Charles Young and Ryan Dzierzek respectively, the variation between the three films is a good indicator of the campaign’s overall breadth. “Picture Machine” documents the construction of a reverse zoetrope, “Paperports” lets us peek into the work and process of Young’s intricate miniature paper architecture practice, and “Creature” tells the tale of a mutant reptile on the loose.

The campaign’s remaining films will be released gradually on Sony’s YouTube channel as well as the accompanying site.… Read the rest

Open Source Virtual Reality

Razer's OSVR

Razer’s OSVR

I was just surfing the electronic category of VoucherBin. I could see the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is now in full swing and already there are some weird and wonderful gadgets being presented.

One of the most impressive and exciting pieces of news comes from the tech development company “Razer,” which has been demonstrating that after decades of hard work, the technology may finally be good enough for a commercially released Virtual Reality system. The product entitled “OSVR” which stands for “open source virtual reality”. What is exciting about this is that Razer has made it very open to users. Because various markets that would otherwise be heavily invested in this technology have not gotten around to creating products that could be used with virtual reality, Razer have instead made it very easy for people to utilise its technology.

Razer have truly made their product “open source” by making all of the schematics available for viewing online, which is a bold move for a smaller company.… Read the rest

Long Island residents and community leaders are calling on PSEG Long Island to discontinue using pentachlorophenol (“penta”) on wooden utility poles. Penta has been used as a pesticide and disinfectant in the US in the past. However, since the 1980s, it has been primarily used as a wood preservative for utility poles and railroad ties. There are concerns that penta has been contaminating the groundwater.

Via CBS New York:

Sen. Charles Schumer has added his voice to a growing chorus of elected officials and residents expressing concern about the use of a pesticide on wooden utility poles.

Schumer said at a press conference on Long Island Monday that he’s concerned that pentachlorophenol may be seeping into the groundwater. The pesticide, which is known as penta, also preserves wood.

Schumer wants the federal Environmental Protection Agency to immediately investigate its use on utility poles. He estimates that at least 95,000 wood poles on Long Island have been treated with the chemical.
