QuoteMr Al-Hilli worked for Surrey Satellites Technology Limited (SSTL) near Guildford, and detectives are expected to ask colleagues about whether his work may have made him a target for assassination.
Mr Al-Hilli was part of a team involved in an undisclosed project linked to European Aeronautic Defence and Space. The company designs and launches satellites for clients who want an "eye in the sky" for commercial, civil or security purposes.
However, friends and colleagues said his work was routine and not secret.
Quote from: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/three-australian-soldiers-killed-in-attack-outstanding-leaders/story-e6frf7jo-1226463024260A statement from the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) says Australian and Afghan troops hunting the killer of Lance Corporal Stjepan Milosevic, 40, Sapper James Martin, 21, and Private Robert Poate, 23, have captured "a key facilitator".
"Operating shoulder to shoulder, the Afghan and coalition soldiers successfully captured a key facilitator who not only enabled the insider attack, but also was responsible for IED (improvised explosive device) emplacement, and the kidnapping and murder of Afghan civilians," the ISAF statement said.
It said the operation was planned and executed in co-ordination with Afghan officials including approval by the Oruzgan provincial governor.
Quote from: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-09-02/karzai-calls-for-probe-into-deadly-australian-raid/4238826Afghanistan's president Hamid Karzai has hit out at the Australian military for killing two Afghan men during a search for the rogue soldier who shot dead three Australian troops last week.
The men - identified by the Afghan government as 70-year-old imam Haji Raz Mohammad and his 30-year-old son Abdul Jalil - were killed on Friday night.
The deaths occurred during a raid in which Australian soldiers captured a suspected insurgent leader who is thought to have been helping Hek Matullah, the Afghan soldier who killed three Australian soldiers in a green on blue attack last week, to escape.
Mr Karzai claimed the Australian soldiers acted unilaterally, breaching an agreement to give Afghan forces oversight of night raids.
"The president condemns the operation as a breach of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between Afghanistan and NATO on the special military operations," a statement released by the Afghan government reads.
"President Karzai has also instructed the relevant authorities to launch a full and an all-out probe into the incident so that Afghan government can take a stand as required on the violation of the mutual agreement."
QuoteHILDE: Have you heard of OMGASM?
MARSHALL: What's that, tantric sex?
HILDE: No, it stands for Operation Mindfuck: Golden Apple Seed Mission.
(Correction: it's also the name of a short film which is about yoga and sex. --P.H.)
It's relatively new. It's the idea of sending out a mindfuck to different cabals,
planting mindfucks like golden apple seeds that are spread around and grow.
MARSHALL: Glad OM is still growing. Idea's not new, though; we did it. I never
thought Discordia would go anywhere. Back then.
QuoteHILDE: There's a Discordian book called the Black Iron Prison that says we're all
prisoners trapped in grey walls and it's up to us to do what we will, but we're still in
a perceptual prison.
MARSHALL: That sounds like negatism, hopelessness--what Thornley and Hill
called "Greyface talk." There's a line in one of the books, maybe Summa
Universalia. People lock up themselves in cages because they're afraid of the real
world and then complain because they don't have any freedom. (The quote is also
in Principia Discordia: "Ye have locked yerselves up in cages of fear--and, behold,
do ye now complain that ye lack FREEDOM!"--P.H.)
HILDE: The BIP's not that way. It says our perception is limited, but we can make
what we can out of it.
MARSHALL: Until you reach your level of incompetence.
MARSHALL: That's from a book called The Peter Principle. I think I remember it;
"In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence." It's the
idea that if you do a good job, they promote you. But in modern society you get
promoted into something different than what you got promoted for. You keep
getting promoted until you reach your level of incompetence, then you stop. And
whoever promoted you won't put you back to where you were actually useful
because that would mean admitting they made a mistake promoting you.
QuoteHILDE: Are you familiar with the new or neo-Discordians? Steve Jackson,
Reverend Uncle BadTouch, Rev. DrJon, Professor Mu-Chao, Professor Cramulus, High
Priestess Elestria, Rev. St. Syn, St. Verthaine the Goth, St. Mae?
MARSHALL: Not really. But that doesn't mean anything as I haven't kept up. I
recognize some of those names from that Intermittens magazine you showed me;
more professional than anything we did. Nice new jakes and classic mindfucks,
Thornley's and Quinn's. And I liked the story about the sheep. (The magazine
issue was number 7 and has my first interview with Richard Marshall. "Mutton
Chops" is by Nigel.--P.H.)
QuoteWe envision the Library of Discordia being an activist center and gathering place for thinking people with an emphasis on materials that help individuals cast off the yoke of menial employment and develop their livelihoods. And a cafe would be nice too. With fair trade coffee of course...
This current goal is only for the acquisition of materials ONLY, for the library. The library building itself will be funded later once the collection of large enough to fill a space worth opening to the public. The size of an independent book store at least.
Quote...we welcome any and all contributions to the library we can possibly get. Write directly to this page for a mailing address to send us materials.
Ms Taylor and three other International Criminal Court (ICC) envoys have been placed in "preventive detention" in Zintan for 45 days as Libya investigates allege threats to its national security.
The four-member legal team for Muammar Gaddafi's son, Seif al-Islam, has been held since Thursday in the western town after Ms Taylor was found carrying documents for Seif that were considered a "threat to national security".
Earlier on Wednesday, Foreign Minister Bob Carr said the Australian lawyer was in good spirits despite the fact she was facing a lengthy prison spell.
A megatrend is a collection of trends, patterns of economic, social or environmental activity that will change the way people live and the science and technology products they demand.
The five interrelated megatrends identified in the report are:
More from less. This relates to the world's depleting natural resources and increasing demand for those resources through economic and population growth. Coming decades will see a focus on resource use efficiency.
A personal touch. Growth of the services sector of western economies is being followed by a second wave of innovation aimed at tailoring and targeting services.
Divergent demographics. The populations of OECD countries are ageing and experiencing lifestyle and diet related health problems. At the same time there are high fertility rates and problems of not enough food for millions in poor countries.
On the move. People are changing jobs and careers more often, moving house more often, commuting further to work and travelling around the world more often.
i World. Everything in the natural world will have a digital counterpart. Computing power and memory storage are improving rapidly. Many more devices are getting connected to the internet.
Five megatrends, resulting from 19 identified at the Trendy Thinking workshop, that will change the way we live and the science and technology we need.
A global risk, or 'megashock', is a significant and sudden event; the timing and magnitude of which are very hard to predict.
The report identified eight megashocks relevant to Australian science:
asset price collapse
slowing Chinese economy
oil and gas price spikes
extreme climate change related weather
QuoteThere is a periodical, preserved at the University of Michigan's famous Labadie Collection, that seems to make an unlikely fit with the purpose of that special archive, which is to preserve anarchist materials in particular, as well as those of other social movements, including sexual freedom and gay liberation. It is the NAMBLA Bulletin, which has been published monthly since 1983 by the North American Man-Boy Love Association. "Man-boy Love" is a term used by apologists of paedophilia. I hereafter use the term paedophilia where such people would object to its use. But why was a paedophile magazine acquired by an archive with such a charter? Most people would argue that "Man-Boy Love" is not an issue relating to gay culture at all, since paedophilia occurs no more or less frequently among gays than it does with straights. Very few people of any politics consider adult-child sex to be a legitimate lifestyle choice. But the former curator who added NAMBLA Bulletin to the Labadie was actually keeping to the central mission of the anarchist archive when he subscribed to the journal.
Beginning with the July-August 1985 issue, the magazine carried a long series of items by Hakim Bey, who was already a distinctly anarchist writer. Most of them were discussions of the paedophile obsession with a clear anarchist slant. Anarchist ideology was the mode of justification, the method of persuading children to have sex and to keep it secret.
QuotePope OldBoyfloats: Do you consider what you wrote in your book, Prankster and the Conspiracy, about Kerry's predisposition towards sex with children to be metaphorical, satirical, or dog gone truth?
Adam Gorightly: Well, there are plenty of metaphors and satire in The Prankster and the Conspiracy, but the question you've asked falls more into the category of "dog gone truth", although what the complete truth is regarding Kerry Thornley--in regards to many unanswered questions--who knows? And "truth" is something that can change, and will change, with the more information you process. So "truth" is a word I have issues with, as it's so damn subjective, and nobody's "truth" will ever be quite the same as the next persons. I just reported the story of Kerry Thornley as best I could, but as with so many questions concerning Kerry, the verdict is still out,such as: did he meet with Oswald in New Orleans; was he involved in the JFK assassination; was he a victim of mk-ultra mind control—or all the above. We'll probablynever know for sure—we can only speculate. But to answer your question, I wouldn't say that Kerry had a predisposition towards sex with children. However, he was an idealist about all matters sexual, and his philosophy was documented pretty thoroughly in a series of magazine articles he wrote in the early 1970's entitled Erotic Minority Liberation, where he defended nearly every sexual taboo, including exhibitionists, voyeurs, fetishists, pedophiles, transvestites, nymphomaniacs, obscene phone callers, animal lovers and sadomasochists. Now, I wouldn't classify Kerry as a pedophile, as the only documented instance--which I wrote about in the book--occurred in the early 1970's with Grace Zabriskie's daughter, Marion. It was an episode where Kerry fondled Marion, who was 8 years old at the time. Knowing what I do about Kerry, he probably thought it was all good, letting nature take its course, that type of thing.Just all part of this philosophical approach he had to sex. Perhaps, he was simply experimenting, wanting to try at least everything once. Kerry, if anything, was naïve. I don't think he was manipulative,or a predator.
QuoteThe inner workings of a libertarian thinktank working to discredit the established science on climate change have been exposed by a leak of confidential documents detailing its strategy and fundraising networks.
DeSmogBlog, which broke the story, said it had received the confidential documents from an "insider" at the Heartland Institute, which is based in Chicago. The blog monitors industry efforts to discredit climate science.
The scheme includes spending $100,000 for spreading the message in K-12 schools that "the topic of climate change is controversial and uncertain - two key points that are effective at dissuading teachers from teaching science", the documents said.
It was not possible to immediately verify the authenticity of the documents, although Heartland issued a statement on Wednesday claiming at least one document was fake, and that it was the victim of theft and forgery. However, Anthony Watts, a weathercaster who runs one of the most prominent anti-science blogs, Watts Up With That?, acknowledged Heartland was helping him with $90,000 for a new project. He added: "They do not regularly fund me nor (sic) my WUWT website, I take no salary from them of any kind."
