Americans, please sign this petition and contact your representatives against the EARNIT Act, which bans encryption and tries to interfere with freedom of expression. They US already uses the NSA to watch everything on the internet, now they're trying make us all into criminals for our apps using encryption to safekeep our passwords. The NSA wants to be able to read inside all the encrypted stuff they previously have not been able to read. The government is trying to pass it through now while the world is distracted with the corona virus pandemic.

Rising #tides will leave no choice for #US millions

In the year 2000, a third of all the planet’s urban land was in a zone vulnerable to #flood. By 2040, this could rise to 40%. In 2010, in the US, more than 120m citizens – that is nearly 40% of the entire population – lived in coastal counties. By 2020, this proportion could already be higher.
And by 2100, at least 13.1m people could be living on land likely to be inundated if #SeaLevelRise by 1.8 metres...

It doesn’t really matter that #Putin wants to interfere in the #US #election. Of course he does.
What matters is what the candidates, including the #president, do about it.

R.I.P. Kirk Douglas, the Ragman's Son

December 9, 1916 - February 5, 2020 (aged 103)


WIKI:
Douglas was born Issur Danielovitch (Yiddish: איסר דניאלאָוויטש‎; Belarusian: Ісур Данілавіч) in Amsterdam, New York, the son of Bryna "Bertha" (née Sanglel; 1884–1958) and Herschel "Harry" Danielovitch (c. 1884–1950; citations regarding his exact year of birth differ). His parents were Jewish immigrants from Chavusy, Mogilev Region, in the Russian Empire (present-day Belarus), and the family spoke Yiddish at home.

His father's brother, who immigrated earlier, used the surname Demsky, which Douglas's family adopted in the United States.

Douglas grew up as Izzy Demsky and legally changed his name to Kirk Douglas before entering the United States Navy during World War II.

In his 1988 autobiography, The Ragman's Son, Douglas notes the hardships that he, along with six sisters and his parents, endured during their early years in Amsterdam, New York:

My father, who had been a horse trader in Russia, got himself a horse and a small wagon, and became a ragman, buying old rags, pieces of metal, and junk for pennies, nickels, and dimes.... Even on Eagle Street, in the poorest section of town, where all the families were struggling, the ragman was on the lowest rung on the ladder. And I was the ragman's son.

Logistics, geopolitical #ecology, and the #carbon boot‐print of the US military

Our geopolitical ecology framework interrogates the material‐ecological metabolic flows that shape #geopolitical and #geoeconomic power relations. We argue that to account for the #US #military as a major #climate actor, one must understand the logistical supply chain that makes consumption of #hydrocarbon‐based #fuels possible.
