Radiation in parts of #MarshallIslands is higher than Chernobyl

Radiation levels in parts of the Marshall Islands in the central #Pacific Ocean, where the #US conducted nearly 70 nuclear tests during the #ColdWar, are still alarmingly high. #ColumbiaUniversity researchers tested soil samples on four uninhabited isles and discovered that they contained concentrations of nuclear isotopes that are significantly higher than those found near #Chernobyl and #Fukushima.

"Only" 15 stories tall, but filling a whole city-block, the NY Port Authority building has for much is it's history been the largest building by volume in Manhattan.

Facebook-Verhandlung: US-Datenboykott wegen NSA-Überwachung nötig

 
Ich finde es ja immer wieder schade, dass sich #XMPP nicht als DER Messenger durchgesetzt hat... aus technisch funktionaler Sicht, also aus meiner als Anwender ist XMPP mittlerweile besser als diese ganzen mobilen Messenger und dennoch nutzen die Menschen lieber diese. Schlechter, wahrscheinlich unsicherer, zentralisiert, weniger Funktionen, Beschränkungen und nicht quelloffen, aber macht mal weiter so, irgendwann dreht dann jemand diese Messenger ab oder schaltet die Verschlüsselung mit Hintertüre ein.

#WhatsApp und #Signal sind #US Unternehmen, wenn #Trump nicht mehr möchte, dass die Welt darüber sicher kommuniziert, dann wird er das einfach umsetzen.

Keine Ahnung wo die ganzen anderen Messenger #Telegram, #Viber oder wie sie alle heißen her kommen, aber es sind immer Einzelunternehmen die einem nationalen Rechtssystem unterworfen sind, wohingegen jeder (wirklich jeder!) einen eigenen XMPP Server betreiben kann und einen Client seiner Wahl nutzen kann. Diese Clients sind oft Open Source (#OSS) und nicht an bestimmte Länder gebunden, der Code kann in jedem Land verbreitet und weiterentwickelt werden.

 
Like the UK ambassador to the US, the US ambassador to the UK has had memo's leaked too ;-)

It is in the Economist, so it must be true.

The ambassador demonstrated the culinary quality of American chlorinated chicken, but it seems May did not like it, nor was she able to cope with the bourbon. The ambassador did not notice, however, anything going wrong: "I think she liked it, and she has nice manners: when she clears her throat, she lifts her napkin up to her mouth and coughs straight into it."

To top it all up, he has a bit of advice to the US government: "You don’t have to get elected by the people to be in charge here, just by the Conservative Party. That’s 160,000 old right-wing men. Interesting system. You might want to look into it."

Bedeuten Menschenrechte noch irgendetwas?

After military exercise to welcome returned parents, school principal hires pole dancer

“The District Education Bureau believes that it is not appropriate to perform pole dancing for children in kindergartens,” it pointed out.
Seriously, it isn't? I thought this was completely appropriate to do! I really can't understand what is all the fuss about hiring a pole dancer to welcome the returned parents who continued to bring their children to this kindergarten. I mean, they should be given something too in return to the fees they might pay to bring their children there.
But seriously, what is wrong with this principal, what did she think about when she hired a pole dancer for this event? Did she think it would be anything funny? Or did she just want to raise some attention for her kindergarten?
He said that he and his wife had already had concerns about the kindergarten before it closed for the summer, when the children had been subjected to ten days of military “activities” that included displays of machine guns and mortars at the door.
Yeah, this might have surprised some of the parents whose children participated in these exercises, but I mean... No, I don't have anything more to say about this. This is completely freaked out.
“Pole dancing is by nature sexy and flirtatious, and by that measure, it is for the eyes of adults, not young children,” said an anonymous user on Weibo, a popular Twitter-like microblog in China, reported Reuters.
That's why you would not call pole dancing just "dancing," like in a waltz, or a Charleston. I wouldn't even be too sure about bellydancing, but this is up to the artist, and not me.

Deranged Donald wishes troops "Happy Memorial Day" because he apparently doesn't know what happened on this day in American history

“I have to wish you all a very happy Memorial Day,” Drumpf said. “On this Memorial Day evening in the United States, Americans are concluding a sacred day of remembrance, reflection and prayer.”
You know he either isn't fluent in his mother tongue, or he really doesn't feel like he wants to "wish" his own country's soldiers a "happy Memorial Day," when he says that he has to.
Before appearing on the USS Wasp, Drumpf and first lady Melania Drumpf visited a Japanese destroyer, the J.S. Kaga, docked nearby. Standing alongside Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Drumpf delivered the same “happy Memorial Day” message to the Japanese forces.
As an American, you might be surprised that he tells the Japanese army a happy Memorial Day, but in Donnie's world, this is totally fine and doesn't imply any lack of knowledge in history.
The visit also allowed Drumpf and Abe to spend hours of time together on the golf course, at a sumo wrestling match and in meetings discussing trade, North Korea’s nuclear program, Iran and other bilateral issues.
