'Science is under attack. The dark forces of anti-intellectualism have taken power, and one by one, various federal research agencies are being silenced, banned from discussing their research online in any capacity. Although their Twitter accounts are still active, references to climate change and environmentalism have been purged.

Wow! For Land Reform anoraks such as myself, this last week or so has been truly inspiring. Behind Scottish Independence itself, Scottish Land Reform surely has to be the next biggest ticket on the agenda. I've posted before on the landmark Land Reform Group report, but it now looks like the SNP Government with Nicola 'The Sturge' Sturgeon at the helm is really pushing to make things happen. Hell, it's almost 'cool' to be discussing the future of our land, rather than the likes of me ranting on about it in a bothy to anyone who will listen.

This is old news in conspiracy circles but things are heating up. There's a new film coming out called Kill The Messenger. Glenn Greewald has just posted about the CIA/Cocaine connection on his blog The Intercept.
'Scientists at IBM Research have created by far the most advanced neuromorphic (brain-like) computer chip to date. The chip, called TrueNorth, consists of 1 million programmable neurons and 256 million programmable synapses across 4096 individual neurosynaptic cores. Built on Samsung’s 28nm process and with a monstrous transistor count of 5.4 billion, this is one of the largest and most advanced computer chips ever made. Perhaps most importantly, though, TrueNorth is incredibly efficient: The chip consumes just 72 milliwatts at max load, which equates to around 400 billion synaptic operations per second per watt - or about 176,000 times more efficient than a modern CPU running the same brain-like workload, or 769 times more efficient than other state-of-the-art neuromorphic approaches. Yes, IBM is now a big step closer to building a brain on a chip.

I know U.S. wars may seem like old news but this is well worth the time. It's the kind of dark absurdity that you can't actually laugh out loud at because you know the horrible reality but I'll bet you'll place both hands on your face and shake your head back and forth mumbling WTF? The first thing that came to mind reading this article is the book Catch-22. I'm going to have to read that again.

Algorithmic Filtering is a good enough term but I think someone needs to dumb it down so everyone can understand exactly what's going on here. I may be overstating the obvious but I like to be completely clear. People tend to ignore wild eyed conspiracy nuts screaming on the sidewalk. I also strive for simplicity and readability. Just imagine the next paragraph is written all in caps. Something like...

Is Edward Snowden a disinformation agent? What would be the motive? Could it be a test to study our reaction when confronted with the fact the NSA is actually spying on Americans? Maybe they knew it was going to come out eventually and wanted to control the leak? Or frighten everyone into submission to put a chilling effect on what we say and do online? Ease us into the truth before they trash the Bill of Rights? I'm revisiting a year old conspiracy I thought was total bunk when I first heard the idea but now it seems somewhat believable.

This article came out two days ago. Maybe you've seen it. Here at Media Underground we don't post too many stories that hit the mainstream but I had to post this just to prove I'm not making this shit up. And by the way I looked all over for an article with the downside to this new app or even a realistic take but they all seemed to have very little or no problem with it. I suppose it doesn't matter anymore if we live under the umbrella of a New Techno Stasi. People are watching it live, these psychopaths are shaking it right in our face and no one cares. And you don't need an army of riot police when the people are this apathetic.

'Here we go again. The latest IPCC report, the US National Climate Assessment report, and a report published by US military researchers all recently warned us yet again about the risks associated with human-caused climate change. While the planet continues to warm, ice continues to melt, and sea levels continue to rise, the conservative media are trying to distract everyone from these scientific realities with a shiny quarter named Lennart Bengtsson.

With the current system of Common Agricultural Policy farm subsidies (CAP) ending next year, the Scottish Government is currently looking at the system that shovels vast amounts of public money to landowners and 'slipper farmers' (i.e. people who own or rent land but do not even own a pair of wellies let alone farm anything, yet still receive a shitload of cash for doing fuck all).

Today could turn out to be an historic day for Scotland. At last, the way our land is owned, used, traded and subsidised is being put under some long overdue close scrutiny. There is still an awful long way to go before meaningful Land Reform takes place - and powerful vested interests will need to be taken on - but this is undoubtedly a step in the right direction.

You've got to hand it to NASA for taking the time to answer this little kid's questions and potentially inspiring him to pursue a path of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in the future.
That said, the NASA engineer - at the end of the video - doesn't explain how to get on with your classmates if all your classmates are fucking assholes. But otherwise this is a very inspiring video methinks.

The UN has finally put a serious boot into the Catholic Church/Vatican/Holy See - or whatever bullshit name that the other Italian mafia is using these days - about their appalling response to their child-abuse scandal. UN-speak usually consists of a turn of phrase that is oblique and inquisitive and often not in good old plain English. So, it was refreshing to read this latest report using some no-nonsense language - into the vile crimes committed by this rotten institutionalized religion - that basically says: "Oi Holy See, NO!"

'Earthrise, a photograph considered by many to be one of the most important photographs ever taken, has until now been only a photograph. But, for the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 8 mission that yielded the photo, NASA has digitally recreated the moment when astronaut William Anders captured it using CG imagery and audio from inside the Apollo module itself. "The video allows anyone to virtually ride with the astronauts and experience the awe they felt at the vista in front of them," writes NASA in its announcement blog post.

'Our universe is a hologram. That’s the latest theory from numerous accredited scientists. In an article published recently in the science journal Nature, “compelling evidence” is provided by multiple studies that our universe may operate as a hologram. The evidence found by the studies, say experts, confirms some of the previous data found for string theory; a model for how the universe works that was born out of theoretical physics and proposed to the scientific community as far back as the 1960s.
