- “By 1985, Japan had a 10-year advantage over the US in software development. TRON would have merged Japanese software with Japanese hardware on computers worldwide. While the internet had its genesis in the ARPANET in 1969, Japan had begun operationalizing the Widely Integrated Distributed Environment (WIDE) system from 1988 onwards. WIDE interlinked a consortium of companies, universities, and public institutions for wide-area communications via the TCP/IP protocol in use today. At this juncture, the World Wide Web (WWW) was still a concept. TRON was a game-changer and that game had to be rigged. The US wanted future access to every networked device on Earth as a prelude to something more sinister. In 1989, after heavy lobbying from an upstart entity called Microsoft, TRON was subjected to the Super 301 sanctions which effectively excluded it from the US market. Although this action was deemed “temporary,” Japan was forced to apply the brakes on the TRON project or suffer consequences that one can only hypothesise in retrospect. (As a consolation, Sony was allowed to acquire a chunk of Hollywood).” ~ Dr. Mathew Maavak
- A new report has laid bare the relationship between Silicon Valley and the American state, and the trillions of dollars they have made since 9/11. In all, 86% of government contracts awarded to Amazon and 77% to Google to date are said to have been related to the War on Terror. Since 2004, at least $44.5 billion has flowed to Big Tech. The report calculates that sum could’ve provided food and nutrition aid to the entire population of Afghanistan 15 times over, ensured access to shelter, healthcare, food, and water to the entire population of Iraq 26 times over, or distributed over 108 billion pounds of food in Yemen. Instead, it funded endeavors such as Google’s Maven program, which used artificial intelligence to make drone strikes deadlier. Data analyzed only covers publicly available information too, so cited figures are “very likely an underrepresentation.”
- Delegates at the British Labour Party conference have been told that too many white men were putting their hands up to make contributions during a debate on housing and transport, leading some to question the direction of the party. Mark Ferguson, a member of Labour’s National Executive Committee and chairman of the session, noted his concern that people putting their hands up to speak were predominantly white men and urged them to let others speak.
- The Finnish Transport and Communications Agency appeared to have no list of blocked letter combinations when it comes to number plates, due to the fact that three-letter words are a scarcity in the Finnish language. Due to an oversight by the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency, hundreds of cars received registration plates with letters reading KUK, which is the vulgar word for male private parts in Swedish, one of the country’s official languages. The unexpected letter combination was met with a combination of anger and laughter. Salesman were reportedly instructed by the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency to inform everyone who gets a car with “cocky” plates that the letter combination is offensive in Swedish and that customers can therefore replace the registration plates free of charge.
- Multiple media outlets reported on Sunday that Iceland’s parliamentary elections propelled more women into the country’s legislature than men in a first for Europe. Reports citing local electoral officials put the number of would-be female lawmakers at 33, and men at 30. The updated tally, released late Sunday, however, showed that men will retain their fragile majority in the 63-seat parliament with 33 seats, AFP reported, citing the head of the electoral commission in one of the six Iceland’s constituencies, Ingi Tryggvasonmen.
- Recent investigations have shown that Big Tech companies has been aware of online sex trafficking for years. According to the 2020 Federal Human Trafficking Report, 59% of online victim recruitment in active sex-trafficking cases in the US last year occurred on Facebook. “Despite Facebook’s reputation as a less popular platform among teenagers, it was a more common platform for recruiting child victims than adult victims in 2020,” the report revealed. But ‘For Facebook, they’re clients with privacy rights’.
- A new seafood bowl proved instantly popular after it was put on the menu of the Cabinet Office’s cafeteria in Tokyo. What appears to be flavored salmon roe in the bowl consists of the Mizutamago mixture of powdered konjac and extract of sea tangles developed by a firm in Kumamoto Prefecture. The fake spawn was placed in soy sauce to replicate the actual roe’s taste and touch. It is also served at a “soba” noodle restaurant in Tokyo, starting in September. Meat, seafood and other zooidal food products are increasingly being replaced by their botanical counterparts amid the trend to increased environmental consciousness. Not only imitation meat made of soybeans but also cheese, eggs and even sashimi created from other ingredients have successively been pitched. As more consumers choose those alternatives, food makers hold high expectations for the new market.
- A herd of elephants have damaged paddy crops in Ward 1 of Mechinagar Municipality, Jhapa, Nepal. Breaching the electric fence on the Mechi River, wild tuskers from India entered the human settlement and rampaged paddy crops and human shelters. Wild tuskers have eaten, and damaged paddy in two bigha of the field owned by Lal Bahadur Moktan, Ramesh Bhujel, Nand Adhikari and Kailash Bhandari.National Nature Preservation Fund had installed electric fence on the banks of the Mechi River to stop the influx of wild tuskers from India six years ago. “The entry of wild elephants from India has given locals sleepless night,” said local Shankar Luitel adding, “It is very hard to save lives, let alone save the crops.”
- South Korea] President Moon Jae-in on Monday stressed the need for discussions about a ban on dog meat, renewing a decades-old dispute here over the slaughter of animals, especially dogs, for food. “Hasn’t the time come to prudently consider prohibiting dog meat consumption?” the president asked Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum during their weekly meeting, according to his spokesperson Park Kyung-mee. Moon made the comments after he was briefed on the government’s new measures to protect abandoned animals, including upgrading a registration system and inspecting all animal protection centers to check for abuse or neglect.
- The social media guru for Italy’s Matteo Salvini said on Monday (Sep 27) he had quit his post, key to building the far-right leader’s popularity, following media reports that he was under a narcotics investigation. Luca Morisi, 48, widely considered to have had a crucial role in cultivating Salvini’s “man of the people” image, denied committing any crime but said “the personal matter that concerns me represents a serious fall as a man”. A “digital philosopher, a social megaphone”, as Morisi describes himself in his Twitter profile, he managed a team spreading content across YouTube, Twitter and Instagram and through the Whatsapp and Telegram chat groups, using a specially designed matrix of software dubbed “the Beast”. Verona district prosecutor Angela Barbaglio sais on Monday that Morisi “has been inserted in the register of people under investigation for the alleged transfer of narcotic substances”.
- Widening power shortages in China have halted production at numerous factories including many supplying Apple and Tesla, while some shops in the northeast operated by candlelight and malls shut earlier as the economic toll of the squeeze mounted. Rationing has been implemented during peak hours in many parts of northeastern China since last week, and residents of cities including Changchun said cuts were occurring sooner and lasting for longer, state media reported. On Monday (Sep 27), State Grid Corp pledged to ensure basic power supply and avoid electricity cuts. China’s power crunch, caused by tight coal supplies and toughening emissions standards, has hurt production in industries across several regions and is dragging on the country’s economic growth outlook, analysts said.
- Tens of thousands of Chinese households who bought high-yield investments risk being sucked into the spectacular unravelling of China Evergrande Group after the embattled developer missed payments on funds sold through shadow banks, which have funnelled billions into its construction projects. Some of these lenders, known as trusts, have already dipped into their own pockets to repay wealthy investors on Evergrande’s behalf, according to people familiar with the matter. Others are negotiating payment extensions with Evergrande, said the people, asking not to be identified discussing private matters. It is not clear how much of the funds are in arrears and there is no evidence that trusts are passing payment delays on to customers who bought fixed-income products tied to Evergrande. Already, missed payments on 40 billion yuan (US$6.2 billion) of wealth products sold by Evergrande itself to retail investors have sparked nationwide protests, putting more pressure on Beijing to find a solution and avoid further unrest. Contagion into the US$3 trillion trust industry will put at risk many more investors, while also threatening the biggest source of non-bank funding for the property sector as shadow banks retreat.
- The Taliban government in Afghanistan appealed on Sunday (Sep 26) for international flights to be resumed, promising full cooperation with airlines and saying that problems at Kabul airport had been resolved. The statement from the foreign affairs ministry comes as the new administration has stepped up efforts to open up the country and gain international acceptance following the collapse of the Western-backed government last month. A limited number of aid and passenger flights have been operating from the airport. However, normal commercial services have yet to resume since it was closed in the wake of the chaotic evacuation of tens of thousands of foreigners and vulnerable Afghans that followed the Taliban’s seizure of the capital.
- The Taliban will have no choice other than to bend to the demands of Afghan women if they want to escape economic collapse and diplomatic isolation, a leading rights activist said. Seventy-three-year-old Mahbouba Seraj decided not to flee Kabul last month when the Taliban seized back power, two decades after they were ousted. Instead, from her home in Kabul, she has followed the Taliban’s mixed messages, trying to decipher what lies ahead for the women of her country whom she has dedicated her life to. “This is becoming like a nightmare for everybody,” she says. The Taliban have incrementally stripped away freedoms for women – excluding girls from secondary school, telling working women to stay home and unveiling an all-male government. They claim it is only temporary, but many are distrustful and recognise a repeat of history unfolding. “The first time, the Taliban had the same excuse, they said: ‘Wait, we’ll fix it for you,'” she said from her home in Kabul. “We waited for six years and it never came. There is no trust (in the Taliban) amongst the women of Afghanistan.” Many women, she says, are confused and under severe pressure, frightened to leave their homes and face Taliban harassment.
- Amid a growing number of reports from Navy pilots and other military personnel of witnessing highly advanced craft of unexplained origin, a recent intelligence report on the Defense Department’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) confirmed more than 140 reports of so-called “UFOs”. Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., who chairs the Armed Services Subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations, has pushed through a provision in the House of Representatives’ fiscal 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) proposal, passed Thursday, to form a permanent office under the Defense Secretary.
- A 30-year-old woman is facing up to nine years in prison for allegedly starting a wildfire in Shasta County, California, last week, which destroyed over 40 homes. The defendant, Alexandra Souverneva, has pleaded not guilty and explained that she had been hiking to the Canada border – after becoming thirsty, she apparently came across a puddle of what she thought was bear urine before making a fire to boil it.
