We already have 1,000 would-be Mozarts who instead of learning music and honing their skills are doing shit jobs for shit wages. They're spending their time just surviving instead of blessing the rest of us with music we'd love.

What these would-be Mozarts need is basic income.

The #nuclear reactors on submarines are designed for sustained #power generation to propel the vessel, rather than a single explosive release like the atomic #bomb.

This allows them to be much larger and more powerful than the compact nuclear weapons developed during World War II.

For those keeping track at home, reactors orders of magnitude more powerful than bombs over Hiroshima or Nagasaki are floating around in the world’s oceans and seas.

Right now.

The prosecutors derided that assertion as “not based on any facts,” adding that it was a “justification that was concocted more than a year after” #Trump left the WH.

“It would be pure fiction,” the prosecutors wrote, “to suggest that highly #ClassifiedDocuments created by members of the #intelligence community & #military & presented to the president of the United States during his term in office were ‘purely private.’”

Why US #counterintelligence appear to be working for the thugs #ChristoFascists #WhiteChristianNationalist?

After obstructionist Bill Barr completely covered-up the Trump-Russia investigation in a way that let criminal defendant Donald skate, US Intelligence now has told us that Russians are involved in using a variety of technologies, including ultrasound, microwave weapons, pesticides, and toxins on our diplomats and intelligence personnel.

Why exactly is American counterintelligence so dead-set on protecting the Kremlin and those close to it?

These techniques are subtle & far more skillful than what #Russia attempted in 2016, when it made up FB posts or tweets in the names of nonexistent Americans, & used them to fuel protests over #immigration or other hot-button issues.

The loosely linked “#Doppelgänger” creates fake versions of real news websites in the #UnitedStates, #Israel, #Germany & #Japan, among other countries. It often promotes websites previously associated w/ Russia’s #military #intelligence agency, known as the #GRU.

Entendu ce matin à la radio sur France Musique un neurologue parler de la théorie selon laquelle l'écoute de Mozart rendrait plus intelligent. Théorie qui est... fausse.
L'étude a été contredite par d'autres études depuis avec du Mozart et d'autres musiques (Blur par exemple) .
En fait l'écoute de musique destresse et permet entre autres de mieux répondre aux tests de QI de façon plus détendue donc d'avoir de meilleures réponses.
Et la musique qui destresse le mieux est liée au ressenti personnel. Ça me fait bien plaisir d'apprendre que si les chants de baleines me hérissent et que le metal me détend c'est lié à ma culture et mon ressenti. 😉

En fait écouter de la musique ne rend pas plus intelligent mais plus heureux. 😊

The terrible human toll in Gaza has many causes.
A chilling investigation by +972 highlights efficiency:

  1. An engineer: “When a 3-year-old girl is killed in a home in Gaza, it’s because someone in the army decided it wasn’t a big deal for her to be killed.”

  2. An AI outputs "100 targets a day". Like a factory with murder delivery:

"According to the investigation, another reason for the large number of targets, and the extensive harm to civilian life in Gaza, is the widespread use of a system called “Habsora” (“The Gospel”), which is largely built on artificial intelligence and can “generate” targets almost automatically at a rate that far exceeds what was previously possible. This AI system, as described by a former intelligence officer, essentially facilitates a “mass assassination factory.”"

  1. "The third is “power targets,” which includes high-rises and residential towers in the heart of cities, and public buildings such as universities, banks, and government offices."

It was easier to locate the individuals in their private houses.

“We were not interested in killing operatives only when they were in a military building or engaged in a military activity. On the contrary, the IDF bombed them in homes without hesitation, as a first option. It’s much easier to bomb a family’s home. The system is built to look for them in these situations.”
