    In response, companies like IBM, Intel, HP and more have spent billions trying to create an optoelectric chip that would compute electronically, but use light to move information. They haven't had much luck. These researchers in Sydney decided that, instead of changing the chip, they'd change the information. “For to become a commercial reality, photonic data on the chip needs to be slowed down so that they can be processed, routed, stored and accessed,” Moriz Merklein, one of the researchers on the team, said in a statement issued by the University of Sydney. So with this new technology, today's computers would be able to process data in the form of photons, instead of electrons. Data would start as photons traveling at the speed of light, slow to the speed of sound to be read and processed by a computer chip, and changed back into the speed of light. It works by allowing data to enter the computer chip as a photonic pulse of light and interact with another pulse to produce the sound wave that stores the data. Another pulse of light accesses the sound data, and turns it back into light. More at: https://uk.news.yahoo.com/turning-light-sound-could-speed-203627463.html

    As had been expected, the deal triggered the anger of the United States and other NATO members. The US had long been warning Turkey against the deal. "We have relayed our concerns to Turkish officials regarding the potential purchase of the S-400. A NATO interoperable missile defense system remains the best option to defend Turkey from the full range of threats in its region," Pentagon spokesman Johnny Michael said in a statement. Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, asked the US administration to assess how the deal might affect Turkey’s NATO membership and US security assistance to Ankara, which includes weapons sales. He issued the warning on September 14 in a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. According to him, the deal violated a bill signed into law in August that imposes sanctions "on any person that conducts a significant transaction with the Russian Federation’s defense or intelligence sectors." The idea of introducing sanctions against Turkey has been on the EU’s agenda for quite some time. The announcement of the deal with Russia came after German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said his country was suspending all major arms exports to Turkey because of the deteriorating human rights situation in the country and the increasingly strained ties. Gabriel added he believed that Turkey had also abandoned NATO’s common values. The idea of economic sanctions against Turkey is quite popular in Germany.

    According to sources, the policy includes gradually limiting diplomatic relations with US, reducing mutual cooperation on terrorism-related issues and non- cooperation in US strategy for Afghanistan. Pakistan is ready with a tough diplomatic policy if the US imposes any sanctions on it or lowers Islamabad’s major non-NATO ally status over failure to crack down on militants, according to a media report. Pakistan’s new strategy comes after US President Donald Trump, while unveiling his new policy for South Asia and Afghanistan, criticised Pakistan for providing safe havens to militants. A day after Trump’s announcement, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggested that US could downgrade Islamabad’s status as a major non-NATO ally if it does not crack down on militants. The Express Tribune reported that the Pakistan government has prepared a three-option ‘toughest diplomatic policy’. According to official sources, the policy includes gradually limiting diplomatic relations with the US, reducing mutual cooperation on terrorism-related issues and non- cooperation in US strategy for Afghanistan.

    It sort of factors actually. If it wasn't for America's learned obsession with race, public schooling might be better off than it is today. Public schooling is couched in the idealism that we're blank slates, and therefore the State, in order to teach a more perfect Union, can take children from their parents and herd them into fortresses, with the goal of brainwashing them to identify by the traits of skin-deep granfalloons. Religion and Ethnos are wiped clean, so governments can force new identities, ones which they have political control over, onto each new generation. A people with no Ethnos and no Religion have no heritage and leave no legacy. Sheep to the slaughter. The African-American is totally owned by the Nanny Statists. When they get smart about these cynical power games, like Malcolm X, first they're ostracized then they're assassinated, to die martyrs for the very people they fought. So there is systemic racism to it, but nobody's looking at racism as the snake oil it is. We're taught, because the State-taught racism's bottled in identity politics, that its OK - Nanny Statist's gonna cure us of bigotry, and all this other manufactured up bullshit. The only solution is for parents to teach their own children how to teach themselves. If they can't do that, they might as well give up their issue to adoption, because their kids will be in the system their whole lives anyway.

    goldenequity I found some more goodies, like 40 pages of OSS-CCP collusion, and an account of Mao's rise to power within the CCP and Republic of China: all thanks to the Brits, Soviets, and Americans. Good information specific to the Japanese point of view is hard to come by, but there is scattered info out there. These are some well documented accounts, I'm kind of surprised, but I shouldn't be - I'm a Westerner, and this is Asian history.

    it took about 10 minutes for the White House to deny the WSJ report, with the NYT and Bloomberg reporting that a White House spokesman has denied the WSJ story claiming US might stay in Paris accords, saying "position hasn't changed." Bloomberg confirms the White House comment, stating that there is "no change" in the US position on the Paris Deal, and that US will withdraw unless presented with "more favorable terms." Sarah Sanders‏Verified account @PressSec Our position on the Paris agreement has not changed. potuS has been clear, US withdrawing unless we get pro-America terms. 2:32 PM - 16 Sep 2017 https://twitter.com/PressSec/status/...s-agreement%2F

    When two of the establishment's leading propaganda organs run screeds attacking critics of government schools in as many months, you know something is going on. On the heels of a recent piece in the New York Times trying to smear public school critics comes a new piece in The Atlantic worrying that public support for government-controlled education is imploding. And it is. The establishment is right to be concerned. Government education has been the most crucial weapon in furthering the agenda to “fundamentally transform” America, as Obama put it, away from a constitutional republic based on Judeo-Christian values toward a collectivist global society. But now, the American people are starting to wake up, as evidenced by the surging number of homeschool students. Whether it is too late remains to be seen.

    Now, the snowflake class is writing articles stating Ron Paul – the former Texas congressman that made a career out of criticizing bloated defense budgets and hawkish foreign policy decisions – is shilling for the defense industry. Their “evidence” is that he received five-year-old campaign contributions from some employees of Boeing and Lockheed Martin, which they falsely credited with coming directly from the companies themselves. Dr. Paul’s alleged wrongdoing was writing an op-ed mildly critical of Elon Musk, a government subsidy-eating machine and poster boy for left-wing environmental causes. In the article, Paul, an Air Force veteran, expressed his opposition to Section 1615 of the National Defense Authorization Agreement (NDAA), which many speculate was written with the congressional intent of quietly extinguishing all serious competition to Musk’s SpaceX. Section 1615 would bar the Air Force from funding any new launch vehicles. Coincidentally, in just a few short years, there will only be one established launch vehicle left in the marketplace -- Musk’s SpaceX. If the NDAA is passed as is, it will stay that way for a long while. More at: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-18/elon-musk-sycophants-attack-ron-paul-shill-defense-industry
