  2. Time For Hungrexit: PM Orban Opposes Mass Immigration In Hungary, Attacks Soros In German Press JANUARY 11, 2018 By Brandon Turbeville Source Link: https://www.activistpost.com/2018/01/time-for-hungrexit-pm-orban-opposes-mass-immigration-in-hungary-attacks-soros-in-german-press.html Viktor Orban has caused shockwaves amongst the EU and the European establishment in recent years and has subsequently drawn the wrath of that establishment, resulting in an attempted color revolution in Hungary. Orban survived that attempt, however, and is continuing to “trigger” the EU with his refusal to destroy his country and culture with mass immigration and his open condemnation of George Soros and the destabilization empire Soros has maintained in Eastern Europe for decades. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, head of the most oppressive Communo-Fascist country in Europe, has repeatedly promoted the policy of mass migration to Germany (as well as the policy to end free speech and dissent) and has stood in direct contrast to any leader that expresses concern over the influx of “refugees,” the overwhelming majority of whom are economic migrants. While Germany has essentially uprooted its own country and taken in millions of immigrants (with no real attempts at assimilation), Hungary has refused to take in any, even building an electric border fence to keep the mass of immigrants from passing through Hungary. In an interview with Bild, a German news agency, Orban made his statements regarding mass migration. The exchange went as follows: Obviously, the Hungarian Prime Minister has many problems and the occasional accurate statement does not equal the necessity to pretend that Orban is the savior of Hungary. However, in this instance, he is acting in the best interests of his country. Though many take issue with his labeling of migrants as “Muslim invaders” considering the fact that Western invaders have been terrorizing Africa and the Middle East for nearly a century, he does have a point. Hungarian culture and the culture of the migrants attempting to enter Hungary are very different and, when facing one another in large numbers, they do create “parallel societies” which benefit neither the host or migrant population. These massive numbers do not assimilate but merge together in their own neighborhoods and thus an internal “second nation” is formed. This second nation can be used for cheap labor and a battering ram against the first nation for political purposes by oligarchical forces and, without a doubt, it leads to the disintegration of national culture and the breakup of society. Likewise, his statements regarding George Soros have attracted a lot of European attention. When asked about his previous actions to limit Soros’ influence, the exchange took place as follows: Again, Orban is correct. Germany does not have more freedom of the press than Hungary nor does it have more freedom than virtually anyone else besides, perhaps, North Korea and Saudi Arabia. He is also correct to point out that the captain of the Color Revolution Industrial Complex has been launching a war against Hungary and Orban himself for the past several years. Indeed, Orban and Hungary are not the only Soros targets either since Soros’ networks at operating all across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Of course, Orban isn’t expressing any deep understanding of what is happening across the world, how the West has destabilized and destroyed much of the Middle East and Africa, or how the European Union is totalitarian iron curtain, but the fact that his basic statements have generated such controversy in both Germany and the rest of Europe is a testament to just how far Europe has fallen. Even the basic logic that Hungarians have a right to have their own Hungarian culture and the right to control who comes in and out of their borders is considered heresy. This, unfortunately is the extent to which Europeans themselves have become neutered. Even among the general population, particularly in Germany, there does not even seem to be the concept of self-preservation. Germans, for instance, while screaming “never again” in regards to their Nazi past, have descended into outright Communo-Fascism, with not even the basic rights of freedom of speech, expression, or thought remaining. Anyone who has the audacity to speak plainly or speak openly about what is happening to their country is labeled a thought/speech criminal and silenced immediately. The result of Orban’s heresy, if lived up to, will be the maintaining of a Hungarian Hungary while the rest of Europe falls apart. But while Orban’s statements are largely correct, the Bild interviewer asked a pertinent question. If the EU is giving you so many problems, why don’t you leave? In fact, that question and sentiment was echoed by Guy Verhofstadt, member of the EU parliament, who said “The European Union was built to guarantee our citizens’ freedom, democracy and the rule of law. If the Hungarian and Polish governments want to build closed and illiberal societies, they must do it outside the EU.” Ignoring the erroneous first part of that statement, Verhofstadt’s suggestion is valid and so is Bild’s question. The EU has imposed innumerable unnecessary regulations on its member states, Malthusian “climate change” provisions, clamped down on free speech, engaged in political bullying, is undemocratic, and has flooded Europe with so many immigrants some countries now seem to belong on another continent. So why stay? Britain left the EU. Hungary could do it, too. In fact, Hungary would be much better off outside the European iron curtain, provided it would nationalize its central bank, end neo-liberal “free trade” policies, and begin investing in its own infrastructure. If Orban truly wants the best for Hungary, he should ironically take the queue from Verhofstadt and leave the EU. We’ve had Brexit. Now it’s time for Hungrexit.

  3. A Neutron Star Hiding Out Near a Black Hole Is Pelting Earth with Radio Waves By Charles Q. Choi, Live Science Contributor | January 10, 2018 Source Link: https://www.livescience.com/61392-outer-space-pulses-strike-earth.html?utm_source=notification New work probes the extraterrestrial source of incredibly powerful explosions of radio waves, investigating why that spot is the only known location to repeatedly burst with these blasts. These repeating bursts may come from a dense stellar core called a neutron star near an extraordinarily powerful magnetic field, such as one near a massive black hole, the study finds. Fast radio bursts, or FRBs, are intense pulses of radio waves lasting just milliseconds that can give off more energy in a fraction of a second than the sun does in hours, days or weeks. FRBs were discovered only in 2007, and while researchers have detected 20 or so FRBs in the past decade, they estimate that such flashes might occur as many as 10,000 times a day across the entire sky, researchers wrote in the study. [Inside a Neutron Star (Infographic)] Much remains a mystery about the origins of FRBs, because their brief nature makes it difficult to pinpoint where they come from. Among the possibilities that prior work suggested are cataclysmic events such as the evaporation of black holes and collisions between neutron stars. However, in 2016, scientists discovered that a fast radio burst known as FRB 121102 could release multiple bursts. "It is the only known repeating fast radio burst source," study co-lead author Jason Hessels, an astrophysicist at the University of Amsterdam, told Space.com. Snip
  4. Why Is Flu Season So Bad This Year? By Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer | January 8, 2018 Source Link: https://www.livescience.com/61365-flu-season-severe.html Flu season is off to an early — and severe — start, with rates of hospitalizations and deaths from flu higher than what's typical for this time of year. But why is the flu so bad this year? During the week that ended Dec. 30 (the most recent period for which data is available), 46 states reported widespread flu activity, up from 36 states the week before, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). At this time last year, just 12 states reported widespread flu activity. What's more, the rate of flu hospitalizations from the beginning of October to the end of December 2017 was about 14 hospitalizations per 100,000 people, according to CDC data. The rate was highest among adults ages 65 and older, at about 57 hospitalizations per 100,000 people. At this time last year, the rate of flu hospitalizations was just 5 hospitalizations per 100,000 people. The flu is notoriously unpredictable, with the timing, severity and length of flu season varying from year to year, according to the CDC. [6 Flu Vaccine Myths] But the relatively harsh season the U.S. is currently having is likely related to the particular flu strains that are circulating, said Dr. Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. "This year is particularly bad because it's dominated by the H3N2 [flu strain], which tends to be more severe and causes more severe symptoms than other strains of flu," Adalja told Live Science. Indeed, flu seasons in which the H3N2 strain predominates tend to have higher overall flu hospitalization and death rates, according to the CDC. Snip
  5. Hundreds of 'Boiled' Bats Fall from Sky in Australian Heat Wave By Stephanie Pappas, Live Science Contributor | January 8, 2018 Source Link: https://www.livescience.com/61372-boiled-bats-australia.html A pile of dead bats that "boiled" in Campbelltown in the Australian state of New South Wales. Credit: Help Save the Wildlife and Bushlands in Campbelltown More than 200 bats have lost their lives to southern Australia's ongoing heat wave. As temperatures rose to 111.5 degrees Fahrenheit (44.2 degrees Celsius) in Campbelltown in the Australian state of New South Wales, a colony of flying fox bats that lives near the town's train station felt the effects. Volunteers struggled to rescue the heat-stricken bats, according to the Campbelltown-Macarthur Advertiser, but at least 204 individual animals, mostly babies, died. "They basically boil," Kate Ryan, the colony manager for the Campbelltown bats, told the newspaper. "It affects their brain — their brain just fries and they become incoherent." [Watch for Falling Iguanas! Bomb Cyclone Drops Frozen Lizards] Rescuers with Help Save the Wildlife and Bushlands in Campbelltown posted on their Facebook page details of the dire situation: "As the dead bodies were recovered and placed in a pile for a head count the numbers had reached 200 not including the many hundreds that were still left in trees being unreachable, sadly a few adults were also included in the body count. It was a long and heartbreaking afternoon..." Heat and more heat The colony of flying foxes in Campbelltown belong to the species Pteropus poliocephalus, better known as the gray-headed flying fox. Their wingspans can stretch more than 3.3 feet (1 meter), and they can weigh more than 2.2 lbs. (1 kilogram). Important pollinators, the bats eat mainly nectar, pollen and fruit. Temperatures higher than 86 degrees F (30 degrees C) can be dangerous to young flying foxes, Ryan told the Advertiser, because their bodies lose the ability to regulate their temperature. For the Campbelltown colony, a lack of both water and shade exacerbates the problem, she said. Southern Australia's heat has reached far beyond 86 degrees F in the past several days. Most of New South Wales is experiencing a severe heat wave, according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. On Jan. 6, a weather station in the Sydney suburb of Penrith recorded a reading of 116.78 degrees F (47.1 degrees C), the hottest in the Sydney metro area since 1939, when a nearby station recorded a temperature of 118.04 degrees F (47.8 C). The most extreme heat is expected to abate in the coming days, though meteorologists said a lower-intensity heat wave will persist throughout much of the state of Queensland, northern New South Wales and southern Central Australia through at least Wednesday (Jan. 10).

  7. It’s not official, but sources say the secretive Zuma satellite was lost "As of right now reviews of the data indicate Falcon 9 performed nominally.” ERIC BERGER - 1/9/2018, 7:34 AM14 Source: arstechnica.com Link: https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/01/the-zuma-satellite-launched-by-spacex-may-be-lost-sources-tell-ars/ The Zuma satellite and Falcon 9 rocket on the launch pad. On Sunday night SpaceX launched the Zuma satellite into space. What we know for sure is that the first stage of the rocket behaved nominally enough such that it was able to safely return to Earth and make a land-based landing along the Florida coast. Snip Actions taken by SpaceX on Monday indicate its confidence in the rocket's performance during the Zuma launch. Earlier in the day, SpaceX founder Elon Musk shared photos of the nighttime launch on Twitter. Also, the company continued with preparations for future launches, including rolling the Falcon Heavy rocket back out to a different launch pad in Florida for additional tests.
  8. Is someone in North Korea mining Monero cryptocurrency using hacked computers? Published time: 8 Jan, 2018 22:38 Source: www.rt.com/news Link: https://www.rt.com/news/415306-north-korea-monero-malware/ A US cybersecurity firm claims it has found evidence of hacked computers sending coins to a North Korean university after being infected with cryptocurrency mining malware. But government-linked hackers are not behind the attacks. According to a report by the American cybersecurity firm AlienVault, the software hides itself among legitimate files and programs, and uses the computer in which its embedded itself to mine the cryptocurrency Monero. The mined coins are then sent on to a server based at Kim Il Sung University in Pyongyang. The malware – which installs itself as intelservice.exe in what is likely an attempt to hide among legitimate products from Intel Corp – was identified by AlienVault through a database of computer viruses put together by the Google subsidiary VirusTotal. Cryptocurrency mining needs a lot of operating power resulting in mounting electricity bills, which is why hackers often try to reassign the task to a network of compromised PC’s under their control.
