Oogesa Taro, a Japanese artist, activist and reporter went to Seattle to cover the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) and to show that the protest was non-violent. He left within 15 minutes having been severely beaten up. Taro, the organizer of a collaborative social art project called ‘Without Borders’, travelled to the US to explore the ongoing protests that erupted in the wake of the George Floyd killing by Minneapolis police. Reporting from the ground within the CHAZ, it didn’t take long before Taro was set upon and beaten up by some of the area’s less welcoming residents. Despite the unsavoury encounter and hostility, Taro’s indomitable spirit led him back to the scene of the crime. “Im back to prove that this is not a protest that affirms violence” he said. The plucky documentarian’s voyage into the heart of America’s civil unrest has generated a few chuckles online, with some sharing visual representations of Taro’s expectations versus reality.
Germany is still reeling from a massive child abuse scandal as it was revealed that Helmut Kentler long considered to be one of the “founders of modern sexology” in fact acted as a “matchmaker” for pedophiles by sending neglected children into their care under the passive eye of Berlin authorities. Helmut Kentler died back in 2008 at the venerable age of 80 and till the very end, he was considered a progressive thinker and a respectable member of the scientific community. At the time of his death Germany’s Tageszeitung daily called him a “meritorious fighter for a permissive sexual morality” in an obituary, while various human rights advocacy groups and even some protestant church authorities were vying with each other while praising his life achievements. It seems even more bizarre since Kentler himself admitted in the 1990s to sending children to live with pedophiles as part of an “experiment.” Kentler’s project, which some German media are now describing as nothing short of a powerful pedophile “network” in disguise, could not have lasted so long without tacit support of the authorities, a group of researchers that recently issued a report on the topic, believe. The man never made a secret of his views on the topic either as he repeatedly argued in his works that social stigma is virtually the only traumatizing part of a sexual relationship between an adult and a child.
NASA has raised the alarm over yet another five space rocks headed our way. Fortunately, researchers have also revealed a potentially ingenious new strategy for dealing with such threats should they come too close to Earth. However, much the same as the standard deflection methods which have long been considered but, of course, never actually tried, including using a nuclear weapon or a battering ram in the form of a rocket to nudge the space rock off course, early detection and action would be absolutely vital. Another week, another warning of impending asteroid activity in Earth’s vicinity, as at least five asteroids ranging in size from a small passenger jet to roughly the size of an apartment building are set to shoot past the Earth, three of which were only spotted in the last two months. The closest any of them will come to us is 1.2 million miles (1.9 million km) away. That’s five times the distance between the Earth and Moon.
Researchers reported on Monday that hackers are now exploiting Google’s Analytics service to stealthily pilfer credit card information from infected e-commerce sites. According to several independent reports from PerimeterX, Kaspersky, and Sansec, threat actors are now injecting data-stealing code on the compromised websites in combination with tracking code generated by Google Analytics for their own account, letting them exfiltrate payment information entered by users even in conditions where content security policies are enforced for maximum web security. “Attackers injected malicious code into sites, which collected all the data entered by users and then sent it via Analytics,” Kaspersky said in a report published yesterday. “As a result, the attackers could access the stolen data in their Google Analytics account.”
China launched the last satellite of the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) from Xichang, marking the completion of the deployment of its own global navigation system.
After decades of widespread use as company scientists played down research showing a definitive link between the product and growing rates of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, Monsanto parent company Bayer has agreed to pay up to $10 billion to settle claims that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, causes cancer.
Bayer inherited the glyphosate problems during its $60 billion acquisition of Monsanto. After losing three lawsuits, Bayer changed its strategy and abandoned its aggressive defense in favor of trying to negotiate a sweeping settlement of the tens of thousands of US lawsuits pending. Bayer holds numerous studies against the classification of the IARC and other researchers. The US environmental agency EPA supports the group and, despite the heated debate about glyphosate, has so far maintained that the controversial pesticide poses no health risk to people if used properly.
Central banks around the world are examining the use of digital currencies. As of recent, central banks of the U.K., Sweden, Thailand, China, and the US are studying whether there are advantages of the digital form of their fiat money. And the government and banking elites will seize even more power from the people.
A CBDC gives a government complete control over its currency. This will increase their financial-surveillance over the people. When a bank fails, there will be no bank run, because people can’t withdraw their money from that bank. This means when a financial crisis strikes, it will allow governments to do “bail-ins” where the people, like it or not, will be forced to take a haircut on their deposits to save the failing institution.
Faced with growing pressure to crack down on the “occupied” protest zone following two weekend shootings, Seattle’s mayor said Monday that officials will move to wind down the blocks-long span of city streets taken over two weeks ago. Mayor Jenny Durkan said at a news conference that the violence was distracting from changes sought by thousands of peaceful protesters seeking to address racial inequity and police brutality. She said the city is working with the community to bring the “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” zone to an end. “The cumulative impacts of the gatherings and protests and the nighttime atmosphere and violence has led to increasingly difficult circumstances for our businesses and residents,” Durkan said. “The impacts have increased and the safety has decreased.”
US President Donald Trump has authorized federal authorities to arrest anyone accused of vandalizing or destroying “any monument, statue or other such Federal property,” with any persons charged with doing facing up to 10 years in prison, in accordance with “the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent.”

Barcelona’s opera house has reopened and performed its first concert since the coronavirus lockdown. To an audience that didn’t have to worry about social distancing. Instead of people, there were 2,292 plants, one for each seat in the theater. Monday’s concert was also livestreamed for humans to watch. The event was conceived by a Spanish artist who said he was inspired by nature during the pandemic. At the end of the eight-minute concert, the sound of leaves and branches blowing in the wind resonated throughout the opera house like applause. The theater says it will gift the plants to local health workers as a thank you for their efforts during the pandemic.

Huge geotextile sheets put up on the Presena glacier (2700m-3000m) on the Val di Sole near Pellizzano in Trentino, northern Italy, in order to delay snow melting on skiing slopes. According to news agency AFP, the tarp is made of “geotextile tarpaulins that reflect sunlight, maintaining a temperature lower than the external one, and thus preserving as much snow as possible”. Situated at an altitude of 3,000 metres, the tarp is laid down every year. The tarp is meticulously placed across the mountain, and sewed shut to prevent hot air from sneaking in. It is then covered with bags of sand to restrict movement. To someone looking from a distance, the sheets will look just like snow. Tarps are made in Australia and cost $450 each, and the work takes six weeks each, for installing and removing them.

On June 21st, something rare and magical happened in London. The skies of the great city filled with noctilucent clouds (NLCs). Phil Halper noticed the display, grabbed a camera, and raced from one landmark to another, hurriedly recording pictures like this one. If NLCs look alien–that’s because they are. The clouds are seeded by meteoroids. They form every year around this time when summertime wisps of water vapor rise up to the mesosphere, allowing water to crystallize around specks of meteor smoke. Usually you have to be under a dark sky at high latitudes to see these rare clouds–but 2020 is not usual. Record-cold temperatures in the mesosphere are boosting NLCs, brightening them enough to see from places like London.

This is SIRIAN technology, like an advanced camera. It’s meant to look strange and be seen by us to provoke questions. There’s a cloaked craft close by. Sirian crafts are rare to see. I’ve shown Arcturian versions of this, each looks different. Via Neioh.

A vast cloud of Sahara dust is blanketing the Caribbean as it heads to the US with a size and concentration that experts say hasn’t been seen in half a century. Air quality across most of the region reached record “hazardous” levels and experts who nicknamed the event the “Godzilla dust cloud” warned people to stay indoors and use air filters if they had them. “This is the most significant event in the past 50 years,” said Pablo Méndez Lázaro, an environmental health specialist at the University of Puerto Rico. “Conditions are dangerous in many Caribbean islands.” Many health specialists were concerned about those battling respiratory symptoms tied to the coronavirus pandemic. Lázaro, who is working with Nasa to develop an alert system for the arrival of Sahara dust, said the concentration was so high in recent days that it could even have adverse effects on healthy people. Extremely hazy conditions and limited visibility were reported from Antigua down to Trinidad & Tobago, with the event expected to last until late Tuesday. Some people posted pictures of themselves on social media wearing double masks to ward off the coronavirus and the dust, while others joked that the Caribbean looked like it had received a yellow filter movie treatment.

23 JuneHere we see the earthquakes of the last 12 hours, we note how the deep shock that took place in Italy yesterday pushed the seismic force towards the coasts of North Africa, a possibility we had talked about yesterday. A new wave from the east manifested itself just north of the island of Corfu in Greece with a shock of M4.4, this went to fill the intermediate point between the two similar shocks that happened today, in Algeria and Turkey. There is a possibility that central Italy and/or the area from Croatia to Slovenia may experience a movement of high M3, even M4, very shortly. The Canary Islands may also be subject to movement on the M3 while it is possible that the Azores Islands, the final release point in the North Atlantic, will see the arrival of the seismic wave with movements greater than the M4.

23 JuneA massive earthquake of M7.4 occurred in Mexico in the Oaxaca area at 15:29 UTC, deep EQ on the other side of the Pacific created enormous pressure on the plate and near the area of the huge shock of last year in Mexico, a seismically weak zone and prone to earthquakes, we see this strong movement. In this area, on the occasion of the M8 movement last year, there was a movement of the plates of about 1 meter. This is the second major shock to the M7 in a week, no coincidence! The surrounding areas, North, South and East will have to compensate for this movement with settlements that could also reach the M6.
