Low-cost device can measure air pollution anywhere

  • Open-source tool from MIT’s Senseable City Lab lets people check air quality, cheaply.

Air pollution is a major public health problem: The World Health Organization has estimated that it leads to over 4 million premature deaths worldwide annually. Still, it is not always extensively measured. But now an MIT research team is rolling out an open-source version of a low-cost, mobile pollution detector that could enable people to track air quality more widely.

The detector, called Flatburn, can be made by 3D printing or by ordering inexpensive parts. The researchers have now tested and calibrated it in relation to existing state-of-the-art machines, and are publicly releasing all the information about it — how to build it, use it, and interpret the data.

SECURITY: Passkeys don’t solve every security problem

Why You Should Start Using Passkeys

Passwords have been our first line of defense against hackers since the 1960s. But, now they’re showing their age and limitations in the 21st-century data wars. Not even password managers are safe. Passkeys are now here to help. Here’s why you should switch and enjoy a more secure digital future.

*** end quote ***

Passkeys solve the “password” problem for only one use case.

Use cases are programmer speak for how the application interacts with the User.

If you’re the average plain vanilla User, then they are fine. 

But, if you access the application from different hardware, then you can’t use a passkey.  

Apple shares the passkeys in its walled garden, so that is another use case addressed.

I’m not sure how Google / Android addresses the use case of a different platform usage.

Having password managers storing the passkey may solve the problem but defeat the concept.

Officers have described the utter relief after they battled to save an unconscious three-year-old boy who was trapped in his car seat and completely submerged by water for three minutes before he was rescued and revived with CPR by the police.

The child was trapped in his seat after the car had plunged into a canal following a car crash, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department in Florida, which was called to the rescue.

Despite ‘heroic efforts’, the driver was unable to get the boy out of the car, even after good Samaritans saw the accident and tried to help.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The DoJ protected the Bidens while prosecuting DJT45

Feds’ Foreign-Corruption Double Standard: They Protected Bidens Even as They Bore Down on Trumpworld

  • Chi Ping “Patrick” Ho, convicted in a 2018 corruption case. At trial, U.S. prosecutors redacted Hunter Biden’s name from court exhibits and did not explore evidence of his lucrative dealings with the powerful Chinese figure. 

*** begin quote ***

At the same time that Department of Justice officials were using spying and corruption statutes to aggressively pursue Donald Trump’s allies based on what turned out to be rumor and innuendo, they declined to use those same laws to investigate evidence of wrongdoing involving Biden family members and one of their corrupt Chinese business partners, DOJ documents and federal court records reveal.  

In 2016-2017, the evidence shows, the FBI raided the offices and intercepted the communications of Chi Ping “Patrick” Ho, a Chinese national suspected of espionage even as he was negotiating business deals with former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and brother James.  

DOJ later used information obtained from the searches and wiretaps – which included conversations with the current President’s son and brother – to convict Ho of bribery and money laundering, as part of a separate corruption case involving United Nations officials. But it declined to tap into its trove of evidence – including “over 100,000 emails” – to explore the connections between Ho and the Bidens, who received millions of dollars from Ho and a Chinese intelligence front and discussed sharing office space.

Silicon Valley Bank employees received their annual bonuses shortly before the bank was seized Friday, NBC News reported late Saturday.

The bank traditionally hands out bonuses for the prior year’s work on the second Friday in March, and the payments had been in the works for days, sources familiar with the matter told CNBC.  

It’s unclear how much cash was distributed, but NBC said the bonuses likely ranged from $14,000 each for associates to $140,000 apiece for managing directors, based on figures posted on the Glassdoor website.

“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value – zero.” -Voltaire, 1694-1778

The history of fiat money (ie. money issued by government decree) shows that governments consistently increase supply far beyond demand. This invariably leads to devaluation of the currency over time, something that we experience as inflation. Looking at some examples:

    The U.S. dollar has lost 96% of its value since 1913

    The euro has lost 40% of its value since 1997

    The pound has lost 99.602% of its value since 1751

Sir Michael Caine hits out at ‘bull***t’ suggestion his 1964 movie Zulu incites extremism after it was included on list by government’s Prevent scheme for ‘encouraging far-right sympathies’
By Laurence Dollimore
Published: 08:03 EST, 9 March 2023 | Updated: 08:43 EST, 9 March 2023

*** begin quote ***

Sir Michael Caine has blasted the ‘bull***t’ suggestion his 1964 film Zulu incites the far-Right after it was included on a government list of works that may ‘encourage’ extremism. 

The epic war movie, which also starred cinematic greats Richard Burton and Stanley Baker, depicts the 1879 Battle of Rorke’s Drift during the Anglo-Zulu war, in which 150 British soldiers successfully held off 4,000 Zulu warriors. 

While the soldiers were awarded 11 Victoria Crosses for their efforts, the re-telling of their victory – released some 59 years ago – has previously come under fire for alleged ‘racist overtones’ and ‘factual inaccuracies’.

*** and ***

But leader of the Zulu tribe Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi, now 94, who played own his great-grandfather King Cetshwayo in the film, said it should not be viewed through a 21st century lens.

‘Even if the past is uncomfortable, and perhaps especially when the past is uncomfortable, it needs to be examined and unpacked rather than hidden away. Of course race is a central theme in the film’, he previously told The Times. 

He urged critics of the film to look beyond the view that Africans were depicted as ‘savages’ and praised the way the community recreated history.

He added: ‘When we filmed Zulu, both black and white were recreating a part of history that held tremendous meaning for all of us. Rorke’s Drift was only one battle.

‘It was preceded by Isandlwana, the greatest military victory of an African nation against the British, and it was followed by the Battle of Ulundi, where our nation was defeated and subjugated.

‘What followed was decades of hardship and sorrow. But the spirit of the Zulu nation remains unconquered, and we still thrive in 21st century South Africa.

‘There is still a king on the throne of King Cetshwayo and millions of black South Africans still honour our culture and traditions.

‘Whenever that past is remembered it should always be a celebration of our ongoing fight, and victory, against division. That is worth thinking about, as that is the present-day context of the film Zulu.’

I’ve watch this move several times at different points in my life.  And, each time, I have taken away a different message.  Initially, it was what would make men die like that?  Im sure my high school teachers, mostly ex WWII marines, could have helped me make sense out out if.  I never was able to and hence went on my way.   Later in life, I watched it again and was shocked as “spears versus rifles” ensure a massacre.  Reminded my of the American Revolution and men would line up to be shot at.  And, it WWI where the same tactics rendered huge casualties.  Generals fighting the next war with the last war’s tactics.  Finally, just recently, I watched it again and felt the futility of just all that killing. Argh!

I was surprised in this article by: “The Zulus, known for their bravery and ferocity, were eventually forced to retreat with 350 of their number killed compared to 17 British.”  Watching the movie, you’d have thought it was much worse.  I guess that is “dramatic license”.


“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.” ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

DISCOURAGING: The USA is and has been in a “Fall of Rome” death spiral

When Strength Is Needed, America Shows Weakness
By John Green  — March 6, 2023

In the past, America was feared by its adversaries because of its sheer industrial might. During WWII, we built over 300,000 airplanes and 99 aircraft carriers. Now we can’t keep store shelves stocked with basics like baby formula. Unloading ships in a timely fashion seems to be a skill beyond our ability.

We’ve sacrificed the reliability of our electric grid in a quixotic attempt to control the weather. In pursuit of renewable power sources, we have allowed far more reliable sources to become vulnerable to sabotage and poorly maintained.

The Biden administration has depleted our strategic petroleum reserve in a failing attempt to control prices at the pump — something the reserve was never intended for. The reserve is now at its lowest level since 1984. At the same time, the administration has restricted domestic energy production. We are now energy dependent on some of the most unstable regions in the world.

There’s a reason the military use Zulu (aka GMT) for all orders. Sigh!

A veteran JPMorgan Chase banker fumed over the financial giant’s policy requiring staffers to give six months’ notice before being allowed to leave for another job.

The Wall Street worker, who claims to earn around $400,000 annually in total compensation after accumulating 15 years of experience, griped that the lengthy notice period likely means a lucrative job offer from another company will be rescinded.

Taking to the social media platform Blind — which allows career professionals anonymity so that they can freely post without concern about retribution from their bosses — the worker in the e-trade division lamented over the policy.

Seems like this is a form of slavery.  Even if a well compensated form of it.  I can understand wanting to protect your business but it’s a fact of life that every night your most important asset walks out the door.  

A six month notice requirement is different IMHO than a noncompete clause.  One “indentures” you; the other just limits where you can go.

I would assume that if one litigated this, the courts would see it as slavery. 

Of course, that assumes you can get “justice” in a Gooferment court, when Big Business owns so many politicians and bureaucrats.



GOVERNACIDE: Does the EPA demonstrate “willful ignorence”?

Here’s the real reason the EPA doesn’t want to test for toxins in East Palestine

Stephen Lester

  • The agency is familiar with dioxins, having researched its adverse effects, and if they test the soil in East Palestine for it, they will find it

Thu 2 Mar 2023 09.00 EST

*** begin quote ***

The most toxic form of dioxin is 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin or TCDD. TCDD is more commonly recognized as the toxic contaminant found in Agent Orange and at Love Canal, New York and Times Beach, Missouri, both sites of two of the most tragic environmental catastrophes in US history.

*** and ***

This is important because of the adverse health effects associated with exposure to dioxins. Exposure to dioxins can cause cancer, reproductive damage, developmental problems, type 2 diabetes, ischemic heart disease, infertility in adults, impairment of the immune system and skin lesions.

The EPA is very familiar with dioxins. For more than 25 years, the agency evaluated and assessed the risks posed by exposure to dioxins. They published multiple draft reports on the health effects caused by exposure to dioxins. They published an inventory of dioxin sources and devoted an enormous amount of time to studying dioxins. The agency knows this chemical very well.

So why is EPA unwilling to test for dioxins in the soil? My guess is because they know they will find it. And if they find it, they’ll have to address the many questions people are asking. It will not be easy to interpret the results of the testing for dioxins in soil, but to avoid testing is irresponsible. The EPA’s mission is to protect human health and the environment. Clearly the situation in East Palestine is the place where EPA should follow its mission and do right by the people who live in this town. EPA must test the soil in East Palestine for dioxins.

Karas said that the judge concluded that any potential prosecutorial misconduct by Champion “was not prejudicial” to Tellis.

The Cell Phone Evidence

Intelligence Analyst Paul Rowlett testified about Chambers’ and Tellis’ phone data, and claimed that phone data put Chambers and Tellis together at the same location just before, or possibly even during, Chambers’ murder. The defense team has questioned Rowlett about the accuracy of the data.

Another troubling point for the defense is the fact that Tellis deleted all the texts and calls between he and Chambers after her death. Tellis, who has always maintained his innocence, stated that he deleted the data because he did not want a dead person’s information in his phone.

The cell phone data appears damning, but according to Karas, cell phone tower pings and other related evidence are not always conclusive — especially in rural areas where there are only a few towers. In these cases, she says, experts have told her that the location of the cell phone can only be narrowed down to an “around two to 10 or 20 square mile area.”

  2. The Other Murder
  3. The “Eric/Derrick” Debate
  4. The Cell Phone Evidence
  5. The New Witnesses

There were also SIGNIFICANT differences between the two trials that the second jury wasn’t told about that were dispositive.  In my recollection, they mostly went AGAINST the prosecution.

  • The shoddy police work around crime scene search may have missed critical and “finding and photographing” the keys certainly was an attempt to fabricate evidence.
  • The testimony of the first responders in the first trial was very authentic; in the second, they all sounded rehearsed and coached.
  • The cell phone data was unbelievable and unreliable.
  • Where did they dig up the witness that supposedly gave him a ride? Her testimony had to be the result of a quid pro quo from the prosecutor for her son.
  • They couldn’t find the guy that found the keys was totally bogus.

Now this fellow definitely was not the sharpest tack in the box, and probably was a “bad guy” for other things, but the prosecution failed to make a good case.

I especially like the candid gang leader who said: “If he did it, he was a pretty dumb ***** to think he could burn up a white woman in Mississippi and get away with it.”

I don’t think the prosecution came close to proving their case and how can prosecutorial misconduct NOT prejudice the case against the defendant.
