Spanish national police have stormed ministries and buildings belonging to Catalonias regional government to put a stop to the regions independence referendum. In the early morning hours, armed officers arrived at various Catalan ministries, including the economics department, foreign affairs department, and social affairs department, and made arrests in an effort to stop Catalan independence.
The Guardia Civil, which acts with the authority of Madrids interior ministry, is searching for evidence regarding the planned October 1st referendum on Catalan independence, which Spains Constitutional Court has declared illegal. The Catalan president has accused the Spanish government of effectively suspending the regions autonomy and declaring a de facto state of emergency.
Police officers raided Catalan government offices on Wednesday and arrested 12 senior officials in a bid to stop an independence referendum being held in less than two weeks time. Pro-independence crowds have since formed outside the regional ministries in support of the provincial government and in protest against the raids and searches and attempts to stop the independence referendum.

According to The Guardian, Carles Puigdemont, the president of Catalonia described the raids as a co-ordinated police assault that showed that Madrid has de facto suspended self-government and a...
Imagine this movie-script: a former KGB spy, angry at the collapse of his motherland, plots a course for revenge narrates the ominous sounding voice of Morgan Freeman.
The hysteria continues, and this time Hollywood has been enlisted. No this is not The Onion, but yet another serious committee for serious people. Meet the Committee to Investigate Russia which launched on Tuesday and immediately garnered broad coverage in pop-culture and entertainment news sites for its release of a short Morgan Freeman narrated video which aims to tell us the truth about Russian meddling in the US election. We have been attacked, Freeman says in his familiarly reassuring voice while gazing into the camera. We are at war.
Not only did the video burn up social media on Tuesday, but the founders of the lobbying group behind the production, barely one day old, were given substantial air time on cable news from CNN to MSNBC. Of course, it helps that actor, director, and lifelong Democrat Rob Reiner is behind it hes teamed up with neocons David Frum, Max Boot, and national security insiders like James Clapper.
Similar to other recently launched Russiagate campaigns and organizations weve profiled, the initiative is enjoying fawning mainstream media coverage from the very start. And apparently the historical irony is completely lost on Hollywood, a town which itself fell victim to the original McCarthyite witch hunt and its celebrity blacklist.
Meanwhile, it appears the Committee to Investigate Russia is designed to appeal especially to the popular masses and consumers of pop media and celebrity culture magazines. For example, the following gushing roll out coverage from entertainment news site PopSugar reads like the famed Max...

In case youre curious about earthquakes in the USA, Ive captured several maps showing where they have been shaking during the past year till the date of this post.

Footage of an explosion shortly after the 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico City yesterday is terrifying. Flames can be seen engulfing the building as a ring of fire crawls into the sky.
Buildings in Mexico City shook as the quake rumbled below them, and office workers fled into the street for fear of their lives. There have been reports of widespread fires in buildings across the capital and several people are said to be trapped. Most recent reports put the death toll at 216, and that number could still climb.
Perhaps the most sensational and horrifying video of the destruction is that of an exploding building. The video begins as a fire is already burning. Then youll hear a loud pop as the fireball extends toward the sky.
Residents in the city also caught a building collapse on video shortly after the earthquake.
The epicenter of the 7.1-magnitude earthquake was 2.8 miles (4.5 kilometers) east-northeast of San Juan Raboso and 34.1 miles (55 km) south-southwest of the city of Puebla, in Puebla state, according to the US Geological Survey. President Enrique Pea Nieto said 22 bodies were found in the debris of an elementary school in Mexico City that collapsed due to the earthquake. At least 30 children were still missing Tuesday night, he said.

You may create a conscious conclusion to generate a remarkable love that lasts for the remainder of your life. The main element is it is an activity, it can take time and it calls for some commitment to ourselves. The environment began to feel brighter. For one human being to love another is perhaps the toughest task that continues to be entrusted to us, the best job, the work which is why all different work is merely preparation. A romance is like that. It allows you to wonder that which we have lost along the manner in our connection with the land and natures bounty.
When it is difficult, you could have to learn how to cultivate love. As well as loving God, you can find many good reasons why we cultivate love for his Son. Well, it is, of course, centered around relationships. Above all else, it requires action. True love is quite a bit over just experiencing an emotion to get a while. Of course it truly is natural in love to want the most appropriate for another particular person, but whether it seems that way or not does not determine the price of that which we have done. Basically its love founded on principle.
If any act doesnt bring glory into a holy God, then its not Gods will or His leading. Sharing everything you happen to be with a person who you love. Yes, what one thinks of another person features a lot related to falling in love. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for your different man or woman, its likely to stay intact. A gentle person doesnt rush to judgment. MUCH was publicized on the topic of love.
Ensure it is a priority to start the day with everything you love. For many individuals, it truly is a location where we become numb. When you get to your position in which you recognize that love and belonging, your worthiness, is just a birthright rather than something its mandatory that you earn, anything is possible. At now in our private lives as well as in our collective encounter, loving ourselves is an integral section of the newest paradigm which permits for more significant love and compassion for several beings and for the world. Expressing gratitude (rather than simply fostering the feeling) to a romantic partn...

A brand new statue of Mikhail Kalashnikov holding his signature AK-47 assault rifle was unveiled in Moscow on Tuesday. The statue commemorates one of Russias most renowned inventions.
Kalashnikov is a staple name in Russia. The history of the rifle though began almost 100 years ago when its designer was born. The inventor of the worlds most famous rifle was born into a Siberian peasant family in 1919. He was mechanically minded and first aspired to design farm equipment. But World War II called him into the army and he was wounded in the 1941 battle of Bryansk. While he was in the hospital recovering, he heard other soldiers saying their weapons were insufficient to those of the Nazis. So, Kalashnikov got to work designing his own rifle.
He made a successful rifle in 1947 for the Russian army. The infamous guns name (AK-47) commemorates the designer and the year of accomplishment. Avtomat Kalashnikova (19)47.
The AK-47 soon became widely popular for its adaptability to rugged conditions, including jungles, deserts, and the bitter cold. It is simple to operate and easy to maintain. With little training, users of this rifle can often field-strip an AK-47 in a half a minute.
The gun was quickly adopted by Soviet Bloc armies and the Soviet Union distributed them to the armies of ideological allies and revolutionary groups throughout Africa and Asia. Moscow also freely licensed other countries to produce local versions.
By some estimates, the AK-47 and its versions account for about one-fifth of the worlds firearms. The rugged and reliable weapon is the number one choice for many armies, terror groups, and history collectors worldwide.
In the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin: The Kalashnikov rifle is a symbol of the creative genius of our people. Or as Russias Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky put it: the...

The Navy is going to use Xbox game console controllers to steer the periscopes in submarines. The new controllers would replace the chunky and expensive joysticks currently in use.
That joystick is by no means cheap, and it is only designed to fit on a Virginia-class submarine, said Senior Chief Mark Eichenlaub, the John Warners assistant navigator. I can go to any video game store and procure an Xbox controller anywhere in the world, so it makes a very easy replacement.
The joystick and the control panel that Lockheed Martin had developed to steer a periscope cost around $38,000. Not only that, but the joystick was heavy and clunky. It would take hours to train a sailor to use it. When the military contractor tested the Xbox controller as a replacement, sailors were able to...

Hillary Clinton has officially opened the door to questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election the very election she lost. But she still claims its Russias fault Donald Trump won.
In an interview that aired Monday on NPR, Hillary Clinton she would not rule out questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election if Russian interference is deeper than currently known. Unable to give up on the Russian hysteria she and other Democrats created out of thin air, the former presidential candidate is going to whine about it instead.
According to CNN, this just means Clinton firmly believes that Russia helped president Donald Trump win and she still isnt taking any responsibility for the fact that Americans just didnt want her to be the president. Clinton has said previously that she conceded to Trump quickly and attended his inauguration because the nations peaceful transfer of power is critical. But her comments to NPR signal that as the imaginary and completely made up depths of Russias alleged interference are revealed she could envision a time when she questions Trumps legitimacy as president.
Not that that is surprising at all. Most Democrats at some point have questioned Trumps legitimacy. This was happening since the very beginning when the media announced hed become the 45th president of the United States.
NPRs Terry Gross asked Clinton directly during the interview whether she would completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election if we learn that the Russian interference in the election is even deeper than we know now?
No. I would not, Clinton said. Gross asked: Youre not going to rule it out?
No, Clinton said. I wouldnt rule it out. ...

In newly released emails which the mainstream media is willfully ignoring, Hillary Clinton invited Russian president Vladimir Putin to a Clinton Foundation event. The Russian collusion between Hillary Clinton is becoming very apparent.
Hillary Clinton likes to talk a tough game about Russian President Vladimir Putin. And she likes to put him on the list of those at fault for her loss in the election last November to Donald Trump. But that didnt stop her from inviting him and other top Russian officials to a Clinton Foundation gala right after she became Secretary of State.
Clinton Foundation director of foreign policy Amitabh Desai sent dozens of invitations to world leaders including then-Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, and Former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev, emails recently obtained by Judicial Watch revealed.
While Democrats blast any Republican who has the nerve to even look Russias direction, Hillary and her minions in the Clinton Foundation were begging the Russians to come to an event put on by the pay for play organization. Hillary offered political favors in exchange for money filtered through the Clinton Foundation.
On March 13, 2009, Desai emailed the list of invitations to Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro, who then forwarded the email to top Clinton aide, Jake Sullivan. This happened at approximately the same time that the newly appointed Clinton tried to reset U.S. relations with Russia. Yet, Donald Trump has been blasted for trying to do the same thing. The propaganda in the media is becoming clear as they continue to brush this story under the rug too.

Its becoming apparent that the United States is getting frustrated with the continued nuclear tests done by North Korea. And to prove it, they dropped live bombs on the Korean Peninsula.
The Pentagon deployed a formation of 14 bombers and fighters over the Korean Peninsula on Sunday. This blatant show of force also included South Korean and Japanese aircraft. This most recent deployment of jets was in response to a missile launched over Japan on Thursday. The missile was the cause for much concern in Japan, and warnings were sent out to those who live on the island.
The warplanes were dispatched after North Korea launched a ballistic missile over northern Japan on Thursday, triggering a widespread emergency alert for those who call the region home. Two Air Force B-1B bombers from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and four Marine Corps F-35B fighters from Iwakuni, Japan, combined with four South Korean F-15K fighters and four F-2 Japanese fighters, U.S. defense officials said. Washington Post
The U.S. and Japanese jets flew in formation over waters near Kyushu, Japan, a southern portion of the country that is the closest major island to the Korean Peninsula. The aircraft used live bombs to carry out a simulated attack on the Pilsung training range in South Korea, a few dozen miles from the demilitarized zone separating the North and South.
If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told CNN in an interview that aired Sunday. And we all know that, and none of us want that. Haley also commented that should the U.S. thoroughly exhaust diplomatic options, then all military options are on the table.
While having a Youtube channel is able to help you boost your search engine optimization efforts, you should have previously establish an advertising strategy. Fortunately, theres a better approach to devote those search engine optimisation dollars. For instance, you could think about beginning with a solid search engine marketing plan, like I mentioned the previous post, when youve got a well optimized site consider different areas like Facebook.
SEO can be done at no cost. Search engine optimization is far more complicated to price. Search engine optimization is notoriously hard to quantify precisely. Search engine marketing is often called organic search. Search engine optimization is a long-term strategy. Off-site SEO refers to the procedure for getting votes from other web sites with the intention of raising your internet sites trust in the view of search engines.
Make certain that you have a productive site ad strategy in place that doesnt negatively affect your website, your search engine optimization ranking, or your users. Nameboy Site seems to be having problems. There are a number of unique varieties of website audits. Websites arent notified should they have been penalized. It is far better monitor website ranking because of this. It would likewise aid a ton if individuals whove submitted their sites would have a look at, review and offer insight for others. News sites are especially bad for these.
There are not any ways around it if youre serious about having an appropriate small business presence. The business will subsequently use the info gathered to engage with the lead in a venture to further convert them in a customer. An advertising strategy where one business with a huge customer base will provide some sort of additional value or incentive, supplied by another business, to its customers.

Just recently, the Defense Department granted the cloud computing giant, Amazon, a provisional authorization to host Impact Level 5 workloads, which are the military and the Pentagons most sensitive, unclassified information. Amazons web services can now host some of the governments most fascinating (to the public) and sensitive information.
This further bolsters AWS (Amazon Web Services) as an industry leader in helping support the DoDs critical mission in protecting our security, the company said in a statement. The AWS services support a variety of DoD (Department of Defense) workloads, including workloads containing sensitive controlled unclassified information and National Security Systems information.
But the DoD is already using Amazons services and this is not exactly new news. The DoD is using AWS to host sensitive, mission-critical workloads, including the operational control system for the Global Positioning System, or GPS. The provisional authorization allows military customers an easier route to use AWS for a variety of other IT services.
In total, three commercial companiesAWS, IBM and Microsoftare now able to host and store the militarys most sensitive unclassified data.

7 Serious Infections from Contaminated Food and Water
Recently, I watched a few episodes of Naked and Afraid, a series that puts two individuals in extreme environments with few supplies and, for some reason, no clothes. In this program, many of the participants come down with various infections; some of which cause bowel disturbances. Life then becomes, well, even more miserable than walking around for three weeks naked in the jungle.
Epidemics characterized by diarrhea and dehydration have been a part of the human experience since before recorded history. Cholera is an example of one particularly dangerous infection that was epidemic in the past. It and other bacterial diseases, many of which are now rare, may once again become a problem in the uncertain future.
Off the grid, water quality is questionable and may lead to misfortune if not properly purified. Using bad water to cook food in a remote setting can also lead to major problems that manifest as diarrhea, and later, dehydration. When dehydration is not treated, deaths may occur.
Many diseases with diarrhea as the main symptom are caused by poor sanitation. These including the following:
Cholera: Caused by CTX, a toxin produced by the marine and freshwater bacterium Vibrio cholera. Cholera toxins produce a rapid onset of diarrhea and vomiting within a few hours to 2 days of infection. This was a major issue in Haiti after the earthquake there several years ago.
The diarrhea caused by cholera looks like water after rice has been cooked in it. In addition, victims complain of nausea, leg cramps, and other symptoms. The body water loss with cholera is so severe that it is associated with a sixty per cent death rate if untreated. Aggressive efforts to rehydrate the patient, however, drops the death rate to only one pe...
Malware that secretly steals money from users has been downloaded by millions of people. The software is intentionally designed to steal money without people realizing they have been the victims of a theft.
ExpensiveWall is software designed to cheat users out of their money without them realizing it. The malware was hidden in at least 50 apps in the Google Play store. The malwares been dubbed ExpensiveWall after hiding inside wallpaper apps. (A list of apps can be found further down.)
According to the Check Point researchers who discovered it, ExpensiveWall has been downloaded between one million and 4.2 million times but since its hidden in apps, it is difficult to tell exactly how many have been affected.
The malware registers victims to premium services without their knowledge and sends fraudulent premium SMS messages, charging their accounts for fake services, the researcherssaid.In some cases, the SMS activity takes place without giving the user any notice. In other cases, the malware presents the user with a button called Continue, and once the user clicks the button, the malware sends a premium SMS on [their] behalf.
Several of those who unintentionally installed the malware tried to warn others by leaving review messages that said things like scam or It is NOTHING like the ad on Instagram tey [sic] lie to you DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT. The comments indicate that the app(s) are promoted on several social networks including Instagram, which might explain how it came to be downloaded so many times, said Check Point.
The ExpensiveWall apps requested a number of permissions from users after being downloaded, including internet, and SMS access. These are fairly common permissions that most users wouldnt think twice about granting, but allowed ExpensiveWall to operate.

If youre a chicken farmer, you may already know that chickens actually thrive in colder temperatures, as theyre designed with a unique ability. They are excellent at regulating their body temperatures way better than humans actually.
However, with the winter upon us, it would be nice to help our little feathered friends as much as we can. The thing is that during the winter, your chickens require water in order to generate body heat, so its still crucial that they receive an adequate supply of fresh, clean, unfrozen water. Going without water for even a couple of hours can decrease egg production for up to 2 days.
Dehydration sets in quickly with chickens, especially in extremely cold environments. Even though your hens will drink significantly less water during the winter about 3 times less on average than in the summer its critical that you keep your girls properly hydrated during the winter.
Also, depending on where you live, wintertime survival for your chickens can be anything from a walk in the park and a day of busting bricks, if you know what I mean.
Another fact is that chickens are basically 65 percent water and shuffling back and forth to the chicken coop 3 or 4 times a day carrying heavy buckets of water in freezing cold and/or heavy snow is pretty far from my idea of having quality time during the winter months.
The problem with harsh winters and chicken coops is that water tends to freeze rather quickly in sub-freezing temps. Since your chickens need water on a daily basis, youll have to find a way to provide it to them without breaking your back in the process.
Water is involved in all aspects of poultry metabolism, which essentially means that if they dont get enough of it, your girls will not be able to regulate their body temperature properly among other things (food digestion, body waste management etc).
Also, water is very important in the production of eggs, as an egg is made roughly from 74 percent water. If your girls dont have access to enough clean/fresh water, you can kiss your egg...
Hillary Clintons delusions continue. Its been almost a year since the election, and now Hillarys blaming married women who voted for Donald Trump for her loss to the president back in November.
Still unwilling to take any responsibility for her loss to Donald Trump, Hillary continues to play the blame game. So far, shes blamed everyone from her most trusted advisor, Huma Abedin, to the infamous socialist and fellow democrat Bernie Sanders, for the disastrous campaign and ridiculous ideas she championed last year. But she doesnt stop there anymore. Now its the fault of married women who voted for Donald Trump.
According to the Daily Wire, the quintessential modern feminist Clinton says women were too scared to stand up to their husbands, boyfriends, and fathers, who told them to vote Republican, and since, clearly, women have no agency or ability to think for themselves, they listened. Of course, thats according to Hillary. But she blamed socialist women as well. Clinton made the outrageous claims in an interview with NPR, where she also blamed the so-called Bernie Bros for bullying Democratic women into avoiding the more moderate Clinton in favor of the socialist, Bernie Sanders.
You yourself in the book acknowledge that a good number of young women didnt vote for you, which is presumably not a sexist choice. They just werent inspired by your message, NPRs Rachel Martin said during an interview with Clinton, out to promote her litany of excuseserrecently released book, What Happened. I think its a lot more complicated than that, Clinton answered. I did win the womens vote. I didnt win the vote of white women, but I got more white women votes than Barack Obama did, she said.
Women will have no empathy for you because they will be under tremendous pressure and Im talking principally about white women they will be under tremendous pressure from fathers, and...
Talk about a nightmare. It is being reported that criminals were able to hack into Equifax and make off with the credit information of 143 million Americans. We are talking about names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, home addresses and even drivers license numbers. If this data breach was an earthquake, we would be talking about a magnitude-10.0 on the identity theft scale. We have never seen anything like this before, and to say that this will be disastrous for the credit industry would be a massive understatement.
What really disturbed me about this story is that this hack reportedly occurred between mid-May and July of this year
Credit monitoring company Equifax has been hit by a high-tech heist that exposed the Social Security numbers and other sensitive information about 143 million Americans. Now the unwitting victims have to worry about the threat of having their identities stolen.
The Atlanta-based company, one of three major U.S. credit bureaus, said Thursday that criminals exploited a U.S. website application to access files between mid-May and July of this year.
So why didnt we learn about this until September?
Somebody out there really needs to answer that question for us.
And even though the 143 million number is being thrown around constantly, according to USA Today we may never know the true number of victims
When asked if theres a way to quantify how many people have been harmed, John Ulzheimer, a credit expert and former employee at Equifax and credit score firm FICO, said: Theres no way to know, and there may never be a way to know.
Personally, I dont see how Equifax can possibly survive after this. Their stock price is already crashing, and now it has come out that they had put a...
