For example: Over the last weekend he tweeted twice about North Korea, twice about the Health Care bill, zero times about Puerto Rico's apocalyptic devastation by Hurricane Maria and "20" times about the NFL's disrespect for the national anthem."

President Donald Trump, on Monday morning, continued to bash NFL players who kneel or otherwise protest during the US national anthem before games. In a series of tweets, he pointed out that "many people booed" the protesting players, and he again denied the issue was race-related.

On Friday while speaking at a rally in Alabama, Trump had derided NFL players who chose to kneel during the national anthem to protest police violence against black people, saying: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b---- off the field right now, out — he's fired!'"

Teams, players, and commissioner Roger Goodell responded with statements defending players' right to kneel. Goodell said the president's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.

In 14 NFL games on Sunday, dozens of NFL players responded to Trump's criticism from earlier in the weekend by kneeling or otherwise protesting during the anthem. Before the game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Tennessee Titans, both teams stayed in their locker room to avoid the spectacle entirely. Elsewhere, while some players knelt, others stood with arms linked in a display of unity.

Over an hour after kickoff, the president tweeted about the protests again, saying, "Standing with locked arms is good — kneeling is not acceptable."
Beyond NFL players, some artists performing the national anthem knelt in protest.
While Trump demanded on Monday that the NFL "must respect" the US's flag and anthem, and on Friday said NFL owners should fire players who protest, he has not suggested any legislation or legal action, which would most likely restrict the players' First Amendment right to acts of free speech.
But what about the protest? Police violence against black Americans is a very real issue. We have seen example after example in the past few years when witnesses have recorded the violence on their cell phones. It is right to protest any kind of inhumanity.
What better forum to bring attention to the problem than a stadium full of people and with millions watching at home ? Mr Trump hasn't tweeted about the reason for the protest. And I guess he won't, since he gives a kindly nod to white supremacists and glosses over the Nazis' Third Reich. As usual, he aggravates and escalates a situation rather than solving it.

These 8 U.S. Cities Are in Range of North Korean Missiles

Jason Rossi          September 23, 2017
The United States is home to a handful of world-class cities. It is no stretch to say San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago are all among the most famous cities in the world. But those who have never visited before might want to schedule a trip soon.

According to a recent report by CNBC, several of the country’s renowned cities have the potential to be wiped out or at least severely damaged by Kim Jong Un’s itchy trigger finger. North Korea’s nuclear missile program is believed to have the capability of hitting several U.S. metropolises. Chinese and Russian leaders are asking for cooler heads to prevail, so an imminent strike seems like a far-fetched idea. But, if worse comes to worst, here are some of the more notable cities within missile range — and what could be lost if a North Korean strike were to take place.
1. Boston
What could be lost: Faneuil Hall, Bunker Hill Monument, Paul Revere House
Some of the United States’ most historic moments could be within range of North Korea’s missiles if a launch takes place. Faneuil Hall, the site of some speeches that helped ignite the American Revolution, has already been gutted by fire in its history but could be completely wiped out. Paul Revere’s house and historic Fenway Park would likely be decimated, too. A strike could make it very hard to test out your Boston accent on the locals at a Dunkin Donuts.
2. Chicago
What could be lost: The Art Institute of Chicago, John Hancock Center, Navy Pier, Willis (Sears) Tower

If a missile were to hit downtown Chicago, the renowned collection of works at the Art Institute would be lost. And the iconic John Hancock Center, the adjacent Magnificent Mile, and tourist hot spot Navy Pier would be subjected to radioactive fallout. The Chicago Board of Trade would also be hit. That would make it hard to re-enact your favorite scenes from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
3. Denver
What could be lost: Denver Botanical Gardens, Denver Art Museum, Molly Brown House Museum

One missile hitting downtown Denver would wipe out some of the city’s well-known and most beloved attractions. The Molly Brown House Museum, which highlights the life of perhaps the United States’ most progressive woman of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, could be destroyed. So too would be the nearby Denver Botanical Gardens and the Denver Art Museum, the latter of which is home to a well-known collection of Native American art. But the Coors brewery in Golden, Colorado, to the west might be spared. So you would be able to drown your sorrows.
4. Honolulu
What could be lost: USS Arizona Memorial, Diamond Head, Waikiki Beach

The island paradise and nearby naval base could be an enticing target for North Korea. Prevailing winds would blow much of the fallout southwest out into the sea, but a strike would wipe out the historic sites at Pearl Harbor and put a damper on the tourist attractions near downtown Honolulu.
5. Los Angeles
What could be lost: The Getty Center, Griffith Observatory, MacArthur Park

Some of the most iconic landmarks known to movie buffs would be in danger were a missile from North Korea to strike Los Angeles. The Getty Center museum, with its iconic architecture and views of downtown, could be erased. MacArthur Park, a slice of nature dropped into urban surroundings, would be gone. And your chance to dance like Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone at the Griffith Observatory would be severely hampered.
6. New York
What could be lost: Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Central Park

The United States’ best-known city would be rendered nearly uninhabitable by a 15-kiloton nuclear weapon courtesy of North Korea. That size is comparable to the “Little Boy” bomb, the smaller of the two dropped on Japan near the end of World War II.

According to NukeMap, a large portion of lower Manhattan would be leveled and radioactive fallout could spread up the island and into Connecticut as nearly 400,000 people would be immediately impacted. Needless to say, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, and some of the city’s other well-known attractions wouldn’t be very fun to visit then, but Times Square might be a little less crowded.
7. San Diego
What could be lost: Mission Bay Park, San Diego Zoo, USS Midway Museum

San Diego and the large naval base just south of downtown would be within range and an enticing target for North Korea. San Diego’s temperate climate makes visiting the renowned San Diego Zoo and the USS Midway Museum, a decommissioned aircraft carrier that has planes spanning from World War II to Operation Desert Storm, a pleasant experience. But the temperature might be a little too warm if a missile were to strike.
8. San Francisco
What could be lost: Alcatraz Island, Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39

Another West Coast metropolis within range of the North Korea KN-08 missile, Alcatraz Island and the nearby Golden Gate Bridge wouldn’t stand a chance. Pier 39, a popular tourist site thanks to the seals that perch near the water, probably wouldn’t hold the same appeal if a missile were to hit.

North Korean leader to consider 'highest level of hard-line measure' against U.S.

Kim Jong un  "Rocket Man" according to  President tRUMP .
Thomson Reuters      CHRISTINE KIM AND SOYOUNG KIM       September 21st 2017 
SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un said in a rare statement on Friday the North will consider the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history" against the United States in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's threat to "totally destroy" the North.

Calling Trump "mentally deranged" and his comments "the most ferocious declaration of a war in history," Kim said his U.N. speech on Tuesday confirmed Pyongyang's nuclear program has been "the correct path".

"His remarks ... have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last," Kim said in the statement carried by the North's official KCNA news agency.

"As a man representing the DPRK and on behalf of the dignity and honor of my state and people and on my own, I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the U.S. pay dearly for his speech," Kim said, referring to the North by its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The Plot to Assassinate Kim Jong un ( where is James Bond when you really need him?)

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un looks on during the test-fire of inter-continental ballistic missile Hwasong-14 in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency: Would threatening Mr Kim undermine support for his regime among Pyongyang's elite?

There’s a secret plot afoot to assassinate North Korea leader Kim Jong-un and his key officials if the dictator starts a war, it has emerged. 
South Korean special forces have briefed president Moon Jae-in on the possibility of sending trained killers into North Korea to target the regime’s leadership.
It comes after Kim fired a test ballistic missile over Japan earlier this week, sparking outrage across the world.
Moon has reportedly told his military officials to be ready to ‘quickly switch to an offensive posture in case North Korea stages a provocation that crosses the line’.

South Korea already has a 'secret' plan in place to assassinate Kim Jong-un
South Korean army soldiers have been reportedly briefed on what to do if war breaks out

This would mean the country would be ready to carry out air and sea landings in the event of a ‘conventional’ attack from the north.
According to reports, Taurus cruise missiles fired from F-15 fighters would be used if President Moon Jae-in gives the go ahead if a war is started. And the measure would be initiated by the President’s Special Forces, Seoul newspaper Munwha IIbo reported.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump renewed his warnings to North Korea on Twitter, writing: ‘The US has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years. Talking is not the answer!’

Since then, the US has flown supersonic bombers and fighter jets over South Korea in a show of force following North Korea’s latest ballistic missile launch, according to the military in Seoul.
An official from Seoul’s Defense Ministry said two B-1B bombers and two F-35 fighters participated in training with South Korean F-15 fighter jets.
Such flyovers are common when animosity rises on the Korean peninsula, which is technically in a state of war because the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.

The B-1Bs were flown in from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam while the F-35s came from a US base in Iwakuni, Japan, the official said.
Pyongyang had earlier threatened to fire a salvo of Hwasong-12s toward Guam, which is home to key US military bases and strategic long-range bombers the North finds threatening.
The UN has since condemned the North for its actions, and have urged it to halt its weapons program immediately.
The country has previously gone against UN sanctions and conducted dozens of ballistic missile tests under Kim but this is one of the first time a projectile has been flown over mainland Japan.
Time for the rest of the world to pull together and come up with a final solution to the North Korean threat to world peace.
In the past, the North's leaders have taken seriously the risk of being targeted.
In March 1993, for example, at a time of heightened US-North Korea tensions, Kim Jong-il, the then leader of the country and the father of Kim Jong-un, spent most of the month in a secure bunker, committed to a "semi-war" status while announcing the country's withdrawal from the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT).
Fear of US escalation pushed Mr Kim into hiding but did not prevent the North from continuing to respond belligerently by violating international norms and abrogating past agreements.
Given the fears and precautions of the North's leaders, a South Korean directed "hit" on Mr Kim would be highly risky.  A botched assassination attempt could easily provoke retaliation from the North in the form of limited military action that might in turn rapidly escalate unintentionally to a full-blown nuclear exchange.
But in an environment where there remain no good policy choices for dealing with the North Korean challenge, assassination may be the only remaining option.

Russian Scientists Kept Five People Awake For 30 Days… But They Never Expected THIS To Happen.

 Sleep is a necessity of life. We need it to survive and not getting enough can have serious consequences.
Russian scientists decided to do an experiment to see if they could bypass the whole sleeping thing, and instead keep humans awake, for not just days, but weeks.

The results were shocking:
It took place in the late 1940’s where five men were enlisted for the study. They were enemies of the state so their involvement was likely not one of choice. The sleep deprivation study would aim to employ small doses of experimental gas which would hopefully eliminate any need for sleep.
They were placed in a sealed environment. This way the researchers would not be exposed to the experimental gas. The prisoners had microphones to communicate, and were given running water, food, a toilet, and books to read. All of this was just enough for a month. They were also given a cot, but the bedding was removed, likely in anticipation that the study members would not need it.
Three days went by. And things actually went well. The deal with the prisoners, which apparently was phony, was that if they didn’t crash out for 30 days, they would be free. Their dialogue and action was monitored. The prisoners began opening up about past trauma they had been through. These became darker after the fourth day.
It was day 5 when paranoia started to set in. Complaints regarding past decisions and circumstance of how they got here started surfacing. They were not conversing with one another, but rather whispering into their mics. There seemed to be something at play where they believed winning the trust of the scientists and betraying their fellow prison mates was key.
Day 10. Screaming begins. Three hours straight a prisoner is seen running back and forth continuously across the room, screaming to the point of not being able to produce a sound, only squeaks as scientists figured his vocal cords had torn.
There was no response from the other prisoners regarding the screaming.

Suddenly there seemed to be silence from the chamber. The scientists were not hearing anything, so they used the intercom, something they did not plan to do, in order to elicit a response from the prisoners. They even said that if they participated in responding, they would be freed. This is the response they got from a single calm voice:

“We no longer want to be freed.”
Day 15. The gas stimulant was removed from the chamber. It was replaced with fresh air. But the prisoners began begging for the gas to be put back on. Soldiers then came in to get the prisoners. Four of the five were still breathing. No food had been eaten in 5 days. The man who was dead, was also missing pieces of flesh. Mainly from his thighs and chest. It was clogging the drain, which in turn flooded the room as four inches of water filled the floor.
The ones who were alive were also missing skin and flesh and had wounds present, which seemed to be self-inflicted. Meanwhile the corpse was something that even the top level soldiers did not want to go near let alone bring outside.
A prisoner was killed in the process of trying to free the subjects. Violence ensued. One of prisoners explained why he was acting violent upon attempting to be freed. He simply said:

“I must remain awake.”

Australian tech expert issues dire warning about the dangers of killer sex robots

killer sex robot

The newest threat to humans may not be nuclear weapons or climate change, but rather robots intended for intimate purposes that could suddenly turn deadly. Even worse, they can even be armed with guns or knives.
Cyber security expert Dr. Nick Patterson recently voiced his concerns about the killer sex robots, cautioning that hackers could take control of the devices and turn them into wanton killing machines. “Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like in some cases knives or welding devices,” he declared. “Often these robots can be upwards of 200 pounds, and very strong.”
Elon Musk has previously warned about killer robot armies, describing artificial intelligence research as “summoning a demon.” Dr. Patterson, however, believes that the danger lies in hackers taking control of the sex robots and using them as deadly weapons. “The last thing you want is for a hacker to have control over one of these robots! Once hacked they could absolutely be used to perform physical actions for an advantageous scenario or to cause damage.”
Sex robots are a booming field in artificial intelligence, and the race is on to build the first mass-market robotic erotic companion. Harmony, a $15,000 robot created by Matt McMullen at Abyss Creations, is programmed to be “docile, submissive, and built like a porn star.” Over five years, she has evolved through six iterations and is generating a lot of interest among robot doll aficionados. “My goal, in a very simple way, is to make people happy,” McMullen said. “There are a lot of people out there, for one reason or another, who have difficulty forming traditional relationships with other people. It’s really all about giving those people some level of companionship – or the illusion of companionship.”
Some sex robots have been programmed with actual personalities, and there are others that need to be seduced before you, uh, get down to business. Some robots can be stimulated to orgasm, and there are even plans for robot brothels in Europe. These virtual girlfriends aren’t cheap, however – plan to shell out at least ten grand for even the base models.
On top of that, there’s always the danger they’ll go on a homicidal rampage. Perhaps we should take our cue from the writings of Isaac Asimov and require that all sex robots be programmed with the Three Laws of Robotics.
  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
