Type 001A leaves it's dock at Dalian, commissioning expected in 2020. Effectively it's a improved Kuznetsov and will be followed by the flatdeck Type 002 which was laid down last year.
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/25/world/asia/china-aircraft-carrier.html

>China’s first domestically built aircraft carrier slipped into the sea for the first time on Wednesday, after days of publicity celebrating the impending launch as a milestone in President Xi Jinping’s drive to extend China’s military reach far beyond its shores.

>Senior military and government officials watched as a champagne bottle was smashed on the bow and as the 1,033-foot gray hull of the carrier eased into the water at Dalian, a northeastern port, Chinese military media reported. The ship, festooned with red national flags and banners, then stopped next to the dock.

>It is far from ready for operations, but the launch “signified a major stage of progress of our country’s indigenous design and construction of aircraft carriers,” a People’s Liberation Army news bulletin said. It said the carrier would undergo more testing and fitting of equipment before trials in the water.

>The first news reports did not give the ship’s name, though previous reports have said it would probably be called the Shandong, after the eastern Chinese coastal province.

The Russian navy just lost a spy/recon ship after it rammed a African-flagged cargo ship carrying sheep and then sank, all 78 crew were rescued by the Turkish coasties.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/27/russian-warship-collides-with-freighter-in-black-sea
>A Russian naval reconnaissance warship has collided with a Togo-flagged boat near Turkey’s Black Sea coast, prompting an evacuation. There were no reports of casualties on either ship, but the Russian boat sank.

>A Turkish coastal safety official told Reuters that 78 crew members had been evacuated from the Russian ship.

>Russia’s defence ministry said its vessel, the Liman, had a hole as a result of the incident. The ministry told the Interfax news agency there were no casualties among the ship’s crew, who were “fighting to keep the boat in the water”.

>However, the Turkish coastguard later reported the boat had sunk, around three hours after the crash.

>The shipping agent GAC said the Liman and the other vessel, which it identified as Youzarsif H, collided in fog and low visibility. The Togo-flagged boat is believed to have been carrying livestock. All its crew were also unhurt.

On today's edition of TBIguy's Emporium of the Other, we find out that a Philosophy Masters student was allowed to blog on South Africa's edition of the Huffington Post. And, boy, did she write a doozy!

Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?
http://www.huffingtonpost.co.za/shelley-garland/could-it-be-time-to-deny-white-men-the-franchise_a_22036640/

>Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa's biggest cities.

>If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.

>At the same time, a denial of the franchise to white men, could see a redistribution of global assets to their rightful owners. After all, white men have used the imposition of Western legal systems around the world to reinforce modern capitalism. A period of twenty years without white men in the world's parliaments and voting booths will allow legislation to be passed which could see the world's wealth far more equitably shared. The violence of white male wealth and income inequality will be a thing of the past.


The Editor-in-Chief of HuffPost South Africa evidently feels similarly.

Popping in to point out that Huffington Post is so obviously shitty clickbait that the very liberal Washington Correspondent's Dinner made fun of it last night.

At this point it's about as newsworthy as someone's shitty Medium post. You couldn't really say that five years ago, but it's worse than Daily Kos now. The LGBT page isn't even respected in the LGBT community and we're hard up for content.

“The less the White House knows these days, the better.”

>The USS Carl Vinson, 1,100 feet long, has a displacement of 97,000 tons and sails with two nuclear reactors and about 60 aircraft. It’s escorted by a guided-missile cruiser and two destroyers.

>So how did President Trump lose it?

>In an interview with Fox Business taped on April 11, Trump confirmed a dramatic escalation in the nuclear standoff with North Korea, saying he was redirecting Navy ships to the area. “We are sending an armada — very powerful,” Trump said.

>Tough talk — except the Vinson strike group was not heading toward North Korea. It was continuing previously scheduled exercises with Australian forces in the Indian Ocean. Four days after Trump spoke of his Korea armada, a military trade publication noticed that photos released by the Navy showed the carrier off Indonesia — 3,500 miles from the Korean Peninsula — and apparently heading the other way.

>Was the Vinson looking for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370? Had Percy Jackson lured it into the Sea of Monsters, from which it would emerge somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle with Amelia Earhart, Grand Duchess Anastasia and Jimmy Hoffa?

>There has been much speculation about Trump’s nonsense talk about his “armada.” Administration officials suggested a miscommunication between the Pentagon and the White House. Others suspected deliberate psy-ops against North Korea and China.

Lease: Raiders Wouldn't Pay Rent At Tax-Funded Vegas Stadium
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/F/FBN_RAIDERS_MOVE_VEGAS_STADIUM

>LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders wouldn't pay rent at a proposed tax-funded stadium they want to call home in Las Vegas under the most recent version of a lease agreement unveiled Thursday during a meeting of the public entity overseeing plans for the $1.9 billion project.

>The stadium authority board justified the lack of rent for the Raiders with the investment that the team is making on the 65,000-seat domed stadium to which guests of hotels and other lodging facilities in the Las Vegas area are contributing $750 million through a room tax increase.

>"It's based on the fact that the Raiders are going to be investing up to $1.15 billion and certainly taking the risk for any overruns," board chairman Steve Hill said after the meeting. "So, in order to make that agreement make financial sense, the revenue from the stadium needed to flow to those investors."

>Jones said he sometimes smokes marijuana — nearly yearly — “to monitor its strength, which is how law enforcement does it.” He then added that he tested it because he believes it is now too strong — a development he blamed on billionaire and political donor George Soros, whom he claimed in court has “brain damaged a lot of people.”

Also his defense is that he's fake news:

Speaking of religious police, Georgia Man harasses Muslims... with a twist!
http://www.startribune.com/minneapolis-muslims-protest-sharia-vigilante-patrolling-in-cedar-riverside-area/419321224/
>Abdullah Rashid, 22, a Georgia native who moved to Cedar-Riverside last year, has been making the rounds in the Somali-dominated neighborhood, telling people not to drink, use drugs or interact with the opposite sex. If he sees Muslim women he believes are dressed inappropriately, he approaches them and suggests they should wear a jilbab, a long, flowing garment. And he says he's recruiting others to join the effort.

>But local Muslim leaders are sounding the alarm. They are working to stop Rashid's group, General Presidency of the Religious Affairs and Welfare of the Ummah, and have notified Minneapolis police, who say he's being banned from a Cedar-Riverside property. Some say the group is preying on vulnerable young Muslims in a community that has dealt with national scrutiny around radicalization and terrorism.

>"What he's doing is wrong and doesn't reflect the community at all," said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

>Minneapolis police received reports in February from concerned residents who saw Rashid in a dark green uniform that said "Muslim Defense Force" and "Religious Police" and had two flags associated with ISIS and other terrorist groups.

>"We've had conversations with community members that live over there," said Officer Corey Schmidt, a police spokesman. "Sometimes it takes a little bit of time to deal with it, but it's something we've been monitoring."

>Jeff Van Nest, an FBI spokesman for Minneapolis, declined to comment.

>An anonymous source at the base told Popular Military that sixty four soldiers from the 3-15 Infantry Battalion and the 1-30 Infantry Battalion are involved.

Berniebro founder (who lives in Yekaterinburg, Siberia and receives Kremlin funding) applies for Russian citizenship, cites "anti-Russian hysteria."

http://www.businessinsider.com/calexit-leader-louis-marinelli-russia-2017-4
>The leader of California separatist group Yes California announced in a 1,600-word statement on Monday that he "intends to make Russia" his "new home" and is therefore withdrawing his petition for a "Calexit" referendum.

>Louis Marinelli, who has spearheaded the Calexit campaign since 2015, set up a makeshift embassy in Moscow in December in partnership with far-right Russian nationalists who enjoy Kremlin support while promoting secessionist movements in Europe.

>"I have found in Russia a new happiness, a life without the albatross of frustration and resentment towards ones’ homeland, and a future detached from the partisan divisions and animosity that has thus far engulfed my entire adult life," Marinelli wrote on Monday. "Consequently, if the people of Russia would be so kind as to welcome me here on a permanent basis, I intend to make Russia my new home."

>He added that he will "not return to California in the forseeable future," so "it is only proper" that he withdraw the Calexit ballot initiative petition and "allow a new petition, free from ties to me and drafted by others, to be resubmitted at future date of their choosing."

>Marinelli had been organizing the California independence referendum from Russia's fourth-largest city, Yekaterinburg, where he has lived with his wife, Anastasia, since September.

>He said in an interview in December that he was looking specifically to countries with veto power on the UN Security Council (UNSC) — Russia and China — to support his movement and recognize the results of an independence referendum in the event that the US and its UNSC allies rejected its legitimacy.

BEIJING — Dickson Wong, a marksman with a deep interest in firearms, arranges tours for groups of other Chinese gun enthusiasts to travel to DeSoto County, Fla., so they can shoot at firing ranges.

That's a long way to travel for target practice, but its exceedingly difficult to do that here in China where the restrictions on firearms are so severe that even possession of air rifles or toy guns can land you in jail for years.

“It’s a place Chinese can go to experience real gun culture,” Wong, 38, said. “It’s impossible to shoot here.”

Wong estimates tens of thousands of wealthy Chinese now travel to the U.S. every year to shoot, and aims to capture some of that demand when he opens his own state-of-the-art gun club in 2019.

He hopes to draw 5,000 Chinese tourists a year to his club with luxury accommodations and Chinese-speaking instructors. A promotional video for the club highlights sumptuous steaks, open-air firing ranges and a wide selection of weapons.

Gun tourism already is a growing business in the U.S. because of lax laws regulating firearms compared to other countries. For example, Honolulu attracts target shooters from Japan, which has stringent gun-control regulations, and Las Vegas has many firing ranges available for domestic and foreign visitors.

Wong has the closest thing to a gun shop in Beijing. It has camouflage gear, holsters and T-shirts quoting the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment — which guarantees the right to bear arms. What's missing from the shop are the arms, which are illegal to manufacture or sell in China for private use.

Although weapons control laws in China date back to the third century B.C., China was awash in firearms when the communists came to power in 1949 – the result of resistance to Japanese occupation and a protracted civil war.
