>As in the U.S., the attention given to Alaska Day—October 18—in Russia doesn’t rise to the level of the national front page news. So far, it is not an official holiday in Russia—but, who knows, maybe that’s about to change.

>This year, on Sailors Square in the town of Yevpatoria, Crimea—which Russia snatched from Ukraine more than two years ago—a small but sturdy red-bricked monument with a message to future generations of Russians was built. The monument is named “For the Edification of Posterity” and the inscription on it reads: “WE HAVE RETURNED CRIMEA, YOU ARE TO RETURN ALASKA.” Silhouettes of both Crimea and Alaska are engraved.

>Shocked tourists, upon confronting the memorial, at first do not believe their eyes—but then begin taking selfies.

>The U.S. purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867 has been engulfed by conspiracy theories since the days of Soviet history textbooks that blamed Russian czars for every inch of Russian land lost to hostile outsiders. Disregarding the facts, one popular belief is that the Alaska purchase was a top-secret, “under the table” deal between corrupt Russian officials and Washington. By this logic, Alaska was not sold to the U.S. for $7.2 million in gold, but rather given under the terms of a 100-year lease. The theory here is that the American gold never reached the Russian treasury but drowned under mysterious circumstances in the ocean on its way to Russia—and the contract was not in Russian and never included the the word “sale.”

>Last year, Russian TV released a documentary entitled “When Will Alaska Become Ours?”—arguing that, because Russia received only a meager portion of the promised $7.2 million for Alaska, the deal must be declared null and void.

>Like the Japanese, who haven’t lost hope of regaining control over the Kuril Islands that were lost to Russia after WWII, Russian popular belief holds that Alaska is not really American, and there is a chance to have it back one day. (Vladimir Putin is set to visit Japan in December, and the islands will be first among topics to be discussed. Unlike Japan, though, Russia yet does not have her “Northern Territories Day” with regards to Alaska.)

>A recent article published in the US business magazine Quartz argues that an "uptick of nationalism" in Siberia threatens to break up the Russian Federation.

>In his article, republished by Quartz from online news and opinion magazine Muftah, independent journalist Bradley Jardine says that Siberia's history of non-conformism has led its "inhabitants, including its ethnic Russian population, [to develop] a very distinctive identity –a sort of swash-buckling frontier spirit akin to American pioneers." The journalist argues that this "sense of nationalism," which had its origins in the 19th century, has recently intensified.

>Jardine cites Siberians' apparent anger over the federal government's unfair distribution of tax revenues, along with the old news item of "Vladimir Putin's centralizing reforms," which he says have "inflam[ed] hostility toward Moscow." It's worth pointing out here that Russia returned to a system of direct elections for its regional governors back in 2012, and that the tax revenues issue is literally older than the Russian state itself, first emerging back in the Soviet period.

>Stanislav joked that "the rich mineral wealth of Siberia does not give these foreigners any peace. I have heard these fairy tales [about Siberia breaking off from Russia] since the 90s." Alex added that the "the idea here is clear –to create a false nation to oppose Russia and to gather the fruits from the conflict which results." Martin capped off the commentary, urging everyone not to worry and noting that "we Siberians would be a tough nut to crack. We live in a calm, measured way, and do not give in to propaganda…Siberians will not tolerate any turmoil."

>Thievery enablement is now no longer a sustainable Russia policy. So what do we do? In two words: buy it, or, more precisely, buy Siberia and neighboring territory from Russia.

>Almost eight years ago, Walter Russell Mead of the Council on Foreign Relations proposed in a Los Angeles Times op-ed piece that the United States buy Siberia from Russia for $2 trillion. At the time, Russian President Boris Yeltsin had offered to sell oil fields, production plants and land to the United States to help pay down some of Russia's then-$70 billion in foreign debt. President Bush turned Yeltsin down, reasoning that it was one thing for America to win the Cold War, quite another to buy up its assets in a fire sale.

>Times have changed. Russia's gross domestic product is roughly half the size it was in 1991 and nearly half of its people?more than 60 million of them?live below the poverty line. The poverty line in Russia makes the poverty line in America look like Southampton. The near-term outlook could hardly be bleaker.

>Russia is a country on the verge of economic implosion. Mead's proposal fixes all that with the stroke of a pen. A $2 trillion purchase of Siberia pays off Russia's debt, stabilizes its currency, upgrades its infrastructure (which would be done by American businesses, thus helping alleviate the U.S. current account deficit) and leaves more than enough left over to pay all the back wages of every last pensioner. There would even be enough left over for an Alaska-style rebate to every Russian citizen, assuming the kleptocracy doesn't skim off more than the usual 33 percent.

>In return, the United States would acquire a land mass larger than its own with a population of roughly 30 million people. "The combination of new territories in Asia," Mead wrote, "and a vast, suddenly solvent market in European Russia would amount, literally, to a new frontier with new opportunities and challenges for generations to come? This deal would double our size and put us on the Pacific Rim at the intersection of China, Korea and Japan.


>Of course, if the idea were even proposed at a meeting of Clinton administration foreign policy decision-makers, it would be shot down in an instant. Too risky. Too tricky. They'd lawyer it back to an IMF loan guarantee program so fast it would make your head spin.

The biggest difference is that Canadians on average are very complacent, being as non-offensive and as conformative as possible is their national sport.

In America we probably have more people that are adversarial to the federal government than Canada's total population. Even in New York I know plenty of people who've talked about shooting the first person who comes to collect their firearms. We have cops that refuse to enforce the SAFE ACT even.

But personally, I would love to see them try this; I'm sure that after a couple hundred cops get splaterized things will probably get interesting.

>This morning’s attack started around 7 am ET and was aimed at Dyn, an Internet infrastructure company headquartered in New Hampshire. That first bout was resolved after about two hours; a second attack began just before noon. Dyn reported a third wave of attacks a little after 4pm ET. In all cases, traffic to Dyn’s Internet directory servers throughout the US—primarily on the East Coast but later on the opposite end of the country as well—was stopped by a flood of malicious requests disrupting the system. Still ongoing, the situation is a definite reminder of the fragility of the web, and the power of the forces that aim to disrupt it.

Schneier warned about this last month:
>Over the past year or two, someone has been probing the defenses of the companies that run critical pieces of the Internet. These probes take the form of precisely calibrated attacks designed to determine exactly how well these companies can defend themselves, and what would be required to take them down. We don't know who is doing this, but it feels like a large nation state. China or Russia would be my first guesses.

>First, a little background. If you want to take a network off the Internet, the easiest way to do it is with a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS). Like the name says, this is an attack designed to prevent legitimate users from getting to the site. There are subtleties, but basically it means blasting so much data at the site that it's overwhelmed. These attacks are not new: hackers do this to sites they don't like, and criminals have done it as a method of extortion. There is an entire industry, with an arsenal of technologies, devoted to DDoS defense. But largely it's a matter of bandwidth. If the attacker has a bigger fire hose of data than the defender has, the attacker wins.

>Recently, some of the major companies that provide the basic infrastructure that makes the Internet work have seen an increase in DDoS attacks against them. Moreover, they have seen a certain profile of attacks. These attacks are significantly larger than the ones they're used to seeing. They last longer. They're more sophisticated. And they look like probing. One week, the attack would start at a particular level of attack and slowly ramp up before stopping. The next week

Various security groups now believe it was another Internet of Shit based attack.
>At first, it was unclear who or what was behind the attack on Dyn. But over the past few hours, at least one computer security firm has come out saying the attack involved Mirai, the same malware strain that was used in the record 620 Gpbs attack on my site last month. At the end September 2016, the hacker responsible for creating the Mirai malware released the source code for it, effectively letting anyone build their own attack army using Mirai.

>Mirai scours the Web for IoT devices protected by little more than factory-default usernames and passwords, and then enlists the devices in attacks that hurl junk traffic at an online target until it can no longer accommodate legitimate visitors or users.

>According to researchers at security firm Flashpoint, today’s attack was launched at least in part by a Mirai-based botnet. Allison Nixon, director of research at Flashpoint, said the botnet used in today’s ongoing attack is built on the backs of hacked IoT devices — mainly compromised digital video recorders (DVRs) and IP cameras made by a Chinese hi-tech company called XiongMai Technologies. The components that XiongMai makes are sold downstream to vendors who then use it in their own products.

>“It’s remarkable that virtually an entire company’s product line has just been turned into a botnet that is now attacking the United States,” Nixon said, noting that Flashpoint hasn’t ruled out the possibility of multiple botnets being involved in the attack on Dyn.

  So if it pans out, that's the wind power to liquid fuel issue solved.
>OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Oct. 12, 2016—In a new twist to waste-to-fuel technology, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed an electrochemical process that uses tiny spikes of carbon and copper to turn carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into ethanol. Their finding, which involves nanofabrication and catalysis science, was serendipitous.

>“We discovered somewhat by accident that this material worked,” said ORNL’s Adam Rondinone, lead author of the team’s study published in ChemistrySelect. “We were trying to study the first step of a proposed reaction when we realized that the catalyst was doing the entire reaction on its own.”

>The team used a catalyst made of carbon, copper and nitrogen and applied voltage to trigger a complicated chemical reaction that essentially reverses the combustion process. With the help of the nanotechnology-based catalyst which contains multiple reaction sites, the solution of carbon dioxide dissolved in water turned into ethanol with a yield of 63 percent. Typically, this type of electrochemical reaction results in a mix of several different products in small amounts.

>“We’re taking carbon dioxide, a waste product of combustion, and we’re pushing that combustion reaction backwards with very high selectivity to a useful fuel,” Rondinone said. “Ethanol was a surprise -- it’s extremely difficult to go straight from carbon dioxide to ethanol with a single catalyst.”

>The catalyst’s novelty lies in its nanoscale structure, consisting of copper nanoparticles embedded in carbon spikes. This nano-texturing approach avoids the use of expensive or rare metals such as platinum that limit the economic viability of many catalysts.

>“By using common materials, but arranging them with nanotechnology, we figured out how to limit the side reactions and end up with the one thing that we want,” Rondinone said.

>The researchers’ initial analysis suggests that the spiky textured surface of the catalysts provides ample reactive sites to facilitate the carbon dioxide-to-ethanol conversion.

No, no it's not, creating a method for turning atmospheric CO2 into ethanol is like creating a method for reprocessing spilt blood and injecting it back into the body.

Me? I'm going to put a turniquet on my bleeding wound.

You? While bleeding, try processing the blood you spilled onto the ground, and injecting it back into yourself to maintain blood pressure.

We'll see who lives longer.
>> No. 114015 ID: b86cd3
Ocean acidification is a thing bro. Being able to pull CO2 out of the water will help that, and the resulting ethanol will be a carbon neutral liquid fuel (that's safer and easier to store/use than hydrogen) if it's made using wind/solar/nuclear energy.

Pulling CO2 out of the air and dissolving it in water before processing it would be technically feasible I'd imagine, a intermediary state between CO2 gas and dry ice.

Fucking Lol.

You bought that shit hook line and sinker. He mostly (mostly) funded his republican nom himself. However as soon as he got the nom he turned to corps to fund his general election run. Of his reported $83 million in campaign funds he has contributed less than 7%. The corp above (look into them, interesting stuff) has alone contributed twice as much as Trump has.

>How is Trump a part of corruption in DC, exactly?
He did donate $100,000 to the Clintons. He has been pretty close with career DC politicians for a long long time. To say he isnt part of the politiscene is incredibly naive and juvenile.

In fact check out this list:
Few are corporations, you need to go down to Murray Energy to hit the first one, and even that's not a publicly traded corporation.
