Please feel free to post your questions for our panelists on this page and we'll do our best to get them answered during our Hangout.  Black holes are some of the most mysterious and misunderstood objects in the universe. Since the confirmation of their existence roughly 40 years ago, they've captured the imagination of astronomers, the public and sci-fi authors who have helped give these invisible giants a bad rap. Join our discussion which will separate fact from fiction and hear the latest developments with NuSTAR, a black hole hunter launched in June by @102371865054310418159  which is swiftly scanning the skies for these space oddities. We have some special guests lined up, including: Moderator: KQED QUEST TV producer @107722122431088291351  *Ben Burress*, Staff Astronomer, @111818234279875467079  *William Craig*, Instrument Manager, NuSTAR NASA Mission (http://goo.gl/pQM48) *Alex Filippenko*, Professor of Astronomy, @115631634705580814770  *Fiona Harrison*, Principal Investigator, NuSTAR NASA Mission *Watch this trailer embedded on our event page for an upcoming QUEST TV story on black holes!*Black Holes: Objects of Attraction - An Astronomy Round Table Discussion2012-09-25 18:30:00410

Within a matter of weeks, the Dutch state will seek to exact its punishment on me for being intersex, in the form of a sizeable monetary punishment, despite nothing about the situation which led to this being my responsibility. Even the Dutch courts have admitted this much, yet they still feel that punishment is in order.

Please stand me with me through this last dealing with the Dutch state through moral and financial support to show that it isn't just me and those who donated so far that this punishment is unjust and unfair. 33% of the goal has been reached so far.

Thanks in advance for caring and sharing :)

PSA : Take a look at the cable in the picture below. If you find a deal online for a cable that looks anything like this on Amazon, Ebay, or a site like Alibaba, don't buy it. AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS.

I've looked through my history of reviews online and I have in the past purchased at least 8 different variants of this cable for review. I dug up each of these cables from my collection of bad cables since the SurjTech cable (which looks exactly like the one in the picture) fried my equipment and did some additional testing.

With some exceptions, most cheaper cables you'll buy on Amazon aren't manufactured by the brand that sells them to you. They typically go to some common suppliers with specifications and put their brand on it. (as an aside, that's why cables from iOrange-E, Cambond, F-color, and other brands are so similar in a good way).

In this case,... more »

(as an aside, that's why cables from iOrange-E, Cambond, F-color, and other brands are so similar in a good way).

In this case, there is a common manufacturer for the following brands that I can see on Amazon today : 
* iKNOWTECH
* NXET
* SurjTech
* TRADERPLUS
* SAWAKE

What's troubling is that when I examine the different variants of the cables from this common manufacturer, none of the variants are correctly configured using a 56 kΩ resistor, but their errors are also not consistent!

Here are the types of errors I found with this kind of cable : 
1) No CC termination
2) 5.1kΩ pullup 
3) 5.1kΩ pulldown
4) 10 kΩ pullup
5) Swapped Vbus and Gnd + 10kΩ pulldown

The last kind of cable killed my equipment. It almost seems like the manufacturer is just trying random permutations of settings and pushing out the result into the market. Scary...

Furthermore, and here's the coup de grace, EVERY one of these cables claim to be SuperSpeed 10gbps USB 3.1 cables with the logo (the SuperSpeed trident below), the packaging, and the Amazon listings.

Every single one of these "strong" braided cables are missing the 4 additional SuperSpeed wires + 1 ground return needed by SuperSpeed. This is such a terrible deception. :(

I urge anyone to keep an eye out for this kind of cable and simply ignore it. I will leave as many negative reviews as I can, but it seems like random sellers pop up on Amazon and elsewhere selling this deceptive product every day.

Only a number of years ago Venezuela seemed like a virtual paradise, with no one being poor and a seemingly thriving economy. Today, the same country is on the verge of bankruptcy as both its currency and economy have suffered extreme losses while the current government seems to refuse to want to accept the reality of the situation.

While the sun and wind are free, extracting power from them is not. The massive investments in grid extensions and efforts to keep the grid from destabilising due to unreliable power from solar and wind installations are causing rising costs for operators in the UK, Germany and Denmark.

These costs will increasingly find their way to the bills paid by their customers, adding to the already highest energy costs in the EU.

An interesting view at the options we currently have to eliminate the problem of disease-carrying mosquitoes.

Of these my favourite probably is making mosquitoes no longer carriers for disease through genetic manipulation. It's more realistic than wiping out an entire species and should have the fewest side-effects.

The message of IS/Daesh has been clear: join us or be destroyed. As Daesh invades more of Afghanistan, the Taliban there is forced to fight back against this enemy.

It shows just how much Daesh destabilises the region  that it stands to wipe out the Taliban and take over Afghanistan. Many countries are reconsidering their stance on interfering in Afghanistan at this news.

Incredible to imagine that these planes will be over 80 years old on average by then, having outlived multiple generations of pilots.

Good summary of just how far the media has gone off-course after the Paris attacks, not critically assessing the facts and statements by politicians, but instead choosing to mostly regurgitate those latter's statements.

That this is a massive and hugely embarrassing intelligence agency failure. They had all the data, all the facts, all of the relevant people known and in sight, and still they allowed these attacks to happen. No additional laws, no ban on encryption would have helped here.

None of those responsible for this failure at these intelligence agencies or associated politicians are willing to take the responsibility - or the fall - for these horrific attacks. Yet at the same time they are more than willing to betray our trust even further by eroding our freedoms even further.

1942 - Canada Exiles Its Japanese Citizens in an act of Of Ethnic Cleansing 

We’re all pretty familiar with the shockingly horrific treatment of thousands of Japanese-American citizens during World War II. Less known is the fact that Canada not only did the same thing, but at the end of the war, they forced many of their own citizens back to Japan, a war-torn country that many of them had never even seen before.

After Canada declared war on Japan, Major General Ken Stuart stated, “From the Army point of view, I cannot see that Japanese Canadians constitute the slightest bit of menace to national security.” His words didn’t matter in the least, and by February 1942, orders were given to evacuate all Japanese Canadians and relocate them into what were deemed “protective areas.” Thousands of people were given a matter of hours to collect what they could before being loadedonto trains an... more »

1942 - Canada Exiles Its Japanese Citizens in an act of Of Ethnic Cleansing 

We’re all pretty familiar with the shockingly horrific treatment of thousands of Japanese-American citizens during World War II. Less known is the fact that Canada not only did the same thing, but at the end of the war, they forced many of their own citizens back to Japan, a war-torn country that many of them had never even seen before.

After Canada declared war on Japan, Major General Ken Stuart stated, “From the Army point of view, I cannot see that Japanese Canadians constitute the slightest bit of menace to national security.” His words didn’t matter in the least, and by February 1942, orders were given to evacuate all Japanese Canadians and relocate them into what were deemed “protective areas.” Thousands of people were given a matter of hours to collect what they could before being loaded onto trains and taken to ghost towns. With no running water or electricity, the ghost towns of British Columbia became holding centers for thousands of men, women, and children. About 20,800 people were moved, and of those, more than 13,000 were Canadian citizens who were born in the country. Their property was seized and much of it sold to finance the cost of moving them.

It didn’t end when the war was over, either. Those who were moved to internment camps were given two choices, and neither was good. In order to prove their loyalty to their new nation (which was the only country that many had ever known), they were told that they needed to move to the eastern part of Canada. Those who didn’t want to leave their homes in British Columbia were given only one other choice—repatriation to Japan.

About 4,000 people, roughly half of whom had been born in Canada and a third of whom were under 16 years old, were shipped back to Japan. It was only in 1949 that they were given the option to return to Canada, to their original homes in British Columbia, with all of their rights and citizenship privileges restored. Rebuilding proved all but impossible, especially considering that new immigrants from Japan were only allowed into Canada with changes in laws that didn’t happen until 1967. - listverse.com___

The first victim in the war on genetically modified food appears to be reason. Despite a lengthy, 20-year approval process during which no differences were found between this breed of genetically modified salmon and wild salmon, and the GM salmon being better for the environment, activists still proclaim it to be a danger to the environment and human health.

Looking at their motivations, it ironically seems more likely that it are big multinationals this time who are trying to destroy this small company trying to bring this new type of salmon into the market through fear, uncertainty and doubt. Techniques perfected by self-professed environmental activists including Greenpeace.
