Everybody in the Know is talking about Black Holes

Forget the Mueller reports, President Trump, Democrats vs. Republicans and Make America Great or Small.

The big news is the black hole now visualized by astronomers and pictured here.

First black hole ever imaged.

Everyone is “astonished” by the clarity of the image, but let’s admit that is’s pretty blurry. That having said it’s in a different galaxy and thousands of times more distance than our own super-massive black hole in the Milky Way Galaxy.

But idiots here on Earth, brainwashed by political propaganda, are all about what’s going on with the Mueller report. Yes, the president is an idiot and guilty. Get over it. Look above.

Will Trump be Re-elected in 2020?

No president of the United States can serve in office for more than 10 years. That means a sitting president can be re-elected for a second term

Polls show that Donald Trump’s approval rating has gone down to around 35%. The polls indicate voters don’t like him. So that should tell us he won’t serve a second term.

But my head still hurts just how badly the predictions of 2016 went south. Hillary Clinton was regarded as the candidate to win the election by an impressive margin. The New York Times gave her a very wide chance of success, even though as the night progressed it became obvious the two candidates switched sides and Trump won by a wide margin of electoral votes.

Since then I’ve become a critic of polls. They obviously don’t work.

Will “Space Force” Militarize Space?

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, wants to create a new branch ​ of the military with equal but separate powers with the air-force. He calls it “Space Force.”

I don’t think this sounds like a good idea. Are we now going to militarize space? The Internet is already producing thousands of images to mock the idea.

If an intelligent alien came to Earth, would it have the same rights as humans?

Well, now that the President is taking away rights from humans who are from alien countries, I’d think it would be worse for an alien coming from another planet. I suspect they would lock the alien up and study it and you’d never hear another word.

How will space be used for military purposes in the future?

It already is being used for military purposes right now as in spy satellites. Even very recently SpaceX was tasked to launch a U.S. spy satellite into orbit but it exploded and the satellite didn’t make it.

In 1984 a Titan 34D rocket launched the KH-9 and KH-11 satellites for “reconnaissance,” and the DSP-2-6R satellite for missile detection. The list just starts there and goes into the hundreds including many intelligence-gatheringsatellites and so on.

And, by the way, not just by the United States, but other governments as well.

Furthermore, the Chinese government once shot a missile to destroy their own satellite in space just to say the could, and they succeeded, vastly increasing the dangerous debris cloud floating now in orbit. It was a military demonstration.

President Trump did something Presidential

In one of the first “Presidential” things our President has done since he took office, Trump seems to be on the verge of having a summit with the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, and I have to give Trump credit for doing that.
We were seriously concerned with losing Hawaii or Los Angeles with one of his bombs and now Mr. Kim seems to have realized we have a crazy President, like him, and he’d better have talks or we might not have a North Korea anymore.
Meanwhile the Earth is melting, but at least the U.S. is not missing a city.
 

What nobody is telling you about the cyberattack

By Wayne Boyd May 14, 2017: There are many aspects to this ransomware attack that have yet to be mentioned.
All of the systems attacked, it seems, are running older, unpatched, sometimes even illegally cloned versions of Microsoft Windows. The cyber attackers are using ransomware that exploits these older versions of Windows. Essentially they tell their victims that if they don’t pay their files will be deleted. If their system had been updated, then the attack would not have been successful. Everybody knows this.
Issue number one:

  • Microsoft demanded money for an upgrade.
  • When people didn’t pay up, cyber terrorists demanded money through ransomware.
  • Microsoft did not orchestrate the attack, but essentially they did demand money for already functioning operating systems. People were sandwiched between two parties, both demanding money to keep their system safe.
  • Microsoft did, after the fact, cave and provide upgrades for free.

Issue number two:

  • There are alternate secure operating systems that do not cost money to purchase, install and keep upgraded.
  • Save money, drop Windows, install Linux, run your hospital, package delivery company or government on open-source software.

Issue number three:

  • Bitcoins. The alternative currency. It’s legal. It is so secure, in fact, that the cyber attackers are demanding they be paid in Bitcoins. This is the currency of the future. I read in an article that Bitcoins was a form of cyber currency used by criminals. Well, guess what? Criminals use paper money too, and non-criminals use Bitcoins too..

Good News Bad News

All news is bad news. Bad news sells.
Increasingly, however, there are human interest stories dubbed “happy news” at the end of news broadcasts, but it seems to diminish in the light of the chaos that I see going on the world.
Cyber attacks, White House in turmoil, Trump increasingly isolated, Russia buzzing our planes within 20 feet, North Korea, the terrorists in Syria and Afghanistan, firing the one guy in charge of investigating the President.
Even if you get all your news from Fox and Rush Limbaugh, surely you must sense there is chaos. Every other major news organization in the world is reporting on it.
It’s depressing. I’m really trying to understand.
I’d like this blog to steer towards science, but sometimes, I just have to say something.
So here it is: something.

The Country is Split in Three

It’s not a 2 party system, it’s a 3 party system.
There’s the Democrats, there’s the Republicans and there’s the Tea Party who are radical right wingers.
The problem is that the President is Tea Party, and Tea Party to get recognized identified themselves as Republican.
President of the United States Donald Trump proposes something.
Tea Party likes it.
Republicans are divided.
Democrats hate it.
Dead in the water!
