Recently a new species of tardigrade has been found on the Antarctic coast. Mopsechiniscus franciscae is a water bear. These microscopic animals can survive nearly any condition, including a vacuum, because of their ability to enter a deep resting state when water is not available. The new species was collected among moss growing on gravel during a 2011 survey of tardigrades along the coast of Victoria Land, which borders the Ross Sea.

Tardigrades belong to a cosmopolitan phylum that can be found in almost all environments. The capacity of tardigrades to enter ametabolic resting stages when the water necessary for active life is unavailable (due to evaporation or freezing) has allowed species to colonise continental Antarctica despite the extreme environmental conditions found in the terrestrial and freshwater environments. Tardigrades are important members of Antarctic biota in terms of distribution, abundance, and colonised substrates.

Disconcerting photos  capture Israeli spectating of Gaza attacks

As the most recent escalation of violence in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict heats up, targets all over the Gaza Strip are being hammered by air strikes. And while most around the world watch in fear as the bombs are dropped, some Israelis have taken a different approach: enjoying the spectacle.

Emily Fundis ON TUMBLR

The best thing you can do, if you have an animal around, is to just lay down besides them and talk to them, as you would to a very close friend. The world may think you’re crazy but most of them wouldn’t listen with such intensity, love and understanding….as does an animal.

Fear Not Of Men

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem
If you can hear me ladies and gentlemen
Then I’m very happy that you came here

That was for Brooklyn, we get it every time
You got me on? Oh
Shout out to all of my crew, East, West, North, South
All the continent, Europe, all abroad international
Bring it in, bring it in, bring it in, bring it in
A lot of things goin’ on, y’all

21st century is comin’, 20th century almost done
A lot of things have changed
A lot of things have not, mainly us
We gon’ get it together right? I believe that

Listen people be askin’ me all the time
“Yo Mos, what’s gettin’ ready to happen with Hip Hop?”
(Where do you think Hip Hop is goin’?)
I tell ‘em, “You know what’s gonna happen with Hip Hop?
Whatever’s happening with us”

If we smoked out, Hip Hop is gonna be smoked out
If we doin’ alright, Hip Hop is gonna be doin’ alright
People talk about Hip Hop like it’s some giant livin’ in the hillside
Comin’ down to visit the townspeople

We are Hip Hop, me, you, everybody, we are Hip Hop
So, Hip Hop is goin’ where we goin’
So, the next time you ask yourself where Hip Hop is goin’
Ask yourself where am I goin’? How am I doin’?
‘Til you get a clear idea

So, if Hip Hop is about the people
And the Hip Hop won’t get better
Until the people get better
Then how do people get better?

Well, from my understanding people get better
When they start to understand that they are valuable
And they not valuable because they got a whole lot of money
Or ‘cause somebody think they sexy
But they valuable ‘cause they been created by God

And God, makes you valuable
And whether or not you recognize that value is one thing
You got a lot of societies and governments
Tryin’ to be God, wishin’ that they were God

They wanna create satellites and cameras everywhere
And make you think they got the all seein’ eye
I guess, ‘The Last Poets’ wasn’t’ too far off
When they said that certain people got a God Complex
I believe it’s true

I don’t get phased out by none of that, none of that
Helicopters, the TV screens, the newscasters
The satellite dishes they just wishin’
They can’t never really do that

When they tell me to fear they law
When they tell me to try to have some fear
In my heart behind the things that they do
This is what I think in my mind
And this is what I say to them
And this is what I’m sayin’, to you check it

All over the world hearts pound with the rhythm
Fear not of men because men must die
Mind over matter and soul before flesh
Angels hold the pen, keep a record in time
Which is passin’ and runnin’ like a caravan trader

The world is overrun with the wealthy and the wicked
But God is sufficient in disposin’ of affairs
Gunmen and stockholders try to merit my fear
But God is sufficient over plans they prepared

Mos Def in the flesh, where you at? Right here
On this place called, Earth, holdin’ down my square
‘Bout to do it for y’all and y’all at the fair
So, just bounce, come on, bounce
B-b-bounce, bounce, b-bou, bounce

And just, just step two, three
Just step two, three and
Step two, two, three and

One, two, three and four
One, two, three and four
Once again

All over the world hearts pound with the rhythm
Fear not of men because men must die
Mind over matter and soul before flesh
Angels hold the pen, keep a record in time

Which is passin’ and runnin’ like a caravan trader
The world is overrun with the wealthy and the wicked
But God is sufficient in disposin’ of affairs
Gunmen and stockholders try to merit your fear

But God is sufficient over plans they prepared
Mos Def in the flesh, where you at? Right here
On this place called, Earth, holdin’ down my square
‘Bout to represent in your whole atmosphere
‘Bout to represent in your whole atmosphere
Your atmosphere, your atmosphere

That was for you and Brooklyn too

The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control
At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US, says whistleblower William Binney – that’s a ‘totalitarian mentality’
July 10 2014
William Binney is one of the highest-level whistleblowers to ever emerge from the NSA. He was a leading code-breaker against the Soviet Union during the Cold War but resigned soon after September 11, disgusted by Washington’s move towards mass surveillance.
On 5 July he spoke at a conference in London organised by the Centre for Investigative Journalism and revealed the extent of the surveillance programs unleashed by the Bush and Obama administrations.
“At least 80% of fibre-optic cables globally go via the US”, Binney said. “This is no accident and allows the US to view all communication coming in. At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US. The NSA lies about what it stores.”
The NSA will soon be able to collect 966 exabytes a year, the total of internet traffic annually. Former Google head Eric Schmidt once argued that the entire amount of knowledge from the beginning of humankind until 2003 amount to only five exabytes.
Binney, who featured in a 2012 short film by Oscar-nominated US film-maker Laura Poitras, described a future where surveillance is ubiquitous and government intrusion unlimited.
“The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control”, Binney said, “but I’m a little optimistic with some recent Supreme Court decisions, such as law enforcement mostly now needing a warrant before searching a smartphone.”
He praised the revelations and bravery of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden and told me that he had indirect contact with a number of other NSA employees who felt disgusted with the agency’s work. They’re keen to speak out but fear retribution and exile, not unlike Snowden himself, who is likely to remain there for some time.
Unlike Snowden, Binney didn’t take any documents with him when he left the NSA. He now says that hard evidence of illegal spying would have been invaluable. The latest Snowden leaks, featured in the Washington Post, detail private conversations of average Americans with no connection to extremism.
It shows that the NSA is not just pursuing terrorism, as it claims, but ordinary citizens going about their daily communications. “The NSA is mass-collecting on everyone”, Binney said, “and it’s said to be about terrorism but inside the US it has stopped zero attacks.”
