US Secretary of State John Kerry says there is overwhelming evidence of Russian complicity in the downing of a Malaysia Airlines plane in Ukraine.

Mr Kerry called on Russia to take responsibility for the actions of the rebels, saying their handling of the dead had been “grotesque”.

All 298 people on flight MH17 died when it was reportedly hit by a missile.

Russia has been accused of providing the rebels with an anti-aircraft system that was allegedly used in the attack.

Earlier, the remains of up to 196 people were loaded on to refrigerated rail wagons in eastern Ukraine, to be taken to an unknown destination.

Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has called on pro-Russian separatists not to use the bodies as pawns in their conflict with the Ukrainian authorities.

“There are 298 bodies on that site – their families, their loved ones want them home now,” she said.

Intercepted calls suggested a Russian SA-11 missile system had been transferred to the rebels, Mr Kerry said, and the US had seen a video of a launcher being moved back into Russia after flight MH17 crashed.

“There’s [an] enormous amount of evidence that points to the involvement of Russia in providing these systems, training the people on them,” Mr Kerry said on a US TV network.

He also threatened further sanctions on Russia and called on European allies to get tougher with President Putin after the “wake-up call”.

Writing in a newspaper on Sunday, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said Europe and the West “must fundamentally change our approach to Russia” if Mr Putin “does not change his approach to Ukraine”.

UN calls for ceasefire after emergency session..condemns Shejaia massacre

The UN Security Council has called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza after holding an emergency closed-door meeting on the crisis.

The urgent talks came after Ban Ki-moon described Israel’s shelling of a Gaza City suburb as “an atrocious action”.

Sunday was the deadliest day of fighting, with 13 Israeli soldiers and more than 100 Palestinians killed.

US Secretary of State John Kerry is due in Cairo on Monday to discuss the crisis with Egyptian leaders.

The UN Security Council met at the request of Jordan, which is understood to have proposed a strongly worded draft resolution for consideration.

However, members could only agree on “elements to the press,” the weakest form of Security Council action, says the BBC’s UN correspondent Nick Bryant.

Eugene Gasana, Rwanda’s ambassador to the UN, said members had voiced their alarm at the escalation of violence during a “sobering session”.

They also expressed “serious concern” at rising casualty numbers and called for “the respect of international humanitarian law, including protection of civilians,” Mr Gasana added.

“The members of the Security Council expressed serious concern about the growing number of casualties. The members of the Security Council called for an immediate cessation of hostilities,” Rwandan UN Ambassador Eugene Gasana told journalists after an emergency meeting on Sunday.

Jordan demanded the meeting after over 60 Palestinians and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed as Israel shelled Gaza’s Shejaia neighborhood and battled militants in the bloodiest fighting in the 13-day offensive, Reuters reported.

“The members of the Security Council called for respect of international humanitarian law including protection of civilians,” Gasana added.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the killings as an “atrocious action” and called for an immediate end to the fighting, urging Israel to “exercise maximum restraint.”

“Too many innocent people are dying (and) living in constant fear,” he said at news conference in Doha.

Also on Sunday, US President Barack Obama called for an “immediate ceasefire” between Israel and Hamas.

“The situation is intolerable,” Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas said earlier in a televised speech from the Qatari capital, Doha.

“What the occupation forces did today in Shejaia is a crime against humanity,” Abbas said. “Those who committed it will not go unpunished.”

the killing continues..hidden from the world eyes by the MH17 event..lets see how quick a resolution gets drawn up in response to this murder..dont hold your breath..did obama mention it today when speaking or are 500 dead not enough to warrant a care factor?

in the two images..we see jews watching the bombing..and then the victims at ground zero..this isnt a fucking sport!

Why the Apple-IBM deal matters

Apple’s partnership with IBM to tackle the mobile enterprise could have lasting ramifications for both companies—as well as for rivals Google, Microsoft and BlackBerry. It could also make life a lot easier for IT staff at large enterprises.

Apple and IBM announced an “exclusive” deal on Tuesday in which IBM will build a new line of enterprise-specific apps from the ground up for Apple’s iOS, aimed at companies in retail, health care, transportation and other industries.

IBM will create “unique cloud services” for iOS, including tools for security, analytics and device management. It will also resell iPhones and iPads to its corporate customers, and Apple will roll out new support services for businesses.

In other words, Apple and IBM are putting a full-court press on the mobile business market. And they’re doing so in a tightly wedded fashion: The companies used the word “exclusive” four times in a statement announcing the deal.

That suggests Apple won’t run off and do a similar deal next week with Hewlett-Packard. More significantly, IBM, at least for now, is throwing all its chips in with Apple—apparently at the expense of Google’s Android OS and Microsoft’s Windows Phone.

“We are saying these [apps and services] will be specifically for the iPhone and iPad,” said a spokeswoman for IBM, when asked what’s “exclusive” about the deal. “They are the best mobile devices in the world, from our view,” she said.

The deal is significant for several reasons. Apple devices are widely used by businesspeople, but the company has thus far been a “renegade” in the corporate world that slips in the back door with little regard for the needs of IT staff, said analyst Roger Kay of Endpoint Technologies.

“If IBM can come in and say, ‘We’ll make sure this Apple stuff works well with the other stuff you’ve got already,’ it will make the IT guy feel a lot better,” he said.

Under the partnership, the companies will develop more than 100 “industry-specific” iOS apps for businesses in areas like retail, healthcare, banking, travel and transportation, telecommunications, and insurance. IBM will introduce the MobileFirst Platform for iOS,  which will integrate cloud services, device management, security, analytics, productivity, and mobile integration, optimized specifically for iOS. Apple will offer business-tailored AppleCare service and support, which will be available to IT departments and users 24/7. And IBM will sell iPhones and iPads, along with new and industry-specific services, to help businesses worldwide more easily buy and manage iOS devices.

very big news..and the money is in the “apps”..the direct links to websites or services or games that have become the norm for every user of a smart phone..follow the money..

NASA: We will find aliens within 20 years..”will”

•July 22, 2014 • 8 Comments

A series of new telescopes – a magnitude more powerful than the ones already in use – will allow humanity to detect alien life within decades, according to top NASA scientists.

“I think in the next 20 years we will find out we are not alone in the universe,” announced NASA astronomer Kevin Hand, during a public talk in Washington that showcased the US space agency’s top extra-terrestrial life specialists.

While the prediction may have seemed bold, it chimed with the utter certainty of all experts present, fueled by the already impressive work of the Kepler telescope – which is about to be superseded. In just five years, the space observatory has identified up to 5,000 planets, more than in the entire history of astronomy.

“What we didn’t know five years ago is that perhaps 10 to 20 percent of stars around us have Earth-size planets in the habitable zone. It’s within our grasp to pull off a discovery that will change the world forever,” said Matt Mountain, director and Webb telescope scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore.

Since our galaxy, the Milky Way, alone contains up to 400 billion stars, the first results obtained by Kepler are just a tiny sample of information about the universe.

In 2017 and 2018 respectively, NASA will launch a double team of the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and the James Webb Space Telescope, specifically aimed at finding “another Earth”. TESS will have its four telescopes trained on more than half a million suns, monitoring temporary dips in brightness that could indicate that a planet is orbiting a star, and temporarily obstructing the view. The suitable candidates, in the goldilocks zone – meaning they are not too far away and the right temperature – will then be studied in detail by the Webb Telescope, which will study gases emanating from it, to see whether the planet has an atmosphere, and contains water and oxygen.

“Sometime in the near future, people will be able to point to a star and say, ‘that star has a planet like Earth’,” said Sara Seager, professor of planetary science and physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

While the Webb telescope is 6.5 meters long, more than twice the length of the Hubble launched back in 1990, the scientists agreed that a qualitative breakthrough could be achieved once a 20-meter telescope reaches the Earth’s atmosphere.

Such a project is currently limited by the payload restrictions of rockets currently in use. The Space Launch System, currently being perfected by NASA scientists, should be able to deliver a payload of 130 tons, more than ten times that of Russia’s popular Proton rocket.

And even if that is not enough, the alien-hunters still believe that finding a second Earth is just a matter of when, not if.

“Just imagine the moment, when we find potential signatures of life. Imagine the moment when the world wakes up and the human race realizes that its long loneliness in time and space may be over — the possibility we’re no longer alone in the universe,” said Mountain.

————-

so very confident..the modelling must have said it WILL happen..the models never lie..maybe if we look further and further away form our own universe we might find something..because we are damn sure there aint anything lurking around here..good luck alien hunters..the rest of us will get on with living real lives..

Kiev’s evidence of militia’s responsibility for airliner crash faked

•July 21, 2014 • 6 Comments

http://en.itar-tass.com/russia/741521

A tape posted by Ukrainian security services in the Internet and allegedly recording a talk between self-defense fighters about the destruction of a Malaysian airliner is a fake, experts said on Sunday.

A group of experts studied the tape and came to the conclusion that it was made up of numerous unrelated recordings.

“This audio recording is not an integral file and is made up of several fragments,” said Nikolai Popov, a reputable expert in sound and voice analysis.

Specifically, the first of the three audio fragments, in which Gorlovka self-defense militia commander Igor Bezler talks about a plane shot down by the fighters, does not say anything about the type of the plane, the expert said.

At the same time, the name of the town of Yenakiyevo is clearly heard in the tape. However, the town is located about 100 km (60 miles) from the settlement of Snezhnoye where the Malaysian Boeing-777 airliner crashed.

Bezler said the talk had really taken place but the he had talked about a Ukrainian attack aircraft shot down by the militia above Yenakiyevo a day before the Malaysian airliner crash.

The tape’s second fragment consists of three pieces but was presented as a single audio recording. However, a spectral and time analysis has showed that the dialog was cut into pieces and then assembled. Short pauses in the tape are very indicative: the audio file has preserved time marks which show that the dialog was assembled from various episodes, the expert said.

The tape’s linguistic analysis also shows that those who made the faked tape clearly didn’t have enough material and time, the expert said.

That is why, speech fragments can hardly correlate with each other in terms of their sense and the spectral picture of audio materials also differs, the expert said.

But the most indicative moment is that the audio tape clearly shows that it was created almost a day before the airliner crash, the expert said.

The Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 passenger airliner on the flight from the Dutch city of Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur crashed in the area of hostilities between local militias and Ukrainian governmental troops in east Ukraine’s Donetsk region on Thursday, July 17. All 298 people aboard the airliner died in the air crash.

Hamas claims it’s captured an Israeli soldier

Hamas claimed it captured an Israeli soldier Sunday on the deadliest day yet in the battle between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza.

The solider was taken during an early morning operation, according to Abu Obeida, a spokesman for Hamas’ military wing, al-Qassam Brigades.

He provided the supposed soldier’s name and ID.

“He is a prisoner, and if Zionists lie about the dead and wounded, then the fate of this soldier is their responsibility,” the spokesman said.

Gunfire and cheers erupted in Gaza in apparent celebration of the soldier’s capture, according to CNN reporters on the ground.

There was no immediate comment from Israel. The Israel Defense Forces said it was aware of the report and looking into it.

“It’s a game changer, immediately, because it’s going to change what the Israelis are doing on the ground in that sector. They’re going to be looking for him,” said CNN military analyst Lt. Col. Rick Francona.

“Overall, the Israeli strategy is not going to change. They’re committed to this mission,” he said. Though, in the future, Francona said, the Israelis are “going to have to make some sort of accommodation to get this guy back.”

In 2006, Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit was captured. He was released some five years later in exchange for more than a thousand Palestinian prisoners.

Eighty-seven Palestinians died, at least 60 of them in Israel’s assault on the town of Shaja’ia, the Gaza Health Ministry said.

The IDF said 13 soldiers were killed. At a news conference, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed the country’s “deep pain” at the loss of the soldiers.

In total, 425 Palestinians have been killed, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. It’s unknown how many were militants. The United Nations has estimated that 70% were civilians.

Since beginning ground operations Thursday, Israel said, it has killed at least 70 terrorists and captured others.

“We’re doing everything we can not to harm the people of Gaza,” Netanyahu added. “Hamas is doing everything they can to make sure the people of Gaza suffer.”

But people in Gaza who spoke with CNN painted a different picture. “What is happening is a massacre,” said a resident of the al-Remal neighborhood.

100 dead from both sides in one day as the IDF loses 13 in one hit..

“We’re doing everything we can not to harm the people of Gaza,” Netanyahu added

well i would hate to see you targeting them then..you cant send 21st century missiles into suburbs..thats murder..

Microsoft to axe 18,000 jobs as software giant struggles with Apple and Google successes

Software giant Microsoft has announced it is to axe up to 18,000 staff – a seventh of its global workforce – over the next year. Most losses will be in its Nokia arm, the mobile phone business it bought for £4.6billion last September. The firm refused to say how many jobs will go in the UK where it employs 3,500 people at Reading, London and Edinburgh. Microsoft has seen its dominance of the software market wane with the rise of rivals such as Apple. The cull, the biggest in the firm’s 39-year history , is one of the first major moves by Satya Nadella, who replaced Steve Ballmer as boss in February. He had already warned jobs were under threat as part of the Nokia takeover. He told his 127,000 staff: “We will simplify the way we work to drive greater accountability, become more agile and move faster.” Most cuts will take place by the end of the year. They are far deeper than the 5,800 jobs Mr Ballmer axed in 2009.

Founded in 1975 by Bill Gates and Paul Allen, Microsoft had huge success with Windows and Office software but was late adapting to change. Google has become dominant in online searches while Apple’s iPhones and iPads and Android devices have hit the company hard.

its disappointing for the employees but i wont be shedding any tears for microsoft..they buy nokia and then sack most of the staff..should be rules against that sort of bullshit..
