SETI: Prepare for an alien invasion

Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) which is leading the charge in the search for alien life, says that there is no plan if aliens decide to visit Earth.

Mr Shostak blasted the US government for not taking an interest in SETI’s objective and compared the world’s current response protocol to aliens as if neanderthals were to meet the US Air Force.

Speaking to Live Science, Mr Shostak said: “As far as I know, there’s nothing, and I think I would have heard something because of the [SETI] false alarms.

“Some people asked me at a conference last week, ‘What plan does the military have to deal with aliens should they land?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know … but to the best of my knowledge, they don’t have a plan.’

“It would be like the Neanderthals having a plan in case the US Air Force showed up.”

Mr Shostak also dismissed the notion of ‘Men in Black’ – a conspiracy theory that there are government figures who deal with alien and UFO investigations.

He quipped: “If [the government] could afford the ‘Men in Black,’ then they could afford to support SETI.

“It’s not a government program, so they have nothing to do with it. I would love to see some interest from them, but I never have.”

SETI has had several ‘false alarms’ over the years, with the most prominent coming in 1997 which experts believed was the real deal, although it later turned out to be a signal from a European satellite.

However, even when it was believed that aliens had finally made contact, there was still no interest expressed by the US Government.

He explained: “In 1997, we got a signal that looked pretty promising for most of the day. We thought it was possibly the real deal.

“I kept waiting for the ‘Men in Black’ to show up — they didn’t. I kept waiting for the Pentagon to call. I kept waiting for the White House to call. They didn’t call. But The New York Times called.”

seriously..give it up already..if they do come there will be no warning for the slaves..or nothing we can do to stop it..

“Some people asked me at a conference last week, ‘What plan does the military have to deal with aliens should they land?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know … but to the best of my knowledge, they don’t have a plan.”

there is no plan to harness and feed unicorns either..

“He explained: “In 1997, we got a signal that looked pretty promising for most of the day. We thought it was possibly the real deal.”

heres a hint..it wasnt..

Donald Trump announces he’s leaving his business empire

US President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday he will be “leaving his business” to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest while in the White House, insisting he was not legally bound to do so.

In a series of Tweets, Trump said he would unveil his plans at a December 15 news conference in New York with his children.

He said he would “discuss the fact that I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to make American great again!

“While I am not mandated to do this under the law, I feel it is visually important, as President, to in no way have a conflict of interest with my various businesses.”

Mr Trump’s three eldest children hold roles within the Trump empire, which boats golf clubs, office towers and properties in several countries.

The businessman previously said he was considering separating his two areas of responsibility but was confident he could run both “perfectly”.

Russia hackers: German spy chief Kahl warns of election disruption..please..get a grip!

Germany’s foreign intelligence chief has warned that Russia could seek to disrupt next year’s German elections with cyber attacks.

Bruno Kahl said his agency was aware of cyber attacks with no other purpose than “causing political uncertainty”.

“Europe is in the focus of this attempted disruption, and Germany in particular,” he told Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Russia or groups linked to Russia have been regularly accused of such attacks.

Campaigning has yet to start for federal elections in autumn 2017 but Angela Merkel announced last week she would be seeking a fourth term as chancellor.

She told reporters that hacking attacks were now becoming commonplace and people should not allow themselves to be annoyed by them.

She was speaking after a cyber attack on Sunday left 900,000 Deutsche Telekom customers with their broadband service cut off. The German government has not yet blamed any group for the hack but says “it’s hard to tell the difference between criminal activities from a particular state and state activities”.

“Such cyber attacks, or hybrid conflicts as they are known in Russian doctrine, are now part of daily life and we must learn to cope with them,” Mrs Merkel said.

The hackers used malware to target Taiwanese-made Speedport routers and German officials say the attack could have been far worse if the routers had not crashed. “We were lucky this time – the attack didn’t work properly,” said Arne Schoenbohm of Germany’s federal office for information security.

S&P says commodity rally won’t save Aussie AAA

•December 2, 2016 • 3 Comments

http://www.smh.com.au/business/the-economy/sp-says-commodity-rally-wont-save-the-aaa-20161130-gt15ah.html

Ratings agency Standard & Poor’s has warned that it will look past the rally in commodity prices when it evaluates Australia’s fiscal health as the nation’s prized triple-A credit rating remains at risk of a downgrade.

Australia’s sovereign rating has been classified as “on watch” by S&P since July, meaning there is a one-in-three chance it will be lowered.

Heading into the government’s budget update of December 19, the fiscal situation looks considerably healthier than it did at May’s federal budget thanks to the remarkable recovery in the price of coal, iron ore and other commodities.

But S&P analysts are not convinced that commodity prices will stay at these levels because it is largely driven by higher demand stemming from policy in China.

Their bigger concern is that the government keeps pushing out its timing for a return to surplus.

Kim Eng Tan, senior director for sovereign and international public finance ratings, said on Wednesday that S&P was forecasting China’s investment growth slowing.

“In terms of the government’s medium-term fiscal outlook, we are not quite sure that the recent rebound in prices are likely to be of a very big help in helping the government to reach a balanced budget that it promises by 2021.

“Now this 2021 target has actually been pushed back quite a few times over the course of the past few years,” he said, beginning with the initial target of 2013.

i dont think a downgrade is going to happen..but look at the power these ratings companies have to determine and dictate government policy..

Oil prices surge as OPEC reaches deal to cut production by 1.2 million barrels

•December 2, 2016 • 5 Comments

https://www.rt.com/business/368698-opec-reaches-production-cut-deal/

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has agreed to cut supply by 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) to 32.5 million barrels, the head of the organization announced.

Ahead of the official announcement, Bloomberg broke the news, quoting an unnamed delegate in Vienna. Crude prices soared more than 7 percent on the report.

As of 16:29 GMT, Brent crude was trading at nearly $50 per barrel, while US crude benchmark WTI was above $48.

Calling the decision “historic,” the organization said the output cut would be in effect from January 1, 2017.

The deal was reached after weeks of negotiations, as Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran fought for the very last barrel of production. This is the first coordinated cut from OPEC in eight years.

According to the new agreement, Saudi Arabia will reduce its production by 486,000 bpd, the official announced.

Ministers of Iraq and Kuwait said their countries would reduce supplies by 209,000 bpd and 130,000 bpd respectively.

Meanwhile, Indonesia has suspended its OPEC membership and is not taking part in the reduction.

The agreement also expects non-OPEC countries to cut about 600,000 bpd.

Russian Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak welcomed the OPEC decision, saying Moscow would contribute its part if the organization keeps to its commitments.

“The voluntary restriction of production on the part of Russia is linked to the level of OPEC compliance with 32.5 million barrels a day, with adjustment for Indonesia, as well as the maximum participation of the countries who are not members of OPEC,” Novak said.

Russia, the biggest non-OPEC producer, was not participating in the Wednesday meeting, but also committed to cut oil production by 300,000 bpd, President of the OPEC Conference Mohammed bin Saleh al-Sada announced.

In October, Russia pumped 11.2 million bpd, the highest volume since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

what happens when you assume?
