Darvaza: The Gate To Hell.

More than four decades ago, a crater opened up in the desert of northern Turkmenistan. The story goes that Soviet scientists set it on fire to burn off the  gases after the ground under a drilling rig gave way.

Edit:  Almost forgot, Department of Water Resources Director Bill Croyle is to testify before state Senate committee about the failure of a spillway today.

7:33 am Eastern. Emergency Alert System monthly test broadcast for Los Angeles  - 
"Civil Authorities have issued a required monthly test for the following counties: Los Angeles CA. Effective until 04/25/17   05:25:00 PDT. "

Standard narrative including the phrase: "You should immediately tune to one of those local radio or TV stations , for more on what you need to do to protect your life and property . This concludes this test of the emergency alert system."
I've never heard it phrased quite like that before.

This came over the TV - I'm in the Midwest. We usually get localized alerts from the Emergency Broadcast System.  ???

What are straight lines doing in the middle of the Amazon ?
That's not natural. Loggers clear cut everything.

Check this out. There happens to be a local tribe tribe called the Surui. That's their land.
Nothing special, right ?  Heh, heh, heh.  (I like these guys.)

Apparently, illegal loggers were encroaching on their lands, so the tribe took to killing them off with bows and arrows. The Surui lost 5 chieftains in defending their land. They never had outside contact until the 1960-70's. Don't mistake these guys for backwoods throwbacks to the stone age, though. They have a penchant for technology and traded for it.   :)

That feller in the bottom left corner, the one with the oversized shades, is he, the park ranger?
LOL - That's actually Steven Greer without his makeup.  ;)


Incidentally, today Mˇch@el Hr0n also posted on his blog today that scientists yet again confirmed Bˇlly M€ir'$ "prophetic" material made decades ago.  Both these guys are fraudsters, and it's impressive (to me) to see the exact same kind of language and tactics.
S.O.P & Standard Business Model for hucksters. At least Hoagy can be fun to listen to at times. MH, not really.

I am sick and tired of debunking RCH on this. I have posted stuff about this last year when Darren or whatever his name was made similar claims and if I remember right, expat debunked this as well.
Don't you love the way his ego shines through in it's full glory, with that posting. ;)

Looks like I was a day early. 
That's okay, I can make more popcorn.  :D

" On 27 March 2017, the Eastern Region Helicopter Council (ERHC) notified members and volunteers:

On Tuesday April 25th 2017, at 0800 the Gotham Shield Exercise will take place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford NJ. This exercise will simulate a large scale terrorist attack on the NY/NJ metropolitan area with MetLife Stadium serving as a triage/collection point for victims and emergency response personnel. "

A Tuesday again.     
(I should have known.   ::)  )

(It's difficult finding decent information on this amidst all the woo.)

I know, right? Those Jehovah`s Witness beheading videos are quite disturbing

Hey...  .    Did you hear that ?  That's the sound of my comment going right over the top of your head. ::)


Here's a good one that you might get to see play out - AND IT STARTS TODAY !  ;D

Can anyone confirm these outages on Friday ?

Today is the day:

First, A little background on Operation Gotham Shield.


FEMA Doc. This link will bring up a popup for a PDF download. Use security S.O.P.'s




Worst Case Scenario:
  This is an actual exercise, and if the situation is properly manipulated, (MSM, Google AI and Facebook filters; blocking information on the subject,) it could be spun into an attack by North Korea, or ISIS - or anyone else they choose. Riots ensue after the store shelves are bare. Martial law is enacted. Executive Orders are put into force.

Best case scenario:
  ( Believe it or not, we need exercises like this, to test and discover the gaps in our defenses, but even the Russians inform their populace when an exercise of this magnitude is being carried out.)

Flaws are discovered and corrected. No 'False Flag Operations' are piggy-backed onto this exercise. No one is injured or killed during this operation.
The embedded malware and Trojans in our electrical C2 and grid systems are found, (which I think they already are,) and removed, with the attack vectors closed off. 

What a wonderful opportunity the American population is being denied by not being informed of this operation. No time to prepare, (you should be prepared for something like this anyway.)  No idea how long it's going to last. (24th-26th.) No idea what parts of the country are going to be effected. (Looks like this run is going to hit the major metropolitan areas - hence the name "Gotham". A little more on the name...  There was another military operation that used "Shield" in it's name - Operation Desert Shield - which turned into Operation Desert Storm.)


More Details:

Are they ready ?  Read this - LOL.  ;D

You can bet your ass data collection will be in full swing for this operation.

Damn it was nice of them to plan this for a Monday; so people get a couple of days off of work.   ;D
(Sept 11, 2001 was a Tuesday.)

Pull out the popcorn, flashlights, and propane camp-stoves, it's going to be interesting to see how this unfolds, or even if it does.  ;)

Yeah, these weird excuses seem a bit lame. I recall an Admin showing me, during some issues I had with email and "POP email service" for some other emails or some crap, I am not a techie, how from the server he could get our emails and also showed me a guy I was going to fire (for other reasons- in a RIF during a takeover but said "if I needed another issue for cause") had a fetish for going to "suffocation porn" weird. Belgian dude, it was not girls as victims (bad of course) but some weird type of men/selves being bondage and temporarily suffocated, I guess, and taped up. At the time I thought, we might need to report this, but due to the firing, the "liberal" culture, and the age/self-doing there was nothing illegal in it, I guess. But was weird because dude had family, decent worker (not really but have to say that in reports due to government and culture,) and "too each their own." The German IT guy just laughed and said "they are depraved." I'm thinking, yah, a GERMAN commenting on weird sex fetishes or history?

The other story I heard was that he was not, in fact, cloned, because he was, in fact, a wholly computer-generated actor the entire time.

It's debatable which idea is less plausible, but still--either is more believable than Hillary Clinton.

Note that we are already, in fact, checking Julian's eyelids.
What's his blood type ? RH-negatives can't be cloned.

A little of both but let me see if I can unpack it and you tell me if I'm on the right track or not. We've kind of reached the limit of how many transistors we can cram into a silicon chip so now we're trying to cram as many co-processors into that small space as well to extend the computational power and/or functionality of the microprocessor?  ???

Well, whenever I read about an order of magnitude jump that's pretty exciting. It seemed like we we're stalled for awhile.
That's part of it, but they are also using a different approach. Instead of designing silicon for general purpose use, they are designing it to do one thing only, and to do that one thing very well. In specializing the hardware itself, efficiency in speed and power become easier to realize.
TensorFlow is the name of the specialized software that was designed to run on the TPU.

Found an article that explains it better than I did.  ;)

Thanks but I'm still not sure what they mean by tensor processing. Any ideas?  ???
If you have a discreet graphics card it is referred to as a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) and lives on the PCI-e bus of the motherboard. NVidia Tesla's and Intel XEON PHI's are considered co-processors. Basically, you slam a shitload of CPU cores on a gaming card form factor and attach it to the fastest bus on the motherboard. (The PCI Express slot.) It's a way to increase your computing power, but, they generate heat. Think of heat as inefficiency - wasted computing power.
Co-processors can do basically anything the CPU can.
Now, what Google did, was to take ASICs, (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) which differ from the standard CPU cores in that  in a full custom ASIC, you have total control over the size of every transistor forming every logic gate, so you can "fine tune" each gate for optimum performance. A full custom ASIC performs electronic operations as fast as is possible,  providing that the circuit design is efficiently architected. They are also extremely power efficient.
The new Tensor Processing Units, are specifically designed to do only tensor calculations, which means they can fit more transistors on the chip that do only one thing, and do it extremely well--achieving higher efficiency than other types of chips.
ASICs are very well suited for specific purposes. In fact, if you are going to set up a Crypto-Currency mining rig, ASICs are the way to go. But I digress...
Tensor calculations are the only thing the TSU does. It won't accelerate your graphics or give you more frames per second. It is a pure compute module. But, if you are using it in the context of what was described in the article, highly complicated tensor calculations (for deep machine learning), the calculations can be accomplished exponentially quicker and at a fraction of the power draw of a GPU, Field Programmable Gate Arrays, or Vision Processing Units.

Did that help, or did I just muddy the waters ?

Try this...      ;)

Thanks for the article, Doc. :)
Very interesting.

Holding to the CPU front, here's an article on the chips being used in the ' OSIRIS-REx ' Satellite .
The site itself is a gold mine of information on CPU's and computing components. It's worth checking out if you're into that sort of thing.
(Look to the ' Catagories ' menu on the left hand side. )


OSIRIS-REx: Bringing Back Some of the asteroid Bennu. 

"  The Apollo Group  carbonaceous asteroid Bennu is a potential Earth impactor...          ...NASA decided to just go fetch a bit of Bennu.  Thus is the mission of OSIRIS-REx which was launched a few days ago (Sept 8, 2016) aboard an Atlas V 441 as an $850 Million New Frontiers mission.  "

looking at the setting for attachments thought you could upload images directly.

Direct uploads of pictures puts additional load on MV's server and cuts into the diaper money. It's best to link to an offsite image hosting service.  ;)
All Hail "SAGE" MV       :)

Code select tags also work on this board, so if you want to post tags in a text format, just use the opening and closing ' code '  tags. They kind of work like the ' pre '  HTML tags.
( The ' code '  tag cannot be nested without the escape sequence, whereas other tags generally can. )

Code: [Select]
       [img]  http://  Path / To / Image / Location.jpg  [/img]    ( I've inserted whitespace to make the text more readable. On an actual tag, there is no whitespace between the opening and closing tags  )

Code tags are formatted the same way
Code: [Select]
        [code]  text or code to insert [\/code]
(I had to insert the  \  (backslash)    ^        escape sequence in order for the code to properly display the above closing tag. Ignore it.
It's not part of the tag.
Closing tags are formatted: Forward slash > tag )
