Eurasia Review: The Year Of The Robot Carer: Top Emerging Technologies Of 2019

The World Economic Forum announced this week its annual list of breakthrough technologies with the greatest potential to make a positive impact on our world.

The technologies on the list, which is curated by members of the Forum’s Expert Network, are selected against a number of criteria. In addition to promising major benefits to societies and economies, they must also be disruptive, attractive to investors and researchers, and expected to have achieved considerable scale within five years.

“From income inequality to climate change, technology will play a critical role in finding solutions to many of the challenges our world faces today. This year’s emerging technologies demonstrate the rapid pace of human innovation and offer a glimpse into what a sustainable, inclusive future will look like,” said Jeremy Jurgens, Chief Technology Officer at the World Economic Forum.

“Technologies that are emerging today will soon be shaping the world tomorrow and well into the future – with impacts to economies and to society at large. Now that we are well into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it’s critical that we discuss and ensure that humanity is served by these new innovations so that we can continue to prosper,” said Mariette DiChristina, Editor-in-Chief of Scientific American, and chair of the Emerging Technologies Steering Committee.

The top 10 emerging technologies of 2019 are:

  • Bioplastics for a circular economy:
    Only 15% of plastics today are recycled. Meanwhile, biodegradable
    plastic lacks the strength of conventional materials. This year’s
    breakthrough comes through using cellulose or lignin from plant waste,
    which increases mechanical strength and doesn’t use crops that could
    otherwise be used for food production.  
  • Social robots:
    Robots today are able to recognize voices, faces and emotions,
    interpret speech and gestures, respond to verbal and non-verbal cues,
    and even make eye contact. They’re increasingly being used to care for
    the elderly, educate children and do all sorts of tasks in between.  
  • Metalenses: These
    lenses so small that, up until now, it has been impossible to make them
    through traditional glass-cutting and glass-curving techniques. A
    breakthrough in the way lenses are produced will allow further
    miniaturization in sensors and medical imaging devices.  
  • Disordered proteins as drug targets: “Intrinsically
    disordered proteins” are proteins that can cause cancer and other
    diseases. Unlike conventional proteins, they lack a rigid structure,
    which makes them difficult to treat. Now, scientists have found a way to
    prevent their shape-shifting long enough for treatment to have an
    effect.  
  • Collaborative telepresence:
    Imagine video conferences where you can not only feel as if you’re in
    the same room as your correspondents but can actually feel one another’s
    touch.  
  • Smarter fertilizers:
    Much of the improvement in fertilizers over the years has been in
    enhancing their ability to slowly release nutrients as and when they are
    needed. The drawback is that they still contain ammonia, urea and
    potash. The latest versions use more environmentally friendly sources of
    nitrogen, plus microorganisms that improve take-up by plants.  
  • Advanced food tracking and packaging:
    Locating the source of food contamination can now take minutes rather
    than days as a result of a novel blockchain approach to monitoring
    food’s progress through the supply chain. Meanwhile, sensors in
    packaging can tell us when food is about to spoil, reducing the need to
    trash whole batches once an expiry date is reached.  
  • Safer nuclear reactors: The
    great risk with nuclear power is that the fuel rods can overheat and,
    when mixed with water, produce hydrogen, which can then explode. New
    fuels are coming online that are much less likely to overheat and, if
    they do, produce very little or no hydrogen. These new configurations
    can replace existing fuel rods with little modification.  
  • DNA data storage:
    At the rate we are producing data, we probably have less than 100 years
    before the magnetic or optical storage systems we use at the moment
    will reach maximum capacity. These systems also consume huge amounts of
    energy. DNA, life’s storage material, has no such limitations. According
    to one estimate, all the world’s current storage needs for a year could
    be met by a cube of DNA measuring about one metre on a side.  
  • Utility-scale storage of renewable energy: Lithium-ion
    batteries will likely be the dominant technology for the next five to
    10 years and continuing improvements will result in batteries that can
    store four to eight hours of energy – long enough, for example, to shift
    solar-generated power to the evening peak of demand.

Eurasia Review: Amateur Astronomers Play A Part In Efforts To Keep Space Safe

Heavy traffic is commonplace on Earth but now congestion is becoming
an increasing problem in space. With over 22,000 artificial satellites
in orbit it is essential to keep track of their positions in order to
avoid unexpected collisions. Amateur astronomers from the Basingstoke
Astronomical Society have been helping the Ministry of Defence explore
what is possible using high-end consumer equipment to track objects in
space.

When the Basingstoke Astronomy Society (BAS) heard about Dstl’s
Space Programme they were keen to find ways that they could help. Dstl’s
team came up with an idea that would help them to find out whether a
low-cost distributed network of cameras could make a worthwhile
contribution to the future UK space situational awareness effort.

The amateur astronomers used commercially available telescopes,
tripod-mounted DSLR cameras and low-light cameras to record images of
satellites such as the International Space Station, Cryosat, and Remove
Debris. By collecting accurate time stamps for the images, Dstl were
then able to process the data and compare expected orbits to the data
provided by the astronomers.

Dstl were pleased to find that for low Earth orbit satellites, down
to about the size of a kitchen freezer, small aperture prosumer level
lenses and cooled CCDs similar to those used by amateur astronomers, are
capable of monitoring their positions and maintaining a reasonably
accurate orbit.

“The accuracy of the exposure timing is absolutely critical, and
requires some attention to detail” explains Privett, “the BAS
astronomers were very good and clearly highly talented so together we
formed a good team”.

“We found there are no obvious impediments to using commercially
available kit to provide small component of a more capable and diverse
system for monitoring space, where satellites of importance to UK
communications, economy, and defence operate”.

The ability of such a relatively low-cost and deployable approach to
data gathering is being examined to ensure Dstl can provide the best
possible guidance and advice to UK Government in its future
procurements. The full technical results from the collaboration will be
published later this year.

Trump Investigations from Michael_Novakhov (96 sites): 1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump is hiding a dirty little secret

Donald Trump is hiding a dirty little secret that will end with his imprisonment. For someone who sold out his country years ago, Trump has continued to pretend to work towards “America First,” despite all evidence to the contrary. While it is clear that Trump illegally inherited nearly half a billion dollars, the facts prove that Trump would be practically broke, if not for assistance from the mob.




Despite the mainstream media continually refusing to espouse the fact that Trump is owned by the mafia, the facts remain the same. According to a recent article in the Washington Post, Trump is literally owned by the mafia. As stated by Craig Unger, the former deputy editor of the New York Observer, “for more than three decades, at least 13 people with known or alleged links to the Russian Mafia held the deeds to, lived in or ran criminal operations out of Trump Tower in New York or other Trump properties.”


As he goes into his reelection campaign, Trump’s previous actions do not disappear. His life, as a member of the mob, are again well documented by Jeff Stein, a columnist who covers spy agencies and national policy topics, who has stated “The Trump Organization had long been awash in illicit Russian money, author Craig Unger claimed in a 2018 book, House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia. “It started out as a simple money-laundering operation at Trump Tower in 1984, when a Russian mobster came to Trump Tower with $6 million in cash and bought five condos.”



The post Donald Trump is hiding a dirty little secret appeared first on Palmer Report.

President Trump has added military flourishes to the July 4th celebrations in Washington, DC. Critics have questioned the militarization of a holiday that has traditionally foregrounded the non-martial courage of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. A group of lawyers, farmers, and merchants defied the most powerful empire in the world by producing a single sheet of paper containing a list of political grievances and a declaration of abstract philosophical principles. That document was powerful enough to channel a revolution, turn colonists into Americans, and inspire democratic movements around the world long after it was written.

Leaked chats suggest judge Sergio Moro collaborated with prosecutors

“URGENT: Car Wash’s secret conversations,” read the e-mail subject that The Intercept Brazil sent to its subscribers on June 9, a Sunday, around 6 p.m. It was not a usual time for updates, even less for breaking news.

The Brazilian branch of the US news outlet had just published a series of stories revealing leaked private Telegram messages exchanged over the past three years between prosecutors and judges overseeing Operation Car Wash, calling into question the integrity of what is arguably Brazil’s largest anti-corruption probe.

Since it was launched in 2014, the Operation Car Wash investigation has led to the arrest of dozens of high-profile businessmen, politicians, and lobbyists — as well as six former Latin American presidents, including Lula da Silva who represented the Worker’s Party as president of Brazil from 2003 to 2010.

The Intercept Brazil’s series shows that Sergio Moro, who in 2019 became President Jair Bolsonaro’s Justice Minister, has advised and directed prosecutors throughout the operation. A federal judge stationed in the southern state capital of Curitiba, Moro has become a folk hero in Brazil in recent years after the Car Wash investigation brought down wealthy and powerful people on an unprecedented scale in Brazilian history.

In April 2018, Lula surrendered to the Federal Police after Moro handed him down a 12-year sentence for receiving a beachfront apartment in exchange for contracts with Brazil’s state oil company Petrobrás. In August, a court forbade him to run for a third term just as he was leading the polls for the October 2018 vote, paving the way for second-favorite Jair Bolsonaro to secure a victory.

Leftist activists have long contended that Moro and the Car Wash prosecutors were driven by partisan politics and legal experts — many with no particular sympathy for the Worker’s Party — have long disputed the evidence against Lula.

Now, The Intercept’s leaks seem to support those reservations as they show that Moro colluded with the prosecutors all along. Chat excerpts show that Moro anticipated one of his decisions, suggested they replace a prosecutor that he deemed “too weak” before an upcoming hearing, and even recommended a potential witness who claimed to have evidence against Lula to the prosecutors. Legal experts argue this violates penal code provisions that ban judges from informally aiding either side of the process.

Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept’s founder and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for his reporting on the United States’ National Security Agency spying program, has said that the chat history delivered to The Intercept’s newsroom is a larger file than what was handed over by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Speaking with Global Voices, The Intercept Brazil’s Executive Editor Leandro Demori spoke about his team’s groundbreaking work and the stories that have now trended on Brazilian social media for weeks under the hashtag #VazaJato (a pun with the Portuguese word for “leak” and Car Wash’s Portuguese name, “Lava Jato”). “What we are doing is what the Operation Car Wash always said they did: fighting corruption,” he said.

Without specifying a date, Demori said that the news outlet received a file from an anonymous source. To ensure protection, The Intercept doesn’t reveal any details about the source or the format of the file. Demori said of the process:

Foi um trabalho de reportagem antiga, olhar documentos, fazer apurações paralelas… Acredito que o Intercept foi escolhido por isso […], por sermos reconhecidos por fazermos esse trabalho.

It was all traditional reporting work, looking at documents, doing complementary reporting… I think that The Intercept was chosen by this source because we are recognised for doing that kind of work.

Demori highlights that earlier in 2018, The Intercept Brazil published an investigation into Rio de Janeiro’s paramilitary militias and their links to politicians. He said:

Acredito que o Intercept seja visto como o lugar onde existe uma forma de dar a informação com coragem.

I believe that The Intercept is seen as a place where there is a way of providing information with courage.

Hacker narrative

Moro and the prosecutor have neither denied nor confirmed the veracity of the chats. They have, however, contended that the messages were obtained through hacking, which is a crime in Brazil.

In a note released on June 9, the Car Wash prosecutors say their devices had been targeted shortly before the publication of the first stories, but The Intercept claims they had received the data long before the alleged attacks.

Demori commented on this:

Mas quem reforça a narrativa de invasão não é o Intercept. O Intercept não fala em hackers. Talvez eles imaginem que seja sem contexto, mas podemos garantir que o processo jornalistico foi fidedíguno à ética. O que está publicado foi o que foi dito, são mensagens que não podem mais ser “desditas” simplesmente por contestar o contexto.

Whoever reinforces the invasion narrative is not The Intercept. The Intercept does not talk about hackers. Perhaps they imagine that this is missing context, but we can assure that the journalistic process was trustworthy when it comes to ethics. What is published is what was said, they are messages that can no longer be “unsaid” simply by challenging the context.

Part of Brazil’s mainstream media has focused on the “hacker narrative”. Outlets connected with Globo Group, Latin America’s largest mass media organization, have centered their reporting on the legal implications associated with the alleged attack, in detriment of the content of the leaks. Other large publications, such as magazines Veja, IstoÉ and Exame, also covered the case from a cybercrime perspective.

Telegram has denied that their servers were breached:

History of leaks

Moro and the Car Wash prosecutors aren’t strangers to the power of leaks. In the entire five-year history of Lava Jato, preliminary and official testimonies, secret plea bargain agreements, and even wiretapped phone calls were constantly leaked to the mainstream press, which helped galvanize public support for the operation.

An infamous case was in 2016 when Moro lifted the veil over a wiretapped phone conversation between former president Lula and then-sitting president Dilma Rousseff. The call suggests Dilma was about to appoint Lula as chief of staff so that he could avoid prosecution, as cabinet ministers can only be tried by Brazil’s Supreme Court.

The conversation was broadcast on national television only hours after it had taken place, and protests erupted in many Brazilian cities right after.

Moro stood up for his decision to release the tapes more than once, claiming that their content was of public interest. For Demori, the media coverage has encouraged the public to believe that, when it comes to fighting corruption, the “ends justify the means”. When asked about the public’s approval of Moro’s decisions, despite its apparent illegalities, Demori said:

Eu acho normal, é o jogo. Cada pessoa tem seus motivos pessoais.

I think it’s normal, it’s the game. Everyone has their personal motives.

Protection

In order to protect its sources, The Intercept doesn’t give any details about materials they’ve received, when or how they’ve received them or if they were addressed to a particular reporter, as Demori explained in a recent radio interview. Speaking with Global Voices, he said:

Asseguramos que os arquivos estivessem em lugares seguros e secretos fora do país, além de tomarmos precauções jurídicas. Esperávamos uma reação forte, nos preparamos para truculências, especialmente provocadas por quem é a lei.

We ensured that the files were kept in safe and secret places outside the country, and we took legal precautions. We were expecting a strong reaction, we prepared for truculent moves, especially by those who are the law.

The Intercept has now partnered with two other Brazilian news outlets — Folha de São Paulo and Veja — that are helping to dig into the material. Folha reporter Ricardo Balthazar said he was able to verify the messages by identifying his own Telegram exchange with a Moro assistant in the database.

Both Sergio Moro and Glenn Greenwald were called to testify in Congress about the leaks. Moro, who as Justice Minister oversees the Federal Police and refused to hand over his cellphone for inspection, was questioned by Senators for nine hours. He reaffirmed his public line of defense — that the messages were illegally obtained and although admitting that they were “partially authentic,” they didn’t prove any wrongdoing on his part.

Greenwald spoke in the Chamber of Deputies. He was asked general questions about the case, the source, and the likelihood of The Intercept Brazil releasing audio files. The journalist has also faced derogatory comments about his family because of his marriage to a left-wing Brazilian congressman, and some pro-Bolsonaro legislators also suggested that he should go to prison for leaking private messages.

Demori said it was hard to gauge what’s going to happen from now on. He compared the current story to Snowden’s whistleblowing, the story that gave birth to The Intercept:

Um técnico que tinha as informações encaminhou o material para os jornalistas e já deu o caminho, já explicou o que era o sistema e os documentos – fez o mapa da mina. Nesse nosso caso, são chats e conversas. Não é uma coisa técnica. A redação está lendo. Mas é um trabalho muito mais coletivo do que individual.

[In the case of Snowden], a technician who had the information forwarded the material to the journalists and gave them the ropes, explained the system and the content of documents — drew the map of the mine, so to say. In this case, we are working with chats and conversations. It is not a technical thing. Our newsroom is reading it. The work is more collective than individual.

He said he does not know what outcome to expect:

Quem vai dizer é a Justiça. Eles vão julgar. Sabemos que há um bem maior, que, no final, se resume ao combate à corrupção.

It’s the Justice that will decide. They will judge. We know that there is a greater good, which, in the end, comes down fighting corruption.
