Listen to Children Who’ve Just Been Separated From Their Parents at the Border — ProPublica

quote [ ProPublica has obtained audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children can be heard wailing as an agent jokes, “We have an orchestra here.”

The desperate sobbing of 10 Central American children, separated from their parents one day last week by immigration authorities at the border, makes for excruciating listening. Many of them sound like they’re crying so hard, they can barely breathe. They scream “Mami” and “Papá” over and over again, as if those are the only words they know. ]

Trump and his supporters and enablers are a bunch of evil fucks who must be defeated.

Multiple Deaths After Earthquake Hits Osaka in Western Japan

quote [ A strong earthquake knocked over walls and set off scattered fires around metropolitan Osaka in western Japan on Monday, killing at least three people and injuring more than 300.

A 9-year-old girl was killed by a falling concrete wall at her school, and the two other fatalities were men in their 80s.

The Fire and Disaster Management Agency said 307 people were treated for injuries at hospitals. Most of the injured were in Osaka — Japan’s No. 2 city bustling with businesses. Osaka officials did not give details, but the injuries reported in Kyoto and three other neighboring prefectures were all minor. ]

Japan is living on the edge.

Selfblending Sunglasses

quote [ For the lazy people who don't want to waste time putting on and of their sunglasses! I have made the first pair of self blending sunglasses! ]

It's a youtubes video. The dude's kind of a mad scientist/inventor/comedian. I like his joy and surprise when his goofy invention kind of works.

Happy Bloomsday, readers and/or drinkers!

GOES-17 Releases ‘First Light’ Imagery from its Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI)

quote [ While experts continue to address an issue with the cooling system of the satellite’s imager, new views from GOES-17 show that its ABI is providing beautiful – and useful – imagery of the Western Hemisphere.

GOES-17 is the second in a series of next-generation geostationary weather satellites. Like GOES-16, its sister satellite operating as GOES East, GOES-17 is designed to provide advanced imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth from 22,300 miles above the equator. ]

I'm quite fond of this stuff.

FBI Is Asking Everyone to Reboot Their Routers to Stop Russian Malware Infection

quote [ More than 500,000 devices in at least 54 countries are believed to have been infected by the malware, known as VPNFilter.

The FBI made a bombshell announcement on Friday that is only starting to gain a bit of traction over the weekend. Russian hackers have developed a sophisticated malware system that has already infected hundreds of thousands of routers. The good news is that the recommendation on how to combat the infection is easy enough—turn it off and then turn it back on again. Anyone who has a home or small office router should go ahead and do that just to be safe. ]

Reboot that router, it's about the least you can do.

Ireland Is More Likely than Ever to Vote to Legalize Abortion

quote [ On Friday, Ireland goes to the polls in a historic referendum that could overturn one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the world. It’s a landmark moment: giving the Irish public the biggest chance to change the law since a 1983 referendum when the population voted by 67% to enshrine in the constitution an equal right to life for a mother and a fetus. That vote came in the wake of the 1973 Roe v. Wade case in the U.S. that decriminalized abortion, prompting Irish conservatives to fear their own country could follow a similar path. ]

Ireland has a big decision to make, Americans and facebook are helping.

Genetic sleuthing again IDs a murder suspect in a cold case

quote [ The arrest of a second murder suspect with the help of genetic genealogy raises worries that suspicionless searches may be next.

On May 17, detectives in Washington arrested 55-year-old William Earl Talbott II of Seatac for the 1987 double murder of Jay Cook and Tanya Van Cuylenborg. A new DNA sleuthing technique called genetic genealogy led to Talbott’s capture. His arrest came just weeks after police in California used the new trick to identify a suspect in the Golden State Killer case ]

This is out of the box, now. Worries about misuse, making suspects of innocent people, etc are about five years too late.
