/news/13044 UAE email leak

>The emails provided so far to the The Intercept show a growing relationship between the United Arab Emirates and the pro-Israel, decepticonservative think tank called the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD).

>On the surface, the alliance should be surprising, as the UAE does not even recognize Israel. But the two countries have worked together in the past against their common adversary, Iran.

>On March 10 of this year, FDD CEO Mark Dubowitz authored an email to both the UAE’s ambassador to the United States, Yousef Al-Otaiba, and FDD Senior Counselor John Hannah — a former deputy national security adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney — with the subject line “Target list of companies investing in Iran, UAE and Saudi Arabia.”

>“Dear, Mr. Ambassador,” Dubowitz wrote. “The attached memorandum details companies listed by country which are doing business with Iran and also have business with the UAE and Saudi Arabia. This is a target list for putting these companies to a choice, as we have discussed.”

>The hacked emails demonstrate a remarkable level of backchannel cooperation between a leading decepticonservative think tank — FDD is funded by pro-Israel billionaire Sheldon Adelson, an ally of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is one of the largest political donors in the United States — and a Gulf monarchy.

>Israel and the Gulf monarchies have grown closer in recent years, as both sides fear that Iran is moving closer to normalization with the West and will therefore increase its own influence and power in the region. But admissions of the alliance between the two are still rare in public.

I reckon the Sauds are mindful of the accusations flying around about ISIS funding coming from their country, and so they're trying to make Qatar into a scapegoat.

Perhaps there's some connection to OPEC and the oil production cap, but that's straying a little closer to tinfoil hat territory.

Evening lads,

I have myself a graduate job (£24k/year) and after deductions for various things Ill have £1300ish a month to live off. The job is outside London and I'll need access to the M11, so I've been looking at Walthamstow area. Rent seems to be surprisingly cheap at about £110-120 per week, which'd give me around £800 for expenses each month.

How feasible is this? I'll have to run a crappy car to get to work and honestly I have no idea how much that'll cost. I'm not very good at big leaps like this, I just kind of make it work when I get there but given that I'll be responsible for my entire income and expenses I want to be more careful.

Note: I know I can live outside London but I have friends there and I'd kill myself if I had to live in Bishop's Stortford or Harlow.

Being more central is of no use to me since I'm working outside London, I just want to be connected so I can go for a pint with people I know from time to time without having to crash at a mate's house just because I wanted two pints. It just worries me how all rents in the area in and around London in that neck of the woods are ~£500/month.

Some people also live in shared bedrooms, sheds, sheds in people's living rooms, lock-up garages, cargo containers, derelict petrol stations, brothels, bail hostels, biffa bins, cardboard boxes and shop doorways.

I've heard rumours of people who have their own flat, but I'm starting to believe that it's just an urban myth.

Cornish lad here.

Redruth is kind of shitty, definitely not the nicest town in Cornwall by any stretch (Penzance, Truro and St Ives are all fine, the latter is touristy in summer) but absolutely nowhere near as bad as nearby Camborne, there is something incredibly depressing about that shithole.

Of course, the best part about all of this is that we can't be shot of Trump. Just look down the order of succession and see the cunts that would replace him. Remember that for any of those people on the list to reach the presidency, everyone above them has to come and go, and their jobs have to remain vacant. If Mike Pence takes the reins, only if nobody is appointed to replace him does Paul Ryan get a go.

China has launched a swarm of 119 fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), breaking its previous record of a swarm of 67 drones, according to the China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC).

Interesting article. I've been thinking of a drone purchase for a while - the DJI ones look good, but I have been thinking of building one from scratch - anyone tried building drones/planes?

That is specifically one of the pitfalls I'd like to avoid - too many drones use shitty Wifi networks for communication. I would like to do the whole thing with a proper radio control setup - thats still quite hackable but not in as many interesting and varied ways as Wifi.

I'd recommend starting out with an Almost-Ready-To-Fly or Ready-To-Fly product from Eachine. If you're starting out you will crash a lot, so it's worth starting out on something cheap and small. The Eachine E010 looks like a toy, but it's a really good trainer quad for indoor or backyard flying. It can be easily upgraded to FPV at a later date.

When you're ready to upgrade to a full-size 250 quad, you'll need quite a lot of stuff. It's all fairly cheap individually, but it does add up. This video covers what you'll need and how to use it:

You'll also want a big packet of spare propellers, a spare motor and speed controller and a couple of extra batteries. If you've got a lot of money to spend and you're serious about the hobby, I'd suggest going with the FRSky Taranis radio and the Aomway Commander FPV goggles.

There are some fairly strict legal restrictions on drone operation. You really need to be aware of the rules, because the Civil Aviation Authority have handed out some massive fines to people who were flying like twats.

If there's no camera at all on your quadcopter or plane, it's just a radio controlled model and can be flown anywhere that is reasonably deemed to be safe. If you stick a camera on, then your model becomes a "small unmanned surveillance aircraft" and the rules get a lot stricter. You can't fly within 50 metres of any person, vehicle or structure that is not entirely under your control, within 150 metres of any "congested area", or more than 400 metres above ground level. If you fly with FPV goggles, you must have a competent observer with you, monitoring the flying area to prevent collisions.

ITT: Weird dreams you've had lately.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

I've had quite weird dreams lately.

One dream, two nights ago, was that one of my friends had invented a tampon gun. It was some kind of air pressure operated gun which looked a bit like a toy machine gun, and with which you could shoot cellophane wrapped tampons at people. You would just simply pour a box of tampons into a reservoir on the top of the gun, and they would come out one by one with an audible "Phoomp" every time you pulled the trigger. My friend was having a big laugh just randomly shooting tampons at people, but then at some point, I said, "Mate, that's quite enough now. You need to grow up!"

The other dream was about a garage where I often have my car serviced. They've got a quite cosy customer lounge where you can have tea or coffee and watch TV while you wait for your car, leather sofas and all. So anyway, in my dream, somehow, I was sitting in that customer area, and turning the TV to a porn channel with the remote control, and started rubbing one out. Then I was asked to go into the shop to one of the mechanics and discuss what they had done with my car, and I said to the mechanic, "How are you, mate? Been a while since I was here!". And he replied, "I don't know, Anon... I haven't quite absorbed the fact yet that you just wanked yourself off in our customer lounge!".

What I find much more bizarre is that there are actually people in real life who have built tampon guns:

I honestly had never heard of anything like that before I had my dream.

On the other hand, tampons are almost the perfect non-harmful projectile, when you think about it. They are bullet shaped as it is, they will very probably not do any damage whatsoever to the target that you are firing them at, and the cellophane wrapping should ensure that they will remain rigid enough inside the barrel of an air pressure gun to not disintegrate before exiting it.

In my dream, the tampon gun was much more advanced though than in the two links above. I think it was powered by a CO2 cartridge, similar to a paintball gun. And like I said, it had a reservoir on top where you would just put in a box worth of tampons, and the gun would fire them one by one automatically when you pulled the trigger.

I don't think it's a party political issue. A Labour government instituted the first Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act. Blair was mad keen on identity cards and instituted vast swathes of dodgy counter-terrorism legislation. The majority of Labour MPs voted aye on the final reading of the 2016 RIPA; Corbyn and Abbott both abstained.

I think that the general public are just very ignorant about technology, so the cry that "something must be done" is far louder than any voices of caution. Encryption is too boring and technical for the mainstream media to talk about in any meaningful way.

I'm not blaming either party, that's my entire point. Neither side can be trusted with the internet, because neither they nor the general public understand it. The media has comprehensively failed to communicate the issues and the tech industry hasn't lobbied effectively to defend internet freedoms. There's also a peculiar acceptance of surveillance in this country, as shown by our extraordinarily high per-capita number of CCTV cameras.

Blaming surveillance on the Tories won't help, because a Labour government would do pretty much exactly the same. Parliament is stuffed to the rafters with PPE graduates and old codgers who just don't understand the value of encryption and an open internet. It's up to savvy, privacy-conscious people to push the issue.

>I'm aware of this. I spoke with a schizoid who entered the military. He said that despite the intensity of fear he was experiencing, ultimately, his sergeant praised him for maintaining steel nerves in the face of adversity even though he was just as scared as everyone else.

If my friends and/or coworkers are to be believed, that is also one of my traits. Apart from a few occasions where I have indeed lost it, I tend to be quite calm on the outside in the face of trouble. Inside, I will shit my pants the same way as everybody when there are still mountains of work to do before impossible deadlines can be met, or when my boss has another choleric outburst and says he "will fire the lot of us" (in his otherwise endearing Glasgow accent). Which he never really means, but oh well. But I tend to appear cool as a cucumber on the outside. Which prompted my coworkers to actually give me an original "keep calm and carry on" coffee mug for my birthday one year.

>Exactly. You desire independence from your environment however the reality is that the more dependent you are on something, the more power it wields over you. If you maximise your independence from it, you also maximise your power over it.

I'm still not sold on the way you put this idea about power. For me, it's not a consideration of power. It's simply the feeling that I am most comfortable when I am left alone and not bothered. I've got friends, and I have had romantic relationships, and I enjoy both friendships and relationships as much as the next person. But I always have this feeling that I need much more breathing space than most other people I know. I will for example sometimes disappear off the face of the earth for a week or two, for all that some of my best friends will know, but then reappear out of the blue and pick up again where we left the last time we saw each other. In the past, this has alienated both some of my friends and sometimes also women that I was with, but it is the only way to be for me. Of course, you can't just do a disappearing act on a romantic partner like that, so it was more a kind of tendency to sometimes not call for two or three days but with no bad intentions whatsoever. But even that can be a tough act to follow, especially when you're with somebody who's a bit on the needy side, and who will interpret a stunt like that as a questioning of your entire relationship.

In the end, I'm past the point where being schizoid was an abnormality to me, a hindrance or an obstacle that would have kept me from living a normal life. Nowadays, I try to see the blessings of it, which are that I am both a person who tends not to crack under fear, and somebody who is independent and self sufficient enough that he doesn't necessarily need other people to enjoy himself. Oh, and of course there's my dream world imagination. To tell you the truth, I would sorely miss my imagination if somehow one day it would disappear from my psyche.

>I'm still not sold on the way you put this idea about power
I believe this is because you see me as stating your "true" intentions but that's not the case. Fat people don't have the "true" intention of getting fat, they just enjoy ignorantly consuming tasty food. A lust for the pleasure of food is their intention. Their weight gain is merely a byproduct of their action. I'm only looking at the flow of cause and effect and what effect your actions have.

>For me, it's not a consideration of power
I see this clearly. You don't lust for power. You only wish for peace. I'm just saying: as you create distance, you are simultaneously empowering yourself in much the same way that as you walk in rain, you simultaneously get wet in the rain. The intention is on distance but the effect of the action is empowerment. This calm aloofness is what outwardly and shallowly likens the schizoid to the psychopath.

>and somebody who is independent and self sufficient enough that he doesn't necessarily need other people to enjoy himself
That's good to know. I'm happy you've found happiness however the dynamic is still shifted towards you. You need others less than they need you and so you, despite the focus of your intention being on peace, have in fact empowered yourself. You are the one that can walk away from the bond most easily. Just as you said regarding the romantic-partner hypothetical scenario, she could misconstrue your detachment as a true absence of attachment and gauge you to be sociopathic. She'll suspect that you'll leave her the moment she's no longer useful.

You're a good person. It's just that you'd look evil in my opinion. Personally, I do envy the schizoid. I see it as very useful while Mars and Earth align. I think, in a world-ending SHTF scenario, the schizoids will be the ones to either thrive solo or become leaders of militias.

About the whole pyschopathy thing - I wouldn't be surprised if some people said about me that they could imagine me being a psycho. That I might come off in a certain way to them. But to my understanding, actual psychopaths don't just momentarily switch off and detach any kind of compassion, for it to later be reactivated in some way. They don't feel it, ever, to begin with. That's not the way it is with me. I can detach compassion for a short time, but then it only comes back to haunt me, and often gravely, when I think of what I have done to somebody during one of those moments of emotional detachment and pure self interest.

And I can only tell you what my therapist told me about me. He said that I am more on the benign end of the schizoid gamut. Somebody who ticks the relevant boxes of SPD, but who is also deep down a compassionate human being who is aware of, and cares about the needs and desires of other people. He advised me to spend more time nourishing that side of myself, and to explore ways in which maybe just a few simple words like "I'm happy for you", or "I was worried for you", or "I know how you feel" could sometimes help offset the air of detachment that some people might get from me.

This was coming from somebody who, in a former capacity, actually used to be a court appointed forensic psychiatrist. Somebody who would help courts convict murderers, serial killers, rapists, the lot. He told me he gave up that position because it was "too depressing" for him. His sense of accomplishment in getting justice for victims could not make up for having to delve deep into the abyss of what some people are capable of doing unto their fellow human beings.

He has the tenor to chair the debate and the hands to point at the audience members. John Humphrys has filled in before but he's only a few years younger than Dimbleby. Based on his performances on Newsnight, I'd keep an eye on James O'Brien.

My personal theory based on observations in 2010 and 2015 is that Dimbleby is actually dead and has been replaced by a robot. There's no way a 77 year old could have kept going from 10pm to 6pm with only a couple of hours sleep in the middle.

>That's how you calculate swing from the Conservatives to Labour, specifically .
Erm, yes. That being what swing is. A change in relative vote share between two parties.

>that would be a fucking stupid thing to talk about in an election where the collapse of support for third parties was a major factor.

Well, yes, what with there being literally no other meaningful measure of swing. Otherwise you end up saying stupid things like how Corbyn isn't so bad because he gained 10 points. Then you have to accept other stupid things like how May brilliantly delivered the Tories their best total since 1992 and their best share since 1983. All of which would be monumentally stupid things to say.

Yes, there are in fact other meaningful measures of swing, and two party swing is particularly unhelpful when, I repeat, collapsing support for third parties is a major factor influencing the outcome. Never mind, though. We all make mistakes sometimes.

One rare upside to Trump getting elected is watching the grey, cringing invertebrates who pass for his supporters contort and twist themselves into ever more agonising knots of desperation and irrationality as they rush to defend his latest gaffe.

If you ever question your worth as a human being, take a quick trip over to /r/The_Donald just after Trump fucks up and have a read of the justifications they offer for it. I confidently guarantee you hours of amusement.

No point pardoning him since he hasn't done all that much to support criminal charges. As Comey said to the committee yesterday, it was everyone around him that was doing all that. Manafort, Flynn, Kushner, et al.

Manchester, Leeds, and Sheffield are all decent areas for this sort of thing. They don't call it the Flaps Triangle for nothing. They don't actually call it that.

I might be biased since it's where I grew up, but Newcastle is the easiest city in England for casual anonymous sex.

My advice would be get tinder, pay the premium and start swiping in different locations. You'll find someone tonight, assuming you're at least a 4/10.

Hull woman Gemma Gibbon asked shop for Karpackie lager and ended up in court for 'racist abuse'

A woman too drunk to buy alcohol at a shop has been cleared of racially abusing the manager because she was misheard asking for her favourite Karpackie lager.

Gemma Gibbon, 33, who described herself as an alcoholic, had already drunk "six or seven" cans of the 9 per cent strong Polish beer when she staggered into Sainsbury's in Spring Bank, west Hull, at about 5.30pm on March 28.

The manager declined to serve her, because she "looked intoxicated" and "couldn't stand on her feet", Hull Magistrates' Court heard. Gibbon refused to leave, and was accused of subjecting him to an expletive-laden tirade of racial and sexual abuse.

Opening the case against her, prosecutor Michael Masson said: "She was aggressive, shouting and swearing, and was asked to leave by the store manager. She asked him if he slept with children, asked if he was a P***, and when she continued to be aggressive was again asked to leave. She made declarations that he was a foreigner that slept with children."

Gibbon said: "I was being a bit of a pain, I was a bit loud.I just remember asking for more beer, and because I drink them Karpackies I'd asked for Karpackies, 'cos I drink them every day."

I'm sure he was very much mistaken, but he's one of those chaps who hears some kind of new idiom and doesn't bother to understand its meaning and just imitates it poorly. Dime a dozen becoming diamond dozen and all that.
