The Temperature Adjustment is Revealed

Knowing how the global warming affects our earth is quite simple. judi bola You just need to look at the average temperature of your country and compare it with the data from the past. You will find that today’s temperature is much higher than the past. However, you won’t surprised with this data, because, global warming problem is widely known today. But, what if the real temperature isn’t as low as what you can find on many resource that provide information about this matter. This is what Paul Homewood trying to uncover and share to public. There is bad thing happen behind us and some party uses everything to cover it up.

The Data from South America
Homewood found the odd of the temperature data when he checked the data from 3 weather stations in Paraguay. There is new adjustment that has been made in these stations. The actual data said that the temperature change trend isn’t getting cooler, but, warmer. The most shocking thing would be how long the change or adjustment has been done. From the data he found, the change actually started 60 years ago, when there is temperature increase in 1940. Homewood reveals his found in this blog and hopefully this will become the main concern of many people, that our earth today face serious problem.
Next Found
Homewood doesn’t want just use the data from those three weather stations in Paraguay. He wants more data about this odd adjustment. Then, he went to other weather station in South America. This time, he tries to look at the data that was made by Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN). They are the institution that is owned by US government. Homewood also uses data from Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) and the National Climate Data Center (NCDC). We can say that these two institutions has big role in providing the data that we can find today. They have job to take measure of temperature for the wide area of our planet. Plus, their data also become the reference of many scientist and politician for knowing the real condition of global warming. And, Homewood also found some odd in their data here. Apparently, there is also problem that is related to the reliability of the data from Giss long time ago. In 1987, the data that was published by James Hansen show that the temperature in Arctic from Giss in 1940 is totally different with reality. It was much higher than what they shown on that time.
The Reason
Homewood does all these stuff, because he concern about what happen in Arctic today. The polar ice in Arctic can be said is on the track to vanish forever. It becomes even worst with the population of polar bear that become lower and decrease from day to day. Of course, this will become our responsibility. The temperature adjustment is wrong. Even if it was for avoiding panic in many countries, but, this is the reality. Knowing it is the best thing, so, all human can take an action from now to solve global warming problem.

The End of Kringsollfonna Glacier Is Near

We all know global warming has become one of serious threat for our beloved earth. One of the sign how worst this problem is the increase earth temperature. The effect is global. There are many changes, and mostly, they are changing into bad or worst condition. One of the saddest changes happens in Norway. One of the ancient ice patch or glacier is reported will be gone in just few years. judi online The ice patch that we are talking here is ancient glaciers in Sør-Trøndelag, called Kringsollfonna. The great thing about this glacier is there are many ancient things that can be found in this glacier. There is ancient shoes and even 5000 years old arrowhead. Actually, the glacier was able to survive the similar problem in the Middle Age. However, today, the condition is totally different. The temperature can be said much wilder and it makes this ancient glacier melt faster.

The End of Kringsollfonna Glacier Is Near1

The Kringsollfonna Glacier
Glacier isn’t snow patch. If snow patch can disappear because of the season, the glacier doesn’t. The glacier happen naturally because the condition of that area. Glacier is also moving. So, it’s not only a snow fall that is collected in one area. But, it’s an ice area that moves following the temperature change. Then, according to scientist from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the glacier in Kringsollfonna is moving much faster than last year. This condition happens because the snow under the glacier is melt faster. Therefore, the water or slippery layer in the glacier increases. This make glacier can easily move around. This is actually natural movement, but, because there are many snow patch melting, the movement isn’t natural anymore. It can give bad thing in many things. First, the ancient object that perfectly preserved inside the glacier will be gone forever. The glacier acts as the compartment that sealed those objects from outer oxygen that can damage the object.
The Effect to Ecosystem
The researcher now is trying hard to prevent further damage for glacier of Kringsollfonna. It is because this glacier has important role on the ecosystem in this area. It doesn’t act as preservation for ancient object only, but, it also can stabilize the temperature in this area. Kringsollfonna is the area where live many different fauna species, including the endemic reindeer that can only be found in this area. So, when this glacier is gone, they don’t have other place to live, which mean it will end up with extinction. The worst thing that these researcher found is the time that they have to solve this problem is very limited. In one or two summer, the glacier will be gone forever. This is also the main reason why these researchers try to get as much support as they can for their effort to keep and save the glacier of Kringsollfonna. Hopefully, their effort will end with best result for all of us. Of course, it’s not only for glacier in this area. All countries in this world should change their way to see this world. Global warming is serious problem. It’s responsibility of all humans in this world to solve it.

Ukraine Crisis, the Testing Ground for the New Russian Weapons1

Ukraine crisis reminds us about the impact of the modern warfare. Look at the Eastern Ukraine now and you will see how the modern warfare change a country. War is not just giving the huge impact to the conflict areas. It can be felt by the world and affecting the world too. But there is one thing that people need to understand. The role of the modern weapons may change the direction of the war itself. Even worse, the conflict area has been used by several parties to test their new weapons.

Ukraine Crisis, the Testing Ground for the New Russian Weapons2

Ukraine Crisis, the Testing Ground for the New Russian Weapons2

Hi Tech Weapons
Ukraine does not have the intensive modernization to its military. As the result, the Ukraine’s army suffering the effect. In this war, they have to fight the separatist pro-Russia without the modern weapons. In the other side, pro-Russia has been equipped with the modern weapons from Russia. There are a few examples about it, UAV and electronic warfare. It has been used for targeting and surveillance. In 2008, these are the weaknesses of Russia. But they developed it intensively and show this weapon in the Ukraine crisis. In the other side, Ukrainian government does not have it and become the huge disadvantage for them.
The weakness of Ukrainian army is not just about lacking of UAV. They also weak on the secure communication system. Their communication is easy to break and become an easy subject for jamming. As the result, the location of the troops is easy to identify and allows the pro-Russia artillery to attack them.
The New Tanks and Missiles
Ukraine conflict is not just showing us about the damage of the war. It shows us about the new tank model and missiles may change the war. Compared to the Russia, Ukraine force is outclassed. One side, pro-Russia separatist has been equipped with the more modern tanks and the long range missiles. Ukrainian force also lack on the anti-armor weapons. All of these systems are behind the Russian military equipment. Ukrainian aircraft is not effective to fight the pro-Russia. Even many of them losses on the conflict zone. Pro-Russia separatist is well equipped with the air defense. They can fight Ukrainian aircraft easily with the modern missile system. The missile system is not just effective for the long range but it is also effective for the shorter range and the low altitude.
In the other side, Ukrainian army is also lack on the medical support. This is why all of those systems and medical support are on the Ukrainian request list. On the war, medical support is vital. It improves the survivability of the armies.
Ukraine Crisis and the Role of Russia
The role of Russia to this conflict is not too surprising anymore. The pro-Russia separatist weapons are just a few evidences. Intelligence also confirmed it and see how Russia supplying weapons to the pro-Russia separatist. Although they do not admit it yet, the proof looks undeniable. This is why the United States and the several European countries accused Russia. But whatever it is, Ukraine crisis has been eliminating many lives from the both sides and taking the innocents to the fear and desperation.

Russia will get 200 New Aircraft1

The Massive Military Budget
Russia has the big concern about its military. For military expansion and modernization, about 20 trillion rubles has been budgeted by the government. It means Russian military will receive more and more military power every year. Under the Defense Procurement and Acquisition program, Naval Aviation and Air Force will get 88 helicopters and 126 military aircraft. More than it, the long range aviation will also be set on 80%.
Russian minister of defense also underlined the improvement of the Russian Air Force on 33% with the serviceable status on 67%. It means, there will be 2 of 3 aircraft to operate anytime. It makes the government priority to get clearer. Under the Defense Procurement and Acquisition program, Russia government will improve the military specifically on the air force.
The New Russian Military Power
In December 2014, the authority of the Russian military confirm about this information. But in this information, Russian military will only get 150 new aircrafts. Looking to the latest information, it seems the number of the aircraft has been updated. The order of the new aircraft has been confirmed too. On the order, there are multipurpose Su-30SM, Sukhoi Su-34 bombers, Su-35S fighter jets, Ilyushin Il-76MD-90 transport planes and Yakovlev Yak-130. And based on the Sputnik News, Russian military also get the rotary wings which is including Mil Mi-28N attack helicopter, Kamov Ka-52, Mi-35 combat helicopter, Mi-8AMTSh assault transport and Ka-226 utility choppers. Su-35D is on the quality assurance trial. And Su-35S is on the test and will enter the service in this year.
Russian Military Industry
The Russian military industry has known as one of the most advanced military industries. They are active in improving their military and serving the other country by exporting the military weapons. Su-35S which is available on the market has been sold at $85 million. Of course, this is the export price. But the price is still competitive even cheaper than Eurofighter Typhoon and Dassault Rafale which produced by the Western European.
Russian military also continuing and developing the 5th generation of Sukhoi T-50. This aircraft will compete with the other 5th generation fighter from China, Shenyang J-31 and Chengdu J-20. As the 5th generation fighter, the next generation of Sukhoi T-50 will be expected to have the better stealth feature and radar evading feature too. This aircraft will also be a good alternative for F-35 Lighting II, it expected to be sold 1,000 units on the global market. And of course, it is coming in the lower cost too.

Ebola Infection Suddenly Rise by Itself

Ebola Infection Suddenly Rise by Itself

Ebola Infection Suddenly Rise by Itself

The last year is the difficult time for the West Africa. But when Ebola infection looks coming to the end, the downward trend just suddenly reverse. It looks surprising of course, especially considering the downward trend that reaching the lowest rate since the end of 2014. In the other side, the additional help from the US military will be withdrawn from Liberia soon. If the Ebola infection is growing, US government may take the different action.

Ebola Infection Suddenly Rise by Itself1

Ebola Infection Suddenly Rise by Itself1

Ebola Infection is Rising Again
Based on the health officials, there are 124 new cases in this week. This number is growing and getting higher than the last week which only has 99 new cases. It happens on Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. In Sierra Leone, there are 80 new infections or growing about 15 cases from 65 cases on the last week. Guinea also experiencing the same thing with 39 new cases from 30 cases on the previous week. Liberia, which is reaching the highest success also reported 5 new cases. This number is a little bit higher than the previous week which only has 4 new cases.
Whether it is going to get worse?
The new trend course looks quite worrying, but it does not mean it will be the beginning of the worse things. Thomas Frieden, the director of the Disease Control and Prevention for the US center said the new record in the last week will not make a trend. One thing that can be seen from this phenomenon is about how difficult to reach zero infection rate. It takes a long time and need a hard working.
There are about 200 staffs in the West Africa. They are tracing people who exposed to the Ebola virus and treating the infected people. They are working here for a long time and working so hard to reduce the infection rate. The previous record is giving a new hope, but reaching zero rate is not easy. Although the turn of the downward trend looks so clear, the medical staff stills working hard to make the zero rate.
President Obama Shut down the US Military Operation
On Wednesday, the USA Today reported the withdrawal of the United States troops. In several weeks, the US military will come to the home and leaving 100 service members in the end of March. The mission of this troops is clear, building training center and clinics in the several locations. This is to improve the treatment act and reduce the Ebola virus infection. But considering about the situation and the rate of the Ebola case, they will be withdrawn soon.
IMF Grants $100M Debt Relief to the Ebola Countries
Treating Ebola virus give the high financial burden to the infected countries. At least, there are 3 countries suffering this epidemic. To relieve the financial burden, IMF grants $100M of debt to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. More than it, IMF also urged the other lenders to make the similar action. IMF also offered the new interest of free loans to the West African that reached $160M.

The Moscow Times has been hacked

The Moscow Times has been hacked1

For the second time, The Moscow Times has been hacked and down for a few times. The hacker criticized the pro-Kremlin commenters and accused the media as anti-Putin. As the result, the site cannot be accessed in the morning. On Wednesday evening, the media group confirmed this targeted attack but until now, the actor behind the cyber-attack is still unclear.

The Moscow Times has been hacked2

The Moscow Times has been hacked2

The Motive is still Unclear
Nabi Abdullaev, the newspaper’s editor confirmed this attack too. But he did not know about the motive behind it. In December, the Moscow Times also being a targeted DDoS attack. It disrupted the site and flood it by the huge traffic. This attack disabled the site for about 2 days. But the latest attack looks not similar. Nabi Abdullaev said this is not a DDoS attack.
Political Issues
Cracker is working for a specific purpose. In the past, the most of them are just working just for popularity. But recently, the motive is growing and become more serious such as politic. The number of the commercial hacker is growing too. Their target also being focused on the ideological enemy. One of the most popular attack is DDoS. The most powerful DDoS attack also experienced by Russian website in the beginning of 2014. Qrator Labs revealed the trigger of this attack which is clearly related to the Ukraine crisis.
Hacker attacks specifically in Russia decreased in quantity, but it becomes more powerful than before. Compared to beginning of 2013, the damage is getting larger and more difficult to handle. In 2013, there are more than 4,400 distributed denial of service attacks. But in 2014, the number reduced up to 2,700 cases. But when it talks about the powerful attack, the number is increasingly up to 5 times and reached 7% of the total attack.
Government also being target
Russian media is not the only target. In recent years, government sites also being target, especially on the elections. The attack to the media sites and the government sites is growing. But this is too soon to classify it as a political attack. Although it has a political purpose, the main reason is still about money. Professional hacker do not really care about politics. They just working for money. For some of them, political instability is good for business.
The Moscow Times and Its Critics
The Moscow Times is a daily newspaper that based in English that founded in 1992. Since the tension between Russia and the West has risen, the newspaper criticize Russian government with their articles. Even a columnist from Russia, Israel Shamir accused this media as a militant anti-Putin paper. For him, the Moscow Times is a western press that supported the West.
The Moscow Times runs opinion articles from the Russian conservative commentators. Maxim Shechenko is one of them. It also published many contents about the critical state policy. A few times ago, Julia Gorbunova also criticized Russian government about the human rights in Crimea. Considering about the number of critics, Vladimir Putin signed the new law that limiting the foreign entities on the Russian media. Of course, this is to get more control to the Russian media.
