    Chang'e 3

    Interesting to see that some of the ol' rabid HBs are now loudly decrying the landing of the PRC's Chang'e 3 lunar lander and explorer, claiming it is "faked". Laughably, some are using the already debunked "classic claims" from the Apollo days. Of course, some asked if the Chang'e 3 could image the Apollo landing sites; when told that the nearest site was about 1000KM away, a HB posted "How convenient". Thus is the mind of a HB. Congratulations to the PRC on a great achievement.
  7. Hi Terry, Which image numbers do you refer to? I'll get them back up and show where Surveyor is in each image.

  9. KIEV, UKRAINE Days after Russia took over Crimea last year, Ukrainian teenager "Maley" contacted his local army recruitment office to sign up. His calls went unanswered for weeks, so he went to the front with his grandfather's hunting rifle and a brass plate bought by his mother taped to his chest as protection. He joined one of the dozens of volunteer battalions that have made history by holding the line against the Russian incursion. "I went to save my country," he said in a recent interview in a Kiev hospital. He was wounded after the army medic behind him stepped on a landmine and lost both her legs. "She wasn't paying attention. I'm going back." Ukraine has been abused by Russia since declaring independence from the Soviet Union in 1991 and has staged two revolutions -- one in 2004 and another in 2014 - to get out from under Russian puppets. After the last one fled back to Russia, the country's army was virtually defenseless and the Russian incursion has only been stopped thanks to tens of thousands of volunteer soldiers and tens of thousands more citizens working tirelessly to raise money for medicines, equipment and to serve in non-combat roles. They busk for donations or erect tents on town squares to solicit financial help and raise the war's profile. If it wasn't for the volunteer fighters, concluded Italian military think tank Istituto Affari Internazionali, the Russians would be at the Dnipro River by now, swallowing half of Ukraine. "In the spring and early summer [of 2014], volunteer battalions took the first blunt of a war that the Ukrainian security was unprepared to sustain. Under-equipped and light-armed, they held the front, thus giving the Ukrainian authorities the time to regroup and organize a defense," read its March report "Heroes or Villains: Ukraine's Volunteer Battalions." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/diane-m-francis/ukraines-volunteers-savin_b_7832224.html
  10. World powers are reporting surges in airspace violations and instances where aircraft are scrambled to intercept foreign jets, amid a sharp rise in geopolitical tensions in Europe and Asia. Nato member aircraft were forced to conduct more than 500 scrambles over Europe in 2014 – a fourfold increase on the previous year. Nearly 85% of these were to intercept Russian aircraft. This year, there have already been more than 300 scrambles, according to data provided by Nato to the Guardian. These are some of the highest numbers since the end of the cold war. Russia alleges that Nato sorties near its borders doubled last year. Nato called the claim “deliberately vague”. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/aug/03/military-aircraft-interventions-have-surged-top-gun-but-for-real
  11. MOSCOW — The destruction of more than 350 tons of food by the government this week angered Russians in a nation where some are struggling to feed themselves and many recall the norm of food shortages just a generation ago. The food was burned and streamrolled beginning Thursday, following a controversial decree by President Vladimir Putin ordering banned products from Europe and the United States to be eliminated before they can seep through the border. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/08/08/anger-protests-russia-destroys-tons-banned-food/31333793/

  13. Steven, Are you able to get more detailed information regarding electronic voting in Australia? I ask because all my research has not supported what the article said. For example, the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC), the body which supervises all state and federal elections, does not allow online voting: http://www.aec.gov.au/Voting/Ways_to_vote/overseas.htm Now, I thought that "electronic voting" and "online voting" could be different things so I looked into the various ways to vote. All of them refer to the ballot paper; none refer to any form of electronic voting, even for those who are blind or have vision impairment (the blind can vote over the phone; though this might be a form of "electronic voting" I don't think it really forms part of the discussion; after all, you have to prove you are blind in order to use that voting method). http://www.aec.gov.au/Voting/Ways_to_vote/index.htm Ever since I have been eligible to vote, the same basic method has been used and it seems it does not vary: http://www.aec.gov.au/Voting/polling.htm The nearest thing I can find to "electronic voting" is when the returning officers / scrutineers enter the vote count into the "virtual tally room", or when it is used for Senate calculations: http://www.aec.gov.au/media/counting-the-votes.htm http://www.aec.gov.au/Voting/counting/index.htm It must be kept in mind that if any seat or vote were in dispute, the paper ballot forms are retained and so a totally manual count & tally could be done. There is a discussion about "electronic voting" could it be used etc but it would seem to indicate that it has never been used in Australia. http://www.aec.gov.au/voting/report.htm Can you find details of where and when such methods were used in Australia?
  14. Thank you for that; the electronic voting must be in the capital cities because - as I said - we in the regional areas still use paper. I'll have to ask someone about how it worked.
  15. How does this work? We use paper for voting. They are placed into a ballot box which is then tallied by scrutineers.

    Closure of threads

    After discussion with Forum management, it has been decided to close a number of threads in this section of the Forum. This action has been taken because the threads consisted mainly of posts by a single person with no real discussion or debate. These threads had become, in essence, de facto blogs for the people involved. It is preferable that there is a level of conversation within a thread, an exchange of views, a discourse. We therefore request that members give consideration to their posts before creating a new thread: is the post better suited to be part of the newly-created 'News & items of Interest' thread, pinned to the top of this sub-forum? If you decide that a post deserves a thread of its own, then start the thread. Once started, please remember our intent. If someone debates you and then disengages, please do not continue to make post after post with no interaction from others. If you do so, the thread will be closed at the discretion of the Moderators. If you make your point and there are no further posts from people who hold an opposing view, the thread will remain open. At a later date there may be further developments which you wish to bring people's attention to (e.g. changes in Ukraine / Russian conflict, news regarding MH370 wreckage, etc). Thank you.

    Closure of threads

    Steven, You are more than welcome to post those articles in the news thread; that's what it is for. What this Forum is NOT is to be your personal blog on subjects close to your heart. When 95% of a long thread is made up of just your posts, and those posts are just article after article, then it is not what this Forum is about. If you think an article will start a discussion, then create a thread. If no discussion ensues please do NOT continue to post article after article. If you do, the thread will be closed. I strongly suggest you use the news thread for the large majority of your articles. You are not being suppressed; you are being told to make your posts in the appropriate manner.

    6th doctor found dead in a month

    Right - so you can't answer the basic questions. Shows just how desperately you are grasping at straws.

    6th doctor found dead in a month

    And yet you still have been unable to answer the questions: - Can you prove that all the deaths were people "...opposed to 'Big Pharma'..."? - Can you prove that all the deaths were foul play of some type? - Statistically, how many people of the medical community should we have expected to die during the period? - Based on that number, are the deaths you quote statistically significant? Doesn't say much for your position when are unable - or unwilling - to answer some basic questions.

    Nutters come out regarding the latest MAS crash

    Funny how the Russians are blocking any attempt to catch those who fired the missile.

    Nutters come out regarding the latest MAS crash

    I've seen the nutters claim that the MH370 wreckage could not have ended up on the island, that it must have been "planted". As usual, they are wrong: a prior example: http://hamptonroads.com/node/99661

    6th doctor found dead in a month

    Once again a wall a text and a failure to address the hard questions. That's a fail for your proposition, Steven. - Can you prove that all the deaths were people "opposed to 'Big Pharma'"? - Can you prove that all the deaths were foul play of some type? - Statistically, how many people of the medical community should we have expected to die during the period? - Based on that number, are the deaths you quote statistically significant?

    I think that since all posts from #3 onwards have been from Steven we can conclude that this thread has run its course. Thread closed.

    6th doctor found dead in a month

    So you have one person, Dr Bradstreet: police say it was suicide but the family say it was murder. That's not conclusive but let's give it a conditional tick. What about all the others? What about the statistical significance?
