>Brazil’s oldest and most important historical and scientific museum has been consumed by fire, and much of its archive of 20m items is believed to have been destroyed.

>The fire at Rio de Janeiro’s 200-year-old National Museum began after it closed to the public on Sunday and raged into the night. There were no reports of injuries, but the loss to Brazilian science, history and culture was incalculable, two of its vice-directors said.

>Rio’s fire chief Colonel Roberto Robaday said the firefighters did not have enough water at first because two hydrants were dry. “The two nearest hydrants had no supplies,” he said. Water trucks were brought in and water used from a nearby lake.

Fucking Brazillians. I am actually mad that they managed to destroy this beautiful museum with a bunch of Portuguese artifacts brought from Portugal by their first Emperor to the ground. The museum was also previously used as the palace of Portuguese kings when they fled to Brazil.

The problem with fossils is in how they react to extreme heat. Just as glass bottles shatter in freezers as the ice expands so too will extreme heat shatter objects by expansion of air in cracks and the sediment itself.

This is 95% chance the likely reasoning, although honestly probably what's going to happen now is everybody is just so tired of poltard shitposting they're going to start getting pushed off in general. I have mixed feelings about this in the same way I have mixed feelings about keeping children offline.

On the one hand it would indeed be nice to get the worst, most retarded people offline away from where I have to deal with them. On the other hand you can't magically go back to pre-Eternal September days and I am overall opposed to regulating the internet, however these are also exactly the people who with an ounce of power the first thing they'll do is try censoring information and controlling and censoring the internet.

Be it noted that Las Vegas itself is literally a US city that was built by organized crime. Both the Italian mafia and Jewish mafia worked to help transfer the US gambling and vice capital from Atlantic City out to the middle of the desert where they wouldn't be so bothered by the cops. But this is, I think, a special sort of level of Capitalist dystopia
>It’s no wonder, then, that hosts often become engrained in their client’s personal lives, being invited to weddings, birthdays, sports events, and kids’ graduations. They get to dip into the casino’s coffers for gifts that will cement the bonds, says Kelly Van Aken, vice president of national marketing. That can be anything from a fabulous bottle of wine to an $18,000 Birkin bag, or a hand-delivered platter of Peking Duck from their favorite Vegas restaurant.
Imagine having a company basically founded in a sea of organized crime hiring employees to be your "friends" and come to special personal events to shower you with gifts so that you'll stay happy with the corpo and keep gambling your money away there. Also nowadays like half of these people are Chinese or East Asians.

I've been reading about this gambling industry in USA and elsewhere in these past months. They're the largest employers in Nevada by far, and MGM is one of the biggest employer nationwide, it hires more than 50k people

They're also most of the most expensive buildings in the world, if you exclude infrastructure stuff (like nuclear powerplats), both in Vegas, Macau and Singapore, the three big gambling cities of the world today.

And the biggest hotels in the world

They also have the highest wages in USA for hotel-related jobs, more so than fucking Florida or NY.

I read somewhere that due to all of this success other states and cities decided to also allow gambling, which made gambling industry spread nationwide and las vegas lose its importance. People don't need to travel to Las Vegas to satiate their gambling addiction anymore, and because they don't need to travel there anymore they also don't consume the other services in the city and its hotesl, so it all falls appart. But Las Vegas is still growing, the Wynn complex is still being built and it's going to be a multibillion project (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wynn_Las_Vegas)

Also in Europe there are small towns that live entirely from a specific casino, and Monaco owns most of its success to the Monte Carlo casino too.

Gambling is a major source of revenue to state budgets. Funnily enough NY was the first to come up, but it is the case with lots of states other than NY. There's also lots of riverboat casinos around the South which I think might be a mostly Southerner thing https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/louisiana/articles/2018-01-16/louisiana-lawmakers-to-consider-riverboat-casino-changes basically it has to do with state laws about gambling on the land so they just set up casinos on boats for people to gamble up and down the rivers. Riverboat gambling is such a prominent part of American history that we've got one funny origin of a poker term from it
>The River:
>The last card dealt in Texas Hold'em and Omaha, also called "fifth street." In a five card stud game, the river is dealt face down to each player individually.
>To make a winning hand on the river, as in "rivered." (verb)
>One credible theory is that the term came from the Mississippi riverboats on which poker was played in the 1800's. Sometimes, cheaters would purposely deal a final community card that would improve their own hand. If caught, they would often be thrown overboard, into the river, thus giving the "river" card its name.

Gambling nowadays ultimately is about entertainment, not addiction nor trying to make easy money. People already spend a lot of money in entertainment these days, might as well entertain yourself while trying to make some money out of it (sure 99% at best only recover part of their money, but some do get out of it with more).

The point here is that in this age of middle class with big wages most people have just too much money to spend on superfluous stuff, and they spend it on experiences mostly. Tourism, fine dinning, gambling and other stuff like that, there's a term for this "transumerism" (https://www.investopedia.com/terms/t/transumer.asp) which is basically a new kind of consumer focused on spending his money on experiences rather than ownership. The term was firstly coined to classify consumers of airports, by the companies who owned such places, because they had to focus on ways to make money out of the passengers while they were still in the airport, this way they could charge less fees from the airlines, which means even more flights and even more passenger-costumers in the airport; basically the airport becomes a shopping center. But term gained popularity among market analysts and social scientists when they perceived this pattern of consumers who want to spend their money on experiences, rather than buying stuff. They are typically educated waged people with somewhat high wages (thus the airport thing, typically executives who spend a lot of time traveling around paid by the company), they have no reason to buy stuff because they make their money out of the knowledge that they have in their area, and thus offer their services instead (again executives, consultants, analysts, bureaucrats, etc), and are highly paid for it. The term latter expanded to middle class in the first world today, because they all are waged people (and thus don't need to worry about accumulating wealth, and worry about accumulating knowledge instead) with too much money to spend. So they seek to buy experiences rather than buying stuff (except house and car), tourism and fine dining are the two biggest forms of transumerism, but gambling is also a form of experience-entertainment. This is why gambling industry is being legalized everywhere in the world in these past decades.

Think about the amount of money that teens and young adults spend on games these days, specially with these luck-based microtransactions, it is basically gambling already, but worse than gambling because they can't make real money out of it. Hipsterism too is a consequence of transumerism, people paying a lot so that they can consume unique products (usually food). Light drugs such as marijuana too are at least part a consequence of this form of entertainment and consumption. The whole point in the end is that as long as we're living in this age of middle class, this age of waged people who earn too much, all of these experience-focused forms of consumption will go on making a lot of money, the middle class itself will demand that they should be legalized, and like I said they really aren't gambling because they're addicts or because they're trying to become rich, they're gambling just because they want to spend their money.

This might be harder for you to perceive because USA was the first country with a sizeable middle class with strong purchasing power, so your society has been in this situation for longer and still spearheading it.

3- less than one day later China calls out the bluff and puts tariffs on a bunch of murkan product at 10%, saying that they'll raise it to 25% if murkya also raises theirs to 25%

Dr. Cavalli-Sforza was a pioneer in using genetic information to help trace human evolution, history and patterns of migration. The founder of a field that he called genetic geography, he was renowned for synthesizing information from diverse disciplines — genetics, archaeology, linguistics, anthropology and statistics — to explain how human populations fanned out over the earth from their original home in Africa.

David Reich, a professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, said in an interview that Dr. Cavalli-Sforza was the first scientist to predict that there would be “enough information in genes to determine where people came from in the world and who they’re most closely related to.”

By the way if you're interested I recommend checking out a recent episode of the geneticists Spencer Wells and Razib Khan's podcast, The Insight, which is dedicated to discussing the life and legacy of Cavalli-Sforza.

I thought an article in last weeks Private Eye might be worth a look regarding Ukraine. The idea of Ukraine's future president having his campaign bankrolled by skimming from African projects and shady Cypriot arms dealers...I mean it's supposed to work the other way, surely?

>Russia turns the eastern quarter of your country into a warzone and you lose one of your most lucrative regions to illegal annexation
>Economy tanks, people getting carbombed everywhere and constant ko-ko-ko spam for over 4 years
>End up back in the Russian orbit anyway

Do Ukrainians just want to suffer?

Ukraine's future president is either Tymoshenko, literal Ukrainian speaking pro-Western populist from Western Ukraine, Poroshenko, current president and the guy who was pro-Western before 2014 and whose business was harassed in Russia for his political views by the Russian government, or Vakarchuk, very popular Ukrainian singer from Western Ukraine, son of former minister of education of Ukraine. Little is known about Vakarchuk's political views, but he speaks only Ukrainian and never expressed views supporting Russia. Also, there are two smaller candidates: Gritsenko and Lyashko, both of them are real Russophobes and wouldn't never support Russia.
Boiko ain't popular and he doesn't has a chance of winning popular vote. The first rule of Ukrainian politics in 2018: pro-Russian candidate can't become president. A third part of Ukrainians still like Russia and only 10% of total population vote for the single pro-Russian party in this country.

>End up back in the Russian orbit anyway

“He said something about it must’ve been a shock to these people in The Dalles that such a vile person was among them and that he learned how to purify himself. “The last 20 seconds of the video I think are interesting because he leaned back and he said ‘It’s good to be king.

The problem is the coupling of a shitty economic system with basic human nature. Consumer Capitalism is by far the worst economic system ever devised.

>Do you guys think we're just luddites and internet connected paperweights, scissors, digital socks, etc. are the future?
No, it's the simple issue of people with a massive economic stake in the market having enough money to try and manufacture non-existent demand. A lesser degree of this is accessorizing, where if you buy the Barbie, then there's a million useless fucking plastic things that go along with it, or you get one medication prescribed and that drug causes so many side effects you get prescribed two more drugs, with each causing their own side effects. This is one reason why older people end up with literally a dozen different drugs they're taking.

A big problem with the system is that it's not concerned with anything but making more money for the sake of having money, regardless of harm to anything else including regardless of long term economic self harm. It's a dead end system and they'll build new societies on the ruins of our dead civilization like the mounds of Cahokia.

The problem is they spend exorbitant sums of money to try and make new shit things you don't need and never will need and for some strange reason people keep buying them. One family members does this and it irritates the everloving fucking shit out of me. Come to think of it, this is usually a problem with females having easy credit and lots of cash, hoarding useless shit nobody has any use for.

A good example is the sort of infomercial channels in the US. You know this half hour long commercials with people like Billy Mayes? Those are for the halfway successful products. There are tons of patents and shows for cheap plastic crap that nobody has any use for. In these cases the people hawking their products hope to use the media and advertising to generate a currently non-existent demand for a product whose supply they control.

Naturally, Amazon is trying to do this shit by tying Amazon corporate crap into every single thing where you don't need it, like a coffee maker or fridge, and then try and convince you that you needed it all along.

>doesn't America have a deadhand switch to its nuclear arsenal?

No, that was shut down in 1991. Allegedly the Russian's still operate the Soviet system but I find that a little dubious given territorial changes and financial environment since the end of the Cold War.

At any rate the deadhead switches within both the USSR and USA were by design only activated in times of international crisis. So if a conventional war broke out in Europe the Soviet leadership could turn it on affording some opportunity to give pause to unverified readings before pushing the button. Then the machine still had certain oversight functions like monitoring communication links to central command before delegating final launch authority to hardened bunkers. It's horribly misunderstood imo given the machine made nuclear war less likely by removing the anxiety of decapitation strike.

At least it's better than the entire British nuclear arsenal being fired off if BBC Radio Four goes off air. Think about that when the Remembrance Day moment of silence drags on this year posing the real possibility that Moscow could end up glowing in the dark for it.

It's an irritating case to read about because Chile is being held to account for essentially being a bro. I'm glad the court ruled as it did because it risked upending the idea of states having open-ended chats and assessing the feasibility of solutions.

Morales also gave zero fucks when the OAS told him to reopen dialogue with Chile but then relies on OAS treaty for his submission that demands peaceful resolution of disputes. Are the Andean peoples always this insufferable?

Chinglist told me English was finished, I told her come on we got a good few years left, joge was not accepted, I re-worded this into they had no English language information and why would the Chinese go to a Tourism office.
They are usually herded in big tour groups, which force them into bus trips, where they have to stay 3-4 hours in certain malls to buy stuff or visit certain restaurants.
Meanwhile 200k people(made up figure), cross the border into Hong Kong to buy ......
Cosmetics, shampoo, babby milk, chocolate, clothes, every day.
The lack of a sales tax is not the reason, the reason is there is no trust in Chinese products and branded products in China have a high chance to be counterfeit.
Go to certain areas, you will see the traders or tourists pack a suitcase on the floor, throw rubbish on the ground and fill case with skin whitening products, shampoo, obligatory 4 cases of babby milk powder and other mundane shit.

You have to stop and ask why have they travelled at least two hours to buy shampoo, answer because they will sell fake shit which will kill you in China.

Told not to buy milk while in China because you will at best get kidney stones, worst die.
Young boys especially just get taught to pee in public, a busy side walk, anywhere, just pee straight on the ground no modesty.

For some unknown reason a lot of people on imageboards think that Russia is
  1. a religious country, which is not true
Russians themselves widely consider the orthodox church corrupt, especially a lot of younger people dislike the church. I think that Russian orthodox church is indeed more corrupt than the protestant or catholic one, the Moscow patriarch is quite a controversial figure
When sexually frustrated /pol/tards talk about religion and religious population, they primarily care not about faith in Christ, tolerance or love, but about racism, religious discrimination (primarily discrimination of Islam) and ability to get a virgin gf. You can google average age of virginity lose and everywhere Russian numbers would be placed among "degenerate" Western countries.
2. country that persecutes gays. Well, it's true, they won't throw you in jail but propaganda of gay relationships is forbidden and overall there's a negative attitude towards homosexuality in Russian society.
3. country that persecutes ethnic and religious minorities. Totally untrue, that's one of the most retarded things that I have heard on English imageboards, only totally clueless man that knows nothing about Russian domestic policy would hold that opinion. Even Putin is not an ethnic Russian nationalist, in words or in deeds, the Russian government encourages migration from Central Asia and subsidizes the economically backward ethnic republics, especially enormously huge subsidies despite the small population gets Chechnya.

Many Western politicians whom I read believe that Russia is trying to destabilize and divide Western societies by supporting the foreign ethnic nationalists, while strictly adhering to a tolerant religious and ethnic policy at home, thus reducing social tension and speeding up assimilation and creation of civic single Russian identity.

People are much more radical and nationalistic now, Ukrainian government tries to scapegoat the Russians as hard as possible, mainly because it allows the Ukrainian elites to slow down the reforms that hurt the oligarchs' interests. Although the Donbas war has ceased to be intense and there are only 1-10 dead per week now, Ukrainian TV channels still tell the news from the frontline and talk about dead Ukrainian soldiers. I'm afraid that even if the country will successfully westernize and carry out economic reforms, there eventually could be Poland, Hungary, Russia-like political backlash with authoritarian right-wing nationalistic parties corrupting the country.

Anyway, before 2014 the only Ukrainians who really disliked Russians were from Western, most nationalistic regions of the country. It was mostly Holodomor that corrupted our current relations, neverthless a lot of Ukrainians don't think that Russians were at fault there. And now the Ukrainian communist party (10% of the parliament in 2012) is banned, communist symbolic is banned, monuments to Lenin and other communists are destroyed, cities, streets and villages renamed, figters of UPA ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_Insurgent_Army ) are officialy fighters for Ukrainian independence. Because of the events of 2014, there is an obvious confrontation that cements Russia as a natural enemy of Ukraine, an external enemy that unites people of both countries.
Ukrainian identity and the moderates has long needed aggression from Russia, which would prove that the Russians cannot be trusted.
