  1. Not a surprising occurrence, it's a strategic move in the on-going cyber war; The NY Times published an article on the 15th outlining the escalation of US attacks against the Russian power grid, which is a response to increased attacks and intrusions by Russian assets against US energy and industrial infrastructure. The FBI and DHS have issued multiple reports since 2015 concerning the discovery of attacks and intrusions against industrial control systems (ICS) of US energy and industrial infrastructure. Alert (TA18-074A) Russian Government Cyber Activity Targeting Energy and Other Critical Infrastructure Sectors (March 15th, 2018)
  2. The flying car: From The Jetsons to Blade Runner to Star Wars, the idea of escaping the traffic jam down on the ground and cruising through the sky has always seemed a promise too far out of reach to be real. Source
  3. Neural networks are on the path toward explainable intelligence, which may help speed the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Source
  4. Any headway on this project? Very interested to hear what you've got so far.
  5. I tend to stay away from politics around this time of year and have been making an effort to reduce my involvement concerning politics in general; however this case in particular has been taken widely out of context and being purposefully misreported. The NRA itself is not the subject of the fine, but an administrator that was issuing coverage for the NRA's "Carry Guard" program, New York State fined Lockton Cos., LLC $7M, which the NYS DFS claims was providing insurance coverage for "acts of wrongdoing", meaning the insurance and the package itself wasn't unlawful, but it's coverage of certain "wrongful" acts is. However, NYS DFS never goes on to explain or define what those unlawful acts are... The NRA's case is a preemptive action to bring attention to what clearly appears to be a legal witch hunt by the Governor's Office, which Gov. Coumo clearly established with his comments of willingness "to put the NRA out of business 20 years ago" and that one of the oldest civil rights organizations is an "extremist organization".
  6. Ok, so I moved over to Wordpress, MUCH better. I've also started my compiled list of resources one can use in their OSINT research. Commodore-Euphrates OSINT
  7. Thanks, It's something I've considered writing on for a while. Unfortunately it was a bit quick and dirty due to time restraints, I had wanted to go into more detail on the varying sects a bit more and have the overall piece more grammatically refined, hopefully I'll have time to clean it up and add more detail in the future. One of my many complaints with Blogger, they do have a section to adjust the column's width, but it just shows a message stating it's not applicable. I've been thinking about moving to a more updated site that has better support, most likely WordPress.
  8. If anyone is interested, I'm curating a open source intelligence blog centered around defense and civil emergencies/global weather impacts. Commodore-Euphrates OSINT Blog
  9. Hope you and the girlfriend had a good time, we missed the state fair here, too busy to go.
  10. Thought I'd provide some updated photos;
  11. Fuck. Puddin was awesome, why do good people have to be taken? I wish and pray the best for his family.
  12. Awesome! I'd love to hear more on his service history once you get his DD214, if you don't mind sharing.
  13. I'm a few months late in replying, but if you haven't already you might find some information with the Naval History and Heritage Command, they maintain quite the historical archives. I also recommend contacting the National Archives for access to ship deck logs, duty rosters, ect... https://www.history.navy.mil/ If you haven't already you can obtain a copy of his DD214, as well as his other service records from the National Archives WWII Records collection. https://www.archives.gov/research/military/ww2 https://www.archives.gov/personnel-records-center/military-personnel Once you have his records, if it's something you's like to do you could order any ribbons, insignia, and uniform fixtures he was awarded and earned to place in a nice shadow box for display. Be sure to inquiry about photos during his time in service, there may be crew photos, candids, or other photos within the archives that aren't apart of the written records that he may be in. Also, don't feel awkward making inquiries or requests, that's why the archives exist.
  14. Speaking of active development; http://www.dreamcastlive.net/blogs/
  15. Excellent clarification, Storm. Thank you very much for posting it, this coming from a fellow pro-nuclear energy supporter. My only bone is where you state the events at Chernobyl and Fukashima were brought about by design faults, granted both designs by today's standards are archaic, but I'd say operator error and lethargy was the far more prevalent culprit in both events, but that's me.
