Who benefits from the world conflict?

April 2nd

The video addresses vital issues of international journalism: why are news on examples of kindness, humaneness, mutual assistance and friendship between nations, positive changes in different countries and regions of the world being shamefully ignored? Are international laws practically implemented by the global community? And who prevents us from living in peace with each other and at peace with ourselves?

Who benefits from the world conflict? Or ALLATRA IPM refers to dignity, freedom and human rights.

Important! Outrageus fact!

 

Attack of killer journalists on the Man of the World.

An outrageous incident occurred recently in Ukraine. The world’s largest international public organization “ALLATRA” (whose members live in more than 180 countries around the world) was slandered and suffered a hard attack of corrupt killer journalists, who discredit the honor of the journalistic world community, degrade human dignity, and who are ready for 30 pieces of silver to sell their own god. Moreover, these are the people without honor and conscience, dishonoring to the whole world the title “journalist”, subjected Igor Danilov, whom people in many countries, call a man of peace, to a real deadly danger. Many people call Igor Danilov a man of peace, Mahatma – Great Soul, as Mahatma Gandhi in India was called in his time. For millions of people around the world, he is an example of honor and conscience, the hope for a brighter, more equitable future, the mastermind of peaceful global community initiatives and changes in the global society.

International People’s Movement “ALLATRA” – a unique national movement, in which the people themselves in their spare time successfully implement a completely new format of communication, association and interaction of people around the world on the principles of good and justice. Global movement “ALLATRA” is based on respect for the cultural diversity of the peoples of the world, humanistic, democratic ideals and values, and is engaged in social, cultural and moral activities worldwide.

This vile hounding by the killer journalists began after the public speech of Igor Danilov: As a Christian, he openly defended the true Islam and unity of all people on the planet. Such actions of killers who call themselves “journalists” disgrace this important and necessary occupation for humanity. After all, when carrying out his activities, a decent journalist is obliged to respect the legitimate rights, interests, honor and dignity of citizens and organizations, to verify the accuracy of the information reported to it, and, above all, be a human.

Disclosure of this fact has caused a wide public resonance in the society and contributed to the appearance of this letter. It is intended to consolidate all good people around the world, including the conscientious journalists, for whom the concept of honor, conscience and humanity are not empty words. It is intended to unite those who contribute to the spread of true information in the world on the principles of justice and spiritual and moral values.

As long as there is evil in the world, injustice and the degradation of the human spirit, the world community will always rely on such primary sources of peace and kindness, like Mahatma Gandhi and Igor Danilov, to maintain its dignity. “We are all human and we all have a place of residence – the Earth, one nationality – humanity, one value – life, through which we can adequately realize ourselves and the meaning of its existence in the highest spiritual and moral aspect” (from the Report of the International Public Movement “ALLATRA” “On the problems and consequences of global climate change on Earth. The effective way to address these problems”).

Tarkovsky Films Now Free Online

February 5th

tarkovsky-e1327177995907 Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) firmly positioned himself as the finest Soviet director of the post-War period. But his influence extended well beyond the Soviet Union. The Cahiers du cinéma consistently ranked his films on their top ten annual lists. Ingmar Bergman went so far as to say, “Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.” And Akira Kurosawa acknowledged his influence too, adding, “I love all of Tarkovsky’s films. I love his personality and all his works. Every cut from his films is a marvelous image in itself.” Shot between 1962 and 1986, Tarkovsky’s seven feature films often grapple with metaphysical and spiritual themes, using a distinctive cinematic style. Long takes, slow pacing and metaphorical imagery – they all figure into the archetypical Tarkovsky film.

You can now watch Tarkovsky’s films online – for free. Each film is listed in our collection, 725 Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, etc.. But here you can access the films in the order in which they were made. Most all of the films below were placed on a verified Youtube channel by Mosfilm, the largest and oldest film studio in Russia.

The two most dangerous numbers in the universe are threatening the end of physics

January 17th

5488158 ‘For the first time in the history of science, we could be facing questions that we cannot answer’

A deeply disturbing and controversial line of thinking has emerged within the physics community.

It’s the idea that we are reaching the absolute limit of what we can understand about the world around us through science.

“The next few years may tell us whether we’ll be able to continue to increase our understanding of nature or whether maybe, for the first time in the history of science, we could be facing questions that we cannot answer,” Harry Cliff, a particle physicist at the European Organization for Nuclear Research — better known as CERN — said during a recent TED talk in Geneva, Switzerland.

Equally frightening is the reason for this approaching limit, which Cliff says is because “the laws of physics forbid it.”

At the core of Cliff’s argument are what he calls the two most dangerous numbers in the universe. These numbers are responsible for all the matter, structure, and life that we witness across the cosmos.

And if these two numbers were even slightly different, says Cliff, the universe would be an empty, lifeless place.

Dangerous No. 1: The strength of the Higgs field

The first dangerous number on Cliff’s list is a value that represents the strength of what physicists call the Higgs field, an invisible energy field not entirely unlike other magnetic fields that permeates the cosmos.

As particles swim through the Higgs field, they gain mass to eventually become the protons, neutrons, and electrons comprising all of the atoms that make up you, me, and everything we see around us.

Without it, we wouldn’t be here.

We know with near certainty that the Higgs field exists because of a groundbreaking discovery in 2012, when CERN physicists detected a new elementary particle called the Higgs boson. According to theory, you can’t have a Higgs boson without a Higgs field.

Mass hysteria: The Large Hadron Collider in Cern, Geneva, where scientists continue to search for the Higgs boson
But there’s something mysterious about the Higgs field that continues to perturb physicists like Cliff.

According to Einstein’s theory of general relativity and the theory of quantum mechanics — the two theories in physics that drive our understanding of the cosmos on incredibly large and extremely small scales — the Higgs field should be performing one of two tasks, says Cliff.

Either it should be turned off, meaning it would have a strength value of zero and wouldn’t be working to give particles mass, or it should be turned on, and, as the theory goes, this “on value” is “absolutely enormous,” Cliff says. But neither of those two scenarios are what physicists observe.

The Higgs boson
“In reality, the Higgs field is just slightly on,” says Cliff. “It’s not zero, but it’s ten-thousand-trillion times weaker than it’s fully on value — a bit like a light switch that got stuck just before the ‘off’ position. And this value is crucial. If it were a tiny bit different, then there would be no physical structure in the universe.”

Why the strength of the Higgs field is so ridiculously weak defies understanding. Physicists hope to find an answer to this question by detecting brand-new particles at the newly upgraded particle accelerator at CERN. So far, though, they’re still hunting.

Dangerous No. 2: The strength of dark energy

Dark matter
Cliff’s second dangerous number doubles as what physicists have called “the worst theoretical prediction in the history of physics.”

This perilous number deals in the depths of deep space and a mind-meltingly complex phenomenon called dark energy.

Dark energy, a repulsive force that’s responsible for the accelerating expansion of our universe, was first measured in 1998.

Still, “we don’t know what dark energy is,” Cliff admits. “But the best idea is that it’s the energy of empty space itself — the energy of the vacuum.”

If this is true, you should be able to sum up all the energy of empty space to get a value representing the strength of dark energy. And although theoretical physicists have done so, there’s one gigantic problem with their answer:

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN which may have discovered the Higgs Boson particle in December
“Dark energy should be 10120 times stronger than the value we observe from astronomy,” Cliff said. “This is a number so mind-boggling huge that it’s impossible to get your head around … this number is bigger than any number in astronomy — it’s a thousand-trillion-trillion-trillion times bigger than the number of atoms in the universe. That’s a pretty bad prediction.”

On the bright side, we’re lucky that dark energy is smaller than theorists predict. If it followed our theoretical models, then the repulsive force of dark energy would be so huge that it would literally rip our universe apart. The fundamental forces that bind atoms together would be powerless against it and nothing could ever form — galaxies, stars, planets, and life as we know it would not exist.

On the other hand, it’s extremely frustrating that we can’t use our current theories of the universe to develop a better measurement of dark energy that agrees with existing observations. Even better than improving our theories would be to find a way that we can understand why the strength of dark energy and the Higgs field is what it is.

Crime-Fighting Robots Go On Patrol In Silicon Valley

January 8th

knightscope_k5_robot_111814 MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) – A new kind of security guard is on patrol in Silicon Valley: crime-fighting robots that look like they’re straight out of a sci-fi movie.

At first glance, the K5 security robot looks like a cartoonish Star Wars character.

“The vast majority of people see it and go, ‘Oh my God, that’s so cute.’ We’ve had people go up and hug it, and embrace it for whatever reason,” said Stacy Stephens, co-founder of Knightscope, headquartered in Mountain View.

They are unarmed, but they are imposing: about 5 feet tall and 300 pounds, which very likely will make someone think twice before committing a crime in their presence.

“The first thing that’s going to happen is the burglar is going to spot the robot. And unfortunately, criminals are inherently lazy. They’re not looking for something that’s going to be confrontational, they’re looking for something that’s going to be an easy target,” said Stacy Stephens, co-founder of Knightscope. “They see the robot and maybe they move down to the next place down the street.”

The security robots are autonomous, meaning they operate on their own. They don’t chase a bad guy down or make arrests.

They are designed to avoid confrontations. When someone steps right in front of one, the robot will stop. Then it will redirect its path around the person. All the while, sending video inside to a control center where a human is monitoring.

If a would-be burglar persists, Stephens said, “Then, the robot is looking at the video, listening for glass breakage, any loud sound that breaking in would cause. We’ll get the license plate, picture of the vehicle, geotag location, and time.”

The robots patrol using a similar technology as the self-driving Google car.

“It has a LIDAR (light image detection and ranging) that’s doing a 3D map,” Stephens said. “It will geofence itself and give itself a perimeter within which it will operate. And it moves around within that perimeter freely and it chooses its own path.”

The company said the robots will be deployed in outdoor settings, such as corporate campuses, college campuses and open air malls.

If someone decides to attack the robot, it could get uncomfortable. When first confronted, they let out a loud chirp and notify the control center. The chirps will get louder and louder as the threat persists.

“A very, very loud alarm,” said Stephens. “Think of a car alarm but much more intense.”

The security robots are now patrolling in the Bay Area.

The Knightscope K5s are in effect at an undisclosed location in the Silicon Valley.

“Unfortunately, I cannot share who it is,” Stephens said. “Soon you will see them everywhere.”

The makers of the robot said they have a long waiting list of about four dozen companies waiting for a K5. They expect to put many more of these robots in place sometime next year.
