    Hello everyone! We have just finished updating Redly with a bunch of improvements that will make this site faster and easier to use. These improvements are mostly behind-the-scenes but we do have two new features that we are sure you will find useful and fun. Sometimes emojis are just not enough, that's why we have now introduced a GIF-button that will allow you to quickly and easily find and add GIFs to your status updates, forum posts, and blog entries. If you're a Club owner you can now easily re-arrange and move all the different pages and sections in your menu that you have added to your Club. And as always, if you find any bugs or something that doesn't seem to be working properly, please report it in our support forum. You can also give us suggestions on how we can improve Redly in our feedback forum.

    Today Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for US president in 2020! Bernie Sanders made the announcement on Vermont Public Radio: Sanders also said he is running to oppose Donald Trump and to enact universal health care coverage, a $15 minimum wage and reducing student debt — all policies that he championed in 2016. Shortly afterwards this campaign video was posted online: Go, Bernie, Go! 😊

    No matter how you slice it, an attempted coup is underway in Venezuela. Venezuela: Call It What It Is—a Coup WWW.THENATION.COM The power grab of the right’s Juan Guaidó is brazenly unconstitutional.

    If the BBC is politically neutral, how does it explain Andrew Neil? | Owen Jones | Opinion | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM He symbolises the rightwing domination of our media. Yet a politics presenter as aligned to the left would not be tolerated, writes Guardian columnist Owen Jones The BBC cannot call itself politically neutral if it continues to employ prominent right-wingers like Andrew Neil that actively censors criticism he doesn't like on his show.

    This study shows that people over 65-years-old with extreme right-wing opinions spread more fake news and misinformation on social media than anyone else during the US Presidential election in 2016. Remember that next time someone blames young people or millennials.

    While Donald Trump works to distract the public, his administration is working to dismantle every aspect of government that benefits the people - and ultimately destroying the prospects for human existence. Watch and listen to Noam Chomsky: Trump is a distraction, the Republican party is the most dangerous organization in human history.

    I think they've said that Windows 10 will be their last OS release but that they will continue to improve Windows 10 forever. It will be interesting to see how that goes. Either way, I think we are slowly moving away from traditional PCs (Macs are PCS too) and towards PCs that are more geared towards mobility, touch interfaces, and ease of use. But simple "toys" like Ipads and IOS and such won't do, we still need more complex operating systems that allows us to be more productive and do more precise work. I don't think Apple is close to being able to deliver on something like that, nor is any Linux version. Microsoft and Windows is still the best bet IMO. I have had Acer in the past and, in my experience, their products are the worst of them all. Acer literally makes garbage products that fall apart within three years.

    The US can become a full democracy again, no doubt about it. But I don't think we will be able to do it as long as Trump is our president. We need someone who would actually take us in that direction. He won't.

    That is one of my all time favourite movies. Really anything that was said in that film is an amazing quote. Red said the following: I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend.

    I think you should keep the two websites. Either you keep your website and blog as an archive (as it currently is) or turn ecowar.eu into a more active blog/site. You don't have to write long blog posts about the subject. Instead, I think you should keep it updated with short snippets, links, videos, and images about the site's topic. Move your domain name to a Tumblr blog - that format would be perfect for lightweight and "simple" text and media posts. And keep your excellent book as a page attached to the blog/site. Whatever you do, don't get rid of your domain name!

    Well, I'm not currently reading it because I recently finished it. And I don't think I'll be posting tons of book reviews here, because for that I guess I use Goodreads.com. So... I suspect you guys would enjoy A Foodie's Guide to Capitalism: Understanding the Political Economy of What We Eat by Eric Holt-Gimenez.

    Be sure to check out this excellent video by Aaron Bastani in which he takes a hard look on the latest impartiality-gaffe by the BBC (see the previous one from last week) on their top political TV show Question Time with Fiona Bruce. "The BBC is meant to stop fake news, not amplify it. Last week on the BBC's Question Time Diane Abbott was subject to disgraceful treatment. The host Fiona Bruce was neither accurate nor impartial. Isabel Oakeshott’s dishonesty was constantly unchallenged. Tory minister Rory Stewart couldn't believe his luck in how biased the chairing was." The BBC cannot honestly call itself politically neutral and unbiased if it continues like this!

    Vattenkonflikten mellan Israel och Palestina har sin grund i regionens geografiska, klimatologiska, hydrogeologiska och demografiska förutsättningar som tillsammans medför svår vattenbrist. Men för många palestinier uppfattas vattenbristen som huvudsakligen en politiskt framkallad sådan. Bilden ovan visar Israelisk militär som förstör en vattenlagringsanläggning som används av palestinska jordbrukare utanför byn Yatta i Västbanken, nära den israeliska bosättningen Sosia. Israel och Palestina delar tre vattenkällor emellan sig varav den ena är Jordanfloden och de andra två är främst underjordiska akvifärer. En betydande del av Israels vattentillgångar kommer från dessa delade vattenkällor som ligger under palestinska Västbanken. Enligt vissa beräkningar så står dessa vattenkällor för cirka 35% av den totala vattenmängden som används av Israel. Under 2015 så pumpade Israel upp hela 480 miljoner kubikmeter från dessa vattenkällor medan Palestinierna använde det återstående vattnet, cirka 120 miljoner kubikmeter. Liknande volymer har nyttjats av de båda parterna sedan före 1967. Men sedan dess har populationen i både Palestina och Israel ökat markant. Israel betraktar vatten som en nationell tillgång och vattentillgångarna är hårt skyddade enligt lag, sedan 1967 har Israel klassificerat all vattenresursdata som statshemligheter. Det är därmed svårt att få fram exakta siffror på landets vattenförbrukning. Men det beräknas att Israel använder omkring 90% av den totala vattenmängden som finns tillgängligt mellan Israel och Palestina, och detta trots att den stora majoriteten av dessa vattenkällor finns belägna i inom palestinskt territorium. I genomsnitt konsumerar Israeler cirka 350 liter per person och dag, vilket kan jämföras med palestinier som i genomsnitt lever på cirka 76 liter vatten. WHO rekommenderar 100 liter för grundläggande mänsklig konsumtion. Vattenbristen och vattenföroreningarna är ett akut folkhälsoproblem som resulterar i att vattenburna sjukdomar sprids. Tack vare effektiva insatser av palestinska myndigheter, WHO, och UNICEF så har den värsta dödligheten minskat under de senaste årtionden. Men olika vattenburna sjukdomar är fortfarande allvarliga hälsoproblem för främst barn i Palestina. Den positiva utvecklingen från de senaste 30 åren har börjat erodera och man ser nu en försämring när det kommer till diarré och andra vattenburna sjukdomar. Osloavtalet II behandlar bland annat vattenfrågan i Västbanken och Gazaremsan och var det första avtalet som var tydligt när det kom till palestiniernas vattenrättigheter. Avtalet upprättade exempelvis ett ramverk för förvaltningen och uppdelningen av de delade vattenresurserna och inrättandet av en gemensam vattenkommitté (JWC) samt en palestinsk vattenmyndighet (PWA). Enligt avtalet har JWC enbart jurisdiktion över vatten- och avloppsfrågor i Västbanken. I och med denna begränsning så har palestinierna ingen möjlighet att påverka beslut som berör Jordanfloden eller de vattenkällor som sträcker sig in i Israel från Palestina. Dessutom måste den israeliska civila administrationen (CA) acceptera alla vatteninfrastrukturprojekt som JWC godkänner – processen är alltså väldigt komplex, byråkratisk och långdragen. Och när som helst under processen kan en israelisk byråkrat eller civil administratör blockera eller försena ett palestinskt vattenprojekt. Även när ett projekt beviljas tillstånd från alla instanser så tar hela processen ofta ett år eller mer tills den är helt klar. Israel har vetorätt i JWC och oftast slutar processen med ett avslag och palestinierna får sällan tillstånd att borra nya brunnar, samtidigt som detta fritt beviljas för de israeliska bosättningarna. Bland de frågor som fortfarande står obesvarade i konflikten mellan palestinier och israeler så är kontrollen och användandet av dessa vattenkällor fortfarande inte lösta. Det är därmed inte så svårt att föreställa sig hur vattenfrågan är en stor bidragande orsak till den fortsatta konflikten mellan israeler och palestinier.
