On July 1, Senators Kirsten #Gillibrand, Senator Chuck #Grassley & Senator Ted #Cruz announced they will offer the bipartisan #Military Justice Improvement Act as an amendment to this year’s National #Defense Authorization Act. gillibrand.senate.gov/news/press/rel… #NDAA #MJIA #PassMJIA
From Senator Gillibrand's press release: "The Military #Justice Improvement Act would professionalize how the #military prosecutes serious crimes by moving the decision over whether to prosecute them to independent, trained, professional military prosecutors." #MJIA #PassMJIA
"Despite years of Congressional reforms, thousands of service members are raped & sexually assaulted every year. In many of those cases, the assailant is someone in the survivor’s own chain of command." -- #military #MST #MilitarySexualTrauma #MJIA #PassMJIA

Forced evictions & demolitions during #Covid_19 in Pakistan.
As “Eviction” contradicts the “stay at home” policy, the United Nations has called on member states & governments at all levels to stop all migrations & evictions at this time of pendamic covid-19.
@KarachiUrbanLab
The recent effects of the #COVIDー19 are causing a lot of problems around the world, especially for people who have suffered significant loss of #income. In such a difficult and critical time, ‘#home’ has become a ‘#defense’ against the #coronavirusPandemic.
States around the world are ordering people to stay “at home” to prevent the spread of Covid-19. But at the same time, many states are at risk of being evicted, while at least 150 million people worldwide are homeless and living on temporary shelters or sidewalks.

Did #Torosaurus use its horns for #defense?

Um, #YES, and here is why.
Triceratops is my favorite dinosaur of all time. The no-nonsense, T-Rex-killing, three-horned wonder was my hero as a little kid. My like for triceratops is one of the reasons I was interested in the ceratopsian dinosaurs, of which triceratops is one. From the formidable
Styracosaurus to Protoceratops, whose fossils inspired the myth of the Griffin, these dinosaurs are among the most interesting to study, triceratops being the most interesting. Indeed, out of all of the ceratopsians, only a few could rival triceratops in size.

Did #Triceratops use its #horns for #defense???

Um, #YES, and here is why:
Like most people, I was fascinated with dinosaurs as a kid. Heck, I still am, having 6 books and about 20 or so documentaries on them at home. I have a fascination with these scaled and feathered giants of old, those titans of horn and fang that dominated the earth before God
silenced their roars with a meteor 65 million years ago. Such realities are the stuff from which folklore, mythology and fantasy can derive, a true tale that can spawn the tall tales of tomorrow.

And such tall tales are not the purview of fiction novels.

THREAD: As expected, it is decrees season in #Oman. Sultan #Haitham just announced 10 more decrees today. Most important of them is the promotion of #Shihab bin Tariq to deputy prime minister for #defense affairs. What are the implications of this decision?
2. Shihab bin Tariq (b. 1955) is the sultan's full, younger brother (by a year). Shihab and Haitham were part of the candidates list for sultan alongside their half brother, #Asaad. Shihab was #Qaboos's advisor (2004-20) and head of the research council among other duties.
3. Between 1990-04, Shihab was Commander of the Royal Navy of Oman. Shihab joins the government alongside his brothers, the sultan and Asaad. Both Asaad and Shihab are equally ranked at deputy prime minister. Yet are they really equal?

As the #idiotic #impeachment gets set to start tomorrow, media outlets took the time to introduce us to the #castofcharacters added to @realdonaldtrump's #defense.
I worked with #Starr on two #SCOTUS cases in the early 1990s when he was #SolicitorGeneral. Not much I can offer about him.
But I worked with @JaySekulow from 1988 through 2012. I wrote briefs and other legal documents bearing his name. I assisted him in preparing for his #SCOTUS arguments. Early on, I actually wrote his press releases from 1989 to 1992.

#BREAKING

#Lithuania #Vilnius

Last week #Lithuanian #parliament adopted the state #budget for 2020. The main #financial document of the #state was approved by the majority of voters.
It is sad to see how #Lithuania is #suffering without #money. Absolute #chaos – this is how they say in #Lithuania about the new budget.
So, state budget revenues are planned in the amount of 11.559 billion euros, expenses – 12.705 billion euros.
The budget deficit will amount 2.9% of the planned gross domestic product. In other words, the #Lithuanian #draft hardly met the requirements of #fiscal #discipline. The #budget #deficit for #EU member states should not exceed 3% of GDP.

A lot of people are wondering why @honey ($100M+ revenue) was worth $4b to PayPal ($15b+ revenue). Here's my hypothesis:
1/5. HONEY has ~15m 'users' and is making 100M+ in revenue, aka $6.67 per user per year. PayPal has 286M users. This could be a 1.9B line of business with the current PayPal user base which is a great #opportunity.
2/5. PAYMENT PROCESSORS (aka PayPal) need to offer value add services to consumers so they can retain their primary line of business, processing. Capital one purchased @Wikibuy, Rakuten purchased @ebates, etc. This trend up the conversion funnel will continue as #defense.

#kzoo2019 well @WestPoint_USMA were so anxious to talk, they just started on their own at 1328 sharp! Prof Rogers explains his cadets' "mission control center" or laboratory for #Military #History, working 8+ hrs/day on #medieval chronicles' paleography to #data mine 100yrs' war
Specifically looking for artillery information in skirmishes and sieges, to find what on the "laundry list" of sieges leads to #failure vs #success according to the #Database the cadets @WestPoint_USMA built collaboratively for the late #medieval & early #Renaissance. #kzoo2019
A small sample of the +90,000 #data entries - first up is Cadet Liam Kane with his findings on waging war by sieges vs by battles... taking #medieval #Military #History from generalizations to specifically-defined quantities... 47 battles to 134 sieges! #kzoo2019

Although I suggest you all download our new #MSCreport (-> securityconference.de/en/publication…) and read it - let me walk you through some of its main arguments and illustrations. Some of you might remember Gramsci's famous description of the inter-war "interregnum": 1/n
"The crisis consists," Gramsci wrote, "precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this #interregnum a great variety of morbid symptons appear." Well, that seems like an apt description of today's world. 2/n
The post-Cold war period - and the optimism associated with it - has come to an end. Many of the certainties, widely shared and taken for granted in Europe since the end of the Cold, are eroding. As German Foreign Minister, @HeikoMaas, put it in June: 3/n

(1) The Chinese spy chips found in hardware of Apple and Amazon should have been expected. There's a long history of cases like this. #cybersecurity #defense #security
(2) The Senate Armed Services Committee warned of this threat in May 2012, and found over 1 million counterfeit parts is US military systems — largely from China. theepochtimes.com/fake-electroni…
(3) It reported: “The investigation uncovered dozens of examples ... including on thermal weapons sights delivered to the Army, on mission computers for the Missile Defense Agency’s Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile, and on a large number of military airplanes.”
