“Down with America... America is the mother of terror,”

トランプがまた世界の米国に対する信用を損なう決定をしました。戦争以外でこのような米国の地位低下を招く動きを続けるのは、管理人は悪いことだとは思いません。世界が目を覚ますチャンスです。

US troops may become targets after US Jerusalem decision - Iraqi paramilitary group
The US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital may become a “legitimate reason” to attack American troops in Iraq, Shia paramilitary group Harakat Hezbollah al Nujaba said.
“Trump's stupid decision... will be the big spark for removing this entity [Israel] from the body of the Islamic nation, and a legitimate reason to target American forces,” said Akram al-Kaabi, the Iraqi organization’s leader, as cited by Reuters.
The US, which is leading a large-scale operation against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in Iraq, has about 5,200 troops in the country, according to the latest statement from the US Defense Department.
Nujaba, mostly made up of Iraqis, has about 10,000 fighters, according to Reuters data. Being a part of the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), the group is considered to be one of the most important militias in Iraq.
In November, Ted Poe from the US House of Representatives proposed imposing “terrorism-related sanctions” on Nujaba. The text of the document says Nujaba is “an affiliated faction” of the US-designated foreign terrorist organization Kata’ib Hezbollah, which also fights with the PMF.
Nujaba’s leader Akram al-Kaabi was earlier designated by the Department of the Treasury “for threatening the peace and stability of Iraq.” The bill claims Kaabi took part in “multiple mortar and rocket attacks” on the Green Zone in Baghdad in 2008.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump officially announced his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, where he plans to relocate the US Embassy. The president admitted the move will cause dissent, but says it could help resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.
A number of world powers, including Germany, Turkey, and Russia, expressed grave concern over the Trump administration’s decision.
On Thursday, the Iraqi government demanded the US reverse its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “We caution against the dangerous repercussions of this decision on the stability of the region and the world,” a government statement reads. “The US administration has to backtrack on this decision to stop any dangerous escalation that would fuel extremism and create conditions favorable to terrorism.”

Trump triggers Palestinian fury & anti-US protests in Turkey, Jordan

Anti-US protests erupted almost immediately after Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – with greater demonstrations expected across the Muslim world, united in their support of the Palestinian cause.

Palestinians were first to take to the streets following Trump’s Jerusalem decision – a potentially fatal blow to their future statehood ambitions – as their leaders called for three days of rage against the controversial move.

Hundreds of enraged youths burned tires and American flags in spontaneous protests on Wednesday across the Gaza Strip.

In the evening, protesters waving Palestinian flags heard Hamas leader, Ismail Radwan, declare that Trump’s decision will “open the gates of hell.” Chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel,” as well as “down with Trump,” they condemned Washington’s new policy.

This decision will have no effect on the Palestinian people but will escalate the Intifada in Jerusalem, and I expect too much of an escalation,” one of the Palestinian protesters told Ruptly.

Mass demonstrations also broke out in the West Bank, where residents of Qalqilya burned images of Trump.

Meanwhile in Turkey, where President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to cut diplomatic ties with Israel, thousands of protesters held rallies across the nation.

Several hundred activists gathered outside the US Consulate in Istanbul shouting anti-Trump slogans as they hurled objects at the American diplomatic mission. Led by the Anatolian Youth Association (AGD), the crowd displayed posters and banners supporting the Palestinian cause.

Anti-American protests also took place at the Fatih Mosque in Istanbul. The rally organized by Turkish Youth Foundation (TUGVA) called on Muslims worldwide to unite against the American decision, which they say signals the death knell for the Middle East peace process.

Protesters also flocked to the US Embassy in Ankara, where they stated that the Palestinian cause is a basic issue for all Muslims. Similar protests took place in Konya, Bursa, Antalya, Mugla, Manisa, Adana, Bartin, Karabuk, Samsun, Yozgat, Malatya, Gaziantep, Kahramanmaras, Sanliurfa, Sirnak and Diyarbakir provinces, Anadolu news agency reports.

“Down with America... America is the mother of terror,” shouted protesters who gathered Wednesday in the Jordanian capital, Amman to protest against the US. Jordan, which has a substantial Palestinian refugee population, condemned the move with solidarity marches taking place at the Palestinian camps of Al-Wahdat, Baqaa and Hitin, as well as in the city of Maan in southern Jordan.

毎日電気工作 無線LAN使えず ステックパソコンのUSB電源不足?

12/7は、GM-10の24時間連続稼働のための仕組みを作ります。

いろいろ器械のスペックを調べ、価格を調べて安くかつ確実に稼働させる方法として次の仕組みを考えました。

最大の問題は、回転部分のない軽いパソコンを入手することでしたが、市販品の最安値のステックパソコンを入手しました。約1万円。

小さくてもWindows10が入っています。明日はまた初期設定とバックアップディスク作成です。そしてGM-10のソフトをインストールします。



LANケーブルがつなげられるものが欲しかったのですが、見当たりませんでしたので断念。外部との情報のやりとりはWifiです。家庭内無線LANがあればそれを使えます。管理人の家では、ルーターに無線の親機の機能があるはずですが、ルーターも古くなっていて使えるかどうか。

使えなければLANケーブルの先っちょに小型の親機をつなぐことにしました。1500円ほど。この方式が使えるならば、測定器とパソコンをセットで貸し出すことが可能になります。

USB給電アダプターは、デジカメなどに付属しているものが使えるはずです。費用支出なし。

GM-10はパソコンのUSBから電源を取りますので、上の例ではスティックパソコンから電気をもらいます。稼働に必要な電気が得られるか。ダメならセルフパワー用のUSBハブなどを手当てしなければなりません。

スティックパソコンへのソフトインストールは、DVD機器がありませんからUSBメモリーにコピーしたものでやります。ただ、キーボードとマウスの2か所しかUSBに差せないので、工夫が必要です。この点はマイクロSDカードにコピーしておくことで解決しました。

上の仕組みがセットで4万5千円くらいでしょう。これだけ費用が掛かっては、個人が善意で次々に設置してくれると期待するのは無理でしょう。

特に新潟から北の日本海側は個人の設置した測定ポイントがほとんどないのです。朝鮮半島に核爆弾が撃ち込まれても、おそらく日本での影響のほどはわからないのではないかと思います。公設のMPの表示が消えるはずですから。

SOEKSやTERRAで測った結果を寄せてもらうのが一番確実かもしれませんが、夜も寝ずの番をしてくれとも頼めませんしね。

今日は、まず、USBメモリーとマイクロSDカードを購入。マイクロSDカードをスティックパソコンに挿そうとして落としてしまいました。古い部品箱の中に落ちたようなのですが、アダプターから外して状態でとても小さいので見つかりません。大変往生しました。

次いで、スティックパソコンの延長コードをフルに活用してモニターなどにつなぎます。USB二つにキーボードとマウス。電源スイッチがどれかわからなくてこれまた手間取りました。LEDライトがスイッチを兼ねていました。

Windowsが起動し、設定を進めますが、Microsoftへの登録メールアドレスは入力せずに済みました。独自のユーザー名と暗証番号。

それほど手間取りませんでしたが、やはり自宅の無線LANは死んでいました。近所の電波が入ってきています。

ネットにつながずに作業を進めます。マイクロSDからGM-10のソフトをインストール。これは成功。ですがGM-10をつなぐとほとんど信号がありません。常に1cpm。でもグラフはできましたのでアプリは正常に動いています。スティックパソコンの電源ユニットは小さく、バスパワーが不足している可能性があります。

ネット接続とGM-10の信号が弱いことはそのままにして先に進みます。Cドライブのイメージコピーですが、この画面を探すのにまた一苦労。Win7、10、最新の10とみな違います。

画面を呼び出してUSBメモリーにイメージファイルを書き込もうとしますが、拒否されました。ファイル形式をFAT13からNTFSに変更してもダメでした。SDカードに記録できないか試したらできました。GM-10のアプリのコピーを消去してNTFSにファイル形式を変更しています。

Cドライブ修復デスクは、DVDドライブがないと作成できないと表示されました。USBメモリーに書いてCDにコピーしようと思いましたができませんでした。

今日の作業はここまで。

今日の工作で、重要なことを発見。このセットを貸し出した場合にソフトを立ち上げるためには、マウスとモニターが必要だということです。最近のテレビはHDMI端子を備えているようですから、テレビにつなぎ、マウスを用意すれば起動はできます。ですが、どこか別の場所に移動することはできません。内蔵電源がないので、電気のコンセントから電源ユニットを引き抜いたとたんにスティックパソコンは動作が止まってしまいます。

まあ、目的は管理人の自宅での24時間稼働ですから、貸し出しを断念すればいいのですが。

ここまで書いてふと、昔、スタートアップと言う機能があったことに気づきました。調べると今も可能なんですね。それと自動ログインを組み合わせれば、電源オンでGM-10が稼働ということもできそうです。

ということで、上の図の無線LAN親機とGM-10への電源供給増強策が必要になりました。

セットで貸し出しの可能性も出てきました。引き続き検討です。電気工作は、とにかく疲れますので、ゆっくりと。

London’s air pollution cancels out benefits of exercise, study says
If you like jogging around central London, you might want to reconsider. New research shows pollution in some parts of the capital is so bad it cancels out the benefits of doing exercise.

Scientists from Imperial College London measured the health boosts that people aged over 60 received from brisk walks in different parts of London. They found cardiovascular benefits of exercise along Oxford Street are completely negated by exposure to air pollution for over 60s.

In comparison, when they walked in Hyde Park “all participants, irrespective of their disease status… [had] an increase in lung function,” researchers wrote in the Lancet medical journal. Their pulse wave velocity – a measure of stiffened arteries – also fell, and the benefits lasted a full day.

The study added: “These beneficial responses were attenuated after walking on Oxford Street.”

The researchers found levels of pollution – including fine particulate matter, black carbon and nitrogen dioxide – were significantly higher on Oxford Street compared to Hyde Park.

“Our findings suggest that healthy people, as well as those with chronic cardiorespiratory disorders, should minimize walking on streets with high levels of pollution because this curtails or even reverses the cardiorespiratory benefits of exercise,” the researchers wrote. “Instead, walking exercise should be enjoyed in urban green space areas away from high density traffic,” the authors advised.

“Exercise is crucial in reducing the risk of a heart attack or stroke, but it seems dangerous levels of air pollution could be erasing these benefits in older adults. When exercising it’s best to avoid highly-polluted areas, swapping them for green spaces or even back streets where pollution is lower. This will ensure you can experience the full benefits of exercise,” said chief executive of the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Simon Gillespie, whose organization funded the study.

“However, telling joggers to avoid polluted streets is not a solution to the problem. The Government must put forward bold measures to make all areas safer for our hearts and clean up the UK’s toxic air,” he added according to the Huffington Post.

Professor Fan Chung, who led the research, said, “these findings are important as for many people, such as the elderly or those with chronic disease, very often the only exercise they can do is to walk. Our research suggests that we might advise older adults to walk in green spaces, away from built-up areas and pollution from traffic.”

‘Not if, but when’: N. Korea claims US warmongering makes potential nuclear war inevitable

North Korea views the endless military drills on its borders and repeated “bellicose remarks” by top US officials as means to “provoke” a nuclear war in the region, in which the US itself will be “burnt to death by the fire.”

“The large-scale nuclear war exercises conducted by the US in succession are creating touch-and-go situation on the Korean peninsula and series of violent war remarks coming from the US high-level politicians amid such circumstances have made an outbreak of war on the Korean peninsula an established fact. The remaining question now is: when will the war break out,” a spokesperson for North Korea’s foreign ministry said Wednesday in commentary provided by state news agency KCNA.

The US and its regional allies are in the midst of a massive and unprecedented five-day joint air force Vigilant Ace exercise which kicked off Monday. In the latest provocative show of force, the US Air Force dispatched B-1B aircraft, F-22 Raptor fighter jets, as well as several F-35 stealth jets and F-16 fighter planes over the Korean peninsula Wednesday. While the drills are allegedly ‘defensive’ in nature, top American and South Korean pilots are polishing their skills to carry out attacks on North Korean nuclear and missile installations in different war scenarios. A total of 12,000 personnel and over 230 military aircraft are engaged in the drills that will run until December 8.

The ongoing military maneuvers are accompanied by aggressive warlike rhetoric from Washington. Over the weekend, White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster warned that the possibility of war with Pyongyang is “increasing every day.” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), on Sunday, called for the evacuation of family members of US military stationed in the region. CIA chief, Mike Pompeo, on Saturday, said US intelligence agencies believe that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un does not have a clue how weak his position is.

“Those around him are not feeding him the truth about the place that he finds himself – how precarious his position is in the world today. It’s probably not easy to tell Kim Jong-un bad news,” he said in Simi Valley, California.

Pyongyang seems to be taking such warnings literally and is now preparing for war which the country is anxious can break out any moment.

“These confrontational warmongering remarks cannot be interpreted in any other way but as a warning to us to be prepared for a war on the Korean peninsula,” the spokesman said. “The careless remarks of war by the inner circle of Trump and the reckless military moves by the US substantiate that the current US administration has made a decision to provoke a war on the Korean peninsula and is taking a step-by-step approach to get there.”

Making clear that Pyongyang does not want a war, the spokesman said N. Korea “shall not hide from it.”

“Should the US miscalculate our patience and light the fuse for a nuclear war, we will surely make the US dearly pay the consequences with our mighty nuclear force which we have consistently strengthened,” the foreign ministry said. “If the US does not want to be burnt to death by the fire it ignites, it would better behave with prudence and caution.”

Pyongyang has repeatedly criticized the joint drills between the US and South Korea. Last month, the North's ambassador to the UN ruled out negotiations with Washington, citing America’s “hostile policy” against his country, as well as the continuing drills between the Americans and South Koreans. Russia and China have long called for the US and North Korea to accept their proposed "double freeze" plan which would see Pyongyang suspend its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in exchange for a pause in joint US-South Korea drills. However, that proposal has firmly been rejected by the US.

犬のがん死多発は一つのバロメーターです

※  田中優子(世田谷区議会議員)‏ @setagaya_tanaka氏の2017/12/7のツイート
「赤松公園前の水路の放射線量が高いらしく、散歩している犬が次々癌になっている」という話が区民からあり、環境保全課に調べてもらいました。その結果「公園内と線路脇の水路周辺の放射線量を測定したところ、安全性の目安0.23μシーベルトより低い値で、問題となるものではない」ということでした。

・・・引用終わり・・・



空間放射線量ががんの発生に影響するのは確かなことです。

ですが、この地域は黄色い粉も降下しているはず。クンクン嗅ぎまわればどうなるでしょう。

人間は犬と違って地上20、30cmではなく100cmの空気を嗅いでいるから危険がないということはありません。時間の問題です。

それに犬のエサは放射性物質の汚染が強いかもしれませんが、これも程度問題で時間が経てば同じ結果になるでしょう。
