#23. 26/05/2022 10:13Are you a machine?

In chapter 12 of Iain McGilchrist's book The Matter With Things, he elegantly debunks the myth that the living, organic world is anything like a machine. With many examples of totally un-machine like behaviour, McGilchrist completely dismantles the notion that organisms like ourselves, or single cells for that matter, are anything like a machine. The second half of the chapter he addresses the reasons why the machine model has been so pervasive in our perception of just about everything. I think this is an important awareness for us as some strive for a transhuman future and try to convince us this is a good thing. The transhumanist agenda1 of marrying human to machine only makes sense if the human is seen as one type of 'machine' and computer/hardware another type of machine, that can seamlessly integrate. I have no doubt it can be of use in some cases - artificial limbs come to mind - but doubt its wisdom when attempting to 'evolve' the human race as a human/machine hybrid (a...

The WHO recently announced plans for an international pandemic treaty tied to a digital passport and digital ID system. Meeting in December 2021 in a special session for only the second time since the WHO's founding in 1948, the Health Assembly of the WHO adopted a single decision titled, "The World Together." The WHO plans to finalize the treaty by 2024. It will aim to shift governing authority now reserved to sovereign states to the WHO during a pandemic by legally binding member states to the WHO's revised International Health Regulations. In January of 2022 the United States submitted proposed amendments to the 2005 International Health Regulations, which bind all 194 UN member states, which the WHO director general accepted and forwarded to other member states. In contrast to amendments to our own constitution, these amendments will not require a two-thirds vote of our Senate, but a simple majority of the member states.

Vely is a tool for writing web and command-line applications in C. Vely combines high performance and the low footprint associated with C programming with ease of use and improved safety reminiscent of languages like PHP. It's free and open source software, and licensed under GPLv3 and LGPL 3 for libraries, so you can even build commercial software with it.

Vely works on major Linux distributions and processor architectures. You can use webservers, such as Apache, Nginx, or others, and databases such as MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and SQLite.

You can use Vely for web applications, command-line programs, as middleware, database applications, services software, data integration, IoT (Internet of Things), and anywhere else. It's well suited for the cloud, works easily in a container, and, due to low resource requirements, it's also a good choice when memory and processing power are at a premium.

Install Vely

To try Vely, install the Apache webserver and MariaDB database. You can use a different webserver and database, and the setup would be similar, but in this example, I use Apache and MariaDB.

Next, install Vely. On Linux use a package manager such as dnf or apt.

Stock tickers project

This example saves the names of stock tickers and their prices so you can view them in a list.

Start by creating stock.v file, and paste this code into it:

#include "vely.h"

void stock() {
   out-header default
   @
       @
       input-param action
       input-param stock_name
       input-param stock_price
       if (!strcmp (action, "add")) {
          // Add to stock table, update if stock exists
          run-query#add_data@db = "insert into stock (stock_name,\
              stock_price) values ('%s', '%s') on duplicate key \
              update stock_price='%s'" : stock_name, stock_price, \
              stock_price
           end-query
           error#add_data to define err
           if (strcmp (err, "0")) {
               report-error "Cannot update stock price, error [%s]", err
           }
           @

              @Stock price updated!
           @

       } else if (!strcmp (action, "show")) {
         // Show stock names and values
           @
               @
                   @
                   @
               @
               run-query#show_data@db = "select stock_name, \
                    stock_price from stock" output stock_name, \
                    stock_price
                   @
                       @
                       @
                   @
               end-query
           @
Stock nameStock price

                       query-result#show_data, stock_name
                       @

                       query-result#show_data, stock_price
                       @

       } else {
           @
Unrecognized request!

       }
       @
   @
}

Build the database

For this example, create a database named dbstock, owned by user vely with the password your_password. These are arbitrary names, and in real life, you can use whatever values you want, as long as they're consistent throughout your code.

First, log in to the MariaDB database as root and execute this:

CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS dbstock;
FLUSH privileges;
CREATE USER IF NOT EXISTS vely@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'your_password';
FLUSH privileges;
GRANT ALL privileges ON dbstock.* TO vely@localhost;
FLUSH privileges;
exit;

Now log in to MariaDB again and set the current database:

$ mysql -u vely -pyour_password

Now you can create the database objects needed for the application. You need a stock table in the dbstock database for this example.

USE dbstock;
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS stock (stock_name VARCHAR(100) PRIMARY KEY, stock_price BIGINT);

Finally, create a database configuration file named db so that your application can log into the database. You must call it db because that's what the code in stock.v uses. For instance:

[...]
run-query#add_data@db = "insert into stock ..."
[...]

The database name is preceded by the @ sign, in this case, @db, so the name of the database configuration file is db. As with other values, you can name your database configuration file whatever you want, as long as your code is consistent.

Here's the configuration for the db file:

[client]
user=vely
password=your_password
database=dbstock

The above is a standard MariaDB client options file. Vely uses native database connectivity, so you can specify any options a given database allows.

Build the application

Next, you can create your Vely application. For this example, you're going to create a web app called stockapp:

$ sudo vf -i -u $(whoami) stockapp

This creates an application home under the Vely directory (/var/lib/vv) and performs the required application setup steps for you.

To build your application, use the vv command:

$ vv -q --db=mariadb:db stockapp

Here's what each option means:

  • -q builds an application
  • --db specifies the database to be used (mariadb:db, as specified in your configuration file)
  • stockapp is the application name

You can actually use any number of databases and different vendors in your application. This example is simple, though, so you only need one database. Vely has many other useful options you can use, but this is sufficient for now.

Configure web access

To access your application via a web browser or various web clients, you need to set up a webserver. It can be Apache, Nginx, or any other server that supports FastCGI proxying (most, if not all, webservers and load balancers do this). Here, I will set up Apache, but the setup is similar for other webservers.

The proxy and proxy_fcgi modules are installed and enabled by default on the Fedora install of the Apache web server, but you must enable them on Debian-based systems (like Ubuntu):

$ sudo a2enmod proxy
$ sudo a2enmod proxy_fcgi
$ sudo systemctl restart apache2

If you're not on a Debian-based system, you can enable an Apache module by adding it to the Apache configuration file or in a file in the /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/ directory, depending on your distribution's configuration.

Next, open your Apache configuration file in a text editor. For example, on a Debian-based system:

$ sudo vi /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

On a Fedora system (including Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS):

$ sudo vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Add this line to the end of the file:

ProxyPass "/stockapp" unix:///var/lib/vv/stockapp/sock/sock|fcgi://localhost/stockapp

Depending on your webserver configuration, there may be a better place to add the ProxyPass directive. For this example, though, the above is sufficient.

Save the file and restart the webserver. On Fedora-based systems:

$ sudo systemctl restart httpd

On Debian-based systems:

$ sudo systemctl restart apache2

In this case, you're connecting to your application through a socket, but you can use a TCP port instead (which comes in handy when your application resides in a container or something similar).

Run the application

Start the application server for your application:

$ vf stockapp

By default, this runs anywhere from 0 to 20 server processes for your application, depending on the load. When the user load is low, your application uses virtually no memory at all.

That was it! Navigate to http://127.0.0.1/stockapp?req=stock&action=add&stock_name=XYZ&stock_pri… in your web browser to see the application.

You've just updated the stock price for ticker "XYZ" to 440. Try different tickers and prices to build a list of stocks, which you can view with the URL http://127.0.0.1/stockapp?req=stock&action=show.

Congratulations, you've created your first Vely application, reverse proxied behind a web server.

You can also view the output without a graphical browser by using curl:

$ curl -s \
"http://127.0.0.1/stockapp?req=stock&action=add&stock_name=XYZ&stock_price=440"
$ curl -s "http://127.0.0.1/stockapp?req=stock&action=show"

Run the application from the terminal

You can run your application from the terminal, too. A terminal command is always made along with the FastCGI application server, and it's named the same as your application (in this case, stockapp). It works exactly the same as the web app. You can write some requests to your application to be fulfilled as web requests and others to run from the command-line. To do that, you provide the request as environment variables. For instance, to output the list of stocks as HTML, type:

$ export REQUEST_METHOD=GET
$ export QUERY_STRING="req=stock&action=show"
$ /var/lib/vv/bld/stockapp/stockapp

To suppress HTTP headers, use:

$ export VV_SILENT_HEADER=yes
$ /var/lib/vv/bld/stockapp/stockapp

How Vely works

Your application works by processing requests and sending back replies. A request is one of two HTTP methods: GET or POST.

A request always has a parameter req. In the example here, its value is stock. That means source code compiled from file stock.v is called automatically to handle such a request.

A source file like this can do many different things, all grouped logically under a single request. Here, you have another parameter action, which can have a value of add (to add or update a stock) or show (to show a list of stocks). You specify stock_name and stock_price parameters when adding or updating. Pretty easy stuff. Other than req, you can choose parameter names however you wish.

Looking at the code in stock.v, it's simple to follow. You use the input-param construct to get the values for your input parameters. Yes, those strange things in the C code that aren't C are Vely language constructs, and they do lots of useful stuff for you, such as run-query, which (as you might expect from the name) runs your queries. An easy one is @, which is an output construct. String handling is made simple and reliable without worrying about buffer overruns. Check out the full reference of Vely constructs to understand Vely's capabilities.

Vely converts all constructs in your code into pure C and makes a native executable that is very small and fast. Your application runs as several FastCGI server processes, which stay resident in memory while accepting and processing requests. All of these processes work in parallel.

For more info, see how Vely works and read more about Vely architecture.

Manage strings and memory

Vely has automatic garbage collection for all of its constructs. In fact, most of the time, you shouldn't need to free memory at all, so application development is even simpler. Leave that to Vely and enjoy computing free of memory leaks and far fewer memory issues than you might expect. String constructs such as write-string make it safe, fast, and easy to create complex strings just as they do simple ones.

FastCGI program manager

Even if you don't want to develop your own applications with Vely, you can use vf, Vely's FastCGI program manager, with any generic FastCGI program, not just those created with Vely.

Want to learn more about Vely?

I sometimes get asked about the project name. Vely is short for Vel(ocit)y. It's fast to program with, fast to understand code and maintain, and fast (and small!) at run time. It's even easy to containerize.

Check out the documentation at vely.dev, which features downloads and examples that go beyond the introduction this article provides.

Vely is an open source tool for writing web and command-line applications in C on major Linux distributions.

Document your source code with Doxygen on Linux Stephan Avenwedde Thu, 05/26/2022 - 03:00

When trying to familiarize yourself with someone else's project, you usually appreciate the comments left behind that help you understand the meaning of their code. In the same way, whenever you are programming, whether for yourself or for others, it is good practice to comment your own code. All programming languages offer a special syntax to mark a word, a line, or a whole section as a comment. Those areas are then ignored by the compiler or interpreter when the source code is processed. 

Comments don't take the place of documentation, but there is a way to use your comments to produce documentation easily. Meet Doxygen, an open source tool for generating HTML or LaTeX documentation based on comments in the code. Doxygen enables you to provide a comprehensive overview of the structure of your code without additional effort. While Doxygen is mainly used to document C++, you can use it for many other languages, like C, Objective-C, C#, PHP, Java, Python, and more.

To use Doxygen, you simply comment your source code in a syntax that Doxygen can read. Doxygen then walks through your source files and creates HTML or LaTeX documentation based on those special comments. The C++ example project below will illustrate how the source code is commented and how the documentation is generated from it. The example is available on GitHub, and I will also include references to different sections of the Doxygen manual and documentation.

section above, you can see that the operator declarations are grouped as Writing and Reading. These groups are defined and named in the ByteStream header file.

Grouping is done using a special syntax: You start a group with @{ and end it with }@. All members inside those marks belong to this group. In the header ByteStream.h it is implemented as follows:

/** @name Writing
* Operators for writing to the stream
* @{
*/


(...)

/** @}
* @name Reading
* Operators for reading from the stream
* @{
*/


(...)

/** @} */

You can find more information about grouping in the Doxygen documentation, under Grouping.

LLVM Support

If you are building with Clang, you can apply the flag -Wdocumentation to the build process to let Clang check your special comments. You can find more information about this feature in the LLVM Users Manual or in Dmitri Gribenko's presentation, both on the Clang website.

Where Doxygen is used

Doxygen was first released in 1997, so it has been already around for some years. Despite its age, many projects use Doxygen to create their documentation. Some examples are NASA's F Prime flight software framework, the image processing library OpenCV, and the package manager RPM. You can also find the Doxygen syntax in other areas, like in the documentation standards of the content management platform Drupal.

A caveat: One drawback of using Doxygen is that it outputs HTML documentation with the look and feel of web pages from the nineties. It is also hard to depict the architecture of meta and template programming using Doxygen. For those cases, you would probably choose Sphinx over Doxygen. Download the now.

This widely used open source tool can generate documentation from your comments.

Israeli media is claiming that he had "planned attacks on Jews and Israelis worldwide." The Sunday killing took place in Tehran when the IRGC colonel was approach by two unidentified gunmen on a motorcycle who shot him in the head. "I have agreed for our security forces to seriously follow up on this matter and I have no doubt that revenge for the pure blood of our martyr will be taken," the country's President Ibrahim Raisi said in a speech.

Denys Prokopenko, commander of the Azov battalion, was able to briefly call his wife, Kateryna, who said she had also been told that the prisoners had not been subjected to violence. It was not immediately clear if Prokopenko had been able to speak freely during the conversation. "He said he was 'OK' and asked how I was," Kateryna Prokopenko told the Guardian on Tuesday. "I've heard from other sources that the conditions are more or less satisfactory."

#94. 26/05/2022 00:54BEST OF THE WEB: Ukraine: How and why the war was manufactured

Before being elected President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower was the first Commander of NATO. In February 1951, a few months after taking office, he wrote the following, "If in 10 years all the American troops stationed in Europe for the purpose of ensuring national defense have not returned to the United States, then this project, NATO, will have failed." The troops did not return, actually, their presence in Europe did not cease to increase. Not only that, but once the Soviet Union disintegrated and contrary to the solemn and hollow promises of the main leaders of Western governments (Clinton, Bush, Obama, Helmut Kohl in Germany, Tony Blair in the United Kingdom... etc.) in the sense that "NATO would not move an inch to the East," as a matter of fact, this criminal organization transferred supplies and troops to the very borders of Russia. How come! Weren't the enemies of the West the Soviet Union and communism? No. The enemy was, and still is, Russia, an overly...

Barring the sharia-ruled province of Aceh, homosexuality is not illegal in Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim-majority country, although it is generally considered taboo. The rainbow Pride flag was flown alongside the British flag at the country's embassy in Jakarta on May 17 to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, according to an Instagram post by the embassy.

Some 62 million barrels of Russia's flagship Urals crude oil, a record amount, are sitting in vessels at sea, data from energy analytics firm Vortexa showed, as traders struggled to find buyers for the crude. Report informs, citing Reuters, that the volume of Urals crude oil on the water is triple the pre-war average, Vortexa said, even as Russian seaborne oil exports fell to 6.7 million barrels per day (bpd) so far in May, down about 15% from the 7.9 bpd in February. The number of Urals cargoes at sea with no set destination is 15% of the total, also a new high, Seigle added. Some of the oil could be in transit to undisclosed buyers, while others could be unsold cargoes. Most barrels of Russian crude oil have headed to Asia, mainly India and China, while volumes to Europe have also ticked up ahead of a ban.

Former secretary of state Henry Kissinger has said Ukraine should accept giving up part of its territory to reach a peace deal with Russia, and end the now three-month-long war immediately. Talking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, on Monday, 98-year-old Kissinger said that failing to restart negotiations with Russia and continuing to antagonize Moscow could have disastrous consequences for Europe's stability in the long term. "Negotiations need to begin in the next two months before it creates upheavals and tensions that will not be easily overcome. Ideally, the dividing line should be a return to the status quo ante. Pursuing the war beyond that point would not be about the freedom of Ukraine, but a new war against Russia itself." Kissinger, who served under the administrations of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford in the 1970s, warned against dragging on the war, and pressed for negotiations. The former secretary of state said Russia has been an essential part...

A cohort of Republicans, part of the dissenting vote on Biden's Ukraine war package, seeks oversight and specifics about the destination of U.S. money and weapons. The House of Representatives, on May 10, approved President Biden's $33 billion package for the war in Ukraine, and then, on its own initiative, added $7 billion on top of it. That brought the new war spending authorization to $40 billion, on top of the $14 billion already spent just 10 weeks into this war, which U.S. officials predict will last years, not months. The House vote in favor was 368-57. All 57 NO votes were from GOP House members. All House Democrats, including the Squad, voted YES. A similar scene occurred when the Senate, "moving quickly and with little debate," overwhelmingly approved the same war package. All eleven NO votes were from Senate Republicans. All Senate Democrats, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), voted in favor, seemingly in direct contradiction to Sanders' February 8 op-ed in The...

On Monday, during his first official visit to Japan, US President Joe Biden announced the launch of a new project called the 'Indo-Pacific Economic Framework', which the White House claims to be an economic vision for Asia in an obvious bid to try and counter China. Thirteen countries have signed up to the agreement, including India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, and all of the ASEAN members, excluding Myanmar, Cambodia, and Laos (which are ostracized for being too pro-China). But what exactly does this agreement mean? And what does it offer and consist of? That's a good question, and most people are wondering the same thing. The Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) is not a trade deal, is not an investment agreement, not a treaty, and not an institution; it is an American slogan at best, a slogan which is really just focused on indirectly attacking China, rather than actually offering any serious economic commitments, a recognition that they have long lost the...

The EU's proposed new sanctions against Russia, including an oil embargo, should not be discussed at next week's summit of the bloc's leaders, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in a letter to the President of the European Council. In the letter, dated May 23rd and obtained by Reuters, Orban said it was unlikely a solution could be found by then, and that Hungary was not in a position to agree to the proposed EU sanctions until all outstanding issues are resolved. The European Commission this month proposed new sanctions against Russia but they require the unanimous support of all 27 EU member states and Hungary has blocked them. Orban reiterated his stance that "solutions must come before sanctions. Looking at the gravity of the issues still open, it is very unlikely that a comprehensive solution could be found before the special meeting of the European Council on 30-31 May. I am convinced that discussing the sanctions package at the level of leaders in the absence of a...

Pakistan plummets into political chaos a month after Imran Khan's ouster. But this time the military cannot step in to arbitrate, as they are now a focus of public anger. A month after the ouster of former prime minister Imran Khan, Pakistan has plunged into political instability, with dire implications for national security, if left unresolved. This situation is a result of the acute failure of state institutions - primarily the military and supreme court - to manage the country's political fallout since parliament ejected Khan in April. Numerous analysts have drawn parallels with the political crisis in Sri Lanka, suggesting that Pakistan could be heading in a similar direction i.e., a debt trap leading to insolvency and loss of sovereignty. However, if Islamabad re-establishes a political consensus that can safeguard its national interest, the Sri Lankan predicament can be easily avoided. Currently, Pakistan's political disarray remains severe enough that no single state...

Denali National Park is still melting out from its snowiest winter season in 99 years of record keeping. The unusually heavy, lingering snow is affecting park wildlife. Summer operations resumed on May 20, but park public affairs officer Sharon Stiteler says conditions along the Park Road are lagging behind the calendar. "It definitely looks like winter when you're out at about mile 10 and you're looking into the tundra. I mean, it's still very snow-covered," she said. The Park Service headquarters got 176 inches of snow this winter, besting the 1970-71 record of nearly 174 inches. As of May 15, there were still 33 inches of snow on the ground at Park headquarters — by far the most on record so late in the season.

Millions of lasers shot from a helicopter flying over the Amazon basin have revealed evidence of unknown settlements built by a "lost" pre-Hispanic civilization, resolving a long-standing scientific debate about whether the region could sustain a large population, a new study finds. The findings indicate the mysterious Casarabe people — who lived in the Llanos de Mojos region of the Amazon basin between A.D. 500 and 1400 — were much more numerous than previously thought, and that they had developed an extensive civilization that was finely adapted to the unique environment they lived in, according to the study, published online Wednesday (May 25) in the journal Nature. The study researchers used airborne lidar — "light detection and ranging," in which thousands of infrared laser pulses are bounced every second off the terrain to reveal archaeological structures beneath dense vegetation — and discovered several unknown settlements within a network of roads, causeways, reservoirs and...

Smallholders are the main body of China's agricultural producers, numbering about 203 million, accounting for 98% of all kinds of agricultural production enterprises. They often invest excess resources in the production process, and the efficiency of their resource utilization is low, resulting in serious environmental impacts, such as air pollution, soil degradation, eutrophication, and resource scarcity.

The thymus is a crucial organ of the immune system. In the thymus, the well-known T cells mature: As killer cells, they recognize and destroy virus-infected or malignant cells, and as so-called helper T cells they assist the body in antibody formation. In the last decades, Thomas Boehm's research group at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg has identified the genetic switches required for T cell maturation in the thymus.

Scientists have identified processes that control the development and composition of thymic tissue throughout life.

#273. 25/05/2022 18:53Joint Statement from the European Union, the United States, and the United Kingdom on the establishment of the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group (ACA) for Ukraine by Office of the Spokesperson

Office of the Spokesperson

Begin text:

Today, the European Union, the United States, and the United Kingdom announced the creation of the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group (ACA), a mechanism aimed at ensuring efficient coordination of their respective support to accountability efforts on the ground. The ACA will reinforce current EU, US and UK efforts to further accountability for atrocity crimes in the context of Russia’s ongoing war of aggression against Ukraine. It advances commitments made by the European Union, the United States, and the United Kingdom to demonstrate international support and solidarity at this crucial historical moment for Ukraine.

The overarching mission of the ACA is to support the War Crimes Units of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine (OPG) in its investigation and prosecution of conflict-related crimes. The ACA seeks to streamline coordination and communication efforts to ensure best practices, avoid duplication of efforts, and encourage the expeditious deployment of financial resources and skilled personnel to respond to the needs of the OPG as the legally constituted authority in Ukraine responsible for dealing with the prosecution of war crimes on its own territory.

EU High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell said: “It is critical to ensure that all those responsible for the terrible atrocities committed during the unprovoked Russian military aggression in Ukraine are brought to justice. There can be no impunity for war crimes. The Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group will be providing advice and supporting the ongoing efforts of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s War Crimes Units to collect, preserve, and analyze evidence of atrocities to help the investigations and ensure justice takes its course.”

US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken said: “This initiative will directly support efforts by the Ukrainian Office of the Prosecutor General to document, preserve, and analyze evidence of war crimes and other atrocities committed by members of Russia’s forces in Ukraine, with a view toward criminal prosecutions.  The ACA is an essential element of the United States’ commitment that those responsible for such crimes will be held to account.”

UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said: We are determined to ensure those responsible for the vile atrocities committed in Ukraine are held to account. The UK has already made a clear commitment to supporting Ukraine in its investigations, including through deploying war crimes experts to the region and releasing additional funding to aid the ICC in their investigations. We are now stepping up our efforts through this landmark initiative with our partners in the US and EU. Justice will be done.

General Prosecutor of Ukraine, Iryna Venediktova said“There is ample evidence of the atrocities committed by Russia’s forces on the territory of Ukraine against civilians, including children. The creation of this support group and the advice of international experts with experience in other international criminal tribunals and national criminal law practice will help the ongoing work of our teams in investigating and prosecuting these crimes.”

Operational support

The ACA will bring together multinational experts to provide strategic advice and operational assistance to OPG specialists and other stakeholders in areas such as collection and preservation of evidence, operational analysis, investigation of conflict-related sexual violence, crime scene and forensic investigations, drafting of indictments, and co-operation with international and national accountability mechanisms. This engagement with the OPG and other justice, law enforcement and security agencies of Ukraine has been and will continue to be driven by the needs of the Ukrainian government and the parameters of its support will be developed in close consultation with the OPG.    To this end, it will closely associate its activities with the ongoing operational work taking place in cooperation with EU Member States, partner third countries and the International Criminal Court, including the Joint Investigation Team coordinated by Eurojust.

The ACA brings together a multi-national group of war crimes experts from European Union countries, the United States, the United Kingdom and other countries. Due to the current security situation in Ukraine, the experts are primarily based in south-eastern Poland but are operationally engaged in Ukraine, including by means of short-term missions and on-site interaction with the OPG staff and other international partners engaged. As the security situation permits, it is anticipated that experts and support staff will relocate entirely to Ukraine.

The ACA activity will cover coordination of two key elements:

  • Advisory Group to the OPG: Experienced senior war crimes prosecutors, investigators, military analysts, forensic specialists, and other experts based in the region on an ongoing basis provide expertise, mentoring, advice and operational support to the OPG and to the field-level Mobile Justice Teams, as well as a wider range of state and non-state actors.
  • Mobile Justice Teams: Several Mobile Justice Teams (MJTs) are being created and deployed to increase the capacity of the OPG War Crimes Unit and regional prosecutors to conduct field investigations. The MJTs will be composed of both international and Ukrainian experts and will be deployed at the request of the OPG to assist Ukraine’s investigators on the ground. They will be part of the holistic chain for documentation, investigation and prosecution of grave international crimes that is led by the OPG.

The ACA is supported by the U.S. State Department’s Office of Global Criminal Justice (GCJ) and Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL). ACA partners include the Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, Global Rights Compliance, and the International Development Law Organization (IDLO). On the EU side, coordination will be ensured by the European External Action Service (EEAS), through the EU Delegation to Ukraine, in coordination with the European Commission, the EU Project Pravo-Justice II and the EU Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM). The UK contribution will be coordinated by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and other relevant UK Government Departments.

Background

The ACA is an operational hub that coordinates assistance in response to the technical and legal needs of the Government of Ukraine to hold perpetrators of international crimes to account. It constitutes one essential component of a broader multilateral effort to support Ukraine.

#283. 25/05/2022 18:48Launch of the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group (ACA) for Ukraine by Antony J Blinken Secretary of State

Antony J. Blinken, Secretary of State

The United States, along with the European Union and the United Kingdom, has created the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group (ACA).  This joint initiative will directly support the efforts of the War Crimes Units of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine (OPG) to document, preserve, and analyze evidence of war crimes and other atrocities committed in Ukraine, with a view toward criminal prosecutions.  As we launch this initiative, the Department of State will continue to work closely with the Department of Justice and other partners to support the pursuit of justice and accountability. As the recent joint statement  issued by the Attorney General and his international counterparts makes clear, we are united across the globe in our resolve to hold perpetrators responsible.

Evidence of atrocities by members of Russia’s forces in Ukraine continues to mount.  Initially, this violence took the form of bombardments and missile and artillery strikes hitting densely-populated cities and towns, causing thousands of civilian deaths and destruction of civilian infrastructure.  Later, when journalists, human rights defenders, and Ukrainian officials gained access to areas following the retreat of Russia’s forces, we saw reports of violence of a different order — credible reports of unarmed civilians shot in the back; individuals killed execution-style with their hands bound; bodies showing signs of torture; and horrific accounts of sexual violence against women and girls.  Most recently, credible reports are emerging of Ukrainian children being forcibly transferred out of the country.

The establishment of this multilateral accountability effort, therefore, comes at a critical time. The ACA will provide strategic advice and operational assistance to the War Crimes Units of the OPG, the legally constituted authority responsible for prosecuting war crimes and other atrocities in Ukraine. Although the United States and our partners are supporting a range of international efforts to pursue accountability for atrocities, the OPG will play a crucial role in ensuring that those responsible for war crimes and other atrocities are held accountable.  The ACA is an essential element of the United States’ commitment that those responsible for such crimes will be held to account.

The ACA’s assistance to the War Crimes Units of the OPG includes expanded funding for the work of a multi-national team of international prosecutors and other war crimes experts already deployed to the region.  This interdisciplinary team is providing strategic advice and operational assistance in areas such as collection and preservation of evidence, military analysis, investigation of conflict-related sexual violence, and co-operation with international and national accountability mechanisms. In this regard, the ACA will liaise with the Department of Justice as it pursues accountability in U.S. courts.

The ACA will streamline coordination and communication efforts to ensure best practices, avoid duplication of efforts, and encourage the expeditious deployment of financial resources and skilled personnel to respond to the needs of the OPG. The ACA’s engagement with the OPG and other justice, law enforcement, and security agencies of Ukraine has been, and will continue to be, driven by the needs of the Ukrainian government, and the parameters of its support will be developed in close consultation with the OPG.

We look forward to working with Madame Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova to further the cause of justice for the people of Ukraine. At the same time, our Department of Justice and other law enforcement agencies will be vigilant in doing our part to promote accountability for the war crimes and other atrocities being committed by Russia’s forces.

Cavusoglu, who met Palestinian officials in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday, was in Jerusalem as Turkey and Israel seek to mend ties which began to fray following an Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip in 2008.

Ties fully collapsed in 2010 when Israeli forces stormed a Turkish aid ship bound for the blockaded Gaza Strip, in a botched operation that claimed the lives of 10 Turks.

The latest US decision to not extend the general license waiver that allows Russia to make sovereign debt payments is an attempt to force the sanctions-hit nation into an "artificial default," according to Kyle Shostak, the director & CEO at Navigator Principal Investors. The move will "effectively turn Russia's liabilities to the category of default as it is commonly understood and interpreted by international rating agencies," Shostak said in an interview with TASS. "This situation can be called nothing but enforcement of an artificial default, as Russia now has enough funds to service its external debt."

He added that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky "every other day," and apparently "does not let him to turn off this path." "London has been driving Kiev down the warpath with all its might, this is important, and has not allowed it to turn away, voicing new initiatives. There are constant reports that new weapons are about to be delivered," the ambassador said in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV channel. Meanwhile, London is trying to "isolate" Russian diplomats to make it more difficult for them to communicate Moscow's position, Kelin added, including in relation to the military conflict in Ukraine.

#295. 25/05/2022 18:29Ex-Indian FM explains why Quad neglected Ukraine

India "prevailed" in ensuring that a joint statement with the US, Japan, and Australia did not mention or condemn Russia over the conflict in Ukraine, former Foreign Minister Kanwal Sibal told RT. Sibal explained that the eyes of the 'Quad' should remain focused on the Indo-Pacific, and New Delhi has no quarrel with Moscow. The leaders of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue issued a joint statement on Tuesday following a summit in Tokyo, Japan. The statement largely focused on security issues in the South China Sea and Asia more broadly, and Ukraine was briefly mentioned as a "tragic conflict" and a "humanitarian crisis," which all four leaders discussed their responses to. The Quad leaders referenced "respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity," but did not condemn or even name Moscow. Sibal, a veteran diplomat who served as India's foreign minister between 2001 and 2002, told RT on Tuesday that this was not an accidental oversight.

For decades, paleontologists have debated whether dinosaurs were warm-blooded, like modern mammals and birds, or cold-blooded, like modern reptiles. Knowing whether dinosaurs were warm- or cold-blooded could give us hints about how active they were and what their everyday lives were like, but the methods to determine their warm- or cold-bloodedness—how quickly their metabolisms could turn oxygen into energy—were inconclusive. But in a new paper in Nature, scientists are unveiling a new method for studying dinosaurs' metabolic rates, using clues in their bones that indicated how much the individual animals breathed in their last hour of life.

Hundreds of protesters in war-torn Yemen marched Wednesday against the years-long blockade of a major city by Huthi rebels, as UN-brokered talks to end the siege started in Jordan.

Demonstrators in Taez, Yemen's third biggest city, chanted "Oh, you Huthi, you backstabber".

Among the crowds, which included women and children, some held up signs in English that read: "End Taez seige".

Holding talks to end the blockade was agreed as part of a two-month renewable truce that began in April, and which has significantly reduced fighting in the seven-year civil war.

The European Parliament has voted to give Europol wide powers to collect and process data on individuals, including people not suspected of any crime, in a move that significantly widens the power of the European police agency. MEPs voted on 4 May to widen the mandate of Europol to collect personal data from tech companies, including telecoms and internet suppliers and social media firms, and to collect and analyse data from countries outside the European Union (EU). The proposals also give Europol the go-ahead to develop algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI) systems capable of making automated decisions and developing predictive policing models. The Parliament's draft regulation effectively overturns an order by the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) in January 2020 that required Europol to delete swathes of personal data it had collected and processed unlawfully. MEPs voted by 480 in favour of a significant expansion of Europol's role, with 142 against and 20...

Et selon un photographe présent ce jour-là, il ne s’agissait pas d’un gilet pare-balles.

#591. 25/05/2022 15:22Pets or threats? Goldfish might be harmful to biodiversity

Invasive species are one of the leading causes of global biodiversity loss, and the pet trade is responsible for a third of all aquatic invasive species. Pet owners releasing unwanted pets into the wild is a major problem. Whilst many believe this is a humane option, new research suggests that attempting to "save" the life of a goldfish could in fact lead to catastrophic outcomes for native biodiversity.

Close friendships among males are rare in the animal kingdom, as males usually compete for rank and access to females. However, male friendships can also be beneficial for male reproduction, as friends can provide support in climbing the rank ladder or defending females from other males. Scientists from the German Primate Center (DPZ) investigated the benefits of male friendships in wild Guinea baboons in Senegal. Guinea baboons are known for strong bonds among males and a lack of a clear male rank hierarchy.

In all vertebrates, mothers transfer variable amounts of hormones into eggs and embryos, which influence development and traits of offspring in later lives. In a recent study the researchers looked at the transferred hormones in different bird species eggs, and found a hundredfold difference in the thyroid hormones, which control development and growth in birds. Migratory and precocial bird species provide the highest levels of thyroid hormones to their offspring.

Since the advent of penicillin more than 90 years ago, antibiotic drugs have saved countless lives by preventing and treating bacterial infections. However, bacteria are rapidly developing new ways to resist antibiotics, making some of modern medicine's most powerful drugs less effective against many life-threatening infections, such as gonorrhea, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridioides difficile (C. difficile), among others. Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate nearly 3 million drug-resistant infections occur each year in the United States alone.

#603. 25/05/2022 15:04The social transmission of stress in animal collectives

Stress is a widespread phenomenon that occurs when, for example, humans feel threatened or overwhelmed, have too much work or are in imminent danger. We communicate to others that we are stressed through our behavior and physiological changes. Thus, stress can also convey information and even be useful for survival in certain situations. On the other hand, the massive spread of stress, which can be transmitted from one individual to others, not infrequently leads to dangerous situations in groups, such as mass panics.
