The current situation (war) with Iran

What will happen in the next few days or months? This is the question that everyone is asking, especially after the reaction of the Asian markets following the American raid.

Because a possible war could destabilize world markets (and stock exchanges) by generating economic crises. The price of gold and oil have already gone up. And gold has reached its listing record since 2013.

Trump gave his word that as long as he is president of the United States, Iran will never have a nuclear weapon. This is in fact the reason for the current conflict.
General Soleimani killed by the drone was planning nuclear weapons as well as possible conflicts with other countries.

The united states are supported by many countries. Israel has said it will support Trump’s action as he considers Soleimani’s work bankrupt, having killed hundreds of innocents.

Instead, France has declared that it will not withdraw troops drom Iraq, where they currently reside, and where they explicitly support the United States.

It is always difficult to judge the action of the United States, which are often the judgments of the diplomatic balances of the world, but also and above all of peace in the world. Many believe that this conflict was triggered to overshadow the judicial problems of President Trump, who in recent weeks has suffered numerous accusations and impeachment for having illegally influenced Ukraine in the voting.

Others believe that the conflict was triggered also by economic interests, mainly due to that of oil. The truth is that the United States is always responsible for the balance of the world, but often by abusing its power, it chooses the timing and methods most suited to them.

There are many pretexts to start a war. Most of the time it is a reason to get hold of oil. Other times instead for interests of other raw materials. But it can also happen that the reasons are more (serious) as for example those of nuclear weapons. Iran has been repeatedly warned of nuclear weapons, the construction of which has often been kept in the dark about public opinion.

A few days ago the US killed the Iranian general Soleimani who raised fears of a new conflict that could involve many world countries. any suspected that the drone that killed the general left from the US military base in Sicily, but the Italian defense ministry denied today.

In the modern era, the most technological countries have unimaginable weapons for countries of “modest” size. In the future, nuclear wars are likely to be fought from an IT point of view, attacking the vital servers of the systems and cities to be affected.

The Black Friday of the President TRUMP

What do you think President Trump does on black Friday? He will be almost indifferent to the people who crowd in to buy gifts and things on offer.

Donald Trump’s wealth is almost unimaginable. In recent days, on the allegations that they claimed falsifications in tax returns, he stated that he is richer than people may believe, after criticizing the New York prosecutor’s attempt to acquire “all the financial transactions I have done” .
Donald Trump announced that he will make the tax return known before the election. Like any other person, he will make Christmas presents, but surely he will not rush the day of black friday to shop, or at least not to do them all.

The president of the united states will have so many people to give gifts to, but surely an entrepreneurial man like himself often lives in a solitude of the successful man.

In fact, many people have claimed that in the years when TRUMP climbed the success it was very cold: “How much do you have to be an asshole to be a successful person?”

Thanksgiving Day

thanks

The day of thanksgiving began, as every year, with the parade in Manhattan with balloons of various parsonages, including snoopy in an astronaut version.

High winds have been blowing through New York City, and the balloons generally aren’t supposed to be flown when sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city regulations.
Sustained wind speed in New York is expected to be around 20 mph, and gusts could reach around 40 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

But this year the bad weather seems to ruin Thanksgiving weekend.

In fact, the deep oceanic depression arriving on the western United States will move right from next Thursday on the central US areas, shifting to the north-eastern areas by Monday, ruining the long weekend practically on almost all the US territory.

Day off for Wall Street, which today will be closed for the national Thanksgiving holiday. Trading will resume tomorrow with a reduced timetable. The New York Stock Exchange, Friday, November 29, 2019, will end the session at 1 pm local time (6 pm in England) instead of at the usual time of 4 pm (9 pm in England).

 

Accident for Kemba Walker: concussion

kemba
The Boston Celtics star suffered a terrible blow during the challenge with the Denver Nuggets, going head-to-head with teammate Semi Ojeleye.

Walker immediately collapsed on the ground and stayed there for several minutes, being surrounded by comrades and opponents as soon as the game stopped. The medical staff immobilized him and then transported him off the field on a stretcher, but the first tests he underwent immediately excluded serious consequences for the Celtics point guard, who suffered “only” a concussion

According to the protocol of the league, he will still have to observe a rest period and then prove that he no longer has symptoms due to the accident: he is likely to miss a few games, although the Celtics will not be back on the field before the night between Tuesday and Wednesday in home against Sacramento.

 

Yet another Impeachment for Trump

Trump problems never end …
Is he against everyone or are they all against him?
Maybe both …

After the Russiagate investigation that put the president at risk for impeachment, there is the case of pressure on Ukrainian politicians that would have favored Trump in the elections. The president denied that he had only spoken to Zelens’kyj of Joe Biden.

Although Nancy PelosiΒ (Democratic Party) is beating for her to have an impeachment, it is unlikely that this will happen because the mid-term elections have only guaranteedΒ victory to the parliament and not to the Senate, where an impeachment presentation would be rejected.

Trump is unpleasant to many. His economic power is very large, but other politicians (democrats) would have done some trick to get more votes.

Trump’s consent is falling … but where are all those voters who voted for him in 2016? Trump is one of the few presidents to have lowered unemployment to 4%: a historical record.

Men of the right are always acted on of their power…

The shadows of twin towers

twin
I was only 15 when the tragedy of the collapse of the twin towers happened. An event that shook everyone. These were the years when the Internet was spreading, the years when PC technology evolved and mobile phones were just accessories to call. A few years after 2001, especially thanks to the advent of the Internet, many conspiracy theories will come out. A theme that America has accustomed us to, especially with the moon-landing.
Few ruins remain of the disaster, but many shadows …

INSTAGRAM: from today it is possible to report fake news (even if only in the USA, for now)

instagram

The problem of disinformation through social media is enormous but little is done to combat it, also because it is a headache of extreme complexity. Managing billions of contents and distinguishing the true from the false is something that goes beyond any automatism, which is why the giants of the web have been working for years to understand how to deal with the issue.

Small steps are always better than nothing: in these days Instagram (source Engadget) puts a new functionality for US users, with which it is possible to reporter false news. In the settings, those that are accessed by touching the three vertical dots, you can now report a content as “inappropriate” and then specified “false information”. What happens then? The source isn’t clear: we know that if the report proves to be founded, the post will not be removed but will lose a lot of visibility. The creator of the offending post will not be notified.

The Trump administration postpones duties on Chinese products in mid-December

trump-ansa

The application of commercial duties for products imported from China to the USA postponed for three months: the 10% tax is therefore postponed, and even removed entirely for certain types of products.

Originally the new import taxes had to become operational starting from next September 1st. The new decision seems to be designed not to affect North American consumers, and the retailer industry in general, at a time like the one before Christmas, which historically sees a large number of electronic products invade the market.

The list of products with duties moved in mid-December includes mobile phones, laptops, consoles, screens, some types of games as well as products related to clothing and footwear. For some other products the tariffs have been completely canceled, but at the moment it has not been given a detailed list of what these products are.

Trump warns (and threatens) Google for the 2020 presidential election

trump

The big names of technology are now very important elements in political life and in the electoral campaign, as they can be decisive for the electorate in order to form their own idea and decide for whom to vote. Donald Trump, yesterday, sent a clear signal to Google.

β€œWE ARE WATCHING GOOGLE VERY CLOSELY!”

DONALD TRUMP

Let’s start with the direct quotation, which we also need to explain that “warns / threat” in the title that might seem risky. Everyone can read us what they want in those six words taken from a Donald Trump tweet yesterday, depending on whether you choose the good faith or the suspect.

Donald Trump, lately, is sending more or less clear messages to the big names of Silicon Valley, fearing conditions for the electorate against him. Yesterday morning he again pointed the finger at Google in the name of a hypothetical anti-conservative prejudice, hypothesizing also the existence of a conspiracy in the society to “illegally subvert the Presidential 2020” (hypothesis dryly denied by Google).
