20190816 Trump want buy Grønland
Donald Trump reportedly wants to purchase Greenland from Denmark

20190821 Greenland: Trump criticises 'nasty' Denmark over cancelled visit
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-49423968
US President Donald Trump has called the Danish leader "nasty" after she rebuffed his idea of buying Greenland.
He lashed out hours after Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said she was "sorry" that Mr Trump had abruptly called off a state visit to Denmark.
She has dismissed the suggestion of such a land deal as "absurd".
Queen Margrethe II invited Mr Trump to visit Denmark on 2 September, and the manner of his cancellation has stunned the Scandinavian nation.

https://jyllands-posten.dk/politik/ECE11557092/regeringen-vil-styrke-forsvaret-i-arktis/
While US President Donald Trump is waking up with his announcement to buy Greenland,
Defense Secretary Trine Bramsen warns that the Danish defense presence in the Arctic will be strengthened in the coming years.
She points out the Arctic as one of the top five security policy challenges for Denmark in line with the threat
of terror, cyber attacks, uncontrolled migrant flows and an aggressive Russia.
"As the ice melts due to climate change, major changes are taking place and new threat images are being created to the north.
The Arctic's presence in the Arctic will be strengthened in the coming years in response to this development to ensure stability and security," says Trine Bramsen.

Within 15 years, the average annual temperature has risen by about five degrees and has melted the ice.
This releases mineral wealth: precious stones, iron ore, oil, gold, copper, uranium and rare earths, which are needed for the booming construction of rechargeable batteries.

The RMS Titanic has been underwater for more than 100 years, lying about 600km (370 miles) off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada.
The passenger liner, which was the largest ship of its time, hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York in 1912.
Of the 2,200 passengers and crew onboard, more than 1,500 died.


20190823 Russia launches floating nuclear reactor in Arctic despite warnings

Work began on the 144m Akademik Lomonosov in Saint Petersburg in 2006.
But environmental groups have long warned of the dangers of the project, dubbing it a potential "Chernobyl on ice" and a "nuclear Titanic."
When it arrives in Pevek, a town of 5,000 in the Siberian region of Chukotka, it will replace a local nuclear plant and a closed coal plant.
It is due to go into operation by the end of year, mainly serving the region's oil platforms as Russia develops the exploitation of hydrocarbons in the Arctic.

How China the copycat became a tech giant to rival the US
From having four Silicon Valleys to scoring a world first — a city with a 100 per cent electric bus fleet —
China has taken on the US for technological supremacy. Insight looks at how the country did it.
...
Across the country, there are an estimated 421,000 electric buses, or 18 per cent of its bus fleet, compared with 300 electric buses in the US.
“The US, Japan and Germany were the pioneers in electric vehicles.
China started only in 2016 but has now become the biggest manufacturer, with over 1.2 million sold last year,” said Jia.
“We should be able to produce every part of the electric vehicle locally … China has the biggest capacity for battery manufacturing, and we’re the biggest providers.”
It is little surprise that China is still the world’s largest market for electric vehicles.
Shanghai, Beijing and Hangzhou are among more than 30 Chinese cities aiming for 100 per cent electric bus fleets by next year.

The 4km-wide DMZ runs for 250km across the Korean peninsula, around 50km north of Seoul and 200km south of Pyongyang.
At its centre is the Military Demarcation Line (MDL), where the front line lay when the ceasefire stopping Korean War hostilities was signed in 1953.
Under the agreement both sides agreed to pull back their forces 2,000m.
To the south, Seoul has established a further buffer zone of varying width where civilian access is restricted.
A barrier separating North and South, heavy weaponry is banned from within the DMZ.
Patrols are allowed but cannot cross the MDL
and no more than 1,000 people from each side are permitted inside the zone at any one time.
It is also littered with minefields.
The areas immediately outside it are some of the most highly fortified places on earth, bristling with artillery, military camps and more minefields.

20190811 License plate > "NULL"
https://mashable.com/article/dmv-vanity-license-plate-def-con-backfire/

He tried to prank the DMV. Then his vanity license plate backfired big time.
Everyone hates parking tickets.
Not everyone, however, is an information security researcher with a mischievous side and a freshly minted vanity license plate reading "NULL."
It seemed that a privately operated citation processing center had a database of outstanding tickets, and,
for some reason — possibly due to incomplete data on their end — many of those tickets were assigned to the license plate "NULL."
In other words, the processing center was likely trying to tell its systems it didn't know the plates of the offending cars.
Instead, with Droogie's vanity plate now in play, it pegged all those outstanding tickets on him.
Specifically, over $12,000 worth of outstanding tickets.
"Basically," observed Droogie, "this is bullshit”
After contacting the DMV and the LAPD, and painstakingly explaining his situation, they both told him the same thing: change your plates.
"I said, 'No, I didn’t do anything wrong.'"
But the tickets were still piling up.
Thankfully, the DMV contacted the private citation processing company, which then erased the $12,000 in fines.
However, and this part is key, they didn't actually fix the problem with their system.

« What's on your mind? »

At this, he took up with his eyes his son, whose face still resembled his mother, looked very dazed and had an expression of terror, and looked at us again.

« What are you doing? »

« I don't know if I can come to understand it, but I just had a dream, and I want you to help me.

« What is it? »

« I am afraid that I haven't told you the truth, and as soon as I say it I'll tell you everything.

« I see. »

That evening we sat on a bench, and we didn't hear for hours, but after five minutes we heard the cry of mother, and in a loud voice her voice became loud again.

« Oh God! mother! »

« Are you there? »

« Yes, it is me! »

« Good. Why, you heard my voice when you came in.?

« Yes, dear father — I will take to sleep with you; but you might be scared and angry at the same time.

« I know, dear son.

We were lying in bed the next morning when the next morning's news came that the people had been robbed and murdered; and when we heard of that we came
