Gorbachev: US dragging Russia into new Cold War, which might grow into armed conflict

According to a poll conducted by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center VCIOM in November 2014, the possibility of a new Cold War was considered likely by over 30 percent of Russians, being the highest number in the past seven years. Every fourth Russian (25 percent of respondents) believed such a conflict was already ongoing. Mikhail Gorbachev has accused the US of dragging Russia into a new Cold War. The former Soviet president fears the chill in relations could eventually spur an armed conflict.

Swedish business office implants RFID chips under staff’s skin

Want to gain entry to your office, get on a bus, or perhaps buy a sandwich? We're all getting used to swiping a card to do all these things. But at Epicenter, a new hi-tech office block in Sweden, they are trying a different approach - a chip under the skin. Felicio de Costa, whose company is one of the tenants, arrives at the front door and holds his hand against it to gain entry. Inside he does the same thing to get into the office space he rents, and he can also wave his hand to operate the photocopier.

White House: Taliban is an “armed insurgency,” not a “terrorist organization”

The refusal to label the Taliban a terrorist organization leaves the Obama administration room to make concessions (like trading 5 Taliban leaders for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl). It also allows the Obama administration to ridiculously claim that it has achieved the goal of “decimating” the terrorist networks within Afghanistan (which you absolutely cannot say if the Taliban is factored into the equation).

INTERVENTION IN CIVIL WARS ‘FAR MORE LIKELY IN OIL-RICH NATIONS’

DHS REVEALS SUPER BOWL SURVEILLANCE TECHNIQUES -- SORT OF

Also, the Secret Service will conduct "open-source social media monitoring for situational awareness," officials said. As Nextgov first reported last summer, the agency has been shopping for software that can identify sarcasm, among other things. The Secret Service will be searching social media messages this Sunday to discern between real and bogus threats during the Super Bowl, according to Department of Homeland Security officials. But agents will not be using sarcasm-detecting software they have expressed an interest in buying, the agency said.

Turkey's $7.9 Billion Mystery Money That's Simply Vanished

Something bizarre is happening on Turkey’s accounting books, and nobody’s quite sure why. Turkey attracted $7.9 billion of income from unexplained sources during the first eight months of 2014, compared to an outflow of $90 million during the same period a year ago, according to the central bank data. In the three months that followed, $5.6 billion of that left the country.

Republicans in Congress have sought to cut back on the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program or food stamp program as part of a larger plan to balance the budget.

1,000 paratroopers from Panther Brigade headed to Iraq this week

The 82nd Airborne, and more specifically its 3rd Brigade Combat Team, are no strangers to Iraq. Since 2003, parts of the brigade have deployed in support of U.S. efforts there on at least three occasions. Now, more than three years after the U.S. military presence in Iraq was thought over, about a quarter of the Panther Brigade will return with a new mission to help train Iraqi forces to fight the Islamic State.

Pentagon documents: Obama to request big defense budget hike

President Barack Obama will ask Congress for a hefty, almost 8 percent boost for the Pentagon, including $5.3 billion to equip and train Iraqi soldiers and moderate Syrian rebels to fight Islamic State militants in the Middle East. Obama will ask for $534 billion for the core budget of the Defense Department — a $38 billion increase — according to "pre-decisional" Pentagon documents obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday. That means there could be some slight changes when the budget actually comes out Monday.

French police question eight-year-old over terrorism comments

Out of control AI will not kill us, believes Microsoft Research chief

A Microsoft Research chief has said he thinks artificial intelligence systems could achieve consciousness, but has played down the threat to human life. Eric Horvitz's position contrasts with that of several other leading thinkers. Last December, Prof Stephen Hawking told the BBC that such machines could "spell the end of the human race".

Cops Going After Kids Shoveling Snow – They Want Their Cut

Ok – believe it or not, this really shows how the new younger generation of police are anti-society and just insanely pro-government beyond common sense. With cities and municipalities dead broke, confiscating cash from people pretending it is somehow tainted without any proof under Civil Asset Forfeiture was bad enough. Now they are really going over the top. This is not an isolated incident. Towns in the North East are targeting teenagers who traditionally made money during winter shoveling snow.

Alaska’s State Budget Collapses by 50%

Alaska, once oil-rich, now faces tough decisions on what parts of the state’s budget can be cut, and where it can find other sources of revenue to confront deficits it has never faced before. The part-time state legislature, whose 2014 session ended in April, had passed a $6.1-billion budget for 2015, but since then a barrel of oil has lost more than half its value. Add to that, Alaska gets 90% of its budget from oil taxes. So when the 2015 legislative session began Jan. 27, the state’s budget was $3.5 billion short.

Another Ex-Central Planner Speaks Up: Currency War Policy "Risks Major Downward Shock To Asset Prices"

Merv "The Swerv" King - former governor of The Bank of England - has joined the ranks of those ex-central-planners-who-feel-the-need-to-protect-their-legacy-by-rewriting-history-and-admitting-the-entire-thing-is-crazy. Speaking in Tokyo overnight, King said he’s concerned that financial markets believe real interest rates will remain very low for a very long time which has created "a significant disequilibrium in the world economy," adding that he does "not believe and expect a market economy to thrive on real interest rates that are close to zero." Warning that many nations realize "they have pushed monetary policy as far as it can go," King added that with the additional risk of currency wars, "markets will discover that they have been pushing asset prices to an excessively high level and there will be a major downward shock to asset prices."
