Security iPhone
Scribe: N. Tru Bass
Apple has recently admitted to reducing the speed in older iphones. After the CEO of benchmarking app Geekbench said that its not in your head.
 
Apple has released the following statement: “Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

Joint military exercises are customary for the allies. The request was made to avoid provoking North Korea during the games.

The exercises are official training for a collapse of the North Korean regime or conflict. Military training are both field exercises and computer based. The games are scheduled to end on 18 March which cuts into spring military exercises.

Despite being in the KKK corridor, Roy Moore is being accused by double digit women of sexual abuse and most of the accusers were underage at the time. 

White Males are not seeing the problem as his campaign fund been running over time time to collect the new contributions since the allegations were made. 

Alabama Clergymen have united to push back against the accepted sexual abuse 

The Mississippi Klan has taken to Moore like they did one just over a year ago with Donald Trump, sending in hundreds of thousands to make sure their man has a voice in congress. According to recent reports Moors funding in 2012 came 60 percent from white supremacist, however, they could be wrong about his intentions. 

But, I doubt it.

How is the US involved with the Suprising Zimbabwean Coup

AFRICOM

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

 

Long time president of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe made international news last week when an American was arrested for negative comments about the president. She was scheduled to be in court on Wednesday to face charges that has escalated since she was originally arrested.

However, it is not likely that she will ever face any charges and if she does it will prove to be just an farce, that sets the New Jersey native free. As of last week there was no rumor or talk of Mugabe being ousted or even unpopular. The sudden coup is clearly backed by the US military and is a unilateral take over of a country orchestrated by a democratic republic that denies ever being involved in this type of international bullishness.

Army Standards Lowering now accepting Mentally Ill

Army

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

In August in an attempt to bolster the number of soldiers before the fourth quarter of 2018, mentally ill, and substance abuse candidates will be accepted. 

Previously, people applied for the US Army were denied entry if problems such as self mutilation or drug abuse came up on the application. No longer. 

With a looming goal of recruiting 80,000 new recruits by September 2018, the Army is laxing its veting process to reach its goal to continue to fight a stateless war. The information surfaced after a mentally ill Air Force recruit's mass shooting at a Texas church sounded alarm bells concerning mental health among military ranks. 

Under the new program applicants with issues will be provided waivers allowing them to serve. For the past eight years waivers was eliminated after a spike in suicides among US fighting men and women.
