All brothel areas to be closed…

Jakarta (AFP) – One of Indonesia’s oldest red-light districts was demolished on Monday in an operation overseen by hundreds of police and troops, as authorities press on with a plan to close all brothel areas in the Muslim-majority country.

Dozens of illegal bars and brothels along a polluted riverside strip in north Jakarta — known locally as Kalijodo — were reduced to rubble by excavators.

The bars — many marked by neon beer signs and illustrations of beautiful women luring men — were torn down by the machines in a matter of minutes, leaving behind nothing but splintered wood, brick and old mattresses.

Elsewhere police searched a three-storey hotel for any remaining residents before a digger ripped the entire structure to the ground with a spectacular crash.

North Jakarta Mayor Rustam Effendi, who oversaw the demolition, said the buildings were illegal and the demolition would make way for a public park.

“There was open prostitution there and all kinds of other things as a result, like liquor,” he told AFP.

During the eviction of residents over the past week, police seized and destroyed large quantities of alcohol.

The plan angered long-time residents and there had been fears that protesters would try to disrupt the demolition. But thousands living in the area agreed to leave in the days beforehand and the operation went smoothly.

Jakarta authorities decided to take action after a fatal car accident early this month blamed on a man who had been drinking in the riverside shanty area.

Hundreds of curious onlookers from neighbouring areas and trash collectors seeking scrap materials gathered to watch the spectacle, despite heavy rain.

One elderly food vendor welcomed the idea of a park in the area, but another was worried the destruction of Kalijodo would hit his business.

“For sure it will be less,” Agus Cendol told AFP.

Prostitution is illegal in Indonesia but is rampant in major cities.

The government last week instructed local authorities to shut down an estimated 100 red-light districts across the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country.

Local governments, which have substantial power, have already closed dozens of red-light districts in recent years.

Goodbye WiFi! New Li-Fi Internet is 100 times faster (and safer) according to them…

by Ben Taub,

The inventor of the electric lightbulb could hardly have imagined that one day his creation would be used not only to illuminate homes around the world, but also to transmit data that would enable people to download information from satellites in space to small hand-held devices. However, with the introduction of Li-Fi, household lighting could soon double as a form of data transmission that’s up to 100 times faster than Wi-Fi.

Li-Fi, which was first invented by Harold Haas of the University of Edinburgh in 2011, uses visible light communication (VLC) to send data at extremely high speeds. Essentially, this works like an incredibly fast signal lamp, flashing on and off in order to relay messages in binary code (1s and 0s). In previous lab-based experiments, the technology was able to transmit up to 224 gigabits per second. To put this in perspective, Wi-Fi is capable of reaching speeds of around 600 megabits per second.

The technology has now been deployed in real-life situations for the first time, thanks to the work of Estonian start-up Velmenni, which has begun trialling Li-Fi in offices and other industrial settings in Tallinn. In these environments, they were able to achieve connection speeds of around one gigabit per second.

Aside from its superior speed, Li-Fi also boasts a number of other benefits over Wi-Fi. For instance, the fact that the signal is carried by optical light means that it cannot travel through walls, therefore enhancing the security of local networks. Obviously, this produces a number of limitations as well, since it suggests that connection will be lost if a user leaves the room, representing a major hurdle that must be overcome if the technology is to be successfully implemented. However, if this barrier can be surmounted, then the use of the visible spectrum could allow Li-Fi to send messages across a much wider range of frequencies than Wi-Fi, which operates between the frequencies of 2.4 gigahertz and 5 gigahertz.

As such, it has been suggested that Li-Fi could provide the answer to increasing frequency congestion as Internet usage continues to rise across the world. According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast, global monthly data usage is expected to exceed 24.3 exabytes by 2019 – a volume which current wireless connections are not able to handle.

Sabin sexual assault claims -a whiff of corruption and covering up?

On The Level

John Key and Mike Sabin

By the looks of it the Mike Sabin sexual assault case took yet another turn two days ago when it was transferred from an undisclosed District Court to New Zealand’s High Court. The location of the new Court has also been concealed from the public. This sudden move occurred the day Sabin’s name suppression orders were due to expire. We have yet to find out the identity of the jurist responsible but given the case was on appeal then one could be forgiven for suspecting the order came from New Zealand’s court of appeal.

The entire world is now watching as New Zealand’s National party government attempts to bury its absolutely filthy laundry.

The CIA allegedly has a secret time travel program…

Future Travel People Years

Portals are found in many books, movies and video games. Some of them are links between distant places, others travel back or forward in time, and the most powerful ones lead into different dimensions. Most people presume that these gateways exist only in the realm of science fiction, but there are some who strongly support the idea that portals have been opened in ancient times and quite possibly in the present days as well.

According to two National Security US Informants, the Department of Defense developed time travel technology over 45 years ago. As early as 1967, the US government possessed a fully operational time travel machinery built on the quantum access researched by Tesla. This technology has been used in order to cloak military facilities, as well as provide political and economic advantages by way of knowing what the future holds. Some claim the CIA seized Tesla’s papers on teleportation shortly after his death.
