    Donald Trump is not only undermining democracy here at home, but he’s also emboldening dangerous authoritarian movements around the world. Trump’s presidency has become America’s most dangerous export.

    *FIRST: Trump has provided cover for authoritarian leaders around the world who are actively attacking the media and suppressing the truth to entrench their power.*

    He congratulated Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on his electoral victory, despite Orban’s efforts to undermine democracy and stifle freedom of the press.

    On Twitter, Trump vowed to join with Polish president Andrzej Duda to “fight the fake news”. Duda has placed media outlets under strict government control.

    Trump welcomed to the White House the Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, who has locked up tens of thousands of his political opponents and decimated the human-rights community there.

    Trump reached out to Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte, who has invoked Hitler’s mass extermination of Jews as a model for how he would like to dispose of drug dealers and addicts.

    He has courted Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has imprisoned critics and human-rights activists, caused thousands of civilian deaths in Yemen, and – evidence increasingly suggests – is responsible for the gruesome death of Washington Post journalist and U.S. resident Jamal Khashoggi.

    And, of course, Trump infamously made excuses for Vladimir Putin when asked about the murder of Russian journalists.

    *SECOND: Trump’s anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric have lent legitimacy to racist and xenophobic political parties across Europe. *His success playing on racial fears and stoking nationalist sentiment has been a model for their efforts.

    Look at Italy’s new deputy prime minister, Matteo Salvini, who campaigned on mass deportations and has evoked the language of Benito Mussolini.

    And Austria’s far-right Freedom Party has demanded tighter border security, expedited deportations, and financial “sanctions” on immigrants.

    Close behind them, although not yet in power, are France’s Marine Le Pen and Britain’s Nigel Farage, who Trump has complimented on Twitter.

    *THIRD:  Trump has undermined the international institutions committed to protecting human rights and defending democracy. *

    Unlike former U.S. presidents, Trump doesn’t publicly mention human rights.

    In a break with decades of U.S. foreign policy, Trump has attacked NATO, weakening the alliance as Putin threatens to undermine democracies in Western Europe.

    He has also called the European Union a “foe,” playing into nationalist movements.

    As in the 1930s, economic strains are fueling the rise of demagogues who direct anger and resentment toward scapegoats such as immigrants and minorities – lying about them with impunity.

    But the truth is still getting through to most people, and democracy is still alive. Yet in sharp contrast to the 1930s when the president of the United States defended our democratic ideals, Trump is now helping lead the charge against them. Reported by Eurasia Review 9 hours ago.

    There is no room for complacency in the fight against violent extremist organizations, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told his worldwide counterparts.

    Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford welcomed chiefs of defense from 82 nations to the third Counter Violent Extremist Organizations conference. “We are here today to have a candid exchange of views, and find ways to enhance our effectiveness in dealing with violent extremism,” he said.

    *Extremism Affects Everyone*

    All involved realize that violent extremism is a transregional threat that affects the security of all nations, the chairman said in his introductory remarks. “I think we all recognize that violent extremism is a generational challenge that demands we develop solutions that are politically, fiscally and militarily sustainable,” he said.

    The chiefs also recognize that defeating transregional extremist organizations requires a broad network of like-minded nations to share intelligence, information and best practices, Dunford said. The chiefs also agree there are times for collective or cooperative action, he said.

    “Most importantly, while we recognize that combating violent extremism requires a whole-of-government approach, we also appreciate the military dimension of the challenge and the unique role the chiefs of defense have in influencing, developing and implementing comprehensive solutions,” the chairman said.

    Each chief, he stressed, brings a unique perspective to the challenge, influenced by geography, neighbors, political and legal systems and more.

    *Cooperation Supports Progress*

    Dunford detailed the progress against violent extremism so far — and it has been extensive, he said. “Our progress has been enabled by improved information sharing in military, intelligence and law enforcement channels,” the chairman said. He noted that Operation Gallant Phoenix — an information-sharing effort — has grown from fewer than 20 people representing two nations, to more than 250 people representing 25 nations. “This initiative has contributed an impressive number of disrupted attacks, arrests and prosecutions,” Dunford said. “In addition to Operation Gallant Phoenix, there are complementary issues that are being developed in a number of regions to include West Africa and Southeast Asia.”

    The effort against violent extremists has also disrupted the flow of foreign fighters, slowed resources going to terror groups and cut into the narrative that ideologies like the one the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria espouses is successful.

    This must continue, he said, as it is the long-term solution to extremism.

    *Attacks Down*

    The chairman noted that 2017 marked the third consecutive year in the decline of terrorist attacks and deaths worldwide. “The progress against ISIS has been particularly encouraging,” he said. “In 2017, compared to 2016, global ISIS attacks were down 23 percent. The lethality of external ISIS attacks have also declined. In 2015 ISIS averaged 25 killed per attack. In 2018, the average number killed was three.”

    In Iraq and Syria, ISIS holds 2 percent of the territory that they held in 2014 and their access to resources has been greatly reduced, Dunford said. The flow of foreign fighters into Iraq and Syria has been reduced to about 100 per month from a high of about 1500 per month. In addition, many ISIS experts have been killed including external operation leaders and facilitators.

    ISIS media production has fallen by more than 85 percent and its monthly publication hasn’t been produced in over a year.

    “But I think we are all realists in this room that despite recent successes against ISIS and the positive trends, we know there is actually much work to be done,” the chairman said.

    *Underlying Conditions*

    Little has been done to address the underlying conditions that lead to violent extremism, he said. Challenges remain cooperation politically, militarily, in intelligence and in law enforcement.

    ISIS itself is far from defeated, Dunford said, and has a presence in countries from West Africa to Southeast Asia. The group continues to search for areas to grow, and they are redoubling efforts in cyberspace to inspire homegrown violent extremists. “We saw that last year in the United Kingdom, Spain, Egypt, the Philippines and the United States,” the chairman said.

    Coalition forces are clearing ISIS from its last territories in Iraq and Syria, but ISIS “is already evolving to implement a more diffuse model of command and control and operations, And they are looking to maintain relevance by exploiting disenfranchisement and conducting high profile attacks,” he said.

    *Greatest Danger is Complacency*

    Al-Qaida is not dead yet, either, and that group is looking to enhance collaboration with its affiliates and increasing its connectivity and access to operatives and targets, Dunford said.

    “In short, ISIS, al-Qaida and associated groups remain resilient, determined and adaptable,” he said. “While some areas of sanctuary have been reduced, both groups are operating in a more dispersed and clandestine way, leveraging the internet to keep their narrative alive and becoming less susceptible to conventional military action.”

    The greatest danger is complacency, the chairman said. “A misreading of our progress to date and a misunderstanding of the character of the threat may cause political leaders to lose focus on violent extremism while they turn to other pressing challenges,” he said. “I believe those of us gathered today have a good appreciation for the consequences of prematurely relieving pressure on the enemy and allowing them the space to reconstitute.”

    The general also believes that it is a generational threat, and that the efforts of the last 18 years must continue. “In many ways, the threat we face today is more virulent, and it has become more difficult to detect and disrupt plots,” Dunford said.

    *Looking Ahead*

    Intelligence professionals are looking ahead trying to fathom the threat from violent extremism in the next decades, he said.

    “The character of the threat will be affected by how we address conflicts in places like Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Chad, Mali and the Philippines,” the chairman said. “As we discussed in our previous gatherings, how we win the peace is most important. Our collective success in stabilizing, reconstructing, and implementing effective governance will determine the size and scope of the future extremist threat.”

    How nations identify, prosecute, de-radicalize and reintegrate foreign fighters will also help determine how violent extremism develops — or doesn’t develop — in the future, Dunford said.“One example of the challenge of prosecuting foreign fighters is the situation in Syria,” the chairman said. “Currently, we have over 700 detainees from over 40 countries in … Syrian Democratic Force custody. The progress in returning these fighters home for prosecution has been delayed by political considerations and inconsistent legal frameworks.”

    Nations need to address the challenge “and prevent these detainees from becoming the leaders of tomorrow’s extremist organizations,” he said.

    Migrants and the challenges of large populations becoming open to radicalization is another problem, the chairman noted.

    “Finally, our ability to meet the challenges of extremists leveraging innovations in technology will impact the character of the threat,” Dunford said. “We must develop effective measures to mitigate the risk of extremists using cyberspace and advanced technical means to enhance their communications, recruitment, logistics and lethality.” Reported by Eurasia Review 8 hours ago.

    What happens to fish and other sea creatures underwater during a hurricane· *Fish and other ocean creatures face deadly conditions during a hurricane — sometimes the extreme weather strands them on land or far out at sea. *
    · *Hurricanes can generate massive waves, so most sea creatures — including dolphins, whales, and sharks — avoid the rough surface water and swim to calmer seas.*
    · *But in some cases, the extreme conditions can help animals thrive. *
    · *Dolphin births increased after Hurricane Katrina damaged or destroyed almost 90% of fishing boats in the Mississippi Sound.*
    · *Watch the video above to learn what happens underwater during a hurricane. *

    Hurricanes can be just as deadly for marine life, sometimes stranding them on land or far out at sea. But sometimes marine life benefits or even thrives after these extreme weather events.

    Following is a transcript of the video.

    Normally when a hurricane is headed for us, we run the other way. But not Isla. She's a leatherback turtle who was meandering off the coast of Virginia when she accidentally swam straight into Hurricane Florence. Scientists were worried she'd get caught up in the worst of the storm but Isla managed to survive by swimming toward deeper waters.

    Turns out, there's a part of hurricanes we don't often think about: What happens under the surface. And Isla is just one example.

    Far out at sea, fish that live near the surface might feel some turbulence as a storm passes. But most sea creatures — including dolphins, whales, and sharks — avoid the rough surface water and swim to calmer seas. But it's a different story near shore.

    Changes in water temperature and salinity can be catastrophic for marine life. Hurricanes can generate massive waves. Which mix warm surface water with colder, saltier water below generating currents that extend up to 91 meters below the surface. These currents are so strong that they can sweep manatees inland to canals and ponds or away from the coastal waters they prefer, and out into the open ocean. Where they can become disorientated, and even die.  

    Hurricanes also bring heavy rain, so freshwater often floods coastal regions. And because freshwater is less dense than salt water, it sits on top of the sea water like oil on vinegar. Where it can prevent oxygen from reaching the salty layer below. And disrupt the salinity levels, which can lead to sores, lesions, and ultimately death in whales, dolphins, and porpoises.

    Hurricanes also kick up dirt and sand in shallow seas. Which can kill fish by clogging their gills. Experts think this is probably one of the factors that killed an estimated 9.4 million saltwater fish in 1992, during Hurricane Andrew. The dirty, murky water also blocks sunlight from reaching corals and seagrass. In fact, scientists found that coral cover in the Caribbean decreases by 17% in just one year after a hurricane strikes. And that's in addition to the stress coral already face from human interference.

    But it's not always so bad for sea life. After Hurricane Katrina damaged or destroyed almost 90% of fishing boats in the Mississippi Sound scientists observed a huge increase in dolphin births. Without the fishing boats, dolphins suddenly found themselves with more available prey which helped their populations thrive.

    And of course, hurricanes impact land animals too. Sometimes, they change ecosystems altogether. For instance, the Hawaiian island of Kauai is now inundated with feral chickens. Locals say they're the descendants of domesticated chickens that escaped when hurricanes blew open coops. And in North Carolina, torrential rains from Hurricane Florence overwhelmed more than one hundred hog waste lagoons possibly releasing pig waste into the local water supply.

    Unfortunately, research indicates that the intensity of hurricanes will only increase with climate change so if we don't get a handle on it soon, we'll be in deep sh... — pig waste.

    MCHENRY, Ill. (PRWEB) October 17, 2018

    Jessup Manufacturing Company announced the introduction of Matador™, a non-adhesive reverse print media at SGIA Expo 2018, October 18-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Matador™ reverse print media is a 40 mil material engineered to be printed on the underside to protect the printed surface from wear and tear. This reverse print media is ideal for retail counters and floors, transportation stations, museums, educational facilities, and recreational facilities, to name a few.

    Matador™ is available in two different textures and an optional non-slip backer available in clear and white. Matador™ has passed ASTM D-2047 and offers slip resistance and durability for high traffic areas. The material is easy to install, easy to remove and gives brands great visibility for short-term promotions.

    “We are excited to show SGIA attendees our new Matador™ reverse print graphics media. Matador™ moves the printing industry forward by providing a thinner gauge, more sustainable product than competitive offerings,” said Rob Jessup, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jessup Manufacturing Company. “Our customers are always looking for innovative materials that can help them stay competitive and Jessup continuously develops solutions that meet their needs. Matador™ helps our customers achieve their performance goals.”

    This clear, vinyl material is ideal for large format printing equipment that uses latex and UV inks. Matador’s printability, attractiveness, versatility and sustainability make it one of the most advanced non-adhesive vinyl systems in the industry.

    NOTA NOTA allows users to create their own personalized perfume from the comfort for their homes

    United Arab Emirates (PRWEB) October 17, 2018

    Today, NOTA NOTA launches its campaign for a sleek, smart mixing machine that perfectly blends scents to create a customized, unique perfume. As a ‘smart’ mixing machine, NOTA NOTA can be controlled using a mobile app, which also acts as a social network platform, allowing users to exchange recipes with other perfumers.

    The NOTA NOTA machine produces 5mL of liquid perfume within 60 seconds, no labor required, right on a countertop. This innovative new product accommodates up to eight scents at a time, so users have the ability to achieve an incredibly wide variety of fragrances to suit any occasion.

    “I was thinking about 3D printing when I found a perfume I liked. It was then that the the idea of combining these two concepts together came to me,” said NOTA NOTA Creator Abdullah Bahabri. “NOTA NOTA will give people an easy way to design and produce their own perfume that speaks to their style. With NOTA NOTA, you can reach people looking for new perfume experiences, and it’s easy to use with less equipment and less mess.”

    Perfumes and colognes consist of different notes, which determine the overall scent. Picking the right scent comes down to two main factors: preferences and a body’s chemistry. With NOTA NOTA, users will have the option to mix partly natural scents including bergamot, jasmine, magnolia, taif rose, moss, vanilla, sandalwood, marine and musk. To see if a perfume is a fit, users choose which types of notes they prefer and then test the types of scents on their skin, letting them sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

    Combining up to 12 scents, NOTA NOTA fragrance bottles hold up to 5mL of perfume, and the NOTA NOTA app is iOS and Android compatible.

    NOTA NOTA is currently available for pre-order for $399 on Indiegogo. For more information or to pre-order, visit

    KEY WEST, Fla. (PRWEB) October 17, 2018

    On Sunday, September 23, 2018, a group of Fury Water Adventures crew members and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) volunteers kayaked to neighboring mangrove areas as one of their several environmental cleanups of the year. Consistent with their mission to celebrate and preserve Key West's marine ecosystem, Fury Water Adventures actively advocates ocean conservation through their environmentally conscious business practices.

    The clean-up effort commenced at Woman Key, an island nestled within the purview of the Key West National Wildlife Refuge. The team also visited Boca Grande, an island east of Woman Key that undergoes periodic cleanups due to the juvenile fish and migratory bird populations located there.

    Scott Saunders, President of Fury Water Adventures, weighed in about his company’s dedication to preserving the environment.

    “The ocean gives us so much. It makes it possible for me to create jobs and to give long-lasting memories to those who go on amazing adventures with us every year. It’s only right to give back.”

    As a seasoned entrepreneur and long-time Key West resident, Mr. Saunders is an ardent environmental conservationist and has built Fury's core values to support environmental conservation.

    “As a 4th generation Conch, I will continue to commit time and resources to defend, preserve and restore our oceans for the benefit of future generations.”

    Additional clean-up efforts for the rest of the year are currently in the works and volunteers are always needed and welcomed. If you would like to participate in an up-coming cleanup, please contact Max Mungall at 305.407.0656 or
