The Red Coats Are Leaving…The E.U


“George Soros warned of “Black Friday” if the U.K. voted to leave the European Union. The pound is crashing and stocks are tanking. So far, so right. But what happens next and why does it matter?

The result of the U.K. referendum is unprecedented: No country has ever left the 28-nation EU. The vote could have enormous economic and political consequences around Europe, and further afield.

It will take at least two years for a British exit (Brexit) to be negotiated. But the fallout will be immediate, beyond the financial market turmoil.”

    “…”not only does poverty create significant social strains, it also eats into labour force participation, and undermines the ability to invest in education and improve health outcomes”.
    “Our assessment is that, if left unchecked, these four forces – participation, productivity, polarisation and poverty – will corrode the underpinnings of growth and hold back gains in US living standards,” she added.
    The report called on the US to invest more in education, as well as implement better social programmes such as childcare to help poorer Americans get jobs.”

    Wave of Racist, Xenophobic Incidents After Brexit Vote Has U.K. Worried

    “Reports of racist incidents and even hate crimes across the U.K. are on the rise after Thursday’s vote, leading to concern that the divisive campaign over leaving the European Union has emboldened certain extremist elements of society. More than 100 incidents “of racial abuse and hate crime” have been reported since Thursday’s vote, according to the Independent. Many of those incidents had the perpetrators reference the vote explicitly to justify the violence.”

    The uncomfortable question: Was the Brexit vote based on racism?

    The idea is hardly new; accusations of racism have followed the anti-E.U. movement for years, with some reason. Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (Ukip), has spoke of the “n—-r vote” and told reporters that he would use a racist slang word to refer to Chinese restaurants.

    “In the run up to the E.U. referendum, the official “leave” campaign initially tried to focus on sovereignty and economic issues. However, polls clearly showed that immigration was one of the most, if not the most, important factor for voters. “Immigration is by far the best issue for the ‘Leave’ campaign,” Freddie Sayers, editor in chief of the polling firm YouGov, wrote. “If the coming referendum were only a decision on immigration, the Leave campaign would win by a landslide.”

    So gradually, Boris Johnson and other prominent faces in the campaign began to talk more negatively about immigration.

    In the heated atmosphere before the election, the lines between anti-immigration rhetoric and pure racism became blurry. Just a week before the election Farage, who was not a member of the official “leave” campaign but ran his own movement, unveiled an advertising campaign that showed a crowd of refugees and migrants. Many critics noted that it resembled propaganda put out by Nazi Germany.”

    Supreme Court Strikes Down Abortion Restrictions In Texas

    “The Supreme Court has overturned a Texas law requiring clinics that provide abortions to have surgical facilities and doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The law was predicted to close many clinics and further reduce availability of abortion in Texas; the court has ruled the law violated the Constitution.

    With a 5-3 decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, the court reversed a decision by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, which had upheld the law. Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Chief Justice John Roberts dissented, while Anthony Kennedy joined the liberal justices in the majority.”

    Good morning Realm, During this month of June I’ve been reminiscing about graduations. Going all the way way back to high school. I missed out on high school things like going to my senior prom. So even though I didn’t participate I remember what the popular themes were at that time. I think the featured song was “Close to You” from the second studio album of the same name by Carpenters. According to Wikipedia, “Close to You” was the duo’s song that gained the Carpenters an international reputation for a decade.

            U.S. markets fall and U.K. credit rating cut; no crisis, Treasury chief says – LA Times

            Major U.S. stock indexes fell sharply again Monday and two leading companies cut Britain’s credit rating in the wake of last week’s vote to leave the European Union.

            And although Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew acknowledged the “Brexit” was a headwind for the U.S. economy, he said it should not trigger another financial crisis.

            “The U.S. economy is doing pretty well. It’s performing in a stable, steady way even though there have been substantial headwinds,” Lew told CNBC on Monday before an international financial conference in Washington.

            “There’s no question that this is an additional headwind but it’s something we can manage through, and Europe and the U.K. can manage through,” Lew said. “There’s no sense of a financial crisis developing.”

    Dark Matter May Be Made of Primordial Black Holes

      “If that thought makes your head spin a little, just think about spinning pizza dough into a disc. “After a while, you will notice it has these holes in the texture of the pizza dough,” Kashlinsky said. “It’s the same with space-time,” except those holes are primordial black holes.”

        pizza is clearly of divine origin! – the very gods themselves showing us a glimpse of ultimate-truth through the sacred-sacrament!

    Watch Boston Dynamics’ new SpotMini housekeeping robot load the dishwasher

    made me remember a old Dr. Who episode that mentioned a psychological condition where people found robots disturbing because they looked like people but had no human “body language”. This robot looks dog-like yet… I find somehow makes me feel uncomfortable. They really need to work on it’s appearance.
