Obama Censoring Out French President’s Use Of the Word “Islamic Terrorist”

White House Censoring Out French President’s Use Of the Word “Islamic Terrorist”

The censoring trend doesn’t just stop at social justice warriors, and Twitter. Apparently the White House wants in on the game, and it’s more than happy to censor foreign world leaders in order to keep the narrative on track.

French Pres. Francois Hollande, during a press event with President Obama, said that “Islamic terrorism,” is at the “roots of terrorism.” He has every reason to mention this, as it was just last year that 130 people were killed and many more were injured, after ISIS suicide bombers opened fire on a theatre filled with unarmed people.

The official White House transcript has Hollande stating, “But we’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism, Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq.”

This is something of a slap in the face to the French, whose families are still dealing with the aftermath of the ISIS attack, and by which Hollande has stated that he will hunt the terrorist group mercilessly. That we refuse to acknowledge the mortal enemies of our friends is something of an insult.

This isn’t necessarily surprising, however. Obama himself has had a hard time even getting the words “Islamic” and “terrorism” into the same sentence. In fact, during his part of the meeting, the word “Islam” didn’t pass through his lips once.

The press event, especially after the censoring of Hollande’s willingness to call a spade a spade, will likely not inspire too much confidence in the international community on the United State’s willingness to deal with a very real threat. What it very well may do, is continue to inspire the confidence of Islamic terrorists who won’t be too scared of a President that is too afraid to even mention them by occupation.

 

According to MRCtv.org, the White House pulled the initial video of both Hollande and the translator, and replaced it with a censored version that has both completely cut out during the sentence in question. You can see the video below.

Wireless Charging getting rid of the wires

Wireless Charging
by Tia Ghose, Senior Writer | April 20, 2015 02:59pm ET

MP900398879

If you’ve ever untangled a Gordian knot of wires and cords, or seen your 2-year-old sucking on your laptop charger, you understand the appeal of wireless charging.

Until recently, however, there weren’t alternatives to charging through bulky wires and cords. But as wireless charging becomes more advanced, it may be used to power a wide variety of things other than phones or watches, such as lamps or even electric buses, experts say.

But just what is wireless charging? And why is a technology developed a century ago just now becoming popular? We talked to a few experts to find out. [Quiz: The Science of Electricity]http://www.livescience.com/29227-quiz-the-science-of-electricity.html


How it works

Wireless charging as a concept has been around since inventor and physicist Nikola Tesla first concluded that you could transfer power between two objects via an electromagnetic field, said Ron Resnick, president of the Power Matters Alliance, which has a wireless charging protocol.

Essentially, wireless charging uses a loop of coiled wires around a bar magnet — which is known as an inductor. When an electric current passes through the coiled wire, it creates an electromagnetic field around the magnet, which can then be used to transfer a voltage, or charge, to something nearby, Resnick said.

Most wireless power stations nowadays use a mat with an inductor inside, although electric toothbrushes, for example, have long had wireless charging embedded in their bases. Because the strength of the electromagnetic field drops sharply with distance (as the square of the distance between the objects), a device must be fairly close to a charging station to get much power that way, Resnick said.

But although the basic concept of wireless charging has been understood for more than 100 years, scientists hadn’t figured out a way to efficiently transfer large amounts of power using this technique, Resnick said. The amount of electric charge transferred is proportional to the number of coils that can be looped around the tiny bar magnet, as well as the strength of the magnet. Until recently, wires and electronics couldn’t be made small enough and cheaply enough to make wireless charging feasible.

Improvements in technology

But that’s changed in recent years.

“The cost to do it has been really reduced,” Resnick told Live Science. “To make it more efficient, you have to have very, very flat coils of wire,” enabling many loops of wire to be coiled around the tiny bar magnet, he said.

What’s more, wireless power stations must charge only objects that are supposed to be charged, such as a phone, and not, for example, a stray penny that falls on it, Resnick said.

To ensure that the wireless charging station doesn’t power an errant object, wireless power stations use tiny transmitters that communicate with small receivers in a device, such as a phone, said John Perzow, vice president of market development for the Wireless Power Consortium, which created the Qi wireless charging technology.

In essence, the receiver “talks” to the charging station, Perzow said. “If it says I’m an authorized Qi receiver, it’s OK to send me some power. I’ll let you know how much power I need, and as those needs change, I’ll let you know. And when I’m done charging, I’ll let you know so you can go back to sleep,” he told Live Science.

Future uses

Nowadays, both the Power Matters Alliance and Wireless Power Consortium have developed competing protocols, or systems, for wirelessly charging devices. Existing systems are used primarily to charge smartphones or smartwatches.

But wireless power may soon extend to many more applications. For instance, electric buses in South Korea can now be charged through a wireless platform, and IKEA is rolling out a new line of furniture, including lamps and tables, with built-in charging stations.

Other groups are integrating wireless charging stations into public locations so that people with so-called battery anxiety — that ever-present fear of running out of juice — can charge their devices on the go, Perzow said.

As technology improves, it may be possible to charge bigger and more power-hungry devices, such as blenders or even vacuum cleaners, Resnick said.

And companies are already designing systems in which wireless charging platforms in hotel rooms will be able to not only charge phones, but also figure out when people are in their rooms, sync their TV to the last spot in a movie they were watching on the plane and sense whether the air conditioning should be cranked up, Perzow said.
