New Sentinel nuclear warhead program is 81% over budget. But Pentagon says it must go forward
  • You have a nuclear triad. Even if all the silos went kaput (extremely unlikely) and everyone knew it there are still nuclear subs somewhere in the world carrying nukes. The truth is you only need to have enough functional nuclear weapons to make any attack a very bad day for everyone. That number isn’t that high given a nuclear weapons destructive capacity.

  • China starts smartphone inspections to boost 'anti-espionage efforts', raising fears among expatriates and foreign business people about arbitrary enforcement
  • Fun fact. If you come to Australia the border force can basically do the same thing. Take a burner with you when you travel, it’s not worth the hassle at the airport. Bonus points, if you lose your phone or get it stolen it won’t hurt as much as if it happened to your main device.

  • The L1 line packed

    On a normal day the L1 line is pretty full from central, but on a rainy day when no one wants to walk and, the light rail is running less frequently the trains are absolutely packed and people can’t get on after Capital Square or even Central. Hopefully the metro can take some load off or there’s another plan to increase capacity.

    Watch as the Australian government condemns this in the weakest way possible.

    I hope they find the perpetrators and absolutely eviscerate them in the courts. Absolutely heinous behaviour.

    Unemployment has caused suicide in Australia, new research finds

    Now when economists say that we need to raise unemployment they should just come out and admit that they just want some Australians to die to keep the wealth ponzi going.

    www.abc.net.au What if soaring rates don't kill inflation? Central banks may be about to blow up the economy

    We could be wreaking havoc trying to reach the 2 to 3 per cent inflation target, writes business editor Ian Verrender. What if it's a goal that is unattainable?

    I’m curious how long central bankers will let this go on for before they begrudgingly admit that they got it wrong. For the sake of those already made homeless, ill or dead from the current inflation I hope the central banks aren’t wrong so that their suffering wasn’t for nothing.

    www.abc.net.au Economists want more unemployment. But do they care how the jobless will be treated?

    According to some economists, we need more unemployment in Australia to get inflation under control. But, Gareth Hutchens asks, do they know how jobseekers are treated?
