Hasans phone call came from her sister, who hurriedly described what was happening as she hid in her home in Sinjar. Her sister eventually escaped from the town and fled to Kurdistan. Pari Ibrahim, 27, a Yazidi who moved from Iraq to the Netherlands with her family in 1991, received a similar phone call. My family members [in Sinjar] said, ISIS has entered Sinjar they are killing the men, they are taking the women and girls, she recalls. The ISIS attack on Sinjar resulted in the deaths of at least 5,000 Yazidi men . Yet it is the Yazidi women and girls who have suffered the brunt of ISISs terror campaign. An estimated 7,000 women and girls were auctioned off to ISIS fighters, and most are still being held by the group. Accounts by those who have escaped, been rescued or been released reveal that, as the groups captives, women and girls some as young as nine are tortured and used as sexual slaves.

The last thing they want to do is take a massive financial risk that might result in even more debt. A lack of encouragement for millennials to take the plunge compounds this effect. Can we recover? Were not approaching crisis-level figures yet. But there is a shortage of the entrepreneurial motivation and conditions that small businesses need to develop. Theres no quick fix that can address all these factors at once. But we can shop at more small and local businesses, to encourage their economic development. We can improve our education system to not only encourage more entrepreneurship and risk-taking, but avoid long-standing college debt that prohibits new business development. We can also avoid reserving our investment capital only for the surest bets, taking risks ourselves to support the worthy risks of others.

And it gets better (or worse, depending your point of view): Ishtar “ was particularly worshipped in the Upper Mesopotamian kingdom of Assyria (modern northern Iraq, north east Syria and south east Turkey). ” That would be the territory that is currently ruled by … you guessed it … ISIS. So to sum up: It seems the ISISraelis are continuing their heroic efforts to convince the West that “radical Islam” (i.e. the Palestinians that Israel is exterminating) are a threat to all of civilization. Maybe it’s time to set off the chimes in Big Ben’s belltower and wake the world up to the truth? UPDATES: Here are some of the questions being raised about this suspected false flag: *Is it just a coincidence that massiveterror drills’ were held on the River Thames a few days before this event ? *Is the guy in the kippah taking selfies in front of the “carnage” another Dancing Israeli getting souvenir photos of an operation he participated in?

Image Source . The attacker appears to be a middle-aged Asian man. No manifesto of his intention has surfaced as of yet—a crucial piece of evidence needed to support the authorities claim of terrorism. Here is an image of what authorities believe occurred during the attack. The attacker was driving an SUV that hit 12 pedestrians in the initial event. One witness reported: We were taking photos of Big Ben and we saw all the people running towards us, and then there was an Asian guy in about his 40s carrying a knife about seven or eight inches long. And then there were three shots fired, and then we crossed the road and looked over. The man was on the floor with blood. He had a lightweight jacket on, dark trousers and a shirt. He was running through those gates, towards Parliament, and the police were chasing him. More reports compiled via Zero Hedge : Mail journalist Quentin Letts saw the incident out of the window of a Commons office.

This is done in nearly every analog-to-digital converter one way or another. Because the negative frequencies interfere with our desired signal, the cutoff frequency of the filter needs to be set at 1/2 of the sampling frequency, or at the top of the desired bandwidth, whichever's lower. When recording CDs, for instance, they are passed through a steep 20-22 Khz cutoff filter before being sampled at 44.1 kHz. A potentially contaminating 30.1 kHz signal, which would alias down to -14 kHz after sampling, is simply filtered away before it ever hits the ADC. When you sample using an ADC, consider what's going on at multiples of the sampling frequency. Do you need a lowpass filter? We suspect you might. Bandpass Sampling Finally, here is the super-power side of aliasing. Just as you can count the number of spokes on the stopped wagon wheel in Stagecoach, you can also get information about frequencies that are higher than the sampling rate by taking advantage of aliasing.

SEE ALSO: Ask This Astronaut Anything As He Flies in Space One day, as he was looking at radiation levels on the space station, the A-level student noticed an anomaly. Encouraged by his teacher, he emailed scientists at NASA who appreciated the correction and even invited him to help analyse the problem. The research was part of the TimPix project from the Institute for Research in Schools (IRIS) . The project takes data from a little chip on the space station that records the radiation levels.

Before long enemies will start to appear, and these are dispatched with the right analogue stick, and trigger presses that gain added damage bonuses if timed correctly with the beat of the levels song. Built in Unity, its an impressive release from the two-man team at Mad Fellows Games, and well worth keeping an eye on for later in the year. Ruiner Ruiner is not the kind of game youd expect from a team of ex-Witcher developers, but the isometric brawler is a fine addition to this years crop of indie games. Set in a cyber-punk future, the anime-inspired game sees you punch, shoot, and generally fight your way through a series of cell-shaded urban levels. The whole game is fast and frantic, and like a good twin-stick shooter challenges you to take risks to keep yourself safe while taking down as many of your enemies as possible.

Fitness The former Olympian on his 50at50 challenge and his love of open-water swimming Fitness Nick Harris-Fry Swimming 23 Mar 2017 facebook twitter pinterest Advertisement A century ago you’d be forgiven for thinking you could probably skimp on the exercise once you hit 50. In fact life expectancy for English men didn't squeak above 50 until 1910. Nowadays, however, people live to 80 with NHS-crippling regularity, so it’s a good idea to stay active and healthy when you reach your half-century. One man who is certainly not slowing down at 50 is Greg Whyte, the former Olympic pentathlete and all-round physical activity expert. In fact, Whyte has stepped it up a notch with his 50at50 challenge, a series of 50 iconic swimming events he’s taking on throughout his 50th year. The week before he headed to the Caribbean for his latest swim, we spoke to Whyte about 50at50, the delights of open-water swimming and how people can keep in shape at 50.
