1…………> Qubits: A Journey Into Madness
In order to crunch more and more data in the mad world of social media and government bureaucracy, quantum physicists have achieved entanglement record: A controlled multi-particle entanglement in a system of 20 quantum bits, which is the largest entangled quantum register of individually controllable systems to date.
“We generate and characterize entangled states of a register of 20 individually controlled qubits, where each qubit is encoded into the electronic state of a trapped atomic ion,” said the research team, led by Ben Lanyon and Rainer Blatt at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
The research team was able to detect genuine multi-particle entanglement between all neighboring groups of three, four and five quantum bits.
“The particles are first entangled in pairs,” Lanyon was quoted as saying in a news release. “With the methods developed by our colleagues in Vienna and Ulm, we can then prove the further spread of the entanglement to all neighboring particle triplets, most quadruplets and a few quintuplets.”
What is qubit? In ancient computer science basic Boolean algebra, bit could 0 or 1, like a switch could be on or off: in quantum physics, qubit could have many more states, thus allowing large amounts of information to be coded.
2…………> Assassination Central: Jalisco, MX
Jalisco, Mexico mayor Jilotlán de Los Dolores was ambushed and killed in the state’s Tierra Caliente region, thus becoming the 73rd to be assassinated during the current federal administration of President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Juan Carlos Andrade Magaña, 47, was on the campaign trail, seeking another term under the flag of the Citizens’ Movement (MC) party when he was ambushed by armed civilians near the Michoacán border.
Andrade became No. 80 assassination victim, with the 79th was 25-year-old Maribel Barajas, a Green Party candidate for state deputy in Múgica, Michoacán, also in Tierra Caliente, who was stabbed to death near Morelia, the state capital.
3…………> Cyber Attack: From Russia With Scorn
The United States, Britain, and Australia accuse Russian Government-backed hackers of infecting computer routers around the world in a cyber-espionage campaign targeting government agencies, businesses, and critical infrastructure operators, with up to 400 Australian businesses that may have been targeted, by suspected state-sponsored hacking attacks that have affected millions of machines worldwide, according to the Defence Minister Marise Payne.
4…………> Trump’s ICE Broom: New York
ICE officers arrested 225 illegals during a 6-day period, ending Apr. 14 in New York City, Long Island and the Hudson Valley for violating U.S. immigration laws, with more than 180 were determined to be convicted criminals or had criminal charges pending, more than 80 had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed from the United States and returned illegally. Several had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as child sex crimes, weapons charges, and assault, or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors.
“ICE continues to face significant obstacles with policies created by local officials which hinder cooperation between ICE and local law enforcement. Yet, with the tireless efforts of the men and women of ICE, this operation was a great success,” said Thomas R. Decker, field office director for ERO New York. “The fact is that a so-called “sanctuary city” does not only provide refuge to those who are here against immigration law but also provides protections for criminal aliens who prey on the people in their own communities by committing crimes at all levels. ICE is committed to enforcing the immigration laws set forth by Congress with integrity, despite the push-back and rhetoric within the city they serve.”
More than 60 individuals arrested during this operation were previously released from local law enforcement on an active detainer. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) places detainers on individuals who have been arrested on local criminal charges and who are suspected of being deportable so that ICE can take custody of that person when he or she is released from local custody. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.
5…………>Market Report 04/17/2018, sell stop 24450, CG(9042), 11/22/17
Current position long at 24,000, sell stop at 24300 was triggered for a gain of 300 DIA points and closed. New short position established at 24,250, cover short stop at 24300 for a loss of 50 DIA points was triggered, after a market reversal due to the subsiding of fears of war between US and Russia. New position long 24100, sell stop 24450 for a gain of 350 points.
In anticipation of missile strikes against Syria market slid nearly 300 points, triggering sell stop at 24400 for a gain of 50 points, and initiating a sell short position at 24,000 with a cover short stop at 24050 for a loss of 50 DIA points.
After a sharp reversal following President Trump “mission accomplished” announcement in Syria, market opened on a gap, forcing short covering, triggering stop at 24050, leading to a loss of 50 points. New position long 24100, sell stop 24450 for a paper gain of 350 DIA points.
Stock market old timers have said that “you buy the rumor, and sell the news”, and that is exactly what is happening right now, with the news that President Trump is about to start a metal tariff war, slapping 25% surcharge on steel and 10% on aluminum. DIA resistance is in the 27,000 area, with supports at 24135, 21354 and 18900 level, US dollar in a downtrend, resistance at 1.003319 CHF, support at .92 and 0.9: Gold in an uptrend, watch break resistance of 1377 to be taken soon. The massive Fed balance sheet contraction will result in a $600 billion dollars being dumped on the credit markets each quarter, a leftover of the horrendous $4.3 trillion money printing of Obama’s septic tank that will surely exert a severe pressure on stocks and financial assets.
We warned long ago that an organized attempt to remove President Trump from office is underway, and if this activity is not curtailed soon, the market will open on gap below 20,000 with next stop 17300 and 11800 support levels.
Stocks were up 214 to 24786, DJ futures at 50
Gold down to 1346.7 and USD/CHF up at 0.97 despite President Trump setting tariffs on Chinese products. Translation? As the dollar goes down, we have to wait and see if the new Fed Chair Jerome Powell will continue pressuring gold and the Eurasian block with it down below $1000/oz in an economic WW3. Watch cover short stop at 24,450. We have to wait and see if new Fed chair Powell will attempt to destroy Eurasian block by sending gold prices below 1000, despite the fact both Russia and China have been buying their whole gold production in local gold backed currency instead of money printing machines. In other words, US has lost controls of the precious metals complex, and with Trump’s infrastructure and tax cut campaign the National debt will soon be at, or over 30 trillion dollars, since D.C. swamp alligators have no intention dropping their pet projects.
