Slain US soldier serving his country , Parents mocked by Donald J Trump ,It's just Wrong Wrong Wrong !

Something's going on, it's not good were the words to come out from Trumps mouth, speaking about the presence of a slain US soldiers parents attendance at the annual Democratic convention last Thursday .





The parents of the purple heart and bronze star decorated serviceman, were mocked by Trump for their appearance at the Democratic convention. The US soldier who died in the call of duty in Iraq. Captain Humayun Khan was killed by a car bomb in 2004 at the age of 27.



The row has continued escalating since Thursday has called many to questioning not only Trumps republican candidacy but his legitimacy in the presidential race.

In the ABC interview broadcast on Sunday [below ], a transcript of which was released by the Trump campaign, Mr Trump was asked what sacrifices he had made.

"I work very, very hard. I've created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures," he said.

WHY SKY DIVE Jump without parachute was a KRAFT and Mondelez failure

WHY KRAFT AND MONDELEZ FAILED 

Ok you seen the story you've heard about Luke Akin right ?

Luke jumped out of a plane at 25 000 ft without a chute and landed on a net, safely back on earth ok. 

Great , now here's the thing how many of you will remember, in the future what brand it was for or the brand strident gum ? probably a fraction of you .

That's my point , chewing gum is predominantly bought by a younger demographic audience who do spend a lot more time online rather that watching TV , or newspapers .


My point the stunt by mondelez was about engaging brand profile of their confectionary in this case the gum . You tube is now the second largest search engine in the world. 



Frequented, though not entirely but a large proportion of younger demographics , like myself many a youtuber upload and re share uploaded content on youtube for their own website blog etc 

So I was surprised by Mondelez owned by even larger food giant Kraft, who own the video rights to the chute stunt, bloc…

Moment daredevil skydiver Luke Aikins becomes the first man to jump 25,000ft from a plane and land safely WITHOUT a parachute

A daredevil skydiver on Saturday became the first to jump from a height of 25,000 feet (7,620 meters) without a parachute, landing in a net in southern California, a spokesman said.

Luke Aikins, 42, who has 18,000 jumps under his belt, completed the jump in Simi Valley just west of Los Angeles, landing in a net measuring 100 feet by 100 feet (30 meters by 30 meters) in a feat broadcast on Fox.

"Aikins' leap represents the culmination of a 26-year career that will set a personal and world record for the highest jump without a parachute or wing suit," his spokesman Justin Aclin said in an email.




The Fox broadcast showed Aikins, who was wearing an oxygen mask because of the altitude, jump out of a propeller plane in a bright green outfit along with three parachutists.

He later handed the mask to one of the other jumpers in mid-air. Then, the three accompanying skydivers opened their chutes and seemed to rise up away from Aikins, as he fell alone.

Lights were set along the side o…

Clinton campaign 'hacked' , Democratic groups Russia and Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign has been hacked as part of a larger cyber attack against Democratic Party institutions, US media report.

The latest hack follows two data breaches involving the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

US officials widely believe that the cyber attacks were committed by agents working for the Russian government.
Russian Capabilty
Experts say the Russian state, via the FSB, has a well developed offensive hacking capability. It has previously been accused of deploying that capability in Estonia, Georgia and Ukraine. Russian military intelligence, GRU, is known to have similar capabilities, said Andrei Soldatov, an expert on the FSB and co-author of Red Web, a book about the Kremlin's sprawling surveillance machine.


There are also other non-state hacker groups which experts say sometimes collaborate with the security services, motivated by patriotism or money.

长征七号运载火箭 Chang Zheng 7 Chinese Rocket Re enters earth's atmosphere giving US firework display

A giant piece of a recently launched Chinese rocket fell to Earth last wednesday night (July 27), blazing a spectacular sky trail that left observers across parts of the western United States slack-jawed.

The dazzling fireball, which you can see in this awesome video by observer Matt Holt, lit up skies over Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Idaho and California about 9:40 p.m. local time Wednesday (12:40 a.m. EDT and 0440 GMT today, July 28), breaking into many bright pieces as it went.






The sky show occurred around the peak of the annual Delta Aquarid meteor shower, but it wasn't caused by bits of comet dust. Rather, experts say, the culprit Wednesday night was the second stage of China's Long March 7 rocket, which launched on its maiden flight June 25.
