American Heroes tell how they pummeled an armed terrorist

August 23, 2015

Recounting how he and two other American friends took down a gunman on a high-speed train in France, U.S. airman Spencer Stone said Sunday that he was awakened from a deep sleep before springing into action and subduing the attacker.

Stone said he turned around and saw a man holding an assault rifle and that it ‘looked like it was jammed and it wasn’t working’.

In his first remarks since Friday’s attack on an Amsterdam-to-Paris train, Stone said he and his friends took down the gunman before choking him unconscious.

Posturing is a basic element in conflict, at least at the primitive level. Many animals and even fish can make themselves look bigger and more dangerous than they actually are, and, as stated by chess grandmaster Aron Nimzowitsch, “the threat is stronger than the execution.” Lt. Colonel David Grossman adds in Killology, “In the territorial and mating battles of every species the individual who puffs itself up the biggest or makes the loudest noise is most likely to win; this process is referred to as ‘posturing.'”

European intelligence services face questions over their apparent failure to coordinate their action and stop the gunman although he had been on their radar for several years as a serious threat, write David Chazan in Paris and James Badcock in Algeciras.
He was placed on the Schengen register, in which information about “persons of interest” is shared by 27 European countries, as early as 2012, according to the Spanish newspaper El Pais.
There are discrepancies between French and Spanish accounts of his movements in the years leading up to the attempted attack, as leaked to the media by intelligence sources in the two countries. French and Spanish security services are reportedly engaged in a row over who may be to blame.
In France, Ayoub el-Khazzani was classified as a grade 3 threat, meaning he was considered to pose a serious risk. Those identified as a threat to national security are graded on a scale from 1, the highest risk, to 16, the lowest.

‘Compton’ album sales dropping like bystanders at a drive by

August 23, 2015

“Compton” is the first new album by Dr. Dre in 16 years. Last week, tied to the release of “Straight Outta Compton,” the hit movie, the album sold 286,000 copies and finished second on the charts to country’s Luke Bryan.

But this last week, “Compton” collapsed. It dropped 85% in sales. That may be the biggest drop ever, beating even Madonna’s famous fall from grace a few years ago with “MDNA.” Compton sold just 42,732 copies.

Danger: A few Manly Men and Women still on the loose

August 23, 2015

In 1987, I published the first book in the field of Human Paleopsychology. This approach is premised on two basic assumptions: First, human beings have an ancient and rich evolutionary history, and second, that ancient history is thoroughly involved in everything we feel, think and do personally, politically and morally. According to famed neuroscientist Paul MacLean, the human brain is composed of a primeval reptilian segment at the lowest level, a mammalian segment at mid-level and a human or neocortical segment at the highest level. I added the notion that we human beings are constantly “regressing down” or “progressing up” MacLean’s triune brain system in the natural flow of behavior.

‘Victor Frankenstein’ movie trailer

August 23, 2015

The legend of Frankenstein gets an update in the first look at the new trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Victor Frankenstein.

Told through the perspective of the assistant Igor (Daniel Radcliffe), the film follows young medical student Viktor von Frankenstein (James McAvoy) as he attempts to bring the iconic monster to life.

As can be seen in the trailer, the film takes a more comic, Young Frankenstein-like approach to the Mary Shelley classic. McAvoy and Radcliffe’s characters share a kind of “bromance” as they work on their experiments.
