Mike Pompeo Constructs Iran Narrative Moving US Toward War Footing | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC



Susan Rice will be here live in just a moment I'm very much looking forward to talking with her about that also actually looking forward to talking with her about this sort of surprise pronouncement today from the Trump administration from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Iran all of a sudden is a dramatically more dangerous threat to the United States than it has ever been before and and the United States is entering into some new sort of heightened oppositional status when it comes to Iran which has a lot of people worried that Mike Pompeo is trying to lay the groundwork for the u.s. waging war on Iran today you may have seen the dramatic pictures of two oil tankers that were the subject of some kind of attack in the Gulf of Oman without presenting any evidence to back up the assertions Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rushed immediately to a sort of highly produced news conference today at the State Department in which he pronounced that that attack on those tankers in the Gulf of Oman was definitely the work of Iran the US government has assessed that that was definitely Iran who did it now again he gave no evidence to back up this assertion and it's totally possible that it was the work of Iran but the u.s. government today jumping out basically immediately upon reports of that attack on those tankers right the US government jumping out immediately and saying they've completed their assessment they have definitively concluded it's definitely Iran that is what is making everybody have flashbacks to the run-up to the war in Iraq in 2003 what's the evidence here I should also mention part of this that's really sticking out for me while Secretary of State Pompeo was making this case against Iran today I should also mention that in addition to blaming Iran immediately for the the attack on those tankers today he also tried to put that in context saying this is part of an escalating series of events by Iran we're not just looking at instant isolation we're looking at a series of events in total and when he talked about that series of events he just rattled off a number of other recent violent incidents in the Middle East and Central Asia which he blamed on Iran one of those was a rocket attack in Iraq last month in which a rocket landed near the US Embassy might have heard about that when it happened that was May 19th for the reports of that year there has never ever been a public State Department announcement or any formal assessment that it was Iran who did that but today they just listed that attack is something that Iran has to be held accountable for they've never actually said that Iran did it before today they put it on a list along with a whole bunch of other things they've never said were Iran before either including a car bomb that went off in Afghanistan on May 31st for Afghan civilians were killed for us servicemembers were wounded and again this was another thing that was on this list today of all the terrible aggressive provocative violent escalating actions that Iran has recently taken that the US must respond to but as with that rocket attack in Iraq on May 19th this may 31st car bomb and Afghanistan that they also put on the list it also got a bunch of news coverage at the time you know US service members were wounded in that attack well when that happened according to news coverage at the time the Taliban claimed responsibility for it the Taliban again today with no evidence though that was described as Iran's attack it was described as one of the things that Iran has done which the Secretary of State put in this list of quote unprovoked attacks that present a clear threat to international peace and security now it may be that they have newly arrived at evidence that allows them to attribute all of these attacks to Iran even though they've never done so before but prove it I mean in in the midst of everything else going on the Trump administration does appear to be trying to create a public justification for us moving toward a war footing with Iran and it is based on this assertion from the Trump administration that Iran is carrying out this escalating series of violent attacks all over the Middle East including targeting us and if they are trying to set that as the context as the the justification for whatever it is they want to do to Iran presumably they will have to actually show some of this evidence right they will have to show some of their work as to how they are arriving at these assertions right now all the stuff they are blaming Iran for is stuff that has either been ascribed overtly to other actors or there's been no public evidence whatsoever to assert it being attributed to Iran I mean it does clearly feel like they are trying to start something in terms of a potential war with Iran how they're trying to do it I think is setting off alarm bells left right and center and I think across the partisan spectrum for reasons that aren't just because of – that what happened in 2003 but because they're even perhaps being more reckless in terms of the way they're presenting this public information not even trying to prove what it is they're asserting hey there I'm Chris Hayes from MSNBC thanks for watching MSNBC on YouTube if you want to keep up to date with the videos we're putting out you can click subscribe just below me or click over

Free Update Content with TwoDollarsTwenty | Cities: Skylines Industries Tutorial Part 7



g'day guys tell us 20 here and welcome back to City skylines industries this is gonna be the last tutorial from me and I'm gonna spend it looking at the new content that comes with the free updates I'm gonna start by checking out the new toll booths which will raise extra revenue for the city however will also create extra congestion on the roads so to avoid this only replacing them around the outskirts of the city you can find the toll booths in the road section under the very own tab and there's four to choose from I'm placing mine on a three lane highway so I'm gonna choose the four lane toll booth and place two going in either direction once I've done that I'm gonna waste my money placing down some trees and then I can actually change the price of the tickets when I click on the building and use the slider to decrease or increase the ticket price another cool feature with the free update is the ability to make buildings historical you can make a building historical by clicking on it and then clicking the historical building button and this would mean the building will continue to level up by won't actually change its appearance I'm gonna do this around my downtown to keep the skyline looking quite prominent and the rest of the buildings much lower down and I'm also gonna do this for buildings that I just like the look of and when I keep that look in the city the last feature I want to talk about is something that is quite interesting and allies within the map theme editor and this feature allows you to create custom name lists for your map theme the really cool thing about this is you can really customize the names of pretty much anything that spawns in your city ranging from industrial buildings to commercial buildings to people to districts you really have a lot of freedom making these names and I think it's going to make for some really interesting and unique map themes down the track but guys that is it for these tutorials I really had a lot of fun exploring the new industries DLC and I just want to say big thanks to Paradox Interactive for asking me to collaborate with them I hope these tutorials are been useful and I look forward to seeing your creations in the near future I'll see you later

A New Kind of Industrial Company | GE



this really is an exciting time for GE we're returning cash to investors growing our earnings every year changing the mix of our earnings changing the portfolio and really positioning GE for a new generation of growth and profitability and shareholder returns last year we did three strategic moves the Alstom acquisition and the synchrony spend selling the appliance business really all along the lines of both accelerating and really driving forward the change in the portfolio to being much more industrial a smaller GE Capital and really by 2016 establishing 75% of our earnings coming from the industrial businesses Enterprise capabilities is the G store because each business makes a contribution to the store and all the businesses can take away from the store oil and gas ads localization in places like Africa but then the transportation business can capitalize on that localization to improve their business in the future healthcare adds imaging to the G store and then the oil and gas business can take imaging from the G store into pipeline inspection and technologies like that I always talk about GE as a company that innovates its scale last year just was the culmination of a lot of key technologies that are really game changers for the company going forward the H turbine is the most efficient largest gas turbine in the world the leap jet engine is a narrow-body jet engine that has almost 80 percent market share the Tier four locomotive has launched two years ahead of competition our products today are combination of physics and analytics what we call the industrial internet we've made big investments to capture these analytics and turn them into meaningful output for our customers this is going to help the company grow faster it's going to make us even closer to our customers and we think position as well for the future we've really tried to change the culture change the way we interact with each other change the way we think about accountability and things like that and we call it the culture of simplification and it's really about lean management less is more do fewer things better more focus putting everything on the clock from a standpoint of speed matters reorienting the whole company towards winning in the marketplace and really digitizing GE to make it faster and smarter as time goes on if you think about the company in 2014 2015 even 2016 you're just going to see all the elements of this strategy come into focus and come into place and a company that's growing EPS returning cash to shareholders changing the mix of the portfolio and executing well over the next two years investors are going to get 40 billion dollars of cash back out of the company we think this is a great time to be a G investor

Advanced Turboprop: The First Engine With Extensive Additive Manufacturing – In The Wild – GE



hey I'm Ali hey Ali I'm Gordie nice to meet you what is happening yeah this is essentially the Burning Man for private pilots okay so all the plane nerds are here absolutely right people everywhere yeah I can't wait to see some stuff come back yeah go this way crazy I have never seen anything that's right this scope I mean how many planes are here at its time so there's 10,000 planes here spanning everything from classic planes to true experimental aircraft to more traditional aircraft there's an f-86 that's like a Korean war-era dad has GE engines in it Wow so over here on the Left we have a b-29 Superfortress this was actually used in World War two what aspects mechanically Archie a male yeah so we've made the turbo superchargers it's a small piece of machinery that sits in front of the reciprocating engines and it pressurizes the air so that they could fly very fast at high altitude to get over target do what they need to do and then get back to safety but really what I wanted to be able to do is fly high enough to be above all the fighters so this was really the first turbo machinery that GE built and after this we then started developing whole aircraft engines so this is really where we kind of all got our start so this airplane right here coming up on the right this is a thrush 510 G and it has an H 80 engine in it this is one of the engines that we make and we actually have one in the shower yep so this is the H 80 this is an engine that was originally designed back in the 1960s we've just continuously improved it over the last 50 plus years just keeps getting better and better and better and it's really a fantastic engine up to about 850 horsepower what came next after this so let's go over to the next one the next link in the chain so this is the T 700 this was designed back in the 1980s you can see it's more complex it's a more powerful engine than the last one we looked at this is really used primarily for helicopters like the Apache and the Blackhawk this is basically state-of-the-art today now let's go look at what we're gonna do tomorrow the future alright so this is the advanced turboprop and what we've done here is we've taken all of the best technology and learnings from those last two engines plus everything we've learned on the large commercial engines and we put it into this so what's different about this engine two things that really make this engine different and that's one there's extensive use of additive manufacturing ok the other thing is this has a digital engine control what is digital engine control the place that we saw on our ride basically they all have a hydro mechanical control which means the pilot has to make a decision on everything so they're independently controlling the propeller the controlling the engine so what this does is it simplifies all that into an electronic control and that frees up the pilot to think about other things so they can really fly the aircraft instead of flying the engine is this g e–'s first turboprop engine with additive manufacturing it's really the world's first engine with extensive use of additive basically we took 855 parts that would normally exist if we did it conventionally and condense that down to just twelve parts you know parts that are large complex assemblies that have to have people assemble those things together and those parts add weight they wear out and they create leakage paths which Rob's the performance and efficiency of the engine so the end result that you have here is a combination of technologies that we've really never used on small engines before what do these parts look like okay so we have some over the cabinet over here if you want to go take a look yeah so this is a few heater so fuel goes in here and engine oil goes in here and heats the fuel now this is one part this is one part that's right how many parts would you use so normally this would be about 300 300 parts that's right is it lightweight it is so it's about half the weight it would normally be so this is one part one part that is such a victory runway three six cleared for takeoff well this was an awesome awesome cool day yeah thanks for cooler is really a great day I hope you enjoyed it I guess there's a blank
