A scientist behind the black hole pic is a cute gay nerd

A bunch of straight guys were pissed that a woman was getting some credit for this, and they were quick to highlight Andrew Chael as the guy who did everything. This caused Chael to defend his colleague and state his own sexuality, saying, "While I appreciate the congratulations on a result that I worked hard on for years, if you are congratulating me because you have a sexist vendetta against Katie, please go away and reconsider your priorities in life."

When internet trolls tried to detract from Katherine Bouman's rise to stardom for her part in creating the first image of a black hole, her colleague quickly shut them down.

Bouman, 29, created one of the algorithms that led to the groundbreaking black hole image. She also helped develop the imaging and verification process.

However, a nasty corner of the internet tried to downplay Bouman's role and started spreading posts claiming that Andrew Chael -- a white male scientist -- was actually the mastermind behind the project. The misleading posts, on Reddit and Twitter, said Chael alone had authored "850,000 of the 900,000 lines of code that were written in the historic black-hole image algorithm!"

However, the effort quickly backfired.

Though it may have been nice to receive more recognition, Chael immediately took to Twitter to explain that the online trolls had exaggerated his contributions, and he defended Bouman's work. In addition, Chael said that as an openly gay man, he is also an underrepresented demographic in STEM.

"Once I realized that many online commentators were using my name and image to advance a sexist agenda to claim that Katie's leading role in our global team was invented, I felt I should say something to make it clear I rejected that view," Chael told CNN.

"I did not write "850,000 lines of code" -- many of those "lines" tracked by github are in model files," Chael said in his tweets. "There are about 68,000 lines in the current software, and I don't care how many of those I personally authored."

The Harvard University graduate student also criticized the sexist attacks against his colleague, especially when science is such a male-dominated field.

"While I appreciate the congratulations on a result that I worked hard on for years, if you are congratulating me because you have a sexist vendetta against Katie, please go away and reconsider your priorities in life," Chael wrote.

Chael wrote the code for one of three scripted code pipelines that scientists used to transform telescope data into a coherent image.

He hopes Bouman's story inspires more women to seek out opportunities in radio astronomy. "I still recognize that we as a collaboration and a field have work to do to build that representation ourselves," Chael told CNN.

Though Bouman has received a lot of attention, she has maintained that the black hole image was the product of teamwork.

"No one of us could've done it alone," Bouman told CNN. "It came together because of lots of different people from many backgrounds."

The Event Horizon Telescope project was composed of an international team of more than 200 researchers.

by Anonymousreply 3004/12/2019

r28 r29 speaking of showers, did you know that Ellis Island forced immigrants to take showers, while their clothes were sprayed with Zyklon B?

This was standard practice, because of the lice that carried the Typhus epidemic.

The Germans used this same de-lousing process to fight Typhus which was particularly prevalent in the Orthodox Jewish community because they refused to shower and shave their beards.

Jews were getting thousands of innocent people killed, by spreading Typhus in their dirty beards.

Just like today in New York, Jews are spreading measles to everybody around them, because they refuse to take vaccine shots.

Most of the Jews who died in WW2 died from Typhus, which got especially bad in the camps after the US bombed all the railroad tracks preventing delivery of food and medicine to the camps.

History is written by the winners, and every so-called Nazi death camp was either a work camp or a transit station, like Treblinka.

Did you know that they explain away the complete absence of evidence for 900,000 Holocausted Jews at Treblinka by claiming that the Nazis buried the bodies in a big hole, and then dug them all up, and burned all the bodies?

Except there isn't even a hole at Treblinka, and plenty of Jews who made it to Russia explained that Treblinka was nothing more than a transit stop and de-lousing station.

And at Auschwitz, at first they said 4 million Jews were killed there, then they reduced it to 1 million, but refused to revise the 6 million total number. And even that 1 million at Auschwitz was totally bogus.

History is written by the winners, and if the Germans had won WWII, they might have chosen to declare that Ellis Island was a death camp, where innocent people were gassed with (non-lethal, by the way) Zyklon B.

by Anonymousreply 3804/12/2019

r34 thanks for reading it. You can read about it in a lot of places, but (((Google))), (((Youtube))) and other (((media))) companies do a very good job of scrubbing all Holocaust revision, for self-serving reasons.

All over the world, the Holocaust is the one historical event that people are not allowed to research skeptically. Gee, I wonder why?

You can start here, with this breakdown of a recent British Documentary about Treblinka, where they told a bunch of lies to promote the Treblinka narrative that 900,000 Jews were killed there.

Other things you can research: Ann Frank's father was a Nazi war profiteer, and he heavily "edited" the Ann Frank Diary. He is now listed as the co-author. That was a propaganda project designed to make Ann look very very wise beyond her years, and to promote the Zionist cause of guilting the world into giving the Jews somebody else's land in Palestine.

Also, Elie Weisel was a total fraud, and his classic book "Night" was originally listed as fiction, because it was. Only as the decades went on did Weisel start pretending that it was a true story. Weisel never went to Auschwitz, like he claimed in the book. He never had an Auschwitz tattoo, he's not listed in any of the documentation, and he was elsewhere at the time he claims he was at Auschwitz. Also, Weisel claimed that he saw huge piles of dead bodies just burning in big piles, but this is physically impossible because the human body is 90% water. That's why they need to be burned in crematoriums, which takes 4 hours per body.

Look into any aspect of the Holocaust, and there are huge problems with the narrative.

And dozens of Jews have been busted writing Holocaust survival books (like Elie Weisel, who was never publicly called out) that ended up being totally fake.

Every Jew who claimed to be at one of the camps was given millions of dollars in reparations, and German soldiers were tortured into telling the Soviets anything they wanted to hear. If the Jews wanted to hear 100 million Jews, the German soldiers would have "confessed" to every bit of it.

In reality, less than 1.5 million Jews died in WWII, and there was no mass extermination project.

by Anonymousreply 4004/12/2019

Look at how the Auschwitz museum changed the death count from 4 million to 1 million, without the Holocaust total death count changing by even ONE person. The 6 million number comes from Jewish scripture, which predicted that Jews would return to Israel "minus six million".

If you want to know why Jews refuse to allow any honest examination whatsoever of their Holocaust story, it's because it's literally religion. And so is Ann Frank's Diary, even though it was mostly written by her father and hired hands. Saint Ann Frank is a Jewish religious figure now. And she died of Typhus, not being Holocausted.

by Anonymousreply 4104/12/2019

It's funny that after Oprah's Book Club promoted "Million Little Pieces", which turned out to be a fraud, Oprah's next book was "Six Million Little Pieces", otherwise known as "Night" by Elie Weisel. Another total hoax.

Weisel was a propaganda journalist for the media arm of Irgun, the Jewish terrorist organization that became the Israeli Army.

Weisel even stole his name from somebody who was a prisoner at Dachau or something. Because the guy had the same last name as Weisel.

Auschwitz Survivor Claims Elie Wiesel Was an Impostor

Years later, in 1986, Miklos was contacted by the Swedish journal Sydsvenska Dagbladet in Malmo and invited to meet "an old friend" named Elie Wiesel... As Miklos answered that he doesn`t know anyone with this name, he was told Elie Wiesel was the same person Miklos knew in the Nazi camps under the name Lazar Wiesel and with the inmate number A-7713...

gruner.jpeg Miklos still remembered that number and he was therefore convinced at that point that he was going to meet his old friend Lazar. He happily accepted the invitation to meet him at the Savoj Hotel in Stockholm on December 14, 1986. Miklos recalls:

" I was very happy at the idea of meeting Lazar but when I confronted the so-called "Eli Wiesel", I was stunned to see a man I didn`t recognize at all, who didn`t even speak Hungarian or Yiddish and instead he was speaking English in a strong French accent. Therefore our meeting was over in about ten minutes. As a goodbye gift, the man gave me his book entitled "Night" of which he claimed to be the author. I accepted the book I didn`t know at that time but told everyone there that this man was not the person he pretended to be!"

Miklos recalls that during this strange meeting, Elie Wiesel refused to show him the tattooed number on his arm, saying he didn`t want to exhibit his body. Miklos adds that Elie Wiesel showed his tattooed number afterward to an Israeli journalist who Miklos met and this journalist told Miklos that he didn`t have time to identify the number but... was certain it wasn`t a tattoo. Miklos says:

After that meeting with Elie Wiesel, I spent twenty years of research and found out that the man calling himself Elie Wiesel has never been in a Nazi concentration camp since he was not included in any official list of detainees.

R41 thank you. I do believe the Holocaust existed because of the photos and films I’ve seen. I’ve also seen interviews with people. I also see how facts and figures can be misrepresented on both sides. Is the formal position of this to say that Jews were not exterminated in WW2 and that there was NO holocaust or is this to say that historical facts and figures in some accounts are not entirely accurate?

by Anonymousreply 5204/15/2019

r47 If a million Jews died from Typhus, starvation, and as Communist revolutionaries, that wasn't a Holocaust.

You saw British, American, and Soviet footage of the camps after the war. The Allies bombed all roads and railroads leading to the camps, so the Germans were not able to ship food and medicine to the camps. Plus all of Germany was half-starving at that point, so they weren't about to starve their own people to feed Jewish nationalists/communists who were sworn enemies of Germany.

And did you know that top Hollywood directors were brought in to film the camps and the "Holocaust" footage? Billy Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock, and others were brought in to exaggerate and create out of thin air the whole narrative of the Holocaust.

In fact, the entire world didn't even believe the media when they said that 6 million Jews were systematically killed in a "Holocaust", because the whole world knew it was B.S. propaganda from the winners of the war.

It wasn't until 30-40 years later that the media started trying to convince people that it really did happen. Just like with Elie Weisel's book "Night". It was always listed as fiction until 30-40 years passed, and the media and Elie himself started pretending that it was a true story.

So you saw footage of bodies being bull-dozed into mass graves, but that was British film and British tractors, after the war. We were told that was Evil German Nazi bull-dozers and mass graves.

They lied in 6 million different ways. They lied and told us the Nazis even made human soap and shrunken heads and human skin lampshades, and it was all lies. They even edited photos to depict dark smoke rising from the chimneys, and told us it was human ash being burned in the "Holocaust".

Look into it. Look into any aspect of the "Holocaust" narrative, and see if the skeptics are convincing.

You see a big pile of shoes, and you are told that those are the shoes of people who were killed immediately after. In reality camp inmates were given new shoes, and their old shoes were discarded along with their clothing because of the Typhus-carrying lice.

“The Wolf of Wall Street” — the Movie

Begin with this howler: As the diminutive Jewish stock fraudster Jordan Belfort, director Martin Scorsese chose none other than six-foot-tall, (sometimes) blond-haired Leonardo DiCaprio. This has to go down as one of the most egregious miscastings in Hollywood history.

Why did it happen?

I will argue that this is a classic case of Hollywood deceiving the public, and I have plenty of evidence for this.

In the film, at exactly five minutes into the story — just after DiCaprio’s character has snorted cocaine with a hundred dollar bill and done a little trick by making us think “this shit” (cocaine) will make you invincible, when it fact he means the money he is using as a straw — he launches into a speech as he enters his busy trading floor:

See, money doesn’t just buy you a better life — better food, better cars, better pussy — it also makes you a better person. You can give generously to the church, or political party of your choice. Save the fuckin’ spotted owl with money. [emphasis added]

“To the church.” In his memoir from which the film springs, Belfort is refreshingly forthright that he is Jewish — and that all but one close associate is Jewish — as are the majority of his traders. Now in the film — which “happened” to open on Christmas Day 2013 — we are informed that rich people like DiCaprio’s Belfort can give “to the church,” not synagogue or ADL or Jewish think tank. It is this kind of subtle deception that would, in my view, prevent the vast, vast majority of Gentile viewers from understanding that these financial criminals are Jewish.
