Israel Extends Firearms Permit To 500,000 People

Via Mondoweiss

The country of Israel has extended a whopping 500,000 firearms permits to Israelis.

This extension really covers people who are infantry veterans. This means they have had to serve in the armed forces in a specific trade before being eligible. It also covers police officers who have had similar training, military officers with the rank of first lieutenants or higher and non-commissioned officers with the rank of first sergeant or higher.

The permits have been extended because of the want for a better response time towards terrorist incidents.

The permit extension was first announced Monday by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan.

Permit holders must be in good psychological health and they have to renew their permits every three years. Alongside those regulations, they must also be twenty-one years of age.

Currently, it has been reported that 150,000 Israelis already have gun licenses. These people are most likely those who live in settlements or border areas. It also includes people who work in security who might need the firearm for self-defense purposes. The number of military personnel who have firearms is likely to increase this number since it does not include them.

Canadian Radio Telescope Picks Up Radio Bursts From Outside Our Galaxy

Via CHIME Dunlap Institute

A Canadian radio telescope located in British Columbia (B.C) has been reported to have captured some radio bursts from outside of our Milky Way galaxy.

The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment, also known as CHIME has been searching for these sort of bursts for around a week and actually came across them. It's something that many people would not have expected given the vast distances in space.

The type of radio wave that was picked up is an FRB (Fast Radio Burst). These really only last for milliseconds.

Since CHIME is fairly large, it might be able to pick up a lot more of these FRBs, which means that we might be able to learn more about the great beyond.


However, while it may pick more FRBs up, we'll still need to figure out if they're useful messages or just random bursts that have been let out through space. Some people think that it's extraterrestrials that have sent out these FRBs, others say it's a black hole or just a neutron star. The fact is, we currently don't know the exact origin of these radio bursts as of yet.

That doesn't mean that something like CHIME isn't going to help research into the world of space. It's actually going to help scientists out a lot, especially if it can provide many FRBs. In short, it will basically allow more evidence and research to go into several different FRBs, which in turn would simply allow for more knowledge to be gained from them.

CHIME was first turned on last year and began collecting radio waves for scientific research and understanding. Apparently, the functionality to capture FRBs was added after the initial starting time of the telescope.
