Ben joined us for the promised discussion on Levity.
We also briefly went over the Baal Arches, potential of a false history, the earth tilt and more.
The Utah County Sheriff's Office arrested a Fountain Green man Monday afternoon on suspicion of multiple counts of child sex abuse.
The arrest of Sterling Allan, 52, comes after more than a year of investigation. According to police reports, a special agent with the FBI received a tip in January 2015 that Allan was involved in the sexual exploitation of children. Internet searches reportedly revealed several online videos in which Allan admitted he was a pedophile and had committed sex offenses against children.
In January 2016, agents interviewed Allan in Fountain Green, and he reportedly admitted to molesting children when he lived in Eagle Mountain, from where he moved six years ago. Allan also reportedly admitted he sexually assaulted a minor in the summer of 2014.
During an online post he made earlier this month, Allan reportedly stated he planned to travel to Russia, which does not have an extradition treaty with the United States.
Allan was booked into the Utah County Jail on suspicion of two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony; four counts of sodomy on a child, a first-degree felony; and 41 misdemeanor counts of lewdness involving a child.
The first quantum communications satellite developed by China is expected to launch in July of this year. The Beijing– Shanghai quantum private communications line will also be opened in the second half of this year, according to Pan Jianwei, academic at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, during an interview with China Youth Daily. According to Pan, this milestone means that a quantum communications network will be formed, and that30 years of research on quantum information will be finally put to use. Pan said that quantum communication between the satellite and the ground will be achieved for the first time anywhere in the world. In recent years, quantum communications is considered to be supportive research for next-generation communication technology because of its transmission efficiency and absolute security. Pan said that, as quantum technology is indivisible and cannot be cloned, it may be implemented as an information carrier for the distribution of sensitive information, thereby guaranteeing the secure transmission of important content. Quantum communications research has become a focus and frontier of global research in physics. China started developing its quantum satellite in2011, and launched the quantum optical fiber communication network project, the Beijing– Shanghai line, in2013. The Beijing– Shanghai quantum private communications line will cover a total length of over2,000 kilometers, connecting a network of numerous cities including Beijing, Jinan, Hefei and Shanghai. It will be the world' s first wide-area optic fiber quantum private network. According to Pan, the assembly of the quantum satellite has already been completed. The satellite has passed electrical measurement and thermal balance testing, and is currently undergoing mechanical and magnetic testing in Shanghai’ s Small Satellite Engineering Center. " With further development, quantum communications should benefit millions of households in the near future," Pan said, adding: " I hope that within another10 years of hard work, online transfers and payments can be guaranteed through quantum communication for every consumer."
