The Top Line

B-52′s in Asia: Two unarmed U.S. B-52 bombers flew over disputed islands in the East China Sea, ignoring a new airspace defense zone that China declared on Saturday with warnings that it would take “defensive emergency measures” if the zone was breached. China’s defense ministry said it monitored the flights without mentioning any intentions to retaliate.  It is quite possible that China might have overplayed its position by “angering not just Japan and the U.S., but South Korea and Taiwan—both of which have air-defense zones that overlap China’s”.    Indeed, the airspace defense zone may be a key gambit in China’s A2/AD strategy.

Memory Manipulation: Research is being done on mice to alter memories, with several studies having found chemical compounds that can be used to subdue or even delete memories, and in one MIT study, create a false memory.  While the concept of manipulating memories raises some serious ethical issues, applications for those who suffer from PTSD and addiction could help to drive this research.

Continuing NSA Fallout: Microsoft announced that it is considering new encryption initiatives for its internet traffic amid fears that the National Security Agency has compromised its global communications links. This comes as Google announced earlier in the week that it tightened encryption of traffic flowing between its data centers, as it looks to block alleged interception.    The two companies are also likely worried about the influx of competition into digital communications as startups focus on security and anonymity concerns.
