I'm on team NordVPN. They've been brilliant so far. However, anyone with Sky needs to disable Sky Shield to even access the NordVPN site as it is blocked by sky. Ridiciculous. I thought Sky Shield was to "protect" you, not stop you from protecting yourself. Sky really, really do not want you to get a VPN.

Shout out to Private Internet Access for anyone looking for a reliable and good value for money VPN
That's actually the highest result for remain in any poll conducted by a polling agency.
Edit: It says that in the article, doh
Edit 2: not quite, they say "since the referendum", I'm saying "ever conducted on the topic"
Didn't he do well?
Seriously, I'll be rewatching his episode of HIGNFY tonight, then. Ian Hislop has said that "Play Your Iraqi Cards Right" is the most tasteless thing the show has ever done. He's probably right. It's brilliant.
As per this post on /r/VPN, I would recommend the below website as a comparison tool for the different VPNs out there.
From experience IVPN, NordVPN, Private Internet Access (PIA) and Tunnelbear (my personal fave) are popular and well known options.
I think they'll pass a watered down version in a hope to minimise the negative feedback.
They have gone full retard with their announcement, banning BDSM porn, enforcing a filter, and making the filter on by default all at once. Predictably, this has caused a lot of outrage among tech savvy UK citizens and as we can see, there is already a petition to stop the filter.
But now everyone in panicking and getting angry at the current measures, I put it to you that this was their plan all along.
What the final law that actually passes will be is a watered down bill which, say, might make the filter opt-in, and only ban super violent porn. The people will think this is some sort of victory and that they've won against the government, but mostly, they will be relieved, because the initial draconian proposals are now not as bad as what was first reported.
However, the government will have done what they wanted to do in the first place: put a filter on the internet and ban porn they dislike. The people will be less outraged because the actual law will look like a watered down version of the original proposals, yet the government still get their way. And make no mistake, even if a watered down version is passed, they've still laid the ground for just as much censorship in the future.
If they attempt this, we mustn't stop protesting against it. We need to make sure this thing is scrapped for good.
In the meantime, use a VPN server in a foreign country whenever possible, especially when you watch porn. Currently I use TunnelBear and it tends to work very well.
Not only is she using SSL, she got the cert from Let's Encrypt -- they provide FREE TERRORIST PROTECTIONS and she's supporting them?
It's signed with a 2048bit RSA key?
SSLLabs give her site an "A" rating?
Terrorist! Or maybe gigantic, retarded hypocrite. Depends on your perspective, I guess.
Some VPNs are already blocked on a few ISP's default adult content filter. EE, O2, Sky, Three, Virgin Media and Vodafone's filters are blocking Private Internet Access for example.
Quite when VPNs were added to block lists I have no idea.
Edit: If I was into betting, I'd probably put money on something like this being suggested.
The book The Road To Somewhere by David Goodhart covers the 'why' of the Leave side winning, and it certainly isn't "just racism". Anyone who blindly believes that to be the case is as uneducated as the people they paint as such. I'm a Remainer, btw.
I think this is what keeps putting me off actually deciding on one. Someone suggests a VPN, one or two people agree, then someone else comes along and gives a long list of reasons of why that VPN is not safe / completely untrustworthy. And usually it's for reasons i dont quite understand.
It's all well and good explaining that it's about 'trust', but who am I to trust some vague foreign entity i've never heard of to guard my internet traffic? What is my point of reference for what is good and what is bad? My point of reference often ends up being the dialogue i am exposed too, and the dialogue is ALWAYS conflicting.
Off the top of my head I can think of people mentioning NordVPN and PIA. PIA is apparently no good because it's in a 14 eyes country. I cant remember the exact reasons for people discouraging nordvpn, but I think it was to do with unreliability of service (I could be completely wrong). There just always seems to be various number of reasons why a certain VPN is good and why it is bad, and quite frankly I feel i'm in no position to choose the priorities that make for the most convenient, practical and effective security.
I think i'll just go with PIA. The website looks nice and easy. That's what its come down too with me.
While PIA is very popular, it is based in the US, a "fourteen eyes" country. I personally use CyberGhost, but I strongly recommend visiting:
I'm using Anonine for more than 4 years. It was Sweden-based VPN but once Sweden becomes a part of 14 eyes they moved to Seychelles.
And I think it is better to use VPN on daily basis. Not because of 14 eyes, but because of assholes around, who want to steal your personal data.
Ouch but sorry they have a 200gb limit on on their plans and it's £10 extra on all plans to upgrade it to 2000gb? 200gb is a joke of a data cap for home broadband, I've not seen it that low for like 10 years. Dunno if I'm missing something or not.
And their privacy policies can be good but none of the data is encrypted more than whatever site or app you use provides so if the government wants to snoop on you it seems like they could still.
I'd rather just use my normal ISP for much cheaper with no caps and use a VPN like NordVPN on top of it, it's only like £2.50 a month and no ones checking your data with that. And if the police or government asks Nord for your data logs it wont matter because Nord doesn't save anything like that so there'd be nothing to give.
The A&A ISP does sound awesome and if you have lots of money I'd go for them but I feel like I can get a better alternative method for cheaper elsewhere.
How exactly? She was fired from the Mail and she was fired from LBC, they were presumably her best paid jobs. The rest of her work at the moment seems to revolve around going to obscure far right rallies in America and Europe, which don't seem to gather more than a few hundred people tops. Then she also has Rebel Media, which based on Alexa rankings doesn't seem to be doing all that great, even the Canary is doing better.
I honestly think she is reaching a point where she's burnt that many bridges she's going to be trouble sooner rather than later, if she isn't already.
Singular of visa is not visum, it's visa. It's derived from the verb visa, meaning having seen, which itself is a conjugation of videre. That's ignoring the fact that it's not latin any more, it's English and so it's entirely legitimate to pluralise it in an English way (see also: bus, from omnibus, which is itself a plural. It just doesn't work to try and pluralise it in a latinate way)
I'm afraid I can't answer your question though, it's just visum annoyed me.
at the risk of repeating myself every time these threads happen, the police really need to get a bunch of these Police Mobile Rave Units and just drive onto the site blasting out some really dodgy Euro House from the 90s, that would clear the crowd off, well except that one guy who took too many mushrooms and is locked in a psychedelic vortex dance-off against his new best friend, a puddle.
"Renshaw also admitted threatening to kill Det Con Victoria Henderson, who was investigating him for other matters.".
Not mentioned in the article, but on the main One O'Clock news was why DC Henderson was investigating Renshaw.

Once again these fucking Nazi bigots seem to be caught up in sex abuse of kids, yet they seem to only want to focus on the 'moose lamb' cunts that do it.
I fucking doubt we'll see any of the brigading cunts in here if this twat is convicted of this - I wonder why.....

> All Dyson products are made in the Far East
Lets not forget that when he moved production out of the UK, he claimed that Britain's failure to join the single currency forced him to do it. In reality, it was part of a strategy of reducing every possible production cost, that eventually destroyed Dyson's former reputation for quality.
So now German vacuum cleaners are outselling his Malaysian-built crap, because they don't fall apart when you look at them funny. Surprise surprise, he's suddenly a staunch eurosceptic, claiming the European vacuum cleaner rating system has been rigged by the German government. It's BS; he knows trade barriers are his only hope of reclaiming the UK market from foreign brands that are simply better.
EDIT: Reddit is being weird. First it lagged out so much that I double-posted, then I deleted the duplicate, and now I can't find this comment in my comment history... can anybody else even still read this?
Interestingly the Guardian ran a similar story... under the headline of "Research reveals huge scale of social media misogyny."
"Internationally, more than 200,000 aggressive tweets using the same words were sent to 80,000 people in the same period – and according to the study, more than half of the offenders were women." - buried halfway through the article, aaaand back to my soggy knees.
E: Little bit of research - there are about 500 million tweets per day. So over a three week period in April. There would be ~10,500 million tweets. Of which globally 200,000 aggressive tweets contain the words "slut" and/or "whore". So approximately 0.002% of all tweets.
Someone's been borrowing their definition of huge from Trump.
Good breakdown of the US ALSA spending in 2013/2014 in their annual report
** 7% - $1.9 million - Admin **
** 14% - $3.6 million - Fundraising **
** 19% - $5.1 million - Patient Services **
** 32% - $8.2 million - Education **
** 28% - $7.2 million - Research **
I was fairly cynical about the ALSA (watched a few Youtube videos citing charitable spending as low as 7-8% which just isn't true?)
I guess the question is what do people think they are donating for - just research, or patient services, or education?
Little bit misleading if you aren't technically savvy.
They aren't testing a new form of "broadband" rather they are testing new fiber technology which increases the link speed over existing fiber optic connections.
So it's not as if we will be getting 1.4Tbit connections to the home, rather than ISP's and large network users will be able to shift more bandwidth over their existing infrastructure without having to dig up and lay more fiber. To give a shit analogy it would be like doubling the capacity of a motorway by squeezing 6 lanes into 3.

I clicked on the box on the screenshot last week when also buying tickets to Birmingham.
It's undoubtedly a scam, but it's not quite as underhand as you're making out.
It's far from automatic, you have to subscribe to the "Shopper Discounts and Rewards" website, which entails filling in a signup form and giving bank details.
The site is one of many cashback websites around. I can't speak to their legality, but the Trainline affilitated one is far from unique and far from automatic.
I took one look, recognised it for what it was and cancelled straight out.
Whatever happened to the friends who you say got scammed and charged by the site, I would say, given my own experience, that they absolutely certainly weren't automatically signed up by simply clicking on the button shown in the screenshot, and they need to be shown how to look around and exercise discretion before doing whatever a website form tells them to do.
Actually this is a well established fact.
Socially conservative people are more likely to believe fake news and other studies have shown them to be more accepting of total nonsense too.
It's attributed to a combination of bias and disinclination to critical thinking. Older people in particular are more likely to be conservative and to therefore believe what they're told to.
Ok I will also answer your point seriously.
Take this article from The Guardian.
Which sites the same study as the article we're discussing in this post.
Except in The Guardian the headline is... "Research reveals huge scale of social media misogyny"
And the photo at the top of the article is a comic with men stood up and the captions "LOOK OUT! A WOMAN IS ABOUT TO HAVE HER SAY!"
Now sneaked in to the article a little later is this line... "and according to the study, more than half of the offenders were women."
But the entire article is set up as though men are abusing women online.
I'm a left wing Guardian reader. A perfectly nice and reasonable chap and so far as I know I have never sexually or verbally assaulted a woman nor have I ever treated a woman any differently based on the fact that she is a woman.
I am honestly getting so tired of this shit. You can't have the political beliefs and read the news I read without feeling like some how my mere existence is a pain to the world. I grew up on a council estate, most of the women complaining about how hard their life is and how hard it is being a woman are middle class, university educated... Some of the most privileged humans ever to have existed.
I'm just so fucking tired of this bullshit.
I highly recommend PIA, had an account for 2 years and it's just gotten better and better in that time. Can be used on mobile too and provides an adblocking option now too (although still worth using other adblockers too.)
Edit: For Netflix lovers I believe Hotspot Shield VPN is worth looking in to, used a free trial of theirs about a month ago and Netflix worked even when connected. How long that'll last I don't know, but if you'd rather the government not know you're watching Barbie Fairytopia at 3am on a Saturday night having ordered 3 large dominoes pizza with a bunch of Ben and Jerrys added on, after setting your facebook status to single.... well then it's worth the effort to find vpns that work with Netflix. :)
If you are affected by this you can fix this by using an alternative IP address for imgur.
Imgur uses a service called cloudflare to host their websites. cloudflare have a lot of IPs for their service. (see here if you are interested: https://www.cloudflare.com/ips )
anyway, by adding these two lines to your hosts file you can redirect your traffic to a working IP:
Mac/Linux users hosts file is at /etc/hosts
Windows users your hosts file is at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
(You will need to open notepad as an administrator to be able to save to this file) right click notepad -> open as administrator then use the open dialog to find the file and edit it.
Please remember to remove this once it is back up as you will not be taking advantage of cloudflares ability to load balance across the world by forcing imgur to just these IPs
AirVPN - 54 € for a year
Has plenty of servers around the world
It's the one I use and it's always been reliable with near enough the same speeds as my broadband without the vpn on
Therein lies the problem: As a unified community, Reddit can attract the President. As a platform, it allows the posting of photos of murders and animal sex. As a community, it can to fight SOPA or raise money for charity. As a platform, it provides a gathering place for men who like looking at sexualized photos of underaged teenagers, and believe that "Men's Rights" are the foremost problem facing America today
All comes down to trust at the end of the day. I've been using TunnelBear, I mailed them about snoopers two weeks ago or so. Their co-founder got back to me saying they don't keep logs so there's no browsing history etc to give the UK gov, and they're looking into the situation with their lawyers to see how/if this will affect them. I quite like them, have it on both my MacBook and iPhone.
>I don't understand this bit- could you elaborate?
not op but perhaps from here:
>We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.

>First of all: what is work? Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth's surface relatively to other such matter; second, telling other people to do so. The first kind is unpleasant and ill paid; the second is pleasant and highly paid. The second kind is capable of indefinite extension: there are not only those who give orders, but those who give advice as to what orders should be given. Usually two opposite kinds of advice are given simultaneously by two organized bodies of men; this is called politics. The skill required for this kind of work is not knowledge of the subjects as to which advice is given, but knowledge of the art of persuasive speaking and writing, i.e. of advertising.
Rees mogg senior wrote this book
“Blood in the Streets: Investment Profits in a World Gone Mad”
He wants to duck up the country for a quick buck
Let me remind you that William Rees Mogg, father of Jacob Rees Mogg, literally wrote a book called "Blood in the Streets: Investment Profits in a World Gone Mad".
On the front cover it quotes Nathan Rothschild (inb4 conspiracy theories): "The best time to buy is when blood is running on the streets".
People are going to profit off of this.
I have had nightmares with my VPN (NordVPN) because of SKY. The VPN is great but Sky blocked access even to their website, let alone logging into the VPN. Took me days to settle. I couldn't even Livechat with NordVPN because their website was blocked so had to sort it out by email. NordVPN told me to remove SKY Shield plus another couple of tweaks on the router home address. When I tried to do that online I did not have the option to disable the SKY shield (it was greyed out) and ended up doing it by phone. The minute SKY shield was disabled (as is my right) the VPN worked perfectly. So, yes, SKY are definitely blocking VPNs to the point where you can't even download the software to get it working.
Edit: I initially managed to download the software by using my Three mi-fi instead of SKY.
ethernet. I even posted about this on here two months ago.
Get the Zenmate addon for Chrome or Hola Unblocker. Enjoy Netflix from every country.
If you watch Netflix on phones, tablets etc then get a router that allows you to use a VPN from the router or put a VPN on your laptop/desktop and share your internet connection to other devices from there.
There are plenty of services out there that use end-to-end encryption too, like bitmessage (my address if you want to try it: BM-2cU9aTMZwquLe8fYcSKU39XdQMFeeCkcU6). Hell even cryptocat gets a good mention from the EFF.
Circumventing this bill is beyond trivial for even novice computer users. This bill will do nothing to keep anyone safe, it is designed merely to allow the ever-increasing growth of bulk data collection to continue.
Nice attitude, but any first year economics student knows that talk about 'competitiveness' and 'focusing on high tech' are really quite meaningless when it comes to deciding economic policy. Krugman actually wrote a very good book in 1996 called Pop Internationalism which focused on people who abuse the term competitiveness without really understanding the concept.
The idea that we could be able to focus on a particular industry and use it as the basis for our entire economy is just fantasy. Strategic Trade Theory which this idea is called has shown to have from negative to negligible effects on the economy as a whole. In addition to that, the principle of comparative advantage means that our economy will naturally focus around and export the goods that we are best at, even if other people are better at it. We actually still have a lot of manufacturing in this country for example, but because it is so productive compared to the past, it employs far fewer people. It's complicated and no amount of 'focusing on high tech' will ensure long term economic growth.
Not to argue that the British Army were acting in a directly comparable way to the IRA, nor to make any attempt whatsoever at quantifying grief, loss, or wickedness...
...But it is also officially acknowledged that the British Army and Royal Ulster Constabulary collaborated with Loyalist death-squads. Determining the number of unlawful deaths in which agents of the British state had a hand may never be possible.
Here is a report from a reputable source noting then Prime Minister David Cameron recognising such complicity in one particularly high-profile case:
You don't know how true that is. His father authored a book called Blood in the Streets: Investment Profits in a World Gone Mad
Maybe he can link up with Claire Rayner's ghost...?
My kids have just read George's Secret Key to the Universe, too. I think I'll have to get them the set.
They have other ones, like Advertising Manager... which is also voluntary and therefore unpaid.
Part of that role includes "Create ways to gain the business money"
So they want you to create revenue streams, but not compensate you for it. That's just rank. It's awful that someone thinks it's good practise to operate a business in this manner.
I'm a scientist (academic in a university). Science would suffer if we leave the EU; the vast, vast majority of our grant funding comes from Europe. While arrangements could be made, there's no real reason to believe they would.
Government spending on science is only falling, and we're currently spending the least of any G8 country as a fraction of GDP. The UK punches above its weight in science, but be under no illusion, the government does very little to support this, while the EU does a huge amount. Government spending would inevitably increase post-Brexit, but the sector would suffer massively.

Private Internet Access (PIA) is the default recommended proxy and is $39.99 per year. Includes all the extras such as a kill switch so that if and when the connection to the server fails you don't use your normal IP address. Loads of servers in different countries, fast speeds, free, optional ad and virus blocking (especially good for mobile), doesn't keep any logs.....
I know you're joking, but it was actually said by Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg Trials. We teach about all the crimes committed by the Nazis, yet it's a shame we don't teach about how they convinced the German public to go along with it, and how most of the tactics for propaganda they invented are still used to this day.
Sunny Beach is marketed and aimed at young adults, so it's a party resort. Think loud music, cheap booze, topless women. Would not go on a family vacation there.
Golden Sands is better. It's close to a big city (Varna), lots of nice beaches in the area, sea water temp is around 25-28C in the summer. Check out the travel guide, it has some ideas.
Eating out - very affordable compared to the rest of the EU. You can easily get a 3 course meal for 10 EUR in a mid-market restaurant. I like Happy.

Most content filters do. I was at school when filters had just become common practice. They all sucked. Biology research was impossible, Encyclopedia Britanica was our method for accessing the internet without a firewall. Because it ran from a custom version of IE5/6 you could catch it while it was loading and hit the http://www.britannica.com/ link that popped up in the loading credits and get unabridged access to the entire internet.
Since the Britannica that we had ran automatically as administrator you could then use that version of IE to install whatever you want, even modify the start screens, sounds etc.
Britannica may suck compared to Wikipedia, but in all honesty I still appreciate their terrible application security from when I was in school.
I never wanted to look at such a site (I don't have a Switch) but I do now. (Why hello, NordVPN.)

> ... GBP/USD still looks the same to me long term.
Are you on drugs or something? The exchange rate shat itself in 2008, wobbled about a bit between then and mid-2014, then starts on a downward trend before shitting itself some more when the ref results came in in 2016. It's climbed a bit since then but is still at a level lower than the lowest it got to post '08 crash.
Give him a copy of Manufacturing Consent. It pulled me back from the edge at around his age.
I think the problem is at that age you start to get a sense that the media is manipulative as fuck. But the only people saying that loudly enough for young people to hear are the Tommy Robinsons of the world.
We desperately need some loud leftist voices.
Do not use PIA , it's USA based which means your data is probably with gchq, VPNs are about trust and you want one NOT in UK or USA. - Cryptostorm is decent based in Iceland or both tick all the boxes green via that privacy guy chart. There is lots of PIA is great bots on reddit....
It's fairly simple and would work, which is why it won't happen until there's enough clear popular pressure behind it: Fines for any entity profiting from illicit activity should always exceed by some significant margin the financial gains related to said activity.
Then you add incentives for actually providing information on those gains, such as stating that if no reliable estimate can be made then the estimate used will be twice that of the highest probable estimate. Which would mean that in most cases, those caught would have a clear incentive for making sure that a reliable estimate can be made.
As for corporate ownership, you're entirely right that it shouldn't be hidden. It only has two purposes, and they explain why the current situation is what it is: It helps enable tax dodging fuckery and other financial tricks, and makes it harder to track what companies our political representatives work for (everyone should read Parliament, Ltd).
Everyone has very strong opinions on VPNs, it all depends on what you're trying to do.
If your objective is to evade a geoblock you can achieve this for free using a free google cloud computing webserver as an tunnel endpoint. Last time I suggested this I got utterly dogpiled by people ranting about anonymity, who clearly had completely different threat profiles and objectives in mind. So I'm reticent to offer advice on reddit about this. Although I will point out that Private Internet Access are currently having a sale.
Each record is say 100 bytes comprising source, destination, time stamp, and duration. That is about 8TB uncompressed, which could be stored in RAM on 5 X1 EC2 instances.
They could maybe load it into their in house Graph Database.
If you have a Netflix account, try this speed test: https://fast.com/. If you find it super low compared to what you think you should be getting, you may complain to your ISP.
If that doesn't help, and switching providers is not an option, the easiest solution is to connect through a VPN. (related subreddit: /r/Netflix-Via-VPN)

Edit: in case you doubt, this is a pic of me taken from BIAP tower in 2006, posted on Reddit a while back. I was a Puma pilot for the majority of my time in. If you care to read the book Task Force Black by Mark Urban you can find out what the Pumas were doing in Baghdad at the time. I think that would answer your questions about my CI involvement.

With PIA at the moment but thinking of changing to NordVPN. PIA are so popular on reddit I'm assuming there are a lot of their shills about, but they don't do as well as others on
They're also based in a five eyes country, which is a big turn off. But don't have any more concrete complaints about them than those.
Edit: maybe not NordVPN. I'll just have to go through again.
Because it normalizes being a massive sociopathic cunt for them?
Seriously, I feel sorry for Ayn Rand, who was clearly the victim of early child abuse (boarding school, anyone?) which warped her mind and broke her sense of society.
Her heroes are utter, utter arseholes. John Galt invents a bloody free energy machine, instead of letting everyone benefit from it, basking in the glory, and Nobel Prize, and basically never having to buy a beer again, he decides that he will never (probably true) profit to the tune of the real value of his invention, and decides to take his ball home and fuck off and found a society for other sociopathic twats like him.
No sorry but it's just a word. No bizarre hate group will redefine or delegitimize its meaning. Regardless of what it means to you it does have it's own real meaning that is used by the vast majority of the planet;
The Cornwall: This Fishing Life BBC2 series is an "interesting" watch if you want to see turkeys voting for Christmas. Six episodes.
It's an unpoliceable/ uncontrollable border, always has been, always been will be.
Policing rests on consent of those being policed. The people being policed have to accept the legitimacy of those who are policing them for it to work.
If you go to any village either side of the border and ask anyone about that border and they'll probably tell you that it never should have existed in the first place. Here is the dilemma for the UK government, how do you police and enforce controls along a border when the people who live along it have absolutely no desire for it to exist? Even during the Troubles the British army could never fully control it. They'd block up a crossing in rural Fermanagh or somewhere and literally within days it'd be open again. The locals would have removed the barricade themselves. There's a good documentary on iplayer which looks at the border. You should watch it if you can/have time.
The border counties of Ulster is where Brexit is exposed. How can you take back control of your borders when the only border you have is one you physically cannot control?
I use IVPN and have previously used AirVPN. Both are good.
Do not trust PiA. It's extremely suspicious that the highest rated comment always seems suggests them, even though they are a US based service. My guess is they push their affiliates programme extremely aggressively.
There's a website with great comparisons, use that.
The point of /r/brexitblunders and /r/brexitbenefits is to provide a list that is as reliable and neutral as possible (if occasionally tongue-in-cheek) without the hyperbolic opinions attached; all comments do is divide and further entrench existing positions, particularly online.
The point is to provide resources that allow somebody to weigh up the pros and cons of either side which relies on as reputable sources as available. You can't talk somebody out of changing a position, you can only plant seeds and let people become exposed to more and more evidence that counters their view, from their own accord. It's literally cult deprogramming 101; there are serious books and they all say the same thing.
We are 100% serious about /r/Brexitbenefits being used for genuinely positive things... but there just aren't any.
Besides, who can be arsed modding comments all day?
Texas were super blatant about it. Certain forms of ID counted and others didn't based on demographics. E.g. student ID rejected handgun concealed carry permit accepted.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

I'm not a Jehovah's Witness, but my family didn't celebrate Christmas, my father actively opposes it because he thinks it is too related to Paganism and not related to Christianity at all. He's a Christian, as am I.
edit: My point is, what the fuck does opposing Christmas have to do with Islamic Extremism? This is a scare tactic, the government is using terrorism as an excuse to reduce everyone's freedoms. ^(^^edited ^^again ^^for ^^link)
Quite a serious problem. The transatlantic cable has been cut and all traffic is being rerouted as we speak. It's affecting large parts of Europe, not just you :)
Are the words very legible? If so, you could do it yourself. Size 12 Verdana is a good, readable font.
What you'd want is something called an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program. Something like this:
I would imagine a good piece of software would have no trouble picking up 12pt Verdana.
You could try scanning in a couple of pages yourself to test it, and if it all works okay take the entire thing to a print shop and ask them to scan it all in for you as a PDF.
I once scanned 1000 pages of A4 at a print shop near me and it cost me around £40, to give you an idea of pricing.
I use PIA (Private Internet Access), and based off this article. They seem pretty open about how much privacy they can grant, especially from organizations like the NSA and GCHQ.
Countries can lobby for rules not to take place or for other changes.
To give you two examples which the UK lobbied for recently:
"I would like to congratulate the coalition government for bringing a whiff of privatisation into the beleaguered National Health Service"
Paul Nuttall - UKIP MEP and deputy leader - 2014.
Would we though? Would this government? Would the next government? UK government research funding has been going down for years
Apparently 65% of 'webchatter' on the Royal Wedding is from the USA.
This is how the Royal Family help tourism, I know when the subject comes up there are always those that say "we'd still have the castles and palaces without them" - but we wouldn't have occasions like this watched by the entire world.
Also see: Keepa.com This will also tell you warehouse deal prices and flash-sale prices. There is also a decent web-plugin too, that adds a price-chart into the Amazon site.
You can see many products that frequently go on flash sale, and set a tracker to tell you the next time they do.
I've had two deals this week - a pair of trainers (£23 rather than £40 normally) and a kids camera (£25 rather than £40). Keepa shows me these are both good sale items.
A Mote in Brussels' Eye
> My collective investigations into EU fraud and corruption resulted in two visits to the Serious Fraud Office with boxes of documents and evidence accumulated with the aid of a leading forensic accountant, and the former Chief Accountant of the European Commission. Another visit was made to Scotland Yard with documents and evidence of malfeasance against members and officials of the British government. All were ignored.
> Five years in the EU lunatic asylum showed me that EU corruption was truly out of control. But nobody cared any more – even if they once did. The few, like me, who knew, understood and complained, were simply ignored.
> Bureaucrats are for ever, and answer to no-one. The EU belongs to them. They are the self-appointed guardians of ‘the project’, as they like to call it. Worse, they also have the keys to the safe.
> Sun Tsu, the Chinese author of The Art of War, told warriors to ‘study your enemy’. I not only studied the EU – I dug dangerously deep. I became a known guerrilla inside the gates of the citadel. That’s what truly frightened them…and still does.
Looks like he went native.
The blog post says it works through "Google Play Services," which is a default (unremovable) app on all android devices that has pretty much every permission including the location permission that this feature would need for GPS positioning (note, I seem to be able to disable some of the permissions, not sure if that because of the new permission features in Android 6 or because I run the Cyanogen version of Android). The blog said it would be work on every Android phone running at least 2.3 (which is over 5 years old now - the blog says 99% of all Android phones are compatible, which matches the stats here).
Note - not an expert on Android by any means, this info may be wrong.
Not that anyone here would like to make up his own mind instead of repeating the talking points of the media but just in case a miracle should occur here is the context.
It was obvious bait and everyone is falling for it.
Having them is one thing, being able to maintain, train, equip, repair and afford to actually run them is another game. Which Argentina can't really do at the moment due to their ongoing currency devaluation and general lack of spending of defence.
War is boring blog has a regular round up every few months about the poor state the Argentine Air Force is in and it's deterioration since the Falklands which worth a read.
One link in question about their deteriorating Air Force
Second link about a previous plan to purchase Gripen fighters set to be built by Brazil.
6 months ago though it did look promising for their Shale oil developments so perhaps they were anticipating a potential windfall from that bits taken a big hit recently
That's not true.
The Good Friday Agreement isn't based on amnesty. What the Good Friday Agreement does is limit the maximum prison term for those convicted of paramilitary activity to two years. Criminal investigations and prosecutions are ongoing. For example, just this week, a former loyalist paramilitary was charged with the murder of two Catholic civilians. There are also ongoing inquiries into incidents such as the Kingsmill massacre.
There is no general amnesty enshrined within the Good Friday Agreement, although experience suggests that state agents will largely be shielded by the British government and will escape punishment for their crimes.
It's interesting reading through the comments here, there are some points that I haven't seen mentioned
(By the way.. having been to the estate when we protested on Saturday... these aren't luxury apartments. They are basic, blocky homes tucked behind a row of basic, blocky shops. It's not luxury living, it just happens to be in an up-and-coming part of London)
Those that show a hard-line attitude might also argue against Living Wage ("screw her! She should get a better job if she don't like her wages!"). Don't you want anybody to staff the jobs that you need in this city?
Supporting a pair of billionaire brothers in their endeavor to screw over local residents, whilst not supporting a living wage is so short sighted. We can't live in a city where the only residents are earning enough to pay £2,000/month in rent.
Anyway - I wrote this after the protest on Saturday: https://medium.com/@simo_morris/a-dickensian-tale-of-inequality-in-east-london-68ad42092323
I went out for a drink with a few mates last night and one of them is Lithuanian. And was telling me about how his dad used to give him swastika inscribed jewelry. We had a good long discussion on about how anti-communist feelings can then switch over to supporting the same evil people who just happened to be fighting them.
I'm reading this at the moment
And the iconography and uniform of fascists was VERY important to them. It's literally why political parties aren't allowed uniforms today.
The resistance to fascism seems to have vanished these days, as much as people are willing to sometimes go out and wave placards, they're not willing to actually fight these fascists. "Antifa"scists are somewhat small in numbers in the UK.
SUTR are a fucking damb squib, they like to wave placards AWAY from where the fash are, I've even been kettled by their stewards because fash decided to move over and surround them.
You mean like PureVPN's no logs policy
>We DO NOT keep any record of your browsing activities, connection logs, records of the VPN IPs assigned to you, your original IPs, your connection time, the history of your browsing, the sites you visited, your outgoing traffic, the content or data you accessed, or the DNS queries generated by you.
Yet the FBI were able to use these "non existent" logs to track down a stalker.
>“Further, records from PureVPN show that the same email accounts — Lin’s Gmail account and the teleprtfx Gmail account — were accessed from the same WANSecurity IP address.”
>PureVPN determined “that their service was accessed by the same customer from two originating IP addresses: the RCN IP address from the home Lin was living in at the time, and the software company where Lin was employed at the time.”
Surely women are more likely to report struggling with anxiety because of our 'man up' culture?
The Guardian seem to be pushing a lot of 'women have it worse than you!' articles , I haven't seen a mention of male suicide rates in awhile. When I looked at this article earlier some of the comments pointed this out, now almost all of them have been deleted.
This article says people under 35 suffer most, but in February they ran an article saying;
>people aged 40-59 least happy and most anxious report finds
It also said;
>While women overall reported experiencing higher levels of anxiety than men, they were happier and more satisfied with life than men.
Which is somehow neglected from this article.
They also agree with gender segregation, as long as it's men that aren't allowed in.
Randi Lee Harper is a good example of a fake journalist that is supports doxxing, she fabricates this nonsense. I don't know about the other two women in the picture.
(I'm not saying Randi Lee Harper doesn't receive online abuse, just that she is making claims about online abuse in general that are not backed up by data and have in fact been refuted by Pew).
Not sure if you're joking, but that's Amber Rudd, the Home Secretary who resigned over Windrush - pretty much the only negative consequence for the government over the entire scandal.
Her resignation was included in the excellent BBC dramatisation last night, which I assume was the trigger for this post.
This is where he’s been updating.

I was following his updates as he was telling people what was happening on the ground, but thought/hoped he’d managed to get out last night with Miles the tourist of Kabul
Before I was able to get a kitchen I bought a single induction hob like this:
Tefal IH201840 Everyday Induction Hob, Ceramic Coated Cooking Plate, Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ER445UQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_XgVYBb6B7GNYS
(there are some a little cheaper but that one seems well reviewed)
You can do a hell of a lot of cooking with a hot pan. Otherwise managing with just a microwave and George foreman is quite challenging!
That more is spent on London isn't surprising (though a bit irksome if you arent a Londoner) as you are contrasting a dense city with regions that may be a mix of dense urban and rural low density areas. However what is a bit shocking is the scale of the difference:
>* London - £2,731
>* South-east of England - £792
>* East Midlands - £311
>* West Midlands - £269
>* Yorkshire and Humberside - £201
>* North-west of England - £134
>* Eastern England - £43
>* South-west of England - £19
>* North-east of England - £5
It would be useful to have the figures for other cities e.g. it would be particularly unfair if Birmingham had significantly less transport investment than London.
Lacking [that] though I've adjusted the figures for population density (as reported by Wikipedia):
So presuming that my math makes sense London isnt that exceptional when considering spending by population density. But even for adjusting for density the fringes of England are significantly disadvantaged, in particular the North-East and South-West, while the South-East and the East Midlands receive significantly "more than their fair share".
Until recently I always assumed those 39 Vietnamese victims died of cold in a refrigerated lorry. It was actually the opposite - they were packed in so tightly, in an insulated vehicle, that they overheated.
I watched BBC - Hunting the Essex lorry killers and one of the saddest details was the data captured by the lorry’s temperature recorder. Throughout the journey it got progressively hotter and hotter until it hit 39c/101f. Then the temperature began to fall... Awful.
You really should read up some more about some basic concepts - such as what socialism actually is !
> A political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.
The stock market is not "the community as a whole", and it wasn't just early communists that advocated state ownership. Anyone who doesn't advocate similar ideals, isn't a socialist at all.
In other words, you are confusing socialists with social democrats.
I fully agree. The University of Nottingham leadership itself absolutely refused to stand up for academic freedom when the Terrorism act was used against its own researchers:
This is a far greater threat to free speech than the occasional "politically correct" leftist student associations that are mostly powerless. Muppets is correct.
Where are all these defenders of free speech and discourse when the Guardian is ordered to destroy its hard drives (however meaningless the act)? When Alan Rusbridger, editor in chief of the Guardian, is asked in Parliament "Do you love your country", insinuating his reporting is unpatriotic/traitorous.
I'm not aiming this just to you, I think this is good info for both sides of this debate..
The vast majority of farms are small, but the vast majority of meat comes from big farms
from here: https://steemit.com/food/@somethingburger/walking-through-data-hog-and-pig-farms
This is from US and it's about pigs, but a similar pattern probably happens here though i suspect it isn't as extreme. My point is that those arguments from either side don't necessarily contradict each other.
Everytime i read some sensationalist report about Jeremy Corbyn being 'unelectable' (or making outrageous statements showing his incompetence) I find time and time again that his words have been taken out of context.
Now obviously the mass media is famous for doing this but the frequency with which they do it with Corbyn is incredible. I understand each outlet has it's own agenda but each of them seem to be portraying Corbyn as a radical, bumbling, political illiterate , which he is very clearly not.
There was a great article about Corbyn/Sanders by Glen Greenwald which breaks down the establishment backlash (including the media) against Corbyn and I have to say I agree with every point.
