but remember, Canada burned the White House down #neverforget1814
Edit: Yes i am aware that the British burned it down but as always it is a joke on what President Stupid said on an earlier occasion as see in in this news article (https://edition.cnn.com/2018/06/06/politics/war-of-1812-donald-trump-justin-trudeau-tariff/index.html) thanks u/MovinSlowlyer for the comment on the comment
This is not shocking news, or exclusive to Facebook if you work in web development.
There are incredibly popular analytics services such as Hotjar used by millions of websites, which are literally designed just to track what users are doing on a page.
Most of these services have a playback feature where they can analyse a user’s session and “replay” it to watch what they were doing on the page. You can watch a mouse cursor moving around and see how the user scrolled the page, what they clicked on, what they entered into a form, etc.
I guarantee you have been tracked like this many times, by many websites, for many years.
I am reading this book (that won the Pulitzer and is fucking excellent, although a little dry at times).
Anyways there is a big track in there about Kennedy's meeting with Khrushchev in Vienna because they both felt that it was important to understand each other now that nuclear weapons were an issue. A simple misunderstanding could lead to nuclear war. They met in private - but both sides had a translator - and took notes. They had a philosophical talk about allowing countries to change their style of government to either communist or capitalist, West Berlin and nuclear arms. You got the impression that it was two really smart dudes trying to deescalate things and even though they were openly supporting actions against the other, it was for thought out reasons and they didn't want it to go further.
Then you see Trump basically being lead around by Putin like a lapdog. Republicans, what the fuck happened? You are disgracing our country.
Edit: I am a total karma whore and yet this is the first time I have been surprised of a post blowing up. Sure the end is a little aggressive, but I am pretty sick of Trump and my anonymous Reddit posting is going to reflect that on posts that I am not expecting to blow up.

I'm afraid the game's more complicated. According to this book, they have successfully moved their factories to Louisiana after being kicked out of Taiwan and South Korea. Then after a quick google, I see they've had lot of encounters all over the world with fines, pollutions, chemical spills, and other nasty shenanigans. Bottom line: with that much colorful history I don't know how anyone can call this latest episode an accident?
Some pro-government political commentators and journalists in Russia have said that his family can get prison term for taking chemical warfare agent through national border - they've brought a bottle that has a nerve agent which poisoned Navalny.
Which is ironic considering that there's no investigation of any kind into Navalny's poisoning in Russia, and noone was gathering evidence.
2011 is also the year Trump paid buyers of Trump Soho $2.8 million to stop cooperating with a Manhattan DA investigation into criminal Russian funding sources for the project.

This is the reason why I've adblock and noscript. Never again loudass videos when I just want to read something.
edit: noscript it's for firefox, blocks all scripts, which can be either temporary or permanently unblocked, for each adress seperately. For example, you can unblock a video(after you found out which adress is for the specific viedeo), without unblocking all other videos on the side, as long as they're from adifferent adress. This is most of the time the case, as ads have their own adress.

Obama has been a major abuser of human rights. If I remember correctly, I think he was one of the only presidents to be in war for all 8 years of his presidency. He actively persecuted whistleblowers, kept Guantanamo open, and still kept the NSA going despite the massive leak. People are willing to overlook too much when it comes to Obama and the amount of freedom that was taken during this administration. I'm sorry, but gay marriage and marijuana isn't enough to forget the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Libyans and Syrians.
But it doesn't matter, the American people have basically spoken by voting for the complete decimation of the Democratic Party. Obama caused liberals to lose the House, the Senate, State legislature, Governor seats, and the Supreme court for the next decade at least. History has judged Obama, and the picture is not as rosy as the Nobel Peace Prize he received.
Edit: I forgot about TPP, Obamacare, racial tensions, Chinese aggression, Crimea .......... damn, but his speeches were slick so it's all okay right /s
> If the United States remains in combat in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria until the end of Mr. Obama’s term — a near-certainty given the president’s recent announcement that he will send 250 additional Special Operations forces to Syria — he will leave behind an improbable legacy as the only president in American history to serve two complete terms with the nation at war

After traveling to Japan a couple of times I just couldn't go back to scraping my ass with dry paper like a filthy animal. I felt like a third-world savage using restrooms in Japan and reflecting on my own caveman-esque civilization back home. I bought a smart-toilet seat / bidet the second I got home. 250 dollars and the thing has a heated seat, press a button and it sprays you clean, oscillating function... You can adjust the water temperature and water pressure. Anywhere from a spittle to glorious paint-stripping power. The whole process is indescribably more comfortable and more hygienic. For the first couple weeks I'd give it one wipe afterwards to make sure there was no residual poo left in the area but it gets the job done EVERY SINGLE TIME. Without fail. The seat also has a drying function so I haven't used a single piece of toilet paper in months. If you don't have a couple hundred dollars to splurge on a high-tech life-changing toilet seat you can buy an attachment that is like the kitchen sink sprayer. I learned to use those in Thailand. I call it the ass-blaster. It isn't powerful enough to completely clean you but it severely reduces the amount of paper you need to use. The mix of water / paper is just so much cleaner. Think about it this way; if someone smeared poo on your arm, you wouldn't just scrape away at it with a dry piece of paper and call it clean.
EDIT: This is the model I bought if anyone is interested. Bio Bidet BB-600. I have friends who bought this same model and are happy with it as well. Toto is the gold-standard if you want to spend a little more. Happy to answer any further question in my quest to proselytize the paper-scrapers of the world and save the Canadian forests.

But maybe he realises this since Trump has said he wouldn't hesitate to use an economic depression for personal benefit..
>sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy
So yeah, Trump will not hesitate to cause another Depression.
As a left-wing liberal who doesn't like Trump, credit where credit is due. If Trump's unorthodox methods lead to long-term improvements, he deserves to be commended. I don't care about the man, I care what he does. If he does the right thing, I'll like him. If he doesn't, I won't.
Edit: For my fellow liberals, CNN reports that South Korea credits Trump for the current negotiations.

I use uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger. Privacy Badger is made by the EFF and is set to not block anything at first, but as you navigate the web it will learn which domains follow you around and keep track of your location, and begin to either block cookies or outright intercept and deny requests to those domains.
It takes some manual tuning, for instance I couldn't use my github login or see my gravitar, so I changed those from completely blocked to just blocking cookies, and it will often block images from large CDNs, but you can see every domain blocked and make decisions for yourself.
I highly recommend it. Here's what it looks like on Reddit, and here's the EFF's page: https://www.eff.org/privacybadger

Highly suggest reading Putin's Kleptocracy: Who Owns Russia? Really succinctly lays out how Putin came to power with the help of the Mafia and how he was basically chosen in order to keep people out of prison. Unlike the US where the oligarchs really skate the law, in Russia, the law is basically set up to keep the oligarchs in power. Russia's wealth disparity is mostly due to graft and sweetheart contracts to the oligarchs and Putin is right in the middle of it. He has been since he was deputy mayor of St. Petersberg in the 1990s.
> In 1880, the age of consent was set at 10 or 12 in most states, with the exception of Delaware where it was 7.
edit: for those of you crying 'but the US changed the law, they are backward'. Yes, I agree that Pakistan needs to change the age of consent (clearly some Pakistanis are trying), but my point is more about the childish attacks on Muhammed for supposedly marrying an 8 year old. That was ~~1000s~~ 1500 years ago, yet in the US you could legally marry a 7 year old less than 150 years ago. Hopefully that provides some context and enables you to think logically about how different times had different societal norms. Calling Muhammed a pedophile makes no sense given this info, unless you accept that the US sanctioned widespread pedophilia less than 150 years ago.
This is the transcript of the interview they mention in the article: https://wikileaks.org/Transcript-Meeting-Assange-Schmidt.html

I work on creating genetic algorithms that can self improve and start random bitShare based companies around the world. The ones that do succeed get to transfer a bit of the funds to me, and to further promote the other companies, but mainly the investors get most of the profits.
Recently, one of the companies started exhibiting strange behaviour, spent a lot on seemingly wasteful purposes. Since it's already automated, we couldn't do a lot to change the course of action, but it freaking bought land in Nicaragua and opened up a server farm there. It's making money somehow, profiting, but there's not a single person that can investigate it further. Only communication with the company is via investing in it, or using it's services.
Anyway all this is a lie and I just wanted to write a scenario where the technological singularity would be unraveling, using present technology.

“Traitor” was the word used; treason is just one way to be a traitor.

It really seems like Russia holds the entire world in contempt. The behaviour of the Russian hooligans at the Euros last week, and the messages of support by top Russian officials like Igor Lebedev, a politician and board member of the Russian Football Union, say it all.

That article is literally cherry-picking from the Consumer Reports article (http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2015/03/cost-of-organic-food/index.htm) to serve it's own "Organic Food is Stupid" message.
If you read the Consumer Reports article, it deliberately mentions many worthwhile reasons to eat organic.
"No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable."
-Adam Smith, "The Wealth of Nations"
"It is not unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion"
-Adam Smith, "The Wealth of Nations", author and father of modern capitalism.
In any country where talent and virtue produce no advancement, money will be the national god. Its inhabitants will either have to possess money or make others believe that they do. Wealth will be the highest virtue, poverty the greatest vice. Those who have money will display it in every imaginable way. If their ostentation does not exceed their fortune, all will be well. But if their ostentation does exceed their fortune they will ruin themselves. In such a country, the greatest fortunes will vanish in the twinkling of an eye. Those who don't have money will ruin themselves with vain efforts to conceal their poverty. That is one kind of affluence: the outward sign of wealth for a small number, the mask of poverty for the majority, and a source of corruption for all.
"While the first two parts of this book discuss various ways in which 9/11 has ruined America and the world, the third part discusses a question that is generally avoided: Were the Bush-Cheney attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq really at the root of the ruination of America and the world in general, or did the original sin lie in 9/11 itself?"
Indeed. And we know what he's going to be talking about there don't we?
Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World by David Ray Griffin
When he was CENTCOM commander he required all his FGOs to read a list of books about warfare in the region and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, a book he always travelled with. Enlisted troops like to call him Mad Dog and the media ran with it but the officer corps know him by the more apt name, the Warrior Monk. We are very likely to have him in Trump's ear.
Edit: Monkey to monk
It reminds me of that quote from Obama to Sarkozy when discussing having to deal with Netanyahu.
>"I can't stand him. He's a liar," Sarkozy said of Netanyahu
> Obama replied, "You're tired of him; what about me? I have to deal with him every day," the site reported.
Looking at it now, it kinda makes sense why Trump and Netanyahu get on so well. Both seem completely insufferable.

As much personal disgust as Xi Jinping is purported to have with the nouveau riche, it certainly hasn’t prevented his extended family from becoming wealthy. That said, no clear link between government corruption and the immediate family of Xi Jinping has been made.
See this exposé of his family’s wealth Bloomberg did a few years ago:
Edit: corrected spelling and added info from deleted comment below, which I found really helpful: Panama papers show Xi Jinping is actually very wealthy despite his humble public persona.
I attended this today. Absolutely insane. Easily the biggest protest I've ever seen in my life. Also the heat was insane, but we were kinda saved by some wind breeze later.
Here's my Imgur Album of the protest if you guys want to see some pics. Taken by my Samsung phone. I also shot at least 20 videos at random times, I'll upload them when I get the chance.
I don't think it's a reading disorder. It's more like your brain sabotaging you.
The brain starts processing information before 100% of the information is taken in by the eyes. If it's a text from your wife saying "Stuck in traffic. Will be late" your brain only has to skim through some keywords to know what's going on. 'Traffic...late'. The rest is irrelevant (kinda).
In the case of this headline, those keywords would be China, legalises, gay, LGBT, adopt. Your brain probably has a deficit of information on Chile. Its 'What's up in Chile' folder hasn't been updated for a while (possibly due to lack of coverage in your media of choice). But your China folder however is fresh with content. China is popular. Brain knows China has a pretty strict government. Brain also knows China had that rule about families having a specific number of children. Chile didn't stand a chance. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's an association bias.
// I am not an expert so if anyone can prove me right or wrong please do //
Edit: To add on to this, Daniel Kahneman in his book Thinking, Fast and Slow called this phenomenon the availability heuristic, explaining that people tend to assess the relative importance of issues by the ease with which they are retrieved from memory. Frequently mentioned topics (China) tend to populate the mind even as others slip away from awareness (Chile). In turn, what the media choose to report corresponds to their view of what is currently on the public’s mind. It's a circlejerk of information, if you will. This is also why authoritarian regimes exert substantial pressure on independent media.
You can't directly help, but there are things you can do: Learn. Understand why this is happening and how to fight it. Then, teach.
The book "The Dictator's Handbook" by Bruce Bueno de Mesquita (Amazon link (non-affiliate)) completely changed how I process information about these kinds of things. It talks at length about protests in dictatorships, why they happen, and why they sometimes don't happen. How governments fight them. How and why our own governments sometimes help and sometimes don't.
I really, really highly recommend it.
But the difference is that Fluor was given a contract by the Army Corps Engineer. Weather dot com had a nice report on it 7 days ago.
> When the power association convened its conference shortly after Maria struck, PREPA told participants it wouldn’t need the network’s help because it had already contracted with Whitefish Energy Holdings LLC, a two-year-old consultancy, to spearhead the restoration efforts.
So the government skipped mutual aid from the APPA, which would have coordinated with the Army Corps, and went straight for Whitefish.
Straight up cash grab unless they’re actually a successful Contract Management business..
NordVPN is registered to an address in Panama used by shell companies. Their payments are processed by an american company called CloudVPN, which is owned by a man called Darius Bereika from Lithuiana. Darius Bereika also owns Tesonet, a data mining company.

Yeah, keep on trusting NordVPN. They're totally not sketchy at all.

Not just a guy. They arrested cardboard copies of the guy and tens of other single protesters who protested the arrest of the guy. Funny and sad.
I think you should modify your searches more. Notice how most of the 'Black Monday' is not related to the most recent one.
Here is a search I completed and it does appear that there is much less information readily available.
Also, I put on a VPN that allows for Chinese internet access from abroad. So the search that I did was, for all intents and purposes, conducted in China.
>because the cartoonists did not follow Islamic blasphemy laws
In Iran, there is no such prohibition, and cartoons/paintings/drawings of Mohammed are extremely common in Iran, you can see them on murals, in supermarkets and on postcards. If that weren't enough, an Iranian produced movie with the largest budget in Iranian film history(a film industry tightly controlled by the religious clerics) has an actor portraying Mohammed.
This is because Iran is a majority Shia-Islam country, not a Sunni-Islam country, and in Shia Islam, depictions of Mohammed are generally acceptable (at least in modern interpretations). The divide between Shia and Suni is precisely one of the root causes of so much tension between Iran and the rest of the countries in the Middle East, for most countries in the Middle East are majority Sunni, and it is in Sunni Islam that depictions of Mohammed are generally not deemed acceptable, however even within the Sunni community views differ.

Jennifer Government is a short satirical novel that deals with this.

Trapped into building street cred for a new line of $2500 sneakers by shooting customers, Hack attracts the barcode-tattooed eye of the legendary Jennifer Government.

According to dictionaries now, the primary definition is
>the underdeveloped nations of the world, especially those with widespread poverty
>the group of developing nations, especially of Asia and Africa, that do not align themselves with the policies of either the U.S. or the former Soviet Union
being the second definition. Wikipedia says the same thing on the very page you linked. The above use is completely legitimate, though the ambiguity means you should probably use another term to describe poor underdeveloped nations.
> An impotent Turkish man tried to find a remedy for his problem by securing a penis implant from a donkey — but his desperate quest angered his family so much that one of his sons eventually shot him. According to newspaper reports, Mehmet Esirgen had twice bought donkeys, amputated their sexual organs and attempted unsuccessfully to persuade doctors to carry out a transplant. His family bitterly opposed the idea, so when the 52-year-old returned home from a trip to Ankara in 1997 with a third donkey, his son vented his frustration by shooting him in the leg. Esirgen remained unrepentant, vowing to acquire a fourth donkey as soon as he recovered from the bullet wound. "For a long time now," he was quoted as saying, "I have had sexual problems and I have spent all my pension funds to overcome them."
Sounds like bullshit to me, but here you go.
Heat and smoke rise so the stairwell acts like a chimney and this can suffocate you if it's not ventilated well. It reminds me a bit of the Kaprun fire, where many died because they tried to go upwards and asphyxiated:
>The passengers, by this stage aware of the fire and unable to exit through the doors, attempted to break the shatter-resistant acrylic windows in order to escape. Twelve people from the rear of the train, who successfully broke a window with a ski pole, followed the advice of another escapee who had been a volunteer fire fighter for 20 years, and escaped downwards past the fire and below the smoke.
>Eventually, the conductor was able to unlock the doors, allowing them to be manually forced open by the remaining conscious passengers who spilled out into the tunnel and fled upwards and away from the fire. The tunnel acted like a giant blast furnace, sucking oxygen in from the bottom and rapidly sent the poisonous smoke, heat and the fire itself billowing upwards. All the passengers ascending on foot, as well as the train conductor, were asphyxiated by the smoke and then burned by the raging fire.

Bill Gates did a TED talk on this, here's some key snips:
> Next, would be nuclear. It also has three big problems. Cost, particularly in highly regulated countries, is high. The issue of the safety, really feeling good about nothing could go wrong, that, even though you have these human operators, that the fuel doesn't get used for weapons. And then what do you do with the waste? And, although it's not very large, there are a lot of concerns about that. People need to feel good about it. So three very tough problems that might be solvable, and so, should be worked on.

In fact, people had talked about it for a long time, but they could never simulate properly whether it would work or not, and so it's through the advent of modern supercomputers that now you can simulate and see that, yes, with the right material's approach, this looks like it would work.
>In terms of fuel, this really solves the problem. I've got a picture here of a place in Kentucky. This is the left over, the 99 percent, where they've taken out the part they burn now, so it's called depleted uranium. That would power the U.S. for hundreds of years. And, simply by filtering sea water in an inexpensive process, you'd have enough fuel for the entire lifetime of the rest of the planet.
And he ends with something the German government should pay attention to:
>So, what do we have to do? What am I appealing to you to step forward and drive? We need to go for more research funding. When countries get together in places like Copenhagen,they shouldn't just discuss the CO2. They should discuss this innovation agenda, and you'd be stunned at the ridiculously low levels of spending on these innovative approaches.
Narcissism. For those who don't want to click the link, here are the signs/symptoms of a narcissist;
Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance
Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration
Expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
Exaggerate achievements and talents
Be preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
Believe they are superior and can only associate with equally special people
Monopolize conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior
Expect special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations
Take advantage of others to get what they want
Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
Be envious of others and believe others envy them
Behave in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious
Insist on having the best of everything — for instance, the best car or office
Also, people with narcissistic personality disorder have difficulty dealing with anything they think of as criticism. When confronted they can:
Become impatient or angry when they don't receive special treatment
Have significant interpersonal problems and easily feel slighted
React with rage or contempt and try to belittle the other person to make themselves appear superior
Have difficulty regulating emotions and behavior
Experience major problems dealing with stress and adapting to change
Feel depressed and moody because they fall short of perfection
Have secret feelings of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and humiliation
Trump practically checks off everything on this list.
Just want to specify it’s over 1000 arrests spanning across the whole country, so they probably won’t run out of cells...
Most arrests were in Moscow (over 572), then Saint Petersburg (over 180) and Chelyabinsk (164). In some cities, Inauguration Day protests were allowed so no one was arrested, but in many major Russian cities they were not allowed by the city authorities so anyone participating might get arrested.
My numbers are from 2 hours ago, probably already many more arrested by this point but I couldn’t find a more recent update from Meduza
Par for the course for Putin. Coincidence and controversy abounds around this sadistic ego-tripping scapegoating denialist. A modern Stalin no better than the spoiled puppet dictator Assad he protects.
Involvement in MH17? Deny. Have state-run media conduct internal investigation. Big surprise it absolves them of blame despite Dutch report suggesting otherwise.
Denial and scapegoating of links in the Panama Papers
Involvement in the coup on parliament with Yeltsin.
Involvement in the stolen money that was supposed to feed the starving in St. Petersburg
convenience/coincidence surrounding the assassination of opposition leader growing momentum against Putin.
Convenience/coincidence of Russian apartment bombings that just so happened to help Putin rise in popularity.
Appealing to fear and using fear as intimidation and leverage is commonplace and well-documented. This is not a conspiracy, this is evidence that continues to mound. For anyone interested in delving further, read The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein, and watch PBS Frontline's Putin's Way.
Except that no one's really accepting it.
Both the US and the entire European Union have apparently voted against the ITU's WCIT-12 plans/decisions, turning this into a tremendous clusterfuck.
This is wrong. We have two kinds of sentences:
"Custody". Don't know a better English word. EDIT: sardinboks suggests "preventive detention".
If you are sentenced to 21 years in prison, you are out in 21 years (or less). If you are sentenced to 21 years of "custody", they evaluate you after 21 years to see if you are fit to join the society. If you are not, they keep you in prison for a while, and evaluate again. This is a potential life sentence.
17 confirmed dead. And the case was changed from terrorist attack to mass murder. Source

Don't these news papers bother to check for themselves before reporting based on some twitter post?
Chats on Telegram are not end-to-end encrypted by default, which means Telegram's servers can read everything you send. Both Signal and WhatsApp do end-to-end encryption by default.
Furthermore, Telegram's end-to-end encryption once contained a flaw that looks suspiciously like a backdoor, which doesn't make it any more trustworthy in my eyes.
EDIT: Also, Telegram does not support end-to-end encrypted group chats.
The wondering's usually a sign of a poor education. Nasty fucker that he was, Göring said it best:
>The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
There is this part in Viktor Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning" where he talks about this. He was in a concentration camp during WWII. I still think of this quote:
“On the average, only those prisoners could keep alive who, after years of trekking from camp to camp, had lost all scruples in their fight for existence; they were prepared to use every means, honest and otherwise, even brutal force, theft, and betrayal of their friends, in order to save themselves. We who have come back, by the aid of many lucky chances or miracles - whatever one may choose to call them - we know: the best of us did not return.”
The vast majority of VPNs are no longer functional, or have extremely intermittent connectivity from within China. Nord, Express, Mullvad and VyprVPN are effectively broken, with only smaller ones still working every now and then. It was not like this less than a year ago, where all of the above providers worked.

And, someone wrote a book from inside Guantanamo, harrowing stuff: http://www.theguardian.com/world/guantanamo-diary

For once, an understatement in the headline. They have been charged with worse crimes than that:
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Federal authorities unsealed an indictment Friday against the founders of the three largest internet poker companies operating in the U.S. The indictment charges eleven defendants, including the founders of PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, and Absolute Poker, with bank fraud, money laundering, and illegal gambling offenses, according to Federal authorities in New York. Restraining orders were issued against more than 75 bank accounts used by the poker companies and their payment processors, while five Internet domain names used by the companies to host poker games were seized, federal authorities added in a statement.
When the Prime Minister of Japan and most of his cabinet are members of a revisionist group that espouse the belief that Japan liberated East Asia from European colonisation by invading them and installing a far more brutal regime than the Europeans ever were and outright denying Japanese war crimes ever happened, pretty sure the Japanese government is doing this just to get South Korea off their backs.
Chomsky has been saying this for a long time, and now there is proof: Israel (and therefore the US) is punishing the Palestinians for voting the wrong way.
i dont know, but if you are curious you can always check the price history on camelcamelcamel.
i just spotchecked a few "devices" that they have highlighted and they actually are lowest price. this one for example fluctuates a lot. so i guess you could say that technically it was raised from 170 to 199 then back down to 139 currently for the sale
Here's a scary eyewitness story from a girl that was there.
I'm looking at the television right now. The exsplosion went off in the goverment block where the Prime minister has his office. The whole building is wrecked. Most of the windows have blown out and it's pouring out black smoke from the building.
There are also people who are hurt. It's total chaos here at the moment. The police have no control.
Edit They've just told us that you can see through one of the buildings. The exsplosion was a really big one. The Prime minister is in safety.
Edit 2 They've told us that there are several people dead. Nothing is confirmed at the moment though.
Edit 3 Just got confirmed that one person has been found dead. Most likely the amount of hurt and/or dead will rise. Also they think it's a car bomb which went off.
Edit 4 Now they say they've heard that there are even more people found dead. Two people are confirmed dead at the moment.
Edit 5 **This is the worst attack/incident in Norway since World War 2. The police have confirmed it's a terrorist attack.*
Edit 6 **It has been announced that there is a man who is dressed as a police officer who has begun shooting at teenagers at a summer camp. Some teenager are hurt or even killed. This shit is horrible!*
Edit 7 **Ten people at the camp are confirmed killed. The man who was dressed as a police officer had a glock and a machine gun with him.*
Here are two translated Norwegian articles from two of Norways biggest newspapers (both contain pictures, videos and so on of the scene):
Ditto - I have a Eastern Economy Edition of K&R when I took up learning C as a hobby. When I looked up the price for the same on the US version of Amazon, the price comparison was startling.
Here's the US paperback version, priced at <strong><em>about 53 USD</em></strong> according to Amazon, i.e. 3,554 Indian Rupees. Of course, the cheapest one you can still get new is about USD 15 or so dollars.
Here's the Indian "Eastern Economy Edition", paperback, of the same book, identical in every single respect, priced at a whopping 194 rupees, or <strong><em>about 3 dollars</em></strong>.
For the money you'd be shelling out, it'd be cheaper for you to buy a brand new copy of the book from an Indian bookstore and have it shipped out to you (possibly even through an express courier like DHL or FedEx) in the US than just buy the book in the US outright.
While that's true, it doesn't matter; equatorial regions have the most diverse ecosystems and are already at the edge of habitability in terms of temperature, so even if it's a smaller increase than at the poles, it will be enough to wipe out massive amounts of species.
The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert has a very good explanation around this, by the way. I highly recommend it
Guns of August and Ghosts of the Ostfront both agree that the lead up to Franz's murder was the straw that broke the camels back, meaning there was an entire bail of hay that had been building up for time.
I know we all like to speculate when the next world war will occur, and I firmly believe another will eventually happen, just not any time soon.
Correction: Britain is the abused parent whose troublesome off-spring (USA) got involved with the wrong crowd and broke away from the family, sleeping around with Mexican prostitues and gambling away its amassed fortune on fanatic wars with fundies, only to return decades later and start demanding more respect. Meanwhile Britain, an old fart with too many children to feed them all is sitting in a corner with a wheezy cough and a copy of the daily mail, reading of all it's old flames (India, Australia, Canada etc.) doing so much better since they broke up, leaving poor old Britain feeling wretched and weak, forced to live in a shambles of a flat where the rain never stops and the neighbours are either flamboyant sicophants or graecophobic jobsworths. Whats worse is how his wife Ireland won't speak with him anymore, and his brother Scotland wants to leave for good, and take away all the gas and shortbread, because he wrote The Wealth of Nations so he can do whatever the f*** he wants, never mentioning that one time they were bailed out of bankruptcy even once.
Britain isn't a sex slave, it's Victor Meldrew
Jacob Rees Mogg (one of the most vocal/prominent Brexiteers)'s father literally wrote a book on how to profit from economic crisis.

> When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard. Warriors will fight at their full strength and have no fear. When they are to die there, what can they not do?
-Sun Tzu, The Art of War, Chapter 11: "Nine Grounds"
Sun Tzu literally warned against doing exactly this, because your enemy will fight harder than ever and will go to extremes that would otherwise be unthinkable.
Even if you don't care how much harder you have to fight and how many more of your own soldiers will die as a result, surely that's something worth thinking about when they've got tens of thousands of civilians under their control.
Been listening to It Could Happen Here podcast recently and was surprised to find how plausible I found the speaker's hypothesis, something that 3 years ago I'd have found to be fringe lunacy.
For the time being.
I wonder how long it will be, before a government comes into power in the US, that decides to start curtailing the right to free speech just as current governments have obliterated the right to privacy in communications?
Surveillance states all progress in the same direction: toward ever-greater tyranny. Only total collapse of such a state halts this progression.
Seems it won't be long now.
Not this shit again.
Let's get the title right:
"Some random cybersecurity company who was not involved with the Sony case questions the FBIs findings"
"Norse" isnt even mentioned as one of the top 20 cybersecurity companies by marketwatch.
Theres so much misinformation these days...but is anyone paying attention to the sources?
Norse sits in probably 3 office spaces in a building shared by 30 other businesses, and they have only been in business since 2010, next door to a video store.
>It is assessed that the technician responsible has radio modifying experience
The article says that the plane received it over it's "high-frequency radio", which is something the author may not be conveying correctly. "High frequency" (HF) is a defined range of frequencies between 3 and 30MHz by the ITU, but isn't typically used by airplanes.
Planes typically use VHF (Very High Frequency) frequencies between 108 and 137MHz. A $23 radio can broadcast in the 136-174MHz range, which just barely overlaps the airband. So it's entirely possible that someone did this with an unmodified <$30 radio.
If you plug the radio into a computer, you can flash the firmware to lock/unlock frequencies outside the range of labeled frequencies with varying effectiveness. If the broadcast was truly in the HF band, it would be a more expensive setup, but it's likely the author didn't realize there's different distinct bands and thus didn't ask for clarification.
It's not. When my little brother was 8, my grandmother bought him Joyce Meyer's "Battlefield of the Mind for Kids" -- there was a chapter about thinking deeply. She warned that when we "lose focus," and allow our thoughts to wander, we open a door for Satan to fill us with doubts.
The whole thing was bat shit, but that part really got me. I hid the book under a sofa and tivo'd Cosmos (a few weeks later) for little bro to watch instead. No sibling of mine is going to grow up in fear of his own thoughts. What the absolute fuck.

Nestlé says, Nestlé says, Nestlé says...
While it is a terrifying thought, I'd like to see a credible peer reviewed analysis of the issue.
To be clear, I'm not calling bullshit, but I'd like something better than Nestlé says to understand the problem.
