Wikileaks publishes files on CIA hacking abilities

Wikileaks publishes files on CIA hacking abilities
 Correction — March 19, 2017 This article incorrectly describes WikiLeaks as “the organisation behind the Edward Snowden leaks”. WikiLeaks only got involved with Snowden after Snowden had leaked material through other outlets. 

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Yesterday, WikiLeaks, the organisation behind the Edward Snowden leaks, released files going into detail about the CIA’s hacking capabilities.

The collection, which WikiLeaks dubbed “vault 7”, contains 8761 files including claims the CIA can bypass the encryption of many popular encrypted messaging apps including WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Weibo, Confide, and Cloackman, and hack all major phone and computer operating systems, including 24 individual Android exploits, and Samsung smart TVs. It is claimed the CIA can use the Samsung F8000 TV to spy while seemingly turned off, a technique WikiLeaks claimed was a collaborative development of the CIA with MI5. It also alleges the US consulate in Frankfurt is used as a “sensitive compartmentalised information facility”, a secret base from which US spies hack Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

WikiLeaks compared the surveillance technology with George Orwell’s novel 1984, in which the TVs watch the citizens. The CIA said, “We do not comment on the authenticity or content of purported intelligence documents”, though no spokesperson from the home office was available to comment. However, Edward Snowden, ex-CIA hacker and whistleblower who previously leaked CIA documents, said he thought they looked authentic, claiming the documents contained inside information.

Shortly before the blasts, warning calls were made to Basque newspaper Gara and the Basque emergency road service known as DYA, police rushed to the scene and evacuated workers. The calls were made by the Basque separatist group ETA.

There are no confirmations of injuries or structual damage from the blasts at the moment. Spanish radio however reports that there were no injuries and some minor structual damage. Witnesses to the explosions say they were small.

Warning calls before blasts are common by ETA, usually Gara will get the call.

Age of Britain’s Toldpuddle Martyr tree discovered

Age of Britain’s Toldpuddle Martyr tree discovered

Thursday, July 14, 2005

The tree said to have sheltered the Tolpuddle Martyrs when they met in an attempt to form one of the world’s first trade unions has been dated for the first time. The Sycamore Tree is still alive and is under the care of the National Trust in the village of Tolpuddle, Dorset, UK. The Trust calculates that the tree is around 320 years old meaning that it would have been 150 years old when the Martyrs met in 1834.

The story of the Tolpuddle Martyrs is important to many trade unionists in the UK and across the globe. An annual festival is organised in the village by the Trades Union Congress (the umbrella body for trade unions in the UK) attended by thousands of people.

Nigel Costley, the regional secretary of the South West TUC, was quoted as saying: “The Tolpuddle Tree is one of the most famous trees in the country because it was under there that the Martyrs met – a move that led to their deportation, pardon, and ultimately the foundation of the trade union movement.”

There were six men in the group who came to be known as the Tolpuddle Martyrs. They were all farm labourers and lived in poverty. Their leader, George Loveless, decided to set up a union to give the labourers bargaining strength over their wages. Labour associations had been legalised but the men were arrested under a law forbidding the swearing of oaths. They were tried and deported to Australia but were released in 1836.

The Adventures And Profits Of Making An Adult Movie

By Dave L. Brown

First of all if you are looking for porn or links to porn in this article, I suggest you move on. This article just details my whimsical decision to make an adult movie and profit from it.

I was sitting at home, I was bored and I was trying to think of a fun way to make a little extra money. I don’t know why but I turned on my computer and starting searching for small business ides and one item I came across was that the porn industry was making ten billion dollars a year, and that the fastest growing segment in the porn industry was true amateur movies whether they where on DVD or on the web.

Well, this set my mind to racing about a hundred miles an hour. I was not sure I could make a porn movie. I worried about the ethical aspects of it, but more importantly I wondered what would happen if my friends, or worse, my parents where to see me acting in a porn movie! This was my biggest fear, and of course in my mind I was looking for ways to say yes I am going to make a porn movie instead of ways to say I cannot make a porn movie. So the solution was simple. I would not be in the movies, or if I were, I would never have my face on camera. As far as the being recognized, the issue was solved in my mind.

YouTube Preview Image

My second fear was what about the legality of making a porn movie, I sure did not want to go to jail so after a little research I found out that to hire adult models you had to get two copies of their identification and have them sign a models release, and keep records on file for as long as the movie was available on DVD or the web. So that was one more issue that was settled in my mind.

Next I had to wonder what kind of equipment I needed to shoot an amateur porn movie. I already had a good MiniDV digital camera, but I needed to get some lights. If you have ever seen families’ home videos the lighting is always bad, so lighting the subjects is going to be important. I made several trips to photography stores and I found out that lights where expensive, so after a little time on an Internet auction site I purchased some inexpensive lights, and they worked just fine.

Finally and perhaps the most important part, I had to find an attractive female model that was willing to take her clothes off and be on video for the word to see. I was pretty sure that this would be the hard part, but it was surprisingly easy. After placing a few ads on Internet sites seeking adult models my email was flooded with responses from women ready to be in my video. I made contact with a couple of the women and settled on which model I would like to hire, I made her and offer, told her exactly what I wanted her to do, and she accepted my offer. Within twenty-four hours we had shot the video, and I paid her. I was surprised how easy it had all gone up unto this point.

I did not realize it at the time, but the hardest part was distributing the movie and making money off of it. The Best and most effective way, was to build a web site, but I really did not want to put all my effort in to it. So after a little research, I found there was several companies that would distribute my DVD for forty percent of the profit. After a month I had recovered my money and made a little profit, and I still get check from that movie a couple of years later.

I could have quit all my other jobs, and worked at this full time and maybe even been quite successful, but I had other interest. It was fun and profitable, and maybe I have not made my last movie just yet.

AFC Asian Cup: Australia draw with Oman, hosts Vietnam upset UAE

AFC Asian Cup: Australia draw with Oman, hosts Vietnam upset UAE

Monday, July 9, 2007

Tournament favourites and debutants Australia have drawn 1-1 with a skillful Oman in the second match in Group A of the 2007 AFC Asian Cup.

Oman shocked the Socceroos when they scored on thirty-two minutes, after some enterprising play on their left-hand flank. A ball cut back made its’ way through the Australian defence to Omani striker Badar Mubarak, who slotted the ball low into the left-hand corner of the goal.

Oman very nearly had a second goal on three separate occasions in the second half. They were only denied by three world-class saves by Australian goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, including a low save from a driving volley by Ahmed Mubarak, a reflex save to stop a point-blank header in the seventieth minute, and then another low-down save minutes later from Fawi Bashir’s driving shot.

A heavy downpour began ten minutes prior to the final whistle, and it appeared to reinvigorate Australia. They pressed forward in numbers, and were rewarded in injury time with a goal to Everton midfielder Tim Cahill, after a low volley by Marco Bresciano was well-saved by Omani keeper Suleiman Al Mazroui.

Cahill achieved the remarkable double of scoring both Australia’s first Asian Cup and World Cup goals, after he scored in the eighty-third minute of their match against Japan at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. He and John Aloisi capped off the comeback by scoring twice late to defeat Japan 3-1.

The Australian players were visibly frustrated by Oman’s play-acting tactics, which saw the stretcher used four times in the first half alone. British match commentator Simon Hill described the tactics as “a blight to the game” and “absolutely rubbish”, the latter in relation to one incident where no contact was made whatsoever. When queried about it after the game, Arnold said cynically “welcome to Asia”.

The Australians were flat and their defending was poor, said coach Graham Arnold at the post-match media conference. He also commented on goalkeeper Schwarzer’s three fantastic saves, saying “Mark Schwarzer’s got us out of jail. Schwarzer’s made two unbelievable saves, otherwise it’s 2-0 and all over”.

The draw leaves all four Group A teams equal on the table on one point, with one goal for and one against, following Iraq 1-1 draw with hosts Thailand yesterday.

In the other game played yesterday (UTC), co-hosts Vietnam caused a major shock by defeating United Arab Emirates in their Group B fixture.

The Emirates are the current Gulf Cup champions, and the hosts were expected to struggle to win this match, or progress from Group B which includes two-time Asian champions Japan and Asian Games gold medallists Qatar. Vietnam is playing at Asian Cup level for the first time in nearly half a century.

UAE had the better of the chances in an otherwise-even first half, with the best Faisal Khalil‘s shot in the thirtieth minute, which was well-saved by Vietnamese goalkeeper Duong Hong Son who managed to turn the ball around the post for a corner.

However, they scored two second half goals to take the three points from the My Dinh National Stadium. On sixty-three minutes, a counter-attack from the half-way line involving three Vietnamese players resulted in defender Huynh Quang Thanh putting the ball in the back of the net.

Vietnamese player of the year Le Cong Vinh made it 2-0 nine minutes later when he chased down a long ball and calmly lobbed it over Emirates goalkeeper Majed Nasser, who had come off his line to try and avert the danger.

Bruno Metsu, coach of the United Arab Emirates, substituted players and launched an all-out attack to try and salvage something, but failed to find the goals he needed.

British Airways plans to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 50% by 2050

British Airways plans to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 50% by 2050

Saturday, January 31, 2009

United Kingdom flag carrier British Airways (BA) has announced a plan to cut their net carbon dioxide emissions by 50% between now and 2050. The target was announced by airline head Willie Walsh speaking in Hyderabad upon the opening of a new route between London’s Heathrow Airport and the Indian city. This is the most ambitious such target set by an airline.

“Some people say that in economic times as desperately tough as these, we can afford to put climate change issues on one side. I could not disagree more. Halving net CO2 by 2050 is an extremely challenging target. But it is one I am sure we can achieve,” said Walsh.

“We will make progress through investment in cleaner aircraft, use of alternative fuels, more efficient flight routings and the spread of emissions trading from Europe to the whole world,” he explained.

“We have taken climate change issues very seriously for a long time. More than a decade ago, we became the first airline to publish fuel efficiency targets – and we have achieved an improvement since then of almost 30 per cent. […] We are the only airline to have experience of emissions trading, and we have helped fund research into lower-carbon aviation fuels. We are currently working closely with Rolls-Royce to develop alternative fuel opportunities.”

If successful, BA’s carbon dioxide emissions will lower from sixteen million tonnes in 2005 to eight million tonnes in 2050. Walsh also spoke of previous experience the airline had in the field, and noted that they “are currently working closely with Rolls-Royce to develop alternative fuel opportunities.”
