The Laziest Generations

At the turn of the last century workers and students around the world were willing to take to the streets, launch revolutions, and battle the agents of the wealthy elite to death, if need be, in order to advance basic human rights of justice and equality for all, fair and living wages, and tolerable living conditions.

In the United States, the monopolies of the Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Vanderbilt were broken up and in Europe lethargic and impassionate monarchies were overthrown by popular worker-led revolutions.

Fast forward the calendar to the present and the world is witnessing the same ingredients that forced change in the early 1900s. The people of Greece, the cradle of democracy, have witnessed their entire nation picked clean by the Euro-banker vultures, with the House of Rothschild rubbing their hands behind the central bankers, in a foreign-dictated series of austerity programs.

However, unlike the progressive popular movements of the early 20th century, workers and students in Greece and other nations afflicted by the global banking-imposed austerity programs, lose their steam after holding a few general strikes, marches on parliament, and the occasional overturning of a police car. Events that should be concluding in a series of overthrows of banker-controlled governments in Athens, Rome, Madrid, and Lisbon by united worker-student-pensioner popular fronts instead end up with establishment oligarchical political parties forming coalitions that answer only to the dictates of supranational contrivances of the global elite. Today, it is the European Union, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund that dictates who governs nations like Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, not the people of those countries… Continue reading

Skype Won’t Say Whether It Can Eavesdrop On Your Conversations

By Ryan Gallagher

New surveillance laws being proposed in countries from the United States to Australia would force makers of online chat software to build in backdoors for wiretapping. For years, the popular video chat service Skype has resisted taking part in online surveillance—but that may have changed. And if it has, Skype’s not telling.

Historically, Skype has been a major barrier to law enforcement agencies. Using strong encryption and complex peer-to-peer network connections, Skype was considered by most to be virtually impossible to intercept. Police forces in Germany complained in 2007 that they couldn’t spy on Skype calls and even hired a company to develop covert Trojans to record suspects’ chats. At around the same time, Skype happily went on record saying that it could not conduct wiretaps because of its “peer-to-peer architecture and encryption techniques”.

Recently, however, hackers alleged that Skype made a change to its architecture this spring that could possibly make it easier to enable “lawful interception” of calls. Skype rejected the charge in a comment issued to the website Extremetech, saying the restructure was an upgrade and had nothing to do with surveillance. But when I repeatedly questioned the company on Wednesday whether it could currently facilitate wiretap requests, a clear answer was not forthcoming. Citing “company policy”, Skype PR man Chaim Haas wouldn’t confirm or deny, telling me only that the chat service “co-operates with law enforcement agencies as much as is legally and technically possible”.

Critics of Sustainability Hysteria Slam UN’s Anti-liberty Rio+20 Agenda

Source: Alex Newman

Rio De Janeiro — Amid the thousands of people assembled at the United Nations Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development calling for global government and anti-market “solutions” to alleged planetary “sustainability” and “biodiversity” problems, a vocal coalition of environmental realists who refuse to buy the UN-backed agenda are calling for some sanity — market solutions, real science, and national sovereignty. Some have even proposed abolishing the controversial global institution altogether.

While the international press has largely ignored the stinging criticism so far, the small cadre of liberty-minded environmental experts, activists, and lawmakers seemed optimistic. The climate alarmism of a few years ago, for example, is virtually “dead” despite overwhelming media support.

On Thursday, following the stunning implosion of the science behind global-warming theories, the whole topic has largely taken a back seat to new UN allegations — overpopulation, decreasing biodiversity, and a lack of “sustainability.” But those overhyped fears may well collapse soon as well.

Medicaid Hacked: Over 181,000 Records and 25,000 SSNs Stolen

The Utah Department of Health has been hacked. 181,604 Medicaid and CHIP recipients have had their personal information stolen. 25,096 had their Social Security numbers compromised. The agency is cooperating with law enforcement in a criminal investigation. The hackers, who are believed to be located in Eastern Europe, breached the server in question on March 30, 2012.

Microsoft Buys 800 AOL Patents For $1 Billion
Marking the latest escalation in the technology industry’s intellectual-property arms race, Microsoft is paying AOL a shade over $1 billion for 800 patents, the cream of which AOL CEO Tim Armstrong has described as ‘beachfront property in East Hampton.’ Armstrong insists they haven’t left the cupboard bare: ‘We continue to hold a valuable patent portfolio as highlighted by the license we entered into with Microsoft. The combined sale and licensing arrangement unlocks current dollar value for our shareholders and enables AOL to continue to aggressively execute on our strategy to create long-term shareholder value.

Smart Underwear Designed For Military

 

A team of scientists at the University of California San Diego, led by nano-engineering professor Joseph Wang, has designed some high-tech underwear that may save lives. Sensors in the waistband can monitor a person’s blood pressure, heart rate, and other vital signs. The designers also hope that one day the underwear can release drugs to relieve pain and treat wounds. From the article: “But the technology’s range of application goes beyond the military. ‘We envision all the trend of personalized medicine for remote monitoring of the elderly at home, monitoring a wide range of biomedical markers, like cardiac markers, alerting for any potential stroke, diabetic changes, and other changes related to other biomedical scenario,’ said Wang. Wearable biosensors can also provide valuable information to athletes or even measure blood alcohol levels.”
