Snowden: "Facebook is a surveillance company rebranded as 'Social Media'"

No.238765 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Businesses that make money by collecting and selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.
"Facebook makes their money by exploiting and selling intimate details about the private lives of millions, far beyond the scant details you voluntarily post," Snowden said earlier in the day. "They are not victims. They are accomplices."

Death of investigative journalist sparks mass protests in Slovakia

No.236716 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

>Tens of thousands of Slovaks have rallied to demand the resignation of prime minister Robert Fico’s government following the murder of a journalist that has shocked the central European nation and stoked anger over sleaze in public life.

>Ján Kuciak and his fiancee, Martina Kušnírová, both 27, were found shot dead at their home near Bratislava on 25 February. Police have said Kuciak’s death was “most likely” related to an investigation of his that resulted in an article on alleged ties between Slovakia’s top politicians and the Italian mafia, which his employer posthumously published.

>Slovak media called Friday’s protest in the capital, Bratislava, the biggest since the 1989 Velvet revolution that toppled communism in Czechoslovakia. Thousands marched in other Slovak cities, while hundreds of people gathered in cities in Europe and elsewhere.

>Organisers demanded a thorough investigation of Kuciak’s death and a “new trustworthy government”. “Politicians in power have lost our trust,” said protester Maria Kuliovska, a 30-year-old mother on maternity leave. “We don’t trust them to guarantee an independent investigation. They have failed to investigate all previous scandals.”

>Kuciak’s journalism and then his murder have rekindled public frustration with the government’s failure to tackle graft and cronyism in Slovakia nearly three decades after the fall of communism and 14 years after it joined the European Union.

>‘They can’t kill us all’: Slovakian journalists defiant after murders

>Fico has led the country of 5.4 million people for 10 of the last 12 years and the economy has flourished, but the protesters in the capital, Bratislava, on Friday – estimated at up to 50,000 by the public broadcaster – chanted “Enough of Fico” and jangled keys just as they did in 1989 anti-communist rallies.

Interview with California judge William Alsup

No.239344 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
>California is a hotbed of climate change activism, so it perhaps wasn’t a surprise to see the cities of San Francisco and Oakland sue the world’s largest oil companies last year for allegedly knowing about the dire consequences of global warming while seeking to downplay or deny it.

>More striking is the approach of the judge in the case, the unorthodox William Alsup. The judge, who previously learned coding techniques for a Silicon Valley lawsuit, has set out a list of questions for a climate change “tutorial” on the floor of the courtroom on Wednesday.

Canada is failing to deport criminals

No.239242 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

On Sept. 10, 2003, Faulino Deng beat up a Toronto roofing contractor and threatened to kill him.

A lanky former Sudanese soldier, Deng had only been in Canada 10 months and already he’d committed an aggravated assault.

Because he wasn’t a Canadian citizen, Deng was brought before the Immigration and Refugee Board, which ordered his deportation.

“Canada was offering you a safe haven,” a Refugee Board adjudicator told him later. “And, sir, you have done nothing but abuse the protection that Canada afforded you.”

That should have been the end of Deng’s brief stay in Canada.

But he’s still here.

Fifteen years after the assault, Global News found him living in a Scarborough bungalow owned by Toronto Community Housing. He has amassed dozens more criminal convictions, one for sexual assault, and is scheduled for trial next year on five charges, including two counts of trafficking, which he denies.

Removals of those who are supposed to be the government’s top priorities — foreign citizens under deportation orders for security, international human rights abuses, serious crimes and organized crime — have declined by a third since 2014.

Over that same period, the number of deportation orders issued by the Refugee Board on those grounds has remained relatively stable, and even increased slightly.

As a result, a growing number of foreign citizens remain in Canada despite having been ordered out on public safety and security grounds. In 2012, they numbered just 291. In early 2018, there were almost 1,200.

Monkey on the loose last seen near strip club

No.239284 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
The monkey mystery deepened Tuesday afternoon, as North Miami Beach cops combing the neighborhood for the small primate weren’t able to confirm if it was the same animal that escaped from a Dania Beach primate lab a few days ago.

That missing monkey’s name is Mikey.

North Miami Beach police, working with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, are in search of a small as-yet-unnamed monkey that was first spotted early Tuesday morning outside of the popular strip joint, the King of Diamonds.

Someone spotted a monkey as they were leaving that establishment and notified police.

“The last time I heard we still hadn’t found him,” said Nicole Gomez, chief of staff to the mayor and city commission in North Miami Beach. “We don’t know if it’s the same monkey spotted near the Embassy Lakes community in Cooper City.”

That’s the home of the Dania Beach Vervet Project, a primate lab that studies the animals.

The monkey in North Miami Beach was last seen near Northeast Sixth Avenue and between 179th and 180th Streets. North Miami Beach City Manager Ana Garcia said it was headed toward Miami Gardens.

North Miami Beach police said on Twitter that they’ve received information indicating the monkey may have come from an industrial area just west of I-95.

Calls to the King of Diamonds about the monkey were not returned by early Tuesday afternoon.

Garcia, the city manager, said it looks like the monkey has had a long night.

“The monkey is still on the loose,” she said.
