Austria is being ridiculous again. If you denounce a website of containing “criminal content” internet access providers will be forced to censor them. According to the Supreme Court there is no need for a right holder to prove that there are any violations of rights.
So basically Austria goes back to pre-ancient times when it comes to the foundation of constitutionality, like where the burden of proof lies.
Actually it is more than that. Even if you could prove things wrong it doesn’t matter.
It is the third prolonged execution this year in the U.S., including one in Ohio in which an inmate gasped in similar fashion for nearly a half-hour. An Oklahoma inmate died of a heart attack in April, minutes after prison officials halted his execution because the drugs weren’t being administered properly.
Next to being a horrible, cruel, backward and disgusting thing to do it capital punishment costs about 20 Million USD in each case!
John Napier Tye is speaking out to warn Americans about illegal spying. The former State Department official, who served in the Obama administration from 2011 to 2014, declared Friday that ongoing NSA surveillance abuses are taking place under the auspices of Executive Order 12333, which came into being in 1981, before the era of digital communications, but is being used to collect them promiscuously. Nye alleges that the Obama administration has been violating the Constitution with scant oversight from Congress or the judiciary.
"The order as used today threatens our democracy," he wrote inThe Washington Post. “I am coming forward because I think Americans deserve an honest answer to the simple question: What kind of data is the NSA collecting on millions, or hundreds of millions, of Americans?”
Executive Order 12333 is old news to national-security insiders and the journalists who cover them, but is largely unknown to the American public, in part because officials have a perverse institutional incentive to obscure its role. But some insiders are troubled by such affronts to representative democracy. A tiny subset screw up the courage to inform their fellow citizens.
Paypal has a feature (it’s not a bug according to them) that allows the recipient of a payment to change the amount after you confirmed it. So when you confirm a 1$ payment the amount booked can end up actually being 500$ for example. Again, according to Paypal that is intended. So be careful.
CISPA is a law that turns the sites you love into legally immune government spies. It already passed the house, and even though no one wants it except the NSA, it’s headed for a vote in the Senate. Do something.
Nearly half of black males and almost 40 percent of white males in the US are arrested by age 23, which can hurt their ability to find work, go to school and participate fully in their communities. A new study released Jan. 6 in the journal Crime & Delinquency provides the first contemporary findings on how the risk of arrest varies across race and gender.
Police in Florida have been deliberately deceiving judges and defendants about their use of a controversial surveillance tool known as a stingray at the request of the U.S. Marshal’s Service, according to newly obtained emails.
A heavy black volume, amateurishly bound, with no name or title on the cover. The print also looked slightly irregular. The pages were worn at the edges, and fell apart easily, as though the book had passed through many hands. The inscription on the title-page ran:
THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF OLIGARCHICAL COLLECTIVISM
