Prince Charles 'black spider' memos reveal lobbying of Tony Blair | UK news A cache of secret memos sent by Prince Charles to senior UK ministers has finally been published, following a 10-year freedom of information battle between the Guardian and the government. The letters reveal that Charles lobbied ministers, including former prime minister Tony Blair, on a wide range of issues including agriculture, the armed forces, architecture and homeopathy. The correspondence was disclosed after the Guardian won a decade-long legal tussle with the government, which had argued that publication of the letters would make it hard for Charles to maintain a position of public neutrality when he became king. The letters, published at 4pm on Wednesday, reveal how Charles lobbied Tony Blair when he was prime minister to replace Lynx military helicopters. Charles complained: “I fear this one more example of our armed forces being asked to do an extremely challenging job without the necessary resources.” Blair replied: “We can do quite a lot here ...

Here are the funniest 'global stereotype' maps Unless you've been living in a cave for the last few years, you've definitely seen (and laughed at) the wildly popular 'global stereotype' maps. The man behind them is Bulgarian artist Yanko Tsvetkov, who told i100.co.uk he started making the satirical maps for fun when trying to explain European geopolitics to friends from abroad. Yanko said the maps he put up on Flickr "accidently" went viral, and based on the interest, he decided to expand the project. It was so popular it ended up spawning two books called Atlas of Prejudice Volumes 1 and 2, and Yanko has just finished a third which unveils "new fascinating landscapes of human bigotry." His ideas span from visualisations of how the ancients viewed the world: To the intricacies of modern geopolitics... Cultural phenomenons (these maps are brand new): And even predictions for the future. Yanko told i100.co.uk he doesn't have a simple explanation for why people love the stereotyping maps so much.

What is needed then is for one to be able to distinguish the meaning of one word from another. The words ‘amicable’ and ‘amiable’ are almost spelled the same with the letter ‘c’ added to amiable.

Here's what the world looks like when you map countries by population I don’t want to alarm you, but your metadata is showing, and can lead people straight to your credit card details. Scientists have found that 90 percent of the time, they need just four pieces of outside information on you - for example, what store you shopped at on a given day, what you bought, how much an item cost - to match an anonymised credit card record to your identity. The team, led by computer scientist Yves-Alexandre de Montjoye at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US, analysed three months of credit card records belonging to 1.1 million people. The records had been stripped of any personal information, including names and account numbers, which is what companies routinely do when they sell data about you and your purchases to other companies. The team then gathered information from 10,000 shops, and information readily available about individuals online, such as their tweets, Instagram photos, and Facebook updates. So, what's the solution?
