NSA using Browser Cookies to track Tor Users Yesterday a new classified NSA document was leaked by Edward Snowden - titled ‘Tor Stinks’ in which ideas were being kicked around for identifying Tor users or degrading the user experience to dissuade people from using the Tor browser.

In order to trace traffic back to a particular Tor user the NSA needs to know the ‘entry, relay and exit’ nodes in the anonymizer cloud between the user and the destination website. In another method, NSA is using web cookies to track Tor user widely.

China’s Internet Is Flowering. And It Might Be Our Future. The HeyTea shop in the Chaoyang district of Beijing is an expression of svelte minimalism, its LED lettering and black tiles giving off a vaguely retro vibe. On a recent weekend, one of the last truly warm days of early fall, the location was full of upmarket customers — families with strollers, Gen Z-ers in knockoff Supreme streetwear — enjoying the popular cheese tea.

Radar Basics Bistatic Radar Sets Figure 1: two radar sets co-operate bistatically: the second radar receives the returns of the first one. Generally, the transmitter and receiver share a common antenna, which is called a monostatic radar system. A bistatic radar consists of separately located (by a considerable distance) transmitting and receiving sites. Therefore, a monostatic Doppler radar can be upgraded easily with a bistatic receiver system or (by use of the same frequency) two monostatic radars are working like a bistatic radar.
