Sex is the original palace of love, the most holy place of heaven Where is God's most holy place? It is the sexual organs of men and women, where love dwells. This is heaven's most holy place. (134-185, 1985.4.7) What is the symbol of the love of a man and woman? How to remain secure against NSA surveillance Now that we have enough details about how the NSA eavesdrops on the internet, including today's disclosures of the NSA's deliberate weakening of cryptographic systems, we can finally start to figure out how to protect ourselves. For the past two weeks, I have been working with the Guardian on NSA stories, and have read hundreds of top-secret NSA documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. I wasn't part of today's story – it was in process well before I showed up – but everything I read confirms what the Guardian is reporting. At this point, I feel I can provide some advice for keeping secure against such an adversary. The primary way the NSA eavesdrops on internet communications is in the network.
Sun Myung Moon Sun Myung Moon (Korean 문선명; born Mun Yong-myeong; 25 February 1920 – 3 September 2012) was a Korean religious leader, business magnate and media mogul. A self-proclaimed messiah, Moon was the founder of the Unification Church and of its widely noted "Blessing" or mass wedding ceremony. Moon's extensive business interests included News World Communications, an international news media corporation which founded The Washington Times and owns other media in several countries, and Tongil Group, a South Korean business group (chaebol) active in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, tourism, and publishing.
Do-Not-Track Movement Is Drawing Advertisers’ Fire Do Not Track mechanisms are features on browsers — like Mozilla’s Firefox — that give consumers the option of sending out digital signals asking companies to stop collecting information about their online activities for purposes of targeted advertising. First came a stern letter from nine members of the House of Representatives to the Federal Trade Commission, questioning its involvement with an international group called the World Wide Web Consortium, or W3C, which is trying to work out global standards for the don’t-track-me features. The legislators said they were concerned that these options for consumers might restrict “the flow of data at the heart of the Internet’s success.” Next came an incensed open letter from the board of the Association of National Advertisers to Steve Ballmer, the C.E.O. of , and two other company officials.
The Brain's Highways: Mapping the Last Frontier Frontiers are in short supply. No explorer will again catch that first glimpse of the Pacific Ocean with “wild surmise,” take the first steps on the moon, or arrive first at the Challenger deep – the remotest corners of the earth are now tourist attractions. Even in science, great mysteries have fallen – life itself has gone from being the subject of metaphysical speculation about vital substances to the biophysical understanding of cellular processes. A Browser To Keep The NSA From Snooping On You Concern over personal privacy in the era of NSA spying revelations has reached something of a Code Orange. Earlier this summer, the Pew Research Center reported that for the first time since the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, more Americans fear an assault on their civil liberties than terrorism. But where we might have been stocking up on duct tape and canned soup a decade ago, today we’re changing our online habits: The percentage of Americans who are disabling cookies and adjusting browser privacy settings jumped 12% and 7% in the wake of the Edward Snowden leaks. It’s in this climate of guardedness that a group of India-based developers has designed a new kind of browser for the privacy-conscious. Using Chromium, an open source browser project that provides the underpinnings for Google’s Chrome, the Epic browser features protections meant to keep out snooping governments, as well as private companies looking to make a buck off your data.
New Federal Standards Offer Unprecedented Protections to LGBTI Prisoners Last week, the Department of Justice released the long-awaited Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) regulations, representing the first time that the federal government has issued national standards to help end sexual abuse in correctional facilities. The regulations are two years late and a lot of harm has been done in their absence, but now they will help protect important constitutional and human rights and ensure safe and fair correctional facilities that assist prisoners in rehabilitation rather than needlessly brutalizing them. This is the final of three blogs marking the occasion. Yesterday the Department of Justice (DOJ) released the long-awaited National Standards to Prevent, Detect, and Respond to Prison Rape. These standards – the first of their kind—create an historic opportunity to put an end to the epidemic of sexual abuse in prison, which disproportionately affects prisoners who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or have intersex conditions (LGBTI).
Model Ubah Hassan Raises An Umbrella To Help East Africa Photo Courtesy of Oxfam America Ubah Hassan’s modelling career is marked with Ralph Lauren campaigns and Steven Meisel editorials.
