Echelon's SpookWords Generator For instance, Simon Davies, director of Privacy International, warns that the list of 1,700 suspicious "trigger words" will not outsmart the global surveillance system : "The Echelon system works on a very sophisticated system of word relationships, rather than strictly on keywords. Powerful artificial intelligence software is used to judge the relationship between words, and analyse strings of words." Davies advises protestors to send a whole series of original keyword transmissions through email, rather than relying on someone else's template. Forbidden acts never justified by “goodness” of intention The Fatwa on Terrorism & Suicide Bombings deals comprehensively with the core arguments that terrorists use and their tendencies to misuse Islamic teachings to defend their wrong actions. The Fatwa on Terrorism contains clear-cut rebuttals of the standard arguments made by the terrorists and goes as far as declaring those who commit terrorist acts disbelievers. The Fatwa on Terrorism clearly explains how terrorists such as the likes of Mujaahid Abu Hamza and Ismail Ibn Abdullah (formerly Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale) have nothing to do with Islam or its peaceful teachings nor can their actions be defended by using any verses of the Qur’an. The Fatwa instead declares people of their persuasion and their sympathisers as the modern day “Kharijites”, a deviant and heretical sect which came to being soon after the Prophet of Islam (saw), and which the Prophet (saw) foretold would rise again and again in future times, and provides numerous evidences in proof of this. “(O Muslims!)

Net Neutrality Protesters Call for Google to Stand Tall About a hundred net neutrality activists left their laptops at home Friday afternoon to gather at Google’s Silicon Valley headquarters to protest the search giant’s perceived betrayal of the movement for federal internet openness rules. The protest group’s ranks included eager young activists, long-time technologists, first-time protesters and the ever-present Raging Grannies, who led anti-Google sing-alongs set to classic Americana songs. At issue was a joint policy statement Google and Verizon issued on Monday that was widely interpreted as Google reneging on its years-long strong support for federal rules guaranteeing that users could use the apps, services and devices of their choice, without unfair interference from their ISPs or mobile carriers.
The Migrants Files - Detective.io The Migrants' Files project was launched in August 2013 by a group of European journalists who joined forces to accurately calculate and report the deaths of emigrants seeking refuge in Europe. This pan-European consortium of journalists is partially funded by the European non-profit organization Journalismfund.eu. Subscribe to the Migrants Files newsletter for quarterly updates. They know their lives are at risk, yet each year thousands of people from Africa, the Middle East and beyond — war refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants — leave their homes and try to reach the promised land of Europe. On the third of October 2013, more than 360 would-be emigrants drowned off the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa.
40 maps that explain the world Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources. I've included a link for further reading on close to every one. [Additional read: How Ukraine became Ukraine and 40 more maps that explain the world]

Are There Any Politicians Who Know What PROTECT IP Is About? Senator Hutchison Thinks It's About Net Neutrality Okay, this is just getting ridiculous. Last week, we wrote about Mark Lemley sending a letter to Rep. Anna Eshoo about the problems of PROTECT IP, and rather responding about that, Eshoo wrote him back about immigration. Then, we had another story about Senator Kristen Gillibrand receiving a similar letter complaining about PROTECT IP... and she sent back a letter talking about the unrelated "internet kill switch" legislation. And, in the comments to that post, Paul told us about his own letter protesting PROTECT IP, which was sent to Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison... and she wrote back about net neutrality:
