PRISM (surveillance program)
Below are a number of slides released by Edward Snowden showing the operation and processes behind the PRISM program.

7 Ways to Reclaim Your Digital Privacy Instant messages seem fleeting, but they're not. The messages are stored, at least briefly, on the IM service provider's servers, and, unless you delete them, on your machine and your partner's. And unencrypted messages are vulnerable to interception as they travel from your device through your ISP's network to your IM service provider (Google, AOL, Yahoo, Microsoft, or whomever) and then out to your friend's computer. But does anyone actually snoop on IM conversations? Routine Fix: Delete your chat records, in case anyone gets hold of your phone or laptop. Extreme Fix: The gold standard in IM encryption is OTR, or Off The Record (not to be confused with Google's proprietary Off The Record chat feature, which isn't secure). The content of your emails can be less revealing than the metadata—the record of which contacts you correspond with and how often. Extreme Fix: People who truly need to guard their communications use PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) when they email each other.

Accounting in Estonia • Arrak accounting -business accounting Facebook Marketing: How To Get Page Likes, Engagement & Blog Traffic Everyone is looking for the formula on how to break through and get more blog traffic and engagement from Facebook. This is your Facebook marketing game plan for how you can get your blog content in more Facebook news feeds. Facebook is the holy grail of traffic for websites. Almost 80% of all referral traffic to the biggest websites in the world comes from Facebook and Google. If you can figure out how to get your content spread and shared in Facebook and in social media, you stand to benefit from a significant number of organic visitors. Not only that. First thing first. You ultimately depend on Facebook algorithms to reach the people who like your page, but Facebook doesn’t care about you. There is a strong likelihood that your content goes completely unnoticed in the busy Facebook news feed. The organic distribution of page’s posts is gradually declining as Facebook tweaks their algorithm and we might soon see the end of organic reach – ZERO organic reach! It’s a great business model.

That's one hell of a regional preference Facebook will soon rely on Instagram for the majority of its ad revenue growth When Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger announced last month they were stepping away from Facebook, there was a collective gasp: Instagram’s future was suddenly at risk. So is Facebook’s. So far, Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram has been a total success — one of the biggest of the internet era. But Instagram isn’t just a nice thing for Facebook to have around. Facebook’s ad business has been growing rapidly for years, and that has helped it become one of the world’s most valuable companies. Last quarter, Instagram generated an estimated $2 billion, or about 15 percent, of Facebook’s $13 billion in ad revenue, according to estimates from Andy Hargreaves, a research analyst with KeyBanc Capital Markets. Instagram is an incredibly important part of Facebook’s future, and Facebook and CEO Mark Zuckerberg are now under pressure to make sure their prized acquisition doesn’t go off the rails with its co-founders out of the building.

Flying & Static Aircraft | Planes of Fame Air Museum The Planes of Fame Air Museum collection now numbers close to 160 aircraft. The majority of these are maintained in pristine condition and are on display throughout the Museum – either at the Chino or Grand Canyon campuses. Through the generosity of the many people who donate funds to the museum and the dozens of volunteers who contribute their time to restore and maintain the aircraft, many of these rare warbirds have been restored to flight. Our collection spans most of the Twentieth Century. Throughout the year, many of our flying aircraft depart the Museum to participate in airshows, military base open houses, various public events, or are engaged in the making of film and television productions. The table below allows you to browse the entire collection.

10 Amazing Examples of Mind Over Matter While we often think of our bodies and minds as two distinct entities, it turns out they are much more entwined than we might assume. Researchers are continually finding evidence that the brain has a distinct power to manipulate the body’s physiology. As these 10 examples show, the mind/body connection can work in our favor or detriment, depending on our knowledge of a situation and our ability to control our thoughts. 10. Judging by their ability to meditate for hours on end, to abstain from food for days, and their vows of silence, most us would agree that Tibetan Monks have better control over their minds and bodies than the average person. In one of the most notable exhibits of their skills, a group of Tibetan monks allowed physicians to monitor the monk’s bodily changes as they engaged in a meditative yoga technique known as g Tum-mo. During the process the monks were cloaked in wet, cold sheets (49 f / 9.4 c) and placed in a 40 f (4.5 c) room. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.

Word Cloud Generator How the Word Cloud Generator Works The layout algorithm for positioning words without overlap is available on GitHub under an open source license as d3-cloud. Note that this is the only the layout algorithm and any code for converting text into words and rendering the final output requires additional development. As word placement can be quite slow for more than a few hundred words, the layout algorithm can be run asynchronously, with a configurable time step size. Los 5 venenos blancos que comes todos los dias | Despierta, vivimos en una mentira En nuestra dieta existen alimentos que deberían ser llamados “veneno”, porque tienen poco valor nutricional y hasta pueden ser perjudiciales para nuestra salud. Conocidos como “venenos blancos”, el azúcar refinado, la sal y las harinas refinadas, entre otros, son causantes de diferentes enfermedades que son consideradas graves, pues son degenerativas, como la diabetes, la hipertensión arterial y hasta el cáncer. 1.- La Sal de mesa refinada. La industria decidió un día convertir la sal cristalina natural en simple cloruro sódico (la sal refinada de hoy), porque los científicos de la época afirmaron que los demás elementos que contenía (minerales esenciales y otros oligoelementos) eran innecesarios y bastaba el cloruro sódico para salar los alimentos. 2.- Azúcar refinada. El azúcar refinada no tiene proteínas, ni vitaminas, no tiene minerales no tiene enzimas, no tiene micro elementos, no tiene fibra, no tiene grasas y no es de ningún beneficio en la alimentación humana. 3) Harina refinada.

Quitting the five tech giants: Could you really flee Facebook? Why social media fatigue is spreadingDan Patterson and Jason Hiner discuss how early adopters of social media are turning away from it, and what that could mean for the future of Facebook, Twitter, and other social platforms. Welcome to Day 2 of our series about quitting the Big Five. Yesterday, we looked at whether I could pass up on all that Amazon has to offer. Today, it's Facebook.

Mathematical Masterpieces: Making Art From Equations Artist Annie Verhoeven has developed a very unusual technique to make her artwork, which she has termed “thread art.” The foundations of this thread-art technique are found in the traditional craft of lace-making. But the finished products are far from traditional: by completely reinventing the old methods and letting go of some of the traditions, lace no longer functions as just a piece of two-dimensional fabric, but becomes art in an enormous variation of sizes, shapes and dimensions. Mathematics are an integral part of these artworks. “Touch-graph” visualizes a computer program used to show connections between people.
