NSA files decoded: Edward Snowden's surveillance revelations explained

NSA files decoded: Edward Snowden's surveillance revelations explained
Two factors opened the way for the rapid expansion of surveillance over the past decade: the fear of terrorism created by the 9/11 attacks and the digital revolution that led to an explosion in cell phone and internet use. But along with these technologies came an extension in the NSA’s reach few in the early 1990s could have imagined. Details that in the past might have remained private were suddenly there for the taking. Chris Soghoian Principal technologist, ACLU NSA is helped by the fact that much of the world’s communications traffic passes through the US or its close ally the UK – what the agencies refer to as “home-field advantage”. The Snowden documents show that the NSA runs these surveillance programs through “partnerships” with major US telecom and internet companies. The division inside the NSA that deals with collection programs that focus on private companies is Special Source Operations, described by Snowden as the “crown jewels” of the NSA.

USA TODAY | BEHIND THE BLOODSHED: THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICA’S MASS KILLINGS To analyze mass killings, USA TODAY used the FBI's definition: four or more killed, not including suspects, in an event. The killing may stretch over a day or more and some distance, especially if it includes killings committed in flight or against targeted people. It does not include an extended "cooling-off period" to distinguish this kind of crime from the acts of serial killers. Unlike gun control advocates who just count shootings, USA TODAY analyzed all mass killings, regardless of weapon. USA TODAY began by collecting the FBI's Supplemental Homicide Reports for 2006-11. USA TODAY cross-checked each FBI report with local news reports and sometimes with local law enforcement agencies. USA TODAY also found 26 mass killings not recorded in FBI data. Finally, USA TODAY included several other cases not reported by the FBI, including: One on a U.S. military base. USA TODAY did not include events if deaths stemmed from negligence, such as drunken driving, even if someone was convicted.

Choice and chance: When the gunman walked into Pulse, those in his path had only a heartbeat to react | Orlando nightclub shooting June 20, 2016 It is 2 a.m., half an hour until closing time in the 4,500-square-foot club. Under the strobe lights, to the throb of reggaeton, more than 300 people crowd the bar, cash out tabs, squeeze in one last dance. When the shooting starts, people tumble over one another, trying to get out. Near the stage, Patience Carter drops to the floor and scoots backward. They make it outside. They can wait for police. “We gotta get Tiara.” They push back into the club. Back by the bar, Yvens Carrenard, 29, is just steps away from a storage room the size of a walk-in closet. The shooting doesn’t stop. “I could see the shooter, there, just shooting people.” On the dance floor, Brenda Marquez McCool tells her son: Get down. Joe Galligan, 24, is on the floor, waiting for his moment to run. A break in the gunfire. He makes it out. Jason Gonzalez, 33, wrestles his way outside, thinking his friends Shane Tomlinson and Angel Colon are right behind him. Shane, 34, is shot through the back. “Shh.

Guido Carli | Complotti Occorre adesso introdurre un lungo discorso su Enrico Cuccia, per studiare le diverse strade che imboccarono lui e Raffaele Mattioli e scandagliare meglio le loro personalità. Mattioli era un fautore del “capitalismo ordinato”, come lo chiama Giorgio Galli, Cuccia invece era fautore di un capitalismo “proteso verso la rivincita”. Sia Mediobanca (Cuccia) che Comit (Mattioli) dipendono dall’IRI, vale a dire dallo Stato. Cuccia riesce a portare nel suo “salotto”, oltre al fior fiore dell’imprenditorialità italiana (dagli Agnelli ai Pirelli), la potentissima Banque Lazard che opera lungo l’asse Parigi-Londra-New York, mettendo a profitto l’amicizia che ha stretto durante la famosa missione del ‘42 con il grande banchiere ebreo Andrè Meyer. Mattioli e Cuccia sono agli antipodi per quanto riguarda la loro attitudine nei confronti delle grandi famiglie imprenditoriali. Il Galli scrive: “Enrico Cuccia è stato di volta in volta dipinto come un angelo o un demonio. La vita La missione a Lisbona

Le web-documentaire Raconter la réalité Raconter la réalité avec les moyens mis à disposition par les nouvelles technologies est un privilège que peu encore ont su mettre à profit. Le web-documentaire est un genre qui n’est pas encore défini, qui est multiple et qui dépasse au niveau de la narration tous les médias précédemment utilisés. Aspects généraux Le web-documentaire puisqu’il n’est pas clairement défini est certainement un exercice né avec le web. Les principales caractéristiques identifiées pour les web- documentaires sont tout d’abord une audace dans le sujet abordé. Aspects logistiques Modèle économique De la même manière que le documentaire classique, le web-documentaire n’est pas très facile à financer. Questions techniques Le web-documentaire, par sa complexité d’association de différents medium (sons, images, vidéos, graphiques) rend l’utilisation de Flash souvent obligatoire.

Dal libro di Roberto Fabiani Dal libro di Roberto Fabiani I Massoni in Italia Editoriale l'Espresso L'unificazione fra le obbedienze di Palazzo Giustiniani e Piazza del Gesù Eppure come nel primo triennio della sua gran maestranza aveva colto il frutto maturo del riconoscimento da parte della Gran Loggia Unita d'Inghilterra, anche all'inizio del secondo triennio Salvini realizzò un grosso successo che aveva tutte le caratteristiche per essere definito storico: la riunificazione con la Massoneria Universale di piazza del Gesù. In pochi anni Bellantonio aveva fatto dimenticare la controversia circa la legittimità storica del suo gruppo e aveva messo insieme 3.500 fratelli distribuiti in circa 200 logge. Può sembrare un particolare poco importante, ma non è così.

The day we discovered our parents were Russian spies | World news Tim Foley turned 20 on 27 June 2010. To celebrate, his parents took him and his younger brother Alex out for lunch at an Indian restaurant not far from their home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Both brothers were born in Canada, but for the past decade the family had lived in the US. The boys’ father, Donald Heathfield, had studied in Paris and at Harvard, and now had a senior role at a consultancy firm based in Boston. Their mother, Tracey Foley, had spent many years focused on raising her children, before taking a job as a real estate agent. To those who knew them, they seemed a very ordinary American family, albeit with Canadian roots and a penchant for foreign travel. After a buffet lunch, the four returned home and opened a bottle of champagne to toast Tim reaching his third decade. At the door, she was met by a different kind of surprise altogether: a team of armed, black-clad men holding a battering ram. Their real names were Andrei Bezrukov and Elena Vavilova. Tim agrees.
