what is the scenario they are doing all those exercises for ?
situation getting more nervous and dangerous in that region every week
when I started on the internet I had lists with IP numbers of servers on a page
dns and domainnames only came later
the copyrightholders want to go back to that
they want to marginalize copyrightinfringing sites like that
but it can bring down one of the most essential parts of the internet as we know it today
"The MPAA’s legal argument centers on the claim that DNS records are working as an index or directory rather than simply routing data. If that argument holds, then the DNS links could be vulnerable to the same takedown notices used to strike torrent links from Google searches. The net effect would be similar to site-blocking, making it as easy to unplug a URL as it is to take down a YouTube video. It would also cast DNS providers as legally responsible for all the sites on the web, the same way YouTube is responsible for every video uploaded to its network. For many providers, simply managing the flood of notices might create a logistical nightmare.
why Russia thinks it can bully its borderstates militarily
into becoming a member of their socalled security alliance
in which you see why Ukraine is the missing domino as are uzbekistan, Georgia and azerajan
while trying to keep them from joining NATO
and also here you will that the whole geopolitical map changes when Ukraine joins NATO or is linked to it
because if you are linked to it, you are linked to the US and the US has the biggest military machine (even if it doesn't want to use it so massively as it did several times)
and you don't have to be afraid anymore of all those Russian troops at your border because there is a much greater and better shield once they begin to understand that that is necessary to keep the peace - even a cold war peace
and luckily Putin is doing is utter best the last year to convince even the most outspoken defenders of appeasement that it won't work and that Putin is clearly looking for a fight somewhere - the only question is where and when
it means that if this continues trust in anything Russian will be gone - this is the speed with which things can change - as we have seen in 2008 here during the financial crisis - wednesday you were still a major bank and on friday you were broke
sorry guys if you are still living in dreamland but it is time the hard reality begins to settle in
"I wish I was exaggerating, but I’m not. The Ohio Replacement Program was conceived to modernize the sea-based part of the nation’s nuclear force — the only part of that force that is certain to survive if Russia, China or some other major nuclear power launches a surprise attack in, say, 2050. The reason why is that the Navy’s ballistic-missile subs patrol silently beneath the surface of the world’s oceans, where enemies cannot find them; the Air Force’s bombers and silo-based missiles, on the other hand, are in known locations that can be easily targeted
the article shows some interesting things.
First it was said that these agreements were so secret that they were hardly communicated about in PWC but here we have some-one who had access to them in a database and was not implemented in setting them up becasue he was disgusted by them.
Secondly he took them with him when he left the firm (like Snowden) but nobody checked what he did, what he knew and what he took with him, even if there were documents that were considered highly secret
third he lost control over the documents and who got them and who did something with them just as Snowden lost control over his documents in which parts are going around the world
fourth there are others and they are hunting them down, one after another and I only hope for them that those who have used the documents have found all the obvious and secret indicators that will facilitate their job (one stupid but efficient trick is to change a letter in each copy)
I imagine listening to Sesame street for 18 hours every day makes you so mad you just want to get out of there
very interesting idea
but they are not a million .....
but in present days you don't need to be with millions to have an impact (you need to have the attention of the media - even for the wrong reasons)
it is easier if they are just plain nazi's and difficult if they have gone into deep undercover (of the simple people who are not nazi's but disturbed by ISIS and militant islamic priests and movements)

"Sony Pictures has contacted some US news outlets in an attempt to limit the damage caused by the hacking of its internal computer system last month.
The studio, its letter informed them, "does not consent to your possession... dissemination, publication... or making any use of the stolen information".
this looks like Mensura here with me :)
but than the press will only link to other media using the information or talking about unconfirmed rumors without even mentioning the leaks
Danmark has told the UN panel who is responsable for dividing the North Pole that they don't agree with their attributed piece of the cake and that they want lots more from Russia (sending troops to the North Pole and setting up more military installations around it) and Canada
there is no sense waiting for a consensus that will never arrive because the interests are too different to arrive at any kind of meaningful compremise - also the Putin strategy of trying to keep NATO from doing something meaningful in Ukraine is based upon the premise that they will always find compromise more important than letting each member decide for itself what it is going to do to help or not help Ukraine
Now it will be much more difficult for Putin to stop NATO from helping and supporting Ukraine because the vetopower of power to slow down or stop any meaningful decision of individual states is gone
The eastern european states will start helping each other and Ukraine in the first place meaning that we will have after some time a fortified intertwined eastern border not only linked to NATO but also to each other
and as the real power is based in Putins mind of military power this is may stabilize or even change the battlefield in Ukraine and make it less likely that individual eastern states are impressed by his succession of military provocations and exercises at their borders
meanwhile Russia keeps sending new military hardware to the border with Ukraine and afterwards into Ukraine bit by bit, day after day (of which some columns are going to Mariupol)
what did you expect
I am an activist
and my fight for privacy and security is independent from my political views - always have been - because it is the only way to make coalitions that can change things
but for now
I am on strike
trying to prevent collissions from civil aircraft with unidentified Russian military aircraft flying without transponders (sending signals to know what they are doing like the 9-11 terrorists did) and not responding to any demand for identification or information from the airtrafficcontrollers
one day there will be a collission and what will happen than
joke of the day in a place where there is hardly any time to joke because there is nothing to joke about
this is what they are writing on their tanks
this is what they are saying on their social media
this is one of the several columns rumored to be heading to Mariupol
or somebody thought that Putin didn't want to take Mariupol and gave up on the idea ?
what will the rest of the world do if he starts attacking Mariupol ?
