POW/MIA Flag is Now Being Considered Racist, Liberal Wants it Gone


Lions and statues and flags – Oh my!

Cecil the lion, of course, met his demise at the hands of an American dentist who paid $55,000 to hunt the king of the jungle.

Outrageous! Was there a liberal uproar when Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe ate a baby elephant for his 91st birthday?


After Dylan Roof murdered nine people in a historically black South Carolina church, people were consumed with the Democrat-inspired Confederate flag, because clearly the flag pulled the trigger.

Statues around the South featuring former confederate leaders have been defaced by ‘Black Lives Matter’ protesters and others because they somehow played a part in today’s society.


Now, liberals have found a new target.

This time, they’re focusing on the Prisoners of War/Missing in Action (POW/MIA) flag.

Because racism, of course.

From Twitchy:

It’s not just a follow-up to the Confederate flag controversy; Perlstein notes that even ultra-liberal presidential candidate Bernie Sanders posted an image of the flag on his Facebook page along with the message, “They are all heroes” after Donald Trump took a cheap shot at prisoner of war Sen. John McCain.

What’s Perlstein’s real beef with the flag? Because “Richard Nixon invented the cult of the ‘POW/MIA’ in order to justify the carnage in Vietnam in a way that rendered the United States as its sole victim” and to “paint the North Vietnamese as uniquely cruel and inhumane.”

“The moral confusion was abetted by the flag,” he continues: “the barbed-wire misery of that stark white figure, emblazoned in black.”

Tens of thousands of webcams – positioned in private homes, businesses and elsewhere – are posting private images online, according to a number of reports from technology-based websites such as TechCrunch.

“Last week, I sat at my computer and watched a young man from Hong Kong relaxing on his laptop; an Israeli woman tidying the changing room in a clothes store; and an elderly woman in the UK watching TV,” said a commentator at the Motherboard blog recently,

“All of these people were completely unaware that I was spying on them, thousands of miles away, through devices that were inadvertently broadcasting their private lives on the Internet.”

The images are on a website called Insecam, which uses computer software to troll the Internet for signals from security cameras and the like that are using the pre-programmed security codes that are installed by the manufacturers.

And left unchanged by the consumers.

That are simple like “admin” or “12345″ and easily can be broken.

Techcrunch reports that it investigated the feeds, and found many dead, likely because the owner discovered the online appearance and changed the pass-code.

“You can see some live cameras if you move away from the front page and start viewing cameras further afield …” said Techcrunch.

At the Tampa Tribune, Tom Jackson reported that he saw “cluttered family rooms and tidy kitchens. Vacant pool decks. A dock looking out on sparkling blue water. Lonely front porches. A blue-and-gold striped tropical fish. Several empty cribs. And one crib containing a blissfully snoozing toddler.

“To be clear: What Insecam’s designers have done falls ever so slightly outside the realm of hacking. Instead, its robot is simply coming through an unlocked back door. Keeping it out of our business is up to us.”

Turning cow poo into power is profitable for US farm

Plymouth (United States) (AFP) – For most farms, manure is a pungent problem. At Homestead Dairy, it smells like money.

The family-run American farm invested in a biogas recovery system which transforms cow poo and other waste into electricity.

Enough electricity, in fact, to power 1,000 homes, a service which the local utility company pays for handsomely.

But that’s just a side benefit.

“It works economically, but one of the main reasons we did it was to try to help take care of the odor control for the neighbors,” said Floyd Houin, whose family has owned the farm in Plymouth, Indiana since 1945.

“The land’s important to us also because we produce a crop for feeding cows. So we want to do everything we can to take care of the land and the water. We drink the same water as everyone else.”

Research Finds This Common Fruit Juice Improves Memory

memory orange juiceA group of researchers is claiming that drinking orange juice daily can improve your brain power if you are an elderly person. Surprisingly, it will take you just two months before you start noticing significant improvements in speed and reaction times and memory, according to the study.

These new findings are being attributed to flavonoids, natural compounds that are plentiful in orange juice. The study found out that these flavonoids help in the activation of signal pathways in the hippocampus, a brain region linked to learning and memory.

The Study

A study involved a team of researchers from Reading University in which healthy volunteers were asked to drink 500 ml of orange juice daily for eight consecutive weeks. Among the participants were 24 women and 12 men aged between 60 and 81 years. The researchers found significant improvement in their brain function. Improvements included memory retention, reaction time and verbal fluency.

On average, their ‘global cognitive function’ improved by 8% within the 8-week period.  However, the researchers stated that they were not advocating drinking an entire pint of orange juice every day. Nevertheless, they suggested that orange juice contains vital compounds essential for boosting the brain function.

Battery Attributes Can Be Used To Track Web Users

GIF Keyboard Maker Riffsy Raises $10M Series A

A team of European security researchers has published a paper analyzing how the battery life of mobile devices could be used to track web browsing habits of Firefox users on Linux, using the HTML5 Battery Status API (via The Guardian).

The specific method they expose in their paper has been fixed by Firefox as of June this year, after they filed a bug report pointing out inconsistencies in its implementation of battery level reporting across different platforms.

The paper, entitled The Leaking Battery: A Privacy Analysis of The HTML5 Battery Status API, also notes privacy concerns about an API that lets websites check the battery status of users without having to gain their permission to do so.

The researchers write:

The API does not require user permission to read the battery information, any website or third-party scripts included on them, can use the API. The API also does not require browsers to notify users when the battery information is accessed. That allows website and third-party scripts to access the battery information transparently – without users’ awareness.

The ostensible aim of the battery API is to allow websites to automatically switch from high power to energy-saving versions if they detect a user needs to conserve battery. However the researchers discovered that the way the API had been implemented by Firefox on GNU/Linux was problematic, allowing for “seemingly innocuous information” provided by the API to serve as a tracking identifier (aka a “new device fingerprinting vector”) — potentially allowing websites to track browsing activity across different sessions, such as private browsing modes or after clearing cookies.

Yahoo! website! ads! spaff! CryptoWall! ransomware! AGAIN!

Yahoo! has been used to spread ransomware to Windows PCs almost exactly a year after the previous big outbreak.

Adverts served on the Yahoo! homepage as well as the Yahoo! News, Sports, Celebrity, Finance, and Games websites, quietly loaded a script that ultimately exploited holes in Adobe Flash to infect vulnerable systems, according to Malwarebytes.

The attacked computers – potentially hundreds of thousands if not millions in number – were injected with either adware or the infamous CryptoWall ransomware, we’re told.

CryptoWall works by encrypting all the documents it can find on a computer system, and demands a ransom to restore the data. Victims have shelled out millions of dollars to decrypt and recover their files, according to the FBI.

Yahoo! said these latest malicious ads, which were booked by crooks, have been pulled from its network. “As soon as we learned of this issue, our team took action and will continue to investigate this issue,” Yahoo! said in a statement to The Register.

Malwarebytes said this fresh batch of dodgy adverts ran on the Yahoo! network between July 28 and August 3, which was when Yahoo! pulled the malicious content.
