Google Allo : incognito in Snapchat style

Google Allo Messenger App

At is the new messaging app developed by Google. The incognito mode allows you to send encrypted messages, possibly by setting a timer. On expiry of the time, the text will disappear from the conversation.

At Google ‘s messaging app for iOS and Android announced at the recent Google I / O 2016, along with Google Duo . While waiting for the official release, which should take place in the coming weeks, the Android Police website received some pictures / screenshots taken from a preliminary version. You can then compare At Hangouts to find the differences.

During the event reserved to the developers, the Mountain View company has outlined the main features of the application. At allows you to send text, photos, stickers and emoji as other messaging app, but offers some unique features, including incognito mode similar to that of Chrome. For conversations it is used the encryption end-to-end principle that, unlike WhatsApp, is therefore not active by default. The background color changes, Google Assistant is disabled, notifications do not show the content of messages and conversations will only appear in the list of the name of the sender, not the preview of sent / received messages.

The most interesting feature are as ephemeral messages , like those of Snapchat. Chats incognito mode is a timer next to the name of the recipient and the user can set the expiration desired (5/10/30 seconds, 1 minute, 1 hour, 1 day and 1 week). You can not change the deadline for the messages already sent and the one set applies to all future messages, unless it is not changed by one of the two participants. Unfortunately it lacks a countdown indicating when the message will disappear from the history of the conversation. Here are some photos of incognito mode (screenshots are not permitted):

In the preliminary version is not an option for backup or cloud sync, then you will lose all the contents and history in case of reinstallation of Allo. Unlike Hangouts it is available instead the universal search within the app, and you can delete the messages from the history, as well as photos and videos from your smartphone, just like WhatsApp.

The latest concerns the ” adhesive .” At offers three pre-installed sticker pack, but 24 others are available for download (you can see a preview of each sticker pack). Some are animated and rather funny, like Julio the Bull , described as “a seducer at night and a junkie of the day Fitness”. It is however not sure that these stickers will be present in the final version of Allo.

Hundreds Of Thousands May Lose Internet In July

WASHINGTON (AP) – For computer users, a few mouse clicks could mean the difference between staying online and losing Internet connections this summer.

Unknown to most of them, their problem began when international hackers ran an online advertising scam to take control of infected computers around the world. In a highly unusual response, the FBI set up a safety net months ago using government computers to prevent Internet disruptions for those infected users. But that system is to be shut down.

The FBI is encouraging users to visit a website run by its security partner, http://www.dcwg.org , that will inform them whether they’re infected and explain how to fix the problem. After July 9, infected users won’t be able to connect to the Internet.

Most victims don’t even know their computers have been infected, although the malicious software probably has slowed their web surfing and disabled their antivirus software, making their machines more vulnerable to other problems.

Last November, the FBI and other authorities were preparing to take down a hacker ring that had been running an Internet ad scam on a massive network of infected computers.

“We started to realize that we might have a little bit of a problem on our hands because … if we just pulled the plug on their criminal infrastructure and threw everybody in jail, the victims of this were going to be without Internet service,” said Tom Grasso, an FBI supervisory special agent. “The average user would open up Internet Explorer and get ‘page not found’ and think the Internet is broken.”

On the night of the arrests, the agency brought in Paul Vixie, chairman and founder of Internet Systems Consortium, to install two Internet servers to take the place of the truckload of impounded rogue servers that infected computers were using. Federal officials planned to keep their servers online until March, giving everyone opportunity to clean their computers. But it wasn’t enough time. A federal judge in New York extended the deadline until July.

This is what happened:

Hackers infected a network of probably more than 570,000 computers worldwide. They took advantage of vulnerabilities in the Microsoft Windows operating system to install malicious software on the victim computers. This turned off antivirus updates and changed the way the computers reconcile website addresses behind the scenes on the Internet’s domain name system

Facebook Using Israeli Face Recognition Software On Every Photo You Upload!

Facebook Now Knows What You Look Like
As It Rolls Out Facial Recognition Software
Secretly

While you were sleeping

I am sure that the vast majority are unaware, as I was until just now, that Facebook has stealthily rolled out facial recognition software to create an amazingly large database of photos of you and I. And with every new photo that is posted by any Facebook user, the software will associate a name to a face, and record it in it’s massive databases. How much do you want to bet that the US Government is the main beneficiary of this information?

“Facebook has eroded the online privacy of millions of its users byswitching on facial recognition technology without telling them, a technology expert said today. The leading social networking website has ‘enabled’ a function that automatically identifies people in photos without their knowledge. The feature has been expanded from the United States to ‘most countries’, Facebook said on its official blog yesterday.

Its ‘Tag Suggestions’ feature uses facial recognition technology to speed up the process of labeling friends and acquaintances that appear in photos posted on Facebook.

So if a friend ‘tags’ you in one photo, the technology will automatically scan your face and then try and find matches among all their pictures. It will then suggest that they ‘tag’ these photos of you as well.

Tagged photos typically appear in your photo stream as well as in your friends streams, depending on your settings. When the function was launched in the U.S, Facebook contacted users directly a few weeks before – an action not taken in Europe. MORE

HOW TO DISABLE:

Sign into your Facebook account.

Click on Account on the top right of the page and then Privacy Settings on the drop-down menu.

Click on Customize settings.

Scroll down to ‘Suggest photos of me to friends’ and click Edit.

Change setting from Enabled to Disabled and save.

“Jew or Not Jew” app riles anti-racism group

(AP) PARIS – A French anti-racism group has threatened to sue Apple over an iPhone application called “A Jew or Not a Jew?” that allows users to consult a database of celebrities and public figures to determine whether they are Jewish or not.
SOS Racisme said the application, sold for 0.79 euro cents ($1.07) on the Apple Store France, violates France’s strict laws banning the compiling of people’s personal details without their consent.

jew or not jew app

Under the French penal code, stocking personal details including race, sexuality, political leanings or religious affiliation is punishable by five-year prison sentences and fines of up to euro300,000 ($411,870).

Such laws were enacted in the decades following the Holocaust, which saw some 76,000 Jews deported from Nazi-occupied France to concentration camps. Fewer than 3,000 returned alive.

In a statement, SOS Racisme called on Apple to remove the app the from its online store and be more vigilant about the applications it sells.

Apple France and its European headquarters did not immediately return several calls for comment.

The head of leading French Jewish group CRIF, Richard Prasquier, echoed SOS Racisme’s call for the immediate removal of the application.

“It’s not only shocking but also illegal,” Prasquier told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Wednesday. “In France, we make a very important distinction that doesn’t exist in the same way in the United States between the public and private spheres. If someone wants something as personal as his religion to remain private, it must remain that way.”

Johann Levy, a 35-year-old Franco-British engineer of Jewish origin, developed the application, according to Le Parisien newspaper. In an interview published Wednesday, Levy said he developed the app to be “recreational.

“I’m not a spokesman for all Jews, but as a Jew myself I know that in our community we often ask whether a such-and-such celebrity is Jewish or not,” he is quoted as saying.

“For me, there’s nothing pejorative about saying that someone is Jewish or not,” he said. “On the contrary, it’s about being proud.”

He said he compiled information about famous people around the world from various online sources.

Despite the French state’s attachment to secular values, the question of public figures’ religious affiliation continues to be a matter of some interest to the French public. On Google’s French search engine, when a user types the name of a French celebrity, a top suggested follow up word is “Jew?”

Prasquier said that while he didn’t think the phenomena suggested that France is more anti-Semitic than other countries: “because of our difficult historical memories here, we perhaps pay attention to such behavior more” than elsewhere, he said.

27 Years: No Deaths From Vitamins, 3 Million From Prescription Drugs

Over the past 27 years — the complete time frame that the data has been available —  there have been 0 deaths as a result of vitamins and over 3 million deaths related to prescription drug use. In fact, going back 54 years there have only been 11 claims of vitamin-related death, all of which provided no substantial evidence to link vitamins to the cause of death. The news comes after a recent statistically analysis found that pharmaceutical drug deaths now outnumber traffic fatalities in the US.

In 2009, drugs exceeded the amount of traffic-related deaths, killing at least 37,485 people nationwide.

The findings go against the claims of mainstream medical ‘experts’  and mainstream media outlets who often push the idea that multivitamins are detrimental to your health, and that prescription drugs are the only science-backed option to improving your health. While essential nutrients like vitamin D are continually being shown to slash your risk of disease such as diabetes and cancer, prescription pharmaceuticals are continually being linked to such conditions. In fact, the top-selling therapeutic class pharmaceutical drug has been tied to the development of diabetes and even suicide, and whistle blowers are just now starting to speak out despite studies as far back as the 80s highlighting the risks.

Mainstream medical health officials were recently forced to speak out over the danger of anti psychotic drugs, which millions of children have been prescribed since 2009. U.S. pediatric health advisers blew the whistle over the fact that these pharmaceuticals can lead to diabetes and even suicide, the very thing they aim to prevent. What is even more troubling is that half of all Americans will be diagnosed with a mental condition during their lifetime thanks to lack of diagnosis guidelines currently set by the medical establishment, of which many cases will lead to the prescription of antipsychotics and other similar medications.

In order to protect sales, the link between suicide and antipsychotic drugs was completely covered up by Eli Lilly & Co, the makers of Prozac. Despite research stretching as far back as the 1980s finding that Prozac actually leads to suicide, the company managed to hide the evidence until a Harvard psychiatrist leaked the information into the press. The psychiatrist, Martin Teicher, stated that the American people were being treated like guinea pigs in a massive pharmaceutical experiment.

Greedy and oftentimes prescription-happy doctors are handing out antipsychotic medication like candy to adults and young children alike. In 2008, antipsychotics became the top-selling therapeutic class prescription drug in the United States and grossing over $14 billion in sales.

Antipsychotic drugs are not the only dangerous pharmaceuticals. The average drug label contains 70 side effects, though many popular pharmaceuticals have been found to contain 100 to 125. Some drugs, prescribed by doctors to supposedly improve your health, come with over 525 negative reactions.

Ritalin, for example, has been linked to conditions including:

    Increased blood pressure
    Increased heart rate
    Increased body temperature
    Increased alertness
    Suppressed appetite

Perhaps the hundreds of negative side effects is part of the reason why the FDA announced last year that it is pulling more than 500 cold and allergy off the market due to health concerns. Prescription drugs kill more people than traffic accidents, and come with up to 525 negative side effects. Avoiding these drugs and utilizing high quality organic alternatives like whole food-based multivitamins and green super foods will lead to a total health transformation without harsh side effects and an exponentially increased death risk

Indoctrinate your children at Tea Party summer camp!

The St. Petersburg Times (via digby) has the amazing story of the 912 Project’s “Tampa Liberty School,” a liberty-themed “weeklong seminar” for schoolchildren ages 8-12.

Indoctrinate your children at Tea Party summer camp!
Indoctrinate your children at Tea Party summer camp!

If there’s one thing conservatives enjoy more than accusing liberals of doing the horrible things that conservatives actually do, it’s imitating the horrible things they have convinced themselves that liberals do. They convince themselves that the liberal media is an anti-conservative smear machine with no regard for the truth, and that the only purpose of journalism and art is propaganda, and so they create “BigJournalism.com.” They convince themselves that liberals are using public schools to indoctrinate our children into worshiping Barack Obama, and so they start a Tea Party Summer Camp, where our children will be properly indoctrinated into loving liberty.

At Tea Party camp, conservative writer Jeff Lukens will teach your children to say things like “America is good” and “I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.” (That is a mouthful for an 8-year-old!)

While Lukens is not familiar with public school curricula, he tells the Times, “I do know they have a lot of political correctness.” There will be none of that dreaded “political correctness” at this summer camp!

I can’t even write jokes about what the children will do at this camp, because the Tea Party people have predicted all of the jokes and made them real:

One example at Liberty: Children will win hard, wrapped candies to use as currency for a store, symbolizing the gold standard. On the second day, the “banker” will issue paper money instead. Over time, students will realize their paper money buys less and less, while the candies retain their value.

“Some of the kids will fall for it,” Lukens said. “Others kids will wise up.”

Another example: Starting in an austere room where they are made to sit quietly, symbolizing Europe, the children will pass through an obstacle course to arrive at a brightly decorated party room (the New World).

Red-white-and-blue confetti will be thrown. But afterward the kids will have to clean up the confetti, learning that with freedom comes responsibility.

Still another example: Children will blow bubbles from a single container of soapy solution, and then pop each other’s bubbles with squirt guns in an arrangement that mimics socialism. They are to count how many bubbles they pop. Then they will work with individual bottles of solution and pop their own bubbles.

“What they will find out is that you can do a lot more with individual freedom,” Lukens said.

What will children buy at the “store” if they already have candy, though? Is that the lesson? I’m so bad with candy-economics. (CASH4CANDY WILL PAY TOP DOLLAR FOR YOUR LOOSE CANDY!)

I have some really good ideas for other Tea Party Summer Camp activities:

The children will be rewarded for disobeying rules, because camp counselors have no authority under the 10th Amendment.
A child who accuses other children of bullying or teasing will be ignored unless he or she can produce video evidence.
One day the counselors will take all the children’s candy and give it to a fat, lazy kid who doesn’t have any candy, in order to teach them about the unfairness of wealth-redistribution.
In order to learn that there is no such thing as a free lunch, the children will not be given lunch.

See y’all at Tea Party camp!

Another Insane Slam On Teaching your children Morals, Respect and Self, European Heritage, and Liberty
