Following the "revelation" of #WhatsApp chats of Bollywood actors, a short #thread on the #tech, #encryption #surveillance and #law. How did the police access the chats and what it means for privacy. 1/n
Messaging apps like #WhatsApp and @signalapp offer end-to-end #encryption. Incidentally, the protocol for both was designed by one of my favourite engineers and genius @moxie and his group.
Two key things to remember about accessing data -- is the data at rest (on your device) or in transit (when you hit the send message). If it's in transit, then e-to-e encryption makes its difficult to intercept. Only 10 agencies in India are notified to do this interception

Magna Carta: Birth of Constitution: #Constitution #magnacarta #democracy #law #England
England was going through a turmoil. Their ruler King John I was not considered a fit king.
Firstly, he raised the taxes unnecessarily on his people burdening them.

With no foreseeable end in sight, #Israel’s blockade on #Gaza not only runs afoul of international #law, but it has also already been on the radar of the #UN and #humanrights groups for well over a decade.
by @HomePalestine… #Palestine #FreePalestine
Today, few #Palestinians remain in the #fishing trade – and about ninety-five percent of these live below the #poverty line, with little hope of improvement.
by @HomePalestine… #Israel #FreePalestine
Just as with the last three major Israeli incursions into #Gaza, #Israel’s stated motive – to stop incoming projectiles – conceals a long-term ambition: to seize more land with fewer #Palestinians on it.

@SonnieJohnson well worth listening to your history lesson, your civics lesson, your vision, your #Why #Renaissance Demystifying Local Government vs. Federal. Excellent. I want @farmerdarrell to have a listen. We need a new party. I’m Caucasian, moved to Virginia from Vermont.
I suffered mightily at the hands of a local Progressive government, Violating my Right to Property Ownership, My Due Process Rights, My Constitutional Rights.…+
It Is Local Control that Failed Me.…+ And Nobody Cared.
I will be thinking about your message a long time 😎
I hope @realDonaldTrump invites you to speak and help shape our Future. All of us. 🙏🏼

1-Today we shall continue to dive deeper into the aspects of #Past #Life #Astrology.

And the very first word that comes to mind is #Karma.

#Karma is actually a poorly understood term.

Most people think of Karma and might think of punishment and retribution. (1/25)
2-The fact is Karma is like a #Cosmic, ongoing, Instruction Design of God.

Karma is rather concerned with #Evolution and #Growth.

@BabaRamDass used to often say, “May be the #Law of #Karma itself is #God” (2/25)

3-Just like Ether, Karma is all-embracing and has a myriad of #Manifestations

The #Cosmos operates at different levels of #Karma –from Personal Karma to the Karma of entire nations or communities. (3/25)

1) It's easy to forget that the ancient world was made up of real people with familiar hopes and fears; where life for many was a daily struggle against poverty, crime and disease. Let's remember one of them: Julia Restuta was a young girl that lived almost two millennia ago... Fayum portrait of a girl, Altes Museum
2) Julia lived in the ancient city of Salona, capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia (modern-day Croatia) - overlooking the Adriatic coastline. The city was a prosperous and bustling metropolis with a forum, theatre, amphitheatre, aqueducts and many public baths...
3) As a well-placed crossroads of trade and ideas, during Julia's lifetime the city was also becoming a centre of worship for an obscure eastern cult calling themselves Christians. A bishop named Domnius and his followers would be executed in Salona's amphitheatre in 304 AD..

1) We are taught that corruption is normal, even inherent.  Evil believes humans are inherently bad - because the alternative would be personal responsibility for choices that harm others.
2) A consistent philosophy requires equal application to all, including self. In contrast the might-makes-right leader can only project sanctimoniously, misdirect, and deflect.

Humans are Good until something Goes Wrong.
3) We don't have to be led by those who crave and flock to power while absolving themselves of responsibility and justifying their criminal acts with their distorted world view. We just need to recognize that we are the many, and they are the few.

Did you know...

That Portland #Police Association (#PPA) President Darryl Turner is also the President of #ORCOPS, the Oregon Coalition of Police & Sheriffs, which he helped launch in 2015?

#PortlandOregon #PortlandOR #PDX #PDXpolice #PoliceUnions #PoliceBrutality #PoliceReform Image
ORCOPS website says "ORCOPS uses the Portland Police Association office as a home base with an on-staff social media manager, in-house communications, and shared resources so our overhead is minimal."
Tom Perkins is the Secretary-Treasurer, who is also from the #PPA.

#pdx #gov ImageImage
#ORCORPS touts itself as saying that their "members are the only law enforcement advocacy group in Oregon with a proven history of influence and representation in the State legislature."

This means they like to be involved in law & policy making.

A brilliant legal conundrum used to test the reasoning of 1st century Roman lawyers: A barber does business on a roadside as people play ball nearby. Someone kicks the ball so hard it strikes the barber’s hand and he slices the throat of the person he is shaving. Who is to blame?
Vote and retweet! Conclusions from the 1st century will be posted tomorrow 👍 #roman #law
Conclusions in this thought-experiment are based on the Lex Aquilia - laws that provide compensation to individuals and owners of property injured through the fault of others. 'Culpa' or liability requires three criteria: 1) Damage committed 2) Causality and 3) Unlawfulness...

Beautifully written by my friend James Keeley, a Barrister who I admire greatly, please do help if you can.....

"The Law cannot become the possession of the rich, the powerful and the wealthy....

#LondonMarathon #Justice #LegalAid #Advocate #ProBono #Appeal #Crime #Law
The Law should be for all.

However, more than ever before the poorest and most vulnerable people in society are denied access to it.

I came from nothing to become a barrister. I never had a voice and wanted to give others the chance to speak through me.
Running the London Marathon for @WeAreAdvocate will be me doing what I have done all my life in giving all of myself to those who need it the most.

ADVOCATE gives a voice to the voiceless in that they do all they can to ensure that the most deserving receive representation.

"Washington, too, will continue to strive to ensure #Netanyahu, #Gantz, and the “200 to 300” other Israeli officials never see their day in court."

"But the #ICC is not entirely a legal platform. It is also a political institution that is subject to the interests and whims of its members"

"...the move would be so illegal under international #law that #Israel’s #AttorneyGeneral’s office warned #Netanyahu that doing so would be “indefensible” in front of the #ICC and would open up top #Israeli officials to prosecution."

If the authors of widely-aimed malware, like Flash exploit malvertising from a few years ago, were to include something like a 14% chance for an otherwise-successfully delivered payload to simply fail for no reason, they would be considerably less likely to get caught doing it.
Doing so would:
1. Cause public malware investigators to endlessly squabble among themselves because none want to be wrong yet, in a sense, 14% of initial tests of the alleged payload would produce an unexpected and differing result. Humans are dumb so many would stop there.
2. The malware authors in a malvertising campaign generally run their poisoned ads on large, popular websites. If, for example, advertising spots on Yahoo were purchased, and exploitative Flash ads were then displayed to Yahoo visitors, ...
