Seeing all of these videos of people skating on thin ice - literally - and made me curious about when it's safe to skate on frozen bodies of water.… Image
A tale of Dutch ice skaters, in two acts:

Act I:
Good video showing how to rescue yourself if you fall through ice. First rule, spread out arms and legs to keep from fully submerging or sinking, and calm yourself. The initial shock to body will subside, allowing you to get your wits. (h/t @djweitzner)

Story in 3 acts. 1) People publishes sympathetic story about Axios reporter's relationship w/ Biden aid who has cancer. 2) Turns out People scooped Politico on story. 3) Nope. It turns out Biden aid threatened Politico reporter before taking story to People to undermine Politico
If you're wondering about the difference between how People portrayed the story and how Politico planned to portray it: On left Politico Playbook snippet, on right People story
"After Vanity Fair published this account [of how Ducklo threatened the Politico reporter by telling her "I will destroy you"], the White House announced that Ducklo would be suspended for one week."

With regard to news that hacker remotely accessed control system for water treatment plant in Florida to increase lye level, it's no surprise these are accessible online. Have been for yrs. But it sounds like they maybe didn't have 2-factor authentication set up to protect it
Here's a story I wrote in 2012 about critical industrial control systems accessible over the internet and easily discovered through a Shodan search…
And in 2013 I wrote about a researcher who used Masscan to find systems using port 5900 (the port used by VNC and TeamViewer remote-management software). He found 30,000 connected systems that did not require authentication to access them…

Wife of US diplomat who killed teen in UK while driving on wrong side of road was working for a US intelligence agency, as was her husband, her lawyer says, and that’s why she fled the UK after the accident.…
Previously it had only been known that her husband was working for US gov at a Royal Air Force base in Croughton, England — a base known to be used by US intel agencies. The revelation raises questions about whether she should have had diplomatic unity to avoid prosecution in UK.
A 1995 agreement w/ US stipulates that American staff at Croughton base can’t claim diplomatic immunity to avoid prosecution. British gov was told the woman was the spouse of a diplomat. But if she was an intel employee at Croughton, she should not have been allowed to leave UK.

Russian doctor who treated Navalny after poisoning has died suddenly in the intensive care unit where Navalny was treated. Reports say his blood pressure shot up to 250 suddenly, before he died of a heart attack…
The news of the Russian doctor's death reminds me of this clip from last month, showing another doctor and ally of Navalny playing the piano as police raided her apartment
This piece says that the 55 yr old Russian doctor who died this wk had lost all his family members in a year, including both parents. The implication is that he was under a lot of stress and this may have led to the heart attack.…

Interesting piece. John Sullivan (aka Jaydenx) posted one of most compelling videos of insurrection that showed him alternating between being part of mob and telling police he was media covering it (he told Capitol police repeatedly in vid that they should not resist the crowd)
This is the video that JaydenX took during the insurrection where he goes back and forth between being a part of the insurrection
“There has never been a clean way to delineate professional journalists from everyone else...Defining [it] too narrowly risks excluding freelancers and correspondents from nontraditional outlets; defining it too broadly could mean including anyone w/ a cell phone and YouTube acct

SolarWinds hackers who breached federal court system “probably gained access to the vast trove of confidential information hidden in sealed documents, including trade secrets, espionage targets, whistleblower reports and arrest warrants”
“Until recently, even the most secretive material—about wiretaps, witnesses and national security concerns—could be filed electronically. But that changed” after SolarWinds breach. Under new rules highly sensitive documents have to be printed out and hand-delivered to courthouse
“Criminal, civil and bankruptcy filings are believed to have been compromised, but not the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court system, which handles national security surveillance warrants, according to the court employees.”
