Prince Andrew spared trial as underage ‘sex slave’ settles out of court

Virginia Roberts, 33, who claims she slept with the Duke of York three times in the early 2000s, agreed to settle a libel action she had brought against British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

Ms Roberts alleged she had been recruited by Ms Maxwell, daughter of the late tycoon Robert Maxwell, as an underage “sex slave” for billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, a convicted paedophile and former friend of Andrew.

When Ms Maxwell insisted it was all lies, Ms Roberts sued for libel.

The trial, which had been due to start yesterday in New York, was expected to deal with sensational allegations that Ms Roberts slept with Prince Andrew when she was 17.

First whiff of scandal hits Macron government

Richard Ferrand, general secretary of Macron's La République En Marche! party and minister for territorial cohesion, found himself the subject of a story published in satirical French paper Le Canard Enchaîné on Wednesday.

The newspaper -- the same one responsible for exposing the scandal that possibly ruined François Fillion's shot at the presidency -- reported that that Ferrand used his position as director of a health insurance company, Mutuelles de Bretagne, to benefit his family.

Naturally the French press have picked up the story and run with it, while pointing out that so far there is no proof that anything illegal was done.

Trump budget terminates funding for Aiken County MOX project

Funding for the Savannah River Site MOX facility would vanish under President Donald Trump's 2018 budget request, drawing criticism from fellow Republican lawmakers.

Trump's budget was released Tuesday. It proposes ceasing altogether last year's annual baseline funding of $340 million a year for construction. Instead, it calls for spending $270 million to terminate MOX, and another $9 million to pursue downblending, an alternative plutonium disposition method, according to Trump's budget request.

"The Budget proposes to terminate the Mixed Oxide (MOX) Fuel Fabrication Facility (MFFF) project and to pursue an alternative disposition method that will achieve significant long-term savings," the budget states.

Destruction and Deforestation of the Peruvian Amazon, Threats to Community Leaders

After over a year of deliberation and an independent satellite analysis commissioned by the RSPO, the Complaints Panel concurred with the complaint filed in December 2015 by the Shipibo community of Santa Clara de Uchunya that PdP had deforested over 5000 hectares of forests, including primary forests.

In so doing, it had failed to comply with RSPO’s restrictions on the conversion of primary forests to plantations, measures to address risks to forests considered of High Conservation Value (HCV) and requirements to disclose all information about planting and conversion plans to the RSPO and affected communities.

KATIE HOPKINS: The politicians now have hundreds of troops protecting them while telling the rest of us to Keep Calm, Stay 'United' and Carry On. But who is going to protect OUR kids from the terror THEY let in?

At this difficult time, Britain is faced with some hard questions the people charged with protecting us are going to have to answer sooner or later.

The Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi was known to the authorities.
He is believed to have travelled to the Middle East and become radicalised before returning to the UK to cause carnage at a gig in the city where he was born just days later.

As his father and brother were arrested in Libya, security force sources there said the father had links to Al Qaeda and another source claimed the brother 'was aware of all the details' of attack plans.

Yet he was allowed to walk back to the UK unchallenged.

He added that Saudis provided billions to the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to arm his war of aggression against Iran in the 1980s, saying, "Look what that bought them and the world."

US-led airstrikes kill 117 civilians in eastern Syria

US-led airstrikes in Syria's oil-rich eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr have killed at least 117 civilians, mostly women and children, a monitoring group says.

According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the strikes which began late on Thursday and continued through early Friday, targeted a series of residential buildings in the town of Mayadin.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis’s Iraq “War Crimes”

March 1, 2017

Retired Marine General James Mattis, a man who has served over forty years in the Marine Corps, was sworn in as the US Secretary of Defense in January 2017. Before his confirmation, he was under public scrutiny—for instance, for his controversial comments on “political Islam” at the Heritage Foundation in 2015—but, Dahr Jamail reports, the bigger concern is that Mattis “is clearly responsible for carrying out and/or aiding and abetting in several war crimes.”

The November 2005 Haditha massacre was well documented and received international attention, even if Mattis’s role in it has been largely forgotten. After a roadside bomb attack on a Marine convoy, a group of American soldiers rounded up 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians—including women, children, and elderly people—and shot them numerous times at close range. When the Marines were brought to trial, Mattis was the authority that dismissed the charges against them.

S. Korea OKs civilian contact with North Korea over malaria

South Korea will allow a civic group to contact North Korea over help in fighting malaria, the first government approval on cross-border civilian exchanges since North Korea's fourth nuclear test in January 2016, officials said Friday.

The announcement is a sign that the liberal government led by new President Moon Jae-in is trying to restart stalled civilian aid and exchange programs as a way to improve strained ties with the rival North. Moon's conservative predecessor, Park Geun-hye, hadn't endorsed any civilian contacts since the North's fourth nuclear test.

Seoul's Unification Ministry said the Seoul-based Korean Sharing Movement would be allowed to communicate with North Korea to discuss how to deal with malaria in North Korea.

USMC Veteran Facing Life In Prison Over 1 Oz. Of Cannabis To Treat His PTSD

Unfortunately indicative of the government’s misplaced, draconian priorities, the continued federal prohibition of cannabis has created tragic and heartbreaking consequences for vets using the plant to treat PTSD — and Lewandowski is a living example of the State’s tyranny.

After realizing that the meds were killing his liver, Lewandowski decided that it would be a good idea try marijuana as a treatment. He began growing 6 plants for his personal use.

In June of 2014, Lewandowski had a PTSD episode. His wife grabbed the kids and took them to the neighbor’s house where she called the police to get her husband some help.

However, as is the case in so many countless other incidents, police did anything but help.

Controversial Reddit Rival Voat May Be Shutting Down Because of Money Problems

Voat was designed as a substitute for Reddit: At time when Reddit is getting criticized for scrubbing “problematic” comments and conversations, Voat was supposed to a freer-speech alternative.

But now it may be shutting down because of financial difficulties. The site racked up $6,600 in hosting costs in April. Donations, advertisements and merchandise “only put a dent” in the costs, and the company doesn’t feel comfortable running a donation campaign to help. Voat has been unable to secure outside funding and struggles with accepting donations after PayPal cut it off for hosting “obscene” content.

In a throwback to the ’90s, NTFS bug lets anyone hang or crash Windows 7, 8.1

Those of you with long memories might remember one of the more amusing (or perhaps annoying) bugs of the Windows 95 and 98 era: certain specially crafted filenames could make the operating system crash. Malicious users could use this to attack other people's machines by using one of the special filenames as an image source; the browser would try to access the bad file, and Windows would promptly fall over.

It turns out that Windows 7 and 8.1 (and Windows Vista, but that's out of support anyway) have a similar kind of bug. They can be taken advantage of in the same kind of way: certain bad filenames make the system lock up or occasionally crash with a blue screen of death, and malicious webpages can embed those filenames by using them as image sources. If you visit such a page (in any browser), your PC will hang shortly after and possibly crash outright.

UK Government Using Manchester Attacks As An Excuse To Kill Encryption

Again, in case you're just joining us, requiring that internet companies "break their own security so that messages can be read by intelligence agencies" is the nice way of saying "kill real encryption." It means that these companies will be deliberately forced to leave vulnerabilities in encryption that will be a goldmine for hackers of all kinds, from foreign surveillance to online criminals.

And, so far, there is zero evidence that the Manchester attack had anything to do with encryption. And, even if it did, so what? If the UK forced companies to break encryption, people planning terrorist attacks would just switch to other encryption products that don't have corporate entities in the UK. Or they'd come up with other ways to communicate. It will do basically nothing to stop terrorist attacks, but will instead make it much, much easier for all sorts of people with nefarious intent to hack into the private communications of everyone.

All Android Phones Vulnerable to Extremely Dangerous Full Device Takeover Attack

Researchers have discovered a new attack, dubbed 'Cloak and Dagger', that works against all versions of Android, up to version 7.1.2.

Cloak and Dagger attack allows hackers to silently take full control of your device and steal private data, including keystrokes, chats, device PIN, online account passwords, OTP passcode, and contacts.

The attack doesn't exploit any vulnerability in Android ecosystem; instead, it abuses a pair of legitimate app permissions that is being widely used in popular applications to access certain features on an Android device.

Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology have discovered this attack, who successfully performed it on 20 people and none of them were able to detect any malicious activity.

Mr Kaspersky says no one has offered any evidence to support the claim which was totally unfounded. He has offered to testify in the US and says he is willing to hand over code to authorities so that his software can be scrutinised.

The accusations come from Level 3, a communications company that helps connect large-scale ISPs like Comcast or AT&T to the rest of the internet. According to the company, these six unnamed ISPs are deliberately degrading the quality of internet services using the Level 3 network, in an attempt to get Level 3 to pay them a fee for additional traffic caused by services like Netflix, a process known as paid peering.

Orwellian audio editing breakthrough allows your audio recordings to be edited like text to insert words you never said

New technology produced by computer scientists at Princeton University will have the ability to add words into a voice recording by editing the transcript of the recording. So let’s say you record the sentence “I like to drink coffee early in morning,” leaving out the word “the” between “in” and “morning.” The software, officially called VoCo, would automatically synthesize your voice and add the word “the” in the sentence, so that the recording never misses a beat.

“VoCo provides a peek at a very practical technology for editing audio tracks, but it is also a harbinger for future technologies that will allow the human voice to be synthesized and automated in remarkable ways,” explained Adam Finkelstein, a professor of computer science at Princeton.

I was immediately called an “idiot” by Bitcoin cultists who have become delusional in their faith that Bitcoin can only go up forever. Yet in less than two hours, Bitcoin crashed by almost $400, plummeting from almost $2750 to nearly $2350.

Meanwhile, Coinbase has become a total joke, seizing up private accounts and denying people access to their Bitcoins for days on end (possibly WEEKS, for all we know). The blockchain is being overrun with unprecedented trading volume, and the confirmation transaction premium keeps rising. It now costs an average of nearly $17 just to send any amount of Bitcoin to anyone, and many transactions are taking DAYS to get confirmed. In a panic selloff, it will easily cost you $100 just to sell any amount of Bitcoin.

Pentagon shifts blame to ISIS for 100+ civilians killed during US airstrike in Mosul

More than 100 civilians were killed when a US airstrike in Iraq triggered secondary explosions in March, according to a Pentagon investigation. Washington says Iraq requested the strike after Islamic State fighters began shooting at Iraqi forces.

The probe found that the March 17 airstrike on a building in Mosul's al-Jadida neighborhood triggered secondary explosions from devices planted by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) fighters.

Those secondary blasts, according to the military, caused the concrete building to collapse, leading to more than 100 civilian casualties, which likely represents the largest single incident of civilian deaths since the US air campaign against IS began in 2014.
