This Indian ISP won’t let its users use 128 bit or 256 bit encryption

Per its terms and conditions, YOU Broadband, the fifth largest Indian internet service provider (ISP), doesn’t let its subscribers use strong encryption. The ISP does technically allow VPN and encryption use… but only “up to the bit length permitted by the Department of Telecommunications,” which is 40 bits. It was over twenty years ago in 1997 that Ian Goldberg won $1,000 from RSA for breaking 40 bit encryption in just a few hours. He famously said then:

“This is the final proof of what we’ve known for years: 40-bit encryption technology is obsolete.”

Yet YOU Broadband, and other Indian ISPs, still insist that their users can’t use anything stronger than a twenty-year-broken key size.

Bonkers call to boycott Raspberry Pi Foundation over 'gay agenda'

Few could argue with what the Raspberry Pi has achieved. As well as inspiring countless youngsters into computing, the tiny affordable gadget is beloved by amateur and professional techies alike.

Yet a completely batshit crazy petition, even by change.org standards, begs to differ. One "NoRottenPi" is calling for a boycott of the charity on the grounds it apparently promotes "a gay agenda". The issue appears to be a small rainbow featured on the website.

At UN Meeting Near Auschwitz, Israel Calls for Minute’s Silence; Cuba Requests One for the Palestinians

Cuba’s delegate at a U.N. meeting an hour’s drive from the site of a Nazi extermination camp in Poland objected Tuesday to an Israeli request for a minute’s silence for Holocaust victims – then called for another one, for the Palestinians. The meeting of the U.N. Education Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) heritage committee had earlier passed an Arab-initiated measure denouncing Israeli activity in Jerusalem’s Old City and declaring it an “occupying power” in the city. Israeli ambassador Carmel Shama HaCohen noted the proximity of Auschwitz to the meeting and linked modern-day efforts to separate the Jewish people from their ancient capital to Hitler’s campaign.
Note: Except it wasn't an extermination camp. They had 11 orchestra, a hospital, soccer field, brothel, script money to purchase articles. When will this end. When you say it does.

Belzec 'death camp' was underground, Jews were electrocuted

The Belzec camp is underground, an electric crematorium. Here the floor resembled an enormous plate, it sank deep into a pool of water, a powerful electric current of millions of volts killed them all at once. The floor rose again, an electric current burned them until nothing was left, save a few ashes.1946 Eng. ed. of 'Black Book of Polish Jewry',p. 313
Note:This is what passes for proof of the 'holocau$t'. Dare to question this and you be imprisoned in many countries. holocau$t' absurdities

US quietly publishes once-expunged papers on 1953 Iran coup

Once expunged from its official history, documents outlining the U.S.-backed 1953 coup in Iran have been quietly published by the State Department, offering a new glimpse at an operation that ultimately pushed the country toward its Islamic Revolution and hostility with the West. The CIA's role in the coup, which toppled Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddegh and cemented the control of the shah, was well-known by the time the State Department offered its first compendium on the era in 1989. But any trace of American involvement in the putsch had been wiped from the report, causing historians to call it a fraud ... The 1,007-page report, consisting of letters and diplomatic cables, shows U.S. officials discussing a coup up to a year before it took place.

Make No Mistake, We Are Already at War in Syria

the reality is that a broad consensus has developed in the United States that enables serial interventionism with hardly a squeak of protest coming from the American people ... We are already at war with Syria even though the media and Congress seem blissfully unaware of that fact. We are also making aggressive moves intended to create a casus belli for going to war with Iran, and are doubling down in Afghanistan with more troops on the way, so Donald Trump's pledge to avoid pointless wars and nation-building were apparently little more than glib talking points

Germany okays deal to sell nuke-capable submarines to Israel

Germany's national security council approved the sale of three more nuclear-capable submarines to Israel for a combined price of some $1.3 billion, in a deal marred by controversy surrounding corruption allegations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Israeli Navy currently maintains a fleet of five state-of-the-art German underwater vessels of the Dolphin Class, which can be equipped with nuclear warheads, with a sixth due for delivery this year ... Submarines, unmatched in their ability to hide from enemy navies, have long been a major facet of Israel's defense policy. Israeli subs are reportedly armed with cruise missiles topped with nuclear warheads, affording the tiny Jewish state "second strike" capabilities ...
Note: And a first strike ability.....scares the hell out of me!
