Scottish Parliament Shuts Down Far Right Groups Reader 08/02/2017 (Wed) 07:56:09 Id: f18ec8 [Preview] No. 1269 [Reply]

Archived version: https://archive.is/ArFju

>Right wing Vanguard Britannia’s flurry of propaganda activity included putting up posters and fliers in Arbroath to convince people to support their cause.

>The group has blamed Jews for being responsible for “pushing non-white immigration into white countries” and calls for the immediate ban on all immigration from countries “that are not European or of European descent”.

>North East Scotland Conservative MSP Liam Kerr lodged a motion in parliament to condemn the group and reiterate the UK and Scotland “value a free, open and tolerant society which welcomes people of any background or faith”.

>He said: “The extremist propaganda that Vanguard Britannia has been distributing is recent days is appalling, and it’s no wonder that Angus residents were so angered to see it in their area. “There is no place in Scottish society for groups such as this, and as representatives in the Scottish Parliament I felt it was important that we sent out a message that we would not tolerate their views.

Senate Introduces Bill To Shutdown Websites Which Host CP Reader 08/02/2017 (Wed) 07:51:28 Id: c9bebc [Preview] No. 1267 [Reply]
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/true-crime/wp/2017/08/01/senate-launches-bill-to-remove-immunity-for-websites-hosting-illegal-content-spurred-by-backpage-com/?utm_term=.da0f0492c291
https://archive.is/NriCq

>The Senate on Tuesday introduced an amendment to a law that protects the hosts of websites from liability for content posted by others to go after sites such as Backpage.com that have been criticized for facilitating child sex trafficking.

>The bill, titled the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act of 2017, would amend the Communications Decency Act. It is sponsored by Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and a bipartisan group of 19 other senators, some of whom served on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, which focused on Backpage.com in its probe of online sex trafficking. The subcommittee, chaired by Portman, issued a report in January saying that Backpage “knowingly facilitated the criminal sex trafficking of vulnerable women and young girls” by editing ads posted by pimps to remove offensive language.

>Backpage has fended off many civil and criminal actions aimed at shutting down its sex-related ads by citing Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which states that no website “shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” Backpage has argued that it merely hosts ads created by others and so has no liability.

>“Stopping trafficking is one of the great humanitarian and human rights causes of the 21st century,” Portman said in a statement introducing the bill. “For too long, courts around the country have ruled that Backpage can continue to facilitate illegal sex trafficking online with no repercussions. The Communications Decency Act is a well-intentioned law, but it was never intended to help protect sex traffickers who prey on the most innocent and vulnerable among us. This bipartisan, narrowly-crafted bill will help protect vulnerable women and young girls from these horrific crimes.”

>“Until our investigation showed Backpage was actively facilitating sex trafficking, the company had repeatedly used the federal law that protects online platforms to escape accountability for the disgusting crimes it aided,” said McCaskill, a former prosecutor. “But even as we’ve helped deny Backpage its legal shield in these cases, we need a broader effort to stop the next Backpage, before it starts. And that’s what this bipartisan bill is all about—better protecting Missouri’s families from sex trafficking by making clear to any company considering going into business with sexual predators, that the law won’t protect them from responsibility.”

>In April, Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) introduced a slightly broader bill in the House which now has 101 co-sponsors. In addition to amending the Communications Decency Act, it also seeks to amend the federal criminal code to say that any website provider who publishes information from anyone, “with reckless disregard that the information … is in furtherance of” sex trafficking of a person under 18 “shall be fined … or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”

Jewtube will now not monetize or link to videos that are flagged by a team of SJWs as co controvesial. An algorithm will also stealth ban stuff that falls through the cracks.

Switch to webms and uploading videos to other sites. Html5 means we don't need them anymore. Teach your kids too, and don't let them waste tons of time unsupervised in a safe space.

Christards will ignore this. God sure works in mysterious ways. He loves watching as priests molest boys from every possible angle and through his omnipresence and omniscience he feels everything, and including the confused emptions and lust. What a pervert.

Reddit users re-enable Alien: Isolation’s VR mode with unofficial patch Reader 07/31/2017 (Mon) 06:21:25 Id: b5d7a0 [Preview] No. 1260 [Reply]
https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/07/fan-made-oculus-vr-patch-for-alien-isolation-now-available-for-download/

Although 2014’s Alien: Isolation was a well-written, beautifully stylish exercise in terror, it failed to sell in large enough quantity for publisher Sega to justify a sequel—something for which we are all lessened, because the game is an exquisitely crafted love letter to the Alien universe. It’s also—as can be attested by numerous Youtube reaction videos—pants-wettingly terrifying.
The game was released just before the consumer versions of the Rift and Vive VR headsets became available, but it had a hidden Rift DK2-compatible gameplay mode that could be enabled by editing a configuration file. The VR mode mostly worked—the camera clips through the player’s body a lot, and folks prone to VR sickness would likely get nauseated within minutes due to the lack of any kind of VR accommodation in the game’s design, but even in its limited unsupported form the VR mode was stunning—and provided an even more terrifying experience than playing on a regular screen.

First Human Embryos Edited in US Reader 07/29/2017 (Sat) 09:39:59 Id: 158cac [Preview] No. 1252 [Reply]
>The first known attempt at creating genetically modified human embryos in the United States has been carried out by a team of researchers in Portland, Oregon, Technology Review has learned.

>The effort, led by Shoukhrat Mitalipov of Oregon Health and Science University, involved changing the DNA of a large number of one-cell embryos with the gene-editing technique CRISPR, according to people familiar with the scientific results.

>Until now, American scientists have watched with a combination of awe, envy, and some alarm as scientists elsewhere were first to explore the controversial practice. To date, three previous reports of editing human embryos were all published by scientists in China.

>Now Mitalipov is believed to have broken new ground both in the number of embryos experimented upon and by demonstrating that it is possible to safely and efficiently correct defective genes that cause inherited diseases.

>Although none of the embryos were allowed to develop for more than a few days—and there was never any intention of implanting them into a womb—the experiments are a milestone on what may prove to be an inevitable journey toward the birth of the first genetically modified humans.

>In altering the DNA code of human embryos, the objective of scientists is to show that they can eradicate or correct genes that cause inherited disease, like the blood condition beta-thalassemia. The process is termed “germline engineering” because any genetically modified child would then pass the changes on to subsequent generations via their own germ cells—the egg and sperm.

Obamacare Stays : Republicans Fail To Repeal Reader 07/28/2017 (Fri) 08:27:25 Id: bfb1d6 [Preview] No. 1251 [Reply]
>The latest attempt to repeal the Obama-era healthcare act has failed after a dramatic night in the US Senate.

>At least three Republicans - John McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski - voted against the bill, which needed a simple majority to pass.

>President Donald Trump said the three had "let the American people down".

>The so-called "skinny" repeal, which would have scaled back some of the more controversial provisions, is the third failed attempt to repeal Obamacare.

>It would have resulted in 16 million people losing their health insurance by 2026, with insurance premiums increasing by 20%, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

>Obamacare v Republican plan compared 'Don't take away our healthcare' says Trump country

Shkreli Fraud Trial Coming To An End, Possible 20 Year Sentence Reader 07/27/2017 (Thu) 21:29:58 Id: 3c0489 [Preview] No. 1250 [Reply]
Martin Shkreli's fraud trial is wrapping up.

>Lawyers delivered closing arguments Thursday after a month of jury selection and testimony. Prosecutors called Shkreli a liar, while the defense said he acted in good faith and even made money for his investors.

>The 34-year-old former pharmaceutical executive is accused of cheating investors out of more than $11 million between 2009 and 2014 in what amounted to a Ponzi scheme. Shkreli, who has pleaded not guilty, faces up to 20 years in prison.

>The charges are unrelated to what made him famous: In 2015, he drew public outrage when he unabashedly raised the price of an HIV drug from $13.50 to $750.

>Shkreli is accused of mismanaging money at his investment funds Elea Capital, MSMB Capital and MSMB Healthcare, as well as while he was CEO of Retrophin (RTRX), a pharmaceutical company he founded in 2011.

>Prosecutors say he lied to investors at MSMB Capital and MSMB Healthcare about how well his investment funds were doing, and that he used money from Retrophin to help pay off MSMB investors, as well as his personal loans and other debts.

>Federal prosecutors spent more than four hours summarizing their fraud case. They called their evidence "devastating."

>"There's a huge difference between what the defendant is saying -- which are lies -- and what the truth is," Assistant U.S. Attorney Alixandra Smith told jurors. She said investors were kept in the dark about where their money was tied up.

>Shkreli's lawyer, Ben Brafman, has defended his client as an oddball genius who ultimately made his investors richer. He said during the trial that Shkreli never intended to defraud anyone.

North Korea Threatens To Nuke The US TODAY Reader 07/27/2017 (Thu) 09:06:43 Id: ee8869 [Preview] No. 1247 [Reply]
>US officials are concerned that a North Korean missile test launch will take place today.

>Government sources in South Korea told the Yonhap News Agency that transporter erector launchers carrying ICBM launch tubes in North Pyongan province have been moved by North Korea.

>Speaking anonymously, a US defense official said if a test was to go ahead it would be of either an intermediate-range missile or North Korea's ICBM - known as a KN-20 or a Hwasong-14, and would take place 'probably' today as North Korea celebrates Victory Day - the 64th anniversary of the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement.

>Experts assessed it could have put Alaska in range, bringing Pyongyang's long-held dream of a missile that can deliver an atomic warhead to the United States within reach.

>A South Korean government source told Yonhap: 'Movements by transporter erector launchers carrying intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launch tubes have been continuously observed in North Pyongan. 'There is a high possibility that the North may carry out (the test launch) around the July 27 armistice day.'

>A second US defense official confirmed the fears, adding: 'They're setting up for something.' If the launch goes ahead, it would be the second time Pyongyang has tested an ICBM after its July 4 rocket launch.
