Technology: How to Be Invisible on the Internet – By Jeff Desjardins

How to Be Invisible on the Internet

Everywhere you look, concerns are mounting about internet privacy.

Although giving up your data was once an afterthought when gaining access to the newest internet services such as Facebook and Uber, many people have had their perspective altered by various recent scandals, billions of dollars of cybertheft, and a growing discomfort around how their personal data may be used in the future.

More people want to opt out of this data collection, but aside from disconnecting entirely or taking ludicrous measures to safeguard information, there aren’t many great options available to limit what is seen and known about you online.

Guyana is poised to once again become the breadbasket of the Caribbean and further afield, once plans to partner with a group of Brazilian investors bear fruit.

The proposal, which has to do with industrialising the agriculture sector, is projected to translate into a mega state-of the-art farm in the Intermediate Savannahs of Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), according to the Ministry of Agriculture.

The Mano Julio group out of neighbouring Brazil has already tested the soil type in the Intermediate Savannahs and had success with a crop of corn and soybean, and is expected to start cultivation again early next year.     Continue reading

US Trade War with China: Desperate Move to Save Western Empire – opinion

 By Andre Vltchek – Global Research, November 26, 2018

Most of those who have had a chance to witness Chinese internationalist mega-projects, clearly understand that the West is near to collapsing; it will never be able to compete with tremendous enthusiasm and progressive spirit of the most populous country on earth, which on top of it, is built on socialist principles (with Chinese characteristics).

Writing this essay in rural Laos, I just saw, literally an entire army of Chinese engineers and workers in action, building huge bridges and tunnels, connecting one of the poorest countries in Asia, to both China and Southeast Asia, erecting hospitals and schools, small factories for the rural population, airports and hydro-electric powerplants or in brief: putting the great majority of Laotian people out of poverty by providing them with both livelihood and infrastructure.          Continue reading

Inventor of the Web Prepares to Launch Web 3.0,….. Predicts Privacy Revolution

Inventor of the Web Prepares to Launch Web 3.0,….. Predicts Privacy Revolution

Written by  Sunday, 25 November 2018

The inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee (shown), believes that “the web has evolved into an engine of inequity and division; swayed by powerful forces who use it for their own agendas.” To correct that and “restore the power and agency of individuals on the web,” Berners-Lee is preparing to re-invent the web.

Due to the growing prevalence of the twin evils of data-mining and data-manipulation, the web — created to be a free and open platform — has instead  become a place where users find themselves robbed of both their privacy and easy access to reliable information on which they could base sound decisions. Take as just one example, the Cambridge Analytica breach of Facebook last year. By the time the dust settled and the smoke cleared, at least 50 million (and possibly as many as 87 million) users had their data harvested and used to manipulate their (and their friends’) votes in the 2016 presidential election.

BOOK: Defining Moments of A Free Man from A Black Stream – By Dr. Frank L. Douglas

 Summary

In August, 1963, two weeks before Martin Luther King’s March on Washington,D.C., Frank L. Douglas arrived in the USA. This book recalls the Moments in his life, when the values he learned as a young boy attending Cambridge Academy High School, Queens College, and Elim Evangelical Church, gave him the courage and fortitude to endure and overcome the challenges he faced in a racist society. Those values included: Mercy, Wisdom, Justice, Authenticity, Emotional Strength and Self-Control.

The book accounts events at Lehigh and Cornell Universities where Dr. Douglas experienced both negative as well as very supportive actions from the professors. He graduated with Honors from Lehigh University and received his Ph.D. and M.D. degrees from Cornell University. Douglas’ description of his experiences at Cornell University and Xerox Company explain the significance of ‘A Free Man from A Black Stream’ that is contained in the title of his Memoirs.    Continue reading
