Efter EU-domen: Bahnhof upphör med all datalagring omedelbart

Datalagringsdirektivet har förklarats ogiltigt av EU-domstolen och internetoperatören Bahnhof agerar omedelbart:

– Bahnhof avbryter all datalagring med omedelbar verkan. Dessutom raderar vi de uppgifter som redan fanns sparade, säger vd Jon Karlung.

We humans need to eat less meat and dairy products to reduce our negative effects on the climate.
For agriculture, there are three major options for mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions: 1) productivity improvements, particularly in the livestock sector; 2) dedicated technical mitigation measures; and 3) human dietary changes. The aim of the paper is to estimate long-term agricultural GHG emissions, under different mitigation scenarios, and to relate them to the emissions space compatible with the 2 °C temperature target. Our estimates i...

I think that the industry has the biggest effect... together with the cars and the aeroplanes. 
Reduction of meat and dairy benefits Monsanto and the petrochemical industry.

Pretty epic city planning with that street layout.

(I might have found this randomly while searching for Pokémon.)

Epic.
 
NSA algorithm enables spies to see through paper.

Top-secret documents reveal that the National Security Agency is dramatically expanding its ability to covertly monitor targets through webcams, according to a new report on The Intercept. 

The NSA has been able to use spyware for years that enables the organization to hijack laptop and PC webcams, and has used it to monitor target organizations and suspected terrorists. 

But in recent years, their efforts have been stymied by the use of Post-it Notes placed over the camera lenses, according to documents uncovered by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. 

In response, the NSA has developed new technology that can essentially see through paper. 

When a Post-it Note is placed over a webcam, it doesn’t block the light. It merely scatters it into a blurry blob of yellow. The NSA’s technology project, code-named GoldenEye, is able to use something called a spatial light modulator to re-assemble the scattered light back into something close to the original image. 

The ability to do this with lasers has existed for years, but the NSA program is the first to do it with regular light. 

The Intercept says the NSA has been using the GoldenEye technology for about a year to secretly monitor every webcam in the world covered by a Post-it Note. According to the report, the NSA doesn’t even bother to monitor webcams that are not covered, because those users obviously have nothing to hide. 

The NSA is working on an even more advanced version of GoldenEye that can see through duct tape and even electrical tape. 

The budget for GoldenEye is reportedly in the neighborhood of $42 gazillion.

Riktigt bra mat, och stora portioner, men ändå billigt. Helt ok service. Dock står bläckfisk listad som vegetarisk mat… Hmm?

Interiören är… Speciell. Men borden är lyckligtvis lite diskretare än entrén, vilket är bra, för entrén är helt knäpp; baren är en Folkvagns-buss... :-) Maten är mycket god, inte av typen västerländsk, utan mer autentisk Thai, och servicen är bra.

Fantastic food, and run by a very dedicated and enthusiastic chef. All dinner sessions must be booked in advance. He makes sushi with the best quality local fish, with great respect for sushi tradition. Highly rated in restaurant guides. Fairly expensive, but I would like to come back and visit regularly.

We did not stay the night here, but we visited twice as walk-in guests, so I do not know anything about the insides of the cottages, but judging by everything else, I would guess that they are also high quality. The property is quite nice and neatly kept, especially by Philippine resort standards, which also means it's more expensive. The eponymous cave is nice to look at, but only overnight guests are currently allowed to swim in it, after signing a waiver. The beach is nice too, and the swimming pool is quite interesting, because it has a partly very deep section in addition to the childrens splashing area. One of the outside tables is in fact a tree house, which was a nice touch. We ordered some food from the kitchen, which was good quality each time. They have a good parking outside, there is a nice reception where they sell everything from souvenirs to swimwear. There is at least two bars that sell drinks and snacks. So to sum up, this is a very nice and pretty place with a good view and, by Philippine standards, quite excellent facilities for a beach resort, and as expected, the higher standard comes with a higher price. Recommended.

The best beer pub in Göteborg, easy. I would guess it's also pretty high on the top list in the entire country. I simply cannot recommend it highly enough if you are a beer lover. The place is owned and run by beer geeks, although novices are very welcome too, even if you can't tell an IPA from an APA -- and they will happily explain the difference to you if you ask. They also have a rather good pub kitchen, and their burgers are excellent. The pub itself has pretty good facilities, and the place is usually crowded despite being located on a quiet block, away from the main streets. It's less than a 5 minute walk from the nearest tram stop (Lilla Bommen), so it's still very central. They have 30 different beers on tap (including one or two regular lagers), and hundreds of kinds of bottled beer in the fridge. Their staff is very knowledgable and give fine recommendations based on your preferences. If you ask nicely they will let you evaluate a sip of their tap beer before you commit to ordering a glass. They arrange regular beer tastings, which are quite popular. Check it out. :-)

Gediget, traditionellt pizzahak. Jag är stammis här sedan drygt 15 år, och Dorado har alltid vunnit på smak och kvalité, även om de är något dyrare än andra. Den starka kebabsåsen, gärna med extra vitlöksolja, är en riktig vinnare. Favoritpizza: Anders special med fullkornsdeg, extra ost, stark sås, och vitlöksolja.
