Lavabit ist der Email-Dienst, den Edward #Snowden für verschlüsselte Kommunikation genutzt haben soll. Jetzt sieht der Dienst sich durch die US-Regierung offenbar gezwungen, dicht zu machen.


Die bemerkenswerte Stelllungnahme von Lavabit im Wortlaut:

My Fellow Users,

I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit. After significant soul searching, I have decided to suspend operations. I wish that I could legally share with you the events that led to my decision. I cannot. I feel you deserve to know what’s going on--the first amendment is supposed to guarantee me the freedom to speak out in situations like this. Unfortunately, Congress has passed laws that say otherwise. As things currently stand, I cannot share my experiences over the last six weeks, even though I have twice made the appropriate requests.

What’s going to happen now? We’ve already started preparing the paperwork needed to continue to fight for the Constitution in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. A favorable decision would allow me resurrect Lavabit as an American company.

This experience has taught me one very important lesson: without congressional action or a strong judicial precedent, I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States.

Radioactive Bacteria used in Cancer Treatment

I've been meaning to write this post for ages now about research describing how radioactive bacteria was used to treat pancreatic cancer in mice. It sounds like science fiction, but it's not; this was published last month in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal by a research group in New York. See full text #openaccess link here:

Pancreatic cancer typically has an extremely poor prognosis. It is known as a 'silent killer' because the disease develops surreptitiously, with general non-specific symptoms; by the time a positive diagnosis is made, the disease has usually progressed into more advanced stages where a cure is no longer an option.

• The spread of cancer, known as metastasis, is generally more ominous than the primary tumor itself. Our current medical arsenal is actually quite effective at eliminating primary tumors through traditional treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. The reason cancer can be so deadly is because of it's capacity to spread and form metastases, which tend to be more aggressive and resistant to treatment than the primary tumor. 

• The tumor microenvironment is the cellular environment in which the tumor exists; it includes blood vessels, immune cells with their associated molecules, signaling molecules etc. The tumor microenvironment contributes to tumor initiation, progression, and response to therapy. Solid tumors such as pancreatic cancers often have an immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment; this means that there are cells within the tumor microenvironment that can suppress the activity of the immune system. Think of it as a wound that fails to heal

Listeria monocytogenes is a  pathogen that reproduces inside the host cell, and can typically be cleared by the immune system in normal tissues. However, the disease is more serious in patients with compromised immune systems, such as people who take immunosuppressant drugs or those infected with HIV.

• Researchers in New York used these unrelated properties of solid tumors and Listeria to set up an ingenious experiment. First, they linked a radioactive isotope of the element Rhenium (Re) to a weakened strain of live Listeria. Next, they used this radioactive Listeria to infect mice that had metastatic pancreatic tumors. The reasoning behind this experiment was to use the ability of Listeria to infect immunocompromised tissues, such as those found in the tumor microenvironment, and target radiation therapy to it.

• The results were dramatic; the radioactive Listeria was able to infect and multiply within metastases, but not in normal tissues. The dose of radiation present in the metastases was also much higher than the levels found in normal tissues. Finally, the number of metastatic tumors and the tumor weight was reduced in radioactive-Listeria treated mice, compared to controls. 

• The implications of these experiments are huge; as I said earlier, metastatic pancreatic cancer is typically a death sentence. These tumors cannot be removed surgically, and they are resistant to chemotherapy and external radiation. The use of chemotherapy can only extend survival by six months. The discovery that live weakened bacteria can deliver radioactivity directly to the metastatic tumors, without killing normal tissues is huge. It might herald an exciting new era in the treatment of metastases from pancreatic cancer, and possibly other solid tumors too.

Hello from the USA. CELL towers allow for location to be known as well as for your cell company to record your call as well. That is pretty standard here. We all know we are all being recorded when  communicating just as all typing and speech (recognition) and also face recognition is also just common knowledge here in the USA. NOT really news worthy unless you have not already heard about this over and over,here in the USA. Other  monitoring other than here may be of other legally placed authorities from around the world.
   Grace, Peace, Joy and Love to all. 
Blessings,  from the USA.

Amazon: Kostenlose MP3s zur gekauften CD oder Vinyl via AutoRip Auch in Deutschland, Schweiz und Österreich wird amazon den Service "#AutoRip" einführen. Der Internet-Versandhändler stellt für Kunden kostenlos MP3s zu gekauften CDs, Schallplatten und Hörspiele zur Verfügung. #Amazon konnte sich mit der #GEMA sowie großen und kleinen Plattenlabels einigen. So erhalten Kunden rückwirkend bis in das Jahr 1999 #MP3-Dateiein für ihre erworbenen Alben.
