... Black Cube had been contracted, and is likely still contracted, by Israel’s Ministry of Defense. The private security agency Black Cube is known to have two separate divisions for #corporations and #governments. The firm was recently caught attempting to undermine the #Iran nuclear deal — then also a top political objective of Israeli Prime Minister #BenjaminNetanyahu — by attempting to obtain information on the “financial or sexual impropriety” (i.e., #blackmail) of top U.S. officials involved in drafting the accord.
 




Invasion


In this era of “reconciliation”, Indigenous land is still being taken at gunpoint. Invasion is a new film about the Unist’ot’en Camp, Gidimt’en checkpoint and the larger Wet’suwet’en Nation standing up to the Canadian government and corporations who continue colonial violence against Indigenous people.

The Unist’ot’en Camp has been a beacon of resistance for nearly 10 years. It is a healing space for Indigenous people and settlers alike, and an active example of decolonization. The violence, environmental destruction, and disregard for human rights following TC Energy (formerly TransCanada) / Coastal GasLink’s interim injunction has been devastating to bear, but this fight is far from over.

here's a short extract:
So for many of us, defining ourselves as #ecosocialists is a way of distinguishing our socialism from such environmental blindness.

Even more important, by calling ourselves ecosocialists we are saying that we don’t view the #environment as just one of many equally important concerns, just another stick t

Why does a vegan get ads for ice cream?

He said the other day, “Okay, Bill, you’re the one who keeps telling me about the terrible things the #internet can do (he usually ignores most of my advice) so how come I get #ads for Ben & Jerry’s in my emails on my Mac? They keep screaming at me “Hey, Jake! Buy Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s now!”

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

Privacy tip #4

Turn off location. PART 2




[]BROWSERS

Apart from Edge, which has to be tweaked from the W10 OS, most browsers can have their location services disabled through their menu. I cannot list EVERY browser in existence here, as I have a life. If you have other browser location tweaks, please share.

CHROME
1. Click on Chrome’s menu and select the cog symbol – SETTINGS
2. Click the SHOW ADVANCED SETTINGS link at the bottom. Don’t be afraid of the ‘advanced’ implication, this has been worded to scare off timid sheep from reclaiming their privacy.
3. Click the CONTENT SETTINGS button under PRIVACY. While we’re here, consider unchecking the boxes urging us to use web services to ‘resolve navigational errors’ or ‘prediction services’ to auto complete our searches. This is just more telemetry.
4. Scroll down to the LOCATION section and select DO NOT ALLOW ANY SITE TO TRACK YOUR PHYSICAL LOCATION.

Ask HN: What was the Internet like before corporations got their hands on it?


What was the Internet like in its purest form? Was it mainly information sharing, and if so, how reliable was the information?

Privacy tip #4

Turn off location. Part 1


Convenience is often the enemy of privacy, with the internet and our devices, but location services are a feature that can allow many exploits.

A large industry has grown around location data collection, which is covert and unregulated. Our location data is bought and sold many times between companies and corporations, either to trade with or capitalize on. Facebook has recently been in the news for developing patents that outline methods to track user movements and predict where and when users will be, through location services.

Many thanks to yoneda (mk@diaspod.de) for flagging this story up.
You can read the story's text on yoneda's page (without the original site’s excessive tracking and fingerprinting) on the federation here:
