Trump blames Cohen testimony for his US-DPRK summit failure


_"For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the 'walk'," Drumpf said on Twitter, referring to his decision to walk away from what he previously said was a bad deal with Kim.__

South Korean President Moon Jae-in called for officials to try to find a way to restart talks between the North and the United States.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said she would push for a fresh round of three-way talks with North Korean and US officials, built on a January gathering in Stockholm.

US-DPRK summit ends with no agreement reached


(And again, our greatest dealmaker in the world has failed to reach an end to the eternal cold war between North Korea and the US. Great job, Mr. President, but at least you have called your former attorney a liar shortly before his testimony. It serves you right, you shouldn't have joined, it jolly well serves you right.)

On the summit in general


First, a working lunch was cancelled. Then the signing of joint agreement was scratched.
By midday Thursday, and a closing news conference originally scheduled for 4 p.m. was moved up to 2 p.m.

“We’ve had very very productive discussions,” Mr. Drumpf added. “The relationship is as good as it’s ever been, I think better.”

After a day of mutual compliments and photo opportunities to start the talks, Thursday began with a one-on-one meeting between the two leaders, that later broadened to include other officials. A scheduled working lunch and signing ceremony appeared to be canceled on Thu... Show more...
 
I don't even feel free in my own mind. When I manage to slow things down from the general miasma of panic and failure in which I am typically engulfed, I find that my thoughts are not my own. I am in an endless trial, where I am guilty by reason of existence. I have to apologize, but I never get it right. There's no way I could ever apologize enough. Every time I find a quiet spot, the Inquisitors and Prosecutors return with a new stack of warrants. The way I looked at someone. How I almost laughed that one time. #Failure. #Crime. #Guilt. All the way back to the first and greatest crime. The #punishment is always that I must beg for (never forthcoming) forgiveness.

And of course, apologizing itself is a crime.

I’m working at trying to be a good Christian, and that’s serious business. It’s like trying to be a good Jew, a good Muslim, a good Buddhist, a good Shintoist, a good Zoroastrian, a good friend, a good lover, a good mother, a good buddy — it’s serious business. It’s not something where you think, Oh, I’ve got it done. I did it all day, hotdiggety. The truth is, all day long you try to do it, try to be it, and then in the evening if you’re honest and have a little courage you look at yourself and say, Hmm. I only blew it eighty-six times. Not bad.

Verizon is parting ways with 10,400 employees in "a voluntary separation program," despite the Trump administration providing a tax cut and various deregulatory changes that were supposed to increase investment in jobs and broadband networks. The cuts represent nearly seven percent of Verizon's workforce and were announced along with a $4.6 billion charge related to struggles in Verizon's Yahoo/AOL business division.

Verizon described the voluntary buyouts as well as ongoing Yahoo/AOL failures in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Tuesday. The buyouts affect "US-based management employees" in multiple business segments, not just Yahoo and AOL.

Here's what Verizon says about its Yahoo/AOL problem:

A Fitting End

What could be a more fitting end to my last pack of Fuji FP-100C than to have the film holder rip the print away from the developer before it could even start.

It’s been fun but now I have to put my instant film backs away and hope that in the future someone decides to make pack film again, much as they have with film for the old 600 series.

You’ll have to trust me that there’s an actual scanned image here.

When discussing viable options for private and secure messengers here we often complained that Moxie Marlinspike is vehemently opposed to open up Signal's server source code in order to enable an alternative infrastructure, let alone a federated network.

And now, guess what happened.

Amazon threatens to suspend Signal's AWS account over censorship circumvention


Image/photo
Direct access to Signal has been censored in Egypt, Oman, Qatar, and UAE for the past 1.5 years. These countries attempt to block Signal by blocking connections to Signal servers from all ISPs. [...]
With Google Cloud and AWS out of the picture, it seems that domain fronting as a censorship circumvention technique is now largely non-viable in the countries where Signal had enabled this feature. [...]
In the meantime, the censors in these countries will have (at least temporarily) achieved their goals. Sadly, they didn’t have to do anything but wait.
