The Last Hour
I am what you call an expert when it comes to windows and I can tell you folks to run with what this guy is saying and take a look at Linux.
Windows has more code to do with spying than running programs or simply copying files from “A” to “B”
its so fucked up that people like me have to hack the registry just to stop some of the windows services and that's even with an admin account.
TechCrunch reports: Online code repository GitHub continues to face a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack on Monday, which the company reported is the largest attack in GitHub.com’s history. The attack began on Thursday and still continues, according to GitHub’s status page and Twitter accounts, though the company says now that all its systems are reporting at 100%. However, the attackers continue to evolve their methodology as the barrage continues, requiring GitHub to remain on “high alert,” it says.
In a blog post from last week, GitHub said there were a number of vectors being used in this attack, including some new and sophisticated techniques that involved using the web browsers of unsuspecting users to flood the GitHub site with traffic. This traffic flood led to reduced availability of GitHub’s systems, as you can tell by the historical graphs on GitHub’s status page, which shows spikes of activity over the past several days.
Specifically, security experts report that the attackers were redirecting search traffic from overseas users of the Chinese search engine Baidu, and were targeting two pages in particular. One page was run by Greatfire.org, a site that reports on the government censorship in China, and the other linked to a copy of the New York Times’ Chinese language website. The Greatfire-run page linked to copies of 10 websites blocked in China. Of note, that organization suffered from a DDoS of its own earlier this month.
Scientists recreated a 9th Century Anglo-Saxon remedy using onion, garlic and part of a cow's stomach.
They were "astonished" to find it almost completely wiped out staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as MRSA.
Their findings will be presented at a national microbiology conference.

Police abuse of Uber driver in New York City. In an unmarked car, the policeman was allegedly attempting to park without using his blinker at a green light. (His reverse lights weren't on. Likely double parked without hazards on.) The Uber driver pulled around and gestured that he should use his blinker, casually and non-offensively, and kept driving us. The policeman aggressively pulls up behind us and this is what happens.
(This occurred just before 2pm on the West side of Manhattan, in police precinct 6, on March 30th, 2015. The officer did not identify himself, but he had a New York license plate: GSS 8891)

Because the Daily Paul is fundamentally about Peace, I stand with Liberty.
I don't care how much you cut from domestic and other programs, we don't need to add more to our defense budget.
And as far as my foreign policy goes, this about sums it up:
China's new development bank, which was announced just five months ago, is becoming a massive headache for the US.
By Mike Bird | Business Insider
Try as it might, the US government can't persuade its allies to stop joining the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).
The bank will be a bit like the World Bank, providing loans to developing countries in Asia for infrastructure projects.
Unlike the World Bank, China will hold the reins of the AIIB. The US administration is publicly worried that the institution will not meet high governance standards, but it really seems opposed to the move because it signals a growing Chinese influence in the region and in global politics.
That looks about right :

What happens when a dynamic company, started by a couple of idealistic friends in grad school, succeeds so wildly that it becomes a mega-corporation that pervades the lives of hundreds of millions? In imperial America, it would seem, it eventually becomes corrupted, even captured. Tragically, that seems to be the unfolding story of Google.
By being the first dot-com to really get the search engine right, Google unlocked the nascent power of the internet, greatly liberating the individual. It is easy to take for granted and forget how revolutionary the advent of “Just Google it” was for the life of the mind. Suddenly, specific, useful knowledge could be had on most any topic in seconds with just a quick flurry of fingers on a keyboard.
This was a tremendous boost for alternative voices on the internet. It made it extremely easy to bypass the establishment gatekeepers of ideas and information. For example, I remember in the mid-2000s using Google to satisfy my curiosity about this “libertarianism” thing I had heard about, since the newspapers and magazines I was reading were quite useless for this purpose. In 2007, by then an avid libertarian, I remember walking through the campus of my former school UC Berkeley, seeing “Google Ron Paul” written in chalk on the ground, and rejoicing to think that hundreds of Cal students were doing just that. A big part of why today’s anti-war movement is more than a handful of Code Pink types, and the libertarian movement is more than a handful of zine subscribers, is that millions “Googled Ron Paul.”
Google and the Security State
It's seems that Instagram has been purging its site of users who post memes or other photos that are anti government, anti establishment, or liberty themed, and without warning or explanation.
One example is here: https://instagram.com/dilutethepower/ .
This might seem random or just a coincidence if it wasn't for the fact that it seems to have happened at around the same time as Google's announcement that they will decide what is true or not ( https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/03/01/breaking-googl... ) and earlier this year the FCC making new rules regarding the web.
I have my own account, dedicated to all things liberty and, more specificly, to Ron Paul ( https://instagram.com/drronpaul ), let's hope I'm not next.
Can you say "freedom of association?
Here's the point. The government should not be in the business of forcing people together or forcing them apart. Such decisions should be made by the people involved, without third party coercion.
In fact, by law, all contracts are VOLUNTARY, and if shown to be entered into by force or coercion are, if challenged, avoided(legally cancelled) by courts.
You cannot force someone into a contract.
A Harley biker is riding by the zoo when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to devour her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage, and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
