    If the people profited from the buying and selling of their data from every company / agency that wanted it, they would have gotten a LOT more than 77 million back.

    It is, and it is COMING HERE. China at least is in your face about the behaviors it does not want. Of course it wants you to read a daily dose of mandatory propaganda an hour a day too. Here, you do NOT know what is deemed forbidden because they are much more backstabbery here. Here, they find it is to their advantage to keep you off balance and not tell you that your social media posts just wrecked your car insurance rate and got you fired by the AI that factored both those things in.

The really worrisome thing about this is the blazae attitude companies take to Privacy and Data Security. So if they applied this same attitude to something like, oh I dont know, say your fucking CAR, would you still have the same confidence in that company? How about a Wireless Pacemaker? Just like there are people out there that would hack your Pacemaker for fun if you have one, do you think they would give two shits about wiping your hard drive or stealing your identity?

    A major 7.3-magnitude earthquake hit the remote Maluku islands in eastern Indonesia Sunday, sending panicked residents running into the streets, but no tsunami warning was issued. The shallow quake struck about 165 kilometres (100 miles) south-southwest of the town of Ternate in North Maluku province at 6:28 pm (0928 GMT), according to the US Geological Survey. "The earthquake was quite strong, sending residents to flee outside. They are panicking and many are now waiting on the roadside," said local disaster mitigation official Mansur, who like many Indonesians goes by one name. Officials were assessing the situation but there were no immediate reports of casualties, he told AFP. The province was also hit by a 6.9-magnitude tremor last week.

    A 16-year-old girl was bitten by a shark while boogie boarding in Florida, police say. The teen was bitten while in the Atlantic Ocean outside her hotel in Amelia Island on Friday, according to the Nassau County Sheriff's office, and she suffered bites to her foot and ankle, CNN reported. The girl, who was vacationing from South Florida, made it to the pool area of the hotel, where first responders rushed to her aid, Sheriff Bill Leeper of Nassau County told CNN. She was then sent to a local hospital where she received several stitches. As of July 11, there have been 45 shark attack bites reported and verified in 2019, according to Tracking Sharks – 21 were reported in the U.S.; 8 occurred in Florida.

    A row between Japan and South Korea escalated on Saturday, with contested accounts of a frosty meeting the day before that had failed to make progress on a dispute that could threaten global supplies of microchips and smartphone displays.Tokyo lodged a protest against Seoul, saying it had broken an agreement on what the two sides would disclose from the Friday discussions on Japan's curbs of exports to Korea of some materials used to make high-tech equipment, said Japanese trade ministry official Jun Iwamatsu. Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) also disputed a Korean official's statement that Seoul had asked Japan on Friday to withdraw the restrictions. But a Korean trade ministry official shot back that Seoul had "clearly demanded Japan withdraw its trade restrictions at yesterday’s meeting, and there should be no disagreement over that matter with Japan." He told Reuters the two sides had discussed what they would disclose but that there was no agreement. "I am frustrated," said the Korean official, who declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter. One reason for the sensitivity over characterising the talks could be a Japanese fear that if Korea can assert that it used consultations and unsuccessfully sought to have Tokyo withdraw the curbs, Seoul could justify escalating the matter to the World Trade Organisation. "The nature of the meeting is not a consultation, but an occasion where Japan gives explanation after getting a request from the South Korean government," Iwamatsu said. "Therefore we would like to correct an expression from a South Korean official that the meeting can appropriately be described as a consultation for problem solving."

    Dozens of South Korean small-business owners rallied in South Korea's capital on Monday calling for boycotts of Japanese consumer goods to protest Tokyo's move to tighten high-tech exports to its neighbor.Kim Sung-min, president of the Korea Mart Association, urged shop owners to boycott the distribution of Japanese products until Tokyo apologizes over the trade curbs and withdraws them. Other demonstrators held up signs that read, "Our supermarket does not sell Japanese products." Thousands of South Koreans have signed petitions posted by citizens on the presidential office's websites that called for boycotts of Japanese products and travel to Japan and for South Korea to skip next year's Tokyo Summer Olympics. Retailers have also reported modest drops in the sales of Japanese beer. "We will continue boycotting the consumption and distribution of Japanese products until Japan's government and the Abe administration apologizes and withdraws its economic retaliation," Kim said, referring to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. South Korea plans to file a complaint with the World Trade Organization and will raise the issue at next week's WTO General Council in Geneva, the country's trade ministry said Sunday.

    I think something in between the AoC and the Constitution would be best, I think the AoC was made too weak on purpose in order to set up the push for the Constitution. We also needed the BoR and it always should have applied to the states. If you want to discuss the alternate form of government either for the weakened Federal government or for the individual states I have started a thread for it: A new system of government

    As if the Near and Middle East needed more ballistic missiles, now Turkey has fired one in combat. Turkey fired a Bora – a ballistic missile based on a Chinese design – at Kurdish militants in northern Iraq. “Turkey’s domestically-produced tactical ballistic missile BORA successfully struck its target after it was used for the first time in actual combat within the scope of Operation Claw in northern Iraq,” according to Turkey’s Yeni Safak news site. “Bora was developed by Turkish defense giant ROKETSAN; its export version is called Khan.” Yeni Safak displayed a video of a Bora being fired. The target was reportedly in the Hakurk region of northern Iraq, which Turkish ground and air forces hit in an operation against bases belonging to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), an independence movement that fought against Turkey for decades. There was no word on whether the missile inflicted any damage on its target. To add some hot sauce to an already volatile region, Greek media is reporting that Greece is within range of the Bora. This raises the prospect of an Aegean arms race if Greece feels compelled to acquire new weapons against its traditional rival Turkey.

    Malaysia has seized more than 1 billion ringgit ($243.25 million) from a bank account of state-owned China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering Ltd (CPP), the Straits Times newspaper said on Saturday.The seizure comes nearly a year after Malaysia suspended two pipeline projects, valued at $2.3 billion, on which CPP was the lead contractor. The Malaysian government this month ordered HSBC to transfer the funds held in the Chinese firm's account to Suria Strategic Energy Resources, which is wholly owned by the Malaysian finance ministry, the Singapore-based newspaper said. CPP was perplexed by the unilateral transfer of funds out of its account without notification, the firm, a unit of state energy giant China National Petroleum Corp, told the newspaper. Officials of Malaysia's finance ministry, the office of its prime minister and the pipeline firm's Malaysia office did not immediately respond to requests from Reuters for comment. HSBC declined to comment, citing client confidentiality. An official of CPP's parent, China National Petroleum, also declined to comment.

    A healthy lifestyle can cut your risk of developing Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia even if you have genes that raise your risk for these mind-destroying diseases, a large study has found.People with high genetic risk and poor health habits were about three times more likely to develop dementia versus those with low genetic risk and good habits, researchers reported Sunday. Regardless of how much genetic risk someone had, a good diet, adequate exercise, limiting alcohol and not smoking made dementia less likely.

    The Department of Justice crackdown on suspected child predators within government child protective agencies is picking up steam. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey announced: An Atlantic County, New Jersey, man who was previously employed by the N.J. Department of Child Protection and Permanency (NJDCP&P) was charged today for allegedly receiving, distributing and producing images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.

    Lately not a week passes without some dismal news involving Turkey hitting the tape, and yet the lira continues to levitate, blissfully ignorant of the storm clouds headed for Ankara, levitating on hopes the Fed will cut rates and sprinkle golden showers on emerging markets. However, in light of the two latest developments, the Mrs Watanabe sellers of USDTRY may finally pay attention. On Sunday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan - who last weekend fired the head of the central bank for not cutting rates fast enough, and who has now become the de facto head of the CBRT - promised "significantly lower interest rates by the end of the year", Bloomberg reported. “We aim to reduce inflation to one digit by the end of this year,” Erdogan told journalists in Istanbul, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency. “As we achieve this, we will achieve our year-end interest rate target as well." Of course, should interest rates drop to one digit, the USDTRY will promptly collapse to two, as the rate differential between the lira and the dollar collapses, removing the main incentive to go long the lira at a time when the Turkish economy remains in crisis. Meanwhile, even as Trump and Erdo may be BFFs when it comes to firing head of central banks, the US president and his advisors have reportedly settled on a sanctions package to punish Turkey for receiving parts of a Russian S-400 missile defense system and plans to announce it in the coming days, Bloomberg wrote in a separate report. News of the imminent sanctions was somewhat unexpectedly considering that when Trump and Erdogan met at the G-20 summit in Japan in June, the U.S. president suggested possible leniency on sanctions. He sought to blame the Obama administration for Turkey’s decision to buy the Russian equipment, saying the impasse is “not really Erdogan’s fault.” According to Bloomberg, the administration "chose one of three sets of actions devised to inflict varying degrees of pain under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, the people said, without identifying which set had been chosen. The plan needs Trump’s approval." Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Friday that Washington’s position that Turkey can’t have both the F-35 and the Russian missile system “has not changed.” Esper spoke with Defense Minister Hulusi Akar in the afternoon, and the Turkish government said in a statement that a U.S. delegation would visit next week to keep discussing the issue.

    At least two immigration raids were conducted in New York neighborhoods on Saturday, just one day after President Trump said Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents would begin a nationwide roundup of people living illegally in the United States, according to the Wall Street Journal. Federal ICE agents canvased homes in the Harlem section of Manhattan as well a Brooklyn's Sunset Park neighborhoodaccording to the Journal's source - who added that despite being turned away by many for lack of a warrant, the agency plans to return to Sunset Park tomorrow. A spokeswoman for ICE in New York said that the agency won’t offer specific details related to enforcement operations. “As always, ICE prioritizes the arrest and removal of unlawfully present aliens who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security,” the spokeswoman said. The attempted raids in New York come as Democratic city officials and community activists across the U.S. have been mobilizing for the planned roundup. -Wall Street Journal This marks the second time plans for ICE raids have been leaked - the first of which has been blamed on Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan and resulted in the cancellation of the planned raids. "They’re going to take people out and they’re going to bring them back to their countries" said Trump on Friday, adding that the raids would focus on criminals - and that agents would "take criminals out, put them in prison, or put in them in prison in the countries they came from." The White House did not confirm the raids, but noted that there are more than one million people living in America illegally and in violation of court-ordered deportations. "It is time for these people to go home," said one administration official, who added that the roundups aren't new - and in fact occurred during the Obama administration.
