Hongkongers in Britain have called on Suella Braverman to reconsider controversial measures in her public order bill, which they likened to the repressive measures used to crack down on democratic opposition in their home city.

"Urban science has largely focused on city averages. The established approach just looked at one datapoint per city, for example average income. With their focus on averages, prior studies overlooked the stark inequalities that exist within cities when making predictions about how urban growth affects the life experiences of city dwellers”, says study co-author.

Non-autocratic countries condemn what China is doing but don't provide corridors for refugees.

The Kremlin has stamped out public dissent but makeshift memorials to Ukrainian dead are a focus for those opposed to the conflict.

The proof-of-concept would be a breakthrough for healthcare, security, gaming (VR), and a host of other industries, and would overcome issues affecting regular cameras, such as poor lighting or simple obstacles like furniture blocking a camera lens, while also eclipsing traditional RBG sensors, LiDAR, and radar technology. It also would cost far less and consume less energy than the latter, researchers noted.

Innes FitzGerald, a leading junior endurance runner, cited her “deep concern” over the issue in a letter to British Athletics in which she asked not to be considered for selection for the world cross country championships.

The government-affiliated civil organization CÖF (Civil Cooperation Forum), which operates with money from a state-owned gambling service provider, attacked the opposition through posters.

Yes, only customers seem to be affected. I corrected the headline to make that clear. Sorry.

This appears to be one of the hottest market trends with China having the most extensive public surveillance system, but we may assume other regions to gain ground.

That’s weird. I don’t encounter problems watching the video. Maybe try refresh the page or try this alternative.

This is sadly true. In my nearer environment literally everyone agrees, too, but politics is lagging behind.

I don’t know where you live, but I agree we should never be whining about a country and its people. To critisize the government if there’s a reason, but never the people. A country’s government and its people are not the same.

to substitute for that same page to be about the USA.>

Maybe, but does that make any country better?

A lot of topics here appear to trigger a debate of ideoligies or between “first world” and “third world” (I decry such terminology, but let’s put that aside now), as if that would solve any problem. It’s sort of of double standard: environmental pollution is bad and good, surveillance is bad and good … it just depends who commits the crime …

If you’ve got a couple of minutes, scroll through the images from around the globe to see where we’re all heading as a global human race. (Ah, yes, the current climate crisis has been and is still being caused mostly by the US and many countries in Europe, and, yes, these countries must change their lifestyles and they are financially liable for the crises. These are two of many issues I agree with my friends from China, South America and Africa.)

We can all see media and NGO websites riddled with trackers, and so are possibly many journalists’ devices. So yes, I’d agree that’s worrying how easy it obviously was.

This is one of the most insightful, straight-to-the-point short articles about Web3 and decentralization I’ve ever read if I may say so.

Aha, that’s good question. I don’t know, unfortunately, but I am sure there is someone around more capable than me …

I am not sure whether I understand the question, but I understand Blokada is a VPN. So they’re certainly able to track you across the web. If you don’t trust them, don’t use them.

Don’t know what the best are, but there is The Conversation and Rest Of World, and you may find information also here.

How would you organize the payment processing in a federated marketplace?

Radicle is still in its earky stages. Don’t know where they are heading, but, yes, it’s far from being perfect :-)

Federated marketplace, ie a federated amazon or etsy.

What do you think of Particl? Never tried it myself.

Federated code collaboration

You will know Radicle, but it’s in early development.
