Are "deleted" photos really gone from Facebook? Not always

By Jacqui Cheng | Last updated July 3, 2009 1:30 PM

In an age where your boss, coworkers, parents, and even (*gasp*) grandparents are finally joining social networks, we are all more aware than ever that we had better keep things relatively clean. And if you were someone who joined MySpace, Facebook, Flickr, or a number of other sites years ago, you may have more cleaning up to do than usual—after all, back then, you were probably young(er) and dumb(er), posting silly pics of your drunken escapades or questionable updates regarding your unusual interest in English cucumbers.

If you delete questionable images of yourself, you may be in the clear—or you may not, depending on the social network. As it turns out, some social networks delete your images right away while others hold onto them even after claiming they've been deleted. This was the discovery made by researchers at Cambridge University last month when they found that images deleted from social media sites are often left on the server, ripe for anyone to embed elsewhere or link up.

We put this finding to the test and found that some of the most popular sites on the Internet do, in fact, keep images on their servers after you delete them. On May 21, 2009, we deleted photos from four of the networks most used by the Ars staff and readership and monitored them for six weeks. The four networks we checked were Flickr, Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook.

Anonymous legt Egyptische websites plat

Anonieme internetbeweging Anonymous is DDoS-aanvallen tegen belangrijke Egyptische websites gestart. Net als met de aanvallen tegen Mastercard en Visa wordt de Low Orbit Ion Cannon (LOIC) software ingezet, die ook vanaf mobiele telefoons is te gebruiken. Werd bij verschillende andere aanvallen nog Twitter als controlekanaal gebruikt, nu verlopen de opdrachten via IRC. "Operation Egypt", zoals de DDoS-aanvallen worden genoemd, zou vooral bedoeld zijn om demonstranten in Egypte te ondersteunen.

De aanvallen hebben het vooral voorzien op het Egyptische ministerie van Communicatie en Informatietechnologie, zo laat internetbedrijf Netcraft weten. Hoeveel mensen er met de aanvallen meedoen is onbekend, maar de overheidssite is nog altijd bereikbaar, zegt Paul Mutton. Wel gingen andere Egyptische websites onderuit.

Ik geloof er niet in dat het internet volledig aan banden word gelegt.
Er gaat wel wat gebeuren, maar nooit volledig.

Het is voor degene achter de schermen een machtige tool om te zien wat er onder de bevolking leeft, en welke richtingen die opgaan.

The Very Tiny Terrorist

Afbeelding

Thursday, January 27th, 2011
http://www.theagitator.com/2011/01/27/t ... terrorist/


British airport officials have apparently received intelligence that Al Qaeda is recruiting an army of nine-inch terrorists.

Airport officials ordered a holidaymaker carrying a toy soldier onto a plane to remove its three-inch gun – because it was a safety threat.

Ken Lloyd was stunned when he was told he could not go on the plane with the nine-inch model soldier because it was carrying a ‘firearm’.

The Canadian tourist and his wife had bought the toy, which holds a replica SA80 rifle, during a visit to the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford Camp in Dorset.

But when he tried to take the £135 keepsake through Gatwick Airport in his hand luggage it triggered a security alert at the scanners…

Officials declared the moulded gun could not go on the plane and Mr Lloyd had to snap off the model weapon and then post it back to his home in Ontario.

He said: ‘As the figurine’s SA80 rifle was pulled from the box, the security search officer contacted her supervisor. The moulded SA80 could not pass.

‘My wife asked for a “reality check”, explaining how this offending piece of sculptured moulding is a 9 inch painted model with a moulded and painted rifle that is part of the figure.

‘The supervisor was confident within the surety of the regulations and said a “firearm” is a firearm and cannot pass.

The lake that glows in the dark: Eerie phenomenon that turned waters (and midnight swimmers) luminous blue.

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 3:22 PM on 27th January 2011
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -blue.html


Swimming is supposed to give you a healthy glow, but these swimmers weren't quite sure what was going on when they took a late-night dip and turned a fluorescent shade of blue.

'It was like we were playing with radioactive paint,' said photographer Phil Hart who snapped the bizarre sight as his friends emerged from a lake in the dark of night.

The light is created by a chemical reaction called bioluminescence, which happens when a naturally-occuring micro-organism in the water is disturbed.

Phil, 34, put his camera on a very slow shutter speed and threw sand and stones into the water to cause the reaction and capture as much of the blue haze as possible.

These images are particularly stunning because the concentration of the micro-organism 'Noctiluca Scintillans' was abnormally high when he took the photos at Gippsland Lakes in Victoria, Australia.

Phil said: 'To be there watching this bioluminescence is spellbinding and to see it like this is very rare.

'I am a program director with an organisation that has been running canoeing camps on the Gippsland Lakes for 50 years. Nobody can remember the bioluminescence ever being as bright as this.

It is believed the combination of bushfires and floods created the high levels of nutrients in the lakes for the organisms to feed.

'It may not happen again in my lifetime,' said Phil. 'I feel fortunate to have been there to see it and to have had my camera gear there to record it.'

Phil, from Melbourne, added: 'While the luminescence was obvious to the eye, the bright blue colour is only apparent in photos.

'When the first photo I took appeared on screen I could hardly believe it - the people in the water looked freakish.

Florida makes sales and possession of bath salts illegal

erica.rakow@wjhg.com

Tallahassee-- Bath salts that go by the names Route 69, White Rush, Bolivian Bath, Vanilla Sky and many others were banned Wednesday by the state.

Posted: 8:47 PM Jan 26, 2011
Reporter: Erica Rakow
http://www.wjhg.com/home/headlines/Flor ... 81959.html


Tallahassee-- Bath salts that go by the names Route 69, White Rush, Bolivian Bath, Vanilla Sky and many others were banned Wednesday by the state.

Attorney General Pam Bondi issued an emergency order Wednesday afternoon, making it a felony to sell or possess the salts.


Bondi called a news conference late this afternoon where she announced the filing of an emergency rule that will add substances containing MDVP, which is the ingredient in "bath salts" to the schedule of controlled substances.

Bondi was joined by Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen and other law enforcement officials, FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey, and Representatives Jimmy Patronis, Marti Coley and Brad Drake.

Together, they announced that due to the violent nature of the side effects involved with substances containing MDVP, the state is filing the emergency rule.

Bondi says this will provide law enforcement with the tools necessary to take the dangerous substance off the shelves and protect the abusers from themselves and others.

She went on to say these drugs are dangerous and should not be confused with any type of common bath product.

"Our kids can overdose on this. So what we want to have done, we want to have it made a schedule 1 drug and to put it in perspective, that's right up there with cocaine and heroine. So parents please tell your kids this can be bought at the mall, at stores, this can be bought anywhere and no longer after today," said Attorney General Pam Bondi.

"Our medical personnel feel they're overdosing on it. There's no instructions on it. There's no directions on how to use it. It's creating super human strength that takes 7 to 8 officers to deal with these individuals as under the influence of it," said Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen.

Authorities believe social networking sites have helped spread word of the drug. The state acted quickly in an effort to stop problems during spring break.

The emergency rule will expire in 90 days, but lawmakers are expected to make it law before the rule goes away.

Reported side effects of MDVP include: increased heart rate, nosebleeds, hallucinations, severe paranoia, seizures, and kidney failure and even death.

Gisteren al in de schreeuwbox voorbij gekomen "VX Nerve Gas missing!"
hier alvast wat op QeFeF:

Dugway Army base on lockdown

Afbeelding

http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=14154471


DUGWAY -- The U.S. Army's Dugway Proving Ground was on lockdown Wednesday evening as part of "an ongoing security operation," according to spokeswoman Paula Thomas.

Reports of nearly 1,000 employees stranded at the base, some in their cars, went unconfirmed but Dugway Proving Ground Commander Col. William E. King, IV, said food and beverages were being brought in.

"As you know measures like these (lockdown of our gates) are not taken lightly," he said. "No one is in immediate danger but these steps are required." King said he would open the gates "as soon as I can."

The gates to the facility were closed prior to the 5:30 p.m. shift ending. Workers normally scheduled to go home were not allowed to leave, while those coming into the area were also not let in.

Dugway encompasses more than 800,000 acres of Utah's west desert, where more than 2,000 people call home. It is a government-owned facility used by the U.S. Army Reserves and the U.S. National Guard for maneuver training. It is also a U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command center where tests are occasionally run on defenses against biological and chemical weaponry.

Ashley Pallota - VX Nerve Gas - Disappearing tweets - DUGWAY LOCKDOWN CONSPIRACY

I agonized over starting this thread but figured it was the best way to perhaps help a young woman and her mother from falling off our radar. The cat was already out of the box by others, and yes I added to the evidence by capturing it on screen.

rechtermuis klik voor groter formaat

Earlier in the Dugway thread a poster named Huntsville mom said her daughter was in the Dugway lockdown. In fact, she said her daughter had been able to contact her briefly. Her daughter, Ashley, works for the army and said that someone told her the reason for the lockdown was a missing vial of VX nerve gas. This was only said as a possible rumor.

Upon tracking realtime for VX nerve gas I found a tweet by her daughter, stating that she was indeed in lockdown, and mentioned the missing VX nerve gas.

I took a screenshot of the tweet because I had a feeling this poster was real, I also "followed" her on Twitter. I saw her account, including her last post a few weeks ago and thought it odd that her recent post on the VX nerve gas was not on her profile. Her facebook profiles, linked in accounts and other accounts all matched up.

Soon after that her tweet disappeared, then her whole account disappeared. Very very alarming.
If this were disinfo that she was spreading I do not think that the info would have been yanked. I think that either the TPTB censored her Tweets and/or she removed them in a panic.

Either way this whole thing stinks to high heaven.


Now I am worried about this young lady and her mom. I thought it best to bring attention to them so TPTB know we are aware of the situation. So they don't just conveniently disappear like her accounts did. She most certainly has lost her job. Not only that but we are being kept in the dark about the possible missing VX nerve gas - a weapon of mass destruction.

We know that they keep stuff like this from us, heck the MSM just now picked up the story after what - 12 hours?? This irritates all of us truth seekers to no end - to be kept in the dark about a possible catastrophic thing like "missing" VX nerve gas.

Now of course I hope we are all wrong. But I want to send out kudos to Ashley and her mom for bringing this potentially very dangerous situation to our attention.
We applaud you and wish you well. We pray for your safety. You are on our radar to look out for you!!

Dugway says lockdown caused by 'serious mishandling' of nerve agent

January 27th, 2011 @ 3:24pm
http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=14157393


DUGWAY -- Using phrases such as "administrative error," "a serious mishandling of our agents" and "unfortunate oversight," the U.S. Army Thursday said a 13-hour lockdown at Dugway Proving Ground was prompted by an internal error.

A mislabeled one milliliter vial of the nerve agent VX, or less than 1/4 teaspoon, that could not be found during a routine inventory check resulted in the base being locked down from approximately 5:25 p.m. Wednesday until 7 a.m. Thursday.

Dugway commander Col. William E. King IV told reporters Thursday the vial was not lost.

"It was just misplaced into a different container that was improperly marked," he said.

On Tuesday, a two-person team was conducting tests on the vial of VX. The remaining residue after the tests were completed was supposed to be put back into its original vault.

Instead, the VX was returned to a container with the wrong serial number. During a routine inventory check Wednesday, it could not be found.

King said he immediately ordered Dugway Proving Ground on lockdown, and no one on the base — Army personnel or civilians — could leave.

"I had to make sure there was no malicious intent to put it somewhere else so that later someone could steal it," he said.

The vial was found about 3 a.m. The lockdown continued, however, as the investigation into whether there was malicious intent was settled. It was determined that there was no malice.

"No one was ever in danger," the Army said in a statement.

Gov. Gary Herbert spoke with military officials Thursday morning. "Everything is OK. I don't think there is any public safety hazard out there," he said during the taping of his monthly KUED news conference.

Herbert said he planned to speak further with the military about the incident, "about protocol and what we can do better and how it was handled. ... The main thing is that the public was safe and the lockdown was appropriate. The issue was resolved and life goes on, no problem."

King said although the missing VX was found, the issue is still under internal scrutiny and investigation, and the FBI is assisting. The error, he said, is being taken very seriously.

Tooele County residents say they understand why the situation was taken so seriously.

"Everybody's got such a bad impression of Dugway, so this doesn't help anything," said Paul Ferre resident. "But at least people should know that it was brought out in the open and not hidden."

All operations involving the handling of chemical agents were put on hold until an internal review is completed to determine where the error occurred and how the Army can prevent the incident from being repeated.

"It reminds us what we do is a deadly business and we take it very seriously," he said. "The reality is what we deal with is very, very dangerous material."

VX is described as an odorless, tasteless oily liquid that evaporates slowly.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, "VX is the most potent of all nerve agents," but also "the least volatile of the nerve agents, which means that it is the slowest to evaporate from a liquid into a vapor."

King said GB was the deadliest agent. He said it would take several gallons of VX to cause any real harm in chemical warfare.

"It is possible that any visible VX liquid contact on the skin, unless washed off immediately, would be lethal," according to the CDC's website. "Mild or moderately exposed people usually recover completely. Severely exposed people are not likely to survive."

Dugway sits on 800,000 acres of Utah's west desert. It is a government-owned facility used by the U.S. Army Reserves and the U.S. National Guard for maneuver training. It is also a U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command center where tests are occasionally run on defenses against biological and chemical weaponry.

Saratoga Springs man dies after ingesting workplace chemical

January 19th, 2010 @ 10:16pm
http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=148&sid=9398135


SARATOGA SPRINGS -- A Saratoga Springs man in his early 30s died Tuesday hours after ingesting a hazardous substance, and two dozen people at the health clinic where he went for treatment were quarantined, officials said.

Intermountain Healthcare spokeswoman Janet Frank said the man, who police identified as Mauricio Lacayo, apparently ingested selenomethionine at his job. She said early reports indicated Lacayo inhaled the substance, but she could not confirm that.

"We know that he was at work in Payson, where the exposure occurred," Frank said.

Frank says Lacayo worked at Sabinsa Corporation. The company's website says it manufactures synthetic substances used in pharmaceuticals and the nutrition industry.

Several hazmat crews in protective gear responded Lacayo's home near 130 West and Daybreak Lane in Saratoga Springs Tuesday afternoon.

Frank said Lacayo went home, changed his clothes, then went to the nearby InstaCare clinic because he wasn't feeling well. He later died at a hospital or on the way.

"It was a very sudden incident, and we're trying to track down exactly what the substance was that this gentleman ingested and what caused him to pass away," said Saratoga Springs police Cpl. Aaron Rosen.


Frank said in addition to the selenomethionine, Lacayo also had calcium citrate in his system; however, doctors believe it was the selenomethionine that killed him.

KSL News spoke with a neighbor who told us his wife was actually inside of that house babysitting Lacayo's children.

In addition to Lacayo's house, hazmat crews quarantined the InstaCare clinic where Lacayo sought help.

Frank says the clinic was shut down and 24 people there were quarantined. She says eight of them were decontaminated in a tent on the clinic site, but none complained of feeling ill.

"The responders do want to talk to the eight before they let the others go," she said. "I don't know of anyone else that should be worried (about) exposure."

Most of those quarantined at the InstaCare were cleared Tuesday night. Hazmat crews have spent most of their time at Lacayo's home, where his family and a neighbor are under close watch.

Other homes in Lacayo's neighborhood have not been evacuated as of yet.

'Aankoop politiepistool niet zuiver'

Uitgegeven: 28 januari 2011 07:38
Laatst gewijzigd: 28 januari 2011 07:39


AMSTERDAM - Een van corruptie betichte wapenleverancier is betrokken bij de aankoop van het nieuwe dienstpistool door de Nederlandse politie.


Wapengroothandel Technisch Bureau Müller (TBM) uit Arnhem, was in 2002 betrokken bij de omstreden aanbesteding van pepperspray, schrijft de Volkskrant.

Donderdag maakte het ministerie van Veiligheid en Justitie bekend dat de politie een nieuw pistool krijgt van fabrikant Sig Sauer. TBM is de officiële verkoopagent van Sig Sauer in Nederland.

De Rijksrecherche doet onderzoek naar de aankoop van de pepperspray, omdat er mogelijk sprake is van corruptie. De Rotterdamse agent die daarbij door TBM zou zijn omgekocht, speelt ook een rol bij de aanbesteding van de dienstpistolen.

Specificaties

De agent was in de tijd van de aanbesteding van pepperspray materiedeskundige. Hij zou de specificaties voor de spray zo hebben gemanipuleerd dat TBM de aanbesteding won.

De krant schrijft dat de agent als materiedeskundige heeft meegeschreven aan de technische specificaties van het nieuwe politiewapen.

Onregelmatigheden

Op verzoek van minister van Veiligheid en Justitie Ivo Opstelten (VVD) werden twee onderzoeken uitgevoerd naar het verloop van de aanbesteding van het nieuwe politiepistool. Uit de onderzoeken bleek dat gedurende het aanbestedingsproces van het pistool er geen sprake was van onregelmatigheden.

Volgens de NOS is politievakbond NPB ongelukkig met de gang van zaken rond de aankoop van het nieuwe dienstwapen voor de politie. De testers van de wapens hebben de voorkeur voor een ander pistool.
