Thought control from Mayor Facebook

Having heard that YouTube – owned by Facebook – has shut down the postings of David Icke, a proclaimer of weird theories about the origin of Covid-19, it seems interesting, to say the least, that we now have thought control of the Internet imposed upon us.

Just wonder whether an alpha-male like David Icke will take that laying down. I don’t agree with his opinion, that G5 could be responsible for Corona Virus but it is an opinion, wrong or right. People no longer have the choice to listen to nonsense now.

I noticed that YouTube also deleted one of my videos. It was actually factually correct but not very pretty and filmed in a darkened room. It dealt with the origin of the Freemasons, a subject that was discussed on social media 30 years ago. Not that I am particularly interested in it, but it is noticable that YouTube thought it needs to be removed.

On the matter of enrichment, I thought the more the better. And as long as it doesn’t promote open violence or hate why can’t people say what they think any longer?

Just went shopping the other day and really appreciated that we have so many shops from people of different cultures who all sell basically the same stuff but sell it for their own communities from different outlets.

Trading standards could come along and say, they will not allow shops from people from differing cultural backgrounds but they don’t. It is not allowed to discriminate against other cultures, so why is it allowed to discriminate against whacky ideas by some individuals?

David Icke does not promote denial of the Holocaust. He merely thinks that G5 has to do with Corona Virus. The flat earthers are allowed to publish.

Perhaps what people need to do is to hire their own internet servers, which do not rely on major publishers and publish their own stuff by their own servers.

I curently use WordPress but do not need the platform.

I have noticed a big drop in postings on Facebook. It seems to get out of fashion.

Humanity in overdrive

I still think that most things can be explained by logic rather then maths formulae or therories of any kind. Formulae are merely good to quantify and bring into a presentable format.

The Corona Virus, such as any Pandemic is a result of a human community entering an overdrive situation in which the actual physical bodies involved can no longer cope with the biological results of their own action.

Civilisation is in overdrive and has repetitive mechanisms and variables which are self-defeating. For example financial rules – wrote about that years ago – all they produce are huge debts with some profits for the few top investors, which produced the last great international financial collapse.

Now civilisation has developed superb transport systems and other production methods, which purely produce larger quantities of everything but in that process biological processes have been largely ignored.

As I already blogged for years doctors plainly ignored the source of viral infections.

Just watched Devs, the newest drama on the BBC iPlayer and I am quite disappointed that this merely shows some old-fashioned pixallation techniques and human nightmares, throws it all together.

So that brought me to write the stuff above. Hope it helps.

 

Thinking about Heathrow

Extinction Rebellion is a movement sponsored by Billionnaires and those having gotten rich from the old way of doing business.

Now, come to think of it, Britain being an Island nation, relying on transport and especially so, air travel, Extinction Rebellion pours a lot of energy and money into fighting the expansion of Heathrow Airport, just as Britain has left the EU.

Of course the Paris Climate agreement needs to be properly referenced in thecourt proceedings about a third runway, but the loss of the expansion case is only a temporary stoppage and will be addressed by the appeal that Heathrow Airport plans to do. It’s a matter of changing the wording and show proper reference to the agreement.

Whilst I strongly support the reduction of carbon emissions world-wide, which would include an improvement of air-travel for all countries. Extinction Rebellion spent and continuous to spend an awful lot of energy to concentrate on Britain, doing an extra sacrificial deed and asks us to cut off our almost only viable connection to the outside world.

Of course we do have ships, we do have the Euro tunnel to Paris and Belgium but why ask Britain to be the first to reduce commercial activity.

Of course if Britain cannot have air capacity, they would re-channel air traffic via France but the air travel as a whole will not be reduced.

It is a matter of changing methods of transport and trade world-wide, so that all nations have a fair amount of responsibility.

It seems doubly weird that Keir Starmer, prospective leader for the Labour Party, strongly supports Extinction Rebellion and so does Sadiq Khan. Is it any wonder that Extinction Rebellion now has put up camp in one of London’s most left-wing council’s namely Tower Hamlets and moved into our commutiy centre.

Apparently residents have not been consulted prior to this. Our local area is getting deprived of services and they get replaced by birds, bees flowers and fruit trees; and we hold a totally free, yearly fireworks extravaganca nearby. As if that will pay our council taxes.

I  suppose you can achieve sensible world-wide policies by supporting inventions that develop the new technology we need and not by stopping traffic. Extinction Rebellion put their eggs into the demonstrations basket. How crude.

Their radical actions are designed to actively disturb our economy by stopping traffic, interrupting public transport to weaken our economy but that does not help changing technology.

If it’s a pretty woman

I am extremely concerned to learn about the suicide of a fire brigade officer whilst on duty in the early hours of today in the West Midlands.  In 2019 more police officers died through suicide than in the line of duty. Yet, that story does not even get the fraction of attention that the Caroline Flack story got.

I don’t want to say that one life is worth more than another but I think that the lady suffered from depression is a matter that should have been addressed via her GP or private health service, whichever she prefers.

It seems rather unfair that her prosecution is so overrated and the CPS gets the blame, what about the partner who suffered domestic abuse?

It is more than regrettable that people die needlessly and through their own actions. Generally that problem has to be addressed.

Obviously it is very distressing for a large amount of people if a very popular person commits suicide, that increases stress levels for all of us. But to blame the media for the problems is just completely unfair and unrealistic.

I had some very bad media reports for years and had to put up with it. It happens. Some politicians put up with severe media preasures and survive it. That is a matter of personal strength.

I want to offer sincere condolences to the family and friends of Caroline. I only started to watch Love Island this series and think it must be very stressful to openly deal with very personal and intimate feelings in front of the world and half-naked at most times. Especially as the Islanders don’t have projects to follow other than personal relationships, that must be extremely difficult to cope with.

 

Integrate mobile phone use, don’t ban them

the forbidden fruit syndrom is often a reason why children want excessive access to phones when they are supposed to be sleeping because there is no time during the day to use phones constructively and usefully.

Schools forbid them, then there is home-work and play time and then there is bed-time, which is the only time to catch up on the social networking.

Because children cannot get a useful relationship with their phone for school use, they tend to get driven towards those awful apps that can have a negative effect on them.

At least some schools already integrate tablets with school work but often tablets and phones use the same apps.

Coding is a very important skill and cannot be taught early enough, teaching kids how to create apps can never start early enough. Get them to do it in nursery.

Since a lot of home work and learning material is already online schools should really modernise up very fast to improve the situation.

Children will be much less likely to access their phones secretly and during the night, when they can use them during the day with good purposes, e.g. for school work and in school.

Why push phones into the undesirable category when all adults use them all the time?

The Amazon in various ways

What the Amazon rainforest is for the world, Amazon online is for shoppers. Just tried out Amazon fresh and the experience was definitely worth it.

Superb ordering, great logistics and the food is actually fresh and on time and as ordered.

I was very reluctant to even try Amazon fresh and kept on going on the established companies like Asda, Sainsbury’s Tesco and Ocado. But they are old-fashioned and out-dated compared to Amazon.

Must mention that Ocado is good and delivers fresh and on time but it is expensive.

I just love a bargain and the offers on Amazon fresh are unsurpassed and it is actually better value for money than going to a supermarket and get the bargains of the day.

From the selection process, the shopping experience at Amazon online is not much different from going to Lidl but Amazon has at all times a wider variety of products available.

What I love about going to Lidl is that they have some cheap products I love like German Rye bread or bakeware and German sausages but they also sell a mix of products and the food shelves are mixed with the general store shelves, so that I do not have to spend hours trodding through huge areas to find what I am looking for and their products are seasonally appropriate.

That is the big difference in this Lidl concept, that it offers seasonally selected items, whilst in other supermarkets, they store all the stuff all year round – with the exception for Christmas decorations perhaps – and occupy huge amounts of shelf space, and it takes ages to navigate the stores. Large Asda, Tesco or Sainsbury’s stores takes half a day to navigate. But Lidl doesn’t do online orders.

Amazon online offers all that at the touch of a button.

What I find especially ideal with Amazon fresh is that it is sooooooooooo easy to add on to an order and they immediately alert you if you can’t add something on and you can add things on much nearer to the delivery date.

All their goods are sent in paper bags and come without a bag charge and they have wicked special offers on top of all that good service.

Just thought I mention it. I just love it if I do not have to complain that fruit is off – as it sometimes happens with Sainsbury’s deliveries.

I want to mention that I am not sponsored by any company to advertise them, these are genuine personal experiences, which I want to share. I am not dependant on any company agreements.

The cookie saturation

Just mentioned on a blog a couple of days ago that I am currently suffering from Plantar Fasciitis and promptly today, whilst I play a game online, during the advertising break, I get an ad stating that there is an ideal gadget to help me in the mornings. If I only buy this item and put it on in the mornings, my foot problems, due to Plantar Fasciitis, will be much better.

Of course that is a result of cookies and algorithms re-calling matching ads, fed into some database by companies seeking customers, that then are played during my games to me to make me buy this item.

Of course that principle of making people use free market economy solutions would work if people had unlimited amounts of money to buy what somebody produces somewhere and then get it shipped to them.

Would we really still need doctors, a National Health that prescribes established medications to those wanting certified solutions rather than promoted ones?

When I search anything into a search engine, promptly following on from that for several days, I will get inundated with ads about articles relating to that search.

It’s just like that once an interest is shown that then gets thrown back into our faces again and again with the hope that we spend money on that item.

If we would have no other option than to buy what is being offered to us in case of a need, then we would probably end up getting back to woodoo or witch-craft solutions rather than optimised nationally approved medicines.

Where is the quality control and who checks what type of products get advertised to us? Those freedom of market economy gurus would be able to set the standards if they are the only ones having the power to provide solutions.

Probably Human Rights standards is the only mechanism that saves us from those wanting to sell us anything that goes without making sure we have enough money to buy the stuff.

The same old

When I had these legal proceedings going on in a court of law against various Labour Party members, the Guido Fawkes website was used by a lot of people to communicate on a foul and abusive basis.

Now again, the same principle has come into play again in that Guido Fawkes has become the communications hub to try and ridicule the Labour Party because some conversation was published that Jonathan Ashworth made to someone else, which was then published by Paul Staines.

I am frankly very surprised that the BBC even bothers to invite Paul Staines to panel discussions of sorts and asks for that man’s opinion. The sensationalism associated with Guido Fawkes is more than embarrassing.

Quite remarkable that Labour members continuously need to seek reassurance via the right-wing communications networks. But I did at the time establish that the Guido Fawkes website was run via a German based Internet server.

National Broadband

The Labour Party is pushing for the roll-out of national broadband and wants to nationalise BT for that purpose.

As a former webmaster I must support this scheme because it helps the nation to utilise national communications networks, which are the least vulnerable to exploitation.

What people generally do not understand is that anybody who provides broadband hosting services, can completely and totally monitor the communications that are done via that network.

There is no privacy. Privacy is an illusion that people generally have. The more service providers there are, the less certain can people be who actually can monitor their activities.

Every email sent, call made, message, picture is stored somewhere on a server and can be called up and looked at by a person if needed. Even when they are on an encrypted services, the service provider can still look up your messages in plain sight, even though others cannot see that.

If you are now subscribed to a hosting service for your Internet communications or broadband, they can actually look at and monitor what you communicate.

I had access to server-side communications, I ran my own commercial websites and could store any communications made via the web services.

I would be very careful to sign up with web service or broadband providers, which are springing up like mushroooms all over the place. The more there are the more it is likely that your information and communications can be exploited and shared without your knowledge.

Rushanara a proud remainer

Just got the first Labour leaflet through my door and Rushanara Ali states she is a proud remainer.

So much for all those on TV debates who call Labour pro leave and waiting to do the Brexit. Either Rushanara has an individual deal as local and established MP or Labour has a general policy of remain.

I am happy about this because that clears the air with those who will argue for pro-remain and keep on saying Labour is for Leave. Rushanara also argues for a People’s vote on the issue, which is fair.

The last referendum was years ago and so wishy-washy, it was unable to be executed. This time round people should get acceptable optionso n Brexit with the referendum.

I will be voting Labour this time because years of austerity have left Britain starving of investment. Rushanara is always communicating about issues, I contact her with.

Our technology is behind Japan, who as a similar Island nation are fully covered with broadband.

Fibre broadband everywhere will attract investment and also provide important security for all parts of Britain. I also hope that Labour will introduce free University education for students of British students in Britain.

I don’t think that private broadband firms have the money to put on a full network of cabelling throughout Britain because they would need the money for the work, which remote people and villages simply could not afford.

The lack of communications facility through a lack of broadband makes our communities vulnerable to abuse by criminals, who have advanced technological methods to their advantage. Our residents and businesses need to be able to communicate with law enforcement and potential customers for business ventures.

Free university education should save a lot of money in administration fees for the scheme that is currently in place. Students simply do not constantly want those depressing letters, telling them how much they own and how much the debt has increased with added interest. Perhaps one could ask for a contribution to university education once a student has graduated and gotten established with a very well paid post without sending constant letters reminding them. Perhaps one could attach a clause waving any pay back of the degree will be benefitting the UK.

Many other countries have nationalised utilities, which the Tories have all privatised with detrimental effect on services. Tories are crazy about privatisation and put the principle before effect. Any policy is only as good as the service it provides.
