Factory-Like Schools Are the Child Labor Crisis of Today
In the early twentieth century, concern about children’s welfare in oppressive factories was a primary catalyst for enacting child labor laws and simultaneously tightening compulsory schooling laws. Yet, for many of today’s children, the time they spend in forced schooling environments is both cruel and hazardous to their health. Gone are the oppressive factories, but in their place are oppressive schools.
They were so obsessed with giving everyone a voice that they never stopped to wonder what would happen when everyone got one. And they never asked themselves what everyone meant.
Patients were shown homoerotic pictures while being given numerous electric shocks, or drugs that made them repeatedly vomit or defecate, often in multiple sessions over many months, in an attempt to encourage an association between pain and sexual feelings towards the same sex. One psychiatrist nurse revealed that he was instructed to leave patients in their bodily fluids. Some were left like this for days.
This is another clear example of why important protocols like WPA and WPA2 should be open and free to the public: so that security researchers can investigate and catch these sorts of vulnerabilities early in the life of a protocol, before it’s embedded in billions of devices.
Schools might seem like poor targets for ransom schemes. Cash-strapped and ill equipped to defend their networked systems, schools are low-hanging fruit. But unlike businesses that might take it on the chin when their systems are hijacked by The Dark Overlord, schools have little recourse and only one mandate: to ensure that students are safe and to verify that they face no actual, physical threat.
The issue goes beyond the niche technology of internet-enabled sex toys. The latest versions of some hearing aids also support BLE.
Viruses might have exploited embryos to make more copies of themselves. By keeping their hosts as stem cells for longer, the viruses were able to invade more parts of the embryo’s body.
O programa oferece um endereço de e-mail para contato e informa que o "preço" para o envio do código é um lote de 10 "nudes" do usuário
Scientists are not as objective as they think they are. It is an extremely destabilizing realization for someone whose entire career has been rooted in the belief in human objectivity.
Because conversations in Slack happen on a one-way conveyor belt, our team began feeling like they had to stay constantly connected to keep up. If you weren’t following conversations as they unfolded inside Slack, you were likely missing out on important discussions and decisions.
Boarding pass bar codes and QR codes usually contain all of the data shown on the front of a boarding pass, and some boarding pass barcodes actually conceal even more personal information than what’s printed on the boarding pass.
historically, the classification of diseases in psychiatry has been argued to be the outcome of a struggle in which “the most famous and articulate professor won”. The future must be based on evidence and a conversation which includes the perspectives of people who suffer – and cope well with – these experiences.
This is the underground practice of hacking back, where private companies and individuals retaliate against hackers to protect their own networks or data, often breaking laws in the process. But despite being something of an open secret in the information security world, examples of what exactly happens behind the scenes of these hacking campaigns rarely make their way into the public,
It's not "less secure than a PIN", it's differently secure and the trick now is in individuals choosing the auth model that's right for them.
Actions that are considered criminal when parents do them are somehow tolerated in the nation’s public schools. Locking children in dark closets or physically restraining them with ropes and ties can cause serious emotional trauma and bodily harm. Parents shouldn’t do it, and neither should the state.
In this 21st-century version, companies are using intellectual property law – intended to protect ideas – to control physical objects consumers think they own.
while politicians, including President Donald Trump, rally around the promise to "bring coal back," the residents in many of these communities would rather look to the future. And in their mind, that future depends on high-speed internet.
será que as empresas realmente estão se importando com os dados de seus usuários?
Eu faço essa pergunta muito seriamente, depois de alguns reports que eu já enviei para empresas nacionais e nunca recebi resposta.

while people may have a right to express their beliefs in public, that does not mean companies cannot take action when women are subjected to comments that perpetuate negative stereotypes about them based on their gender.
o ladrão vai onde está o dinheiro. E qual o melhor lugar que um hospital para ter retorno rápido? Um hospital não pode parar
captive portals work by doing exactly that: they intercept and alter the connection between the user and the site they are trying to visit. On an unencrypted HTTP connection, the user would not even notice this. But for sites secured with HTTPS, the web browser detects something or someone hijacking the connection
We usually assume that “government” refers to state authorities. Yet the state is only one kind of government.

Os veículos de comunicação alemães corroboraram que a filial brasileira espionou seus trabalhadores e suas ideias políticas, e os dados acabaram em “listas negras” em mãos do Dops.
Bolsonaro quer trazer o Exército de volta para a política. Nesse momento, há dois países fazendo isso: a Venezuela, onde Maduro só se sustenta porque entregou o Estado para os oficiais, e a Coreia do Norte, governada pela doutrina oficial Songun, a primazia das forças armadas.
while there’s no doubt that text-based verification can be vulnerable to hacks and scams, Manzuik argues that in cases where it’s all that providers offer, it’s still better than simply using passwords.
“It definitely is risky, but it also depends on your personal threat model,” he says. “For the average person, I think having SMS is a lot better than having nothing at all.
Just as robotics has transformed manufacturing, tools like Wolfram|Alpha are forcing us to rethink an educational system by challenging it to rise to the new technological standard. Either we reshape our schools to embrace tools like Wolfram|Alpha, or we risk becoming living artifacts in a rapidly progressing world.
Enquanto isso, as cadeias em todo o Brasil enfrentam o problema da superlotação por conta da chegada de novas levas de acusados de tráfico. Casos como o do presidiário condenado por conta de 0,02 gramas de maconha. Muitos dos presos são mulheres e negros, quase todos são pobres.
The findings surprised both researchers: A dozen of the 14 compounds were still as potent as they were when they were manufactured, some at almost 100 percent of their labeled concentrations.
Don’t turn your handset off in response to a flurry of nuisance calls. This can be a ploy used by fraudsters to delay victims noticing a loss of service when a sim is swapped.
The vulnerability isn't as severe as it sounds, as an attacker would need to trick a victim into downloading an MSI file in the first place. Furthermore, the exploit code is executed with the victim's privileges. Tcause more damage, the attacker would also need to elevate his access to root-level to be truly effective.
A equação econômico-financeiro dessa política pública corre o risco de tornar a privacidade um artigo de luxo, de uma classe que não precisa de assistência social. Nesse caso em específico, por mais bem-intencionada que seja a proposta, a inclusão gera paradoxalmente exclusão.
Quem saía de casa às 5h da manhã, terá que sair às 3h se os patrões assim desejarem. Muito complicado para uma categoria que não tem relógio de ponto
As mulheres eram usadas como pretexto para Sampaio se aproximar dos parlamentares. Os diálogos interceptados revelam que um dos interesses do suspeito era a regulamentação da fosfoetanolamina, conhecida como pílula do câncer.
58% dos brasileiros consultados para o levantamento disseram que se sentem seguros ao usar Wi-Fi grátis
“Games provide a sense of waking in the morning with one goal: I’m trying to improve this skill, teammates are counting on me, and my online community is relying on me,” said Jane McGonigal, a video game scholar and game designer. “There is a routine and daily progress that does a good job at replacing traditional work.”
Broadcom Wi-Fi chips embedded in Android and iOS devices are vulnerable to a bug that allows an attacker to execute code on their devices, without any interaction needed from the user.
Password strength indicators like those above are nothing more than simple calculators. They know nothing of human behaviour and that's an absolutely critical element of how passwords are created, managed and indeed compromised. "Good" password indicators don't necessarily mean they're good and "bad" ones don't necessarily mean they're bad.
Millennial consumers are more attracted than their elders to cooking at home, ordering delivery from restaurants, and eating quickly, in fast-casual or quick-serve restaurants
In the Anglo-Saxon world it is typical to think of election campaigns as being about persuading people and making them like you. This ignores another side of campaigning: lowering the turnout of people who support your opponents
Wouldn't companies push back against such demands? Possibly: but it's a much harder fight to win if it's not just the UK making the demand, but an international coalition of governments putting pressure on them to obey the same powers.
attackers used DoublePulsar to steal an IDT contractor’s credentials. Then they deployed ransomware in what appears to be a cover for their real motive: broader access to IDT’s businesses.
This is a place where you can do your worst without retaliation or prosecution,” says Geers, the NATO ambassador. “Ukraine is not France or Germany. A lot of Americans can’t find it on a map, so you can practice there.” (At a meeting of diplomats in April, US secretary of state Rex Tillerson went so far as to ask, “Why should US taxpayers be interested in Ukraine?”)
