Proofpoint Sues Facebook To Get Permission To Use Lookalike Domains For Phishing Tests

Cyber-security powerhouse Proofpoint has filed a lawsuit this week against Facebook in relation to the social network's attempt to confiscate domain names the security firm was using for phishing awareness training. From a report: The case is a countersuit to a Facebook filing from November 30, 2020, when the social network used a UDRP (Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution) request to force domain name registrar Namecheap to hand over several domain names that were mimicking Facebook and Insta...

Comment on rigatoni alla vodka by Lauri

For some reason I had never made vodka sauce but I saw it on Instagram in December and decided to try it. When I told my teenagers (14B, 16G)what we were having for dinner, they immediately said “Oh, that’s Gigi Hadid’s pasta”. For some reason she has been behind a huge resurgence in this recipe, which is probably why it ended up on my feed… Seriously, Google “Gigi Hadid” and before you finish typing her name, the second result will be “Gigi Hadid pasta recipe”… anyway, it has become a staple ...

Snow Again

I woke up one morning to the second snow in Paris this season. Snow is rare in Paris, or at least it used to be but for many reasons I didn’t get out early like I should have done for photos. I had lots of things to do plus a doctor appointment. When I finally got out the sidewalks were slippery and I felt less like exploring. The temperature never got above 30 degrees. Well, blah, blah, blah. Lots of reasons for doing little photography. The view from my window looking down below. I...

Nationalists at Tokyo’s Yasukuni Shrine on National Foundation Day

Ten years ago, I had the good fortune of wandering over to Tokyo’s Yasukuni Shrine at just the right time, on just the right day, and just as the rain very briefly turned to snow. The shot below is my favourite from those fortuitous few minutes, and should you want to, several more from the same set can be seen here. Since then, February 11th, National Foundation Day, has been a noted day in my diary, and I’ve been back to see the same spectacle almost every single year. Of course it’s highly ...

Leading Thoughts for February 11, 2021

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with: I. Historians Will and Ariel Durant on the need for educated citizens: “Democracy is the most difficult of all forms of government, since it requires the widest spread of intelligence, and we forgot to make ourselves intelligent when we made ourselves sovereign. Education has spread, but intelligence is perpetually retarded by the fertility of the simple...

TikTok emerges as a political battleground in Navalny-stirred Russia

On one side are young people using the app to create videos in support of free speech, rallying the public against the government and its treatment of Alexander Navalny, the anti-Putin, anti-corruption politician and activist. On the other is a government that has quickly v...
